Obama meets with Biden, Clinton _ UPDATED

Apparently today President Obama met with his gaffe-stricken veep and his Secretary of State. A few wags have suggested recently that a put-upon Obama may "switch" these two -- putting Biden at State (John Kerry will be crushed, and our diplomatic relations may never be the same, anywhere) and Hillary Clinton on his ticket.Mrs. Clinton would certainly be a better debater against Paul Ryan than Biden.Lots of opinion out there. Some think Hillary won't do it -- that she and Bill Clinton … [Read more...]

Whore is as Whore Does; NOW is over

A week ago, Ed Morrissey looked at NOW's endorsement of California gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown--whose campaign assistant had just been caught referring to his (female) rival as "a whore"--and asked "Seriously, what does it take for a Democrat to lose the endorsement of the National Organization from Women?"The answer, of course, is "turn pro-life."Anything short of that, and it really doesn't matter what misogynist, insulting or dehumanizing thing a Democrat does, NOW will … [Read more...]

Scrubbing the News for Obama

Remember yesterday, I wrote:Okay, show of hands, how many of you were surprised that this story saw the light of day: Dobson students question Obama’s planYes, it was surprising to see the press report on students making negative remarks on Obama, wasn't it?So today per Instapundit:AIRBRUSHING IN THE EAST VALLEY TRIBUNE? So I linked to a story on high school students skeptical about Obama’s stimulus speech. Now the story has the same headline, but the quotes are missing, replaced by a bu … [Read more...]

Obama & Dems: Put your dreams away…UPDATED

My husband works for a company that is trying to sell their product to places like Lowe's and Home Depot.I hear Obama say "BUILDING SPRAWL STOPS NOW!" and I think, there go 800,000 jobs. And along with those jobs, probably another 100,000 jobs in retail and business technologies.And there goes an awful lot of tax revenue. How we are supposed to pay for this beast of a bill without taxable earnings is something the great "I Won" - who can't say a positive word about industry, … [Read more...]

Repost: Thoughts on the American Presidency

From November 2008 - reposted by request.I was helping someone find a quote about American Presidents, and in the process of searching, we found these from my own site. Thought as we ponder our latest election and the question of what the presidency means and where it might lead, I'd toss 'em out to you.But sticking to Clinton, and to the value of the American Presidency - it is worth noting. We are too enthralled with our partisanships and our "hates", sometimes, and we overlook the … [Read more...]

I miss Bill Clinton! – UPDATED

Yes, I do. I miss Bill Clinton.You know how bad this stimulus forever socialist bill and Obama/Pelosi's overall grandiose-ness is? This bad:It's making me miss Bill.I miss Bill, and I miss George W. Bush. I even miss George H.W. Bush, who I came to appreciate too late.By that what I mean is, I miss old-fashioned American presidents; flawed men who had no allusions that they were perfect. Men who (in Clinton's case) needed to be loved too much and (in Bush's case) didn't need it … [Read more...]

From Email: Fairness, Life, Secrecy, Caroline

Not too much hate-mail, lately, which is a nice change. Someone from the left actually wrote that she appreciated how "fair" I was to Michelle Obama on her clothes.Well, thank you, I try to be fair. No one can be, all the time, but I would hope that that correspondent has been at least as "fair" to Bush once in a while in the past few years. What am I saying, I'm sure she has been! :-)THANKING YOU for your prayers: This military family writes to tell me that Beloved is finally home, and … [Read more...]

Wednesday Linkfest!

Personally a difficult day over here for some family members who are crucible-stepping. If you could keep J and P in your prayers, I would really appreciate it.Meanwhile, there's plenty to read!Big Doings: for the launch of Big Hollywood. I like the Steyn quote highlighted by Ed Driscoll he's right!. And Driscoll is correct that editor John Nolte will keep the site provocative, smart and funny. I like the site a lot - it's quickly going to become yet another of my daily "must reads" and a … [Read more...]
