It’s the mother of all boners. Barack Obama gambled the future of the US oil supply on Brazil.
He lost. China kicked his butt.
In March Barack Obama put on his best groveling suit (you know, the same one he wore when genuflecting to the Saudi King) and went off to Brazil looking for foreign oil.
Barack Obama has unveiled a crisp, fresh and new campaign theme.
President Obama has devised a new strategy for dealing with troubling economic developments: Showcase optimism about turning around the economy while reassuring voters that although he understands their fears he isn’t directly responsible for their pain.
Last week Barack Obama visited a wind turbine plant in Pennsylvania touting his goals for clean and secure energy. There are times I simply cannot fathom what passes for thought in Obama’s mind and this was one of them. While there, he said

He could carry on the UN legacy of uselessness and failure and likely scoop up another Nobel Peace Prize for achieving nothing, to bookend his first Nobel Peace Prize for achieving nothing.
And you’ll never guess who got one.
The Obama adminstration has issued over 700 waivers granting employers exemptions from participating in Obamacare. Among them is the SEIU, which lobbied hard to have Obamacare implemented so health care costs would be lowered. Now SEIU is exempt because complying with the new cost-lowering law would be too expensive. The SEIU contributed $28 million to the Obama campaign but has no money for Obamacare compliance.
The plot of the movie Logan’s Run has been summarized by one writer in this manner: In the 23rd century, the survivors of a holocaust now lives within a domed city that is sealed off from the outside world. In … Continue reading

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste” This is the kind of stuff that makes you believe in conspiracies. It could be said that Sen. Chuck Schumer catalyzed the banking crisis when he publicly badmouthed IndyMac and … Continue reading
