After defeating Richard Lugar, he should have been able to easily retain the GOP’s Senate seat in a state that Mitt Romney won by 10 points.

“Superstorm” Sandy killed more than 100 people, destroyed thousands of homes and businesses, and left millions without food, water, electricity, sanitation or shelter for days or even weeks. Our thoughts and prayers remain focused on its victims, many of whom are still grieving as they struggle with the storm’s wintry aftermath and try to rebuild their lives.

We know Romney was too conservative in the primaries and too moderate in the general.
We know Romney didn't run enough ads in the Spring then ran too many ads in the Fall.
We know Republicans depended too much on their turnout operation and too little on messaging.
We know Republicans depended too much on messaging and too little on their turnout operation.
We know the GOP and the Super PACs were too focused on fundraising and we know the Obama campaign raised more than enough money.
We know … well, you know what we know.

We conservatives may never reach a consensus among ourselves as to the main factors that caused our election defeat, but surely we can agree that we must do a better job of selling our ideas.

Liberal media outlets presented President Obama as a competent and compassionate leader in the time of a natural disaster, last week’s Hurricane Sandy. Some attribute Obama’s slight bump up in the polls to the hurricane.

I like Stephen Colbert. His brand of humor is very funny, and he reminds us how important it is to sometimes laugh at our politicians.

The first time I saw Chris Christie on television, shortly after he became governor of New Jersey, my immediate reaction was, "My Gosh! A Talking Republican!" It was almost like seeing a talking giraffe or a talking salamander.

South Carolina is not a swing state. Solidly Republican, it will vote for Mitt Romney by a large margin this November. So why would Gov. Chris Christie, a top Romney supporter and surrogate as well as the GOP convention's keynote speaker, take time out of an extremely busy schedule to visit the South Carolina delegation at the Republican convention in Tampa?

The future of the Republican Party was on display in Tampa, Fla., as the roll of speakers before Mitt Romney provided a preview of nomination battles in 2016 and beyond.

The delayed opening of the Republican National Convention worked to the advantage of the GOP by both heightening anticipation and forcing the elimination of extraneous speakers, which there are always too many of at these things.

His "whole life has prepared him for this moment – to meet serious challenges in a serious way, without excuses and idle words. After four years of getting the run-around, America needs a turnaround, and the man for the job is Governor Mitt Romney."

The Republican National Convention started off as an anxiety-ridden, soggy, depressing mess on Monday morning. By Tuesday night, the Democratic Party and Barack Obama in particular had to be an anxiety-ridden, soggy, depressing mess.

Tuesday night was Good Cop/Bad Cop night at the Republican National Convention. Ann Romney played the good cop; the keynote speaker, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, played the bad cop.

The theme for this year's Republican National Convention in Tampa is We Did Build That! It's an interesting choice of a theme. There are a lot of options this year: Governor Romney is running against a president who simply hasn't got anything right. Even the death of Osama Bin Laden, it turns out, is something that he bungled, since we saw him "spike the football" about it when his poll numbers started looking scary (incidentally, they haven't got any better since then).

When President George H. W. Bush raised taxes in the 1990 budget deal, it not only meant breaking his “Read my lips” promise with the American people. It was also from that time forward that conservatives in Congress have opposed any and all tax increases.

Your taxes are about to be raised; and guess who’s behind it. Here’s a clue – it’s not the Democrats. Despite all the talk about reducing the
size and scope of government during their campaigns, and railing against President Barack Obama’s proposed tax hikes, a number of Republican governors are advocating for a sales tax on Internet sales.

If we as a nation want to know what it will take to get back on track, we need look no further than what Republican Governors are doing throughout the country. The principles they are following are the key to our salvation and lead down the exact opposite road Barack Obama and the Democrats want to take to go “FORWARD.”

In 2000 and 2004, before the advent of the Tea Party, George W. Bush won Nevada, Colorado, Indiana, Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida and the White House.
In 2008, Barack Obama did the same. This year, Mr. Obama is unlikely to repeat this accomplishment. According to recent polling, these states, save Indiana, are up for grabs.

New Jersey’s governor may have a “conservative rock star” persona, but when it comes to the government takeover of health care Chris Christie has done nothing to stop it

Have you ever wondered how President Obama's budget can be unanimously defeated by both the House (414-0) and the Senate (97-0) and how the U.S. Senate can go three years without submitting or passing a single budget and yet government spending keeps exploding and the federal debt keeps growing?
