Columnist: Conservatives Must Not Let Media Pick The Candidate

Douglas MacKinnon warns conservatives what happens when they compromise on a political candidate. (Hint: Someone like Barack Obama is elected president)

From his column in Investor's Business Daily:
Leaving aside the televised, overly scripted, predictable and marginally useful "debates" now taking place between the Republican candidates for president, there are much more important discussions going on between conservatives and independents who are unified in their belief that for the good of the nation, Barack Obama must be defeated.

Those discussions — taking place across kitchen tables, in lunchrooms, or in neighborhood bars after a week of hard work — are trying to determine which path to follow in the approaching political fork in the road.

One of those paths will most likely lead to the defeat of Mr. Obama. The other could very well ensure his re-election.

It is critical for Republicans, conservatives, and independents to remember that from the 2008 GOP field, John McCain had the stamp of approval from the mainstream media.

In fact, the liberal media worked overtime to resurrect his then all but comatose campaign. Why?

That same liberal media told us that independents and a good number of Democrats just loved McCain.

How state lawmakers pump up pensions

Notorious bank robber Willie Sutton once was asked, "Why do you rob banks?"

He had a straight-forward answer: "Because that's where the money is."

Fast-forward to 2011 and you could ask your favorite public servant, "Why do you run for office?"

The answer? "Because that's where the money is."

USA Today has published a scathing look at how politicians milk the system to collect millions in pensions.

In many cases, the politicians have qualified for benefits at the state level while moving on to higher office at the federal level, where they will once again reap the financial rewards of "public service."

From USA Today:
More than 4,100 legislators in 33 states are positioned to benefit from special retirement laws that they and their predecessors have enacted to boost their pensions by up to $100,000 a year, a USA TODAY investigation found. Even as legislators cut basic state services and slash benefits for police, teachers and other workers, they have preserved pension laws that grant themselves perks unavailable to voters they serve or workers they direct.
Pennsylvania politicians are among the worst offenders, according to the investigation.

From USA Today:
Since 1996, 67 retired Pennsylvania legislators have collected $7 million in pension checks that they could not have received if they' had the same retirement age as most state workers, USA TODAY found. Another 40 who took early retirement also benefited from the younger retirement age.

Those benefiting include seven former state legislators now in Congress, earning $174,000: Democrats Chaka Fattah and Allyson Schwartz and Republicans Charlie Dent, Jim Gerlach, Tim Murphy, Todd Platts and Joseph Pitts.

From an op-ed published in The Pottstown Mercury:
Pennsylvanians have a right to an honest, open debate on the issue. Unfortunately, such honesty and openness is questioned when the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission refuses to share information and then gives two conflicting answers as to why. Whether one is for or against the tolling proposal — and I am opposed to it — access to information is crucial to any public-policy debate.

A GOP challenger for Bob Casey Jr.?

Pennsylvania Republicans are looking for a viable candidate to challenge liberal Bob Casey Jr. for one of the state's two U.S. Senate seats in 2012.

Casey has made no impact in Washington over the past five years and his blind obedience to the failed Barack Obama-Harry Reid agenda could be costly with voters who are fed up with incompetence in D.C.

While political newcomers David Christian and Steve Welch want to take on Casey, GOP officials would rather see one of two Southeastern Pennsylvania House members enter the Senate race.

Republican moderates Jim Gerlach and Charlie Dent are proven vote-getters and could pose a serious problem for Casey. Even first-term House member Patrick Meehan, a former U.S. Attorney, could knock off Casey, whose entire political career has been based on his father's name and his unwillingness to take a position on any important issues.

Those kind of feckless politicians are out-of-style in Washington.

Supersized buyouts for school chiefs under scrutiny

Why do school board members elected to represent taxpayers hand over hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars to overpaid school officials so they would leave? Where is the accountability?

From an article by Christina A. Samuels in Education Week:
Arlene Ackerman's $905,000 settlement with the Philadelphia district grabbed headlines, but she isn't the only Pennsylvania superintendent who has been shown the door in recent months with a generous settlement in hand.

According to media reports, William Hall, who led the 3,050-student Gettysburg district, left in February with $542,000. That included two years of salary and forgiving the mortgage on his house, which he had bought from the district's vocational education program. In August, Gerald Zahorchak, Pennsylvania's former secretary of education, was bought out a year into his five-year contract to lead the 17,700-student Allentown district. He will be paid a year's salary of $195,000 and a $55,000 lump sum.
