Yes He Did


What, you didn’t know that “Hope & Change” was code for continue the war policies of George W. Bush? He wasn’t trying to be mean spirited or anything – he was just…. lying.

What’s changed? Americans are waking up to what the true enemy is. That’s what’s changed. Republican Senator Bob Bennett was thrown out of office yesterday by delegates at the Utah GOP convention in what represents a stunning defeat for a once-popular three-term incumbent who fell victim to a growing conservative movement nationwide. It’s the American […]

Surge Purge


During the campaign, Barack Obama claimed he didn’t think that the surge in Iraq had worked. Now he’s called for his own surge, and already – he thinks it’s not working. Senior White House advisers are frustrated by what they say is the Pentagon’s slow pace in deploying 30,000 additional troops to Afghanistan and its […]

Sleepy Attack


Americans don’t approve of much that President Obama is doing, but most of all they disapprove of his handling of the Afganistan war – with support sinking at a startling rate. Americans are far less approving of President Obama’s handling of the situation in Afghanistan than they have been in recent months, with 35% currently […]

The Bush League


The Obama deception that most irks me is on the war in Iraq. He was able to outflank Hillary and win the Democratic nomination only because he lied. While Hillary was part of the establishment that sent us to war, Obama had always been against it, and he would unequivocally begin a systematic withdrawal of […]

Remember all those campaign commitments about Changing the Way Washington Does Business… the talk of power going back to the people after the nasty ways of the Bush Administration? The Obama administration says it will release names of most visitors to the White House, starting at the end of this year. Information on visitors in […]

Does anyone remember liberals – they used to hate war. Curiously, they seem to have switched sides. Liberals don’t care that the President who was going to end the war in Iraq within 16 months has made no moves to drawdown troops – 7 months into his administration! And, they’re going along with the idea […]

When liberals argue in support of their health care proposal, they fall back regularly on the either/or trick. There shouldn’t be a country where the wealthy can always count on access to the best medical care; and the middle class is only OK until a downward economic spike throws their life, budget, and access to […]

Barr Wars


Have you ever wondered why liberals were horrified by the military and civilian deaths caused by our wars when George Bush was President, but now that Obama is president and plans to keep the war in Iraq going for 10 or 15 years while expanding the war in Afghanistan, those voices have lost their concern? […]

As a Memorial Day weekend service to the country, I thought it would be appropriate to offer a reminder of how the entire Democratic leadership, not just the President, lied and manipulated on the war in Iraq for political gain. Dems once called this politicizing the war. Let’s rewind to March 2007, when both houses […]

Bag for Obama


Most of the liberal/radical power structure of America is in the bag for Obama – willing to let his adoption of the most detested Bush policies proceed without objection. President Obama’s proposal for a new legal system in which terrorism suspects could be held in “prolonged detention” inside the United States without trial would be […]

Barack Fraudama


For some reason, the Iraq betrayal has gone virtually unmentioned. Obama will immediately begin to remove our troops from Iraq. He will remove one to two combat brigades each month, and have all of our combat brigades out of Iraq within 16 months. Once the anti-war candidate, the President now plans on keeping the Iraq […]

I took much heat during the election cycle when I’d tell members of the swooning class that if you wanted to end the war quickly, John McCain was the guy to vote for. “What???”‘ They’d screech! “How can you say such a thing???!!!!” “A Democrat will never end the war quickly,” I’d answer. “To pull […]

Right to Hell


Bill Ayers is unhappy with the way the anti-war movement is going. More than three decades after he co-founded the radical Weather Underground – the ’60s anti-war group condemned by critics as a “domestic terrorist” organization – Bill Ayers said that today’s anti-war movement “is not as strong and not as focused as it needs […]

Wacko Wing


Priorities. Barack’s got ’em. U.S. President Barack Obama reversed a ban implemented by his predecessor, George W. Bush, on funding for international groups that perform abortions or provide information about the procedures to women abroad, the White House said Friday. Yup. In a time of crisis, more overseas abortions is at the top of the […]

Atomic Wonder


Fred Barnes checks in today with a nice tally of the Bush accomplishments. I would encourage Bush haters to read it – not because it will sway your thinking, but because it demonstrates anew the hazards of group-think. The postmortems on the presidency of George W. Bush are all wrong. The liberal line is that […]
