    Mitt Romney Announces He’s Not Running For President

    by Tammy on January 30, 2015

    I’ll add links and analysis as this unfolds. While I disagreed with some of his positions, I liked the Romneys very much. But this certainly opens up the field. Just as an FYI, Romney is the only person who ties Hillary in the polls. Others are obviously going to have to fill that gap. This news, of course, helps Jeb...

    WSJ: Barack Obama As ‘President George Costanza’

    by Shifra on January 30, 2015

    In a recent editorial, the Wall Street Journal compared POTUS to the Seinfeld character, George Costanza. Interesting choice. (Personally, I would have gone with ‘President Alfred E. Neuman’) Via WSJ: President Costanza’s Jobs Boom – A new study shows that Mr. Obama needs a ‘Seinfeld’ epiphany In a 1994 “Seinfeld” episode, George realizes that “every decision that I have ever...

    Caddell: “Never Seen A President Occupying Himself In His Own Fantasy World”

    by Tammy on January 29, 2015

    I love Pat Caddell, a clear-thinking Democrat. Here he is, once again, proving being a liberal doesn’t mean you can’t speak the truth. Via RCP. PAT CADDELL, FMR. DEMOCRATIC POLLSTER: When I watched the State of the Union address at the end when the president talked about how people shouldn’t demonize the other side and how you shouldn’t be fundraising...

    Fox’s Adam Housley Goes After White House Comments That Taliban Is Not A Terrorist Group

    by Tammy on January 29, 2015

    Obama’s regime is living in a fantasy world and desperate to have everyone join them. Via RCP. At Wednesday’s White House press briefing, deputy press secretary Eric Schultz wouldn’t call the Taliban a terrorist group, instead referring to it as “an armed insurgency.” “The Taliban is still conducting terrorist attacks. You can’t really say the war has ended as far...

    by Shifra on January 29, 2015

    At a pro-abortion celebration in Tampa, Bonni Axler, Florida secretary of NOW, covered her shoes in Target (classy!) bags, in an attempt to mock Sen. Joni Ernst’s story of growing up poor, with only one pair of shoes that needed to be covered in plastic when it rained.

    Bad Development: Jordan Agrees To Prisoner Swap With ISIS

    by Tammy on January 28, 2015

    This, of course, is awful, but we traded terrorists for a prisoner, so Obama set the precedent for this. This will not end well, kidnappings will increase and the world will fund the mass murder and terror that is destroying so many lives and threatens western civilization. Another chit for the Obama legacy. Worth embedding a Rumsfeld tweet here on...

    Obama’s Gum Chewing Disgraces Office of The Presidency… Again

    by Shifra on January 28, 2015

    Are we really asking too much of POTUS when we expect him to show some dignity whenever he represents the USA abroad? In November, he shocked the Chinese when he emerged from his car with a wad of gum in his mouth. And it wasn’t Juicy Fruit. Looks like he hasn’t kicked the nicotine habit, and needs to pop Nicorette...

    Bergdahl To Be Charged with Desertion? Ex-Military Intel Officer Says Yes

    by Tammy on January 27, 2015

    (Scroll for updates) This comes from an interview with Retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer on the O’Reilly Factor. I’m inclined to believe it but want to emphasize this is one person’s account. At the same time, if the report had gone Obama’s way and exonerated Bergdahl, I think we would have heard about it ages ago. The fact that this...

    In Memory Of A Survivor of Auschwitz, On The 70th Anniversary Of Liberation

    by Shifra on January 27, 2015

    When our children were very young, they often played together with the children of another family who lived on our block. We always marveled at how well they all got along, racing around the block on their Big Wheels. Often, their grandmother, who lived in the neighborhood, would hover nearby. She seemed like a nice person. But there was a...

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg Rules for Muslim Religious Liberty, Not For Christians

    by Shifra on January 22, 2015

    When I heard that Ruth Bader Ginsburg, along with all the other SC Justices, ruled in favor of a Muslim prisoner who petitioned to keep his beard, in violation of Arkansas prison rules, I thought that maybe she had “found religion.” Or something. But, no. Ginsburg is a Leftist. And, for some inexplicable reason, Leftists typically jump to defend Muslims....

    Why Barack Hussein Obama, Our Anti-Colonialist POTUS, Skipped The Paris March

    by Shifra on January 19, 2015

    For the past six years, I’ve been observing, mostly in horror, as Obama tries to “fundamentally transform America.” I find myself veering between two distinct explanations for his malevolence: 1. He is a narcissistic menace 2. He is an incompetent phony, “in over his head.” Neither seems, though, to fully account for his bizarre absence from the Paris march. But...

    Dear France, We Like You Better Than Ice Cream

    by Pat_S on January 16, 2015

    I heard that the White House wants a do over for the hug-to-France debacle today. Remember this cloying, juvenile sentimentality was supposed to be a recovery from the first embarrassment of not showing up with everybody else at the historic solidarity march. Word has leaked that this will be the next attempt at Kerry/Obama diplomacy. Is that Mooch singing? Update:...
