    You Think Obama Stole the Election? Then Read This

    In the aftermath of Romney’s defeat a new conspiracy theory, or a close kin thereof, has emerged: Obama stole the election. This has joined 9-11 Trutherism and Birtherism (along with the Bilderbergers, Illuminati, Opus Dei, and the Protocols of the Elders of Zion) as a subject lucid people don’t talk about in a non-ironic way.

    Obamacare Meets Reality. Reality Wins.


    The Obama regime’s ideological blinders and lack of real world experience has led to the development of a health care law that promises to increase cost to the government, reduce options to consumers, and cause companies to downsize and convert full time workers to part timers. This is truly a triumph of Cargo Cult Economics.

    Paul Krugman Agrees There Is No Fiscal Cliff


    Last week I proposed that the GOP walk away from the negotiations on the alleged Fiscal Cliff because we gain nothing from the process. Since then the CBO has agreed with me that there is no fiscal cliff. Now Paul Krugman, Nobel Prize winning economist and Obama fluffer, recommends that Obama walk away, too.

    The CBO Says The Fiscal Cliff Is A Good Thing

    Did Obama Refuse To Aid Our Men In Benghazi?


    As the evidence leaks out is seems more and more clear that not only did the Obama White House know exactly what was transpiring on the ground in Benghazi, it had forces in place that could have prevented the deaths of at least some of the men who died there. Not only did it stand by and do nothing, it callously refused to send aid even though the doomed men were requesting it.

    Former Obama aide Rosa Brooks has an interesting article in Foreign Policy magazine analyzing the reasons for the dismal performance of the Obama regime in foreign policy. While accurate she misses the central point. It is said A’s hire A’s and B’s hire C’s. Now we’re seeing what C’s and D’s hire.

    Three years after the Fort Hood shooting the administration still insists upon classifying the obvious terror attack as “work place violence.” This craven duplicity deprives the survivors and the families of the deceased eligibility for awards for valor and for compensation allowed to terrorism victims. One has to wonder why.

    Kevin Drum Beclowns Himself Covering For Obama


    Kevin Jones at Mother Jones has posted a ridiculous apologia for the grotesque series of lies told by Obama and his minions to cover their incompetence leading up to the Benghazi attack.
