  • Obama and the Trouble With Voting 'Present' (Karl Rove)

    Wall Street Journal ^ | June 10, 2010 | Karl Rove
    Even now, Mr. Obama looks like a spectator, albeit an angry one, barking at White House aides to "plug the damn hole" (now that's a good idea no one has thought of) and telling NBC's Matt Lauer he's in search of an "ass to kick." But the main political behind that's being kicked is Mr. Obama's. The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll says Americans give the federal government a 69% negative rating for its handling of the spill, compared to a 62% negative rating for Washington's handling of Katrina in August 2005. This pattern of being merely present has been...
  • Why Impeaching Obama is a Bad Idea

    05/30/2010 8:07:03 AM PDT · by ConservativeHideout · 126 replies · 1,461+ views
    Since we became aware the Joe Sestak was offered a position by the administration in exchange for dropping out of the race against Arlen Specter, there have been calls for impeachment. Small at first, but growing in strength in the past week, these calls can threaten to derail the progress that we have been making. In fact, I would submit that impeaching Obama is a terrible idea. (Mind you, this is assuming that we win enough seats in November to even try.) Impeachment puts Obama on the defense, and that might play to his strengths. I like to keep in...

    The Chicago Daily Observer ^ | May 21, 2010 | Daniel J. Kelley
    “Obama learned his lesson well.” -- quote attributed to L. David Alinsky, son of Saul Alinsky. From time to time, media reports have referred to a unique brand of systemic corruption and political hardball tactics as being “the Chicago Way. “ The term is taken from the motion picture adaptation of “The Untouchables.” The screenplay was written by David Mamet. Although the exploits of Eliot Ness were exaggerated in the film, much like the original television series which often dispensed fiction for fact, the drama nonetheless struck a responsive chord. On a political level, this brand of thuggish behavior has...

    Among the most wasteful of the spending in- creases hidden in President Obama's 2011 budget proposal is his plan to create an army of government-funded community organizers at the shocking price of $1.4 billion. While the economy reels and many taxpayers are looking for ways to trim their personal spending, the president is demanding a whopping 59 percent boost for the Corporation for National and Community Service and its best-known program, AmeriCorps. It's time to pull the plug on both. The spirit of volunteerism has never been in short supply in America, and there is no need for a federal...

And if you didn't see it, and if you want to know what sitting through a speech by Castro or Chavez is like find a way to watch a little bit of it and you'll get a grand idea. It was disjointed. I thought it was pathetic. It's striking to me, and it's utterly predictable, you listen to the pro-Obama people in the media and they talk about, "Oh, it was great, it was the most wonderful speech." It was...

    Populist or professor? Contrite or uncompromising? President Obama will have a chance Wednesday to reintroduce himself to the nation when he delivers his first official State of the Union address before a joint session of Congress. The prime-time speech, which will be aired on all major TV networks and cable stations, could hardly come at a more critical time for a president grappling with double-digit unemployment, sinking poll numbers and the possible collapse of his top domestic policy priority, an overhaul of the nation's health-care system. "As often as the president has spoken over the past year, critics on the...

    President Obama begins his second year in the White House with such anemic approval ratings, you'd think he was another Ronald Reagan: Among recent presidents, only the Gipper had fallen so low in the esteem of voters at this stage of his presidency. In the end, things worked out rather well for Reagan -- a landslide reelection, success in changing the course of the nation and the world, canonization by the Republican Party. In this context, the serenity of Obama's political advisers is understandable. It has been a tough year, and the president has had to make a host of...

    Heather Mac DonaldChicago’s Real Crime Story Why decades of community organizing haven’t stemmed the city’s youth violence Winter 2010 Barack Obama has exploited his youthful stint as a Chicago community organizer at every stage of his political career. As someone who had worked for grassroots “change,” he said, he was a different kind of politician, one who could translate people’s hopes into reality. The media lapped up this conceit, presenting Obama’s organizing experience as a meaningful qualification for the Oval Office. This past September, a cell-phone video of Chicago students beating a fellow teen to death coursed over the...

    America continues to drink the poison Kool Aid from this administration regarding health care, contrived environmental disasters and financial waste. This must be the season of poison drinks because on Nov 18th, 1978 909 men, women and children committed suicide under the care of pervert, community activist and political manipulator Jim Jones. We all may vaguely remember him as just a wacko cult leader but he was way more! Just how did he gain that much influence over so many people? It was not about sex or religion. It was about POWER Jim Jones had one big goal to create...

Mike Roselle even titled one chapter of his new book "Why I Quit Spiking Trees." In it, the co-founder of Earth First!, the Rainforest Action Network and the Ruckus Society described how the practice brought old-growth timber cutting to national awareness, but became a public relations disaster for the protesters. "I think the Wobblies can take credit for it if they want, but it's been around as long as logging," Roselle said, referring to the Industrial Workers...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is enlisting Hollywood celebrities including actress Rosario Dawson and musician Will.I.Am to draw attention to his health care overhaul agenda. The performers will act as celebrity judges for a TV commercial contest set up by Organizing for America, the Obama political organization that's part of the Democratic National Committee. Organizing for America last month invited supporters to create and submit 30-second ads in support of remaking health care. The winning one will be aired nationally. In addition to Dawson and Will.I.Am, the panel of judges being announced by Organizing for America Wednesday consists of...
