Emma Dumain,  Roll Call

President Barack Obama has said he won’t make sweeping changes to immigration policy until after the midterm elections in order to protect vulnerable Democrats in tight races, but House Republicans don’t want to wait to see what the president has up his sleeve. Continue reading

Barack Obama has done many dastardly things to Republicans. He regularly ridicules their arguments. He insists on being treated as though he were legitimately the president of the United States.

Republicans Are Celebrating Too Soon

Admitting the problem is always the first step in any rehabilitation process. And in the aftermath of Mitt Romney’s defeat in the 2012 presidential election, Republicans across the country were doing just that. Among the GOP’s elected officials, strategists, and activists, there was widespread acknowledgment that the Republican Party suffered from a disease that would not quickly be cured.

Obama and The Democrats Plot To Control America

Barack Obama’s presidency will come to an end.  The legacy of pain he will leave behind will not — at least for years to come. He and his fellow Democrats plan to keep their grip on the levers of power-even if they lose control of Congress and the White House. And they will do so with “invisible hands” gone but not forgotten.

Every first-term president has a single compelling desire: to win a second term.  But for Obama and his liberal allies to accomplish a second major goal, to “fundamentally transform America,” requires more than two terms. Their agenda depends on fundamentally transforming our government and how its vast powers will be deployed.

How was this done?

Rand Paul: Republicans Need to Soften on Social Issues

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is warning Republicans that if they expect to be relevant in the future and grow the party they will have to soften on social issues.

In an interview with vocativ.com, Paul said he had “sort of a Jeffersonian belief in unity, peace and commerce with all” and that the best way to build the GOP for the future is to include people with whom they don’t agree on every issue.

Dmitriy Shapiro,  JWR

In striking a more libertarian tone than in previous years, the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) might be taking the constituency represented by its sponsor, the American Conservative Union (ACU), down a path that is alienating to some in the Jewish community.

According to some observers, the March 6-8 conference’s apparent toning down of foreign policy concerns certainly played to the base of U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who won the annual gathering’s straw poll of presidential contenders for the second straight year, but could prove a liability in the effort to win over moderate Jewish voters for the Republican Party.

Changing America: Gay marriage finds support at conservatives meeting

Attitudes on same-sex marriage are shifting among conservatives, echoing Americans’ changing views. Republicans have long been identified as staunch foes, leading congressional as well as campaign battles against the idea. But at this week’s Conservative Political Action Conference in this Washington suburb, it was commonplace to hear activists explain same-sex marriage is not a matter for political debate.

Part of the reason is political reality _ Republicans are eager not to be seen as an intolerant party _ and they sense the traditional marriage side is losing. “We keep fighting this battle and we’re not getting anywhere. Politicians are afraid of it,” said Portland, Ore.-based conservative talk show host Lars Larson. The most obvious signal of conservative acceptance: GOProud, a group of gay and straight conservatives, was invited to the conference this year as guests after being turned down in the past.
