Weekly Wrap-Up

This week all eyes are on England and the Royal Wedding...

... which gives us an interesting opportunity to think about why marriage matters.

Here in New York I joined Inside City Hall this week to talk about the importance of protecting traditional marriage.

This week Shaun Marie has blogged about Big Labor’s newest attack on freedom – this time against Boeing and its right to choose where to locate factories. South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley writes a powerful op-ed for The Wall Street Journal and calls out President Obama on his (big surprise here) lack of leadership in standing up for American businesses.

As Gov. Haley notes, “The nation deserves an explanation as to why the president's appointees are doing the machinist union’s dirty work on the backs of the businesses and workers...”

What do you think? Do you support the unions’ efforts to force Boeing to locate this factory in a heavily unionized state? Or do you agree with the “right to work” concept that the unions hate? Give your view in our new Weekly Poll.

Honestly, can we trust the Obama Administration to make any decision about anything these days? As The Washington Times points out, “Obamanomics has failed.”

Looks like the Senate will vote on the Obama budget (since Chuck Schumer and the Democrats haven’t bothered to pass a budget of their own) as well as the Ryan plan to end Obamanomics and get our economy going.

The Weekly Standard takes a look at the GOP field and finds reasons for the Democrats to worry (which some background on why early polls are mostly best ignored, and how there’s no such thing as a “perfect” candidate).

Personally I would be worried if Republicans had immediately settled on one candidate this early in the game. Giving plenty of thought to the question of who might lead our nation is the right thing to do.

Have a great weekend!
