Last quarter GDP revisions are in, and they are not good. The economy grew at an anemic 0.1% as opposed to earlier estimates of -.01%. As President Obama campaigns around the country with his message of “scarequestration,” he has been warning that the economy could experience losses totaling over 700,000 jobs. Curiously, that figure is strikingly similar to the Ernst & Young study warning Obama’s tax hikes would cause approximately 710,000 Americans to lose their jobs. Hmm?

As President Obama is set to give his State of the Union address, conservatives pundits are kicking around whether or not he will give the left another wink and a nod as he did with his inaugural address. They have good reason to suspect that considering his track record. In past SOTU speeches, the president was called a liar in the middle of his sentence, and let’s not forget Justice Alito mouthing “not true.” There are two major considerations that conservatives are ignoring.

The devil is in the details. At least that is what I keep hearing. The announcement from the Senate that the bi–partisan coalition reached a principled agreement on immigration reform sparked a reaction that I must admit, puzzled me.

Ann Coulter wrote a column in which she described the proposal as a “Path to Oblivion” for the GOP. Ann and others claim this proposal is nothing less than total amnesty and cautioned conservatives that we will be sealing our electoral fate. Her alternative is, in essence, to wait until the political pendulum “swings” back to the right.
