Barney Frank Forced To Admit The Blindingly Obvious

Larry Kudlow got this out of Barney Frank: “I hope by next year we’ll have abolished Fannie and Freddie,” he said. Remarkable. And he went on to say that “it was a great mistake to push lower-income people into housing they couldn’t afford and couldn’t really handle once they had it.” He then added, “I had been too sanguine about Fannie … Read More

Jennifer Granholm’s Definition of “Success”

Jennifer Granholm is Awful

Her definition of success is apparently very similar to everyone else’s definition of failure. “This is the laboratory of the states right here,” she told NBC’s David Gregory. “And I can tell you what has worked. What has worked is the government smartly intervening to save the auto industry; smartly, strategically, surgically intervening to invest with the private sector to … Read More

Shirley Sharrod isn’t exactly clean and pure as the wind driven snow

I’ve been following the whole Andrew Breitbart vs. the NAACP/Obama Administration dustup involving the videotape of Shirley Sharrod of the USDA admitting to racial discrimination in carrying out her past duties before an audience at an NAACP event, and it’s just unpleasant.  Brietbart has a point, of course – Sharrod’s admissions of racism do garner murmurs of approval from the … Read More

It’s Simple: Obama and His Allies are Filthy Liars

Not a moderate.

This was obvious to many during the 2008 campaign, but unfortunately not the majority.  And now we have a massive health-care “reform” disaster, all based on misinformation, obfuscation, and (mostly) outright, bald-faced lying.  For instance, all throughout the process of shoving Obamacare through Congress, Obama and his cronies insisted repeatedly that the individual mandate did not represent a tax increase. … Read More

Sick of it all?

Smoke up, Barry.

Roger L. Simon: Ever since viewing his depressing and disconnected “energy” speech last week, I have been mulling whether Barack Obama actually wants to be president anymore. That was an address given by a man who looked very much like he didn’t want to be there, didn’t want to continue. He appeared slumped and worn, as if he aged eighteen years … Read More

You have got to be kidding me

Allahpundit: Video: Obama can’t explain why he hasn’t spoken to BP’s CEO He didn’t open a line of communication on day 1?  And he still hasn’t even talked with the guy?  Good lord.  This would be hilarious if it wasn’t so infuriating.

Just another lie to throw on top of the pile

Not a moderate.

PowerLine: The truth is that the federal government’s response to the spill was slow and flat-footed. Perhaps Obama’s worst misrepresentation related to the government’s use of fire booms: Now, when it comes to what’s happening on the surface, we’ve been much more involved in the in situ burns, in the skimming. Those have been happening more or less under our … Read More
