Romney Wins Virginia, Vermont and Massachusetts, But Race Tighter Than Ever

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Newt, Republicans, Romney, Ron Paul, Santorum

So looks like Romney racked up some early, easy wins tonight, but if I’m in the Romney camp…I’m not a happy camper. Why? Several reasons… First, Santorum and Gingrich weren’t even on the ballot in Virginia. And while Romney did get nearly 60% of the vote…it was against Ron Paul. Not exactly a ringing endorsement. […]

David Frum’s problem is still obvious.

By mw | Related entries in Conservatism, Conventions, Libertarian, Partisan Hacks, Republicans, Ron Paul

David Frum has determined that Ron Paul “minions” (by which he means United States citizens who are supporting, contributing to, and volunteering for the Ron Paul campaign) are trying to “hijack” the Republican Convention (by which he means working to get delegates who support Ron Paul elected to the convention). How are the “minions” going to pull off this nefarious plot? This is the unbelievable part… and one hell of a scoop by David Frum… wait for it… They are going to understand the rules, bylaws, process, and etiquette for electing GOP delegates in every state, then try to get Ron Paul delegates elected. Holy crap! I mean – how underhanded can you get?

George Will: Unfortunate SOTU metaphors and the “unfettered executive”

By mw | Related entries in Constitution, Divided Government, Newt, Obama, Ron Paul, State Of The Union

George Will’s latest column is a pitch perfect observation on how President Obama’s State of the Union address betrays a longing for an “unfettered executive” branch by his administration and among his supporters. Will’s column is not without false notes. He implies by omission that the desire for an unfettered executive branch is unique to the progressive wing of the Democratic Party. Not so.

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Huntsman, New Hampshire, Newt, Perry, Romney, Ron Paul, Santorum

One Last Iowa Caucus Poll: Ron Paul, Mitt Romney Virtually Tied…Santorum Gaining

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Iowa, Polls, Republicans, Romney, Ron Paul, Santorum

Public Policy Polling is out with their final numbers and it’s a photo finish… It looks like pretty much everybody has lost support in this except Santorum and Gingrich. And Santorum hasn’t had millions of dollars in negative ads lobbed his way. Maybe that’s why his favorability numbers are so high… Santorum’s net favorability of […]

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Ron Paul

Lots of talk recently about Ron Paul’s newsletters. But, as some of you may remember, we covered this ground a LONG time ago. In fact, the first mention of it was back in August 2007 in a post I wrote called Being Realistic On Ron Paul, where I called upon his supporters to answer 7 […]
