VICTOR DAVIS HANSON:: Learning from the Election

by Victor Davis Hanson -- 1. Populism The Republicans have only won the popular vote since Ronald Reagan’s presidency on two occasions: 1988 and 2004. In both instances, even the patrician Bushes were able to paint their liberal opponents as out-of-touch Massachusetts magnificoes. Lee Atwater turned Michael Dukakis, the helmeted tank driver, into a bumbling ... Go To Article

JONAH GOLDBERG: The rise of Mohamed Morsi the ‘moderate’ – latimes

By Jonah Goldberg, November 27, 2012 What do you call a leader of a theocratic and cultish movement with a deep and clear disdain for democracy who suddenly assumes dictatorial powers?

Beyond his desire to raise taxes on higher earners, most of the president's platform amounted to a promise to "not go back" -- that is, to protect the accomplishments of his first term. But Obama's liberal supporters do ... Go To Article
