A complete and total lack of self-awareness

I cannot make this stuff up. President Obama at his birth certificate unveiling this morning: "We've got enormous challenges ahead of us," he said. "We have to make a series of very difficult decisions about how we invest in our future but also get ahold of the deficit and debt," he said. "But we're not […]

Sharia-compliant Dearborn

Let me preface this by stating a few facts. Terry Jones is a jackass of little note who shouldn’t have a gun. If the media behaved responsibly rather than ginning up controversy, no one would’ve heard of the guy. The media is using Jones to once again portray Christians as instigators and Muslims as victims.

It’s Bush’s fault I’m sure

Candidate Barack Obama on the evil of signing statements: That was then President Barack Obama upon signing the continuing resolution for the remainder of FY2011.

How’s that hopey-changey thing working for you?

Wow. Just wow. I saw some clips of President Obama’s speech and read the text. The speech is probably the most dishonest and demagogic speech I’ve seen since Moammar Gaddafhi gave that one a few weeks back. First from ABC News’ Jake Tapper: President Obama at the GOP House retreat, January 2010: “We're not going […]

More media bias

Usually media bias in straight news stories is a rather subtle affair. This example, from The New York Times Monday paper isn't so subtle. (via Timeswatch) The Republican plan includes a shrinking of Medicare and Medicaid and trillions of dollars in tax cuts, while sparing defense spending. Mr. Obama, by contrast, envisions a more comprehensive […]

Nuts and bolts, nuts and bolts

Yeah, you know the next line. It looks like the corrupt party has once again outfoxed the stupid party (as Democratic strategist Pat Caddell likes to characterize them) once again up on Capitol Hill. For example, the final cuts in the deal are advertised as $38.5 billion less than was appropriated in 2010, but after […]

The real debate begins

Last Friday, John Boehner and the House GOP managed to drag Harry “Cowboy Poet” Reid and President Obama into about $40 billion in spending cuts for the remainder of the fiscal year. How’s this for a pivot? Harry Reid, Feb. 3, 2011, on Paul Ryan’s initial offer of $32 billion in spending cuts: The chairman […]
