John Yoo vs Jon Stewart
[H/T: Michelle via Ace ] So Jon Stewart invited John Yoo – who is promoting his new book; Crisis and Command – to the Daily Show and proceeded, using his own inimitable mix of smirking, mockery, sarcasm and outrage, to "take down" the torture-justifying fascist and show him for the thoroughly evil henchman of the Bush Regime he was, leaving him a sputtering sweating wreck | Read More »
The Change is Clear to See
The White House’s actions in the health care debate have made clear the fundamental change from the Bush administration’s way of doing things that President Obama has brought to the White House. The Bush administration treated America’s enemies as dangerous threats bent on destroying the country and used every resource at its disposal to defeat them while respecting American citizens’ right to disagree with its | Read More »
Zamboni vs Triple Salchow Championship Boxing Match
Neophyte politician Barack Obama met his match in Dick Cheney a mature, experienced statesman. Obama may think Rules for Radicals techniques will work on Dick, but he is dealing with a valiant, unmovable warrior. Obama is used to undying adulation and goes largely unchallenged in spite of providing minimal strategic policy details. Obama hasn’t a clue what he is doing and Dick Cheney is neither | Read More »
Bush was right: Congress OKs Carry in National Parks and Wildlife Refuges
From the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, an AP report that Congress has voted to allow licensed gun owners to carry loaded firearms in national parks and wildlife refuges. The bill easily passed Wednesday in the House by a vote 279-147. On Tuesday, the Senate passed a similar measure. The House and Senate votes mark a return to Bush administration policy that briefly allowed loaded guns in | Read More »
Fred Thompson on Obama’s decision to possibly prosecute Bush Administration officials
Fred Thompson takes Obama to task over the President’s latest amateurish flip flop — the green light that begins the process to provide the left its long-sought show trials of Bush Administration officials. Listen to the following YouTube audio clip: Fred really nails it.
Farewell to President Bush, A Decent Man
It is perhaps ironic that the left wing has settled on the characterization of President George W. Bush as a megalomaniac, obsessed with power and willing to trample on anyone or anything to achieve his evil aims. Ironic because it is President Bush’s refusal to even forcefully counter his critics, let alone trample on their right to criticize him, that has allowed the left to | Read More »
U.N. Resolution a Declaration of U.S. Victory in Iraq
Late last month, with scant attention from the domestic mainstream press, the United Nations Security Council passed resolution 1859; which, in effect ends the Iraq War. The resolution declared the end of the multi-national forces mandate in Iraq. The authority for U.S. troops remaining in Iraq has given way to the Status of Forces Agreement recently signed by the Iraqi government and the Bush Administration. | Read More »
Obama refuses to rule out investigation of the left’s alleged ‘crimes of the Bush administration’
President-elect Obama, in an interview with George Stephanopoulos on “This Week,” would not rule out political retribution dressed up as investigations of the looney left-wing’s fanciful allegations of Bush administration war-crimes:
Oil Company Conspiracy Theories FAIL
How many people, I wonder, will take note of this? A once-popular bumper sticker says simply, “When Bush took office, gas was $1.46.” It was meant to be a slam, but as the end of his eight years approaches, President Bush is seeing gas prices that, adjusted for inflation, are lower than when he was inaugurated. Last week’s $1.59 – the average for a gallon | Read More »
A New Favorite Blog With A Particularly Valuable Blog Post
Shadow Government is a new Foreign Policy group blog that will provide alternatives to many elements of the Obamaian foreign policy vision. A good resource for Republicans and others standing in general, loyal opposition to the incoming Administration who want to work to formulate a foreign policy platform that can, if necessary, take on the incoming Administration on a number of issues. This post, written | Read More »
I Like Dick Cheney
Originally posted at http://jumpinginpools.blogspot.com/2009/01/i-like-dick-cheney.html I know that everyone has a lot of fun making fun of Dick Cheney. But maybe that just means he’s cool. I mean, if a guy is a popular target for dumb college kids and entitled hippies, then maybe he’s not that bad of a guy. I wasn’t a fan of the man until 2004, when he bucked party Orthodoxy and | Read More »
As The Bush Administration Goes Out The Door . . .
The Arena asks what decisions the Administration may undertake before its departure. The subject quickly got to pardons, which law professor Steven Calabresi prompted. My take can be found near the end of the thread (alas, a direct permalink does not work for weird technical reasons that have to do with the Arena’s end of matters).
More Defense Attack Posturing
As the days go by, hot and dry (Arizona is a wonderful place to breath) the people who would be, but are now no longer, continue to set up their defense by attacking.
Schwarzenegger possibly afflicted with ‘Wikipedia Syndrome’
California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) may be suffering from ‘Wikipedia Syndrome’ as evidenced by his comments during an interview with progressive pundit George Stephanopoulos. Schwarzenegger’s criticism of the Bush administration’s position on global warming drew a number of lively comments at the ABC News blog Political Radar. Some commenters opted to use heated terms in somewhat inflammatory responses, such as street terminology for a female | Read More »
