    By Mr. Curmudgeon:President Obama may have invoked executive privilege to blunt Congressional efforts to learn the truth regarding his administration's Operation Fast and Furious, which put weapons in the hands of Mexican drug cartels, but it didn't stop authorities south of the border from apprehending a killer.Jesus Leonel Sanchez is one of five men accused in the shooting death of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in the bleak Arizona desert on a cold December night in 2010. Two weapons recovered at the murder scene were later traced to the Justice Department's deadly gunrunning operation.Robert Heyer, Terry's cousin and the...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Democrats left their gathering in Charlotte, North Carolina, not having paid "their fair share." According to Bloomberg News, the party of the "little guy" left Charlotte "with more than $5 million in immediate obligations and may require a direct cash infusion from the Obama campaign to pay vendors," said Bloomberg.These vendors were located inside the Charlotte Convention Center and the Time Warner Cable Arena. Vendors located outside were equally short changed.Legacy Village was the vendor's area situated under a tent outside the convention hall, where delegates voted to expel God and Jerusalem from the party's consciousness before its...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Saint Paul called it the "substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." He was speaking of religious faith, of course. It has its secular variations, like the claims of diehard Bigfoot believers. The last defense offered by the man-ape aficionados is to say, "You can't prove he doesn't exist." This is known as "disproving a negative" or an "argument from ignorance."In his acceptance speech to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, President Obama said, "I'm asking you to rally around a set of goals for your country - goals in manufacturing, energy,...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Gone were the Greek columns of 2008 and with them, Denver's enthralled masses that totaled 84,000. Thursday, rain fell on Charlotte, North Carolina, and the hall seated no more than 22,000 desperate and crestfallen listeners. The backdrop to this occasion was a deep blue that reflected the mood in the hall and the country at large. Gone, too, were the magical incantations from an illusionist whose power failed to conjure up government-generated prosperity and well-being for the nation's more than 300 million soles.Left with nothing but a litany of failure to present his listeners, President Obama was forced...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Wednesday evening, Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate and self-styled Native American, Elizabeth Warren, told her party's delegates meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina, "People feel like the system is rigged against them. And here's the painful part: they're right." The rigging, insisted Warren, was the dastardly work of oil companies, billionaires and Wall Street CEOs.Warren, embroiled in a tight race against Republican Scott Brown, spoke prior to former President Bill Clinton, who demanded that Americans complete the "incomplete" hope and change aspirations of Barack Obama by returning him to the White House.That's when it struck me. Bill Clinton is from...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Democrats meeting at their national convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, were in a bit of a pickle. Word got out that God and recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital was struck from the Democratic Party platform, and so a hasty decision was made to rectify the telling blunder.Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, chairman of the Democratic National Convention, put a motion before the convention's delegates to suspend the rules and allow an amendment to the party platform. The measure passed by a roaring voice vote.That was the easy part.Then former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, platform committee chairman, rose...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Occasionally, even the Obama media feels compelled to report the truth. "Democrats opened their convention in Charlotte, N.C., today with the vision of keeping President Obama in the White House, but they were hit with the news that a new poll found his popularity among women in a tailspin and the national debt has zoomed past $16 trillion," ABC News reported.The bad Obama economy wages war on all Americans - which just happens to include women. The ABC News/Washington Post poll found the president's approval among the nation's fairer sex dropped by seven percent since last April. Women...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:President Obama and his defenders continue to hide his university transcripts, but the president was willing to reveal the grade he gives himself for handling the U.S. economy. "Incomplete," the president told a Boulder, Colorado, television station.And like the student groping for excuses to calm his angry and disappointed professors, Obama added, "Historically after these big financial crises, where a lot of people are dealing with debt or a collapse of a housing market, you know, that creates bigger challenges, and we're seeing this not just in the United States but around the world."So, not only did the...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:National Empty Chair Day (formally Labor Day), was quite a success judging by the lack of mainstream media coverage. I bet the nation's amber waves of grain were obscured by millions of empty chairs stretching from sea to shining sea.A hint to the new holiday's success was the Clint Eastwood marathon on American Movie Classics that same day. "Clint Eastwood resonates with voters outside the snotty, derisive NY-DC-Hollywood axis," conservative columnist Michelle Malkin told Politico, "He braved derision and ridicule for standing on the [Republican] convention stage."Make no mistake, the left's mockery of Eastwood's empty chair stunt was...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Hope and Change Part II is having a hard time finding an audience. According to the Associated Press, "Democrats have been fretting for months over whether the president can draw a capacity crowd at Bank of America Stadium. Polls show voter enthusiasm is down, as are Obama's crowds for his battleground state campaign rallies." As are his approval ratings ... now at a dismal 43% ... they forgot to mention.In other words "Empty Chair Day" appears to be affecting the upcoming Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, and has been extended through to November 6 - at...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Are you feeling lucky? Well, are you, punks? Inspired by Clint Eastwood's Republican Convention soliloquy to an empty chair, representing the vacant years of the Obama presidency, many have been inspired to emulate Eastwood by declaring Monday (formally known as Labor Day) "Empty Chair Day."As you may recall, the action hero of such film classics as "Dirty Harry" and "The Outlaw Josey Wales" used an empty chair as a prop to address our failed president. "We own this country," Eastwood said to the chair, "Politicians are employees of ours ... and when somebody does not do the job,...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Yahoo News Washington Bureau Chief David Chalian didn't realize his mic was "hot" during a joint Internet broadcast with ABC News. "They aren't concerned at all," said Chalian looking down at the Republican National Convention while Hurricane Isaac bore down on Louisiana, "They are happy to have a party with black people drowning."Last June, Politico reporter Joe Williams became a little too comfortable during an appearance with like-minded lefties on Martin Bashir's MSNBC cable program. "Romney is very, very comfortable, it seems, with people who are like him," insisted Williams, "That's one of the reasons why he seems...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:It's unusual for political documentaries to become box-office hits, but that seems to be the case for the film "2016: Obama's America." Dinesh D'Souza, who is also the film's narrator, wrote the book from which the Rocky Mountain Pictures' offering gets its name.According to Deadline Hollywood, Friday's box-office rating put Sylvester Stallone's "Expendables 2" at number one, "The Bourne Legacy" in second place and "2016" in third. "That's stunning," said the entertainment website, "because it's playing in 1/3 less theaters across North America than the other wide-release actioners."The film explores President Obama's early years; in particular, the people...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Computers at the University of Colorado have crunched data from all fifty states and are picking a winner in the 2012 presidential race - Republican Mitt Romney. Before you dismiss the computer's binary conclusion as wishful thinking, the same program has accurately predicted presidential winners beginning with Ronald Reagan's stunning and satisfying victory over Jimmy Carter in 1980. If that is not impressive enough for you, the program also predicted that in the election of 2000, Al Gore would win the popular vote but lose to George W. Bush in the Electoral College.If you happen to reside in...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Family Research Council President Tony Perkins was at the hospital just before midnight last Wednesday when Leonardo Reno Johnson was wheeled out of surgery, a bullet having been removed from his left arm. Earlier that same day, Johnson was in the lobby guarding the conservative Christian think-tank when a man possessing a Sig Sauer automatic handgun, two loaded magazines, 50 rounds of ammunition and 15 Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, attempted to enter the organization's offices.When an alert Johnson stopped the unfamiliar visitor and demanded identification, the man pulled his weapon and fired, wounding Johnson in the arm. Injured but undeterred,...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:The media is reporting that President Obama and his party plan to highlight the auto bailout as the centerpiece of their convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, this September. Saving the ailing auto industry, they believe, will show voters that Democrats may not create jobs but they can save them. Unfortunately, Obama's auto bailout is turning into yet another scandal of interest for congressional investigators.Rep. Dave Camp, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, demanded Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner turn over all documents concerning the administration's bilking of pension plans for 20,000 non-union GM/Delphi workers that suffered losses...
