Thune Claims "Obama Experiment Has Failed'

IN A SEARING CRITICISM, South Dakota Sen. John Thune likened the Obama administration to a science project gone wrong as he used the Republicans' weekly radio address to urge voters to back a new kind of change this November. "The Obama experiment has failed," Thune said in the address. With both parties shaping their closing arguments just ahead of the midterm elections, Thune charged that the health care changes and financial regulations and stimulus spending, all backed by Washington Democrats have not turned the economy around. "One of the Democrats' main responsibilities over the past two years was to improve...

US Presidency As Accumulative Error

David Swanson, author of Daybreak: Undoing the Imperial Presidency and Forming a More Perfect Union has written a chilling piece of commentary on the state of the American presidency.

The former Alaska governor was dressed in a stylish...

With Just Cause And Full Effect

I AM SUPPORTING only one organization to stop this president's healthcare program: the League of American Voters. And I am encouraging concerned Americans to funnel their support to the League as their main venue for donations with just cause and full effect. I believe the League has the most effective program to confront directly and stop Obama's ruthless and radicalized healthcare takeover plan. Obama is moving to ram through Congress his plan and all our resources need to be focused to stop him. Also read the League's urgent message below! Dear Supporter: n our last message, we warned that Obama...
