I have an amazing bottle of scotch. The Macallan Cask Strength. That’d be 120.2 proof, to you mere mortals. Wake me up in four years. In the immortal words of Glenn Reynolds, the Instapundit: If Obama wins, I’ll be as gracious and generous as the Democrats were in 2000 and 2004.

Team Obama is showing signs of desperation, and the blamecasting has already begun. First target? Rather surprisingly, it’s Bill Clinton. [T]here is one crucial way in which the 42nd president may not have served the 44th quite as well. In these final weeks before the election, Mr. Clinton’s expert advice about how to beat Mitt [...]

By now you’ve no doubt seen the latest Obama ego stroke: Now obviously Obama didn’t come up with this design himself; for starters, he’s neither clever nor creative enough to do so. But the people who did design the flag obviously know their target audience: Obama himself. Voters? Secondary, at most. When your customer is [...]

So basically, from his own mouth Obama outs himself as a collectivist douchebag… again. I am surprised only by the shamelessness of it.

It’s been pretty well settled that Barack Obama was in fact born in Hawaii. If nothing else, the contemporaneous newspaper announcements ought to have resolved the matter. But now to stir the pot comes this: Obama’s Literary Agent in 1991 Booklet: ‘Born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii’ Breitbart News has obtained a [...]

I am sick to death of Obama’s order to roll out SEAL Team Six to take out Osama bin Laden being praised as a “bold decision,” or more commonly and tritely, a “gutsy call.” Not to put too fine a point on it: bullshit. Any president who had the intel and tactical assets at hand, [...]

I learned about the three branches of government and the separation of powers in elementary school. Later, I learned about Marbury v. Madison in my first high school U.S. History class. Obama is only a year older than I am, so presumably his primary and secondary education was comparable to mine. How, then, did he [...]

The Washington Post’s Michael Gerson, discussing the Obama administration’s abrogation of religious liberty: The implications of Obama’s power grab go further than contraception and will provoke opposition beyond Catholicism. Christian colleges and universities of various denominations will resist providing insurance coverage for abortifacients. And the astounding ambition of this federal precedent will soon be apparent [...]

Iowahawk: Teddy Roosevelt charged San Juan Hill. Barack Obama charged $4 trillion to my kids. on Twitter.

Apropos of my previous post, yes, I really do think Obama speaks in capital letters; doing so allows him — as with, for instance, the title of a piece of legislation — to apply whatever meaning he wants. “Rich” doesn’t necessarily mean “rich”; “Fair Share” most assuredly doesn’t mean “fair share.” “When I use a [...]
