The billionaire Koch brothers’ war against Obama

n May 17th, a black-tie audience at the Metropolitan Opera House applauded as a tall, jovial-looking billionaire took the stage. It was the seventieth annual spring gala of American Ballet Theatre, and David H. Koch was being celebrated for his generosity as a member of the board of trustees; he had recently donated $2.5 million toward the company s upcoming season, and had given many millions before that. Koch received an award while flanked by two of the gala s co-chairs, Blaine Trump, in a peach-colored gown, and Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg, in emerald green. Kennedy s mother, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, had been a patron of the ballet and, coincidentally, the previous owner of a Fifth Avenue apartment that Koch had bought, in 1995, and then sold, eleven years later, for thirty-two million dollars, having found it too small.

The battles inside the GOP

This was a week in which the party's strengths and weaknesses competed for attention. Turnout in Tuesday's primaries showed Republicans energized and enthusiastic, far more so than the Democrats. If anything, Democrats are more pessimistic today about their prospects in November than they were two months ago. But the elections last week in Florida and Alaska also pointed to ideological differences and personal enmities that have played out in Republican primary battles all year and that threaten to leave scars and fissures within the party that will have to be dealt with later. Republicans have seen more turmoil in their ranks this year than Democrats, a sign of both robustness within the coalition and unresolved debates about the party's direction.

Building a Nation of Know-Nothings

The Democrats may deserve to lose in November. They have been terrible at trying to explain who they stand for and the larger goal of their governance. But if they lose, it should be because their policies are unpopular or ill-conceived not because millions of people believe a lie. In the much-discussed Pew poll reporting the spike in ignorance, those who believe Obama to be Muslim say they got their information from the media. But no reputable news agency that is, fact-based, one that corrects its errors quickly has spread such inaccuracies.

According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey, more than a quarter of the public have doubts about Obama's citizenship, with 11 percent saying Obama was definitely not born in the United States and another 16 percent saying the president was probably not born in the country.

Newt Gingrich, pushing prejudice at Ground Zero

Newt Gingrich, his doctorate notwithstanding, has offered us an illogical and ahistorical context to the ugly dispute about building an Islamic cultural center and mosque near Manhattan's Ground Zero. For a while, I thought that Sarah Palin and others would be the only ones to reap the political benefit of exploiting anti-Muslim sentiment, but Gingrich was not to be denied. With a preposterous solemnity, he expounded the schoolyard doctrine of tit for tat.

Four Deformations of the Apocalypse

IF there were such a thing as Chapter 11 for politicians, the Republican push to extend the unaffordable Bush tax cuts would amount to a bankruptcy filing. The nation s public debt if honestly reckoned to include municipal bonds and the $7 trillion of new deficits baked into the cake through 2015 - will soon reach $18 trillion. That s a Greece-scale 120 percent of gross domestic product, and fairly screams out for austerity and sacrifice. It is therefore unseemly for the Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell, to insist that the nation s wealthiest taxpayers be spared even a three-percentage-point rate increase.

Palin Wades Into Republican Midterm Primaries

'Sarah Palin has come on board,' the candidate, Karen Handel, told a group of supporters who gathered Friday on the grounds of the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse. As they broke into applause, she added: It means one thing. We re winning. Last week, Ms. Handel became at least the 50th candidate to win the Palin seal of approval. Through a breezy 194 words posted on Ms. Palin s Facebook page - calling Ms. Handel a 'pro-life, pro-Constitutionalist with a can-do attitude' - a four-way Republican primary came alive, the latest in a number of races across the country that have been influenced by Ms. Palin.

But straying from the standard-issue RNC talking points isn't how Republican presidential candidates roll.

Sarah Palin and the mutual loathing society

The Republican presidential nominee, an Arizona senator, was a maverick, which was part of his charm. He spoke and acted impulsively, which was part of his problem. Voters thought his entertaining dimensions might be incompatible with presidential responsibilities. For example, he selected a running mate most Americans had never heard of and who had negligible experience pertinent to the presidency. This was 1964.

GOP wary of pitfalls in Obama’s health care summit

WASHINGTON Even as Republicans publicly welcome President Barack Obama's call for a bipartisan confab on health care, some privately worry that he might be laying a trap to portray their ideas as flimsy. If so, a shaky showing by GOP leaders could possibly embolden congressional Democrats to make a final, aggressive push to overhaul the nation's health care system, with or without any Republican votes.

Palin Didn’t Pay Property Taxes on Cabins

Records show that Sarah Palin has not paid any property taxes on cabins that have been built on two backcountry plots in Alaska. It's unclear how long ago the structures were built, but records show that there are no tax assessments for the buildings. Property taxes were only paid on the land and not the structures themselves. The issue has attracted the attention of local tax officials who conducted a scheduled aerial survey of the property on Thursday.

With new book, Michael Steele turns the tables — again — on GOP

Poetic justice is a beautiful thing. Republican Party grandees were all set to use Michael Steele in the most cynical way. Now it's becoming clear that Steele has been using the users all along. Republicans must have thought that electing Steele as their national chairman was a brilliant stroke. The 2008 presidential election had been a debacle for them. The Democratic Party was on top of the world, with the first African American president taking office amid a national outpouring of goodwill. Among the mediocre field of contenders for the Republican National Committee job -- at that point, after all, who would want it? -- there was one intriguing option. Why not begin the process of rebranding and renewal by installing the first African American party chairman?

Why All This Fuss Over Sarah Palin

For someone who is closely involved in politics, I guess I am a rarity: I don t find Sarah Palin to be particularly interesting. I will be surprised if she runs for the GOP nomination in 2012; I would be more surprised if she wins it; and I would be shocked if she won the presidency. I have written before about why I don t think she is the future of the GOP, including the fact that rebuilding its reputation depends on emerging public figures who are conservative and principled, who radiate intellectual depth and calmness of purpose. Representative Paul Ryan, Governor Mitch Daniels, and former Governor Jeb Bush are the kinds of figures we need, and the campaign by Governor-elect Bob McDonnell are the kind Republicans should run.

A word from Matt Latimer

Matt Latimer deputy director of speechwriting for President George W. Bush has written a book called Speech*Less about his time in Washington, which also encompassed working for three Republican members of Congress. The book has received mixed reviews. For example, Ann Coulter raves about it, but Matt's former boss at the White House, Bill McGurn, panned the book in the Wall Street Journal (Matt responded here). My view, which I hope to express in a later post, falls somewhere in between. A mutual friend introduced me to Matt and, in the interest of promoting debate among conservatives, I asked Matt to write something about his book for Power Line. He agreed and has graciously provided me with the following: The editors of Power Line graciously have given me this opportunity to discuss my book, SPEECH*LESS: Tales of a White House Survivor. I am deeply appreciative, but I hope you'll bear with me while I discuss a little bit of breaking news - news which, unfortunately, makes my book an even more urgent read than it might have been before. For several years, Republican elites in the Bush White House urged conservatives like Vice President Dick Cheney to refrain from engaging the media (while they generously leaked to the press against people like ... well, Dick Cheney.) Now elements from this same group - led by Ed Gillespie and other former Karl Rove operatives - are telling talk-radio hosts, tea party attendees and other activists to shut up too. The strategists and pundits at the top of the GOP and their allies in the media think they have figured out the problem with the lowly state of their party. It's the conservatives' fault. Th
