Fifty years ago, Martin Luther King Jr. stood at the Lincoln Memorial and delivered his “I Have A Dream Speech.” Imagine what King might have thought if he were still around to watch the spectacle that unfolded last weekend — a spectacle that disingenuously billed itself as a National celebration of the 50th anniversary of that famous march on Washington.
Last week, the Syrian government of Bashar Assad decided to cross whatever line comes after the “red line” that President Barack Hussein Obama declared uncrossable more than a year ago. Now, we’re gearing up for war in Syria because some lunatic islamofascist used weapons of mass destruction against a bunch of lunatic islamofascists.
As a father, Delbert Benton deserved to bid farewell to his family. As a man, he deserved to meet his maker on his own terms. As a warrior who put his life on the line for his country, he certainly deserved better than to be killed by thugs. At the very least, he deserved better than to have his commander in chief ignore his senseless and brutal demise.

So let me say this: Holder got one right — sort of.
Late last week, President Barack Hussein Obama identified “health insurance” as a Constitutionally guaranteed right. Obama’s accomplices took to the blogosphere to celebrate the newly decreed “right.” And Obama transmitted his proclamation through the White House’s Twitter account.

It’s fitting that President Barack Obama is vacationing this week with his private-jet-setter cronies in the wealthy Democrats’ enclave of Martha’s Vineyard, Mass. Where better for President “Better Bargain for the Middle Class” to cool his heels than the sort of place where members of the middle class are welcome only if they’re waiting tables or carrying golf bags?
Every promise President Barack Obama and his accomplices have made regarding every major facet of Obamacare has turned out to be as honest as a Lois Lerner deposition. What’s more, thanks to the Democrats’ machinations, they bear none of the risk and none of the cost. If that’s not fraud, then Bernie Madoff was just a misunderstood philanthropist with a slight gambling problem.
