Barack Obama’s Border Funding Plan is a Bad Idea
Barack Obama has flown to Texas to fundraise. He won’t actually go visit the border. But he did come up with a $3.7 billion plan to deal with what’s happening. Senator Tom Coburn is voicing his opposition. The GOP would be wise to listen to Senator Coburn. As he noted last night on Crossfire, “That’s $60,000 per child we will spend, in emergency money.” He | Read More »
Rep. Tom Cole Has a Sad
Congressman Tom Cole (R-OK HAFA Score 49%) is upset with me1. He voted to give Barack Obama a blank check to raise the debt ceiling into 2015 and voted to fund Obamacare, but he wants America to know that the Republicans are fighting Barack Obama. He went to Barack Obama’s own network, MSNBC, this morning to tell Chuck Todd that I, your editor, am profiting | Read More »
Two More Things About John Boehner’s Lawsuit
It’s worth noting two more things about John Boehner’s opinion piece at CNN regarding his pending lawsuit. He writes: in my view, the President has not faithfully executed the laws when it comes to a range of issues, including his health care law, energy regulations, foreign policy and education. Note that he does not mention immigration. Second, I don’t hold it against him that what | Read More »
No, an Obama Presidential Library / outhouse float is not racist. …*Duh*.
Sometimes, the Left’s soft bigotry of lowered expectations isn’t actually all that soft.

The House GOP Should Man Up Instead of Resorting to Political Theater in the Courts
John Boehner and the House Republicans may lack the testicular fortitude to fight President Obama, but I would kindly ask that he save the taxpayers further money on a political stunt “John Boehner and the House Republicans may lack the testicular fortitude to fight President Obama, but I would kindly ask that he save the taxpayers further money on a political stunt ”John Boehner and | Read More »
Obama loveth not the truth
It’s one thing to have Internet memes fly around Facebook promoting lies like the Hobby Lobby ruling allows employers to prevent women from accessing birth control methods.
It’s quite a different thing when the President of the United States knowingly promotes that lie.

White House debating whether to ally with… God help us… Syria.
You have got to be… kidding me. There’s a battle raging inside the Obama administration about whether the United States ought to push away from its goal of toppling Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and into a de facto alliance with the Damascus regime to fight ISIS and other Sunni extremists in the region. As President Obama slowly but surely increases the U.S. military presence on the ground | Read More »
Obama offers electoral advice to the GOP
One of the great psychological benefits bestowed upon sociopaths is their inability to accept responsibility for their own actions. Every failure is because of the treachery, ineptitude, or incompetence of other. I wrote about that recently in a post titled Obama blames GOP for his failed presidency. His idea of cooperation is the GOP doing what he wants. It never crosses his mind that most | Read More »
Obama is the worst President since World War II
That legacy thing isn’t working out so good for President Obama. A new Quinnipiac poll finds that voters now say Obama is the worst president since World War II. Obama is less popular than President George W. Bush. Voters, by a 45 to 38 percent margin, say the country would be better off if Mitt Romney had won the 2012 presidential election. Ronald Reagan is considered the | Read More »
Obama assails GOP on immigration and says he’ll go it alone
John Boehner seems to have abandoned the plan that we heard so much about earlier in the year, i.e. waiting until after the primary season to push the noxious Senate comprehensive immigration reform law, and decided that the GOP base is simply not in the mood to move such a monumental bill under a president who is so disdainful of the law of the land. | Read More »
Random Observations on Government
Ronald Reagan was the most conservative president in the last 75 years. Despite interest rates of 20% when he took office, during the first 5 years of his presidency the economy grew by a total of 17.7%. Barack Obama is the most progressive president in American history. Despite interest rates close to zero throughout his terms, during the first 5 years of his presidency the | Read More »

Why Barack Obama won’t just unilaterally fund access to abortifacients.
If the administration decided to fund procedures that an extremely large swath of the population considers to be abortifacients then they’d be in for several more exquisitely painful months in the public disapproval barrel.

Russia sends aircraft and trainers to Iraq
Nature, it is said, abhors a vacuum. The aphorism applies as equally to politics as it does to science. Back in 2011, the New Yorker had this insightful article on Obama’s disinterested foreign policy: Nonetheless, Obama may be moving toward something resembling a doctrine. One of his advisers described the President’s actions in Libya as “leading from behind.” That’s not a slogan designed for signs | Read More »
Obama’s excellent YOLO presidency continues
In a rather stunning interview with Bill Clinton political strategist and totally unbiased newsman, George Stephanopoulous, Barack Obama revealed that it is the World Cup, not events, driving his foreign policy agenda: On his way to Minnesota today, President Obama took a break from his day job to watch one of the most anticipated World Cup matches so far — the U.S. vs. Germany — | Read More »
I Agree With Obama
Except, Obama’s probably in on it too. I don’t have any doubt that these two, along with any number cast of characters, sit down together frequently and try to devise plans to dupe the American public. This Boehner lawsuit is a perfect example of probable collusion between the President and the Speaker of the House. Think about it. The President faces zero negative fallout from | Read More »
