Obamacare Boomerangs on Democrats Up For Reelection

Not every bad thing that happens to us is bad, long term. I've learned it well; some of life's biggest blessings arrive unexpectedly, wrapped in the most unsightly dressings. It's as if the alchemy happens in the waiting. And so it may be for the GOP, as they now get to witness certain Democrats, who supported Obamacare, paying a hefty price for their misdeeds. (And who says there isn't a God?)

Take Aim at the Real Enemy

While we watch the S.S. Obamacare sink beneath the waves, and while we watch the White House explain why its signature legislative "achievement" is not the titanic disaster we all knew it would be, I have some advice for my fellow Republicans.

Students Aren’t Failing Tests, Tests Are Failing Students

Recently, Education Secretary Arne Duncan said you're either "moving forward with courageous reforms" and "piloting new and better assessments" (the graduate school term for "standardized tests"), or you're one of the "arm chair pundits who insist our efforts are doomed to fail." Duncan exposed his own fallacy when he said, "Many people in the real world, outside the beltway and blogosphere, have tuned out this debate." Actually, the opposite is true. In the birthplace of the legislative dumpster fire known as No Child Left Behind, most Texans are lining up against test-driven reforms.

A New Hope for School Accountability

Students are protesting standardized testing. Parents are refusing to let schools give their kids the tests. Teachers are refusing to administer the tests. School boards are begging for relief from testing mandates. That's all nice, say the dwindling number of defenders of linking accountability to standardized testing, but if we got rid of tests what would you replace them with?

RINOs and AINOs

Now we bore deep into the bunker that houses the triumphant Tea Party headquarters, where they are celebrating a tactical victory over the forces of complacency and complaining loudly about all the chicken-hearted Republicans In Name Only who bowed to the will of our socialist president, and voted to reopen the government and avoid a global financial meltdown.

The Tea Party is the Country’s ‘Phantom of the Opera’

Is politics imitating art? In "The Phantom of the Opera," opera singer Christine Daaé is kidnapped by the deformed, masked Eric. The most dramatic scene is when Christine rips off Eric's mask, revealing underneath the horrifying face of a rotting corpse. And so it is in 2013: independents, moderates, centrists, Democrats, moderate Republicans, traditional conservative Republicans, the Republican establishment have all now seen the underlying face of the Tea Party. And it isn't pretty.

Obama’s Uncivil America

The "new era of civility in politics" called for by President Obama after former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ) was shot, lasted about five Washington minutes. Since then Obama has adopted a scorched earth public policy in an attempt to destroy his political enemies, but sacrificing the Constitution as collateral damage.
