Team Romney’s war against facts

TAMPA -- It's hard to tell who had a looser grip on reality as the Republican National Convention wrapped up -- Clint Eastwood or Mitt Romney's spin doctors.

Rarely a winner

Entering contests has never been something I liked to consider. I know only too well my limitations. My mother, for example, would often look at me, shake her head, and say, "I don't know what I am going to do if you don't keep growing!" I had often thought the same thing and needed no reminder. My older brother spent a good deal of his time instructing me in my homeliness and stupidity. Not having the traits of beauty or family connections, I grew up well aware of my drawbacks and too wise to draw attention to myself ...

Romney/Ryan: Who, me?

TAMPA, Fla. -- Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have one big problem that must have Barack Obama walking on air: They're running against themselves.

Offseason changes should lead to intriguing NFL season

Kicking off the start of the NFL regular season tonight, the New York Giants will be trying to avoid a fate that hasn't befallen an NFC team in five years. If the Giants don't make the playoffs, they will be the first team in the conference since Chicago in 2007 to play in the Super Bowl and miss the postseason the following year.

'A Loving Heart and Caring Hands'

On a memorable day for them in 1920, Luke and Ella Catoe McLaughlin welcomed their fourth child and only daughter, Annie B., into the world. The McLaughlins then lived on their farm in the Sandy Grove area of the greater Cassatt community. Cassatt was their post office.

Decoding Romney’s odd humor

Mitt Romney probably should not try to joke about President Barack Obama's birth certificate. It's potentially offensive and, worse, he's not very good at it.

All hands on deck

Among journalists, there are those stories that show you what you're made of. They challenge you, maybe even drive you crazy as you try to figure out just what the heck is going on. But they also teach you, not just about the craft of journalism, but about yourself.

Romney’s ‘zero-percenters’

A new poll suggests that Mitt Romney may achieve the nearly impossible: he may receive even less than the tiny 4 percent of the black vote that Sen. John McCain won four years ago.

Electoral College may put Obama in catbird seat

The closer the presidential campaign gets to the November general election, the more the race becomes a numbers game. Looking at previous results and surveying current polls, the general consensus is that the 2012 campaign, like most elections in recent memory, will come down to only a select handful of "swing states."

A learning experience

Many teachers think they are the only ones offering education from their pinnacle of supremacy. I, however, know that this is not true. A wise educator learns much more from his pupils than they derive from him. Certainly, on occasion, my mouth has fallen open in delight, shock, or amazement from my assigned individuals. One class, in particular, stands out in my memory. The whole class was brilliant! How amused they must have been to encounter me. I have never thought that boredom led to entrapment or involvement in the learning process, so many former students still smile and tell ...

Parker: Wacko birds nesting in U.S. Senate

WASHINGTON -- President Obama got it two-thirds right when he said the delayed confirmation of his attorney general nominee, Loretta Lynch, is owing to Senate dysfunction and Republican stubbornness.

Phillips: Take the money and run

Here in the Chronicle-Independent newsroom, we're kind of shaking our collective head about the news which broke Tuesday about the early-morning heist of a complete automatic teller machine (ATM) from Mid Carolina Credit Union in Lugoff. The thief or thieves apparently used a large, stolen piece of equipment to rip the ATM from its concrete base and load it into or onto some sort of vehicle, almost surely a truck, given an ATM's size and weight.

Wilson: Fighting back against food stamp fraud

Every day, in every area of our state, hardworking South Carolina taxpayers are being robbed. They are not held up at gunpoint and their homes are not burglarized. But, they are the victims of theft just the same. Criminals are stealing federal funds and using that money for their personal benefit. They are committing fraud against the food stamp program. In fact, they pocket more than $2 million of your tax dollars every year in South Carolina alone.

Cahn: ‘Madam Secretary’ is terrific TV

From 1999 to 2006, I tuned in to every episode of "The West Wing" starring Martin Sheen. It was one of the smartest shows I've ever watched with a superb cast and excellent writing. Like every television show, it had its ups and downs. Its detractors felt it was too idyllic and -- being an Aaron Sorkin product, like "The Newsroom" in more recent years -- too preachy.

Rich: The American Dream thrives

You may be surprised to learn people sometimes disagree with me. You may be equally surprised I sometimes see their point in the disagreement. Sometimes I agree with the disagreement.
