Rewarding murderous behavior.

Here’s Matt Welch on the president’s comments at the U.N. this week: As Eugene Volokh recently pointed out, “Behavior that gets rewarded, gets repeated.” If all it takes to earn a White House call for global condemnation of a single piece of expression is some violent protests outside a dozen or two diplomatic missions, then […]

Obama cronies do 180 on Libya (quietly)

To say this is shameful is to insult shame. [NBC News] For the first time since four American diplomats were killed during violent protests at the U.S. consulate in Libya, the White House spokesman acknowledged that the attacks were an act of terrorism. During a gaggle with reporters on Air Force One, Press Secretary Jay […]

Will Obama release Sheik Rahman?!?

If this is true, it’s absolutely inexplicable, unforgivable and despicable. [NY Post] The Obama administration is weighing the release of blind Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman — the spiritual adviser to the 1993 World Trade Center bombers — in a stunning goodwill gesture toward Egypt that has touched off a political firestorm, officials said yesterday.

Here’s Jonah Goldberg: Over at MSNBC, a riot of consensus broke out when contributors Mike Barnicle and Donny Deutsch as well as University of Pennsylvania professor Anthea Butler all agreed that the people behind the video should be indicted as accessories to murder. “Good morning,” declared Butler, “How soon is Sam Bacile [the alleged creator […]

Obama’s Libyan narrative

I think it was put best earlier this week when some columnist — I forget who — tweeted that you know things are bad when the Libyan president becomes more credible than the American president. The Obama administration asks us to believe that on September 11 — when there have already been protests at our […]

Never forget.

Obamacare in one sentence.

Hat tip to Frogbrother:

Clinton’s GM Fiction.

[National Review] The Democrats cling to the ridiculous claim that the bailout of GM and its now-Italian competitor, Chrysler, saved 1.5 million U.S. jobs. This preposterous figure is based on the assumption that if GM and Chrysler had gone into normal bankruptcy proceedings, the entire enterprise of automobile manufacturing in the United States would have […]
