Obama’s Debt Whiff

I hate when people say, ” Can you imagine if x had said that?! Huh…huh.  Can you imagine.” But can you imagine if Mitt Romney had no idea of the size of the federal debt?  Somehow, there wasn’t so much follow up to this one.

Open Season on Womney

Get your bow; get your arrows: It’s open season on Mitt Romney. Much of the news media isn’t even pretending anymore. With 49 days to go before the election, we are witnessing an old-fashioned game of kill-the-carrier, with a football sewn into Romney’s jersey. The Republican candidate cannot come to his feet before being hit, again and again. […]

Our Mysterious President

Whenever a candidate I am working with gets skewered by the press, I take comfort in the altruistic notion that the Fifth Estate is an essential ingredient to a fully baked democracy. Candidates need to be vetted, I tell myself while shouting into a pillow; it protects us from fraud and tyranny. At the end […]

The Economy Freak Out

Note to Westchester homeowners: Don’t get a reappraisal — unless you absolutely have to. This is one case where ignorance is better than knowledge. Trust me. My wife and I got our house reappraised last month. It was like a 2-by-4 upside the head. We knew it would sting, but we had no idea how […]

The Real Apology to Poland

Haven’t had reason to come to President Obama’s defense much these days, but the brouhaha over his “Polish death camps” misstatement is overblown. If you haven’t followed it, Mr. Obama mistakenly used the term “Polish death camps” in a speech where he clearly meant to say “Nazi death camps in Poland.” Many within the Polish government are […]

Quote of the Day, John Heilemann

  “For anyone still starry-eyed about Obama, the months ahead will provide a bracing revelation about what he truly is: not a savior, not a saint, not a man above the fray, but a brass-knuckled, pipe-hitting, red-in-tooth-and-claw brawler determined to do what is necessary to stay in power — in other words, a politician.” — […]

Obama’s Arkansas Question

President Obama finds himself in a bit of a primary fight in Arkansas. He probably didn’t see that one coming. But with a Texas prison inmate scoring 42 percent of the vote against the incumbent POTUS in last week’s West Virginia primary, there must be a delicious scent of mischief in the air among discontent […]

Romney the Extreme Moderate

The Obama campaign has worked for more than a year to position Mitt Romney as a moderate who would sacrifice his principles to win the Republican presidential primary. Indeed, Mr. Romney has been disparaged from every political direction as being a…God-forbid…centrist, so much so that that perception is now axiomatic. Ask a voter anywhere to use […]

Dems: Look Away from the Economy!

Senate Democrats, led by Machiavellian New York Senator Chuck Schumer, have become masters at the art of distraction.  The nation is $16 trillion in debt and without a budget for the third straight year, so what should we all be talking about?  Arizona immigration laws.  This is the latest feint from the Democratic Party to take the focus […]
