So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Saturday February 14, 2015.

Matt Lewis has a terrific article up at the Week entitled “Obama, gay marriage, and wrapping a lie in the cloak of faith.”

When President Obama and his people refused to meet with Sunni tribal leaders in Iraq who were looking for help against ISIS, President George W. Bush stepped in to grease the machinery and get some doors to open. Sadly, the Sunni’s still left empty-handed.

Liberals are all too comfortable imposing their values onto other people – it has to stop if we want to keep a free nation.

The Governor of Oregon, John Kitzhaber (D-OR), will resign amidst an ever-widening ethics violation scandal that has been brewing in Oregon.

Why does the media keep asking ridiculous “science” questions of our politicians? If they really want to know the answers to “science” questions, David Harsanyi has a few better options for them to choose from.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R-WI) never finished college and this is apparently an issue for liberals. The question is, why?

The war on Jeb Bush? Politico has an interesting, if falsely-premised, story about the rough waters ahead for Jeb Bush.

Jeb Bush is a deeply flawed Presidential candidate, but those flaws don’t seem to be hindering his fundraising abilities. Bush has become a fundraising dynamo.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) doesn’t really believe that climate change is something we need to be super-worried about… but his recent answers on some climate change questions are raising eyebrows. Now we’re left to wonder if his climate change hedging will hurt him during the primaries?

More than half of Americans think that President Obama’s comparison between ISIS and the Crusades was inappropriate.
