Dumbo  b/k/a Barack Obama gets WaPoed  from the left and the right, from the left Dana Milbank, Washington Post: It’s not exactly fair to blame Obama for the rout: Almost certainly, the markets ignored him. And that’s the problem: The most powerful man in the world seems strangely powerless, and irresolute, as larger forces bring […]

Obama’s speech, or lack thereof, reax from Jennifer Rubin, Washington Post: He did say one indisputably true thing: The downgrade was more a comment on our political dysfunction than on our ability to repay our debts. That is the dysfunction that he has presided over. That is the paralysis he perpetuated by insisting for months […]

Jessup MD– Dropping a load here, then running to Carlisle, PA later. One of the hottest days in recent memory. How long till we hear “Global Warming’s to blame’…. (slap) REPAIRING THE IMAGE:  Glenn Reynolds asks an interesting question, speaking about Obama, and his approval rating which has been below 50% for six straight quarters, […]

I’d like to offer up a re-post of mine from a tenth of 2009. I post this with an eye toward the argument over the debt ceiling limit. I submit to the reader that had we not been holding the Republicans feet to the fire we wouldn’t have gotten this close to real spending cuts. […]

(New York City)-– I’m actually not far from where I was the other day, at Middle Village. Just up the Metropolitan Bvd, in fact. A nice drive this morning. Now, it’s about a 5. 1/2 hr drive, though so I had to leave Rochester at around 5am. Not overly happy about that but at least […]

Hey, Billy: Glenn Reynolds: “Personally, I believe that ‘fairness’ consists in the fruits of my labor not being taken by corrupt hacks to redistribute to their cronies in exchange for votes.” Oh, yeah?

L & O DOA, Deadline: This one is a shocker. Veteran crime drama Law & Order will not get its shot at history after all. I hear that after long deliberations, NBC has decided to cancel the long-running procedural, which will end its run at 20 seasons, tied with Gunsmoke. This is very surprising as […]

Schooling the Professor, Glenn Reynolds, Instapundit: THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER is pushing an Obama cheating scandal story. Bah.  When was the last time they got one of these things right? Granted the Enquirer has developed a knack for finding titillating stories the MSM would just rather ignore, but it is simply not a scandal for a […]

The ears are already falling off of Dumbo Care. The Dim Won wants to fix anthropogenic global warming and the evils of capitalism.  Before we give Barack Obama more carte blanch power, we ought to demand that the Obami demonstrate some competency.  Having already wrecked the economy and wrecking health care, they need keep their […]

Jennifer Rubin on the Dim Won’s fading power of oratory, Commentary: [Barack Obama’s] rhetoric (which to the amazement of many conservatives – who noticed he was largely talking New Age gibberish during the campaign – transfixed a great number of people for a very long time) is now seen for what it is — a […]

The democrats are party of cowards, from John Koziol, Citizen of Loconia: The scheduled appearance of 1st District Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter at a “town hall” meeting at Laconia City Hall on Thursday is shaping up to be an interesting affair with critics of her vote in favor of health care reform blasting her for holding […]
