Turns out the New York Times is worried about the future of the Republican Party. So concerned, in fact, it has dedicated more than 6,000 words in this week’s magazine to explore, as the title puts it, “Can The Republicans Be Saved From Obsolescence?”
The United States, from day one, was a project about principles and ideals.
One of the largest elephants in the GOP's post-election room is the fate of Christian and other social conservatives. Party honchos can't just wish this problem away -- or, maybe they can.
Most Americans will focus on election results in Ohio and Florida to see who rides those states’ Electoral College votes into the White House.
As Richard Mourdock’s Indiana Senate fate hinges on how voters absorb his views on rape, all conservatives have an opportunity for a look in the mirror. Just how pro-life do we want to be?
A new poll from Wenzel Strategies shows Rep. Todd Akin leading incumbent Senator Claire McCaskill in the race for the Senate seat in Missouri.
The pro-abortion ranks were absolutely jubilant about the mega-gaff made by Congressman Todd Akin, the Republican senate hopeful that was comfortably beating one of their own, Senator Claire McCaskill, in the swing state of Missouri. Akin tangled his words so badly in answer to an abortion question about exceptions for rape that he invented a nonsensical phrase: legitimate rape.
The third definition of "patriot" in the Oxford English Dictionary is "A person actively opposing enemy forces occupying his or her country; a member of a resistance movement, a freedom fighter. Originally used of those who opposed and fought the British in the American War of Independence."
At the end of the day, I’ll support the conservative who makes a lousy gynecologist over the liberal who makes a lousy senator.
A French proverb declares: “What is hard to endure is sweet to recall.” I seldom agree with the French, but, as a former professional boxer, I know this to be true.
Perhaps now, in the wake of the heat that Mitt Romney is taking over the leaked four month old “47 percent” video, he can better appreciate the position of Todd Akin.
Given my five-year skepticism and/or hostility to the potential of a Mitt Romney presidency, the Romulans may feel as if I am one of the last patriots on earth they should take advice from.
Contrary to what you’ve heard from the liberal media and the Republican Party establishment, which are becoming virtually indistinguishable these days if you ask me, the Todd Akin saga isn’t about his much-maligned mangled comments.
Townhall's Guy Benson discusses the Senate outlook with the Senate Minority Leader.
Republican Party operatives, who wasted no time indicting their Missouri Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin for his interview faux pas on abortion, may bear more responsibility than Akin himself for the mess that has been created.
Todd Aiken’s grossly irresponsible remarks about “legitimate rape” and conception have received much media attention. As well they should. The sheer weirdness of the remarks calls into question both his intelligence and his personal integrity. How could someone conclude logically that a rape victim’s body has the capacity to prevent conception in the wake of sexual assault? And why would someone assert that the conclusion had been supported by doctors with whom he had spoken?
When it comes to abortion, which political party's views are more extreme?
Liberal pundits are declaring they have no idea what Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) meant when he referred to “legitimate rape” in an interview this past week. Akin stated, "In cases of legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down." It was an awkward, inarticulate statement, but the substance of it was correct.
