Here are, in my view, interesting, noteworthy columns and articles from the past week that I highly recommend (You will note that on occasion, I do not endorse the opinions of the author and may point that out. Despite my disagreements, I still feel the piece is worth a read).
Why Obama will lose Wisconsin
"One of the miscalculations of the Left's recall efforts was what it would do to conservatives. They came out of the woodwork to help re-elect Gov. Scott Walker and the recall re-invigorated the Tea Party. But it also gave conservatives an important test run of their ground game."
Rove: Sifting the numbers
"It comes down to numbers. And in the final days of this presidential race, from polling data to early voting, they favor Mitt Romney...But doesn't it all come down to the all-important
4 reasons to believe Mitt will win the election next week
"So, the question becomes: Which polls do you believe? Although there's no way to be sure yet, I believe Gallup and Rasmussen. Not only do I think Mitt is going to win Ohio, I think he's going to win by a large enough margin that Ohio doesn't matter. Here's why I say that..."
'You have the blood of an American hero on your hands'
"What did President Barack Obama know and when did he know it?

These are all questions that demand to be answered..."
If a tree falls on Romney, what sound would liberal pundits hear?
"How do you know if a pundit or columnist is a liberal? If he or she claims Romney said he wanted to abolish FEMA."

"If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a thousand times: It’s your civic duty to vote. Between now and Election Day — unless you’re planning an extended session in a sensory-deprivation tank — you’ll no doubt hear it again. And again.
"Don’t believe it. It’s not your duty to vote."
The despicable "God intends rape" comments
"The accusations that Indiana U.S. Senate candidate Richard Mourdock believes 'God intends pregnancies resulting from rape' reveal a despicable attitude toward justice and truth. But even worse, the commentary and debate taking place about rape pregnancies is profoundly hurtful to both women who became pregnant through rape and their children."
The Mourdock Moment
"A closer look at Mourdock’s comments reveals that the candidate was not in any true sense calling rape 'something that God intended to happen.' Everything Mourdock said in that answer flowed from his stated presupposition that life begins at conception, and that every human life is a gift from God. Nevertheless, the liberal media went into full apoplexy, painting Richard Mourdock as a woman-hating extremist with reprehensible views on an issue as serious as rape."
Suicide by choice? Not so fast
"Next week, voters in
