I thought it was disrespectful and racist to boo, even on policy matters. At least that’s what we’re told when there is a virtual boo of Obama in the right blogosphere, or someone shouts out at Obama. Now I don’t think there was a racial motive to the booing of Romney when he…

The whole outsourcing attack on Romney is stupid, because there’s no evidence he actually outsourced jobs abroad, and being able to use global labor where there is no American equivalent makes American corporations more competitive. The question is whether there were any abusive means used, and there are none as to…

Sympathetic reporters in the MSM are practically giddy that Elizabeth Warren’s Cherokee problem has not hurt her fundraising. Warren’s Second Quarter haul of $8.6 million brings her total fundraising to over $24 million.  In June, as Warren’s obfuscation on the Cherokee issue was in full throttle and as she ducked a group of Cherokee women…
