Obama to screw the troops, by a simple stroke of the pen, President Barack Obama could assure that our soldiers get paid, even if the government would shut down.  That is Obama could, but he won’t from Jeff Poor, Daily Caller: With a government shutdown looming, one major concern has been whether armed service personnel […]

I blogged yesterday: Consider this closely, now;  The Democrats have had an overwhelming majority in both houses of Congress, and had the White House as well.  Yet, they claim that one of the reasons for their slow “progress” to the left has been Republican stonewalling?  Oh, please.  The reality there is one of two situations, […]

President Obama 2010 SOTUAs we end the President’s first year in office, we still struggle with folks on the left complaining bitterly that those of us who share a conservative ilk are out to see Obama fail.  Never mind the fact that all I seem to hear during a Republican administration is a cacophony of angry vitriol, outright lies and attempts by Congress to undermine the critical work of the President, and I’ll accept the fact that there are many on the right who see nothing but red when they discuss the current resident of the White House.  But my goal is strictly to see America — Americans — be successful, and that means that I want to see the President be successful as well.

But the President\’s speech tonight leaves me wondering. There\’s no doubt it brought a sense of euphoria to those in need, to those who continue to promote a liberal agenda. The beginning and end of the speech brought a broad stroke of hope and confidence in who we are as a nation, as any good presidential speech should.

He made some good proposals. Some of which will make Congress uncomfortable to consider. Some of which will be hard to execute. Earmark transparency. Budget freezes. Cutting programs.

He made some popular proposals. Jobs programs. Small Business Lending programs and tax credits. Tax credits on capital investments. Bank investment reforms. Additional taxation of large banks.

And he continued to press for Health Care Reform that Americans don\’t want.

I will likely disagree with much of the spending […]

Kennedy suffered over the weekend, doctors said Tuesday in a grim diagnosis for one of American politics’ most enduring figures.
