Obama Makes New Orleans Miss President Bush [Updated]
There’s quite a remarkable story in today’s New Orleans Times-Picayune. I wish I could cut and paste it in its entirety. It’s the story of two very different men that we chose to lead our country, and how, in the unlikely setting of New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast, we have a chance to compare and contrast their characters. The world knows one as | Read More »
Beware the person who got her job only after all the other competent people and Scott McClellan left the building.
Dana Perino does not like Matt Latimer’s book.For those who don’t know, Latimer is writing an insider’s account of the Bush White House. It is the first from an unapologetic conservative. Latimer’s credentials as a real winger can’t really be messed with. He is one of us. And he is making some news.Dana Perino has run to National Review to call him a liar without | 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 »
Dear White House: some pretty fishy Americans we think you should know about
Since the White House has called on us to rat out our fellow Americans, I thought I would do my part. There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of | Read More »
Obama driving the debt car
Awesome video illustration on the federal budget deficit and the shrieks about Bush and the shrugs over Obama. Who says math can’t be fun? *cross posted @
The Real Story of Ghana
So, Africa’s alleged favorite son, Barack Hussein Obama, the child of avowed socialist activist Barack Obama Sr. of Kenya, returned to Africa on an official state visit. Obama Sr was famous for exactly three things: promoting socialism, driving drunk, and fathering a plethora of illegitimate children that he quickly abandoned. For more on that, read the book “The Obama Nation.” So, as I was saying, | Read More »
Democrats offer lame “attack” ad against Portman
Why am I taking the time to show an attack ad by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee? Because I think it is far from damaging and I think it highlights a number of things. First of all, the Ds must be worried about Portman because why else would they offer an attack ad this early? They know Portman is raising serious money and that his | Read More »
Comparison: Economic Reporting Under Bush, and Under Obama
Ed Frank created an interesting little video that serves as a stark reminder of how harsh the Old Media was on Bush’s “faltering” economy in comparison to today’s hearts and flowers style of reporting during the age of Obama, even though the stats are far, far worse under Obama than they ever were under Bush. Frank’s video is shocking for its revelation of how Bush | Read More »
How far does Anti-Bush message get the Dems?
Cross posted from Ohio Politics Online. This USA Today article says what any observant person already knows: Many Democratic candidates are planning to run against two Republicans in the next election — their GOP opponent and former president George W. Bush. But the question is how long will this last and how far will it get them? Democrats control the White House and both houses | Read More »
The Scientific Left: Still on Its Honeymoon with Obama
Chris Mooney, author of the Republican War on Science, has a piece entitled “Hail to the intellectual president” in the May edition of New Scientist. The piece includes the usual mantra of the scientific Left: namely that George W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, Sarah Palin, and so forth, embody the tradition of American anti-intellectualism. By contrast, Barack Obama, who embraces intellectualism, has the potential to usher | Read More »
One wonders if Hollywood will ‘drop’ the Dalai Lama now.
After all, Freeing Tibet is one thing – but rank heresy of this sort? Audience member: “Can you give us an example of a leader we should look up to as a positive influence?” Dalai Lama (after thinking for a few seconds): “President Bush. I met him personally and liked him very much. He was honest and straightforward, and that is very important. I may | Read More »
Dems Have Permanent Majority … at Least Until the Next Election
Since November, I’ve become accustomed to predictions that the Republican Party is on its way to irrelevance. Nonetheless, I was disappointed to hear that sentiment voiced by University of Virginia professor and pundit Larry Sabato, who generally tries to provide a relatively objective analysis. On MSNBC’s Hardball today, Sabato opined that “we’re on our way from being a two-party system to being a party-and-a-half system. | Read More »
Leftwing Media ‘Group Think’ Not Just in America
Andrew Bolt has a fine takedown of The Age newspaper in Australia’s Herald Sun today, April 17. It details quite nicely that not just the U.S. media is wallowing in leftwing “group think”. His is headlined “Picture is kiss of death for George Bush prejudice” and lays out the complete lack of historical research of even recent events perpetrated by The Age newspaper in its | Read More »
Why we know that Biden’s confrontation of Bush story is false.
I read, of course, the story “Bush Aides Challenge Biden’s Boasts of Oval Office Slapdowns“: Aides to former President George W. Bush are challenging the veracity of Vice President Joe Biden’s claim this week of having privately castigated Bush, who does not remember the incident or an earlier episode in which Biden claims to have similarly rebuked Bush. Biden spokesman Jay Carney declined to specify | Read More »
