Delegating the Blame

Until the current administration came along, never in American history had so many people claimed to be taking responsibility without taking even the least little bit. Some leaders take pride in knowing how to delegate responsibility. Obama and his crew only know how to delegate blame. It’s been a while, but surely you recall that…

Did Eric Holder Lie to Congress?

On May 15, Attorney General Eric Holder testified before the House Judiciary Committee and said this about the Justice Department’s investigation of national security leaks to journalists. “In regard to potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material:  This is not something I’ve ever been involved in, heard of, or would think would…

When the Ends Justify the Meanness

Susan Rice

Those old, angry, white Republican guys are at it again.  They just can’t control their worst instincts.  They see a black face and they go nuts. Now they’re going after U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, not because she went on five Sunday news shows and told a fairy tale about why four Americans were killed in Benghazi, but…

Romney’s Sister Souljah Moment

Do Brian Terry’s Parents Deserve Less Attention Than Cindy Sheehan Got?

Brian Terry

There are many elements of the ATF’s botched Fast and Furious gun-walking operation that are worthy of attention. It’s a compelling story, really: The U.S. government loses track of an arsenal of weapons that end up being used by a Mexican drug cartel in the murder of a young border patrol agent named Brian Terry….

Breaking the Tyler Cycle

Someone sent me something called the Tyler Cycle. Alexander Fraser Tyler, a Scottish historian (1747-1813), allegedly discovered that democratic societies, such as the one that existed in ancient Athens, are doomed to repeat a vicious circle that begins in Bondage, then proceeds through Spiritual Faith, Courage, Liberty, Abundance, Selfishness, Complacency, Apathy and Dependence, before inevitably…

The Nutty Things Liberals Say

I know that those on the Left pride themselves not only on their compassion and on holding the deed to the moral high ground, but also to having brains so enormous that they can barely make it through doorways. Well, it ain’t necessarily so. For instance, while speaking at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network convention…
