Senator Vitter to Lead Fight Against TARP

    My sources in the Senate indicate that later this morning Senator David Vitter (R-LA) is going to be teaming up with Senators Jim DeMint (R-SC), Jim Inhofe (R-OK), Jim Bunning (R-KY), Jeff Sessions (R-AL), and John Barrasso (R-WY) to introduce a resolution of disapproval for the release of the second $350 billion of the so called Troubled Assets Relief Program (TARP).  President Bush has indicated | Read More »

    An example of how Bush doesn’t “get” fiscal discipline

    In the joint interview tonight with Bush41 and Bush43, Bush43 apparently tells Fox news that “the GOP should remain anti-tax and pro-military.”  If you read between the lines, you will see the biggest problem with the current administration.  When he says that we should remain “anti-tax” it tells me that the President just doesn’t understand the fiscal philosophy of conservatism.  Anti-tax is not it.  We’re | Read More »

    Thank You Mr. President

    Eight years have passed bringing us to the final full week of the administration of George Walker Bush, the forty third President of The United States. A few weeks back I posted about the legacy of President Bush so this will not be about what he will leave behind but a personal story of gratitude for what he has done for our Nation as he | Read More »

    Obama as cool mute: One moral standard at a time

    Obama as cool mute: One moral standard at a time Originally published by Mike DeVine, Legal Editor for The Minority Report Obama’s children don’t live in Israel or Gaza, but they did live in Chicago after 911. That didn’t stop him from favoring OJ trials for Osamas or echoing the bush lied crowd. Even Hamas notes that the President-Elect denounced the terrorist attacks on Mumbai | Read More »

    Bush Environmental Contributions Ignored, Again

    Know it or not, but George W. Bush may be the friendliest president to the environment we’ve ever had. Yes, he didn’t sign the Kyoto Protocol, but my statement still stands. Originally posted at Jumping in Pools. Why? Well, Texas is the number one state in the Union as far as wind energy is concerned. This is because Governor Bush actively pushed for wind turbines | Read More »

    Inheriting the worst economy since FDR?

    Since Barack Obama became president-elect, many in the mainstream media have claimed he will inherit the greatest economic crisis since FDR.   Interestingly, many in the media made similar claims before Ronald Reagan was sworn in as president. For example, according to the January 19, 1981 issue of Newsweek, “When Ronald Reagan steps into the White House next week, he will inherit the most dangerous | 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 »

    America’s Liberal Shift?

    The GOP was unarguably massacred in 2008 on several fronts; in the Presidential election, the House, and the Senate races. At first glance, there seems to have been a shift in the paradigm of thought within the American voter’s mind. But the question remains, was it against conservative principles and a movement towards a more modern progressive-left philosophy? Or was it a repudiation for the | Read More »

    Bush: socialist or right wing extremist?

    Is President Bush a right wing extremist, as Al Gore charged, or is he the socialist Bristol baby conspiracy theorist Andrew Sullivan implied and conspiracy theorist at large Lew Rockwell insists? The answer is neither, of course. But the president has surely taken a beating from both sides of political center over his two terms in the White House. Ed Gillespie explodes some of the | Read More »

    No, he shoe-dint have

    You have all, no doubt, heard (and probably seen the video footage) about the Iraqi “reporter” that hurled his shoes at President Bush during a Press conference in Iraq. However, you probably have yet to see/hear about the Che Guevara connection. The MSM cannot pass any opportunity to display any human they can find that displays displeasure about the Bush administration. President Bush was not | Read More »

    White House calls a timeout on the auto bailout

    Looks like taking money from the TARP fund to support an auto bailout isn’t as much of a slam-dunk as it appeared yesterday. It’s being reported this evening that the WH isn’t quite ready to pull the trigger on a bailout. From Reuters: President George W. Bush said on Monday an announcement on a auto industry rescue was not imminent, leaving the industry’s fate clouded | Read More »

    GAY WATCH

    GAY WATCH: GWB, THE POPE, U.N., OBAMA It never seems to end. I’m not referring to the Governor Blago–Chicago–Obama–Rezko affair(s), which won’t end for months and which may be concluded with more resignations and indictments than just Illinois Governor Blagojevich’s.  I refer to Gays in the News. First, we have the LGBT set, (that’s the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered set, for those not in the | Read More »

    Bush Drops Out of Marathon at 26.1 Miles

    Last year in a speech at Heritage, President Bush proudly proclaimed: “I’m looking forward to working with you for the next 14 months, but you better put on your running shoes because my spirits are high, my energy level is good and I’m sprinting to the finish line.” Judging from his administration’s recent actions, Bush is crawling, and certainly not sprinting.
