    There are lots of deficits in the United States right now, but one thing that's not in short supply is anti-European sentiment. This is especially true among those vying to run against President Obama. Criticizing the president, Mitt Romney said: "He...
  • Mark Russell

    President Obama went to a little town in Kansas and held a political event, which we'll call "Occupy Osawatomie." Why Osawatomie? Theodore Roosevelt delivered a speech there in 1910 and President Obama likes to identify with Teddy when he is not...
  • Obama reelection the result of increasingly diverse electorate
