    Bob Bennett: Sore Loser

    We’ve commented here a number of times recently that Bob Bennett has gone out of this way to trash the tea party movement since they defeated him for re-election. I guess that is understandable.Well, today we’re getting word that Bob Bennet’s son is now working for the Democrats in Utah.How fitting. Jim Bennett, the son of Sen. Bob Bennett who ran his father’s campaign for | Read More »

    Handel vs. Deal

    In my newspaper column today I make clear I am sticking with Karen Handel in the Georgia GOP gubernatorial primary. This is the silliest thing. It is virtually unheard of for a candidate going into a runoff with a greater than ten point lead to lose the runoff.

    Lame Duck Session Is Happening

    The Deficit Reduction Commission will have its proposals back as soon as the election is over. It is intentional. They don’t want to drop off a politically unpopular set of proposals before the election, lest voters reject people who support them.Instead, they’ll have the package of tax increases out right after the election.Congress will have a lame duck session to vote on them, banking on | Read More »
