The latest Rasmussen Reports poll makes what's at stake crystal clear for Republicans getting ready to vote in primaries and caucuses: President Obama is beatable. In fact, the only way Barack gets a second term is if the Grand Old Party drops the ball. According to Rasmussen's presidential matchups survey released Thursday, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney enjoys a commanding 6-point lead over Mr. Obama, 45 percent to 39 percent. Even more impressive, Mr. Romney has a huge 16-point lead among independent voters who have no party affiliation. It's time for the opposition to unify and work together to drive home a win.
Glenn Beck said on Monday that he could support a third-party challenge if Republicans nominate former House Speaker Newt Gingrich to run for president against Barack Obama. "If I had a gun to my head, I'll vote for Mitt Romney," he explained. "If it's Newt Gingrich, and there's a third party, and it's Ron Paul. ... I might consider Ron Paul as a third party." This position is nuts. Obviously Mr. Beck needs to generate attention for his new GBTV venture since giving up his popular Fox News platform, but promoting ideas that would lead to an Obama second term is reckless and bad for America.
President Obama is facing an internal revolt. Liberals are openly considering a primary challenge for the Democratic presidential nomination. Ralph Nader, a big-government maverick and former Green Party candidate, recently called for a group of left-leaning Democrats to run. If a prominent opponent emerges, Mr. Obama's re-election efforts would be fatally crippled.
Pressure is mounting on Barack Obama to throw in the cards and announce that he won't seek re-election as president. Surprisingly, the push is coming from the left. This has many in mainstream America scratching their heads asking why liberals want to dump the most hard-left president in American history. The answer is they're worried Mr. Obama has moved too far, too fast - and revealed too much of their big-government agenda - to win a second term. This is Hillary Clinton's moment.
The idea of challenging Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords for her congressional seat was once unthinkable, but a few potential candidates are starting to test the political waters.
Stephen King is offering an antidote to what he sees as the biases of right-wing radio talk shows by hiring a former Green Party vice presidential candidate to co-host a morning talk show on two stations he owns.

When a joint session of the U.S. Congress gave Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu 29 standing ovations - four more than President Obama received for his last State of the Union message - there was little doubt that Israel is an integral part of the American body politic. It was a hard-line speech by an Israeli on the right of the Israeli spectrum that firmly rejected Mr. Obama's proposal for Mideast peace: The pre-1967 war frontier with minor land swaps for both sides.
Actress Cate Blanchett and former conservative Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser are among prominent Australians who threw their support Monday behind the unpopular government plan to tax major polluters for the carbon gas they emit.
