2012 Update

  1. USA Today reports that Americans are down on the economy and increasingly down on Obama. According to the article, 80% of Americans believe the economy is currently in a recession. Moreover, 60% believe that conditions will be either no better than they are now or worse in a year’s time.

    What does this mean for President Obama? According to USA Today, “For the first time since he took office, a majority of Americans —...

Obama’s Politics Of Division

Obama’s approval ratings are falling. His economic policies are failing. Liberals are furious and contemplating a primary challenge. Against this backdrop, Obama did what he often does — he resorted to attempting to distract and divide Americans by blaming our problems on the rich and suggesting that they aren’t paying their fair share.

Obama and his media allies are intent on making this election about punishing the...

Obama Can’t Get Enough Tax

Insatiable Obama was at it again this morning! He marched to the microphones in the White House Rose Garden and announced yet another tax on the prosperous. Beyond the seriously disingenuous rhetoric (such as the notion that there is a special, lower tax rate for the wealthy), Obama is demonstrating that he has no ideas that don’t include crass class warfare and tax hikes.

For example, the president’s signature legislative...

The Great Debate

Yesterday House Speaker John Boehner delivered an address before the Economic Club of Washington. In his remarks, Speaker Boehner reiterated the conservative view that the joint committee on deficit reduction should meet its goals by cutting spending and not by raising taxes. Here is an excerpt of Boehner’s remarks:

“Tax increases… are not a viable option for the Joint Committee. It’s a very simple equation.  Tax...

Democrat Disconnect

President Obama is stumping in key states pushing his American Jobs Act. At every stop, he lashes out at Republicans for refusing to pass his latest tax-hiking, big spending stimulus bill.

In Ohio earlier this week, Obama asked, “What on Earth are we waiting for?” In North Carolina yesterday, Obama suggested the poor economy was equivalent to a “national emergency” and urged his audience, “If you love me, you got to help me...

THIS JUST IN: President Obama continued campaigning for quick passage of his jobs bill today. In North Carolina, Obama mocked House Republicans for not wanting to give him a “victory.” But today Senate Democrats on Capitol Hill publicly broke ranks with the White House. Senator Jim Webb (D-VA) called Obama’s proposed tax increases “Terrible.” Senators Mary Landrieu (D-LA) and Tom Carper (D-DE) also expressed reservations about the bill. I will...

Obama Wants To Save A Job — His!

President Obama is hitting the campaign trail, going to the critical swing state of Ohio to sell his American Jobs Act. But a truth in labeling law would require the Administration to call the bill “Obama’s Job Act.” It has nothing to do with creating new jobs and everything to do with helping Obama save his job!

After claiming for days that the nearly $500 billion proposal is fully paid for, we’ve learned that...

Pass This Bill Now – NOT!

From Day One of his presidency, Barack Obama has expressed one consistent theme – he wants his proposals passed — NOW!! He demanded Congress act immediately on his stimulus bill. He insisted Obamacare be made law even before members of Congress could read it. And now with his new “jobs bill” he is demanding immediate action by Republicans because “America can’t wait.”

Oh, yes, we can wait. And, yes,...

Ponzi Scheme?
I received an avalanche of responses from you this morning on Rick Perry’s comments about social security. Virtually everyone agreed that the social security program has been looted by politicians and that, without reforms, it will be in trouble in the years ahead. Most of you felt the term “Ponzi scheme” was accurate. But nearly two-thirds of you thought that it was a tactical mistake to use rhetoric that can so easily be exploited by Obama, big media...

The Reagan Library Debate

Last night’s GOP debate was a more lively exchange than past gatherings. Perry and Romney threw a few elbows and all the candidates appeared well prepared. It was abundantly clear that any of those candidates would be better equipped to lead this nation than the current occupant of the Oval Office.

Newt Gingrich once again demonstrated his intellect and keen grasp of history. He rightly chastised the liberal moderators for trying to set traps...
