President Fifty Seven States knows best.   He told the New Yorker’s David Remnick,  that his problems were all the fault of those stoopid republicans and dastardly Rush Limbaugh,  from Hill: President Obama said that gridlock on Capitol Hill stemmed from an inability to “penetrate the Republican base” and convince voters there that he’s “not the […]

The fierce urgency of then, ala New York Times (2004): What is critical is for the winner of the presidential race, and for the three European nations, to make it urgently and abundantly clear to Iran’s president, Mohammad Khatami, and his mullahs that the West will brook no further delays, and that it is serious […]

Oh a tale from two Posts, Washington and Jerusalem, first from Jennifer Rubin, Washington Post: Critics of the president’s feeble Iran policy have known all along this was coming. If the report in the New York Times is accurate, the president is about to countenance a nuclear-armed Iran. The administration doesn’t put it that way, and […]

One of the problems that I’ve noticed these last couple of weeks and particularly the last couple of days as regards Syria’s attack on its own citizens  (supposedly, anyway) is a total lack of information about who was being attacked. This seems to me a crucial lack. We are dealing, it seems to me, with […]

Here’s a point I’ve been making for some time, now…. as expressed by Terry A. Hurlbut at the site Conservative News and Views: Everyone remembers the anti-propaganda campaign that followed: “Bush Lied; People Died!”, “General Betray-Us,” et cetera ad nauseam.

Bullies, as anyone who has dealt with them before will tell you, tend to be not all that bright.  And look, I know I’m hardly the first to the first to notice this, but Joe Biden would seem a prime example. They also tend to be rude, obnoxious and overbearing.  Think about it, gang. If […]

At some point during this next week, you’re going to hear one of the Democrats, either Obama or Biden mouth the words “Two wars we didn’t pay for”. Likely at the debates scheduled for this week, but outside those venues as well. After all, this is a mantra they’ve been chanting for the last four […]

What we have additionally in the case of Obama, this time, is a case of liberals outright lying to us to cover their own backsides. Not only is Obama foreign policy a failure, in much the same way and for the same reasons that Jimmy Carter’s foreign policy was a failure, but now Mr. Obama and his people have been caught flat out lying to the American people in a feeble attempt to cover the failure of their worldview and their foreign policy.

I suggest that if the foreign policy failures themselves were not enough to remove Obama from office as they were in the case of Jimmy Carter, Lying about it certainly should be.
