Romney for President announced yesterday the Catholics for Romney Coalition. While there has been a loosely organized effort to engage Catholics in the campaign, yesterday’s announcement makes things “official.”
The Romney/Ryan campaign released a statement announcing the coalition and explaining why Catholics are important in this election:
“I am honored to have the support of... More
[I should know better than to post something at 1 a.m. without letting myself read it with fresh eyes in the morning. Corrected a few errors and unclear thoughts and fixed the problem with the embedded video. --- Tom Crowe]
During the Democrat National Convention today a video played in which the speaker said, “government is the only thing we all belong to.”
Here’s the clip:
I didn’t want Mitt Romney to choose Paul Ryan because I thought Ryan should stay in the House to continue heading up the Budget Committee. That said, this is a bold and serious selection, and I like it.
Some thoughts, in no particular order:
1) Ryan is a serious plans and actions man, and has already shown his mettle in a policy fight. From schooling Obama to his increasingly displeased face... More
June 8, 2012: “The private sector is doing fine.”
July 13, 2012: “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that.”

Or, at least, his recent comments make it seem that way.

Charlie Wilson and his bud, Nancy Pelosi, sharing a laugh at a press conference.
Charlie Wilson, Catholic Democrat former pro-life former congressman from my district, OH-6, wants his seat back. He lost in 2010 to Republican Bill Johnson and is sore about it.
In an article in the Wheeling News-Intelligencer (that’s in West Virginia, by the way, across the river from the district… just ... More
I'm not going to call it a tax. Not gonna do it. Wouldn't be prudent.
Perhaps I’m an optimist. Perhaps I’m optimistically cynical. Cynically optimistic? But isn’t that sort of thing required in politics?
I join Jonah Goldberg and others who are miffed at Mitt Romney’s insistence on calling Obamacare a “penalty” rather than a “tax,” thus seemi... More
Updated: I removed a mis-placed reference to Libya pending more information and augmented my critique of Obama’s handling of the killing of Osama.
I know, I know: it’s not a fair fight, really. Charity almost compels me not to write something that puts “incoherence” and “Joe Biden” in the same sentence. Almost, but... More
