Weekly Wrap-Up

We’re posting this blog entry just as Sen. Chuck Schumer is launching a new effort to outlaw “false or misleading election material” that could stop people from voting.

Chuck and his cohorts promise that their bill is designed solely to prevent untrue statements about, for example, election dates or locations. But is it hard to imagine this bill being used to restrict ideas that Chuck & Co. find false or misleading? Link

Scary. Let’s hope this proposal remains just that.

So did you watch last night’s Iowa debate? If not – and even if you did, but want to see what people are saying - here is some post-debate analysis.

The Washington Times notes that Newt Gingrich “took fire from the other candidates,” while the New York Post also puts Newt at the center of attention during the debate.

John Podhoretz is not impressed with Newt’s performance.

The Weekly Standard calls this one “the nice debate.”

And Human Events sees no winners or losers in Iowa.

Meanwhile in the equally important state of South Carolina, Mitt Romney has picked up a key endorsement.

We’ve had several Weekly Polls that have asked about your choice for the GOP presidential nomination. Here’s a new take on the question for this week: Have you changed your choice of candidate since the beginning of the Republican campaign? Is your choice today different from your choice six months ago? Or have you stuck with your original decision? Vote today in our new Weekly Poll.

Now some reminders of why this matters – why we MUST get Obama out of the White House in 2012.

First, the Obama Administration’s addiction to appeasement – chronicled brilliantly (of course) by Charles Krauthammer.

And also, the Obama Administration’s out-of-control Justice Department led by Attorney General Eric Holder, whose dangerous (and deadly) Fast and Furious gunrunning fiasco is now being described as “Obama’s Watergate.”

Ho-hum... another day, another deal to avert a government shutdown.

And according to The Heritage Foundation, this new deal leaves much to be desired.

Have a great weekend!
