Most Americans today are anxious to put party aside and race, for that matter. What we should want to know from Herman Cain is what he wants to do for the future, not what he thinks about politics of the past. ... more

Jeff Jacoby - Mon Oct 10

If you work hard, play by the rules, save your money, create jobs, and make a success out of yourself, President Obama and the Democrat party will plunder everything you have worked so hard for, because in their view that is only fair. ... more
