And Even STILL I Am Not Allowed To Make A Racial Slur About Our President? After THIS? AYFKM!?!?!?
I almost don’t have words…almost: He said Republicans had driven the economy into a ditch and then stood by and criticized while Democrats pulled it out. Now that progress has been made, he said, “we can’t have special interests sitting shotgun. We gotta have middle class families up in front. We don’t mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they | Read More »
Peggy Noonan Heads Home
I have a love – hate relationship with Peggy Noonan…there-it’s out now. During the early to middle Bush years we were like peas and carrots, Peggy and I. Mid to late years, and her anti-Iraq equivocation and left-lurches to the dark side? Not so much. Early Obama? Nope…not at all; she was chillin’ in Berkely, and I was driving around in circles on my red | Read More »
Counting The Deaths On Commander-in-Chief Obama’s Impotent Hands
I have been watching iCasualties.Org daily for the past 5 weeks. This is not a morbid curiosity; I have done this because I noticed back then that June 2010 was the worst month for US casualties of any so far in the Afghanistan war…ANY point during the 9 years we’ve been fighting it. I noticed, upon further investigation, that the numbers were on pace to | Read More »
The Curious Case Of Barack Obama’s Fading Presidency
Even before I saw this Politico piece I was planning to point out how odd it is that Obama keeps picking the wrong side of all the major issues of the day. Seventy percent favor Arizona’s immigration law so Obama calls in the DOJ dogs to take the State to Court. Sixty percent favor repeal of healthcare reform so Obama takes a victory lap around | Read More »
For Viagra, For Union Bailouts, “And For Other Purposes”
H.R.1586 began its life as an “ACT To impose an additional tax on bonuses received from certain TARP recipients.” My oh my, has she come a long way since 2009. Now, she is the FAA Air Transportation Modernization and Safety Improvement Act, and carries with her $26.1 BILLION dollars in Teacher bailouts (and for other purposes). By a vote just completed in the House (247 | Read More »
Running Against Presidents: Obama Concedes 2010 To The GOP
[update-I just saw this LA Times piece which actually explains why the Dems aren't running on their record of accomplishments...heh] There’s no other conclusion to draw. President Obama, on the heels of so many historic legislative accomplishments, continues instead with his strategy of hoping to inspire the Democrat base with the energy and verve he thinks they’ll derive from the steady drumbeat of hammering on | Read More »
Can We Dispense, Now, With The Myth That They Feel Our Pain?
[img via Moonbattery] Honestly, I don’t care about the frequency with which our King and his Queen vacation from the tough grind of their having to talk out of both sides of their mouths. And I’ve long since grown accustomed to taking a shiv in the back at the 4th rib from the Monarchy on a fairly routine basis. And I’m fine with them going | Read More »
SB. 1070′s Stay Of Execution
I know there is a great deal of anger and frustration out there… amongst the 70% of you who are racists that believe immigration laws should be enforced… about Federal Judge Susan Bolton’s willingness to be bought by Obama and the Holder DoJ, but all I can do is laugh…and I mean gut-wrenching, jiggly mid-section guffaw. Seriously…relax people, get some popcorn and consider the pretzel | Read More »
Further Relegating The Constitution To Irrelevance One State Law At A Time
On reliable authority (from those much smarter than I) I’m told that this notion of abandoning the traditions of the Electoral College is well within the rights of the “some several States” as afforded them in the 12th Amendment to the US Constitution and that sending Electors from each of these “some several States” with specific instructions to cast their ballot for the person with | Read More »
It’s Not Too Much To Ask…It’s Just Too Much To Give
[h/t Drudge] Tag teaming on James’ way excellent piece on Rangel I thought I’d pigpile with a walk down Nancy’s memory lane as she did the snoopy dance on election night in ’06, basking in the glow of victory: “The American people voted to restore integrity and honesty in Washington, D.C., and the Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open and most ethical | 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 »
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 »
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 »
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 »
We’ll Make *You* Pay For What *We* Own That We Have *No* Clue About Solving
So suggests the morons running our Country right now, at least: Responding to the massive BP oil spill, Congress is getting ready to quadruple—to 32 cents a barrel—a tax on oil used to help finance cleanups. The increase would raise nearly $11 billion over the next decade. The tax is levied on oil produced in the U.S. or imported from foreign countries. The revenue goes | Read More »
Obama Can Only Go On Being President If He Ensures No More…
[image via NY Magazine] Of the many and varied examples of outlandishness from our President, Obama’s recent assertion that he will allow Gulf drilling only if [we are ensured of] no more spills cannot go unmocked. In a private email exchange, I was offered this observation: Let’s shut down coal operations until we can tell the American people that the recent tragic loss of 26 | Read More »
