Is GM’s “Success” Fueled by Subprime Loans?
In his struggles to find something positive about his time as President (that doesn’t have to do with Osama bin Laden), and to justify the massive bailout of the auto companies that happened under his watch, President Obama has begun touting GM’s supposed turnaround as a success for his administration. However, there’s more to the story than what he wants to tell us. At least | Read More »
Quote for the Day: Illegal Immigration Edition
Just some food for thought in light of Obama’s recent decision to circumvent Congress and grant amnesty to illegal aliens under the age of 30. The quote is long but I do think it’s worth posting: I do not remember one single instance in 30 years where the Immigration service has removed strikebreakers to the extent the workers were helped and the illegal alien workers were removed.

Taking a Second Look at those #WIRecall Exit Polls–And Other Things
Promoted from the diaries by Jeff In their frantic attempt to glean something positive from last night’s shellacking in Wisconsin, we found the Obama campaign clinging (bitterly?) to the results of the exit polls. According to them, Obama was still beating Romney 51-45% in the state. Unfortunately, for them at least, they don’t even get this satisfaction anymore.

Dan Benishek for Congress in MI-1
As the hours have passed today, it has become clear that Bart Stupak intends to sell his soul to Obamacare . As the leader of the pro-life Democrats in Congress, he held the fate of healthcare reform (and I used that word in the loosest possible sense) in his hands. Unfortunately, but probably unsurprisingly, he has chosen poorly, and he has sold America out to | Read More »
Obama and Bush: A Simple Comparison of Pictures
H/T to this tweet by Ben Domenech for alerting me to it. A while back I did a post on the “Beer Summit” highlighting Obama’s lack of concern for those around him. The picture from Ben Domenech’s tweet reminded me of that. Take a look at it: The man comforting the child is Harold Ford, a man who unsuccessfully sought Bill Frist’s old Senate seat | Read More »
A Possible 52 Senate Seats for Republicans in 2010?
As this piece by the American Thinker points out, it’s entirely possible that the Republicans could have 52 votes in the Senate come 2010. That’s a gain of 11 seats, added on to the 41 we now have since Brown won. Good quote: Moreover, [Dan] Coats’s decision to run this year [for Evan Bayh's seat] is an example of the great vulnerability that Democrats face | Read More »
Sen. Baucus: Never mind the Republicans! Here’s our Healthcare Bill!
Some of you may remember a few days back how Senator Max Baucus (D-MT) had said that he was willing to introduce a bipartisan healthcare bill to Senate, but if he couldn’t assemble such a coalition he was willing to go it alone with just the Democrats. Well, guess what? He did: Sen. Max Baucus’ decision to release his long-awaited health care overhaul bill with | Read More »
Charles Krauthammer Proposes a Reasonable Way to Start Healthcare Reform
He’s already written a superb couple of columns about why Obamacare is sinking and why Obama is retreating from it. Now, he’s got a couple of novel ideas on how we can begin the reform of our healthcare system. He gives us these in his latest piece at the Washington Post.
