Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham debate
how Romney lost the election

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:sparky86, 11/7/2012 12:49:08 PM

The shock of last night’s electoral outcome in the presidential race is setting in for some conservatives. But just how it was lost seems to be up for the debate. On Laura Ingraham’s Wednesday radio show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter and Ingraham debated who is to blame. Coulter, author of “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama,” was less willing to fault the candidate Mitt Romney, while Ingraham put the loss mostly on the shoulders of those running the Romney campaign. COULTER: I think Romney ran just on his own force of will, a magnificent campaign.

Comments:
This is an instructive discussion on what went wrong --- whether it was a tactical or strategic shortcoming, or was it ideological in that the country has given up on conservative government.

Romney didn't lose the election, the American people did. They just don't know it yet.

THANK YOU MITT ROMNEY FOR TRYING TO SAVE OUR COUNTRY. Thank you Ann and all your family for trying so hard. We TRULY appreciate all your efforts. You are a wonderful family and if half of this country can't see that, then so be it. It is THEIR LOSS. G-d's blessings eternally to you all.

What the nattering nabobs of negativity don't understand is MONEY(read unions) BOUGHT THIS ELECTION, imho, pure and simple.

In complete agreement with Coulter's analysis. Romney was as good a candidate as you can get, but this isn't America anymore and it isn't coming back.

Ann is right, as is #1. Mitt wasn't the problem. I'd be willing to bet that he exceeded a lot of our early expectations. We misread the American electorate. It's much further gone than we thought.

Coulter and the rest of the GOP Establishment - and even Rush as I hear him - are blaming the electorate. No, no, no. It is the fault of the GOP campaign, not the electorate. They had the money, they had an army of Tea Partiers that they ignored, and they stuck to a prevent, economy-only, defense. The GOP lost because their in-house experts, not the public, are morons. They did nothing to counter the corrupt LSM. They did nothing to stop election fraud. They just played it safe. After all, they had this one "in the bag".

Morons.

Yes, there are the selfish among us, but they are not the majority. The problem is that too many decent citizens believed the Democrat/LSM/entertainment media lies. That happened because the GOP did not effectively employ the resources and issues it had at its disposal.

Time for Coulter, "Charlie Crist" Christie, Romney, Boehner, McConnell, Rove, Morris, and the rest of the apologists and conservative posers to go away. Time for Palin, West, Love, Cain, Gingrich, Hannity, and others including old-style Dems like Caddell and Shoen to start leading. We need a new political party.

Yes, Mitt was the problem. As Dukakis learned, elections aren't about "competence," they're about ideology. Running as a fixer-type was a poor decision, particularly when the economy made noises that could be spun as a recovery.

He should have made it more about ideology, what kind of country we want to be, etc. Did you hear anything about ObamaCare in the last month or two? The EPA? Specific examples of regulations killing jobs instead of vague platitudes?

Romney did not run a good compaign. He didn't respond to the negatives early on and they feastured. He played not to lose instead of trying to win and he lost. Got to be someone who can articulate the concepts. Frustratingly, never had Ryan out doing that.

And the Repulican Party with all of their unspent money. just unbelievable.

Chris Christie is beyond comtempt. No excuse for his behavior.

Mitt was perfect for 1965 America. He's clearly too good for today's America.

He's too good for women who think abortion and birth control are our most pressing issue. He's too good for gays insisting they need more rights than everyone else.
He's too good for every 'gimmedat' voter, and person who voted skin color. He's too good for illegal occupants clogging up our emergency wards. And he is clearly too good for white guilt fools and Occupy dirtbags anarchists.

Too bad we have to share the same country with such people. And I'm ready to hear any ideas about splitting away from them.

I understand the temptation to blame the loser for losing, but when you look at what Romney was up against, it's amazing how well he did. Romney went through a bruising primary, endured a multimillion dollar character assassination campaign, faced a press corps that not only opposed him but covered for his opponent, and on top of all that got the momentum blown out of his sails by "Sandy" -- yet in spite of all that, he still came very close to winning. I think he deserves a little more credit and a lot more appreciation for a hard fought campaign.

Of course Ann will say that. She told us Romney was the only person who could win. Either she was wrong or there's some "other factor".

Personally, and many of you know this, I never liked Romney. There were so many more actual conservatives who could have given Obama a run for his money, who would have energized the tea party and who would have called a spade a spade. I'm shocked that Romney used a scorched earth campaign to get the nominaion and then went soft against Obama.

Aren't there any Pubbies who have a set of stones who don't play dead in a general election?

Yes, 8, exactly. Which is why all those you mentioned need to experience the consequences of their actions...

I remember the 70's and 80's. I had a 13% mortgage. THIRTEEN PER CENT. CD's were 18% BUT had NO purchasing power. Makes you not want to go back there again BUT WE ARE HEADED RIGHT THERE. A very vicious cycle.

I say it's the voters fault. It is OUR RESPONSIBILTY to get and vote, NO ONE should have to inspire us to, beg us to, or bribe us to we should vote as our civic duty, the results lie on our collective heads. We the voters are to blame for being lazy and irreponsible in not voting. American citizens should hang their heads in shame at OUR voting records!!!!! no excuses and quit blaming everyone else. we the citizens are to blame!!!

The stupid Republican party lost this election. Did they point out how lowering taxes bring in more revenue? No! Did they show how on January 3rd, 2007 the Democrat party took over the government? No! Did they point out that the Democrats, with Chris Dodd, and Barney Frank, in the lead, ruined the housing market and thus the total economy? No!

If Ann had great ideas to get her guy into the White House, she should have said so. I'm sure there was a dedicated line in to her office.

I don't know what to do with the way I feel today. I listened to two radio programs: Rush made me more upset. Beck has a plan.

I couldn't listen to Laura Ingraham for long as she was so negative this morning. I turned the radio off and it will stay that way today. Another article I read today referred to why Romney lost and the author pointed directly to the biased media. How does anyone win an election fighting a corrupt party and a corrupt media? That's the major problem in this country, the media. Wait til 2016, the Rep. candidate will be torn to shreds before he/she ever gets to a primary.

My observation, aside from the previously expressed tipping point being reached, is that the Republicans have not yet learned what the Democrats now clearly understand...you have to nominate a charismatic leader. It's not enough to get the last geezer standing (Dole, McCain) or the least worst nice competent guy that doesn't offend too many (Romney). You need a charismatic leader that people connect with and believe will be "the strong horse". Women in particular instinctively gravitate to that type of candidate, and no amount of bad news or scandals seem to shake them away from such candidates.

Repeat after me...learn it...love it...practice it, RNC...CHARISMATIC LEADER.

Agree with #7 - and additionally:
- I'm afraid this was the last chance that the R's had of winning a presidential election. Look at the demographics. We've got a bunch of liberal, single-parent kids coming of age that are used to sucking at the gov't teet.
- Our country is NOT getting better. Just look at the generational changes. And we have denied immigration to productive people and opened the door for the 3rd world miscreants. This is not the same country we were raised in.
- I am TIRED of the R's bending over backward to "fight fair" and not hurt feelings. We are in a street fight and they want to use some effeminate fighting style.
- Watch the emergence of a "ruling royalty". They have already voted themselves "special" privileges. Here come lots more!
- This is not our country any longer. I hate anyone who voted for the Øtard.
- Until the Catholic Church gets unified on certain concepts (e.g., vote for a murderer, you are a murderer), I'm gone. I don't need wood and stones to define my faith.
- I'm not paying my taxes to support the Øtard and his cronies. Read into that what you will.
- In all seriousness, do people have some good ideas on alternative places to live? I'm partial to St. Thomas Island.

I have a couple of hundred more thoughts but will can them.

Why are wasting time debating why Romney lost the election? Why aren't we instead starting impeachment proceedings? GLenn Beck created the Blaze because he wouldn't be muzzled by Zero. The rest of the media and Congress are culpible for allowing this traitor to remain in office. The FBI has said that if Zero had to have a basic security clearance at any classification level in any secure federal facility, they couldn't give him one because he can't meet the minimum requirements. So how can he be POTUS? Think how easy it would be for a foreign power to insert a real Manchurian Candidate in the most powerful position in the world when the POTUS doesn't have to have a security clearance. The Russian and Chinese intellince agencies must be laughing themselves silly if it weren't for the fact that they're too busy making plans to overthrow the US.

#16 - it is funny how Beck's plans all end up being about HIM.

We have obviously reached the point of there being more takers than makers. This was Barry's plan all along and it happened alot faster than I thought it would. I think we have to fall over that fiscal cliff and turn in to Greece before any of them might consider voting for a Republican.

Romney was not my first choice, but I don't think anyone else could have done as well as he did. Part of the problem was that his solutions were not explained on a personal level - how a tax cut for a rich person might get an unemployed person a job, how higher energy prices affect the entire economy, etc..

I am scared for our future, be it Obamacare, the fiscal cliff, energy prices/fracking, the general dependency - all of it will change America irreparably.

I'll side with Ann in this discussion. Romney is a good man, ran a good campaign, and would have made a fine President. He is so superior to Obama in so many ways, it's ridiculous.

I'm really not sure how the Republicans can overcome demographic issues like minority voting patterns, ever greater numbers of recipients of welfare and entitlements, and single women who are stuck on abortion.

Beating an incumbent is not easy, and that single woman Sandy the hurricane didn't help either.

Don't over-react and trash the nominee.

Ingraham is a bitter woman and she only recently toned down her constant harping against Romney.
Coulter is right , Romney ran a terrific campaign ,
I can't see a Santorum
or a Cain or Bachmann getting as far as Romney did.
Romney also had to deal with the unrelenting beat down
from the talkers on the right
in addition to a long and bruising primary.
Ingraham's anti Romney campaign , while offensive and unhelpful ,
didn't affect the outcome .
The sobering reality is that the electorate
has changed and not for the better .
Robert Stacy McCain at the AmSpec described it this way-
" The cretins and dimwits have become an effective governing majority, .."
The virulent and corrupt MSM is stronger than ever.
Conservative talk radio took a beating last night.
Conservatism took a beating last night.
The bigger story is not that Romney
lost the election , in fact , Ronald Reagan could not have won with this new electorate.
The bigger story is that the America we used to know ,
is gone.

This was not Romney's fault or Obama's. Neither of them are a factor and are unimportant. This was a referandum on the american people, and they failed miserably. They will most certainly suffer the consequences of their folly and greed when the money runs out, as it most assuredly will no matter what anyone does. Wishing the cliff were not there will not make it go away. Reality will not be mocked.

The reason that Romney lost is a no brainer.
The country has turned the corner to an entitlement country with over 50% of its citizens collecting entitlements and Obama is the share the wealth entitler-in-chief.

When you have more takers than workers you are doomed. RR would lose today. Even when the money runs out, the Govt will just print more. I fully expect American women will now stop shaving their arm pits.

I am done with Ann Coulter. It doesn't matter who wins--she just keeps on enriching herself. Her twitter page says she lives in LA/NYC. That says it all to me. She was and is dead wrong about Christie and, while I don't fault her for supporting Romney, who was the best of the poor alternatives, she failed to make the case for him. I guess she liked him because he had two Harvard degrees. She is just a flamethrower and really, an embarrassment to conservatives and certainly, to Christians (which she claims to be).

15% said Sandy was the most important thing when they voted. It was Coulter's boy Christie that handed that to Obama.

Also given the lower turnout that McCain I suspect the closet anti-Mormon "Christians" stayed at home as they have a tendancy to do when they don't get everything their way.

I agree with #12. We need Republicans who can fight against Democrats, not just their fellow Republicans. Everyone knows the media is almost entirely hard left so it's time to act that way. Be ready for the trick questions and blow those idiots out of the water - the electorate would stand up and cheer to see those pompous blowhards get taken down a peg. Chamberlain and the rest of the world learned the hard way what appeasement with a determined enemy gets you. Why oh why can't Republicans learn?

What #26 said. I agree with Ann Coulter..Stopped listening to Laura Ingraham months ago. She was a little late to the party in supporting Mitt Romney, who IMHO, would have been a GREAT President, and I can see by some comments today, a lot of other so-called "conservatives" were dragged kicking and screaming to vote for Mitt, if they actually did. I guess the loss of the Presidential election gives them some thoughts of "I told you so"...Whatever gets them through the night....During the next four years, obama himself, will prove HE told you so. Looks like the slings and arrows from the usual Mitt Romney haters is not going to go away. Disappointing, , but totally not unexpected.

#33 - In all due respect, maybe we did "tell you so". I held my nose to vote for Mitt (and my vote didn't matter because I'm in Texas). I was told by Coulter and so many others that Mitt was the only one who could do it, even though I felt putting him up was a rotten idea.

So, yes, maybe we did tell you so. We're still screwed, but at least give us this moment of vindication.

@#21: Do you really think impeachment hearings will help? That would be the most sure fire way for the GOP to lose the House in 2014 - that is if they don`t lose it compromising with the dems beforehand. Obama is very popular and the MSM will cover his behind no matter what. We have become a one-party nation.

Next time the liberal media and the Republican elite tell us which candidate we need to support, we stand up to them and say no. This election we heard of groups like single moms, blacks, Hispanics and women. But we didn't even sense the TEA Party. Palin was zeroed out at the convention. Cain was just used for the endorsement then dumped. Coulter and others jumped on the Romney bandwagon. If it was the women, blacks and hispanics that helped Obama win, why weren't they included on the GOP team.

The current GOP elite has got to go. We need to be verbal on getting rid of the Coulters and Roves. Quit supporting these people and let Fox know.

#38, I asked someone last night "what happened to the Tea Party?" They were such an important part of the victory in 2010, and they seem to have evaporated.

I cannot get over the feeling that we are living with the results of a gimme culture and a stolen election. All that needs to be done is steal a few key state elections, because of the exaggerated importance of swing states under the Electoral College system.

Money, and fraud #2. Carefully laid in place well before election day. That was the real Obama &Co. ground game. And unless serious election reform is untaken state by state it will only expand. And what are the chances of reform under this administration!?
Is there a large segment of low-intelligence voters who were accurately represented by Obamaphone woman? Oh, hell yes!
But I don't believe for one minute they comprised a majority by themselves or even enough when added to skewed thinkers comprising the rest of the Dem/Left.

This election is about as authentic as the last one won by Saddam Hussein in 2002.
Remember CNN on the ground over there clucking away about how popular Hussein was? How great a victory it was?
It was mindboggling to watch them utter that kind of crap with straight faces, and never once challenge it -- not even back in Atlanta.

Ingraham is seriously dishonest in her arguments.

Agree with every word in #26. Laura Ingraham was taken out of our Las Vegas market a couple of years ago, so I don't have to listen to her negativity. Bought two of her books, stood in line to see her one time, but will not give her the time of day ever again. I keep wondering why she hasn't run for an office since she seems to have all the answers. Ann Coulter is right.

Not one Republican that I can think of could have won against Our Leader and the media. Too many greedy people wanting their freebies.

Mitt Romney is a class act, a decent, honest person. Too bad America doesn't seem to want that now.

Sorry everyone I heard the interview and I think Ingraham had the best take. I like them both and Ingraham likes Coulter and had her on the show so this is not war. Romney was a good person who doesn't deserve any of the slurs he got any more than Bush did but you gotta fight this stuff. The electorate is different and they both said so. Too many people are brainwashed. Many times I was screeming at the TV during debates hoping Mitt would answer the class warfare demagoguery with the facts about the short time it would pay for the govt spending at the present rate if all the "rich" were cleaned out and left penniless. This could only be done once and there would be no private sector and nothing but Obama picking loosers. Capitalism is slimed but Romneys record of achievement at Bain capitol shines compared to Obamas record squandering stimulus money. He just said " I can get the economy going, I know how" but he could have and should have debunked the class warfare pandering which was the core of Obama's campaign at every turn. A few history lessons on Communism and the failure it always produces were needed. The electorate does not know these things. I liked the ad produced privatly by the hungarian immigrant reminding all the people that the handouts will innevitably end when the nation collapses. Obama left the idiots thinking this can go on forever and the dependent takers vote for that. For them government is life or death.

Romney could have run a better campaign, the media is biased against the Right, the nation is full of takers, elementar, junior high, high schools and colleges and universities are the breeding grounds of liberals, and the Democrats cheated the Hell out of the election.

I think we all agree about the above. Now, what the He11 are we going to do about it?

Its always been, those that can, do, and those that can´t teach. Well, the teachers are teaching Johnny and Jane that its OK to bleed the doers dry. We need doers, maybe after retirement, to become teachers; to inspire Johnny and Jane to become doers instead of takers.

We need to infiltrate the media; it might take years to get to a secure enough position to criticize liberal policies, but it can be done.

In the meantime, we should be able to start a conservative newspaper that doesn´t cost a mint in subscription fees. The current newspapers are going broke because they aren´t popular with the consumers.

Cheating is investigated at the county level. We need people to run for office at the county level so we can: 1) stop the cheating, and 2) investigate cheating. It would also be good to win Secretary of State positions.

CA is now essentially a one party state, so any candidate would have to change parties to Democrat, then run as a moderate. Same for any other one party state.

Finally, pass and enforce voter ID laws. They tend to reduce cheating, more than 100 % of registered voter turnouts, and dead people voting.

In other words, we need to start at the grass roots and work our way up.

On “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer criticized President Barack Obama for his foreign policy but downplayed the effects of Obama’s interview with Zach Galifianakis in a Funny or Die video on Russian President Vladimir Putin of Obama. “I think it’s a kind of arrogance,” Krauthammer said. “He thinks he has a good foreign policy. I think he is semi-delusional about the results of these five years. There is not a spot in the world you -- can go from Syria to Libya to Iran to China, to Russia to Ukraine

A failure to properly supervise a Department of Veteran’s Affairs employee led him to use VA resources for sexting, misuse official time, and inappropriately spend thousands of dollars in travel funds, according to a recent report. In a redacted report — first highlighted by the Military Times — the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General reveals a plethora of cringe-worthy offenses perpetrated by an unnamed VA employee. Despite the employee’s bad behavior, his supervisors allowed him to continue his unauthorized activities and even promoted him.

In 2011, the Department of Justice raided Gibson Guitar facilities in Memphis and Nashville, alleging a violation of the so-called Lacey Act, a law that bans the importation of certain kinds of wildlife, plants and wood. At the time of the raid, Gibson Guitars CEO Henry Juszkiewicz told Hugh Hewitt on his radio show that the feds confiscated tonewood imported from India for the guitar Gibson manufacturers which would result in a cost of $2 to $3 million for his company. At a great expense in legal fees and time, Juszkiewicz fought the federal government tooth and nail.

The bungled rollout of President Obama’s signature health care law might have kept the president away from Gettysburg, but it has not kept him off the links or away from the fundraising circuit. Since the launch of the HealthCare.gov on October 1, Obama has gone golfing five times and attended ten fundraisers — with five more scheduled for the beginning of this week — while Obamacare’s favorability has hit all time lows.

Left-leaning Daily Beat columnist Kirsten Powers, who recently revealed how she lost her health coverage under Obamacare, slammed the Obama administration’s efforts to deal with the metastasizing Affordable Care Act Tuesday night. On Tuesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, the “All-Star Panel” weighed in on the administration’s responses to the disastrous Obamacare rollout. Washington Post columnist George Will blamed the widening crisis on President Barack Obama’s lack of managerial experience. “Well, everyone is talking about extraordinarily complicated act as though it’s a tinker toy,” Will explained. “If you don’t like this part, just plug in another part.

Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer slammed Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’s congressional testimony as “pathetic” in an interview set to air on Wednesday’s Hugh Hewitt radio show. The author of “Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics” said Sebelius’ performance before the House Energy and Commerce Committee left much to be desired, even if viewers took into account there wasn’t much she could have said. “To her credit — and it was a pathetic, horrible, mortifying performance. She wasn’t holding a lot of cards,” Krauthammer said.

Williams accused Will and his other co-panelists on this weekend’s “Fox News Sunday” during the show’s online-only “Panel Plus” segment of “schadenfreude” in voicing their reactions to the failure the HealthCare.gov launch. “[Y]ou know, I just think there is a lot of schadenfreude on the panel this morning,” Williams said. “ And people, ‘Oh yeah, you know, isn’t it terrible —

Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume told Hugh Hewitt Tuesday that the President Barack Obama and other Democrats’ partisan rhetoric is unprecedented. “There’s no doubt about that, and you know, I’ve never seen, actually, partisan attacks, where you simply are attacking the other party outright by name, calling the other party out, is something a little unusual,” Hume said. “I’m accustomed to seeing, I mean, it’s done in one form or another, and it has been for years.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement.

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

5 Reasons Why Republicans

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December
