President Obama has declined to outline a second term agenda. He doesn't say what he would do about the fiscal cliff that looms in just a couple of months. He hasn't addressed the glaring challenge of an aging population and entitlement spending that is careening toward insolvency.

He promises nothing more on Iran than to maintain ineffective sanctions.

Newt Gingrich presented a stark contrast between Republicans and Democrats on gasoline prices Saturday at the California GOP convention in Burlingame. Gingrich promised that if elected, he would bring gasoline prices below $2.50 per gallon.
"Thank you, thank you, EPA!"
Naturally I disagree with much of the opposition and my well-meaning colleagues on the left in regards to Keynes and his school of economics.
There is a revolution going on America. But it is not part of the Tea Party or the loud Occupy Wall Street protests.
