WHY REPUBLICANS ARE LOSING THE WAR

THE ROMNEY VEEPSTAKES

All Matt Drudge had to do was put Condoleezza Rice’s picture on the Drudge Report with a story containing rumors that she was leading Gov. Romney’s list of possible vice-presidential candidates, and the media went wild. That’s not surprising as Condi Rice would be an out-of-the-box choice; and people are looking for any indication that one candidate or the other is about to break out of what has been, for some time now, a dead heat. Have no fear, the Romney veepstakes isn’t over; and Condi isn’t likely to be Romney’s running mate.  (Read the full column at EWRoss.com)

CONSERVATIVES VS. PROGRESSIVES 2012

As conservatives prepare to do battle with President Barack Obama and progressives in the 2012 election campaign, do conservatives really know what they are up against, or are they setting themselves up for another defeat?

Judging from the way the battle is shaping up so far, despite the lessons learned from Barack Obama’s defeat of John McCain in the 2008 election and three years of the progressive army at work, you have to question if the Republican candidates for president and the conservative cognoscenti yet really know their “enemy.”  (Read the full column at EWRoss.com)

Political junkies on the left and the right require their daily fix. No sooner do they awake each morning than they turn on their computers, iPads, and smartphones and inject their favorite political narcotic directly into their brain through their eyeballs. When their brains have absorbed all they can tolerate, they go about their daily routines, returning to their source throughout the day and evening for just enough dope to maintain their high.

General Stanley McChrystal’s resignation following his strategic blunder—granting an interview to Rolling Stone magazine—comes two weeks after the war in Afghanistan became America’s longest war, exceeding the 104 months of the Vietnam War.
