Congratulations to President Barack Obama, newly elected senators and the Republican majority in the House of Representatives. Conservatives should not be sore losers. Congratulate the victors and move on to the next battle.

Thankfully, this election is almost over. But don’t get too comfortable. Important decisions on the future of America will happen right after Nov. 6.
The clock is winding down on this presidential race, which can’t end soon enough. Americans already feel burned out by the extended nominating and general-election process. It feels like we are in the last minute of an extended football game. One more debate and a few more weeks to go, then the final buzzer will sound --- finally.
Yes, America, we have officially entered the silly season of politics when Big Bird becomes a national issue.
Most pundits (and, indeed, most polls) declared Mitt Romney the winner — in terms of both substance and demeanor — of the Denver debate. This is interesting news for taxpayers.
Presidential debates seldom turn an election, yet this year may be different. The race between Republican Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama is close by any measure. Neither side’s voting bloc seems solidified .We may see some swings in the numbers running up to Election Day if either of these candidates has a “Joe Biden moment.”
Only 53 percent pay federal income taxes
Mitt Romney's finest moment
With the political conventions distracting the American people from the spending in Washington, D.C., one thing is for sure: Washington is bracing for a hurricane of spending in September and after the elections.
Are we better off under Obamanomics? Hardly, a new report from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reveals. According to the CBO, the federal government will spend $1 trillion more than it takes in this year --- the fourth consecutive year that has happened. Furthermore, CBO projects negative growth and dismal unemployment numbers.
Vice President Joe Biden’s antics are getting old. His offensive and silly comments were amusing at first, but I don’t think many Americans feel comfortable with Biden being a heartbeat away from the presidency. I met Biden when he was a senator, and I like him personally, but he’s proving to the American people that he is unfit to continue in office.
Congress is scheduled to start a month-long break next week. The purpose of this recess, lawmakers claim, is to spend more time in their districts meeting constituents. Conservatives hope they come back with an appetite to attack the nation’s $16 trillion debt and resist the temptation to raise taxes.
President Barack Obama may have abandoned any pretense of President Bill Clinton’s effective triangulation of politics, but he has embraced Clinton’s parsing of words. Remember Clinton’s statement at a deposition during the Monica Lewinsky scandal before a grand jury that “it depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is”? Obama is now using Clinton-speak to run away from his own words.
It’s not unusual to hear conservative talking heads accuse President Obama of being a socialist. So why is he making it easier for them? Last week, in Roanoke, Va., he said the following:
The secret plan by Republican and Democratic senators to raise your taxes during the lame-duck session continues apace. More evidence emerged this week.
The Constitution took a beating at the U.S. Supreme Court this week. There are three lessons conservatives should take from the Obamacare decision.
President Obama promised “an unprecedented level of openness in government.” Instead, he has revealed an apparent contempt for transparency.
Some have accused President Obama of being the “food stamp president” because of how much the food stamp program has expanded under his leadership. But he’s not alone. The Senate this week is earning the title the “food stamp Senate” for doing nothing to stop the costs of the program from exploding.
Republicans are secretly negotiating with Democrats to raise your taxes after the election.
