FRED BARNES: Despair and Change | WeeklyStandard

By Fred Barnes, Sept. 17, 2012 President Obama has had four years to fix the economy, and it’s not his fault he’s failed so far. He’s tried very hard, and he’s made some headway. But the task is so great that no one, not even FDR or Bill Clinton, could have done any better than he has. Thus, on effort and good intentions alone, Obama has earned four more ... Go To Article

KUDLOW: ‘Government’ Becomes ‘Citizenship’ In Obama’s New Language of Politics – NewYorkSun

By LAWRENCE KUDLOW, Special to the Sun | September 7, 2012 Perhaps the reason for President Obama’s flat and energy-less speech Thursday night -- TV cameras panning the convention floor actually showed delegates falling asleep -- was that he already knew Friday’s jobs numbers were going to be a disaster.
