It’s Official: Barack Obama Is A Pariah
I told you Barack Obama had become a pariah among Democrats. Back in March he went to Missouri to raise money for Senator Claire McCaskill, who is not even on the ballot this year. He ignored Robin Carnahan who is running for the Senate. In fact, Carnahan was in DC on the same day and cryptically said we’d all have to talk to the White | Read More »
Barack Obama Heads One Way. His SEIU Goons Head Another. Will the GOP Fight?
Barack Obama is headed to “Main Street” this week — that part of the country most particularly getting the shaft because of his policies. Obama is going to declare that fighting Wall Street helps Main Street, despite Wall Street creating the wealth to help Main Street get bank loans. The reason Obama is doing this is simple — small businesses are, according the recently released | Read More »
Billy Graham’s Son Is Too Christian For Barack Obama’s Army
Billy Graham’s son Franklin, a solid evangelist in his own right, was invited to give the address at the Pentagon’s National Day of Prayer service. Barack Obama’s administration has revoked the invitation. Why? Well, it turns out Franklin Graham really believes in Christ and holds that Christ really is “they way and the truth and the life.” Consequently, Franklin Graham has spoken out about Islam | Read More »
Is the Obama Administration Behind An Astroturf Anti-Tea Party Website?
“Cass Sunstein has favored the government using outside parties as government propaganda agents to paint their opposition as fringe and undermine their credibility.” Astroturf is the act of professional interest groups designing campaigns that appear to be grassroots efforts, but are not. It is what the left has accused the tea parties of being. Only more and more it looks like the anti-tea party movement | Read More »
The White House Phone Rang at 3 a.m.
Remember back during the 2008 campaign Hillary Clinton ran that ad asking who you’d want to be in the White House when the “3 a.m. phone call” came? 3 hours after midnight Eastern time this past Saturday, that 3 a.m. phone call came. The President of Poland, his wife, major government and military leaders, and others all died in a horrible plane crash in Russia. | Read More »
Barack Obama Bans College Internships, But Only in Free Enterprise
“Barack Obama is opposed to an individual’s right to make the individual’s own decisions about what is in the individual’s own best interest.” I suggested once that Barack Obama is naive when it comes to the American free enterprise system, but let’s just scratch that. The man really is trying to dismantle it and remake it in his own image — that of a law | Read More »
One more thought about Obama’s new nuclear policy
Doesn’t this new nuke policy, which puts Obama even to the left of Carter, just mean every regime out there is going to be rushing out to weaponize small pox? After all, if they can take out a million of us with a bug or chemical instead of investing all the time, talent, and treasure into a nuclear weapons infrastructure *AND* they won’t in turn | Read More »
Obama’s Dangerous Game Continues
I have asked the question before. I asked it again. Again. And again. How many Americans are going to die because of the Obama administration’s incompetent handling of our national security? Contrary to the Washington Post’s headline this morning, Obama’s new nuclear policy strategy is no “middle way,” it is capitulation and waving a white flag for our enemies, putting him not in the middle | Read More »
The Dead Cat Bounce
Looking at Instapundit, I would note Barack Obama has had a dead cat bounce in the polls. Sure he went up a bit after the health care vote, but the numbers fell again. The Democrats had hoped for increased momentum after the vote. They aren’t going to get it. The Politico reports Obama intends to pursue expanded socialist policies including destroying the financial sector, destroying | Read More »
If King George Will Not Listen . . .
“Acts of violence against congressmen for behaving as congressmen are wholly inexcusable. . . . But let’s not act surprised.” This is one of those posts that has to be written and has to be said, though I know going in to it I’m going to get beaten up from all sides, though especially from a left particularly out to get me right now. Nonetheless, | Read More »
Should Barack Obama Suffer With the Rest of Us?
Ben Domenech has more on Chuck Grassley’s quest to have Barack Obama be part of Obamacare. As Ben noted and I told you about yesterday, Democrats exempted senior Democrat leaders and their staffs from Obamacare. It’s like a scene out of Animal Farm. Well, it turns out that Grassley is not done fighting this and intends to push the issue during reconciliation. Ben has the | Read More »
Ensuring Barack Obama’s Second Term
Barack Obama is telling Democrats that to ensure the success of his presidency, they must vote to pass health care deform. It is, after all, all about him despite his protests to the contrary. This argument persuaded Dennis Kucinich — well that and there are allegations about a job for his wife though I’m not sure if that’s true. But given the pattern it is | Read More »
Barack Obama Tacitly Acknowledges He is Now a Pariah and the Democrats Are Screwed in 2010
“Barack Obama is now a social pariah and most Democrats and he knows it.” Here’s a dirty little secret in American politics. A lot of the reporters who cover politics don’t know the first thing about politics. They cannot read the tea leaves. They do not know how. They do not even try. That is why men like Larry Sabato, Chuck Todd, etc. have become | Read More »
Rahm Emanuel Is Dead. He Just Hasn’t Been Told Yet.
Streiff noted earlier David Broder beating down Dana Milbank over Milbank’s Rahm Emanuel stories. Broder believes that Emanuel is not the source for Milbank, but it is abundantly clear Rahm Emanuel either directly or indirectly is trying to cover his bottom as the Obama administration crumbles. It started mid-February with a hagiographic tale of woe in the Obama administration and how Rahm Emanuel is the | Read More »
Democrats Filibuster the Listening Session
Barack Obama said it would be a listening session for him, but the entire time leading up to it, Obama and the Democrats already plotted to ignore the Republicans. CNN now has data showing just what a grand kabuki dance of non-listening the alleged summit was. Democrats dominated the talk. Of course, Captain Bullcrap said the time limits did not apply to him, just to | Read More »
The Sham Wow Summit
There are many reasons the Republican Party is often referred to as the Stupid Party. Many Republicans thought that after the President overshadowed the GOP at their Baltimore retreat last month, going to Blair House yesterday would just be another PR disaster. It was anything but. The GOP won the day so convincingly that even the traditional media had to praise the party for talking | Read More »
In Summation on the Health Care Plan
The Daily Caller has a great summation of what is in Barack Obama’s plan. “The Obama plan costs a trillion dollars, puts government in control of personal health decisions, and allows the government to set prices in the private market,” said Cantor spokesman Brad Dayspring. “That mirrors the Pelosi/Reid plans that have already been soundly rejected by the bipartisan majority of Americans.” Humorously, Obama is | Read More »
Why the jobs aren’t coming back
The Politico has an interesting story about Toyota up. It seems the company does not much care for this administration. Internal Toyota documents derided the Obama administration and Democratic Congress as “activist” and “not industry friendly,” a revelation that comes days before the giant automaker’s top executives testify on Capitol Hill amid a giant recall. It is not, however, just Toyota. Lots of businesses and | Read More »
But Al Capone Wound Up in Jail and Died of Syphilis
Roland Martin is giving voice to millions of frustrated Democrats who see Barack Obama has a larger Senate majority than George W. Bush ever had, in fact the largest majority in decades, and has not been half as effective at using it as Bush was with his majority. The difference, of course, is that Bush was largely pushing popular items like tax cuts and necessary | Read More »
