The Obama Nation, Take 2

January 20, 2013

Today around noon President Obama will be sworn in for a second term as our President, while Joe Biden already took his oath this morning.  Tomorrow, the big party takes place — constitutionally, the official swearing in must take place on January 20, but given that today is Sunday the public ceremony has been moved [...]

Biden: Some Gun Control By Executive Fiat

January 9, 2013

Vice President Joe Biden made it clear today that the President has many options in the upcoming gun control debate saying, “There are executive orders, executive action that can be taken.”  He went on to imply that action is key to getting things done: “it’s critically important that we act.”  The word “action” struck me, [...]

GOP, Boehner Falling Off Their Own Cliff

January 2, 2013

What a mess! In a typical Obama Nation move, the Senate had three minutes to read and vote on a 154-page bill which was immediately sent over to the House and eventually voted on last night.  Obama didn’t even wait to sign it before he was on a plane back to Hawaii — he’ll likely [...]

Clinton Hits Obama Record at Campaign Event

October 18, 2012

Campaigning for Romney Obama with Bruce Springsteen in Ohio today, Bill Clinton said this: Here’s the text, just in case you needed to experience that in another medium: Governor Romney’s argument is ‘we’re not fixed, so fire him and put me in.’ It is true, we’re not fixed. When President Obama looked into the eyes [...]

Ryan Battles Biden Laughs on Way to VP Debate Draw

October 12, 2012

Last night’s Vice Presidential Debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan turned out to be an inkblot debate — when people with a political inclination watched it, they pretty much saw what they wanted to see:  Biden was strong and aggressive… or was he inappropriately arrogant and rude?  Ryan was articulate and competent… or was [...]

Biden vs. Ryan Preview

October 11, 2012

Honestly, I’m not sure what to expect in tonight’s Vice Presidential debate in Danville, Kentucky, between Paul Ryan and Joe Biden.  I suppose Joe Biden was coached all week to avoid gaffes, and take the fight to Ryan.  I suppose Ryan worked on beating back Biden’s inevitable accusations while not coming off as too wonkish. [...]

TOTUS Revealed!

August 23, 2012

Obama or TOTUS?  From this angle, it definitely seems like TOTUS.  Not entirely sure though… Regardless, it’s definitely a pic worth adding to the echo chamber.  The GOP should have this picture on signs at the convention. In lieu of that, perhaps they could just broadcast Joe Biden squealing down the street in Tampa in [...]

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 [...]

Sunsetting the Iraq War

October 22, 2011

The final Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) with Iraq indicated that we would be leaving on December 31, 2011.  While this agreement was arranged in November 2008 with the outgoing Bush Administration, apparently the Obama Administration just read the memo and took little time to brag about how the final withdrawal of forces in Iraq [...]

9.1%… Again

October 7, 2011

The first Friday of the month has become Groundhog Day — once again our U3 unemployment is at 9.1%, this time for the month of September.  However, 16.5% of the public is still really out of work.  It’s taking such a toll on the economy and the administration that even Joe Biden noticed, saying: “And [...]

Biden — It’s Our Economy

September 30, 2011

Uh oh!  The gaffe-tastic Vice President Joe Biden has drifted off the reservation once again, this time speaking the truth:  that this economy belongs to the Obama administration and the people have every right to judge them on it going into the 2012 Election. I’m not sure if this is merely a moment of lucidity [...]

Obama Engages Tea Partier

August 16, 2011

While glad-handing yesterday in Iowa, the President had this exchange with some Tea Party folks in the crowd: The Fox people technically had it right:  while never saying the Tea Party “acted like terrorists” on the record, it’s hard to imagine the gaffe-prone Vice President not saying it in a closed door session with his [...]

Joe Biden’s “Cracked Head”

August 2, 2011

Joe Biden comes with instructions on his label:  open-mouth, insert foot. His latest gaffe regarded Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.  Giffords, who was shot in the head on January 8, returned to DC to take a vote on the crap sandwich debt bill.  Here’s coverage of that moment. Before the vote, however, Joe Biden met with [...]

Obama’s Budget Response Closes Eyes, Turns Stomachs

April 14, 2011

As I was preparing to show my students a quick video clip yesterday, President Obama was just beginning his anticipated budget speech.  So, we watched it for a while before moving on.  At first this was the 16-year-olds’ consensus: “Wow, he gives a great speech!” and “Why is he turning his head so often?”  I [...]

Gaffetastic Smart Ass Joe Biden Strikes Again!

June 27, 2010

Joe Biden’s been publicly quiet lately (probably by dictate), but the other day he had an unscripted moment at an ice cream custard shop when the manager told him that the custard would be on the house if he lowered their taxes!  Later, Biden called him a “smart ass” in jest, but you know he [...]

Why the Filibuster is Important

February 25, 2010

There has been a lot of talk lately on ending the filibuster.  Democrats have proposed ending the 60-vote cloture threshold as well as the idea of pushing sweeping controversial legislation through via reconciliation.  The filibuster is an important institution in our nation and needs to be preserved.  But don’t take my word for it, take [...]

Biden Tries to Lecture Scott Brown on Military Tribunals

February 15, 2010

Newly-elected Senator Scott Brown (R-MA; yes, it still feels good to say that) is involved in a war of words with the Obama Administration’s court jester, Vice President Joe Biden.  Joe Biden suggested on Face the Nation this weekend that Brown didn’t know what he was talking about when it came to military tribunals, stating [...]

Joe Biden, Easer of Tension

January 22, 2010

Saw this AP headline while perusing the news: “Biden in Iraq to Help Ease Pre-Election Tensions.”  Do they figure that Biden’s constant gaffes will provide some comic relief to the people of Iraq, thus easing said tensions?  Why else send him?

A Snapshot of Two Polls

July 9, 2009

It’s the first full week of July and there are some political trends worth checking out.  Usually the summer is very slow news time since so many people are on vacation or otherwise busy enjoying what summer has to offer.  However, with Cap-and-Trade, Obamacare, and Tea Parties galore, both June and July have already been [...]

Neda, the New “Voice” of Iran

June 22, 2009

A young woman, Neda Soltan, (whose name means “voice” or “calling”) was protesting with her dad on Saturday when she was shot in the chest by the basij, the plain-clothed Iranian secret police.  Video of her death has leaked out and spread across the Internet and some of the protest leaders have called for Thursday to be [...]

Biden vs. the Obamaprompter

May 27, 2009

Barry can’t be watching Vice President Biden every minute of everyday.  I really enjoy Biden’s gaffes.  I also really enjoy how, at an unscripted moment when his teleprompter got knocked over by the wind, Biden picked on his boss: “What am I going to tell the President when I tell him his teleprompter is broken?

Steven Crowder on Rain Man Joe Biden

April 2, 2009

It’s Thursday!  That means its time for another Steven Crowder video.  This week, Crowder bemoans the fact that media bias is really depriving the American people of comedy gold.  Well, we’re not deprived.  We follow Steven Crowder. He mentions three Biden gaffes that we “probably haven’t heard” but actually have.  That’s because we follow politics.  [...]

Biden’s Rhetoric vs. Jindal’s Results

February 26, 2009

Bobby Jindal’s response to Obama’s pseudo State of the Union address may have been more effective than the pundits give him credit for.  Why else would the White House send out Vice President Joe Biden to try to undermine Jindal’s credibility?  According to the Vice President, people shouldn’t take Jindal’s arguments about the proper size [...]

Joe, You Gaffe-tastic Rube!

January 22, 2009

Here’s Joe Biden today at the swearing-in of the new White House staff, making a crack at Chief Justice Roberts’ gaffe at the Inauguration.  However, Big Barry O was NOT happy as Joe made his own gaffe!  Watch: Remember this one?  “STAND UP ,CHUCK!”  Umm… wheelchair-bound Chuck Graham might have a problem with that, Joe. If [...]

Hillary Clinton.  Says Jill Biden: Joe had the choice [...]

November 5, 2008

Boy, that didn’t take long.  Obama gets elected President, and we are already seeing Vice-President Elect Joe Biden’s prediction of a pending international crisis coming true.  Russian President President Dmitry Medvedev announced today that Russia would be deploying missiles along the Polish boarder in response to our deployment of missile defense in Poland.  At the same [...]

Today is election day, andarack  it is important to everyone to get out and vote.  Today’s vote is the only poll that matters, so don’t let any polls, predictions, or pundits get you down.  Just to boost confidence a bit, the polls have been wrong before, and can be wrong again.  In 1980 (hat tip [...]

Krauthammer Casts His Early Ballot

October 24, 2008

In his latest column, the syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer endorses John McCain for President.  I love his column partially because he picks on the lily-livered, weak-kneed RINOs who are prematurely giving up or even jumping ship.  Then he makes a few simple points:  the economy will return to normal like it always eventually does, Obama was dead wrong on the Surge [...]

The latest Joe Biden gaffe is as follows: “Mark my words… it will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you [...]
