Why Does Obama Choose to Lead from Behind?

May 14th, 2015 Viewed 624 times

Charles Krauthammer illuminates two reasons:

Proposition one: We must “lead from behind” because U.S. relative power is declining.

Proposition two: We must lead from behind because we are reviled.

[The Obama Doctrine: Leading from behind]

What do you think?  How has it worked out thus far?

Will ObamaCare Ever Be Overturned?

April 9th, 2015 Viewed 983 times

I have no crystal ball, and though many out there have predicted that at one time or another ObamaCare might suffer a fatal blow for one reason or another, the fact is that it is still, by this writing, the law of the land.  There are features of this law that are not going away.  However, that doesn’t mean that there are serious issues with the law– issues that many believe should sink the law.

It’s Hard Not to Be a Hypocrite

April 6th, 2015 Viewed 865 times

Anyone listening to Sean Hannity on the radio the past few weeks will hear him rail on Hillary Clinton and other candidates for being “pro-women” but accepting money from Arab countries that do not have “modern” women’s rights.  Nicole Kidman’s commercials for a Arab airliner is roughly the same thing.

The problem is that it’s hard to be consistent on these issues because it’s very easy to compromise your beliefs for the right dollar figure.

Things like the Obama Administration closing down a unit targeting Adult obscenities claiming they don’t have the money to keep this going and that there might be higher priorities, it’s interesting that depending where the dollars and attention is, we can get all upset about something and yet when it really comes to committing to it, we’re less than enthusiastic.

It reminds me of the concept of actions speaking louder than words.

Is Trump Still a Birther?

If Donald Trump decides to run for President, will people remember his research on President Obama’s Birth Certificate, or that he wants to beat China more?

Soon, President Obama is Going To Wish that Romney Had Won

I often wondered just who would want to run for the office of President when they see the mess that the candidates have to go through.  Now, I wonder who would really want to be President today with the world looking ready to explode.

Domestically, there are 675,000+ signatures for people suggesting secession would be ideal to living in Obama’s America.  The Dow Jones is falling.  The fiscal cliff is approaching, and although both parties of Congress seem to be a little more compromising, they are still far apart on a deal.

And then the Middle East explodes, with battles between Israel and Palestine, with the rest of the Arab world getting ready to pounce.

Seems to me that it’s not a time I would like to be President of the United States—good thing I didn’t run!

Why I Didn’t Vote Goode and Voted for Romney

November 8th, 2012 Viewed 1137 times

flagI didn’t want either of them—Romney or Obama.  They were very much the same individual, once you got right down to it.  You see, I’m pretty realistic when it comes to elections.  I know that neither individual is really going to get what they want.  They are both going to get some of it, but they are also going to get whatever it is watered down.  On the major social issues, neither of them are really in a place to do any major change, regardless of whether they support it or not.

But on the issues that matter and which they do have control—wars, budgets, spending, etc.—both of them were roughly the same.  Yes, Pres. Obama will get us in more debt, but a Pres. Romney would have done the same thing, just on a smaller scale.

So, why, if I believe that, did I still vote for Romney?

If Obama Didn’t Fulfill Promises, Does that mean He Should Lose?

October 4th, 2012 Viewed 1231 times

In 2007, then candidate Obama won the election because he promised many things.  He talked about cutting the deficit, and how he would deal with a looming economic crisis.

When he became President, Obama told the country that we had to enact his stimulus programs, or else we would fall into a Great Depression. He also promised that with his programs we would not see below 8% unemployment.  Real unemployment, when you take into account the people that have stopped looking, is in the teens.

Is this enough to warrant someone else being President?

Romney is Going To Cancel Big Bird?!

October 4th, 2012 Viewed 1310 times

fire_big_birdTo hear the liberals tell it, Romney doesn’t think much of Big Bird—in fact, one could believe that he actually wants Sesame Street and all the other PBS shows off the air!  For the record, my children love Wild Kratts and Word Girl and it would seem that they are in danger too.

Except it’s not all as it appears.

Certainly, Romney did say this during the debate:

I’m sorry, Jim, I’m going to stop the subsidy to PBS. I’m going to stop other things. I like PBS, I love Big Bird. Actually like you, too. But I’m not going to—I’m not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for. That’s number one.

Was Denouncing the Video the Right Call?

September 22nd, 2012 Viewed 795 times

Over this past week, with all the Middle East unrest, President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton decided to produce a video to play in the Middle East basically saying, “though it was an American that made the video, it was not produced by the American government.”

Doesn’t this sound a little strange to you?  It’s finger pointing.  It almost seems anti-free speech.  It could be taken as “don’t kill us, kill him for making the video.”

Does that seem beneath the office of the President?

The other thing that bothers me here is that you know that the real problem is not this video.  I mean, these people just wait for anything they can find to justify the chaos they want to create.  There’s a deeper problem, highlighted by one poster I saw which stated that Islam was the best or only religion.

I think those in charge should spend more time trying to figure out what’s really going on in the Middle East and less time apologizing for some YouTube video.

I Don’t Care Who’s To Blame

September 13th, 2011 Viewed 1364 times

Things are going horribly wrong for the President.  The job numbers for the last month were stagnant.  The vacation that he took was constantly criticized for extravagance—and he didn’t even get to stay the entire time because of the hurricane.  His new jobs plan which looks a lot like his old jobs plan is dead on arrival.  And he still hasn’t gotten the message that this is his economy and he won’t be running against Bush is 2012.
