    With Sarah Palin and Chris Christie announcing that they really, really, really will not be running for President in 2012, we can settle into focused consideration of the nine Republican candidates who are still in the game.

    The longest Email, Hate mail edition ever! While some have accused liberalism of being a mental disorder, today's column shows that it might also be a learning disability.

    Finally there is clarity about the GOP field in the race to take on President Obama in the fall of 2012. The field is fixed. There are no more "possibles" out there.

    Over the course of the last few months, main stream media attacks on Michele Bachmann have intensified. Most of those attacks have been careless. Some have even taken aim at Summit Ministries, which is a place where I teach and where Michele has sent several of her children for Biblical worldview instruction. Michele and her husband have also attended Summit adult conferences held every spring in the Garden of the Gods near Summit’s campus in Manitou Springs, Colorado.

    Aside from their occasional entertainment value, GOP presidential debates serve to answer one crucial question above all: which of the candidates would do the best job in confronting Barack Obama in a series of fateful televised encounters beginning about one year from today?

    The presidential debates are looking more and more like symptoms of the problems we’ve got than part of the process of solving them.

    Cancer treatment has made great progress in recent decades, but the tragedy is that so much of our effort to combat this scourge is just that: treatment. Once a disease appears, there is only so much that can be done. It would be far cheaper, more effective and less traumatic to prevent it.

    The fundamental facts of the presidential race at this moment are that unemployment is high, the economy is by far the most important issue to American voters, and President Obama's handling of economic questions is overwhelmingly unpopular.

    “Florida elects Presidents,” said Michelle Bachman yesterday in—well-- Florida, which holds 27 of the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency. “Marco Rubio has the hallmarks of, I think, everything that a person would look for in a potential candidate,” she added. “He’s got so much going for him.”

    Rick Perry is brash, bold, and projects a thoroughly Texan ethos. By comparison, Pawlenty is a gentler, though earnest, Midwestern conservative. He hews so closely to the “Minnesota nice” stereotype that he looked visibly uncomfortable attacking Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann during GOP debates.

    As the 2012 presidential race gears up, leftist Christophobes are showing some signs of hysteria -- or political opportunism; it's sometimes difficult to tell.
