Two Great Takes on SOTU

    Hop on over to Mark Levin’s Facebook Page for his take on the State of the Union. The first paragraph starts it off nicely. President Obama’s foot remains where it has been since the day he entered the Oval Office, on the gas pedal.  He’s not braking for anyone or anything.  All this pre-SOTU spin from Obama’s whisperers, gobbled up by the Obama-hungry media, was always | Read More »

    Earmark Veto Vow? What Earmark Veto Vow?

    (Via Ace Of Spades) Purple Avenger notes that the earmark veto was “kidnapped, murdered, and chucked into some Washington D.C. version of a shallow grave where anything showing a whiff of spine or honesty is summarily dumped.” It reminds me of a political cartoon that has a human spine in a corner of a room. A bunch of donkeys are look at it and are | Read More »

    Prom Night.

    The only thing missing was Barney Frank as Prom Queen… well, queen anyway. I can’t tell you how uncomfortable I felt when our chosen warriors were duped into the ridiculous pose of sitting with the opposition, to illustrate some sort of new ‘tone’ at the State of the Union show. Many times I’ve talked about and warned the Republicans about letting the opposition control the | Read More »

    Rep. Sandy Adams (FL-24) Responds To State Of The Union

    Representative Sandy Adams (FL-24) sends out a response to President Barack Obama’s State Of The Union via email. I would first like to take this time to point out that Sandy Adams’ email not once refer to her as a Congresswoman. I like that a lot. When they start refering to themselves as a Congressman or Congresswoman, then they stop being our Representative. I see | Read More »

    The Sputnik Moment

    “Barack Obama did not jump the shark; he sputniked.” Barack Obama’s “Sputnik Moment” sums up his speech best. In fact, there is no reason to fully dwell on his speech in light of the sputnik moment. What do I mean? Consider this: Barack Obama declared that “This is our generation’s Sputnik moment.” His reference was to the mobilization of the United States after the Soviets | Read More »

    State of the Union

    Obama on re-election mode; outwardly conciliatory, internally unmoved by the political and social realities.  Saying some right things (getting rid of the one small “flaw” in Obamacare (read the 1099 forms fiasco); lowering the corporate tax rate to increase competitiveness, but only if “Republicans” (?!) agree to close loopholes).  Saying some party-line things (e.g., hiring 100,000 new teachers to get America back on the lead in education | Read More »

    The Bachmann Speech

    Much has been made of Michelle Bachmann’s “Tea Party” response to the State of the Union.For days the media has been playing this up as a major conflict within the Republican Party. In fact, a number of Republican leadership aides pulled out all the stops trying to get the networks to ignore Michelle Bachmann.Kudos to CNN for its willingness to cover the speech in full.I | Read More »

    The Best Part of the State of the Union Speech…

    The absence of Pelosi sitting in the speaker’s chair was absolutely the best part of the State of the Union Speech tonight! It was so refreshing not to have that arrogant woman glaring in the background! Listening to the president is enough torture for one night without having Pelosi’s mug in the background. Ryan and Bachmann brought reality to the forefront with their rebuttals to | Read More »

    The State of the Union is recycled

    To paraphrase the campaign phrase of Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign, it’s still the lack of jobs and excessive spending, stupid! You can hardly read anything about politics these days without having Obama’s so-called pivot thrown in your face. Obama’s virtual turn on a dime is so far nothing more than a serious spin effort. It seeks to capitalize upon Obama’s Tucson moment and try | Read More »

    Why I’m not watching the State of the Union

    Tonight, the President will stand before the assembled houses of Congress and give his State of the Union address.  He’ll smile for the cameras.  He’ll speak bold words and pause for the cheers and applause.  He’ll look out over the assembled mass of legislators, paiges, lobbyists and hangers-on and breathe in the freshness of being the center of attention for the entire world. And it | Read More »
