Twenty Inconvenient Years for the Left’s Media Spin on Obamacare
The year was 1990. Then Senator Joseph R. Biden, Jr. of Delaware and Senator Strom Thurmond of South Carolina introduced S. 3266, the Crime Control Act of 1990. The law, introduced on October 27, 1990, sailed through Congress in one day. It passed the Senate by unanimous consent before 5 o’clock that evening. At 11:56 p.m. the House of Representatives approved it by 313-1. It | Read More »
Tech at Night: Obama’s FCC transparency failure, video regulatory failure, Google censorship
Instead of the transparent Obama administration we were promised, from the Obama FCC, what we have here is failure to communicate. We need to continue to cut the FCC out of the loop, the old regulations are harmful when it comes to retransmission consent and the whole cable company/local broadcaster nexus. Clear it out, deregulate, restore the free market, and the public will benefit.

Energy Policy *IS* Grassroots Politics
Compare and contrast these maps. First, the “undervote” by county in the recent Pennsylvania Democratic Presidential primary. The numbers in each county represent the proportion of voters in a Democratic primary who selected “no candidate” rather than vote for the incumbent, Barack Obama. Now, the distribution map of the Marcellus Shale:
Obama for America showing no signs of getting the point about 2012.
These three quotes seem to pretty much sum up Team Obama’s wonderful, wonderful attitude towards this election: The campaign has an almost mystical confidence in sophisticated technology and in its organization, assets that only matter in a razor-tight race. Further, these other strategists say, the Obama camp is no more justified in its belief that this campaign is like a rerun — with the uniforms | Read More »
Our Choice in November: The Flipper Vs. the Flopper
Last week ended with a big bang as Obama announced that he would no longer enforce our immigration laws and deport many of those who came here illegally. What about the fact that Congress never vitiated those laws and, in fact, actually rejected the Dream Act? That’s just a minor problem for a man who thinks he can make laws without Congress. But did Obama | Read More »
We’ve Reached the Penultimate Jimmy Carter Moment of the Obama Presidency
Chris Cillizza made me laugh out loud last evening when I read his column, which opens with a question: “Is it possible for a president — any president — to succeed in the modern world of politics?” There is nothing new under the sun, including this question. On January 19, 2010, I wrote about the ungovernability of the American Republic. At that time, Barack Obama | Read More »
Congratulations to President Obama on his 100th round of golf
Today, President Obama completed his 100th (documented) round of golf. In celebration of this milestone, Duane Lester of All American Blogger made the following video: Obama is working hard, at least at playing golf. In less than three-and-a-half years he has played 100 rounds of golf. Just nine months into the Obama presidency the New York Post reported that Obama surpassed former President George W. | Read More »
Politico: President Obama’s passive aggressive immigration policy.
No, really, that’s how it was put: President Barack Obama returned Friday to a trusted tactic — satisfying his political allies by not doing something. Conservatives were angry when Janet Napolitano announced the administration would stop deporting certain undocumented immigrants, but they should have seen it coming. On issue after issue — gay rights, drug enforcement, Internet gambling, school achievement standards — the administration has | Read More »
Tech at Night: Obama administration shuffles papers, Bad guys get rolled up
When I read the President’s Executive Order Accelerating Broadband Infrastructure Deployment, I’m reminded of the scene in Spaceballs when Dark Helmet tells the crew of Spaceball One “What are you preparing? You’re always preparing. Just go!” For the Obama administration to spend a year preparing whether or not to address a list of reforms, instead of just doing them, suggests to me the administration simply | Read More »
Obama’s “Are You Better Off Now” Problem
Download Podcast | iTunes | Podcast Feed On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Aaron Blake to discuss Obama’s failed speech in Ohio yesterday, whether or not he can overcome the “are you better off now than you were four years ago” questions, and the role Super PACs this election cycle. We’re brought to you as always by Stephen Clouse | Read More »
Obama Seeks to Nullify our Immigration Laws
King Barack Hussein Kardashian Obama thinks that he gets to invent laws where they don’t exists and disregard the ones that are already on the books. In yet another demonstration of contempt for the rule of law and the separation of powers, the Obama administration has announced that it will no longer enforce our immigration laws (not that he’s been enforcing them until now). The | Read More »
American Crossroads translates Obama’s Ohio speech!
I managed to hold out until :38… …but “Vote for me, or you’ll probably die” was just too much funny, in one place. This is turning out to be a great election cycle. Well, it’s great for me, and it looks like that it’s great for American Crossroads. Democratic groups that are perhaps not used to being on the receiving end of well-made mockery? Possibly | Read More »
The new C-SPAN video library feature (also: Obama thinks that we’re in recession!).
One of the things that I did as part of attending the Breitbart Awards last weekend was attend a panel on C-Span’s new video library service. It’s actually pretty useful: it allows you to take clips from C-SPAN and email them, Tweet them, embed them and whatnot. For example: say you wanted to show a clip from today’s disastrous Ohio speech that Obama made. What | Read More »
Team Romney’s first ad using Obama’s Ohio speech.
The first of many from the Romney campaign: I myself counted enough raw footage from today’s Ohio speech to make a dozen Republican attack ads. I don’t know who the heck told the President that it was a good idea to make a speech that tacitly conceded failure for the last four years, and half-demanded, half-begged for another four years in office. Particularly since in | Read More »
1994′s Axelron versus 2012′s Axelrod!
As you probably read yesterday or today, video has surfaced from 1994 showing a David ‘Axelron’ (clearly the Nega-universe alternate conservative doppelganger of Obama henchman David Axelrod*) commenting disapprovingly about a President who… airily played golf in the middle of a sour economic patch while telling people that things were going swimmingly. I just couldn’t resist cutting this one down to size and highlighting some | Read More »
