The Dimwits are Always with us

nixon-kennedy-debate

I don’t recall ever hearing the term “low-information voter” before this year, but I have been familiar with the concept for more than a half-century. Low-information voters are those who know nothing about politics and politicians, but who insist on voting anyway. Both Republicans and Democrats are using the term to describe the bulk of…

What Rhymes with Mandate? Shmandate!

Obama-tax

What’s this hooey about Barack Obama winning a mandate to impose his economically destructive agenda on the American people? It’s understandable that the Democrats and their media lap dogs would try to propagate such hogwash, especially at a time when we are careening toward the so-called fiscal cliff — but must the more timid Republicans…

Sorry, but Failure to Rally the Base Didn’t Make the Difference

romney-and-mccain

There was a lot of fuss on the political talk shows today about the fact that Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential candidate, received some 2 million fewer votes this year than were cast for John McCain, the 2008 GOP presidential nominee. Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity both suggested that this means the Republicans didn’t do…

Don’t Waste Tears on Obama’s Victory

obama-crying

Take a good look at Barack Obama. He made history yesterday. He apparently became the first U.S. president to win a second term with fewer popular votes than he received the first time. I say apparently only because the popular-vote totals for the first nine U.S. presidential elections have been lost to history. Since 1820,…

Interpreting the Schedules in the Final Days

obama-vs-romney-2012-election

What can we conclude by examining the campaign schedules of Mitt Romney and Barack Obama during these last, waning days of the 2012 election? There undoubtedly are some clues to be read there, but I would guess that the ancient Romans had more luck divining the future by examining the entrails of birds. We know…

The Incumbent Rule

vote

We will know next Tuesday evening who the next President will be.  It has been a fascinating election season.  We have been inundated with information like no other election, but there has been some analysis missing from the mainstream media.  There has been very little talk about something called the “incumbent rule”.  This is a…

Out on a Limb, Predicting A Big Victory For …

Vote

Unlike Dick Morris and most of my conservative pals, I have no idea who’s going to win on Tuesday. Dick, as you know if you’ve watched Fox even for a few seconds, not only thinks Mitt Romney is going to win, he thinks he’s going to win big.  Except for the aforementioned pals of mine,…

An Appeal to Undecided Voters: Unite This Country By Voting For Romney

handshake

With the presidential election just a few days away, I think it’s safe to say that the overwhelming majority of voters are firm in who they intend to vote for. We’ve watched both candidates present their cases for why they deserve to be in the White House for the next few years. We’ve been assailed…
