Obama's election is inconceivable without first understanding the historic wrongs the country has foisted on a community that has never enjoyed the protection a family can give them.

If anything in life is certain it is this: When Obama wages war on anything, including war, we ought to expect a mass casualty event at this point.

In the contest to run America for the foreseeable future, the Democrats have so mismanaged and bungled their chance to make a case for themselves that their only choice is to criminalize the opposition.

Self immolation is the last resort of those who have no other voice.

What if we had a president who has some gonads and some sense of proportion?

Brooke, like the rest of his generation, went to war singing about hope. And all he got for his trouble was change; change he would not have recognized, nor likely approved of, had he lived.

The man who once race-baited by pretending that Trayvon Martin was his own son, now dead and gone, is definitely the father of this version of our country. The likeness and resemblance is too striking for him not to be.

If Obama-- and Kerry and Curly—have something to offer in the Middle East besides an apocalypse now and more apocalypse later and even more apocalypse later still, they should cut the vaudeville routine.

I’m going to be straight with you: If I were a black male in America I’d be a radical, I’d be angry, I’d be striking back.

Only a true liberal would could come up with a plan to minimize the damage done to the economy by the expiration of $500 billion in tax cuts by raising taxes another $1.6 TRILLION, including $600 billion on ordinary, middle class Americans.

Re-election returns aside, Obama is still much more mouth than magic.

This White House might consist of the only humans in existence who have mastered the art of not even reading the words they write and read aloud-- if one can judge from intel talking points, laws they’ve written, treaties they negotiate, and speeches the teleprompter gives.

There ought to be a rule that once a group avows “Death to Israel” or “Death to the United States” that we treat the threat at least as serious as we would a pair of tweezers found in an old lady’s carry-on bag.

Hey IRS: The money in our economy is NOT the government’s money. It’s ours. Meaning mine and NOT yours.

We still have a president who said that he means to be the president to end all wars. And Europe, not to say the European parts of the United States, fell down on their knees in rapturous enthusiasm for him.

Be careful: They’ll sic the IRS on you. Or the NSA. Or the FBI. Or any one of a number of public security forces now operating within the federal government.

It takes a lot of guts for the president of the United States to send kids off to die. Look how much trouble Obama-- a silly excuse for a president-- had in sending the Seals in to kill Bin Laden: a no-brainer if there ever was one.

The press will cover the good news adequately, while the press will cover-up the bad news adequately, too. It's all the same, after all. It's helping Obama, the only economy anyone should care about.

We can’t fix Social Security; we can only destroy the myths surrounding it before those myths destroy us. Because if we continue to drift in this way, one day a group of people will assemble, like they did in the old Soviet Union, and demand by force the justice that government denied them economically.
