From Kiplinger Letter It's hard to ignore Newt Gingrich’s return from the dead as a viable Republican presidential candidate, but it is easy to take his second act with a grain of salt. Labeled an also-ran presidential wannabe at the outset of the election season, Gingrich has emerged as the latest flavor-of-the-month in the GOP’s White House sweepstakes. But is Mitt Romney’s camp nervous? Not so much, though it is retooling its strategy to target a candidate it had long ago written off as a legitimate threat. Read the full story by Kenneth R. Bazinet, Associate Editor, The Kiplinger Letter - Can Gingrich Derail Romney?.
(Reuters) - Four U.S. states holding contests early in 2012 to choose the Republican presidential nominee threatened on Thursday to leapfrog Florida if it goes ahead with a primary election date of January 31. Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina are the only four states permitted by the Republican National Committee (RNC) to hold primaries or caucuses earlier than March 6, the date dubbed "Super Tuesday" with contests in multiple states. Florida's announcement on Wednesday that it wanted to hold its primary in January started a game of leapfrog among states to assert their influence in picking the nominee and to draw millions of dollars in candidate spending. As it currently stands, the Iowa caucuses are set for February 6, the New Hampshire primary for February 14, the [...]

Did PBS alter the transcript of Obama's Speech to hide gaffe about Lincoln and the Republican Party?
Barack Obama has gone to Congress asking for more money to spend. The President, in a rambling and tedious exercise mixing blame with demands, made quite a few dubious statements in laying out the case for Congress to vote for the plan which as yet does not exist. Much like Obamacare, Congress must ultimately vote for the bill to know what is in it. At one point Mr. Obama made a major gaffe; he identified Abraham Lincoln as the founder of the Republican Party. Lincoln did not join the Republicans until 1856, over two years after the party was founded. The first Republican convention was held in Ripon, Wisconsin in 1854. Such a gaffe would have brought huge amounts of ridicule and derision on George W. Bush, but in the case of Obama the media yawned. Actually, they did more than yawn; [...]
THE WHITE HOUSE - PRESS CONFERENCE BY THE PRESIDENT - East Room - 11:40 A.M. EDT June 29, 2011 Watch Video THE PRESIDENT: Good morning, everybody. Have a seat, please. I just want to say a few words about the economy before I take your questions. There are a lot of folks out there who are still struggling with the effects of the recession. Many people are still looking for work or looking for a job that pays more. Families are wondering how they'd deal with a broken refrigerator or a busted transmission, or how they're going to finance their kids' college education, and they're also worrying about the possibility of layoffs. The struggles of middle-class families were a big problem long before the recession hit in 2007. They weren’t created [...]
Washington, D.C. - Bachmann for President Spokeswoman Alice Stewart has issued the following statement in response to questions regarding Bachmann and Associates Counseling Clinic receiving payments from the Minnesota Medicaid Program: "Medicaid is a valuable form of insurance for many Americans and it would be discriminatory not to accept Medicaid as a form of payment. As a state-sponsored counseling service, Bachmann and Associates has a responsibility to provide Medicaid and medical assistance, regardless of a patient's financial situation."
Ron Paul is in – almost. The Texas Republican congressman and libertarian icon formally announced Tuesday that he was forming an presidential exploratory committee, matching the moves of more mainstream GOP hopefuls such as former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty. And in what was meant as a show of seriousness, the Texas physician made his announcement in Des Moines, Iowa, where the first votes will be cast for the GOP nomination. He also introduced an Iowa leadership team, including three elected members of the state Republican Party’s central committee. In his 2008 run, Rep. Paul showed he had staying power, and a base of support drawn from the libertarian ranks of the GOP. But he was never able to convince Republican officials he was [...]
