The Fundamental Problem with a Jeb Bush Presidency (and a Hillary Clinton one)
I want you to do something you will not want to naturally do. You too Laura Ingraham. I want you all to do this because I consider it very important. I want you to presume you agree with Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton (your choice) on everything. I want you to presume that Jeb or Hillary is the ideal candidate in your mind. I know | Read More »
Hillary Clinton’s e-mails at State Department were entirely private #2016
This is cause for some concern. WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record. Mrs. Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides | Read More »
Obama’s Executive Amnesty is Much, Much Worse than You Think
Unless you are one of Obama’s bootlickers in the Senate, you probably are under the impression that Obama’s executive amnesty is a bad idea even if, like me, you are somewhat squishy on the issue of immigration itself. But however bad you thought it was that Obama is seeking to unilaterally rewriting a law that is constitutionally within the exclusive purview of Congress, you will | Read More »
Hillary Clinton STARTED OFF as the villain. How does she plan to become the hero?

Boehner looks for a life line… from the Democrats
As we saw last week, Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A%‘s leadership has become so weak that he’s being forced to subcontract the Speakership to minority leader Nancy “no really, I never have to blink” Pelosi. His attempt to fund DHS for three weeks was rejected by the House, he lost 51 GOP votes. The week long extension passed because Pelosi whipped | Read More »

My Candid Candidate Thoughts After CPAC
Watch out conservatives. Jeb Bush is in this to win this and he just might. I met privately with Governor Bush at CPAC. He struck me as far more polished than many of the other candidates and he clearly recognizes the quality, however superficial it might be to some, of looking the part. More interesting, I have a ton of friends who like him. They | Read More »
Judging: it is the Christian thing to do
There is a saying among theologians and those who use theology in their arguments that “text without context is a pretext.” The Bible if full of “proof quotes” that the mostly Biblical illiterate use to make what they think is a killer point when arguing with a Christian. Here are a couple of the favorites From the story of the Woman Caught in Adultery (John 8:6-7): | Read More »

A few days ago, Wisconsin Governor and potential presidential nominee Scott Walker was trolled at a meeting of the National Governors Association: Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a prospective Republican presidential contender, said Saturday he does not know whether President Obama is a Christian. “I don’t know,” Walker said in an interview at the JW Marriott hotel in Washington, where he was attending the winter meeting | Read More »
Battle of New Orleans revisited
Our land victories in the War of 1812 were few an far between. If you view the happenings from the viewpoint of engagements between US forces (regular and militia) and British forces, and exclude skirmishes and battles fought with British Indian allies then the score approaches a shut out with a couple of ties (Chippewa and Lundy’s Lane). The signal American land victory of the | Read More »
Faith and the President
This is probably the best thing you will read today. Ana Marie Cox of Wonkette confesses to being a Christian. It is quite a great read. In it she references me and my statement on the President. She writes: I am not sure if there is anything Obama could do to make someone like Erick Erickson believe he is Christian in a “meaningful way.” For | Read More »
Jeb Bush and CPAC: how he answered some questions…
I suspect that these answers (via the Daily Signal) by Jeb Bush on immigration and Common Core questions will not much move the needle, one way or the other. Jeb Bush is clearly a capable public speaker… but. He has some unpopular opinions on the subject, and that is the meat of it. Whether that hurts Jeb Bush in the primary any more than it | Read More »
