Another day and another of President Obama's campaign boasts bites the dust. While out on the hustings last year, Mr. Obama pummeled Mitt Romney for writing a 2008 op-ed column in The New York Times titled "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt."
A number of publications, including The Washington Times, broke the news last week that President Obama had proposed moving the U.S. Embassy to the Vatican. All hell quickly broke loose in liberal circles of interest to defend the president and attack his conservative critics.
The contest to become the 2016 Republican presidential nominee is a jump ball in Iowa, where even with the caucuses more than two years away, potential candidates are making the trek to see and be seen by the voters who will decide the first cut.
The Obama administration said Sunday the flawed federal website that threatened to undo President Obama's health care law in its infancy "is night and day from where it was on Oct. 1."
Mitt Romney's son Josh wasn't expecting to pull four people from a mangled SUV on Thanksgiving — but that's exactly what he did.
Uninsured college students generally have less money and more debt than most, but they'll need to pay for insurance or opt-out soon just like everyone else.
Many people take pride in defying the conventions of society. Those conventions of society are also known as civilization. Defying them wholesale means going back to barbarism. Barbarians with electronic devices are still barbarians.
There's no do-over of elections. However fervently many Americans might want to turn back the clock to replace Barack Obama with Mitt Romney, they can't. Higher taxes, more spending and Obamacare are with us until Jan. 20, 2017. According to a new ABC News poll, most Americans think Mr. Obama is not a strong leader, that he doesn't understand the problems of Americans, that he's neither honest nor trustworthy, and he's a terrible manager. Mr. Romney, the pollsters found, would defeat the president in an election today. What a difference Obamacare makes.
"Smaller, simpler, smarter. Believe in America." That was the official motto of "Office of the President-Elect," a website launched by Mitt Romney's campaign in late October 2012. It was publicly visible for a time, but quickly deactivated after Mr. Romney lost the election. Now the public appears to have had a Romney renaissance of sorts.
Despite being on the losing 2012 presidential ticket, Rep. Paul Ryan's White House prospects have not dimmed in Iowa, where Republican insiders say he will get a strong look in the 2016 caucuses if he takes a crack at the nation's top elected office.
2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who called for a vague "self-deportation" policy for those in the country illegally during the Republican primary campaign, said Friday that illegal immigrants should be offered an eventual path to citizenship, once again entering a debate that has bitterly divided the Republican party in recent years.
2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney described his run last year as a "fabulous" experience Friday, but asked whether he might do it again, his wife Ann took matters into her own hands.
It's amazing to hear all the things President Obama supposedly doesn't know. For example, Mr. Obama said he was not aware that his federal government was smuggling assault weapons to Mexico. He denied that he came up with a "red line" on Syria, no matter what the video clips show. Mr. Obama claimed he didn't know the story of Joe Soptic, the man who, in an Obama presidential-campaign ad, blamed Mitt Romney for his wife's death.
When Democrats were exulting in the celestial glow of the third coming of Camelot, they surely did not expect that nirvana would be characterized by sheer incompetence, gross hypocrisy and a total aversion to accountability.
ANALYSIS: A year after President Obama rode to re-election accusing Republicans of a war on women, the governor's races in New Jersey and Virginia offered the GOP two options for how to strike back.
When a Baltimore television crew caught up with both men at a baseball game earlier, Mr. Romney said, "We have a lot of mutual friends and share mutual supporters, and we both governed pretty difficult states and faced fairly hostile legislatures, so we have a lot in common."
He said Americans who meet Mr. Romney realize that he best understands the country's economic problems and how to fix them.
