At a rally for Senatorial candidate Chris Coons, President Obama declared that making Joe Biden his vice president was “the single best decision I have made.” If he believes that, God help us.
Congressman Mike Pence, replying to the President’s Saturday radio address: “If Congress fails to act, every American will see a tax increase in less than 100 days. 88 million taxpayers in the lowest bracket will face a minimum tax increase of $503.00.

Comedian (?) Will Ferrell has a GOP genius in his scope. Ferrell, along with his liberal Hollywood friends, plans to make a movie about political strategist Lee Atwater. The result will not be pretty for Republicans. Atwater, who died of a brain tumor at age 40 and helped Bush 41 win against Democrat Mike Dukakis, gave Republicans many victories. However, director Jim McCabe calls him “without a moral center” and plans to paint him as a villain. Jim Carrey is being considered to play Atwater.
“Proud to Be Right: Voices of the Next Conservative Generation” uses stories, as Democrats (and Reagan) successfully employed to get their message out.

Sounds like an interesting read and Christmas gift.
