GEORGE WILL: A cliff of Democrats’ choosing – WaPo

By George F. Will, Wednesday, November 28, 2012 With a chip on his shoulder larger than his margin of victory, Barack Obama is approaching his second term by replicating the mistake of his first. Then his overreaching involved health care — expanding the entitlement state at the expense of economic growth. Now he seeks another surge of statism, enlarging the portion ... Go To Article

CADDELL: We Can Do Better: An America That Can Imagine Itself

by PATRICK CADDELL 28 Nov 2012 -- America is in deep trouble. Everyone realizes it, even people who just voted for “four more years” in the recent election. A Rasmussen poll from August found that just 14 percent of Americans think that America’s children will be better off than their parents. And another survey found that 63 percent of recent college ... Go To Article

GREENFIELD: With Democracy For All and Freedom for None

November 28, 2012,  By Daniel Greenfield -- It would be tempting to attribute the disaster spreading across the Middle East to a brief flirtation with democracy snake oil, but for the better part of the last century the political class of the United States could talk of nothing else. Nearly every war was fought to spread democracy, protect democracy or worship at the ... Go To Article

ELECTION 2012: What does it all mean? | WashEx

November 27, 2012, Noemie Emery -- Every two to four years since 1992, we have found ourselves with a new realigning election -- one that shifts things "forever" in one party's favor, only to come apart shortly thereafter in a re-realignment or a draw. Ideologies show no patterns of permanent dominance. There seems one signal of reliability: In each election of the ... Go To Article

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

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON: Winning the Latino Vote – NRO

By Victor Davis Hanson, NOVEMBER 27, 2012 If the Democrats have the winning formula, why not copy them? Over the last three weeks, I think I have read most of the post-election op-eds written on the Latino vote. I have studied exit polling, read sophisticated demographic analyses, and talked to as many Latinos in my hometown as I could. The result is that I would ... Go To Article

BYRON YORK: After victory, liberals want income redistribution | WashEx

By Byron York, November 26, 2012 -- During the campaign it was commonplace to note that President Obama didn't have much of a second-term agenda. 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

OBAMACARE Faces the Implementation Iceberg | RealClearPolitics

By Paul Howard and Stephen Parente - November 26, 2012 Defenders of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, can be forgiven for some post-election triumphalism. But their joy is likely to be short lived. Because the law put off implementation of most key provisions until after the 2012 election, voters cast their ballots on November 6 without ...

BARONE: States choose own paths with one-party governments | WashTimes

BY Michael Barone, November 24, 2012 -- In Washington, Americans have two-party government, with a Democratic president and Senate and a Republican House. We had it before November's election and will have it again for the next two years. Looking back from 2014, we will have had two-party government for most of the preceding two decades, for six years of Bill ... Go To Article

JAY COST: After the Tumult and the Shouting | WeeklyStandard

DEC 3, 2012, VOL. 18, NO. 12 • BY JAY COST -- If I had to choose one word to describe the 2012 presidential election, it would be decline. The results showed a decline in overall turnout, a decline in the GOP coalition relative to its 2004 high, a decline in the Democratic coalition relative to its 2008 high, and in general a stark decline in public confidence that ...
