“Romnesia”–Obama uses a term from the far-left
You’ve probably heard “Romnesia” so much today that you’re no doubt sick of this term. Obama didn’t coin it, but borrows a term from the far-left. From Mother Jones: A Case of Romnesia Mitt Romney’s long history of misremembering his past. —By David Corn | Wed Jun. 20, 2012 3:00 AM PDT If David Corn rings a bell, it may be because he’s often on | Read More »
ANOMALIES OF THE OBAMA YOUTH VOTE: “You must give something back!” (2009, 2010 speeches to graduates in debt and unable to find jobs)
Why does Obama have ANY of the youth vote? Does no one remember when Michelle Obama told graduates in 2009 that “you must give something back”? Before it goes into the Obama memory hole, I’d like to revisit the incredibly naive advice of “give something back” to an audience awash in student loan debt and unable to find jobs.

Obama to Barnard graduates: “Perservere!” (not a word); Maddow interviews Warren, never asks about her controversy
No one else notices these things, I guess, but here goes. OBAMA TO BARNARD GARDUATES — “PERSERVERE! PERSERVERE!” There is video at this site (it’s at the 20-minute mark) and here’s the text: My last piece of advice — this is simple, but perhaps most important: Persevere. Persevere. Nothing worthwhile is easy. No one of achievement has avoided failure — sometimes catastrophic failures. But they | Read More »
“Dinner with Barack and Joe” — nobody won?
Did anyone win “Dinner with Barack and Joe”? Was this an illegal lottery? Can any RedState reader. or any state attorney general, or RNC chair Reince Priebus help me?

Obama offers birth certificate gift campaign items?
Obama is afraid of Jerome Corsi? Donate to his campaign and get an Obama birth certificate mug? Obama is still playing this out, even now, when he should be addressing Congress about a war in Libya? How many absurdist footballs can this guy spike? I somehow got on the Organizing for America mailing list (I tried to sign up once to get into the 2008 | Read More »
FAREED ZAKARIA: I’m not advising Obama! I’ve had a “couple” of conversations!

Origin of Obama’s “scalpel vs. machete” budget cliche
Here I was, sitting with my car in the ditch, drinking my Slurpee, and listening to Obama’s speech. Obama once again said that we need a scalpel, not a machete, to the out-of-control federal budget. The scalpel-vs.-machete cliche appears to date to at least 1980–and is almost always used by a Democrat. I’ve just added it to my Political Glossary: Entry from April 13, 2011 | Read More »
Top 10 questions Bill O’Reilly will ask President Obama, plus top 10 he should ask

Why not ditch the softballs and ask some hardball questions? TOP TEN QUESTIONS BILL O’REILLY WILL | Read More »
“Sorry band of men” (The WTC was attacked by Paul McCartney & Wings?)
What president, on the anniversary of 9-11, says that the Pentagon and the World Trade Center were attacked by a “sorry band of men”? Barack Obama, that’s who. The United States was attacked by Islamic terrorists. If our president can’t say that, why are we fighting in Afghanistan? Sorry band of men?
