Woodward in the Crosshairs

February 28, 2013

Mainstream Media icon Bob Woodward has officially fallen from grace mainly because of this exchange earlier this week: How dare he criticize Dear Leader’s “certain kind of madness!”  What’s worse, Woodward had the audacity to publicly admit that he felt threatened by the Administration’s response to that exchange. Sadly, the Obama Nation must now destroy [...]

Send in the Drones

February 5, 2013

The Obama Administration today is defending their policy of using overseas drone strikes not just on foreign terrorists, but also overseas Americans who help them out.  While the memos revealed flimsy standards governing the President’s discretion on using the drones, they defend the policy as “legal,” “ethical,” and “wise.”  I’m pretty sure this guy shares the [...]

Rand Paul’s Great Week

January 26, 2013

Rand Paul had two opportunities this week to shine and did so brilliantly.  Here was Senator Rand Paul taking it to Hillary Clinton and the administration on Benghazi: Here’s Rand Paul the next day asking John Kerry (who wants to be Secretary of State) to reconcile his support of Obama’s constitutionally suspect actions in Libya, [...]

The Fast and Furious “Executive Privilege” Escalation

June 20, 2012

With hours left for Attorney General Eric Holder to hand over documents to the House Oversight and Government Reforms Committee, the AG played a game-changing card regarding the “Fast and Furious” affair — Holder got his boss, President Obama, to assert “executive privilege” over the documents in question, stymieing Congress’ investigation into the death of [...]

Elena Kagan, Supreme Court Justice?

May 10, 2010

Elena Kagan. What can I say?  At least Harriet Miers seemed like a pleasant lady, despite the thin resume!  The President’s next pick for the Supreme Court is a woman (I wonder if she’s a typical white person), Elena Kagan, who’s never written an opinion, nor has ever been a judge.  Yet, the Left is [...]

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 [...]

Ousting Blago

January 29, 2009

Blago is now the former Governor of Illinois. In a 59-0 vote, the Illinois State Senate sent a message to Rod Blagojevich:  don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out the door!  Don’t worry, every single media outlet within 3000 miles will want to hear Blago’s side of the story — how his trials and [...]

Where Does Obama Stand on Gun Rights?

June 29, 2008

We’ve all seen the video from February where Obama agreed wholeheartedly with the 32-year-old DC gun ban, then when the Supreme Court interpreted the 2nd Amendment to mean what it says last week, he was for that too even though it overturned the 32-year-old DC gun ban. This incident recently reminded me of something my [...]

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 [...]
