Obamanomics: Failure Is The New Success

by Smitty Heritage has a piece entitled: ‘Why Obamanomics Has Failed – Annotated’. Questions beginning with ‘Why’ being quite a Smitty-magnet, let’s see what these esteemed think-tankers are swimming in. They pick up with Meltzer at the WSJ: ‘Why Obamanomics Has Failed’. RTWT, but I’ll summarize here. . . .they want new stimulus measures—which is […]

Gibbs Removes Any Shred Of Doubt That He Is A Propaganda Tool

by Smitty (via Blogprof) Now, if Gibbs is such a buffoon that he (a) didn’t watch Brown directly, and instead (b) repeated what a subordinate related, then (c) we should hear of someone getting fired over this. Listen, Gibbs, the White House has a tremendous credibility deficit as it is. Shameful performances such as this […]

Kagan Fight Could Go Late Tonight; UPDATE: Video of ACOG Testimony; UPDATE II: Kagan Lobbied AMA, Too UPDATE III: ‘Late’? Recessed at 5:35

UPDATE 5:45 p.m. ET: Yeah. Three days, very few tough questions, and Pat Leahy closed by congratulating her that this would likely be the last time she ever had to testify. But is it really?

The Two Things I Want From Farrakhan

by Smitty Gateway Pundit links a recent bloviation from Mr. Farrakhan attempting a shakedown of Jewish leaders. At the risk of raising Stacy’s hackles, I’ll reveal that my in-country ancestors fought for the North those years ago. Thus, if LF feels comfortable trying to hold contemporary leaders of any stripe accountable for purported past persecutions, […]

My Question To Terry Jones Was Featured On ‘Front Page With Allen Barton’

by Smitty My highly important question was addressed starting at 10:10. PJTV continues its gradual world conquest. Related, via Insty: Time to shut down the US Federal Reserve? When someone says, as Evans-Pritchard quotes, and I gently VodkaPundit-ize. . . “Economics is hahrd. Really hahrd. You just won’t believe how vastly hugely mind-boggingly hahrd it […]

Elena Kagan, M.D.

Excuse me if  I fail to see how a Harvard Law diploma qualifies Elena Kagan to draft a medical paper on partial-birth abortion: It seems that the most important statement in the famous position paper of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists—a 1996 document that was central to the case of partial-birth-abortion defenders for the subsequent decade […]

Boehner Clings To The New Deal

by Smitty (via Hot Air) My headline is slightly unfair. I should credit Boehner for courageously opening the discussion on managing the sacred cow, rather than having it meander through our future, spreading cowflop in all directions. However, let’s talk butchery. As the bovine flop of FDR’s New Deal, combined with LBJ’s (not so) Great […]

The guy with the camera looks a bit like Will Folks: Hey, I already own the “Elena Kagan nude” Google bomb. Thanks to G.G. for the tip on this one.

Do Liberals Really Care About The ‘Human Condition’?

by Smitty Jay Nordlinger over at the Corner offers this: I’m grateful to both Walter Cronkite and Barbara Walters for something: They admitted, yes, the media are liberal, and a good thing, too. It has to be that way, they said. For — and this is Walters talking — journalism involves the “human condition,” and […]

Obamanomics: Still Not Working

As of 12:40 p.m. today, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is off more than 230 points, down below 9,900. This decline — about 2%, and roughly twice what the futures market had signaled overnight – is probably due to a sharp drop in consumer confidence. This is being interpreted as a strong indicator of a double-dip recession. Timely […]

Subversive Newspaper Columnist

No, not Paul Krugman or Dave Weigel. I’m talking about Vicky Pelaez, a columnist for the Spanish-language El Diario for more than 20 years, who was among the suspected Russian agents rounded up by the FBI yesterday. Patrick Ishmael at Hot Air Green Room: Dig around the Internet and you’ll find a few choice nuggets written by […]
