What Romney did right
Washington Examiner [DC], by Hugh Hewitt

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/12/2012 5:51:35 AM

With postmortems on the Romney campaign piling up faster than broken promises of relief to Sandy´s victims, there is time before the "big deal" gets cut and the national misery deepens to reflect briefly on what Mitt Romney did right -- and there was much he did right. Romney saved the House of Representatives from reverting to Nancy Pelosi´s rule. A bad enough showing from the GOP nominee, or even an uninspired replay of 1996 or 2008, would have left dozens of House freshmen dangling. National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Pete Sessions runs a great operation,

Apparently the majority of voters are not impressed with those qualities he has. And we´ll all suffer for it.

All well and good, but the problem is the rot, the stench of voters who cannot separate good from evil. They are beyond hope, reason, and posses no critical thinking skills whatsoever - and these morons are not going away.. The Country is going to have to hit bottom, and we have to hope there is enough left to pick up the pieces. Putting candidates mentioned in this article like reorganizing the chairs on the Titanic.....´Talk about casting pearls before swines....

As long as we march headlong into bankruptcy with endless borrowing there will be no reason to do the right thing.

Just love how some blame the republicans for the massive voter fraud.

Whatever Romney did, right or wrong, he was by far the better candidate and would have been a superb president.

I am dumfounded by those of us who are simply raising hands in the air to surrender. White flags are everywhere. Is this really who we are now? We don´t want to keep fighting for our country? Instead, we whine about "secession" and "third party" and "dropping out"? We can see what we could have done differently and more effectively. We can also see where the Dems stole, lied and defrauded. I´m with John Hinderaker and Hugh Hewitt and Krauthammer. I´m with the ones who are planning for the next battle, which we will fight better and stronger and, who knows, we may prevail.

If I could blow a bugle, my contribution would be "El Degüello".

I don´t think the problem is Mr. Romney OR the Republican part. I think the problem is the selfishness of voters who can´t see anything greater than themselves. Obama typifies their mindset: Me... Me... Me! We won the election by dividing America into selfish groups that voted only for their personal issues rather than the greater good of saving the country.

Call me crazy but I don´t think the path to success is for Republican to pander to differing groups. I think the path to success is taking the next for years to educate the electorate to the fact that when the country goes down the drain because we are broke, or our national defense is weak, that EVERYONE will suffer greatly.... including THEM!

Its just like the Republicans to bend over and take it from the cheating democrats.. With out Florida alone Obama barely would´ve scraped by, but with Ohio as well the election would have been ours. They just can´t help losing.... Oblowhard will ruin our country and no one with a voice will stand up for us

The bottom line is that there really is a 47%. They want to be bought off and Fauxbama is just the man for the job. Add a few flaky independents and he´s there. I wonder how they´ll like it when he bankrupts the country and they have to take big hits in their handouts but have no jobs to go to.

The lesson of this election was there are too many people that are uninformed about the issues facing this country. The democrats certainly won the young and dumb vote. The question remains should the republican candidate dedicate more time to fluff shows like the View, Letterman, Colbert or should we take steps to encourage the MSM to serve there original purpose of investigating and informing. I suggest the latter. We as conservatives should boycott the advertisers of at least one of the major netwroks. I would suggest NBC and MSNBC. Until there is some sort of accountability built into the news then we should let our buying habits support the fair and balanced.

What Romney did wrong was to listen to the same people who advised McCain. Those advisers are embedded into the GOP establishment. They will still be around in 2016. The "young guns" will either listen to them again, or the party apparatus will be used to defeat them in the primaries just as what happened to Cain, Perry, Bachmann, Gingrich, et al this year. The party itself is at fault, which is why it must go. What, again, is the definition of "insanity"?

The issue is that who votes does not matter. All that matters is who counts the votes. (paraphrase from Joe Stalin)
The Republican ground game has to be more active Republican participation in EVERY precinct. Who catches vote fraud? Election monitors. So long as the dems control the vote count, there will be fraud.
There was fraud in Ohio and Florida, and indeed within any state which lacks Voter ID.
Take that home and think about it.

There wasn´t enough right things for Romney to do.

The states control the voting process in their individual states. The Repub governors have got to pass some type of protection from voter fraud. If they don´t cave to the msm barrage of voter disenfranchisement claims the conservative nominee stands a chance. Voter fraud in rampant in almost all large cities.
EX: in 13 or 14 districts in Phila they had over 99% voters. You can´t get that high of a % even for handing out food stamps or free iphones..

But #8 - where is the Republican Leadership on Rep Allen West´s fight for a recount? If he was a Dem - yo know Pelosi, etc al would be on TV everyday demanding a recount, etc. Instead - crickets.

The Republican Party - that is why so many of us are dispirited, talk about secession, etc because in many ways, the RNC, party leaders are more the problem then the opposition.

It just does not matter. He lost. He is a good and decent man and would likely have been another Reagan. BUT--big BUT, the free stuff crowd and the blacks who just vote for black and the illegals and Mexican Americans who want illegals here are apparently in the vast majority. It was a rout. AND most of us did not see it coming (or maybe it was just me).

Thinking ahead, okay, so they cheated. We knew they would. What did we do about it? A local level campaign to change the voting apparatus by state to prevent this in the future should be part of a movement forward.
The R Party had four years to prepare for this fraud. They didn´t. Now with a clear understanding of what it means we have four years to get it right and get ready.

There are way too many young people who have been indoctrinated by the left. Too many people in their mid thirties and younger believe in the lie brought to you by the educational establishment. I know ´social studies´ teachers in middle school who think that their job is to help your 13 year olds to form ´identities´ with little regard for actually teaching history. Parallels the Hitler youth and young communists, doncha think?

A while back I kept saying to Romney needs to reach out to Latinos and women voters. This is not pandering. This is reaching out to people with legitimate concerns for the nation. He should have reached out to Paul who did NOTHING to help Romney. His people stayed home, all 11 million of them. It´s only fair that they too should suffer the consequence of an insidious Marxist regime because that is what´s coming if you didn´t get the memo.

On this very web site I saw nothing but disdain for Hispanics and women. Mainly because of abortion and Sandra Fluke. We hate abortion and Fluke. We don´t hate women or Hispanics. But the distinction was seldom if ever made especially at camp Romney. We hate illegal immigration. We don’t hate immigrants. Another distinction not made.

Our PACs refused to go toe to toe with the liars. This faux war on women was NEVER refuted. They let it go by and it worked for the enemies of the USA. If I were Marco Rubio I do stay away from the repubs. They don´t have the stones to go against the insidious evil in this country.

BTW Romney, a good man this nation does not deserve. I always liked him. Imperfect but supported him from the time I realized he was going to get the nomination. Will you all call Rubio a RINO too when he is forced to move to center to get votes.

I would love to see Romney keep up the fight. Obama said you can´t change Washington from the inside. One of the biggest changes this country needs is to it´s education system. You can only dumb down education from Washington and support the teachers´ union. If Romney could overcome the education bureaucracy he would have more effect on this country than two terms as president.

I realize that talking with a few voters whose choice for president differed from mine is not a scientific study. But it may offer some insight into why Mr. Romney (for whom I have learned great respect) did not win.

It boils down to one word: Emotion. Those who voted for Obama did so because of their emotions. Those who chose not to vote for Romney, even though they didn´t like Obama, chose not to vote because of emotions.

These folks did not like Romney--perhaps because he was rich or Mormon or wooden. Basically, they weren´t "feeling" him enough to cast their vote for him.

So the lesson for Republicans is this: Yes, you have to have good policies so as not to abuse the electorate. But you also have to connect with voters emotionally, not just rationally, if you intend to win.

A preacher can give a sinner all the good reasons in the world to "get right with God" (whatever that may mean for a particular faith). But if that preacher doesn´t stir that sinner´s emotions--be a channel through which the sinner´s "heart is strangely warmed" by the prospect of salvation--that sinner won´t likely get right with God.

Romney lost because Romney ran an incompentent election effort. The battle ended on the day the "47%" comment came out - we lost all our Latino volenteers within the week for instance. The R2 "team" sat back and let 0bama lead them by the nose - message wise. I spent the summer listening to un-answered 0bama campain ads. It was over by the end of September if not for the 1st debate, but then Romney didn´t follow-up in D2 or 3. Face it - the ´pubs run incompentent election efforts - we simply do not know how to market the brand.

The nominee was a guy who demonstrated huge problems connecting with republican voters in the states he most needed. East coast liberals should be used only as Vice presidential material to balance a conservative ticket.

Vague on immigration, helpless to criticize the very real threats to individual freedoms housed inside a health care monstrosity he crafted, and the wrong guy to champion the needed regulation on Wall Street. Right guy as treasury secretary, but not the guy to campaign as the champion of Main Street. In retrospect, the worst possible choice to articulate the tried and true conservative message.

Companies who blame their customers when they end up filing for bankruptcy are ignorant laughingstocks. So the voters are to blame are they? Principled conservatives warned in vain about Romney from day one but were villified. It´s real simple. Doofus Romney stood for anything, everything and nothing, simultaneously, and the voters knew it in their bones. So they chose the incompetent devil they knew. Stone cold reality.

Some things to bear in mind as my fellow conservatives tear each other apart:

"When we get piled upon one another in large cities as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe."
-Thomas Jefferson

"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."
- Thomas Jefferson

(This Nostradamus character had nothing on Thomas Jefferson).

One more quote:

"I´m wondering how long my fellow countrymen will attack each other, and I wonder what the cost will be."

What Republicans need to do is buy one of the networks -- probably NBC by buying millions of shares of Comcast and reshuffling the board. Then they could reconfigure NBC and line it up with Fox.

Then it would be Fox and Fox-lite against CBS & ABC. If the Koch brothers, Sheldon Adelson, a couple of hedge fund guys and a bank president or two pooled their substantial resources, they could make a dent in Conmcast ownership.

Whatever Republican runs, he/she runs against not just an opponent but the network media, NYT, WaPo. With a network hammer, the playing field might be leveled somewhat.

Romney was the best man for the job , but, for months and months , he was beaten up in the primaries
and by the holier than thou
talk show hosts on the right ,
like Ingraham and Limbaugh.
The same thing will happen in 2016 .
A candidate who might actually have national appeal will be eviscerated and damaged by fellow Republicans
before the Democrats
and the media even get to him.
I like Reince Priebus much ,much better than Steele.
But, we need to update and revamp the RNC .
Perhaps Romney is the guy to save the failing enterprise.
We need better voices and faces to represent Republicans.
The women vote killed us thanks to idiots like Mourdock and especially Limbaugh and Akin happily validating the
anti women stereotypes
that Democrats were promoting.
The nation´s demographics are changing and we need to stop repelling common sense women and legal Hispanics .
I personally have no hope for the majority black population
ever seeing the light.
Eight years of Obama will have encouraged anti white racism and dependence to the point where any
thoughts of mass conversion will be hopeless.
If the RNC can bring the far right , libertarians and the liberal Republicans together to war game a
common strategy ( which means every faction compromising and reining in the vitriol )
we might have a chance in 2014 and 2016.
We cannot keep going on like this and losing.

Ditto to posts #18 and #21. Obama and his filthy political machine stole this election through voter fraud. The higher than possible voter turnout, the bogus "recount" in Florida, the voting machines that flipped votes from Romney to Obama in several states are evidence of fraud. I am certain that many many illegals voted in this election. The report of busloads of Somalis voting in Ohio cannot be overlooked.

Not all of the "47%" want to be on public assistance -- some have lost their jobs due to Obama´s failed economy.

Romney´s electors in the Electoral College should refuse to vote until the the States with blatant fraud hold new elections. Furthermore, the Congress should refuse to ratify the Electoral College vote until a valid (as in honest and true) presidential election is held.

Allen West should stand on his desk in Congress and shout his objection to ratifying the vote, and have wheel barrows of evidence rolled in before the Congress.

Alan West went to court and has been granted a PARTIAL recount. He is now trying for a FULL recount. Because West had a two year term he had to run this year.
I don´t know how they managed it but they redistricted him. My son used to be in his district. Then, in his new district they manufactured so many votes that they exceeded the number of voters in the district.

The Democrats say if he was a gentleman he would concede.

I was not sure at first, but I am now, that this election was stolen, particularly in the battleground states. I think they tried in North Carolina but didn´t quite manufacture enough.

Here is how we can win not only the next election but all elections in the future. The Repbuclians need to go hire Stephanie Cutter and people like her. Listen she doesn´t care who is in the White House she is a "Hired Gun" and will work for the highest bidder. Let her run the campaign from within and the party can keep the principles they have always had. That is the way you fight fire with fire.

Please excuse the second post but I just have to add that because Santorum and Gingrich fought him so hard Romney had no money left to answer Obama´s attacks on Bain and his character for quite a long time.

And why were Santorum and Gingrich hanging on when anyone with a pencil and a piece of paper could see that because there were states they were not on the ballot in and states where they were on the ballot in some counties and not others that there was not a hope in the world that they could get the nomination. We all should have known it and they should have known that it was an exercise in futility and they were just messing it up for our Party.

And here´s what Romney did wrong: He lost. So, after a year of inevitability and invincibility talk from Mitt´s most ardent supporters, it turns out the electorate was too stupid to elect him. Or conservatives were too choosy. Or evangelicals were too bigoted. Or the TEA Party was too loud. Or whatever alibi the Romney operatives are pushing these days to explain their failure. Here´s the deal: From day one of the primaries, Team Romney ran exactly the campaign they wanted, and they lost to the worst president in U.S. history. It turns out the Romney Campaign was as arrogantly clueless and politically tone deaf as some of us feared. I respect Romney as a man and as a businessman, so here´s the bottom line: Mitt was hired to do a job, he hired his team, and they didn´t get it done. I feel sorry for Mitt Romney, but I feel worse for my country.

I give President Romney credit for a hard fought race...

WE had to win -- BIG -- in order for the "fraud" element of the demorat machine to be defeated....

Soooooo -- my fellow Americans -- it wasn´t the right time....

Younger Americans have to suffer some more before their eyes are opened....

Forget Washington DC -- it´s beyond repair....WE must go local and take one step at a time. Work with your republicans locally to shore/up your states....

When the goooooberment mandated school busing 35 years ago here in Chicago -- the public schools were emptied. Unfortunately the kids left behind -- were totally left behind. I had to take care of "mine" so I fled. The same thing will happen with obamacare. Some lawyer will figure out an "opt out". Just be patient....

#21 has stated the only hope

It is up to Republican governors to stamp out the voter fraud in their states. The problem being that The Obamanation of Desolation can now pack the Supreme court with union thugs and ex-ACORN employees that might thwart that.

The Republicans did not lose this election it was stolen from them. Does anyone, ANYONE really think that fewer people voted in this election than the last one?

Historically Demonrats added votes to Demonratic totals This time I think the simply found a way to delete votes from heavily Republican areas. This needs to be proved as even Union thugs, welfare Queens and dope dealers can see how having a small group of people determine the election before hand is dangerous.

I truly believe this presidential election was stolen,way before we went to the polls. The democrats and Obama were far too placid. They knew what was afoot. Millions of manufactured votes before the election even took place. Will the mainstream media investigate? God forbid. The polls were right, when you don´t factor in massive fraud. I´m glad Alan West is still fighting. His election was stolen too. At least it´s exposing more and more impossible scenarios. God bless him!

There is no way Romney got fewer votes than McCain did in ´08. I said on this very forum I believed the phoney polls showing how close the race was served only to mask the fraud when the Won was re-elected. This is beyond sad. I have no words to describe the anger and disappointment I´m feeling.

What Romney did right: he didn´t fight dirty like Obama did.
He did some things wrong, too, like not go on talk shows to show himself more human, and not fighting harder against misinformation by the media & Obama´s team. He didn´t´ explain his platform well enough. He didn´t take ground on Benghazi. He didn´t assure Medicare recipients & people on unemployment that he would continue helping them, and that he would find a way to help the working poor get medical coverage.

I know the media fought it, but we have to know that & buy air time, go on shows, etc., to overcome it.

But there´s much more blame to go around. The GOP should never have made us take a moderate YET AGAIN as our candidate. The media should be sued for FCC violations after their blatantly obvious bias all year. Dem voter fraud is also rampant & hasn´t been addressed.

In the end, I think swing voters who are hurting financially just couldn´t get the nerve to go 4 more years without govt help -- not knowing Romney would have helped them hang on. So, they marked the Obama ballot.

All of the above contributed to this loss.

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas. Toobin came unglued at the disinclination of

Let’s say you got into politics running for office as a Democrat. You hate Rupert Murdoch and Fox News and the Wall Street Journal, and you really, really hate Bill Kristol. You despise bankers and got set up in activism by a group working on behalf of “the working class” and complaining: “Every day the rich tighten the chains . . . . They close the factories, the mills, the mines, and ship our jobs overseas.” You’re part of a group that endorses the Mearsheimer-Walt view that Israeli interests hold American foreign policy captive – a group that also wholeheartedly

The U.S. must stand behind

On the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Gen. James Mattis admonished the 1st Marine Division to “[d]emonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy.’” That motto could serve as a guiding principle for sound national security policy. Regrettably, our allies wonder whether the United States is demonstrating the reverse. Since leaving as secretary of homeland security in January 2009, I have talked with officials from friendly nations in Asia and the Middle East. Increasingly, I hear skepticism about whether the United States remains a reliable ally our friends can trust for support against attacks.

SAN ANTONIO, Tex. — Mayor Julián Castro of San Antonio faced off in a televised debate on Tuesday against a Republican candidate for Texas lieutenant governor, even though Mr. Castro, officially anyway, is not running for anything at all. “Sometimes I get impatient,” Mr. Castro said on a recent afternoon here. “And I figure I have nothing else going on, so I might as well.” The mayor was joking, up to a point. Ever since he became the first Latino to give a Democratic National Convention keynote address in 2012, he and his identical twin brother, Representative Joaquin Castro, the Texas Democrat

Bureau secrets: ‘Censusgate’
e-mails fail the smell test

What is the Census Bureau hiding? Census, which is under investigation by several government agencies and by Congress, is refusing to turn over an estimated 1,900 e-mails and text messages between a regional supervisor in its Philadelphia office, where falsification of unemployment data took place, and a colleague in its Chicago region, who a source has identified as the supervisor’s mentor and confidant. On March 5, under the Federal Freedom of Information Act, I requested all e-mails between Fernando Armstrong, the regional director of the Philadelphia office, and Stanley Moore, Chicago’s regional director, from 2010 until my filing date.

Robber Who Was Homesick
For Prison To Be Sentenced

CHICAGO -- Walter Unbehaun has spent nearly all of his adult life behind bars, so it´s not surprising that he faces sentencing Thursday for yet another crime, a bank robbery last year. His reason for robbing the bank is surprising, though: He was homesick for prison. The 74-year-old high-school dropout and part-time bathtub repairman probably isn´t the first long-term convict to find he prefers being barked at by guards to life on the outside, which has its own demands. But living alone and feeling unhappy, Unbehaun decided to change his situation by committing a crime in order to get caught. On Feb.

Here´s a lesson in online security: Passwords are important. They keep your information safe. Crucially, they also prevent other people from impersonating you. Unfortunately, one of The Switch´s readers learned that the hard way. On a story explaining how the Heartbleed bug could slow down the Internet, a commenter scoffed at the "Heartbleed thingamajig," arguing that the Internet´s handwringing over security was mostly overwrought: I couldn´t give a flying fig about the Heartbleed thingamajig. Two years already the thing has been running loose ... and not a word of someone crying over its damage. Say ... does anyone really know its origin?

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

INDIANAPOLIS | A Portage airman was among the Hoosier troops stationed in Germany that Gov. Mike Pence met Monday on the first stop of his jobs mission to Indiana´s largest European trading partner. Lt. Benjamin DeLaCruz, a 2007 Portage High School graduate, helped show the Republican governor and first lady Karen Pence around the sprawling Ramstein Air Base and participated in a discussion with the governor about the role of U.S. forces in Europe. "On behalf of the men and women serving overseas, I would like to thank Gov. Pence for visiting Ramstein today," DeLaCruz said in a statement released by the

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

Chevron, Dole cases expose lawyer corruption

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers. These rulings are welcome

NFL players have Most Valuable Player awards. Major League Baseball players strive for Cy Youngs and Gold Gloves. For journalists, it´s the Pulitzer. Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
