Appropriate: A delayed economic speech on the delayed economic recovery

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 30, 2010 01:06 PM

Tick, tick, tick. I noted in an earlier post that President Obama’s economic address in the Rose Garden had been scheduled for 12:30pm Eastern. It is now past 1:00pm Eastern. Wonder what kind of tension there must have been on his economic team phone conference this morning? Reader @nicklaus on Twitter quips that the recovery […]

From reader Lynn S.: “I like this photo of Dear Leader on his daughter’s bike and wearing his mom jeans…Is he ringing the little bell to warn others on the paved trail?

Delaware and the GOP need fresh blood: Christine O’Donnell for Senate

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 30, 2010 10:23 AM

GOP 8-term incumbent Mike Castle a no-show at a recent Delaware voter forum. Conservative challenger Christine O’Donnell on the right. I’ve said it before and Republican voters need to hear it again: Entrenched incumbency is not an argument for more entrenched incumbency. Remember these cap-and-tax Republicans?

By Doug Powers  •  August 29, 2010 09:55 AM

**Written by Doug Powers The challenge: to trivialize this in order to dismiss it as irrelevant: No simple task. The best way dismiss the gathering is to make it into a racial issue (no big surprise). This requires proving it’s all about racism, but in order to do so, the media must wade into the […]

Cronyism of color strikes again (previous cases here). Former Congressional Black Caucus chairwoman Eddie Bernice Johnson is in hot water over CBC Foundation scholarship favoritism for her family and staff’s family in clear, direct violation of the foundation’s eligibility rules. The Dallas Morning News reports: Longtime Dallas congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson has awarded thousands of […]

Who Should Drive the Car?

By Doug Powers  •  August 28, 2010 05:01 PM

**Written by Doug Powers After a few weeks worth of President Obama’s endless “who would you rather have behind the wheel of the car” metaphors, this fits in fairly nicely: Unlike most of the motorcade’s rides across the island during the president’s vacation, which were choreographed to perfection by Secret Service agents and state police […]

By Doug Powers  •  August 27, 2010 03:51 PM

**Written by Doug Powers By way of Moonbattery, a sign spotted at the State Department: Van Helsing adds: The leftist criminals running the federal government are stealing literally $trillions from us, from our children, and from our grandchildren, and using nonsensical bailouts and pork-stuffed “stimulus” farces to pass out the loot among their corrupt cronies.
