  • Obama Blames The GOP for The Mess He Has Created

    11/29/2013 1:52:30 PM PST · by Kaslin · 26 replies ^ | Donald Lambro
    Soon after President Obama told the White House press corps he was solely responsible for the botched Obamacare rollout, he decided to shift part of the blame on Republicans. A mea culpa can be hard to deliver in public when you are the kind of politician who thinks he never mistakes and rarely if ever apologizes for anything that went wrong. But Obama's apologies have a brief shelf life, and a few days later they had reached their expiration date. So at a gathering of business executives on Tuesday, Nov. 19, the president concluded that he had done enough...
  • Desperation: Democrats Blame Obamacare Woes on GOP

    10/24/2013 12:04:56 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 37 replies ^ | October 24, 2013 | Guy Benson
    The Obamacare recriminations are underway. Stuck with an unpopular law whose launch has been an unmitigated disaster, the Democratic Party has morphed from a ruthless, unified political machine to a frantic, zig-zagging tornado of blame. The White House would like you to know that the Department of Health and Human Services was chiefly responsible for the implementation process. HHS counters that the White House ultimately runs the show, and that Sec. Kathleen Sebelius' hands were effectively tied by her relative lack of power. Some Democrats are blaming the private sector contractors who were brought in to help craft (conveniently...
  • Students on Liberal Colorado Campus Blame Obama for the Shutdown (Could there be hope?)

    Weird things happen in Boulder Colorado — it has a gorilla run to support apes in Uganda, locals dash around naked wearing pumpkin heads Halloween night (sorry, not offering up a link) and let’s just say 4/20 is the locals’ favorite date. Despite the city’s liberal background, students at the University of Colorado Boulder on Tuesday blamed President Obama and Democrats more than the GOP for the partial government shutdown. “Everybody is blaming Obama and the Democrats, is this normal?” Caleb Bonham of Campus Reform asked after several undergraduates quickly identified the culprit. “Um, no I don’t think so but...
  • Miracle: Senate Democrats' Budget to Drop Next Week?

    The last time Democrats in the United States Senate adhered to the law and put forward an annual budget was back in calendar year 2009, just after the last presidential election.  Now that another major national electoral contest is in the rearview mirror, it appears that Harry Reid's motley crew is preparing to make good on their magnanimous pledge to actually do their jobs this year.  Via a senior Republican source at the Senate Budget Committee:   We expect to mark up a Senate Democrat budget next week. We don’t have a date, we don’t know details such as whether...
  • It's Time To Turn the Tables on this Presidential Bully

    12/07/2012 8:42:04 AM PST · by Kaslin · 23 replies ^ | December 7, 2012 | David Limbaugh
    Something is very wrong in the world when the most dogmatic and inflexible president in recent memory can make unreasonable demands of his GOP budget opponents and yet be confident they'll be blamed for the impasse. It is past time Barack Obama be held accountable for his intentionally irresponsible fiscal policies that are guaranteed to take us into national bankruptcy. It is outrageous enough that he is steering us into insolvency, but it is unbearable that he's fraudulently blaming the Republican Party for it to boot. This is not a close call, and reasonable people, if they understood the facts,...
  • Four More Years -- of This

    In what The Washington Post called "a bold act of political defiance," President Obama Wednesday announced the recess appointment of Richard Cordray to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Cordray's nomination had been blocked by a Senate filibuster. There was no way he was going to win approval in 2012. Enraged Republicans denounced the appointment as an affront and a usurpation of power, for the Senate had not formally gone into recess. The White House airily dismissed the Republican rage, saying no Senate business is being conducted during the Christmas-New Year break, and to argue that the Senate is still...

    Barack Obama gets a surprise visit in the night from ex-Presidents Bush Sr., Bush Jr., Clinton, Ford, Reagan and Carter to get a few pointers about the Consumer Financial Protection Agency and why it's so important.
