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 »
Unintended consequences? Could Roberts have finally moved Kennedy firmly into the conservative block on SCOTUS?
Disclaimer: I am NOT a lawyer. And unlike Obama, I make no pretense at being a constitutional scholar. And I have never, ever stayed at a Holiday Inn Express. After reading and listening to several superb conservative commentaries on the Court decision on Obamacare, it seems to be a consensus that the four dissenting Justices ( Alito, Kennedy, Scalia, and Thomas) all but excoriated Roberts | Read More »
Deconstructing Roberts: He just found “penumbras” and emanations in the ACA
Last night, I watched the estimable Charles Krauthammer, (whom I greatly admire) tie himself in knots, in front of millions, attempting to understand just what the heck Roberts was doing in his vote, and opinion, to uphold Obamacare. In the end, Krauthammer failed. He was unable to justify, let alone explain, what Roberts did, or why. But it’s obvious. As one who views himself as | Read More »
Will ANY House Democrat vote to hold Holder in contempt next week?
After yesterday’s committee vote ( strictly along party lines) to recommend a contempt citation against AG Holder to the full House, and Obama’s last second decision to play the “executive privilege” card; it appears all but certain that the House will vote this coming Wednesday to hold AG Holder in contempt of Congress. Given that already three Democrat House members have publicly announced that they | Read More »
Thinking the “impossible”: what if Obama refused to obey a Supreme Court decision that completely tosses out Obamacare?
The first time you say it, the tendency is to laugh, and say, no way, couldn’t happen, they wouldn’t dare. After the second or third time the mind begins to come to grips with the possibility that they just might try it. Conservatives have long known that for the left, our deeply held conviction that the US must, above everything else, be a nation of | Read More »
Why Mitch McConnell is utterly useless, and why it is imperative that DeMint run against him for MAJORITY Leader
I know that Sen DeMint often posts on Red State, so one can assume that his staff regularly peruses this site, so consider this one man’s wish that the good senator sees this, and hopefully gets the message. Tonight, as is my usual habit, I’m watching “Special Report”. and the opening segment is about the impact of the Wisconsin recall results on the national election picture. They’re | Read More »
