OBAMA RIPS AMERICABy Lloyd Marcus (at American Thinker)

Question: When you squeeze an Orange, what comes out? Answer: Orange juice. Why? Because that’s what’s inside.

Obama is being squeezed by polls predicting a Republican landslide in November. Adding to Obama’s pressure is his lethargic base’s apathy about voting. So, what came out of our so-called, “post racial” president? Despicable, manipulative and evil race baiting….(article continues here)

Twin Towers exploding in fire on 9/11Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, August 14, 2010 at GatewayPundit

Democrats were frustrated today with Barack Obama’s radical stance on the Ground Zero Mosque. Obama supports a mosque at Ground Zero along with only 20% of voters. A vast majority of Americans do not want a victory mosque built near the former World Trade buildings.

Pelosi and ObamaCongressional Democrats think Americans want what they’re selling.

BY Gary Andres at The Weekly Standard
July 1, 2010

Most Americans want government to be less expensive, less intrusive, and more accountable. Yet despite the looming prospect of electoral dismemberment in November, the Democrats continue pushing a radical agenda: piling up debt and creating new entitlements, with crushing tax increases inevitably to follow. Why the evident lack of concern?

Perhaps they intend to cheat….(continue reading article here)

Christopher Caldwell has a really interesting and provocative piece in the new Weekly Standard (“The In-Flight Magazine of the O’Hare-Moline leg”). I need to digest it a bit more (and buy the Johnson & Kwak book), but it’s definitely worth reading. An excerpt: (continue reading here)

Associated Press LogoNovember looms like a specter for the Democrat Party; they dread the possibilities, while Republicans Hope for Change…

[By Lachlan Markay – Wed, 05/05/2010 at NewsBusters.com]

The Associated Press managed to report on yesterday’s primaries in North Carolina, Indiana, and Ohio while muddling the incontrovertibly disastrous results for Democrats in those states.
