Obama has lost that loving feeling, from Dr. Milton R. Wolf, Washington Times: Is President Obama really a different man today than he was before he entered the Oval Office?

Mineola,NY– OK, enough, already. I’ve had my entire week rained out. We’ve actually got some sun mixed in with the clouds as this is written, but sheesh. ..   Anyway, I’m out on Long Island, again. Interestingly a lot of these places I deliver to out here are now on a first name basis with […]

Merry Christmas Virginia, from Jamie Katz, Chicago Tribune: It’s all right to say Merry Christmas. In fact, it’s lovely. I happen to be Jewish.

In a Pajamas Media article I wrote just after Obama was deified: Indeed, it is Obama who apparently is doing the most in terms of recognizing (the far left’s bleeding anti-Bush vitriol notwithstanding) that Mr. Bush didn’t do that bad of a job after all. He’s adopting the vast majority of his anti-terrorism and economic […]

Last night was a drubbing of a sitting president like we have not seen since 1932. At this writing, we’re at around 60 seats worth of swing away from the Democrats, and by the end of this, possibly 70 seats. Look, let’s be honest…. Even assuming Obama and the minions of the left had a […]

Melissa Clouthier makes an argument at Pajamas Media that I’ve been making,…. both here and there… for quite some time, now: I’m tired of Mike Huckabee, John McCain, Mitt Romney, Tom Ridge, and the rest of them. I’m tired of the pontificating. I’m tired of the holier-than-thou bearing. I’m tired of the self-important smugness. Most […]
