There are two types of people when it comes to predicting presidential elections: those who go by numbers, and those who go by feel. Count me among those who go by feel.
This doesn’t mean polls are unimportant or that math doesn’t matter, but given the vastly dissimilar predictions churned out by pollsters like Scott Rasmussen and The New York Times’ Nate Silver, it seems like anyone can sl... More
It is impossible to deny, by any objective measurement that the re-election of campaign of President Obama is running in reverse. There is no polling data that suggests he’s recovered the momentum he lost after the first debate in Denver. The polling averages of RealClearPolitics, as reliable a barometer as any, since it meshes everyone’s data has consistently showing Mitt Romney with a slight... More
In the courtroom, you are asked to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
In politics, our elected officials stick to a different standard. No one is really surprised by this. A politician describes the country’s current situation and their own views in the best possible light. They put a silver lining on all bad news. They oversell their own plan as the only real way to ... More
Bush 41 looking at his watch during the 1992 debate. Obama looking disengaged during the 1st debate of 2012.
It’s almost like Clint Eastwood was vindicated. “Empty chair! See what I mean?”

Ever since Barack Obama won the Democratic presidential nomination back in 2008, there’s been talk of making Hillary Clinton his Vice President. The combination of an African American and a woman on the same ticket would not only confirm that the Democratic Party is the party of progress, it would provide Hillary Clinton a launching pad for the White House in 2016.
Now that Democrats have had th... More
With Mitt Romney’s selection of Paul Ryan to be his vice-presidential candidate last weekend, the Republican ticket has ratcheted up the importance of Ryan’s home state of Wisconsin. The Badger State has only gone for the Republican candidate three times in the last ten elections and in each of those three (1972, 1980, 1984), the GOP won at least 44 states nationwide. Now the question is wheth... More

Does the president really impact the billions of daily transactions that make up an economy?
The state of the economy is the big issue in the 2012 presidential election, as it is in every presidential race. But is this really logical? An “economy”, after all, is not a set of policies promulgated by the government. It’s the collective result of literally billions of transactions every day. H... More
Obama spent big on his campaig in the last month, but his polling went the wrong direction.
On a weekend where the baseball world watched the low-budget Oakland A’s & Toronto Blue Jays deliver series sweeps over the lavishly funded New York Yankees and the well-heeled Boston Red Sox respectively, maybe it’s appropriate that the president of the United States also found out that money per ...
