The Romney Connection

I’m sorry to report that I missed most of Chris Wallace’s recent Fox News special interview with Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and his wife at their Massachusetts vacation home. The part I did see went a long way toward debunking the “Mitt Romney can’t connect with regular folks” myth. ...more

At the RNC: Romney Restoring GOP's Faith on Economy, Leadership

Two disasters rest on the lips of every delegate, GOP staffer and member of the media: Hurricane Isaac and the national economy.The 2012 Republican National Convention agenda carefully danced with the impending disaster of the former made by Mother Nature, while presuming to be the hope to recover the nation from the latter....more

Why the Rhetoric Against the Successful Must End

Entrepreneurs are drawn to places with opportunities. For centuries, the place to make those dreams a reality was America. But the eternal optimist that was America is going through a down spell. A sluggish economy and a rhetoric against success threatens to unravel a society that long understood that the only way to lift yourself up is from your own bootstraps....more

Another R Bites the Dust

Does anyone else get the feeling that Republicans should just stop talking? I realize this would be difficult during the convention and all but given recent comments from party nominees the scheduled speakers would do themselves a favor by standing at the podium and adhering to the teleprompter message of WAVE AND SMILE BUT DON’T OPEN YOUR MOUTH. Consider PA Republican Senate nominee Tom Smith’s response Monday to Todd Akin’s comments on “legitimate rape.” He condemned them but then couldn’t help himself from comparing rape to out-of-wedlock pregnancy: I lived something similar to that with my own family. She chose life and I commend her for that. She knew my views but fortunately for me … she chose the way I thought. Now don’t get me wrong. It wasn’t rape. ...more

Ignorant (Would Be) Legislator of the Week: Tom Smith

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Tom Smith caused a post-Akin uproar yesterday when he compared pregnancy outside of wedlock to rape. When asked at a Pennsylvania Press Club luncheon about Congressman Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” comments, Smith said, “I lived something similar to that with my own family.” Asked by a reporter what that situation was, he said his daughter had gotten pregnant out of wedlock. According to news reports, Smith was asked if he thought having a baby out of wedlock was similar to rape and he at first said no and then kept talking,  ”No, no, no, but put yourself in a father’s position, yes. It is similar.” Smith, who built and sold a coal mining business in Pennsylvania, is running against Democratic Sen. Bob Casey on November 6. ...more

Street Style: Day 1 at the Republican National Convention

The style quotient was high inside and outside the Republican National Convention on Day 1. From reporters in stylish galoshes to delegates in tailored leather blazers, storm conditions didn’t dampen (pun intended) the style of GOP convention attendees. ...more

Well, Well

Wonders never cease, as private schools are also being negatively affected by charter schools.It's an easy problem to cure, of course. Simply hand over money to already existing private schools, you know, those "superior" schools, and with no accountability to taxpayers on how the money is being spent.Privatization of public education is nothing more than a bank heist to enrich the few at the expense of the many. ...more
