President Obama is a genius, or so we are told. We have nothing on which to base that except the word of people who would find a way to praise him if he held a press conference while throwing live puppies into a wood chipper. So forgive me if I dont swallow the hook on that line.

Jonathan Gruber, the MIT professor currently getting a dose of media scrutiny generally reserved for conservatives, said something you can hear daily in Washington, D.C.

Barack Obamas presidency has been an unmitigated disaster. The slowest economic recovery since World War II, an unemployment rate dropping more from people giving up hope than finding work, the rest of the world looking at American leadership on the world stage the way Michael Moore looks at a salad. You name it; its worse.

If you want to right the ship of state, how did you think that would work? Your one chosen candidate would somehow undo half a century of constitutional disregard in 20 minutes? Of course not. Its all going to be incremental. Nothing this big turns on a dime. But before it can get any better it has to stop getting worse.

In the late 1960s through the 1970s, there was a panic that the Earths population, if not controlled, would lead to mass food shortages, water shortages, death, wars and the end of civilization as it existed. But much like the global cooling movement during the same period, it was proven to be horribly, horribly wrong.

When it comes to lifes guarantees, theres death, taxes, death taxes, the tides, the Chicago Cubs not winning a World Series, and the race card being played by Democrats as an election approaches.

Monica Lewinsky re-entered public life this week. Actually, this is the first time she volunteered to enter the spotlight. Her first foray was involuntary and embarrassing. It also was her own fault. Well, hers and President Clintons

The Ebola outbreak has been a disaster in politics, but a boom for capitalism. Weird how that works, but it is how many things work.

Media people love to appoint people they like to positions of influence. Just look at Jon Stewart.

Tomorrow used to be called Columbus Day, but no more. Thanks to Seattle, its now Indigenous Peoples Day! Sound stupid? Thats only because it is.

Youve probably seen Bongino on cable news or heard him on various radio shows around the country; hes the medias go-to expert on security issues. And I can assure you he is the real deal on this.

The world is not yet in panic mode over the latest outbreak, but its close. Is it justified?

There is a ghost in the White House, a spirit disconnected from this world, whisking from room to room, past staff, uninterested in their conversations. Unfortunately for us, the ghost is the president of the United States.

Christianity is an easy target for progressives; it has a violent past and a central boogeyman the Vatican.

Ive never been one for spiritteam or school. I went to Wayne State University in Detroit, and I had to Google what the team nickname was. It used to be the Tartars, not just a sauce but an ancient tribe. But it apparently was changed in 1999 to Warriors.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but thats becoming less and less likely.

We hear where she goes. We hear what she wears. We hear how much she makes. But what we dont ever seem to hear about Hillary Clinton is what she would do as president. Her every move is reported, every speech covered as if it were a decree brought down from a mountaintop. But what does she want to do?
