What’s Going on with Obama and the Military?
There is a real internal fight shaping up that I suspect is going to fester into a significant wound to Barack Obama’s Presidency. The Joint Chiefs of Staff are in open and public rebellion against the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs over Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Most troubling, the Obama administration neither consulted nor advices the Chiefs before rushing off the congress with the proposal | Read More »
The Great Divorce
People on the right often look at corporations and this administration and see an administration hostile to the free market. Therefore, we defend the corporations. It is natural and it should be the default. At the same time, however, we should be willing to point out the massive ties between British Petroleum and the Obama Administration. From Rahm Emanuel to Barack Obama’s own campaign coffers | Read More »
The EPA, Starring In James Cameron’s ‘The Oil Spill’
What to do when you are totally inept and in way over your heads? Call in Hollywood and turn a disaster into a disaster film! At least, that’s what our illustrious federal government does now, under the king of all things scripted and illusionary, President Obama. Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse than Shakira interjecting herself in Arizona’s illegal immigration policy, the feds | Read More »
Barack Lobster – Down, Down … goes his credibility
It was a joy to read this article from the UK Telegraph this morning. It illustrates just how low Barack Obama has sunk with the latest in a long string of bumblings and fumblings. His popularity continues to tank after a brief flirtation with recovery following his successful implementation of healthcare rationing. In the piece, the Telegraph’s Toby Harnden calls out Obama for his inept | Read More »
Fail: Obama Admin Now Even Failing at Chicago Style Politics
As further proof that whatever President Obama touches turns into a huge failure, even the administration’s recent attempts at Chicago style politics have failed miserably. They are so inept, partially due to unmitigated gall, that even the one thing in which the administration is well-versed, the Chicago Way, turns into another strike against them. You would think that they’d have learned the “it’s not the | Read More »
Lean times for Spratt?
According to an internal poll of Mick Mulvaney’s discovered by National Journal, the South Carolina Republican has gained 11 points on 14 term Democrat John Spratt of the 5th district. If the Chairman of the Budget Committee can’t use his seniority to keep his seat safe, then I would expect to see a wave nationwide.

Obama Administration and Democrats Kowtow to Other Countries While Scorning Those Who Have Died For Ours
In the past week, the Obama administration and fellow Democrats have let their true feelings for America known more than ever before. Well, at least more blatantly. They aren’t even bothering to hide it now and have lost all shame. No longer content with merely worshipping at the altar of multiculturalism, they are now going out of their way to boast that they believe that | Read More »
In Defending Barack Obama Skipping Memorial Day, the Left Calls Dead Soldiers ‘Political Props’
Barack Obama is skipping the Memorial Day tradition of the President laying a wreath at the tomb of the unknowns. It is not unprecedented. George H. W. Bush was on the campaign trail in 1992 and scheduled to speak at an American Legions event in Maine on Memorial Day. Ronald Reagan was in the midst of a contentious economic summit in 1983 and so sent | Read More »
This is one of the best sentences written about government lately. I was led to believe that a powerful and active federal government would be good for society at large, but unfortunately the federal government’s ability to be powerful and active is not as pronounced as its ability to be large, meddlesome when its help is not wanted, and slothful when its help is actually | Read More »
President Obama’s Terrible, Awful, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.
There’s no doubt it’s been a rough day (well, week) over at the White House. Let’s recap. The oil spill in the Gulf has rightly been coined “Obama’s Katrina.” They haven’t done anything, trying to walk the line of making BP pay for their mistakes without actually doing anything yourself. From Jason Meath at BigGovernment.com: The White House answer to the disaster in the Gulf: | Read More »
I Guess Deval Patrick Is Worried About Me
Speaking at a law school forum, Deval Patrick, the Governor of Massachusetts, said, “”on my worst day, when I’m most frustrated about folks who seem to rooting for failure.” I sure as heck am rooting for Barack Obama’s failure. Look at this place. Under Obama’s regime the SEIU purple people beaters are showing up on the porches of private citizens to harass them, oil is | Read More »
Don’t let them tell you they don’t want to censor the Internet
They do. Oh boy do they ever want to censor the Internet. Why else would the FCC take the radical step of deem-and-pass Title II reclassification of ISPs to regulate them like phone companies? It’s because the endgame of Net Neutrality is total control. Today I came across two slipups that give up the game, despite the FCC’s promises of “forbearance” and the greater left’s | Read More »
But at least they have Obama!
There’s a lot of interesting stuff in this John Dickerson article on what last night’s results really mean, but this last paragraph is probably the one that needs to be most referenced: The night showed just how limited Obama’s political power is. He said he’d work all-out for Specter, but he didn’t campaign for the senator in the final days. That may have been a | Read More »
You Think China’s Gulags Are Bad? Let Me Tell You About Arizona.
You cannot parody the Obama Administration. China forcibly hauls women into vans to forcibly perform abortions, sends people to gulags, kills dissidents, etc., etc., etc. All of that apparently pales in comparison to Arizona. Yes, the Obama Administration is apologizing to China for Arizona’s existence. [Michael] Posner [the Assistant Secretary of State] said in addition to talks on freedom of religion and expression, labor rights | Read More »
Barack Obama’s Deficit
There was a USA Today story the other day that taxes in the United States are ridiculously low now. The basic gist of the story, pushed by leftwing groups who want everyone to bow down and face Washington for its “gifts” — never mind that it is your money to begin with — is that there is no conceivable way anybody in their right mind | Read More »
