He Has Nothing To Say.
To say that President Obama’s speech, marking the retirement of our last combat units from Iraq, was uninspiring… well, it was uninspiring. As usual, he’s taking credit for something that was planned back in the Bush administration. He did acknowledge former President Bush in an offhand sort of way, making it almost an insult. We know Obama doesn’t do ad lib, so it makes you | Read More »
Sixty Three Days!!!
In the five day news cycle of politics, that’s the blink of an eye. Liberals got a good look at the real America when Glenn Beck’s call to God and country caused a mere 600,000 or so of you to pay your own way to travel to Washington DC. I wrote in February 2009 that there was a ‘different’ feel out here… people were visibly, | Read More »
It’s not his Waterloo… that comes later… it’s more like Napoleon’s retreat from Moscow. It’s like Obama is absolutely overwhelmed with the job of the presidency. Nothing in his background, or training, had prepared him for the reality of the biggest job in the world. I think Obama was fascinated by the idea of being president. I don’t think he, or the cabal of leftists | Read More »
That Was The Week That Was #4.
After the excitement of the primaries at the start of the week, it was pretty much back to business-as-usual. The same old rhetoric, blame-shifting and outright lies from the doomed Democrats. Joe Biden The howler of the week was courtesy of none other than Joe Biden, gaffe-master extraordinaire. Stating that the economy recovery was slower than he would like, he insisted that we are headed | Read More »
That Was The Week That Was #3.
The week started with the Drudge Report headline “Mosque Mess Monday”. It was to get more messy as the week progressed, especially for the fragmenting Democrats. The previous Friday, Barack Obama had openly declared, at the White House iftar, that it was a constitutional right to be able to build a mosque. Naturally, this greatly pleased the mostly Muslim dinner guests. When challenged on his | Read More »
Arizona Law Gains Favor.
It looks like Arizona has a lot of serious company out there just now. No fewer than twenty two states are in the process of drafting, or seeking to pass, legislation such as was passed by Arizona. Others are looking at the Arizona law with renewed interest. Representative Debbie Riddle of Texas aims to pass a new immigration law in January. The cash strapped municipalities, | Read More »
War Of The Worlds.
I think Americans are a sadder but wiser lot. We’ve learned as a people what the guy on the street has known forever – if it sounds too good to be true… it is. We also learned to our dismay that votes and voting really mean something. We had fallen into the ‘business as usual’ and ‘I can’t do anything about it’ mentality. It took | Read More »
Obama An Embarrassment.
I don’t think the weak and indecisive Jimmy Carter’s presidency was as far down the road to self destruction as is Obama’s. After all, by his second year, all Jimmy could lay claim to is giving the Panama Canal to the Chinese, among some of his other global ‘peace initiatives’. Carter is, however, a classic example of the liberal mindset. One of the most obvious | Read More »
Obama’s Inner Muslim Seeps Out.
‘Inner Muslim’ is a term which has increasingly been applied with regard to Barack Hussein Obama. His latest exploit into anti-Americanism, by hiding behind ‘religious tolerance’, has drawn justifiable outrage from pretty much across the board, with not a few Democrats very uncomfortable and moving towards the right. Actions have consequences. A consequence of 9/11 is that despite the left’s concerted effort to do a | Read More »
That Was The Week That Was #2.
This week, it seemed that most of America’s (and much of the world’s) press was covering the antics of an airline flight attendant as the main headline story. Not to feel left out, I thought I would mention it. That’s about as far as I’m going with it, a mere mention. There are probably hundreds of people every week that quit their jobs and walk | Read More »
