It’s time for U.S. to come together

The preliminary results are in, and it appears a few hundred less voters came out to the polls in Lincoln Parish this Tuesday than in the 2008 presidential election.

What this election means

Gallagher, Maggie.jpg

There is no point in spinning —- conservatives need to face honestly what this election means.
A first take: Gov. Mitt Romney tried to win while leaning on only one leg of the old Reagan coalition: jobs, jobs, jobs, economy, economy, economy. Against a president with a poor record on the economy, he lost.
