At the time Nancy Pelosi famously remarked that the Affordable Care Act would have to be passed before we knew what was in it, I didn’t realize that by “we,” she was including Barack Obama.

I should have guessed, though.  After all, this guy is as lazy as that kid who always tried to hide out in the eighth grade by sitting in the last seat in the back row, praying never to be called on.  It’s only right that it’s …

For nearly five years, I waited and wondered if anything would ever puncture the Teflon shell surrounding Obama.  Nothing seemed capable of even denting the fortress erected by the media, the DNC and all his henchmen in Congress.  The irony is that it was a weapon of his own making, the Affordable Care Act, that finally exploded the man and the manufactured myth.

I mean, when you consider all the things that had been successfully deflected, starting with the Stimulus and …

Only a stumblebum like Obama would think that signing an agreement with Iran that basically caves to an evil nation would be a good way to distract people from the catastrophe known as the Affordable Care Act.

Just because Obama can’t do two things at once – or even one thing if it requires anything beyond reading words off a Teleprompter – he assumes other people can’t recognize that he is as toxic on the world stage as he is domestically.

Because …

Because it’s been about 80 years since Will Rogers died in a plane crash, there are a lot of people who never heard of him even though he had been a major attraction in vaudeville, a movie star and a homespun columnist given to such observations as “The only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn’t get worse every time Congress meets.”

But, to be fair, as wise as he was, Mr. Rogers never heard of ObamaCare.  It’s also …

Barack Obama seems less and less like a president and more and more like a visitor from the spirit world.  He looks real enough, but wouldn’t an actual human being be embarrassed if he had to keep saying that he didn’t know about things that were happening right under his nose?  Can you even imagine being the commander-in-chief and claiming to be unaware of Operation Fast and Furious, electioneering at the IRS, and what took place at Benghazi, until you …

When people used to say “Only in America,” they intended it as praise, highlighting the promise that anyone – no matter his religion, his nation of origin or the circumstances into which he was born – could succeed in America beyond anyone’s expectation.  But when you see a Marxist slacker like Obama twice elected to the highest office in the land, the words take on a cynical connotation, and are definitely no longer a compliment.

Speaking of Obama, it recently occurred …

A lot of people are saying that ObamaCare is dead, thanks to its disastrous rollout and the embarrassingly low number of enrollees.  The line they’re using is either comparing it to putting toothpaste back in the tube or getting the genie back in the bottle.  But, frankly, when I look at it, the image that comes to mind has nothing to do with bottles or tubes, but, rather, involves a bodily orifice.

FDR gave us the New Deal, LBJ gave us …

I keep hearing that Obama’s poll numbers have never been worse, and I realize that as a conservative, I should be reveling in the news.  The reason I’m not as gleeful as I might be is because they remain so damn high.

For instance, a recent poll reported that whereas 52% of us think Obama is dishonest, 44% of us continue to believe in his veracity.  How is that possible?  The man spent the better part of four years telling us …

Liberals are always given to landing on the side of what they insist is science, whether the topic is Darwin’s Theory of Evolution versus Intelligent Design or man’s ability to control the weather.  That’s because they believe that scientists are, like themselves, much smarter than other people.

But the fact is that science, to put it as kindly as possible, is an imperfect science.  Scientists are, after all, people.  They are therefore as prone to being affected by greed, blind ambition …

When I contemplate the damage being done to America, it’s difficult for me to imagine that it’s the work of mere mortals.  Surely the Devil must have a hand in it.  That notion ties in to my suspicion that Scratch must be working day and night to expand Hell to make room for all the left-wingers who will be taking up residence over the next 30 or 40 years.  I suppose, if push comes to shove, he can always rent …
