WASHINGTON -- Reviewing the last few months of this tumultuous presidential campaign, I see the debates as having a wondrous salience. The first was the most momentous since Nixon vs. Kennedy, though that 1960 confrontation was mostly a matter of cosmetics. Listening to it on radio, many in the audience came away thinking that the participant with the five-o'clock shadow had won. That would have been Richard Nixon. In debate this time around, Mitt Romney hammered Barack Obama mercilessly. Under the ongoing assault Obama's knees buckled and he repeatedly looked glassy-eyed.
Talk about a guy who has spent too much time at his local country club..."Au Revoir" is just so...French! How suave of you Mr. Editor to take us into your world of crystal ball dreaming, leaving the heavy lifting once again for the grunts you so often lack the respect to pay any homage.
This election is by no means finished, with a victor declared. B. Hussein Obama-Mao has his lawyers in the wings and will not go "quietly into the night" as so many others wish.
Time for Emmett to consider donning sreet gear and join we regulars out in the fog for some real fun!
Smarmy lines don't really cut it when one is up against the reality of an evil dictator who has been way too successful for four years.
Imagine what he intends to do if given a 2nd chance...
Outstanding article. I printed it out for others earlier this morning. Regardless of everything this president did NOT do, or the utter failure of projects he funded, the daily updates on Obama's involvement with the deaths of 4 Americans in Benghazi are mind-boggling. .... Congress tossed another president out of the Oval Office for attempting to cover up details of a break-in at a local hotel. No Americans died there, nor was that president discovered to be collaborating with terrorists.
I am still waiting to learn WHO has the authority to dismiss this traitor in the White House, since the current Congress is too afraid to take action.
Agreed #4 but R +2 might not be enough to overcome the left's vote early and vote anyone who doesn't show up way of electing. We need to make sure no vote for R sits at home thinking it's going our way. I am always blown away by those who sit at home.
Always be careful about urging people to get out and vote. Those who need urging are often those who haven’t been paying attention, and that sort is all too likely to make the wrong choice. Those who have been paying enough attention will damn sure be getting out to vote, knowing as they do how critical it is to oust this disastrous president.

I'm to the point that I don't even want to exact revenge for all the ill deeds this fraud has wrought on this country. I just want to get rid of him and his stench and send him into oblivion.
Mitt can methodically clean up his mess and bring daylight to all his corruption and cowardice in a reflective way rather than an aggressive manner. The best way for this country to heal itself and move on is to totally dismiss the memory of the physical person. If Mitt does it right, no words will be needed to convey the national nightmare that resulted from electing an unqualified, incompetent, corrupt street punk. Never forget the stain, but throw away the empty suit.
#7, it is the House that can bring impeachment charges against the pResideent, but the Senate has the vote on whether to convict or not, and with this particular Senate,... No way. It would be a waste of time and effort.
#22 I want revenge. Im a GenXer who has had to live in the shadow of these revenant Marxists all her life, who was only a baby during the last years of Vietnam but picked up enough then to know the hippie Left was bad news then, and they have dominated the conversation of my life since then...and now their most vitriolic, vicious, and evil portions have taken my country hostage. The Weather Underground has a tight hold of the country I love and my daughter will have to live the consequences and gird any children she has against the revenants that will surely show up in their lifetime. I hate them for that. HATE. THEM.
No I want REVENGE. I want blood. I want Obama arrested and humiliated in front of the whole country. I want his vicious evil psychotic Weather Underground Marxist collaborators executed. I want the Hollywood useful idiots FLOGGED PUBLICLY, then dropped off in Cuba and NEVER allowed to return to the United States. I want them living the Socialist Utopia they have tried to foist on those of us who only wanted the representative republic our founding fathers dreamed for us. I think the blood of our Founding Fathers CRIES OUT for revenge. Ive had enough. I want it NOW. Not in the future. Not on my grandchildren's shoulders. NOW. MINE.
#24 Aubreyesque - Just tell us how you really feel.
Yes, I also think this bunch needs to be punished. If for no other reason than to be made an example of. And since Bronco Bama has only served one term, guess what? He can run again. We need to make sure he is ineligible (what a concept!) to run again. Everyone in his communist gaggle, and the horses they rode in on, should be airlifted and dropped into N. Korea. Cuba is way too close.
Was musing in the early morning fog of awakening that there are a lot of folks who would not want O's story to be told at all. I'd be very careful over the next few months if I were him, as there are those supposedly on his side that wouldn't benefit by his real story coming out.
People have to rise up in numbers never seen before and get to the polls on Nov.6 and vote the evil Obama and his evil allies out of power forever! This can't be close. They can cover close with their cheating. This has to be a landslide!
We didn't win this thing yet. Even though I detest early voting (I don't trust it), I voted yesterday and because, all over the country, some Romney votes have been showing up as Obama votes (Google it), I triple checked my vote before pressing the Cast button and I still didn't trust that my vote would be honestly counted.
One more thing about the integrity of voting machines. Here in Las Vegas, people make and daily use thousands of slot machines that are tamper proof and can't be jiggered in order to cheat. Unless, of course, the owner/maker/programmer of the machine wants to cheat. Same with voting machines. They can be programmed any way the programmer wants to program them.
Then there is the problem of security. This early voting boondoggle creates a security nightmare. Here in Las Vegas, for about 10 days, we had 80 separate sites where voting was available on rolling days which meant that hundreds of voting machines were constantly in motion in the backs of trucks making security essentially nonexistent.
IMHO, our elections have become a farce! Like the man said, it's not who votes, it's who counts the votes that determines the winner.
It took him 2 weeks? It was obvious in the 2008 primaries that Obama was over his head. As for the time of Carter, I remember those days, some of you may not. I remember that everyone thought our best days were behind us. The world had run out of energy and the Japanese were taking over our businesses. Then Reagan said it was morning in America and he was right for 12 years.
Old time conservative, Emmet Tyrell, remember him well, is a present time RINO, and until Obozo is OUT of office, GONE, there can be no good news like this piece from an out of touch oldster. Let's face it, Tyrell is not leading the New Media, is not an active reserching part of the counter establishment Brietabartian force that is doing its utmost to save America. This is as untimely as Christie smiling with Obozo. That one made me sick.
#24,I totally agree. My dream is to see barkey being led from the WH in handcuffs and placed in Federal Prison for fraud and committing high crimes and misdemeanors against our great country and the American people. The linebacker and her mom being dragged out without being able to take the china, the silver - or even the audacious wardrobe that we, the taxpayers, paid for that insufferable affirmative action mooch. She will always have memories of the lavish, in your face tax paid vacations to comfort her after her public fall to disgrace. It is a dream~~
Poster 24 makes some good points. We watched Bill Clinton, impeached and disbarred, yet he still escapes the humiliation he deserved. He's still able to go out and speak in public while the media and democrats portray him as honorable when he is not. Hillary becomes a senator and SOS. She jet sets all over the world, living lavishly, destroying our nation and reputation around the world. Ted Kennedy killed a woman and he was the Lion of the Senate. Obit is Clinton, Hillary, Ted Kennedy and countless others who have done major damage to this country only to go on and live in the lap of luxury with honorable positions. People who should be under jails accumulated ill gotten gain and it seems they will never pay. But, they will pay. We may not see it and that might make the fact that they will pay seem not good enough for some of us. I can certainly understand where 24 is coming from. God is the only righteous and just judge, but He gives us the ability to make laws and execute justice and that is what's lacking in all of this. None of us want obit to pay just for the sake of it. We want him to pay because his actions cry out for justice. People might say that conservatives are no different than the rabid left, but we don't accept that because it's not true. It's not about politics and our guy winning. This is about whether we will remain a free people. This skating by America hating people has to stop. Something's got to give.
Adios, Obie. My vote was cast last week in Colorado and I hand-delivered my ballot to my county clerk to make sure it was counted. Five more days, folks, must keep the focus and pressure on until we know for sure Obie and Bite Me are gone.
24 is heavy, KNOWS the underlying Marxist dark currents are the basis, the deep basis for all this uniformly (read that Communist Party Line, uniformly developed lying from the White House, the Congress, any bureaucrat given permission to indoctrinate, all the main TV Mafia Media led by leading propagandists Diane Sawyers Snserson Cooper Steve Pelley on and on the commie lot of them. This vast stealth protection racket allows its sickening puppet leader to golf, party, soak up the Hollywood America hating actors and Spielbergs amidst his deathly avoiding his duties to protect that bring death to others We are not supposed to use words like scum.
Among the most offensive features of the ironically titled “Affordable Care Act” is its designation of the Internal Revenue Service as the main enforcer of the law’s many mandates, taxes, penalties and reporting requirements. It exponentially increases the power of a group of bureaucrats notorious for repeatedly abusing their authority. Now, highlighting the growing gulf between the government and the governed that has become the hallmark of the Obama era, these IRS enforcers are asking their congressional representatives to spare them the indignity of enrolling in Obamacare’s insurance exchanges.
When Obama’s Secretary of Health and Human Services strode to the podium at last week’s NAACP conference, it was expected that she would engage in a certain amount of pandering to the grievance mongers who have long since taken control of that once-great organization. Such tawdry displays are, after all, a standard feature of the Democrat repertoire. It isn’t clear, however, that anyone anticipated the depth of sheer demagoguery to which she would descend in that speech. She compared Obamacare’s opponents to the people who opposed civil rights during the 1960s, embroidered her father’s civil rights record and even added
As far back as 1604, when James I of England published A Counter-Blaste To Tobacco, smoking has been recognized as a public health threat. There have since been countless attempts to discourage tobacco use by the general populace. Among the few such efforts to achieve any success has been the practice, by insurance companies, of charging higher health premiums for smokers than for non-smokers. Thus, not even Obamacare’s opponents objected when its authors inserted a provision permitting insurers to penalize smokers with a 50% surcharge. Predictably, however, Obama administration ineptitude will prevent this provision from taking effect.
The White House says the decision, announced last Tuesday, to delay implementation of Obamacare’s employer mandate was made because “a dialogue with businesses” revealed the need to reduce the reporting burden it placed on employers. This tale is enough to make a cat laugh. This crew doesn’t do “dialogue.” Your BS detector badly needs a tune up if it didn’t start buzzing when Valerie Jarrett blogged, “We’re listening.” The delay is obviously due to the ineptitude of the Obama administration, and this is the fourth major provision of PPACA to be repealed or delayed for the same reason.
Documents Show Liberals in I.R.S. Dragnet," read the New York Times headline. "Dem: ´Progressive´ Groups Were Also Targeted by IRS," said U.S. News. The scandal has "evaporated into thin air," bayed the excitable Andrew Sullivan. A breathlessly exonerative narrative swept the news media this week: that liberal groups had been singled out and, by implication, abused by the IRS, just as conservative groups had been. Therefore, the scandal wasn´t a scandal but a mere bungle—a nonpolitical series of unhelpful but innocent mistakes. The problem with this story is that liberals were not caught in the IRS dragnet.
It´s now official. America is the France of the 21st century. France was a big power in the 18th and 19th Centuries. The French were pretty much in a constant state of war what with everything from the Seven Years´ War, to the French and Indian Wars, to the American Revolution, to the Napoleonic Wars.Then came the 20th Century when World War I was mostly fought on French soil leading to their preemptive surrender in World War II. Since then the French still pretend to be a full-fledged member of the Planetary Cool Kids Table,
In his January inaugural address sketching out the promise of a second presidential term, here are some things Barack Obama did not mention: Surveillance. Drones. Syria. Chechnya. North Korea. Benghazi. Guantanamo. And yet from roughly March 6, the day Rand Paul staged his 13-hour Senate filibuster to protest Obama’s drone policies, the White House has been whiplashed from one foreign policy and national security crisis to another. Facing a near constant state of emergency, Obama has been hard-pressed to promote his message on issues like gun control, immigration, health care and the economy.
Barack Obama’s “reset” with Russia is really going well, don’t you think? Russia is defying America by granting Edward Snowden, who exposed some of the most classified secrets of our government, safe haven as he continues to elude capture. As Reuters reports: Washington was stung by Russian defiance… The White House said it expected the Russian government to send Snowden back to the United States and lodged ‘strong objections’ to Hong Kong and China for letting him go.
On Tuesday, President Obama will announce his plan to increase everyone’s power bill. Or, as he puts it, “a national plan to reduce carbon pollution, prepare our country for the impacts of climate change and lead global efforts to fight it.” If you accept the science of global warming, then you accept the fact that the president’s unilateral action on climate change will have absolutely no effect in terms of adjusting the global thermostat to a temperature Obama finds desirable. The rest of the developing world, anchored by India and China, are building carbon-burning
Many people on the political left don’t much like the First Amendment. That seems odd to someone of my generation. In past times people who suppressed what the Supreme Court ultimately ruled speech—student armbands, nude dancing, flag burning—were usually conservatives. But now it seems that it’s mostly liberals who want to shut down speech that offends them, and it’s usually political speech which many people think was the main concern of the Founders rather than the kinds of speech referenced above. Anyway, here are some examples of liberals trying to shut down speech.
In a windowless office in the basement of the West Wing, behind a utility room and next to a fire-alarm panel, David Simas is marking up another whiteboard with blue ink, hoping to explain one more time just how the President’s health care reform law will work when the time comes for uninusured Americans to sign up this fall. The abstraction of Obamacare is about to become reality. But will anyone know what to do? An estimated 7 million Americans will join
WASHINGTON — You might call North Dakota the antithesis of President Obama’s political base. Whites make up 90 percent of its population, which is fewer than one million people and mostly in rural areas. Its proportion of people 65 and over exceeds the national average. There was never a chance that North Dakota would give Mr. Obama its three electoral votes. So Mr. Obama has not given North Dakota his time. It is one of six states he has not visited as president, along with South Dakota, Arkansas, Idaho, South Carolina and Utah. He has gone just once
FORNEY, Texas - George Zimmerman, the former Florida neighborhood watch leader cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was pulled over for speeding in North Texas on Sunday, CBS DFW reports. According to the station, Zimmerman was armed when officers pulled him over on Highway 80 in Forney, east of Dallas. (Snip) The officer reportedly did not recognize Zimmerman, who was driving a Honda pickup. Zimmerman told the officer he was armed and was then told to put the weapon in his glove compartment, according to the station.
Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State. McCain, reportedly trying to win back his reputation as a GOP maverick, was asked by the New Republic
President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,
Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.
The former commander of special operations in Northern Africa told a closed-door briefing today that he was largely detached from events the night of the Benghazi attack as he was traveling at the time. The testimony of Col. George H. Bristol, USMC, Former Commander, Joint Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara, Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command Africa, had been eagerly anticipated by members of Congress. Originally, lawmakers had been told by the Defense Department that he had retired — the actual date is Aug. 1, an “administrative error” according to the Pentagon — and that they didn’t have
In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.
Karl Rove and more than one hundred Republican donors sent a letter to Republican members of Congress on Tuesday, urging them to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would include, among other provisions, granting "legal status" to illegal aliens who meet certain criteria. Anticipating that lawmakers will face resistance to the bill when they go home for the August recess, the letter marks the escalation of a campaign in which Republican leaders and donors are pressuring House Republicans to act on an immigration reform bill.
Mark Levin, who hosts one of America´s top radio talk shows and is considered by supporters to be the people´s pundit on the Constitution, is rallying his 8.5 million-strong audience to demand an historic convention of state governments to halt the "oppressive power" of the federal government. The author of two New York Times bestsellers on the threats to the Constitution, Levin hopes his latest, "The Liberty Amendments," out mid-August, will spark the state lawmakers to tap a rarely used Constitutional provision to institute measures that would brake President Obama´s use of executive orders, bar thousand-page laws and
No matter how much you may hope for it, it seems unlikely that you´ll be using the phrase "Senator Sarah Palin" with any great regularity in 2015. A new poll indicates that the former Alaska governor is about as popular in the state as Barack Obama — which is to say, not very popular at all. But even more surprising, while the former vice presidential candidate has made Alaska a central part of her public image, the state´s residents split on the question of whether Palin is all that Alaskan. Conducted by Public Policy Polling,
In her first speech since taking over the Environmental Protection Agency, Gina McCarthy came out swinging Tuesday and promised to ramp up the aggressive climate change agenda laid out by President Obama.(snip)“Can we stop talking about environmental regulations killing jobs? Please, at least for today,” she said during remarks at Harvard Law School. “We need to cut carbon pollution to grow jobs. We need to cut carbon pollution to strengthen the economy. Let’s talk about it positively. Let’s approach this as an opportunity of a lifetime. There are too many lifetimes at stake.”
