Paul Ryan ahead of that state’s GOP primary next week. After the former Massachusetts governor and venture capitalist gave a feisty afternoon speech at Lawrence University in Appleton, he gave me a call as I rode the Amtrak Acela to New York to appear on CNBC’s The ...

LARRY KUDLOW:: There Obama Goes Again – RCP

As Ronald Reagan famously said, “There you go again.” Of course, Reagan was blaming Jimmy Carter for launching false attacks during a debate. And that line was so effective, it not only helped Reagan win the debate, but a presidential election that would change American history. But “there you go again” can apply equally to President Obama. Once again this ... Go To Article

RICH LOWRY:: The Murders That Don’t Count – NRO

Delric Miller IV died in a hail of bullets a month ago. When someone fired 37 AK-47 rounds into his Detroit home at 4:30 a.m., he was mortally wounded while dozing on the couch.

JOHN NOLTE::  Media Silent as Left Attacks Kids of WI Lt. Gov.

By JOHN NOLTE, March 31, 2012, Breitbart This is what we see time and  again at the hands of the same Left that manufactured a month's long non-troversy over a word Rush Limbaugh spoke. While, on one hand, the left and their media allies feign outrage over Limbaugh, on the other hand, they either willfully ignore or launch vile, sexist attacks against conservative ... Go To Article
