Last night Barack Obama claimed that he had attributed the Benghazi attack to terrorism. This is a shameless lie. Both the video and the transcript prove Obama blamed the Mohammed video and “senseless violence.”
Wind turbrine Vestas announced 800 layoffs yesterday and A123, an battery manufacturer for electric cars, filed for bankruptcy today. Both have received hundreds of millions of dollars in corporate welfare in the form of tax credits, loan guarantees, and grants. They are not unique, they are merely the latest examples of what happens when the federal government tries to choose winners and losers in the marketplace.
Instead of fostering democracy, the Obama regime has carried out a strategy of appeasement when confronted with opposition from totalitarians. Vladimir Putin has effectively broken Obama to his will and Obama and Ukraine is about to be drawn into Russia’s orbit.
With its false attack on mine workers who support Mitt Romney, the Obama regime has increased its reputation as a petty, thin skinned ineptocracy who would resort to political thuggery if they could figure out how to do it.
In today’s New York Times, Ross Douthat tries to understand why the Obama regime has lied so shamelessly and incoherently over the attacks on our Benghazi consulate. He overlooks the obvious: this regime always turns to the lie any time it is under stress and the atmospherics of admitting it had turned Libya over to al Qaeda for a short term political gain.
Barack Obama has a new ad out letting us all know just how tough the job is and explaining that even though he has accomplished less than nothing it is vital that he be reelected. In the process he accomplishes a new first in the category of presidents.
David Chalian was fired as Washington Bureau Chief for YahooNews because of his view, inadvertently broadcast, that Republicans “are happy to have a party with black people drowning.” In a just world, Mr. Chalian would never work in another newsroom. Now he has been hired by Poliitco.
After Joe Biden’s surreal performance in the vice presidential debate Thursday night, the White House had to devote a substantial amount of time Friday making Biden’s exotic statements comport with even the White House’s tenuous relationship with the truth.
Last night in the Vice Presidential debate, America’s Rain Man, Joe Biden made a rather astonishing claim about the Obamacare mandate that martyrs religious freedom in favor of sexual gratification: “With regard to the assault on the Catholic Church, let me make it absolutely clear. No religious institution—Catholic or otherwise, including Catholic social services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy hospital, any hospital—none has to either refer contraception, | Read More »
In the wake of the disastrous attacks on American interests in North Africa on 9/11/2012, the Obama regime seems to have engaged in a calculated policy of disinformation to hide the magnitude of their failure from the Congress and the public. Now, in an attempt to keep the lie alive, they are claiming they were ill-served by the US intelligence community.
When Barack Obama came to power he was rightfully perceived as a very weak man. In an effort to bolster his image, his regime went about knocking over doddering, toothless autocrats as a way of proving his toughness. They didn’t give much thought to who would succeed them. Now we know.
A writer to the Washington Post complains that Mitt Romney’s frugality is actually a character flaw. As the writer is a Maryland Democrat, that tells you all you need to know about the writer’s tenuous contact with fiscal sanity, but a deeper look indicates that Romney’s example could help the federal government.
On paper, Paul Ryan should have a fairly easy time against an unaccomplished and not very bright Joe Biden. Unfortunately, Joe Biden is prone to just making up stuff to win arguments. He did it to Sarah Palin and if Paul Ryan isn’t careful it will happen to him.
