  • What the GOP can learn from Obama, Reagan, and even Hitler

    The Washington Times ^ | November 24 | Henry D'Andrea
    The 2012 presidential election was a devastating setback for the Republican Party. Still and all, for 2016 the Republican Party should get back up on their feet and take a few cues from Obama, Reagan and Hitler. In 2008, Obama won the country over with his promise of hope and change, but it wasn’t just the words he was saying, it was the way he delivered them. Then-Senator Obama was arguably the most articulate presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan. Even people who disagreed with his policies agreed that he knew how to make them sound like the right path to...

    Those arguing that President Obama’s victory in the election a few weeks back was due to fraud may have found a dubious ally in their quest to argue that Mitt Romney’s rightful victory was stolen from under his nose. That ally is the much-mocked Dean Chambers, creator of the now arguably discredited website UnskewedPolls.com. Chambers, fresh off his last venture into arguing with numbers, has created the site barackofraudo.com, where he has posted this map, which he claims represents states that President Obama won by voter fraud:
  • Obama does a little Christmas shopping on "Small Business Saturday"

    Hoping to encourage other Americans to participate in "Small Business Saturday" as an alternative to big chain-friendly Black Friday, President Obama today visited an Arlington, Va., bookstore to cross some items off his family's Christmas list. Accompanied by his daughters Sasha and Malia, the president journeyed across the river to One More Page Books, which the White House described as an "independent, neighborhood bookstore." After consulting his Blackberry for an apparent holiday wish list, he purchased 15 children's books before even browsing the store. "Preparation," he told shop owner Eileen McGervey, according to the reporter who covered the visit for...

Yes sir, the Republican brotherhood of Idaho's most eloquent idiots are teaching by example on how to be a poor loser. Assassination threats are in full swing, and many are in church praying that it happens. They know who they are, and so does history. They long for the good ol' days of crucifixions, lynchings, and the dark ages when heretics were burned at the stake. Good God, that damned word "change!" Can...
  • On a Largely Blue Island, an Exception: Trump Tower (91 NYC districts 100% Obama?)

    Its black glass exterior soars high above Fifth Avenue, and its gold-tipped revolving doors have spun the likes of Bruce Willis and Anne Hathaway into its waterfall-splashed atrium. But on Election Day, Trump Tower earned a different sort of distinction: a tiny island of Romneyville amid Manhattan’s deep, blue-state sea. … Mr. Romney won a single Manhattan precinct outright, a stretch of Park Avenue near the Waldorf-Astoria, where six voters showed up and four chose the Republican. But he suffered a resounding defeat in New York, a rare outbreak of consensus in a city famous for fevered disagreement: in 91...

    The U.S. government plans to spend another $1 billion in Uganda through 2015 -- and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) will devote an additional $17.5 million specifically towards helping its Uganda unit to become more "adaptive, modern" and "effective." The $1 billion figure is part of the Obama Administration's $3.5 billion 2011-2015 Ugandan strategy, which aims to cut that nation's poverty in half ("$3.5 Billion 'Plan Uganda' Seeks to Cut Poverty in Half -- While Reducing 'Cattle Raiding,' Too" ; U.S. Trade & Aid Monitor, 5/18/11). The agency will hire a private contractor to carry out this "monitoring,...

    The legalization of marijuana by voters in the states of Colorado and Washington has sparked consternation in other parts of the world. Raymond Yans, head of the United Nation's International Narcotics Control Board, says the approvals send ‘‘a wrong message to the rest of the nation and it sends a wrong message abroad.’’ “What the voters in these states have overlooked is that marijuana is an important cash crop in many Third World countries,” Yans pointed out. “Legalization, if it catches on, will depress the prices that can be charged. This will negatively affect the farmers who grow it, the...

    Demographics alone are not destiny. There is nothing in this year’s election returns that guarantees Democrats a permanent majority in the years to come. President Obama and the Democratic Party earned the support of key groups — young people, single women, Latinos, African Americans, auto workers in the Rust Belt and millions of other middle-class Americans — because of our ideas. So, instead of resting on false assurances of underlying demographic advantages, the Democratic Party must follow through on our No. 1 priority, which the president set when he took office and reemphasized throughout this campaign: It is time to...

    I have been accused of using invectives and exaggeration in describing the current administration, which now has four more years to dismantle our Constitution. How dare I call the EPA a rogue organization? It's director, Lisa Jackson decided to enforce a mandate that oil refiners blend cellulosic ethanol into gasoline, diesel and jet fuel. There is one little problem though. It does not yet exist commercially. That is apparently of little concern to Lisa. The EPA fined refiners $6.8 million for not following their edict. They appealed her decision. She thanked them for their concern, but said the decision will...

    Since the presidential election, more than 750,000 people from all 50 states have signed petitions on the White House website saying they want their state to secede from the union. This is either the start of the second Civil War or the biggest case of sour grapes ever. Not that I blame people. When George W. Bush won a second term, I wanted to abandon the country on grounds that I couldn't live among people who would willingly re-elect a guy who: A) Couldn't pronounce the word "nuclear;" B) Practiced "strategery;" and C) Went after Saddam Hussein when Osama bin...

    Obama hits the links for post-Thanksgiving golfBy Sheldon Alberts - 11/23/12 11:44 AM ET President Obama hit the links for some post-Thanksgiving exercise on Friday morning, taking advantage of an unusually mild late November day in the Washington area. Obama played his round at Joint Base Andrews with White House assistant Eugene Kang, White House trip director Marvin Nicholson — the president's most frequent golfing partner — and Nicholson's brother, Walter. Obama is an avid golfer — he played his 100th round as president in June — but played less frequently during the stretch run of the election campaign. The...

    The fourth year of President Obama’s reign maintained his traditional omission of God from the Thanksgiving address to the nation. This break from his predecessors was vigorously defended by First Lady Michelle Obama. “Why should God get the credit for blessings that He had no part in creating?” Michelle asked. “It’s federal farm programs that ensure a robust harvest each year. It’s the FDA that guarantees the food we put on our tables is safe to eat. And it’s the generous expansion of eligibility for Food Stamps that has enabled even the poorest among us the opportunity to enjoy an...

Last week we were told by the Administration (and the compliant media) that during her now-infamous round robin of five Sunday news shows, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice was only telling us what she was told by the intelligence community. We were also told that references to al-Qaeda were edited out of the talking points in order to avoid tipping off the attackers that we were on to them. According to a...
