Actually it does matter, Hillary.

Here’s a great retort by the Washington Post’s Erik Wemple to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s jaw-dropping question “What difference, at this point, does it make?” whether the Bengazi murders were a result of a spontaneous protest gone violent or a premeditated terrorist attack. No matter your view of the media’s role in Benghazi; no […]

Re: Sanford, Ensign and hypocrisy.

The liberal media pile-on over the Sanford and Ensign extra-marital affairs aren’t just a collaboration of double standards, they’re off base too. Consider the New York Times’ Gail Collins: I’m thinking it’s time for the Republicans to apologize for putting us through the Clinton impeachment. We seem to have pretty well established that sexual stone-throwing […]

Obama mulls!

[Washington Post] Senior Obama administration officials are debating how to address a potential terrorist threat to U.S. interests from a Somali extremist group, with some in the military advocating strikes against its training camps. But many officials maintain that uncertainty about the intentions of the al-Shabab organization dictates a more patient, nonmilitary approach. Al-Shabab, whose […]

Freeman’s Folly.

Surprise, surprise: Another Obama intelligence community leader doesn’t know what the hell he’s talking about: Former U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia and likely chair of the National Intelligence Council (NIC), Chas Freeman in 2002: “I’m a very practical man, and my concern is simply this: that there are movements, like Hamas, like Hezbollah, that in […]

Clinton, with a side of Hoover.

What we learned from President Herbert Hoover is that the worst thing one can do when in an economic slump, especially a big one such as the 1929 market crash, is to raise taxes. Raising taxes discourages growth, expansion, spending and most importantly, hiring. So, one must wonder what’s going to be the result of […]

Leahy, investigate thyself.

Leahy Proposes Panel To Investigate Bush Era U.S. Attorney Firings Among Issues By Philip Rucker Washington Post Staff Writer Tuesday, February 10, 2009; A04 The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday called for a “truth commission” to investigate controversial actions of the Bush administration, including the politically inspired firings of U.S. attorneys, the treatment […]

The biggest revisionist history job in revisionist history.

Courtesy of the New York Times, the sheer scale of their “Bush caused the mortgage crisis” lie is staggering. That the New York Times engages in purposeful amnesia over the 1970s to the 1990s, the Clinton Administration, the Community Reinvestment Act, or that Democrats in Congress blocked every attempt to regulate Fannie Mae and Freddie […]

Change? CitiBank, Bob Rubin & Obama.

“Citi never sleeps,” says the bank’s advertising slogan. But its directors apparently do. While CEO Vikram Pandit can argue that many of Citi’s problems were created before he arrived in 2007, most board members have no such excuse. Former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin has served on the Citi board for a decade. For much of […]

Change = Clinton Cronies.

Funny, but I recall the legions of Obamamessiah backers claiming that an Obama-Clinton ticket would undermine his image of bringing “change” to Washington; “New Politics” and all that recycled junk. Low and behold, “Thirty-one of the 47 people so far named to transition or staff posts have ties to the Clinton administration, including all but […]

Obama renditions?

Surprise, surprise, in a headline titled, “Secret order lets U.S. raid Al Qaeda around the world,” the New York Times leaks more U.S. intelligence to our enemies. The United States military since 2004 has used broad, secret authority to carry out nearly a dozen previously undisclosed attacks against Al Qaeda and other militants in Syria, […]
