Questions for Dumbo, here just one from Victor Davis Hanson, Pajamas Media: We are to believe that future additional drilling in the U.S. will not help lower world oil or gas prices, but calling on the Middle East to pump more, or praising Brazil’s proposed commitment to offshore exploration, will?

Dumbo’s Delusions, Peter Wehner, is searching for a word to describe Barack Obama, but doesn’t quite find it.  The word is not contradictions but rather delusions, from Commentary: It appears to me that Obama is a man of tremendous internal contradictions.

It may the greatest love the world has ever seen, Barack Obama’s enormous and passionate love for himself.  Jennifer Rubin, Commentary: This is, of course, nothing new.

But the real inappropriate relationships in last year’s presidential campaign were between ACORN and the campaigns of both Obama and Democrat Hillary Clinton. The Times ignored that story. Unlike the McCain affair, multitudes of reporters were not rushed to flood the zone on this game changer. Well, of course. Don isn’t […]

Charles Krauthammer, Washington Post: After Obama’s miraculous 2008 presidential campaign, it was clear that at some point the magical mystery tour would have to end.

Why, to be perfectly honest, that bill reads like payback to a heap of lobbyists and special […]
