    Doing Fine?

    Obama can’t fix a problem he can’t see. No, you heard him right. At a press conference this morning, the President of the United States actually said, “The private sector is doing fine.” Mr. President, are you paying attention? Take off the rose-colored glasses. (Although, thanks to your fashion industry fundraising friends, I’m sure they’re very stylish rose-colored glasses.) The private sector is small businesses. | Read More »

    On Jobs, Obama is Running from Reality

    Today’s extremely troubling jobs report is yet another sad reminder that President Obama’s policies simply are not working—and that we need a president who understands the economy. Last night on CNN former President Bill Clinton praised Mitt Romney’s “sterling” career in the private sector. This morning Steny Hoyer echoed that sentiment, underscoring the importance of the private sector in growing our economy. While Mitt Romney’s | Read More »

    Obama Is Running on Excuses

    From the diaries. Harry S. Truman famously said of the presidency, “The buck stops here.” President Obama might as well make his slogan: “Pass the Buck.” His record of failures and broken promises has left him with no record to run on. But instead of holding himself accountable, the president blames everybody but himself. Of course, as with many things, he promised it would be | Read More »

    Hope, Handbags, and Hypocrisy

    This morning’s Wall Street Journal reports on Obama’s “Runway to Win” fashion fundraiser tonight, where the campaign will begin hawking campaign-themed apparel and accessories from high-end designers. The article also raises some serious issues about potential campaign finance law violations: “Jan Baran, an election lawyer with Wiley Rein LLP, said designers can’t ask employees to work on political projects unless they willingly volunteered their time. | Read More »

    The Fast and Furious Cover Up

    From the diaries by Erick . . . Eric Holder testifies before Congress today on his department’s outrageous Operation Fast and Furious scandal. Eager to provide political cover for Obama’s embattled Attorney General, House Democrats yesterday released a report attempting to exonerate Holder and his political appointees for failing to do their jobs. Of course, their report says Holder’s innocent. The facts say he’s guilty. I say he | Read More »

    Unaccountable and Unacceptable: Fast and Furious and the Incompetent Administration

    Today, Obama’s top lawyer takes the stand. But in the eyes of the American people, Attorney General Eric Holder has already been found guilty. Holder is testifying before Congress about his role in Operation Fast and Furious— the failed federal gun-trafficking sting that resulted in the death of a border patrol agent and the loss of more than 1,400 weapons to Mexican drug cartels. When he | Read More »

    Obama’s Dual Deficits

    On Monday, President Obama announced to the people of Europe that the United States stands “ready to do our part” to help Europe resolve its debt crisis. If only he were so ready to do his part to solve the U.S. debt problem. Today marks the one-year anniversary of the report from the Bowles-Simpson Fiscal Commission, the 18 member group the president tasked with finding | Read More »

    The 2012 Standard: Holding President Obama Accountable

    President Obama did voters a favor. During the 2008 campaign and early in his administration, he laid out the standards by which he should be judged. He made it perfectly clear under what conditions he would deserve re-election. And by his own standard he doesn’t deserve a second term. In February 2009, when employment was at 8.2 percent, he declared, “If I don’t get this | Read More »

    From Insult to Injury: Obama Owes Netanyahu An Apology

    Promoted from the diaries Allies are people you work with.  Garden pests and leaky faucets are things you “deal with.” President Obama doesn’t seem to know the difference. At the G20 summit last week in France, he let out his true feelings on Israel.  And a live mic was there to catch it all. Here’s the exchange between President Obama and French President Sarkozy on | Read More »

    20 Days and Counting: How Long Will Obama Keep America in the Dark on Solyndra?

    It’s been 20 days since the FBI raided the headquarters of Solyndra, the bankrupt stimulus-back solar energy company.  For twenty days the President’s advisers have decided to keep him in the dark about what led the company to squander $535 million of taxpayer money. But there was one briefing about the mismanaged loan program—in October 2010, that is.  Yes, news broke yesterday that the President’s | Read More »

    The White House’s $535 Million Photo Op

    As the Solyndra scandal continues to unfold, Americans are clamoring for the President to take responsibility.  With more suspicious details coming to light, multiple entities have launched investigations—the FBI, the Inspector General of the Energy Department, the Inspector General of the Treasury Department, and the House Energy and Commerce oversight subcommittee.  From what we’ve seen so far, the verdict seems pretty clear: the White House | Read More »

    Tell the White House We’re Running on Empty

    Please welcome from the diaries the Chairman of the RNC The summer of 2010 was supposed to be the Summer of Recovery. That’s what President Obama told us. It wasn’t and now nearly a year later, unemployment remains unacceptably high. With gas prices at nearly $4.00 a gallon and on the rise, the forecast for the summer of 2011 isn’t looking much better. America is | Read More »
