What did Nancy Reagan ever do to Obama to deserve being mocked at Obama’s first press conference? Not only inappropriate, but telling. UPDATE: Obama apologizes.

Barack Obama is one of the most aggressive politicians this nation has ever seen, but his aggression is masked by soothing talk and words of hope. Is it really surprising that Obama has named

What took so long? Finally, a rational reaction to media bias, but alas, too little, too late.

An excellent article by Quinn Hillier, Saul Alinsky Takes the White House, makes a point similar to what I made in my article, Will Obama’s Election Result in One Person, One Vote, One Time? Hillier points out that it will not be easy for conservatives to recover because the Alinsky model...

In the video below, Obama supporters celebrating his victory unfurled the flag of the former Soviet Union. I assume these young revelers, just back from class on deconstructing everything that supposedly is wrong with the United States, have never read the works of Alexandr Solzhenitsyn, or heard of the Gulag, the...

Take a deep breath. Get a little sleep. Don’t bother with finger pointing and recriminations. Don’t blame Sarah Palin, she’s the only thing that kept this race competitive. We can’t change history, but we shouldn’t draw the wrong conclusions.

This country remains a center-right nation (just look at some of the ballot...

Obama already has declared that people who want to keep their hard earned money are selfish, now keeping your own money is a “simplistic notion”

As we conclude this final day before the election, the arguments have been made, the advertisements run, and the cash spent. Through all the noise, the essential decision facing the American people has not changed.

It’s all about trust.

I trust John McCain. Although I have never met him, I feel I know...

Robert Shiller’s recent article, Challenging the Crowd in Whispers, Not Shouts, addresses the phenomenon of Groupthink in understanding speculative economic bubbles. Groupthink is a concept developed by Yale psychologist Irving L. Janis to understand why “experts” fail to speak out publicly to warn that the speculative bubble will burst. As described...

“One Person, One Vote, One Time” describes the phenomenon of democratic [with a small d] societies electing leaders who intend to change the institutions of government to ensure their own political survival.

Delusion is a dangerous thing. While the polls have tightened, and anything is possible, Obama still appears headed to a victory. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

Given the zeal with which the Obama campaign, it supporters, and the mainstream media have attacked anyone who dares criticize The One, those...

My article, A Harvard Trial Lawyer for McCain, is being picked up by blogs and websites, and spread by unknown persons in mass e-mails, generating mostly postive comments (some nasty e-mails, but that goes with the territory).

One of the nagging questions of this election is the emotional, almost violent, reaction of Obama supporters to Sarah Palin. The absurd and offensive verbal abuse hurled at Palin has been unprecedented, and the mainstream media has led the charge. But why?

It has been a while since I have agreed with Thomas Friedman, but Mr. Friedman has a good observation on the economic forces which may lead to the collapse of the Iranian regime:

Under Ahmadinejad, Iran’s mullahs have gone on a domestic subsidy binge — using oil money to cushion the prices...
