Quote of the Day: Conservatives don't trust Mitt Romney

10/12/11 12:53PM

Ed Rollins, former campaign manager for Michele Bachmann: “I think Romney has never quite made the sale. There’s just something there. Although I think he’s had some good debates, and I think he may very well end up being the nominee, but at the end of the day it’s not over yet. Republicans are not sold on him, and we’re traditionally a party that takes the next guy in line.Joe Scarborough: “Conservatives don’t trust him, do they?”Rollins: “They don’t trust him, and to a certain extent he may be more in tune with his views today with the conservative party than he was…but they’re not there.” read more

SOMETHING'S HAPPENING HERE BY THOMAS FRIEDMANNEW YORK TIMESYes, corporations now have access to more cheap software…labor and genius than ever. So holding a job takes more talent.

Quote of the Day: Some on the right missing Jesus' message

10/11/11 02:51PM

Joe Scarborough: “I don’t usually do this, but I am going to do it now because it seems that Christianity is constantly being thrown into primary debates. It happened again this past weekend. And how fascinating that despite the fact that many on the right have brought religion up over the past 30, 40 years, they somehow missed the core of Jesus’ message? Jesus was asked…by his disciples ‘Who is getting to heaven? How do we sit on the right hand of the father?’ This is what Jesus Christ said.

NAKED IN MASSACHUSETTS BY FRANK BRUNI NEW YORK TIMES A sense of humor is the first casualty of any fiercely fought campaign. And Brown vs. Warren (if she gets the nomination) will be one of 2012’s fiercest. His victory in a special election in early 2010 not only stunned but galled Democrats: a photogenic, ineloquent upstart took the seat left vacant by the death of Ted Kennedy, the roaring liberal lion of the Senate. read more
