Perry's Dramatic Fade Shapes GOP Nomination Race
BOONE, Iowa -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry can still fill a room with his Texas swagger and frontier good looks. But Perry may have exerted his greatest influence on the 2012 GOP race through a vacuum he has created -- a dynamic that is powerfully shaping the Iowa caucuses now hurtling toward Tuesday’s vote.

"You may have seen all over Des Moines the Barack Obama re-election advance team is already out there in the various parking lots of all of the campaigns," Bachmann told about 70 volunteers. "This tells you that he is nervous," she continued.

▪ Herman Cain won’t make an Iowa

If you remember your ancient Republican history – about four weeks ago – you’ll remember that Herman Cain, as he bowed out of the race, strongly hinted that he would make an endorsement in the presidential contest. But we haven’t heard much from Cain since, and the plains of Iowa loom.

Several times during Cain’s final rough patch, Newt Gingrich spoke up for his Atlanta comrade-in-arms. Each cited a friendship that stretched back decades. They even staged that love fest in Houston for Texan tea partyists. But also remember that Cain endorsed former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney in the 2008 campaign.

By way of straightening things out, my AJC colleague Jeremy Redmon shot an e-mail to Mark Block, who remains Cain’s chief of staff. Here is the response: There are no plans currently to endorse any of the candidates. Keep in touch

Taxes can be raised and lowered. Regulations can be removed (though they rarely are). Attorneys general and Cabinet members can be fired. Laws can be repealed. Even Supreme Court justices eventually die.

The Forgotten Man by Jon McNaughton

Click on above to view this most impressive painting video.

What has President Obama done? Visit:

Against the background of a darkening sky, all of the past Presidents of the United States gather before the White House, as if to commemorate some great event. In the left hand corner of the painting sits a man. That man, with his head bowed appears distraught and hopeless as he contemplates his future. Some of the past Presidents try to console him while looking in the direction of the modern Presidents as if to say, "What have you done?" Many of these modern Presidents, seemingly oblivious to anything other than themselves, appear to be congratulating each other on their great accomplishments. In front of the man, paper trash is blowing in the wind. Crumpled dollar bills, legislative documents, and, like a whisper—the U.S. Constitution beneath the foot of Barack Obama.

By of the Telegraph - December 21st, 2011

   Gingrich and his wife have prioritised book signings over campaigning

. . . The problem is over-exposure. Two weeks ago, Gingrich’s conservative “fresh ideas” were limited to 30 second sound-bites in the debates. Since then he has been allowed to elaborate on them in interviews. It didn’t take long for the Great Thinker to evolve into the Great Windbag, throwing out the kind of policy positions that sound clever at three in the morning over a bottle of rye but sound absurd when discussed in the sober light of primetime TV. . . .

Ed comment: Young wife #3 Callista, who is 24 years younger than Newt, seems to be with him EVERYWHERE he goes. This could be a constant reminder of Newt's personal baggage.

► Justice Department Approves Georgia's Redistricting Maps
Click on letter to enlarge
For your information, the Justice Department has approved Georgia's congressional maps. This means that the maps as drawn have become the permanent maps for Georgia until the next U.S. Census in 2020.  Again, you may recall that at the last census (2000), the Democrat drawn maps were rejected by the courts, and remained in litigation for five full years until the courts redrew them in 2005.
From the perspective that Republicans were in charge of the process of drawing U.S. Congressional Districts for the first time in Georgia, and that the maps were approved without change on the first pass, this is a major success story for the Republican Party and the Republican controlled Georgia legislature.
That's good news for Georgia Republicans!
Merry Christmas!

I hope you will join me this week in praying for our country's future.  We are at a crossroads in our nation's history and need to work together to ensure prosperity for generations to come.  


Please pray for our brave men and women in uniform who are working to protect us at home and abroad.  Their service to this country is often forgotten and we must always remember to say "thank you" to our American heroes. 


And finally, thank you for your support of my campaign for Congress.  Election Day is still many months away, but I am certain that with your help, we can take Washington back and put this country on the right track!

RNC is back in the black
Washington Post  12/21/2011
T.W. Farnam

The Republican National Committee has more money in the bank than debt to creditors for the first time in more than a year.

The committee raised $7.2 million in November, leaving it with $14.1 million in the bank and $13.4 million in debt, according to a disclosure report filed Tuesday evening.

The RNC outpaced the Democratic National Committee, which raised $6.7 million last month. That’s all the more noteworthy since the DNC benefited from $2.8 million raised by President Obama. The DNC had $10.5 million in the bank and $7.8 million in debt.

“Heading into 2012, the RNC will be operating from a position of significant fiscal strength,” chairman Reince Priebus said in a written statement. “The combination of Republican voters’ enthusiasm and the RNC’s robust fundraising makes me confident that we have a winning year ahead of us.”

The committee had struggled financially under the stewardship of former chairman Michael Steele. Major donors abandoned the party after a series of revelations about lavish expenses, and the committee was saddled with more than $20 million in debt.

The last time it reported more cash than debt was August 2010.

Obama To Clinton: "You're A Racist." Clinton Calls Obama: "The Worst President Ever."

Only one week after reporting that Michelle Obama may be having a "steamy secret affair" with a Secret Service agent, The Globe has just unleashed another bombshell that may very well sink the foundering Obama Regime.  According to the Globe, long-standing tensions between Barack Obama and Bill Clinton reached the boiling point during a recent golf outing at Andrews Air Force Base.

According to multiple unnamed sources, Clinton has been confiding to close pals that Obama is "the worst President ever" and his presidency is a "sinking ship" that is "taking the Democratic party and the country down with him," and when Obama confronted him on the comments, Clinton looked him in the eye and said; "Yes, it's a fact."  The Globe reports: "At that point, the source adds, Obama went ballistic and told the ex-Prez; 'Then you are a racist and no different than the rest of them.'"  Read more

Take a moment and watch our Christmas video message, from myself, my family, supporters, and friends across this great nation of ours. As we experience the joys of Christmas this year, let us not forget the birth of Christ and what it means to mankind. I urge you to seek out and offer help and kindness to family, friends and those around us who are less fortunate, perhaps hungry and struggling through these harsh economic times. And a special prayer goes out to our brave soldiers, some far away from home this holiday season, and our hopes they return safely to their families. It is their sacrifice which has ensured all Americans the gift of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; and we could not be more in debt, nor appreciative of their service. This is our family's favorite time of year and we wish you and your loved ones all the best in this lovely, forgiving and peaceful season. Have a great holiday and fantastic New Year.

Cain shared the idea with ABC's Barbara Walters during her annual special on the "10 Most Fascinating People." And the veteran journalist was just a bit surprised. (

Romney Calls Gingrich 'Zany' 


Wednesday, 14 Dec 2011 06:50 PM  By Paul Scicchitano of NewsMax

Trailing in the polls with less than three weeks to go before the Iowa caucuses, presidential hopeful Mitt Romney today sought to distance himself from former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, telling an interviewer, “Zany is not what we need in a president.”

His remarks to The New York Times appear to mark a further ratcheting up of Romney’s campaign rhetoric against Gingrich, whose lead as the GOP frontrunner continues to widen for the Jan. 3 caucuses.

“Zany is great in a campaign. It’s great on talk radio. It’s great in print, it makes for fun reading,” Romney says. “But in terms of a president, we need a leader, and a leader needs to be someone who can bring Americans together.”

Kevin R. Powell Announces Challenge to Placement of Obama on
  Georgia Ballot
  - Monday, December 12, 2011

DULUTH – Mr. Kevin R. Powell of Duluth, Georgia announced today that he has filed with the Office of Secretary of State Brian Kemp a challenge to the placement of the name of Barack Obama on the Georgia ballot for the Presidency of the United States of America. Submitted to Secretary Kemp’s office as of November 28, 2011, Powell’s challenge has now been referred to the Georgia Office of State Administrative Hearings for further proceedings. The case is styled Kevin Richard Powell v. Barack Obama, and the Office of State Administrative Hearings’ Docket Number is OSAH-SECSTATE-CE-1216823-60-MALIHI.

Powell’s challenge to Obama’s placement on the Georgia ballot is based upon the contention that Obama does not satisfy the "natural born Citizen" requirement of Article II, Section I, Clause 5 of the United States Constitution. Obama’s father, Barack Obama, Sr., was a native of Kenya and a British subject who never became a United States citizen.

Powell will be represented before the Office of State Administrative Hearings by attorney J. Mark Hatfield of the law firm Hatfield & Hatfield, P.C. in Waycross, Georgia.

Athens says goodbye to UGA's biggest fan, greatest storyteller -
  Larry Munson -
December 10, 2011

ATHENS -- Larry Munson died wearing a Georgia T-shirt that read "Go Dawgs" -- proof that even though the famous announcer didn't enter life as a Bulldog fan, he left that way.

On Saturday, 3,500 mourners attended a memorial on the 50-yard line of Sanford Stadium for the beloved broadcaster, who was 89 when he died Nov. 20 of complications from pneumonia. Munson was the voice of the Georgia Bulldogs for 42 years and wanted the service held in the stadium, his son Michael Munson said.

Friends and family members shared memories of Munson, who in addition to loving the Bulldogs also enjoyed hunting, fishing and going to movies. He always gave people nicknames, said his son Jonathan, who pressed his lips together tightly and fought back tears recalling that for some reason, Dad always called him "Josh."  Read more


Free media helping to define US presidential race

   Wall Street Journal - Dec. 10, 2011

NEW YORK — From late-night comedy shows to cable news interviews, free media exposure has proved influential in defining the Republican presidential candidates and setting the dynamics of the primary race, especially for lower-tier hopefuls lacking cash for TV ads.

The turn toward free media, and Twitter, too, may have come at the expense of traditional campaigning. It also raises the chances that a moment of fuzzy thinking or a verbal gaffe will haunt a candidate endlessly in the YouTube world.

State of Georgia Special Election Runoff  - December 06, 2011


What a shame to spend so much tax payer money on two voting days for this race where so few people turned out to vote.  Why the governor's special appointment for Rep. James Millis could not have been made next year and this seat filled in a regular election year is beyond comprehension.  

BTW, just opened my mail and found a campaign fundraiser letter from the Governor for the year 2014??  I shall be glad to donate a small amount to the GA GOP, RNC, and two candidates in the year 2012, but NOT Governor Deal.  We  just elected him last year !!   Is it possible to ask for a refund of my contributions from his 2010 campaign ;- ) ? I very foolishly donated more money to Deal's campaign than any other candidate EVER which was a huge mistake. If I had known then what I know now, that would not have happened. I could really use that money right now since my husband is very ill with cancer.  His several doctors, meds and tests are very expensive and will only get worse.   Bettye Chambers

Here's Hoping Herman Cain Will Stay In the Race
  By She is the niece of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther  
   Published December 02, 2011 -

In the 15th Century, “Lady Justice” was introduced wearing a blindfold. Her sightlessness was meant to represent objectivity, in that justice is or should be meted out without fear or favor, regardless of identity, money, power or weakness. Blind justice and impartiality should be the goal. Enter 21st century politics, where you find justice thrown under the proverbial bus, along with a presidential candidate.

Herman Cain joined the race for the Republican nomination with a goal of leading the nation into a better quality of life, for, in his words, “my grandchildren and for the generations to come.”  Read more.

Share Your Story With Me! 
a message from Herman CAIN - December 2, 2011

Dear Friends and Supporters,

I recently wrote asking for your prayers and support regarding my campaign for the Presidency.

I have been touched by the outpouring of encouragement that you, my friends and most loyal supporters, have provided to me, my family, and my campaign staff. Over the last couple of days we have received numerous emails, text messages, and phone calls urging me to press onward and stay in the race.

Every word of support is sincerely appreciated.  

As the media has reported, my team and I are assessing my campaign and my candidacy.  We have had similar meetings multiple times during my campaign journey.  As any good businessman, I want to analyze and understand my strengths and weaknesses, upcoming opportunities, and current threats.

One of the greatest strengths of my campaign has always been my loyal supporters.  From the beginning of my campaign (when I had nearly no name ID), my supporters have been committed and enthusiastic about a Cain presidency. They believe in my ideas to put America back to work, my bold “9-9-9 Plan” for economic recovery, my vision for energy independence, and my “Cain Doctrine” for foreign policy, which focuses on Peace through Strength and Clarity.

As I assess the future of my campaign, I need to gauge the support of the people of this great nation.

I am inviting you to share your voice with me, my family and staff, and the nation. In short, I need to know that you are behind me 100%.  In today’s political environment, the only way we can gauge true support is by the willingness of our supporters to invest in this effort. 

Will you invest by sharing your personal story with me? I need to hear why you chose to become a Cain supporter and how you feel I can help this nation by serving as President. Please send a short video or email to: to tell me your story.

There are three audiences in a political campaign: The media, the political establishment, and the people. The first two never gave our campaign much credence, but the people of this great nation showed their eagerness for a non-establishment candidate with common sense solutions and the courage to lead. I chose to listen to the people, which is what I will do if I am elected your President.

Please share your story with me. And please consider making a generous donation to my campaign.  I need to know if you are still beside me in this battle. Please let me hear from you today. Thank you.


Herman Cain

This weekend, our longtime friend Martha Zoller officially kicked off her campaign for congress in her own hometown of Gainesville, GA. We welcome her decision to run for office, something people have been asking her to do for years and, because we know she supports the troops, we pledge our support to her candidacy.

Martha's kickoff  event was well attended by veterans, military families, tea partiers and radio listeners, as she is a household name in the community.

"Every morning for the past 15 years, folks have turned on their radio and heard Martha's conservative message. People already know what she stands for." said her campaign manager Ryan Mahoney at the rally in downtown Gainesville.

At MAF we look for candidates who support the troops, that's our most important issue, and we know that Martha is a huge supporter of our military and their missions to keep America safe and free.
She's so committed that she's traveled to Iraq TWICE to help the troops and Gold Star families that she cares for so much!

Presidential Preference Primary for Georgia set for Tuesday,
March 6, 2012

ecretary of State Brian Kemp has announced that Georgia’s 2012 presidential preference primary will be held on Tuesday, March 6, 2012.  Secretary Kemp was given the authority to set the presidential primary date via a modification to Georgia’s statutory code during the 2011 legislative session. Substantial rules changes by the RNC leading up to the 2012 Republican National Convention resulted in states that are “winner-take-all” states like Georgia not having the ability to hold their primaries without losing ½ of their potential delegates if the primary was held before April 1, 2012.

Behind the scenes, much planning and labor was completed by the Georgia Republican Party to facilitate this decision. Secretary Kemp worked closely with party leaders prior to his formal announcement. The GAGOP Rules Committee and State Committee convened to approve a rule change that allowed the Secretary Kemp the flexibility necessary to ensure that Georgia voters would remain a strong voice in the 2012 primary process as we select our next President.

Prior to the rules change, Georgia was a winner-take-all system and would have lost ½ of its delegates to the Republican National Convention in Tampa if the primary was held before April 1, 2012. The proposed change to the GAGOP allows Georgia’s delegates to be allotted on a proportional basis if the Georgia primary was held before April 1, 2012.

The GAGOP commends Secretary of State Brian Kemp for his efforts and diligence in the selection of March 6, 2012 as the presidential preference primary date in Georgia.

GOP sweep named top Ga. story of 2010

Base bails on Democrats in droves
By Chris Joyner - AJC
Georgia Democrats enter the upcoming 2011 session of the General Assembly reeling from a series of defections and facing an uphill climb toward relevance. The once-dominant party holds 85 of 236 seats in the House and Senate, Democrats’ lowest ebb since Reconstruction. And the number has been slipping. Read entire article
