The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

They Found Peggy Joseph!

Everybody remembers the Florida woman who, during the 2008 campaign, gleefully declared in a TV news interview after an Obama campaign rally that if Obama was elected, she wouldn’t have to worry about putting gas in her car or paying her mortgage. Over the years, whenever the headlines told of bad economic news I’d wonder […]

Democrats Dump Obama

Hope and Change have become a campaign liability: Obama’s approval ratings are in the basement and show no signs of improving, so Democrats are keeping their distance. On the stump, in campaign ads and at fundraisers, Obama’s absence is increasingly conspicuous. Democrats are voicing their displeasure with his policies and campaign advisers are telling candidates […]

Presidential Imperialism

Jonathan Turley has a column by President Obama’s high-handed, irresponsible and unconstitutional exercise of unilateral power: In our system, there is no license to go it alone. Rather, the Republic’s democratic architecture requires compromise. The process is designed to moderate legislation and create a broader consensus in support of these laws. Nor is congressional refusal to […]

Obama’s Jihad-Loving DHS Adviser

Add @MohamedElibiary to the list of Obama administration scandals that the Democrat-Media Complex expect us to ignore. Ace of Spades was all over this story last night: “By the way, this ‘senior fellow’ at DHS is a Muslim Brotherhood booster. He called Mohammad Morsi, the now-deposed Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt, Egypt’s Nelson Mandela.” But […]

The Media’s President

“Obama: Anatomy of a World Leader,” by Alex Gray (detail) Da Tech Guy makes the obvious point: The reason the media aren’t going after the IRS scandal is because Barack Obama is their president. Not since JFK’s fictitious “Camelot” have the media invested so heavily in maintaining the image of a president, an image of competence […]

Call Implausible IRS Lie About ‘Lost’ Emails What It Is: Obstruction of Justice

Democrats lie routinely and habitually, and are accustomed to having their lies accepted without question by the media. It is therefore significant that the media are openly mocking the preposterous claim that Lois Lerner’s emails have been “lost”: Last Friday afternoon, the Internal Revenue Service claimed that Lois Lerner, a former executive tasked with overseeing […]

Back to Iraq

The “optics,” as they say, are unpleasant: Nearly 300 armed American forces are being positioned in and around Iraq to help secure U.S. assets as President Barack Obama nears a decision on an array of options for combating fast-moving Islamic insurgents, including airstrikes or a contingent of special forces. The U.S. and Iran also held […]

Shorter Krugman: ‘Kool-Aid, Anyone?’

Delusional partisan cheerleading: Several times in recent weeks I’ve found myself in conversations with liberals who shake their heads sadly and express their disappointment with President Obama. Why? I suspect that they’re being influenced, often without realizing it, by the prevailing media narrative. The truth is that these days much of the commentary you see […]
