The Art of the Spit Take is Needed Now More Than Ever

I admit it. I’m jealous of my daughter. She’s only six years old and she has already mastered a talent that I’ve never been able to acquire. I’m talking about something I used to practice from time to time, well into my teenage years before finally accepting that some people’s bodies just aren’t designed to…

How Can Obama Respect An Electorate That Would Re-Elect Him?

obama

From time to time, I’ll hear a political commentator (typically a conservative one) suggest that President Obama does not respect the news media. It seems like a pretty odd claim to make. After all, no other president has been protected and promoted by the news media the way Obama has. They’ve largely defended him against…

2016

The next presidential election is just four short years away. It seemed like just yesterday that we Republicans envisioned a future of Romney, Ryan and Rubio. Now we have to wonder if we were too quick to laugh when Joe Biden said that this wouldn’t be his last hurrah, and that he would be on…

How About Some of That Empathy For Our Children?

It seems that not a day goes by without us hearing the often repeated narrative that Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, just doesn’t care about regular Americans. Whether it’s parroted by liberal pundits, Democratic spokespeople, or campaign ads, the charge is loud and clear: Romney’s rich, so he can’t empathize with people who aren’t. The…

Mitt Romney “Gets” What’s Important

Mitt-Romney

At the DNC, Julian Castro, Mayor of San Antonio, Texas, said Mitt Romney “doesn’t get it.”  According to some, Mr. Romney doesn’t relate to the “little people” because he didn’t grow up like average folks.  Well, so what?  Mitt Romney comes from money, I don’t.  I don’t want him to “get” my life; I want…

That’s one of the responses from a man standing in line at the welfare office.  If your stomach can take it, please watch this video.  Our country is spending money faster than we can print it and there’s no doubt in my mind that we’re heading in the same direction as Greece – a big fat entitlement…

The Responsibility of the Media to Debunk The Buffett Rule

Very rarely does something on television prompt me to literally stand up and cheer, especially when it comes to a news program. Yet, that’s exactly what I found myself doing Tuesday night when watching a panel discussion on FOX News’ Special Report. The topic was President Obama’s continued endorsement of what he calls The Buffett…

Paul Ryan – A Role Model for Washington Leadership

I have exactly one bumper-sticker on the back of my car, and you’re looking at it. I’m talking about the photo to the side of this column – the one featuring an image of Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. Most of my friends have absolutely no idea what point the sticker is making, which I…
