Campaign Lessons

What do you learn from this week’s political headlines?

  • Dick Lugar is totally out of touch with Indiana voters.
  • Barry Oh! favors homosexual marriage.
  • Mitt Romney may or may not have participated in high school activities as a high schooler.
  • Mitt Romney has a likeability problem.
  • The homosexual marriage issue may hurt Mitt Romney.
  • California’s budget deficit is about 170% of what it was projected at the start of this year.
  • European economies—with a couple exceptions—are in the septic tank.

What is ignored in this week’s political headlines?

  • The U.S. economy is on the same glide slope as California and Europe.
  • Increased homosexual marriage discussion means reduced Obamanomics discussion.
  • The labor force is as small as its been in 30 years.
  • The federal debt and deficit are not self-healing.
  • Obamacare will greatly add to the federal debt and deficit problems.
  • Joe Biden is the “thought leader” in this Administration.
  • Iran is closer than ever to being a nuclear weapons state.
  • Human rights is not a priority for the Administration.

The lesson for the 2012 campaign? It’s more than the stupid economy. It’s a failed Administration.
