Valerie Jarrett’s “Facts” Reveal the Big Plan

October 29, 2013

Some voices have argued that the real intention of Obamacare was to lay the foundation for an eventual single-payer health care system.  This isn’t a secret — the left implies that very point often! However, the only way that happens is if Obamacare creates the conditions for a government takeover.  That’ll mean introducing chaos into [...]

The Sad Case of the Woman Behind the DC Car Chase

October 4, 2013

Miriam Carey was shot and killed by Capitol police yesterday.  Carey was involved in a chaotic car chase on the Hill after she tried to breach a barrier at the White House.  A one-year-old girl was in the car at the time.  Carey was a 34-year-old dental hygienist working in Stamford CT.   She may [...]

US Economy as Bad as It Feels

January 30, 2013

Data was released today indicating that the economy contracted 0.1% in the fourth quarter of 2012.  This signals the first time the economy actually shrank since the second quarter of 2009.  If it shrinks in the first quarter of this year, we’ll be officially in a recession.  Regardless, I don’t trust much out of this [...]

Secession Advocates Get Their Response From DC

January 13, 2013

I hope that all those secession petitions sent to the White House are merely symbolic, and that the people involved don’t think seriously about it.  If so, they are just as bad as the statists who want to ignore the constitutional process for their own ends.  In a re-airing of a 150-year-old settled argument, the [...]

Trillion Dollar Coins. Seriously?

January 6, 2013

New York Democrat Representative Jerry Nadler and others are supporting the idea of the Treasury minting a trillion dollar platinum coin a few times and merely depositing them at the Federal Reserve so as to avoid a debate over the fiscal cliff.  What could go wrong! How did a rule mostly used for the creation [...]

Obama Locked Out

March 24, 2011

President Obama decided to extend his foreign trip, today, by making a rare appearance in America (haven’t heard that one fifty times today!).  However, not all the doors were open: Let the metaphors run wild!

Emanuel Leaves the Obama White House

October 1, 2010

When I heard Rahm Emanuel was leaving the Obama White House as Chief of Staff before Election Day and at roughly around the same time as other administration officials I could only think of one thing — Rahm’s most infamous quote: Looks like Rahm is taking advantage of the President’s economic credibility crisis potentially all [...]

BP Oil Plug — So Far So Good

July 17, 2010

It’s been nearly 48 hours since BP’s latest attempt to plug the leak stopped the gushing.  So, far so good on stopping the leak, but more tests are coming which may include letting the oil flow again to test the pressure. In the meantime, President Obama has been rigorously working on his golf game and [...]

Happy President’s Day

February 15, 2010

Every year we take a day to pay homage to our 44 Presidents on the third Monday in February.  We used to have both Lincoln and Washington’s birthday off, but with the addition of the observance of Martin Luther King’s birthday as a federal holiday in 1983 we meshed the two birthday’s together into President’s [...]

Destroying Presidential Traditions

December 9, 2009

The White House has an age-old tradition of throwing a Christmas Party er, Holiday Gathering, er, mid-December get-together for the press corps, diplomatic officials, and others.  At this get-together, it is traditional for the President and First Lady to host a receiving line, where all the guests are greeted, and have the opportunity to have [...]

“Doctoring” a Photo-Op

October 6, 2009

Yesterday, the Obama Administration wanted to push the latest incarnation of that flaming bag of crap known as “Health Care Reform” by having some sympathetic doctors in the audience at the White House.  But, without their trademark MD superhero costumes (the white lab coats), we mere plebes wouldn’t be able to tell who was in [...]

Let’s Give ‘em a Standing O

May 5, 2009

Unconscious press bias at its You Tube best!  Though the press briefing room has more informal etiquette rules, it’s an interesting contrast nonetheless, given that the press’ respect for Bush was nearly non-existent, and given that the MSM clearly views Obama as ”too big to fail.”   However, sometimes they did actually stand for Bush.  In this cleverly cut video [...]

Obama Knocks Those with Special Needs

March 21, 2009

Obama’s recent appearance on Leno was supposed to be a public relations fluff gig.  It hasn’t turned out that way.  Obama believes that he has to push his celebrity “cool” factor for some kind of connection with the other half.  Either that or deal with the mess we’re all in.  So, while knocking his ability to [...]

Look Who Showed Up to Lunch

January 7, 2009

From right to left Jimmah, Bubba, Dubya, The Emperor Zero Most High Merciful and Beneficent Lord Barack Hussein Obama, and Bush 41 all had lunch together at the White House today.  This kind of lunch encounter hasn’t happened since Reagan had Nixon, Ford and Jimmah over to chat too back in the day.   Today, the President Club ate [...]

The First Transition Meeting

November 10, 2008

The Chosen One and President Bush met up today at the White House for a tour and a transition meeting at the Oval Office.  Apparently it was Obama’s first time in the Oval Office.  The details of the meeting were not made public (good), but the manner in which the Bushes are behaving has seemed [...]
