Even at Christmastime (perhaps because it’s Christmastime, because it’s a time for prayer and reflection), I think it’s important to remind you what America could become: the collision course toward disaster we are on. That path is so clear, there is no longer a debate. The proof is in. The proof is Detroit.
House Speaker John Boehner is negotiating like a man who believes he is already outflanked and defeated by President Barack Obama. As a Republican, I am embarrassed for Boehner and my party.
We don’t have a tax problem in America; we have a spending and entitlements problem. If I were in the GOP Congressional leadership, I’d never vote for a tax increase on anyone. Let Barack Obama pass a tax increase that sends the economy off the cliff by himself, then he can take the full blame.
Can the GOP really be this stupid? It appears many GOP Congressmen are suddenly willing to raise taxes. What utter fools. As Forest Gump’s mother (played by Sally Field) said: “Stupid is as stupid does.” And this is world-class stupid.
Barack Obama’s election, the events leading up to it and the way the media have treated Obama certainly seem to indicate that America has officially become a Banana Republic. You know, one of those places where leaders control the media and the election outcomes, too.
I predicted Mitt Romney would win big. What went wrong? I’ve been asked nonstop since Election Day, “Was your prediction based on hope or bias?” My prediction was based on a combination of scientific evidence and common sense that would tell you that in this economy, no President could be re-elected.
What a stunning and miserable day. Ronald Reagan gave us “Morning in America” — as in a new sunny morning. I feel like I just woke up in “Mourning in America” — as in mourning for the loss of this great country. And it’s all because, in politics, “nice” doesn’t work.
The Mitt Romney landslide I predicted on May 30 and in the media virtually every day since then is materializing. The signs are everywhere that Barack Obama is enjoying his farewell tour. These are the last days of his political career. Read on to experience the signs of the huge defeat coming today.
This is my last commentary before Election Day, perhaps the most important day in modern American political history — the day we stop Barack Obama and defend capitalism. My prediction is a Mitt Romney landslide led by Christian and faith-based voters.
I’ve gone through an almost two-year ordeal with the IRS which, I believe, was triggered by my vocal criticism of the Obama Administration. Americans need to hear this story of a small-business owner with an unblemished tax record suddenly facing this kind of harassment, persecution and intimidation.
