I have one suggestion for the Obama campaign and supporters thereof: Moratorium on the creepy campaign ads with choirs of children singing about how much of a savior President Obama is. There have been a few questionable ones in the past but this one, I think, reaches a whole new level. Please pay…

From reader Ken: I was driving through Durham, NC on Thursday and was behind this car. My dad and I could not stop laughing when we saw both bumper stickers. I think it sums up the entitlement society following Obama. I thought you and your readers might get a laugh from it.

Noted University of California – Berkeley economist J. Bradford DeLong has figured out why Mitt Romney is so far ahead in the Gallup tracking poll of likely voters. His theory  is that Obama supporters like him are only now figuring out where to vote, so they do not pass Gallup’s likely voter screen.  Apparently,…

In a race that has long been dubbed the closest Georgia Congressional contest, new developments suggest it may be slowly tilting in favor of incumbent Democrat, John Barrow. The Rothenberg Political Report is now handicapping Georgia’s 12th District congressional race as “toss-up/tilt Democrat” – with an assessment that U.S. Rep. John Barrow,…

Newt Gingrich points out that President Obama didn’t cancel his Las Vegas fundraiser the day after the Benghazi attack but has decided to stick close to the White House with Perfect Storm Sandy bearing down. Doing so gives the president an opportunity to look presidential, something that he hasn’t in the debates. But…

Newspaper endorsements only make a difference when the newspaper has power and when it crosses party lines.  The Providence Journal is the only statewide newspaper in Rhode Island, and while it doesn’t have the power it once had, it still is a big voice in the state.  The ProJo also leans heavily…

Democrat David Cicilline appears to be crumbling under devastating ads run by Brendan Doherty  highlighting Cicilline’s mismanagement of Providence when he was Mayor, his lies during the 2010 congressional campaign about Providence’s finances, and his soft law and order record. Doherty, the former Superintendent of the State Police with a stellar reputation, is…
