‘Pennies From Heaven’
When I joined Monitor Company (now Group) in the spring of 1992, the first party its directors, my new?colleagues,?invited me to was at Mitt Romney’s mansion in Belmont. Romney was at the time still with Bain Capital, but his political…

Obama in Kansas
I’m ready to wager that when the campaign of 2012 is all over, President Obama’s speech yesterday in Osawatomie, Kansas will be seen as the turning point that led to his victory in November 2012. Readers of this blog know…

Crony Capitalism in the Air
After trying to push it through as part of the debt ceiling debacle, then in the super committee, Republicans are now trying to attach spectrum auction provisions to the payroll tax holiday bill. Their bill is about as clear an…

Overwhelming Majority Of Coloradans Support Same-Sex Unions
A new PPP poll shows that 76 percent of Colorado voters support legal recognition of same-sex couples, including a plurality of 47 percent supporting for full marriage equality. Republicans in Colorado’s House defeated a civil unions bill last April, but advocates have said they plan to reintroduce the measure next year. With three out of […]

A new PPP poll shows that 76 percent of Colorado voters support legal recognition of same-sex couples, including a plurality of 47 percent supporting for full marriage equality. Republicans in Colorado’s House defeated a civil unions bill last April, but advocates have said they plan to reintroduce the measure next year. With three out of four constituents saying they support civil unions, Republican legislators will have a hard time opposing them while still claiming to represent the voters. (HT: LGBTQ Nation.)

Romney Hits Gingrich?s Ideas For Moon Colonies And Space Mirrors
Yesterday, New York Times columnist David Brooks dredged up some of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s more fanciful policy ideas. For example, Gingrich has called for building “a permanent lunar colony to exploit the Moon’s resources” and a “mirror system in space could provide the light equivalent of many full moons” for nighttime driving. Today, […]

Yesterday, New York Times columnist David Brooks dredged up some of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s more fanciful policy ideas. For example, Gingrich has called for building “a permanent lunar colony to exploit the Moon’s resources” and a “mirror system in space could provide the light equivalent of many full moons” for nighttime driving. Today, in an interview with the Des Moines Register Editorial Board, fellow GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney poked some fun at these science-fiction inspired ideas, as well as Gingrich’s embrace of child labor:

A new Gallup survey shows that more than three-quarters of registered voters think most members of Congress do not deserve to be reelected – the highest such number in the 19 years that Gallup has asked the question.

Seventy-six percent of registered voters in the Gallup survey said they don’t think most lawmakers deserve to be reelected, while 20 percent said they believe most members of Congress do deserve reelection.

Democrats have bought $1 million worth of ad time in the upcoming special congressional election in Oregon – a significant sign that the heavily Democratic seat of former congressman David Wu (D-Ore.) could be at risk.

Perry gets number of justices on Supreme Court wrong, forgets Sotomayor’s name

DES MOINES — Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Friday there are eight Supreme Court justices, not nine, and couldn’t remember Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s name in an editorial board meeting with The Des Moines Register newspaper.

Perry’s repeated stumbles are keeping him from steadying his Republican presidential campaign with less than a month remaining before the lead-off caucuses in Iowa.

Obama Parrots Chavez, Shows Why He Can’t Lead

Obama Parrots Chavez, Shows Why He Can’t Lead
Peter Ferrara, Forbes
On Tuesday, President Obama went to Osawatomie High School in Kansas to deliver an address framing the economic issues for the 2012 election.  He was following in the footsteps of turn of the century “progressive” Teddy Roosevelt, who spoke at that same site 100 years ago to rail against big corporations and the privileged, while calling for “fair play” for ordinary Americans.But the speech only showed why Obama can’t lead America on the economy.  Instead of leading us forward into the modern economics of the 21st century, he…

Eric Holder Stonewalls On
Michael Walsh, New York Post
For the sake of argument, let’s assume that everything Attorney General Eric Holder told the House Judiciary Committee yesterday was true. That the answer to several questions about who ordered Fast and Furious — the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ “deeply flawed, reckless, misguided and inexcusable” (Holder’s words) gun-trafficking operation — is: “We don’t know yet.”

All the GOP’s Gordon Gekkos
Paul Krugman, New York Times
Almost a quarter of a century has passed since the release of the movie “Wall Street,” and the film seems more relevant than ever. The self-righteous screeds of financial tycoons denouncing President Obama all read like variations on Gordon Gekko’s famous “greed is good” speech, while the complaints of Occupy Wall Street sound just like what Gekko says in private: “I create nothing. I own,” he declares at one point; at another, he asks his protégé, “Now you’re not naïve…

No Need to Rush Primary Process
Jonah Goldberg, Boston Herald
In 2008, the Democrats were blessed with two candidates the party's rank-and-file admired almost as much as the press corps did.Ultimately Barack Obama, the hope-and-change guy, was more popular than Hillary Clinton if for no other reason than that the former first lady came with so much baggage "” mostly in the form of her husband, but also some scandals of her own "” while Obama was a fresh start.But everyone let that contest play out. There was little urgency over the need to pick a candidate as soon as possible.This time, the Republican field is…
