The Job Summit Theatricale

Oh, my goodness.President "Duality" Obama wanted his pointless but flashy "jobs summit" to be grounded in reality, not "at 30,000 feet." He wanted to hear "details" and "real solutions," but cautioned that nothing much would be changed by the "summit." He said the private sector was the only way we'd get out of this mess, but that the uninvited private sector is the problem, because small businesses are greedily looking after their own survival, rather than hiring more people that they'll … [Read more...]

Prayer is ruining me for blogging…

SourcebookI love my oratory. It's so nice, so restful, so mine. Going there to pray every day ("going there;" it's on the other side of my desk) just...shapes the whole day.But it's really playing hell with my blogging and the direction of the blog.I mean, here's my morning: I shower, get dressed, wrap the towel around my wet head (hey, it's a handy headcoving!) and then go to my oratory. I light tea candles, one before each Icon, one before the Crucifix, one before my little pewter … [Read more...]

How much does Contessa Brewer earn? UPDATED

Because she makes some really egregious mistakes over there at MSNBC (one of the White House Designated "Real" News Channels), so I want to know.I mean, during the summer, Brewer did some primo race-baiting as she (and others at White-House-Approved-and Met-With) MSNBC went out of their way to hide the race of a videotaped, gun-carrying tea-partier (ahem, he was African American) in order to suggest that the rally attendees were all a bunch of ignorant white racists who were probably … [Read more...]

Obama: "Not talking…is ridiculous"

My readers have better memories than I do. Today, I got this in the mail from an reader who asks to be identified as "A Product of Pittsburgh Steelworkers":I had written to you before the election about how then Candidate Obama would no longer talk to a television station in Florida because he didn't like some of the questions they asked Joe Biden. See your article Obama: Yes to Iran, No to WFTV from October 2008.But even I would never have imagined that he would carry this over to an … [Read more...]

Press fact-checks everyone but Obama

If you have not been paying attention, it's time to start.As you undoubtedly know, last week's episode of Saturday Night Live began with an impression that dared to mock President Obama, which -in the minds of our betters in the media- is simply not done.Tina Fey can (incorrectly) portray Sarah Palin as saying she could "see Russia from my house," and that is considered "spot-on" by CNN (their words) but a comic cannot suggest that President Obama has actually done (or left undone) things he … [Read more...]

Oh, nuts! Obama Speech Reax

I have not one, not two but three things I have to start writing for various deadlines, so I'm going to offer you a quick look-around from my email and a few sites and then tip the hat and ride off into the sunset for most of the day, pardners.Obama was going to bring "his own plan" on healthcare to the Congress yesterday, wasn't that the pre-speech meme?"This is the momentism!": Again with the Broadwayesque-Bombast. Every Obama speech is "the moment." Say, isn't that the big song from … [Read more...]

Cronkite passes

Newsman Walter Cronkite has passed away at age 92.I tend to echo Allahpundit's sentiments, here. His life was long and successful, his death came at a late age we should all be so fortunate to see; I wish peace for his family, but absolutely dread another overindulgent media-waking. Particularly when the American public faces so many grave issues, the anticipation of watching the press glurge at another morbidly sentimental feast just feels exhausting.That journalists were my first heroes … [Read more...]
