George Will and the Left’s Hypocrisy over Citizens United


With the SOTU already well-covered here at NewsReal, we will take a narrower focus. George Will’s column in today’s Washington Post must have been written before the President’s speech, but it delivers a stinging rebuke to one of Obama’s talking points, as well as the leftist media’s phony outrage over the recent Citizens United v.

Reality-Denial Obama-Style: The SOTU Address


Anyone who managed to watch even part of Obama’s first State of the Union address tonight got a taste of just how completely out-of-touch this president really is with the American people.  While we are suffering through what can credibly be said to be the worst economic downturn since the 1930s, he spoke of how [...]

After Brown victory, Obama struggles to control message – AP


With the president’s State of the Union address coming up on Wednesday, the White House appears to be struggling to find its feet.
