The Threshold of a Reckoning (Redux)

    Amid the current unravelling of a policy, a law, a political philosophy, and an entire presidential administration, I once again return to the Ntrepid archives (1a) and look back on the eve of Mr. Obama’s re-election. (Unfortunately, the term “unravelling” denotes a certain permanence that I in no way believe a grudgingly focused, limited media spotlight and a fickle electorate will support. However, I can | Read More »

    Somewhat Wiser Than Before…

    Settle in, this might take a while… Recent headlines of note: Aides Debated Obama Health-Care Coverage Promise - Behind the Scenes, White House Officials Worried About Insurance Pledge (1) and A Dishonest Presidency (2).

    The Smallest of Men…

    […and really just a reason to post a few jabs that make me giggle at the expense of the most powerful “man” on Earth] If memory serves, it was still relatively early in 2009 when comments were made on the Hugh Hewitt radio show to the effect that “no incoming President is as big as the office he is entering but most grow into it…and | Read More »

    Portrait of a Failed President
