While we await the release of pictures for today’s caption contest, namely Merkel and Samaras hugging it out, which incidentally will be today’s top news, as the Greek PM enters the lioness’ den and begs for more, only to hear Merkel recite Herman Cain’s tax plan, here is another picture: it is of “America’s Next Top Model” contestant and MTV anchor Kim Stolz, who was just hired away by Citigroup [...]
Conservative black U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Palm Beach Gardens, says an ad that depicts him punching white women plays on racial stereotypes and would make liberals “apoplectic” if a Republican ran it against a black Democrat.
While Sarah Palin and Herman Cain joined the West campaign in ratcheting up criticism of the ad on Friday, an NAACP official said he didn’t find the 30-second spot to be racially offensive. And [...]

Ron Paul’s 2012 campaign has won the majority of Washington’s delegates to the Republican National Convention, and a number of other states are expected to follow suit, pointing to a hectic convention in which Mitt Romney’s path to the nomination may face a major insurgent opponent.
Washington is now the third state, after Iowa and Minnesota, in which Ron Paul has locked up at least half of the state’s [...]

CUMMING, Ga. (AP) — Newt Gingrich Saturday blamed negative ads run by Mitt Romney and an allied independent group – not dissatisfaction with the Republican field – for depressing voter enthusiasm and turnout in the Republican presidential contest.
The former House speaker made his remarks at a campaign stop in Georgia, which holds its primary on March 6, Super Tuesday. Gingrich represented the state’s 6th congressional district for 20 [...]
The Twittter account of Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, a former supporter of the anti-piracy legislation PIPA, was hacked Monday by a follower of the Anonymous “hacktivist” group.
“Dear Iowans, vote against ACTA, SOPA, and PIPA, because this man, Chuck Grassley, wants YOUR internet censored and all of that BS,” read Grassley’s account Monday afternoon. “Yes I was hacked.”
Grassley withdrew his support for PIPA last week.
The person who wrote unauthorized tweets said he was supportive of the [...]

Politicians vying for the highest office in America often try to project a down-home demeanor to endear themselves to the electorate.
At the same time, nobody can mount a serious campaign for the presidency without money, and lots of it.
So as nice as it is to come off like someone a voter would love to have a beer with, even the folksiest candidate will never make it to the Iowa caucus [...]

(Reuters) – U.S. presidential hopeful Mitt Romney’s tax plan would cut revenues and increase the government’s budget deficit, while benefiting wealthy taxpayers more than others, said a report from a non-partisan think tank released on Thursday.
The Republican front-runner’s campaign responded with a defense of his plan and criticized President Barack Obama’s record on taxes, saying it has “stunted” economic growth.
The Romney plan, said [...]

#1 The Federal Reserve
To the financial elite, there is no more important financial institution in the United States than the Federal Reserve, and Mitt Romney is a huge supporter of the Federal Reserve.
During one Republican debate, Romney actually tried to explain to all of us why “we need to have a Fed“.
Not only that, Mitt Romney has stated that he is not really concerned about what is going [...]
The lead for the GOP presidential nomination has changed seven times says a new Gallup poll report which calls the Republican race the “most volatile for the GOP since the advent of polling.”
The Gallup report says this is the first time since 1964 where the GOP front-runner spot has seen so many changes. Gallup counts four front-runners and seven lead changes since polling began in May with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, businessman [...]

Mitt Romney tops the latest Des Moines Register Iowa Poll in the closing days before the Iowa caucuses, but Ron Paul and Rick Santorum are poised within striking distance.
The poll, conducted Tuesday through Friday, shows support at 24 percent for Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts; 22 percent for Paul, a Texas congressman; and 15 percent for the surging Rick Santorum, a former [...]
Mitt Romney has now jumped to his biggest lead ever over President Obama in a hypothetical Election 2012 matchup. It’s also the biggest lead a named Republican candidate has held over the incumbent in Rasmussen Reports surveying to date.
The latest national telephone survey finds that 45% of Likely U.S. Voters favor the former Massachusetts governor, while 39% prefer the president. Ten percent (10%) like some other candidate in the race, [...]
Republican presidential candidate, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman speaks and shakes …
WASHINGTON (AP) — Former U.S. Ambassador Jon Huntsman is defending his refusal to compete in the leadoff Iowa Republican precinct caucuses, focusing instead on New Hampshire.
Huntsman tells CBS’s “The Early Show” the formula, so far as he is concerned, is quite elementary. Says Huntsman: “They pick corn inIowa. They pick presidents in New Hampshire.”
The former Utah governor has made little effort [...]

Despite a barrage of smear attacks from every single corner of the mainstream media over the last two weeks, Ron Paul’s chances of winning the Iowa Republican Primary have if anything increased, with a new poll showing Paul increasing his lead over Mitt Romney while the New York Times’ primary projection shows Paul’s [...]
Suffice to say, it’s been a pretty embarrassing year for politicians.
Newt Gingrich Is An Idiot NewtGingrich.com
Ashley Madison’s Newt Gingrich Billboard
In this day and age there is no excuse for not owning your own domain. None.
That goes times a million when you are a politician running for president. And yet, somehow Newt Gingrich, or anyone who worked for him, did not think to snap up NewtGingrich.com. Something the Internet was made [...]
Probably the best objective analysis of Ron Paul’s past racist newsletters is this one:
Who Wrote Ron Paul’s Newsletters? (January 18, 2008)
“Ron Paul doesn’t seem to know much about his own newsletters. The libertarian-leaning presidential candidate says he was unaware, in the late 1980s and early 1990s, of the bigoted rhetoric about African Americans and gays that was appearing under his name.”
The biggest concern I have, is that Ron Paul didn’t come out [...]

A new Iowa State University poll shows that Ron Paul is accelerating away from Mitt Romney in the race to capture the key Republican primary, with the Congressman placed first in front of Newt Gingrich, having captured more of former frontrunner Herman Cain’s supporters than Romney.
“Paul is the first choice of 27.5 [...]
Establishment reverts back to pretending Paul doesn’t exist

Tuesday, December 20, 2011
From rightly heralding the Iowa primary as a crucial indicator as to who will eventually capture the GOP nomination, the establishment has closed ranks and now decided that a Ron Paul victory doesn’t count and that the focus will be on who finishes second.
A Politico article entitled Ron Paul panic seizes Iowa establishment perfectly illustrates the supreme arrogance [...]
Herman Cain is no longer running for president. He doesn’t think he’s likely to be picked as the eventual nominee’s running mate, either. But he does have a Cabinet post in mind should the GOP win the White House next fall: secretary of Defense.
Cain shared the idea with ABC’s Barbara Walters during her annual special on the “10 Most Fascinating People.” And the veteran journalist was just a bit surprised.
High Stakes, High Drama for Final Debate Before Voting Begins
SIOUX CITY, Iowa – It’s been 32 weeks since the first Republican presidential debate. Since then, a changing cast of contenders has faced off a dozen times across the country with millions watching at home.
Of the original combatants from that May 5 meeting in Greenville, S.C., only two, Ron Paul and Rick Santorum, remain. There have been four lead changes in national polls, two [...]

(Reuters) – Newt Gingrich’s surge to the top of the Republican presidential field is attracting donations and volunteers to his minimalist campaign. But Gingrich still lacks a staple of successful bids for national office: a big-name endorsement.
No prominent Republican leaders have jumped aboard Gingrich’s growing but still-small bandwagon.
It is a reflection of the skepticism with which many top members of the party have viewed [...]
Ron Paul, the Texan Congressman and standard bearer of the Libertarian wing of the Republican party, has pulled to within one point of front-runner Newt Gingrich in the crucial early state of Iowa.

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney remains on top of the New Hampshire Republican Primary field, but the race for second place between Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul is a lot closer than it was just two weeks ago.
The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Republican Primary Voters shows Romney with 33% of the vote, followed by Gingrich at 22%. Paul now picks up 18% support, his [...]
The Washington Times
Newt Gingrich has made a point of ridiculing the press during his presidential campaign, but he actually owes the media a debt of gratitude. Without the free coverage he has received, the money-challenged Gingrich campaign might never have gotten off the ground.
“Free media propelled Herman Cain from nowhere to somewhere and back again. And it resurrected Newt from the ashes,” said Mark McKinnon, vice chairman of Public Strategies Inc., who worked as a media adviser to the [...]

The Donald is miffed Ron Paul has decided not attend his soirée. In response to a question about Paul’s decision to not attend – along with John Huntsman – the Newsmax GOP “debate” hosted by Trump, he said it doesn’t matter if “joke candidates” do not participate. “I think those two candidates have zero chance of being elected so it makes no difference.”

With the dizzying fall of Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich has stepped into the breach and now stands alone as the most popular GOP presidential candidate in The Des Moines Register’s new Iowa Poll.
Gingrich, with support of 25 percent of likely Republican caucusgoers, is seven points ahead of the rising Ron Paul, who’s at 18 percent. Mitt Romney drops to third, [...]
