Honest: Would You Rather Win with Chris Christie or Lose with Ted Cruz?

Those sophisticates at Time magazine made a funny.  They put Chris Christie on their cover with the headline, “The Elephant in the Room.”  Get it?  Elephant.  Christie.  Time magazine did a junior high fat joke right there on its cover. Time’s executive editor Michael Duffy explained the cheap shot this way:   “Well, he’s obviously…

Is Obama Clueless — or Dishonest?

I’m always amused when I hear my liberal friends say that they’re pro choice.  What they mean, of course, is they’re pro choice when it comes to abortions. But many of these same liberals support nanny state laws that tell us how much soda we can drink from one cup, or what kind of fats…

Fraud in the Inducement — and President Obama

Bulletin!  This just in!!! Even the so-called mainstream media have caught on.  Even they, his most loyal acolytes, have begun pounding Jay Carney, the president’s flack, over the rollout of ObamaCare. It doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to figure out that the whole procedure is one great big mess.  Even the libs on Saturday Night Live…

The One Promise Mr. Obama Is Trying to Keep

I have written before about that observation by H.L. Mencken, the Baltimore journalist and all-around sourpuss, who said you’ll never go broke underestimating the intelligence of the ordinary American.  Once again, let’s put that dark remark to the test. Most Americans tell the pollsters that they don’t like ObamaCare.  But they detest Republicans, the very…

The Suicide Wing of the GOP vs The Realists

Here’s the problem for Republicans as we move toward the elections in 2014 and 2016:  The majority – sometimes known as the establishment — can’t trust the populist wing of the party – sometimes known as the suicide wing – to do what’s best for the GOP’s prospects … and they can’t nuke them either. …

A President Who Is More Like Harry Reid than Harry Truman

President Obama says if Republicans fail to increase the debt ceiling they will be responsible for an “economic shutdown.”  The Treasury Department says if the U.S. government defaults on its obligations, it would be “catastrophic.” D-Day is October 17.  That’s when the government of the United States technically runs out of money to pay our…

Is This the GOP Shutdown — Or President Obama’s?

I interviewed George Carlin many years ago when I was still with CBS News.  We hit it off.  He was both funny and very smart.  Very liberal, too, but that never came out in our interview.  One of his points was that we humans had made a mess of things and he wanted the world…

An Open Letter to the Ayatollahs

No, not the ayatollahs in Tehran.  This is a letter to you, the conservative American ayatollahs who demand purity, just like the ones over there.  I’m not talking about all of you, of course.  But this open letter is for many of you; maybe even most of you – the ones who say you agree…
