Paul Ryan Complains About Conservative Media, Praises Obama

Rep. Paul Ryan tsk-tsked conservative media for "coarsening our debate" and vowed to "do my small part" to keep things civil before spontaneously praising President Obama's recent foreign policy decisions. In an interview for Meet the Press 's "Press Pass" segment, Ryan and new host Chuck Todd might have been mistaken for being on a "No Labels" panel discussion as they both lamented how politicians are rewarded in "advocacy media outlets" for bold rhetoric and standing firm in their positions.

Wisc. GOP candidate now regrets tweeting 'fags need 2 leave my favorite state alone'

A 19-year-old candidate for the Wisconsin state Assembly has apologized for a Christmas Day tweet referring to gays as "fags," according to LGBTQNation . Jacob Dorsey, who is running for the assembly seat representing the 44th District, claims he used the offensive word out of frustration after a U.S. Court of Appeals refused to issue a stay in a federal court ruling last year striking down Utah's ban on same-sex marriage.

Senate chairmen in a GOP majority

Fresh from his narrow win in Mississippi over tea party challenger Chris McDaniel, Cochran will be under pressure to load up the appropriations bills with as many challenges to the Obama administration as possible.

Valadao, Renteria differences murky

Remember In November: John Kasich Still Clueless On Health Care After All These Years

If the Wizard of Westerville is really the messiah of reform he claims to be, you would have thought by now, after a lifetime in and around government, he would have figured out what is really unbalancing America's budget. And contrary to accepted political folklore by the GOP and its candidates for office, like Gov. John Kasich, it's not spending on social safety net benefit programs like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

Paul Krugman exposes the "con men" behind "the inflation cult"

In his latest volley in the war against the war against inflation, celebrated liberal economist and best-selling author Paul Krugman tries to analyze "the inflation cult," a loosely affiliated group of pundits and academics who, Krugman says, are being duped by "con men" into believing hyper-inflation is just around the corner. The conclusions he reaches are pretty scary.

The country is shifting right and looking for a strong commander in chief

A variety of data points suggest that while Republicans are riding a wave of anti-Obama opinion, the collapse of President Obama's foreign policy and international chaos are shifting the electorate toward pro-defense candidates who can reassure a nervous public. House Budget Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan speaks at the Conservative Political Action Committee conference in National Harbor, Md., on March 6. We have seen the data showing that the GOP now holds a double-digit lead over Democrats on national security, while the president's standing on national security has plunged to the low 30s.
