Obama fatigue is setting in…

by Steve MacDonald October 31, 2014

Setting?  I was fatigued by Obama’s voice before the beginning of the end of Recovery Summer 2009.  Probably sooner.  Obama was the cure for my Bush era “we don’t hear enough from the office of the President” period.  While Bush didn’t say so much about what was going on, the ‘O’ on Obama was for […]

by Skip October 31, 2014

I really like the one that Steve has up – a bit “non Halloween-ish” but if you have to go off topic, go patriotic!   However, once again deciding that political and government issues MUST be thrust into every area of our privates lives comes the US Department of Energy.  Never leave ANY occasion alone in […]

Priorities – elections are about Priorities. This one is about Obama’s

by Skip October 30, 2014

Let’s revisit this from my last post, shall we? “The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works — whether it helps families find jobs at a decent wage, care they can afford, a retirement that is dignified.”            – President Barack Obama, Inauguration, 1/20/09 […]

A Duel Might Be Best For Both Nations!

by Mike October 29, 2014

We learn today, courtesy of a thinly veiled hit piece on Benjamin Netanyahu, written by Jeffrey Goldberg in The Atlantic, That the administration holds Bibi in extreme contempt for daring to put his nation and people first. In addition to minor insults like “myopic,” “reactionary” and “recalcitrant,” an official at the State Department said to […]

DId you know that Obama has declared every neighborhood to be racist?

by Skip October 27, 2014

“The Orwellian-sounding regulation would force some 1,200 municipalities to redraw zoning maps to racially diversify suburban neighborhoods” Indeed!  And one more thing that Obama will do via Executive Order (via the Federal Sustainable Communities Initiative by the Federal Depts of  HUD / EPA / DOT) is take over all local zoning.  We’ve been sounding this […]

Guest Post By – Peter Lemiska To the Editor: There is a growing sense in the country that America is in decline.

Before a couple of family matters popped up, I had been trying to find a better description of this event as well as an actual transcription from it on Canal+; all I am seeing is a bunch of “cut and paste” posts which always tend to make me leery but coming out of this source, I tend […]

I don’t follow my twitter feed much at night but I happened on it this evening and the Twitterverse (NH Edition) is all over the debates.  Guinta and Shea-Porter, Shaheen and Brown, there’s even residue from Kuster and Garcia.  (Annie is mean!)

Former State Senate Candidate Steve Kenda joins us eventually–(paving delay on 93 North)–for a detailed discussion on New Hampshire’s energy and electricity situation –not good, by the way.  (That discussion carries over into segment three.) But before we get there we ask “where are the Irish reparations from the Federal government?”  We discuss a few […]

So Kelly Ayotte, is this the Amnesty you have been looking for?

Sorry, but here at the ‘Grok, if you tell us one thing during your campaign for office (adamantly anti-Illegal Alien Amnesty) and then flip on the issue for no discernable reason (other than what the picture shows to your left) (yes, she was then for it after being against it), we tend to take notice […]

Meet President Obama’s Eblola ‘Flack’ jacket. Ron Klain is a sharp-elbowed Democratic political operative with no medical expertise. Tapping him as “Ebola czar” may not be the president’s best move when, as it is, no one can believe a word the Obama administration says. And that’s not just because Mr. Klain is yet another lobbyist […]

Employees who never take responsibility for what happens on their watch are hard to stomach. We have seen Obama tell potentially exposed West Africans it’s OK to ride the bus, while the CDC tells potentially exposed Americans to stay off public transportation. We have seen the CDC tell an infected nurse to ride on an […]

Party of the Rich President Obama is sometimes beyond parody — especially when he plays the populist. Last week, Obama headlined a $32,000-a-plate fundraiser at the $26 million Greenwich, Conn., estate of a real estate mogul. During that dinner I noticed an email from Obama in my inbox warning me that “If Republicans win, we […]
