The Obamacare Woes

The Obamacare website failure is probably one of the biggest government fiascos of all time, and that’s saying a lot if you know about the fiascos of the past, primarily on the progressive/liberal side of politics. Those who are on the president’s side, and who never seem to think he should be held accountable for anything, are having a tough time navigating through this current trouble. Maybe you’ve noticed how cranky some of them have become: One way around this… Read more »

Our Foreign Foreign Policy

For most of the Obama tenure, the focus of critics has been on his domestic policies primarily, although The Great American Apology Tour was noted and decried from the start. From his abysmal attempts to jumpstart the economy to the imposition of the bureaucratic nightmare of Obamacare, this president has demonstrated his ideological blindness and his incomparable incompetence. Both of those features have now come to the forefront in his foreign policies as well. Which is worse? They appear to… Read more »

Unbelievably Small Leaders

President Obama spoke to the nation last night about the Syrian crisis. It wasn’t the speech that was anticipated earlier in the week. Russia threw him a lifeline by saying Syria is open to the idea of turning over its chemical weapons to the UN. This will now lead us . . . where? Promises, delays, more promises, more delays, weapons inspections that go nowhere, etc., etc., etc. Haven’t we seen all this before? So after more than a week… Read more »

One Clinton Was Bad Enough

Congress is in recess, so there have been no hearings recently on the multitude of scandals that have become the hallmark of the Obama administration. That will change. The question is whether most people will be aware of the renewed scrutiny; there is a concerted effort by the Democrat/media machine to keep these all-too-real scandals muted: They are particularly eager to put Benghazi to rest; if the whole truth comes to light on that one, it could derail a certain… Read more »

Real Scandals, Legitimate Investigations

The Obama administration has found its latest theme. We’re hearing it from spokesperson Jay Carney and the president himself. Carney dismisses all questions about the plethora of scandals plaguing the administration, saying they are “fake” and “phony” scandals generated by the Republicans. President Obama yesterday, in what he billed as a major economic speech, but which most viewed as his typical campaign speech, belittled Republicans for standing in the way of economic progress and wasting the country’s time with all… Read more »

Racism vs. Truth-Telling

I guess he can’t help himself. He’s driven ideologically. He seeks to continue to make a point that is no point at all. Yes, I’m talking about Barack Obama. Now it’s not just “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon Martin,” but “Trayvon Martin could have been me thirty-five years ago.” Even though there’s no evidence of racial bias in the Zimmerman-Martin incident, the president refuses to let the matter drop. Tenaciously, he clings to the fiction that… Read more »

Needed: An American Spring

Anyone remember something called the Arab Spring? That was as inaccurate a name as Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and the People’s Republic of China. There was no voluntary union of Russia and the nations it subjugated, and they certainly weren’t republics—representation and the rule of law were both negated. In China, the people aren’t really running anything, but it sounds nice to call it the People’s Republic. And again, it’s not really a republic. Neither was the Arab Spring… Read more »
