The election of Scott Brown on January 19th is truly a remarkable moment in American politics. But unlike some, I was not surprised. Too many political pundits seem not to understand Americans. (And yes, even Massachusetts voters are Americans.)

We are being betrayed by those we elected to represent us.

Back when people were tippy-toeing around the “s” word (“socialist”), and before he was elected, I called out Obama’s basic political inclinations for what they are - communist.

Of all the absurd accusations being tossed around in the wake of Congressman Joe Wilson's outburst during President Obama's address to Congress last week, the most ridiculous is that of New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd (surprise, surprise) and others, who have accused Wilson of being a racist.

The Lefties are at it again. Having completely destroyed that fine word, “liberal,” along with the enlightened 18th century sensibilities that went with it, they have now moved on like locusts through the lexicon, and want to be called “progressives.” An astonishing number of conservative commentators are going along with it.

Saying that health care is a “public good” sounds wonderful – the kind of statement with which no intelligent and compassionate person could disagree.

If Americans had any doubt how the liberal elite (Democrats in Congress, the press, the entertainment industry) felt about them before this month’s congressional recess, surely they must understand it now.

Just a couple of weeks ago, late-night comic David Letterman continued the media’s incomprehensible hatefest on Sarah Palin. (Incomprehensible at least in part because her ticket lost; for a losing VP candidate, she has remarkable and unprecedented staying power.) Part of his schtick that night included calling her a “slutty flight attendant.”

On Fathers' Day, we typically celebrate the men who gave us life, loved us, raised us, cared for us, instructed us. In that spirit, I wanted to honor the men whose vision, passion and courage gave us our country

How many Americans, enamored with über-Lefty Barack Obama’s promise of “hope” and “change” have stopped to consider what America will look like when made over in the liberal ideal? One need only look at GM and Chrysler to see what this presages for the rest of private enterprise in this country.

Obama has now been in office 100 days. Let’s review the Bringer of Hope and Change's record, shall we?

The American corporation has been the greatest creator – and distributor – of wealth in the history of the human race.

I have been plenty ashamed of my alma mater in recent years.

This is priceless. David Brooks is having a bit of "buyer's remorse" over Barack Obama?

Last week’s CPAC conference was apparently brimming with new conservative energy – and further admonitions that Republicans have to be more than just “the party of ‘NO.’”

Last week I gave my take on the trillion dollar “stimulus” package Obama and the Congressional Democrats shoved down America’s throat – that 1100+ page leviathan that no one read before it was voted on.

There is a principle called “Occam’s Razor,” which has been interpreted to mean that the simplest of two competing theories is usually the right one.

It is profoundly disturbing, therefore, to see Americans’ present-day responses to the current economic blip.

Only 72 hours after he took the oath of office, newly-minted President Barack Obama signed an executive order releasing federal funds to agencies that promote and provide abortion overseas.

With all due respect to Pat Buchanan, what no one seems to be discussing in all of this "auto bailout" morass is the fact that what the unions are to the auto industry, the Democrats are to the country.
