Ye Olde Predictions Piece: Circa 2014

The dawn of the new year signals civilization's return to several grand traditions, including the ancient hoary one requiring we professional columnists to trot out the tried but true "Ye Olde Predictions Piece." Either that or the even triter but true "Ye Olde Resolutions Piece." But we wandered down that trail last year. And most likely will again in 2015.

Double standard for Robertson and Kluwe?

A reality TV star speaks out about gays and loses his job, albeit temporarily. Meanwhile, a professional football player speaks out about gays and loses his job, apparently permanently. Some conservatives argue that tolerance means what's good for Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson is good for ex-Viking punter Chris Kluwe, even though the former denigrated homosexuals and the latter advocated for their equality. But to equate the cases of Robertson and Kluwe equates tolerance for an unthinking acceptance of prejudice.

Make Obamacare Voluntary

Just before Christmas, the Obama administration issued a blanket waiver for millions of Americans from the individual mandate requiring purchase of government-approved health insurance. The waiver, whose announcement was choreographed to give political credit to Democratic Senator Mark Warner of Virginia, was limited to individuals and families whose health plans were canceled by Obamacare. As Washington Post liberal blogger Ezra Klein put it: "Obamacare itself is the hardship" that qualifies cancelees for a hardship exemption.

Can Obama Recover?

Despite what some called "Obama's worst year ever" and what everyone agreed was terrible, horrible, no good, very bad Obamacare rollout, Barack Obama's job approval rating has bounced back out of the 30s and into the mid-40s-not great, but neither the inexorable slide into oblivion that many predicted. Once again, the reports of Obama's political death have been greatly exaggerated, begging the question as to why pundits seem so eager to pronounce his last rites.
