There’s No False Choice on Iran
The consequence of a weak president.
Fred Barnes, The Weekly Standard

But confronted by a popular revolt in Iran, Obama has succumbed to a false choice. Either support the democratic forces in Iran aligned against the rigged presidential election or preserve his chance to negotiate with the Ahmadinejad regime for a nuclear arms deal–one or the other. The president thinks he’s stuck with a dilemma. He’s not. The two options aren’t mutually exclusive. The choice is indeed false.

The Obamacare Story You Won’t Hear
Michelle Malkin

The White House, Democrats, and MoveOn liberals are spreading health care sob stories to sell a government takeover. But there’s one health care policy nightmare you won’t hear the Obamas hyping.

An Imperfect Senator’s Road to Redemption
Kathryn Lopez, TownHall

Honoring Fatherhood
Rebecca Hagelin,

Loving fathers are critical to the development of children. And the truth is that every woman is a better person when she has a good man to rely on. Dads are not an “optional” family accessory to be tossed in the corner like dirty socks or trampled on like a door mat. We should reject the attitudes of both women who treat them that way and of any man who has bought the lie and started assuming the loser role. And we need to let our boys know that one of the greatest contributions they can make as adults is to be strong fathers who are committed to their families.

Now here’s a party I just might be able to join:

gooohGOOOH – Get Out of Our House
GOOOH stands for ‘Get Out of Our House’ and is pronounced like the word ‘go’. It is a NON-PARTISAN plan to evict the 435 career politicians in the U.S. House of Representatives and replace them with everyday Americans just like you.
