Anatomy Of a Failing Presidency

This is the most comprehensive, yet concise, column on Obama that I have seen.

Anatomy of a Failing Presidency

By Gazette Staff Writer — Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

An article from American Thinker by Geoffrey P. Hunt

Barack Obama is on track to have the most spectacularly failed presidency since Woodrow Wilson. In the modern era, we’ve seen several failed presidencies–led by Jimmy Carter and LBJ. Failed presidents have one strong common trait– they are repudiated, in the vernacular, spat out. Of course, LBJ wisely took the exit ramp early, avoiding a shove into oncoming traffic by his own party. […]

Public Sector Unions: Compatible with our Constitution?

Daniel Henninger has an excellent column in today’s WSJ. The net is that Public Sector unions, signed into being by JFK via Executive Order, are bankrupting the country and are nothing more than dues machines for the Democrat party. (You may need a subscription to read the column.)

People need to think about the rationale for unions, the purpose of American government, and decide what they think is right, because these unions basically are unaccountable to the Public they purport to serve, and are a penalty on Americans that is bankrupting the States one-at-a-time.

The purpose of a union is […]

Yet Another (unneeded) Example of the Totalitarianism of the Left

Yep – one ALWAYS can count on the Left to ignore the will of the people in their quest for totalitarian rule.

Here’s a column on TNR suggesting what “should” be done if (when) Coakley loses.

Summary? Ignore the voters and do it anyway. Use some gimmicks to do an end-run around the just-expressed will of the people Congress is SUPPOSED to represent.

Any more questions about the totalitarianism of the Left?[…]

BTW – IF you haven’t yet donated to Brown, please do here. Thanks.

And there are reports coming from MA that, if Brown wins, the State and/or the Senate will delay his swearing-in until after the vote on Obamacare:

BOSTON (AP) – Massachusetts’s top election official says it could take weeks to certify the results of the upcoming U.S. Senate special election. That delay could let President Barack Obama preserve a key 60th vote

This would be hard to believe except for the fact that it is the MA Secretary of State saying it, and the MA Dems did […]

Steele & the GOP: A Suggestion

The GOP base is angry at the GOP National Chairman, Michael Steele. There are many good reasons for this, but it’s hard to see how this shouting match can help the GOP right now.

Steele, angrily defending himself (if not his actions), has told the GOP that , if they don’t like what he’s doing, fire him.

This comment sounds eminently reasonable. If you think something’s bad – do something about it – or not. But if you aren’t going to do something about it, whining makes no sense and should be left to Liberals.

There is a […]
