By Doug Powers  •  July 20, 2011 09:25 PM

**Written by Doug Powers If you’re on the fence as far as an opinion on a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution, Steny Hoyer seems to be unwittingly trying to push you in the “pro” direction: (CNSNews.com) – House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D.-Md.) said on the House floor last night that if the balanced […]

Time Mag: Obama Hearts Reagan

By Doug Powers  •  January 27, 2011 04:23 PM

**Written by Doug Powers After Obama won the election in 2008, Time Magazine, noticing that “New Deal II: This Time It’s Personal” was about to be released nationally, rode the wave: What a difference two years, some horrendously expensive spending (sorry: “targeted investment”) shams and pork orgies accompanied by the inevitable high unemployment, a sputtering […]

Media Picks Up Latest White House Spin: Obama’s Humble… Just Like Reagan

By Doug Powers  •  December 26, 2010 05:13 PM

**Written by Doug Powers Yesterday, the New York Times, as a Christmas gift to those of us who enjoy laughing until pumpkin pie and egg nog shoots out our noses, published a piece about how President Obama has a natural penchant for humility: “I think it speaks volumes about the man’s temperament,” said Robert Dallek, […]

Hollywood Bringing ‘Reagan’ to the Big Screen; What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

By Doug Powers  •  September 8, 2010 09:38 AM

**Written by Doug Powers I thought for sure Oliver Stone would be the first to bring a film about Ronald Reagan to the big screen, but the fact that he’s not doesn’t mean the movie might not be Stone-esque in its approach to the movie: LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – The story of Ronald Reagan’s […]

Compare and contrast. Class warrior John McCain Edwards at last night’s GOP debate held at the Reagan Library (transcript): I think that we’ve got to return to the principle that you don’t lend money that can’t pay it back. I think that there’s some greedy people on Wall Street that perhaps need to be punished. […]

Another GOP Maalox moment

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 15, 2006 12:28 PM

Just when the MSM focus had fixed on the Democrats’ culture of corruption and business-as-usual, along come Beltway Republicans to remind us of how lame the GOP leadership is. Trent Lott is back.
