Fake News Alert: Politico Mischaracterizes What Trump Said

Look at this. See if you can spot the “mistake.” Here is a headline for a story Politico has had on its website all day. Below a photo of Trump looking all nasty and ugly is a headline that declares he thinks “our relationship” with Germany is bad for the United States. And yet, that’s not at all what he said, according to Politico’s own account:

Kerry Still Struggling with “War”

Just look how pathetic this is. You are asking our nation to go to war. And yet you cannot even call it a war. You don’t even look like you know what the Hell it is. So how do you get people to prepare for the sacrifices ahead? How do you galvanize them toward victory? This isn’t some damn college political science seminar. He says

Politico Nails Mainstream Media for Liberal Bias

A recent article in Politico has stirred up a little firestorm in Washington, with the mainstream media and liberal blogs taking umbrage at a rare example of one corner of the MSM calling out the other for liberal bias.

Santorum’s Contemptuous Certainties

I have strong concerns about Rick Santorum. I believe he shows a kind of intolerance toward dissenting opinion that is unacceptable in a president.

The campaign and the White House have put out word recently that they and the boss are buoyed by recent positive numbers on the economy, a rise in Obama’s polls, and signs of deeply ingrained ineptitude plaguing their

Obama’s State of the Union from Mars

Hey everyone. I published a piece this morning in POLITICO titled “A State of the Union from Mars.” You can read it here. The point is that Obama in his speech ignored the real perils facing the country – war, terrorism, Iran, North Korea and the deficit – while focusing instead on the presidency he wants to have, one with lots of pleasant domestic policy

Obama Edges Toward Demagoguery

Please check out my latest piece for POLITICO. It, um, doesn’t pull any punches. Below are the first two paragraphs to give you an idea. You can get to the whole piece at POLITICO by clicking here. President Barack Obama makes legitimate, mainstream arguments when he says it is dangerous for millions of dollars in untraceable funds to be used to fund political attacks and

My Latest POLITICO Article

In this piece, I take on Maureen Dowd and her assertion Sunday that Americans are an obtuse herd of cattle with respect to Obama, Islam and the Ground Zero mosque. You can take a look here.

A Piece I Did for POLITICO Today

Obama moves to the middle. I’m thinking maybe Gibbs’ recent “mistatements” about liberals were actually designed to provoke them and show Obama at odds with the left. They’ve been casting him as more moderate of late. Here’s the link: Obama Moves to the Middle.
