The right’s unwitting Obama apologists
I hate to break it to those deniers who believe that President Obama’s tax-guzzling capacity has somehow been diminished by the fiscal cliff provision to fix “permanent” tax rates.
Obama vs. America’s fiscal health
The reason President Obama and Republicans can’t come to an agreement on the fiscal cliff negotiations is that they don’t share the same goals.
God suffers with us
How could an all-powerful, all-loving God permit such horrors to occur? Indeed, isn’t the prevalence of evil in the world a major reason so many people through the years have rejected the notion of a personal God altogether?
Conservative media are not the problem
It is really getting old to hear liberal politicians and pundits complaining about conservative media as being destructive.
Make Obama pay for his bullying tactics
Boehner must sprint to the national microphone and tell the American people that Obama is being unreasonable, reckless and uncompromising.
Obama Barreling Toward Real Fiscal Cliff
Many of us warned that Obama is not, by nature or ideology, a conciliator. He is not a centrist, and he’s not someone who is interested in the other side’s ideas. He knows what he wants to do, and he is hell-bent on doing it. He is not just playing hardball as a matter of strategy; he has no interest in compromise and is angling to get his way entirely.
Social Conservatives: GOP can’t live without them
One of the largest elephants in the GOP’s post-election room is the fate of Christian and other social conservatives.
The GOP: A most unpopular majority party
In his fundamentally transformed America, President Obama has replaced “e pluribus unum” with “us against them.”
Obama’s hostile and evasive presser
Obama’s first post-election press conference, if you could call it that, tells us a great deal about his attitude and the approach he intends to pursue in his second term.
Before we give up, could we at least try selling our ideas?
Republicans could be defeatist and throw in the towel, or abandon our ideas and seek to become mini-liberals, but both choices are suicidal.
