No King Solomons in Sight

[Enjoy a bonus article today! After you finish this one, be sure to read “Screwballs and Screwdrivers.”] One good thing that candidate Gingrich did was open to discussion the role of the judiciary. Personally, I balk at his suggestion that judges should be called before Congress to explain and defend their dopey decisions. That is,…

Not Newt!

Mitt Romney

Recently, I received word from a friend named Jack who let me know in no uncertain terms why he was backing Newt Gingrich and turning his back on Mitt Romney. Mainly, he seemed to like Newt because of his rousing attacks on the media and Obama. When it came to Romney, he used such demeaning…

The Liberal Media Views Race Through the Eyes of Michael Scott

MichaelScott

One of my all time favorite television characters is Michael Scott from The Office (back when the show was still funny). The self-centered and incompetent, though well-meaning office manager was portrayed masterfully by actor Steve Carell. One of the many trademarks of the character was his internal need to demonstrate to his subordinates that he…

The Arrogant and Clueless Mainstream Media

Obama Media

So Bill O’Reilly says Newt Gingrich is doing well bashing the media — will that strategy work in a general election, he wants to know? When Bill asked me about that I told him the strategy won’t work as well in the general election, because bashing the media obviously goes over best with conservatives who…

ABC Lets Newt’s Ex Unload… Then Advises Us to Take Her ‘With a Grain of Salt’

Newt Gingrich, Marianne Gingrich

With Conservatives Like These…

Mitt Romney

Santorum, Gingrich and Perry, all condemned Mitt Romney’s Bain Financial for putting people out of work. If anyone should be sidelined, it’s Santorum, Gingrich and Perry. For one thing, as every conservative who isn’t running behind in the primaries knows, venture capitalists put their money where their mouths are. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, as the…

Will Any of the Republican Candidates Go Out With Their Dignity?

It’s been disheartening to see how this year’s Republican presidential candidates have behaved in response to dropping poll numbers. The campaign started out so optimistic with each candidate eager to make an impression on the viewing public. They all spoke out proudly about their conservative principles and how they would apply those principles, if elected,…

Is “President Gingrich” Really That Frightening?

gingrich

It’s important for a political party to question the electability of its candidates, especially when it comes to the presidency. If a candidate isn’t electable in the general election, it matters little how popular he or she is with the base. Thus, I totally understand Republicans’ reservations with Newt Gingrich. The man carries a lot…
