The State Of Our Union Is…Confused.

President Obama’s State of the Union address was nothing new.  As all politicians do, he called attention to a few high points of the past year, but primarily focused on the future, laying out a fresh list of promises that few people truly believe he can make good on. The President took aim...

A Few Political Predictions

I predicted that Mitt Romney would win the 2012 Presidential race, so let that be a warning to you. 1.  The 2014 and 2016 elections will not be good for Democrats.  I don’t say this in a juvenile spirit of “Oh yeah, well we’re going to beat you next time, so there!”  Rather,...

An Appeal To The Christian Left

For a large number of conservatives who were expecting Mitt Romney to win the election last week, day one of the Romney Presidency was also going to be day one of a concerted loyal opposition effort.  A good deal of conservatives were unhappy with the Romney nomination.  Not just the Ron Paul people,...

An Affair to Remember in Words Soon Forgotten

An entire year of planning goes into the brief, televised announcement. A network of hundreds of experts vet every point.

A Rush to the Middle… Class

It’s the speech the White House Communications Office spends a year writing, and the news media spends a couple days dissecting.  It was important enough that the Framers mandated that the president “shall, from time to time, give to the Congress information of the state of the union, and recommend...

Barack Obama: The Populist Professor?

Last night’s State of the Union address changed nothing, aside from Chris Matthews’ eyesight, which I trust has returned to normal.  President Obama is still committed to the same unpopular policies that have left him with a dropping approval rating, and he “won’t quit”. Neither will Republicans,...

Ebenezer Pelosi?

Nancy Pelosi wants to ‘decrease the surplus population’, Ebenezer Scrooge style. From Drudge: STEPHANOPOULOS: Hundreds of millions of dollars to expand family planning services. How is that stimulus? PELOSI: Well, the family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost. The states...

Americans “Born Again” Under President Obama

Apparently, we are “born again” as Americans through the redemptive work of President Barack Obama. Left unanswered, however, was the question of righteousness. It is clear to me that President Obama, by his merely assuming the office of the president, has made all America righteous before...

Five Things to Watch for at the DNC

By John Mark Reynolds Chatting about expectations is a political junky’s game. Looking for a fix of actual news at the Convention, you will hear many things about the Democratic National Convention (DNC) most of which will turn out to be false in retrospect. For sane voters–most of whom will...
