The Royal Presidency
National Review Online, by Mark Steyn

Original Article

Posted By:rubi03, 12/10/2012 11:59:27 PM

From the New York Daily News: “Snooki Gives Kate Middleton Advice on Being a New Parent.” Great! Maybe Kate could return the favor and give Snooki and her fellow Americans some advice. About fiscal prudence, for example. Say what you like about a high-living, big-spending, bloated, decadent, parasitical, wastrel monarchy, but, compared to the citizen-executive of a republic of limited government, it’s a bargain. So, while the lovely Duchess of Cambridge nurses her baby bump, the equally radiant president of the United States nurses his ever more swollen debt belly.

For some reason the phrase, ‘’let them eat cake’’ comes to mind.

Another excellent Steyn article that I would be pleased to post to FaceBook, except for the endless, mindless, nasty, prattling comment section that follows it.

It´s bad, but the 800K a year mayor of a small town Bell, CA and the 500-700K a year Bell sheriff suing for severance (though he´s already getting a fat pension) angers me far more.

I really, really hate that guy - as much as I ever hated Clinton during the height of Lewinsky.

King Barack, Defender of the Royal Teat, Protector of all Existing & Future Benefits, Forgiver of Student Loans, Champion of Green Energy, Viceroy of the Volt, Restructurer of Still Defaulting Mortgages and Dispenser of Abortifacients, we beseech thee to slay the GOPers.

Steyn points out, once again, the madness of King Barack of Obama. Yet his dutiful citizens adore him. See yea olde Rasmussen for O´s 0% rating, his best since 2009.

If I got parenting advice from Snooki, I would hurl too.

All across America tonight, there are kids without a home along with the elderly wondering how to keep the utilities on and buy food.

He Won! Honestly, if a terrorist took out Kate and company, the UK isn´t doomed. But if Obambi got a scratch, why the apoplectic media would have a mass movement and smell the place up. The world´s oceans would start to rise again and all the change we hoped for would end. In other words, on Dec 21, something will happen to Obambi and the Mayan prediction of the end of the world will come true. With all this in mind, we as the most broke of broke nations can spare no expense to protect Da Won.

One of the ´talkers´ recently reported it costs $500-$800 million to keep the royals every year, and it costs us, who are totally broke, $1.5 BILLION to keep our royals. UK gets a better deal. At least they get some tourist $$ back. We get scroooooed.

The Diane Sawyers are totally responsible for not doing the reporting daily of the incredible personal spending, staff of $100,000 people, Mooches organic garden for show and Bamster´s covert enslavement to Monsanto for genetically modified product,
the most raging, vindictive person ever in the White House, and stock footage 24/7 of his happy smiling face waving at nobody on and off the really expensive heliocoptor.
Diane is purposely, with malice aforethought
misleading America in her censoring attampts to kill this great country. She is the protection racket for all the White House and Congress greed, she, virtually alone allows it to happen.

Makes me want to weep. Americans are mesmerized by celebrity and royalty... Kennedys, Camelot, Princess Di, Royal Wedding, Kate and Wills... and now our very own Imperial President- Barry the Magnificent.

We´re pretty pathetic.

Controversy as Donald Rumsfeld says
a ´trained ape´ would manage the

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

Three Secret Service agents responsible for protecting President Obama in Amsterdam this week were sent home and put on administrative leave Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, according to three people familiar with the incident. One of them was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said. The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people. The embassy then alerted Secret Service managers on the presidential trip, which included Secret Service

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

London - A remarkable piece of high-tech data detective work has provided what looks to be the missing clue to the tragic fate of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, an expert said Monday. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak earlier on Monday said that information provided by British satellite company Inmarsat and the British government´s Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) confirmed that MH370 had flown to a remote part of the Indian Ocean where the flight ended. (Snip) Inmarsat had come up with a theory to apply to the data it had collected from MH370 during the flight, and had then tested the results on aircraft in

Former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news this week publicizing a new book about women’s rights. But, as is often the case with Carter, he drew more interest for comments he made about Israel and its supporters. When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor. I think the problem was that– that in dealing

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

First Lady Michelle Obama talked about America as she visited a school today in China. She talked about the American dream: And my story isn’t unusual in America. Some of our most famous athletes, like LeBron James, and artists, like the singer Janelle Monae, came from struggling families like mine, as do many business leaders -- like Howard Schultz. He’s the head of a company called Starbucks, which many of you may have heard of. When Mr. Schultz was a boy his father lost his job, leaving their family destitute. But Mr. Schultz worked hard.

Washington - A leading Democratic pollster predicted a "sobering" turnout disadvantage for her party in this year´s midterm elections and called on Democrats to articulate "a bigger economic agenda" this fall. "There is a huge turnout disadvantage and challenge," Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said Tuesday at a breakfast with reporters. "There is always a challenge in turnout in an off year, but it´s really dramatic this time." Lake was speaking a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. Lake and Republican pollster Ed Goeas revealed results of a new George Washington University poll that showed GOP voter intensity in 2014 outpacing

WASHINGTON — Spring break was never this dull. First Lady Michelle Obama’s kids finally hit the wall on their whirlwind visit to China, showing signs they’ve nearly reached their limit tagging along with mom as she visits site after site on what’s billed as a “person-to-person” tour. Accompanied by Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, the first lady on Monday toured Xi’an, an ancient city in the ancestral province of Chinese President Xi Jinping. They inspected the city’s 600-year-old wall, a day after touring the Great Wall near Beijing. Photos show Sasha looking like she’d rather be back home with her pals than hitting the

The Obama administration is prepared to give prospective Obamacare enrollees another half-month to signup for insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act website, healthcare.gov, treating the law´s March 31 regulatory deadline as a formality for Americans who claim they tried in earnest to sign up in time. During a March 12 congressional hearing, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told Texas Republican Rep. Kevin Brady that there would be no such extensions. ´Are you going to delay the open enrollment beyond March 31?´ Brady asked. ´No, sir,´ she replied. On the same day, Julie Bataille, a spokeswoman for the

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

[Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump] Rienzi pushed back: "No one´s discriminating against women, Andrea, all they´re saying is that, you´re right, these are personal decisions,
