Obama Wins — and Loses

Obama Wins

Liberals don’t really believe America is all that exceptional.  But they apparently are convinced that Barack Obama is. How else to explain his victory?  How could any politician win with such a dismal record? During his entire term unemployment has been chronically high.  Economic growth has been chronically low. A majority of Americans think the…

In Case You’ve Forgotten

POLITICS G20 202428

During Monday’s Presidential debate on foreign policy, Governor Romney reminded us of President Obama’s apology tour in 2009.  As if I could forget it!  (By the way, that’s President Obama bowing to the King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia although the spin was that he tripped…) Just in case you’ve forgotten, here’s a sampling of our President’s apologies…

Missing in Action: Stimulus Sheriff Joe Biden

Remember when President Obama bragged about Joe Biden’s fiscal discipline cred in 2009? “To you, he’s Mr. Vice President, but around the White House, we call him the Sheriff,” Obama warned government employees. “Because if you’re misusing taxpayer money, you’ll have to answer to him.” Fast-forward to 2012. Call in the search teams. Since being…

You May Be a Racist If….

Just about every week I see a headline where someone is calling someone else a racist.  It’s boring, tedious, and tiresome.  Those that bandy around the “R” word are just intellectually challenged.  First, they probably don’t even know the meaning of the word “racist” and, second, it’s much easier to stop a conversation in its…

The Presidency Should Not Be a Participation Trophy

There’s been a lot of talk about the participation trophy in recent years – you know, that prize we hand out to every member of our children’s intramural sports team at the end of each season, regardless of how well they play. Many people believe it’s become a cultural symbol of how politically-correct we’ve become…

My Dream Speech for Mitt Romney

Mitt-Romney-Republican-National-Convention

My fellow Americans, my fellow Republicans: The 2012 election is not an election between two men but between two entirely different visions of America. President Obama and I are simply the standard bearers of opposing, and may I add, irreconcilable visions of what America is and should be. The Republican Party and I represent American…

The ‘Corporate Wife’ and Class Prejudice

Ann Romney

Suppose, next week, in Charlotte, a conservative commentator refers to Michelle Obama as a ‘government wife.’ No need to speculate on the howl that would be raised; the progressives’ outrage and media’s selective sensitivities would spew hyperbole not seen and heard since, well, last week when Mitt Romney joked about his own birth certificate. Like…

Making Use of Lemons

When you’ve finished this article, Burt hopes you’ll enjoy Bye, Bye, Birdbrain. Some people ask me why I don’t seem to take the harm Obama and his cronies are doing to America more seriously. The fact is I take it very seriously. But what good does crying about it do anyone? I prefer to combat…
