    Two-thirds of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents said they want their member of Congress to “keep their promises and stick to principles” as opposed to “compromise in a bipartisan way to get things done.” “From Obamacare on down, sticking to principle is where the Republican base is today,” said David Kirby, vice president of opinion research at FreedomWorks. “It’s an example of how off the Republican establishment is from their base.” Social issues have become less salient to GOP voters: 41 percent said gay marriage is not one of their top 10 issues. Asked about abortion, about one-third said it is...

This term “two-state solution” falsely implies – even claims – that Israel is not yet a state, that it is not a sovereign, independent,...

    Lisa Myers of NBC News did a piece on the Today Show that actually questioned the worthiness of President Obama's and the Democrats' stimulous plan. The report questioned job creation and noted the various projects that won't do much to stimulate anything, including the Harry Reid boondoggle rail system from Disneyland to Las Vegas. Also mentioned were other projects targeted at districts represented by those who voted in favor of the plan. Maybe the media, like the public, is waking up to the fact that this package is nothing more than a huge taxpayer-burdening bunch of pork.
