Afterthoughts About Election Day 2012

obama-romney

It’s been almost a week since the Election.  Even though I knew my vote didn’t count – each candidate I voted for lost and just about every issue on which I either voted yes or no went the other way – here in Washington, I voted nonetheless. Of course, I’m very unhappy about the results of…

President Mitt Romney

The title of my latest book, Barack Obama, You’re Fired! (And Don’t Bother Asking for a Letter of Recommendation), is more than an example of wishful thinking. I am convinced that this year, Christmas will fall on November 6th when Santa Claus, recognizing who’s been naughty and who’s been nice, will do the right thing…

Should Mitt Talk to Bill?

O and R

So I’m on with Bill O’Reilly and he says both Mitt Romney and President Obama should go on his program before Election Day.  He knows the president won’t take him up on the offer, but he says Romney’s people say they find the invitation “intriguing.” “Intriguing,” we both agree translates into “No way, Jose!”  But…

The Occupy Pennsylvania Avenue Movement

Some people were surprised that in their desperation to recover from some of the damage that Romney inflicted on Obama during the Denver debate, the Democrats sprang to the defense of Big Bird. Frankly, I saw it coming as soon as Romney told Jim Lehrer that as much as he liked Big Bird and Lehrer…

Romney Won It on Points

After you’ve read this special bonus article, Burt hopes you’ll enjoy Deciphering the Left. If the second presidential debate had been a prize fight, the ringside announcer would have said, “In the right corner, wearing white trunks, is Mitt (“The Gentleman Pugilist”) Romney. In the left corner, wearing black trunks, are Barack (“The Low Blow…

Grist for My Mill

On occasion, I have wondered what motivates liberals to say and do all those nutty things we have come to expect of them. At times, I find myself wondering if it’s to keep me supplied with material. If that’s actually the case, and that’s certainly a more reasonable conclusion than that they really mean all…

The Best College in America

If you’re a liberal, you would probably insist, depending on which one you attended, that Harvard, Yale, Stanford or UC Berkeley, was the finest college or university in the country. If you went to Harvard, you would probably say, in the world. If you were a conservative, you would probably vote for Hillsdale. But I…

Just How Dumb Are Republicans?

Burt’s Open Letter to the GOP

Republican, I really wish I didn’t have to acknowledge the truth of that statement. But after suffering through the GOP primaries thus far, what choice do I have? Frankly, I don’t object to the contenders going after each other with axe handles. That’s what primaries are for. Every contender should have ample opportunity to besmirch…
