Former Republican Congressman
Watts hints at bid for RNC
chairmanship

Former Republican Rep. J.C. Watts is hinting at a potential bid to become the next Republican National Committee chairman. Watts, a black conservative, told Politico he has been “encouraged” by supporters, amid the Republican Party’s post-election commitment to appeal to a wider range of voters including Hispanics and African Americans. Reince Priebus has already announced he will seek a second term as RNC chairman and reportedly has enough support among the group’s 167 voting members to win re-election. The former Wisconsin Republican Party chairman has been credited with restoring a financially troubled RNC, which he took over in

Comments:
How about Allen West? He would sure shake things up. The RINO´s in the party would be apoplectic.

I don´t think we need to have a Black Chairman just for the sake of pleasing the Black community. They vote Democrat. I think Reince Priebus did a fantastic job this election cycle. He inherited a financial mess and turned it around. I would vote to keep him if I were granted a vote!

Watt had to be physically restrained from beating the Hades out of Pete Stark once. This guy doesn’t take it from the Dems and has a fighter spirit. I would support him.

Watts does not have the TV demeanor we require at this time. He is so monotone and milquetoast on air. This is an important PR job and a man like Allen West would really move us forward.

Someone who could help win elections is needed. I respect Allen West, but he could not even do that. Someone who will accomplish victories is needed more than someone who will simply throw red meat.

Watts is a great guy, and has many strengths, but he isn´t suited for this position. He isn´t capable of taking on the left´s worst scum on TV, and that´s what this job has become. Preibus has done a good job. Allen West would also be great, but this kind of mud-wrestling is beneath the dignity of such an honorable warrior.

I am a longtime OU football fan and have admired Mr. Watts during and after his football career. Having said that, I think he lacks the leadership abilities and communicative skills and presence we need, and putting him there because of his race isn´t workable if we truly respect merit and capability.

I agree with #1 that Priebus has done well - he isn´t to blame for a presidential campaign that faltered and 3-4 extremely stupid and unmanageable senate candidates. But I´d like to see someone who is more energetic and believes in the platform the way that Bill Whittle expressed in his recent video.

J.C. Watts has been a success in many pursuits - in football, Congress, his ministry, and in business. He will have my support.
I take nothing away from Mr. Priebus, but we have to change our approach and Watts can do what Priebus cannot. Mr. Preibus should understand that and do what is best for the party.
One more thing: J.C. Watts ia, and has been, a conservative when it has counted. He is not a firebrand. He is a winner.

Anybody but Steele? He was in charge in 2010. MSNBC hated him. He had the nerve to criticize Bill Kristol. he was not personally involved in spending scandals. He was pushed out by establishment for his gaffes like saying Afghanistan was Obama´s choosing- in other words the truth.

Shocked that anyone would say they are pleased with Priebus!
Debbie washerwoman Shultz was "out there" 24/7 while many Republicans said Reince who?
He agreed to debates hosted by only liberals and Candy Crawley blindsided Romney by ganging up with Obama in the big lie about terrorism.
Either we get a chairman with backbone or I register Independent.

I almost don´t care who it is, but if they don´t get an aggressive top to bottom campaign going today to establish a legal and muscled oversight of the election process, it won´t matter what they do. To allow a few crucial counties to commit blatant voting ´irregularities´ is simply incompetent. You are organized if you have to scramble to get your poll watchers back on duty in every polling place in Philadelphia. You don´t have it together if you accept voting machines that can´t be monitored and are owned by a company controlled by Soros. You aren´t playing in the same league if you let the other side control the moderators and style of the debates. Finally, get some kind of combative truth squads to fight the media. ´Check the transcript, Cindy,´ are you kidding me? DON´T give them the media, academia, entertainment, everything and then base your appeal on the fact that at least you aren´t a communist.

Do you really think that Priebus was a good face for the Republicans? I thought he was terrible. In fact I don´t think JC Watts would be any worse. Priebus has poor speaking abilities and was awful on tv.

I fear the GOP is lost. Too many progressives infiltrated the ranks... the message is totally destroyed, redefined by the Obozo machine as a rich folks party.

I´m ready for a 3rd party. The Patriots Party... with a clear no nonsense platform based on the constitution. period.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

On April 7 a short video of the 60-year-old priest, from Oldcastle, County Meath, singing at a recent wedding ceremony went live. In just 11 days the touching video has racked up close to 30 million hits on YouTube and his fame now reaches to every corner of the earth.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

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

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

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

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
