Just Who is Middle Class Anyways?
Written today in USA Today In a sense, the Obamas face a dilemma that many upper-middle-class families do in most big cities: Open, egalitarian systems offer lots of school choices — but the best ones fill up fast (and admission each fall is by lottery if applicants outnumber slots). Still, few can match the offerings of pricey private schools. So, with each of the them | Read More »
Who is Rich in America
Who is Rich in America?Bye-Bye, American Pie Rick Warren asked the presumptive presidential candidates to define rich in America during the Saddleback forum. I like to hear candidates answer a simple question with a simple answer. However, Pastor Rick did not provide enough information to properly answer this question. At the risk of breaking the rule of never answering a question with a question, I | Read More »

Nothing Is Above The POTUS Pay Grade.
Life’s hardest decisions are exactly that; hard, gut-wrenching dilemmas with no pure 100% answer. Rick Warren subtly and unobtrusively laid one of those dilemmas in Barack Obama’s lap during The Saddleback Summit on Saturday Night. Rev. Warren asked Senator Obama when he believed human life began. Barack Obama answered that it was above his pay grade. This delightfully ambiguous phrase can mean several things.
This is the kind of mentality we’re up against
I was reading the 360 blog on CNN (I like to be amused sometimes) and saw an entry titled “Is the Tide Turning?” The entry wasn’t too bad, surprisingly for CNN, but I had to read the comments. While many are in the same vein – Waah, John McCain cheated – this one stood out for me: Donna A. Reuter, Bremerton, WA August 18th, 2008 | Read More »
A Challenge To The Obama Camp
I think the simple answer to the debate over why John McCain was better-prepared to answer questions about faith and politics than Barack Obama on Sunday is this: if the Obama camp thinks McCain had an unfair advantage not going onstage until after Obama was questioned…..then why not fix that by agreeing to more events where they are on at the same time? Hello? Hello? | Read More »
Obama gets facts wrong on Bosnia
Obama on Bosnia at Saddleback 8/16/2008: I THINK YOU TAKE AN EXAMPLE LIKE BOSNIA WHEN WE WENT IN AND UNDOUBTEDLY SAVED LIVES. WE DID NOT HAVE UN APPROVAL BUT THERE WAS A STRONG INTERNATIONAL CASE THAT HAD BEEN MADE THAT ETHNIC CLEANSING WAS TAKING PLACE. Anyone interested in the difference between John McCain and Barack Obama on key issues of conscience should watch the Saddleback | Read More »
Conviction is the Key for John McCain
Tonight I saw a Reaganesque John McCain for the first time this campaign.While Barack Obama took great strains to make sure his word choice was even-tilled and didn’t isolate anyone; John McCain demonstrated he is a made of conviction, adhering to basic conservative principles. Whether Rick Warren asked a question regarding abortion, taxation, or “what SCOTUS jurist would you have not nominated”: the major theme | Read More »
Rick Warren Goes to Washington
I wrote a while back about the two presidential candidates’ upcoming appearance at Saddleback. In that post, I wondered whether Rick Warren would have the courage to ask difficult questions of the two candidates, especially concerning Obama’s stance on abortion. Well, it looks like I’m not the only one wondering about these things. Hunter’s open letter to Rick Warren, challenging him to force Obama to | Read More »
