Columns & Commentary
Hope you enjoy my latest for Forbes on what I'm calling the 'sweet revenge of Bill Clinton.' Clinton's comments about the President's health plan telegraph a lot more about the future for him, Hillary and the Democratic Party. GOP beware. Read the whole piece HERE.
My latest column for Breitbart's Big Government takes a look at the potential for pro-growth, free market fiscal conservatives to reach trades union members who are still struggling to find work. The GOP has an opportunity to recast its messaging to appeal to these small business owners and skilled laborers who appreciate that bigger government means less work for them. Read the piece HERE.
My latest column for Epic Times is up and encourages the rudderless GOP to SHOW UP and actually get to work crafting a discernable agenda that produces results for a broad spectrum of constituencies. Obama's numbers on the economy are in the mid 30's. This provides an enormous opportunity for the pro-growth party to actually put forth a coherent vision. Read the piece HERE.
Political reporting has hit rock bottom as Anthony Weiner hijacks the political coverage of the NYC mayor's race. What does this mean for the future of political reporting? The dumbing down of American political discourse continues. Read the piece HERE. Thanks for tweeting, forwarding, posting etc.
I have little use for former presidents who make a living blasting the United States, but this time Jimmy Carter may just be on the right track. Our democratic process is faltering and it's the result of voter apathy, an entranched political class and a drift from Jeffersonian Democracy. Read the piece HERE at Forbes.
This week the President will try to deflect from recent scandals and recapture some of his mojo with a bold plan to save the world - again. Unfortunately it doesn't have a prayer of creating jobs or doing anything aout Climate Change. It's just another Obama road map to a mirage. Read the article HERE. Hope you enjoy it. Thanks for liking, posting, tweeting!
Ben Affleck is the 45th most trusted man in America. Really. Tom Hanks is number one. Anyone see a problem with that? President Obama didn't even make the top 50 in a recent Reader's Digest survey. For America to succeed we need to stop turning to two-dimensional figures who only tell us what we want to hear. We need a dose of reality. Read the piece HERE at Forbes.com. Enjoy!

May latest for Forbes challenges New York Governor Cuomo and legislative leaders to get serious about political reforms that will help curb political corruption. For them and all officials who talk big about reform, it's time to institute term limits, end the perpetual campaign by lengthening terms and reducing legislative sessions. Read the piece HERE.
My latest column for Forbes says what needs to be said - unfortunately- about the state of the Tea Party. Perceptions about the movement have been hijacked by radicals, social conservatives, media and progressives. Now is the time for a once powerful movement to take a more disciplined approach to rebuilding. READ THE PIECE HERE. Thanks for liking, tweeting posting etc.
Last week's tenth anniversary of the Iraq War gave opponents of the mission another opportunity to blast it as nothing more than a fool's errand. Their lopsided, almost entirely negative assessment does a grave disservice to the men and women - both military and civilian - who served so bravely. The Vietnamization of the mission also weakens America's standing on the world's stage. Read the piece HERE.
