    It's the Messaging, Stupid. It's the Stupid Messaging.

    As many have already discussed, Karl Rove has launched an organization, the Conservative Victory Group, that purports to work on behalf of conservative candidates to shore up our numbers in Congress and bring our party into the 21st century.

    Barack Obama’s Halloween Theatrics

    Barack Obama’s Presidential Campaign would like the children to sing to you. Relax and enjoy.

    Mitt Romney may have nothing left to fear from his challenger, Barack Obama except fear itself. Barack Obama could run for reelection using all the wonderful things he’s done for America in his first term of office. He could fill us all to the inebriated brim with hope about his ambitious, progressive, forward-looking and unprecedented 2nd term agenda. Oh, wait…Nope, he’ll be scaremongering from here until we go to the polls.

    The Last Debate

    The Last Debate

    Barack Obama and Mitt Romney meet to discuss and debate foreign policy tonight. Will Romney pull his Libya punches again tonight? Probably not, but the Obama team has worked overtime pushing a false narrative about Al Qaeda in Libya. The Romney Team has put together a debate widget so you can follow along.

    Charles Boustany: The Most Pro-Palestinian Republican in Congress

    The primaries ended a long time ago, and we are all focused assiduously on the general election.  However, there is one major Republican primary contest that is still outstanding.  The member-on-member battle between conservative Jeff Landry and pro-Palestinian leftist Charles Boustany in Louisiana District 3.

    CAUGHT ON TAPE: Democrat Congressional Candidate Tussles with Cameraman & Takes Camera

    In the world of politics, trackers have become a part of campaign life. Sometimes they are professionals and sometimes they are concerned citizens who are simply filming and happen to catch something on camera. YouTube has become the stomping grounds for pushing video out that reveals sides of politicians that they’d rather the public didn’t see. Yet, amazingly enough, these candidates never seem to accept | Read More »

    (Video) Rep. Perlmutter Supporters Have No Clue Why They Support Rep. Perlmutter

    With all the talk of polling and issues that are important to voters, Caleb Bonham at Revealing Politics decided to ask some people in Colorado why they support their Democrat congressman, Ed Perlmutter. The answers varied but all boiled down to one thing: they have no idea why they support him, they just do. Perhaps it’s time for Ed to worry less about how Obamacare | Read More »

    Barack Obama Leading From Behind On China

    Barack Obama Leading From Behind On China

    The United States is filing a trade complaint against China. This comes as the President heads to the swing state of Ohio. Naturally he says it is not politically. But really? Mitt Romney has been pounding on the China issue for weeks. He’s made being tough with China a central part of his campaign. In fact, before the news came out today, Mitt Romney’s campaign | Read More »

    President Obama Has Missed Half His Daily Intelligence Briefings

    As North African blows up this morning it is worth reminding you of Marc Thiessen’s column from two days ago. President Obama is touting his foreign policy experience on the campaign trail, but startling new statistics suggest that national security has not necessarily been the personal priority the president makes it out to be. It turns out that more than half the time, the commander | Read More »

    The Beginning of the End

    Today marks the beginning of the end of Campaign 2012. This week, here in Tampa, Republicans will go through a well scripted event designed to make Mitt Romney their nominee. Democrats will reciprocate next week in Charlotte, NC.The GOP’s convention almost became unscripted with a heavy handed move designed to ensure a coronation and shut out the grassroots from nomination fights.

    Let’s Put Ron Gould Over the Top

    Who in the world is focusing on some little known congressional primaries in the midst of the Republican National Convention? We are.  And you should too. Unfortunately, many of those we elected to the House in 2010 were not the Tea Partiers we thought they were.  In fact, a number of them have become conduits for leadership instead of stewards of the Constitution.  Honestly, we | Read More »

    If Only Paul Ryan’s Plan Were as Radical as the Democrats Claim

    “Choice for Republicans involves trusting the American people to handle their affairs and retirement. Choice for Democrats involves only the option to kill children, with everything else pre-packaged in one size fits all government bureaucracy.” It is mathematically indisputable that should President Barack Obama obtain his legislative desire and increase taxes on those making $250,000.00 a year or more the nation would not close even | Read More »

    Saturday on Twitter, my buddy Tom Crowe summed up what the two Presidential campaigns are all about: So #2012election comes down to GOP: “We trust you.” vs. Dems: “Trust us.” — Tom Crowe (@TomCrowe) August 11, 2012 This should not be a hard sell.
