Sheldon Adelson kept Newt Gingrich alive during the the 2012 race for president. Now Jeb Bush wants some of that sweet sweet casino money. Bush is joining Chris Christie (shock), Scott Walker, and John Kasich at an event in the City of Slots. Each potential candidate is looking for a payday.
Time to go home. Voter fraud, what does it matter?
I don’t think this woman should spend 5 years in federal prison for her crime, but it irks me that such fraud appears to be so widespread in so many areas and it is just accepted. The party machines are protected by politicians and media alike.
Santorum thinks he can somehow cobble together a coalition of evangelicals and crony capitalists to take the White House. This is a man who loathes small government and believes that government should reflect a certain set of “moral” values. Specifically his.
Put aside the hyperbole in bold type in this video. Put aside the dramatic music. What it offers is a pretty accurate account of how the media handled Ron Paul in the 2012 election. It was nasty, it was probably coordinated, and the media effectively thwarted a campaign which threatened to derail the Romney campaign and I think it is fair to say ultimately the Obama campaign.
It’s perfectly reasonable to expect the White House to stonewall the Benghazi investigation. There are fears that whatever happened that night might reflect poorly on the president, and perhaps even more importantly now, on Hillary Clinton who wants to be president. It makes sense that a White House which plays hardball all the time, plays hardball with reporters.
It doesn’t make it right however. Some reporters, many who have long cheered this president are starting to speak out, softly.
Republicans have for quite a long time allowed the Democrats to define them as the “against” party. Grumpy old white men against stylish, urban, open minded professionals. Rich people against everyone else. Red against blue. (And red is not a conservative color. “Better dead than red,” did not mean better dead than Republican. A “red state” is North Korea not Texas.)
The GOP has been one step behind, countering the Dem zig and zag. A party on its heals. This is a way to lose.
Chrysler wrote a letter during the fall presidential election denying plans to make jeeps in China. The Romney ad that claimed as much was then branded a lie.
As usual Peter Schweizer is right. Last year was a good year for crony capitalists.
Say what you will about the Breitbart suite of online media. Are they over the top sometimes? Absolutely. But do they also do great reporting and interesting and valuable news? Without doubt. The attached article is an example of this.
