Obama's border morass

June 26th 2014 04:53
Is this the beginning of the fall of Rome (metaphorically speaking)?

Facing a massive rise in the number of undocumented and unaccompanied minors crossing the border, overwhelmed Obama administration officials are seeking up to $2 billion from Congress to deal with the "urgent humanitarian situation." In addition, the administration is creating a new branch of AmeriCorps to provide 100 lawyers or paralegals to help the unaccompanied youngsters navigate the deportation process.

Our insufferably incompetent leader is shocked ... SHOCKED at the developments on the border. Who knew that ignoring immigration laws and offering executive amnesty (he has a pen, you know!) would result in other countries' poorest citizens flooding across our borders?

The pliant, liberal media is trying desperately to cover the story (when they can even be bothered to do so) with an oh-how-horrible tone instead of the end-of-these-united-states tone it deserves. They are twisting about and looking for a way to set the blame for this at the feet of the GOP. The whole country (well, the ones with a modicum of intelligence and/or common sense) know where the blame for this fiasco lies -- and that's with "dear leader."

Well, America, you had a good run. It's very much downhill (RAPIDLY downhill) from here.

GOP -- political suicide?

April 29th 2014 02:38
Well, the GOP seems determined to commit political suicide:

A bipartisan overhaul of immigration, considered dead in the water just a few weeks ago, is not only alive, according to the House Republican leading efforts to broker a deal — it’s gaining steam.

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Fla., told CQ Roll Call that pro-rewrite calls earlier this week from two Illinois Republicans, Reps. Adam Kinzinger and Aaron Schock, recent comments from Speaker John A. Boehner, combined with a rash of immigration rallies and protests across the nation in recent days, are indications that momentum has shifted back to those hoping to implement an overhaul of the nation’s immigration laws this year.

Mark my words. This will be the end of the Republican Party. The average working person who votes for the GOP will just give up if the GOP spits in their faces and gives their corporate overlords the glut of cheap labor they want.

Will the GOP commit political suicide? It may take more than 30 pieces of silver this time, but there could be enough Judases in the GOP to make it happen.

Voting "None of the Above"

March 3rd 2014 21:36
This is a good idea:

A bill that would add the option of choosing “none of the above” on New Hampshire ballots seems like a quintessential proposal for the first-in-the-nation presidential primary state that prides itself on having discerning voters.

I like it. Too often, I felt that I had to vote for the lesser of two (or more) evils. If we had the opportunity to vote "none of the above," it could allow us to express our discontent with the choices available to us. It would essentially be a vote of "no confidence" if "none of the above" received the most votes.

I can't imagine this kind of thing could happen on any grand scale, but I think it would be a valuable tool in gauging the public's true views.

Liz Cheney is out

January 6th 2014 18:52
It looks like there won't be another Cheney in office in the near future:

Liz Cheney announced early Monday morning that she was withdrawing from the Wyoming Republican Senate primary, bringing an abrupt end to her unsteady challenge to the incumbent, Michael B. Enzi

Obama -- Error 404

November 9th 2013 15:23
I like cleverness. This is clever. Click here to see what I'm talking about:

Remind Democrats that Obamacare was a mistake with our 404 error bumper sticker – the same error message Americans are seeing each day when trying to logon to Healthcare.gov.

Good sign for GOP

October 12th 2013 02:57
This is good news. The GOP (well, the Tea Party wing of the GOP) is no longer jumping through hoops to satisfy big business:

Having failed to persuade their traditional Republican allies in Congress to avert a government shutdown, business leaders fear bigger problems ahead, and they're taking sides with a Democratic president whose health care and regulatory agenda they have vigorously opposed.

Amnesty group falls apart

September 21st 2013 03:07
It's sad when the best thing that happens in Washington is what they FAIL to accomplish:

The road to overhauling the nation's immigration laws became even more difficult Friday when two Republicans abandoned a bipartisan group that had been working to craft a solution in the House of Representatives.

Detroit and Obama

July 27th 2013 18:27
In last year's presidential election, Obama mercilessly mocked Mitt Romney for saying that we should let Detroit go bankrupt. He used the statement as a tool to show that Romney was heartless and incapable of leading this nation.

While Romney was talking mainly about the car companies in Detroit, his statement also applied very well to the municipality of Detroit itself

Mete out some justice to Holder

May 30th 2013 01:46
Eric Holder has been a partisan hack from the day he took office at the Department of Justice. Now, his duplicity appears to have caught up to him. He may have committed perjury by lying to Congress. The writers at Power Line reach this conclusion:

Paul quoted Richard Nixon’s statement that perjury is “an awful hard rap to prove,” and because perjury is so dependent on the defendant’s state of mind, Nixon was right. Still, in this instance there appears to be a sound basis to investigate whether Holder should be criminally prosecuted.
