The Government Husband

Posted: May 6, 2012 at 4:42 am   /   Politics

Paul Ryan is right that Julia portrait is “creepy” and “demeaning” As we noted on Friday, the Obama campaign has been tripping over itself a fair amount recently, and the “Life of Julia” may end up being like Obama’s Attack Watch website—an easily parodied misstep that reinforces stereotypes about Obama and his mode of governance.

Obama, meet Sophocles and Aeschylus

Posted: May 2, 2012 at 11:00 am   /   Elections, Politics

Earlier today, we pointed to a video from Veterans for a Stronger America that hits Obama—hard—on his excessive demonstration in the end zone celebrating the killing of Bin Laden. James Taranto had a great piece on the subject yesterday, which, as usual, had a pithy title: A Giant Leap for Richard Nixon Obama manages to […]

Obama and the UAW: How is any of this “fair”?

Posted: April 30, 2012 at 5:00 pm   /   Politics

Barack Obama and the left love to use the word “fairness” like a cudgel. But very little that they espouse has anything to do with actual fairness. For something to be fair, it must be “in accordance with the rules or standards; legitimate; just.” Treating people unequally under the laws is not “fair,” as it […]

Ordering a pizza in our near future

Posted: April 29, 2012 at 4:45 pm   /   Politics, Videos

The description calls this “the ACLU s version of ordering a pizza in the future.” I am assuming, based on that, that this was once an ACLU fundraising video, but the identifying information was edited out and the video was reposted. I would expect, as irritating as the ACLU can often be, that they would […]

Sen. Rubio establishes foreign policy stance

Posted: April 27, 2012 at 1:30 pm   /   Elections, Politics, Videos

In case you missed it, below are the video and transcript of Senator Marco Rubio’s much-anticipated talk on foreign policy delivered to the Brookings Institution on Wednesday. Some people are speculating that this is an audition for the role of vice president, in spite of Rubio’s numerous denials of interest in the nomination. Whether he […]

Romney vs. Obama videos: The optics matter

Posted: April 27, 2012 at 9:20 am   /   Politics, Videos

In the previous post, we talked about the Obama campaign’s overreach on the “dog wars,” and how team Obama risks elevating positive stories about Romney in the process of trying to damage him. Yes, they have the MSM on their side, but general impressions manage to slip through to the American people, in spite of […]

Romney saves drowning dog, missing teen

Posted: April 27, 2012 at 7:45 am   /   Elections, Politics

The political left gets a lot of cover and aid from the mainstream press. They can take an assault on fundamental religious liberty launched by the Obama administration and somehow turn it into a Republican-waged “War on Women.”  They can attempt to redefine marriage to include unions that it never before has, and when social […]

War Is Not the (Keynesian) Answer.

Posted: April 26, 2012 at 7:45 am   /   Politics

A colleague this morning hipped me to a short blog post from Reagan speechwriter Peter Robinson on the subject of Keynesian stimulus. The question at hand in a previous of his blog posts was whether WWII was an example of an instance in which Keynesian stimulus did actually work. After a long conversation with readers, […]

College students: stop asking us about our future plans

Posted: April 23, 2012 at 3:11 pm   /   Elections, Politics

Time is running out until colleges across the country fill their stadiums with the parents and families of graduates for commencement ceremonies.  Herds of students will pretend to listen as people who have already made it dispense platitudes about achievement, the future, and all sorts of other wonderful things. Sadly, after the celebrations are over, […]
