If This Were A Real Civil War, The Left-Wing Would Be Bleeding Kansas Right Now

If This Were A Real Civil War, The Left-Wing Would Be Bleeding Kansas Right Now

Remember that left-wing civil war I wrote about yesterday? Well, the administration just fired a pretty big double canister shot right into the faces of their blogging backers (via memeorandum). When Robert Gibbs attacked the professional left he didn’t specify anyone by name, but the assumption was that it was cable personalities, disaffected interest groups, […]

Yesterday, the President, who has seen his approval ratings drop so far that he can see Sarah Palin from his own backyard, held a town hall meeting. He hoped, I suppose, that he could drum up a bit good press and a couple helpful soundbytes on a friendly network in front of a friendly crowd. […]

Halperin: Why Won’t Those Awful Republicans Help the President Win?

Halperin: Why Won’t Those Awful Republicans Help the President Win?

I’m as puzzled as Mark Hemingway by this little chunk of propaganda from Mark Halperin. For a guy who was famous for playing cards with his colleagues in the Illinois legislature, Barack Obama isn’t showing much of a poker face these days. The President and his top advisers have betrayed visible annoyance at the Republicans’ failure […]

By now I’m sure you’ve heard that the President got a little colloquial in his Labor Day speech before a friendly Big Labor crowd in Wisconsin. He was doing fine until he decided to improvise about the “powerful interests” who talk about him “like a dog”. This got the blogosphere buzzing. Most of the folks […]

Here’s What You Need to Know About the President’s Iraq Speech

The President is due to read a speech in just a few minutes on the state of affairs, and our stunning victory, in Iraq. All you really need to know about the speech are three things: The President spent more time turning our Oval Office into something resembling a rich guy’s rumpus room than he […]

I’m not prepared to call this Jake Tapper piece journalism. It reads like a tiny bit of uninspired propaganda, like Tapper felt obliged to write the post and swing a stick desultorily on the President’s behalf. A new poll from the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life indicates that the number of Americans who erroneously […]

Can anyone tell me what the President’s POV on the Ground Zero Mosque is after his comments on Friday night, his walkback on Saturday, and the White House’s walkback of his walkback later in the day? As best I can tell, the President believes that the Muslims behind the Cordoba Project have the Constitutional right […]

For reasons known only to himself, the President dispatched his faithful flop-sweater Robert Gibbs to deliver a slap to the President’s most ardent stooges supporters that would have made Moe Howard proud. During an interview with The Hill in his West Wing office, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs blasted liberal naysayers, whom he said […]

Apparently, I am fated not to do any in-depth writing until later this evening, so let me share a few quick links with you. Duane Lester takes the notion that America right now is “pre-revolutionary” and sets it properly in time. Michelle Malkin wants to know why Barack Obama is putting so much money and […]

The segment of black America* who follow Democrats come hell or high water is learning a hard lesson today. The administration promised to send $1.5 billion to Arkansas to help Blanche Lincoln out of a re-election mess. You know, the same old tactic of using your money to buy votes. However, President Obama has also […]
