The Disingenuousness Of Democrats, Debbie Stabenow Edition
I can’t create a video clip from C-Span, so all I have is this screen cap…and a link to a shortened segment of the utter nonsense that erupted from her mouth today on the Senate floor. Stabenow, in complaining about the GOP making her wait the 30 hours granted under Senate rules before a vote on the bill to extend unemployment benefits, stated for the | Read More »
There Is No Military Solution
[image via Pat Dollard] There are so many troubling aspects to this story that picking the right place to start is terribly difficult. On the one hand, having to confront the very real possibility that the Obama Administration is now prepared to negotiate with the Taliban (and it’s of little consequence whether there will be direct or indirect talks), Americans are being asked to let | Read More »
Rob Portman (OH Senate Cand, R), At Least, Believes In The Constitution
Rob Portman is running for US Senate in Ohio against Lt. Governor Lee Fisher. I thought this race was worth mentioning just now, at a time when our otherwise solid partners in the fight to defend the 2nd Amendment have gone squishy, because there are more gun rights groups out there than just the NRA. Opportunists though they have proven themselves to BE of late, | Read More »
The Art Of Self-Amelioration: Obama And The Party Of Lose
[image via TribeWithTed] I had a little fun recently with Obama’s Saturday Radio Address, during which he suggested Republicans actually WANT people to suffer in order to gain a political edge. That the Democrats have made this approach to governance a cornerstone of their success should not be lost on anyone here; Democrats get elected when they have more handouts to promise to potential voters | Read More »
Republicans “Make Their Stand On The Backs Of The Unemployed.” Really??
[base image via Xtra] So sayeth our President, at least. Shortly after George Bush took office, that surplus we keep hearing so much about was rounded down significantly…this is not mentioned in any of Obama’s rhetoric. The internet bubble burst, and the economy tanked…Obama is silent here as well. 9/11, and the costs associated with a call to a war he still wages? Nada. Through | Read More »
NH-1: Guinta Has *Got* To Go
I write about so many races I can’t actually vote in that it’s especially refreshing to come back to this one for a closer look two months running since my original piece on New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District race. Back in late May I did a generic overview of this District in which I outed the flaming liberal Carol Shea-Porter for the “out of touch | Read More »
Don’t Blink-Democrats Aren’t Done Killing Jobs Yet
While the Obama Administration takes its victory lap with the Democrats and their Union buddies over the job-killing Financial Reform bill they just passed, a host of other initiatives that would give special favors to Unions are waiting in the wings for the right time to be brought up for consideration. I say special favors because, unbeknownst to most of us, Unions made out like | Read More »
How’s That Mathematical Friendship With Osama Bin Laden Working Out For You Dr. Shabazz?
I just can’t get my fill of this video in which Dr. whatever his name is Shabazz (National Chairman of the New Black Panther Party) asks his “members” for a round of applause for Osama Bin Laden. You recognize that name, don’t you? Yep-that fuzzy little fluff ball just trying to take care of his people and protect them from the evil people around the | Read More »
NRSC Endorses Castle (R [sorta] Delaware)?
Or so one might think, given this screen cap from a couple days ago. Now, Cornyn and the kids have been known to get a few wrong in the past, to be sure, but really? Throwing up Castle’s picture in the roatating candidates section, given that he’s not even officially on the ballot yet smells terribly of the same self-inflicted doom the NRSC has long-suffered | Read More »
Why Democrats Must Go
You’d think the Democrats would be doing the snoopy dance during this election cycle. They have accomplished so many of the things Obama promised he’d do during the campaign (and his two Chamber Maids, Reid and Pelosi, guaranteed they’d support) so long as Americans elected Democrats to office. We did, and they have accomplished much. Yet, I don’t see a great deal of talk about | Read More »
Sin Tax Schadenfreude
The Reason Foundation published an article back in February ’09 looking at the failed logic of State (and Federal) Government placing such a huge reliance on Tobacco taxes as the means by which they hope to offset some of their budgetary woes in the “lean times.” They likened this broken record of failed tax policy to that of an “old vaudeville troop that can’t let | Read More »
Judged By The Color Of Their Skin And Not By The Content Of Their Character?
[image via FaceFwd] In his “I have a dream speech”, Martin Luther King Jr. said this: I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. In presenting Barack Obama to the Nation as a potential President, we were asked | Read More »
Washington Is Broken, Mr. President. Do Your Job.
[image via ToddBigelowPhotography] Yesterday, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer slammed President Obama in a video ad for his meager (and foolhardy) response to her request for help in securing the Arizona border: “Two weeks ago, I met with President Obama. He promised that we would get word from his Administration on what they were going to do to secure the border. Well, we finally got the | Read More »
There’s Not Much Left To Take Over Now, Mr. President
If WaPo is to be believed, Obama’s takeover of the country is nearly complete… takeover of the private sector by the Federal Bureaucracy, that is. And it’s getting nearly impossible NOT to be cynical, a little bitter, and a LOT disgusted with the way things are going since Bambi took over the reigns from George W. (by God, YES George…we DO miss you) Bush. There’s | Read More »
Castle’s Wet Finger Doesn’t Like The Way The Wind Is Blowing
Mike Castle (R [allegedly]-DE) has been so busy yukkin’ it up with his Democrat stick buddies in the House that he forgot about an eeevil special interest group that he is going to need if he wants to beat Christine O’Donnell in Delaware’s September 14 primary, let alone get elected to the US Senate in November; the NRA. On June 17 Castle and his pal | Read More »
Breaking: McChrystal Out, Petraeus IN
Breitbart reports that Petraeus will replace McChrystal. While the narrative might veer toward suggesting this is MacArthur-esque, the MacArthur here (the pompous, overconfident, know-it-all that won’t listen to his closest advisors) is Commander-In-Chief Barack “I have no clue what I’m doing but I’ll be damned if I’ll allow myself to be criticized by underlings” Obama: A source tells The Associated Press that President Barack Obama | Read More »
Christine O’Donnell [R Cand, US Senate DE]: “Citizen Politician”
[O'Donnell at a Townhall meeting Democrats don't like to attend anymore...apparently] I had the distinct honor and privilege of speaking with Christine O’Donnell to discuss her candidacy and her campaign to fill Joe Biden’s old US Senate seat in Delaware. There will be a Special Election primary on September 14 the winners of which will face off in the General in November. Christine O’Donnell would | Read More »
Rooting For Injuries, Episode #29,365
We’re told the Sestak debacle was no big deal; Bubba just had a little sit-down with him to talk about their futures. We’re being told now that the Romanoff mess was no big deal either. Same for the Massa shower scene with Rahm Emanuel, the Blago “Senate seat for sale” circus that’s underway now in a Chicago court room, the Stupak sellout, the earmarks handed | Read More »
Reckless, Feckless, Relentless Incompetence
[image sources: Treasury Direct and AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais] Via the Washington Times we learn the National Debt has now surpassed the 13 trillion dollar mark. Yeah, I know…yawn…so what. The problem here is that we just watched Congress barely pass a Bill raising the National Debt ceiling to 12.394 TRILLION dollars. Obama, master of everyone else’s checkbook, signed it into law on December 28, | Read More »
Runnin’ Slaves… Killin’ Injuns… Scarin’ Off Illegals… It’s What We *Do* America
We have returned to the days of slave trading and the Trail of Tears according to Patrick Kennedy, (D RI-1) and offspring number three of three from the late Edward M. (Teddy) Kennedy. Kennedy seems to be under the impression that America (the Arizona part of it at least) is violating the spirit of our Constitution by writing a law that enables local enforcement of | Read More »
