Weekly Wrap-Up

Barack Obama now claims that his biggest first-term mistake was failing to “tell a story to the American people” about how wonderful he is.
What would the name of that story be? I have a few ideas – you can vote on the one you like best in our new Weekly Poll.
Hats off to Mitt Romney this week for taking the conservative message directly to an unsurprisingly hostile audience at theNAACP convention.
Mitt showed up, but where was Obama?
Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats sense a conspiracy theory – that Mitt Romney spoke at the NAACP event for the sole purpose of getting booed in a covert effort to appeal to white racists. It must take a lot of work to come up with ideas this dumb.
Democrats are particularly outraged that Romney sticks to his principles, even in the face of fierce opposition. One activist complained that Romney “had accomplished a ‘calculated political ploy’ by signaling to conservatives that he's willing to tell backers of the health law that he wants to cut it.”

The Democrats, it seems, prefer the “Panderer-in-Chief.”
Even as Romney makes some bold moves on the campaign trail, some feel he’s not being aggressive enough in his bid for the White House. John Podhoretz explains why sometimes in a tough election, less is more.
Adding Dr. Condoleezza Rice to the GOP ticket – the latest rumor in Washington – could be a bold move by the Romney campaign, according toPeggy Noonan.  

Here’s a critique that goes beyond all the talk about “outsourcing” and explains how Obama’s policies today are hurting U.S.businesses and the economy.
Kirsten Gillibrand, the Senator representing Vogue magazine, likes to put on a good show of outrage over outsourcing – but Wendy Long is calling her bluff and pointing out that’s Gillibrand’s liberal policies are what’s forcing businesses overseas in the first place.
Have a great weekend!
