No apparent solution in meeting between Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush over their individual plans to run for the White House
This post was updated: Oh, to be a fly on the wall when Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney sit down face-to-face. The Former Florida Governor and the 2012 GOP presidential nominee will sit down privately in Utah, according to a New York Times report. Thursday’s meeting comes as Bush and Romney, both considering presidential campaigns next year, are contacting major donors to line up support. “This meeting has long been planned. Governor Bush looks forward to visiting with Governor Romney,” Bush spokeswoman Kristy Campbell told USA TODAY. The prospect of both Bush and Romney facing off in a Republican primary is a tantalizing one, since they each appeal to the GOP establishment eager to take back the White House. The New York Times report, based on information from two unnamed “prominent party members,” said Bush proposed the meeting before Romney made his announcement two weeks ago to some of his top donors that he’s interested in a third presidential race.

Two prominent Republicans fueled speculation Sunday that they would jump into the increasingly crowded fray for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee both suggested they were considering a bid for the Oval Office. “I’m definitely looking into it,” Graham said on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday morning. Huckabee, on ABC’s "This Week," was a bit more emphatic. “There's a very strong likelihood that some time later in the spring, which has always been my timetable, I'll make some kind of a declaration and clearly state my intentions," said Huckabee. "I'll put it that way.” These statements, however vague, put both Graham and Huckabee in the ring with a handful of prominent Republicans who are beginning an early shuffle toward the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, including Jeb Bush, the governor of Florida, and Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts and the 2012 Republican nominee for the White House.

Mitt Romney considering a run for US Presidential Elections 2016: Mitt Romney, the Republican US presidential nominee in 2012, told a meeting of donors on Friday that he is considering another White House run in 2016, a source familiar with the comments said. The Former Massachusetts Governor, who has sent mixed signals about the likelihood of another campaign, told a small group of donors in New York that he was thinking about running and to "tell your friends" he was considering it, the source said. The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the comments, said Romney did not give a timetable for making a decision about whether to launch what would be his third presidential campaign. Romney failed to win the nomination in 2008 and lost the general election to President Barack Obama in 2012. Romney's statement comes as some of the party's top donors begin to line up behind former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who said in December he would actively explore a presidential run. If Romney entered the race, he ...

For years, GOP activists have insisted that their party can only return to the White House by anointing a “true conservative” as the party’s standard bearer. But a new Bloomberg Politics Poll turns that Republican precept, and a few other pieces of conventional wisdom, on its head. The poll, released Monday, tested Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s chances against five Republicans-- former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Texas senator Ted Cruz, Kentucky senator Rand Paul, and 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney-- in hypothetical 2016 presidential matchups. It found that Clinton holds solid leads over all five, which is hardly a surprise considering her overwhelming name recogntion advantage (94 percent of voters have formed an opinion of Clinton-- 52 percent view her favorably and 42 percent view her unfavorably-- while less than 80 percent have an opinion on each of the Republicans aside from the well-known Romney). - See more at:
"Jeb’s road to the White House could be trickier than he expects"
December 17, 2014 NBC NEWS FIRST READ Jeb Bush's Popularity Challenge Jeb Bush is now even closer to a 2016 presidential run, after announcing Tuesday that he is "actively" exploring a White House bid. And our new NBC/WSJ poll reveals why he appears to be doing this so early: He has A LOT of work to do. Despite having nearly perfect name identification, he's more popular -- at least right now -- among the Beltway crowd and deep-pocketed GOP donors than he is among most American voters. According to our poll, just 31% of all voters say they could see themselves supporting him for president, while 57% say they can't. He's more popular among Republicans (55% support, 34% can't support), which is the second-best GOP score in the poll behind Mitt Romney (see at the bottom). But he fares worse among Democrats (9%-79%) and, more importantly, independents (34%-52%). These numbers follow our Nov. 2014 NBC/WSJ poll, which found Bush's fav/unfav rating at a net-negative 26%-33%. Of course, this is all subject to ch ...
Hear ye, hear ye! Jeb Bush is considering a presidential run. I urge everyone reading NOT to support him! We don't need another family tie in the White House. We need someone without exterior motive or ego pushing their agenda and votes. I guarantee you, if he runs, he will try to capitalize off of his name Bush. We need a leader with integrity, no ties, no nonsense. Give me Ben Carson, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, and Ted Cruz! If none of these get nominated I'd be happy to see Mitt Romney get the nomination again!
Jeb Bush is continuing to fuel speculation about his possible plans for a 2016 presidential run, telling an interviewer Sunday that he thinks “almost daily” about what a good president Mitt Romney would be compared to the man in the White House now.

CNN Poll: Romney tops Obama but loses to Clinton Washington (CNN) - If a rematch of the 2012 Presidential Election were held today, GOP nominee Mitt Romney would top President Barack Obama in the popular vote, according to a new national survey. But a CNN/ORC International poll also indicates that if Romney changes his mind and runs again for the White House, Hillary Clinton would best him by double digits in a hypothetical showdown. The survey, released Sunday morning, also suggests that more Americans see Clinton as a strong and capable leader than those who feel the same way about Obama. But Clinton's numbers on five personal characteristics have slightly edged down the past few months. And the poll points to a jump the past month in support among Republicans for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

Hillary`s long *** book has no message it`s all mush/ /Liberal journalists have panned her performance on the stage. Her first stumble was in announcing to Diane Sawyer that she and Bill had left the White House in 2001 “dead broke.” She tried to gain sympathy and show empathy through poor-mouthing. Not since Mitt Romney announced he “likes firing people” in the midst of 10% unemployment has a supposedly serious politician so badly gauged the popular mood. Hillary was hit with unfavorable stories recalling the fact that she left the Executive Mansion with a paltry $8 million book advance. And Poor Boy Bill would soon snag another $15 million for his book. Then, of course, there were the speeches, lots of speeches, at $200,000 a pop. Determined not to let her role in the Benghazi affair dominate her “rollout,” the Former Secretary of State went to what she presumed would be friendly interviewers. But she had to “walk back” her poor little rich girl comments to Diane Sawyer. That’s never a ...

Dear Friends and Supporters of Mitt Romney: When I created this Group, it wasn't just to put up cool photos of Mitt and tack on juicy comments, and then get excited when you "like" what I post. We -- you and I and America-- are in a world of hurt, and this is why: There is nothing more destructive than an overgrown ego, and Barack Obama has one that could fill Yankee Stadium. As you know, in 2008 the liberal sheep were so insanely desperate for a democrat in the White House that they opened their veins and voted an untested, un-vetted, unknown candidate into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Likewise in 2012, despite the obvious warnings and clear and present dangers aimed like nuclear warheads at our infrastructure, liberals continued to walk and talk like terminal cancer patients who chose to reject the urgent surgery that would save their life and instead bought the cucumber and tofu salad that the non-M.D., quack nutritionist-poets proclaimed would cure them... and voted Obama to remain in the White House.

Will Texas go blue in 2016? After Tues. primary results, it is becoming very likely. Every Texas schoolchild learns with pride that their far-flung state comprises 254 counties. But did you know that most Texans live in just 10 of them? In 2012, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney evenly split the vote in those top 10. Obama won in the biggest five. The Republican base gets whiter, older and more male, while the big urban counties get more and more not. Battleground Texas is the political operation already working hard in the state to organize and motivate the Democratic vote. Featured prominently on its website is a quote from Dan Patrick, the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor: “If we lose Texas, we never elect a Republican to the White House ever again because the electoral votes of New York, California and Texas make it mathematically impossible.”

It is amusing watching the Republican candidates for U.S. Senate from Georgia savage each other in the final days before Tuesday's primary. It appears to be a contest to see who can one up the next guy (or gal) as the most hateful. And silly. We've see crying babies with stinky diapers; stork docs trying to look like average barbecue lovin' workers living from paycheck to paycheck; gated community, Golden Isles residents in blue jean jackets, etc. We have a woman candidate who wants you to vote for her because she is a college dropout; this she wears as a badge of honor because stinky diaper, trying to emulate Mitt Romney, was caught on videotape telling his 47% wealthy audience she's stupid. And every one of them promises to single handedly repeal Obamacare and thwart the evil despot in the White House in his quest to wrest Congress' power from Article I of the Constitution and implant it in Article II. Lol But I like U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston's approach the best. The man is like the Billy Joel tune, famou ...

The revelation of Obama Administration memos proving that it knowingly perpetrated a fraudulent cover story blaming a little watched video for the attack on the US Benghazi Consulate is, according to former National Security Council Spokesman Tommy Vietor, “old news unworthy of further concern.” “Look Dude,” Vietor told Fox News' Bret Baier, “all that happened like two years ago. There's nothing anybody can do about it now. I think Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton established that it doesn't make any difference at this point.” Vietor also defended the State Department's and White House's pivot toward protecting the Administration from damaging political fall out. “While it was sad that four Americans died in Benghazi, the greater threat to the Administration from the domestic insurgency led by Mitt Romney had to be dealt with in a decisive manner,” Vietor argued. “The four casualties we suffered in Benghazi was a minor setback. A loss to Romney would've had far graver impacts fo ...

I'd really like to know why the media has made it such a profound topic of debate that Hilary Clinton is expecting a grand child, along with implications of how it might effect her role in the White House.

So, Michelle Obama, her two daughters, mother, and the rest of the staff are now back safely in the United States. For those who missed recent first lady news, she had gone on another expensive vacation to China. During this trip, which was taxpayer-funded, by the way, she stayed in an $8,400 per night hotel suite and managed to irritate just about everyone she came into contact with. Even the hotel staff was anxiously awaiting her return to the US. Now, there is a report in the New Republic that exposes how Michelle runs her part of the White House. These first-hand accounts are taken from interviews and quotes with a number of former aids to the First Lady in what people call the ‘East Wing’ of the White House. The piece was actually written by a former aid himself, assistant Press Secretary Reid Cherlin, calling it the “worst wing,” saying how Michelle is incredibly demanding and hard to please. Some of the aids stated that the environment is very stressful and it would take someone who was ver ...
Zionist Jews are the biggest donors that finance the US Presidential Election campaign of both the Democratic President Barack Obama as well as his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney. The leading declared financier of US election campaigns in 2012 is casino tycoon Sheldon Adelson, who has so far donated $34.2 million to Republican Political Action Committees that support Romney’s publicity bid to win enough votes to move to the White House, the Associated Press reported Friday. A staunch supporter of Israel, says the report, “he also is a contributor to the Republican Jewish Coalition, which spent $920,000 since 2002 backing bills aimed at pressuring Iran and enhancing US security cooperation with Israel.” In Israel, meanwhile, Adelson owns the widely circulated, pro-Benjamin Netanyahu free daily paper Israel Hayom. Worth an estimated $25 billion, Adelson oversees the Las Vegas Sands Corp., which runs casino and resort interests in Las Vegas, Singapore, and Pennsylvania, and Sands China Ltd., a bunc ...
Mitt Romney says President Obama was naive in his handling of Russia. The implication being that America would be better off with Mitt Romney in the Oval Office. Anybody who thinks America would be better off today with the Mitt Romney regime in the White House the last two years raise your hands. Yeah, me neither.
Truer words were never written: For a young voter or voter of color, voting for Democrats isn't a matter of hope for a better future. It's basically a defensive crouch to prevent the insane sociopaths from taking over. To provide real hope, Democrats would have to start pushing for a $15 minimum wage, for basic universal income, for single-payer healthcare, for a green jobs Apollo Program, for student loan forgiveness, and similar policies. As it is, there's no real reason for an infrequent Democratic voter to come to the polls. Sure, it's important to stop the likes of Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney from sitting in the White House, and appointing decent judges to the Supreme Court is nice. But there's no way Democrats are going to solve their midterm problem without providing a real, positive vision for the country.

Wall Street Republicans have begun their White House dance less than halfway into a second Barack Obama term they tried to prevent with record donations to Mitt Romney.

The more time that goes by and the further removed from the 2012 Presidential Election we become the more convinced I become that Mitt Romney should un the presidency again. Richard Nixon did it after he narrowly lost to JFK. It was the closest election in history. Years later, he ran again and won. Ronald Reagan ran more than once before he won. Why do I think this? There are several reasons. 1. Mitt Romney is still the Republican with the best chance to win the White House. He has the best chance of winning the undecided voters and swing votes of any Republican because he is not seen as a Tea Party guy or extremist. Tea Party people will vote for the Republican nominee no matter who it is. That 5% swing vote in the middle determines the Swing States and the election.

between the parties. If fraud is underlying the contract, it is null and void, invalidated, not enforced. The question: Did Barack Obama lie his way into the White House? And if so, has a fraud been committed against you? And does it even matter? It was during a very heated campaign in 2012 that President Obama and his sycophants sold us that bill of goods about a flash mob and hateful video causing the massacre of four Americans, including the president's personal appointee in Benghazi, Ambassador Chris Stevens. That was a lie and they knew it. And then another lie: ObamaCare. The president swears that we can keep our doctors and our health care plans if we like them. The fraud continued when Obama – President Obama – belittled then-candidate Mitt Romney. “When you were asked what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia, not al Qaeda, you said Russia,” Obama said. “And the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the Cold War’s been over f ...

Romney Donors Like Jeb for President in 2016 Mitt Romney raised more than $1.1 billion in his 2012 campaign, and Jeb Bush is the potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate most likely to enjoy support from his donors. "Every single Romney donor we spoke with this week listed the Former Florida Governor as their top choice," Wesley Lowery wrote in The Washington Post. "The donors said that, like Romney, Bush's time as governor proved he can be an effective leader and manager." Romney donors also consider Bush the most electable of the potential GOP candidates, which the donors believe is the most important asset for a candidate. "If Jeb Bush is in the race, he clears the field," one major Romney donor told Lowery. "The natural inclination for Mitt supporters would be to gravitate toward Jeb Bush because he's a candidate that can win a national race." Bush hasn't made up his mind on a White House bid, and has said he will decide later this year, according to The Wall Street Journal. As for other poten ...
via Tammy Bruce: This list explains why so many people are getting a bit dreamy about what might have been: • If a Republican had been in the White House since 2009, either John Mccain or Mitt Romney, Border Patrol agent Brian Terry would be alive today. • Some 300 Mexicans killed by drug cartels using Operation Fast and Furious guns would still be alive. • Benghazi never would have happened, and Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Tyrone Wood, Glen Doherty and Sean Smith would be enjoying their lives. • There would have been no scapegoated YouTube video maker sitting in jail. • Mr. Obama wouldn’t be spying on CBS’ Sharyl Attkisson, Fox’s James Rosen or every Associated Press reporter. • We wouldn’t have lost Egypt, Libya and Syria. • Ukraine wouldn’t be on fire and approaching Civil War. • We wouldn’t be making it easier for Iran to get the bomb. • China would likely not be preparing for war with Japan. • The Internal Revenue Service wouldn’t be targeting political groups ...
Posted at 11:38 AM ET, 12/28/2012 Will less art and music in the classroom really help students soar academically? By Tyleah Hawkins Journalism students at Howard University’s school of communications were deeply engaged in this year’s presidential campaign as Barack Obama and Mitt Romney battled for the White House. The students wrote widely about the candidates and the issues. Some traveled to Ohio, a key battleground state, and wrote about classmates who canvassed voters there as volunteers for the Obama campaign. Others wrote about college students struggling to pay rising tuitions after their parents had lost jobs and homes to foreclosures. One student wrote about black Republicans who supported Romney and their status as double minorities – minorities within the Republican Party and among black voters who largely supported Obama. Throughout the year, students reported on the economic and social challenges that working people and poor communities were facing, issues that were being neglected b ...
This is what genuine class looks like, folks! Feast your eyes on a couple of people who have been to *** and back since they moved into the White House, yet have been able to keep their cool. History will be very kind to this president and first lady. I am reminded of a movie I saw yesterday concerning the biography of that great justice, Oliver Wendell Holmes (nobody like that sits on the USSC anymore), and toward the end of the movie, he is told that Franklin Delano Roosevelt has come to wish him a happy birthday in person. Justice Holmes (who has just retired) exclaims, "President Roosevelt has come to visit me? He is a Democrat and I am a Republican! Well, no matter. Show him in. After all, he is the president, and I shall talk with him, behave myself, and treat him accordingly." Too bad there aren't more men of Oliver Wendell Holmes' character and mindset in high places today. It would have been far more comfortable for President Obama if there were. This president has been forced to try to work wit ...

A good comedian goes after the leader in the White House and for 13 of Jay Leno's 22 years as host of "The Tonight Show," there was a democrat in the White House. Party affiliation aside for any comedian, a joke is a joke: Here were Jay's top 10 punchlines over those years. 1. Bill Clinton (4,607); 2. George W. Bush (3,239); 3. Al Gore (1,026); 4. Barack Obama (1,011); 5. Hillary Clinton (939); 5. *** Cheney (673); 7. Monica Lewinsky (454); 8. Bob Dole (452); 9. John Mccain (426); 10. Mitt Romney (361).

So why have we been worrying about job creation all this time? Fundamental transformation, complete. White House: It's A Good Thing That Obamacare Will Drive 2.5 Million Americans Out Of The Workforce Yesterday, Washington’s official non-partisan bean-counter, the Congressional Budget Office, dropped a bomb. By 2024, says the CBO, Obamacare will reduce the size of the U.S. labor force by 2.5 million full-time-equivalent workers. That’s roughly triple what the CBO had estimated three years ago. Such a sizeable decline in the labor force will have substantial detrimental effects on the U.S. economic and fiscal picture. But the CBO wasn’t responsible for the most amazing thing that happened yesterday. That title belongs to the Obama White House, where Press Secretary Jay Carney claimed that 2.5 million Americans leaving the workforce was a good thing, because they would no longer be “trapped in a job.” Here’s what happened. In its annual, 182-page Budget and Economic Outlook, the CBO undertook an ...
Boston Herald on One more try for Mitt Romney? (Bay State pols so far distance selves from 2016 run): As Christie continues to deal with the massive scandal that placed a roadblock on his path to the GOP nomination, and as the Republican National Committee put new rules in place to make it easier for the party’s next presidential nominee to emerge from the primary less politically and financially battered, Republicans are scrambling for a Christie alternative. Could Romney be drafted by his party to try again? “A year ago I would have laughed at that question,” one strategist told me. “Today I’m not laughing.” So what is it that gives local candidates such perennial appeal? Maybe it’s just force of habit. After all, in the last quarter-century, only one Presidential Election cycle — 1996 — has been devoid of a potential candidate from Massachusetts, despite the fact that the last Bay State resident to actually win the White House was John F. Kennedy. What the state lacks in electoral vot ...

"What the Latest Iowa Poll Reveals About 2016 (Hint: Not Much)" from "The Rothenberg Political Report" A new Des Moines Register poll of Iowans’ attitudes toward potential 2016 presidential hopefuls has already received plenty of attention. That’s not surprising, I suppose, given the unquenchable thirst from some about anything to do with the next presidential race. The survey’s results give us some information — most of it entirely predictable — but the data doesn’t tell us who will win the 2016 Iowa caucuses or the White House a little less than three years from now. In June 2010, an Iowa poll of likely 2010 GOP primary voters found 62 percent having a favorable opinion of Mitt Romney, while Sarah Palin (58 percent) and Newt Gingrich (56 percent) posted the next highest favorable numbers. Of course, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum nosed out Mitt Romney to win the caucuses in 2012. Gingrich finished a distant fourth, behind the two leaders and retiring Texas Rep. Ron Paul. Texas Gov ...
The Time Thief Obama steals past the Nov. 30 deadline. By James Taranto December 4, 2013 NBC's Michael O'Brien had some fun yesterday paraphrasing President Obama's latest infliction on the ears of America: "Obama said his signature Health Care Reform law is going nowhere as long as he's in office." Obama gives a health-care speech. He just keeps giving and giving and giving. Associated Press "Going nowhere" could mean either "here to stay" or "unable to progress." A look at the text of the president's remarks makes clear, as if you have any doubt, that he means it in the former sense: "We're not repealing it as long as I'm president, and I want everybody to be clear about that. . . . We're not going to walk away from it." I'm not a crook. I did not have sexual relations with that woman. At least in the very short term, he appears to be right. National Journal reports that although "House Democrats are hardly ready to pop the champagne for HealthCare.gov . . . tensions eased Tuesday after White House off ...

Ohio, Florida, and several other States were duped in this last National Election. The Rightful Winner should be given his place in the White House, A.S.A.P. !!!
Obama Had DC Police Murder Woman Because She Carried His Love Child Raw Story has the details: A birther preacher is pushing the conspiracy theory that Miriam Carey, who was shot to death Oct. 3 after police said she tried to ram her car into a barrier outside the White House, was the mother of President Barack Obama’s illegitimate child. Rev. James David Manning, pastor of Atlah World Missionary Church who believes the president was born in Kenya, claims that Carey’s family has called for a paternity test to determine whether the woman’s 15-month-old daughter was fathered by the president. While Carey’s family has indeed asked U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to look into the fatal shooting, the only source for the claim about the family’s request for a paternity test seems to be additional videos posted online by Manning. Manning has previously claimed the President Obama murdered Andrew Breitbart and that Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich are secretly black. Manning also says that preachers sho ...
Chuck Todd: Boehner's Right And The White House Knows It On Morning Joe today, a clip was played of Speaker Boehner rejecting Obama's offer to permit insurers not to cancel non-complying policies for the next year. Boehner said he was "highly skeptical" the President "can do this administratively." NBC's Chuck Todd said the President didn't fix anything, "There's nothing that was fixed because he doesn't have the power to do it. John Boehner is right. And by the way, the White House knows it." On CBS This Morning, former GOP nominee Mitt Romney said "The real problem the President has is a broken promise. Millions of people are losing insurance and they were promised they would not. "It’s not going to be fixed until we fundamentally reshape Obamacare. Either repeal it, reshape it, or reform it.” On Fox, Charles Krauthammer said the press conference was for the benefit of "rebellious" House and Senate Democrats. This was "all about preventing an open rebellion among Democrats, which was provoked by the ...
What do you believe in that you can't prove? (random statistics for the day) * Over one-third of Americans believe we have been visited by aliens (50% said they weren't sure, but it was probable, leaving only 15% convinced there was no such thing). 10% believe they have actually seen alien spacecraft in the sky. Of those who believe, 80% think the White House is covering it up, and 50% believe there are Men-in-Black style agents who will wipe your memory or threaten you if you talk about it. * 65% of people think Obama would do a better job of dealing with an alien invasion than Mitt Romney. * In this same poll, 21% would call the Hulk, 12% would call Batman, and 8% would call Spider-Man. * 50% of people polled believe that Extraterrestrial Life exists somewhere in the universe. * 60% of people believe the story of Noah's Ark, word for word. * Around half of the people in the United States believe that God created earth somewhere between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago. * 39% believe in evolution. * 18% of ...
Who Said People Would Die? The Las Vegas Review-Journal penned a blistering editorial on Obama's BIG lie: "It's astonishing that, even as the president and his administration attempt to spin his stump-speech promise that if you liked your health care plan, you could keep it, the White House hasn't yet scrubbed its official website of evidence of the statement. The president's claim was best dismantled in this week's Wall Street Journal commentary by San Diego resident Edie Littlefield Sundby, who has survived stage 4 gallbladder cancer for seven years (the five-year survival rate is less than 2 percent) but will now lose the excellent insurance provider ($1.2 million paid out so far) and doctors (in San Diego, at Stanford University and in Houston) who have made her battle successful to this point. And the president's backers had the gall to tell voters in 2012 that Republican nominee Mitt Romney let people die from cancer." Right Start 11-11-13
Good Morning. Is the Republican Party actively helping the Tea Party to start a Civil War in this Country? Some districts controlled by Republicans in Colorado are voting on Election Day to succeed from the U.S., many conservatives in mainly Southern States are hoping to succeed also. The South will rise again, I lived in the South for 5 years and many time, I heard exactly that, racism is alive and well in this country. During the 2012 presidential campaign, a Getty Images photographer covering a Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan rally captured an image of a Romney/Ryan supporter wearing a T-shirt reading Put the white back in the White House. What area in this Country is the Republican Party the strongest? The answer is the south, and who in the Republican Party who caused the government shutdown (Tea Party) come from? Again the answer is the south. After Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast, 31 Republican Representatives voted no to give aid, we are all suppose to be Americans no matter what area we live in. What ar ...
1/16/08 Congratulations Larry: The only thing that was missing from your show was that this message was not paid for by Mitt Romney. Unfortunately we the people do not need another CEO President of the United State, which if Romney wins a trip to the White House you should definitely get to sleep in the Lincoln bedroom. Moreover, what is truly sad is that Democrats that completely boycotted the State of Michigan. John Edwards who understandably wants to win South Carolina missed a clear opportunity to collect a needed victory in Michigan without competition. Mrs. Clinton clearly picked up an easy victory without appearance and in my view is the only Democrat that could win if Michigan becomes the next Ohio, or Florida. I only hope that Michigan does understand that Romney is not a compassionate conservative just as George W. Bush was not a compassionate conservative either. Michigan would clearly suffer the faith of Massachusetts under the next four years under Romney as president. Larry how many o ...
05:00 PM ET What does it say that most of the 10 poorest states are Republican? FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty: As the Republican race for the White House heats up, here's something the GOP can't be too comfortable with: Most of the 10 poorest states in the country are Republican. Mississippi is the poorest... followed by Arkansas, Tennessee, West Virginia, Louisiana, Montana, South Carolina, Kentucky, Alabama and North Carolina. And the list doesn't even include Texas, where Rick Perry is governor and one in five people lives in poverty. In a piece on CNN.com, Roland Martin writes Republicans expect to win all 10 of these states in 2012, although President Obama won North Carolina by a slim margin in 2008 and West Virginia is usually considered a Democratic state. Martin points out that despite the red-leanings in these states, you don't hear so much from Republicans about poverty. In fact the word "poor" has barely come up at the GOP debates thus far. The only exceptions were: – Rick Santorum discussing wel ...
Some conservatives want to delay the whole Obamacare program for a year. They have an ulterior motive. They expect Republicans to win control of the Senate in the midterm elections next year and then take the White House in 2016. That would put them in a position to kill off Obamacare forever — as Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney promised to do if he had won the election. It will be much harder to kill Obamacare if it is already in place. Meanwhile, mainstream Republicans are getting increasingly concerned about facing a backlash at the polls next year. They have good reason to worry. Far from rallying to the anti-Obamacare cause, voters are expressing anger and disgust with Congress. Contempt of Congress happens to be a crime. If that's the case, millions of Americans may be facing arrest any minute now. Because contempt of Congress is exactly what they are expressing.

Becoming Two Countries in 2014 Wednesday, September 25, 2013 at 4:40PM Tom Hayden in Domestic Policy, Politics, Social Movements United by the flag, but divided by its colors. (Photo: Getty 2013)The logic of voter turnout data all but guarantees right-wing Republican congressional victories in 2014 and a sealing of the divide of America into two countries for the foreseeable future. White House operatives privately acknowledge that GOP gerrymandering plus low turnout make 2014 a war to keep the Senate Democratic and show gains while losing the House. There are eight battleground Senate seats where Mitt Romney won the popular vote in 2012 and incumbent Democrats are either retiring or vulnerable to defeat. Even if Hillary Clinton manages to win in 2016, the battle for the House will favor the GOP since the current gerrymandeRed Seats will remain intact until 2020, or even 2022. Assuming continued Democratic control of the White House and Senate in 2014, the opportunity to take back the Roberts Supreme Cour ...
WASHINGTON/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Six months after President Barack Obama eased a strained relationship with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a visit to Israel dubbed "Operation Desert Schmooze," the two leaders now face the biggest test of whether they can work together - and the stakes are higher than ever. A diplomatic charm offensive by new Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has suddenly opened up a gap between the White House and Netanyahu's government. How they respond could have far-reaching implications for their political legacies as well as the future stability of the Middle East. Coming three days after Obama and Rouhani had a historic phone call, which was the highest-level contact between the two countries in three decades, Monday's White House meeting between the U.S. and Israeli leaders is shaping up as perhaps their most consequential encounter. Obama and Netanyahu will try to avoid any repeat of previous clashes as they seek to project unity. But behind closed doors, their difference ...
On this day in the American presidency, Sept. 25: • 1919, President Woodrow Wilson collapsed after a speech in Pueblo, Colo., during a national speaking tour in support of the Treaty of Versailles (vehr-SY'). • 2008, Republican John Mccain and Democrat Barack Obama sat down with President George W. Bush at the White House to discuss a multibillion-dollar Wall Street bailout plan, but the session, which also included top congressional leaders, devolved into what the McCain campaign described afterward as a "contentious shouting match." • 2008, Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin defended her remark that the close proximity of Russia to her home state of Alaska gave her foreign policy experience, explaining in a CBS interview that "we have trade missions back and forth." Palin's remark was famously lampooned by Tina Fey as "and I can see Russia from my house." • 2012, President Barack Obama, speaking to the U.N. General Assembly, pledged U.S. support for Syrians trying to oust President ...
“Liberalism is a mental illness!” To fully grasp the strategies of the conservative movement, it is necessary to understand the delusions that drive them. Mitt Romney lost the 2012 election for a number of reasons. Some are specific to him: the flipflopping, the obvious contempt for the common people, and so on. But other issues still matter for the conservative movement’s prospects for later on. Here are two. The first thing is that the conservative movement’s thuglike political tactics didn’t work. They lied over and over, and Obama and the media let them get away with it for months. Romney’s Medicare lie almost cost Obama Florida. But they went for the lie a couple of times too many, on Benghazi and on the Jeep issue, and they were publicly spanked for it. They tried four hundred million dollars worth of attack ads, and the quest to retake the White House and the Senate fell flat. In fact one of the biggest targets of these ads, Sherrod Brown, still won. The vote suppression efforts backfir ...
ACCORDING to a dull White House statement, US President Barack Obama gave both Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard a buzz overnight. Apparently the President offered his congratulations to Mr Rudd, and thanked Julia Gillard for her "warm friendship". That's all very nice, but it's also boring.

OPINIONJune 26, 2013, 7:26 p.m. ET Karl Rove: More White Votes Alone Won't Save the GOP By Karl Rove CONNECT As Immigration Reform grinds its way through the U.S. Senate, the main focus has rightly been on the legislation's policy consequences. But there are important political implications, especially for the GOP, that are worth examining. Some observers, including Phyllis Schlafly, Pat Buchanan and the Center for Immigration Studies, argue that if Republicans want to win back the White House, they should focus on white voters (who comprised 72% of the electorate in 2012) rather than worrying about Latinos. After all, new Census Bureau estimates are that 100,042,000 whites voted in 2008 but only 98,041,000 did in 2012. Wouldn't it be better to get those two million whites back into the polling booth? This argument is incomplete. If as many white voters turned out in 2012 as in 2008—and if Mitt Romney received the 59% of them that he got last fall—then his vote total would have increased by 1,180,590. ...
I'm truly disappointed in Marco Rubio. Hitching his star to a bad immigration bill may endear him to the moderate wing of the party, you know, the wing that brought us John Mccain and Mitt Romney. Hmmm, could this be our "establishment" 2016 presidential candidate emerging? Let us hope that there are enough Republicans out there that are not willing to sacrifice conservative principles to give Hillery her Rubio "speed bump" to the White House. We need to nominate a real Conservative this time, and Rubio ain't it!
It was a race of certainty on both sides.

On CNN, the former GOP presidential nominee said he wished Hurricane Sandy never happened — because it gave President Obama the chance to look presidential. Of course, there were a lot of other reasons to wish Sandy didn’t happen — including 125 deaths and about $62 billion in damage. But Mitt has his own problems. However, Ann Romney assures us that the couple who thought they would be living in the White House right now are done with grieving their loss. And she’s often been joined in the grieving process by people who burst into tears when they see her. “It just happened yesterday, again,” she said. “It’s happening less and less when people see me and start to cry.

White House aide's email to IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman: “Hey Shulman… What’s up?… Don’t forget BJ (Basketball Jones) wants you to kick up the fees on anyone with Tea Party or Conservative in their names… try to see if you can make them hire expensive tax attorneys too… bog them down with paperwork so they can’t campaign for milk boy (Mitt Romney) or Ru Paul (Ron Paul)… sorry you missed the Easter Egg Hunt… maybe next year… I’d invite you to stay in the Lincoln bedroom but that costs real money… send me a report on how many Tea Party groups quit because of being jerked around…ASAP… Chow!” Basketball Jones is supposedly a nickname for Obama from his college years.

A message for Gun Owners. Click the attached link below, enter zip code to send your senators a letter. Easy! Gun Owners of America You Could Lose all your Guns before 2035 under the Amnesty Bill before the Senate. We’ve written you before about the immigration amnesty bill that will be debated on the Senate floor beginning June 10. We had just been through a hard fight to stop gun bans and registration. And some of you may have even felt the immigration amnesty was not a “gun” issue. But if the amnesty bill is passed, within 20 years, Washington could be as anti-gun as Albany, Hartford, and Sacramento. This is because the bill will create at least 11,500,000 new citizens -- but probably closer to 20,000,000 -- and, if history is any guide, they will vote 71% of the time for far Left Democrats like Barack Obama. Impartial analysts have determined that Florida, Colorado, Nevada, and probably Arizona will never vote for Republicans again. Given this, for the rest of your life, the White House will ...

Monsanto Controls both the White House and the US Congress No Matter Who Wins the Presidential Election Monsanto Benefits. Whoever gets in, Monsanto’s interests will be served. Moreover, Monsanto also controls key appointments to the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) In the 2012 Presidential Election, the American People will have to choose between incumbent President Barack Obama (D) and Mitt Romney (R). With this choice, the American public will determine who sets the tone for national policy and is given power over the executive branch of our government. There are many ways to look at the prospective presidential candidates, but one is to look at their past actions and affiliations in order to predict how they will act in the future; in this article, I will discuss the past actions of both current President Barack Obama and candidate Mitt Romney in relation to the agro-giant Monsanto Corporation. As Obama has already served a term as president, there is l ...

LeBron James is going to get audited by the IRS.” “It’s casual Friday, which means that at the White House, they’re casually going through everybody’s phone calls and records.” On Obama’s dismissal of the IRS commissioner: “Apparently he was fired for acting like Richard Nixon’s IRS commissioner.” “Love him or hate him, you have to admit that President Obama is a new kind of Democrat. He’s embroiled in three scandals and not one of them involves sex!” “This morning he called Mitt Romney and said, ‘Look, if you still want the job …’” “Fox News has changed its slogan from ‘Fair and Balanced’ to ‘See, I told you so!’” “These Wh ...

The Department of Justice seizes the Associated Press telephone records Jay Carney, “Other than press reports, we have no knowledge of any attempt by the Justice Department to seek phone records of the AP.” The IRS targets conservative groups that opposes Obama’s agenda, pro-Israel groups that disagree with Obama’s policies and Mitt Romney donors that wanted to see Obama lose his reelection and Obama claims, ” I first learned about it from the same news reports that I think most people learned about this. I think it was on Friday.” (Note- White House Counsel knew back in April) Four Americans died in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11/12 after they had requested and been denied additional security and the White House, Joe Biden, claimed “We weren’t told they wanted more security. We did not know they wanted more security.” Fast and Furious, a federal operation allowed weapons from the U.S. to pass into the ...
White House press secretary Jay Carney on Tuesday again referred questions about the collection of Associated Press phone records to the Department of Justice, stating that President Barack Obama remained a “strong defender of the First Amendment.” “The president is a strong defender of the first am...
In a cogent analysis in the Washington Examiner, Byron York recently delineated exactly why the mantra that the GOP lost the White House because of its failure among Hispanics is a whopper of a lie.
OMG... if only Mitt Romney was our President we would be on the road to recovery, We would have the information we need on Fast and Furious and Benghazi, Obama Care would have already been repealed and replaced with a sensible health Care bill. There would be a much tougher bill on Immigration Reform with the priority on Border Security. There would be no sequester, and more important we would have our Constitutional rights honored by our President and God would be welcomed back in the White House. We would have a President who would know how to cut down our National debt, and not spend our tax dollars on so many vacations etc. Mitt would have been a hands on the job. Oh if only we had been united and voted for Mitt Romney, what a wonderful time that would be. There is no doubt that Romney would have been a better President than Obama.
San Diego, March 4 (UPI) -- Mitt Romney says it "kills" him not to be U.S. president, and his wife, Ann, says she has cried over the loss and blames the news media at least in part for it. "I look at what's happening right now, I wish I were there," Romney told "Fox News Sunday" in a wide-ranging interview at his San Diego beach house, his first on television since he lost November's Presidential Election. "It kills me not to be there, not to be in the White House doing what needs to be done," the Former Massachusetts Governor said. "I have to tell you, the hardest thing about losing is watching this critical moment, this golden moment, just slip away with politics," he said. He accused President Barack Obama of using automatic federal spending cuts known as the sequester to score political points. "No one can think that that's been a success for the president," Romney said. "He didn't think the sequester would happen. It is happening. To date, what we've seen is the president out campaigning to the Ameri ...
The sequester is only four days old and it has already done untold damage — not to teachers, air traffic controllers, or the military, mind you, but to President Obama’s credibility. Obama has been caught in one misstatement after another about the sequester — from lying to Americans about its origins to exaggerating its impact. Obama is fast becoming the president who cried “Sequester!” And the price he pays for his exaggerations will be lasting. The first untruth came on October 22, 2012, during Obama’s final debate with Mitt Romney, when Obama declared, “The sequester is not something that I’ve proposed. It is something that Congress has proposed.” When everyone from Bob Woodward to Senate Budget Committee Chairman Max Baucus came out and said it was indeed the president’s idea, White House spokesman Jay Carney was finally forced to admit that “the sequester was one of the ideas put forward, yes, by the president’s team.” Then President Obama began issuing apocalyptic warnings ...

Mitt Romney made an appearance this weekend on Fox News Sunday in what some could call the Apology Tour, or at least the Explanation Tour. This is where the failed politician seeks to explain to anyone listening why he isn't in the White House, and the other guy is. Not only did Romney not lead
Let's face it - one of the main reasons Mitt Romney lost was the thought of Queen Ann in the White House.
Mitt Romney grants his first interview since the election, and Speaker John A. Boehner and White House adviser Gene Sperling join the political shows to talk about sequestration.
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who set off political speculation by giving some great fundraising speeches for Mitt Romney last year, doesn't appear to be considering a run for the White House. The Alabama native says she'll continue being a public voice, but noted how much she loathes…
ut the bill doesn't stop there. I mean, when you have the entirety of Congress with the exception of Ron Paul agreeing on something, why not swing for the fences? The bill also says it could be a federal crime to protest near an event of, quote, "national significance." Well, that's not vague at all. So you could be convicted of a federal crime and locked away for a year or more for the following things: 1) Marching outside the Democratic or Republican National Conventions 2) Yelling "C**k-face corporate *** outside a barber shop where Mitt Romney is getting his ear hair trimmed. 3) Marching in front of the entrance of the New York Stock Exchange 4) Sprinkling magic homosexual glitter on Rick Santorum, or even anyone near Rick Santorum, or even just making fun of his stupid sweater vest! 5) Going to the gates of the White House and demanding the President read the Constitution. ...You know, if he gets a chance.
In 2012, we all were given the opportunity to cast a ballot and say who we wanted in the White House whether it was the return of President Barack Obama or if we wanted Mitt Romney to become the 45th President of the United States. On that Tuesday in November, President Obama was reelected. There was something different about this campaign season. It was one that we hadn’t seen before. Not that the first African American President was seeking reelection, not that America had nominated it’s first Mormon candidate for President. It was the most expensive election in the country’s history.      Between each campaign, the Republican and Democratic National Committee and all the Super PACs, just over $2 billion had been spent. Imagine what you could do with $2 billion. How did it get this way? Why does it seem like the cost of an election goes up as if it’s being sold to the highest bidder? The Citizens United ruling by the Supreme Court in January of 2010 may have opened the flood gates some politi ...
Here's my daily rant. Jack Lew, soon to become the Secretary of the Treasury, God help us, was the White House advisor who came up with sequestration according to respected columnist Bob Woodward. (Most of us already knew this but it's nice to see it confirmed) Jack also by the way was one of those greedy, unpatriotic citizens who had offshore accounts in the Caymans. They totaled more than the accounts held by Mitt Romney. How loud can I say HYPOCRITE ! Please God just let me see the day this president is out of office.
Obama advances globalist '2-ocean' plan Grandiose expansion of 'North American Union' pushed by Bush New YorkPresident Obama has revived George W. Bush's Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America effort with a grandiose trade plan that transcends the continent to encompass both the Atlantic and Pacific spheres. In his State of the Union address Feb. 12, Obama announced a two-ocean, globalist free-trade agenda. Despite having demonized Republican challenger Mitt Romney as a "jobs outsourcer," Obama in his SOTU address did not hesitate to sell the new globalist alliances to Congress and the American People as "partnerships" that would expand U.S. exports. It's the same premise all previous administrations have used to sell free-trade agreements such as NAFTA. Follow this link to help fight Obama's "Partnership" and power grab. For the first time, a decision by the U.S. Trade Representative within the White House to expand negotiations to create a Free Trade zone with Pacific Rim countries wa ...
We'll have an exclusive sitdown with Stuart Stevens, Mitt Romney's top strategist, who has plenty to say about the media.

On this day in the American presidency, Feb. 22: • 1909, the Great White Fleet, a naval task force sent on a round-the-world voyage by President Theodore Roosevelt, returned after more than a year at sea. • 1924, President Calvin Coolidge delivered the first radio broadcast from the White House as he addressed the country over 42 stations. • 1935, It became illegal for airplanes to fly over the White House. • 2012, Primed for a fight, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum swapped accusations about health care, spending earmarks and federal bailouts in the 20th debate of the roller-coaster race for the Republican presidential nomination, held in Mesa, Ariz.
Former House Speaker and Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said the current GOP would be “incapable of competing” against Hillary Clinton should she run in 2016. Gingrich on NBC’s “Meet the Press” called Clinton a “very formidable” person who is married to “the most popular Democrat in the country.” “If [the Republicans'] competitor in ’16 is going to be Hillary Clinton, supported by Bill Clinton and presumably, a still relatively popular President Barack Obama, trying to win that will be truly the Super Bowl. And the Republican Party today is incapable of competing at that level,” Gingrich said. Gingrich also said the reason Republicans lost the White House last month was “much more than Mitt Romney.” “We didn’t blow it because of Mitt Romney, we blew it because of a party which has refused to engage the reality of American life and refused to think through what the average American needs for a better future,” he said.
I had stepped away from my computer, was about to do something else when visions of Nate Silver's comments about the electability of Marco Rubio being somewhere in the range of Mitt Romney danced through my mind and I started laughing at the fact that the White House's back up plan for Immigration Reform was leaked (gosh darn somebody is working in our govt, has a plan already) and how Rubio almost lost his tea bagging mind when he heard that (he wanting to be the glory man and all) but also remembering that whatever plan he was in charge of creating would probably be screwed up because this man voted against the violence against women act, doesn't believe our actions have any thing to do w/climate change, thinks the earth is about 7000 years old and still, despite all of that idiocy has the nerve to think the majority of us would support him in a run for the Executive Office, a 12th century mentality thinking he is fit to lead the most technologically advanced nation on earthin the 21st century: I tell y ...

I just don't understand... Obama's team, the Democrats and the liberal media excoriated Mitt Romney for Cayman Island accounts... which he declared and paid 100% of the required income tax, but... When it is one of Obama's guys.. it's no big deal... such hypocritical jack *** !! Senate Republicans may question Jack Lew, the former Budget director whom President Barack Obama has nominated to be his next Treasury secretary, about investments he made in a Cayman Islands fund during his Senate confirmation hearing on Wednesday. The fund in question is located in the infamous "Ugland House," which Obama called out for hosting numerous tax scams and havens. Though the White House has said the investments have been previously disclosed, Democrats on the Senate Finance Committee have said Republicans vetting Lew have noted "there are concerns" with Lew's Cayman Islands investments. The White House continues to insist that Lew "paid all of his taxes and reported all of the income, gains and losses from the inves . ...
Republicans are cooling toward tea-party activists White House It was predicted. Many times. Scott Powers writes (past seven months have not been kind to the movement that once was seen as a fresh base of ideas and volunteers for Republicans. It was all but shunned at August’s Republican National Convention — and by Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. And it’s been increasingly marginalized by key Republicans since the Nov. 6 general election returned President Barack Obama to the White House and brought down numerous tea-party-backed congressional candidates, such as U.S. Rep. Allen West of Plantation and, locally, Todd Long. The cruelest blow may have come from Gov. Rick Scott, who in 2011 unveiled a budget featuring nearly $4 billion in cuts — $1.5 billion to education alone — to fervent tea-party applause in Eustis and The Villages. This year, Scott is asking for a $74.2 billion budget — a 6 percent increase — that includes raises for teachers, bonuses for state employees and in ...

(CNN) -- A political analyst who predicted that GOP nominee Mitt Romney would win the White House in November says Fox News may have ousted him from their payroll to make him a "poster child." Fox did not renew its contract with *** Morris, he said on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight" on Wednesday.
he Root) -- The Republican Party learned one crucial lesson from Mitt Romney's defeat: The only way it can win the White House is to rig the election. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus has publicly endorsed a plan for GOP-controlled legislatures in key battleground states like Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida to alter the way Electoral College votes are allocated. Instead of electoral votes being awarded to the candidate who wins a popular majority, Republicans intend to assign votes by Congressional District -- essentially diluting the ballots of African Americans, Hispanics and Asians in metropolitan areas -- by giving more leverage to rural counties that are less populated and overwhelmingly white. This strategy is a direct consequence of the 2010 midterm elections, to which President Obama famously referred as a "shellacking." As the Tea Party descended on Washington -- shifting the GOP's House Caucus to the far right -- Republican-dominated legislatures at the state level ...
This is Wayne Reses reporting from the 2013 annual American Heritage Society (While the retreat is not open to the public, I was granted unprecedented access. As a devotee of both Grover Norquist (and the rest of the Republican leadership, and as one who has his capital invested in America's second to none capital markets, I was privileged to hear Norquist, Malkin, Limbaugh, Beck, Henry Paulson, Hank Greenberg, Tim Geithner, Rahm Emanuel, Gen.

DID YOU KNOW? Mitt Romney was the first losing presidential candidate not to attend the inauguration since Michael Dukakis in 1989. Dukakis reportedly opted to remain in Massachusetts, watching the day's events on television while eating a tuna sandwich. He did, however, send a telegram to the White House, offering incoming President George H.W. Bush his congratulations.
GrumpyOne (This exactly how I feel. RLS) · The Dumbing Down of America may now be complete. With the re-election of the inexperienced community organizer instead of the seasoned well qualified business executive, it is abundantly clear that people have become addicted to free stuff in lieu of earning earning their living through honest work. Pushed aside are nagging issues such as the terrorist attack in Libya and the human cost involved with Fast and Furious. Accountability in this administration is virtually nonexistent. Never in my lifetime, (I've been hanging around for 70 years), did either political party present two more qualified candidates than Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Both were squeaky clean, very knowledgeable in their field and had a solid record of achievement. Yet, the public chose to retain the worst team ever even eclipsing Jimmy Carter for incompetence. At least Carter was somewhat honest while the current occupant of the White House has been a consistent liar that has fostered ...
With hundreds of thousands of Democrats traveling to nation's capital for President Barack Obama's inauguration activities, Republicans and supporters of last fall's GOP presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, are leaving town, or staying put and trying to avoid the crowds. After failing to recapture the White House for a second straight Presidential Election, many are not exactly in a partying mood. "It's a good time to lay low," said John Feehery, the president of Quinn Gillespie Communications and a former top congressional aide. As Democrats prepare to mark Obama's second inauguration on Monday by bundling up along the parade route or dressing up for balls, Republicans are spending the long Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend with quick vacation getaways, quiet time at home or trips to the movie theater. Few plan any "mourning parties" or "bawls" that have been the staples of past inaugural festivities for the party out of power. But invitations to parties tend to be scarce if your candidate lost, and ...
Last year around June and twice after that I wrote to Bret Baier the trashing of Mitt Romney was ill thought and ill conceived. Having Bill Kristol sitting there in his biggest grown up voice saying that Romney was stupid and other so called Conservatives bashing Romney. While these same guys like Steve Hays saying "well in defense of the President", Neil Cavuto in tears saying what a great father BO was on Father's Day holiday. I told them that after Romney went down they would come after FOX. I was told that would never happen. XM Satellite Radio has removed Fox News talk from their lineup and are getting ready to remove Fox News audio in August. Sirius has alerted Fox News talk radio they will not renew them at the end of February. In September Fox News Audio has been alerted that Sirius/SM will be finished with FOX totally. They will continue CNN, MSNBC and CURRENT as well as the liberal talk channel and the White House talk radio channel. COMCAST has alerted Fox News to show existence results. ...
Obama's news conference today was pathetic in my opinion you all will believe this according to the Drudge Report the White House has 19 Executive Orders ready on guns for all of you that voted for Obama if you don't believe me go on the Drudge Report it's on the upper left hand corner you all read it and the why Obama news conference. was today.

Cute Story-Had Sunday morning news on- Story on about how White House has as a website where citizens can propose ideas and if there are 25,000 votes- The White House will respond. Leading the vote, was a proposal by Star Wars fans, for the government to build a Dath Star Ship. Sam comes running to us ( and then Michael) "Oh no, President Obama says no more Death Star Ships". After Sam put the Lego Millenium Falcon together, he is asking for the Lego Death Star for next Chrismas (which is a cool 400 dollars). Mom and Dad are very happy with the President's "decision". Sam is wondering what Mitt Romney would say about this matter. Then He said, President Obama did not say anything abot the At-At walker"! Yikes!

Barack Obama is the first president in more than five decades to win at least 51 percent of the national popular vote twice, according to a revised vote count in New York eight weeks after the Nov. 6 election. State election officials submitted a final tally on Dec. 31 that added about 400,000 votes, most of them from provisional ballots in the Democratic stronghold of New York City that were counted late in part because of complications caused by Hurricane Sandy. The president nationally won 65.9 million votes — or 51.1 percent — against Republican challenger Mitt Romney, who took 60.9 million votes and 47.2 percent of the total cast, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Obama is the first president to achieve the 51 percent mark in two elections since Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower, who did it in 1952 and 1956, and the first Democrat to do so since Franklin D. Roosevelt, who won four consecutive White House races. Roosevelt received 53.4 percent of the vote — his lowest — in his last race i ...
Today, the Main Press is reporting that former Pres George Bush Sr is in the ICU intensive care at the Houston Hospital that he checked in to over a month ago with bronchitis. According to my sources the Illuminati has 3 factions and Bush Sr and Jay Rockefeller did all they could to get their puppet Mitt Romney in to the White House. Was Bush Sr involved in the murder of JFK? A few of my sources claim that he was. Prescott Bush funded Hitler. Baby Bush had inside knowledge of the Attack on the World Trade Center, before it occurred. Who will replace Bush Sr as the leader of his Cabal? Maybe the End of the World is arriving for some people. The Charter for the Federal Reserve came to an end last week. This financial fact is the truth behind the Fiscal Cliff campaign. We will continue to observe and report. Happy New Year...
Three months ago today, President Obama woke up to the news that US Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans had been murdered during a terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi. The president had been informed that an active attack was underway the night before -- but how actively he followed the developing raid, and what (if any) orders he issued, remains a mystery. On September 12, the president skipped his daily intelligence briefing and flew to Las Vegas for a campaign rally. This much we know. The Obama campaign eventually accused Republicans of "politicizing" the massacre by asking questions about it, asserting that the "entire reason" it was a major national story was due to rank exploitation of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Even with the president's re-election safely tucked away, the White House has continued to defend its UN Ambassador (and possible Secretary of State in waiting) against charges that she dissemminated false information to mislead the public about the true nature ...

ADVICE FOR A RUNNER-UP We really don’t know what President Obama and Mitt Romney talked about the other day when the defeated Republican came to lunch at the White House. Perhaps Obama encouraged Romney to write a book—as President Kennedy suggested to Richard Nixon soon after the 1960 election: “Every public man should write a book at some time in his life, both for the mental discipline and because it tends to elevate him in popular esteem to the respect status of an ‘intellectual.’” Mitt's "Six Crises" would be a natural topic.
Nov. 30: The Grio’s Perry Bacon and The Hill’s Karen Finney dig into a new report on internal polling that convinced Mitt Romney and others that he would win the White House – and why it seems Republicans still pressing the Paul Ryan budget may be consulting those same polls.
Talk Back: What should come of the Obama-Romney luncheon? Awkward! President Obama. Mitt Romney. A luncheon of rivals...Who can forget the two on the debate stage -- prowling, pointing -- the bitter rivalry spawning, tortured catch-phrases: "Romnesia." "Romney-hood." "Obama-loney." Now the man who accused the other man of "giving away free stuff" may just dine on Obama-loney. Jimmy Kimmel said: "For the last eight months, Mitt Romney has been saying nobody should get a free lunch. Now, he's going to the White House to have a free lunch." We laugh. But what if Mr. Obama asked Mr. Romney to play an important role going forward? Even the president has acknowledged Romney's skill in making things -- like the Olympics -- run better. But the track record for post-election pow-wows is not good. After the 2008 election, John Mccain and Obama met and vowed to work together on economic issues. Look at them now: not exactly best buds. Just say the word Benghazi and -- ouch! Still, it could be a win-win for both me . ...

I Long For the Return of “West Wing” I wish “West Wing” would return. While yes I do wish that Jed Bartlet, Charlie, Toby, Josh & Donna, Sam and C.J. would return on screen as the characters running the White House. I long more for the spirit of democracy seen every week as people mostly did their best to serve their country. Winning some battles and losing others but never letting animosity overcome accomplishment and always putting the public ahead of the Party. It’s amazing how prescient the writers were in addressing not only the issues that face every administration but in foreseeing those that didn’t exist in their time but we face head on today. Mitt Romney wasn’t the first politician to attack Big Bird and the Muppets, “West Wing” dealt with the issue in 1 Hour flat. If Mitt had watched he might have known better? It was “West Wing” that taught me about secret holds, explained the filibuster, Posse Comitatus, showed us debates as we wish they were and gave me context for the ...
Washington, D.C. — Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush met Monday with a group of his former staffers at the J. W. Marriott hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue, just steps from the White House. Bush, a potential 2016 presidential contender, spent an hour in the hotel’s Cannon room, reminiscing and entertaining questions about his political future. In an interview with NRO, Bush did not rule out a presidential run. “I am here to catch up with folks and promote education reform,” he said, smiling. When asked again whether he will issue a Sherman-type statement about his future, Bush remained coy. “We have an alumni group that I like keeping in touch with,” he said. “I’m here to focus on educational reform, and that’s what I’m going to tell people.” Neil Newhouse, Mitt Romney’s campaign pollster, was at the meeting, as were several veteran Florida operatives. On Tuesday, Bush will host a national summit on education reform. Education secretary Arne Duncan, Former Secretary of state Condoleezza ...
Editor's note: David Frum, a CNN contributor, is a contributing editor at Newsweek and The Daily Beast. He is the author of eight books, including a new novel "Patriots" and his post-election e-book, "Why Romney Lost." Frum was a special assistant to President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2002. (CNN) -- Here's the next thing the Republican Party needs to rethink. What does it say if and when the United States returns to prosperity? For five years, U.S. politics have been shaped by economic hardship. In 2008 and 2010, voters rejected the party in power, booting Republicans out of the White House, and then sweeping Democrats out of Congress. Mitt Romney campaigned in 2012 on the slogan, "Obama isn't working." President Obama responded by attacking Romney as Out Of Touch, assuming (probably correctly) that he could not win by running on his record. But the indicators are suggesting that by 2013 and 2014, the Obama record will begin to look a lot better, assuming, that is, that the two parties in Washington do ...
The next big fix after the voting mess, should be the money spent on Presidential Elections. President Obama’s campaign and his supporters have spent $931 million, while those supporting Republican challenger Mitt Romney have spent more than $1 billion, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. I have just read that a big chunk of the money came from uber-wealthy, according to election experts. Some 149 super-rich donors gave $500,000 or more, contributing $290 million of the funds raised. Repealing the Citizens United decision should be a priority considering that in the Obama's second term, several conservative U.S. Supreme Court Justices could retire. It will be interesting to watch if striking the Citizens United decision will succeed and if this White House and the democratic operatives will pursue this cause. Spending close to $6 billion (according to some estimates) on the elections is OBSCENE!
New York –- MSNBC President Phil Griffin labels his network's sensibility as progressive, but the cable news channel could also be described these days as simply pro-Obama. In the final week of the 2012 election, MSNBC ran no negative stories about President Barack Obama and no positive stories about Republican nominee Mitt Romney, according to a study released Monday by the Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism. MSNBC's afternoon and primetime hosts kept their sights on Romney and the Republicans during the election cycle, while spending considerably less time holding Obama accountable on issues like civilian casualties from drone strikes, use of executive power and the Afghanistan conflict, the nation's longest-ever war, which escalated under the current White House. Instead, the network's top partisan hosts –- with the exception of former Republican Rep. Joe Scarborough –- seemed to circle the wagons around the Democratic president during his reelection bid.

Punch You are not a country, Nigeria (1) November 19, 2012 by Tayo Oke Three weeks before the 2012 US Presidential Election, Mitt Romney and his camp had assumed victory; they had started measuring the drapes in the White House, and also carving up positions in an effort to reshape the US administration to fit a different approach to governance they were about to unveil. Indeed, campaign organisers had set up a giant outdoor tent for what they believed would be a victory speech to be given by ‘President-elect’ Romney. They were so convinced of their impending victory that key Romney strategists had even started contemplating a plan for his re-election come 2016. So, the voters’ verdict, giving President Barack Obama a second term came like a jolt to the Grand Old Party aka, Republican Party, on November 6. In case anyone is wondering at this juncture what Nigeria has got to do with this, I say hold your peace and trundle along with me. So, as I was saying, the inquest into Romney’s defeat has s .. ...
People are misinterpreting Bobby Jindal's comments about the Republican Party. He's not talking about real or substantive changes but cosmetic and pr changes. He's telling Republicans that he will stick to the script and not make the stupid comments that Todd Akin, Richard Mourdock and Mitt Romney made. Jindal is a master of spin, damage control and hiding the truth. He is positioning himself to be the GOP's savior from the multi-cultural and multi-ethnic coalition the Democratic Party has put together over the last 20 years. Jindal however, is still the tool of the rich and the corporate elite and no populist. His actions as Governor and his campaign finance reports tell the real story. Jindal is in a race against time however; he needs to win the White House in 2016 before the bottom falls out in Louisiana and he is exposed as a colossal failure.
I think this world is coming to an end -- read Newt Gingrich's liberal comments below -- i think Newt is converting to a Liberal Democrat: Gingrich on Romney’s ‘gifts’ comments: ‘It’s nuts’ By Dylan Stableford, Yahoo! News | The Ticket – 5 hrs ago Like several other prominent Republicans, Newt Gingrich slammed Mitt Romney's assertion in a conference call with donors last week that he lost the 2012 Presidential Election because of "gifts" President Barack Obama gave to blacks, Hispanics and younger voters during his first term in the White House. "It's nuts," Gingrich told guest host Martha Raddatz on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday. "First of all, it's insulting. This would be like Wal-Mart having a bad week and going, 'The customers have really been unruly.' I mean, the job of a political leader in part is to understand the people. If we can't offer a better future that is believable to more people, we're not going to win." [Related: Bobby Jindal calls Romney's 'gifts' comments 'absolutely wron ...
Things are looking hopeful to me. From Politico: MORNING MINDMELD : On paper, the election was status quo: President Obama reelected, Dems running the Senate, Republicans running the House. In reality, the results touched off massive momentum shifts and power grabs, with liberals feeling even more empowered than after '08, and younger Republicans rushing to fill the vacuum at the top of a chastened party. Washington was frozen. Now, it's molten. Mitt Romney accelerated the GOP's pivot with his widely panned remarks blaming his thumping on "gifts" Obama had given different minority constituencies. Republican governors meeting out in Las Vegas lit him up, and are invoking his comments as the antithesis of the more open party they are sketching - including more flexibility in tax negotiations with the White House., and new calls for a legal path to citizenship for some illegal immigrants.
Even with a lot of $$$ provided by his buddies Mitt Romney was unable to buy the White House. Shared by John Spencer.
“You can’t expect to be a leader of all the people and be divisive,” New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said Friday on MSNBC, adding: “Someone asked me, ‘Why did Mitt Romney lose?’ And I said, ‘Because he got less votes than Barack Obama, that’s why.’” It’s a remarkable fall from grace for Romney, who just 10 days ago held the chance of a Republican return to power at the White House.
We first reported on this when the count was at 20. But now, petitions signed by hundreds of thousands are seeking permission for their states to peacefully secede from the union have now been filed for all 50 states on the White House website. The secession petition push began last week on the site's We The People section. As of Wednesday afternoon, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Texas, all states that voted for former Gov. Mitt Romney, as well as Florida each had accumulated more than 25,000 signatures, the threshold needed to trigger an official response from the Obama Administration. Collectively, the secession petitions now have more than 700,000 digital signatures. Texas is in the lead with more than 99,000, but Gov. Rick Perry said on Tuesday that he does not support secession. What are your thoughts?
So this FREE STUFF, Mitt Romney says I will be receiving do I get it from Carl Rove. Its sad to think the money used by BOTH PARTIES for campaigning could have done A LOT for EDUCATION, and SO much more than to see whose puppett gets to sleep in the White House for 4yrs. Don't know whats worse polotics or being a Philly Sports Fan
White House petitioners threaten secession, the Petraeus scandal widens with a second implicated general, and Jason Sudeikis channels Joe Biden and Mitt Romney.
What made Obama triumph The citizen Wednesday, 14 November 2012 10:43 By Patty Magubira The Political Platform Reporter Dar es Salaam. Opinion polls and predictions had until the eleventh hour hinted that there was a neck and neck horse race to the White House last week. One wonders what exactly led Barack Obama, the first black man to lead the US, to suddenly defeat Mitt Romney by such a wide margin. The multimillionaire suffered defeat even in his own New Hampshire state and Wisconsin state belonging to his running mate, Paul Ryan. Record level turnout in many states reflected the strength of feeling which the long election campaign had aroused, as people were still waiting to vote after polls had officially closed. Most of the Swing States were too close to call apparently as a result of the tedious and polarizing campaign. “We’re not as divided as our politics suggests. We’re not as cynical as the pundits believe…,” Obama told his supporters after he was assured of victory. The results had s ...
Screaming "Mitt Romney don't pay no tax." at the White House on Election Night >
It's astonishing how many "Americans" appear to believe that there's no such thing as VOTE FRAUD or that outcomes can AND ARE manipulated, or simply don't care. Fraud has become a way of life, just ask Lance Armstrong, Tiger Woods, Barry Bonds, or any politician for that matter. The phony currently residing in the White House is there because of fraud, but denial is a very powerful drug and quite obviously those Democrats who "voted" for Obama don't care HOW they "win" as much as "winning" by any means necessary. But remember, they're completely unlike Republicans. Nov 12 09:04 In 59 Philadelphia voting divisions, Mitt Romney got zero votes Tags: VOTE FRAUD It's one thing for a Democratic presidential candidate to dominate a Democratic city like Philadelphia, but check out this head-spinning figure: In 59 voting divisions in the city, Mitt Romney received not one vote. Zero. Zilch. Highly unlikely, statistically and probability wise.
it just would have been white maie land owners--Romney would have gotten 80% of the vote::: IT makes sense that Mitt Romney and his advisers are still gobsmacked by the fact that they’re not commandeering the West Wing. (Though, as “The Daily Show” correspondent John Oliver jested, the White House might have been one of the smaller houses Romney ever lived in.) Team Romney has every reason to be shellshocked. Its candidate, after all, resoundingly won the election of the country he was wooing. Mitt Romney is the president of white male America. Maybe the group can retreat to a man cave in a Whiter House, with mahogany paneling, brown leather Chesterfields, a moose head over the fireplace, an elevator for the presidential limo, and one of those men’s club signs on the phone that reads: “Telephone Tips: ‘Just Left,’ 25 cents; ‘On His Way,’ 50 cents; ‘Not here,’ $1; ‘Who?’ $5.” In its delusional death spiral, the white male patriarchy was so hard core, so redolent of country clubs ...
An open letter to the Republican National Committee Chairman: November 12, 2012 Dear Mr. Chairman: I have to ask why Mitt Romney conceded so quickly in the face of the mounting evidence of voter fraud. There is a prevailing opinion among many that some sort of deal was struck between Obama, the Republican Party, Mitt Romney, and the Washington DC Establishment. I intend to find out. Likewise, I would expect and demand that you do the same. If a recount is needed, then do it! There is much more at stake in this than the simple matter of whom controls the White House. There are the volumes of unchecked Executive Orders emanating from the White House, the disregard for our Constitution in submitting to a foreign entity (the UN), the attempts at eliminating our Second Amendment, the curtailing of our First Amendment, and the numerous scandalous behaviors by this rogue regime, and by a President who cannot even prove beyond a doubt his "actual place of birth" and "questionable Parentage!" I would likewis ...
Obama elected to White House for second term not as a popular candidate but because people distrust Romney more than him US President Barack Obama has been re-elected for another fours years after beating Republican rival Mitt Romney in what many thought would be a close race for the White House but which turned out to be an easy win for the incumbent president in the end because of Electoral College votes. Obama had a natural advantage as incumbent president and was ahead of Romney in the polls in the initial stages of the election campaign. But Romney began to catch up because of his excellent performance in the first presidential debate. Though Obama performed much better in the other two debates, he couldn't take a comfortable lead in the opinion polls. Obama's re-election, however, was in line with the majority of American People's expectation. Most observers believed the US economy would be the most dominant subject in the election. It was. But the blame for the economic mess that the US finds itsel ...
Paul Ryan said on Wednesday that he plans to return to the House of Representatives as chairman of the Budget Committee, after he and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney fell short in their White House bid. Ryan, Romney’s pick for Vice President, also was up for re-election in Wisconsin’s fi...
Election postmortem - There were so many great lines from this year's primary and general election campaigns, but I think this one by, of all people, Jon Huntsman, was one of the best: "Mitt Romney doesn't belong in the White House. He belongs in the Waffle House." I think that's in the same league as Ted Kennedy’s 1994 consummate description of Willard: “He’s not pro-choice; he’s multiple choice.”
I love it when folks talk about TRADITONAL AMERICA . There would be no Tuskegee Airmen, no Colin Powells or Tammy Duckworths, no RG3, no 20 women in the Senate, no Hilary Clinton or Shirley Chisolms, no Black folks in the White House except houskeepers and cooks, no music except for country westen or opera, no traffic signal light, no plasma, only white folk would be doctors, lawyers, police, soldiers , fire fighters, professors, sports would all be white no Tiger Woods or Serena Willams Tony Gonzales, no Rock and Roll, no Soleadad O'Brian, no Marco Rubio, no Mitt Romney( Mormons were vilified for their religious beliefs) no Social Security, no GI Bill, no Medicare, no in vitro fertalization, no Clean Air or water act, no safety rules or regulations,no Middle Class , no Unions, no FBI or CIA no space program( people were also afraid of science, no leaps or new medical discoveries or the medicines to cure disease , no major historical or scientific discoveries, women would be barefoot and pregnant sec ...
(New York Magazine) " . . .Mitt Romney is already slithering into the mists of history, or at least La Jolla, gone and soon to be forgotten. A weightless figure unloved and distrusted by even his own supporters, he was always destined, win or lose, to be a transitory front man for a radical-right GOP intent on barreling full-speed down the Randian path laid out by its true 2012 standard-bearer, Paul Ryan. But as was said of another unsuccessful salesman who worked the New England territory, attention must be paid to Mitt as the door slams behind him in the aftermath of Barack Obama’s brilliant victory. Though Romney leaves no political heirs in his own party or elsewhere, he does leave a cultural legacy of sorts. He raised Truthiness to a level of chutzpah beyond Stephen Colbert’s fertile imagination, and on the grandest scale. That a presidential hopeful so cavalierly mendacious could get so close to the White House, winning some 48 percent of the popular vote, is no small accomplishment. The America ...

Boss of the world By Tyrone Velez Fil-Choy Thursday, November 8, 2012 IT'S Barack Obama again as he wins another four years for the United States presidency. This election has been a tight one between the incumbent Obama of the Democrats and Republican candidate Mitt Romney. And as tight as it gets, it is also tightly watched by the world, which shows how its mass media holds the world to its attention by a click of the Internet and cable TV. Now that is settled, Obama is assured the next four years as boss of the White House and boss of the world. That means the US is boss in the military-industry, mining and oil companies, and monopoly banks all over the globe. Our country especially Mindanao has been the US favored spot in recent years. After W. Bush declared the Philippines as the ‘Second Front’ of its war on terror, US troops and materiel arrived in Mindanao ten years ago with the VFA, and never left. First, they trained the AFP, next they killed and arrested Muslim civilians, and later killed ac ...
President Obama’s post-election offer to sit down with vanquished GOP rival Mitt Romney has spurred talk of a possible White House role for Romney, a move that could help calm jitters on Wall Street and warm the partisan chill on Capitol Hill. Romney is still licking his wounds from the devastating.
Governor Romney is a good person, a great business leader. But, alas, he is also a moderate Republican. As were Herbert Hoover, Alf Landon, Wendell Willkie, Thomas E. Dewey, Gerald R. Ford, George H.W. Bush, Bob Dole and John Mccain. Making Mitt Romney a historical asterisk as the tenth moderate GOP nominee (Dewey was nominated twice) to lose the White House. The exceptions to the rule are Dwight Eisenhower, who won not because he was a moderate but because he was the general-hero of World War II. Richard Nixon campaigned as the moderate he was in 1960 and lost. By 1968 he had won the nomination of a party that had shifted back to its conservative roots and he campaigned accordingly -- as he did in 1972. He won narrowly the second time, by a landslide the third. George H.W. Bush ran as the heir to Reagan in 1988 and won. Governing as a moderate he lost -- and lost badly in his 1992 re-election effort. George W. Bush ran as a "compassionate conservative" -- which is to say a moderate -- in 2000 and 2004 an ...
Guess the White House isn't for Sale! Casino mogul Sheldon Adelson gambled more than $54 million on Tuesday's elections. And he lost. The quixotic chairman of the Las Vegas Sands gaming company rose to the top of campaign giving in 2012, gaining notoriety for almost single-handedly staking the campaign of Republican primary contender Newt Gingrich and then continuing to make audacious contributions once Gingrich dropped out – with millions more going to GOP nominee Mitt Romney and two superPACs supporting his bid.
Romney profile Mr Romney, a former one-term governor of Massachusetts, brought to the race wealth, business experience, a national profile and a broad network of fundraisers and supporters left over from his failed 2008 White House bid. With his square jaw, gleaming eyes and immobile hair greying at the temples, he could be a presidential candidate straight from central casting. He has been married to his high-school sweetheart, Ann Romney, since March 1969. Mr Romney lost the party's 2008 nomination race to Arizona Senator John Mccain but took only a brief break from the campaign trail. Almost as soon as Barack Obama was in the White House, Mr Romney began building support for the 2012 contest. He hoped that his background in business would help him convince voters that he, not President Obama, was the man to manage America's halting economic recovery. To win the Republican Party nomination, Mitt Romney had to convince primary voters of the authenticity and depth of his conservative principles, and to ov ...
First, Oklahoma's Republican lawmakers were hoping the U.S. Supreme Court would throw out the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. When that didn't happen, they relied on a pledge by GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney to kill it as soon as he got to the White House.
1. There will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reform entitlements the next time a Republican wins the White House. But it has to be the right kind of reform, not means-testing, price controls, and other gimmicks designed to somehow prop up the current programs. Romney did select Paul Ryan as his running mate, so it’s possible he would have pushed for structural reforms. But I’m guessing that the guy who adopted Obamacare on the state level ultimately would have botched this issue. This means good reforms are still possible, perhaps in as little as four years. 2. One of the most worrisome things about Mitt Romney is that he repeatedly refused to rule out a value-added tax when asked by the editors of the Wall Street Journal. I don’t trust politicians when they say they’ll do the right thing. So when they refuse to even give rhetorical assurances, alarm bells definitely start ringing. My nightmare scenario is that Romney would have been elected, made some half-hearted attempt to restrain spen ...
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie -- Mitt Romney's surrogate-turned-President Obama fan -- bristled today at suggestions that his embrace of the Democratic incumbent cost Republicans the White House.
President Barack Obama handily defeated Gov. Mitt Romney and won himself a second term on Tuesday after a bitter and historically expensive race that was primarily fought in just a handful of battleground states. Obama beat Romney after nabbing almost every one of the 12 crucial battleground states. The Romney campaign's last-ditch attempt to put blue-leaning Midwestern Swing States in play failed as Obama's Midwestern firewall sent the president back to the White House for four more years. Obama picked up the Swing States of New Hampshire, Michigan, New Mexico, Iowa, Virginia, Wisconsin, Colorado, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Minnesota and Ohio. Of the Swing States, Romney picked up only North Carolina. Florida is still too close to call, but even if Romney wins the state, Obama still beat him in the Electoral College vote. The popular vote will most likely be narrower than the president's decisive Electoral College victory. In a sweeping victory speech early Wednesday morning, Obama thanked every American who ...
Breaking news: According to a reliable source Barack Obama will do the following in his first days of his second term: 1. Deny unemployment benefits for Mitt Romney 2. Mandate that Fox News Network show reruns of Sesame St during primetime 3. Replace Rush Limbaugh with Big Bird to host political talk shows. 4. Approve funding for weekly Wobble lessons for Repulicans. 5. Cut 5 billion dollars in programs designed to study how Donald Trumps hair stays on his head 6. Include amendment to Obamacare that would allow plastic surgery to get Boehner to smile. 7. Give Vice Presidential power that would allow Joe Biden to spank Ryan next time he tries to talk back to him. 8. Put a screen door on the front of the White House to keep the haters out.
I'm not even gonna gloat but this re-election effort began in 2009 with the Auto bailout and I realized Obama's ploy to pander to the mid- west. He continued the effort months later when he installed Sotomayor- a Hispanic, and of course a woman- to the Supreme Court. Student loan reform was log-rolled into Obamacare and Elena Kagan became another Justice. The vital coalition that re-elected Obama were brought on board early-on: Women, Youth, Minorities and most importantly Ohio. The remaining two years were 'just sidon dey look' as Mitt Romney 'self-deported' himself away from the White House with the help of the Tea Party. He had to climb a very high border fence built for him by Jan Brewer and Herman Cain. I love American politics, if you do the right things against all odds you'll be rewarded. In Obama's case, hugely!
Mitt Romney: On policies, you were no more rooted than a dandelion seed in flight – blown around by any and every breeze from the right. While running for President for 6+ years, you “STOOD FOR NOTHING”: you were a shape-shifting chameleon and a liar whose campaign was not dictated by fact checkers. Post-scriptum: Anne Romney: For your information the adults were in the room, i.e., the White House, since January 2009. Yesterday, U.S. voters voted to keep the adults in the room – making sure the greedy, insatiable, school-yard bullies, i.e., the top 1% and their drones, remain out of the room for at least another four years. George Will: Self-appointed and self-anointed spokesmen on all that is American, on Sunday, 04-Nov-2012, you made the following predictions about the yesterday’s Presidential Election: Electoral College Romney: 321 Obama: 217 Popular Vote Romney 49.7 Obama: 48.4 – once again showing how much you REALLY know about the PEOPLE of the United States of America.
Excerpts from an interesting article by David Kennedy about today's presidency: A big reason why any change is so difficult. In light of that dispiriting history, why would anyone wish the travails of the presidency upon himself? As President James Garfield put it in 1881, after just a few months in office: "My God! What is there in this place that a man should ever want to get into it?" Yet men have wanted it, desperately, including Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. Both of them might answer Garfield's question by saying, simply, that the Oval Office is a matchless place from which to serve one's country. But as Garfield and other presidents -- including Obama -- learned, the American presidency is a truly peculiar institution, with less power in actuality than folklore has it. The president and Vice President are but two of the 537 elected officials in Washington. Surrounding the White House is a political playing field mined with enough vetoes to stymie even the most ambitious of men. Yes, modern president ...
While independents may have thrown their support to Mitt Romney in key battleground states, exit poll data shows that Women Voters helped President Barack Obama win the White House. "Moms had a great deal at stake in this election and they voted their interests," Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, the executive director and co-founder of MomsRising, said in a statement. "From making the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act the first bill he signed into law as president, to his historic achievement of implementing Health Care Reform, President Obama has stood up for women, moms and their families and in this election, we stood up for him." Obama made his case with Women Voters early in the season, underscoring what many called a GOP-led "War on Women" and focusing on reproductive rights, access to health care and fair pay issues. According to ABC News, the president had a 12-point lead among women on Tuesday, up from his 8-point lead in 2008. In October, Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood, and Georgetown Univ ...
Mitt Romney didn't prepare a concession speech??? What speech did he prepare? Victory speech yaaa right that family was too big for the White House it's as big as King Mswati family kikikiki
10 Last Minute Scandals that could derail the US election: - The internet goes wild over the newly discovered confessional vlog of Felix, the *** sixth Romney boy. - Obama has an affair with Monica Lewinsky. - In a jokey moment gone awry at an Ohio diner, Joe Biden shoves a veteran out of his wheelchair. - It is revealed that Barack and Michelle Obama have been divorced for 15 years, and that their two daughters are just child actors. - A failed attempt at bringing some levity to Election Day, Mitt Romney inexplicably votes in blackface. - Michelle Obama seen watering marijuana plants in the White House garden. - Romney turns out to have been George W Bush with a mask on after having spent the last four years in the gym. - Paul Ryan is actually named Ryan Paul, son of Ron Paul. - Mitt Romney final releases his tax records revealing that he owns the California. - Tagg Romney challenges Mitt to single combat and defeats him, thus becoming the Alpha Romney.
Ohio State with 18 Electoral College votes has proved to be the toughest battle ground for both parties which wants to get a favourable result their to brighten their chances of winning the presidency. Historically, no Republican Party candidate has made it to the White House without winning in Ohio. Poll statistics favour President Obama who hold 48 per cent lead against Mitt Romney who hold 46%. Gary Anderson of Libertarian Party who is on the ballot in Ohio, hold 4% while the Green Party candidate also on the ballot has 2% of acceptance in the state. Analysis believe that the two minor parties on the ballot in Ohio.
He still doesn’t get much attention from the mainstream media, but Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson could be the key to who wins the White House on Tuesday — especially if he takes votes away from Barack Obama or Mitt Romney in Ohio or Colorado.
In truth I'm hoping for an Electoral College tie. The House will elect Mitt Romney, the Senate would elect Joe Biden for Vice President. It would be like Inspector Clouseau and Cato in the White House... Uncle Joe jumping around corners with an axe! That's prime-time entertainment right there!
..WASHINGTON (Reuters) - After a long and bitter White House campaign, Americans began casting their votes on Tuesday with polls showing President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney neck-and-neck in an election that will be decided in a handful of states. Polling stations opened across the eastern United States and parts of the Midwest as Election Day dawned. At least 120 million people were expected to render judgment on whether to give Obama a second term or replace him with Romney. Their decision will set the country's course for four years on spending, taxes, healthcare and foreign policy challenges like the rise of China and Iran's nuclear ambitions. National opinion polls show Obama and Romney in a virtual dead heat, although the Democratic incumbent has a slight advantage in several vital Swing States - most notably Ohio - that could give him the 270 electoral votes he needs to win. Romney, the multimillionaire former head of a private equity fund, would be the first Mormon presiden ...

I heard a great statement about Mitt Romney from a TV Newsman. He said and I quote, "Romney was born with a Silver Butt in his mouth" Now how creative and truthful is that. Romney made $15 million dollars by firing people, outsourcing American Jobs to China, and this was bailout money loaned to him and his business and banking partners. The President spoke the truth about the Presidency, the Election is about Trust, who do you trust. Very little has been done for the American People when it comes to the average everyday paycheck to paycheck person, and the month to month Social Security Recipients trying to live with the myriad of too many Republican Presidents, especially the Wars of the Bush's, the destruction of the Clinton Zero Deficit, handed to W in 2000, and absolutely Bushwacked to the tune of Trillions of dollars. Please voters this Democratic President has held this country together by a thread. We have not gone under, can anyone say he has had one enjoyable year in the White House. Nothin ...
Robert Reich: Mitt Romney IS the Economic Crisis So when Romney touts his business acumen, he's really bragging about his ability to take advantage of a tax code rigged by himself and others like him to skew the playing field in such a way that in reality poses very little personal risk to himself. Robert Reich says the attacks on Romney's tenure at Bain Capital miss the larger point, one which the White House is not even prepared to acknowledge: Mitt Romney is not simply a callous vulture capitalist, he is the living embodiment of the financial catastrophe that brought this country to the edge of ruin. [T]he real issue here isn’t Bain’s betting record. It’s that Romney’s Bain is part of the same system as Jamie Dimon’s JPMorgan Chase, Jon Corzine’s MF Global and Lloyd Blankfein’s Goldman Sachs—a system that has turned much of the economy into a betting parlor that nearly imploded in 2008, destroying millions of jobs and devastating household incomes. The winners in this system are top Wal ...
GOODLUCK Barack Obama!!! TAKE YOUR RIGHTFUL PLACE IN HISTORY GREAT BROTHER!!! As Americans cast their ballots today, inspite of the closeness of the opinion polls, i have a strong feeling that Barack Obama will win the Swing States of Ohio, Florida and Virginia and ultimately retain the White House. Thereafter racists like Rush Limbaugh, Jeb Bush, 'Pastor' Mike Huckabee and 'Evangelist' Billy Graham who aged 94, no longer knows if the Church of Mormon is a secret cult can go take a dive from the Statue of Liberty or hug Hurricane Sandy. Barack may not have been a perfect President but he sure is a better alternative to the consistently inconsistent Mitt Romney. With him the world is a safer place than the war mongering Romney. Goodluck Barack. I shall be watching Romney's concession speech and your acceptance speech with a glass of good wine and a smile playing on my lips. This is toasting to your victory today brother. FOUR MORE YEARS!!!
Did you know? Barack Obama and Mitt Romney toured Swing States in the final days of the presidential campaign to emphasize their differences. But the two candidates have at least one thing in common: A history of doggie controversy. Obama, who famously promised his daughters a dog if he won the White House, came under fire from animal welfare organizations in 2008 after he and his family adopted purebred Portuguese Water Dog "Bo" from the Kennedy family as opposed to getting a shelter dog as Obama had said the family would do. (Bo might be generously considered a "rescue dog," as he was first given to another family. That placement didn't work out, so the Kennedys took him back and gifted him to the Obamas instead.) Romney's canine controversy goes further back. In 2007, the Boston Globe opened a profile of Romney with an anecdote about a 1983 Romney family vacation. With the family station wagon packed to the gills, Romney strapped the family's Irish Setter "Seamus" to the top of the station wagon in a d ...
