Obama: Unlimited Funds For Freddie-Fannie.
While the rest of the nation stagnates and one out of five Americans is out of a job, President Obama, in the still of the night, approved UNLIMITED FUNDING for mortgage giants Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac. The two entities that are probably singularly most responsible for the crash of the sub-prime housing loan market. Although they were successful in lining the pockets of many | Read More »
Fee, Fi, Fo, Fumble – Obama’s Nuclear Naïveté Could Spell Disaster.
Correction to article of Mon 12/21: I incorrectly stated that Americans were barred from travel in Pakistan in 1981. The State Department warned Americans that travel in Pakistan could be dangerous. Pakistan at that time was issuing 30 day visas. I have been unable to determine what national passport Barack Obama was traveling under, although it has been established that he was then living with | Read More »
Clinton in 2016?
That’s what the Telegraph thinks, at least. Hard to say whether the British paper’s distance from the situation help or hurts its judgment, but they’ve found an interesting poll: A recent poll by the Clarus Research Group found that Hillary Clinton had a 75 per cent approval rating compared to 51 per cent for the man who defeated her in their epic battle for the | Read More »
Hillary’s 100 Billion Largesse To Third World Dictatorships – Your Dollars!!
Isn’t it wonderful? Mrs Clinton spending money we DON’T HAVE now, the way she wished she could have spent it during her husband’s presidency. Gives you that warm glow, like a bonfire at the State Department. That fuzzy feeling that all liberals know and love, when their ‘well intended’ programs create HAVOC that they don’t have to pay for, solve, or be held responsible for | Read More »
Architects of Ruin
I just finished reading Architects of Ruin by Peter Schweizer. It is an excellent investigative report about how leftists wrecked the global economy, and will do it again if no one stops them. The author is not an economist, but his writing style reminds me of Jack Anderson back at a time when there were real investigative reporters. Today there are no real investigative reporters | Read More »
“Coffee Summit” (Sarah + Hillary) is a joke
Coffee summit? That’s a proposed meeting between Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton. The name is a take-off from Obama’s “beer summit” with a Harvard professor and a Massachusetts cop. Palin Finds One Bond With Clinton By SARAH WHEATON Published: November 15, 2009 Could there be a “coffee summit” in the future between Hillary Rodham Clinton — the secretary of state, runner-up for the Democratic presidential | Read More »
The Conservative Revolt is a Good Thing
And don’t you forget it. Chris Stirewalt at the Examiner draws a great parallel between the Obama/Clinton primary last year and why a Conservative/Republican streetfight will be a boon for our chances in 2010 and 2012, rather than the detriment Democrats so desperately wish it to be. Obama beat Clinton for the same reason that Hoffman may win in upstate New York. He offered an | Read More »
Resetting the Past at the Expense of the Future
This is not who we want talking about our family issues at Moscow State University. Standing before a massive mosaic of red Soviet flags and flanked by engraved quotations from Marx and Lenin, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gazed out at more than a thousand Russian university students and implored them to look to the future. Moscow State University at Night Starts off innocently enough. | Read More »
Russia Pulls a Fast One
Wasn’t part of the reason we ditched Eastern Europe and yanked the strategic missile defense there was so that Russia would play ball with us in toughening up on Iran? Yeh, good call. Those of us with a little more sense knew that would never happen and sure enough, it won’t. How could sanctions on Iran be “counterproductive”? There has to be a “productive” in | Read More »
Foreign Policy and Domestic Policy — President Obama’s Wrong Turn
Last year, as national finance chairman for John McCain’s Presidential campaign, I strongly supported my friend Sen. McCain, but have kept an open-mind about President Obama’s administration, which you can see in the “100 Days Scorecard” posted here back in April. Don’t get me wrong, it was not a glowing assessment. In particular, I gave him a “D” on the Economy, and his recent decision | Read More »

The Politics of PACs
Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, whose decision not to seek a third term as governor sparked immense speculation among Republicans about a 2012 campaign, announced today he will launch the “Freedom First” PAC in early November, granting him the opportunity to curry favor among the party faithful by raising and transferring sums of money to state and federal Republican candidates. After launching a website last week describing Pawlenty | Read More »
New Republic Editor: Parents “Disloyal” for Not Having Kids Listen to President Obama
Marty Peretz of the New Republic is usually a thoughtful liberal. I enjoy the New Republic. That’s why I was rather stunned by this article. Some parents don’t like the idea of the President beeming his image into every school in the country on Tuesday. I think a lot of people have gotten carried away with criticizing the president on this, but I’ll admit that I dislike it, | Read More »
Hillary Clinton for President: 2012 and The Gravity Of Discontent.
I have been wondering for a few weeks about Hillary Clinton and what she – and Billy Jeff – might be thinking when they see NObama’s numbers attracted by the increasing gravity of discontent. An article about her campaign fund still having several million dollars in it also hit my suspicious antennae! (The article naively wondered what was going on: what could be the purpose?) | Read More »
BREAKING—Hillary Renounces Pro-Choice View!
Well, not quite. Madame Secretary only seems disturbed by those “sex selection” abortions which favor boys (at the peril of girls, naturally). That, after all, amounts to discrimination. Next to “Republican” and “Bush” there’s probably no dirtier word in the language of the Left. To quote from Doug Bandow’s report in the American Spectator: Secretary Clinton, a supporter of unrestricted abortion, appears disturbed | Read More »
