What a guy,” Mr. […]

Crist was rumored to be on the GOP Veep short list in 2008, but McCain ultimately went with Palin. Then he wanted the GOP Senate seat in Florida, but lost to Marco Rubio when he ran as an Independent when Rubio showed too much juice as a Tea Party candidate. The big knock against Crist […]

VIDEO: Romney Actually Goes There With Birther Joke

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Romney, Video

Probably the saddest appeal to the base yet. Can’t believe he went there. Here’s his quote… “I love being home, in this place where Ann and I were raised, where but the both of us were born,” Romney said after introducing his wife, fellow Michigan native Ann. “No one’s ever asked to see my birth […]

It’s unsustainable, stupid.

By mw | Related entries in Debt, Deficit, Divided Government, europe, Fiscal Responsibility, Health Care, Obama, Romney

In the 1992 presidential campaign, James Carville’s motivational meme “It’s the economy, stupid.” perfectly encapsulated the key issue of the election. In 2012 “It’s unsustainable, tuip”. You may not like the Romney/Ryan plans for dealing with our unsustainable spending, debt and entitlements, but at least it is a substantive plan and they are willing to talk about it during this campaign. If the Democrats and the Obama administration have a sustainable fiscal plan for the United States government I don’t know what it is, and they sure seem reluctant to talk about putting anything meaningful on the table. The easiest thing for the President to do would be to embrace the Simpson-Bowles plan. It was his commission. It was his idea. If the 2012 presidential election comes down to a choice between a candidate with a serious plan to get us out of this morass vs. a candidate that appears to ignore it – the man with the plan wins.

Todd Akin Cuts New TV Ad/Apology, Looks To Be Staying In

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Missouri, Republicans, Senate, Video

So all of those GOP pundits were wrong? Perhaps. Here’s his new ad… Let’s get one thing straight. Akin didn’t use the wrong words. He clearly suggested that a rape victim’s body could cleanse itself. Also, the word “legitimate” is not a misstep. Especially in the context of what he said. Also, keep in mind […]

Todd Akin’s Facebook Page Announces He’s Staying In The Race

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Missouri, Politics, Republicans, tea party, WTF?

First, a screenshot of the status update his campaign posted on his Facebook Page two hours ago. As you can see, the comments are not kind. Still, this is the LAST word we’ve had from the Akin campaign. This is after all the interviews he gave, all the statements by every Republican that matters currently […]
