The Rush Strategy

Limbaugh: The Truth Detector Obama and company have zeroed in on their number one enemy, and the man they consider to be the nation’s premier demagogue: Rush Limbaugh. What is Rush’s crime? Apparently, it’s that he is vocal about his disagreements with Obama’s policies—and that nearly 20 million people listen to him daily. Obama’s strategists, which include some of the worst characters from the Clinton years such as James Carville and Paul Begala, have decided that the Republican party will… Read more »

The Blind Leading the Blind?

Between election day and Obama’s inauguration, the stock market dropped about 1000 points. Between his inauguration and today, the market has dropped another 1000 points. Somebody is not inspiring confidence. Why this amazing lack of confidence? If your only solution to a financial crisis is to spend more money [which, by the way, ultimately comes from the taxpayers—the ones you ostensibly are trying to help], and the result is to put the government into deeper debt than at any time… Read more »

Administration Attacks on Pro-Life Continue

The Obama administration continues its war against pro-lifers on two fronts. According to the Los Angeles Times: Taking another step into the abortion debate, the Obama administration today [Monday, March 2] will move to rescind a controversial rule that allows healthcare workers to deny abortion counseling or other family planning services if doing so would violate their moral beliefs, according to administration officials. So if Obama gets his way, no pro-life doctor or nurse will be able to opt out… Read more »

New Take on the Reagan Era

In tandem with my previous post about the wisdom expressed by Reagan in his “Evil Empire” speech, I thought this political cartoon effectively captured the new administration’s feelings about all things Reagan.

The Reagan Perspective

One of my students asked me this week if the Obama administration would do so much damage to the country that there would be no hope of repairing it after he leaves office. I was of two minds as I tried to answer. First, I think the potential damage is so staggering that America might not ever recover. The massive debt, the inevitable leftist court appointments, the unrestricted access to abortion [which has begun already], and the stamp of approval… Read more »

Truly Uncharted Territory

This has become staggering beyond belief. What am I talking about? The same thing everyone is talking about these days—the amount of money being spent [and at such a rapid pace] by the federal government. It all began, of course, in the Bush administration with the $700 billion bank bailout. Obama added another $787 billion for a stimulus package that won’t stimulate anything but government size and scope. Now another $400+ billion has passed Congress, a bill so loaded with… Read more »

That Pesky Old Constitution

Congress is on the verge of doing something unconstitutional. Okay, I know that’s not a “stop the presses” comment. Congress has been doing unconstitutional things on an increasing scale since the New Deal. This one, though, is so blatant that it rises to a new level. The latest push is to give Washington, DC, a voting congressman. According to the Constitution, only states can have representation in the House. DC is a special creation, the home of the federal government, and… Read more »
