    Is it cowardice? Is it indecisiveness? Or is it clever diplomacy? Depending on who you ask in Washington, you'll get a different explanation for President Barack Obama's silence, to date, on the subject of Libya. Since the uprising began, he has made only one extended comment on the Libyan rebellion, and it was thoroughly anodyne. He declared – surprise! – that the US "strongly supports the universal rights of the Libyan people." He said he had "instructed his administration to prepare the full range of options that we have to respond to this crisis." And then he concluded: "The change...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Calling the Declaration of Independence more than words on an aging parchment, President Barack Obama marked the Fourth of July on Sunday by urging Americans to live the principles that founded the nation as well as celebrate them. "This is the day when we celebrate the very essence of America and the spirit that has defined us as a people and as a nation for more than two centuries," Obama told guests at a South Lawn barbecue honoring service members and their families. "We celebrate the principles that are timeless, tenets first declared by men of property...

The people voted AGAINST Obama. It wasn’t just about Healthcare, Cap and Trade, Card Check, Stimulus Squandering, the lack of Transparency in the White House, Dirty Backroom Deal-Making, treating BLOOD-THIRSTY Moslem TERRORISTS as though they are common criminals, taking over Banks and Insurance Companies, taking over two thirds of the American Auto Industry, indebting...

Jones writes Monday: "The 65 percentage-point gap between Democrats' (88%) and Republicans' (23%) average job approval ratings for Barack Obama is easily the largest for any president in his first year in office, greatly exceeding the prior high of 52 points for Bill Clinton. "Overall, Obama averaged 57% job approval among all Americans from his inauguration to the end of his first full year on Jan. 19. He came into office seeking to unite

    BOSTON, MA (PIO) -- Officials say security screeners at Logan International Airport failed to spot a nuclear device in a passenger's carry-on satchel last month, but the man turned himself in when he realized his attempt to terrorize Americans was a total failure. Transportation Security Administration spokesman Jack Haas said in a written statement Wednesday that the unidentified man became agitated when stewardesses failed to take notice of him even as he hollered "Allahu Akbar!" and wildly waved the five-foot warhead. Even the efforts of passengers who tackled the man and tried to snatch the device’s detonator failed to raise...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. (PIO) -- Spurred by sinking support for his health care plan and skyrocketing veterinary costs, President Barack Obama has called for universal health care for an additional 200 million Americans. Dubbed OllamaCare, the proposal aims to extend health care benefits to all American animals including Representative Alan Grayson of Florida’s 8th congressional district. In a closed-door session attended by Democratic senators and several members of SEIU representing their brethren in the wild, the president said he sees health care as a birthright for all living things and swatted a fly with aplomb. Even so, he asserted that a...

    A White House official said the incident was an attempted act of terrorism. The FBI is investigating and President Obama, celebrating Christmas in Hawaii, was told of the incident about three hours after the plane landed, officials said. Obama has told White House officials that all appropriate measures be taken to increase security for air travel, a spokesman said. Nevertheless, officials said, they are not prepared to raise the terrorism alert level, currently at orange -- or the second-highest of five levels -- for domestic and international air travel.

    WASHINGTON -- After nearly a year in office, the defining political image of President Barack Obama has yet to emerge. Is he a hawk or dove, a liberal or a moderate? His Nobel Peace prize speech exposed his ambivalence. He harkened back to the Roman Catholic theologians to defend his "just war" in Afghanistan -- but he also expressed his ideals for a better world. Measuring Obama’s performance is truly in the eyes of the beholder. To those who were enthralled with Obama’s eloquence in the presidential campaign, reality is setting in.

Obama repeated his demand for action, telling ABC News "the federal government will go bankrupt" if the health care bill fails. He said Medicare and Medicaid are on an "unsustainable" path if no action is taken.

    Political success, as reflected in the recent gubernatorial races appears ever-more staked on the state of the economy. Official unemployment recently measured 10 percent, though the more-honest gauge (U-6) shows the nation running unemployment at a Depression-like 17.2 percent. In response to high unemployment numbers, Barack Obama has said, "I will not rest until all Americans who want to work can." Yet Mr. Obama's policies belie his words. In fact, what his administration is doing will ensure massive unemployment and endless economic stagnation. To understand why I make such a sweeping assertion, it is necessary to comprehend how our economy...

He explained, with examples, that it was so devoid of fact and reality, you'd have to stop the tape at every sentence and it would take the entire show to deconstruct it. About six hours later, the "Great One" Mark Levin took a stab at doing just that. Here is Obama's most pitiful speech to date, supplemented intermittently by Levin's analysis of it. This speech illustrates not only Obama's complete ignorance of basic economics, but also his pettiness, immaturity, unprofessionalism, and un-presidential-ness. Nearly a...

    The government is running out of ways to help the economy as the US faces major issues regarding credit and employment ahead, banking analyst Meredith Whitney told CNBC. cnbc.com Meredith Whitney "I think they're out of bullets," Whitney said in an interview during which she reinforced remarks she made last month indicating she is strongly pessimistic about the prospects for recovery. Primary among her concerns is the lack of credit access for consumers who she said are "getting kicked out of the financial system." She said that will be the prevailing trend in 2010. Despite being able to borrow at...

    The highlight, or lowlight, of today’s rare bipartisan meeting with Congress on the economy. Consider that progress: Remember, this is the same guy who once invited “the folks who created the mess” (read: Republicans, and only Republicans) to stop talking and get out of his way. President Barack Obama told House Republican leaders to “stop trying to frighten the American people” even as he and Democrats said they see a possibility for bipartisan cooperation on job creation legislation. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) told reporters that Obama made the admonition during a bipartisan meeting at the White House on...

    Who needs Congress to help govern America? Not the Obama administration, it seems. At the UN Climate Control conference in Copenhagen yesterday, Environmental Protection Agency head Lisa Jackson said that she wants to work with Congress to contain carbon emissions that her agency claims are "dangerous." "This is not an either/or moment. This is a both/and moment," Jackson said. Consider that the velvet glove covering the administration's extremist fist -- which had itself been revealed a day earlier in Washington. An Obama staffer -- speaking anonymously, of course -- told Fox News: "If [Congress doesn't] pass [emissions-control] legislation . ....

    Rush Limbaugh ^ | December 8, 2009
    RUSH: It is a crying shame, ladies and gentlemen, that that economic speech at Brookings that President Hoax and Change just gave was not in primetime. Hoax and Change. It's a shame it was not in primetime so all of America could have the choice of listening to his latest version of "I inherited and I am great." That is the theme of his speeches, I inherited, and I'm great. He dumped all over the Bush administration. TARP was flawed, his treasury secretary designed it! His tax cheat secretary designed it! It was flawed? My God, it is unbelievable what...
  • Obama Insinuates U.S. Did Not "Follow Rules of the Road" After 9/11 - Video

    Here is video of President Obama's during his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech today in Oslo, Norway. In this clip, Obama can't resist insinuating that the United States did not "follow the rules of the road" ourselves after 9/11 in taking military action against Iraq. He never mentioned Iraq explicitly, but the clear insinuation was there. He also declared what could be seen as the "Obama Doctrine." In stating his view on use of force, he made the statement "American cannot act alone." Now, what I hope he means is that it will be difficult for America to succeed if...

    On October 23rd, a reporter asked Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA): “Madam Speaker, where specifically does the Constitution grant Congress the authority to enact an individual health insurance mandate?” Speaker Pelosi shook her head and before moving on to another question replied: “Are you serious? Are you serious??” Pressed for a more substantive response later, Pelosi’s press spokesman admonished the reporter: “You can put this on the record. That is not a serious question. That is not a serious question.” The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) disagrees. In 1994, the CBO said of an individual mandate to buy health insurance: A mandate...

    When the Watergate break-in caused Richard Nixon to be pushed out of office, pundits said that it was the end of the "imperial Presidency." A President who was out of control US Presidency was out of control and that had exceeded the Constitutional limits of his power. I would submit that with the onset of Obama Presidency the imperial Presidency has come roaring back with a vengeance. First there is the matter of the oft-mentioned Czars. Originally, the title Czar (derived from Caesar) meant Emperor in the European medieval sense of the term, that is, a ruler who claims the...
