The Obama campaign, hailed in 2008 for its unparalleled coherence and fundraising strategies, is enduring a range of political feuds and personal disagreements that has left it in severe disorder. Differences in ideology, along with an array of personal disputes, have overshadowed the efficacy of Obama’s 2008 campaign, according to a number of current and former Obama advisers.
With political ads defending and bashing various proposals about how to “fix” Medicare reaching a crescendo, fact-checkers are having a field day in sorting through who’s right and who’s wrong. Claims by Democrats that Paul Ryan’s reform bill would “end Medicare as we know it” was awarded the “lie of the year” by Politifact, while Factcheck.org named it one of the “Whoppers of 2011.” Even the liberal Washington Post gave the canard its highest — or lowest — rating of “four Pinnochios.”
The Romney-Ryan campaign moved quickly Sunday to distance the presumptive Republican ticket from a comment by Rep. Todd Akin, the Republican U.S. Senate candidate in Missouri, who said that when pregnancy results from rape, the law should punish the rapist and not the unborn child.
Monday August 20, 1787 was a very pivotal day in the Constitutional Convention and we're still arguing over many of the same topics.
A video presentation produced by our partner Liberty News Network takes a hard look at the budget numbers put out by both President Barack Obama and former Governor Mitt Romney. The contrast between the two major-party presidential candidates on fiscal issues may not be as great as you think.
Nearly 150,000 illegal-alien criminals are in American jails or on American streets, a U.S. congressman says. And those roaming American cities and towns are there thanks to a U.S. Supreme Court decision that forbids the government from indefinitely incarcerating the criminals if the United States cannot deport them after their sentences are over.
Girls as young as 15 could be sterilized at no cost and without their parents' consent under ObamaCare and Oregon state law, sparking concerns about mass sterilization and population control.
Millions of illegal aliens queued up across the country on Wednesday to get papers to stay in the country.
The illegals, almost all of them from either Mexico or other Hispanic nations, got into line to apply for President Obama’s “youth amnesty.” That policy, announced in June, essentially established the DREAM Act as federal law, even though the act failed in the Senate in December 2010.
Although Obama set out a list of DREAM-like criteria for “young” illegals, the day before the amnesty began the administration began loosening the rules so that they applied to just about any young and illegal immigrant.
The far-left Southern Poverty Law Center, tax-funded abortion behemoth Planned Parenthood, and even the federal government are under fire for wild rhetoric and vicious hate-mongering that many conservatives and even some establishment analysts believe may have contributed to the August 15 shooting in Washington, D.C., by deranged homosexual activist Floyd Corkins. Some experts expect to see more similar violence in the future if the hostile climate is not addressed.
On August 15, the alleged would-be mass murderer walked into the lobby of the conservative-leaning Family Research Council, apparently intending to slaughter innocent people who simply disagreed with his views on homosexuality. Before shooting a security guard and being subdued, police say Corkins, who was carrying extra ammunition and 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches, told him something along the lines of "I don't like your politics."
The Libertarian Party in Washington State petitioned Wednesday to have Mitt Romney’s name removed from November’s ballot. The lawsuit claims the GOP is no longer significant enough to qualify under state law as a major party.
