A Bad Year for Obama May Turn Worse in 2014

If President Obama were a baseball player he would have gone 0 for 2013. No, it’s not exactly breaking news that 2013 was a bad year for the president.  But he may soon look back on the remnants of a bad year and say, “Those were the good old days.” Mr. Obama’s biggest flop, of…

Could Pajama Onesies Be the Key to Engaging Young Americans?

In my column last week, I explained why I didn’t believe it was a smart idea for Republican candidates, in 2014, to present a GOP comprehensive healthcare plan as an alternative to Obamacare. My reasoning was that it would only give the Democrats something to demagogue, and draw some heat off of themselves, much like…

A Stinkweed By Any Name

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to get through a single day without being reminded that something in the air or in the water has polluted America to such an extent that we have come to accept insanity as the norm? For instance, the annual furor over Christmas has already begun. While it appears…

The Mainstream Media Have Made the Conservative Media Prophets

I’ve long thought of conservative-leaning news outlets as being only small counterbalances to the dominant liberal slant that exists in the mainstream media. Fox News is a perfect example. Though the network fares well against its national news competitors on an individual basis, it is merely a lone conservative voice in an industry that is…

“Highly Implausible Deniability” and “The Ever-Expanding Gender Gap”

Barack Obama, mainly through his sock puppet Jay Carney, claims he knew nothing about Operation Fast & Furious; the tapping of the AP phones; Ambassador Steven’s request for additional security in Benghazi; the NSA spying on our allies; the suspension of military death benefits; the targeting of conservatives by the IRS; or the problems with…
