Think a change of administration only matters if the incoming President can pass legislation? Here is a list of Justice Department jobs from the “Plum Book” which are filled at the discretion of the President. While legislation is important, these positions and hundreds more, will make the day to day decisions...

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.

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...

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.

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.

The heart of Obama’s tax plan is taking from the “rich” and giving to the less rich. Yet Obama’s tax plan is based on a fallacy that the “rich” will not change their economic behavior in reaction to higher tax rates.

History tells us, however, that economic redistribution plans fail because the...
