State of the Union

Noonan on the DC/America Divide

January 31, 2014

So, how long did it take you to change the channel during Tuesday night’s State of the Union address?  After Obama channeled his inner Paul Harvey with folksy tales of “real” Americans, he started his regular banter not caring about the accuracy of his statements because (let’s face it) most of those watching weren’t going [...]

A Thirst for More Rubio

February 13, 2013

I made it through literally four minutes of President Obama’s State of the Union speech last night before my gag reflex kicked-in, prompting me to watch something else.  I did catch the news round-up of its contents this morning — more progressive liberal bull crap.  However, I was interested in seeing Marco Rubio give the [...]

The Government’s “Paying-For” Problem

February 12, 2013

Does America have a spending problem? Yup.  Here’s about 16,522,000,000,000 or so indications that we do. That won’t stop ideologues like House Democrat Steny Hoyer saying things like this: Seriously, a “paying-for problem?”  They think we’re stupid — with good reason at times. For more silliness, just listen to tonight’s State of the Union Address!

“National Greatness Liberalism”

January 28, 2011

Reading a Weekly Standard piece this morning criticizing Obama’s SOTU as hidebound 1960s bilge, I came across a phrase I hadn’t noticed before, “national greatness liberalism”, which was how some libs view Obama’s underlying approach.  After seeing those three words in such an order I had a good laugh!  I figured why don’t they just [...]

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% [...]

Palin Slams Liberal Obama and His WTF Slogan

January 27, 2011

In yesterday’s fantastic column on the State of the Union, Ann Coulter managed to work in a dig against John McCain’s 2008 campaign when she criticized the Maverick for his excessive cooperation with the left: You knew it was bad when John McCain leapt up and enthusiastically applauded. The last time I saw McCain applaud [...]

Michele Bachmann’s Tea Party Response

January 26, 2011

Last night we heard a 62-minute campaign speech Obama gave to the nation saying little more than expressing mere platitudes, proclaiming empty promises, while hearkening back to Sputnik and Thomas Edison for some reason. As has been the tradition, the party out of the White House gives a response to the State of the Union [...]

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 [...]

Bi-Partisan Seating Plan is Crap Symbolism at its Worst

January 14, 2011

Gag me.  After the tragic shooting in Arizona, the calls from the state-run media are to “calm the rhetoric” and “can’t we just all get along?”  You see, the state-run Media, in its infinite wisdom and supreme knowledge, has decided that the horrible actions of a lone shooter, which had absolutely nothing to do with [...]

Justice Roberts Stands Up for SCOTUS

March 11, 2010

Word came yesterday that Chief Justice John Roberts was upset about the treatment the Justices got from both Congress and the President at January’s State of the Union Address, questioning even whether or not SCOTUS should really even show up anymore.  Here’s my opinion about that address and the treatment of the court who are [...]

Don’t Underestimate Obama

February 2, 2010

Watching the performance of Obama and the Democrats this past year, it’s easy to get complacent and assume that 2010 and 2012 are wrapped up.  What we as conservatives fail to see is that Obama does still appeal to a segment of the population, even if they don’t like his policies.  Case in point:  on [...]

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 [...]

Spendaholic President to Propose “Spending Freeze”

January 26, 2010

President Obama is planning to announce a three year freeze in discretionary spending at the upcoming State of the Union.  The President’s supporters and the mainstream media (Department of Redundancy Department I know) will undoubtedly fawn over the proposal as a return to fiscal responsibility.  They won’t tell the entire story though.  Like so many [...]
