Obama Banks Endorsements For Right Moment

How Senator Barack Obama effectively uses his endorsements? You notice how Senator Barack Obama has a bad week and then he gets a boost and a change of subject by a major endorsement?  Like he loses in New Hampshire or Texas and Ohio and it is immediately followed by an endorsement?  Or The New YorkContinue reading “Obama Banks Endorsements For Right Moment”

Racism and the Clinton Campaign

I guess I’m just naïve but I have to tell you that I am now shocked by this Geraldine Ferraro statement – saying in effect that Obama only got to where he is because he is Black – which is very clearly racist.  And of all people?  She was criticized the same way as aContinue reading “Racism and the Clinton Campaign”

Obama Will Win

Most will agree with me that Barack Obama is going to get the nomination.  In fact, most would agree with me that he will win the presidency, although the media will milk the suspense right up to the end.  After all, they are in show business.  And yes, there are weird things that happen inContinue reading “Obama Will Win”

Who Will Be John McCain’s Running Mate?

Now that Senator John McCain is absolutely the Republican nominee who will be his running mate?  The choice is much more limited than it may at first appear.  If he picks Mike Huckabee he risks seeing some Mormons in the Mountain States sitting at home on Election Day.  Many of them are simmering over Huckabee’sContinue reading “Who Will Be John McCain’s Running Mate?”

Passing of a Giant

The passing of Gordon B. Hinckley marks the end of the greatest era of expansion and acceptance for the Church of Latter Day Saints and much of what he accomplished was underestimated because of the long shadow of his predecessor.

Tim Goeglein Did Something Right

Well, Tim Goeglein, Special Assistant to the President, must have done something right.  He survived seven years in a stressful job where the average length of stay is a year and a half. And his boss was Karl Rove who, we are told, can be a little demanding as in “perfectionist.”  So, I for one,Continue reading “Tim Goeglein Did Something Right”

President’s Day

(Excerpt from appearnace on Fox and Friends) Why is Presidents’ Day so important?  It unites us as a people.  And it gives our youth common heroes.  We are divided by class, ethnicity, left and right on the political spectrum, religion and science but we come together in Washington, who walked away from power and Lincoln whoContinue reading “President’s Day”

The Mouse that roared: Why Ron Paul won the election

Well now, Republicans say, we have a nominee. That may very well be but there was only one clear winner in the confusing GOP nominating contest and it was not John McCain. The winner was Ron Paul. And the effects of his win will be felt for years to come. Ron Paul made a classicContinue reading “The Mouse that roared: Why Ron Paul won the election”

The historical ranking of George W. Bush

“W” for Mt. Rushmore?  How will history judge our 43rd President? He is the ultimate cowboy diplomat. He is the essence of bravado and arrogance.  Opponents called him a bully and he only turned that into a joke.  He started a war with an easy opponent and made it look like a great victory.  ButContinue reading “The historical ranking of George W. Bush”
