Weekly Wrap-Up

Who made news this week?

First off, the voters of New York – as well as the Conservative Party.

Robert Castelli and Michael Montesano – two Republicans running on the Conservative Party line –
won remarkable victories in Tuesday’s special elections for the Assembly. Conservative Dean Murray holds a slim lead in Suffolk County, but we’re still waiting for official results.

David Paterson is in the news again, continuing to serve more as a punch line than governor. His “I’ll leave in a box” comment has generated plenty of nationwide coverage. Gov. Paterson’s prospects as the Democrats’ nominee aren’t looking any brighter after this week’s GOP/Conservative Party wins.

CNBC personality and economics powerhouse
Larry Kudlow is in the news, making people wonder if Chuck Schumer will cruise to reelection. Things could get interesting, that’s for sure. I’ve met with Mr. Kudlow. I can tell you without a doubt that he would make a great candidate.

The Obama Administration is in the news. John Brennan - President Obama's special assistant for counter-terrorism - is facing calls to resign as questions continue over the White House's handling of the thwarted Christmas Day bombing... and after Brennan claimed that questions about the Obama Administration "only serve the goals of al-Qaeda." Has the time come for John Brennan to resign? Cast your vote in our weekly poll.

President Obama is in the news – this time at the center of another Conservative Party win. It looks like the Obama Administration has given up on
the ridiculous plan to bring terrorists to New York and put them on trial. We fought this plan from Day One, and it’s good to see that common sense is ready to prevail. We still have our eye on this story though, because as all of us know it’s hard to fully trust the Obama Administration on anything.

Case in point: New reports that President Obama is setting the stage to completely abandon his campaign promise to not raise taxes on people making less than $250,000.
The President now describes himself as “agnostic” on the issue. I’m praying that we get some more people in Washington who will stop the Obama tax-and-spend agenda.

If you’re forced to pay higher taxes, how will that money be spent?
Check Sen. Tom Coburn’s website each week for the awful truth. He keeps a constantly-updated report on the latest pork-spending outrages that you and I are being forced to bankroll.

Look at those figures, and
then consider this number, from a CBS News/New York Times poll: 70% of Americans are dissatisfied or angry with the way things work in Washington.

Will voters show their anger on Election Day? That’s a story we’ll be watching in the coming months.

In the meantime, have a great weekend!
