Noonan on the DC/America Divide

January 31, 2014

So, how long did it take you to change the channel during Tuesday night’s State of the Union address?  After Obama channeled his inner Paul Harvey with folksy tales of “real” Americans, he started his regular banter not caring about the accuracy of his statements because (let’s face it) most of those watching weren’t going [...]

On the Eve of 2013, Two Contrasting Views of America

December 31, 2012

While going through my routine Internet rounds this morning I needed only go to Hot Air to find two articles which so perfectly contrast the main philosophical struggle in America today. Here’s a New York Times editorial simply titled “Let’s Give Up on the Constitution.”  It is modern progressivism in its essence. This article contains [...]

All of that started to change after the 2004 [...]

October 17, 2008

During this particular campaign, there has been a steady rise of Conservative elitism and defection to support a candidate who is the antithesis of what Conservatism is supposed to stand for.  While there is much good debate within the Conservative movement, the trend lately is to thumb down noses at those who do not agree [...]

Eloquence Defined

February 24, 2008

Peggy Noonan, unquestionably a brilliant wordsmith and speechwriter, has been off her game ever since President Bush’s second inaugural. In the past few months however, Noonan has noticed circumstances that should be obvious but are somehow overlooked. Her latest column on Barack Obama is an excellent example. Obama’s claim to fame since 2004 has been [...]

Debating the demise of the Republican Party

January 25, 2008

There has been much talk of the demise of the GOP in recent weeks.  Rush Limbaugh has been making the case that if Huckabee or McCain are nominated, it will destroy the GOP.  In an article today, Peggy Noonan states that the GOP is already in shambles, and it is because of George W. Bush.  [...]
