(51) Comments | Posted May 2, 2013 | 9:41 AM

Okay, here's another example of just how dumb our politics can be in this country.

I awoke today with stories abounding about tea party Senator (from Texas) Ted Cruz's potential run for President of the United States in 2016. Everything I saw, heard and read seemed to promote the fact...

(9) Comments | Posted April 4, 2013 | 6:30 PM

...let the liberal media and "Clintonistas" keep commanding the airwaves, newspapers and Internet 24/7 for the next two years with "Hillary is a shoo-in" 2016 talk. That'll do it!

As a woman and left-leaning voter, let me first say that I really like Hillary Clinton and I, too, hope that...

More Selective Memory... Obama Fails to Work With Republicans, Really??

(1) Comments | Posted December 4, 2012 | 5:21 PM

There is a meme quickly developing in the media chastising President Obama for his so-called failure to "sit down" or "meet" or "cooperate" with Republicans in Congress during these fiscal cliff negotiations.

Joe Scarborough of MSNBC's Morning Joe went on another tirade this morning about how President Obama "can't seem...

OK, this is what I want to know. Did everyone in the free world all of a sudden forget that it was not the Obama administration but the protestors on the ground in Libya who actually first stated that the reason they were protesting was because of the anti-Islam video,...

A Debate Tale of Two Candidates: Obama Is Too Laid Back But Romney Is Playing It Safe... Really?

(1) Comments | Posted October 25, 2012 | 3:18 PM

Okay, so let me get this straight. When President Obama appears calm and laid back in a debate, he's labeled as "listless" and "ineffectual" but when Mitt Romney appears calm and laid back in a debate, he's labeled as being "conservative" and "playing it safe." And when President Obama goes...

How the Liberal Media Might Have Contributed to Obama's Post-Debate Downfall

(114) Comments | Posted October 22, 2012 | 12:40 PM

It's always talked about but rarely examined, Republican reaction to a crisis and monumental disappointment versus Democratic reaction to the same. The difference was never on such wide-eyed display as in the past 2-3 weeks following the first two debates between the presidential contenders.

According to numerous polls, most...

People Out Here With Serious Problems Don't Care About United Nations Photo-ops!

Okay, I'm as cautious as the next person and I admit that when I first heard that President Obama was not meeting with any world leaders at the United Nations, it gave me pause as to what the strategic thinking here might be. But for the umpteenth morning I awoke...

(13) Comments | Posted August 28, 2012 | 2:40 PM

In watching some of the cable news stations this weekend prior to the start of the Republican National Convention, I have seen some media outlets noting the increasing theme of the Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan presidential ticket touting themselves as... "America's Comeback Team." Really? Where are they coming back from?

Follow the Leader: Since When Is Focusing on Your Opponent's Business Record 'Swift Boating?'

(8) Comments | Posted July 17, 2012 | 4:25 PM

Over the weekend, the Obama campaign put out a pretty clever campaign video of Mitt Romney singing "America the Beautiful" while displaying various news headlines of Romney/Bain outsourcing claims. I guess because the spot received such notice, now the Romney campaign has once again followed the Obama campaign's lead and...

A few months ago, I stayed home from work for two days straight with crippling abdominal pains. My first thought was maybe extreme menstrual cramps but I soon realized that this was something else. Never had I had cramps and pains so bad that it kept me from going to...

Okay, we know it's political silly season but sorry I still don't see the reason for the outrage! When there is an addition to the number of jobs added and a subtraction to the unemployment number... how is that a bad thing! And by the way for those not clued...

Are you kidding me? Seriously, are you kidding me? Actual, legitimate media pundits and political professionals are really asking if President Obama should tout the killing of Osama bin Laden during his re-election campaign? Really... seriously???

I honestly don't know where to start. These are some of...
