Romney has been endorsed by many pro-life activists and activist organizations.
Right off the bat, let it be known that Mitt Romney was my fourth choice among the GOP primary candidates.
Check my writing in this space from that time and you’ll see me talking up Gingrich, Perry, and Santorum, with barely a word in support of Romney. Since he won the nomination I’ve written a whole lot ... More
The respected Gallup poll sent stirrings through the political world this week with a poll showing that Mitt Romney is seven points ahead of Barack Obama in the national vote. If Gallup—the longest-running poll in existence is right—then forget the state-by-state calculations. It means the Republican candidate’s momentum will carry him to a solid win the Electoral College.
Whether or not the... More
Goya's "Saturn Eating His Son"? Or a candid shot of Mitt Romney "firing" a middle class laborer?
[Note: I spotted the Atlantic article in my Twitter feed with the note, "Thursday's Buzz?". If it is it'll be as much of a nothingburger as Big Bird and "Binderz!!1!!!1!1!"]
Okay, I’ll bite. Fr. Z-style.
The Atlantic has a semi-breathless article about a conference call Mi... More
Saddled with thousands of dollars of student loans and facing one of the worst economies in decades, recent college graduates are being forced to move back home at an alarming rate. According to a report released by the Pew Research Center this past March, the number of young adults living with their parents is the highest it’s been since the 1950s.
Oddly enough, polls continue to show that yo... More
I don’t buy the narrative being pushed by the Democratic Party that Governor Romney was in any way disrespectful, impolite or rude during last week’s presidential debate. He came off assertive, bold, and – to borrow a term from Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly – fresh. He needed to persuade Americans that he’s not the stiff-necked caricature Democrats make him out to be. And polls suggest h... More
Spotted on teh Twitters yesterday:
Obama in Columbus: “You give a tax break to millionaires, what’s he going to do with it? You can only buy so many yachts.”
— Alan Johnson (@ohioaj) September 17, 2012
It was supposed to be a laugh line, I assume. A real gotcha. Because Mitt Romney is rich and another tax break would mean he would have more disposable income, with which he wou... More

Last week in this space I offered the opinion that the Tampa Republicans had gotten carried away with the “you didn’t build that” rhetoric and moved President Obama’s words from this summer well beyond his original meaning. This past week was the Democrats’ chance to respond. And as is the case, in American politics, they responded not with truth, but with wild exaggerations of their own... More
The theatrics and trappings manufactured to display a person say something about the person being displayed.
Which of these scenes gives one the sense that the person making the entrance is comfortable in who he is, and is substantive enough not to need theatrics to “embiggen” him?
On the other hand, which screams “I’m compensating!” for a thin resume, a desperate nee... More
Raymond Arroyo interviewed Mitt Romney on the World Over last night. And he made it clear that a Romney administration would be supportive of religious liberty. Here’s an excerpt:
Raymond Arroyo: The Catholic community in this country and people across the faith spectrum were outraged by President Obama’s HHS Mandate – requiring abortifacients and contraceptives to be made available to ... More
