Next-Gen GOP Leaders Slam Romney
for ´Gift´ Remarks

Big Government, by Willilam Bigelow

Original Article

Posted By:trapper, 11/15/2012 8:58:44 PM

The new spiritual leaders of the Republican Party have come out swinging against Mitt Romney for his controversial remarks on a donor conference call about why Barack Obama won reelection. According to the New York Times, Romney said Obama had followed the “old playbook” of using targeted initiatives to woo specific interest groups — “especially the African-American community, the Hispanic community and young people.”

Comments:
First, who made Jindahl, Rubio, and Scott our "spiritual leaders"? Second, according to Gov. Scott of Florida "we want to take care of every citizen in our state.” Really? THAT is now what Republicans stand for? Sigh.

I´ll repeat it here: If Rubio and Jindal are the "Next-Gen GOP" then we need to skip a generation.

I like Rubio, but he´s starting to get on my nerves, and never cared for Jindal at all and wouldn´t vote for him if he was running for dog catcher

The future of the republican party, the conservative movement and this country does not run through Barb Bush´s rolodex.

This is the ideas wing of the party, not the party of connections, prep school ties and well financed Wall Street acquaintances. They grew up on Reagan and Kemp, not the middle of the road free shrimp and merlot country club republicanism of Rockfeller and Bush.
2010 and the T party movement was born out of frustration and disgust not only with Obama, but with the republican party establishment that views middle America as weird, church going rubes who are only there for pandering. No more Bushes, or Bush surrogates, no more Romneys. The ideas articulated by other presidential candidates caught attention, generated discussion and provided meaningful contrast to the Obama administration, even without the help of the media.
The times, they are a changin.

Romney was right. Marco and Bobby are talking to their base now that the 2012 election is over. Why don´t they hone in on all the irregularities of the vote before they start criticizing the Candidate? Romney´s biggest problem was the same as George W. Bush´s problem - he was too nice. I just wish he would have been more aggressive. I really was hoping to have a lovely First Lady - one who really could relate to people.

The GOP is somewhat to blame, too. Mainly Romney´s advisers who also advised McCain really lost the election for us. Schmidt and the woman (can´t remember her name)went by the 2008 playbook instead of making a new one for 2012.

Rubio is not a natural-born citizen, therefore, not qualified for the presidency.

The giveaways sure helped 0bama, but Romney´s campaign was the reason that 0bama won. Well, Romney´s campaign, and some Republican feet in their mouths.

What Romney said was true, PC or not. Why the heck are we concentrating on what he says now anyway? Has he not been excoriated enough? Can the GOP only make itself stronger by attempting to tear down a candidate that the MSM and Democrats already have? Losing strategy and it sickens me.

Romney really tone deaf to the feelings of Republicans right now. Dana Perino actually said it today "Go away Mitt. Enjoy your vacation." Keep mouth closed.

My decision has been made --- 2016 election -- No Tea Party Conservative Party candidate, I will not vote for the first time in my long life.

I´ve had enough of R & D. I´ve defended repubs all my life -- I now feel like a used up whore.

I´ve got a better idea, instead of becoming democrats why don´t we educate the public on liberty, freedom and the free market. Let´s take back our schools, let´s take down the liberal media, let´s take over the Republican party leadership positions at all levels instead of complaining about it being run by the elits.

And the beat goes on.. Jindal-Rubio the last great hope of the GOP! I seem to remember those great "conservatives", Colin Powell, Chris Christie and even Scott Brown being mentioned as possible "presidential candidates" by some geniuses in the GOP hierarchy. I agree with OP, #1, #8, and #9.

Why Westernized Muslims
Become ´Radicalized´
American Thinker, by Raymond Ibrahim    Original Article
Posted By: trapper- 4/17/2014 2:00:22 PM     Post Reply
A new Danish statistical study finds that “Muslims [are] 218 percent more criminal in second generation than first.” While some of these crimes are clearly related to Islam – such as attacks on Muslim apostates to Christianity – others, such as rampant theft against non-Muslims, would appear banal, until one realizes that even robbery and plunder are justified by Islamic doctrine – as one U.K. Muslim cleric once clearly said. The interesting question here is why second-generation Muslims, who are presumably more Westernized than their Muslim parents, are also more “radical.”

In 2011 Barack Obama led an allied military intervention in Libya without consulting the US Congress. Last August, after the sarin attack on the Damascus suburb of Ghouta, he was ready to launch an allied air strike, this time to punish the Syrian government for allegedly crossing the ‘red line’ he had set in 2012 on the use of chemical weapons.? Then with less than two days to go before the planned strike, he announced that he would seek congressional approval for the intervention. The strike was postponed as Congress prepared for hearings, and subsequently cancelled when Obama accepted Assad’s

When U.S. Steps Back, Will Russia

The United States is planning to give up its last remaining authority over the technical management of the Internet. The Commerce Department announced Friday that it will give the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), an international nonprofit group, control over the database of names and addresses that allows computers around the world to connect to each other. Administration officials say U.S. authority over the Internet address system was always intended to be temporary and that ultimate power should rest with the "global Internet community." But some fear that the Obama administration is opening the door to an

Below the Radar: Tatars in Crimea
American Thinker, by Rick Moran    Original Article

One of the least reported angles to the Crimea story is the plight of Russia´s Tatars - an ethnic group that was forcibly removed from their original home in the Crimea following World War II for supposedly collaborating with the Nazis. Only in the last few years have the Tatars been allowed to return. So you will forgive them for not quite trusting the Russians to keep their word. New Republic: The Crimean Tatars became one of the key strands of the dissident movement. When their activists were jailed, news reached the West by the same channels that kept information about Alexander Solzhenitsyn and

   

 



 
Can There Be Meaningful Immigration
Reform Without Citizenship?
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article
Posted By: trapper- 3/6/2014 9:55:35 PM     Post Reply
CPAC presented a panel on immigration today. I wasn’t there, but this report suggests that the panel was an improvement over last year’s, which was basically a cheerleading session for amnesty and a path to citizenship. Unlike last year, today’s panel included one member, Derrick Morgan of the Heritage Foundation, who opposes that agenda. The panel was supposed to discuss this question: “Can there be meaningful immigration reform without citizenship?” The answer is “yes” if one believes that amnesty represents meaningful immigration reform.

Google Ordered to Remove
anti-Islamic Film from YouTube

A U.S. appeals court on Wednesday ordered Google Inc to remove from its YouTube video-sharing website an anti-Islamic film that had sparked protests across the Muslim world. By a 2-1 vote, a panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday rejected Google´s assertion that the removal of the film "Innocence of Muslims," amounted to a prior restraint of speech that violated the U.S. Constitution. The plaintiff, Cindy Lee Garcia, had objected to the film after learning that it incorporated a clip she had made for a different movie, which had been partially dubbed and in which she

Putin and Godfather II

At the Olympics opener, there was Vladimir Putin, looking every inch the stolid Michael Corleone in the baptism scene from Godfather II. Putin was waiting impassively for those big snowflakes to turn into Olympic rings while plans were hatching in the Ukraine to commit murder. The Corleone baptism went better than the snowflakes spectacular, though. The snowflakes malfunction was worthy of the Soviet era. One snowflake failed to transform -- except on Russian TV, which, per London´s Telegraph, opens magically as Putin watches coolly. Fakery has always been a Russian specialty; brutality another.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
