Winning Issues That Aren't Just about 'Not Obama'

If you were a campaign manager for Republicans running for the Senate or House in November, what policy positions would you advise them to take? The Republican Party has been under a lot of criticism for running a campaign of "not Obama" rather than presenting a positive agenda - and much of this criticism is valid. That being said, it is far easier for those of us who are with policy organizations to give advice about what a candidate ought to say - because we don't take the direct hit if our policy ideas don't resonate with a majority of voters.

The WilliesHOW do You 'Run' Against a 3-Time Super Bowl Lineman?

When the invasion of the strategic Ukrainian region of Crimea was still imminent, I wrote that the first thing the Obama Administration should do in response is to reinstate the proposed defensive missile shield in Poland proposed by the Bush Administration but dropped by the Obama White House in 2009. The first to propose the same thing was U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, who told the New York Times a few days after the then-accomplished Russian invasion of the Crimea that he wanted "a review" of the antimissile plan.

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. But he'll also have to make sure that none of them gets so overloaded with ideological battles that they can't get 60 votes.

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.
