Obama’s daddy problem
Liberal writers like Maureen Dowd are fond of bloviating about the psychological underpinnings of Republican presidents, especially Bush I and II. O.K., since Obama’s father was, shall we say, “emotionally absent” (among other things), let’s use his other daddy, you know, Jeremiah “Chickens” Wright. This hateful man has left a rich and pungent trail of recorded evidence and testimony on which to base his likely | Read More »
“The rich do or don’t do so and so – so what?!
Thomas Sowell recently wrote a couple of articles entitled “A Cynical Process” parts One and Two. He concludes the second thusly: “At the local level as well, history shows that some of the most successful politicians have been people who ruined the local economy and chased job-creating businesses away. Mayor Coleman Young of Detroit in the 1970s and 1980s was not worried when affluent whites began | Read More »
Why we fight the red herring
Left wing academics cum politicians are great at the art of misdirection and Obama is nothing if not an academic/politician – a poor one, but one nonetheless. So why do so many voters keep on believing him? He would dispute it, but his contention that, say, The Heritage Foundation is only concerned about tax cuts for the rich is right out of the Communist Manifesto. He believes conservative think tanks, as | Read More »
Obama Redux: What record?
Let’s see…Bush ’43 was castigated by the dino media for a whopping 4% unemployment rate. Lately, one rarely hears of the ‘O’ man’s killa’ 10% rate in the lame-media. G.W.’s economy was growing at a “languid” avg. of 3.3 % (first three years,) yet MSNBC is “optimistic” about Obama’s 1.8 % in the first quarter. G.W. was lambasted by members of his own party as a “big spender” | Read More »
Palin or Bachmann, Vol. II
However, playing the devil’s advocate, let us say that Palin is out for the time being. We still have Michele Bachmann and a host of other attractive and qualified conservative women who can run (an explanation for why “looks” are important will be forthcoming.) If Hillary runs, we will lose with Mitt Romney. We have to run a woman if the Dems do in order to | Read More »
With all due respect to Star Parker
RedState contributor “Beaglescout” quoted Star Parker in one of his comments as saying: “Republicans need to wake up [and see] that the conservative message that supposedly defines their party is a message that blacks badly need. But they aren’t going to sell it to them as long as blacks do not feel comfortable pulling the lever for Republicans. Republicans leaders should be using air time | Read More »
Just as Jefferson’s phrase, “…all men are created equal…” referred to certain inalienable rights and therefore equal opportunity, his “…wall of separation between church and state…” (not found in the Declaration or Constitution I hasten to add) was simply an assurance that one denomination would not be favored over another at the federal level. Yet, both have been perverted by leftist weenies to mean something entirely different. | Read More »
Fire in the Sky
Oh, so now Barry wants the intel community to connect the dots. Let’s see what he has done to encourage and/or facilitate this: * His AG, Eric Holder, is now attempting to prosecute former (and present) CIA agents who were trying desperately to connect the dots * He is allowing KSM AND Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab to lawyer up, which will keep the most needed dots from | Read More »
