Teenagers and children can’t wait. Time for grownups to take over.
Five days ago, I wrote a snarky little item here suggesting that troubles at Chicago based MF Global brokers could represent one more failure for former NJ Governor Jon S. Corzine. I didn’t know or care whether MF would file or escape bankruptcy proceedings. It was pretty clear even then that stockholders of the firm would face harsh consequences. What was unfathomable less than a | Read More »

“Labor is on board, business is on board, we just need…”
President Barack H. Obama spoke these words in Detroit today. “Labor is on board. Business is on board. We just need…” He was speaking to an audience of organized labor, to the accompaniment of cheers in the background: Four more years, Four more years, Four more years! What he said (verbatim) was, “and we just need Congress to get on board” to his plans of | Read More »
The President and The Bible
Dear Mr. President, I was thinking of you Saturday as our rabbi discussed this week’s reading of the Torah. Entitled, Kedoshim, it concerns the definition of mankind as holy creatures. With the Children of Israel still wandering through the Sinai, the Lord instructs Moses to tell them: Ye shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy. It struck me that only a | Read More »
Who are the bitter clingers now?
It seems like only yesterday that (now) President Obama was telling a fund raising audience in San Francisco So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations. Which leads me to wonder, if the repudiation Tuesday is as severe as | Read More »
Memo to Mitch McConnell and Eric Cantor, look into the cameras tomorrow and say this.
Re: President Obama’s recent news conference in support of funding an extension of unemployment benefits with addtional borrowed moneys.

According to Politico, the President told reporters he had snuck out to see one of his daughters play in a soccer game.

Why the West will commit economic suicide, but not stand up for Iranian Greens
Recently, I suggested that Barack Obama should give his Nobel Peace medal to the Muslim, Iranian woman whose government had stolen hers. He of course did nothing of the kind. But as Carolyn Glick points out, he did worse: As he received his Nobel Peace Prize Thursday, Obama did not protest the mullocracy’s repression of its people. He did not offer to give his prize | Read More »
Memo to Pres. Obama: Why not give your Nobel Prize to Ms. Ebardi?
