In dismissing the “Hillary Clinton Papers,” Joe Klein of Time notes “the disgraceful bilge volcano of the Clinton years — the non-stop garbage peddled and sleazed by Drudge and Rush and the then frisky young Fox Network, the fact that the Clintons were accused of drug-trafficking, murder, financial scandals and all sorts of vile craziness […]

Joe Biden missed a crucial opportunity in the Vice Presidential debate. He may have bested his opponent. Perhaps — if you rate Biden’s performance on sheer will and tenacity. He probably landed more punches — but that’s only because so many of his swings came in after the bell. So, that’s the good news for […]
A flashback to a CNN article from just before the 2004 election era shows just how unbelievable today’s new unemployment numbers are. In September 2004, new numbers came out, showing a drop in unemployment from 5.5% to 5.4%. At that time, with a much lower unemployment number than we have today (around 8% today), the […]
As I wrote on Monday, those who have counted Romney out, who have thought he was tired, who have thought he was defeated just met the real Mitt Romney. This man who “will not fail” (see Ann Romney’s RNC address) has given President Obama nowhere to hide as he exposed his 3.8 years of miserable […]
Winston Churchill, is credited with saying, “success is not final, failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts.” Churchill knew of what he spoke. By the time he had attained victory over the skies of England and later, over Nazi Germany, itself, he had seen many successes and many failures — […]
…nor has anyone been able to track down comments from a spokesperson for A.C.O.R.N. Thank you, Andrew. A life well fought. R.I.P.
As the Maine primary and CPAC straw poll have again pushed Mitt Romney into the front of the pack, Rick Santorum continues to focus on Romneycare and its apparent similarities to Obamacare, as he and Newt Gingrich promised to do after Romney’s win in Florida. But are the similarities all that Governor Romney’s opponents portend? I don’t […]
I can understand why Speaker Gingrich wants the stifling of applause to stop; he plays to the audience. When answering questions, he has that very particular gesture that is neither to the moderator or the fellow candidates, but is to the crowd. And he knows how to play ’em! But do we need to make […]
The Newt/Mitt rivalry is getting new life by virtue of the Old Gray Lady and a little artful questioning — artful in the truest sense of the pejorative that it is. The latest headline is now a quip that Mitt called Newt “zany,” or that Mitt thinks Newt is too “zany” to be President. But […]
Newt has made another Gingrichian mistake in his latest retort to Romney. His response to Romney’s request to give back the Freddie Mac money is misguided for the newly minted front-runner. It is not a Conservative position. But is it a Gingrich position? It just might be. Gingrich’s statement in full: “If Gov. Romney would […]
