Paul Ryan is rolling out his new budget this week, and in most substantive policy terms, it’s a repeat of last year’s version, Path To Prosperity (even the ad campaigns are near-identical).

This is, according to conventional wisdom, terrible for Republicans. Though popular with party purists, Path To Prosperity landed last year with a thud; Democrats, with a little help from everybody’s favorite wacky uncle, were able to use to paint the Republicans as austere bulls in the Medicare china shop, and even picked up a surprise House seat from the fallout.

Obama Blames Fox News For Troubles With White, Middle-Class Males















In an upcoming book by Mother Jones’ Washington Bureau Chief David Corn, President Obama blamed Fox News Channel for his polling problems among white, middle-class men.

TN Abortion Bill To Target Abortion Patients, Doctors

If The GOP Needed Palin To Stir The Base In 2008, They’ll Need Two Palins In 2012

Super Tuesday: The States And Candidates To Watch Tonight










Moving into the key Super Tuesday primaries, it is important to note that Mitt Romney remains the frontrunner and even if he has a “bad night” it will be one accompanied by a floor of 150+ delegates. Many suspect that the former Massachusetts governor could secure more than 200 delegates tonight. Even with the outside possibility that he loses Ohio and Tennessee (which is possible if not probable), Romney will still emerge the delegate leader tonight…Read More
