April 3, 2012 In Wisconsin, Maryland and the District of Columbia, polls show Mitt Romney with a wide lead. Yet Rick Santorum continues to campaign as relentlessly as ever.
April 3, 2012 Impressive wins Tuesday could help Mitt Romney further the growing sense in his party that resistance is futile, that he will be the nominee. It would also make his rivals' arguments for staying in the race, especially those of Rick Santorum, the last not-Romney to pose a threat, sound ever more forced and divorced from political reality.
March 29, 2012 On the same day that Santorum would be covering himself, figuratively, in Reagan's jelly beans, Romney was scheduled to announce his receipt of the endorsement of the pork-rind lover in chief, George H. W. Bush, the man who was Reagan's vice president and who became the 41st president.
March 28, 2012 The election to recall Wisconsin's Republican governor is a much bigger deal in the state than the Republican presidential primary even though the contest to name a challenger to President Obama occurs on Tuesday and the recall is in June.
March 28, 2012 The Supreme Court was in the third and final day of oral arguments on the health-care law... Newt Gingrich cut a third of his campaign staff as he focused on a convention strategy... New Florida laws have discouraged voter-registration.
March 28, 2012 The GOP presidential contender is mounting a "big-choice convention strategy" that banks on Mitt Romney not having enough delegates to be the nominee on the first ballot. Gingrich would then try to convince Republicans that he should be the nominee.
March 27, 2012 The Supreme Court moved to take on the heart of the debate over the new health-care law's constitutionality... President Obama used humor to downplay a candid remark about missile-defense that was caught on an open mic... The EPA was expected to issue new rules to limit greenhouse gases from new power plants.
March 26, 2012 In an interview with CBN News, Rick Santorum said he would be willing to consider being Mitt Romney's running mate if asked, despite all the scorn he heaps on the GOP frontrunner daily.
March 26, 2012 Supreme Court arguments began on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act... Obama told his Russian counterpart that he would have "more flexibility" on missile defense after his re-election... Santorum's decisive win Saturday in Louisiana's GOP primary did little to reset the race.
March 26, 2012 Though Rick Santorum won in Louisiana and shows no sign of giving up his battle with front runner Mitt Romney, there's a case to be made that Republican Party leaders want the nomination battle to be over sooner rather than later.
March 23, 2012 The trailer depicts a dystopian future where everything bad that can happen does, save for Hunger Games-like fights to the death between teens. Actually, that's an exaggeration. The future horrors in an Obama second term are all the common GOP bill of particulars against him: high gas prices and jobless rates, the loss of religious freedom, Iranian appeasement, in short the usual suspects.
March 23, 2012 President Obama made his first public comments Friday about the Trayvon Martin shooting, which opened him up to approval and suspicion in this racially and politically polarized nation.
