Why Does President Obama Hate Christmas? (UPDATE: Bloggers Save Christmas!)

Why Does President Obama Hate Christmas? (UPDATE: Bloggers Save Christmas!)

Just when you think our President can’t descend one more inch into the unfathomably deep well of ridiculousness, he exceeds all expectations and drops a whole foot. Recently, our President promised that he would not wait for Congress to save us from our economic morass.

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 honestly have no idea what authority the Department of Justice has to raid two different Gibson Guitar factories twice in the past two years, shut it down for at least a day, seize files and real property, and hold that property for more than a year without one word of explanation to the rightful […]

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 […]

You may think you have plumbed the depths of idiocy in the debt ceiling debate, but you have not. I warn you, if you continue to read this post, you will come across an idea so stupid that it may well blast large parts of knowledge from your brain that you may not be able […]

This is not only incredibly arrogant of Bill Kristol, it’s also completely wrong. To govern is to choose. To vote is to choose. To vote against John Boehner on the House floor this week in the biggest showdown of the current Congress is to choose to vote with Nancy Pelosi. To vote against Boehner is […]

Oh, dear. The Republicans have done it now. They’ve gone and made the effete left-wingers at the New York Times so miffed that they felt the need to write an editorial full of many harsh words. House Republicans have lost sight of the country’s welfare. It’s hard to conclude anything else from their latest actions, […]

Okay, so here’s the latest in the debt ceiling debate: 1) Republicans, led by Speaker John Boehner, have offered a deal that will raise the debt ceiling, put a cap on spending for the next ten years that might cut spending at some point in the future, and empanel yet another commission to suggest some […]

The White House has chosen to take the low road today in the debt ceiling debate: [blackbirdpie url="http://twitter.com/#!/jaketapper/status/93015804483866625"]   Not only was it a low-class thing to say, it’s also an outright lie. The GOP’s “Cut, Cap, and Balance” plan isn’t a dodge or a duck (or a dip, dive, or dodge either). I honestly don’t know if Tapper challenged his […]

Conservatives have made a lot of hay this past week over DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s contention that Democrats now “own the economy” and for good reason. Democrats have owned the economy for quite a few years as its been Democrats whose Brobdingnagian budgets have acted as a fairly steady brake on the economy. It was […]
