Santorum ignores shift
The Hill [DC], by A.B. Stoddard

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 4/13/2013 6:22:50 AM

Several 2016 presidential campaigns are already up and running — some more quietly than others — and Republicans hoping to be their party’s nominee are preparing for a primary that could potentially bear little resemblance to those of 2012 and 2008. As the party grapples with a shifting electorate, it is divided over differences on gay marriage, immigration reform, national security policy and even guns — gaps that could only widen by 2015, when campaigns will be in full swing. Potential candidates are busy searching for safe corners on these contentious issues and are either acknowledging the profound shifts,

Comments:
Rick Santorum is probably a nice man and I would probably like him in person. But, I would never be able to get past his lecture that married couples should not use contraception.

Aside from what any positions Santorum takes,he doesn´t have the personality to win anything.He could make a tape for insomniacs and be an overnight millionaire.

But anyway some school raised $18,000 to have him in as a guest speaker and was almost shut down by administrators because of his anti gay marriage position. he was only allowed to speak if the kids got a permission slip from the parents.Of course any hardcore anti american leftist wouldn´t need such slips. Now a minor can get an abortion pill without parental permission but that´s ok.

I was going to say, "Rick, take your sweater vest and go away." But you know what? Maybe it´s a great idea that he be the GOP candidate. Perhaps he´d get .01% of the vote against Hillary and those of you who insist on choosing a single issue, clean living contender would get an in-your-face major reality check. 2016 is hopeless anyway, so hey, go for it.

Mitt Romney started the negative attacks. He wanted them, and he needed them. And, tragically for us, he got them. Mitt Romney was never going to win on ideas or eloquence. To win, he needed to make every other candidate unacceptable. He needed to destroy every other potential nominee. So he did. Mitt Romney became our nominee because he had the most mud and the most money. What he didn´t have was a message. What he couldn´t do was win. Romney´s favorability poll numbers started falling when he began his negative ad campaigns--well before any of his rivals had mounted their counter-attacks--and they never recovered. He was too stupid to realize that, in destroying his rivals, he had destroyed himself. His devotees were too blind to see the truth. So we nominated a political dead man. All Obama had to do was bury him.

None of this has anything to do with how conservative our GOP nominee was. Mitt Romney became a "conservative" in order to convince the politically credulous to nominate him to lead us to defeat. He had almost no ability to articulate and defend conservative ideas before a hostile press and political audience. You want to win next time? Try nominating a conservative who truly knows what he´s talking about. Want to lose? Run a Romney.

This is the continuation of the liberal media attempting to structure the issues and pick our nominee.

Obama admin spending $17

Daily Caller, by Caroline May    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/21/2014 11:05:22 AM     Post Reply
In the final push before the end of open enrollment on March 31, the Obama administration has spent millions to promote Obamacare. From January to the end of March the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which is administering the president’s signature health-care law will have spent $52 million on paid media for Obamacare. Meaning, if all goes according to the most recent plan and the administration reaches its revised enrollment goal of six million, taxpayers will have spent nearly $9.00 per signup on advertising alone. With an average pay out of $17.3 million a month on advertising alone, past months have already

The environmental left is seeing Democrats the Keystone XL pipeline, and raising them natural-gas exports. The question of who folds on this issue will play big in this midterm election year. A split is growing in the Democratic Party, one that ought to rival the divisions on the right that the headlines trumpet. Greens are increasingly bitter about President Obama —annoyed that he´s dropped climate legislation, scaled back green subsidies, ignored fracking. They´ve channeled their frustration into the fight against Keystone, warning that they´ll turn their significant money and resources against Mr. Obama´s party if the president approves more "dirty oil."

For all of the nonchalant assurances that he is neither a “dictator” nor an “emperor,” Barack Obama is certainly trigger-happy with the power jokes. The president’s latest witticism was inspired by his much-debated appearance on Between Two Ferns, during which he traded carefully scripted barbs with actor Zach Galifianakis. “Zach actually was pretty nervous,” Obama explained to Ryan Seacrest in a postmortem interview. “His whole character is to go after the guest, and I think he was looking around and seeing all these Secret Service guys with guns and thinking, I wonder what happens here if I cross the line?

Eighteen months ago former Clinton Secretary of State Madeline Albright attacked Governor Romney’s warning that Russia is America’s number one geopolitical foe: “He is not up to date and that is a very dangerous aspect; that’s just an example of his 20th century approach to 21t century issues.” The idea: conflict with Russia was a relic of the cold war and that since the now infamous “reset,” identifying them as a threat and a problem was naive and silly. A Presidential candidate who looks back, rather than forward, was out of touch and dangerous. Today on MSNBC’s Morning Joe show,

Another senior minister in Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s cabinet sharply criticized American foreign policy Tuesday, anonymously joining the open attack by Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon. Speaking to journalists in the Knesset, the minister said the Americans’ handling of the crisis in Ukraine proved that Israel could no longer rely on the United States. He said it was clear to everyone that the US had never intended to take military action against the Russians. “The lesson of this crisis screams to the sky,” the minister said. “US foreign policy is collapsing all over the world.

Without facts on the missing airliner,

Let me go out on a limb: The Malaysian airliner did not get sucked into a black hole, vanish over the Indian Ocean equivalent of the Bermuda Triangle or crash-land on the spooky island from “Lost.” Those “theories” were actually discussed on CNN this week. Host Don Lemon dismissed them as “preposterous” before asking one of his assembled “expert” guests — there were six of them waiting expectantly in their boxes on the screen — whether, you know, such ideas really were so preposterous. At which point the nonstop coverage of this tragedy entered the Twilight Zone. The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines

Voting Rights and Proof of Citizenship

Liberals are expressing outrage today about the court ruling that a federal agency is required to help Kansas and Arizona ensure that those registering to vote are citizens. The case decided in a U.S. district court in Wichita revolved around the U.S. Election Assistance Commission’s decision to deny the requests from the two states that proof of citizenship be added to a national voter registration form when distributed in Kansas and Arizona. Judge Eric F. Melgren rightly ruled that the agency had no authority to tell the states their requests were invalid. He noted that the decision by the election

On February 22, popular protests led to the fall of the pro-Russian government of Viktor Yanukovych in Kiev. On February 27, in response to this setback, President Vladimir Putin sent forces into Crimea to seize it from Ukraine. On March 19, President Barack Obama delivered his response. He reassured Putin, “We are not going to be getting into a military excursion in Ukraine.” Obama added, “What we are going to do is mobilize all of our diplomatic resources to make sure that we’ve got a strong international coalition that sends a clear message.” The message is clear.

Democrats are hoping that growing support for medical and recreational marijuana can spur party turnout in this year´s midterms, especially in getting young voters to the polls. But despite early optimism that such efforts could be an easy fix to their turnout problems, upon closer review, there´s only a loose connection between the two. Voters in at least six states are expected to vote on marijuana initiatives in 2014. The deadlines for most ballot initiatives aren´t until the summer in many places, but signature-gathering requirements are generally cumbersome enough that others are unlikely to join at this stage.

Health-insurance executives are starting to warn of double- and even triple-digit premium hikes for health plans sold on the ObamaCare exchanges for 2015. But Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told Congress last week that any ObamaCare premium hikes would be modest. In fact, the Obama administration is scrambling to rewrite the law to make that happen. After close of business Friday, the administration proposed greater bailout protection for insurers who sell exchange plans. The new rule sweetens what the Affordable Care Act provided (at taxpayer expense, of course) to protect the companies from losses. It’s illegal, because no president has the

Echoes of Crimea Keep
Ukraine´s East Rumbling

ARTEMIVSK, Ukraine -- The disheveled men barricading the muddy lane leading into a military facility in this eastern Ukraine town say they are making a stand to defend the region´s Russian-speaking majority. In the nearby city of Donetsk, gangs of pro-Russian activists and Cossacks armed with sticks and bats have been storming one local government office after another, only to leave a short while later. It looks a lot like Crimea. But despite feeling or speaking Russian, many in these eastern regions still adhere strongly to their Ukrainian identity, so things could play out far differently.

Obama’s World of Make Believe

For anyone who has observed Barack Obama over the years, it’s obvious that a fundamental part of his self-identity involves seeing himself, and having others see him, as pragmatic rather than ideological, reality-based, driven by reason instead of bias. This has never actually been true. Mr. Obama is, in fact, unusually dogmatic, blind to counter-evidence, and mostly unable to adjust his views to the way things are. So when his worldview collides with reality, he often can’t adjust. He instead creates his own make believe world. We’ve seen it time and time again with the Affordable Care Act.

With New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stalled by the “Bridgegate” affair, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has become the establishment´s candidate and top pick to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, according to a new analysis of the race. “We now consider Bush the leader of the field if he decides to run,” said the influential “Crystal Ball” from the University of Virginia´s Center for Politics. “In recent months, we’ve noticed an unmistakable and widespread desire among some of the Republicans we talk to, particularly ones who would be classified as members of the establishment on and off Capitol Hill, for a third Bush nominee in less than three decades.

(Video) The Obama ladies are in the house — the house of China, that is. First lady Michelle Obama, her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother touched down Thursday in China for what’s being touted as a weeklong feel-good tourist event, amid increasing murmurs back home about U.S. taxpayers having to foot the bill. Mrs. Obama is supposed to use her visit for soft diplomacy only, and shy from the more controversial topics that plague U.S.-China relations, namely human rights and economics. No reporters accompanied the family on the trip. “The nature of her visit is really quite

“Obamacare” as shorthand for the Affordcable Care Act was first used mostly by critics of the law, but now everyone’s using the moniker and President Obama has long since embraced it. But apparently no one told Nancy Pelosi, because she’s still ticked off at how much people talk about “Obamacare” instead of the “Affordable Care Act.” In response to a reporter asking a question about Obamacare being a political winner or loser, Pelosi said, “By the way, it’s called the Affordable Care Act.

Secretary of State John Kerry called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday morning to protest insults the Israeli defense minister directed at the Obama administration this week, the State Department said. In a speech at Tel Aviv University on Monday, Moshe Ya’alon criticized President Obama for having a weak foreign policy, and said Israel could no longer rely on the United States to lead nuclear negotiations with Iran. “Secretary Kerry spoke with Prime Minister Netanyahu this morning.

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he thinks Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick “would make a great president or vice president.” Obama and Patrick, both Democrats, are friends and close political allies. The two men have campaigned for each other, with Patrick acting as a surrogate for Obama nationally during the 2012 presidential race. Patrick has said clearly that he intends to return to the private sector when his second term as governor is up at the end of the year and will not run for president in 2016. But he has not ruled out a run for office in the

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf.

Climate scientists at NASA say these early signs could be tied to global warming, and the consequences are troubling. 9NEWS talked to NASA scientist Dr. Compton Tucker at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.

First lady Michelle Obama will not take questions from reporters or give interviews during her tour of China that begins today, and members of the press corps who usually follows the first family everywhere have been banned from the trip. The resulting picture is one of an expensive, taxpayer-funded vacation for Mrs. Obama, her two daughters, and her mother – and not the official good-will journey the White House has promised. White House press officials won´t comment to MailOnline about whether the ban on media interviews applies equally to American journalists and Chinese reporters. ´How does this comport with the
