OPEC Criticizes Obama Moratorium? Wha???
H/T Hotair If OPEC criticizes Obama for a drilling moratorium you have to wonder if it’s about more than just marketing oil and artificially inflated prices and demand. One would think that OPEC would applaud a moratorium that means more sales for its members. Yet they don’t. Perhaps they are afraid of the world MSM calling for similar restraint in the future? Globally accepted enviro | Read More »
Vladimir? A-Whale? Another Tool ‘Overlooked’ for the Gulf
H/T Hot Air Apparently it’s a skimmer large enough to scoop up in 2 days all the oil we’ve been able to skim in 68 days. (We’ve skimmed 600,000 bbl so far on 68 days. The A-Whale can skim 500,000 bbl in one day. Why didn’t the administration get this ship into the game 60 days ago? Because it’s Taiwanese owned? Because it’s registered in | Read More »
Obama’s Re-Distributive Misery: Product of a Miserable Man
If I were to sum up President Obama’s administration so far in only two words, I would call it ‘re-distributive misery’. While listening to Kyl’s story of Obama telling him that he would take no action to defend our borders until/unless Republicans help him pass comprehensive immigration reform in Congress, we learn that Labor Secretary Solis is inviting illegals to turn in employers who are | Read More »
Obama’s Oil Spill Sleights of Hand
After weeks of ignoring the gulf spill, Obama said today that the buck stops somewhere near him. ‘With me’ I think he said. Careful with his words, like the constitutional professor that he never was. He meant, of course, that he has taken personal responsibility for finding someone to blame – someone that the MSM will eventually co-sign. Erick writes earlier today of essential equipment | Read More »
We Won. Big. Now Whip It. Take a Walk in the Sunshine with My Departed Son.
[promoted from the diaries by haystack...this is an excellent read] With apologies to AG, we won this week, and we won big. But AG is right, it’s time to whip it. I won on Tuesday. I woke up on Wednesday morning and my first thought was… Dear Erik, I won… …because I had stood for central committee partly to set an example for my 12 | Read More »
OMG! My Phone Is a LIAR!
RCP conveys Obama’s idea that iPads, Xboxes, etc. bombard us with all kinds of content, ‘some of which don’t rank all that high on the truth meter’. And Friedman, (who I used to love, but now regard as a crazy guy abusing a bully pulpit) now tells boomers that the tooth fairy is dead. Now I am a serious student of nuance y’see, and I | Read More »
Obama’s Weasel Words on Defense: Preemptive Surrender
Explication. As Goff set forth from the WH web site’s own words on defense policy… and looking toward Erick’s statements on the recent defense developments… The red italics below are Obama’s words, what they really mean I give below in parens… Remember Obama always chooses his words carefully to give himself cover. that can fight and win the nation’s wars. (if they are allowed to | Read More »
Adam Smith Lies to Obama; Result: Misery for Millions
Admittedly, it was an inadvertent lie. Perhaps Adam Smith’s publisher made him do it with an eye toward spurring sales of his book, popularly titled ‘The Wealth of Nations’. Had Obama been aware of the full title of the book, An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, perhaps he could have penetrated the ‘lie’, but perhaps not. Obama has already established | Read More »
Obama’s Ship of Fools Will Need Immunity, Pardons Before Serving
Obama is going to get exactly what he wants: a pliable administration that will deliver exactly what he desires without serious examination of the issues or consequences, and without the benefit of sound but dissenting voices. As a result of his declassification of security memos and findings – and serious talk about investigating or prosecuting those who wrote them – Obama is making sure that | Read More »
CINC (Coward In Cheif) Obama Discards Perfect 200 Year Record, Part II
It turns out that the ‘Perfect 200 Year Record’ I cite above and in the previous article were not quite so perfect and Adams, not Jefferson was the president who finally got it right. And the perfect record is actually a little less than 200 years old, because the issue was not finally settled until after the War of 1812. Jefferson, the first to | Read More »
