If the GOP is really serious about winning back the presidency, it needs to win the deficit debate. The government of these United States is broke — flat broke — and if the nation is to survive as the prosperous nation it has long been, Republicans must restore fiscal sanity and call a halt to spending money we don’t have!
That’s what the Republicans promised us they would do last November, and … Read the Rest of this Post

All of a sudden the kept media is all agog over one Jon (not John) Huntsman, recently retired from his Obama administration post as U.S. Ambassador to the People’s Republic of China, provoking the president to joke that he was “sure that him having worked so well for me will be a great asset in any Republican primary.”
A former governor of Utah, Huntsman is a multimillionaire from a very wealthy family … Read the Rest of this Post
My adoptive parents told me I was “chosen,” but the kids at school told me I was a “bastard.”
The recent headlines about Arnold Schwarzenegger’s infidelities and the son he fathered out of wedlock have stirred many old memories and emotions.
I was four years old when I learned I was adopted. It was just before my sister Maureen’s eighth birthday. I told her, “I know what you’re getting for your birthday.”

For some conservatives, the most sacred initials in policymaking are WWRRD: What Would Ronald Reagan Do? Whenever America encounters a situation similar to one faced by the Gipper, they say the proper course is to follow his lead. Barack Obama’s undeclared war in Libya is such a situation, but I’m afraid Republicans are drawing the wrong analogy.

Another round of declassified FBI files on Senator Ted Kennedy has been released (click here and here). Fittingly, in Kennedy’s case, they once again raise all sorts of questions, from the moral to the political to issues of national security.
First, however, allow me to pause with a sympathetic note. Among the documents within Kennedy’s 2,200-page FBI file are materials from the mid-1960s on various lunatics threatening to shoot … Read the Rest of this Post

The turmoil and shocking thuggery we are now witnessing in Madison, Wisconsin, is at a level seldom seen in America in this era. School teachers, of all people, are setting bad examples for their students. Some engage in outright fraud, aided by medical doctors giving them phony diagnoses of nonexistent illnesses to give them an excuse for near rioting instead of doing their job of teaching.
There is a name for … Read the Rest of this Post

With Islamic riots, skyrocketing deficits, and state-skipping Democratic legislators hogging the headlines, this item has not yet gotten the attention it deserves. Steve Coll writes in The New Yorker, “The Obama Administration has entered into direct, secret talks with senior Afghan Taliban leaders, several people briefed about the talks told me last week.” Obama mentioned reaching out to “Taliban moderates” in 2009, only to drop the idea after public … Read the Rest of this Post

Spectacular, inspiring, encouraging – that is how I would describe this book. Mary Beth Brown has done a superb job sharing about the faith of this beloved president.
I was born during Reagan’s presidency and sadly I don’t remember much about that crucial period in our country’s history. It is only recently that I have taken a deeper interest in politics and have come to realize what an impact he … Read the Rest of this Post
