Major Garrett’s last question of the Obama presidency

Posted · Add Comment

CBS News’ Major Garrett had a question for President Obama at this morning’s news conference. It’s his last question of the Obama pressidency. For one brief moment, President Obama knew what it was like to be treated like a Republican politician…and he didn’t like it. *Update* And the palace guard strikes back! Science-denier Bill Maher […]

You don't get mad at a dog for being a dog

And you shouldn’t get angry at a lefty hack for being a lefty hack. I don’t blame MIT Economist Jonathan Gruber for this laughable piece of analysis that purports to claim that Obamacare is a net gain to the economy less than a week after the Congressional Budget Office released a report that estimated Obamacare will […]

Why Obamacare is doomed

I posted a link to this article by Chris Conover at Forbes’ Apothecary blog at my “night job” website the other day. If this graphic turns out to be true, then expect Obamacare to go down in flames, taking a lot of Democrats with it. These numbers, if accurate, are devastating. The “losers” category is 55.3 percent […]

What's wrong with Obamacare

To borrow a line from “Best of the Web Today”: Longest blog post ever written. I’m not going to actually try to provide a one-stop post detailing every screw-up surrounding the president’s signature health insurance reform. I’ve spent a lot of time over at my “second job” posting link after link after link to stories […]

On Friday, New York Mayor Nanny Michael Bloomberg introduced a measure that would limit the supply of powerful pain medicine in city-run hospitals in New York City. “The city hospitals we control, so … we’re going to do it and we’re urging all of the other hospitals to do it, voluntary guidelines. Somebody said, oh, […]

World's dumbest argument

Posted · 1 Comment

I was reading some lefty blogs last weekend when I came across the most idiotic argument supporting the Obamacare contraception coverage mandate: That covering contraceptive services actually saves the insurance company money. Seriously? These are the same insurance companies that always have the adjective “greedy” preceding their name. And if they just started covering contraceptives, […]

On the politics

Very briefly, there are some in the blogosphere very desperate to find a silver lining in the nonsensical contortions of Chief Justice John Roberts. The theory goes that Roberts somehow knew that upholding this joke of a tax/not-a-tax law would re-energize the Tea Party, short-circuit an effort by President Obama and his allies on the […]

More thoughts on Obamacare

I encourage you to visit the various legal blogs to get well-reasoned analysis of this morning’s travesty against the Constitution and the English language. As a layman and someone who respects language and words, a few thoughts: I wouldn’t have been so disappointed with today’s ruling if Justice Kennedy had wielded the dagger. So, instead […]

President Obama set to announce bacon compromise

Posted · Add Comment

WASHINGTON, D.C. — After an announcement by the White House last week that all American restaurants would have to serve bacon on their burgers as part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Healthy Living” Initiative provoked outrage from Muslim and Jewish organizations, President Obama is set to announce a compromise at a White House ceremony Monday […]

Unfulfilled promise or lie?

Posted · 1 Comment

Health insurance premiums are climbing, despite President Obama’s promise that if we passed his reform plan they would drop by $2,500 a year for most families. A new study by the Kaiser Family Foundation underlines that many of the promises surrounding President Obama’s health care legislation remain unfulfilled, though the White House argues that change […]
