This has been sitting in my “drafts” for some time (along with a bunch of other stuff, some of which is the result of tip-offs). Since I first saw it, Obama has completely changed his tune, calling scandals “phony” that he was previously calling “inexcusable”.
I saw this video at Patterico just now. His point is that the president is using marines to hold his umbrella instead of doing it himself. (Update: Yep) Well, I’m quite certain I’ve seen Bush have that (in spite of these images) so I think that’s a bit of a beat up. But I was… Continue reading Obama Really Poor at Speaking
I covered a few of Obama’s appalling choices for running various things in my big post just before to the presidential election. But I missed this one. Dan Savage. Dan Savage’s anti-bully program was chosen by Obama to be part of his anti-bully project. Just one problem Dan Savage is a pretty nasty bully himself. You can… Continue reading Obama’s Anti-Bullying Guy
The Republican party in the US just suffered quite a defeat. But they do have a position as majority in the house from which they can launch something. I was reading via Instapundit today (or maybe yesterday) that in spite of recent events, in spite of Chicago being dominated by Democrats, in spite of the failures of Stimulus projects, in spite… Continue reading An idea to get Conservatism back on track
This is worse than bad, it’s obscene. Romney has gained 3 points since the last time CNN ran its poll, in late September, when Obama led 50%-47%. That is good news for the Republican ticket, especially since the poll was conducted after Hurricane Sandy. Yet there is something odd–and even ridiculous–in the poll’s sample: of… Continue reading Look! If we tilt the poll to this extreme, it comes to a Draw!
(Continued from Part 1) 8. He has some really, really bad friends Like this one. Or his beloved pastor. Or how about Bill Ayers, unrepentant terrorist. Barack Obama would have you believe that, after 20 years of friendship, he had no idea the Rev. Jeremiah Wright was a bomb-throwing racial demagogue. And that after 15 years of what he described… Continue reading Why America won’t (or at least shouldn’t) vote Obama another term (Part 2)
This is quite incredible. It’s an editorial from the Las Vegas Review-Journal. This is apparently the “largest daily circulation paper in Nevada. Now, if you read up on Nevada you learn (as I did only a couple of days ago) that the state is almost entirely made up of the one city – Las Vegas.… Continue reading Nevada’s biggest newspaper lashes Obama
I’ve run across a number of New Zealanders who are incredulous that Obama is not romping home. To be fair, the ignorance this displays is understandable as our media simply doesn’t give us the information that Americans have access to. So I thought I’d compile together just a few of the reasons I read in conservative (and… Continue reading Why America won’t (or at least shouldn’t) vote Obama another term
The Benghazi scandal just gets worse and worse. Now, we’re being told that armed forces were ordered not to help. Extraordinary. At this rate, Obama won’t want to win another term because if he does, he’s going to get the same treatment that Nixon got. You’re talking wall to wall misery, investigations at every turn, a demoralised white… Continue reading Obama’s Watergate
This is really funny. Interesting how every Obama supporter they interviewed was so happy with Paul Ryan being his VP pick, and so few have a problem with Romney even though he is black. (And as a non-partisan aside, yes I have no doubt this also works the other way!)
