  • Fred Thompson cuts robocall against Obama on abortion

    Former Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.) labels President Obama “the most pro-abortion president we’ve ever had” in a new robocall aimed at four million socially conservative voters.

    Thompson recorded the message for the Susan B. Anthony (SBA) List, which opposes abortion rights and is hoping to increase turnout for Mitt Romney on Election Day.

    “With only four days to go, we are leaving nothing on the table — voters must know this president’s extreme abortion record before casting their vote,” SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a statement. 

  • Obama campaign releases faux newscast predicting first 100 days under Romney

    President Obama’s campaign released a new Web video Friday predicting what the United States might look like after the first 100 days of a Romney administration, forecasting jobs leaving for China, the possible overturn of Roe v.

  • FDA finds more tainted products at pharmacy linked to meningitis

    Federal health officials have found bacteria in products from the Massachusetts pharmacy linked to a deadly outbreak of meningitis.

    Experts blame the spate of illnesses on steroid injections from the New England Compounding Center (NECC) that were contaminated with a fungus. Now, two additional NECC products have been found to contain bacteria.

    The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) could not estimate the “clinical significance” of exposure to the drugs contaminated with bacteria: an injectable steroid called betamethasone and a heart drug called cardioplegia.

  • Rand Paul not surprised by ‘Nanny Bloomberg’ endorsement

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) slammed New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg for his ban on large sodas after Bloomberg endorsed President Obama.

    Speaking on CNN, Paul cited the soda ban when he said he didn’t expect “Nanny Bloomberg” (I) to endorse Republican Mitt Romney.

    “I don’t think many of us thought that ‘Nanny Bloomberg’ was going to be endorsing a Republican any time soon. We can’t even get a decent-sized Coke to drink in New York City anymore. So, I don’t think his proclivities or his sort of sense of philosophy really is Republican much at all,” Paul said Thursday.
