    Elect a Chicago community organizer (twice) as your president and you should not be surprised to find that all he is capable of is spewing propaganda and dividing us by personalizing attacks on those who oppose his grandiose, wildly impractical efforts at reshaping our lives to suit his sophomoric view of the good life. As the obvious failure of ObamaCare has become evident to all but his most blinkered cultists, Obama fell back this week on upping the propagandizing and deflecting attention from his failures with even more lies. His organizing arm OFA (Organizing for America) urged supporters to use...

    Negotiating with Republicans has never been in Obama's playbook. Three days after his inauguration in 2009, President Barack Obama silenced Republican lawmakers who voiced concerned about the enormity of spending in his stimulus bill by uttering two brash words, "I won." That was his governing philosophy, as he rammed through the American Reinvestment and Recovery. But in the fall of 2010, Republicans swept into control of the House of Representatives, and since then, Obama's agenda has been stalled. With little prospect of gaining control of the House in 2014, Obama is resorting to discrediting the Constitution's limits on presidential power...

    Leadership: From the closing of national cemeteries to the blocking of public roads to deny access to scenic overlooks of Mount Rushmore, the list of federal shutdowns shows a president whose pettiness knows no bounds. We have witnessed the shameful spectacle of the administration placing barricades — "Barackades" and "Barrycades," as they've come to be called — around the World War II Memorial to prevent those who stormed the beaches of Normandy and Ronald Reagan's honored "boys of Pointe du Hoc" from seeing the monument built with public funds to honor their service and sacrifice. As the Associated Press reports,...

    Obama did nothing to fix debt crisis or reform entitlementsHarry S. Truman famously placed a wood sign on the Oval Office desk that read, “The buck stops here.” The tradition of the president taking full responsibility for what happens on his watch apparently hasn’t been adopted by Barack Obama. President Obama prefers to pass the buck. CBS correspondent Steve Kroft asked Mr. Obama on Sunday about the national debt going up 60 percent during his first term. The president blamed the previous administration’s policies for “90 percent of it.” By his account, four straight years of trillion-dollar budget deficits were...

    Calling America "lazy" last weekend was only the latest and broadest insult from President Obama. America has become accustomed to Obama's lashing out at entire groups of people. What has been all too little appreciated is his seeming delight in bullying, if not demeaning, individuals face-to-face. He is protected from angry responses not just by the Secret Service, but by the reverence his victims have for the office he holds. This is a level of respect for the institution of the presidency that Obama does not share or hold dear. For him, the bully pulpit has taken an entirely different...

    S&P tells it like it is: the U.S. is out of moneyThe Obama administration has made history by presiding over the first-ever downgrade in the U.S. credit rating. President Obama has outdone all his predecessors in wrecking America’s good name. His answer to this problem: Spend even more. Raising the debt ceiling was sold as a way of guaranteeing the U.S. credit rating. It had the opposite effect, which makes sense to anyone who understands credit. Take a family with a median household income around $50,000. If they spend $85,000 a year and have debt at $300,000 and growing, it’d...

      Collectively, Washington has the attention span of a fruit fly. That's why all we have heard about lately are the consequences of failing to raise the federal debt limit — action that has prompted no fewer than two dozen dueling news conferences, presidential addresses and Republican "responses" in the past 10 days. Our political leaders and the mainstream media are totally focused on how this theoretical "potential catastrophe" can be ameliorated, while existential threats to our national security and very way of life are being ignored in Washington.Meanwhile, in the real world, after nearly a decade at war,...

          The only thing surprising about Barack Obama's latest blow against Israel is that there are people who are surprised. As for a Palestinian homeland, that was never a big issue when the Arabs controlled that land, up to 1967. Obama's declaration that Israel must give up the land it acquired, after neighboring countries threatened its survival in 1967, is completely consistent with both his ideology of many years and his previous actions as President of the United States.Whether as a radical student, a community organizer or a far left politician, Barack Obama's ideology has been based on a...

    After less than two months in office, President Obama made a decision that many at the time saw as un-presidential. In the midst of what even he was calling the most serious economic crisis since the Great Depression, Obama became the first sitting U.S. President to go on a late night comedy show. Bizarre as it might have been, ardent Obama defenders like Robert Bianco at USA Today gave him a pass, writing, "Whatever one thinks of his policies, no one can accuse Obama of lacking gravity or dignity. He doesn't need any particular setting to bestow those qualities...

    (CNSNews.com) – Congress has been adequately consulted before the military assault against Libya, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Thursday. Congress did not formally authorize military action, but Carney laid out a number of instances that President Barack Obama and various administration officials informed members of Congress. Members of Congress from both parties have raised objections to the president ordering U.S. airstrikes in Libya to enforce a no-fly zone against the government of dictator Moammar Gadhaffi. Obama himself, as a presidential candidate, said in 2007 that, “The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize...

    WASHINGTON — Nobel laureate Barack Obama, fresh from his Latin American spring break, is in serious trouble. Globalists and Utopians who once lauded his constant contrition now want POTUS to return his Peace Prize. Here in Washington, libertarians, progressives and conservatives are outraged that U.S. military forces were committed to combat in Libya without a congressional resolution. The commander in chief's approval ratings are dropping faster than a JDAM. And no matter what happens to Moammar Gadhafi, the turmoil in the Middle East is likely to get a whole lot worse before it gets better. For all of this,...

    If the world is in crisis, you wouldn’t know it by watching President Obama’s spring break. Between golf, basketball and the president’s upcoming trip to Rio de Janeiro, the White House is projecting a disinterested aura of business as usual. For this administration, “tuned-out” is the new normal. The Mideast crisis is continuing, and Hillary Rodham Clinton has been the one taking the 3 a.m. phone calls. The secretary of state has been dealing with political reform in Egypt, a military crackdown in Bahrain and the continuing civil war in Libya. However, she is hampered by a chief executive who...

    WASHINGTON — Fuel and food prices are up. So is unemployment. Officials in the Obama administration and their allies on Capitol Hill are stunned. They shouldn't be. It's O-Team policy — or lack of it — that got us here. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits for the first time jumped this week to 397,000 — meaning there are more people looking for work than the private sector has jobs available. You don't have to be a government economist to see the direct connection between rising costs for essentials — such...

    PENSACOLA, Fla. – Laying the groundwork for an evening speech to the nation, President Barack Obama walked a pristine stretch of sand on Florida's shoreline Tuesday and pledged to "fight back with everything we've got" against the spreading oil lurking offshore. In a speech at Pensacola's Naval Air Station, Obama took note of the painful contrasts around him: "The sand is white. The water's blue," he said. And yet, he added, "those plumes of oil are off the coast."

    WASHINGTON — Members of Congress lined up near a fire pit on the South Lawn on Tuesday to eat Northwest-style salmon while others chomped down on Midwest-style hot dogs. It was all part of the White House's annual congressional picnic, and this year the event featured foods from regions across the country for a "Tastes of the States" theme. President Barack Obama, standing next to first lady Michelle Obama, told lawmakers he wanted to thank them for their "incredible devotion to the country, regardless of party." As part of the event, every member of Congress is invited, along with their...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Former U.S. President Bill Clinton is "The Most Influential Man in the World," according to Esquire magazine. The magazine has designated him as "the most powerful agent of change in the world" despite his lack of electoral standing and the fact he was laid low by a heart attack ahead of last year's presidential election. The magazine highlights Clinton's accomplishments in its December issue, which goes on newsstands on Thursday, profiling the world's "Best and Brightest" men and women. Since leaving office, Clinton has been so active that his post-presidency amounts to "a third term" for...

    NEW YORK - Bill Clinton said he was "a little scared, but not much" of undergoing heart bypass surgery, but was looking forward to a swift recovery and resuming normal activities such as jogging. The former president was hospitalized Friday with chest pains and shortness of breath. The upcoming operation could limit his role in campaigning for fellow Democrat John Kerry, who is making a run for the White House. "Let me just say this, Republicans aren't the only people who want four more years here," Clinton said in a live interview Friday evening on CNN's "Larry King Live." An...

    Does anyone remember a book circulated during the 1992 Presidential election that really tore apart Clinton? It might have been after the actual election, I'm not sure. What I remember of it was that it was a very thin paperback sent out free. I think the author was Floyd Abrams and the title was "Boy President," but I could be wrong on both counts. What I most remember about it is the cover photo of Clinton. He has the most phenomenal smirk on his face. What I am looking for is a scan of that cover, particularly that horrid smirk....
