To talk with Gingrich supporters is to enter a world where words have no meaning. They denounce Mitt Romney as a candidate being pushed on them by “the Establishment” — with “the Establishment” defined as anyone who supports Romney or doesn’t support Newt.

There‚Äôs a subpoena from a Georgia administrative court with Barack Obama‚Äôs name on it for him to be in Atlanta on Thursday, along with the documentation about his birth, to answer to challenges from residents of the state objecting to the presence of his name on the 2012 ballot.
They believe he‚Äôs simply not eligible under the Constitution‚Äôs requirement that a president be a ‚Äúnatural born citizen.‚ÄĚ They say the Founders thought of that status as the offspring of two citizen parents, and Obama‚Äôs father was Kenyan. Or they say he wasn‚Äôt born in the U.S. They are legitimately allowed to raise those challenges under a state law.

On a frigid January evening in 2009, a week before his Inauguration, Barack Obama had dinner at the home of George Will, the Washington Post columnist, who had assembled a number of right-leaning journalists to meet the President-elect. Accepting such an invitation was a gesture on Obama‚Äôs part that signalled his desire to project an image of himself as a post-ideological politician, a Chicago Democrat eager to forge alliances with conservative Republicans on Capitol Hill. That week, Obama was still working on an Inaugural Address that would call for ‚Äúan end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn-out dogmas that for far too long have strangled our politics.‚ÄĚ

Take this quiz: If President Barack Obama wins a second term, he has promised that he will do ‚Ä¶ what exactly?
There are people who follow the president closely who couldn‚Äôt answer that question. And even those who try would surely find themselves disagreeing with one another.

With the 2012 elections just months away, the ACORN-connected group Project Vote (and Obama campaign ally) is redoubling its efforts to undermine the integrity of the 2012 elections ‚Äď and they are evidently doing it with the participation of the Obama White House and the Department of Justice (DOJ).
In January, Judicial Watch obtained additional documents about meetings held between Estelle Rogers, Director of Advocacy for the ACORN organization Project Vote, and officials from the Obama White House and the DOJ.

NORTH CHARLESTON, South Carolina ‚Äď Mitt Romney’s campaign will use the next days and weeks to paint a portrait of Newt Gingrich as hyper-ambitious, reckless, erratic, and consumed by a lust for power and a fantastical sense of his own place in history: As, that is, the Republican caricature of President Barack Obama.
To do this, they reached back to 2008 and employed the same attacks that Republican John McCain hurled at candidate Obama‚ÄĒthat he was arrogant, elitist, and obsessed with historic stature.

BigJournalism today featured an article entitled ‚ÄúBen Smith Uses Buzzfeed to Land Lower Blows On GOP‚ÄĚ
Such a title makes a big claim about Buzzfeed‚Äôs new top political editor. ¬†I was expecting to perhaps find a study of Buzzfeed headlines under Smith evidencing a clear cut bias or at least a sampling of quotes from Buzzfeed‚Äôs political articles demonstrating something less than objectivity.
Is this how Obama win will be guaranteed? Group with ties to president engaged in massive 3rd party drive.
