POTUS owes CIA an apology, from Marc A.

I have very few conclusions to draw about this entire sordid Loughner affair, but there are a number of things that should be commented on. There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind that Jared Lougner is a nut case.   Of course, that should go as the first point in any attack such as the […]

Robert Reich comes up short, from Puffington Post: Public servants are convenient scapegoats. Republicans would rather deflect attention from corporate executive pay that continues to rise as corporate profits soar, even as corporations refuse to hire more workers. They don’t want stories about Wall Street bonuses, now higher than before taxpayers bailed out the Street. […]

There is little to no doubt in anyone’s mind that there is going to be a massive change in Washington , come November, and probably an even bigger one, come 2013.  There’s also little doubt as to exactly why.  The Democrats and their policies have been a massive failure.  Not because they failed to get […]

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.

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

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