Why do Conservatives insist on getting in their own way? They couldn't have asked for a better week, one White House scandal following another like so many tumbling dominos.Tags Politics
The only way I know we still live in a relatively free nation is that, at times, the truth does come out. The IRS announced that, yes; it did give extra scrutiny to tax returns that included the name "tea party" or "patriot" as part of their exempt applications.
When the horrific news from Boston broke, I was on the air with Cam Edwards, host of Cam and Company. CNN's National Security Analyst Peter Bergen and Esquire blogger Charles J. Pierce suggested the bomber could have been a "right wing extremist" since, after all, it happened on April 15th - tax day across the country and Patriot's Day in Massachusetts.
At a committee hearing in the Florida legislature on a proposed "Born Alive Bill," Planned Parenthood's Alisa Lepolt Snow stunningly asserted that the fate of a child who survives a botched abortion should be left to the discretion of the mother and her doctor.

In a recent column in The Christian Post, I discussed President Obama's "selective amnesia" in his State of the Union speech. His "Fix-It First" and "protect Americans abroad" proposals were simply rehashes of old campaign speeches (and since he's been campaigning almost non-stop for five years, he has plenty of material to work with.) I also talked of Obama's spending, and the $6 trillion (and counting) added to the national debt so far.
In the State of the Union, President Barack Obama engaged a series of lofty goals and challenges for the American people, and for Congress. He railed on education, military preparedness and spending. It was all vaguely familiar. He has said just the opposite over the past four years. It's easy to explain; President Obama lied has selective amnesia.
When Karl Rove, the defacto Capo of the Republican establishment intelligentsia, took aim at the grassroots activists (the Tea Party), offering them up like Issac for sacrifice to the mainstream media and independent voters, he surely doesn't expect them to prostrate themselves at the Altar of Rove.
