Obama & Private Sector are Strangers

Via Instapundit (again), this is a pretty remarkable chart.Nick Schulz looks at difference between Obama's cabinet and all other presidents beginning with Teddy, with a background in the private sector. He writes:When one considers that public sector employment has ranged since the 1950s at between 15% and 19% of the population, the makeup of the current cabinet — over 90% of its prior experience was in the public sector — is remarkable.To which one can only add: how can you respect or r … [Read more...]

Tactical Surrender Afghanistan? NO!

:::POST UPDATE, 11/24/09::: Steve Schippert posts that the US Embassy in Kabul denies this story. Like Steve, I'll take them at their word. We'll see soon enough. -admin:::END UPDATE:::I am not sure what to make of this, but my first gut-instinct is, "oh, please, don't appease."Steve Schippert over at Threats Watch keeps an eye on all those places I refer to as "guy sites" (well, they never have recipes) and he writes:It comes to our attention that the MEMRI Blog highlights an article … [Read more...]

Krauthammer nails Holder

Charles Krauthammer explains in no uncertain terms why Eric Holder is basically lying (or purposely redefining what trials are in Obamaland) when he calls the KSM Showtrial in NYC a real trial.So why is Attorney General Eric Holder doing this? Ostensibly, to demonstrate to the world the superiority of our system where the rule of law and the fair trial reign.Really? What happens if KSM (and his co-defendants) "do not get convicted," asked Senate Judiciary Committee member Herb Kohl. … [Read more...]

Palin Press: Putzes in Print

Love Sarah Palin or not, one has to admit the press is so undone by her that they are both aggressive and passive-aggressive in their hate, and they betray themselves continually in all sorts of ways. They betray their snobbism; they betray their spitefulness, and most emphatically, they betray the fact that our "fourth estate" is populated mostly by perpetual adolescents.Our press, with a few exceptions, is largely made up of people who, at age 14, decided they were sophisticates who knew … [Read more...]

"Un-American" to oppose KSM trial in NYC

During the Bush administration, we heard the frequent straw-man charges, from the Democrats and the left, that they were being called "un-American" for opposing various policies. Hillary Clinton famously bellowed about it, but if the accusation of being "un-American" had been made with anything like the frequency the Dems pretended, it's nebulous in my memory.Since January of '09, the Democrats have unleashed the "un-American" charge with some real frequency. Jon Stewart, who should know … [Read more...]

Bang, Zoom! And other questions

Mark Shea, utterly disgusted with the press, and offended by the rank "truthiness" by which they and the government prefer to run, unleashes the dogs of hell:One thing you can give our media Chattering Classes: They are utterly consistent. After Major Nidal Malik Hasan opened fire on a roomful of defenseless people in Fort Hood, it was absolutely assured that we would immediately be told that this outrage had nothing to do with his Islamic faith and that it was not an act of terror. Then, as … [Read more...]

It is such a serious crisis…UPDATED

...that once again (as with the daisychain ad, and the "can I have a glass of water" ad) the left turns to exploiting children again.Let the children tell us how the earth is going to die, unless America gives her sovereignty away, laying it down on the altar of global warming climate change, and all the high priests of that sacrificial religion."We need YOU, President Obama, to go to Copenhagen!"As if Copenhagen is not already a done deal in Obama's brain.It's painful to watch. It's … [Read more...]

The 'Shut up' President Blames & Aims -UPDATED

On Drudge right now, the question Who To Blame for the massacre at Fort Hood?It was just so much easier when everything could automatically be blamed on Bush, wasn't it? Though I don't doubt we'll see Obamites and Media Minions try to blame Bush for Major Malik Hasan, in any way they possibly can.The guy to blame, of course, is the non-talking Major Malik Hasan, who should not be coddled.This White House has had a field day blaming Bush for everything they couldn't blame on the GOP, or … [Read more...]

The shadow of the jackboot…

I have only just begun to read news about The Ghastly Mrs. Pelosi's machinations, or the single-mindedness of the president who flinches at the slightest criticism but seems not to care about the CIC part of his job, and the passing of the monster bill, and also about some of the troubling rumbles coming out of Europe. While reading, I had the overwhelming image of the shadow of a jackboot, poised just above our nation.Socialism is an opportunistic infection of the body politic. It occurs … [Read more...]
