I’ve read and heard a lot of claptrap since the election. Unfortunately, it emanates from both Democrats and Republicans. It’s frustrating. Pat Caddell calls Democrats the corrupt party and Republicans the stupid party. He certainly seems to have a handle on things.

An idea is powerful. It can change the world. A great leader may be able to alter the course of history, but without instilling new ideas, the world resumes its old course. When an idea or value is shared by the majority of a community, it becomes a cultural linchpin. That culture will not change until that idea is jerked out of the general consciousness and replace with a different idea.

We received a query from a reader asking about the electoral college and responded directly, but also thought this might be of some interest to other folk.

After the umpteenth time watching President Obama hoist his jobs plan booklet in the air, I decided to take a look at it. In summary, this so-called plan is an exercise in egotism, falsehoods, and lame excuses. The graphics are beautiful, but I found the adoring photos tiresome. Granted, some are still riding the euphoria of 2008, but most Americans—even those who still support him—have a more sober view of this president. The idolatry days are past.

Next Tuesday, We The People are back in charge. It’s game time. If we all play our positions, we can win … and then we need to keep the momentum by staying in the game until our constitutional government has been restored.

During the debate, I was really stunned only once. Obama was condescending, rude, and arrogant, but I had seen all that before. What surprised me was Obama’s statement that, “One thing I think Americans should be proud of, when Tunisians began to protest, this nation — me, my administration — stood with them earlier than just about any country.” It displayed an ego elevated to a dangerous level.

On Friday, October 19, 2012, the Wall Street Journal published a news article with the headline: “Early Uncertainty on Libya Account” by Adam Entous and Siobhan Gorman. The article was a convoluted account of United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice’s duplicity (lies) about the Benghazi attack. The Wall Street Journal article followed the latest White House narrative that laid blame on the intelligence community. I wrote the Journal the flowing letter.

Those who have questioned whether Barack Obama is a citizen of the United States have missed the larger question: Whether he considers himself a citizen of the world. On taking office, he ratcheted up funding for the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, and continues to defer foreign policy to the United Nations. The Apology Tour and his 2008 Berlin speech could certainly make a person wonder, but think about this remarkable statement by Obama during the 2008 campaign: “We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that every other country is going to say, ‘OK.’”

Someone who always needs to be in control hates uncontrollable situations. He can function admirably with a handpicked audience, a teleprompter, and a carefully crafted set, but seems lost with ad hoc questions and only a podium for a prop.

Romney should forget about the focus groups and talk to America as adults. Take a tip from Ronald Reagan in 1980 and tell American what it needs to hear.
