ORCA, meet Narwhal. This is how it’s done.
Back in April, I posted an article on my personal website addressing the potential of the Obama juggernaut, Operation Narwhal to win the election. This operation was the ground game that defeated Romney’s Project ORCA and turned out the Democratic vote. I also wrote another post back in 2011 about how Obama could be re-elected, centering on five strategies: 1) the Chicago machine; 2) class and economic | Read More »
Life after Romney, life with Obama
Unlike other bloggers and pundits, I needed a full day to digest the news of this, I admit, deeply disappointing defeat. My first reaction, was thinking about the people I know who voted for Obama and saying to them, “do you honestly know and understand what you’ve done?” To borrow a phrase from Obama’s former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, “the chickens are comin’ home to roost.” | Read More »
With all due respect, Governor Romney, I’m voting for revenge
Short and sweet, Governor Romney, I love my country, but I’m voting for you because of: Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods who died because they loved their country, and their pleas for security and later help during the fire fight went unheeded by the incompetence and politics played by the Administration. REVENGE The lies told by the Administration to the American public | Read More »
Benghazi, Bayonets, and Bullsh**r
President Obama is like fine wine, he gets better with age. The longer he is in office and on the campaign trail, using Air Force One (are we taxpayers getting reimbursed from his campaign?), the more the real unvarnished Obama comes to the forefront. Yesterday, we learned through released White House emails, that key figures within the Administration, and most likely the President knew, that | Read More »
Women voters fleeing Obama – will he absolve Hillary to try to get them back?
Earlier today, President Obama was asked by a pool reporter as to whether Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, was responsible for the security failures in Libya. President Obama, after jocularly responding to how he felt about the upcoming debate and that he was happy Michelle voted early, remained silent. So what’s up? What’s going on here? Reports abound that the women’s vote is leaving Obama | Read More »
Hillary and Bill and Barack and Benghazi and …..Tammy
No words needed ….. the underlying story hasn’t been fully written yet. And, by the way, we haven’t defined which man.
“President” Clinton channels Truman with “the buck stops here” regarding Benghazi security lapse
All the way from Peru, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been ‘presidentesque” in her statement that she takes responsibility. Per CNN’s account: “I take responsibility,” Clinton said during a visit to Peru. “I’m in charge of the State Department’s 60,000-plus people all over the world, 275 posts. The president and the vice president wouldn’t be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by security | Read More »
Closing thoughts on Joe Biden’s VP debate — remember, one heartbeat away from the Presidency
The Twitterverse, blogosphere, and pundits have been in overdrive since last Thursday night’s VP debate. For me, the tweet of David Burge @iowahawkblog summed it up, both before the debate and after: Drinking game: every time you realize Joe Biden is one heartbeat away from the presidency, drink. — David Burge (@iowahawkblog) October 11, 2012 Foreign policy, Mr. Biden’s raison d’être for the Obama administration | Read More »
The Administration’s Libya problem: they’re going to need a bigger bus
In the ongoing it’s not our fault blame game, at Thursday night’s debate, the Vice President trotted out the next meme for the Libyan debacle, “we did not know they needed more security.” At Friday’s White House press briefing, Jay Carney doubled down with a definition of “we”: ”The vice president was speaking about himself, the president and the White House. He was not referring | Read More »
A life-long Democrat asks, “what happened to my party?!”
These words were spoken to me this morning during my annual checkup by my optometrist, a life-long, Chicago North Shore, Jewish, liberal Democrat. I’ve been going to “Dr. K” for at least 20 years, and we never let a checkup pass without discussing politics. He knows my background, and three years ago shared with me that his son was interning for a Republican Congressman in | Read More »
