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 […]

I won’t even bother to link this nonsense, but we’ve all seen in the last several days the issue surrounding Rand Paul and his comments regarding the 1964 civil rights act.

Janet NapolitanoNot in my wildest dreams would I believe that a US official could be so stupid as to say something like this in the face of unrelenting facts.

And intriguing enough is that it happened on CNN, whose reporting tends to be as supportive of the Obama administration as possible.

Of course, this is coming from the leader of the same department that earlier this year targeted “right-wing extremists” as high-risk for recruiting new members and conducting terrorist activities.

About the only spin one could put on this is that “…the system worked, but it’s broke”.  That perspective behind a statement like this is part of the problem.  Saying that everything worked like it’s supposed to but it’s not supposed to work that way just leaves one wondering how much thought is going into the design of the process that is supposed to be protecting our country.

Clearly the system is broke.  To think that someone who has been identified as a terrorist risk like Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab could be allowed onto a passenger jet without careful screening is just insane… and there are 500,000 people on the list he was placed on a month ago!  As I shared in my piece at the Des Moines Register yesterday, the entire focus […]

Michael Brenner, Puffington Post,  has lost faith in the one: Serious health care reform is gone with the wind. It cannot be retrieved. All other domestic issues pale in importance by comparison — except for the financial crisis. On that front, Obama has behaved exactly as he now has done on the health care front. […]
