It is amazing how this administration creates controversies because it expresses opinions without reading the documents on which the opinions are based. First, there was the AIG bonus controversy. The bonuses were authorized by the stimulus plan, which neither the administration nor Congress actually read before signing.

Michele Bachmann, the conservative Republican Congressman from Minnesota, has gotten into the heads of the left-wing blogosphere. Yesterday was the completely phony attack on Bachmann’s “armed and dangerous” comment, in which her metaphor for outrage was twisted into a supposed call to arms.

Today brings another twisted attack. Numerous blogs, including Swampland, ...

I was going to live blog the Obama press conference. But as it started, I changed course because there is a bigger issue here which became obvious with Obama’s lecturing opening statement.

With each passing day, each television appearance, each mass e-mail, each door-to-door solicitation, and each news conference, it becomes more...

Alex Knapp, who blogs for Outside The Beltway, is a self confessed Iraq war supporter, but of course, it’s not his fault. He was misled, tricked and fooled:

My thoughts as the interview progresses:

He says: Investment banking not like it was 20 years ago, when investment bankers only made 20 times what teachers made, not 200 times.

There is a peculiar, somewhat uniquely, Jewish phenomenon. It’s called worrying about what is “bad for the Jews.” Many have noted this phenomenon before, so I don’t claim originality here.
