The Romney/Ryan ticket didn't lose because of Obamacare. Obamacare had, and still has, a solid majority who oppose it and want it overturned. In so far as Obamacare mattered at all in the election, it was that Romney took it off the table as an issue thanks to Romneycare. Romney lost because he was a poor candidate who inspired no one with a terrible record of flip-flopping that condescendingly spat on 47% of Americans.
This is the same old, big-tent, move-to-the-center, sell-out-conservatism schtick that the establishment's always sold us, but with slightly different packaging. Thanks but no thanks, Rand.
"On the other hand, while it’s certainly true that some of the most successful innovators and entrepreneurs never went to college -- Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are two famous names that come to mind" I don't know about Steve Jobs, but Bill Gates did go to college. He went to Harvard. He simply dropped out before graduating.

Last I checked, Tom Ridge was the openly pro-abortion governor of Pennsylvania that turned a blind eye to monsters like Kermit Gosnell. What I'm most thankful for when it comes to his service is that he left.
I'm relieved to see that Gosnell was convicted, and that he will finally be made to answer for the atrocities he perpetrated against the innocent and helpless. It's a good day for America, and gives me hope that justice will indeed flourish in the United States.
"This is probably an unfair characterization of people who habitually smoke pot" Since when was accuracy "unfair"?
It's time to board-up these places. From snipping the spines of babies with Gosnell, to this literal bloodbath, it's essential that abortion be brought to an end.
I have a better, conservative approach to immigration reform: enforce the law. That's it.
Bill O'Reilly is a moron. If he wanted to say that a secular argument is likely to be more persuasive, fine, and he even said as much for part of his segment. Where it gets to be idiotic from O'Reilly is when he says that you "can't" use the Bible, and insists that it has to be private beliefs which evidently have nothing to do with public policy. Sorry, but conviction motivates action Bill, and the use of the term "thumping" makes Christians out to be unthinking buffoons.
FYI, regarding the authors I find particularly the Romney advisor and Barbour relative troubling. The reasons for concern over the Romney advisor should be obvious (his campaign's debate prepper was Rob Portman who has come out for gay marriage, one of his advisors said he was an etch-a-sketch, another praised Romneycare, and of course Romney had his own 47% remarks, liking being able to fire people, saying Chick-fil-A voters weren't part of his campaign, severely conservative, etc) Henry Barbour is the nephew of Haley Barbour. Haley has said in the past that we need to stop talking about abortion (but he has been more than happy to make racially inflammatory remarks about blacks and watermelons as well as the Confederate flag).
Thank you Douglas MacKinnon! I agree wholeheartedly! Also, I can answer one of the questions you raise. "Who ordered and wrote this compromised RNC report?" From Crystal Wright's column a couple of days ago, the authors are: "Ari Fleisher, former spokesperson for President George W. Bush; Sally Bradshaw, campaign consultant to Mitt Romney and chief advisor to Governor Jeb Bush for over a decade; Henry Barbour, nephew of Governor and former RNC Chairman Haley Barbour; RNC Committeeman Glenn McCall and Committeewoman Zori Fonalledas."
