Useful Idiots | Alan Charles Itzkoff

useful-idiots

Nothing screams “unhinged” more than the behavior of Hillary voters since the shocking electoral victory of  Donald Trump this past November.  If ever there was an example of a nation full of people stuck at the first stage of grief, this is it.  Coming to terms with the concept that the American people rejected their [...]


Is Obama A Radical Muslim Sympathizer? | Alan Charles Itzkoff

obama-muslim

Many people have accused Barack Hussein Obama of being a closet Muslim.  But, so far, there is no evidence to suggest that this is so.  The President claims that he is a Christian and a man should be taken at his word unless it can be proved otherwise.  That said, Obama may not be a [...]


Blood On Their Hands | Alan Charles Itzkoff

cnn-blood

It has been said that perception is reality. When I was a kid growing up in NJ in the Sixties and Seventies, my parents told me to respect the police and I did. I watched shows like Dragnet (Just the facts ma’am) and Hawaii Five-O (Book him Dano!) where the cops were the good guys. [...]


Why Must The SJW Crowd Be Such Jerks? | Alan Charles Itzkoff

sjwarrior2-jpg

Personally, I am a live and let live kind of guy. As long as you are not interfering with my pursuit of happiness, I am more than happy to let you enjoy yours. But, that isn’t enough for many. There are far too many folk in this country who feel like they have the right [...]


Status Quo Ante | Erick Erickson

Boehner Obama

Like when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object, we now know what happens when a candidate so weak anybody can beat him meets a candidate so weak he cannot beat anybody. Americans vote for the status quo. $6 billion later, Americans voted for the status quo. Karl Rove, call your donors. Republicans will keep [...]


Romney’s Economic Advisers Cost Him the Election, and It’s Time to Etch-a-Sketch Erase Them | John Tamny

13-600-450-etch_a_sketch_kids_toy-62_46_472_304

In short, President Obama ignored the basics of economic growth, the economy during his first term limped along as a result, and when the electorate reached the polls unemployment was abnormally high while GDP was abnormally low. The numbers, along with history, suggest once again that the election was Romney’s to lose. Yet he still [...]


Waiving Freedom | Thomas Sowell

Among the objections to Obamacare, one that has not gotten as much attention as it should is the president’s power to waive the law for any company, union, or other enterprise he chooses. The 14th Amendment to the Constitution provides for “equal protection of the laws” for all Americans. To have a law that can [...]


We’re Already Learning the Wrong Lesson | The Right Sphere

Posted by RB in Blog, Featured on November 7, 2012 10:45 am / 16 comments It’s the day after and the knives are already out. “We lost because Romney was never a true conservative.” or “We lost because the tea party didn’t show up.” or “We lost because… blah blah blah.” Here’s the reality: Everyone [...]


Review & Outlook: Hope Over Experience – WSJ.com

President Obama won one of the narrower re-elections in modern times Tuesday, eking out a second term with a fraction of his 7.3% margin of 2008, in a polarized country with the opposition GOP retaining and still dominating the House. Given that second Presidential terms are rarely better than the first, this is best described [...]


America Is Two Countries, Not on Speaking Terms | Michael Barone

You know who won the election (or whether we face another Florida 2000), and as I write I don’t. But whether Barack Obama is re-elected to a second term or Mitt Romney is elected the 45th president, the contours of their support during this fiercely fought campaign show that we live in Two Americas. The [...]


Catastrophe for Conservatives, But Not the End | The Blog on Obama: White House Dossier

The reelection of President Obama is a catastrophe for conservatives that will set the United States on a track from which it will be difficult to derail. But the task for the Right is not impossible. Obama’s victory is not a catastrophe, as some will maintain, because conservatism can’t prevail in an presidential election. The [...]


Obama victory means four more years with no hope of change | Charles Hurt

WASHINGTON — All that for nothing. It was the billion-dollar election that did not decide one single damned thing. Republicans control the House. Democrats control the Senate. And the White House remains in Democratic hands with absolutely no mandate whatsoever. Another four years with no hope of change. In this environment with this economy and [...]


Really clever American voters stick with Obama’s failed status quo | Andrew Malcolm

Well, American voters have made their 2012 presidential choice, and now they get to live with it. On Nov. 6, the same day that saw the election of Abraham Lincoln and reelection of Ronald Reagan, they opted to reelect Barack Obama, the first time since the Founding Fathers that the country has awarded two terms [...]


Krauthammer: Obama has ‘no mandate’ [VIDEO] | The Daily Caller

On Fox News Channel’s coverage of the presidential election, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer seemed to handle Gov. Mitt Romney’s loss as well as anyone on the right could be expected to, particularly given the surprisingly wide margin. Going forward, Krauthammer explained that President Barack Obama will not be as strong as he was in the [...]


Spite and revenge is the new hope and change | Edward Morrissey

Obama Depressed

It’s the kind of dumb statement that candidates make when they get tired. It’s the kind of lame utterance that campaigns dread when it’s their candidate who makes it, and exploit for all its worth when their opponent gives them a gift. All of the above happened on Friday, when a crowd at a rally [...]


Obama’s Revenge: America’s Challenge | Jeffrey Lord

Mad Obama

“This is about revenge.” — Rush Limbaugh on the policies of President Obama, February 27, 2009 “Voting is the best revenge.” – Barack Obama, November 2, 2012 It was the grand leftist experiment. It was Obama’s Revenge. A revenge designed to take what Ronald Reagan once called “the last best hope of man on earth” and, [...]


An Admirable Candidate and Man | Victor Davis Hanson

I believe Mitt Romney will win today (from both ends of my commute, I can notice even out here in blue California the strange Obama lethargy, as Obama signs and bumper stickers, ubiquitous in 2008, rarely materialized in either metrosexual Palo Alto or, its antithesis, the impoverished central San Joaquin Valley barrios) — even though [...]


Sandy and the Failures of Blue-Statism | William McGurn

Judging from their numerous appearances on our TV screens, Michael Bloomberg and Barack Obama have come through Hurricane Sandy just fine. The same cannot be said for their brand of governing. Of all the vulnerabilities exposed by this storm, the biggest hit may have been to Blue State Liberalism. The damage goes well past the [...]


Why The Ambassador Died | Walter Russell Mead

But the story raises deeper and far more troubling questions about how unprepared the administration was to deal with the new situation its intervention in Libya created. For months now, the security situation throughout Libya, in neighboring Mali, and in other countries has been deteriorating sharply. Bands of jihadis and their supporters are roaming almost [...]


Re-elect and we’ll see how much worse it can be | Glenn Harlan Reynolds

An amusing Tea Party billboard features President Obama saying “Things Could Be Worse. Re-Elect Me And I’ll Prove It!” Well, it would be more amusing if it weren’t so obviously true. By any reasonable measure, Obama’s is a failed presidency. The stimulus failed to stimulate, with unemployment remaining vastly higher than administration economists predicted — [...]


Romney Will Win Pennsylvania | Paul Kengor

“REAL Unemployment is 15 percent. FIRE OBAMA.” So says a giant billboard along the Pennsylvania Turnpike heading north from Breezewood through Somerset. As I drive a few miles more, there’s another billboard, this one with a guy with a gasoline nozzle in his ear. It declares, “Vote Change, Vote No-Obama.” As I continue upward through [...]


Who Are You? | Ross Kaminsky

As I await the arrival of my tickets to see The Who in concert in a few months, it is tempting in this election season to consider a 2012 version of the gauzy wisdom of “Won’t Get Fooled Again” — to wonder whether a majority of this nation still believes, or even wants to believe, [...]


Gross Misconceptions | Thomas Sowell

This country is at a historic crossroads, and the path we choose can determine our future far beyond the next four years. Our children and grandchildren may someday bless us or curse us for what we do this Tuesday. Against that background, it is painful to see the petty talking points and gross misconceptions that [...]


Ace of Spades HQ

My Prediction for Tomorrow Here’s the problem I have with the polls. The problem here is like the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill thing. I struggled to imagine a scenario in which both people were telling the truth, where the disagreements were just of interpretation. I couldn’t. It was impossible. Someone was lying. It was very frustrating [...]
