Expect the Unexpected: Why Liberals Suddenly Melted Down After the Debate

A Different Spin On Obama’s Denver Clock-Cleaning

by Smitty Daily Pundit links VDH in yet another rational review of What Went Wrong In Denver. Sure, as far as it goes. But if I may “. . .think of a man, and. . .take away reason and accountability“, maybe we need to recall that the Obama Administration is nothing if not the ultimate […]

Is America Ready For A President Who Can Humbly Say I Was ‘Completely Wrong’?
