They Wanted the President to Fail Too!

March 10, 2009

No, not Rush Limbaugh and gutsy Conservatives on Obama, but 51% of Democrats and 34% of Independents felt that way about President Bush back in August 2006, all while we were still in the heat of ferocious combat on two fronts.  The poll is a decent one of 900 Registered Voters by Fox News/ Opinion Dynamics.  You can’t tell [...]

Thank You, President Bush

January 20, 2009

As the final hours of the Presidency of George W. Bush draw to a close, it is worth taking the time to look at Bush and his legacy.  For all my disagreements with the Bush administration, specifically on domestic policy, I want to take this opportunity to thank him.  Since the brutal attacks by the [...]

9/11 Seven Years later

September 11, 2008

9/11/08:  Seven years later Like most on that day seven years ago, I feared planes crashing into buildings and frequent bus and train bombings in our major cities would be things we’d have gotten eerily used to by 2008 – the morbid background noise of our own Jerusalem-style intifada on our own soil.  The future was virtually unknowable even to the [...]

Moqtada al Sadr Ready to Stand Down

August 6, 2008

Little ”Mullah Atari” himself, Moqtada al Sadr, has signaled that the various factions of Sadr’s Madhi Army will put down their guns and become glorified ”community organizers” who will help rebuild Iraq when (or if) he issues his dictates this Friday. Something that the above article brings home is the flood of good news out of Iraq lately:  [...]

We’re Not an Obama Nation Yet, But Try Telling That to His Campaign!

July 22, 2008

One of the major themes of Obama’s trip abroad has been trying to make him look Presidential.  In all the pomp and circumstance surrounding the trip, Obama’s people sometimes forget that he, in fact, is not yet President.  Also, sometimes they have to be reminded of that little detail a second time on the same [...]

Global Warming’s Fried President Bush

April 16, 2008

The Global Warming alarmists have finally worn down the GOP passed the weak-kneed crowd, and into the Bush-crowd (which is increasingly looking like only Dubya himself).  Only the open-minded, conservative-wing remains as the firewall against an economic cataclysm based on ever-changing scientific data.  It goes to show how all Libs need to do is find an issue [...]

Papa Bene!

April 15, 2008

Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to the United States began today at Andrew’s Air Force Base in Maryland.  He met President Bush, Laura and Jenna along with a throng of cheering crowds and fanfare.  He also clearly denounced the pedophilia scandals that have rocked the Roman Catholic Church over the last decade or so.  Great start [...]

Supreme Court Smacks Bush, Mexicans, World Court

March 25, 2008

The Supreme Court voted 6-3 today to strike down President Bush’s adherence to a 1963 International Treaty where aliens caught committing a crime must be aware that they are entitled to legal counsel/advice when tried in American courts.  In today’s case, Medellin v. Texas (2008), the defendant argued that he was not made aware of this detail after his arrest (even though he [...]

Osama Has Bin Relevant, Not So Much Anymore

March 19, 2008

How the mighty have fallen. In 2001, Osama Bin Laden actively and openly led a sophisticated international terrorist network that was disciplined, organized, well-financed, supported by evil regimes, and successful in carrying out terrorist attacks on American soil. After President Bush responded to the September 11 attack with a multi-pronged strategy including two wars, international [...]
