It’s all out in the open

By Cal Thomas

THERE’S ANOTHER video, this one of Mitt Romney speaking to donors at a fundraiser in Boca Raton.

The video was reportedly “leaked” by James Carter IV, the grandson of former President Jimmy Carter. How appropriate. It apparently was saved for the most politically opportune moment and then published by the liberal Mother Jones Magazine in hopes of causing maximum damage to the Romney campaign. It’s all part of the Democrats’ attempt to distract attention from the president’s failed record.

More coverage is networks’ duty

By Cal  Thomas

MY FIRST POLITICAL convention was in 1964 when Democrats convened in Atlantic City to nominate Lyndon Johnson for a full term as president. I was a young copyboy at the NBC News network bureau in Washington. We arrived from Washington aboard a chartered DC-3 plane that also carried the late anchor/reporter Frank McGee and his wife.

The debate about debates
By Cal Thomas

DICTIONARY.COM defines a “debate” as: “A formal contest in which the affirmative and negative sides of a proposition are advocated by opposing speakers.”
That is not what will take place during three exchanges between President Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, or the one vice-presidential exchange between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan.

Romney-Ryan: Real change

By Cal Thomas

LAST THURSDAY’S Wall Street Journal editorial “Why Not Paul Ryan?” made the case for his selection as the Republican vice-presidential nominee in this statement: “Romney can win a big election over big issues. He’ll lose a small one.”

Eat more chicken
By Cal Thomas

CHICK-FIL-A President Dan Cathy is in hot water with the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community because he committed the cardinal sin in an age of political correctness: Thou must not speak ill of anything gays, lesbians, bisexuals or transgenders wish to do.
In an interview with the Baptist Press and later on a Christian radio program, Cathy, whose father, the philanthropist Truett Cathy, founded the company, defended marriage between a man and a woman and when asked about the company’s support of traditional marriage said, “Guilty as charged. We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit.” Cathy believes American society is rotting (and where is evidence to the contrary?) because the country has turned away from God.

Stossel’s solution
By Cal Thomas

IN ORDER TO get the correct answer to anything, one must ask the right question. That is what former “ABC News” and current “Fox News” TV host John Stossel does on his weekly program. If ever there was “must-see TV,” this is it.

Stossel’s show on Saturday, June 30, was a classic. It was called “Government, Incorporated” and focused on what private industry can do less expensively and more efficiently than government. After watching it, I wondered why this isn’t happening. Why does inefficient, costly and unresponsive government continue to grow while the people and companies that could do the work much better are regulated and taxed to death?

Many reacting to ‘Obamacare’
By Cal Thomas

REGARDLESS OF HOW the Supreme Court rules on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (this was written before the decision), the Obama administration has indicated it will move forward with those parts of the unpopular law it can impose on the country.

Hard to label real extremists
By Cal Thomas

DON’T YOU FIND it odd that the word extremism seems to apply only to conservative Republicans? Terminology often drives political discourse and those who control the terms often determine the outcome.
Establishment Republicans have too often been uncomfortable in their own skin. When they win elections, they sometimes seem unsure of what to do next. Democrats never seem to have this problem. They operate according to their core convictions and are never considered extreme. Instead, they are moderate, even normal. When Republicans

Egg on Face(book)
By Cal Thomas

THERE WILL BE investigations and already there are lawsuits over the rollout of Facebook’s overhyped initial public offering (IPO) last week, but no investigation is necessary into the reason for the outrage over the stock’s rapid fall. It’s called human nature.
It is the same characteristic that causes people to believe against staggering odds that they can win the lottery, or score big in Atlantic City or discover a foolproof system for playing the stock market. It is the familiar?get-rich-quick notion that somehow one can bypass hard work, sound financial planning and win The Big One, retiring to a life of ease.

Warming up to Romney

By Cal Thomas

IT WASN’T EXACTLY the belly of the beast Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney visited recently on a picture-perfect commencement day at “the world’s largest Christian University,” but his appearance was a test as to whether the conservative school, founded by the late Jerry Falwell, would embrace a devout Mormon. And Romney passed.
The more than 30,000 assembled in Liberty University’s stadium to hear his commencement address not only applauded him when he proclaimed that marriage was a relationship between one man and one woman but
