The embattled Attorney General of the self-proclaimed most transparent administration in America history, Eric Holder, has decided to finally chat with members of the press.  Of course, these conversations will be off the record!

May 16, 2011

America is headed for an economic decline.  What’s that, you say?  We are already in the midst economic slump?  While that seems to be true, the economic data points to the fact that the U.S. economy declined in 2008-2009, remained stagnant throughout most of 2010, and showed some light growth in 2011.  Yet there are [...]

Balanced Budget Amendment

February 4, 2010

Some members of the GOP in the House are introducing a balanced budget amendment, which would prohibit the federal government from running an annual deficit.  While it doesn’t have a chance in hell, the GOP would be wise to make noise about this, and call Obama and the Democrats to take a stand on it, [...]

Irony in Moving Gitmo Prisoners to Illinois

January 7, 2010

It is always fun when something ironic happens to prove how stupid liberal policies are.  Take for example the snowstorms and record cold temperatures that seem to follow the Global Warming nuts around, culminating in a freak-blizzard in Copenhagen during the world climate summit.  Well, the a similar irony (this one far more dangerous) occured [...]

The Stimulus Slush Fund Spending Money in Places That Don’t Exist

January 4, 2010

I’ve said all along that the Obama administration would be nothing more than Chicago thug politics, mob rule meets the White House, and that the stimulus porkulus was nothing but a Democrat slush-fund.  Well, Stimulus reporting is now resembling a classic money-laundering scheme.  It seems that the same agency that reports on how many jobs [...]

Obama Is Insanity Defined

December 9, 2009

A classic definition of insanity is repeating the same action over and over again, expecting different results.  Obama is insanity defined.  His much-touted stimulus (a.k.a. Porkulus) package purported to spend money on roads and bridges, give some tax breaks to small businesses (although they were tax breaks designed to produce a liberal policy objective, not [...]

Obama’s Team Lacks Private Sector Experience

December 1, 2009

Liberals and Conservatives have a fundamental difference in philosophy when it comes to private sector vs. public sector.  Liberals laud the public sector as the savior of America (the government being the solution to all problems) while Conservatives look at government as a necessary evil, and aim to keep it as limited as possible while [...]

America’s Reputation In The World

October 26, 2009

Obama campaigned on the idea of restoring America’s reputation in the world.  What he failed to mention at the time was that he was trying to restore the Carter-era reputation of American being an unreliable partner.  Two cases this weekend illustrate that. First, French President Nicolas Sarkozy is growing increasingly frustrated with Obama and his [...]

The Next Shoe To Drop

September 30, 2009

As we all know, the beginning of last year’s recession was triggered by a series of events, including the failure of two quasi-government agencies, Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac, precipitated by the over-abundance of sub-prime mortgages given to people who had no capability of paying them back.  A year later, it appears that we have [...]

Smears And Intimidation: How Chicago Thugs Take Out The Opposition

August 6, 2009

Much of Obama still remains a mystery to me.  Yes, he is a far-left radical who is a thug from the Chicago Political Machine.  Yes, he wants to remake America in his own image.  Yes, he is an egotistical maniac who wants nothing but adoration from throngs of followers.  Yet I keep vacillating back and [...]

Is This Obama’s “Read My Lips” Moment?

“Read My Lips.  NO NEW TAXES.”  This was one of George H.W.

Fox News Smackdown

June 24, 2009

No wonder President Obama doesn’t like Fox News.  They are the only media outlet doing their jobs by asking tough questions of the one on a consistent basis.  At yesterday’s press conference (which admittedly contained more substinative questions than Obama’s last press conference; there were no “what excites you, what humbles you” type questions), Major [...]
