Cain Misspeaks On Marriage

I know many people have concluded in the past few weeks that Herman Cain is the best conservative we could nominate. Many are drawn to his 9-9-9 tax plan. Cain's surge in the polls has predictably led to increased scrutiny of 9-9-9, as well as his other positions, including on values issues.

National Review's...

Company Caves; Protestors Attack

The private company that owns Zuccotti Park backed down from its demand that the Wall Street protestors clear out so the park could be cleaned. And how did the protestors respond? Just as Iran or the jihadists in the Palestinian territories do -- at the first sign of weakness they attack!

Emboldened by their victory in occupying the park, the...

2012 Update

As I noted yesterday, the Republican presidential primary contest is wide open. New polling data today provides the proof. As always, it is important to note that polls are just snap shots in time and do not predict future results. But the data do show a turbulent race and serve as a warning for the presumed front-runner.

  • A new NBC/Wall...

Debate Analysis

Before I offer thoughts on last night's GOP debate, I want to reiterate that I am not endorsing any candidate at this time. I am only offering my analysis, based on my 40 years of experience in the political arena, including my own participation in eight presidential debates in 2000.

The de facto "winner" of last night's debate was probably...

No Improvement

The government released its latest unemployment figures and found no improvement -- the unemployment rate remains stuck at 9.1%. The Labor Department notes that 103,000 jobs were created last month, and Obama apologists will seize on that number as evidence of progress. But that is way below the number needed (200,000 to 250,000) to lower the unemployment rate.

The Field Is Set

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will not be a candidate for president in 2012. Here is an excerpt from an e-mail Palin sent to supporters last night:

"After much prayer and serious consideration, I have decided that I will not be seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for President of the United States. As always, my family comes first and...

Debate Reaction

I have learned over the years that when I offer my thoughts on GOP debates, folks tend to read between the lines and often think they can discern who I am supporting. So before I offer a few comments about last night’s debate, let me reiterate: I am not endorsing any candidate at this time. My goal is to make sure we nominate the most conservative candidate who has the best chance of ending the Obama nightmare.

Having said that, I think Governor...

Obama Feels The Heat On Israel

President Obama spoke to the U.N. General Assembly yesterday. The speech was a “yawner,” significant for what he did not say rather than what he said. There was a lot of rhetoric about how bad poverty and nuclear weapons are. (I doubt Iran’s Ahmadinejad will be moved to end his nuclear weapons program.) Applause was polite, but nothing more. Obama’s habit of apologizing for America during his first three years in office has...
