Albany,NY— I’m at the Pilot Truck stop tonight,  and another week is in the books. Tomorrow, I take my empty to a warehouse near Rochester to  be loaded over the week end, and take my truck back to “The Barn”, and then go home to my wife and kids. I’ll be happy to see them […]

Radicial Islam has been waging war on the United State at least since 1993. Yet the dim one, b/k/a President Barack Obama continues to find attacks against in and against our country to be “incomprehensible.”    Claudia  Rosett, Forbes, try to clear the fog from Obama’s min: There’s been plenty of debate about President Barack Obama’s […]

There’s a  number of people last night heaping praise on Obama’s speech at Ft Hood yesterday.  Predictably,  Marc Armbinder is one of them: Today, at Ft. Hood. I guarantee: they’ll be teaching this one in rhetoric classes. It was that good. My gloss won’t do it justice. Yes, I’m having a Chris Matthews-chill-running-up-my-leg moment, but […]

Welcome, one and all to the most intense nightly read anywhere on the sphere…The BitsBlog Nightly Ramble SCOZZAFAVA AND THE LEFT: I guess it should not be surprising at all, to see leftists still trying to control the GOP by means of mislabeling such as Dede Scozzafava as a ‘moderate’.  Certainly, from their point of […]

When you’ve got the Helen Thomas, the NYT, and The Nation lining up against you, it’s time to admit defeat, boys. But alas, Axelrod and Emanuel can’t help themselves. Mary Katherine Ham, Weekly Standard. The thing I like about giving advice to the Obama administration is that am sure they will not heed it. ADDENDUM:(Eric)  […]

The editorial board is divided on what of the price of Barack Obama’s  disaster in Denmark will be borne by the elated one,  Obama himself,  or  the institution with a tingle running up its collective leg, to wit the Main Stream Media.   I gravitate towards the latter. Obama is man is few accomplishments, colleges he […]

I’ll probably get in trouble with Eric for even mentioning the name of the twit  Meghan McCain, but I am bored and feel like swatting a gnat.   Miss McCain notes in the Daily Beast: So Michelle Malkin successfully rounds out the trifecta of extreme female conservative pundits, following Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter, who believe […]

Doctor Krauthammer today makes a great point about Obama’s response to the Iran situation: …. this incipient revolution is no longer about the election. Obama totally misses the point. The election allowed the political space and provided the spark for the eruption of anti-regime fervor that has been simmering for years and awaiting its moment. […]

[Obama] called the idea that he’s gotten an easy ride from the press “very hard to swallow.” Delusional and totally graceless for a man who’s gotten the journalistic tongue bath he’s received from so many outlets (with the notable exceptions of a few in the White House press pool, who are great to watch). Mary […]

Oh, my. Where to begin, on an examination of Obama’s speech to the Middle East? I’m certainly not going to hit you with all 6000 words.  I can’t even jump on everything in the speech that should be jumped on. An intensive response would take a week to formulate and still not cover ten percent of the […]

The one has decreed a new holiday”Cuatro de Cinco.”   Mary Katherine Ham, Weekly Standard, quips: So, Obama, I will not turn your tendency to mispeak (and, then reprimand your Teleprompter) into an international incident, but I will note it with some glee:  Mary Katherine, it is going to a gleeful four years.    Now is really […]
