CLINT EASTWOOD: The Greatest Piece of Performance Art in American Political History

August 31, 2012, By Ed Timperlake -- Americans  have a firm appreciation for sports metaphors. So if one looks at our political process to select the President as the "Super Bowl" then it could be implied that the two conventions are the first and second quarters respectively. The second half, with both conventions gaveled to a close, will show how each competing ... Go To Article

NOLTE: Media Strikes Back After Dirty Harry Dares Mock Obama [VIDEO LINK]

by JOHN NOLTE 30 Aug 2012 Newsflash: Obama can't take a joke. But we already knew that. For four long years we've waited, hoped and prayed that some young comic would break free of the politically correct demands of The State and mock Obama the way all presidents and all people in power should be mocked. But for four long years (with a few exceptions) all we've seen ... Go To Article

FRED BARNES: Romney Aces Convention Test –  WeeklyStandard

AUG 31, 2012 • BY FRED BARNES,  Tampa -- A few hours before Mitt Romney spoke to the Republican convention last night, his campaign did something clever. It’s normal procedure before a major speech is to release excerpts so the evening TV news shows can preview the address. The Romney team did so, only these excerpts were dull and uninteresting. Perhaps it was ... Go To Article

KIMBERLEY STRASSEL:: What We’ve Learned About Mitt – WSJ

The Republican convention has reached its close, and the nation has met Mitt Romney. While the intent of this week's show was to highlight the former governor's personal side and his party's reform credentials, we've learned plenty else in the past few months about the man who wants to take up residence in the White House. For one, Mr. Romney has grown as a candidate. ... Go To Article

JENNIFER RUBIN:: Mitt Romney’s acceptance speech – WaPo

By Jennifer Rubin -- Mitt Romney accepted the nomination of his party for president with a speech that showed he can rise to an occasion, and see a side of him that was compelling and heartbreaking. Much of the unveiling of the real Romney was done by speakers from his church, his longtime business partner Bob White and CEO’s of companies Bain had rescued. An ... Go To Article

PEGGY NOONAN:: Republicans Join The Battle – WSJ

Tampa, Fla. Two days in, I had no faith in this convention. The hurricane tore apart plans and affected everyone's mood. Normal chaos became heightened anxiety. On the floor, the delegate seats had too much space between them, which removed the kind of animal density that speakers in big halls need. The weird, excessive security left the areas around the Forum and the ... Go To Article

MARCO RUBIO:: Spotlighting Romney, Rubio Showcases His Own Star Power | RCP

By Caitlin Huey-Burns -- TAMPA -- On the final night of their nominating convention, the Republicans sent to the podium a man considered their most valuable and talented speaker as a contrast to a president widely perceived as one of the most gifted orators of his generation. That man wasn't the Republican nominee for president, Mitt Romney, but rather the one who ... Go To Article

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER:: The ‘deterrence works’ fantasy – WaPo

By Charles Krauthammer -- There are few foreign-policy positions more silly than the assertion without context that “deterrence works.” It is like saying air power works. Well, it worked for Kosovo; it didn’t work over North Vietnam. It’s like saying city-bombing works. It worked in Japan 1945 (Tokyo through Nagasaki). It didn’t in the London blitz. The ...

By Gov. Susana Martinez -- Tampa, Florida Thank you and good evening. On behalf of the great state of New Mexico, let me express my gratitude for being invited to speak tonight. Growing up, I never imagined a girl from a border town could one day become a governor. But this is America Y, en America todo es posible. My parents taught me to never give ... Go To Article
