Commander-in-“Chief Speaking Bull”
President of the United States, Barack Obama oftentimes publicly articulates profound moral indignation. Speech after speech, Obama has shown deep offense for everything from corporate executive earnings and bonuses to socio-economic, racial and cultural injustice. On occasion Obama has been known to exude righteous anger when attacked by detractors or criticized by popular news organizations. Barack Obama has exhibited ire at past administrations, political Neanderthal | Read More »
Beer summit short on substance and impact
The highly anticipated “beer summit” took place this evening with President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden sitting down for a beer with Sgt. James Crowley and Harvard Prof. Henry Louis Gates Jr. The meeting comes a week after a press conference in which the President said Crowley and other officers “acted stupidly” in arresting Gates, right after admitting he knew nothing about the case. | Read More »
Thank God Joe Biden was at the beer summit.
Contra Allahpundit. As one of Jake Tapper’s commenters noted, that way nobody else would have been able to get a word in edgewise. Looking at the body language, that might have been for the best. This really is iconic for Dizzy City, isn’t it? Four guys sitting around trying to pretend that their casual meet-and-greet-with-smiles-that-don’t-reach-the-eyes aren’t being filmed by umpteen billion different members of the | Read More »
Yet *more* on the Crowley/Gates thing.
If you operate your own website and are following the Crowley/Gates brouhaha, you’ve probably noticed an abrupt switch in your comments section; one side went from being pro-Gates (reasonable enough) to virulently anti-Crowley within the course of several hours.

Release the Crowley/Gates tapes.
This comment by Jack Dunphy over the entire Gates brouhaha resonates with me: So, since the president is keen on offering instruction, here is what I would advise he teach his Ivy League pals, and anyone else who may find himself unexpectedly confronted by a police officer: You may be as pure as the driven snow itself, but you have no idea what horrible crime | Read More »
President Diagnosed with Fonzie Disease
“In my choice of words, I unfortunately gave the impression that I was maligning the Cambridge Police Department or Sergeant Crowley specifically,” Obama said, walking back his sharpest criticism. But, the president said: “I continue to believe, based on what I have heard, that there was an overreaction in pulling Prof. Gates out of his home and to the station. I also continue to believe, | Read More »
Obama Sparks Racial Tension As Numbers Continue To Tank
In an absolutely imbecilic move Barack Obama opened a flood gate of racial tension during his Wednesday night press conference when he was asked what he thought about the arrest of black scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. In Cambridge Mass. For those who may not have heard the story, Gates was locked out of his home and apparently did not have his key and was | Read More »
Obama maligns doctors, police in anemic health care presser
In a prime-time press conference yesterday that President Obama hoped would bolster support for his plans for health care reform, the President gave a weak performance that was short on details and gave little in the way of new information. The press conference was the lowest-rated thus far for Obama, and he used his time to go after a few groups of people. In a | Read More »
