Anthony D. Weiner's scandal highlights the media's disparate treatment of such political circuses. Lost in the firestorm each scandal creates is this key distinction: When Democrats get caught, the media view it as an individual failing; when Republicans slip up, they hold the entire party responsible.
Whatever the Republican Party is doing right now (does anyone have a clue?), one thing is clear: They can’t keep doing what they’ve been doing.
Taking little time to celebrate, President Barack Obama is setting out to leverage his re-election into legislative success in an upcoming showdown with congressional Republicans over taxes, deficits and the impending "fiscal cliff." House Speaker John Boehner says Republicans are willing to consider some form of higher tax revenue as part of the solution — but only "under the right conditions."
There's no stopping Democrats out for political blood. Richard Mourdock, the Indiana Republican locked in a close contest with Democrat Joe Donnelly for a U.S. Senate seat, offered a badly phrased comment about abortion in rape cases during a debate Tuesday.
Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, is again backing Indiana's Richard Mourdock for the Senate after Mr. Mourdock explained his remark that pregnancy from rape is "something God intended," a spokesman said Thursday.
As the Republican standard-bearer this year, Mitt Romney, a late-in-life convert to the pro-life cause, finds himself at the helm of a party staking out an increasingly absolute opposition to abortion, even as he tries to woo moderate voters he'll need to win on Election Day.
Stumping in the state that both campaigns see as critical to the 2012 vote, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney vowed Thursday that he and Rep. Paul Ryan, his running mate, will bring the kind of "big change" to Washington that President Obama promised in 2008 but has failed to deliver over the course of his first term in office.
U.S. Senate candidate Richard Mourdock apologized Wednesday to anyone who misinterpreted his statement during a Tuesday night debate that "even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, it is something that God intended to happen," but the move did little to quell the drumbeat of Democrats quickly trying to tie the comments to Mitt Romney, who recently taped an ad endorsing Mr. Mourdock.
President Barack Obama on Wednesday night criticized Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock for his remarks about rape and pregnancy, saying that "rape is rape" and that the Republican's comments "don't make any sense to me."
With his statement Tuesday that pregnancy from rape is God's will, Senate candidate Richard Mourdock became the latest Republican to stumble into trouble attempting to articulate a key pro-life argument against abortion — that life begins at conception — but doing so in a way that appears insensitive to women.
Seeking to blow a hole in President Obama's road map to victory, Mitt Romney campaigned in Nevada on Wednesday and had another stop scheduled in Iowa — two battleground states that Mr. Obama carried four years ago and where he now clings to a lead with less than two weeks to go in a tight election.
Senate Republicans will jump into Indiana's pitched Senate battle this week, responding to a Democratic ad-buy with one of their own as they seek control of the Senate in November.
Orrin G. Hatch appeared to be coasting to victory in Utah's Republican Senate primary, and then Richard G. Lugar happened.
For Senate Republicans, 2012 is starting a lot like 2010. They have a shot at taking control away from Democrats as long as insurgent conservatives who are defeating the party's more establishment candidates in primaries don't frighten too many independent voters like they did two years ago.
Reports of the Tea Party's death have been exaggerated greatly. Oh sure, Harry Reid may say it's dead, and he clearly wishes it were so. The upset victory of Richard Mourdock in Indiana indicates the Tea Party is alive and well.
"I don't think, say a Gingrich or a Broun supporter, if their candidates are eliminated, will vote for a Michelle Nunn," he said. "On the other hand, if Broun were to get the nomination, then there might will be some establishment types that might end up voting for Nunn."
Mr. Mourdock said: "If life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen."
