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. [...]

“My God, He’s Still Talking!” Redux: Meltdown with Keith Olbermann, Part 30


Last week, Keith Olbermann infamously broke into MSNBC’s coverage of Scott Brown’s acceptance speech with the exclamation “My God, he’s still talking!”
Brown dared to talk for about 20 minutes to gathered supporters who had helped him pull off a historic victory, which changed the landscape of the nation politically.  To a large extent, we can [...]

State of the Union: What Obama didn’t say about Terrorism


With only a cursory mention of the war on terror, three things were conspicuous by their absence in last night’s State of the Union speech: Gitmo, Miranda, and the New York terror trials.
On January 22, 2009, just two days after being sworn in as the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama issued an [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Okay, maybe not a fancier “You lie,” but more refined, shall we say. I wonder if Maureen Dowd will hear an “unspoken ‘boy’ in the air” at the end of this one, due to the “history of racism” in Alito’s home state of — New Jersey.

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 [...]
