Long weekend question

UPDATE, 12/1, 9:35a: Running weekend question through today. Daena still home. _______________ Barbara Walters interviewed Barack and Michelle Obama for ABC’s November 26 20/20. During the interview Michelle said: The truth is, you know, and Barack knows this about me, I, I love kids… There’s a disconnect here, not only on Michelle’s part, who has […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! I’m leaving in 30 minutes to pick daughter Daena up from O’Hare, who is flying in from DC. This year will be the first year all 3 kids, wives, and 4 grandsons will celebrate Thanksgiving at our home. My Mom and Dad will also be here. It is going to be a happy […]

Backlash on “Obama supporters are idiots” poll

Announcing Survivor Sunday

Announcing a joint project by Survivors: Survivor Sunday. I’m VERY happy about this. Ever since the election, I’ve been convicted to call on pastors and priests around the country to acknowledge the January 22nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade by preaching on the sanctity of life. I just haven’t had the time to organize an […]

Breaking news: Planned Parenthood offers Christmas gift certificates

And just when you thought you could no longer be shocked. Well, sit down. Planned Parenthood of IN is selling Christmas gift certificates. And yes, they can be used toward abortion. Can’t respond any better than Matt did at WISH-TV…

New Stanek WND column, “Pro-life counterfeits: A case of mistaken identity”

I probably don’t need to say much more than the Washington Post and USA Today wrote glowingly of a new “pro-life” plan. Red flags arise. Last week USA Today editorialized: Realism seems to have struck some ardent foes of abortion. After 35 years of trying to outlaw the procedure nationally while chipping away at abortion […]

The tidal wave of death

I haven’t written on Barack Obama’s cabinet appointments because frankly I found it too depressing. This is like watching a Culture of Death tsunami. Nothing we can do to stop it….

On the one hand, the armchair thinking goes, having a grandchild may make the Iowa State Fair a less appealing place to spend the summer of 2015. Why beg donors for money at dozens of events a month when there’s a happy baby to spend time with in New York?

On the other hand, a grandchild could also heighten the pull of history for [Hillary] Clinton – the sense that she owes it to the daughters of future generations to walk the rest of the path toward becoming the most powerful woman in history….

Besides, in the vernacular of cable television, becoming a grandmother can only “humanize” Clinton, who has long been critiqued for her aloof demeanor and rigid personal discipline.

The Republican strategist Michael Goldfarb suggested the timing of the pregnancy was fortuitous for that reason, tweeting: “Just in time for HRC to have a baby on stage with her when she announces she’s running, right?”

The timing would seem to work out that way.

On Chelsea Clinton’s Facebook page, throngs of admirers noted the same hypothetical timeline. “I am sure your Mom will love having a grandchild running around the White House with her!” one wrote. Another imagined: “The first grandchild to be raised in the White house! Hillary giving the baby a bottle while giving a press conference. How wonderful!”

Still another posted a photo of an infant in a “Ready for Hillary” shirt.
