Barack Obama does the Mother Of All Punchings Down.
The President went after 2016: Obama’s America. Perhaps the president was hoping 2016: Obama’s America would come and go unnoticed like so many other political documentaries. But seven weeks after its opening, the film is still going strong, prompting Barack Obama to finally respond, which he has done through a lengthy entry at his campaign’s website that calls the movie “a deliberate distortion” of his | Read More »
The Definition of Stupid: Another Legislative Surrender
Get ready for another weak ground out into a double play in the upcoming budget battle. Shortly before the August recess, we reported that Republicans planned to pass a clean 6-month CR which funds Obamacare and appropriates $1.047 trillion in spending – commensurate with Obama’s request instead of the House budget. The idea behind the “deferment” strategy was twofold; to delay the major battles to | Read More »
Bill Clinton’s Bounce: How Media Conventional Wisdom Works
Polling is reflecting Bill Clinton’s bounce out of the Democratic National Convention. You wouldn’t know that if you listened to most of the media, but the bounce belonged not to Obama, but to Clinton. Fortunately for the GOP, Barack Obama is no Bill Clinton. It must privately grate on Barack Obama.The media narrative is all about Barack Obama. He’s going to win. He’s ahead. Forget | Read More »
Tech at Night: Anonymous hackers still lie, Obama administration still plans to ignore Congress
Out of control. It seems like only defeating Barack Obama in an election will truly stop this administration. Sure, for now they’ve been scared off of the Internet Tax, but with Net Neutrality and the Cybersecurity Executive Order still brewing, the Obama administration has more power grabs up its sleeves than we should ever have allowed.

Now is the Time to Fight the Welfare President
They’re back! Congress is back in session after the August recess, but they will only be in town for a few weeks. While conservatives are usually happy with the idea of Congress staying out of session, there is much on the agenda we must pursue in order to undo Obama’s destructive policies. We must not squander our time on suspension bills banning the sale of | Read More »
Can The Entitlement Society Destroy America
There are some very serious red flags appearing on the horizon suggesting that all Americans may fall victim to another 4 years under a dictatorship. The Liberal News Media literally controlled by George Soros is determined to put Obama in for another term. The Communists, Marxists and extreme radicals control our Government at this time – Valarie Jarrett(she devil puppet) is the person in charge, | Read More »
Sometimes a Cake Really Is A Cake. Sometimes a Polling Trend Really is Accurate.
The Romney campaign this morning put out a memo telling everyone to calm down, don’t worry, things are fine. Superficially, I agree. Bill Clinton helped Barack Obama more than Mitt Romney helped himself in the past few weeks. But the economic numbers are really not good and things on the horizon appear to be getting worse. Voters will start factoring in those variables in the | Read More »
Obama’s Worship Leader #VetObama
Consider this — Ryan Lizza of the New Yorker wrote a lengthy profile of Michele Bachmann’s religious views and, in the process, got major portions of Bachmann’s theology flat out wrong. She’s Lutheran. He painted her to be part of a fringe cult, in the process misdefining basic theological terms. Then there was Bill Keller of the New York Times. He thinks candidates for President | Read More »
Who needs a muted, irrelevant President?
As conservatives, we know why we don’t want President Barack Obama in the White House. He is leading this country in the wrong direction. But his completely empty convention speech, when combined two moments described in Bob Woodward’s new book, gave us another prong of attack that is potentially much more devastating. He simply is irrelevant now. Nancy Pelosi put him on mute and Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid kicked Obama out of a meeting he called in the White House.
So here’s the argument. President Obama may be bad. But he’s worse than bad. He’s irrelevant. It is time to elect someone with a vision and a capacity to actually solve — or at least contribute to solutions — to today’s problems. Obama’s convention speech, allergic to any specifics, and nothing more than a recitation of progressive goals and values rather than specific policies to get people there, shows that he will continue to be the irrelevant man in the room if re-elected. Who needs a man who brings nothing to the table other than speechifying, no matter how inspiring it may be to some?

Calling The Election Today
Is it just me or does there seem to be some organized spin out over the weekend to call the election for President Obama now? Check out the Politico for the best of these, but everyone is out doing it. Here’s the thing — I have a theory that polling is taking longer to respond to events because of the overwhelming flow of information these | Read More »
The Recession May Have Been Worse Than He Knew, But The Obama Administration Declared It Over by August 2009
The National Bureau of Economic Research declared the recession over in June of 2009. By September of 2009, Ben Bernanke was telling folks that based on the numbers the recession “is very likely over.” On June 17, 2010, the White House declared a summer of recovery. Today, there are fewer people in the jobs market than any time since September of 1981. Jobs numbers in | Read More »
When the only tool you have is a hammer….
Somewhere Warren G. Harding and James Buchanan are knocking back a few as they toast their elevation another rung up the ladder. Barack Hussein Obama will almost certainly be viewed by honest historians as the emptiest suit ever to hold the office of President of the United States. Privately, even Jimmy Carter must be all smiles as he anticipates a position upgrade. Obama has but | Read More »
Obama Speech: Multiply Failure, Divide the Country
What has always amazed me about Democrat policies is that they feign outrage over the need to implement them, even though they have already been championed by both parties, and have produced negative results. Government has already invested in crony capitalism and has already micro-managed every sector of the economy; from higher education to agriculture, health care, and energy. Many of these policies have been | Read More »
