Oct 31 2014 11:50am CDT | Source: Big Government

This article by Col. Bing West originally appeared at the Hoover Institution: Forty-three percent of voters ranked the economy as the top issue in the 2014 midterm election, versus 15% who cited foreign policy.1 Yet 62% said they were very concerned about terrorism, the largest percentage polled since 2007, before the war turned around in Iraq.2  So why is the public both concerned and yet not concerned? The answer is that America’s leaders are providing no direction. Our soldiers and ...

I read a shocking headline today: “Ex-Con: Most Black Youths See Obama As ‘Deadbeat’ Leader.” Is this an obvious outlier, or could there be something to this? The ex-con referred to in the headline is Paul McKinley, a member of Voices of the Ex-Offender, which is described as a grass-roots group of former inmates. On the “Steve Malzberg Show” on NewsmaxTV, McKinley said: “Every time they question the president about the black community, he’s apologetic ...

The Second Term Midterm Presidential Curse

Oct 30 2014 11:28am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

If President Obama loses the Senate on November 4, it will not be so much a mar on his presidential legacy as it will be a continuation of a recent two-term presidential tradition. Our last four full two-term presidents, Eisenhower to Bush II, have concluded their final two years in office without the support of either house of Congress. Seemingly, the populous becomes weary of any president regardless of party, if he is too long on our television a ...
