VIDEO: COULTER PREDICTING ROMNEY LOSS

One of the most surprising developments of this primary season is Ann Coulter’s support for Mitt Romney. She is, of course, an inveterate RINO basher, so her support of the King of the RINOs is perplexing to say the least, particularly after this comment she made at last year’s CPAC convention: If we don’t run [...]

AUDIO: MARK LEVIN EXPANDS ON SANTORUM’S INDICTMENT OF ROMNEYCARE

Levin discusses the exchange between Santorum and Romney on which I based yesterday’s American Spectator column. He points out, among other things, that Romney still defends the mandate he enacted in Massachusetts. The problem here is not that it was unconstitutional, as is the ObamaCare mandate (states have the right to enact such laws whereas Congress does not), but that it was a monumental [...]

ROMNEY EXPLAINS WHY HE CAN’T BEAT OBAMA

My column in today’s American Spectator discusses Mitt Romney’s lack of genuine convictions, and how Rick Santorum exposed that fatal flaw in last Thursday’s Republican debate:  The most telling moment of the debate was [Romney's] response to Rick Santorum’s eloquent explanation of ObamaCare’s importance to the GOP’s strategy in the general election and why giving Romney the nomination [...]

NO DAYLIGHT BETWEEN ROMNEY & OBAMA ON HEALTH CARE

Watch this video and tell me that Romney has any prayer of winning a debate with Obama on health care reform. The two might as well be twins. This means that giving Romney the GOP presidential nomination is, as Rick Santorum pointed out in last Thursday’s debate, tantamount to surrendering on ObamaCare: [ht Hot Air]

DEBATE VIDEO: SANTORUM HAMMERS ROMNEY ON MASSACHUSETTS MANDATE

Rick Santorum explains ObamaCare’s importance to the GOP’s strategy in the general election and why Romney can’t effectively make the case for repeal. Santorum pointed out that RomneyCare provided the blueprint for Obama’s plan and addeed: Folks, we can’t give this issue away in this election. It is about fundamental freedom. Giving the GOP presidential nomination to Romney will indeed [...]

ROMNEY ADVISOR SAYS NOT TO EXPECT FULL REPEAL OF OBAMACARE

Yep. You read that right. Norm Coleman, an important advisor to Mitt Romney, said the following on a talking heads gasfest a couple of days ago: You will not repeal the act in its entirety, but you will see major changes, particularly if there is a Republican president … You can’t whole-cloth throw it out. [...]

SOTU: WHITHER OBAMACARE?

Obamacare’s advocates claim the law is unpopular because the public just doesn’t get it. So, why didn’t Obama use his SOTU address to help us understand? Because he and his minions know that, in reality, the problem is that Americans understand it all too well. Here’s a clip of HHS Secretary Sebelius being asked why [...]

ARE YOU BETTER OFF THAN YOU WERE FOUR TRILLION DOLLARS AGO?

Just asking … Maybe it’s time for a real change.

DEBATE VIDEO: SANTORUM CALLS OBAMACARE THE BIGGEST ISSUE OF THE ELECTION

Santorum used ObamaCare to define himself as the only genuine conservative in the race by describing the histories of Romney and Gingrich as fair weather conservatives who caved on health reform: The biggest issue we have to deal with in this election that’s crushing the economy, will crush it even further and crush freedom … [...]

THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING THE MSM

My column in today’s American Spectator discusses the shallowness that pervades contemporary journalism and how Newt Gingrich has exploited it to keep his campaign alive: Newt realized early on that much of the voter indignation that has manifested itself in the Tea Party movement is driven by media complicity with Obama in his ongoing effort [...]
