1. He’s Part of the Middle Class (or He Actually Shops at Kohl’s and Sears)
It was after Walker spoke at the Iowa Freedom Summit in January that his popularity began to soar outside of Wisconsin. As much as anything else, I think what resonated with the crowd and those who watched the speech on C-SPAN or online is when he spoke about shopping at Kohl’s:
But years ago as newlyweds I made a critical mistake. I went to a Kohl’s Department Store and I bought something for the price it was marked at. Right? My wife said to me, “You can never go back there again until you learn how to shop at Kohl’s.” So now if I’m going to pick up a new shirt I go to the rack that says it was $29.99 & I see it’s marked down to $19.99. And then because I’m well trained I got that insert from the Sunday newspaper and I took it up to the clerk with my Kohl’s credit card and get another 10 or 15% off. And then I watch that mailer because, man, Tonette shops there a lot so I know I’m going to get another 10 to 15% off. And if I’m really lucky I get that flyer with 30% off.
Somehow I don’t think Ann Romney ever told her husband that he had to learn to shop at Kohl’s. Not that there’s anything wrong with being wealthy. But when money is no object it can be difficult to understand that most of us are subject to the mercy of money. The fact is, the lives of most Americans are centered around the fact we don’t have enough money. Mitt Romney couldn’t grasp this in 2012 and I don’t believe most of the current Republican field gets it either by virtue of their prosperity.

Roskam Blasts Final Nuclear Agreement with Iran

Jul 14, 2015 
Press Release
"This deal all but ensures Iran will become a nuclear power in our lifetime."

WASHINGTON, DC–Today, Congressman Peter Roskam (IL-06), co-chair of the House Republican Israel Caucus, released the following statement after the P5+1 announced a final nuclear agreement with Iran.
“Nearly two years ago, I cautioned the Obama administration against striking a nuclear deal with Iran that shifts our longstanding policy of prevention to a dangerous policy of containment. The final agreement reached today marks a U-turn on economic sanctions that were working to cripple Iran’s economy and force meaningful, permanent concessions from the regime. In fact, this deal all but ensures Iran will become a nuclear power in our lifetime, defeating from the outset the Obama administration’s own long-stated goal of preventing a nuclear-armed Iran.   
“In the coming years, Tehran will receive billions in additional sanctions relief and regain the ability to buy and sell not only conventional weapons, but also ballistic missiles capable of carrying a nuclear warhead—all with explicit support of the U.S government, until now an unthinkable proposition. Meanwhile, most nuclear restraints under this deal will soon expire, leaving the mullahs with a revitalized economy and a cleared path to a bomb. Perhaps worst of all, this agreement legitimizes and rewards the world’s chief state-sponsor of international terrorism—responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans and countless other innocent lives—with reintegration into the international community. Therefore, I plan to not only strongly oppose this deal, but urge my colleagues in the House and Senate to do the same.”

A Very Good Deal—for Iran | The Weekly Standard

Kristol on the deal...


We have a deal. It's a deal worse than even we imagined possible. It's a deal that gives the Iranian regime $140b in return for ... effectively nothing: no dismantlement of Iran's nuclear program, no anytime/anywhere inspections, no curbs on Iran's ballistic missile program, no maintenance of the arms embargo, no halt to Iran's sponsorship of terror. 
It's obviously a very good deal for the Iranian regime. It's a very bad deal for America. So Congress should rise to the occasion. Congress should engage in a full and comprehensive debate; Congress should then pass a resolution of disapproval; Congress should then override President Obama's veto, and return America's Iran policy to dealing from a position of strength rather than supplication. 
If this happens, historians will look back and say July 14, 2015, was the bottom, the nadir, from which America went on to recover. If Congress cannot override the president, the recovery will have to begin a year and a half from now, but from a deeper hole, a worse position for America, the Middle East, and the world.
