More
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America get a kick out of CNN commentator Areva Martin telling radio host David Webb his success is a result of white privilege - until Webb tells her he is black. They're also aghast as 59 percent of registered voters support a 70 percent marginal tax rate on the nation's highest earners, including 45 percent of Republicans. And they shake their heads as Beto O'Rourke openly wonders whether our "empire" can "still be managed by the...

More
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are glad to see Republican leaders denounce the latest controversial comments from Iowa Rep.

Gabbard Slams Dem Bigotry, Harris Ready to Run, America's Savings Crisis

1/10/2019
More
While Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has come under deserved fire for defending Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are applauding Gabbard today for being the only Democrat willing to stand up to Senate Democrats who contend that being a member of the Knights of Columbus is disqualifying for service as a federal judge. They also brace for the imminent presidential campaign of California Sen. Kamala Harris, who is very liberal but is...

1/7/2019
More
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are grateful to see House Democrats revealing their real goals right from the start - impeachment, huge tax increases, abolishing the electoral college - and hope Americans see what they'd be getting if Democrats also controlled the Senate and the White House.
