Ted Cruz and what the GOP establishment can learn from Osama Bin Laden…

In 1975 & 76 the United States was experiencing a crisis of confidence. Unemployment was at 8.5%, our allies in South Vietnam, who 58,000 American servicemen gave their lives to defend, had just been overrun and the reverberations of an … Continue reading

It’s Time for the Wealthy to Pay for their Fair Share of Taxes, Part II [Reader Post]

I’m not a fan of Ann Coulter – her style is a little too abrasive for me, and while I usually agree with the philosophy of her arguments I’ve generally found her supporting info to be too factually challenged to … Continue reading

It’s Time for the Wealthy to Pay their Fair Share of Taxes [Reader Post]

My local news paper, the Falls Church News Press (FCNP) had two interesting articles its December 13th edition. While they seem unrelated on the surface the two actually help to make an interesting point. First off, the FCNP is run … Continue reading

The Unions Aren’t Completely to Blame for this One… [Reader Post]

Yes, you read that headline correctly, and this will probably draw a lot of friendly fire. First off, any of my regular readers know that I have no love for the unions. I’ve argued previously that public employee unionization is … Continue reading

When America needed a leader, Mitt Romney was a manager [Reader Post]

As one who writes about everything political, one of the downsides of living in a state that is utterly unimportant from the Electoral College perspective is the fact that you’re insulated from much of the advertising campaigns that ravaged the battleground states. (From the perspective of a normal person however, that would likely be a blessing…)

Election Postmortem – The Point Everybody is Missing [Reader Post]

By now everybody knows about the results of Tuesday’s elections and we’ve seen tons of analysis. The predominant themes have been that only in hindsight did Romney run a horrible campaign, that the Tea Party extremism had been rejected by the voters, that this is truly Obama’s mandate, all of the Republican forecasting models were horrifically wrong, and that the Republican party’s only hope is to make drastic changes to its principles if it hopes to survive. Did I miss anything? It’s natural to knee jerk or overreact when something unexpected happens, so I have advice for both sides: don’t read too much into this election and base your next moves only on what happened Tuesday.

Blame Bush, And Other Great Examples of Leadership [Reader Post]

A favorite excuse of the lefties who try to justify President Obama’s dismal economic record is to repeat his refrain of complaining about the economy he inherited. I tried to think back on the many other great leaders who were still blaming their predecessor from four years ago and couldn’t come up with any. So I tried thinking up some hypothetical situations where other leaders might have tried to blame their predecessors from from years past…

Why Obama Will Win the Election – And One Reason to Believe he Won’t [Reader Post]

This is another one of those topics I’ve had kicking around for a while and since it will become irrelevant in 48 hours now seemed as good a time as any to wrap things up. This will be one of my posts that will give everyone something to hate. Most of this post is things I’ve been saying since 2009 – the subject has angered my conservative friends for obvious reasons, while the reasons behind my conclusions don’t go over well with my leftist friends. Since early in his presidency I have asserted that President Obama would get re-elected in 2012 no matter who he ran against, and regardless of how badly he does the job of president.

Democrats for Romney? [Reader Post]

This post is for all of the lefties out there, or for anyone who has a favorite lefty friend still convinced that that an Obama re-election will ultimately make them happier than if Romney were to win on Tuesday. There are a lot of issues that are driving your decision to vote for Obama. We know that there’s the right to pay for the contraception for future one percenters, hating chicken sandwiches, making our country a welcome home to illegal immigrants, telling us how much salt or sugar we’re allowed to consume, or ensuring the right to cast fraudulent votes. Do you know why you care about these issues? Because you can.

The Real War on Women [Reader Post]

Personally, I don’t see how every woman is not insulted at how condescending and intellectually shallow the efforts to target their vote have been. Apparently objecting to paying for your abortions or birth control is the equivalent of a ban to this administration. No word if the lefties are ready to self identify as Prohibitionists for failing to pick up my bar tab.
