Mitt Romney Is No George Bush

Some months ago, in the heat of the Republican primary I wrote about key differences between Mitt Romney and a prior Republican candidate, Senator John McCain. You may recall that some of Romney’s primary opponents were gallivanting about proclaiming wrongly how Romney was a squishy moderate, “just like McCain”.  Of course it was not true [...]

The Last Great Hypocrisy of Barack Obama’s Campaign

The Presidential campaign events of the last six weeks will be studied by political scientists for many years to come. The closeness of the presidential race, the competition for senate seats, without which the President, whomever that is to be, is likely to be paralyzed; the dynamics of race and religion– It all makes for [...]

Finally, an Outsider in the White House

It seems that in each Presidential election cycle, there are voices in the electorate that call for an “outsider” to be chosen. “Why can’t we send someone who knows what he’s doing?, we cry. For as long as I can recall, in fact, many Americans have craved the opportunity to send someone to Washington who [...]

Obama’s Failed Foreign Policy Exposes His Double Standard

 Let me get this straight. A little more than a year ago, after successfully killing the leader of Al Qaeda, Osama Bin Laden, President Obama and virtually all the talking heads of both his campaign and his  administration, proclaimed that he had made the courageous decision to authorize the use of deadly force by U.S. [...]

Presidential Debate Review–Clint Eastwood’s Revenge

During the recent Republican convention, Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood famously conversed with an importune empty chair. Lampooning the incumbent President in a way only Eastwood could likely get away, he was pointing out what many have known for some time, that Obama has always been way more oratory and pomp, than intellect or substance. A [...]

To My Fellow Independent and Undecided Voter Friends

I have been a registered American Independent for more than twenty years. I left the Republican Party in 1988 after watching a number of Republican senators and congressmen behave like, well…something other than conservative Republicans. It seemed that every few months, some Republican lawmaker was either being indicted for something, or was spending tax money [...]

Mitt Romney’s new best friends… Jimmy Carter’s Grandson and Mother Jones

The now well played video of Mitt Romney; shot apparently by President Carter’s grandson, James, talking to donors in May has been hashed and rehashed more in the last 48 hours than almost any other message of this campaign thus far. Pundits and pollsters have been either wringing their hands (Bill Kristol), or gleefully declaring [...]

The Hypocrisy of the Tax Demanding Left

The Obama campaign continues to seek to hammer Mitt Romney regarding his decision to only release two years of tax returns. I find this entertaining and hypocritical. When the uber wealthy and deeply beloved John F. Kennedy ran for President, he released exactly… zero tax returns. Nothing. Nada. Niente. Did the media demand that he was [...]

The Peanut Butter President

Apparently, former Mass. Governor Mitt Romney has a little lunch habit, which sometimes spills over to snack time. According to some close observers, including his wife, Romney loves peanut butter. Preferred lunchtime menu is… peanut butter and honey sandwiches. While this little factoid, in and of itself, may not seemingly be of much interest, I [...]

Mitt Romney is not John McCain

As the party’s nomination process becomes clear in recent days, I have heard some in the Republican Party suggest that they’re going to sit out the general election, as some form of protest vote. They assert that because they’re “sick and tired of the media or the establishment thrusting moderates on us”, they’re staying home. [...]
