Four More Years…of exile. But there is hope. Please read my thoughts on where we go from here. –Steve I’m writing to you to explain why, even after a late and discouraging evening that stretched past 1am on the east coast, I was back at the office before 8am this morning. And why the sinking

The real impact of the VP debate could be a further erosion of Obama’s support in many Midwestern states, even states that should be solidly Obama. And it’s something that can only be understood by those who have lived in the Heartland (or happen to be married to a Heartlander, like me). The general thinking

The news that conservative media activist Andrew Breitbart passed away last night was sobering and challenging. It is sobering that life is so fragile. We are each one breath away from eternity. Breitbart was 43 years old and by all accounts just hitting his life stride. About three years ago, he assumed a more visible

Heritage Foundation has published its “2012 Index of Dependence on Government” and is reporting “a level of dependence on our government that has never been seen before.” Heritage reports that 67.3 million people depend on the government for assistance and 70% of the federal budget now is dedicated to “individual assistance programs.” Plus, Heritage reports

UPDATE 2/10 — It’s Happening Obama has announced his “compromise” on this issue. We’ve been “Stupaked.” See my original post from 2/8 below. Here are Action Items: Action #1 — CALL TALK RADIO Call national and local talk radio shows today and say, “WE ARE BEING STUPAKED.” When asked to explain, say: “Obama’s compromise is

The entire 2012 presidential election could well hinge on one number: the unemployment rate. Here’s my prediction: Some time around July or August, the official unemployment rate will dip below 8.0%. At that point, Obama will say that “unemployment is lower than when I took office” and will ride this one statistic to re-election. That
