GOP Congressman: George Bush ‘Destroyed GOP’

Twitter is just as good a place as any to criticize your former president, as Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) proved on Wednesday. The GOP congressman wrote a tweet saying that George W. Bush was not a “class act” and had, in fact, “destroyed” his party. “@MarkRMatthews Bush not class act, destroyed GOP, jailed Ramos & Compean, left us bailouts, gave more power to fed gov & China,” Rohrabacher’s tweet read. A further look at the digital dialogue shows that Mark R. Matthews, a “very conservative” law professor, had earlier commended Bush as a “class act” for his decision not to

CIVIL WAR: Epic GOP Battle Brewing For 2012

The GOP faces a wide playing field in 2012, as 21 Democrats and two independents who caucus with Democrats are up for re-election. With only 10 Republican held seats up, that gives Republicans ample opportunity to win the seats necessary to gain a majority. But there are early signs that the same intra-party feuds that limited huge pickups in the Senate in 2010 are re-emerging for 2012. Members who would be likely locks for re-election – Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar (R) and Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe (R) — could well face serious primary challenges from Tea Party candidates. And Democratic

Paul Rieckhoff: This Veterans Day, Let’s Show Our Vets We’ve Got Their Backs

For months, our country has been divided over “ObamaCare,” Bush tax cuts and Wall Street bailouts. But with the election finally behind us, it’s time for all Americans to come together and find some common ground. It won’t be around immigration reform or deficit spending, but it can be around one critical and universal issue: Veterans Day. Veterans Day is easily forgotten. It falls right after the election and right before the holidays, and for many Americans, it’s a holiday that usually drops off the radar. Yet, for the millions of veterans who have served our country throughout history, this

Bill Quigley: Bush Pens True Crime Book And Better Worry!

In his memoir (which some wise people have already moved in bookstores to the CRIME section) George W. Bush admitted that he authorized that detainees be waterboarded, tortured, a crime under US and international law. Bush’s crime confession coincides with reports that no one will face criminal charges from the US Department of Justice for the destruction of 92 CIA videotapes which contained interrogations using waterboarding. Where is the accountability for these crimes? Bush and other criminals will be brought to justice if the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) and the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) have

Sarah Palin Slams Obama As ‘Most Pro-Abortion President’

DALLAS — Sarah Palin attacked President Barack Obama on Wednesday for his support of abortion rights and for the federal health care overhaul as the former Alaska governor appeared in Texas with another tea party favorte, Gov. Rick Perry. Palin described Obama as “the most pro-abortion president to occupy the White House” at the Dallas event, which was sponsored by a nonprofit organization that promotes an anti-abortion message. The 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee also said the federal health care law is the “mother of all unfunded mandates” and means federal funding will go toward abortions. The law walled off federal

Growing Number Of Conservative Dems Press Pelosi To Step Aside

(WASHINGTON) — In a fresh sign of turmoil among defeated Democrats, a growing number of the rank and file say they won’t support House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a politically symbolic roll call when the new Congress meets in January. “The reality is that she is politically toxic,” said Illinois Rep. Mike Quigley, one of several Democrats who are trying to pressure Pelosi to step aside as her party’s leader in the wake of historic election losses to Republicans last week. From The Huffington Post
