Kevin McCarthy on Iran Nuclear Deal: CAUTION

Kevin McCarthy Face the Nation

House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy on Face the Nation Sunday said he “would caution the Obama administration from overselling” the deal Secretary Kerry just brokered with Iran adding that it is anything but a full dismantling of the nuclear program. He went on to say “When you have friends and allies inside the region strongly opposed to it, I would caution; and I agree that we should move forward with the sanctions in the Senate. Remember who we’re dealing with. We’re dealing with Iran. They are one of the top supporters of terrorism around the world and this is providing them resources and money. We should not take this lightly.”

Beer Bong Politics in the Age of Social Media

Beer Bong Congressman Stewart Mills

Where we once gasped and or laughed at photos of our elected officials smoking cigarettes or appearing inebriated; I do believe the future will reveal much more.

George W Bush with Leno on Tonight Show (VIDEO)

George W Bush Leno Tonight Show

President George W. Bush made a rare public appearance Tuesday night as he and Former First Lady Laura Bush paid a visit to Jay Leno and The Tonight Show. At first glance, it is clear to see the former president is doing well and looks extremely comfortable in his role as “former president.” The tone of the interview was extremely lighthearted and only made a quasi-serious turn as Bush talked about his passion projects in Africa and working with wounded veterans.

Kelly Ayotte on Meet the Press: Obamacare a “Mess”

Kelly Ayotte

Kelly Ayotte was tasked with countering Nancy Pelosi Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press. Nice gig if you can get it. And the New Hampshire Senator opened by saying the Democrat-driven signature piece of legislation “was a mess.” Not surprisingly, host David Gregory was quick to push back by asking Senator Ayotte what Republicans are proposing as an alternative. To my dismay, Ayotte’s response was somewhat lacking. Truth be told, she offered almost nothing. Sprinkling in a few token talking points and a healthy dose of pandering to the notion of bipartisanship, she rather effectively made the case that libs are desperately making in an attempt to defend Obamacare – “Republicans have no plan.”

Romney Campaign Gave VP Shortlist Fish Names

Chris Christie Puffer Fish

It seems adviser Harriet Myers was determined to prevent leaks and protect the campaign against “Chinese hackers”, so she devised a code for speaking about the names on the short list. Here’s the list (somewhat interesting): Kelly Ayotte, John Cornyn, Chris Christie, Mitch Daniels, Bill Frist, Mike Huckabee, Bob McDonnell, Tim Pawlenty, Rob Portman, Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan; and the code name given to those that survived the next cut Christie (Pufferfish), Pawlenty (Lakefish), Portman (Filet o Fish), Rubio (Pescado) and Ryan (Fishconsin).

Marsha Blackburn Kathleen Sebelius Obamacare

Tennessee Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn’s place on the House Energy and Commerce Committee put her in prime position Wednesday to address the concerns of her constituents and question HHS (Health and Human Services) Director Kathleen Sebelius about the failed roll-out of the ACA (Affordable Care Act) website. “Some people like to drive a Ford not a Ferrari, and some people like to drink out of a red solo cup, not a crystal stem.”
