Stale 'War on Women' Rhetoric Underscores Tone-Deaf DNC

It's bad enough when men regard women as single-issue voters, but it's insulting when women buy into that brainless nonsense.Hence, the entire one-trick pony "war on women" of a Democratic National Convention agenda this week showcased a party bereft of fresh ideas for women, unless they happen to think of little more than their reproductive systems.No question that women's issues post-Roe v.

Romney's Europe and Israel Trip Exposes Obama's Foreign Policy

On Monday, I received an intriguing notice from the Mitt Romney camp that the candidate would begin a two-week trip abroad this week to England, Israel and Poland just as many trail-watchers figured a VP announcement was imminent. Just as I was about to dig into the history of foreign trips for presidential candidates, I received another notice that the president's campaign staff planned a media call at 11:15 a.m. EST....more
