Mitt Romney’s Remarks are Another Chick-Fil-A Moment
Just a few months ago, Dan Cathy of Chick-Fil-A, gave an interview to a Christian publication that asked him about the Chick-Fil-A Foundation’s support of marriage. Cathy defending his position and spoke about his family’s faith. CNN.com picked it up and ran a story that Cathy had come out against gay marriage. In fact, Cathy hadn’t been asked directly about gay marriage, but it was | Read More »
Conservatives Agree: Romney’s Right
I stand second to none in being critical of Mitt Romney’s campaign. Hell, on MSNBC yesterday, Bay Buchanan lit into me as having never been with them and finding things to criticize. So pay attention here. Michael Warren is engaged in some beltway thinking that I think has plagued the Romney camp and which has always been a chief concern. For once, we see Mitt | Read More »
Tech at Night: BRAINS; White House admits cybersecurity rule by decree is coming
Chuck Schumer is introducing the BRAINS Act and it’s not even about zombie preparedness. Come on, get on the ball guys. Well, it’s actually a bill about getting smart people into the US from other countries. However, rather than lock them down and distort the market with H1-Bs, we’ll give them a path to a green card. Sounds good to me. Though I also like Lamar Smith’s eliminating of the diversity lottery.
And the administration admits rule by decree is in the works for cybersecurity. Night and day. That’s the difference between Mitt Romney and Barry Obama, folks.

Treat the Press as Enemy Collaborators
“So how do you feel about your new position with Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL)?” asked Media Bistro of Jonathan Allen. “Certainly excited. I’m happy to go to work for someone who inspires me and who I admire. I’m hopeful I can advance the Democratic Party’s goals and obviously, the congresswoman’s goals,” Jonathan Allen replied. Jonathan Allen is now the Politico’s senior Washington correspondent. This | Read More »
Mitt Romney, Friend in Need
The Obama campaign has spent months laboring to get this election to be about anything but the president’s record and the candidates’ policy proposals. As often happens in campaigns, this requires painting caricatures with no connection to the facts. The Obama camp has worked hard to make Mitt Romney out as a bad, unfeeling, cold-hearted rich guy who only cares about his own bottom line. | Read More »
Waiting For Superman In The Windy City
We all know who could settle the current public school teacher strike in Chicago. Karen Lewis tells us the delegates could settle it by this Wednesday, provided they like the latest proposal from the Mayor. Mayor Emanuel tells us the strike is illegal and the Cook County Circuit Court could order the work stoppage unclogged with a flourish of the judicial pen. The parents of 350,000 children, who sit at home and in some cases unsupervised, thought they had elected Mayor Emanuel to deal with this sort of situation. Yet one man could make one or two phone calls and turn this whole thing off like a light. Unfortunately, that chair sits empty.

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 »
On Stuart Stevens Contrasted with Eric Fehrnstrom
II actually had not seen this Politico piece until this morning when people were sending me links. I’ve been on a mini-vacation. Let me just note a few points. First, yes I know Stevens did not participate in the New Republic profile, but those things do not happen by accident. Second, when the Politico is running stories like this followed by Stevens says he will | Read More »
If The Election Were Held Today Barack Obama Would Win
Contra Dick Morris, Mitt Romney is not winning this election. At least Mitt Romney is not winning the election right now. Conservatives are obsessing over every poll, the turn out models used, and the media bias that is on ful display. Yes, some of the polling models seem screwy, though we all forget the pollsters apply a secret sauce known only to them on top. | Read More »
The American Media Beclowned Themselves Yesterday
Yesterday, as the American consulate in Libya was smoking and the rioters were returning in Egypt, the President of the United States flew off to Las Vegas for a fundraiser while his spokesman was telling the American press corps that yesterday wasn’t really a normal political day. Had it been George W. Bush, the media would, right now, be marching on the White House with | Read More »
Obama Compares His Campaign Volunteers to those Killed at the Embassy in Libya
For all the talk about Mitt Romney being out of touch, you certainly don’t have to look very hard to find examples of President Obama demonstrating just how bad of a tin ear he has. Even worse, for Obama at least, is that his out of touch moments frequently manifest in the worst possible ways. We saw evidence of that earlier this week when Obama | Read More »
The Right Scoop Captures Audio From Inside the Conventional Wisdom Factory
Just yesterday I described for you how conventional wisdom is created. Reporters gather together and come up with it. Then they report it as news. One of the ways reporters do that is to work together to formulate questions between each other. They only have a limited amount of time and they all want a question that helps push the Gang of 500′s narrative. That | Read More »
Mitt Romney’s remarks (link to video, including questions).
I personally would have been a good deal more cutting, but then I personally would never make it past the tryouts for the auditions for the contest to be President of the United States. The man understands the problem, which is not “Free speech is provocative,” and never mind what those racists in the progressive antiwar movement think.

Mitt Romney Should Raise These Questions
Mitt Romney is in a difficult position. On September 11, 2012, radical Islamists stormed the American Embassy in Cairo, tore down and burned the American flag, and hoisted a black flag associated with Al Qaeda. In Libya, radical Islamists did the same, but also set the embassy on fire, fired rockets, and killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and at least three other State Department employees.

Sometimes a Cake Really Is A Cake. Sometimes a Polling Trend Really is Accurate.
The Romney campaign this morning put out a memo telling everyone to calm down, don’t worry, things are fine. Superficially, I agree. Bill Clinton helped Barack Obama more than Mitt Romney helped himself in the past few weeks. But the economic numbers are really not good and things on the horizon appear to be getting worse. Voters will start factoring in those variables in the | Read More »
