Pruden: Another look at a savvy loser

By Wesley Pruden Mitt Romney would defeat Barack Obama if they were matched again today. One or two polls say so. But they’re not matched today and a poll like that is only for a friendly conversation over a cup of coffee. It’s interesting because the Great Mentioner is mentioning Mr. Romney, despite his protests, […]

Pruden: No naps for the war-weary

By Wesley Pruden It’s a little early for the candidates of ‘16 to start calling each other names, but they’re loosening tongues, limbering voices and auditioning invective, anyway.

You might as well ask the cat. Nevertheless, disappointment and disgust with the established order has reached […]

Pruden: Something heroic for Obama’s legacy

By Wesley Pruden Unless he can find something and find it quickly, Barack Obama isn’t going to like his legacy.
