When assessing a Republican vice-presidential nominee? Fitness to be president is the first and necessary qualification. If Biden were the Republican vice-presidential nominee? Media outrage and indignation at the poor judgment of the presidential nominee, which would call…

And they have to make it as frightening as possible. From the Daily Caller [Emphasis mine]: President Barack Obama’s aides have poll-tested new phrases and themes for their “Mediscare” strategy, which seeks to persuade Medicare-reliant seniors to vote against Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in the critical swing-state of Florida. The Medicare reform plan…

From reader Shea: Another case of “shouldn’t have used that ‘O’ logo”… While not a state in risk of turning anything close to Blue, I saw this great sticker in the Salt Lake City area and felt compelled to snap a pic. You can also see a bit of the sticker on the bumper…

Via Scott Whitlock at Newsbusters: Over eight hours of broadcast time, Thursday, the network morning shows devoted a scant two minutes and 57 seconds to Wednesday’s shooting at the conservative Family Research Council (FRC). Good Morning America on ABC offered the most time, a still tiny two minutes and 22 seconds. But…

Is Joe Biden setting up health (or insanity) defense to renomination?

Posted by
8/16/2012 at 2:00pm
Joe Biden’s behavior is becoming more and more questionable.  Hardly a day passes in which Biden doesn’t say something really strange. The put “y’all back in chains” comment, saying he was in North Carolina when he actually was in Virginia, and forgetting which century we are in, are just the latest. While Obama…

Posted by

Elizabeth Warren is riding high, raising tens of millions of dollars and serving as the designated warm-up speaker for Bill Clinton at the Democratic National Convention in early September.  But she’s still an ethnic fraud who misappropriated Native American heritage as her own for professional purposes. The only question approaching the convention is whether…

This video has been making the rounds. It’s a 22-minute examination of the pattern of leaks of classified and sensitive information intended to make Obama and his administration look tough. How do you cut this down to 30 seconds so it can be run on television? I’m thinking take the minute that starts…

As long-time readers surely know, I have examined the pernicious methodology of the Southern Poverty Law Center in moving from fighting Klan and neo-Nazi groups to fighting for the Democratic Party agenda against conservatives and the Tea Party. In seeking to justify its hefty salaries, budget and fundraising, SPLC made a very…
