An Unbalanced President

Obama-Smiling

President Obama has probably repeated the phrase “balanced approach” when talking about budget and deficit solutions, over 100 times at this point.  If you just listen to him saying that phrase over and over, you probably think that he is interested in raising some taxes, as well as cutting spending to solve our country’s debt problem. …

The President Can’t Govern

Office-Space-My-stapler

The President’s history of negotiations with Republicans has led to the remarkable feet of making Washington DC even more dysfunctional.  The President has behaved as if the country is split roughly 80-20 in his favor.  Through his negotiations and public pronouncements he has exploited every opportunity where he has had even the slightest advantage.  This…

The B-Movie Presidency With A-List Media Compliance

The other day, something prompted me to think of an old movie I haven’t seen in a long, long time. “I Come In Peace” is its name. It’s a low-budget, science-fiction flick from the early ’90s that stars Hollywood action icon, Dolph Lundgren. The movie was such a huge hit, that I think I’m one…

Obama Prepares for a Speech

THE PRESIDENT’S SECRETARY ENTERS THE OVAL OFFICE SECRETARY: Sir, the chief demographer of the United States is here. PRESIDENT: Show him in. DEMOGRAPHER: Mr. President, I… PRESIDENT: Be quick about it. I still have to finish writing my speech  for tonight, ordering all registered Republicans to wear yellow armbands. DEMOGRAPHER: That’s exactly why I am…

Name That Tax Increase

The weather channel made a unilateral decision this season to start naming winter storms.  The large snowstorms called Nemo and Plato are recent examples of this.  Their argument is that this is a better way to communicate about an upcoming storm and track the destruction, such as has been used for hurricanes for decades.  Some…

State of the Union, Why Don’t They Ask?

state-of-the-union

The President laid out his agenda in the State of the Union Address, and it was filled with initiatives and statements similar to what he has said before.  It gives the media the opportunity to ask questions that they have neglected in the past.  Statements that were presented as facts also need clarification.  Up until…

Was This Rubio’s Fatal Sip?

Did Florida Senator Marco Rubio, a likely Republican contender for president in 2016, destroy his political career by taking a sip of water on national television? CNN and some of the other slavishly Democratic-liberal news outlets seem to think so – or at least hope so. Rubio was giving a speech rebutting President Obama’s State…

Are You on Obama’s Kill List?

photo-obama-drone

Recently we’ve been hearing a lot about President Obama’s “kill list.” He has taken full charge of the effort to bump off anti-American terrorists in such hell holes as Pakistan. Probably, as Rick said in “Casablanca,” he is doing them a favor. Who wants to live in Pakistan if he can be up in heaven…
