You have a choice. You can drive that change, or you can be swallowed by it. In a free society, people have liberty to do anything except a few prohibited things. In a totalitarian society, people have liberty to do nothing except a few permitted things. In a free society, the people have a black list of things they must not do, and government has a white of a few things it may do. In
200,000 That’s the number of small businesses lost during the Obama Administration. If re-elected, Obama promises to accelerate the policies that destroyed American jobs, investments, and companies.

Barack Obama’s performance was not nearly as bad as Romney’s performance was good. Not good—terrific. I’m not talking about his politics and policies; I’m talking Romney’s remarkable presence. Here are the four principles of presence that Romney knocked out of the park. Command of the Facts When it came to facts—and to how those facts matter to the listeners—Mitt Romney seemed more prepared for the office of President than the President. Every attack by the
A genius is someone who can hold contrary concepts simultaneously in mind. What, then, do we call a person who simultaneously argues two contrary concepts? How ‘bout “demagogue?” A few weeks ago, Barack Obama told America’s business owners that they are not responsible for their success. “Someone else built that.” Today, the same Obama told Mitt Romney that there not many people who consider themselves victims. Does Mr. Obama believe that people in dire
Barack Obama came to office promising to heal the planet (I didn’t know it was sick), lower the waters, and end war as we knew it “whilst waking on water squirting wine out his ass,” to borrow William S. Burroughs’s anti-Christian blasphemy in Naked Lunch. (Funny. I don’t recall reading about Christians blowing up embassies over that book’s publication.) Four years later, The One might want to let the waters rise. Maybe they’ll put out
Here’s a screen grab from RealClearPolitics.com’s presidential tracking poll: RCP aggregates dozens of polls to produce its RCP average.

This story is about Romney shutting down a thriving business over a woman. A young woman. A woman young enough to be Mitt’s daughter.
The look on George “Stephie” Stephanopoulos’s face was priceless. He had to say it. “ABC News now projects that President Obama will go down to defeat.” He couldn’t bring himself to say, “Romney won” or “Republicans won.” He just couldn’t. The network analysis was a political cliché run amok. My favorite came from James Carville who told CNN viewers that the election result “proves that crackers and racists vote.” Andrea Mitchell: “Usually in a democracy,
The future is ours. Your disgust with the borrowing and spending, your noble desire to restore the republic the founders wrought, those are the real protests. The tea party is in our hearts and souls–the events are just the physical manifestations. But now, the President: Ninety percent of live blog posts suck. So I did my blog readers a big favor: I tested my quips on Twitter. Here I present my instant reactions that were
