    David Frum knows who is to blame for what appears to be an Obamacare victory: Conservatives who refused to negotiate with Democrats even though Frum admits he has no idea if such negotiations would have resulted in a better bill.I do know. The bill which...

    There definitely is an anger in the country over the runaway spending and deficits, and the attempts by Democrats to force a wholesale restructuring of society through health care legislation, cap-and-trade and other policies designed to push government even further into our lives.But that anger...

    Gallup has come out with another of its surveys showing how different groups self-identify in terms of liberal-conservative-moderate.The headline of the Gallup release focused on the liberal leanings of Asian-Americans, but the survey also showed that "non-Hispanic blacks" self-identified slightly more conservative (29%) than liberal...

    What is wrong with this picture: We have the most liberal Congress and President ever, who are pushing an equally liberal agenda, yet the country is more conservative than in recent history.Gallup has released its 1992-2009 survey of political self-identification, and the result is that...

    I didn't get a chance to comment this weekend on Matthew Yglesias' ground-breaking announcement that the country has become "ungovernable" because the majority (Democrats) seem unable to run roughshod over the minority (Republicans) in the Senate:We’re suffering from an incoherent institutional set-up in the senate....

    The Speech. In Oslo. Oh my. He didn't apologize, as such. He spoke of a "just war." Of his obligation as President to defend the country. As if this all were a revelation.Ooooh. Aaaah. Says the vast right-wing conspiracy, in many and surprising places.It's all...

    Over the summer I repeatedly sounded the alarm about one particular aspect of the Democratic health care proposals, the mandate that individuals purchase insurance under threat of penalty or incarceration. At the time I noted the unprecedented nature of the mandate, in my post Taxing...

    This is my obligatory "Dede Scozzafava endorses Bill Owens" post. With a twist.Not sure what this all means two days before the election, except that it is clear that Dede belongs to the John Murtha party of pork-barrel politics.Scozafava's endorsement of Democrat Owens certainly was...

As if the critics of creeping government control of the health care and economic systems somehow were misleading an otherwise liberal population into...
