Hamlet should be on stage,
not in the Oval Office

Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin

President George W. Bush was mocked for saying he was the “decider.” But that is precisely what a president must be. Deciding is arguably the most important thing a president does, along with rallying others, whether in war or to support a domestic agenda, to an important national purpose. Presidents only make the hard calls, ones in which advisers are divided or uncertain. Everything else is handled a level or two below the president. If a candidate comes to office expecting a series of easy calls punctuated by a hard one now and then he’ll be disappointed — and overwhelmed. President

Men and women who put their lives on the line for the country cannot be expected to serve on a rudderless ship of state.

And because the "ship of state" has an inexperienced captain, it is set on a collision course with either another ship, or it will run aground in shallow waters - the captain´s favorite depth.

Seeing all sides of an issue has always been the Left´s strength; they make it appear that they alone are measured, tolerant and observant, weighing all sides of any given issue before deciding.

While on its face that is commendable, at some point, one should commit to a position, act upon it and stick to it unless contrary proof arises to contradict our decision. It´s called commitment and conviction.

But for God´s sake, this POTUS has never taken a firm stand on anything, especially Benghazi and now Syria and in fact has handed over responsibility to anyone who would take the hit except him.

The one thing of which Obama´s limited brain is certain is that America needs to be part of a one-world order, not the world´s greatest superpower, coming to the rescue of other countries who needed us. We have no right to be better, exceptional. We suffer from the sins of our fathers and those sins must be expiated.

Now, because of Obama´s reign of error, where do refugees go to be certain of freedom from tyrants and psychopaths. Where do they now go to find a benevolent, small government that cuts the shackles from them?

Thank you, Mr. President.

When you don´t have a deep seated love and respect for your country, dithering and ambivalence is the name of the game. It doesn´t concern you how the country is viewed by the world. Your world view is inward. It really is all about you. Obama is not upset with the problems of this county. What upsets him are people´s perception of him. He must always appear in their thoughts to be wonderfully wonderful, nothing less. All the chaos that follows his failed policies has nothing to do with him. The world just hasn´t caught up with his brilliance.

FTA: "The president is a fan of ´collectivism´...He chides those who think individuals built the country..."

Hamlet in The Oval Office? How about an undocumented communist foreign student who also happens to be a first-class jerk?...Being photographed for example, on several occasions, with his feet on The White House Oval Office Desk, a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1880, are not the actions of someone, in my opinion, with a profound reverence for America, our history or traditions.

That goes double for CinC. When you´re ordering people into war you don´t show them how sensitive you are and how much you are agonizing over the decision. Military people want to be sure their commanders have their back and aren´t going to say in the middle of it "oh maybe I´ve made a mistake, let´s just get out of here." This CinC has already lost two wars, Iraq (which was already won but he surrendered anyway) and Afghanistan. Now he´s working on the entire Middle East.

I don´t believe the left weighs all sides of an issue. Read the comments on any liberal website for proof. They may pretend to for show, but that is all.

They instinctively reject anything that goes against the leftist agenda. Leftists have their head encased in sand permanently.

We live in an age of science and of abound-ing accumulation of material things. These did not create our Declaration. Our Declara-tion created them. The things of the spirit come first. Unless we cling to that, all our material prosperity, overwhelming though it may appear, will turn to a barren sceptre in our grasp. If we are to maintain the great heritage which has been bequeathed to us, we must be like-minded as the fathers who created it. We must not sink into a pagan materialism. We must cultivate the reverence which they had for the things that are holy. We must follow the spiritual and moral leadership which they showed. We must keep replenished, that they may glow with a more compelling flame, the altar fires before which they worshiped. Speech on the Occasion of the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. Calvin Coolidge, July 5, 1926, Philadelphia.

This hideous neocon along with others helped destroy Bush by convincing him that American might could change the trajectory of the Mid East. He may have been the decider, but he decided wrong. The American public is now forever sour on ME intervention-and when Jen beats the Iran War drums, public opinion will still be NO. And any GOP potus candidate that tries to run as a neocon (e.g. Peter King) will lose-just like her pet rock Rommney.

AUSTIN — A Texas judge was expected to seat a grand jury Monday in an investigation into whether Gov. Rick Perry abused his power by vetoing funding for public corruption prosecutors last year. Special State District Judge Bert Richardson was to oversee the impaneling in Austin. The governor’s office didn’t return messages seeking comment, but The Austin-American Statesman and KVUE-TV reported that Perry took the unusual step of hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent him. The attorney, David Botsford, did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. In June, the governor threatened to veto funding approved by the Texas Legislature

A Texas man was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in state prison for urinating on the Alamo. Daniel Athens, a 23-year-old El Paso resident, pleaded guilty earlier this year to a criminal mischief charge in connection with the April 2012 incident at the Texas shrine. While Athens could have faced a maximum of two years in custody, a plea deal saved him up to six months in custody. Athens was also ordered to pay $4000 in restitution by District Judge Ray Olivarri. Since Athens is not eligible for parole, he will have to serve the entirety of his 18-month sentence. As detailed

When I first started hearing people on the political left describe themselves with some frequency as progressive back in the 1990s, the term did not seem tethered to the epoch-defining, early-20th-century spasm of moral crusading and government centralization that helped give us everything from trust busting to Prohibition to the Federal Reserve. As articulated by champions like Ralph Nader and Molly Ivins, the progressive label was both a way to get out from under the generation-old baggage of liberal-a term Ronald Reagan and others had turned into an epithet-and to differentiate lefties from seemingly apologetic triangulators like Bill Clinton and

For political junkies desperate for clues to the hottest House, Senate and governors’ races around the country, April is the cruelest month.

Here’s the good news for those of us hoping to determine whether Democrats or Republicans will be celebrating in the fall: From early May to early September, we’ll have a steady stream of conventions, primaries and runoffs to keep us busy.

Bad as Obama’s poll numbers are, they bode worse for Congressional Democrats. Obama is being buoyed by continued strong support from Democrat voters. The problem for Congressional Democrats is that November’s election outcome will not be determined in Democrat strongholds. Recent Quinnipiac polling data (released April 2, of 1,578 registered voters nationwide, with a MOE of +/-2.5%) showed the president with a deeply negative rating on his handling of the economy: 40% approval and 55% disapproval. In his sixth year in office, and the fifth year after the recession, 74% of respondents still rated the economy as “not so good” to

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
