In the aftermath of the second town-hall style Presidential debate, Democrats pounced on a statement made by Governor Romney concerning a question about equal pay for women in the workplace. His explanation of how his administration worked with women’s groups included recounting that the women’s groups brought them “binders full of women.” The statement exploded immediately, with those on the left painting the Governor as | Read More »
Originally published on 10/9/2012 In preparation for the upcoming presidential debate on foreign policy, let’s examine key areas of the president’s foreign policy as compared to Mitt Romney’s stated foreign policy goals. Iran The Obama administration continues to refuse to set “red lines” for Iran, apparently unmoved by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s recent speech to the United Nations. The sanctions | Read More »
With the continuing furor erupting concerning the highly partisan nature displayed by Candy Crowley during the second presidential debate, the real question has evaded the American voter. Who is truly responsible for acts of journalistic misconduct and what should be done when a debate moderator decides to go rogue, as Crowley did in favoring Obama? The Commission on Presidential Debates is the organization which sponsors | Read More »

Last night, during the second Presidential debate, President Obama and Mitt Romney engaged in one of the most heated exchanges of the campaign yet. When asked by an audience member about the lack of enhanced security in Benghazi prior to the attack on the Libyan embassy, President Obama stammered through a lame response that ultimately failed to address the question.
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech discuss last night’s presidential debate, Romney’s missed opportunities, how Candy Crowley helped Obama on Libya, and what to expect from the final debate next week.
Longtime RedStaters might remember the old Roundtables we used to do (although in fairness, that was long before my time on the Front Page). For a while now, we’ve been trying to restart them. This election gives us a perfect opportunity, so we decided to do a Roundtable on the first debate and where we go from here. This covers our discussions before, during, and | Read More »
That whooshing sound you heard, after the first presidential debate on Wednesday night, was the collective exhalation of the breath of every Patriot Tea Party member in the nation. We’d all hoped that Mitt Romney would at least hold his own with the ‘Anointed One’, whose brilliance, we had been assured by the Lame Stream Press, eclipsed that of all mortal men. To my absolute | Read More »
Leading up to last night the narrative within the media realm was that Mitt Romney needed a flawless, not near flawless, a flawless performance; a game changer if you will. I suspect, given his performance the president and his team arrogantly thought Romney was there to just as we say in the boxing world, “make up the numbers”. This was Tyson v Douglas, Holyfield v | Read More »
Why is Ron Paul splintering votes in the Republican Presidential Candidacy run? Ron Paul is not just an innocent bystander so strongly convicted that he believes he’ll be the next Presidential Candidate for 2012. There is a behind the scenes strategy that is very likely is a pay back against Newt Gingrich. When Newt was Speaker of the House, he didn’t support Ron Paul’s run | Read More »
It’s now been over 72 hours and the first debate is becoming a distant memory. Here are my last thoughts. Feel free to offer yours, and then let’s put this puppy to bed. 1. Herman Cain “won” but it doesn’t matter. None of the Sunday talk shows invited him to be a guest, and even the panel of Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace didn’t | Read More »
Immediately following the Republican Presidential Debate, Ron Paul has received over $1million and counting in donations, according to Ron Paul’s Exploratory Committee web-site ( www.ronpaul2012.com ). In addition, based on the latest CNN poll, taken before the debate, “Who does best against Obama? Paul. The congressman from Texas, who also ran as a libertarian candidate for president in 1988 and who is well liked by | Read More »
The best Republican candidates have decided not to run! Tomorrow night, Fox News will broadcast a debate between the declared Republican candidates: Tim Pawlenty, Ron Paul, Gary Johnson, Rick Santorum, and Herman Cain. Two other declared candidates: Buddy Roemer and Fred Karger have been excluded because they don’t have even 1% support. What a joke. Wouldn’t you rather have a debate between the Republican | Read More »
