Seems GOP candidate Rick Santorum has a new Mate, Rupert Murdoch! Murdoch trying his thumbs at new media Twitter tweeted, "Can't resist this tweet, but all Iowans think about Rick Santorum. Only candidate with genuine big vision for country." Could that extra support translate to more votes in Iowa? His comments were significant not only because Mr. Murdoch controls Fox News Channel and The Wall Street Journal, but also because they were made on Twitter, a Web site that allowed for his support to be forwarded far and wide on the eve of the Iowa caucuses. Mr. Santorum was a paid analyst for Fox News before he announced his bid for the presidency last year. via Taking to Twitter, Murdoch Signals Support for Santorum - NYTimes.com.
Newt Gingrich voiced enthusiasm for Mitt Romney's Massachusetts health-care plan as recently as five years ago, the same plan he has been denouncing over the last few months as he campaigned for the Republican presidential nomination. "The health bill that Governor Romney signed into law this month has tremendous potential to effect major changes in the American health system," said an April 2006 newsletter published by Mr. Gingrich's former consulting company, the Center for Health Transformation. The two-page "Newt Notes" analysis, found online by The Wall Street Journal even though it no longer appears on the center's website, continued: via WSJ: Gingrich Once Applauded Romney's Health Plan - WSJ.com.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has taken a commanding lead in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, hitting the 40 percent mark for the first time in the campaign, according to an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released on Tuesday. Gingrich is the first choice of 40 percent of Republican primary voters compared with 23 percent support for former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, the poll found. But the survey also found deep unease with the Republican front-runner among independents and swing voters who normally decide presidential elections, the Wall Street Journal reported. In a hypothetical contest with President Barack Obama, Gingrich trails the Democratic incumbent by more than 10 percentage points (40 percent to 51 percent) while Obama leads Romney by 2 [...]
Steve Forbes is back, but now he has a southern draw. Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry unveiled a sweeping economic agenda Monday highlighted by a plan to level a voluntary 20 percent “flat tax” on all taxpayers who will accept it in place of what they’re paying now. The plan, outlined in a Wall Street Journal op-ed column a day before the Texas governor was set to unveil it in South Carolina, also calls for capping federal spending at 18 percent of the country’s GDP while allowing younger earners to privatize their Social Security accounts. Taxpayers who don’t want to pay a 20 percent flat income tax, he said, can keep their current rate. Perry offers several proposals that appear designed to sweeten the offer – and to counter criticism that the flat tax is [...]
By Karl Gotthardt Canadian and Military Issues Editor Herman Cain's folksy and blunt style has catapulted him in the lead in the GOP Presidential race, according to a national poll conducted by the Wall Street Journal and NBC. The poll, which surveyed 1000 adults between Oct 6th and 10th, put Cain at 27% over Mitt Romney's 23%. This is jump of 22% from just six weeks ago. The former Domino Pizza CEO's rise to the top of the pile has been upsetting Liberals, which like to stereotype blacks. The GOP field has seen a number of frontrunners. This however does not appear to be the flavour of the week. Cain's progress has been steady and his 9 9 9 policy, though characterized as simplistic by his opponents has been resonating with the public. Cain touts himself as the only [...]
Editors Note: Politisite is reprinting the Candidates Rebuttals Verbatim. "9-9-9" Would Wreck the U.S. Economy Herman Cain's signature "9-9-9" levies a brand new national sales tax and would further weaken the U.S. economy, leaving American taxpayers vulnerable to skyrocketing rates imposed by future Congresses. FreedomWorks recently illustrated how 9-9-9 lays the groundwork for a growth-suppressing European-style "value added tax": "dding a national retail sales tax on top of the federal income tax (even a flat tax) is a bad idea, because it creates the infrastructure for a federal-level, European-style VAT …. And if Cain's 9% personal flat tax failed to remain flat …. we would end up with the worst of both worlds: a confiscatory income tax and a job-crushing VAT." (Dean [...]
