Thompson and Pataki Won’t Run but GOP Can Still Take Senate


In disappointing news for Republicans, Tommy Thompson and George Pataki have decided against running for Senate in Wisconsin and New York respectively. The latter appears to have turned down the challenge so he can lay the groundwork for a 2012 presidential bid—which shows that Pataki is so out-of-touch with reality that he did his party [...]

The Weapons-Grade Stupidity of Obama’s Nuclear Policy


On “Hannity” last night, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich excoriated the Obama Administration’s announcement that nuclear retaliation is off the table against rogue states that attack us, as long as those states aren’t themselves nuclear, and that the United States will not develop any new nuclear weapons:
