Obama Wants a Billion for Hamas

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009

Don’t miss this post from Andy McCarthy, As long as we’re passing out piles of cash, why not $900M for Hamas? It is breathtaking.

The Mendacity of Change

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

(Hat tip: Mark Hemingway) William McGurn nails the mendacity of Barack Obama.

Wednesday, February 11th, 2009

President Barack Obama held Town Hall-style Beg-a-Thon in Fort Myers Florida today yesterday. This was a surreal event.

John Kerry: Only Government Can “Invest” Your Money

Wednesday, February 11th, 2009

Listen to John Kerry make the point that cutting taxes for individuals and businesses is a bad idea because “there’s no guarantee they’re going to invest their money.” You can’t be trusted to invest or spend your money.

Wednesday, February 4th, 2009

As Mark Steyn pointed out today on the Rush Limbaugh show, Nancy Pelosi is the third in line to the Presidency and is the most powerful woman in the world. Oh, she’s also an idiot. Nancy Pelosi is a moron. Thanks, Michelle, we feel better now. God help us.
