Headline questions

Saddest headline in my email today: George W. Bush was the last American President.I'm in sort of a cranky mood, especially after getting this thing in my email a dozen times. Not the HA post, the vid. If you can watch it you've got a stronger stomach than I do. And if you want info on the UI behind it, Malkin has it. Ugh, and ugh.So, I'll start with this video, instead. Note the line: "These are bad Americans, and they're putting our country at risk."Okay, I have questions.Oil … [Read more...]

Obama lying about Carbon Emissions?

Obama is making "America has never done more to curb Carbon emissions..." noises. Based on nothing at all, Obama says:"I am proud to say that the United States has done more to promote clean energy and reduce carbon pollution in the last eight months than at any other time in our history."I'm getting tired of this empty suit and his empty words.Meanwhile, here is reality - in those bad old days of 2006:U.S. carbon dioxide emissions dropped slightly last year even as the economy grew, … [Read more...]

The Pinnacle: slim, sharp & lonely

Catching up on all the stories since I have been away and I must have missed this one when it broke - the header: Democrat: Republicans hate ObamaCare because they’re racists. Also, Castro’s a genius.The Democrat is Rep. Diane Watson (D-California). Watson is both African-American and female, so she is speaking from the fake ledge of "absolute moral authority" which was once the province of Cindy Sheehan until she stopped being a useful bat for to beat around the Bush, with. From Watson's led … [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...]

Presidential Workouts: Bush creepy; Obama a godling

“If you don’t read the newspaper, you are uninformed. If you do read the newspaper, you are misinformed.” -- Mark TwainIf the press loves you, you can do no wrong. If they hate you, you can do no right. In either case, what they are presenting is distorted and therefore unfair to their subjects or their readers.I touched yesterday on the media double-standard regarding presidential work-outs, but Michelle Malkin does a better job of fleshing it out:Ah, the perks of media affec … [Read more...]

Sally Quinn: A tribute too far? – UPDATE

Of all the tribute written by journalists about their friend, Tim Russert, a few have been standouts; Jon Meacham's piece in Newsweek was onesuch.In her column, "On Faith" Sally Quinn writes another excellent, heartfelt tribute about the fullness of the man, Tim Russert, and how his faith, joyfully confessed throughout his being, completed that fullness. Russert was, by all accounts, a man who was not defined by his faith; rather he - by the way he lived his life - helped define the faith … [Read more...]

Chesterton & Lewis warn against tyranny

G. K. Chesterton's helpful assessment of fundamental liberty. By his measure, our liberty is indeed threatened."The free man owns himself. He can damage himself with either eating or drinking; he can ruin himself with gambling. If he does he is certainly a damn fool, and he might possibly be a damned soul; but if he may not, he is not a free man any more than a dog." - Broadcast talk 6-11-35Emphasis mine. Jay at STACLU has a great quote on a similar theme:“Of all tyrannies, a t … [Read more...]

Incuriouser & Incuriouser – Bush or the Press?

Jay Ambrose has a great piece up that touches on something I've always maintained, that the word "incurious" belongs rightly to the press, not the president.The incurious press never did want to know about John Kerry's military records...they never did actually want to hear what the Swiftboat Vets had to say...hell, they weren't even curious enough about Plamegate to ask Joe Wilson a question beyond "so, how is the Bush Neocon Cabal out to get you?" They never were curious enough to ask … [Read more...]

Can we say “Ellis Islands, West?”

Big Lizard has a terrific post in which he wonders why none of the hardliner, "ship 'em all back - illegal is illegal" bloggers are so disinterested in the nightmarish hoops people must jump through in order to come here legally, and how necessary is real immigration reform is in this country. He writes eloquently, and you must read his whole post. Here is an excerpt:SachiMy wife was a legal immigrant; she jumped through all the hoops, did everything by the book. She got a green card; … [Read more...]

What Condi’s done in 6 months…

...is really pretty impressive.While other "brilliant" female media darlings get by on empty rhetoric and small, safe, carefully-polled ideas, Dr. Rice simply puts her nose to the grindstone and works, works, works...and gets quite a lot done, earning enormous respect from those who deal with her...and with almost no positive coverage.This is a pretty fair - even complimentary piece on Rice. A pleasure to read from the WaPo.And Ed Morrissey had a nice analysis. … [Read more...]
