    Barack Obama Fully Embraces Death Panels

    While everyone else was focused on Barack Obama bashing Paul Ryan, I noticed that he took full ownership of death panels yesterday. Naturally, Obama did not call them death panels. He called them “an independent commission of doctors, nurses, medical experts and consumers.” But his description hits dead on with what his death panels will do. According to Barack Obama yesterday, the death panels “will | Read More »

    Bipartisan Mendacity

    If House Republicans vote for the bipartisan compromise, they should be driven into the street by the tea party movement and horsewhipped — metaphorically speaking. In reality, they should be primaried. What started out as $38.5 billion in cuts, turned into around $14 billion in cuts and a bunch of accounting gimmicks. Each new day brings new disgusting revelations. According to the Congressional Budget Office, | Read More »

    Should House Republicans Start Thinking About Replacing Speaker Boehner?

    The short answer is no, but I have been getting a lot of emails and phone calls into my radio show asking if the GOP should boot Boehner. No, they shouldn’t. I think John Boehner is more conservative than Eric Cantor, who’d most likely replace him, but Boehner’s leadership has been crap lately. This deal that got us $38.5 billion in cuts, turns out to | Read More »

    Nick Ayers: The Big News You Might Not Have Noticed

    I have done my best to ignore Tim Pawlenty. He has never struck me as the most exciting politician. His global warming position made me squeamish. He’s always had an okay record as Governor, but around the edges he struck me as not really a movement conservative.So I haven’t paid attention to Tim Pawlenty. Then he went and hired Nick Ayers.For those of you who | Read More »
