Our Humpty Dumpty President

| October 14, 2011

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 […]

“The Rich” vs “The Poor” – a thought experiment

| October 14, 2011

Imagine, if you will, that for every time Obama says or has said “the Rich must pay their Fair Share” — yes, he says it with capital letters — there was an instance of the Left’s favorite demon, Ronald Reagan, having said “the Poor must get off their asses and get to work.” Do you […]

The Unbearable Whiteness of Being Barack Obama

| September 28, 2011

[Go ahead, denounce me now.] So, Obama is having trouble with the Congressional Black Caucus… and, remarkably, with his poll numbers in the African American community. I thought about it for a while, and it occurs to me that the root cause of these problems may be deceptively simple: despite the color of his skin, […]

Iconography in Action

| September 15, 2011

A couple of years ago, Bill Whittle did an Afterburner video piece on the power of iconography. Do please (re)watch the whole thing. It would appear that Obama is now in real trouble… for indeed, someone has taken Bill’s advice. Spotted outside my dentist’s office yesterday: LOL, indeed. This is the first instance I’ve seen […]

When Black Conservatives Attack

| September 8, 2011

I used to — like, a dozen years ago, before blogs — occasionally drop by World Net Daily. I stopped a long time ago, and I don’t miss it; they’ve become (occasionally) as nutty as a fruitcake, though there are some serious folks who continue to contribute content there. Since I don’t visit WND anymore, […]

Contrary to what is popularly imagined about Barack Obama, I do not think he is exceptionally intelligent. In fact, I don’t think he’s even particularly bright. I’ll even go so far as to suggest that he might have only a mediocre intellect. What evidence is there for this alleged superior intellect? What makes anyone think […]

Apologist-in-Chief Finally Says ‘Enough’

| August 16, 2011

When he hasn’t been bowing to foreign leaders, he’s been apologizing to them. At long last, though, from Hot Air, we learn there is a line across which he will not go: Obama on bus tour: I’ll never apologize for being reasonable. He cannot apologize for being reasonable for precisely the same reason that I […]

Quote of the Day

Like a laser: See, when the President says “My Singular Focus” Is on Jobs.., that is best understood to read “My focus is on a singular job”. Smitty at The Other McCain

A simple experiment, or “Fun With Google”

| August 9, 2011

For a light bit of entertainment with my first cup of coffee of the day, I turned to Google. For some reason, I suspect none of those results is “himself.” It the president were to spend his free time playing one of the Call of Duty or Battlefield franchise games, his choice of primary weapon […]

Quote of the Day

| August 8, 2011

Downgraded: Indeed, it wouldn’t surprise me if, when the history of the Obama presidency is written, what occurred on Friday night will be seen as the point of no return, a moment from which Barack Obama will never fully recover. The reason is because the downgrading of our credit rating isn’t an isolated event; for […]
