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 […]

B.J’s fall from gtace, Los Angelos Times: ‘I am not a racist,’ ex-President Bill Clinton asserts Former presidents get a whole lot of leeway in what they say in public. But former President Bill Clinton just violated one of the prime rules of political communications: Never say what you are not. Then this the same […]

Paris Hilton has responded to John McCain’s campaign video by issuing her own campaign video and announcing her own energy plan.   Ben Smith, Politcio, has the both the story and video. Short McCain campaign reponse: [D]rilling. Paris Hilton might not be as big a celebrity as Barack Obama, but she obviously has a better energy […]

These Nightly Rambles are all things I’ve found during the day. I input them all day long and auto-post whatever I’ve collected at around 4 to 430 eastern. I put things in here that catch my eye but that perhaps do not rate a full post on their own. Edouard is visiting Texas. About what […]

Last night here and the night before over at Q&O, I wondered if Nancy Pelosi wasn’t setting us up for some reason. At Q&O I said: She’s got better access to the numbers than any of us, and she knows full well the numbers are against her in the congress… Else she’d not be playing […]

Joyner notes Kevin Drum: It’s a pretty good bet that any law named after a child is a lousy one. He’s referencing “Sarah’s Law” here but he’s right: laws passed in the emotional wake of one very specific crime are bound to be problematic. That’s doubly true if it’s done “for the children.” I tell […]

Michael D is miffed at Obama for suggesting that the solution for oil supply problems is to find more. Apparently to him, that’s not painful enough for us. Look, I know that there are people who are suffering because of high gas prices. I’m one of them, although I know that, like many of you, […]

Does anybody, aside from the media, listen to Barack Obama? Evidently not. The price of gasoline is over four dollars a gallon. So BO declares an economic emergency , and in response Mrs. Pelosi, and her entire caucus, go on vacation, John Bresnahan, Politico Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the Democrats adjourned the House, turned […]

It’s August, already? Where the hell did July go?   2/3rds of the summer is gone and I’m just getting started on the stuff I wanted to do this year. Honorable Mention at OTB’s caption Contest. I gotta admit, that one was easy. I’m sure a man of his stature will not notice this, but I […]

Why does the left block US energy development? The answer is their value system is different from the mainstream of the country. But the left’s blocking energy development costs all of us. Case in point. Do you know how much oil shale is in the US? Eight times as much as the Saudi Arabia reserves. 2118 Billion […]

Hey, Bruce… I would argue they ARE in fact consumer driven, and have been so, all along. Consumer demand for Altoids boxes on wheels has simply not been there, and so they didn’t get built.  Couple that with the idea that even with prices for fuel being what they are just now, for most people, […]

Ben Castlemen at the WSJ this morning points out that lifting the drilling ban would not be an immididate fix for our situation. If the bans were lifted tomorrow, it would be at least seven years — and likely as long as a decade — before the first oil began to flow off the coasts […]

Let’s break this down: Had Bill Clinton not vetoed ANWR drilling back in 1995, our supply of available crude would be at least 20% higher than it is today. That is one of several examples of our being prevented from drilling where the oil is. There are countless offshore examples, off California, and Florida. We […]

Yeah, full moon, tonight. And no, I don’t mean the guy with his butt hanging out the window of the Yugo to your left.  It’s been a weird day, already. Your first clue, Billy, should have been when the two responsible for the bill are two of the more questionable critters Congress has ever produced. […]
