Obama’s May 23 policy speech, which urged an end to the broad war powers Congress approved to fight al-Qaeda after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, was portrayed by Republicans as a lack of resolve in the face of terrorism threats worldwide.
“At a time when we need resolve the most, we are sounding retreat,” Senator Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican, said on the “Fox News Sunday” program. “Our enemies are emboldened all over the planet. Al-Qaeda in Iraq is coming back with a vengeance.”
The president said he would curtail drone strikes and push for an eventual closing of the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba. The speech called for a ratcheting-down of the war on terrorism, with Obama saying that the U.S. may be drawn into more wars unless the nation moderates its stance.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Obama, as well as the Republican Bush administration, failed to talk honestly about the scope of the global threat posed by terrorism. The president’s speech missed the mark, he said.
(CNSNews.com) – Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) nominated former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) to replace current Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) in a closed-door meeting of House Republicans on Wednesday.
Gohmert reportedly felt it was time to halt “business as usual” in Congress. His nomination of Gingrich did not receive a second and House Republicans voted to retain Boehner as speaker.

While Sarah Palin has made it concretely clear that she’s opposed to President Barack Obama’s re-election, the former governor of Alaska has not yet offered a formal endorsement of the presumptive Republican nominee for president.
Palin — the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, who admitted to voting for Newt Gingrich during the GOP primary — said earlier this year that she would support Romney “100 percent” if he became the nominee.
But she hasn’t been very enthusiastic about supporting the former Massachusetts governor since he clinched the nod.
“I honestly believe that anybody running on a GOP ticket would be infinitely better than what we have today, with these failed socialist policies,” Palin said on NBC’s “Today” show in April — after it was clear that Romney would be the nominee.

AP – March 9, 2012: Rick Santorum greets supporters during a rally in Topeka, Kan.
Rick Santorum swept to victory in the Kansas Republican presidential caucuses Saturday, marking his strongest caucus finish yet but still struggling to make a dent in Mitt Romney’s delegate lead.
With all precincts reporting, Santorum dominated the race with 51 percent support. Romney trailed with 21 percent, followed by Newt Gingrich with 14 percent. Ron Paul was in last place with 13 percent.
Of Kansas’ total haul of 40 delegates, Santorum picked up 33. He won another three in the latest round of voting out of Wyoming.

Rick Santorum’s supporters, the morning after their candidate hung tough and pulled out three Super Tuesday victories, began to apply serious pressure to Newt Gingrich to bow out of the presidential race — arguing the former speaker is standing in the way of a fair fight between Santorum and Mitt Romney.
The super PAC supporting the former Pennsylvania senator claimed Wednesday that Santorum — who was overshadowed by Romney’s victories in Ohio and five other states — would have had a much bigger night had it not been for Gingrich’s presence. Gingrich kept his campaign alive by winning Georgia Tuesday.

While college basketball teams and fans prepare to be swept away in the fanatical celebration that has come to be known as March Madness another competition is already underway and about to get a bit more intense.
Super Tuesday is set to kick off tomorrow in 10 states across the nation. The competition is, of course, a heated contest between the 4 GOP candidates: Former Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney, Former Senator Rick Santorum, Texas Congressman Ron Paul and Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.
Coming off of this weekend’s Washington caucus it appears that Romney has the momentum. However, he will be involved in several slug fests in the south for sure and potentially Ohio will be a tight race as well.
Ron Paul gained momentum in Washington as well, besting Santorum by 1%. The momentum of the Paul campaign has been solidly gaining over the past four years and continues to grow as his message resonates with voters.
Rick Santorum, according to the Romney campaign, “flunked” a test of organizational strength. Santorum didn’t file complete slates of delegates in Tennessee or Ohio and he failed to get on the ballot in Virginia and the District of Columbia. With all of this, at the present he looks to give Romney a run for his money in this race.
