ABC senior White House correspondent Jake Tapper discusses politics, from inside the beltway to the GOP campaigning in the Sunshine State.
Obama`s speech in spite of what you said was a success. 37 mllion people watched and of those people 91% of the people approved of what he said.You are obviously drinking the GOP kool aid.
Obama simply doesn't deserve (hasn't earned) a second term. The other side (R) hasn't offered a better alternative. Sad state of affairs.
Nah. Criticism of Romney for acknowledging positive movement in the economy seems unfair, for this does not ipso facto mean citizens aren't still suffering badly. But perhaps he should have also explicitly ackowldeged this too.
i now have a modicum of respect for Romney for admitting the truth.
Shouldn't Romney get some credit for actually saying something that was true - that the economy is getting better, while putting his argument that it should have gotten better faster. We keep criticising politicians for avoiding saying anything accurate - Romney has in this case - and I say this as a liberal
What popped out to me was that Gingrich has gone from calling Romney a moderate to actually calling him a liberal! Any chance that'll fly w/Republican voters?
And everything he accuses his opponents of in terms of the ads they run is exactly his own M.O. A Freudian would call it projection.
Please help. What IS a Conservative?? I don't think I am one but I would actually like to know what one is, what they believe, how I would recognize one? Are they all Republicans?
Thanks for Jake Tapper…it’s been awhile!A nice change from the usual NPR/Slate/Salon drones and he is the only believable figure in the gaggle of Barry Obama apologists in the mainstream media. Though a Democrat, he actually asks tough questions of the One and his flacks.
Of course, how can you not chuckle at a guy who once dated Monica Lewinsky before she was famous?
He also once perfectly captured the different character of the two political sides so well when stating: "I get a lot of heat from the right, too, but the vitriol is from the left."
