An Obama Hate Machine, from David Corn, Politics Daily: The OHM [Obama Hate Machine] — led by a wide-ranging collection of conservative media outfits, right-wing bloggers, and GOP partisans — has already effectively undermined Obama’s presidency by propagating lies about his administration’s major accomplishments. It tarred Obama’s health care reform initiative by falsely claiming it […]

Liberal is synonym for stupid.   Dim witted Senators want to wreck economy to solve imaginary problem: WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A new Senate bill aimed at battling global warming would impose new limits on carbon dioxide pollution from factories, utilities and vehicles, while expanding heavy-polluting domestic oil production and nuclear power generation. The legislation, which is […]

What ever happened to Separation of Church and State? The White House on Friday announced a “summit on entrepreneurship” to build economic ties with the Islamic world, part of President Barack Obama’s outreach to Muslims. The White House said it has invited participants from more than 40 countries over five continents for the April 26-27 […]

healthcare-reformWe are going to try and keep it simple on this one.

The bill stinks.

Put aside the fact that it expands Medicare.

Put aside the fact that it establishes coverage mandates (you will be forced to buy health insurance somehow).

Put aside the fact that it is a colossal power grab for an industry that has been well managed by the states for a long time.

Put aside the fact that it will increase taxes.

Put aside the fact that it will dramatically increase the cost of insurance for everyone (and they sold this to us originally as being needed to stop the soaring cost of insurance!).

Put aside the fact that it will wreak havoc on the tax code, balloon the size of the IRS and increase the size of corporate tax management teams (which will increase consumer costs in all industries).

Put aside the fact that this bill is overloaded with earmarks… in a bill that was intended to bring equality in health care.

Put aside all of those issues and focus on the one true deception that will be broadcast throughout the weekend and coming weeks: that the Congressional Budget Office has determined that the bill will have a reducing impact the deficit.

The lie here is that although the Federal deficit will […]

The record of the Democrats since attaining office has not been good, at least from the perspective of the average American. Let’s look at their key agenda points: Global Warming, as such has long been seen as a lie. That lie was unarguably exposed as such the other day. We’re told that the bailout spending […]

As I said earlier this morning:  I can’t help but wonder if we aren’t at or beyond a tipping point  against Obama and the Democrats… even from people who supported their election. The amazing part is,  whereas it took Bill Clinton quite literally years to get to this point,   we’re only 30 days into […]

Welcome, one and all to the most intense nightly read anywhere on the ‘sphere.  Bitsblog’s Nightly Ramble. It is jolly well amazing to me that Obama should be resorting to the politics of fear so quickly.  There’s a simple reason that he is resorting to this tactic at this time; He’s losing.  He’s about ready […]

Peace versus Freedom, have noticed comments that while 43 tended to talk about Freedom, the one tends to talk about Peace.    The two are not synonymous.   If BO  is as smart as the leftards would like us to believe he is, then he actually knows the difference.    Yet BO talks a lot about peace and little […]

From Brian Faler, Bloomberg:  A Congressional Budget Office analysis of President Barack Obama’s plan found that most of the approximately $355 billion in proposed discretionary spending on highways, renewable energy and other initiatives wouldn’t be spent before 2011. The government would spend about $26 billion of the money this year and $110 billion more next […]

Over at OTB, Steve Verdon restates what I’ve been saying here for weeks:   An older article, but relevant. It is important to understand that, as GSEs, Fannie and Freddie were viewed in the capital markets as government-backed buyers (a belief that has now been reduced to fact). Thus they were able to borrow as […]
