The President's blue-ribbon commission on fiscal responsibility and reform

Well, the President finally appointed at least the beginning of his blue-ribbon commission on fiscal responsibility and reform, naming Alan Simpson and former chief-of-staff Erskine Bowles from the Clinton days to co-chair it. It's worth holding out hope for this, because Simpson's a good man—always been a renegade on the Republican side—and Bowles was experienced in Washington.

The President needs to get serious about jobs

The one thing that's for certain is we can not afford a repeat of the health care fiasco when it comes to jobs. That's where the President needs to get serious.

Iran might be developing a nuclear weapon

A most amusing event recently, the UN announced that now they have some evidence that Iran might be trying to develop a nuclear weapon. And this was considered to be pretty big news. Of course, we on the Right have been talking about this since about 2002.

Obama missed the boat

I want to build on this limited government thing. I think this is where Obama has missed the boat. He can still recover. He has unfortunately taken on the mantel of big government because he backed Wall Street. He has to reverse course. He has to take the populist theme away from these hypocritical Tea Party people and make it his own.

3/4 of Americans support openly gays in the military

I'd like to end a positive note and affirm the wisdom of the American people. The latest ABC/Washington Post poll shows that 3/4 of Americans support openly gays in the military across all party lines. This is unprecedented—82% Democrats, 77% Independents and even 64% Republicans support gays in the military. That is a high mark on tolerance and compassion.

Obama meets with the Dalai Lama

Again, compliments to the President. He is going to meet with the Dalai Lama next week despite the threats from China. This is a good sign. You don't deal with China from weakness. You have to show strength.
