My initial impressions of the Town Hall debate were reflected in my guest post at USA Today, Obama needed debate blowout but didn’t get it: The question as far as the election goes is who drove the narrative which matters. While Obama landed many class envy and “war on women” punches, Obama…

Best Tweets of the Presidential Town Hall Debate

Obama was much more animated, and I’m sure liberals on Twitter and elsewhere were happy much as during the Biden-Ryan debate. But I don’t think it helped Obama much. I’ll be interested to see the focus groups and polling. Obama got in some one liners, but Romney completely nailed it…

Presidential Town Hall Debate Night

Starts at 9 p.m. Eastern. It’s hard to imagine that Romney will crush Obama as badly as in the first debate.  It just has to be more even, which will be enough for the MSM’s “comeback kid” narrative which already has been written.  Maybe there was a time the media could drive…

The guiding principle of the then-new Progressive Movement more than a century ago was: The greatest good for the greatest number of people.  Which was verbatim the rationale invoked by President Teddy Roosevelt when, in 1905, he approved construction of the aqueduct that would steal divert water from the Owens Valley…

Unlike the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times doesn’t have a motto.  But if it did, this would work: All the news that’s fit to print for people who don’t know any better, reported by those who don’t want you to. Exhibit 7,593,648: A front-page story on how the drought is…

First it was union members being fined for not picketing for Elizabeth Warren.  Then it was Warren supporters taunting a gay staffer with Scott Brown’s campaign. Now black supporters of Scott Brown have received the sort of racially based taunts that we have seen directed in the past at Republicans and Tea Party…
