    On issue after issue, in fact, the media haven't covered Obama as much as they've covered up for him, whether it's the dismal state of the economy, the failure of his policies or the increased troubles abroad. The effort worked remarkably well, helping to shield Obama from responsibility, protecting his image and providing a solid floor under his approval ratings. But ... the fact remains that the country faces huge problems that must be addressed. And after the election, the press is sure to churn out what can charitably be called "now they tell us" stories about these matters, once...

  • Ann Coulter: Do not underestimate the power of the incumbency.

    Ann Coulter was just on Hannity's Radio show and said something interesting. That Obama's advantage was his incumbency and voters traditionally do not unseat an incumbent president, no matter what. (examples: Clinton and W Bush). Reagan was the only Republican able to unseat the incumbent Carter in a 100 years. Her ray of sunshine was that in the coming elections of 2014 and 2016, Republicans will have a much better chance with voters (I'm paraphrasing her)...

    KABUL — Taliban insurgents told re-elected President Barack Obama Wednesday to admit that the United States has lost the war in Afghanistan and pull its troops out now. "Obama must by now know that they have lost the war in Afghanistan," spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said in a statement posted on the Islamists' website. "So, without further lying and delays, they should leave our sacred land and focus on their own country instead." Accusing Americans of committing war crimes, he added: "The American administration should stop acting like police in the world and focus on solving their own people's problems, and...

    ....[F]rom the beginning, campaign manager Jim Messina had promised a totally different, metric-driven kind of campaign in which politics was the goal but political instincts might not be the means. “We are going to measure every single thing in this campaign,” he said after taking the job. He hired an analytics department five times as large as that of the 2008 operation, with an official “chief scientist” for the Chicago headquarters named Rayid Ghani, who in a previous life crunched huge data sets to, among other things, maximize the efficiency of supermarket sales promotions. Exactly what that team of dozens...
  • Taking a leave of absence from FR

    I know FR may be getting a lot of these, but I am taking a leave of absence from FR. I don't know what to say about yesterday's election, except it fell way below our expectations. I usually come in and observe in here, and I was very hopeful we would win. But when results came out and we would not win, I just wanted to cry. Where has our country gone? This is not the country I know. In the meantime, I will leave FR until I feel the need to come back again. God bless you all for...

    In an unexpected twist in the Election Day tire slashing trial, four former Kerry-Edwards campaign staffers, including the sons of U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Milwaukee) and former Acting Mayor Marvin Pratt, have agreed to plead no contest to misdemeanors. The plea agreements came in the middle of jury deliberations after an eight-day trial on felony property damage charges that carried potential 3 1/2 year prison terms upon conviction. Michael Pratt, 33, Sowande Omokunde, 26, Lewis G. Caldwell, 29, and Lavelle Mohammad, 36, have all pleaded no contest to misdemeanor counts of criminal damage to property. Omokunde is Moore's son. Prosecutors...

    Everyone is asking the burning question: Why did The New York Times postpone its treason in publishing its NSA secrets when these leaks could have won the elections for their bosses, the Democrat Party?We certainly know it had nothing to do with any concerns about hurting our national security in the middle of a shooting war.Even The Times' own PR man felt obliged to (very publicly) upbraid his masters for this tragically missed opportunity, which we present courtesy of the New York Post [excerpted]: "Old Gay Gray Lady" publisher, Arthur "Pinch" Sulzberger Jr.Times' Own Ombudsman Rips 'Stonewalling' Paper By ANDY...

    Lakeville, Mass. -- They may be separated by no more than a liquor store counter, a yard fence or a narrow road strewn with the withered oak leaves of autumn. The constant images of George W. Bush and John Kerry on their television screens have been replaced by scenes of fighting in Fallujah and the death of Yasser Arafat. But the rifts in this small Massachusetts town, almost two weeks after the presidential election, remain so deep and so persistent that friends and neighbors wonder whether they can ever be repaired. "We have to unite, or else we're going to...
