50,000 Feet Looking Down

From RedState.com, By: Erick Erickson (Diary), November 2nd, 2012 at 10:36 PM –  

I believe Mitt Romney will win on election day.  I’m somewhat stunned to be writing that as I never really thought he could win until about the moment Clint Eastwood trotted out on stage at the Republican National Convention with that empty chair.

Obama’s Little Plan

National Review Online, By Larry Kudlow, October 24,2012 – Under pressure from Mitt Romney, President Obama has finally released his own policy vision for a second term. And yes, it’s the same old, same old. Some are calling it a second first term.There isn’t a single true economic-growth incentive in this scant plan. There’s no serious spending, deficit, and debt reduction, and no attempt to solve the Social Security and health-entitlement problems, which are moving us toward bankruptcy.

Nothing. Nada.

Obama Campaign Confronts Coal Miners With Lies

from RedState, by: streiff (Diary), October 14th, 2012 at 07:25 PM-

As has been pointed out by many people, the current regime is simply unable to accept dissent or disagreement. During the 2008 primary, Obama famously categorized people who were opposing him, at that time Democrats:

And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

It’s time to fill the empty chair

Can you name 10 things about America that are better now than they were before President Obama was elected?

Can you name five things…. three things…. Can you name even one thing that is better in America today than it was before Obama was elected President?  No?

Look who parks their cash at Bain

From the New York Post, By DEROY MURDOCK, September 1, 2012 – Democrats convened in Charlotte, NC, will double down on their claim that Bain Capital is really the Bain crime family. They will accuse Republican nominee Mitt Romney and Bain’s other “greedy” co-founders of stealing their winnings, evading taxes and lighting cigars with $100 bills on their yachts.

But Bain’s private-equity executives have enriched dozens of organizations and millions of individuals in the Democratic base — including some who scream most loudly for President Obama’s re-election.

Romney in Crisis: Two Dark Spots in Fortunate Life

From The New York Times, By , August 24, 2012 –

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney was, uncharacteristically, terrified.

Mitt Romney was hospitalized after a deadly car crash in France in 1968 when he was 21 and a Mormon missionary.

It was the fall of 1998, the height of Mr. Romney’s high-flying career as a private equity executive. But his wife, Ann, was not well. She was exhausted, and having difficulty walking; her right foot was dragging. When a neurologist at Massachusetts General Hospital arrived at a diagnosis — multiple sclerosis — “they just held each other in their arms,” their son Josh said, “and just cried.”

Thirty years earlier, in the spring of 1968, Mr. Romney, then a Mormon missionary in France, had a scare of a different sort. He was at the wheel of a tiny Citroën, cruising along a country road, when a Mercedes rounded a curve and crashed into his car, head on. One of his passengers — the wife of the French mission president — was killed. Mr. Romney, by all accounts not at fault, was knocked unconscious and mistakenly pronounced dead at the scene.

From Mormonism to Jeremiah Wright, everything’s fair game when you run for president

From The DailyCaller.com, By Jamie Weinstein, May 21, 2012 – President Obama’s senior campaign advisor David Axelrod said Sunday on CNN that Mitt Romney’s Mormonism is “not fair game” during the presidential campaign.

He’s wrong.

Mitt Romney’s Mormonism is indeed fair game, as is President Obama’s long-time association with the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. That’s because Obama and Romney are running for the presidency of the United States of America, not some dingbat city council seat. And when you are competing for the highest office in the land — the most important elected position in the entire world — everything is fair game. Everything.

The Elephant in the Room

Erick Erickson

From RedState.com, Posted by Erick Erickson, February 24, 2012 – He was the elephant in the room, so to speak, at the CNN Debate in Mesa, AZ. And this issue is why Campaign 2012 on the Republican side is so depressing.

The he is George W. Bush. And the issue is that Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney spent most of the debate campaigning against George W. Bush without using his name.

Amid Rivalry, Friendship Blossoms on the Campaign Trail

The New York Times, By Jr., February 16, 2012 –

LAKE JACKSON, Tex. — Once there was a challenge of a softball game from the Ron Paul clan to the Mitt Romney clan. “They didn’t show up,” Mr. Paul says. “We didn’t schedule it. We really razz them about that, ‘You guys chickened out!’ ”

When Mr. Paul’s campaign jet broke down last year in Wolfeboro, N.H., Mr. Romney’s wife, Ann, offered to let Mr. Paul, an aide and one of his granddaughters stay the night at their summer home on Lake Winnipesaukee. When Mr. Romney arrived later, he offered his jet to take them home to Texas. Mr. Paul, not wanting to impose, was grateful but declined both offers.

Mitt Romney Didn’t Just Give Planned Parenthood Money, He Gave Them Extra Power

From RedState.com, by Erick Erickson, December 30, 2011 –  You should be quite familiar by now with the fact that Mitt Romney gave $150.00 to Planned Parenthood in 1994 when claiming he had always been pro-abortion.

You should also know that in 2004, Mitt Romney says he personally converted to the pro-life position. In fact, according to ABC News on June 14, 2007, “Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has long cited a November 2004 meeting with a Harvard stem-cell researcher as the moment that changed his long-held stance of supporting abortion rights to his current ‘pro-life’ position opposing legal abortion. But several actions Romney took mere months after that meeting call into question how deep-seated his conversion truly was.” Continue reading →
