Remember Rebekah Erler, President Obama’s premiere “everywoman” success story from last night’s State of the Union address? The one whose family inspired the leader of the free world to stand up for the common man by…raising their taxes, or something?
As it turns out, Rebekah isn’t just an inspiration. She’s an operative.
Rebekah has been used before by the White House to tout its controversial fiscal policies. Last summer, President Obama spent a well-publicized day with her, taking in “real America” and picking up talking points about the excessively nice people up in Minnesota.
Though all of this, the White House failed to mention one important detail: Rebekah is a former Democratic campaign...
In last night’s State of the Union address, President Obama made a lot of promises. From free community college, to middle class tax breaks, to massive tax hikes on the wealthy and investors, the President served up a bill of goods that, given a Republican-controlled Congress, will take a miracle to...

Congressman Paul Ryan appeared on FOX News after the state of the union and spoke to Bret Baier. His reaction? “A liberal speech by a liberal president.”
Senator Rand Paul was on the Megyn Kelly show a little later. His reaction? “I heard about a lot of...

After the State of the Union address comes to a close, tune in HERE for a live stream of the Republican Response, delivered by Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA):
When President Obama walks into the House chamber tonight to deliver the State of the Union address, most in attendance will already know exactly which policy items he has chosen as his priorities for...
Next week, President Obama will stand before a joint session of Congress and deliver remarks on the state of the union—and he’s bringing some friends along for the ride.
From the President’s weekly address cum SOTU preview:
“Every day, we get thousands of letters and emails at...
Byron York remarks on one of the more remarkable aspects of Obama’s post-election press conference, the notion that those who did not vote have given him a mandate:
President Obama did something extraordinary, perhaps unprecedented, in his post-election news conference Wednesday: He claimed a mandate on behalf of voters who didn’t vote.

Obama addressing the tomb of the unknown voter:...
President Obama just gave a live statement from Martha’s Vineyard on the beheading of journalist James Foley.
He condemned the murder, insisted that it was not representative of Islam as many of ISIS’ victims are Muslim, and called to vigilence.
We keep hearing that Obama has checked out and is no longer interested in being president.
But was he ever especially interested in the work of being president? From the very start, what seemed to interest him was giving speeches and campaigning.
For the rest, he appeared to believe that...
What a nightmare Ferguson has become. Five days after the fatal shooting of unarmed teen, Michael Brown, and there’s still no consensus as to what actually happened. If you’re just jumping into this story, check out previous posts here and here.

John Boehner asks the question today (via Drudge):
Here is the answer:
Even the Washington Post seems to have noticed lately that Obama has been attacking a host of strawmen.
And the WaPo is not alone; the NY Times suggested something similar when it wrote, as part of its editorial about Obama’s West Point speech: “In some ways, that was a straw-man argument…”
Today is a travel and meeting day for me.
Have we reached peak strawman…???
I have been an Obama straw man afficionado for years.
