The McClatchy-Marist Poll, which was released last Monday, revealed that those calling themselves Tea Partiers have little interest in doing anything substantial about slashing government spending. This cuts the legs out from under any attempt by conservatives in Washington to rein in that spending and it also gives President Obama a huge edge going into the 2012 elections.  

Recently released classified military documents regarding the treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay have once again forced the Obama administration to defend the continued presence of the military detainment camp in Cuba, where 172 men remain.

Now that he is considering running for President at a time when the federal government�s financial condition is precarious indeed, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum says that his 2003 vote in favor of Medicare prescription drug coverage �was a mistake.� Yet the reasoning behind his admission reveals his lack of commitment to both conservative principles and the Constitution.

Lovers of liberty hoping that another Dr. Paul would go to Washington next January are probably going to have to wait for another election year. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Dr. Robert Paul, the youngest son of Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) and the brother of Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), “told students at the University of North Texas that he has all but ruled out a bid for political office.” But, the paper adds, that is only “for now.”

The issue of death panels will not go away. In a story published recently by The New American, it was revealed that in his budget proposal, President Obama all but explicitly endorsed the concept as part of his plan to cut federal spending.
