    Another Obama success story… When George Bush left office the War in Iraq was won. Today the flag of Al-Qaeda flies over Fallujah. It only took five years for Obama to lose all US gains in Iraq.(video at link)The Washington Post reported: A rejuvenated al-Qaeda-affiliated force asserted control over the western Iraqi city of Fallujah on Friday, raising its flag over government buildings and declaring an Islamic state in one of the most crucial areas that U.S. troops fought to pacify before withdrawing from Iraq two years ago.The capture of Fallujah came amid an explosion of violence across the western...
  • CNN Poll: Was Bush better president than Obama?

    10/08/2010 11:59:31 AM PDT · by mandaladon · 131 replies
    (CNN) - Americans are divided over whether President Barack Obama or his predecessor has performed better in the White House, according to a new national poll. And a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Friday also indicates in the battle for Congress, Republicans hold large advantages over the Democrats among independents, men and blue-collar whites. The poll also indicates that Republicans are much more enthusiastic than Democrats to vote. By 47 to 45 percent, Americans say Obama is a better president than George W. Bush. But that two point margin is down from a 23 point advantage one year ago.
  • Bush: Elites “Didn’t Think I Could Read a Book, Much Less Write One”

    10/08/2010 12:31:23 PM PDT · by fabrizio · 90 replies
    In a rare public appearance, former President George W. Bush talked about life out of the limelight and took a jab at what the "elites" might be thinking of his upcoming book. "I have written a book. This will come as a shock to some of the elites. They didn't think I could read a book, much less write one," Bush quipped. Speaking at the University of Mobile in Alabama Thursday night, Bush talked about his memoir "Decision Points," [...] The 64-year-old said the tome gives some understanding to the decisions he made on tough issues like the handling of...

    Low-income workers stand to lose the most if lawmakers fail to reach a consensus on the Bush-era tax cuts, according to a new report from the Tax Foundation. The report states that on Jan. 1 the doubling of the child tax credit, increased standard deductions and income credits and the creation of the 10 percent tax bracket — all of which primarily aimed at non-wealthy taxpayers — will vanish if gridlock persists in Washington. While wealthier taxpayers pay more in taxes and stand to lose more money if the tax cuts expire, the impact on low-income taxpayers will be far...

    Bush -- Man Of The Day Fools rush in every time something positive is written about President George W. Bush. Attacks on the writer, not on what was written, come from the dark pit of anger and ignorance where enlightenment is badly needed. By highlighting Bush’s achievements in a published editorial as he bids farewell to the nation, I “forced” Liberal extremists and their radical satellites on the edge, to stump their feet of disapproval and cry in pain! What I actually did was forced out of their system, their greatest hidden expertise on name-calling. When I wrote about Bush’s...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday scored its first public interview with a currently-serving aide to President Bush about the firings of federal prosecutors. But the session with White House political aide J. Scott Jennings at the outset was yielding little more than an appeal for sympathy and a citation of Greek mythology. With top presidential aide Karl Rove skipping the hearing on Bush's orders, the committee had to make do with a Rove underling who made clear he was appearing only to signal goodwill and to avoid a contempt of Congress citation. "I will be unable...

    Bush rips Democratic lawmakers' failures By JENNIFER LOVEN, Associated Press Writer 19 minutes ago President Bush accused Democratic lawmakers on Saturday of being unable to live up to their duties, citing Congress' inability to pass legislation to fund the federal government. "Democrats are failing in their responsibility to make tough decisions and spend the people's money wisely," Bush said in his weekly radio address. "This moment is a test." The White House has said the failure of a broad immigration overhaul was proof that Democratic-controlled Capitol Hill cannot take on major issues. "We saw this with immigration, and we're seeing...

    Terrorists will destroy the Bush library and take out most of the Park Cities at the same time. The question isn't if but when, says Sam Boyd, a Park Cities lawyer. Mr. Boyd isn't alone. A number of Park Cities residents say they fear that building the presidential library in University Park would be like painting a big, red target on their community. Security and terrorism experts have mixed sentiments. Although some say presidential libraries are unlikely targets, others say Bush's library may change that because the president is such a polarizing figure worldwide.

    Dan Quayle Leaves Bush-Bashing Concert Former Vice President Dan Quayle walked out of a John Mellencamp concert in Nevada this weekend after the performer took a verbal shot at President George W. Bush. Quayle, who served as vice president from 1989-93 with Bush’s father, President George H.W. Bush, left the concert after Mellencamp dedicated his rendition of "Walking Tall” to "everyone hurt by the policies of the current Bush administration,” according to the San Jose Mercury News. Quayle immediately left the concert. He later said through a publicist, "Well, I think Mellencamp’s performance was not very good to begin with,...

    Critics have recently argued that plans to form NAFTA Super-Highways in the United States were largely “urban legend” or just pure “hype.” These same critics note that many state departments of transportation are strapped for cash and that states north of Texas have no current plans to build super-highways, extending the Trans-Texas Corridor (TTC) north to Canada. Currently no state except Texas currently has plans to build TTC-like highways, with designs to build transportation corridors up to four football fields-wide that integrate highway toll roads, railroad transportation and utility zones for oil and natural gas pipelines, alongside towers to transmit...

    Top conservative leaders have written President Bush telling him to drop his insistence on a guest-worker program and a path to citizenship for illegal aliens and instead support the 85 percent of congressional Republicans who want to tighten law enforcement first. Signers include William J. Bennett, Robert H. Bork, Ward Connerly, David A. Keene, Phyllis Schlafly and a number of think-tank academics and pundits. The immigration debate is the first major issue on which Mr. Bush finds himself opposing a majority of Republicans in Congress and depending on Democrats to deliver a victory. In their letter, the conservatives tell Mr....

    A US film featuring actors performing real sex is a "call to arms" against President George W. Bush, the director told journalists at the Cannes film festival. "Shortbus," an explicit, largely improvised arthouse flick that includes a rendition of the American national anthem during a gay sex scene, is a direct provocation, director John Cameron Mitchell admitted. "It's a little bit of a cri de coeur to us, a little bit of a call to arms" against the prevailing conservatism, he told a media conference, adding that his country was living in "the era of Bush, which is about clamping...

    I have felt for sometime now that the main motivating force behind the "Bush lied, people died" crowd is the notion that "they did it to Clinton, so we'll do it to Bush." And while there were those on the right that went to extremes in their criticism of President Clinton, the general level of vitriol and hate that Liberals have sunk to in their seething rage against Bush specifically and Republicans in general is totally out of proportion with reality and precedent. This reminded me of this sketch from Mystery Science Theater 3000:Mike: And then the drunk guy says,...

    John Gizzi, veteran political editor of the conservative weekly Human Events, normally is an optimist. Over the years I have watched him find the one possible thread to explain the rationale for the election of a conservative Republican. John knows more about politics than any 10 political junkies combined have forgotten. If there is a way to see a possibility for a Republican victory Gizzi makes the case. And that is as it should be inasmuch as he is writing to give conservatives hope. He and his paper's message are always the same: "Shoulder on." You can imagine my shock...

    Yesterday, George W. Bush strode to a podium in Tucson, Arizona (I love Tucson!) and against a backdrop of law enforcement officers, announced his latest plan to crack down on illegal aliens. There was nothing in his speech we haven't heard before, and his new immigration policy is just as contradictory as the old one. Among the initiatives announced: We should build more jail cells to hold illegal aliens. Good idea. The speeding up of deportations, a crackdown on fraudulent identity papers, and a hardening of the border with more surveillance. So far, so good. Then the nonsense started to...

    Though widely viewed as an arch conservative in the major media, Bruce Bartlett increasingly finds himself alienated from the president of his party. Bush's policies, he warns, have been anything but conservative. Bartlett faults Bush for moving away from free trade, adopting Keynesian economic theories, increasing government regulation and doing an extremely poor job of developing and selling conservative initiatives, such as Social Security reform. As such, George W. Bush, he says, has been a disaster for conservatism. Criticism of Bush from the right has largely been confined to fringe elements outside the mainstream of the conservative movement. Bartlett...

But had more pressing concerns. It was moved to ask its network of true believers: "Why aren't we talking about a landslide in November?" Such groundless conviction "was not at all unusual in the world of MoveOn," writes Byron York in "The Vast Left Wing Conspiracy."

    Surely you're not surprised that the Bush White House is beginning to move into high campaign mode. What should surprise you is that it took them so long. Waiting until now has cost the president some popular support and has led to a spate of polls suggesting that Democratic frontrunner John Kerry would win the White House if the election were held today. That's all insanely speculative, of course. But there is evidence to suggest that Democrats have done some significant damage to the president's position. In a Gallup poll released this week, which found Bush's job approval rating to...

    ast night’s State of the Union address largely pandered, which is not to say it differed from most presidents’ addresses. Although President George W. Bush presented a few interesting policy ideas, his main purpose seemed to solidify his conservative base. We needed more substance. While Bush had to support continued efforts in Iraq, his painting the Middle East as nearly devoid of freedom is counterproductive to peace as well as demeaning. Furthermore, it smacked of hypocrisy given the president’s call to continue the Patriot Act’s provisions, which many consider the worst assault on Americans’ civil liberties in memorable history.

    Bush-disparagers won't quitBy Mark SteynDec. 24, 2003 Jerusalem Post Sunday's exciting news seems to have prompted a wide array of interpretations around the world. But, to simplify things, most of them fall between two extremes. The one end is neatly distilled by the headline on John Podhoretz's post-Saddam column in The New York Post: "Message: America Wins." The other end is encapsulated by our old friend Ayman al-Zawahri, Osama bin Laden's Number Two: "America has been defeated by our fighters despite all its military might," he said in an audio tape broadcast on al-Jazeera last weekend. "With God's help...

    In the midst of a film industry crackdown on digital movie piracy, filmmaker Robert Greenwald is urging rampant, unauthorized copying of his documentary criticizing the Bush administration's reasons for invading Iraq (news - web sites). The 56-minute film, "Uncovered: The Whole Truth about the Iraq War," concludes that President Bush (news - web sites) and his team distorted intelligence data and misled the American public ahead of the March invasion that toppled the regime of Saddam Hussein (news - web sites). Greenwald has bypassed movie theaters and television, and instead has organized "parlor screenings" in thousands of homes across the...

    Many opposed war Re: the Dec. 16 letter "Time for Democrats to eat humble pie," about the capture of Saddam Hussein. Who were the people against the war in Iraq? Was it just Democrats, or was it really Democrats, Republicans, independents, whites, blacks, Asians, Latinos and on and on and on? Why do people feel they must paint all the people in a group with the same brush? Isn't that how we got in this situation in the first place? Granted, we saved the Iraqis from this tyrant. But that was not one of the main reasons we were given...

    That weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth from Bush haters spring from the president's Thanksgiving Day visit to Iraq. Mr. Bush went to boost the morale of the troops and fling raspberries at the UN and the world's peaceniks. Mr. Bush's message was clear, "We ain't leavin." Steam erupts from the ears of the Bush haters who, these days, resemble Wile E. Coyote, flummoxed by this elusive roadrunner from Texas. Turnabout is fair play. Here on the right, we groaned daily about the Clintons during their agonizing reign. But, true to conservative principles, we found a way to make a...

    On November 21 Hits Daily Double reports that top sellers would be Britney, Blink-182, and the Beatles...but with the early release of the Dixie Chicks Top of the World the chart picture could change dramatically... On November 26 Hits Daily Double has all the numbers in..and Britney, Blink-182, and Beatles sell 300k to 600k in sales. Dixie Chicks who in the past never had trouble topping the charts now come in at may 100k for their 1st weak of sales---so much for hitsdailydouble's prediction that the Chicks new release will change the chart picture.

    Conservative pundits have panned to Democratic party’s Bush bashing and gutter slime politics as signs of a political movement on it’s last desparate gasp as they lack any “vision” for the future. On the contrary. There is plenty of vision in their rhetoric. Granted there are no new ideas in the vision but it is there just the same. Higher taxes, socialized medicine, UN sovereignty over US sovereignty, blah, blah, blah. This is the same elitist stuff they are spouting for years. This their way to “establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare,...
