For 2012, Obama Is His Own Worst Enemy

By |

Unable to leave well enough (or "bad enough?") alone, President Obama's hodgepodge of consultants, advisers, and taxpayer-funded staff, appear to be working overtime to make their boss a one term president.

For months, I have been engaged in a nonstop debate with a friend. He insists that, given the ...

Joint Chiefs Chair Mike Mullen Plays Partisan Politics

By |

It is astonishing how the temperature in Washington, D.C. drops the instant Congress leaves town. Having wasted the nation's time for weeks on a divisive partisan issue of its own making, known to readers as "raising the debt ceiling," it has returned to what it does best: it is once again on ...

Senate Complicit in Obama's Libya Mistake

By |

Lovers of fiction, legal and otherwise, will long be feasting on the farce the Obama administration puts on before American people in whose name it pretends to govern. Now in its 14th week in what may be a perpetual run, the saga When is a War Not a War? has broadened its White House cast to ...

Congress Fails to Hold Obama Accountable for Libya Mistakes

By |

President Barack Obama seems hellbent on reigniting the centuries-old battle between the executive and legislative branches over which has the final say over the authorization of military force and for how long. Obama’s stubbornness and intransigence, like that of Wilson, LBJ, Nixon, and Bush 43 ...
