The patient has been ill for a long time, having contracted the political power virus from the Republican Party. On Tuesday, May 7, the last breath of the Christian right was exhaled as former Gov. Mark Sanford waltzed onto a stage and patted himself on the back for a political comeback.

We write to express our great displeasure with the RNC commissioned report titled Growth and Opportunity Project. As individuals and organizations which represent millions of grassroots, faith-based voters who have supported (politically and financially) thousands of Republican candidates who share our values, we write to say:
The Republican Party makes a huge historical mistake if it intends to dismantle this coalition by marginalizing social conservatives and avoiding the issues which attract and energize them by the millions.
This morning, GING-PAC co-sponsored the 2013 Eric Cantor Annual Campaign Breakfast. Cantor is the Majority Leader in Congress – second to Speaker of the House John Boehner.
The campaign breakfast included such stalwarts of the GOP as Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell, Governor Bobby Jindall of Louisiana, and many prominent Virginia politicians including Virginia Delegate’s Speaker of the House Bill Howell.
The Wall Street Journal used a half page of its editorial space Jan. 30 to publish a totally illogical, if not delusional, column (“Israel’s New Islamist Neighborhood: If Western history is any guide, the growth of democracy slowly diminishes religious imperatives”) by former CIA Middle East specialist Reuel Marc Gerecht regarding the future “moderation” of Islam in the Middle East.

I was on Capitol Hill on Thursday, January 3rd as the 113th Congress was sworn in. Only families of the Members are allowed at the actual swearing, but I attended reception with some of those that were elected with the help of the PAC of which I am the chairman.

Every candidate Rove backed that ran away from social issues lost.
“If an individual is not afraid of the wrath of God, it is impossible to cause him to fear the justice of the state.
“The killing of young children at their school will be linked by many pundits to the availability of guns. Still others will blame the violent act on some pathology or childhood trauma. Some may even blame the Hollywood culture with its disregard for humanity, on which human bodies are seen being dissected nightly on network TV. Virtually no one will call what occurred in Newtown an act of evil.”
There are numerous polls and most show a close race. The media refer to the polls as being in the “margin of error,” meaning that a two or three point lead cannot be determined one way of the other. I do not see the polls or the race as “in the margin of error.”
I view the poll numbers as placing the election within “the margin of corruption.” The election’s outcome may well be determined by a handful of counties in the United States well known for corruption and one of those is Cuyahoga County, Ohio.
A special message from Mike Huckabee in support of Todd Akin’s run for the U.S. Senate The deadline came and went on Tuesday for Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin to drop out over an incorrect comment he made about rape.

Landmark school-prayer case has sinister connection to Supreme Court today By Michael Thompson With news of the U.S. Supreme Court upholding the constitutionality of Obamacare and striking down three of the four provisions of Arizona’s S.B. 1070 dominating the news, the 50th anniversary of a Supreme Court case passed by without recognition.
