How Falling Off The Fiscal Cliff Impacts You

How Falling Off The Fiscal Cliff Impacts You

I’ll say it again, Democrats want to go off the fiscal cliff.  They’ll get their tax increases – $600 billion dollars worth– their revenue increases, and cuts to defense, which has been a goal of theirs for the past ten years.  Goodbye Bush tax cuts, Hello Obama tax hikes.  With the fledgling coalition of ‘cliff […]

The Day After...

The Day After…

Well, we lost.  Mitt Romney didn’t win comfortably.  BUT, Republicans maintained control of the House of Representatives.  In one of the most ignominious highlights of the night, the GOP lost two senate seats – increasing the Democratic majority by two.  The current makeup is 55 Democrats to 45 Republicans.  In a milestone for the ladies, […]

Congress Has To Buck DC Culture And Investigate Benghazi

Congress Has To Buck DC Culture And Investigate Benghazi

For whatever reason, Washington DC has a bizarre culture of failing to get the entire story out. There’s a belief in popular culture that the federal government attempts to conceal as much of the truth as possible and only puts out what the public wants to hear.

Biden Unhinged in VP Debate, while Ryan exuded self-control

Biden Unhinged in VP Debate, while Ryan exuded self-control

  Last night’s Vice Presidential debate did put more pressure on Vice President Biden, who was tasked with delivering the same old progressive talking points about taxes, foreign policy, abortion, and health care – albeit with a little more spiritedness.  However, the pervasive grinning, smiling, and interrupting came off as egregiously arrogant and condescending.  Biden […]

Obama’s bad tryst with coal is going to hurt him

We all know about the Obama administration’s ‘War on Coal.’  It’s an egregious regulatory onslaught against American enterprise.  However, it’s a story that’s often buried by some in the media.  Last month, I wrote about how The Washington Post pushed another event in Obama’s war on coal to page 16 of their September 19 edition.  It was […]

Paul Ryan to be his running mate nine days ago, he forced Democrats to engage in serious intellectual debate in the coming weeks and months, rather than demagoguing which has been the main practice of the Obama/Biden campaign as of yet. Well, that’s what one would have thought, because, well, […]
