Barack Obama has a daunting task come January 2011, after the forecasted Republican landslide in the mid-term elections. Whether establishment or Tea Party candidates, a conservative agenda is poised to take control. Obama will face two choices as Republicans mount their attack: to veto or not to veto.
Under pressure from a barrage of bad midterm-election polls, President Obama has gone on the campaign trail to blame Pres. George W. Bush for all our economic problems and to bash House Republican leader John Boehner as nothing more than a Bush retread.
Fidel Castro recently bestowed The Atlantic Magazine’s Jeffrey Goldberg with an exclusive interview. More than a mere exclusive, this is the first interview granted by the Stalinist dictator to an American reporter in 4 years. The MSM is absolutely agog with the catalogue of insights, woes and regrets bequeathed by the Cuban mass murderer to Goldberg.
With a tendentious, sneering speech in Cleveland this week, President Obama launched the fall campaign. The president who never stops campaigning even when he is denouncing the permanent campaign has only one way to actually signal his (dwindling) troops that he is summoning them to a particularly important political battle. When Barack Obama gets serious, he personalizes the attack and he raises the volume.
Young voter trends have fascinated me ever since the Obama-McCain bloodbath of 2008.
WASHINGTON -- President Obama's latest cooked-up economic plan calls for spending more than $50 billion on public works projects, raising taxes on small businesses, and a dubious package of tax credits that even his advisers say will not create new jobs anytime soon.
As the November 2nd election draws closer, it appears evident that the GOP will score a major victory.

When you spot the word "triage" in a political news story, you know someone is in trouble.
Americans, says Time magazine, are too dumb to appreciate the wonders of President Barack Obama's $787 billion "stimulus" package.

Joe Miller, the GOP’s newly-minted Alaska Senate nominee, has a delicate and arguably astute take on official Republican leadership and campaign arms.
Steve McQueen, the quirky movie actor, said he'd rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than in any city on the planet. Roger that, bro'.
Gen. Petraeus objected to the Quran-burning protest on the grounds that it could be used by radical jihadists to recruit Muslims to attack Americans. If the general's main objective is to hamper jihadist recruiting, may I respectfully suggest unconditional surrender?
President Obama calls his latest attempt to revive the economy a "Plan to Renew and Expand America's Roads, Railways and Runways." I'm calling it "The Mother of all Big Dig Boondoggles."
Established politicians turn to protest campaigns only after they've been disgraced, defeated and rejected by the mainstream.
It is ironic that the most boring contest ever played -- the Princeton-Yale game of 1881 -- helped make American football the world's greatest game.
No country in Europe, a continent many liberals often cite for its supposedly superior views on everything from government health care to high tax rates, grants automatic citizenship. The trend has been toward eliminating it in the few countries that grant it.
Perhaps the biggest problem with the economy right now is that businesses are so afraid of what the government will do that they're stockpiling cash instead of spending it.
Who would have believed that within a decade of 9/11, we'd have a president who believes, according to his own 2009 Cairo confession and creed, that it is part of his "responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear"?
The giveaway regarding presidential candidate Barack Obama's plans for America was his repeated use of the words "fundamentally transform."
e’ve become a culture both welcoming and deadly to people with disabilities.
It's been a rough year, politically, for the glass-ceiling smashers. Neither feminism nor the civil rights movement, which claimed credit a couple of years back for the golden gifts of Nancy Pelosi and, especially, Barack Obama, cannot have anticipated what their breakthrough moment in 2008 would lead to.
Imagine that you have a product whose price tag for decades rises faster than inflation. But people keep buying it because they're told that it will make them wealthier in the long run. Sound familiar?
President Obama and his team of White House advisors are wrong: no additional federal funding is needed to stimulate a federal construction boom that would launch job-creation in cities across the United States.
