Trump Exposes Another Bush

Donald Trump is a master at making people reveal who they really are. He pushes them to the brink, and forces their true colors. This is why many professional politicians hate him. Trump removes the masks in which they have cloaked themselves their entire lives. From “Low Energy” Jeb, to “Little” Marco, to “Lyin” Ted, each had a melt-down under the spotlight of Trump. In recent weeks, Trump caught his biggest fish, with the collapse…

My Interview with Gary Johnson

On Tuesday, I was invited by the Gary Johnson Campaign to Purdue University for an interview with the Libertarian Nominee for President (Click to Hear). The former Governor of New Mexico was the guest of former Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels. My exclusive interview took place before the two addressed a crowd of more than 1800. Johnson is determined to have a profound influence on this year’s election. Not since Ross Perot has a third party candidate had nationwide…

My Interview with Glenda Ritz

I had the opportunity to sit down with Indiana Superintendent of Schools Glenda Ritz for an interview (Click to Listen). While many reports focus on her combative encounters with Governor Pence and the State Board of Education, I found her to be extremely engaged and friendly. Ritz sees herself as the state’s primary advocate for empowering teachers. This is a natural tendency as she was an educator before being elected. But her passion for classroom…

Young Readies for Battle Against Bayh

On Tuesday, I sat down for an interview with Todd Young (Click here to listen). It has been a whirlwind two weeks, as the race for U.S. Senate turned upside down. Young went from heavy favorite to defeat Baron Hill, to a hotly contested battle against Evan Bayh. Young appeared unfazed by the task of taking on Bayh and his roughly $9 million war chest. In fact, he seemed to relish the opportunity. “We are ready for…

Pros and Cons of Picking Pence

Multiple agencies are reporting Donald Trump will announce Mike Pence as his Vice President Friday morning. Though Pence was labeled the “safe” pick by many, it is a more loaded selection than meets the eye. There are many positives and negatives that come with picking Indiana’s governor. Pence establishes some trust between Trump and groups that have been slow to get on board. Two in particular are the establishment/donor class and evangelical wing of the…

Establishment Crashes the Trump Party

Donald Trump’s Indiana victory was a beautiful thing. Not just because he wrapped up the nomination here or lapped the field in the process. Those were icings on the cake. The thing that mattered most was the way it happened. Trump’s win came on the backs of countless foot soldiers who volunteered their time and treasure to put out signs, knock on doors, and defend smears from members of the Republican Establishment. They were the…

Our Awful Primary Process

Evan Bayh’s apparent return to politics is the latest reminder of the rotten way we place candidates into nomination in Indiana. Taxpayers are forced to pay for worthless primaries. The results mean nothing. Primaries are just fundraising tools, designed to bolster name identification at the public’s expense. In April, I appeared on local television and said the primaries were nothing but a club sport, and citizens had no business funding the charade. At the time,…

The Other Side of Donald Trump

In 1990, Ryan White passed from complications of AIDS. He was a national treasure, that Hoosiers called their own. Despite enduring hatred, bigotry, and ignorance about his disease, White spent the final years of his life educating people. The teenager’s courage caught the attention and earned the admiration of many celebrities, including Elton John, Howie Long, Greg Louganis, and yes, Donald Trump. Elections are about more than policy. They are about people. Who a person is as…

Gregg and Pence: Pot Meet Kettle

John Gregg’s “healthcare for life” is ridiculous. There is no way around it. His milking of the system is inexcusable. Even the most loyal Democrat cannot defend it with a straight face. That said, Governor Pence should stop short of taking a victory lap. He is likely throwing stones from a glass house. Have you seen the sweetheart deal available to him during his time in congress? The governor has yet to release how much…

Trump’s Home Run on Trade

Newsflash: Donald Trump is not the bad guy. Showman? Yes. Insensitive? Sometimes. Politically Incorrect? Often. That said, when it comes to picking the best choice to help working Americans, Trump is the answer. Yesterday’s speech on trade in Pennsylvania reinforced the obvious. Hillary Clinton is the real villain of 2016. Her husband, with dutiful wife by his side, championed disastrous policies that crushed the middle class. It was the Clintons who were cheerleaders of NAFTA,…
