I headed off to JFK Airport for my trip to Israel on Friday not long after Obama gave his surprise speech on the Florida jury verdict finding George Zimmerman not guilty of Second Degree Murder and Manslaughter in the killing of Trayvon Martin.

The presidential statement elevated the Martin case to a historic...

Politico hasn’t been this excited since Herman Cain.

Looking at the tweets from attendees at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner was nauseating enough.

Obama’s speech was fine, he had some good one liners and some cheap shots, but it certainly wasn’t the funniest speech ever:

Safe on Israeli soil, protected by the Iron Dome system from drone attack, Chuck rose up to challenge Obama:

How dare he! This is Our President you are talking about.

Also, I can’t wait for the warm welcome Chief Justice Roberts gets this time, now that he cast the deciding vote in favor of Obamacare.

I missed this when reading Obama’s inaugural speech (still haven’t listened to it).

I just heard Jonah Goldberg make reference to it on Special Report with Bret Baier.

Via Tom Ricks at Foreign Policy Blog, Obama’s 2nd inaugural address: ‘Peace in our time’? Really, Mr. President?

The WTF moment for me in Obama’s second inaugural...

Obama Inaugural Speech — Collectivist We

No need to watch Obama’s inaugural speech.

Text is here.

Same old, same old straw men, platitudes, and ode to big government and collectivism:

Through it all, we have never relinquished our skepticism of central authority, nor have we succumbed to the fiction that all society’s ills can be cured through government alone.  Our...

One of the things I missed today during my long drive was the White House calling the ad embedded below “repugnant and cowardly.”

I’ll tell you what else is regugnant and cowardly, a Presidential statement made by exploiting children on stage as a sympathy ploy meant to suggest that those...

My wife repeatedly promises to stop cursing at the television.

Completely unrelated to that, we didn’t watch the Obama press conference today.

Via Common Cents, you can watch it for me:

Mark Levin apparently watched it.  Protein Wisdom has the transcript of Levin’s comments.  Here’s the video:

Obama just had what was possibly the most insulting press event I’ve ever seen from a President — I’ll post the video when available, it will infuriate you.

He spiked the football, overtly insulted Republicans and Congress, and laughed that he is on the verge of getting what...

Obama gave a good speech tonight at the memorial service in Newtown, CT.  It was the type of appropriate speech we expect from any president in time of national tragedy.

But, as usual, some people need to make every Obama speech historic, in this case likening it to the Gettysburg Address...

Obama loves straw man arguments, known on the internets as being a shorter

The false choice between Obama’s position on an issue and some absurd extreme alternative is Obama’s way of framing most issues.

“Some say” we should have no government or similar ridiculousness is a typical Obama refrain in order to justify...
