Should Obama Dump Biden?

August 16, 2012

With a flurry of recent Joe Biden gaffes, John McCain repeated some buzz about Obama potentially replacing Biden with another Vice Presidential nominee.  White House Propaganda Minister press secretary Jay Carney responded that Joe is indeed staying on the ticket, then proceed to attack McCain’s pick of Sarah Palin.  McCain said he wasn’t sure if [...]

D-Day Prayer at WWII Memorial Stymied by Administration

November 6, 2011

I was greatly disappointed to learn years ago that the World War II Memorial would be the first major DC memorial absent any reference to God.  I believe that it speaks ill of our hyper-sensitive politically correct ruling-class culture;  even nowadays since God is also absent from MLK’s recently dedicated memorial. However, if there was [...]

Oh That Woeful Economy!

June 1, 2011

Wall Street generally doesn’t like bad news and today it got some:  manufacturing’s down, the private sector only created about 38,000 jobs, and with new unemployment stats due on Friday, this could be a bummer of a week. But I don’t worry about Wall Street so much anymore.  When a possible misprint of a “b” [...]

Who’s Your Favorite President?

February 19, 2011

In honor of President’s Day, Gallup has compiled a Presidential ranking list.  Guess who’s on top?  Ronald Reagan is with 19% of the vote — followed by Lincoln and… um… Bill Clinton.  Washington comes in fifth place and even Obama gets 5%, beating out Truman, Jefferson and Eisenhower.  So, obviously, this is merely a popularity [...]

January 7, 2011

December’s unemployment numbers were released today and on the surface the direction looks positive:  we’re down to 9.4% unemployment from 9.8% in November.  Good news. The bad news is that much of the decline is due to people simply dropping out of their job search altogether.  When the popular “U3″ number changes its denominator, sometimes [...]

FDR’s Legacy 65 Years Later

April 12, 2010

Two critical things happened in American history today:  the first is that today marks the 149th anniversary of the Confederate attack on Fort Sumter, SC, which began the Civil War in 1861.  Seven states had already seceded and four others were about to go as well, leading to the largest trauma in our nation’s history. [...]

Heading Towards Depression?

July 24, 2009

The talk on Wall Street lately is that we are heading towards a slow economic recovery.  Many indicators are showing signs of improvement, although most agree that the recovery will be long and difficult.  Yet, some analysis believe that the signs are being read incorrectly, and that we are actually heading towards an economic depression. [...]

A “Right” to Health Care

July 22, 2009

That seems to be the mantra from the Left as we go through this first of the many Obamacare battles:  health care is a “right.”  Let’s be real about this:  until at least January 2011, Obama and the Left will not stop until something crosses his desk.  Our challenge is to slow them down or shrink [...]

Blame Reagan? Not So Fast!

June 9, 2009

Nope, I’m not surprised.  New York Slimes lackey Paul Krugman blamed Ronald Reagan for the deregulation that led to the current economic crisis last week.  Obviously, that’s ridiculous and others have chimed in to refute that claim.   I hear that same kind of argument every three seconds from Kool-Aid drinking Democrats out here in Jersey — [...]

GM Fails: “Government Motors” Looms

May 30, 2009

Word on the street is that GM is going to finally declare bankruptcy, which they should have done months and billions of bailout dollars ago.  The Obama Nation will control 72.5% of the company, while stakeholders have been pressured into settling for 25%.  Of course, all of this has been done for two reasons: 1)  keeping the [...]

Criminalizing Politics is a Dangerous Idea

April 21, 2009

We are traveling down a very dangerous road.  President Obama has indicated that actions taken during a time of grave crisis in our nation’s history are up for selective legal prosecution.  The dangerous precedent would be this — criminalizing the decisions of one administration once another party assumes control.  Think of our history to this point:  Jefferson did [...]

Newt’s Response to Congress’ Debacle

February 14, 2009

The Stimulus Package is going to be law by Tuesday.  We all knew from November 4th that we weren’t going to win many battles.  This is no exception, in fact it’s the perfect example:  We tried. We lost.  That’s that.  No use whining anymore;  it’s happened.  The time has come for action in the arena [...]

Steyn on the Stimulus Bill

February 7, 2009

Mark Steyn, author of the funny yet eerie, America Alone, subbed for Rush Limbaugh for two days this week while Rush was on vacation.  He’s always entertaining on Rush and I wish he’d sub more often.  However, writing a piece in the OC Register, Steyn gives his take on the faltering view of Obama the [...]

Obama’s Solution: “Only Government” Can Save Us

January 8, 2009

The One just gave us a not-so-cheery speech today on the nation’s economic situation and how He will fix our problems through obnoxious levels of government spending since “only government” can fix our problems. So, on the theme of Presidential Inaugurations, we just heard Obama assert his firm belief that the only thing we have to [...]

Repeal Day’s 75!

December 6, 2008

75 years ago yesterday, Americans in their infinite wisdom repealed the Eighteenth Amendment ban on alcohol.  Some came to call the anniversary of December 5, 1933, “Repeal Day” so that we could celebrate the joys of being able to celebrate more fully in a free society! The 18th Amendment was the only Constitutional Amendment in [...]

Obama is Lincoln and FDR, and He Isn’t Even President Yet

November 8, 2008

It’s only been four days since we elected Barack Obama to be the 44th President of the United States, and already the Associated Press is already in full-blown exaggeration mode.  According to an “analysis” by Deb Riechmann (interesting name considering where this post is going), the crisis Obama will face when he takes office is [...]

A Lot of Talk About Reagan Today

October 22, 2008

What to do with Ronald Wilson Reagan?  Some nowadays call the Reagan Revolution dead.  The Forbes piece I linked too has so many holes in it that it’s hardly worth addressing each point, and obviously was not written by anyone who made it passed PoliSci 202.  Republicans have acted stupid, whiny, impressionable and lately want to be liked [...]

Historians: McCain’s Going to Lose

June 15, 2008

According to this Politico story, historians (mostly liberal ones rooting for Obama I sure) give McCain a small chance of winning in the Fall.  (The rest of this post may seem like a little inside baseball if you’re not an historian.) One historian compared this election to 1932, when FDR trounced Hoover.  Another compared it [...]

McCain and the Republican Party Brand

May 21, 2008

I just read this Politico piece by John Feehery on the Republican Party’s relationship with McCain.  His take is that Bush stalwarts like Hastert, Lott, and Delay are no longer on the scene and McCain, ever the frustrating maverick, is now the presumptive GOP nominee. Hence, the maverick becomes the savior in lieu of the Republican’s crushing Congressional [...]

LA Times Plays Age, Disability Card on McCain

April 24, 2008

While the Democrats are in a locked Pyrrhic duel to the political death, the MSM (represented this time by the LA Times) has run this bigoted hit-piece on John McCain.  It’s really sad that they’ve gone this low, yet it’s hypocritical at the same time. The crux of the argument infers that McCain’s too old, sick [...]
