I want to give special mention this morning at both the top of the Morning Briefing and the top of RedState to the Washington Examiner. Often, conservatives complain that Barack Obama has not been vetted. Honestly, he hasn’t really been vetted. We do not know a lot about Barack Obama from his time before the United States Senate. Much of what we could learn has | Read More »
Some Things Never Change: More Teamsters Arrested & Charged Under RICO
Earlier this week, arrests were made and RICO charges filed against four Boston-area Teamsters for “committing multiple acts of extortion and racketeering among other crimes.” While news of a 30-count indictment always generates a fair amount of buzz, the fact is, regardless how much money the Teamsters spend on Democrat politicians, corruption is still alive and well within Hoffa’s union. In 1988, the U.S. Department | Read More »
GAO: The Federal Government Runs 160 Housing Programs
A new GAO report reveals the federal government runs 160 housing programs. The challenge to a Romney presidency will not be to make these programs run efficiently but rather to divest the federal government of these programs altogether.

Obama’s seven point lead up in smoke
Gallup’s Presidential Election tracking poll for September 5-11 had President Obama leading Governor Romney by seven points 50% to 43%. Now the Gallup tracking poll shows that Obama’s seven point lead has gone up in the smoke from burning U.S. embassies. For the last two days Obama only leads Romney by a single point. That is why the biased media wing of the Democrats’ party | Read More »
Today the Media Will Probably Blame Bush
Last night Fox News broke the story that the mastermind of the attack in Libya had been released from GTMO in 2007 during the reign of George Chimpy McBushitler Halliburton and his evil Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, also known as Barack Obama’s Secretary of Defense Robert Gates. But wait . . . there’s more. The United States had advance warning of the attack and | Read More »
Breaking: DOJ’s Inspector General’s office insulates Attorney General Holder from Operation Fast & Furious.
Executive summary: the Inspector General for the Department of Justice did an independent – no, let’s be honest; it was an “internal” – investigation into the horrifically botched multi-agency program known as Operation Fast & Furious (OF&F). For those who don’t remember, OF&F was that program where we let Mexican drug gangs illegally buy guns, didn’t keep track of the guns, and pretty much watched | Read More »
The 47 Percent
Copious pages of commentary have been poured over the kerfuffle surrounding Romney’s newly-discovered comments regarding the 47% who don’t pay taxes and inexorably vote for Democrats. It’s important to note that Mother Jones malevolently edited out two minutes of the video right at the time Romney made the “47 percent” comment. There are a few points that I believe have been overlooked throughout this | Read More »

Today Glenn Kessler receives his second award of the prestigious Quad Heady for debunking an argument Mitt Romney did not make and then awarding him three “pinocchios” for the lie Kessler put in his mouth.
Mitt Romney’s Remarks are Another Chick-Fil-A Moment
Just a few months ago, Dan Cathy of Chick-Fil-A, gave an interview to a Christian publication that asked him about the Chick-Fil-A Foundation’s support of marriage. Cathy defending his position and spoke about his family’s faith. CNN.com picked it up and ran a story that Cathy had come out against gay marriage. In fact, Cathy hadn’t been asked directly about gay marriage, but it was | Read More »
Treat the Press as Enemy Collaborators
“So how do you feel about your new position with Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL)?” asked Media Bistro of Jonathan Allen. “Certainly excited. I’m happy to go to work for someone who inspires me and who I admire. I’m hopeful I can advance the Democratic Party’s goals and obviously, the congresswoman’s goals,” Jonathan Allen replied. Jonathan Allen is now the Politico’s senior Washington correspondent. This | Read More »
Mitt Romney, Friend in Need
The Obama campaign has spent months laboring to get this election to be about anything but the president’s record and the candidates’ policy proposals. As often happens in campaigns, this requires painting caricatures with no connection to the facts. The Obama camp has worked hard to make Mitt Romney out as a bad, unfeeling, cold-hearted rich guy who only cares about his own bottom line. | Read More »
Foreign Media: US Foreign Policy under Obama in Ruins
For all the talk of how amazing and respected Barack Obama is in international circles, foreign media outlets fairly often end up doing the kind of reporting one might hope the American media would do on him. Yes, while the American media was busy manufacturing outrage over a Romney statement that was essentially right, foreign outlets were doing real reporting. I’ll start off with the German magazine Der Spiegel, which | Read More »
What A Tangled Web We Weave. The Administration’s Benghazi Story Unravels.
As the Administration struggles to pin the foreseeable outcome of our bonkers Middle East policy, the sacking of two diplomatic missions and the slaughter of at least four diplomatic personnel, on a YouTube video, the truth begins to trickle out. The first substantial fissure appears today. An intelligence source backs up the claim of a wounded Libyan security guard that there was no demonstration prior | Read More »
If The Election Were Held Today Barack Obama Would Win
Contra Dick Morris, Mitt Romney is not winning this election. At least Mitt Romney is not winning the election right now. Conservatives are obsessing over every poll, the turn out models used, and the media bias that is on ful display. Yes, some of the polling models seem screwy, though we all forget the pollsters apply a secret sauce known only to them on top. | Read More »
John Kerry Is An Ignoramus. But You Knew That.
John Kerry goes to the pages of Foreign Policy magazine to claim that Democrat foreign policy is, counter to all evidence, not a disaster but represents a new Age of Aquarius. In fact, Obama’s foreign policy has been an unmitigated disaster: gains in Iraq have been tossed away, Afghanistan has been abandoned, Israel is on the verge of striking Iran, China is attempting to achieve hegemony over the South China Sea. All because of the weakness and fatuousness of this administration.
