An Obama Review

Every once in a while, in the midst of a heated campaign, we need to be reminded that we have a president already who is doing his best to ruin the country. As we wind the clock down on the Obama years, there will be many reviews of what has occurred during his two terms. May I begin that review today? Let’s start with the economy, which was rather broken when he took office. He immediately rushed into that arena… Read more »

How the World Sees Obama’s America

I admit to being overwhelmed today. How does anyone write about the continuing dramedy that is the Obama administration and still find the words to adequately describe his Land of Make Believe? Two of his recent statements have thinking people wondering if rationality has left the universe. First, he asserted that on his watch the United States has once again become the most respected country in the world. Reaction from the political cartoonists reflects how the world is responding to… Read more »

Obama: Everything’s So Much Better Now

President Obama made some astounding statements in a speech yesterday, claiming that he has rescued the economy and that the United States is now the most respected nation in the world because of his foreign policy. Well, that kind of covers the whole ground, doesn’t it? It’s also ludicrous. Yes, the stock market is booming, but keen analysts worry it’s another one of those artificial bubbles. When they break, things go sour quickly. And the GDP this last quarter actually… Read more »

Alternate Realities

Let’s make today “Catch Up Day” in Obamaworld and Clintonworld. In case you’re not sure what those are, those are alternate realities, outside the realm of what the rest of us experience. If you watch the news, you know that the reporters are almost breathless over the drop in the unemployment rate. Why, it’s only 5.4% now, so Obama’s policies must be working. What they ignore, of course, is the rising number of people no longer in the workforce; we’re… Read more »

The President’s Magic Beans

That sort of, kind of beginning of some type of understanding upon which some future agreement might be based—otherwise known as the Iran “deal”—seems to be falling apart, if indeed there ever was anything to fall apart to begin with. It’s as if the Obama administration got a little ahead of itself. No surprise there. They tend to overlook some genuine concerns about dealing with Iran in their haste to achieve something they consider historic. This so-called deal allows Iran… Read more »

The Iran Fantasy

If you are tired of hearing about Iran and the “deal” now being negotiated with that terrorist nation, I apologize up front. You may now go to another website and revel in recipes, entertainment news, or other such essential topics for your day. Staving off a nuclear attack on America is obviously not something you want to think about. Don’t let it bother you; go ahead and concentrate on what’s really important. For the rest of you, let’s have some… Read more »

Obama’s Missteps in the Muslim World

Step back for a moment and survey the upheaval in the Muslim world in the last few years and contemplate the policies of the Obama administration toward the changes that have taken place. What you will see is a consistent pattern—not a successful policy, mind you—that reveals the worldview of our president. Let’s start with Egypt. Hosni Mubarak, who had ruled that country since the early 1980s, was forcibly removed from power. Now, he certainly wasn’t a wonderful leader, in… Read more »
