Just when you thought Barack Obama couldn’t get any more out of touch with America’s values, AP reports his administration wants to make foreign aid decisions based on gay rights. …This administration’s war on traditional American values must stop.
A statement by Rick Perry • Criticizing President Obama over a memorandum he issued today, which stated broad support for advancing LGBT rights and protecting them from violence. It explicitly mentions the efforts of foreign governments to criminalize LGBT persons (the state of affairs in Uganda the last few years being one such galling example), and states that foreign aid will be directed to promote LGBT human rights. Rick Perry (clearly attempting to spark some momentum for his flat-lined bid for the GOP presidential nomination), decided to pounce, saying further: “Investing tax dollars promoting a lifestyle many Americas of faith find so deeply objectionable is wrong. President Obama has again mistaken America’s tolerance for different lifestyles with an endorsement of those lifestyles. I will not make that mistake.” source (viafollow)

Apocalypse now? Donald Trump is going to moderate a debate.
Who would show up for such a thing? Likely everybody.

Though presidential candidates may initially balk at the idea of  appearing in a debate where Mr. Trump – with his bombast and The Hair –  is the one posing the questions, they may ultimately see it as an  invitation they can’t refuse. In fact many of the candidates have  already met with him, some more publicly than others. Representative Michele Bachmann has sat down with Mr. Trump several times this year. Gov. Rick Perry of Texas had dinner with him at Jean Georges, the posh Manhattan restaurant. And Mitt Romney paid a visit but carefully avoided being photographed.
And Newsmax is a powerful player itself. It has a broad reach into the conservative base, with monthly  Web traffic second only to Fox News among sites with  conservative-leaning audiences.


Looks like our post-Christmas plans just got a little crazy.

swagandpassion says: So has Ron Paul dropped out or just not receiving any major media attention? The GOP race is perplexing to me. It would seem Ron Paul would have more traction with independents and disillusioned democrats versus Newt, Mitt, or Rick. Just curious.

» SFB says: As usual, he’s getting ignored for candidates with more issues and character flaws. However, he got some pretty good attention today for this attack ad he targeted at Newt Gingrich. There are definitely some plus sides to a Paul campaign for Dems (his anti-war stances especially), but the media at large (minus Jon Stewart) hasn’t really been giving him a chance. Why is that? (By the way, highly recommend reading the Ron Paul Tumblr tag. It shows how passionate people are for and against him.) — Ernie @ SFB

Michele Bachmann just criticized Rick Perry’s stance on aid to Pakistan, suggesting the Texas governor’s thirst to cut off the money would increase the chance of nuclear weapons falling into the hands of terrorists, and making their way to the United States.

Nancy Pelosi’s joking reply to Rick Perry’s challenge — Perry asked Pelosi to debate him on “my Overhaul Washington plan, versus the congressional status quo.” Why on earth Pelosi would even consider engaging in a voluntary debate with a faltering GOP presidential candidate while she’s the Democratic Minority Leader is beyond us, and apparently beyond her. Also, Rick Perry wants more debates?
