Obama vs. Liberalism

The conservative attitude toward Obama has largely been a mirror image of that of the left. To liberals, Obama is the ideal vision of Liberal Man — the Lightbringer, the new FDR in a darker shade,who will right all wrongs, set the U.S. firmly on a progressive path, and give out lots of free stuff […]

Barack Obama, Derelict

Derelict: (‘derəˌlikt/) neglectful of duty, delinquent; a person guilty of neglect of duty; a bum. SYNONYM-see Obama, Barack. A thought experiment can be useful to explain why America is in a mess. Let’s take Barack Obama at his word — a stretch certainly for anyone who would lie about his own mother’s death to score […]

Might the Establishment Turn Against Obama?

A disturbing trend among American conservatives is the increasing sense of optimism about President Obama’s slow fade in mainstream perceptions, and its ramifications for the future of American leftism.  Does Obama’s decline entail the undoing of the movement he represents?  Progressivism’s history reveals another option, which is that the movement will, in the name of saving itself, […]

Dangerous Times: Obama and the Crisis of Evil

The Atlantic, November 2, 2012: Obama’s Crystal-Clear Promise to Stop Iran From Getting a Nuclear Weapon. USA Today, October 25, 2013: Iran bomb one month away. The New Republic, March 2, 2012. “…never has an American president treated an Israeli prime minister with such shabbiness as Obama has treated Netanyahu.” Daily Blaze, November 8, 2013: […]

The Obama Purchase

Many years ago I knew a couple who adopted the habit of being gratuitously defensive about one another. If you made even the slightest comment questioning one of them in the other’s presence, that party would say something such as “Watch it!” The admonition, however, would lack a certain conviction. Not long after they were […]

Stick a Fork in Obama

We are only three and a quarter years away from transforming the United States of America.  We may never get back to where we once were, but we can sure roll back much of the mess Barack Obama has created through his misguided policies and serial incompetence.  With ObamaCare’s ascendancy and impending crash, America will […]

The Obama Facade Cracks at Last

Only now — five years into his presidency — are we seeing some cracks in the protective shield surrounding President Obama, and then only after the abuse of reporters’ privacy has been threatened. Mainstream journalists have not scrutinized his controversial policies, nor have they held him accountable for questionable actions that have caused outrage among […]

Dangerous Times: Is Rouhani Rolling Obama?

When Mullah Rouhani was smiling for the abject media in New York the other week, Obama got double-teamed but good. The President of the United States asked to meet Rouhani three different times and was refused three times. Then when the truck bomber of the U.S. Marine Barracks of 1984 flew back to Tehran, he […]

Obama in Wonderland

Many people criticize President Obama for spending too much time campaigning, traveling or on the golf course. They are wrong.  He spends too much time in a far more removed and unique place: Wonderland. Indeed, he seemingly lives in Wonderland. The problem is that the rest of us live in the real world. Over the […]

Is Obama Creating a Martial-law-ready Military?

See also: Bad Conduct — or Cover for Bad Morale? What kind of leader wants a military more loyal to himself than to the rule of law? And why? These are two questions to ponder when considering the strange happenings in the armed forces since Barack Obama took office. Let’s start with a hypothetical. Let’s […]
