MICHELE BACHMANN, R-MINN., PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Pakistan has been the epicenter of dealing with terrorism. They are, as Governor Huntsman said, there are al-Qaeda training grounds there. There's also the Haqqani network that can be trained there as well. And they also are one of the most violent, unstable nations that there is. We have to recognize that 15 of the sites, nuclear sites are available or are potentially penetrable by jihadists. Six attempts have already been made on nuclear sites. This is more than an existential threat. We have to take this very seriously. The United States has to be engaged. It is [...]

It’s no fluke that Newt Gingrich is the front-runner in the Republican presidential primary race. Some in the media credit his surge in the polls to his not being Mitt Romney or say he’s picking up Herman Cain’s former supporters. It’s more than that. The former House speaker is well prepared for his turn in the spotlight. According to the latest CNN poll, Mr. Gingrich has the support of 24 percent of Republicans compared to 20 percent for the former Massachusetts governor. The former Godfather’s Pizza CEO is at 17 percent, and Texas Gov. Rick Perry is in fourth place with 11 percent. Broken down by issue, Mr. Gingrich was far ahead of the other candidates as most qualified to be commander in chief, most likely to keep the same position on important issues and tops in ability [...]

Economists are warning of dire consequences if US politicians fail to make progress this weekend in tense talks aimed at reducing America's massive deficit ahead of a Wednesday deadline. The bi-partisan congressional super-committee is charged with drawing up plans for a $1.2tn reduction in the nation's deficit by the middle of next week. Failure to do so will trigger an automatic "sequester" that will make cuts of that size to defence and social welfare programmes starting in 2013. But the two sides seem far from finding a solution after clashing over tax revenues. While Wednesday is the official deadline for the supercommittee to report back, it has until Monday to tell the Congressional Budget Office about the impact any plan they send to Congress will have on the budget. "Time is [...]
by Albert N. Milliron One year before the 2012 election, Congressional Job approval remains at all time lows. Gallup who tracks approval ratings for Congress show a graph that contains approval ratings for 2011. Had one gone back to 2009, following the Healthcare bill and the Stimulus package, approval ratings were at 13% as well despite the Former Speaker going on the Daily Show and declaring that the good ole days when she lead up the House, "our approval ratings were at 40%". We here at Politisite are still looking for that Gallup Poll. Truth is, no matter how she tries to spin it, She did not enjoy an approval rating of 40% after she became speaker. Factually, Congress had a bump shortly after President Obama took office. Once they began legislating, their poll ratings [...]
With Michele Bachmann, there are no policy flip-flops. There's no need to compromise on one of the issues that matters to you. She means what she says, and she says what she means. via Don't Settle: NoSurprises2012.com - YouTube. abcnews GOP contender Rep. Michele Bachmann released a web ad Tuesday attacking most of her Republican competition for switching positions on policies, or avowing ideas that are not in lock step with conservative ideology. The ad titled “No Surprises 2012″ opens with the question: “Who is the consistent conservative?” It then cobles video clips of her competition being less than “consistently conservative,” starting with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney saying, “I believe abortion should be safe and legal in this country” and “I will [...]
