Finally. A Leader.

    I had originally planned to write this diary yesterday but life interfered and you know what they say about the best laid plans. Anyway, today I awoke to this piece from Linda Chavez.  It’s a good summary, but it glosses over so many of the more important points.  Still, in the interests of fairness, I am guessing that Linda Chavez didn’t attend the townhall meeting | Read More »

    Obama – Another Test of Leadership

    As I had stated in an earlier post, Obama faced a test of his leadership when dealing with Iran and North Korea. Despite all of his bluster, both of those countries have continued down the same path toward nuclear capabilities despite Obama’s inexperienced and amateurish tactics. One would always hope that the leader of your country would learn from past mistakes. The question becomes: Has | Read More »

    I don’t care if you are re-elected

    GOP Senator.  Congressman. Congresswoman. Governor. State Legislator. Elected official: I don’t care about your polling.  I don’t care if you want to be re-elected.  I don’t care if you are defeated and have to rejoin the civilian world. All I care about is that you fight the fight.  Work your a** off to decrease the size, scope, cost and intrusiveness of government. Help restore our | Read More »

    We as a people own our leadership’s decisions too

    I have a friend who blogs the scripture behind a Bible study he wrote on pride. Today’s entry, while short and found here makes those who are governed just as accountable for the failures of their leaders as the leaders are for their own failures. Given the current Republican leadership decisions that are appearing to once again head down the path of failure, I thought | Read More »

    Obama’s leadership rating falls to a new record low

    New Rasmussen Reports polling finds only 37% of likely voters think President Obama is doing a good or excellent job as a leader. Forty percent rate his performance as poor. The poll’s finding represents a huge shift in opinion from just a month ago after Obama delivered his State of the Union speech. Back then, 47% of voters viewed Obama’s leadership positively. Other interesting findings | Read More »

    Chicken

    So President Obama believes the U.S. economy is still in the game-playing stage does he? It’s certainly the way the Democrats act right now–that the economy is fine enough that they’re willing to play a game of political chicken. These are the same folks who brought a comedian to testify to Congress. These are also the same people who lost in November. No one believed | Read More »

    Just Cut It Already

    Many of us didn’t even like the Republican “Pledge” to America. But there they were, those bastions of Republican leadership promising this and that (because what we need from politicians are more promises). Well, they promised to save $100 billion in spending in the first year. But suddenly, they’re debating what the definiton of the word “year” is, and whether we should “annualize” the cuts | Read More »

    John Thune: Skill versus Leadership

    I have to be honest. I like John Thune. He’s a nice guy with a great family. I saw him stand in front of several hundred Hill staffers years ago and say, “I am a follower of Christ. This is what I believe and why.” It was a bold statement. But I was intrigued by the statement Mitch McConnell made a few days ago to | Read More »

    To Touch the Face of God

    They say Obama is channeling Reagan. Does anybody believe that? How can anyone in the media who was alive during the Reagan years let Obama get away with that? Pimps, that’s what the Lamestreamers are. . . but not The Washington Times. Listen to President Reagan as he speaks about the Challenger disaster, January 28, 1986: “We mourn seven heroes … who escaped the surly | Read More »

    To All Advocates of Higher Taxes : Put Up or Shut Up

    A recent post reminded me there are innumerable individuals that constantly advocate higher taxes as inevitable and necessary. Many are very wealthy, and a few notables taking this position are Warren Buffett, and just about every Democrat politician. Usually the left treats public advocacy of higher taxes as the ne plus ultra evidence of “leadership”. However, they are missing a golden opportunity to provide both | Read More »

    Herman Cain on the Intangibles and Continuity of Leadership

    From the diaries. – Caleb Only last week I wrote a piece The Next President, Seeking a Legacy of Leadership, in which I responded to a commenter with:..I’d love to be able to talk to many of the candidates… …and lo and behold, a member of Herman Cain’s staff calls to ask if I’d like to talk to Mr Cain. So, on New Year’s Eve | Read More »
