3 Electable Tea Party Hotties
by Katie Kieffer
May 14, 2012

Some like it hot. Some like it cold. And the Tea Party likes it red-hot, as in, red states. Three energetic Tea Party candidates are heating up to beat RINOs and help return the U.S. Senate to a true conservative majority.

Rhinoceros horn is popular in Asia for its purported healing powers. Asian demand sends poachers to Africa to hunt the endangered animal. Last November, one Hong Kong poacher surrendered $2 million of illegal rhino horn to authorities. In the GOP, however, RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) are losing popularity. The RINO’s “horn” is compromise and Americans are tired of compromises like Obamacare. Americans want politicians who will just say “no” to socialism.

The GOP needs to gain four seats this fall in order to take majority control of the U.S. Senate. To win these seats, I think the GOP must run authentic Tea Party conservatives. Leave the big-spending, EPA-kissing RINOs behind; they are unelectable. Here are three hot Tea Party Senate candidates that I believe can paint the political map red in November:

  1. Greg Sowards, The Reaganesque Businessman
  2. Kurt Bills, The Economics Teacher 
  3. Richard Mourdock, The Tea Party Favorite
These three hot Tea Party leaders offer a fresh brand of leadership with the potential to end Washington stalemate. They are businessmen, not career politicians. And, because they preach liberty louder than partisanship, I think Democratic congresspeople will be more likely to work with them. For, these leaders do not hold out the RINO olive branch of socialist compromise. Rather, they extend the unifying olive branch of constitutional freedom.

Hopefully the establishment GOP will support Tea Party businessmen like Sowards, Bills and Mourdock who can win against Democrats in the fall instead of RINOs who will fall on their horns.

Mitt Romney, a Question of Character
with Martin Bashir
May 13, 2012

>> the problem isn't so much the story itself, bad as it appears to be. the problem is that it feeds into a large he portrait of romney romney , the political bully. this is what mitt's former classmate, philip maxwell said about participating and now call a haunting memory. the boy was pinned down by the state champion wrestler, the captain of thefootball team . this was bullying supreme. other people did the real work but maxwell said it was romney who wielded the shears. match that with how newt gingrichdescribes the onslaught from romney 's super pac buddies just after gingrich's primary win in south carolina .

>> he has a basic policy of carpet bombing his opponent. he doesn't try to build up Mitt Romney . he just tries to tear down whoever he's running against. 
>> indeed it seem romney has relied on super friends on pinning his enemies down. the story has carried an additional resonance, given the president's evolution and endorse many. romney has tried to take the air out of this momentous event, trying to characterize it as a flip-flop.

>> we don't change positions to try to win states or certain sub groups of americans. you have the positions you have.
>> so when asked, will i preserve and protect a woman's right to choose. he make an unequivocal answer, yes.
>> i believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country. i believe cynic row v. wade has been the law for 20 yearsering with should sustain and support it.
>> mr. romney , you may want to rethink that flip-flop line of attack.

Recall Election Could Sway Pension Policy
May 14, 2012

Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin may not have done every single thing right in his 16 months in office, but he did one thing right, powerfully right.

He stood up to public employee unions turning many states and localities into places with little chance for good days ahead, and for that reason he is facing a recall election. It is also for that reason he should win.

This tipping-point contest comes up June 5 and pits him against the Democratic mayor of Milwaukee, Tom Barrett. It's huge for this nation because it will announce one of two things:

If Walker wins, the outcome will say to officials in other states that they, too, can possibly continue the fight for fiscal sanity and get away with it.

The 'Bribe' to Silence Wright
by Edward Klein
May 12, 2012

“Who sent the e-mail?” I asked Wright.

“It was from one of Barack’s closest friends.”

“He offered you money?”

“Not directly,” Wright said. “He sent the offer to one of the members of the church, who sent it to me.”

“How much money did he offer you?”

“One hundred and fifty thousand dollars,” Wright said.

“Did Obama himself ever make an effort to see you?”

“Yes,” Wright said. “Barack said he wanted to meet me in secret, in a secure place. And I said, ‘You’re used to coming to my home, you’ve been here countless times, so what’s wrong with coming to my home?’ So we met in the living room of the parsonage of Trinity United Church of Christ, at South Pleasant Avenue right off 95th Street, just Barack and me. I don’t know if he had a wire on him. His security was outside somewhere.

“And one of the first things Barack said was, ‘I really wish you wouldn’t do any more public speaking until after the November election.’ He knew I had some speaking engagements lined up, and he said, ‘I wish you wouldn’t speak. It’s gonna hurt the campaign if you do that.’

“And what did you say?” I asked. “I said, ‘I don’t see it that way. And anyway, how am I supposed to support my family?’ And he said, ‘Well, I wish you wouldn’t speak in public. The press is gonna eat you alive.’

“Barack said, ‘I’m sorry you don’t see it the way I do. Do you know what your problem is?’ And I said, ‘No, what’s my problem?’ And he said, ‘You have to tell the truth.’ I said, ‘That’s a good problem to have. That’s a good problem for all preachers to have. That’s why I could never be a politician.’

“And he said, ‘It’s going to get worse if you go out there and speak. It’s really going to get worse.’

“And he was so right.”
