Iraq is No Longer Bush’s Legacy; It’s Obama’s

isis

Vice President Joe Biden said in 2010 interview that he was “very optimistic about Iraq” and that he believed it was “gonna be one of the great achievements of this administration.” The statement ignited some controversy at the time, but not because anyone doubted the stability of Iraq. What many people took exception to was…

“I Used To Be A Democrat” and “Do Liberals Ever Listen To Themselves?”

It’s true that for a long time, an inexcusably long time, I was a registered Democrat. But even then, I never called myself a liberal. Because I came of age in the 1960s, I associated liberals with the punks I knew who called cops “pigs,” called soldiers “baby killers” and used any and all means…

The Nattering Nabobs of the Left

Whenever I think about liberals, I feel the wires in my brain begin to sizzle. What in the world makes them say and do such absurd things? For instance, why do journalists insist on lying about their political affiliation? When half of them claim to be Independents and only 20% confess to being registered Democrats,…

“A Primer For GOP Candidates” and “Hillary, Barack and Bowe”

I get very discouraged when I come across polls that show Barack Obama’s job approval rate as high as 43.9% and a generic congressional ballot that has Democrats leading Republicans 43% to 42.3%, even though the percentage of those thinking that America is headed in the right direction stands at just 29.8%. Apparently, about 14%…

“Dear Pope Francis: Shut the **** UP!” and “Ridiculing the Ridiculous”

I don’t think that most people would disagree with the statement that race relations in America were better before Barack Obama took office. Between him and the race card hustler Eric Holder, the divide hasn’t been this large in decades. In similar fashion, I believe that Pope Francis has set back Catholic/Jewish relations. Although his…

Cutting Through The Muck

While the Left buries us in lies and obfuscation, those on the Right can often be trusted to keep it short, sweet and revelatory. For instance, the following two sentences contain more honest commentary about our society than 10 years of the Congressional Record: (1) We are told not to judge all Muslims by the…

“Seeking Answers” and “Hey, Dude”

H.L. Mencken, who was referred to as “The Sage of Baltimore” by people besides H.L. Mencken, at least until he shared his Nazi sympathies, at which point they began referring to him as “The Loony Tune of Baltimore,” once observed that “For every complex question, there is an answer that is simple, obvious and wrong.”…

“The Cesspool at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave” and “Cruel & Unusual Punishment”

A friend of mine, after taking note of Obama’s approach to foreign affairs, has decided that his doctrine is to speak softly and carry a big grudge. But if you stop and think about it, that also sums up his domestic policies, which seem aimed at burdening the middle class with additional taxes; a health…
