RNC Speeches Day 3: Smitten by Mitt

August 31, 2012

The final evening of speeches at the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa capped a solid three days of a pro-American, pro-free market, pro-opportunity political festival.  Hurricane Isaac forced the convention into a three-day affair, but in truth packing all the speeches and events into three days instead of four allowed the message to come [...]

TOTUS Revealed!

August 23, 2012

Obama or TOTUS?  From this angle, it definitely seems like TOTUS.  Not entirely sure though… Regardless, it’s definitely a pic worth adding to the echo chamber.  The GOP should have this picture on signs at the convention. In lieu of that, perhaps they could just broadcast Joe Biden squealing down the street in Tampa in [...]

TOTUS: Lost and Found

October 18, 2011

No need to panic — no need to invoke the 25th Amendment — no need to cancel the 2012 Elections — TOTUS has been found! Some hoodlums decided to steal TOTUS and some sound equipment yesterday, but all is well now:  TOTUS has been recovered and is ready for action. Crisis averted, the nation can [...]

Revenge of TOTUS: The “Michael” Obama Gaffe

October 2, 2011

When you’re married to both an Obamasaurus and a teleprompter life can be pretty tough, especially when the twain shall mix!  I found this goodie at the American Thinker blog.  It’s a beauty.  Go to about 30 seconds on the video and let it play — the President’s gaffe is that he appears to refer [...]

April 14, 2011

As I was preparing to show my students a quick video clip yesterday, President Obama was just beginning his anticipated budget speech.  So, we watched it for a while before moving on.  At first this was the 16-year-olds’ consensus: “Wow, he gives a great speech!” and “Why is he turning his head so often?”  I [...]

Schoen and Caddell to Obama: 1 Term is Enough

November 15, 2010

I’ve learned that whenever Dems speak out of step with convention, always read between the lines. Former Clintonista Doug Schoen and recovering Carterite Pat Caddell, both pollsters, have caused quite a stir with their Washington Post op-ed yesterday:  Obama should do the right thing and announce he’s not running in 2012 because they argue he [...]

It’s Now OK to Make Fun of Obama

January 27, 2010

John Stewart on the Daily Show ripped into Obama recently, picking up on many things that we Conservatives saw early on.  In this clip, Stewart makes fun of Obama’s aloofness, his overuse of the teleprompter, and his inability to relate to average people.  Unlike some Saturday Night Live Obama parodies of recent note, these are [...]

Obama’s Speech on Afghanistan

December 1, 2009

Here’s what I took from the President’s speech tonight on the future of the War in Afghanistan: “The common security of the world is at stake” says the President, but we’re getting out in 18 months because it’s a rather pricey endeavor.  OK, Taliban and al Qaeda types, just wait until July 2011 and start [...]
