Jeb Bradley just lied to his constituents

by Skip July 25, 2014

Like all politicians, NH State Senator Jeb Bradley sends out eblasts all the time.  Now that it is campaign season, everyone should be expecting a whole lot more from all the candidates.  So, why the title?  I think I know – and I believe that Bradley makes it glaringly obvious (reformatted, emphasis mine) in this […]

Given the situation that Russia’s Putin has put Obama into….

by Skip July 24, 2014

…Putin has made Obama’s words to Mitt Romney during the debate “the 80s called and they want their policies back” look stupid, hollow, mocking, trite, and callow. Schnadenfreude.  And for those of you who are trying to forget those “triumphalism words” (gee, wasn’t that the term you Dems used against Romney??), here’s a little reminder: […]

Caption Contest Anyone?

Mr. Obama is looking though a microscope.  Lab technicians are looking at each other.  I’d call this a Target rich environment.

And when one Branch refuses to defend it self via the Constitution? A Crisis

by Skip July 18, 2014

Our ancient pledge to live in a nation of laws means nothing if one party aids the executive in undermining those laws on a whim. — Thomas H. Crown (@ThomasHCrown) July 9, 2014 A Constitutional crisis is when one branch arrogates power to itself and the others are powerless or unwilling to stop it. — […]

Peggy Joseph then: not worry about my mortgage. Now: “a little man”

by Skip July 18, 2014

Most of us on the Right remember this lady upon Obama becoming President: “I wouldn’t have to worry about putting gas in my car. I wouldn’t have to worry about paying my mortgage. You know – if I help him, he’ll help me.”.  A lot of us were fearful, for we did believe him when he […]

Walt Havenstein: Another episode of “I didn’t know what it REALLY meant back then”, but does he now?

by Skip July 15, 2014

There exists a phrase that came to be when politics realized a fundamental truth: the Internet never forgets.  Some politicians, above a certain age, have had a hard time coming to grips that whatever they have said, wherever they were, once uploaded to the ‘Net, were not going to go away – forever. Words that they wish […]

Obama wants to tear down wrong wall

by Skip July 14, 2014

I have to admit that John from Powerline, in addition to having the Ramirez cartoon, also has the best line of the night (which means additional sorrow coming at us): One of the problems with Barack Obama is, you get the feeling that he thinks the Evil Empire is us.

Why is it that only Fed agencies undergoing Congressional oversight are losing hard drives?

by Skip July 14, 2014

Lois Lerner of the IRS is the most famous example of a Federal Agency who has been weaponized by the Obama Administration (even, according to random posts I’ve seen, more than Tricky Dicky – disgraced President Nixon (R) or one termer President LBJ (D)) and we have been SO treated by the arrogance of the […]

LeBron James knows what Obama and Elizabeth Warren don’t

by Skip July 14, 2014

Caught at The Corner: The line in his [LeBron James] return-to-Cleveland statement that resonates most with us denizens of the North Coast is the following: “In Northeast Ohio, nothing is given. Everything is earned. You work for what you have.” Contrast that statement with Barack Obama’s obtuse, insulting, and dispiriting 2012 observation: ” You didn’t build […]

So Much For Buying The World A Coke!

by Steve MacDonald July 9, 2014

Lightbringer is having a rhetoric deficit on just about every front.  Obama has treated the US Economy like a rental car.  He has only taken a middling interest in international matters, and only when he thought it might burnish his street cred.  The problem there is that he never had any cred to burnish.  The […]

Of COURSE, if a Marine General says the southern border is a problem, Obama ignores him

by Skip July 7, 2014

General Kelly had better be careful how he criticizes Obama’s and La Raza’s  (“The Race”) for completely opening our border with Mexicoor he’s gonna get to retire early (if not outright cashiered out) (emphasis mine, reformatted): A top United States general in charge of protecting the southern border says he’s been unable to combat the steady […]

Cloward-Piven: a veritable Alinsky / Obama army is invading us

by Skip July 7, 2014

Cloward & Piven were two NYU sociologists and Socialists that predicated that by overloading the welfare system and drive New York City so far into debt, it could not recover and Capitalism would have to be replaced by another form of governance (gee, guess which!).  They almost succeeded. Once again, we see it at play […]

Obama Economy Sheds 523,000 Full Time Jobs in June

by Steve MacDonald July 7, 2014
Thumbnail image for Obama Economy Sheds 523,000 Full Time Jobs in June

Yeah, wage growth stinks, and the labor force participation numbers are horrible but the reported unemployment rate is down to 6.1%.  Probably in part because in June the Obama Economy shed 523,000 full-time jobs. Sure, part-time jobs surged, but those are typically entry-level assignments or low-skill positions.  That’s no way to run a recovery.  But […]

If President Obama can’t even manage the White House equal pay, how can he expect us to think he can manage the Country?

by Skip July 2, 2014

Social Justice, Social Justice, Social Justice – that’s all we hear from the Progressives now in control of the Federal Government.  Part of that “social justice” mantra has been wail after wail that men get paid more than women.  The President himself has pontificated through the years that Equal Pay MUST be the law and […]

Obama Scandal Tourney

by Skip July 2, 2014

From outright scandal to Constitutional malfeasance, it’s been hard to keep up with the Obama Dense Pack operation of “fundamentally transforming” of America.  As John Hindraker at Powerline said, go ahead and make up your own and fill in the blanks.  Not to worry (or should we?) about filling it in – this tourney’s got […]

The Contraceptive mandate was not in the bill congress passed that we now call ObamaCare.  HHS just made them up. Obama later had Sibelius create exemptions (without congress) for non-profits on religious grounds that waived any responsibility for the non-profit to pay, and at the same time created rules that would require the insurers to […]

Notable Quote – David Starr

by Skip June 29, 2014

H/T (that would be Hat Tip) to Weekend Pundit for this great observation: As David Starr reminds us, it’s not the number of executive orders the President issues, it’s what’s in them. I have no problem with settling bureaucratic turf battles by executive order. I do have a problem with over riding Congressional votes by […]

GrokBite: Obama has decided that paid leave is mandatory – you only get to decide how to do it.

by Skip June 29, 2014

A rather astonishing remark by Obama’s Rasputin (the power behind the throne), Valerie Jarrett on today’s Meet The Press: I think what the President said was “look, let’s start with the premise that every American should have paid leave and then let’s have a conversation on how to get there.” The assumption left here is […]

Another massive rebuke delivered by a unanimous supreme court.  Obama can’t decide for himself (for the purpose of making recess appointments) if, and when, the US Senate is ‘In Session.’  The Senate decides that (as does the House).  Not Obama.  /slap on wrist.

House Democrats are apologizing to the IRS for having to be subjected to congressional oversight.  (Does the Democrat House orientation day actually cover the role of congress?  Just asking.) This outpouring of liberal empathy for this domestic terror group–operating with the full force of law they claimed for themselves–comes as a result of other members […]
