What a shameful place to find ourselves in at the end of 2015. If all I knew about America was what I heard from our presidential candidates, I would wonder why anyone would live in a country that lacks the tiniest shred of decency.
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus’ letter complaining to NBC News about last week’s debate1 is an embarrassment for Republicans not because of what was said, but because it had to be said at all. The party that repeatedly uses bias in the media as an excuse for its failure to thrive should be looking inward instead of blaming the press for its PR problems.

For those of you who haven’t yet seen the video of Hillary Clinton mocking her email scandal with a comment about disappearing messages, you can view it here on The Hill. The FBI apparently doesn’t think that the controversy is something to make light of even while the worst woman in U.S.
Barack Obama is out to win the 2016 election, but he won’t participate in a single debate. He won’t be on any primary ballots.

Here’s a great suggestion for any fast-talking conservative who wants to lead this country with a new-fangled vision for America. Instead of wasting your media dollars and our time rambling on about a “new day,”1 “telling it like it is,”2 “a New American Century,”3 going from “hope to higher ground,”4 or scoring a victory against the “Washington machine,”5 try offering us something we haven’t heard before.
