A better look at LA CD-4 shows cause for concern
I had a chance back in November to meet John Fleming’s campaign strategist. He also happened to be congressman Paul Broun’s as well. Both men were in Augusta, GA the night before the general election and I enjoyed discussing politics and strategies with them both.

Credit Due: President Bush continues to keep us safe
With Mumbai attacks fresh on everyones mind and, if anything positive can be made of it, maybe it will be a jarring eye opener of just what is at stake with the war on the West.

“I, Barack Hussein Obama, Do Solemnly Swear…”
That is the question that is being kicked around by few folks in various parts of the nation. Will he or will he not use his full name to include, of course, the Muslim one ‘Hussein?’ In the past Obama opted not to be referred to using his middle name. Apparently it was a sensitive issue.

Louisiana Governor Jindal speaks in Iowa
The crowd was plenty. Nearly a thousand braved the cold and snow flurries in a state that has the most to say about who the Republican nominee will be. In Iowa, they like to pick them early and there are already a few who like what they see. By the time Gov.
