If you turn on the news today, you’ll probably hear some version of a story about Mitt Romney and whether he really did fire a bajillion people while he was at Bain Capital. See, the Obama campaign really wants you to believe that Romney is some horrible real-life hybrid of the Monopoly Man, and Snidely […]

This morning, the head of the Democratic National Committee and member of Congress Debbie Wasserman-Schultz tweeted this picture. I know what she’s trying to get across. The Republicans, who preach fiscal sanity, continue to waste our money on a partisan political crusade against Obamacare and they ought to give it up because it’s here to […]

I understand that we conservatives have to beat up John Roberts. After all, he apparently destroyed America as we know it on Friday when in his Obamacare decision he… …well, wait. What exactly did he do? I don’t want to get between conservatives and our various displays of outrage and outbursts vituperation, but can we […]

Brian Williams was right last night when he said the story of Operation Fast and Furious and yesterday’s contempt hearing was complex. Perhaps if he and the rest of his merry MSM brigade had reported diligently on the story, it’d be easier to understand.

Does this seem like a smart move to you? I ask because I can see about a half dozen ways it could go terribly wrong. President Obama has tapped Sen. John Kerry, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, to play Republican Mitt Romney in mock debate rehearsals, Obama campaign officials and the senator’s office confirmed Monday. […]

I don’t expect members of Congress to be geniuses. As conceived by the Founders, Congress was intended to be composed of regular citizens, so that you’d get the normal range of smarts, experience, and savvy as you would if you scooped up any 535 people. However, since the federal government has taken so much power […]

President Obama gave a speech Wednesday, a part of which genuinely boggled my mind. Now, I know you’re probably thinking I’ll quote a stirring bit of admiration of the heroes who stormed the beaches of Normandy so many years ago. After all, Wednesday was the anniversary of the Day of Days. But no. The President […]

Newt Gingrich ended his campaign yesterday with a statement I’m sure people on both the left and right will ridicule whenever his name comes up over the next couple of years. I won’t be one of them. See, I backed Newt for the Republican nomination and, quite honestly, I’m sorry to see him go. I […]

I’ve heard it said that President Obama has an ego large enough that it could be clearly photographed from space, but I won’t hear of it. He’s as humble a man as you’re ever likely to meet, not at all given to plastering his image on every gew-gaw imaginab… …oh. Well never mind then. WH […]
