I enjoyed (maybe a little too much) listening to our married podcasters defending monogamy. I thought they’d hurt themselves climbing the moral high ground too fast. But, our fearless leaders did highlight an important point–the typical MSM have been awash in ‘alternative lifestyles’ and ‘monogamy outdated’ articles. I wondered why? I realize it’s coming up […]

Hillary’s Big Economic Speech Forgets About Obamanomics

 

052114hillary-600x298There was a weird moment during Hillary Clinton’s big-think economic speech the other day. The former Obama Secretary of State and current middle-class warrior had just finished ticking off a bunch of worrisome stats on income growth, income inequality, and social mobility. She really focused on how Canada’s middle-class is now supposedly richer than America’s in an economy with both more equality and a stronger safety net. Then Clinton continued:

That’s not how it’s supposed to be. We often think that we invented the middle-class. So what can we do about it? Of course, a lot depends on our leadership here in Washington and across our country. The 1990s taught us that even in the face of difficult, long-term economic trends, it’s possible through smart policies and sound investment to enjoy broad-based growth and shared prosperity. My husband gave a lecture at Georgetown recently …

Jim Geraghty, whose “Morning Jolt” is something I find myself reading every day now, put a piece out this morning on a “Truth Squad” being placed outside of Trey Gowdy’s Benghazi hearings (never mind that the Truth Squad hasn’t asked for the truth from Hillary Clinton herself), headed by Lanny Davis. The kicker: Said Squad […]

How Much Are We Entitled to Know About a Presidential Candidate’s Health?

 

Karl Rove is coming under fire — more than usual — for remarks that he made at a public forum in Los Angeles last week calling into question the nature of Hillary Clinton’s injury when she suffered a concussion in late 2012. As reported in the New York Post:

The official diagnosis was a blood clot. Rove told the conference near LA Thursday, “Thirty days in the hospital? And when she reappears, she’s wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that.”

Would you vote against someone just because their parent/spouse/sibling/third cousin is also a politician? Quin Hillyer argues that, all other things being equal, Americans should do just that. Of course all other things are never quite equal, so to some degree it’s a theoretical argument. But — their own individual merit or lack thereof aside, […]

That Old Clintonian Dysfunction

 

As Hillary Clinton is gearing up for another possible run at the presidency, Politico has written an in-depth story regarding Clinton’s love-hate relationship with the media. And it is mostly hate, as one of Clinton’s advisers is more than happy to admit: “Look, she hates you. Period. That’s never going to change.” I am more than willing to believe those words, and they point to why Hillary Clinton should never be president of the United States.

We are still being governed by an administration that claims to have been the most transparent in history, even though the record is clear that it is anything but. And this is an administration with relatively good relations with the media, featuring a president who has basically been a media darling ever since he burst on the national and international stage. If an administration with this many advantages when it comes to being able to charm the media still sees fit to make a mockery of transparency, what makes anyone think that in a future (Hillary) Clinton administration, there will be anything resembling more transparency, especially when one considers Clinton’s often-difficult history with the press?
