His newest product is a Magical Obama Jobs Machine that sucks money out of our pockets and the pockets of our children at one end and produces shiny new teachers, police […]

The first domino falls, quietly and without much of a push. But there are others, and their falling will make a lot more noise.

No politician can succeed without mastering “optics”. That is to say anyone who aspires to political office has to be keenly aware of how their actions, the venues from which they speak, and the activities they pursue publicly, will be seen through the eyes of the average voter who is not motivated chiefly by politics.

There are a couple posts over at Ending Spending of which I’m particularly proud. I’d like it if you clicked over there and left a nice comment or two, if you’ve the mind to do so. It’s easy to make light of “waste, fraud, and abuse” but when you look at how much money our […]

I’m pretty sure that if someone invented a Gall-O-Meter and pointed it toward Washington, the resulting overload explosion would leave a Chicxulub-sized crater. The Department of Labor, headed by anti-capitalist Hilda Solis, has launched its own investigation into SolyndraScam. It’s not looking toward the White House or the “green jobs” loan program or the board […]

Things are moving so quickly and in so many different directions that it’s hard for me to fix one particular narrative in the time I have during the day to write blog posts. Instead, let me put together […]

Since the GOP opted not to give a rebuttal to the President’s big jobs speech tonight, I decided to make my own. It’s a little over four minutes long and contains many of the same themes in the sample rebuttal I offered yesterday, but I did have to do a bit of rewriting since Governors […]

When the President stands before America Thursday night, on national television, and introduces us to his plan to spend several hundred billion dollars that our children will have to pay off because there’s no way in heck we’ll get to it by the time we pay down the trillions of dollars we already owe, he’ll […]

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 […]

Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said Sunday that African-Americans want President Obama to “fight harder” to create jobs in the struggling U.S. economy.
