Obama: excuses rather than responsibility for his failed policies
“I’m not gonna make any excuses.” — Barack Obama The good folks at the RNC have released a video highlighting President Obama’s penchant for offering excuse after excuse rather take responsibility for his policy failures. Watch the “From ‘Hope’ to Hypocrisy: Excuses, Excuses” video: This is one more example of Obama saying one thing while doing another or trying to have things both ways. He | Read More »
Romney takes an early lead
Romney takes an early lead over President Obama. The FOX News poll released Friday, Romney leads Obama 46% to 44%. The Rasmussen Reports 2012 Daily Presidential Matchup Tracking poll has Romney leading Obama 48% to 43%. After Santorum suspended his presidential campaign on Monday, the Tuesday Rasmussen Matchup poll had Romney and Obama tied at 45% each. It remained tied through Wednesday. The Democrats’ war | Read More »
Tech at Night: CISPA is not SOPA until proven otherwise, Cybersecurity and copyright battles rage on
I’m seeing some real panicked shouting online about CISPA, a new bill that some are calling “the new SOPA.” It’s absurd. The bill may not be perfect. It could have flaws. But the argument being hammered against CISPA again and again is that it may be used against copyright infringers who abuse networks. So? The only reason to oppose that is if you wish to | Read More »

Barack Obama: STILL not paying women as much as men?
Via @mkhammer comes this latest example of Do As I Say, Not As I Line-Item Budget from the Obama administration. Executive summary: the Obama administration is allegedly paying its female staffers roughly 18% less than its male ones. I’m using the term ‘allegedly’ because the original report did not separate out staffers by gender, forcing “some assumptions to be made based on the employee names” | Read More »
The Buffett Rule Obfuscates the Real Debt Crisis
Over the past few weeks, Obama has exhibited the intensity of a Navy SEAL in his execution of class warfare. He is trying to convince everyone that those who earn 17% of Adjusted Gross Income, yet pay 36.7% of federal income taxes don’t pay anything, while those who pay little or no taxes shoulder the entire tax burden. Obama will continue to toss out misinformation | Read More »
Interesting: epithet-tossing Jewish liaison Dani Gilbert daughter of Obama bundlers.
Via Legal Insurrection comes this interesting story about DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her rather embarrassing Jewish liaison Dani Gilbert. As you may remember, Ms. Gilbert had some unfortunate comments surface from her Facebook page – essentially, stuff from 2006 where she used admittedly self-derogatory religious/cultural epithets. At the time, I wondered when exactly DWS had hired the young woman – just on the | Read More »
Katie Pavlich Takes on Fast and Furious
Our sister company Regnery Publishing (we’re both owned by Eagle Publishing, Inc.) sent me a new book to read. I am really bad these days about not reading all the books I get in — sometimes up to a dozen a week from various publishers and authors. But this one caught my eye. Katie Pavlich, Townhall’s News Editor, has a book out entitled Fast And | Read More »
Is This A Subtle Bias At Reuters?
In a story about the White House in damage control mode over the President’s rather stupid remarks on the Supreme Court, Reuters reports the following: “What he did was make an unremarkable observation about 80 years of Supreme Court history,” Carney told reporters during a White House briefing dominated by the topic. and The president, who taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago, qualified | Read More »
Maybe Paul Ryan Should Have Called It a Trojan Condom Budget
Barack Obama spoke to the American press yesterday to demagogue Republicans, Paul Ryan’s budget, cite Ronald Reagan as proof that raising taxes is okay, and damn with faint praise American exceptionalism. The President called Paul Ryan’s budget a “trojan horse.” Given the President’s predilection for forcing all Americans, through regulatory fiat, to adhere to his view of contraception, I suspect that had Paul Ryan preemptively | Read More »
The Emperor Needs A New Diaper
I like and appreciate both Moe Lane and Leon Wolf. I’ve been rewarded vastly beyond my limited abilities getting to front page on this blog with them both. However, they’ve each made a serious error in judgment this week which I’ll hopefully rectify in today’s issue of Repair_Man_Jack. Leon and Moe have both weighed in on Admiral Obama’s reckless sortie athwart the iniquitous US Supreme | Read More »
Constitutional Law 090 for President Obama: The Federalist Papers (#78).
You probably remember yesterday’s post by RedState’s Leon Wolf about how the President’s bizarre commentary on the Supreme Court (essentially, Barack Obama seems to think that constitutionality is in the eye of the supine legislature whose members promptly got decimated in the next Congressional election) demonstrates pretty much an explicit disdain for, and rejection of, the very doctrine of judicial review. Leon finished by saying | Read More »
Testing the Media’s Testicular Fortitude
According to America’s top Constitutional Law Professor turned President of the United States, the Supreme Court should not overturn “a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected congress.” What about the people, acting through the democratic process, to amend their own constitution? I ask because in California, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled it unconstitutional for the people | Read More »
NYT’s Richard Thaler savagely attacks Barack Obama.
I know, I’m as shocked as you are: but that’s what happened. You see, Richard Thaler was trying to push back on the entire steadily-rising gas price thing (four bucks a gallon, if you’re lucky), and so in an op-ed today for the New York Times Thaler authoritatively declared: Here is a one-item test to see whether you are guilty of cloudy thinking about gas | Read More »
The “Don’t You Love The Citizens United Case?” Friday Open Thread.
I mean, I personally love the Citizens United case. Aside from liking free speech, it seems to be a positive spur to creativity. Check out this latest spy spoof from American Crossroads, with Barack Obama starring as the almost-urbane secret agent trying to fumble-finger the rest of us into giving up our missile defense plans: For the record: no, really, Vladimir Putin really does go | Read More »
Obama sells out American values and interests in Russia
I applaud House Speaker John Boehner for his letter to President Barack Obama on Russia. I also applaud him for holding fire on Obama while he was abroad at an important security summit. It much more clearly articulated Obama’s shocking behavior with respect to Russia than any other criticism to date: The Russian government has not lived up to its obligations to support the world | Read More »
