Obama’s Second-Term Agenda Recycles Failed First-Term Policies
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 »
The Obama Jobs Plan #1 — Manufacturing
When I saw this headline on the Fox Nation – CNN: Not Only Is Obama’s Plan Old, but It Doesn’t Add Up – I laughed at first, but then I decided I would look at the plan to see what nonsense the administration is putting out. (You can download a PDF copy of the plan here.) On the first page, you get the overview of | Read More »
Muckraking Reaches New Low
Today’s headlines make me hang my head in shame. On one hand we have Gloria Allred and her Democrat clients trying to un-seal court documents relating to a contentious child custody matter in which Mitt Romney testified and, on the other, we have The Donald revealing that Michelle Obama once wanted to be shed of Barack. So what do these things have to do with | Read More »
It’s Ground Game Time For The Win In 2012
Not a lot remains about which to philosophize. Two weeks remain, the debates have finished and Campaign 2012 is down to the brass tacks of game-day execution. Having read everyone’s polls until I’m sick of the concept, I can boil election 2012 down to the following if/then/else statement.
If turnout >= D+5, then Barack Obama is re-elected

WPA’s Election Update: 2 Weeks Out
Sometimes even when you lose, you win. After a debate that has been described by most in the media as a “narrow loss,” Mitt Romney gained ground in all of the major national polls. But, some of the state-by-state polls suggest that Romney still trails in the Electoral College. So what’s really going on? With just two weeks to go until the election, we look | Read More »
Romney Target Marketing – Horses and Bayonets and Obama bin Laden
Romney came into last nights debate with a plan: to target the few remaining undecided voters and convert them. This was a chess move. He has demonstrated his willingness to attack in the first debate, spar in the second, and aikido in the third. My observations on last night’s debate: Romney knew his supporters will remain in his camp and there is very little he | Read More »
At Lynn, Mitt Wins Safe Debate
Governor Romney played it safe, but did enough to secure the win in the final debate at Lynn University. In playing it safe, however, Governor Romney did leave some notable issues on the table. For example, Romney had opportunities to attack the incumbent president’s position with respect to the tragic and preventable deaths in Libya and the faux video excuse propagated to the American people | Read More »
Obama And The International Vote
During the 2008 campaign candidate Barack Obama took a trip to Europe, ostensibly to show his foreign policy credentials and test drive his new approach to America’s role in the world. Foreign nationals of course cannot vote in American elections, but the world’s response – and Europe’s in particular – would show us whether or not Barack Obama was the man for the job. Or | Read More »
DWS Destroyed by…Glenn Greenwald
The old adage is that a broken clock is right twice a day. Apparently, it’s Glenn Greenwald’s time. Writing for the UK’s Guardian (the same paper that hired, and then fired, RedState Great Old One and Co-Founder Joshua Trevino, he takes Debbie Wasserman-Schultz to task for her complete ignorance of Obama’s “Kill List” that she displayed after this last debate. Greenwald writes:
The Taxes Are Coming! The Taxes Are Coming!
Since before they were passed, the “Bush tax cuts” were demonized by the media and the Democrats (redundant?) as being solely for the wealthy. Like so much leftist rhetoric, it simply isn’t so. The tax cuts enacted under President Bush (43) created a 10 per cent bracket, increased child tax credits, and eliminated the marriage penalty, among other things. This writer must be wealthy because | Read More »
Election Year Craziness
As we come down to the wire in this election season. I have noticed something, and perhaps you have too: Conspiracy theorists on both sides of this fracas have been working overtime. Never in my life have I ever seen such a level of goofiness. On one hand, it’s entertaining, and yet, on another, it makes me wonder just what is going on in this | Read More »
IS ABORTION LEAGALIZED MURDER?
At some point during the pregnancy process the fetus is considered a life, (common sense no degree required on that logical thinking, but when this actually happens is at the heart of the disagreement on this issue). Because the fetus is in fact eventually at some point considered life, although many believe it is after being born, “I don’t”, it also, therefore, at some point, has a | Read More »
Obama’s Foreign Policy Record vs. Romney’s Foreign Policy Plans
Originally published on 10/9/2012 In preparation for the upcoming presidential debate on foreign policy, let’s examine key areas of the president’s foreign policy as compared to Mitt Romney’s stated foreign policy goals. Iran The Obama administration continues to refuse to set “red lines” for Iran, apparently unmoved by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s recent speech to the United Nations. The sanctions | Read More »

Barack Makes A Funny – Four Americans Remain Quite Dead
A lot of people are angry about a lot of things concerning Barack Obama’s ongoing SCOAMF*-Fiesta in the nation of Libya. I addressed what it reinforced to me about his administration in a recent diary. Barack Obama exists at altitude and distance from the results of any decisions that he makes. He takes responsibility for his leadership decisions as President about as much as I take responsibility for playing the wrong guy on my fantasy football team.
He demonstrated his utter lack of concern about what happened by sending out Susan Rice and Stephanie Cutter to tell 1,001 Arabian Lies about what transpired on that fatal anniversary of 9/11 in Benghazi, Libya. When lying and blame shifting didn’t work, he ignored the first rule of holes** and continued his descent. He wants us to believe the whole thing is just a bump in the road – so inconsequential that he can poke a little fun at himself over at Comedy Central.
