Revealing the Heart

He keeps revealing his true self in blatant ways. It’s almost as if he can’t help himself. The real heart of a man cannot be hidden; what’s on the inside will have to show up on the outside no matter how one may try to hide it. To what am I referring? President Obama’s comment in a teleprompter-less speech the other day to a campaign crowd. I’m sure most of you know which comment I mean—the one that demeaned individual… Read more »

All last week, the “green” scandals grew. The one getting the most press had to do with a solar energy company, Solyndra, that obtained a government-backed loan of more than half a billion dollars. The company was such a bad risk that the Bush administration refused the loan. Yet when Obama took over, it suddenly was on the table once more. To the credit of the government officials who investigated Solyndra, they steadfastly warned the White House not to go… Read more »
