Charles Krauthammer is right.  It indeed is going to be a President Perry or a President Bachmann or a President Romney or a reelected Obama in January 2013.  Most of the television political gurus, including Krauthammer, think it is going to be either Rick Perry or Michele Bachmann fighting it out in "Round One" for the social conservative/Tea Party vote and the right to face Mitt Romney in "Round Two."   Wrong!

Unfortunately, Krauthammer from his East coast perch  --  like many of the East Coast establishment media elite  --  disparages the state of Texas (which represents fly-over country,) as...

You would have a hard time coming by this information if you were waiting for the mainstream media to let you in on it, but according to the latest Gallup poll, Barack Obama's public approval rating has dropped to it's lowest point in his presidency, with just 39% of Americans approval of his job performance.

Even Gallup has soft-pedaled the poll results, by only posting a graph on their website, and not adding the usual article, headline, or pointing out the "news" that their poll made.

For that, we have to go to the LA Times:

The concerted attack on the Tea Party during the past couple of weeks  --  by not only the Democrat leaders, but by their like-minded friends in the news media  --  is astounding.  Prior to the debt ceiling legislation being signed into law by Barack Obama last week, the coordinated attack campaign against the Tea Party included using the talking points from the political hacks at the Democrats' national headquarters.  The main talking point was that the Tea Party activists were terrorists.  They whined that the Tea Party was also holding the country hostage, and on and on.

Just hours after the stock market closed on Wall Street this evening, the credit rating agency, Standard and Poor's, downgraded the credit rating for the United States of America from a top rating of AAA to AA+.  Thus, Barack Obama goes down as the first American president in history to have a debt downgrade during his administration.  Even the thoroughly-failed one-term president, Jimmy Carter, did not have a credit rating agency down-grade during his disastrous four years.

Obama spoke at a Manhattan fundraiser on Thursday and, although he did not specifically state that he supports gay marriage, told gay rights advocates that, "I believe that gay couples deserve the same legal rights as every other couple in this country."  This took place against the backdrop of the current debate in the NY State Senate over whether or not to vote on a bill to legalize gay marriage in that state.

Of course his statement is a complete non sequitur, in that we all have the same "rights".  And when it comes to marriage, every man has a right to marry a woman, and every woman a right to marry a man...or not.  What this is really all about is the "de"...

The Chairman of the Democrat Party, Debbie Wasserman Schulcz, recently admitted that her party  --  and that includes Barack Obama  --  now owns the economy.  If the economy shoots up during Election Year 2012, her party will gain.  If the economy remains the same, Obama will be swept from office along with Democrat-majority control of the Senate.
 
Today, the only Republican members on the six-man debt ceiling commission headed by the vice president  --  House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Senate Republican Whip Jon Kyl  --  quit the talks.  They both maintain that as long as tax increases, proposed by the Democrats, are on the table, the talks will go nowhere.  The Speaker of the House of Representatives,...

New Hampshire became the 37th state to enact a parental notification law with regard to abortion on Wednesday when the Republican majority overrode the veto of Democrat Governor John Lynch.  The vote in the House of 266 to 102, and 17 to 7 in the Senate.

The legislation requires health care providers to 48 hours advance notice to parents of girls under 18 either in person or by certified mail.  Failure to do so would leave them subject to a misdemeanor charge.  The exceptions to the law include if a determination that the girls life is at risk, or if a delay would cause a "serious risk of substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily organ."

Is everyone in your church registered to vote?  Odds are, the answer is "no".

We would like to invite you to join us in doing one of the most important things that we can do as Christian Americans – register other Christians to vote.

Statistics have shown that only about half of all self-identified Christians are actually registered, which means that they will have no voice in our government.  Simply put, if we are going to be able to have an impact on the issues we care about, this must change!

That’s what our Citizenship Sunday program is all about.

In honor of Independence Day we are Christians to participate...
