A Final Reflection on the Debate…Obama’s Façade Crumbles

Many thousands of words have been written since the debate last Wednesday. Much of the analysis insightful, some ludicrous, some almost depraved. But, now that the commentators and talking-heads have opined, I have reached several conclusions about the debate and its aftermath. First, Obama confirmed the obvious: little can be offered to defend or explain…

Romney’s Campaign: What Conservatives Want to Hear; What the Undecided Need to Hear?

As a conservative, I seethe with anger at Obama’s efforts to wreck our country’s economy, culture and way of life. The list of lies, extra-constitutional abuses, socialistic policies and foreign policy snafus is already endless…and they mount daily. Which one will drive me nuts today? I desperately want to fight back; I want Romney to…

The Romney Campaign: A ‘Duh’ and a Disappointment

This morning while perusing the news of the day, I was struck by two articles that left me frustrated and angry. Though addressing separate issues, the two articles are related in a disturbing way. The first, Erick Erickson’s ‘Treat the Press as Enemy Collaborators’ (http://www.redstate.com/2012/09/17/treat-the-press-as-enemy-collaborators/), details the MSM’s two latest antics: their coverage of Romney’s…

Obama’s ‘Arab Spring': Ineptitude, Negligence or Worse?

First, a show of hands; who ever had the slightest confidence the Arab Spring was a grassroots movement that would lead to the growth of democracy in the Mideast? Okay, even the most casual observer could forecast the outcome we see streaming on the internet and on our television screens. Common sense and a minimum…

The ‘Corporate Wife’ and Class Prejudice

Ann Romney

Suppose, next week, in Charlotte, a conservative commentator refers to Michelle Obama as a ‘government wife.’ No need to speculate on the howl that would be raised; the progressives’ outrage and media’s selective sensitivities would spew hyperbole not seen and heard since, well, last week when Mitt Romney joked about his own birth certificate. Like…

Bumper Stickers and a Lawless Leader

In a little over two weeks the political conventions will be over. Labor Day will be behind us and the ‘real’ presidential campaign will have begun. In past years, bumper stickers and yard signs appeared in mass; citizens proud and anxious to publicly support the candidates of their choice. But, this year, will conservatives be…

Is There Hope for the MSM?

First, let me say most measurements of change are relative; we naturally compare “what is” to “what was.” Therefore, a disclaimer: when noting a few relatively minor instances of fairness, they must be viewed in the context of the MSM’s usual 100 percent support of the leftist agenda. The day after the attack at the…
