As noted the other day, Hostess is seeking lidquidation of its operations rather than trying to emerge out of bankruptcy as a going concern because it could not negotiate the union concessions it said it needed.

Learning lessons from a failed campaign does not a circular firing squad make

Some amount of firing squad is needed in light of the loss this week of the presidential campaign.

Oddly enough, I’m not aiming at Mitt Romney himself. I agree with many commentators who say Romney emerged as a better candidate than expected, someone who came around to articulating a vision worthy of a Republican...

Fraud and hoax Is what several readers posted after their investigation uncovered the identities of the people behind the An October Surprise website.

Turns out the readers were right.  Once the identities were outed, the perps had to confess early:

Obama supporters take desperate swing at Tagg Romney

I really sense that Obama supporters are losing it, completely.  I sense fear in their stupidity.

After Big Bird and the contrived “binder” fauxtroversy, they have a new cause:  Tagg Romney threatened to take a swing at Obama when Obama called Tagg’s father a liar.

Of course, the entire quote makes clear this...

I watched the debate without the company of the Web or Twitter, so I was surprised afterward to see the consensus that Romney had wiped the floor with Obama.   I humbly disagree.  He did well.  He didn’t do well enough.

Last night was a major reason why so many people, including Professor...

I think it was a tremendous victory for Romney at the debate last night.  Usual caveats about there being a month to go, he still may be trailing in some key states, etc.

Romney needed to take his case directly to the American people because the media is out to get him.  He did...

Recently on CNN, Newt Gingrich appeared with Piers Morgan to discuss what Mitt Romney needs to do in order to ensure his campaign’s success.

The interesting part:

The campaign also released a statement from PriceWaterhouseCoopers on the Romneys’ tax filings over 20 years, from 1990 – 2009:

You remember Julia, the Obama campaign-issued woman who turned to government for help at various life stages. 

Those stages aptly were summarized in Iowahawk’s Julia’s Circle of Life.

Julia has come to symbolize the dependency state.  So I wondered what Julia must be thinking about Mitt Romney’s secret video about people taking responsibility...

I thought Romney gave an excellent speech.

It had a good mix of soaring rhetoric without veering into Greek columns territory.

Clearly the speech was intended to help neutralize the “war on women” theme, and I think it was effective.  I also was glad that the speech included a frontal assault on Obama’s...
