Oh, NOW he tells us!

Here’s Bill Kristol on Joe Biden’s queer historical revisionism: Vice President Biden — who was for the Iraq war before he was against it, and who then argued that the surge could never work before he decided (in retrospect) that it did — said this to Larry King on Wednesday night: “I am very optimistic […]

Big spender Obama.

President-elect Obama’s transition team is promising that its $700 billion, or $850 billion, or $1 trillion, or whatever it now is “stimulus” won’t include pork-barrel spending. They must not have talked to the nation’s mayors, who recently responded to Mr. Obama’s request to compile their priority list of “shovel-ready” projects. By all accounts, the $73 […]

Krauthammer is not fooled.

The hard left is angry about Barack Obama’s decision to let Saddleback Pastor Rick Warren perform his inaugeration. But Charles Krauthammer is not fooled by Barack Obama’s apparant centrist manuvers. It begins with a near $1 trillion stimulus package. This is where Obama will show himself ideologically. It is his one great opportunity to plant […]

Dem’s culture of corruption.

For partisans, there’s the schadenfreude that comes with watching the Democrats — self-proclaimed anti-corruption zealots in recent years — explain why Blagojevich shouldn’t be lumped in with Congressmen Charlie Rangel (cut himself sweetheart deals), William Jefferson ($90,000 in his freezer) and Tim Mahoney (tried to bribe an aide he was sleeping with not to sue […]

Obama’s school choice hypocrisy.

The largest union in the U.S., with more than 3.1 million members, is the teachers union, less known to the public by it’s proper name, the National Education Association (NEA). In 2007 alone, the NEA spent more than $32 million on political lobbying, and more than $80 million on contributions almost exclusively to left-wing activist […]

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 […]

O-Bam-A voters display their NPR/PBS/Jon Stewart intellectual prowess.

A few points: It really gets funny about 5 minutes into it. Voter Erika was by far the most sensible, and bubbly cute. The rest were morons… Albeit, PBS-/NPR-/New York Times-educated morons. Along those lines, it really underscores the power of the mainstream media, no matter how archaic conventional wisdom says they’ve become in our […]

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 […]

The Obamamessiah!

[Washington Post] “OBAMAISM — It’s a Kind of Religion,” says New York magazine. “Those of us too young to have known JFK’s Camelot are going to have our own giddy Camelot II to enrapture and entertain us,” Kurt Andersen writes. The New York Post has already christened it “BAM-A-LOT.” “Here we are,” writes Salon’s Rebecca […]

Rahm Emanuel & Freddie Mac.

[Ed Morrissey] Now ABC reports that Obama’s new chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, sat on the board of Freddie Mac during the critical period: President-elect Barack Obama’s newly appointed chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, served on the board of directors of the federal mortgage firm Freddie Mac at a time when scandal was brewing at […]
