What War on Women? Who Said Anything About a War on Women?

Sometimes I get the impression this administration could lose on overreach alone. Forcing Americans to violate their consciences. Attacking Ann Romney (was it the victory over MS or cancer that irked you the most?).

I suppose the best thing allies of the White House have going for them is to convince everyone not to look at the president’s record. He is your hope and change. Let us ignore substance again! Records be darned. And then he will tell us what he really has planned for the second term, at the same time he tells Vladmir Putin?

The Left seems to have a particularly hard time deciding these days. Take, for example, the high-school students from Parkland, ... Read More
