Barack Obama Is John Boehner's New Best Friend

By |

When did David Axelrod pick up John Boehner as a client, and doesn’t this present a conflict of interest with his role as President Obama’s senior political adviser? For some bizarre reason--perhaps the stress of skydiving poll numbers is inducing panic and madness--the White House political ...

If California Favors Pot Legalization, the DOJ Should Sue

By |

Things are tough in California. An unrestrained state legislature has spent so irresponsibly that the state is continuously begging the rest of us to bail it out with federal tax dollars. Its credit rating literally makes it a riskier bet than Kazakhstan. It has placed so many burdensome ...

Koran Burning Hands Terrorists a Potent Propaganda Tool

By |

When I’m listening to two guys with guns--one a four-star general leading our troops in Afghanistan and the other a holster-packing freak who thinks he’s Abraham ready to sacrifice his own--I think I’ll go with the general.

Look, I’m from Florida. I’ve spent many a day in Gainesville. Insanity runs ...

Obama, Democrats Should Stop Trying to 'Help' the Economy

By |

I was told to get the hell out Washington, D.C., that it was no longer safe to be here. I was told that I couldn’t survive, that nobody could survive, that we are all doomed. I was told to run--run from here, run anywhere ... but that it didn’t matter. Nowhere is safe, we are all doomed.

Admittedly,

'The Tea Party' Is a Media Driven Frankenstein's Monster

By |

The Tea Party is dead. Long live the Tea Party.

The media—both the mainstream and blogosphere variations—have indulged a nearly hysterical and at times schizophrenic debate about whether the Tea Party's influence is dominating elections this year or is in gasping death rattles.

Check out this ABC ...

Pelosi Tells America to Shut Up on Ground Zero Mosque

By |

Nancy Pelosi had some choice words for the American public yesterday: Shut up.

If you’ve got an opinion about the N.Y. mosque controversy, better keep it to yourself or you could end up under investigation in the House Star Chamber. Pelosi says she wants to know how opposition to the mosque is being ...

Democrats Are Politicizing Homeland Security for the Fall Elections

By |

Back in 2006, before George W. Bush’s approval ratings dropped through the basement into somewhere around the fourth circle of hell, it made political sense for the Democrats to attack the Republican administration on cargo security. They were fighting to regain control of Congress and had to show ...

Imagining the Democrats' 2010 Election Strategy Meetings

By |

With Friday’s announcement that unemployment continues to stick at 9.5 percent, Democrats lurch toward the November elections under the weight of an ever-ballooning debt and a massive expansion of government--but few jobs. They’ve passed an unpopular overhaul of the healthcare system, they’ve ...

Anthony Weiner Rant Can't Hide Shameful Political Games

By |

While driving to work Friday morning, I was caught in the snarl created by Washington D.C.’s sadistic transportation managers who decided morning rush hour was the perfect time for construction on most routes into the city. As the line of cars started inching forward again, I was jolted from my ...
