Noonan: 'People Are Afraid of Change' President Obama did not lose, he won. It was not all that close. There was enthusiasm on his side.

Over the holidays, John Farrell, author of an upcoming biography of Richard Nixon, wrote an op-ed piece in The New York Times confirming what many of us have known for nearly 50 years: In the fall of 1968, Nixon, the Republican candidate for president, deliberately torpedoed President Lyndon Johnson’s efforts to cease the bombing of North Vietnam and begin peace talks to end the Vietnam war.
Johnson was not running for re-election, but his vice president, Hubert Humphrey, was the Democratic candidate for the White House — and Nixon was determined to keep Humphrey from reaping the benefits of good news from Southeast Asia.

During his confirmation hearing Tuesday, Interior secretary nominee Ryan Zinke emphasized the incoming Trump administration’s vow to recommit America to fossil fuels development while disregarding renewables and the need to act on climate change.
Zinke said climate change is not the hoax Trump has said it is, but he falsely claimed the science around it is uncertain, and said that federal energy policy, which determines how the Interior Department manages energy and public land, should heavily favor coal.
If confirmed, Zinke, a second-term congressman from Montana and former Navy SEAL, would oversee all the nation’s national parks and more than 500 million acres of federal public lands, mostly in the West.
Country singer Toby Keith headlined Donald Trump’s inaugural concert, playing three of his nationalist songs and “Beer for My Horses.” But there was a song missing, not just because it was one of his biggest hits, but because it was so right for the occasion. That song was “How Do You Like Me Now,” Keith’s 1999-2000 hit.
The song is addressed to a former high school classmate who rejected—nay, ignored—the singer.
