We’re going to end …Continue reading "A Tale of Two Editorials"
By Dave Andrusko I’ve watched presidential elections since just after time began (aka 1960) and in retrospect you could always point to a turning point. Most of the time you didn’t know it at the time, which is not the same thing as saying hindsight is 20-20, but you could looking back. For what it’s …Continue reading "The Turning Point of 2012?"

By Dave Andrusko In “Are the Scales Falling from the Public’s Eyes about Obama?” I mined a column by Peggy Noonan for her insights into the public’s current mood about President Obama.

By Dave Andrusko We will be talking here about numbers, so please bear with me because they are important. They tell us what is going on—or seems to be going on—with respect to issues and candidacies we care about as pro-lifers. There are five sets of numbers that are the foundation. #1. From Rasmussen Reports, …Continue reading "Understanding where we are at by looking at five sets of numbers"

By Dave Andrusko As mentioned in “NRLC Warnings Prove Prophetic,” I received many, many responses to the stories we wrote last week which attested to just how far the anti-life group is willing to go. What I didn’t mention was the equally encouraging number of you who were not snookered by the mini-wave of stories …Continue reading "What to take away from current Presidential polling numbers"
By Carol Tobias, President National Right to Life Pro-lifers must unite to defeat President Obama. Why? Let me count just some of the ways: 1. Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton: These companion 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decisions overturned the laws in 50 states and gave us widespread abortion on demand.
