Paul Ryan Endorses Mitt Romney

Paul Ryan Endorses Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney has been on top of gaining endorsements ahead of the State Primaries. This time is is Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) appeared on Fox and Friends Friday morning, announcing his endorsement for Mitt Romney for president. The congressman said he believes the former Massachusetts governor has the best chance of beating the current president in a fall campaign. “The more we drag it out, […]

Report: Paul Ryan to endorse Romney soon

Report: Paul Ryan to endorse Romney soon

How soon is unclear, but the Wisconsin primary’s on Tuesday so it has to come before then. Native Wisconsinite and friend of Ryanworld Stephen Hayes points to a radio interview he’s doing with local star Charlie Sykes at 8:35 tomorrow. It’ll probably be then. Romney’s comfortably ahead in Wisconsin so he doesn’t need Ryan for that. As Matt Lewis says, he’s thinking big picture: What is more, coming on the […]

A change in tone from Santorum?

A change in tone from Santorum?

As we move through the halftime break in the Republican nomination process, all of the campaigns have an opportunity to retool their strategies, or even rethink their possibilities.  The New York Times reports that Rick Santorum has tweaked his approach on the stump, moving away from hard attacks on Mitt Romney and focusing more on Barack Obama: Rick Santorum has eased up on using phrases like “worst Republican in the country” when tearing […]

Video: Obama message to Planned Parenthood supporters oddly silent about key Planned Parenthood service

Via the boss emeritus’s new Twitter aggregator Twitchy. I hate to say it but after watching this I think there might be something to the DNC’s “war on women” message. It’s inexplicable that the GOP wants to yank federal funding for this excellent health organization that provides cancer screenings and contraception and apparently nothing else. Can anyone blame the left for having a screeching, frothing-at-the-mouth fit whenever a conservative suggests […]

George H. W. Bush to formally endorse Romney tomorrow

George H. W. Bush to formally endorse Romney tomorrow

When I first read this Associated Press report, the first thought that came to mind was, “Didn’t former President George H. W. Bush already endorse Mitt Romney?”  Actually, no, at least not formally, but that’s a fine distinction.  By tomorrow, that distinction will be erased: Former President George H.W. Bush plans to endorse Mitt Romney, further urging the Republican Party to coalesce around the former Massachusetts governor’s presidential campaign. Romney spokeswoman Gail Gitcho says the two will meet […]

Breaking: Gingrich replaces campaign manager, lays off one-third of staff — to focus on the convention

Breaking: Gingrich replaces campaign manager, lays off one-third of staff — to focus on the convention

Clearly it’s his campaign manager and the staff who are the problem. Alternate headline: “Gingrich finally approaching the fifth stage of grief.” It’s largely a strategy of necessity: The former House Speaker is a distant third in delegates, behind Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum. His campaign-finance report for February, released last week, showed more debt ($1.55 million) than cash on hand ($1.54 million). DeSantis said the former Speaker will continue […]
