The Audacity of Arrogance

Does this president just not get it? A better summation would be to say that yes, he does get it, he simply does not care! President Obama, oh ye who proclaims we should all put this country before politics, arrogance shines bright upon thee! The latest attempt of this president– who is the president of all American people- is nothing less ...

The No-Cajone Pony is Acting Stupidly

I’d give my left flipper to be the teleprompter operator on September 8th, in the year of our Pronoun-in-Chief, the Unicorn King, Precedent Uhhhhbama (Peace be upon him), OediPOTUS Wrecks, Obama-Lama-Ding-Dong, OOO (Occupant of the Oval Office; a.k.a. “Triple O”), His “O”ily-ness, the Hopiate of the Masses, Barackus Hubris Maximus, and His Travesty. Imagine His Phoniness, staring grimly at TOTUS ...

Obama Blinks – Moves Speech to Thursday

Despite having said that it should be country before politics, Obama put his politics before almost everything – including politics.

The Debt “Deal” Is A Bad Idea

For what feels like the millionth time, I am utterly disgusted by the goings on in Washington.  This, of course, is nothing new, but the stakes are much higher this time and I feel like I’m watching a slow-motion train-wreck in action. For weeks, we’ve been warned by Congressional leaders in both parties, and by the President, himself, that August ...

Liberalism and Child Play

I’m seeing a certain attitude from the left that I usually see in children. I’m talking actions that could be summed up in childhood hit phrases such as “I know you are but what am I”, “It wasn’t me”, and our dear leader’s favorite, “Lalalalala I’m not listening. Lalalalala.” Thing is, when any grown adult acts this way (especially if ...

Compromise is a good thing!

Compromise can be a good thing,  but let me tell you what I thought yesterday about the happenings on the Hill. I still wondered why Speaker Boehner, who was on the Sean Hannity show a few days ago, stated, “The Mack Penny Bill was worth looking at” had done absolutely nothing with regard to that bill? Even the media is ...

Channeling Reagan

The Republicans in the House have a real opportunity to channel one of the greatest Conservative leaders of all time. But they won’t. While privately wishing for a GOP presidential candidate to materialize out of thin air that would be another Reagan, the established, moderate, old-guard GOP is failing to grab hold of the opportunity to channel him. The country ...

Expectations that the runaway spending in Washington will end under his leadership.
