President Remembers that He’s President; Holds Press Conference

He’s using the bully pulpit on tax increases for the wealthy.  Cannot hold back this tide, guys.

First question right out of the gate: Petraeus and confidential information compromised?

Consider this your open thread on the Presidential Press Conference.  God knows when we’ll see another, if at all.

Please, please, please let secession come up…

Administration Expectations

I’m more interested in what happens after Inauguration Day than what happens on Election Day. As much as I want Obama out of office, I wonder how much it would really matter if he loses. My own sense is that his election is all about who is going to be holding the bag of shit when it finally breaks.

As I’ve said in another thread, I think Romney is going to win on Tuesday (assuming … Read more

Poll Fatigue

All of the Serious Conservative Blogs have been killing me with annoyed boredom over their obsession with polls. Not since high school have I given fewer fucks about the use for math. The only thing I can tell from pollsters like Rasmussen is that Romney is either going to win in a glorious landslide or suffer a heartbreaking but very close defeat.

For my part, I think Romney will win comfortably (for whatever that’s worth; … Read more

Flags of Our Fathers

You know, it never fails. Just when the Democrats have the Republicans on the ropes on the birth control thing, they remind us of just how stupid they can be:

An American flag with President Obama’s image in place of the stars flew over a Florida county’s Democrat headquarters long enough to enrage local veterans who called the altered banner “a disgrace.”

Lake County Democratic Party officials took down the flag, which flew just

Next Time, Mr. President, Just Bring A Fruit Basket

Why do the Obama’s hate the French? Could it be that since both have taken office, Sarkozy has acted more American and Obama has acted more French like?

Consensus might point to a giddy president, overseas, out of arm’s swing, just basking in the news that the leading GOP contenders are mud wrestling with each other, lending credence that Obama is always above the fray. But those that have been paying any attention at all … Read more

Wanted: BHO

Yeah, good luck with that:

[Some Majorca lawyer] lodged a written complaint at the International Criminal Court accusing the US president of breaching the Geneva Convention.

Navy Seals acting on Mr Obama’s orders shot the al-Qaeda leader dead on May 2 after storming his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

In his written complaint, the Majorca-based lawyer said bin Laden should have been “pursued, arrested, tried and convicted” on behalf of “the victims of some terrible and

War Powers? What War Powers?

I have emerged from my proposal hermitage. And in the time between now and the rapture (be sure to set your alarms!), I’m starting to wonder: does anyone give a shit about the law anymore?

President Obama may be on the brink of breaking the law.

At issue: The 1973 War Powers Act, which says if the president does not get congressional authorization 60 days after military action, the mission must stop within 30 days.

Transparency!

Or not:

The White House Press Office has refused to give the Boston Herald full access to President Obama’s Boston fund-raiser today, in e-mails objecting to the newspaper’s front page placement of a Mitt Romney op-ed, saying pool reporters are chosen based on whether they cover the news “fairly.”

“I tend to consider the degree to which papers have demonstrated to covering the White House regularly and fairly in determining local pool reporters,” White

Obama Punts On Oil

When I gassed up today, the price was $4 per gallon. We’re reaching price levels that, when the evil Bush was in office, were proof of some Cheney-led conspiracy.

It’s quite obvious what’s going on. The recessions is easing, which is driving up energy use. There is instability in the Middle East — well, there’s always instability in the MIddle East, but it’s been unstable even by their standards. You can read Ron Bailey hereRead more

Has Obama pissed off his leftists protectors in the MSM?

Well, the fact that another bunch of them got a dose of heavy shit from the WH and are now suddenly turning on him like hyenas, sure gives one that impression, but one has to wonder if this is just contrived shit to make the MSM look like it is tough on Obama and the donkeys. What’s the problem?

The hip, transparent and social media-loving Obama administration is showing its analog roots. And maybe
