Indiana Republican Steve LaTourette Openly Supports Bribing Congressmen – Club for Growth

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

Club for Growth:

RINO Rep. Steve LaTourette (OH-14) openly supports bribing congressmen with earmarks.  He’s not even subtle about it.  From the Chicago Tribune:

Republican Representative Steven LaTourette, an 18-year House veteran, said the earmark ban “has affected discipline” within the party. “You can’t get 218 votes (out of 242 Republican House members) and part of that has to be if you can’t give people anything (earmarks), you can’t take anything away from them.”

If a member of Congress agrees with 90 percent of a pending bill but is “uncomfortable” with the other 10 percent, “Sometimes taking care of your district (with earmarks) made up for that 10 percent,” he said.
How is this not criminal?

Charlie Cook – Mitt Romney enters the general election in pretty good shape

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

Charlie Cook at The National Journal:

Even though presumptive nominee Mitt Romney has spent the last year and a half almost exclusively focused on currying favor with his party’s conservative base—quite often antagonizing other voters, including independents and swing voters—this race is very close. The RealClearPolitics average of recent polls shows a lead for President Obama of 3.1 percentage points, 47.6 percent to 44.5 percent. The Huffpost Pollster estimate is 2.2 percentage points, 47 percent to 44.8 percent.

[...]

The good news for Romney: The general-election campaign ads introducing him to voters and aiming to drive up his popularity with swing voters will undoubtedly shore up his standing among Republicans, too.
