Absolutely right!, I recall when he beat Bob Dole in New Hampshire and the next morning the entire Republican machine came out against him. As if that wasn't bad enough Bill Clinton attacked him saying we couldn't have tariffs! Thats when I knew Pat was right, when the establishment, Repub. and Demo. attacked him

After taping John Stossel's show on May 16 in New York, the Mrs. and I took the 10 a.m. Acela back to Washington. Once we had boarded the train, who should come waddling up the aisle but Bill Kristol.

The Weekly Standard editor seemed cheerful, and we chatted about the surge in Mitt Romney's popularity and prospects.

I did not ask what he had been doing in New York, but thanks to the website Mondoweiss, I found out. Kristol was there for a May 15 "debate" with Jeremy Ben-Ami of J Street, the pro-Israel organization, at B'nai Jeshurun...
