The news events of the last few months have certainly put the Obama Administration in a peculiar position.  The Gulf crisis notwithstanding, most of these events have been created by this president and his staff.

Team Obama went the the G20 Summit in Toronto this weekend to chide the other 19 nations to continue to stimulate their economy through Keynsian economic principles.  “Not so fast”, said the other countries.  “We have to make choices, and right now, we choose fiscal solvency and prudence”.  What a concept!

Passage of the Financial Institutions Reform package was always tenuous, at best, but the death of Senator Robert Byrd over the weekend makes passage more difficult.  One less Democratic vote means that it’s more likely that Republicans can filibuster this package, and this is a good thing.  Here’s why:  Any bill that increases regulation, drives up costs to the consumer, and squeezes financial services companies’ margins will negatively affect the economy.  The costs of increased regulation always get passed along to the consumer in some way, shape or form.  Limiting profits also limit tax revenues […]

Gen. Stanley McChrystal in hot water with Obama after Rolling Stone interview. from Sister Toldjah.    My take, McChrystal can not publicly criticize his commander-in-chief, B. Hussein Obama.   However McChrystal can publicly criticize Obama’s inner circle of idiots like Vice President Joe Biden and national security adviser Jim Jones who are not in McChrystal’s chain of […]

Dumbo’s green energy delusions, Robert J. Samuelson, Washington Post: [Baracl] Obama has made vilification of oil and the oil industry a rhetorical mainstay. This is intellectually shallow, if politically understandable. “Clean energy” won’t displace oil or achieve huge reductions in greenhouse gas emissions — for example, the 83 percent cut by 2050 from 2005 levels […]

t was nearly the end of the day, today , when I finally realized that I had not written anything in terms of a comment on the day. Usually I tend to take the attitude that if I don’t have anything to say on a subject I won’t say anything at all.  Or perhaps, I […]
