Barack Obama may believe that his incessant whining about all the challenges his predecessor left him lets America know how tough he has it. The danger to his presidency is that it can sound awfully like “I’m not up to the job.” William McGurn, Wall Street Journal

Buckley  on rare occasion resorted to profanity, and as for myself, my speaking skills fall short of those of Buckley.   However Alan Greyson seems utterly incapable of expressing disapproval without having to resort to profanity.   Here is Representative Alan Grayson calling Linda Robertson a whore, video: Hat tip, Gateway […]
