Preview of Liberal Meltdown over GOP Efforts to Fracture Democratic Coalition

GOP

Liberal pundits have taken to mocking the GOP for ignoring the prescriptions laid out in the vaunted “autopsy” the Republican National Committee performed on the corpse of the party’s 2012 hopes. The criticism begins and ends with the observation that the Republican Party’s members in Congress have failed to come together around a plan to provide the nation’s illegal immigrants with a pathway to legal status. The criticism is valid and the Republican Party’s failure to embrace immigration reform may mute their ability to appeal to Hispanic voters. But the overall critique, that the GOP has abandoned the effort to persuade the members of President Barack Obama’s winning coalition to consider the alternative, is baseless. The GOP has not forsaken … [Read more...]

Poll: Hillary Popularity Falls to Lowest Level Since ’08 Dem Primaries

Clinton

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s popularity has dipped since she left President Barack Obama’s administration. According to the latest Fox News poll, conducted by the Democratic polling outlet Anderson Robbins Research and the Republican firm Shaw & Company, Clinton’s favorability rating has fallen to its lowest point since April, 2008.

The latest Fox poll contained a variety … [Read more...]

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie delivered a message to his fellow members of the Republican Party on Thursday: being pro-life means reforming America’s drug laws and criminal sentencing procedures.

Addressing his fellow Republican governors, Christie said that “it’s great to be pro-life, but you need to be pro-life after they get out of the womb, too.” “If we believe in the sanctity of life, then we need to believe in … [Read more...]

Obama: GOP Going Through ‘Stages of Grief’ Accepting Obamacare Success

obama

President Barack Obama spoke to the press on Thursday where he revealed that over 8 million have signed up for private insurance through the Affordable Care Act’s private insurance exchanges. When asked by a reporter if it was possible in the present political environment to pass fixes for the law’s flaws, the president said it was but only after the Republican Party goes through the “stages of grief” before accepting the law as a permanent feature of American life. Obama said that it would be possible to pass changes to the ACA, but that would “require a change in attitude on the part of the Republicans.” “The challenge we have is that if we have certain members in the Republican Party whose view is, making it work better is a concession to … [Read more...]
