Icarus Obama Falls to Earth

Remember the story of Icarus from Greek mythology? The precocious young man is given wings of feather and wax from his father, the master craftsman Daedalus. “Don’t fly too close to the sun,” the cocky youngster is admonished.

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.

Politico is reporting that Texas Governor Rick Perry will all but announce his candidacy for President in South Carolina on Saturday.  The fact that he’s planning to run isn’t exactly a secret, but lots of candidates get right to the edge of the pool and never jump in.  This suggests he’s already in mid-air.  The interesting thing to watch over the next […]

The Bachmann Headache

Starkly different reactions out of the Romney and Pawlenty camps on Michele Bachmann’s reported migraine attacks reflect not so much the opinions or character of those two candidates, but their very different position in the polls. Pawlenty has said it is an issue — although he’s now half- walking it back — and Romney has […]

Huntsman Shows Life; Goes Negative

The one thing you don’t want to be in a crowded presidential field is the front runner.  The front runner gets all the media scrutiny and all the attacks from the also rans.  Mugging the front-runner on camera is how one gets attention in a race where one is being ignored. Members of the media covering his campaign will cover your campaign’s attack.
