Opinion: In A Cautious Debate Obama Gets The Points He Needed

Like Reagan’s cautious approach to the debates in 1984, Obama knows he is the president. Obama was the cautious champ, picking his moments and more concerned with overplaying his hand than winning every point in the first meeting.

Opinion: Unlike Obama, Romney Has A Plan To Save Social Security

Opinion: Romney’s 47% Don’t Pay Taxes Remark Shows He’s Exactly Who We Thought He Was

The recently released tape of Romney speaking to donors at a closed door fundraiser has exposed Mitt Romney to, in fact, be the person Democrats have portrayed him to be: a rich, out of touch, arrogant man that has no respect or connection to the American middle class and absolutely no interest in making the American middle class stronger.
