Crashing Down


There’s talk at the White House of need for a new stimulus. Larry Summers, President Barack Obama’s top economic adviser, has asked Congress to “grit its teeth” and approve a fresh fiscal boost of $200bn to keep growth on track. “We are nearly 8m jobs short of normal employment. For millions of Americans the economic […]

Clear Cut


If an environmentalist falls in the woods, does anyone hear?

Bonnie & Clyde


Bonnie & Clyde are back – no guns required. In their new form, the robbers use pen and ink, and they do their deeds in the dark of night. The amount of taxpayer money being funneled to a Dorchester shrine to the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy has ballooned to $38 million and could rise […]

Is Harry Reid trying to lose? He couldn’t have created a better ad for his opponent than this! “Today is a big day in America. Only 36,000 people lost their jobs today, which is really good,” Reid said on the Senate floor Friday morning. Reid’s comments were in reference to Friday’s jobs report that the […]

Cool Water


It’s over. So now it can begin. Over the course of a couple of weeks last month, Scott Brown went from being a state senator looking to expand his statewide profile with a hopeless U.S. Senate run into the most prominent U.S. politician after the president. “I can’t promise I will be right in every […]

The Scott-op


When will the Dems pass health reform? When will they jam the Senate bill through the House? You’ll be surprised, and pleased, by Nancy Pelosi’s answer. “We’re in no rush,” Pelosi said. Now there’s a shift. I was talking to a liberal friend on Sunday night – just two days before the Massachusetts Miracle. He […]

With Us


The nation is with us in rooting for a Scott Brown victory and an end to the deliberate slide into socialism. Like fans cheering for their favorite football teams, voters nationwide are paying attention to the special U.S. Senate race in Massachusetts. Almost half of them are rooting for Republican candidate Scott Brown over his […]

John Kerry was asked on Channel 5 yesterday about how quickly the swearing in of the newly elected senator should happen. For some reason, he wasn’t paying the usual lip service to the will of the people. Senator John Kerry: Well, I don’t think that’s possible. I mean even under normal circumstances, when I was […]

Taking the Bus


Don’t accuse Senator John Kerry of being like those other Climate Change Hypocrites! Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) will travel to the United Nations global warming conference in Copenhagen, Denmark on a commercial airliner, a senior Kerry aide told It will be a moment of supreme symbolism as Kerry jumps out of the private jet and […]

Friday morning I was speculating on the air that Barack Obama and Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick aren’t really all that tight despite media assumptions of a “close” friendship. Plagued by his own plummeting polls and playing to empty seats at a high-roller Hub fund-raiser, President Obama acknowledged yesterday that his close friend and political alter […]

Kennedy Klan


Is the government of Massachusetts “of the people, by the people, for the people,” or is it “of the Kennedys, by the Kennedys, for the Kennedys?” For a superior court judge in Massachusetts, it is “for the Kennedys,” as he refused to grant a restraining order blocking the swearing in of Paul Kirk as interim […]

So John Kerry


Why isn’t the President attending to urgent liberal issues like eliminating one of the most hateful elements of U.S. society –  the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy? Liberals are asking, but the Obama Administration won’t tell. Nobody cared if Dan Choi was a homosexual while he was leading Fort Drum soldiers on patrol in Iraq. […]

I Had a Dream


We in Massachusetts had assumed that there would be a silver lining to the November elections. Sure, we thought, the country may be getting a young president of unprecedented inexperience during very difficult times, and that’s certainly a bad thing. But the election of Barack Obama would lead, we believed, to John Kerry being offered […]
