Carly Fiorina has become a darling among conservatives hungry for an unapologetic advocate for rolling back big government.

That — and the fact that she sees America as a land of opportunity, not sexist oppression — means she’s also driving liberal feminists crazy.

The more I hear Fiorina speak, the more I like what she has to say. She actually ANSWERS questions, without lip service, or rhetoric.

Common sense. Remove the flag from official grounds, leave monuments alone. 

And although there is some racial disparity among the numbers...not a terrible amount. Minorities agree as well.

It might be the same as an atheist being denied service at a muslim business, depends on what the service is.

If it's to sell flowers or a falafel, yeah, you can't do that.  If it's because you're asking them to prepare speech on your behalf ("Anna and Beth on your wedding!" on a cake or perform the decorations, or otherwise attend your function), then, yes, you can deny service.  Or at least you could until now.

But I bet that if that Muslim cake-baking business denied an atheist's request for a cake with a likeness of Mohammed on it, the left wouldn't cry about denial of service, but would denigrate whoever requested the offensive-to-the-proprietor service.  Personally, I don't think either business should lose the right to deny service.

Having sensitive materials in vulnerable locations is why Clinton CIA chief John Deutch was forced to leave his post and stripped of his security clearance. It is why former CIA chief David Petraeus pled guilty to “mishandling classified materials,” which he gave to his mistress.

Those scandals are dwarfed by a private server stuffed with top-level materials and still not scoured by government experts. Of course, it might be all about yoga. After all, Clinton has been very flexible with the truth.
President Bill Clinton had a problem. One of his most senior national security officials, John Deutch, had been discovered working on classified materials at home. The administration acted quickly,...

All these adjustments, and the further interventions they'll call forth, are a waste of resources. The steady accretion of regulatory burdens on employers has accelerated in recent years and is one of the things holding American enterprise back. Obama should be looking for ways to help businesses succeed, rather than for ways to distract them from that task.

Wage stagnation is a pressing issue. But it cannot be solved by White House fiat. Fiscal and monetary policies that restore full employment are crucial. Increasing the supply of well-educated workers, and promoting innovation and competitiveness will push up incomes, too.

Under the heading of "middle-class economics," there's a long list of smart measures the government can adopt to help working people prosper. Micromanaging the labor market isn't on it.
Not necessarily -- and his overtime pay expansion will be a burden on businesses.

I have fought for this for over a decade; maybe we are finally a the moment? Hope springs eternal:

But as the dust settles on the Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage, it's becoming clearer that the debate over the issue is going to shift to one of religious freedom. And on that issue, there's much more of an opening for libertarians and social conservatives to get along.

At the core of libertarianism is the believe that people should be able to do whatever they want short of using force or coercion on somebody else. It makes sense why libertarians wouldn't oppose gay marriage, for the reason that two men or women getting married doesn't injure anybody else.

... 

Whatever their differences on the underlying issue of homosexuality and gay marriage, it will be hard for many libertarians to justify any sort of government coercion forcing individuals to violate their deeply held beliefs. As a result, they'll find themselves increasingly — and begrudgingly — on the same side as social conservatives on many of the looming debates.
The Republican Party, broadly speaking, is comprised of many factions that are often at odds with one another. Prominent examples are the battles between the grassroots and the national party establishment and between defense hawks and non-interventionists. Perhaps fiercer than any of these fights is the long-standing conflict between social conservatives and libertarians. But when the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage last month, they cr...

Here is Rick Perry's speech today; video is also available. I suggest everyone take some time and look at it. Well done, and the message is one conservatives should be considering and focused on.
