Barack Obama is on another “it’s all Bush’s fault” tear again. This time, using the tired campaign theme of cleaning up Bush’s mess:

Another way of putting it is when, you know, I’m busy and Nancy busy with our mop cleaning up somebody else’s mess –- we don’t want somebody sitting back...

Driving political rivals from office or appointed positions has a long tradition. Indeed, that is what politics is all about.

Taking that fight into the private realm, whether someone’s private employment or private associations, however, is a tactic we are seeing with increasing frequency from the Obama administration and its supporters. Politics...

Anne Leary from Illinois blogs at Backyard Conservative. I’ve had a lot of contact with Anne, mostly because of my interest in the Rod Blagojevich fiasco last winter. Anne strikes me as a completely straight shooter.

Scrolling through the excellent TaxProf Blog reminded me of a fundamental dynamic in American politics. A large percentage of voters pay no federal income taxes: 47% Will Pay $0 Income Tax in 2009.

But that doesn’t tell the full story. For whom do these non-tax paying voters vote? There will be no...

During the 2008 campaign, there were serious concerns that al-Qaeda would attempt to disrupt the elections in the United States as it had disrupted the elections in Spain.

Warnings about the threat of terrorism gave prominent left-wing bloggers an excuse to accuse the McCain campaign of wanting a terrorist attack on U.S....

The increasingly hysterical use of the the race card by liberal columnists, bloggers and politicians reflects the last gasps of people who, being unable to win an argument on the merits, seek to end the argument.

While the false accusation of racism is not a new tactic, it has been refined by...

Hillary Had A Mandate For Mandates

If Hillary Clinton were President, things would be quite different. For one, Hillary would have a mandate for health care mandates, which are the key to Democratic health care restructuring.

Everyone focuses on the public option, but the public option is a mere necessary component of a system in which everyone is...

Good question, but it depends on what the meaning of “they” is. According to Keith Olbermann and Gene Robinson, the next White House official to be targeted for removal is Barack...

Scrolling through Doug Ross’ blog, Director Blue, reminded me of a name from the past who seems to have escaped mainstream media scrutiny, much less responsibility, for two of the largest fiascos in our recent history, the intelligence failures which led to 9/11 and the Fannie Mae credit crisis:

The political world looked bleak on April 29, 2009, just after Arlen Specter had announced that he was switching to the Democratic Party. The Democrats, understandably crowing, seemed to be unstoppable.

The current Democratic House bill on health care includes fines to force people to purchase health insurance, which is consistent with Barack Obama’s current position on mandates. This type of coercion, however, was criticized by Obama during the campaign, when he attacked Hillary Clinton’s health insurance plan because Hillary’s plan mandated...
