My Impending Xenophobia Diagnosis

It turns out a few US Senators have been meeting and drafting new legislation that would “solve” the illegal immigration problem in the US. The Washington Post describes the group as “meeting quietly.” Others might call it “meeting in secret.” So who are the quiet meeters? Six total – three from each party. The Democrats: Senate […]

Cradle To Grave Narrative Wins

The day after the Presidential election, Rush Limbaugh said the results proved that people voted for Santa Claus. The point was that people voted for a government that would do things for them and give things to them. Limbaugh was savaged by the left and the media for saying this. Proving that either the critics […]

The Evil Rich Began Acting Rationally

So, about that big sell off on Wall Street after the election… It turns out there were a lot of selfish, rich capitalist pigs who decided to take their chips off the table rather than gamble on dodging the proverbial soaking that the American electorate voted to commence. President Obama ran on a promise to […]

Changing Demographics And Identity Politics

As the electoral dust settles and Republicans discuss what went wrong and how to improve their appeal, the analysis on the Left has been focusing on how the American electorate is changing – to the benefit of Democrats. It’s a narrative that the Obama campaign has capitalized on through its target marketing efforts, if not explicitly […]

Ryan Got An Interviewer, Biden Got Moderator

The pundits are nearly unanimous in their praise today for Martha Raddatz’s handling of the Vice Presidential debate last night. While not surprising, I believe it’s instructive. Look, I understand the almost knee-jerk response among national journalists to defend one of their colleagues. It happens at a local level, too. I also can accept the anti-male […]

For Mitt: End Of The Road Or Bump In The Road?

I’ve said from the start of the 2012 GOP primary that Mitt Romney is not a good candidate.  When pressed, the most passionate defense I’ve ever been able to muster for the politician is, “He’ll do – against a President I like even less.” The latest evidence of his sub-par prowess is a secret video recording posted […]

Observations in a Post-bin Laden World

This might be a self-defeating tactic for a media guy, but whenever a major event occurs I tend to let some time pass before I start drawing conclusions. I’ll spend the first 72 hours or so gathering information and listening to what other people say. I try not to make a formal assessment about a […]

Polls: McCrory Leads Perdue In Rematch

About 1,000 North Carolinians who are registered to vote (although might never actually do so) say they’d prefer former Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory to be Governor, rather than the current occupant of the office – Bev Perdue. Two polls released in the past week support what everyone in NC politics already assumes: That Governor Perdue […]

Shocker! President’s Fiscal Plan Wins Endorsement From Foxx

We can all rest easier about the second deficit-reduction proposal President Obama has offered us. Not because his proposal will reduce the debt America is accumulating at a faster clip than anytime else in her history. No, no. The justification for our bliss is that the President’s proposal has won the endorsement of Charlotte Mayor […]

Former Speaker’s “Sideline” Analogy Flawed

Former Speaker of the House Jim Black never ceases to amaze me. I still shake my head in disbelief that voters in his Southern Mecklenburg district re-elected him despite the swirl of investigation and … well… stench emanating from his office. So, today, the Charlotte Observer has some quotes from the disgraced ex-Speaker’s interview on […]
