This morning Jeffrey Anderson noted that the latest Rasmussen poll had a couple interesting things to say about Obamacare. First, the voting public wants it gone — not just partially gone or mostly gone, but erased from the very fabric of space and time like a cupcake after a two-week Michael Moore fast. Second, independent [...]

So, what is Rep Elijah Cummings (D-MD) really trying to say here? Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said Sunday that African-Americans want President Obama to “fight harder” to create jobs in the struggling U.S. economy. [...] “Almost every African-American person I have talked to has said they want him to fight, and fight harder,” Cummings said. [...]

Anytime you get a situation where President Obama lectures the American people on how the economy works, you know it’ll end in laughter and tears. Today was no different as Our Planmaker-In-Chief stood before a crowd in Minnesota and told them that automakers have no idea in the world what kind of vehicle people really [...]

We now know the names of nine of the twelve members of Congress who will make up the Joint Committee. This committee’s job is to find at least $1.5 trillion in “deficit reduction” from the next ten years of federal budgets that will likely total more than $37 trillion. John Heyward has a good bit [...]

It’s Sunday and you know what that means. Yep, the Democrats ran to their bestest buddies in the MSM to preach the Gospel of Blame. The S&P downgrade wasn’t their fault, no way, no how. They are blameless, helpless victims, trod underfoot by a vicious minority called the Tea Parties. Such left-wing luminaries as David [...]

I get in trouble sometimes with my fellow right-wingers for insisting that “bipartisan” “compromise” on a budget deal is a carnival game rigged to bring in the rubes so that those who run the game — we call them “members of Congress” — can shake us so hard that money falls out of our grandchildren.

I’m afraid I don’t share the general exultation of the right side of the blogosphere today over the debt ceiling deal that will undoubtedly become law today. Hooray, says my friend Jeff: The Republicans scored a political win that slowed down the runaway spending locomotive! Hooray, says my friend Pete: Republicans like Allen West and Renee Elmers [...]

Here we go…again. It looks like the debt ceiling circus may actually be at the end of the endgame. The President trudged to the microphone tonight and announced a debt ceiling deal with the Republicans. He also mumbled some stuff about evil rich people, but we’re pretty much ignoring that as reflex at this point. [...]
