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...

2012 Update

For the second week in a row, Rasmussen’s generic 2012 poll finds likely voters favoring the Republican presidential candidate over Barack Obama by eight points. What makes this week’s poll encouraging is that the GOP candidate receives 49% – ever closer to the all-important 50% mark.

The Rasmussen poll clearly indicates that voters have lost hope in Obama and want a change. But how do the real candidates perform against Obama? In Rasmussen...

Summer’s over, school is in and the campaign begins. The end of the Obama era is approaching! I hope you are rested and ready for what is guaranteed to be a very rough ride. There was a lot of action this past week — not all of it good. In fact, much of it was downright ugly. Let’s jump in!

Big Labor Declares War — On Republicans

Labor Day is usually a holiday when Americans gather with friends and family for a time of fun and relaxation. Whether it...

2012 Update

  1. For the second time this week a poll finds Obama struggling in the critical swing state of Florida. According to the latest Mason-Dixon poll, just 41% of likely Sunshine State voters approve of Obama’s job performance, while 56% disapprove. And if the election were held today, Obama would lose the state 43% to 51% to Mitt Romney and 45% to 46% to Rick Perry. Obama narrowly edges out Michele Bachmann 46% to 44%.
  2. The left-wing group Democracy Corps...

Jobless Claims Up Again

Weekly claims for jobless benefits rose yet again last week, to 417,000. Economists had predicted an increase to 405,000. In addition, there was a separate report this week from the Labor Department finding that youth employment is at its lowest level in decades.

These numbers underscore the continued weakness in the economy and the anxiety felt in homes across...

2012 Update

  1. It’s official: The GOP presidential primary campaign has a new front-runner. Last week, Rasmussen released a poll that found Texas Governor Rick Perry leading the pack with 29%, to Mitt Romney’s 18%. Today, Gallup released a new poll with nearly identical results.

    In Gallup’s survey of Republican voters, Perry leads all declared candidates with 29%, to Romney’s 17%. Ron Paul is third with 13%, followed by Michele Bachmann at 10%. No...
