Bill O’Reilly’s Wrong – Mocking Double-Standards Isn’t ‘Justifying Bad Behavior’

I watch The O’Reilly Factor on a pretty regular basis. Like many people, I enjoy its entertaining and often insightful presentation of news analysis. While I don’t always agree with the opinions of host, Bill O’Reilly, I think he’s honest and generally has a pretty good observational take on most news items. That’s why I…

Obama’s Outing on Gay Marriage Was Not an Act of Bravery

On Wednesday in an interview with ABC News’ Robin Roberts, President Obama made a stunning announcement. He said he now supports same-sex marriage. If you listened carefully, you might have been able to hear a collective gasp spread across our nation over the unexpected declaration by a man who just four years ago campaigned for…

Why the Pop-Culture President Won’t Re-Energize the Youth Vote

I didn’t vote in the first two presidential elections that I was of age to participate in. Why not? Well, the truth is that I simply didn’t care. I didn’t think it really mattered which candidate won the presidency. To me, elections weren’t worth the time to stand in a long voting line and cast…

The topic was President Obama’s continued endorsement of what he calls The Buffett…

There are times when President Obama speaks that I honestly can’t believe I’m hearing such pompous, demeaning rhetoric coming from the man who holds the highest office in our nation. It’s often hard for me to sit through, not just because I disagree with him, but because of the audacity he displays by applying the…

Obama’s Mantra: Don’t Blame Me

Don't Blame Me

You have to feel sorry for President Obama.  He gets such a bad rap. Gas prices are high and going higher and despite what you hear from his enemies, it’s not his fault. We’re in the midst of the weakest post-recession recovery since before World War II, and again, despite what his mindless detractors tell…

Obama Hands Republicans Video Gold in Sawyer Interview

During a political campaign, the most effective tool a candidate can hand over to their opponents is a video clip reinforcing the key criticism opponents have assigned to them. In 2004, George W. Bush’s campaign got a lot of mileage out of airing a clip of opponent John Kerry stating that he voted for a…
