Troubling pattern

How is it that someone like Barack Obama is actually in the running to become President of the United States? Are people really not scared when they look at his personal associations and voting record? Does it really not matter that for 20 years he attended a church that preaches Black Liberation Theology (the idea […]

Forgiving or forgetful?

Mark Hemingway says that “Joe Biden is proof that Americans are kindly forgiving people.” I think he’s proof that Americans are astoundingly forgetful and prone to overlook failure for perceived good intentions.

Do facts matter?

Thomas Sowell expresses his bewilderment over how Obama could be the one getting a bounce from the current crisis brought on by the Democrats. Abraham Lincoln said, “You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you can’t fool all the people all the time.” […]

I’ll be expecting your support…

Why are Republicans concerned about the polls?

If Obama has a 7-point lead right now it just means he’ll be behind 2 or 3 points on election day. Just Google “Kerry leads Bush” and you’ll find all kinds of examples where Kerry was ahead of Bush. I don’t think there’s any reason to panic with more than a month left before election […]

No one has the right to determine the value of someone else’s life

Gianna Jesson is a survivor of abortion. Yes, her mother wanted to kill her. Some pro-choicers argue that if your mother doesn’t want you that your life will be miserable and not worth living (i.e., the potential for child abuse means that abortion is the “compassionate” choice). I wonder why Gianna is not leading a […]

When we look back at how revered politicians, intellectuals, and churchmen could seriously defend a practice that now […]

When in doubt, kill, kill, kill?

Obama recently clarified his position on when life begins (before he had said it was “above [his] pay grade”).  In an interview with ABC News’ This Week program on Sunday, Obama said, “What I intended to say is that, as a Christian, I have a lot of humility…all I meant to communicate was that I […]

Foreign policy “experience”

Comments Off on Foreign policy “experience”

Thomas Sowell puts it well: …Democrats have…suddenly discovered that [Palin’s] lack of experience in general — and foreign-policy experience in particular — is a terrible danger in someone just a heartbeat away from being President of the United States. …this is an incredible argument coming from those whose presidential candidate has even less experience in […]

Lesser of two evils it is…

Well, I thought I might vote for a third party this year, but because John McCain picked Sarah Palin as his running mate, I now feel that he is sincere in his promises to appoint constructionist judges to the Supreme Court. So, you’ll see that I now have a McCain-Palin button on my blog. I’m […]
