  • The state of the union? It’s better!

    How one felt about the president’s State of the Union Address last week is no doubt colored by one’s political point of view. But Barack Obama does in fact have a good argument for why things are getting better in the USA.
        The country has come a good distance down the right road since the financial crisis of 2008.

  • Nothing new about this

  • Blood in the water

    Democrats can smell the blood in the water. And they’re going for the throat.
        Republicans may have no one to blame but themselves.
        It was just two years ago that Republicans chose not to share committee assignments with Democrats, using Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling’s vote as a tie-breaker to grab power in the state Senate.

    The Bedford Boys by Alex Kershaw

        I have always hated the south. From Maryland to Miami I have visited often, but always came back north with memories of some ugly experience down south.

  • A tale of two governors

    Bob McDonnell’s first year after leaving office as Virginia governor wasn’t supposed to be like this.
        Instead of basking in the glow of a successful term as a high-profile governor who was on Mitt Romney’s short list as VP, McDonnell faces a federal trial instead.
        In New Jersey, this was supposed to be a positive year of transition for Chris Christie, parlaying an easy re-election as governor into a roll out in 2015 as a GOP presidential candidate.
