    I’ve been active in national politics since Ronald Reagan’s great victory in 1980, and I can honestly say that I’ve never seen the TV pundits display the level of insanity and stupidity that we see today. Regrettably, this sentiment applies to the press on both sides of the political aisle.

    One of Dictionary.com's definitions of blackmail is "to extort money from (a person) by use of threats." Substitute "taxpayers" for "person" and you have what the White House and congressional Democrats are doing with the debt ceiling.

    Well, it’s about time somebody had the guts to say it! It’s high time to quit coddling a mostly foreign-born ethnic group that brazenly supports-- and even harbors-- terrorists!

    As negotiations in Washington on this year’s budget (already halfway into the year that this budget is for) come to a head, the rumor mill points to a Washington-as-usual result. That is, split the differences down the middle.

    2012's political topography heavily favors Republicans, who appear well positioned to secure at least a bare majority next year if they competently manage their strong hand.

    The winner of the Republican presidential nomination will be the candidate who can best respond to the American people, who can listen to them and their concerns and provide leadership -- resulting in a candidate the voters will find more compelling the longer the campaign continues.

    Benjamin Brown French strung a banner across the full length of the western portico of the Capitol. The illuminated sign was legible up and down Pennsylvania Avenue. It read: "This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.” French was the capital’s commissioner of public buildings. He was not celebrating the Republicans’ election victories of 2010.
