Hypocrisy, Obama be thy name
Over the past few months Barack Obama has scaled new heights of bloviating hypocrisy, joined in this by almost 100% of the political left. We have heard from time immemorial that while the Democrats just want to get the people’s work done, those dithering Republicans only want to focus on “social issues”. That same brand of hokum is pushed by the establishment wing of the | Read More »
Barack Obama is quite frankly an odd-ball. He is easily the strangest person to rise to the presidency over the past 80 years. He is distrusted by conservatives for many reasons, but I’ve come to the conclusion that we have all missed the boat when it comes to really understanding Mr. Obama. Mr. Obama’s personality appears brittle and while on rare occasions he manages to | Read More »
Obama’s poll numbers contain a ghastly message of doom.
American’s don’t like to give up on their president. We want the president to succeed in a general way because we know if he fails the nation is harmed to some extent. In many respects Barack Obama is on a path blazed by James Earl Carter over three decades ago. More Americans “liked” Carter than thought he was doing a good job as President. That | Read More »
Virginia primary results
After a quick glance around the web this morning I couldn’t find details of the numbers in the Virginia primaries so I went to the Virginia State Board of Elections directly. With 99.65% of the vote tabulated, these are the numbers in the Senate Primary: Allen 167,263 or 65.46% Radtke 58,930 or 23.06% Marshall 17,269 or 6.75% Jackson 12,062 or 4.72% A strong win for | Read More »
The American Prospect calls George W. Bush “a likeable fella”
Politicians of all stripes tend to look better in the rear view mirror but the left has an inordinate fondness for resurrecting Republicans long out of office and finding virtues long hidden to liberal eyes. Ronald Reagan for instance would mightily enjoy his current sterling reputation among Democrats. Vilified by the left as a heartless extremist when he was in office, Reagan is now held | Read More »
Obama Campaign’s Misguided Tactics or: Why Romney’s Record Doesn’t Matter
Recent attacks on Mitt Romney’s time at Bain Capital and now his record as Massachusetts Governor reveal the desperation of the Obama Campaign. As is the case with virtually all elections this one will will turn not on the challenger’s record but on the incumbent’s. With President Obama languishing well below 50% in almost every poll, his people know they have to change the direction | Read More »
The biased “reporting” of Reuters and Patricia Zengerle
The dishonesty and bias of the left-wing media is so pervasive that at times it almost overwhelms my ability to quantify it. Reading a story today on Reuters, I was reminded once again how all encompassing it is. Media dishonesty is insidiously invidious and oh so slyly subtle that often even people who expect to find it don’t see it immediately. This morning I followed | Read More »
Will Smith on French TV: “God Bless America”
This is rather amusing. I don’t know what Will Smith’s politics are but I feel safe in assuming they are left of center. Its enjoyable therefore to watch his face when informed that the new president of France wants to go to a 75% top income tax rate. As Hollywood types go Smith is not a bad guy but he shows again how out of | Read More »
Mark Levin goes off on “political hacks” and the Underwear Bomber fiasco.
Yesterday I went off on the Obama Administration for its handling of the underwear bomber fiasco. This diary entry was met with silence except for one inchoate reply, so I was relieved this morning to awake and find that I am not completely alone in the universe. This is a big deal. What we have here is multiple levels of failure. If the kernel of | Read More »
Odd Case of the BVD Spy.
The still unfolding, or rather unraveling, case of the thwarted underwear bomber plot, is beginning to smell. I make no claims of being an expert on intelligence gathering and I certainly have no inside information on this specific case. However the central question that begs to be asked is why this operation became public knowledge. The AP is being blamed for releasing the story but | Read More »
