It’s not often I thank Think Progress, but thanks for this video interview of Allen West on the issue of Obama foreign policy in Libya and the Middle East.  Think Progress, with its videographer following West on his trip to Israel, figured they’d get good sound bites.  And they did!

Someone created a faux Paul Krugman Google+ account and posted the following:

People on twitter might be joking, but in all seriousness, we would see a bigger boost in spending and hence economic growth if the earthquake had done more damage.

The message sent out on Twitter (now removed) was picked up by ...

I was right about taking the debt deal

I was right when I said Republicans should take the debt deal, as bad as it was, because otherwise any negative consequences would provide Obama an excuse for his own failures.

And I was right.

Polling in the three weeks since the deal was announced has shown Obama in a perilous slide. ...

You doubted she would, after working for The Wall Street Journal in London.

But it is to be.

Mark your calendars for September 6.

When they say Boycott Divest and Sanction Israel, they don’t really mean it.  Those are just code words for Destroy Israel.

It’s close to over, as prosecutors have moved to dismiss the indictment finding the alleged victim to be truth-challenged:

When they moved Monday to drop the biggest case on  their docket, the woman was portrayed as its fatal weakness. She “has not been  truthful on matters great and small” and has an ability...

Taking from the windless to give to the windy

You know how much Obama loves windmills, and how overblown is the future of wind power.

In Britain they have been pushing wind power far harder and longer than we have, and it is turning into a fiasco of subsidies from the windless masses to the winded-gentry.

Makes sense.  Very good guy, but didn’t seem to have his heart in it.

Via ABC:

After much speculation and some pressure from fellow Republicans, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin and the House Budget Committee Chairman, says he is NOT running for President.

Obama’s broken clock foreign policy

I just listened to Obama’s statement on Libya, and while he didn’t spike the football, he’s pretty proud of himself.

And, if as it now appears Qaddafi is gone, and if what replaces him is not even worse, then Obama should be proud of himself.  But being right doesn’t make one’s policy...
