    White House Wastes Time Attacking Heritage

    We appreciate that folks at the White House are not having a good day. It started when a liberal commentator on their favorite network called the President a vulgarity, and it has not gotten better. The debt ceiling speech that liberal pundit Chris Matthews fantasized would turn the president into … More

    Obama Blasts Private Jet Tax Breaks Included in His Own Stimulus

    The chief economic culprit of President Obama’s Wednesday press conference was undoubtedly “corporate jets.” He mentioned them on at least six occasions, each time offering their owners as an example of a group that should be paying more in taxes. “I think it’s only fair to ask an oil company … More

    Morning Bell: President Obama Plays Politics in Afghanistan

    The nation’s two highest-ranking military commanders have gone on record raising serious concerns about President Obama’s flawed plan to bring 33,000 troops home from Afghanistan by September 2012.

    Morning Bell: Unemployment Goes Up, Obama Declares Victory

    Unemployment in the United States increased again last month to 9.1 percent, with the Obama economy adding only 54,000 jobs—the fewest in eight months.

Not only did the President fail to address Congress for approval; he gave the American people little information about his goals … More

    Poland and Visa Waiver: Obama Gives Thumbs-Up

    President Obama’s trip to Poland last week offered a glimmer of hope regarding Poland’s potential membership in the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). The President not only endorsed the idea in conversations with Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski but then sent a letter to Congress the same day lending his support for … More

    Obama’s Gas Prices Picture Says All the Wrong Words

    The White House released an infographic entitled “The Obama Energy Agenda & Gas Prices” that highlights a number of facts with regards to domestic oil production, improved fuel efficiency, improved transportation fleet and a clean energy future. While a picture may say a thousand words, this graphic conveniently omits critical … More

    Morning Bell: Obama's Attack on Private Industry

    You might think that a U.S. company’s decision to expand its manufacturing facilities and create 1,000 new jobs here at home — rather than overseas — would be hailed by the Obama Administration as a step in the right direction, especially with nine percent unemployment. You’d be wrong. Instead, President Barack … More

    Obama Wants to Tax Us by the Mile

    Remember that Beatles song about the taxman? “If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street.” Well, that’s just about what the Transportation Secretary has proposed. Bad ideas never die in Washington. They don’t even fade away. As proof, see the third effort in the last two years by the … More
