POTUS

In What Campaign Are Not Apples and Oranges Both Fruits?

HE VOTING HABITS OF THE AMERICAN PUBLIC are hardly static, but stunningly dynamic. They must be won like territory in a hot war, but through persuasion—through explanation, argument, rhetoric, reason, the parsing of life itself sometimes. One must fight for ground; one must be bold; one must penetrate into hostile territory, awe the opposition, and seize what he holds dear. The one thing one should not and can not do effectively is to fight from a holding position. That is, and has been the anemic strategy of the GOP leadership for decades. As Sun Tzu put it, "If the enemy...

The Cult Of Disappointment

HOSE AMERICANS WHO VOTED FOR POTUS Obama have not walked away from him. Those who voted against him were never in the room. Those who voted against George Bush and Hank Paulson and the cranky, weary, predictably puckish John McCain are newly persuaded that there was no credible choice in 2008. The rookie or the train-wreck? Fourteen months later, it is more clear that the Obamanation crowd chose their idea of the UnBush, and instead what they got was an UnAware. POTUS does not register how much polling trouble his party is in. Those voters have now turned not into...


Obama Sows Mideast Whirlwind

Another timely exposé from Frank Gaffney, Jr.—an esteemed analyst for the Center for Security Policy, dated Jun 01, 2009. I received this letter warning us of those dire circumstances most of us who follow US foreign policy already realize, namely that the persistently barnstorming POTUS is boxing our own nation and our staunchest Middle East ally, Israel, into an impossible standard where self-defense is not about safety but about survival.

Read for yourself: ROM THIS VANTAGE POINT [Jerusalem], two events this week appear to be ominous straws in...


Joltin' Joe Biden Rides Again

ERE IT IS. We knew this gimme was coming down the pike, and it's a real spooker. Hear the unmistakable warning in a Joltin' Joe Biden's stump speech of a coming crisis once Obama is elected POTUS. "Mark my words," the jackass vice presidential nominee said at the Seattle fundraiser, "it will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don't remember anything else I said....


McCain Deals Obama A Face Card

ITH SO MUCH ON THE LINE, for America and the world, the debate that matters most right now is taking place in the United States Capitol—and I intend to join it. Senator Obama is doing the same. America should be proud of the bipartisanship we are seeing." A true leader spoke, when yesterday Obama was playing politics, and today, when Candidate McCain could have buried his opponent with a nod to the facts of Obama's latest absentee snarkyness as this financial crisis consumes everyone but the Chosen One himself, he once again takes the high road, dealing him a face...
