Uphold and defend what?

HHS Secretary and former Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius swore an oath to protect and uphold the Constitution. Since then, it’s apparently been out of sight, out of mind. Wow, just wow. It’s the final portion of this exchange that’s the most telling. When deciding to mandate that religious employers and institutions violate their consciences when […]

Promoting voter fraud

Reuters in its job as Democratic National Committee stenographer had a laughably dishonest story on Saturday about how voter ID laws would be disenfranchising young people. The new laws – many of which include measures requiring voters to show a photo ID at the polls – could carve into Obama’s potential support in Florida, Ohio […]

Back when President Bush was in charge and issuing signing statements the liberal media (but I repeat myself) were in a state of continual shock and dismay at the “lawlessness” of the president’s actions. Sen. Barack Obama as a presidential candidate vowed that he wouldn’t behave as his predecessor had when it came to attempting […]

Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) who is not seeking re-election this […]

You know, it’s one thing for the average rube to buy into the Barack Obama as messiah complex with the idea that he’ll make their house payments for them and buy them their gas. But you’d think that someone as sophisticated as his Harvard Law-trained wife would be a little more inured to the whole […]

The New York Times’ (allegedly conservative) David Brooks is still in full-on bromance mode with President Obama. I’ll just say that my conversations reaffirm my conviction that Obama is a pragmatic liberal who cares about fiscal sustainability, who has been willing to compromise for its sake, but who has not offered anything close to a […]

I get mail

I get solicitations repeatedly from the Barack Obama campaign ever since I signed up for a chance to have dinner with the president without paying tens of thousands of dollars. Most times the e-mails are your typical rah-rah propaganda, but the one I received this morning was just sad. Matthew — The other side thinks […]
