It seems Pope Francis needs to brush up on his Tertullian!

It has been reported (in The ChristLast Media, I must note) that the current Pope does not like the phrase "lead us not into temptation...

"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

Boy, you guys in Ohio will be glad when this is over.

Ed Rogers, of The Insiders blog at Washington's other newspaper, thinks the race for President is down to six states partly because The Money Raiser From The High-Yellow Lagoon isn't raking in the big bucks this time around.

Obama and his message get smaller

President Obama keeps blaming former president George W. Bush for our economic problems because he thinks enough people will believe this excuse. His latest attempt to distract voters is even more insulting. Trying to escape a referendum on himself, Obama now says the election is about who wants more firefighters, teachers and police at the local level. Yes, Mitt Romney is the enemy of those brave souls and Obama is their savior. Please. Does the race have to be this dishonest this early? Is Obama so exhausted that the best he can do is hide behind hometown heroes while he denies the failure of his economic plans and the harm caused by his growing deficits?

This fits with Obama declaring that Republicans are waging a "war on women" and his White House saying Republicans are cruel to poor children. People don't buy it. It's over the top.

I've been saying it is too early for Obama to panic. But if his campaign isn't more serious than this and if he can't honestly talk about our problems and his plans to solve them, then he might as well try some panic. Panic could not produce a worse result than the hollow, dishonest campaign he is running now.

As Obama and his message get smaller, I think the race is narrowing to fewer states than most analysts might believe. We will probably know for sure after the Fourth of July, but I think we will have a six-state campaign starting pretty soon. They will be: Colorado (9), Iowa (6), Nevada (6), New Hampshire (4), Ohio (18) and Wisconsin (10), for a combined 53 electoral votes. In the next few weeks, I expect it will become clear to the Obama campaign that Florida, North Carolina and Virginia are lost and not worth the fight. I thought Carter was bluffing when he talked about Obama's money woes, but it is looking like Obama really won't have the money to keep as many states as he would like competitive.  We will have a relatively long campaign, fought on a small field. Given the lack of creativity, imagination and honesty that the Obama campaign has been able to sustain so far, his operatives should fear that the president will wear out his welcome when he has to campaign for so many days in so few places.

 Hee-hee. "Jug-ears fatigue".

I assume a major strategic overhaul is underway at the Obama campaign headquarters.

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
