Obama Wins

Well, Obama has won. I do not think he deserved it, nor do I think the American people made an informed decision but I do respect that decision and hope he tries in his second term to meet the expectations he so grandly outlined and so utterly failed to even try to meet in his first.… Continue reading Obama Wins

Obama’s aura is gone – and his presidency is almost over

The Daily Caller has a great article which sums up really nicely the end-to-end embarrassment that is Barack Obama’s presidency. No one, not even the president’s most breathless, fervent supporters, could argue that Barack Obama was elected in 2008 on the strength of his resume. It wasn’t strong. Obama could boast a little about his academic achievements, but, without… Continue reading Obama’s aura is gone – and his presidency is almost over

Dog Whistling and Racism in US Politics

The Daily Caller has a good piece on the American left’s obsession with finding racism everywhere. Last night, Ann Romney sought to dispel the notion that somehow she and Mitt have had a “storybook marriage.” So she pointed out that their life together included struggles, such as her MS and breast cancer. And then she concluded: “What… Continue reading Dog Whistling and Racism in US Politics

The Obama Campaign should be running a mile from this… but won’t

This is a bit scary. Not new, but scary that they’re actually prepared to put it in print. The danger, according to Capehart, is that this narrative may remove the race card as a factor (emphasis mine): By telling potential voters “It’s OK to make a change,” the RNC is acknowledging all that I mention above.… Continue reading The Obama Campaign should be running a mile from this… but won’t

Obama finally delivers
