    The Charmed Circle

    Candidates running for president in recent decades have sounded in their speeches more like they believe they are running for the position “God” rather than the position “President of the United States.” John Stossel pointed this out in his recent special on 20/20. Politicians claim that they can solve economic … More

    Tankosphere Today: Nov. 7, 2008

    Nothing Innovative in Federal Education – Cato-at-Liberty I’m getting to this paper — a proposal from moderate-liberal, Democratic insiders Andy Rotherham and Sara Mead — kind of late because I was working on other things when it came out, but something in it begs for commentary, especially since folks like … More

    America Serves

    President-elect Barack Obama has quietly changed the meaning of the American Dream and introduced a proposal for American Serfdom. In America, what it means to serve one’s country is very clear. It is voluntary and for the purpose of defending the country during a time of war, or for the … More

    Morning Bell: Obama's Nuclear Divide

    President-elect Barack Obama has a number of challenges to tackle when he takes office in January. One of his promises is to change the weather — by addressing global climate change. While only Congress (or the EPA) can implement an economy-wide cap-and-trade policy, Obama would surely sign the bill. In … More

    The Failure of the EU Savings Tax Directive – Adam Smith Institute In Challenges facing the EU Savings Tax – the first independent study of the EU Savings Tax Directive – Keith and his co-author, Graham Mather, reveal that the European Commission is in danger of scoring an own goal … More

    Progressive Corporatism Is Here

    There was no bigger media cheerleader for Barack Obama over the past year than MSDNC. Hardball host Chris Matthews famously admitted that Obama sent “a thrill going up my leg” and Keith Olbermann’s over the top boosterism was even recently parodied by Saturday Night Live. MSDNC could have tried to … More

    Ronald Reagan Did Not Lose Tuesday

    The Politico is famous for its fact free political analysis. Glenn Thrush continues this tradition today in an article purporting to identify the biggest losers from Tuesday’s election. Thrush writes: John McCain invoked the Great Communicator as his idol — and many in the GOP believe a return to Reagan-era … More

    Morning Bell: A Mandate for What?

    Yesterday the Center for American Progress boldly proclaimed that Barack Obama’s 6-point popular voter victory represented “A Progressive Mandate.” Really? How many millions of dollars did the Obama campaign spend on TV commercials in the closing weeks to convince Americans that Obama would enact policies the Center for American Progress … More
