Beck and O'Reilly: Partners in Crime?

Something very strange happened this week concerning the critical vote of Ben Nelson on the Senate healthcare legislation.

 With his typical hysteria, Glenn Beck announced on his December 16 Fox News telecast that after receiving the information from three sources, he was obliged to report thatRead full post »

Obama in Oslo: Wising Up or More Waffling?

Obama's acceptance speech in Oslo strongly suggests that he is finally getting a grip on the dynamics of the world scene and the Islamic threat that dominates it.  Most significantly, he seems to realize, finally, that the key to achieving national fervor at home is to tap into the outrage that… Read full post »

Obama at West Point

As Obama droned on in his bloodless academic style—the watching-a-tennis match-from-the-net eye directions, the irritatingly predictable voice drops at the end of each sentence—the nation and the world got a pretty good measure of the man who not only would be president, but who actually… Read full post »

Obama: A Case Study in Indecisiveness


Obama:  A Case Study in Indecisiveness


It is axiomatic that a candidate’s challenge is to muddle for the middle so that the requisite votes can be obtained for a victory.  Being all things to all people generally works in a political campaign.


But having come… Read full post »

One Turkey Pardons Another

I wouldn't be as forgiving of what Obama is doing to this country.  I guess the real turkey is a Democrat.

I received only spotty reports of what went down with "Uncle" Tom Turkey, but I got the impression that the Obama pardon was being attributed to his daughters' aversion to… Read full post »

Obama Bends Again

Among all the socialist advisors to the President, can't he find someone who knows something about protocols to be followed when meeting foreign figures? 

 We know that Obama on his own hasn't a clue about these things.  Why should he?  It's not a big issue at Harvard Law School,… Read full post »

Thank God Obama Is So Deliberative

Following in the ample footprints of the lady in New York 23, Abdullah ditto is withdrawing from the approaching run-off election in Afghanistan.  If I remember correctly, this election is the very same as that identified by no fewer than two Obama henchmen as the event that required resolution… Read full post »

Obama--Our New Captain Queeg?

Obama--Our New Captain Queeg?

Obama's vacillation on the pressing issue of troop levels in Afghanistan and a host of other issues where he has betrayed campaign promises and avoided important decisions in favor of pursuing photo ops and other self-aggrandizing occasions raises the issue of whether ou… Read full post »

Scozzafava's Heroic Sacrifice

In an earthshattering political move, yet to be reported on S or OS (hmm), Diedre Scozzafava has terminated her campaign for House representative for the 23rd Congressional District in New York State.

 This is a really WOW moment, for only two days ago, Ms. Scozzafava and her Democratic opponent… Read full post »

Gay Pride--Legitimate or Undeserved?

The Myths of Gay, Female, and Black Pride


There is certainly no shortage of oppressed minorities in contemporary American life—gays, women, and blacks are certainly high on the list.


Each minority has had its champions, persons who have courageously and notoriously fought for ration… Read full post »

Joe Lieberman--My Hero

From the beginning of the last, or at least most recent, presidential campaign  (after all, even a klutz like Obama can't halt the ongoing electoral process--indeed, his cowardly clumsiness makes its future workings especially critical to the health of this country), I thought that McCain a… Read full post »

Obama: What Kind of Fool Am I?

Obama:  What Kind of Fool Am I?


Today’s broadcast of Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, son of the very liberal and iconic Mike Wallace I believe, demonstrated just how ludicrous is the claim by Obama and his advisors that Fox is not a real news network.


After an in-depth inte… Read full post »

Leibovitz is overrated. A much less lauded photog would have asked the President to put on a jacket for Christ's sake and would have more cleverly balanced the whites, blacks, and greys to avoid a pictorial display that is a virtual metaphor for segregation. Also, it's so clutchy as to be… Read full post »

Obama gets recommendations from his generals as to how to avoid failure in achieving the Afghanistan objectives Obama himself set months earlier.  He asks for it to be kept under wraps for awhile so he can think it over.  To explain the unexplainable, Rahm Emanuel and John Kerry announce "s… Read full post »

Obama v. Fox

The Fight That Obama Can’t Win


As faithfully chronicled on Salon and more visible sites and media, the list of complaints the Left has against Obama is growing.  Obama is not terribly concerned about this for the simple reason that the Left has nowhere else to go.  So detainees/… Read full post »

Scam Alert

I just received a long personal message in the mold of the scams that each of us, I am sure, receive as daily catches in our spam filters.  Once I got the drift of the message, I didn't bother to read the whole thing (and please, Roger, don't write and tell… Read full post »

Just saw a heart-rending clip of another eye-sore from the Obama Administration telling a group of high school students that one of her two philosophical favorites was Mao Tse Tung.  No, her other favorite was not Adolf Hitler, presumably because he didn't murder nearly enough people to qua… Read full post »

Obama gummed it again last night with his speech at the gay dinner.  Words, but no teeth.

Clinton sought to be all things to all people by coming up with the DADT compromise in the first place.  He purportedly did so on the advice of his military leaders, who counseled that… Read full post »

Obama's Unearned Prize

Obama:  Peace at Any Prize


Giving the Nobel Peace Prize to Obama is not as surprising as many are saying.


Those who resented the United States and Bush for the then president’s dogged determination to put his country, already first, firster are seeking to reinforce and reward t… Read full post »

Obama's Czar Follies: The Latest

"I hope you used a condom?"  Sounds like an advocate of safe sex.  That's, I guess, why the speaker is now Obama's Safe School Czar.

The only problem is that the speaker was talking to a teenager who was seeking counsel about his having had sex with a much older man. … Read full post »

"I Detest Cheap Sentiment."

On a lonely country road, Karen Richards (Celeste Holm) asks Margo Channing (Bette Davis) if she, Margo, wants to continue to listen to Liszt’s, Liebestraum, on the car radio.  Margo assents to silence with the line, "I detest cheap sentiment."   I don't think that's being fair t… Read full post »

When I was a kid, having men show up in white coats usually meant that someone was about to be carted off to the loony bin.

Now, I'm perfectly prepared to concede that the current head resident of the White House is philosophically putrid, incompetent, and pompous, but I've not yet… Read full post »

There seems to be a proportional relationship between the accumulating missteps of the Obama Administration and interest in past politics.  I wonder why.

As Obama waffles on such insignificant matters as homeland bloody security and the struggle against radical Islamic terrorism, as he tells us… Read full post »
