    Christian Brose: Obama should have thanked Bush for the surge.

    (Via Hot Air Headlines) This is in the context of mentioning President Obama’s recent military speech, and in the context of discussing the fairly obvious – to people with functioning neural tissue, at least – points that the President is coasting on Bush’s successful surge strategy; and that our failure to actually have an ambassador to Iraq at the moment is, put simply, dumb.

    White House does an about-face on Bush hit job

    If you recall, shortly after the inauguration the Obama team completely replaced and gave it the O treatment.  Many of us on the right excoriated them for bashing President Bush on various pages on the site. Well, it seems they’ve had second thoughts.  In a very clever move, web site turned on a change tracking system aimed at several key administration web sites, | Read More »

    (Cartoon) – Battle of the bumper stickers…

    Gingrich is only stating the obvious … but obviously the GOP is deaf

    I ran across the following essay by New Gingrich in the February 11, 2009 issue of The Washington Times. It offers a very succinct yet practical — and in my opinion, except for a lack of mention of the social issues, a very correct view — of Where Does the Conservative Movement Go from here? His advise basically is summed up in three steps he | Read More »

    Biden still not done with blaming Bush

    So, no matter what you do in Washington, there is a 30% chance you democrats will fail and America will be worse off after you do it? I’m sure that’s not going to make the evening news. It seems that our beloved Vice President has opened his mouth again to pitch the stimulus plan. While delivering a speech to about 200 Democratic House members on | Read More »

    The “W” Legacy…It Is Time For History To Get It Right

    I had a chance to watch the coverage of President Bush’s return to Texas and I have to say, there is something that has bothered me ever since. He addressed the crowd from behind a podium bearing the Texas state seal and spoke in the same folksy manner we have seen from him since day one. As he finished his speech and went on to | Read More »


    Obama caves on Osama’s cave

    Originally published by Mike DeVine, Legal Editor for The Minority Report Former cave residence in Afghanistan (pictured) The drive-by media and the leaders of the national Democratic Party have claimed for four years that the War on Terror was a failure since Osama bin Laden was still at large. The President-Elect himself campaigned for two years on the theme that the Iraq War had caused | Read More »

    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 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 »
