Romney Thumped in SC, Gingrich Soars

    The outcome of the South Carolina Republican presidential primary has turned the race upside down with presumed front-runner Mitt Romney losing badly to New Gingrich 41% to 27%.

    Keystone Cop in the White House

    The Obama administration has stopped the Keystone XL pipeline for now. This is to appease his radical environmental supporters. The pipeline’s builder TransCanada is expected to apply again to build the pipe, possibly on a different route. Meanwhile Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper has warned that Canada may sell the oil to China if the pipeline to US refineries is permanently blocked. So… so much for | Read More »

    Perry Out, Gingrich Roars

    For those of us who were in the room last August at the RedState gathering in Charleston, South Carolina to see Texas governor Rick Perry announce his intention to seek the Republican presidential nomination, Perry’s withdrawal from the race is a sad event.

    Anti-Bain Attacks are Counterproductive

    Many of us on the “right side” of the issues are criticizing two Republican presidential candidates for their attacks on Mitt Romney and his private-equity firm Bain Capital. We expect critiques of capitalism from the simple-minded and agenda-driven Democrats, not from Republicans. Because we know that capitalism, with all of its imperfections, is the only system that actually produces and distributes wealth throughout society i.e., | Read More »
