Sandra Fluke Wants to Write Your Laws

Many in the Democratic Party–including those who occupy the big, white house at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue–believe that a person’s right to have someone else pay for birth control is so fundamental that it’s worth shutting down the Little Sisters of the Poor. Next time someone laments the rise of conservative “culture warriors” or trots out some lame [...]

Two Words That Catholics Need To Stop Using…Like Now

If you’re ever looking to play a rousing game of Bait the Redhead, may I suggest tacking one of two little adjectives onto the word “Catholic?” Those adjectives? Conservative and liberal. This is a long-standing pet peeve of mine (circa 2002), but all the brouhaha this past year over Pope Francis (“He’s sticking it to [...]

Obama and the Disillusionment of America

We have come a long way since the rock-solid convictions of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address and the high hopes of John F.Kennedy’s aim-for-the-moon and “ask not” rhetoric. The anniversaries we have just celebrated seem like they come from another country, not just another time. Call it the disillusionment of America. And Obama may have disillusioned more [...]

You CAN’T Keep It: A Feature, Not a Bug

In recent weeks, millions of Americans have been notified that they will not be able to keep their current health insurance plans. This despite the promise of President Obama that, as he said over and over again, “if you like your health-care plan, you will be able to keep your health-care plan. Period.” This was [...]

“Wendy Davis Is Pro-Life” and Other Lies That Nobody Would Ever Believe

  Texas state senator and gubernatorial hopeful Wendy Davis, who became the darling of the abortion lobby after her filibuster of the Texas bill banning abortions after 20 weeks, has declared that she is “pro-life.” Huh.  Really? No, not really. What she said is this: “I am pro-life.  I care about the life of every [...]

Remember Joe (“You Lie!”) Wilson?

This afternoon as I was thinking about the political scene, I suddenly remembered Joe Wilson, the Republican House member from South Carolina who vaulted himself to national notoriety by yelling “you lie” during one of President Obama’s speeches to Congress in support of his health care proposal during 2009.  Congressman Wilson was rebuked by many [...]

Vulnerable Senate Democrats call for delay in Obamacare rollout

Boy, when Republicans suggested delaying Obamacare, they were called “anarchists” and “terrorists” and such. But now Democrats in the Senate facing a tough reelection next year are running scared over the failed Obamacare rollout. Thankfully, they have a idea on what to do: “The problems surrounding the federal exchange for the Affordable Care Act are absolutely [...]

Iraq, Obamacare, and the Uncertain Future of American Politics

Now that the partial government shutdown is over, the news is becoming more focused on problems with the launch of the Affordable Care Act.  Writing in the New York Times, Ross Douthat offered this analogy: Like the Bush administration in Iraq, the White House seems to have invaded the health insurance marketplace with woefully inadequate [...]

Mitch McConnell isn’t the problem. Mark Begich is the problem.

There are many people today who are furious at Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker Boehner for accepting this deal and ending the shutdown. Not me.  I’m done with a fighting a losing battle. I’m more than happy to focus attention on the colossal on-going disaster which is the Obamacare rollout. The Defund strategy was doomed [...]
