Barack Obama is not Articulate–Inconceivable!
That sound you hear is the sound of glass breaking and of liberal’s heads exploding. Yeah, I know—every pundit and Obama supporter in the MSM is perpetually waxing ecstatic about how “articulate” he is. And, many of his supporters will point to the following speech/video as evidence of his being quite the wordsmith. My, that sure is pretty (if you can ignore all of the | Read More »

Senator McCain: You are NOT John Wayne
(Inspired by mbecker908 post) Why do I bring up a classic American icon? Because both of you like to wade (sic) into the…debate at the opportune moment. But that where is the comparison ends. You see, John Wayne burst into the room where the villains were hiding with six-guns blazing; no one left except feet first. He didn’t make them sit down in a conference | Read More »
Health Care is a Right
Promoted from the diaries by Jeff At one of the McCain-Obama debates in the run-up to the 2008 presidential election, the candidates were asked in turn if health care were a right or a privilege. Obama answered unequivocally that it was a right, while McCain fumbled a bit and declared that it was a privilege. I disagree with both answers. The reason both were wrong | Read More »
Republicans need to be — the Party of “HELL NO” not the Party of “SLOW”
How the Colin Powell, John McCain, Arlene (disre)Specter*, Snowe? (one of Senate “Gang Of Sicks”), and others, model of the Republican Party is wrong-headed. *yes, he’s gone – thankfully – hopefully others will leave too. (removerinos.com) This is not going to be a long drawn out Diary as the points are simple and straight-forward. The points are most easily illustrated by addressing current events as | Read More »

Why Senator McCain? Why?
Playing nice with the President, Mr. Senator? Respecting the Office of the President, Mr. Senator? I know the above are typical of you. But in this case, many of us will not forgive you. All the Republicans and conservatives are “unanimous” that the economy has been tanking and Pres_ent Obama is poorly performing his job. But not you. You had the courage to make a | Read More »
Nobody Boos a Nobody
To summarize baseball legend Reggie Jackson: nobody boos a nobody. That is definitely true in the case of Governor Sarah Palin. I don’t think I am going out on a limb here when I speculate that individuals who repeatedly attack her anonymously view her as a threat. And that includes members of the media hell-bent tearing down young Republican up-and-comers as well as some in | Read More »
Hey GOP: Stop Acting Like A Woman Defending Her Family AND Her Convictions is a Bad Thing!
As the GOP sits comfortably in its political grave, it still fails to learn its lesson. Like the loser kid at school desperately seeking the approval of the schoolyard bully, the GOP continues to apologize for itself, shrink up like a flower in the scorching desert sun, and take swipes at its own members in an attempt to deflect any incoming venom from the bully | Read More »
A friendly suggestion to former McCain campaign staffers.
Background: Hot Air (Allahpundit), Hot Air (Ed Morrissey), The Weekly Standard, ConsiderThisNews (Pat Hynes), The Politico Since everybody else is piling on, let me add my own comment to the fray. If you were one of the people who participated in that Vanity Fair hit piece, and we find out your name, you will be a net drag on any national campaign for the rest | Read More »
There they go again
The NY Daily News is promoting the August edition of Vanity Fair, in which a vicious hit piece full of lies, distortions and innuendo savagely attacks everything about Sarah Palin, not the least of which is her character. The author is the liberal magazine’s national editor Todd Purdum. If you don’t know where he’s coming from, consider that Purdum formerly hacked for the New York Times, | Read More »
Hot dogs in public, credit-taking in private: the White House’s search for an Iranian domestic strategy.
Question: What do these two stories have in common? Iran Unrest Reveals Split In U.S. on Its Role Abroad [snip] Obama’s approach to Iran, including his assertion that the unrest there represents a debate among Iranians unrelated to the United States, is an acknowledgment that a U.S. president’s words have a limited ability to alter foreign events in real time and could do more harm | Read More »
Comprehensive Immigration Reform Slated for Fall Action
According to the Hill, Congressional Democrats are planning to run up a trial balloon on comprehensive immigration reform in June, and then take a crack at passing a bill late this year or next: Senate Democrats may be close to 60 votes on a measure that would represent the first step towards immigration reform under President Obama. The Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors | Read More »
The Great Huntsman Hoax
It seems like the announcement came out of nowhere this weekend: Governor Jon M. Huntsman Jr. will resign and accept an appointment as ambassador to China, ABC 4 has confirmed. The official announcement came during a press conference held by President Obama Saturday morning at the White House in the Diplomatic Room. President Obama asked the people of Utah to forgive him for taking their | Read More »
Time Gets Taken By Fake McCain Adviser Unmasked Months Ago
Recently I have been messing around with Twitter, the social media site of the day (shameless plug: see me as warnerthuston on Twitter). So, checking out some of the Old Media to see what they were saying about Twitter, I ran across Time Magazine’s attempt to seem cool with the Twitterers, er Twitterists, er Twits, er whatever they are called. Time was following some “Tweets | Read More »
An Inconvenient Report
In April, New York Times reporter David Barstow received a Pulitzer Prize for his story on the Rumsfeld-era public affairs outreach program to former military officers then working as journalists (the so-called “military analysts). The thrust of the article is that Mr. Rumsfeld and his subordinates used seductive perks like lunch at the Pentagon and access to top officials to manipulate these men into providing | Read More »
McCain/Graham Are Right on THIS one, Anyway!
After several years of missteps and dunderheaded RINOist policy proscriptions, Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham got one right for a change. The unctuous pair published an Op Ed in the Wall Street Journal on May 6 that is spot on in its analysis of the dangerous road down which Barack Obama and the Democrats are taking us as far as the war on terror | Read More »
