  • Jack Wheeler: The Speech I'd Give If I Were Running For President

    [Note: No, I have no intention whatever of running for president. This is the address that Palin or Perry or Bachman or some major candidate needs to give if we want an end to our current political insanity.] I am running for president because freedom in America is being systematically destroyed by Demagogues in Washington, and I am determined to restore it. That capital "D" is there because it is the more appropriate label for Democrats. The Democrat Party should be referred to as the Demagogue Party, and that is what I shall do until the day comes when they...
  • New backup plan would let Obama raise debt ceiling without congressional OK

    A plan by the Senate's two top leaders to allow President Obama to raise the debt limit without congressional approval is emerging as the most likely strategy to avoid a looming federal default. The plan being drafted by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada would lock in roughly $1.5 trillion in deficit reduction over the next ten years — a figure considerably smaller than Republican leaders or President Obama had been seeking. Administration officials have said they still would prefer a more sweeping deal on the deficit, but they signaled the idea...

    He walked out of a meeting with Republican congressional leaders on deficit reduction, telling them "enough was enough". It was the fourth such meeting in as many days to end fruitlessly, and the president's mounting frustration had been clear. In a press conference on Monday he ruled out a temporary agreement on raising the US debt limit, insisting "we might as well do it now – pull off the Band-Aid, eat our peas". "They're in one week and they're out one week," he said, making his irritation plain. "You need to be here. I've been here. I've been doing Afghanistan...

    These three Dem clowns are tag-teaming each other now live. They are promising that unless Obama gets his new taxes by 2 August, the country will be destroyed: no Boy Scouts, no IRS, no FBI, no Border Patrol, no school lunches for schools (indeed, all schools may be forced to close), no Social Security checks, no military retiree checks, etc. I am not making this up. In between these screeds, AARP is running terror ads telling seniors they will all die in the street without Social Security. I have never seen such a display of mendacity and outright fraud by...

    Strangling Oil By INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY Thursday, May 24, 2007 Energy: As Americans get ever-angrier about soaring gasoline prices, Congress wants to do something, anything. So this week, the House passed a bill seeking to end "price-gouging." Fair enough — now, what is that? In the Senate, New York's Charles Schumer wants to break up big oil companies on the notion that more small companies would foster competition and cut prices. Others, including New York's other senator, Hillary Clinton, want to tax oil companies' "windfall" profits. Such measures, and others like them, demonstrate a woeful ignorance of basic economics. But...

    Edwards: Move Past 'War on Terror' May 23 11:36 AM US/Eastern By BETH FOUHY Associated Press Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Democrat John Edwards Wednesday repudiated the notion that there is a "global war on terror," calling it an ideological doctrine advanced by the Bush administration that has strained American military resources and emboldened terrorists. In a defense policy speech he planned to deliver at the Council on Foreign Relations, Edwards called the war on terror a "bumper sticker" slogan Bush had used to justify everything from abuses at the Abu Ghraib prison to the invasion of Iraq. "We need...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton says "If talk, bureaucracy and promises were enough" New Orleans would have been rebuilt three times over by now. The Democratic presidential candidate spoke to graduates at Dillard University in New Orleans today. She says rebuilding New Orleans is an "American obligation." One she says the Bush administration has failed to meet. The historically black college was heavily damaged by Hurricane Katrina. Clinton says she has a plan that would speed the pace of recovery and assess progress in shoring up levees. Nearly two years after the hurricane, about 40% of the city's population remains displaced.
