Trump Being Trump

Post-debate commentary continues unabated. As expected, all those immediate online polls showed a triumphant Trump. Never mind that they are all manufactured by the trolls who planned to overwhelm them regardless of how their candidate actually fared during the debate. Trump likes to tout those polls as genuine. Does he recall (well, I’m probably asking too much of him there) how Ron Paul always “won” those online polls after primary debates? If he doesn’t recall, perhaps he can ask President… Read more »

Trump Camp Complaints

Two major complaints are now emanating from Trump supporters, and I know those complaints well because I’ve had the same ones over the years. The first one is about how the media is biased in favor of Hillary Clinton. Well, we all knew that was going to happen—the Democrat always has the media on his/her side, so that’s nothing new. The second complaint is that the polls are skewed. The pollsters are deliberately getting the electorate into a mindset that… Read more »

The Clinton Polls

I’ve always said that polls this far out from a presidential election don’t mean much. That’s still true. They are, nevertheless, indications of trends at the present time—trends that may continue or reverse, of course—but trends regardless. The current trend for Hillary Clinton is not what she and her associates expected. Three key swing states—Iowa, Colorado, and Virginia—are showing indications that she is not very inevitable at all. In all three states, a recent poll puts her well behind Republican… Read more »

The Way Is Still Narrow

A flurry of news reports of late are touting polls that show fewer Americans identify as Christians. Good. We’re finally being honest. I mean, let’s get serious—more than 70% of Americans are really Christians? Don’t misunderstand me. I’m just as concerned about the decline in public profession of Christian faith as anyone, but there’s a clear difference between some type of acknowledgement of a vague definition of Christianity and the real thing. In the past, it always helped to call… Read more »

What’s Race Got To Do With It?

President Obama’s approval rating continues to drop. He’s in George W. Bush territory now, with the only thing keeping him from dropping further is the fanatical loyalty of those Americans who will cling to him no matter what he does. Why has he dropped so far? If you ask him, he’ll tell you the reason is racism. In fact, he recently commented, There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea… Read more »

The National Joke

Obamacare has become “the” national joke. When even late-night comedians who have never brought themselves to make fun of this president put Obamacare in their sights, you know he’s hit an all-time low. Polls show the same, as Obama now is regularly under 40% in his approval rating. All this criticism, though, has obscured Obamacare’s greatest success: Hey, you have to give credit where credit is due. The president’s “fix” for those losing their coverage, however, has been somewhat less… Read more »

On Barrycades & the Fantasy of Obamaworld

Did you see pictures of what happened yesterday? Veterans groups descended on Washington, DC, and picked up and carried the “Barrycades” from the WWII Memorial to the White House. Here’s some photographic evidence: The second photo shows the “Barrycades” being deposited on the lawn in front of the White House. Looks like some people have had enough. This administration’s attitude toward veterans has become one of the lightning rods of this “slimdown.” As I’ve noted in previous posts, there’s no… Read more »
