Well, that’s what happens with an affirmative-action debate team.
The first debate’s over. Obama had his hat handed to him by Mitt. James Taranto, in an excellent piece in the WSJ, suggests that Obama’s failure was inevitable, because he’s been coddled, pampered, by the MSM, and thus the first time he faced off with an articulate, prepared, challenger, Obama wasn’t ready. The problem with the normally estimable Mr. Taranto’s thesis is that it suggests | Read More »
Should Romney attempt to force the first debate to focus on foreign policy? It could be a game-changer.
This morning, the news is breaking that contrary to what Susan Rice and other administration figures told the American people ad nauseum about the attack in Benghazi, the Administration knew within 24 hours that it was an organized attack by Al Queda. They even knew the identity of the person responsible for planning the raid. And furthermore, despite multiple bleated promises to seek the facts, | Read More »
American Jews need to “make some noise.” How about blowing a shofar outside the White House?
Well, well..it seems our president won’t be distracted by any “noise” as he ponders and pontificates how to resolve the growing crises in the Middle East. “Noise” must be eubonic-speak for “Bibi,” because the Israeli Prime Minister has of late publicly castigated Obama for continued failures to support Israel, and a strong anti-Iranian, position. Yom Kippur begins tomorrow, the Day of Atonement, the holiest day | Read More »
Does the Muslim worl d want Obama to LOSE the election? (or, why are they rioting NOW, a few weeks before the election)
As we continue to watch the Muslim world degenerate into chaos; the Arab spring heading towards an Arab (nuclear?) winter, with riots all across the would-be Caliphate, there is one question that has yet to be asked: Do the Arabs/Muslims/Islamofascists/terrorists actually WANT Obama to lose the election? Yes, they are fanatics, but they have always displayed a keen understanding of American politics. So now, in | Read More »
How to explain the polls? Is there a “Tom Bradley effect” in play in 2012? Predicting a 54-46 win for Mitt, ( and get ready for endless charges of a “racist” America)
The conventions are over. The post-convention “bounces” ( if indeed they ever existed) have vanished. Polls now show the race as basically a dead heat, well within the margin or error. Ah, the polls, these damned, infernal polls. They also show that Obama remains personally popular, his “likability” above 50%. Yet at the same time, a solid majority of Americans believe that the country is | Read More »
Has anyone noticed?: Clinton’s BIG speech to compete against NFL opener…nobody will watch
Months ago, the NFL announced that it was moving its opening day extravaganza to Wednesday night, so as NOT to detract from Obama’s coronation…er, acceptance speech the same night. Well, the party that has scrubbed all references to God from its platform has now learned WHY people pray….because, well..plans have a funny way of NOT working out. Way back then, it was envisioned that Obama | Read More »
Whither Chuck? Schumer has been AWOL these last few months, and what might it mean?
Way back, when he was just another junior Dem congressman from NY, the standing joke among those who covered the Hill was that the most dangerous place to be in DC was between Chuck Schumer and a TV camera. Well, that strategy has surely payed off for Schumer, helping elevate him to a key Senate leadership spot in the Democrat caucus, and a major player | Read More »
A pox on Joe Soptic! Actuarially, Obama is already directly responsible for multiple deaths of peoples’ wives/husbands/sons/daughters.
Among the high lights ( or perhaps low lights is MORE apt) of this weekend’s talk shows, is the continuing refusal of the Obama campaign to denounce the vile Superpac ad in which Dem stooge Joe Soptic smears Mitt Romney by attempting to blame Romney for the death of Soptic’s wife. The multiple lies in this ad have been dissected many times in the conservative | Read More »
Olympic moment: Aly Raisman clinches US women’s gymnastics gold medal in Londonistan to the tune of “Hava Nagila”
In case you missed it, am extra-special special Olympic moment: The US womens’ team won the team gold medal in gymnastics yesterday, due in part to some awesome individual performances, as well as several spectacular implosions by some members of the Russian team. Going into the last rotation, the floor exercises, the US basically needed three solid performances ( no major mistakes) to win the | Read More »
“It’s all over but the shouting!” Bill Clinton is confident that Obama will LOSE in November.
The Democrat establishment and the MSM are rejoicing at the imminent announcement ( if not already made) that Bill Clinton will nominate Obama, and make the case for his re-election. Why any Democrat would find this annoucement a source of joy boggles the mind. At the very least, it shows how worried, how desperate, the Obama campaign is; that they are willing to give Bubba | Read More »
