Dear President Romney,

 

Thanks for doing a great job as President. Please hang tough.

It’s sad that two years into your presidency, the MSM and FBI/DOJ is still investigating your campaign and other activities. I’m trying to keep score, so to speak, here are the big ones:

A cast of thousands (well, several) from Bill Kristol to Monica Crowley to Caitlin Huey-Burns of Real Clear Politics contribute to a symposium on whether the Trump presidency will have the same impact on the Republican Party at the congressional/state/local level as Obama. AKA “utter devastation.” More

  At San Diego Comic-Con (an event that used to be a convention for comic book fans that has mutated into Hollywood’s most bombastic marketing tool) last night, FX revealed the title for its seventh installment of its American Horror Story anthology series – American Horror Story: Cult.

President Barack Obama ordered a full-scale investigation of so called campaign-season cyber-attacks by the Russians for the purpose of creating doubt and confusion among the American voters, and questioning the safety of our election system as a result. News headlines state that not only has the CIA has found evidence of Russian tampering, through the […]

Here’s another interesting exit poll result. If you slice the electorate into “White Evangelical or Born-Again Christians,” on the one hand, and “Everybody Else,” on the other, Trump’s success in 2016 is entirely explained by better performance among White Evangelicals. White Evangelicals were 26% of the electorate in 2008, 2012, and again in 2016. More

Paul Krugman is a standout among NY Times columnists. Even in such generally deplorable company – Ross Douthat excepted — I find Krugman exceptionally wrongheaded and despicable. The Times had barely acknowledged Trump’s victory before posting Krugman’s prediction of financial catastrophe. The highlights: More

… A Government by the People, for the People

 

Before this election (long before this election), I moved here from Canada to live in the greatest country on Earth, and despite who wins tomorrow, it will still be the greatest country on Earth. Maybe not as great as we thought it was in the past, but there is still no place I’d rather live. I’m here here by choice, not by birth, and no matter who wins tomorrow, I will still chose to call this country home, because some things are worth fighting for.

America is not defined by who leads us, it is defined by the people who live here and call it home. Remember that as you look at your friends on Wednesday and the choices they made. This election has been so contentious because both sides see the other side as the cause of all that’s wrong in this country, when in reality, there is nothing in America that is not created by Americans.

 I watched a focus group on 60 Minutes, gathered by an independent researcher with 20 years of experience, bring all segments of society to voice their concerns during this election. He has never seen things this bad, yelling and talking over each other. The reasons emerged as extreme anger, actual suffering, job losses, companies shipping […]

Well, we’ve almost reached the end of this agonizing election season, and it seems that the bizarre developments are likely to keep coming even in the last few days.

Whenever I feel a bit down about the choices in this election, I remind myself that one of our two chief tormentors will lose the election. One of them on November 8th will suffer a magisterial humbling at the hands of the electorate. If Hillary loses, we will see the backs of the Clintons forever (or […]
