State of the Union Address

State of the Union — What You Won’t Hear Tonight

January 24, 2012

The President will give his third State of the Union address tonight at 9pm EST.  It will be filled with poll-tested decisive-sounding promises of new entitlements, he may take a shot at his prospective opponents, he’ll definitely hit Congress and remind us of his order to kill Osama Bin Laden, and he’ll lie about his [...]

SOTU Anti-Bounce?

January 27, 2011

It remains to be seen where the numbers will play out, but thus far they are not looking good for Barack Obama.  As of Tuesday night, before the State of the Union, Obama had a 52% approval, 47% disapproval rating, with an approval index of -5.  Today, which incorporates 33% of respondents post-SOTU and 66% [...]

State of the Union Not Playing Well With America

January 26, 2011

First, let me say that snap polls are somewhat useless.  They are un-scientific and do not have good enough samples to accurately portray anything.  Second, they are usually put out only by unreliable polling outfits (SeeBS and CNN, for example).  What is more important and meaningful will be polls out later this week from reputable [...]

Obama’s Spending Freeze is the Same Old, Same Old…

January 25, 2011

In tonight’s State of the Union Address (join us tonight beginning at 8:45 PM EST for liveblog coverage), President Obama is expected to propose a five-year spending freeze for non-defense discretionary spending.  Such a freeze, while a good baby step, will do nothing to reign in the spending spree that Congress has been on since [...]

Ryan’s Take on the State of the Union Address

January 28, 2010

I didn’t like it. Pretty succinct, huh?! Aside from the obvious liberal crap and fake platitudes, here’s what I really didn’t like:  Obama’s Chavez-like qualities shown through a few times last night.  The way he immaturely called out the Supreme Court with a poor, populist, and inaccurate argument, knowing they couldn’t respond lest Joe Wilson-like [...]

Climate Gate Scientists Broke the Law

January 28, 2010

Climate Gate scientists responsible for forging the data involved in the climate change hoax also broke the law, according to Britain’s Information Commissioner’s Office.  By refusing to hand over source data when requested, the commissioner found that the climate scientists at the University of East Anglia violated Britain’s Freedom of Information Act.  These revelations came [...]

Bob McDonnell – The Real Story of the State of the Union

January 28, 2010

Quick recap of the State of the Union -a long, boring speech in which Obama dug in his heels and attacked Bush.  I don’t think he came across well, and came off as a schoolteacher scolding his students.  Not the image people want in a President.  I don’t see this speech as a plus for [...]

Bob McDonnell to Deliver GOP State of the Union Response

January 21, 2010

The new Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, Bob McDonnell has been selected to deliver the GOP response to the State of the Union address in February.  While some were hoping for Scott Brown, McDonnell is a solid choice and one of the GOP’s rising stars.  His campaign for Governor was a great example of [...]

I Knew Theodore Roosevelt and Senator, You’re No TR!

July 13, 2008

Well, the first part of that isn’t entirely true, but I did spend fifteen months writing a rather long historiographical thesis on Theodore Roosevelt back in college.  In that work I used some of John McCain’s campaign rhetoric from early 2000 as evidence of TR’s increasing influence amongst politicians of both parties today (I also quoted [...]
