Team Georgia had a great day on Saturday. After the stumbling entry into the race by Georgia’s Newt Gingrich last week, the momentum behind former CEO and talk show host Herman Cain began to grow. By the time he announced on Saturday in front of a crowd of more than 10,000 people in Centennial Olympic Park, he had started getting “some respect.”

As former speaker of the House Tip O’Neill said, “All politics is local.” In Georgia this weekend, national politics became local when two Georgians -- former speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and businessman and Tea Party favorite Herman Cain -- came to the Georgia GOP convention to ask for the attendees’ support.
In the ’90s, way back in the 20th century, guys like Ralph Reed brought the Republican Party into the cutting edge of the age of technology. It seems so long ago, before the technology bubble burst, before the housing and credit markets burst and the private sector was larger than the public sector. It seems so long ago, but it was only a few years.
I’m married to a solo-practicing primary care physician. I know, a dying breed, but he likes being his own boss. Like most primary care physicians, most of his patients are on Medicare. We’ve had as many as three people working for us over the years and now we have one full-time and one part-time person working for us. In February, we moved to a smaller office to prepare for what might be coming. We figured, anywhere we could save money, would help us weather whatever was coming with Obamacare. We moved from Suite 230 to Suite 170 of the same building. You would think that would be a simple and straightforward move for Medicare. It wasn’t.
Tiger seemed as if he was back in his element this week at The Masters golf tournament in Augusta, Ga. He began the week with a sort of “bedeviled” look with a goatee on Monday for his press conference. There were more apologies and he said the most difficult part of the last few months was facing what he had done and the hounding of his family by the media. He still seemed unable to accept it was his own actions that lead to his family being pursued by the media.

A few years ago, there would never have been a question about the Focus on the Family Super Bowl ad featuring Tim Tebow and his mom, Pam. It’s a heartwarming story about a family who had to make a choice. Pam Tebow was doing missionary work in the Philippines, got sick and was advised by her doctor that she might want to abort her baby. They didn’t know if the illness would affect the baby, and with four other children and a husband depending on her, the option was put out there. Pam Tebow chose to have her baby and that baby turned out to be star quarterback for the University of Florida, Tim Tebow. As a dyed-in-the-wool University of Georgia Bulldog, I hate giving anything to the Florida Gators, but this is a great story.
"Are you willing, under those circumstances, to say I'm gonna be the person, I'm gonna sit in Teddy Kennedy's seat, and I'm gonna be the person that's gonna block it for another 15 years," David Gergen asks Scott Brown.
During the continuing debate over the thwarted suicide bomber who tried to take down an airliner on Christmas Day, every option except the right one is being considered. Somehow, we are supposed to feel better since Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano says she’s going to have 300 full body scanners in airports by the end of the year. Women are overwhelmingly opposed to this, wonder why?
