Three hundred million people in the country and the best we can come up with is a Bush v Clinton match up?
This is all we have to offer in 2016? The megabucks donors have met in Las Vegas and decided Jeb Bush is It. He’s the one who will get the party money.
That would be Jeb, as in brother of George W., who left office less than deeply loved. Son of President George H.W. Bush.
When did we become the old House of Lords?
Enough of the dynasty politics. No more Bushes, Clintons or Kennedys, please. Read more...
Demonstrating the patience befitting the pontiff, Pope Francis met with Barack Obama for approximately 52 minutes on Thursday. Each came away with entirely different recollections of the conversations.
In Obama’s version, the pair didn’t talk a lot about social schisms and did not touch “in detail” on the topic of the contraceptive mandate. If that seems a bit hard to believe, remember which one of the two men won an award for telling the “Lie of the Year”.
The Vatican’s statement indicated that Obama and Pope Francis focused on issues particularly relevant for the Catholic Church in the US, such as the exercise of the rights to religious freedom, life and conscientious objection. Read more...
It’s a bad week for Democrats. They’re being arrested or accused all over the place. But, nobody can compare to California Democrat state senator, Leland Yee, who has ambitions of being the Secretary of State.
According to the FBI’s complaint, Yee started off innocently enough, merely taking bribes to cover his campaign debt. This long time Democrat tradition turned into money laundering for the Chinese mafia who were engaged in illegal gambling, cigarettes, drugs, alcohol and gun running to local mobsters.
Proving once again that liberals have no sense or irony, Yee is a staunch and vocal supporter of strict gun control. Read more...
We’re supposed to believe that while Vladimir Putin was busy comandeering part of the Ukraine, he kept taking time out to have ninety minute phone calls with Barack Obama? Honestly, who could listen to Obama for ninety minutes? Especially if you’re preoccupied with reestablishing the Soviet Union and all.
Maybe Putin actually just put the phone down on his desk and let Obama lecture away. No doubt they’ll use it as a party tape someday.
In any case, it’s an incredible time in history when “threats” from the President of the United States mean nothing more than a double dog dare ya.
What a great win! Alex Sink got sunk by David Jolly in Florida’s 13th District despite much higher name recognition, outspending him 4:1 and the fact that he ran a lousy campaign.
In other words, Jolly ran like a Republican and won anyway.
As good as Republicans are at blowing easy elections, this one is a harbringer of things to come. Sink got herself wrapped around the axel of Obamacare and finished herself off by insisting she would “fix” Obamacare, not obliterate it. Read more...
Our ever increasing long list of enemies are celebrating Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s slash and burn announcement earlier today regarding the defense budget.
Liberals traditionally can never find anyplace to cut costs other than defense. Not one worthless or redundant program can ever be touched. But, the military, they imagine, is entirely expendable. After all, without them, we’d have no Iraq and Afghanistan, right?
The Obama administration plans to take our troop levels down from 520,000 to 440,000. The Army will be at its lowest troop levels since before WWII. Housing allowances will be cut, health care premiums and commissary prices will increase and those princely sums we pay our military heroes will be frozen for at least a year. Read more...
At least not according to Pat Caddell who argued Sunday on Fox News that the GOP establishment would be happy to have the IRS go after Tea Party groups who pose a threat to them.
Co panelist John LeBoutillier commented that Nixon “went down the toilet” for using the IRS as a political tool while the Republicans have backed away from “high level” investigations of IRS targeting.
Caddell’s position is that considering how much agreement there is that there should be an investigation into the IRS targeting, there is only one reason the GOP won’t dare touch it: because the establishment Republicans want the IRS to attack the Tea Party, whom they believe is a threat to their hold on power.

Obama has delayed the health care mandate for medium size businesses until January of 2016, yet again exercising power he doesn’t have.
He’s got his pen and his phone. What he needs is a copy of the Constitution.
Accenture, the company hired to fix healthcare.gov may be yet another reflection of the Obama administration’s incredibly bad judgement.
Based in Ireland (bungling the jobs Americans just won’t bungle) Accenture has a long and questionable history of “troubled projects” and “ethical lapses”. That history is not unknown to federal officials who have been known to criticize the company’s integrity or lack thereof.
Accenture paid the Justice Department a $63 million settlement over “kickbacks” and “bid rigging” in numerous federal contracts.
A perfect fit for HHS! Read more...
The non partisan (so we’re told) CBO announced yestereday that Obamacare was going to cost 2.3 million in lost jobs over the next ten years. This astounding piece of news could only be welcomed by liberals.
To normal people, this is yet another in a long string of reasons to do away with Obamacare before it does anymore damage. It took the Dems awhile, but once they got their bearings, they actually found a way to spin it.
Don’t look at it as a tragedy of more Americans being put out of work by Obama’s screwed up polices. Look at it as the liberation of America from their jobs. Read more...
I made a promise to my twitter followers–I would watch the SOTU and tweet my commentary (I watch this crap so you don’t have to). It didn’t take long for me to wonder what I was thinking when I made that promise.
He started out with his traditional round of whoppers: he created 8 million new jobs and cut the deficit in half.
He has the odd notion that Americans want the government to focus on them and their lives. Hell no. We wanna be left alone. Read more...
What lunatic thought holding the winter Olympics in Sochi was a good idea? Did no one look at a map? It’s next to Chechnya. Nothing but fun loving, peaceful folks coming out of there.
Putin is reportedly spending $3 billion on security alone, $51 billion on the event in total.
The place is swarming with Black Widows. Two jihadis have made a video promising a “surprise package”. Putin swears he can keep the perimeter around the games secure, yet rumors already exist that one of the Black Widows is already inside. The US has parked warships just in case. Read more...
Intense is the way to describe this film. It will inspire you, break your heart, infuriate you and uplift you. All while being true to Marcus Luttrell’s book of the same name.
You’ll find out just how strong our magnificent Navy SEALs really are. Battered and bloody, they refuse to quit the fight right up until they took their last breaths. The firefight scenes were well acted and phenomenally realistic.
You’ll get to see the heroism of Lt. Michael Murphy who gave his life to try to get help for his men, moving out into a clearing to get a cell phone connection to call for air support, knowing he would be shot by the Taliban, Murphy made the ultimate sacrifice. Read more...
Lest you believe that Comrade Mayor de Blasio has a soft spot for horses, allow me to disabue you of that delusion with help from the American Spectator. The new Dear Leader of New York City put the great Horse Drawn Carriage controversey front and center because of campaign cash, not compassion for animals.
Steve Nislick, big campaign donor and real estate developer wants the property on which the Central Park horses’ stables now sit. It’s no more complex than that.
Nislick has conned crazy animal rights groups into taking up his cause. De Blasio himself is beholden to Nislick. The agenda couldn’t be more clear.
According to a new WaPo/ABC poll, Obama’s approval ratings are the lowest since Richard Nixon’s. His approval is 43%. Other polls have it as low as 37%. Even Bush had a higher approval rating at the end of his fifth year in office with 47%. Every other post WWII president was over 50%.
Seventy-nine percent of those polled believe we are still in a recession. That tells you how well things are going out there. Obama is buried in scandals and the disaster that is Obamacare.
The poll shows that people have more confidence in the Republicans in Congress than the Democrats. Read more...
D student and Secretary of State John Kerry finds the notion of the North Koreans potentially unacceptable.
That’s what he told ABC’s Martha Raddatz on This Week. One would think that of the two of them, Kerry would be the more likely to know that the Norks already have nukes. It’s what they’re doing with them that concerns us at this point.
Just when we thought we couldn’t get stuck with a Secretary stupider than Hillary, we get this guy.
Someday, when he’s ready to hear it, perhaps we should tell Mr. Secretary exactly how it came to be that such a crazy and dangerous regime got nukes at all.
But not like this. I can see why so many of you think the Obamacare website debacle has to be intentional–it’s impossible to believe that anyone could be this incompetent.
You’re right in the sense that Obamacare was designed to fall apart, but not like this. It was supposed to break down later when the young and healthy failed to support the sick and elderly, driving premiums up to astronomical numbers. Higher than they are already. That would be after Obama was safely out of office and blamed on those “greedy” insurance companies. Read more...
As minimum wage workers protest, many union owned and operated, we might want to quit arguing irrelevant facts about whether it’s “fair” or not to have a minimum wage.
We need never get to that issue. There is nothing in the US Constitution that confers upon the federal government the right to establish a minimum wage. Nothing.
Liberals will try to hide behind their beloved and badly stretched out Commerce Clause which gives the government the right to “regulate” interstate commerce. Notice our Founders’ choice of words–they said “regulate”, not control. Regulate means to make regular. Read more...
JPo identifies Obama’s real agenda in making the horrendously bad deal with Iran–to delegitimatize Israel.
The Iran agreement is just the culmination of a lengthy history of delegitimizing Israel as a “warmongering, ungrateful ally”. Israel, according to the Obama administration, is forcing the US to endanger itself for the benefit of the Jewish state.
Why wasn’t the Iran accord signed a year ago, since Iran made no changes in its positions. On its face, the deal makes little sense. Read more...
Obama: Sometimes people forget I’m not running for office again.
Really? Maybe he should quit spending so much time campaigning. That would free up more time to play golf.
