Peggy Noonan: The Obama Contradiction – WSJ.com


When you watch a president give a State of the Union Address on television, you’re always watching three people: the president at the podium, and the vice president and House speaker on the rise behind him. As a TV shot it’s awkward. The vice president and the speaker have been instructed by media professionals not […]

Obama, iPad, Jesus: Who is this King of the News?


The anticipation was palpable…what would he say? What would it do? Is this what we’ve been waiting for?  Experts surmised, pundits pontificated while the population pondered:  whither change?
He spoke…
For some, there was immediate disillusionment.  Others, compelled by loyalty to the “brand,” made excuses for lackluster delivery.  Who could blame them?  When hopes set [...]

Leftist Heads Explode Over Howard Zinn’s Death


The hatefulness of the Left knows no bounds when a conservative passes away, but when one of their own dies the hallowed halls of heaven are awaiting their savior as they glorify the beloved path he walked. And woe to him who dares question the idol of their worship. Bits of gray matter are clinging to [...]

State of the Union: “Woe to the People Whose Leader Has No Teacher”


Historically, State of the Union speeches leave no trace. Their impact on presidential approval ratings is nil. Their utility, therefore, is in what they reflect about the presidential character and the presidential course. Last night President Obama gave a speech that was at times quite eloquent, and on occasion rhetorically empty. But at all times […]

Nowhere Left to Turn
In my view, the problem for Obama is that no matter what he says, no one’s going to believe him — not the right, not the left, not the center. In a year in office has acquired a massive credibility problem, which is not helped by the way by his overexposure. Consider [...]

Era Of Big Government Rolls On and On


-
President Obama’s State of the Union address was a re-affirmation of the central role that he wants big federal government to play in our lives.  Sure, he claimed that he feels our pain, but his seventy minute speech renewed his call for final passage of his health care initiative with the same tired and discredited arguments that [...]

Chris Matthews: “I Forgot He Was Black Tonight”


Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC’s Hardball can get a little too excited over President Obama sometimes.  Tonight’s State of the Union was obviously one of those times.

“…I was trying to think about who he was tonight. And, it’s interesting he is post-racial, by all appearances. You know I forgot he was black tonight for an [...]

State of the Union Address: Lost Opportunity to Support Iranian People


President Obama understandably focused the vast majority of the State of the Union on domestic issues. As a national security specialist, though, I listened and waited to hear about the threats facing us as they are what I am best educated in. To my disappointment, President Obama again referred to the [...]
