Why Guantanamo Bay Won't Close Next Year.

Yesterday, President Obama signed an order to close Guantanamo Bay by this time next year. As you might expect, that brought cheers from the MSM and exasperation from the right. I’m not in either camp. In fact, I’m in my very own camp. I don’t think that Gitmo will close at all. I think that […]

Here are a couple useful tidbits on the economy that you’ll find useful. First, the Wall Street Journal issues a corrective to the years of biased and/or ignorant MSM reporting to give a measured accounting of the economy Bush administration. In the end, he got one big thing right and one big thing wrong. The […]

President-Elect Obama is allegedly going to issue an executive order to close the detention facilities at Guantanamo Bay as his first official act as President. But it won’t really close. In fact, it won’t close in the first hundred days of his Presidency or even in the first year. According to the report, all the […]

Barely concealed inside each progressive leftist is a capering homunculus of hatred just dying to come out. Wanting to see how the Web site [Barack Obama's new USAService.org] works, I typed in my hometown zip code in Los Angeles to find events within a 10-mile radius. It pointed me to several events, including a blood […]

Matthew Dowd buys into the popular MSM narrative of […]

Kipling once wrote “Heaven grant us patience with a man in love” and it seems we’re going to need a lot of patience with the MSM for the next four years. The sight of Obama, posing shirtless before the panting brigades of reporters, has given them yet another reason to write yet more embarrassing mash […]

What are three things guaranteed to happen in any Federal government program? Waste, lack of accountability, and did I mention waste? One of the reasons I strongly opposed the TARP bailout program is because the general panic from the Secretary of the Treasury and Congressional Democrats reminded me of someone who sees a fire and […]
