“When Tom Coburn leaves the Senate at the end of this year, it may be a while before Washington sees someone like him – because Washington tries its hardest to keep out people like him.” – Washington Examiner

“Something has to change. Listen to me on this one. Something HAS to change. This can’t continue. It is not a sustainable model. There are millions of kids with no assets, no plans, and no purpose, taking out enormous loans to purchase a piece of paper they’ll likely never use. It can’t go on this way.” – Matt Walsh

The American left has learned the strategies of tyranny all too well. In the run-up to the 2012 election, the misnamed Democratic Party had their union cronies organize the malcontents of society into ‘Occupy Wall Street’ and set them loose on the public. With the media covering up their filth, violence and rapes, ‘Occupy’ distracted Americans from the looming threat of Obamacare and focused attention on ‘income inequality.’ At the same time, the Obama administration turned the IRS into a weapon of political repression and used it against law-abiding citizens to suppress their peaceful voices of dissent.” – Breitbart

“Conservatives distressed by a major federal court ruling Tuesday in favor of Obamacare should take heart: What might be an even more potent challenge to the law is scheduled for oral argument on January 28.” – Quin Hillyer/National Review

“Appearing on CNN’s ‘New Day’ on Friday, longtime Clinton adviser Philippe Reines also made the argument that Benghazi should not be an issue in the 2016 presidential race. Clinton is expected to run.” – Watchdog

“But for viewers who follow politics closely, especially for Republicans who desperately wanted to defeat Barack Obama, there is a revelation in ‘Mitt’ that is not just unexpected but deeply disheartening. At a critical moment in the campaign — the two weeks in October encompassing the first and second general election debates — the Romney portrayed in ‘Mitt’ struggled with a nagging pessimism and defeatism, unable to draw confidence even from a decisive initial debate victory over President Obama. Deep down inside, the Romney seen onscreen in ‘Mitt’ seems almost resigned to losing to Obama in those crucial showdowns.” – Washington Examiner

There are plenty of rich people in and around Dallas, as a walk down Euclid Avenue in Highland Park will confirm, but unlike in New York City’s Upper East Side or San Francisco’s Mission District, Dallas’s outdoor cafes and boutiques are deserted on a typical weekday afternoon: Dallas’s rich are in the main the working rich.” – Kevin Williamson/National Review

“President Obama’s latest claims about marijuana are contradicted by research and official positions of the Office of National Drug Control Policy, which is part of the White House. And Mr. Obama’s words have anti-drug leaders worried about negative repercussions among youth.” – Washington Times

“Politically, it might be another matter. She’s trying to market herself as a crusading truth-teller for women’s rights in a benighted state. It doesn’t help when your autobiography turns out to be as fact-challenged as Davis’ for that sales pitch. Her divorce from her second husband as he paid off her Harvard bill doesn’t look too meritorious, either, even if he’s still supportive of her as a person and candidate. Instead of being a crusading truth-teller, Davis looks a lot more like an untrustworthy opportunist … like many politicians.” – Hot Air

“Jeff Davis said that was right around the time the final payment on their Harvard Law School loan was due. ‘It was ironic,’ he said. ‘I made the last payment, and it was the next day she left.’” – Dallas Morning News
