Outside the Asylum
A former Alabama Congressman walked off the Democrats’ plantation last week, and former President Bill Clinton suggested that Mitt Romney had been a successful governor and his work at Bain shouldn’t be criticized. If the king rat and other notables have set foot on the plank; can the rest of the horde be far behind?
President Barack Obama’s campaign seems as organized as a hippie music festival about an hour after the bad acid begins circulating. Look at the rhetoric spewing forth from the campaign and note that panic appears to be growing with each tremulous step toward November.
Mitt Romney isn’t a bad guy; he’s just not my guy. I view Romney in much the same way I viewed 2008 GOP nominee Senator John McCain. Like the “maverick,” Romney strikes me as a placeholder. He’s someone who can believably fill the role of nominee without scaring too many people.
Let’s offer our gratitude to Hunter Rogers. Rogers is a regular kid living a regular life — at least, he was. Then, he ran into an intellectual roadblock: a teachers’ union thug posing as an educator. Last week, he recorded a “teachable moment” and posted it on YouTube.
Last week, an analysis by economist John Lott that appeared in the National Review (and went unremarked upon by the corporate media) revealed that Barack Obama’s 2009 bailout of the auto industry is likely one of the greatest boondoggles of the modern age.
Should you ever visit the U.S. Department of Labor, you’ll have the opportunity to gaze upon an image of the Labor Secretary during a march. Arms linked, the Secretary, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and a coterie of union thugs are marching together.
At first glance, it seemed like a brilliant idea. President Barack Obama, faced with a campaign sinking like CNN’s primetime ratings, abruptly threw his social policy in reverse and “endorsed” same-sex marriage. But that first glance was as wrong as Bill Maher’s stand-up routine.
The government is basing a potential intervention into our lives, our refrigerators and even our wallets on a supremely flawed device — the BMI — and the subsequent presumption that Americans are a bunch of fat, lazy couch potatoes who require the government to watch their waistlines.
I often face questions about what some consider a borderline obsession with Attorney General Holder and Operation Fast and Furious. When I do, I respond thusly: The chief law enforcement officer of the United States of America is clearly attempting to obfuscate his involvement in a remarkably ill-conceived and implemented Department of Justice program which produced no results beyond a body count.
May 2, 2011 was a pretty good day. The U.S. military and intelligence community managed to nail down a solid location on al-Qaida mastermind and erectile dysfunction sufferer Osama bin Laden. U.S. Navy SEALs swooped down in a daring raid and punched bin Laden’s ticket to the underworld.
