Rand Paul vs. Ted Cruz Round 4. Welcome To 2016
Josh Kraushaar, National Journal: Time for Truth in Labeling: Obama Is Not Centrist
Someone thought he was a centrist? "It's a useful corrective to the notion, fueled by the White House, that the Republican Party alone is responsible for gridlock in Washington. But Kohut downplays one significant factor that has expedited the Democratic polarization: President Obama himself." [rdbrewer]
Sean Trende: Another Look at Dems' Chances of Losing the Senate
"All the modelers seem to agree that the Democrats’ Senate majority is in real trouble, and that they may even be underdogs in their quest to keep it. The current polling certainly bears out this view...." [rdbrewer]
Victor Davis Hanson: Obama: Ike Redivivus?
"[A] persistent myth has arisen that Obama is reminiscent of Eisenhower — in the sense of being a president who kept America out of other nations’ affairs and did not waste blood and treasure chasing imaginary enemies." [rdbrewer]
Jonathan S. Tobin: The Media’s Obama Protection Society
"But, as Dylan Byers wrote in Politico, Attkisson had an even bigger problem: most of her colleagues at CBS didn’t like the fact that she had spent the last few years reporting aggressively about the Obama administration’s various shortcomings and scandals. Journalists at mainstream media outlets like to pretend that they play it down the middle when it comes to whoever is in power." [rdbrewer]
The Independent: Space debris orbiting Earth to be destroyed with giant lasers fired from Australia
("Space debris," nudge nudge, wink wink.) [rdbrewer]

NBC: Scientists Suggest Dark Matter Played Role in Dinosaurs' Doom
"Randall and Reece suggest that there's a thin, dense disk of the stuff running along the midplane of our Milky Way galaxy. Our solar system traces an up-and-down, wavy motion through that plane as it travels around the galaxy...." So every 30 million years, we get bombarded by comets. Via HotAir. [rdbrewer]

Joseph Curl: Today’s GOP really is Reagan’s ‘Big Tent’ party
"[The press] misses that the Republican Party really has once again become the 'Big Tent' that President Reagan once set as a top goal. It is, as several top party leaders have said recently, full of warriors fighting it out on 'the battlefield of ideas.'" [rdbrewer]

Brendan Bordelon: Ted Cruz doesn’t get why media treats Obamacare repeal as a ‘bizarre proposition’
"Cruz can’t understand why the mainstream media views the repeal of Obamacare as a 'bizarre proposition,' noting that the healthcare bill is 'the most unpopular law in the country.'" Word. Also from TheDC: NLRB charges union members with threatening to rape, harm managers’ kids. [rdbrewer]

"Band of Brothers" WWII Vet Bill Guarnere Dies at 90 Rest in peace.
Stephen F. Hayes: Obama’s Fantasy-Based Foreign Policy
"For five years, the Obama administration has chosen to see the world as they wish it to be, not as it is. In this fantasy world, the attack in Fort Hood is 'workplace violence.' The Christmas Day bomber is an 'isolated extremist.' The attempted bombing in Times Square is a 'one-off' attack. The attacks in Benghazi are a 'spontaneous' reaction to a YouTube video. Al Qaeda is on the run. Bashar al-Assad is a 'reformer.' The Iranian regime can be sweet-talked out of its nuclear weapons program. And Vladimir Putin is a new, post-Cold War Russian leader." [rdbrewer]
• Micth McConnell, three days ago at CPAC: "If I'm given the opportunity to lead the U.S. Senate next year, I won't let you down."
• Mitch McConnell, yesterday: "I think we are going to crush them everywhere," referring to Tea Party efforts.
• Mitch McConnell, tomorrow: "Aww, I didn't mean that. Y'all are going to help me beat that Democrat in November, right?" [rdbrewer]
