Back in 2011, when Mitt Romney was in the starting months of his presidential campaign, he accepted an invitation to speak at the Values Voter Summit, an annual event organized by the Family Research Council. The VVS always attracts an assortment of far-right activists, but that year Romney was scheduled to speak directly before Bryan Fischer, an inflamatory American Family Association official and radio host who had viciously insulted everyone from LGBT people to women to Muslims to Native Americans to medal of honor recipients to Romney’s fellow Mormons. After facing a public outcry... MORE >

Religious Right leaders are intent on being the ones to pick the Republican presidential nominee this time around and they’re throwing their collective weight behind Ted Cruz. The movement’s leaders have been seething for eight years now that they were forced to rally behind Republican presidential candidates they weren’t excited about — John McCain in 2008 and Mitt Romney in 2012. After years of angling to prevent that from happening in 2016, “several dozen” Religious Right leaders met in secret in early December and voted to rally around Ted Cruz.... MORE >

Mitt Romney accidentally tells the truth about how his policies as governor of Massachusetts laid the groundwork for Obamacare. Rep. Greg Walden, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, says there should be an investigation into Tea Party groups that may be scamming donors.

Donald Trump is still trying to convince people that he might actually run for president this time, telling today’s Iowa Freedom Summit that he is “seriously thinking of running for president” because Romney “choked” and we “can’t have Bush.” After claiming that he was the first person to say that it wouldn’t be smart to nominate Jeb Bush because of George W. Bush’s legacy, Trump laid into Jeb Bush, criticizing him for his support for Common Core and his softening position on immigration. “He’s very, very weak on... MORE >

Potential Republican presidential candidates Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney are scheduled to have a private meeting today in Salt Lake City, Utah, and even though this is reportedly a social meeting that was planned months ago, well before either man made any sort of announcement about possibly running for president, Glenn Beck is pretty sure that something nefarious is afoot. Suggesting that Bush and Romney are somehow conspiring to undermine the Tea Party in the GOP presidential primary, Beck warned on his radio program today that "there is something really wrong in Utah." "There... MORE >

Every year since 2006, Republican leaders have joined some of the country’s most notorious anti-gay, anti-choice activists and fringe conspiracy theorists at the Family Research Council’s annual Values Voter Summit. This week’s summit will be no different, as potential GOP presidential contenders rub elbows with people who want to deny First Amendment protections to Muslims, defend laws criminalizing homosexuality, and think President Obama used the health care reform law to raise a private army of Brownshirts. Don’t be surprised if... MORE >

Texas Gov. Rick Perry ran his campaigns for governor in close alliance with Religious Right leaders in the state, and he launched his 2012 presidential bid with a prayer rally organized by dominionist leaders. All that makes it a bit surprising that the “Take Back America” survey sent out by Perry’s political action committee RickPAC today does not ask about abortion, gay rights, or religious liberty, the big three of Religious Right groups’ organizing and fundraising efforts. The email from Perry says “RickPAC is dedicated to electing conservatives who will work... MORE >

As we noted earlier this month, Glenn Beck has completely turned against Mitt Romney, claiming that he was nothing more than a progressive as he now asserts that he only voted for him because he had no other option. On his radio program today, Beck and his co-hosts were declaring that never again will they support a Republican presidential nominee that they don't agree with simply because they dislike that candidate less than the Democratic candidate, saying they've had to do so with every GOP nominee since Ronald Reagan, including Mitt Romney. Beck said that while he is not... MORE >
