Barack Obama’s Presidential Campaign would like the children to sing to you. Relax and enjoy.
Mitt Romney may have nothing left to fear from his challenger, Barack Obama except fear itself. Barack Obama could run for reelection using all the wonderful things he’s done for America in his first term of office. He could fill us all to the inebriated brim with hope about his ambitious, progressive, forward-looking and unprecedented 2nd term agenda. Oh, wait…Nope, he’ll be scaremongering from here until we go to the polls.
Of course I don’t agree with Paul Krugman. I’m a Republican. I’m not supposed to. I’d like to think it’s not just blind partisanship but if I’m honest, it’s a little partisan. The difference; Krugman, in all his Nobel Laureate-ness, is all partisan. This is the great flaw of Paul Krugman, he has forsaken scientific methods for liberal touchy-feeliness but wrapped in an officious affectation. On a | Read More »
Vladimir Lenin once said, “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.” In the electronic age, the left has hammered this theory home harder than ‘ol Vlad could have ever imagined. Every day for two weeks, Team Obama and their media cronies repeatedly told the story of the anti-Muslim video inciting a riot in Benghazi causing the death of our Libyan ambassador and three other | Read More »
Argo is the story of Antonio (Tony) Mendez, a CIA technical operations officer. In a way, he was the Intelligence version of a graphic designer. He was a forger, disguise maker and anything else that needed a crafty hand. The movie is about the escape crafted by Mendez to ‘exfil‘ a small group of embassy workers that escaped the Iranian student overtaking in 1979. Argo is | Read More »
You know what? SECDEF Leon Panetta is way too important for any of you to criticize. Unlike the rabble, he knows about running operations. He manages risk. He bristles at the Monday Morning Quarterbacks who deign to question his perspicacity and strategic brilliance in how he handled the tragic events of September 11, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya. He also has a rather pompous 4th point of contact in need of cover and concealment. He throws General Ham, and General Dempsey under the bus below.
“(The) basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on; without having some real-time information about what’s taking place,” Panetta said, according to The Associated Press. “And as a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground in that area, Gen. Ham, Gen. Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation.”

You know who you are. You didn’t vote for Mitt Romney in the primary – he’s a moderate, was governor of a liberal state, isn’t consistently pro-life, etc. He’s not your guy. You’re a Conservative – down to your bones. You believe in free markets, liberty, as small a federal government as possible, less taxes, less government spending, less focus on foreign interests and more focus | Read More »
With his most recent appearance on The Tonight Show and his upcoming appearance on MTV, Obama has cemented his title as The Celebrity President. Just to recap, Obama has appeared on the following TV shows, either as a candidate or more than likely as President: The Tonight Show – 5 times Late Night with David Letterman – 7 times Late Night with Jimmy Fallon | Read More »
In an interview with the Des Moines Register that was originally off-the-record, the President revealed his plan for deficit reduction in a second term. He said, “So when you combine the Bush tax cuts expiring, the sequester in place [...] we’re going to be in a position where I believe in the first six months we are going to solve that big piece of business.” | Read More »
“SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden”, a movie backed by longtime Democratic contributor and major Obama supporter, Harvey Weinstein, has apparently been recut in order to heighten Obama’s role in the movie. The movie will debut on the National Geographic channel two days before election day. And, it’s scheduled to be released the next day on Netflix. The movie focuses on the | Read More »
The second part of Obama’s plan – which I am still trying to figure out why he didn’t release until two weeks before the election – is focused on achieving energy independence. His overall goal is to pursue an “all of the above” energy strategy. (Hasn’t he been saying this during his first term – before he started campaigning for re-election?) To do this, Obama | Read More »
Here’s a happy surprise, fellow political junkies. If you look, you will probably find Romney Ryan signs in front of the Detroit News this morning. The Motor City’s future once teetered on the knife-blade of bankruptcy and, at least according to Team Obama, would have been cast aside as so much refuse if Mitt Romney had had his way. Romney was not in favor of | Read More »
I was talking to a liberal the other day. He and I have a funny rapport. Once, years ago, we had quite the political clash. I try not to be so vocal in settings where politics should be left at the door. A workplace, for instance. Sometimes, you have no choice. The rhetoric goes too far and the the facts need to be heard. That | Read More »
In the aftermath of the second town-hall style Presidential debate, Democrats pounced on a statement made by Governor Romney concerning a question about equal pay for women in the workplace. His explanation of how his administration worked with women’s groups included recounting that the women’s groups brought them “binders full of women.” The statement exploded immediately, with those on the left painting the Governor as | Read More »
On Tuesday, the Obama campaign released a 20 page pamphlet which outlines President Obama’s second-term agenda–which is essentially the same as his first-term agenda. Mike Allen, of Politico writes: “This is a re-packaging of the plans the president has previously announced of manufacturing, education, energy.” And, CNN’s Jessica Yellin commented that “there’s not anything significantly new in here.” Yellin went on to say: “He’s just | Read More »
