Process wins out over substance: Sad story of a wasted ‘campaign’

Process wins out over substance: Sad story of a wasted ‘campaign’

Sol W. Sanders   For those of us who opposed the re-election of the President precisely for his announced effort “to transform” America into something tradition had never favored, there has been an even deeper and troubling election result. Most of the post-election blather has been just that. Exit-polling has always been extremely unreliable and […]

In a nation of children, ‘it’s practically impossible to beat Santa Claus’

Special to WorldTribune.com Rush Limbaugh, Nov. 7, 2012: Conservatism, in my humble opinion, did not lose last night. It’s just very difficult to beat Santa Claus. It is practically impossible to beat Santa Claus. … Romney’s recipe was the old standby: American route to success, hard work. That gets sneered at. I’m sorry. In a […]

The defeated candidate won! Of what value, the never-ending campaign?

Special to WorldTribune.com WASHINGTON — All that for nothing. It was the billion-dollar election that did not decide one single damned thing. Republicans control the House. Democrats control the Senate. And the White House remains in Democratic hands with absolutely no mandate whatsoever. Another four years with no hope of change. In this environment with […]

That other election: The metrosexual male vs the teetotaller square

Sol W. Sanders   There is another parallel shadowy election tomorrow – no candidates, no poll counting, and no definitive victory or defeat. It’s the little acknowledged cultural war playing out, a fierce contest hardly talked about publicly – at least not identifying it with each candidate. Using labels of another day, the presidential contestants […]

Performance review for employee Barack Obama: Time to dust off that resume, Mr. President

Performance review for employee Barack Obama: Time to dust off that resume, Mr. President

Lev Navrozov Last night, Oct. 28, as I was watching Fox News Sunday Full Coverage, an image of Obama delivering a message flashed on the screen for a mere second. The image was gone as soon as it came on, but it was enough for me to catch it: “I run not on what I […]

Hu Jintao seen prevailing in PLA power struggle with Xi Jinping and Jiang Zemin

Special to WorldTribune.com By Willy Lam, East-Asia-Intel.com President Hu Jintao has clawed back some territory with a reshuffle of the People’s Liberation Army’s top brass that largely tallies with the wishes of the 69-year-old supremo.
