Romney Opted Out to Let Bush Win

bush romney It is quite probable that Mitt Romney opted out of the race because Bush offered him a prize to do so. Good news and bad news reported by Reuters yesterday: “Romney opts against 2016 run for president.” Republican Mitt Romney opted out of the 2016 presidential race on Friday after considering whether to run for a third time, telling supporters it is time for the next generation of Republican leaders to seek the White House. "After putting considerable thought into making another run Read more [...] Continue reading →

Do Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush Stand a Chance?

bush romney Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush don’t seem that attractive to the voters. One of my favorite funny moments from the campaign season leading up to the 2008 presidential elections was this one: Back in 2007, Giuliani was pushed forward as a serious contender, “a proven leader.” And yet what happened? He completely failed to gain significant voters. He never had a chance. That’s how much our elites know about what really matters to Republican voters. So now that Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney Read more [...] Continue reading →

Could President Romney Lift People out of Poverty?

091712_romney_640 Mitt Romney wants to run a campaign promising to lift people out of poverty. Could he do it? I’ve already expressed my disbelief that Mitt Romney wants to run for President again. But his attempt to change “tone” is interesting. According to the New York Times, Speaking below deck on the Midway, an aircraft carrier converted to a floating museum in the San Diego harbor, Mr. Romney criticized President Obama and sketched out a three-pronged campaign platform should he seek the presidency Read more [...] Continue reading →

Why Is Mitt Romney Threatening to Run for President Again?

Romney Logo_cropped What makes a two-time loser like Mitt Romney think he can win the next presidential election? Just after Jeb Bush was announced as the great Republican hope, suddenly Mitt Romney has appeared as the other GOP savior. Since Romney allegedly used his own money in his last two runs (or is that completely true?) I have to respect his willingness to take such a risk again. But the entire idea seems delusional to me. First, he lost to John McCain who lost to Barack Obama, then he lost to Barack Read more [...] Continue reading →

GOP Money Already Choosing our Next Republican Candidate

Bush boys Is GOP money going to be able to buy the next president or do we get to vote for him? Despite the fact that Republicans have been handed a huge victory on an anti-Obamacare platform, and despite the fact that we have seen amazing Tea Party victories against the establishment, running an anti-crony-“capitalism” campaign, the Big Money Republicans think they can control the next election. And they are absolutely shameless about it. To these people, the only reasonable options are Jeb Bush, Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Romney Hillary Race: Not Winnable for Republicans

romney Maybe I am over-interpreting, but it seems like the Weekly Standard is hoping for a Romney Hillary race. If I am right, I don’t think they show they understand much about how races are won. (If that statement seems arrogant on my part, just remember that “their guys” lost in 2008 and 2012, and they are currently trying to breathe life into a two-time presidential failure—the guy that Republicans in 2008 rejected for McCain because McCain was more conservative.) But look at their Read more [...] Continue reading →

Afghanistan Forever Thanks to Barack Obama: Will We Really Be Withdrawn in 2016?

Afghanistan Map From Associated Press: “Obama seeks to keep 9,800 US troops in Afghanistan after year's end.” President Barack Obama will seek to keep 9,800 U.S. troops in Afghanistan after the war formally ends later this year and then withdraw most of those forces by 2016, senior U.S. administration officials said Tuesday. Obama's decision is largely in line with what military commanders have been seeking and would allow the president to fully end the American-led military effort by the time he leaves office. The Read more [...] Continue reading →

Liberals: If We Can’t Make Hobby Lobby Support Birth Control, How Can We Force Photographers To Attend Same Sex Weddings?

hobby lobby Just so you know how freedom has become meaningless to the cultural left, they are in a twist that if Hobby Lobby wins the right to not cover “birth control” on religious grounds, then it might not be possible for homosexual couples to force photographers to affirm same sex “marriage.” From the Huffington Post: Arizona's attempt to let businesses refuse to serve LGBT people on religious grounds sparked significantly more bipartisan outrage than Republicans' similar efforts to allow companies Read more [...] Continue reading →

Mitt Romney: "We Kind Of Had To Steal The Republican Nomination"

MittRomney The documentary is called “MITT” but from what I see in reviews, it should have been called “LOSER.” It is a movie of the Mitt Romney Presidential campaigns, and most viewers are claiming that the most apparent take away from the documentary is Mitt Romney’s lack of confidence. As Byron York summarize: …for viewers who follow politics closely, especially for Republicans who desperately wanted to defeat Barack Obama, there is a revelation in "Mitt" that is not just unexpected but Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Nobel Peace Prize Winner Is Committing Blood & Treasure To Forever War

war obama Remember how President Obama promised to win in Afghanistan and then leave? Not happening. NBC News reports: While many Americans have been led to believe the war in Afghanistan will soon be over, a draft of a key U.S.-Afghan security deal obtained by NBC News shows the United States is prepared to maintain military outposts in Afghanistan for many years to come, and pay to support hundreds of thousands of Afghan security forces. The wide-ranging document, still unsigned by the United States Read more [...] Continue reading →

If You Voted For Romney To Get Rid Of Obamacare, His Presidency Would Have Disappointed You

obama-romney The New American covers Mitt Romney’s recent interview with David Gregory on "Meet the Press, in which he admitted that health insurance, after Romneycare, became more expensive in Massachusetts than in any other state. Despite all these negatives — not to mention the fact that Romneycare has caused such high healthcare costs in Massachusetts that the state has imposed price controls on healthcare — Romney still stands by his law as the right plan for Massachusetts, and possibly for the rest Read more [...] Continue reading →

Romney was Right about Russia and Obama Was Wrong

Russia In their third presidential debate, President Obama ridiculed Mitt Romney when he said that Russia remained a threat to the United States. Here’s what Obama said in the debate: PRESIDENT OBAMA: “Governor Romney, I’m glad that you recognize that al-Qaida’s a threat because a few months ago when you were asked, what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia — not al-Qaida, you said Russia. And the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, Read more [...] Continue reading →
