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.

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.

Joe Biden E-Mails Me

If you ever get signed up for one Democrat/liberal e-mail list, you will eventually be signed up for all Democrat/liberal e-mail lists. While covering the 2008 election, I signed up for e-mail alerts from the Obama campaign and my inbox is routinely flooded with crap. However, it’s useful to see what kind of desperate appeals […]

Think Of The U.S. As Walmart, And Nancy Pelosi As A Demented Greeter

by Smitty Botox Barbie puts a cosmetically crafted smile on matters: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi will travel to the southern border of the U.S. on Saturday to be briefed by Customs and Border Protection on the flood of unaccompanied minors entering the country. The California Democrat will also meet with a group of children […]

Our Decadent Elite: Rich Liberals and the Progressive Politics of Daddy’s Money

“Turbulent, discontented men of quality, in proportion as they are puffed up with personal pride and arrogance, generally despise their own order.
