The Democrats’ Disaster: More Americans Question Barack Obama’s Birth Story Than Support the Ground Zero Mosque
UPDATE: I’ve looked at more numbers. Consider this: the percentage of people who think 9/11 was an inside job is equal to the percentage of people who think the Ground Zero mosque is a good idea. —– “Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a man whose first reaction to the Time Square bombing plot was to blame people upset about Obamacare passing, has ceded being the face of | Read More »
New ad spotlights Dems’ unease with Obama on the stump
The story of an irritated JetBlue flight attendant whose tantrum last week drew national attention is the subtext of a new web ad in which endangered Democrats frantically escape an airplane piloted by the president with a course set for their home states and districts. Parodies aside, the 50-second spot highlights a serious concern among Democrats: President Barack Obama’s unpopularity–stemming from his controversial overhaul of | Read More »
President fully entangled in 9/11 Mosque affair.
There’s been a good deal of discussion over whether the President should have gotten involved with the conflict over whether to build a mosque in Ground Zero*. Certainly the President himself has had second thoughts about that: his strong statement on Friday was followed up by a predictable backtrack on Saturday, and the anonymous sniping from his own administration officials over that was likewise inevitable. | Read More »
The Idiocy of Barack Obama’s Mosque Support
Barack Obama last night came out forcefully in favor of the Ground Zero Mosque. He said he believed our nation’s founding principles demanded it. Really? Which of those founding principles? This man was a law professor. Surely he understands that our founding principles do not compel the President of the United States to support the specific act of an individual based on our founding principles. | Read More »
Understanding Barack Obama By Proxy Syndrome
Kjersten Forseth of ProgressNow Colorado blasted out an email yesterday seeking to define Ken Buck early as too fringe for Colorado. In her email she said What would you say about a man who thinks you should vote for him because he “doesn’t wear high heels?” What would you say about a man who endorsed a radical abortion ban, and says he even opposes a | Read More »
Agreed, Gibbs: Obama is not Bush.
As you may recall, White House press flack Robert Gibbs earlier this week announced his frustration with his party’s fringe Democrats who are unaccountably upset that they trade money and effort for… well, Gibbs’s frustration and contempt. It was fascinating to watch – for that matter, so was the latest extended whine from Alan ‘counting-the-days-until-his-permanent-MSNBC-gig’ Grayson on the subject* – but my sense of honor | Read More »
Obama vs. Obama – Afghanistan edition
Huffington Post Video Editor Ben Craw has put together a devastating video of President Obama debating Senator Obama about Obama’s Afghanistan war strategy. Craw accomplished this fete using clips of Senator Obama questioning Rice about Iraq in January 2007 with comments President Obama has made about his own Afghan exit strategy in a speech in March 2009, an interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes” in March | Read More »
That’s about the only thing
Bill White, the Democratic candidate for Governor of Texas, fled Austin today to make sure there was no chance he would run into Barack Obama. The other day, Roy Barnes, the Democratic candidate for Governor of Georgia, fled Atlanta to make sure there was no chance he would run into Barack Obama. In Austin, TX today, Obama said: In reference to the upcoming November congressional | Read More »
Barack Obama’s Endless Summer
As Barack Obama heads out to do some fundraisers today, the NRSC has prepared a pretty solid video highlighting Obama’s pattern of frivolous behavior.
The Left: Sanctioning Infanticide As an Ends Justifying The Means
Barbara Boxer was recently up in arms over some words. No, this time it wasn’t the oh-so horrifying word ma’am. She was up in arms over her own words or, more to the point, the fact that George Will was holding her to her own words – words that expressed a pro-abortion position so extreme, it can only be described, no matter one’s position on | Read More »
Barbara Boxer still leading, still vulnerable
From Unlikely Voter: Carly Fiorina’s support continues in a band of 38-43 in the new Rasmussen poll of the California Senate race, while Barbara Boxer fails to reach 50. Boxer strikes me as the Democrats’ counterpart to Richard Burr: She really ought to be doing better, but she’s letting her opponent hang around.
The Obama Jobs Program: Ship ‘em to Sri Lanka
In June, 2010, there were roughly 14 million unemployed Americans. President Obama has made much noise about saving or creating jobs, jobs bills, and extending unemployment benefits. My dad used to say “actions speak louder than words”, and Barack Obama’s actions belie his claims to care about creation of jobs. Case in point: training programmers in Sri Lanka to offshore American jobs. Despite President Obama’s | Read More »
On Missouri and the rejection of the PPACA
From Unlikely Voter: When I heard yesterday that Missouri passed an initiative attacking the PPACA in state, and declaring that Missouri’s citizens are exempt from portions of it, I thought it would be interesting to compare that Proposition C’s results with polling on the issue in state. So let’s check.
President Obama, Shamelessly and Hypocritically Lying. Again.
President Obama gave an interview to CBS on Sunday, wherein he attempted to explain his stance against Arizona’s SB 1070 Immigration bill. Still no word on whether or not he’s actually read the bill yet, but based on his inane murmurings, I’d have to go with No. But, to be fair, during the interview he did display a few things that he does quite well: | Read More »
Another Democrat Refuses to be Anywhere Near Barack Obama
Barack Obama is going to visit Georgia. Obama is going to speak at a gathering of disabled veterans. He’ll then do a DNC fundraiser. The elected Republican Governor, Sonny Perdue, has moved heaven and earth on his schedule to make sure he can get out of what he was doing to be there to greet the President. According to his spokesman, “[E]ven if you disagree | Read More »
