Was This Rubio’s Fatal Sip?

Did Florida Senator Marco Rubio, a likely Republican contender for president in 2016, destroy his political career by taking a sip of water on national television? CNN and some of the other slavishly Democratic-liberal news outlets seem to think so – or at least hope so. Rubio was giving a speech rebutting President Obama’s State…

Are You on Obama’s Kill List?

Recently we’ve been hearing a lot about President Obama’s “kill list.” He has taken full charge of the effort to bump off anti-American terrorists in such hell holes as Pakistan. Probably, as Rick said in “Casablanca,” he is doing them a favor. Who wants to live in Pakistan if he can be up in heaven…

This Amendment Has Got to Go

Let’s face it, you of conservative persuasion, there is an early amendment to the Constitution that simply has to go in this modern day and age. It is an amendment that has permitted the commission of heinous acts and led to innumerable deaths.  It ought to be repealed. Let it go, guys. I am speaking,…

The Dimwits are Always with us

I don’t recall ever hearing the term “low-information voter” before this year, but I have been familiar with the concept for more than a half-century.

GOP Victory in 2016? It’s as Easy as R-U-B-I-O

I am getting sick of hearing Republicans moaning about how their party has grown out of touch and irrelevant, how President Obama’s narrow victory in the 2012 election demonstrates that the world has passed the GOP by, how the chances of a GOP victory in 2016 and even beyond are approximately zilch. It’s to be…

What’s So Great about Same-Sex Marriage?

After my first marriage broke up, I spent fourteen years as a bachelor in Manhattan before getting married again. Naturally, I made full use of this extraordinary opportunity. I dated numerous women, and in perhaps seven instances things went far enough that one party or the other started talking seriously about the possibility of getting…

What Rhymes with Mandate? Shmandate!

Obama-tax

What’s this hooey about Barack Obama winning a mandate to impose his economically destructive agenda on the American people? It’s understandable that the Democrats and their media lap dogs would try to propagate such hogwash, especially at a time when we are careening toward the so-called fiscal cliff — but must the more timid Republicans…

Could This Be Bye-bye Obama?

susan-rice

Political scandals come, and political scandals go, but they all smell the same. I am going to go way out on a limb here, and predict that President Obama will be forced to resign from office before the end of his second term, because of Benghazi-gate, just as one of his esteemed predecessors, Richard Nixon,…
