Are we asking the wrong Benghazi questions?

    I can’t help but be reminded of almost any big city police chief when I listen to the question even the conservative and independent media ask. What did he know and when did he know it? Sure that was a valid question for the Water Gate investigation forty years ago, but not because it was forty years ago, but because at the root of that | Read More »

    What New Jersey needs more than Government assistance.

    President Obama visited with Governor Christie today.  For this, President Obama deserves recognition. Given all the times Obama did not react to emergencies  either in an appropriate or timely manner this interest in Sandy is evidence that given enough time the President can at least learn something new. But the truth is, there is Zero benefit to the President touring the devastation. His presence didn’t | Read More »

    Obama creates first campaign dashboard sticker – Forward

    Reminds me of the labels Will Smith stuck on the handle of his “space craft” in the movie Independence day. Back in the fall of 2010, I heard Obama state that the Republicans had “driven the car into the ditch and now they want the keys back”. Oh, Republicans are welcome to come along for the ride but they have to sit in the back. | Read More »

    I worry a bit about RedState

      The diaries section seems to have evolved into a solid forum much like the original RedState started out. But I don’t know if anyone else noticed but the front page has lost it’s edge. There are still occasional good articles by the front page authors but everything from the morning briefing to the headlines tends to get stale. Some days there is nothing new  | Read More »

    Interdiction strike – Political style.

    A successful Military conflict, American style, involves a wide range of tactics. Interdiction strikes help achieve success by undermining the ability for the enemy to respond, damaging resources and transport systems or diverting resources needed elsewhere. Romney/Ryan has a great opportunity to achieve success and a key factor in that political contest would be a 50 state assault on the Obama machine. We know that | Read More »

    Asking the wrong question – why Obama won’t take a meeting

    We all know President Obama is the campaigner in chief. Even at a time when he should be focused on more commanding and cheifing, his schedule is filled to the brim with extolling and extorting. So it is only natural that we assumed it was arrogance, ignorance or incompetence that Obama failed to meet with a single leader while they were in New York. But | Read More »

    Spring in the Arab air? Feels more like a Vietnam November 1963

    Being old enough to remember the news and views of the world in 1963 provides a different perspective on our beloved progressive president and his foolish if not completely stupid foreign policy. President Obama is the worst president since LBJ, and the most incompetent since Jummy Carter, combined. And that is a bad combination. Carter meant well, Johnson was a powerful leader. Obama is neither | Read More »

    Romney/Ryan – More Commanding and Chiefing, Less Chipping and Putting

    Did the President have time enough for golf this week I wonder. Even before it was public knowledge that he was a truant who failed to show up at most of the security briefings his focus on his golf game, rather than the Persian Gulf was a disgusting abandonment of his most obvious duty.  And no liberal can defend him with the worn out “he | Read More »

    Take me back to the fifties!!!!

    I remember the 1950’s I remember that if you wanted a job, a hard working or skilled individual with at least  eight grade education only had to ride the trolly down the industrial highway from the steel mills that employed tens of thousands, past the machine shops, fabrications shops, ship yards, warehouses, that employed scores to hundreds down past the garment district, the food distribution | Read More »

    Now that the ticket is settled.

    Sorry, just not that thrilled with Ryan. But in the spirit of defeating Obama I will refrain from attacks on Romney Ryan, after all Obama will be doing that until the election is over. Maybe longer. Rather, I want to focus on things that will matter. Start with spending No matter what a budget says, the only spending a congressional session controls is that spending | Read More »
