As Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich continue to throw millions of dollars and hundreds of sarcastic barbs at each other, their constant attempts to prove they are the best at gotcha politics is wearing thin. Of course every primary process includes some of what is politely called "contrasting" (in reality it is highlighting the negative aspects of an opponents record), but getting lost in all the mud slinging and chest thumping is the most important issue in the country today.

Ever hear the old proverb, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime?" It is wise in its simplicity and valuable in its accuracy. It's also a very apt analogy for the difference between President Barack Obama's approach to the current unemployment crisis and that of House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).

President Barack Obama made a speech today that was a preview of a speech he'll make on Thursday that, from all indications, will be a repeat of the same speech he's made many times before. Everyone who has paid even the slightest bit of attention has already heard his message for more government spending, more government borrowing and more government regulations. Obviously he is the one not getting the message that more speeches calling for more government is not what's needed and Thursday night may provide the next best opportunity to send it.

Today President Barack Obama nixed his administration's plan to implement an environmental regulation that could have cost as much as $90 billion. Just days ago Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) sent a letter to the White House asking that the administration calculate and release the economic impact of all 219 of its planned new regulations. Coincidence or proof that after two and a half years, the president's unaffordable, unsustainable and ridiculously naive plans for government are going up in smoke and the grown-ups are calling the shots?

New York Assemblyman David Weprin, the Democrat running to replace disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-New York), decided not to attend a scheduled debate Monday night against Republican Bob Turner. The Weprin campaign cited a series of reasons over the hours between the candidate's decision to back out and when the debate was supposed to take place, but Team Turner may have hit it on the nose when they accused Mr. Weprin of hiding after showing a frightening lack of knowledge about one of the most important issues facing the nation.
