    If This is the Real Conscience of a Liberal, Liberals Are Disgusting

    Paul Krugman posits himself as the conscience of a liberal at the New York Times.If he speaks for liberals, liberals are truly disgusting. I assume and believe that most liberals reject this and hope many of them will be vocal about the disagreement. And the New York Times might want to rethink using Krugman’s conscience as that of a typical liberal.Today he remembers September 11, | Read More »

    The President Moves on to Jobs

    Yeah, let’s roll the tape again.

    Last Night, President Obama Sowed the Seeds of His Own Destruction

    Consider, objectively, some of the points of Barack Obama’s plan.He wants to extend unemployment benefits again. He wants to extend a payroll tax holiday. He wants to give tax credits to small businesses to hire people. He wants more government pork for more roads and bridges.These are all things Republicans have gone along with in the past. These are all things Republicans will probably go | Read More »

    I’ll be on radio breaking down this ridiculous farce tonight

    I’ll be on the radio tonight starting at 9pm to break down this ridiculous farce of a speech. You can listen live at and call in to vent at 1-800-WSB-TALK.Consider this an open thread.

    The Obligatory Word Cloud For Tired Old Rhetoric

    This speech sounds pretty much exactly like all his other failed speeches. Pretty much every job he talks about, just like in 2009, 2010, and 2011 are government jobs or jobs dependent on government.The purpose of the American Jobs Act is simple: to put more people back to work and more money in the pockets of those who are working. It will create more jobs | Read More »

    All You Need To Know About the President’s Speech

    (1) The President will take Richard Trumka of the AFL-CIO with him to Congress tonight. Trumka’s union saw 500 of its members storm a business last night, take hostages, and destroy property. The President will also take Jeffrey Immelt of GE with him. General Electric is a prime example of a business that has profited lately not through the free market, but through the government | Read More »

    Alarm Bells at the White House Over David Weprin’s Race in NY-9

    Unlike the other New York special election races where the Democrats batted a thousand and the media covered them as prognosticators of doom and gloom for the GOP, there’s been radio silence for the most part on the special election to replace Anthony Weiner in NY-9.But there are alarm bells going on at the White House and the DNC. The DCCC just dropped a half-million | Read More »

    The Horserace for September 8, 2011

    Mitt Romney won the NBC-Politico debate on points and Newt Gingrich won on rhetoric. But Rick Perry held his own and, consequently, locks in front runner status for now. If, however, Perry can’t improve his debate performances, he may be a short-lived front runner.Michele Bachmann is fading from view. Newt Gingrich reminds us he is a good debater. Even the folks on MSNBC say Jon | Read More »


    Deja Vu All Over Again: The White House Talking Points for the Speech

    The White House has begun sending out talking points on Stimulus II to left wing groups. I’ve obtained a copy. I think we need Bill Murray to speak tonight, because I feel like I’m living in Ground Hog’s Day.The American Jobs Act is:based on bi-partisan ideas;it is fully paid for by closing corporate tax loopholes and asking the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share; | Read More »


    I realize we’re all supposed to be in the tank for Mitt Romney, but when the heck did we suddenly love social security? It’s nuts.We’ve got Karl Rove out denying it is a ponzi scheme solely because he hates Rick Perry. It’s all politics, not principle.Mitt Romney says that millions of Americans being dependent on government for their retirement is the definition of a successful | Read More »
