This is the first post of the new version of the old Barack’s White Lies. I’m moving onto a broader forum, which will eventually drop the old name and be rebranded as Real Clear Thinker. Here’s a bit of explanation. I took it in stride when Barack won, and decided that this is a time […]


More silliness about Hillary: Imagine someone so inexperienced as Secretary of State?


Doctrine Air

Thoughts on the Fairness Doctrine from Adam Reilly in the Boston Phoenix. For most of the second half of the 20th century, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) asserted that the right to broadcast — on scarce, publicly owned frequencies — came with civic responsibility. Broadcasters, the FCC held, should devote some of their programming to […]


DOA

14Nov08

Can this be for real, or is it just the usual gameplaying – make women feel good about Barack by pretending to be respecting Hillary? George Stephanopoulos reported Clinton’s name being in the mix last week on Good Morning America, but the buzz grew louder today after Clinton was spotted boarding a flight to Chicago. […]


Now that liberals are in power, it’s important to remind ourselves just how dangerous they can be. For example, the Boston Globe has a delightfully humorous editorial today on fixing the “election mess -” funny but for its utter maliciousness. BARACK OBAMA’S superior get-out-the-vote operation spared the country from another squeaker presidential election, with the […]


Bitter Sweet

14Nov08

It must be with mixed emotions that Barack has announced his resignation from the U.S. Senate, effective Sunday. President-elect Barack Obama is giving up his Illinois U.S. Senate seat effective Sunday, intensifying the jockeying to replace the only African-American in Congress’ upper chamber as lawmakers return next week for a lame-duck session. After all, it’s […]


Truth Be Told

13Nov08

Now that the election is over, the truth about Barack – always available, but protected by some – is flowing more freely. About his friends, for example. FALSANI: Do you have people in your life that you look to for guidance? OBAMA:Well, my pastor [Jeremiah Wright] is certainly someone who I have an enormous amount […]


Tin Men

Who would be dumb enough to fall for this crap. Barack is going back to his sizable donor list looking for more money! It seems that in addition to his 6/10ths of a billion dollars to move into the White House, the Democratic National Committee spent way more than the $100 million in cash it […]


Beast of Burden

13Nov08

What amazing trouble Barack has stepped into. For all the fury over Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson’s $700 billion emergency economic relief fund, it seems downright puny when compared to the running total of the government’s response to the credit crisis. Has his remarkable good luck run out, or is this just the opportunity he wants. […]


It’s the end of the world as we know it. “This is the end of the consumer-based economy,” said Peter Schiff, who runs the investment firm Euro Pacific Capital Inc. in Darien, Conn. “Americans have been buying too much stuff, and now the epic shopping spree is over. It is a permanent change.” Wow. That’s […]


Say Anything

13Nov08

Like most politicians, Barack was willing to say anything to win the presidency. Dig any hole now, we can climb out of it later. A suicide car bomber struck a U.S. military convoy passing through a crowded market in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday, killing at least five civilians and a coalition soldier and wounding an […]


Why the fear of General Motors going under? The demand for cars would remain the same, so the lost manufacturing would have to be replaced, wouldn’t it? …while the cries of certain Armageddon would be ear splitting in the event of a GM failure, the U.S. auto sector would actually emerge much healthier thanks to […]


Nothing to Fear

12Nov08

Conservatives are scared to death by the potential that Barack’s radical past will travel with him to the White House. I can’t help thinking that that’s exactly what Republicans need. The American Civil Liberties Union launched a new campaign today calling on President-elect Barack Obama to close the Guantanamo Bay prison and end the military […]


Barack’s campaign stand against lobbyists was meaningless as policy – a deceptive stance of no practical meaning. Now, for the sake of real life, he’s watered it down to make it even less meaningful, and more symbolic. President-elect Obama, who campaigned against lobbyists’ influence, on Tuesday opened the door for them to work for him […]


Can it be that the economic policies of the Bush administration have been this successful? Under Bush, those in poverty fell dramatically, while the number of families making over $100,000/year has skyrocketed to one in four! In 1996, only 9 percent of the electorate said their family income was that high. Last week it had […]


Tight Ship

11Nov08

As tight a ship as the Obama campaign was, we have to assume that any aides to Obama who were briefed on his meeting with the President are leaking details with campaign consent and knowledge. Just hours after President Bush and President-elect Obama met in the Oval Office of the White House, details of their […]
