Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America condemn Republican Senators John McCain, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski for failing to deliver on their campaign promises to repeal and replace Obamacare during a vote late Thursday night, while also stressing the mistakes made by GOP leaders and the major flaws in the “skinny […]

White House watchers have spent a lot of time criticizing President Trump’s top staffing choices. Some want former GOP Chairman Reince Priebus booted off the team for being a swamp-enabling RINO squish. Others think former Breitbart boss Steve Bannon will tie the administration to kooky alt-right nationalism. And some think Ivanka’s hubby Jared Kushner is just a Wall Street globalist.

The President is already sick of each team leaking and counterleaking, and Beltway types are wondering when he will decide that enough is enough. What do you think? If Trump had to say “you’re fired” to one of these three, who do you want to be the first to get the boot?

Just nine months ago, Jeremy Corbyn swept into the leadership of the British Labour Party, with an overwhelming 60% of the vote. Today, Labour MPs are trying desperately to force him out. Are they right to do so? Or should they have accepted the decision of the Labour electorate, and backed Corbyn to the bitter […]

paul-ryan-donald-trumpThough not held at Camp David or Reykjavik, the summit between presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan created nearly as much speculation as an ’80s arms-control treaty. Last week, Speaker Ryan said he was “just not ready” to endorse Trump, to which Trump responded he was “just not ready” to endorse Ryan’s legislative agenda.

But at a meeting today in DC, it was all smiles and happy talk, though light on substance. The dueling Republicans released an official statement that read like an early-stage UN negotiation:

After a week of conservatives issuing well-deserved congratulations to Cruz and Christie for counter-punching the CNBC debate moderators and hurling equally deserved recriminations at RNC chair Reince Priebus for creating the problem in the first place, the paleo-media and their champion President Obama have re-directed the narrative away from the shameful and biased behavior of the CNBC hosts […]

During a 2012 Republican primary debate, George Stephanopoulos asked Mitt Romney an obviously slanted if not altogether planted question about banning birth control. This mystified Romney since he had never even considered the issue as part of his platform. No major Republican had. But Stephanopoulos raised the issue and because of it, the GOP was forced to fight a two-year-long, imaginary “war on women.”

This talking point was later used by David Gregory on “Meet the Press” against Todd Akin whom handled it less articulately than Romney. But the fault in that did not lie with Stephanopoulos; it rested solely at the feet of the RNC for approving a former Clinton White House operative and still loyal Clinton acolyte to moderate a GOP debate.
