With a few exceptions, foremost among them the New York Post, the coverage of OWS protests compared to the coverage of tea-party protests is the worst media double standard in recent history.
Last July one of America’s biggest TV networks craved to interview Senator Marco Rubio.
...yes, you're elected to "work together." Wait, for what? Not the good of the country, apparently, which includes jobs.
Given her prominent role as a top party spokesperson, fundraiser and cheerleader, some of Wasserman Schultz’s critics may forget that she simultaneously wears another hat: Three-term Congresswoman from Florida’s 20th Congressional District. Karen Harrington wants to strip DWS of that title in 2012.
It's amazing how quiet liberals have become recently in defense of Obama. This was another "big speech" week, but we had no liberals out there defending the president. I don't know. Maybe as his own chief of staff, Bill Daley said, sometimes there is no defending the indefensible.
Maybe that’s why Obama’s so bad at investment choices. Obama’s spending money on investments in more stuff that doesn’t work with one hand while he’s killing jobs with regulations that don’t work on the other. He should really just try stopping both. Or alternately someone could stop him.
Here are some simple facts that are far too complicated for a PhD like Fed chairman Ben Bernanke to figure out.
Because President Obama would really rather not be held accountable for the low rate of employment that has come to characterize the U.S. economy under his presidency (see the chart below for the period since 01/09), it is likely that he will point to two of his favorite union-approved economic bogeymen in another attempt to avoid having the focus of blame fall upon himself: banks "that won't lend" and businesses "that hoard cash."
The Zambada legal team’s July 29 motion caused quite a stir by claiming that the U.S. government had cut a deal with the Sinaloa Federation via the group’s lawyer, Humberto Loya Castro, in which El Chapo and El Mayo would provide intelligence to the U.S. government regarding rival cartels. In exchange, the U.S. government would not interfere in Sinaloa’s drug trafficking.
The recent Jimmy Hoffa expletives towards the Tea Party have spawned a new mantra on Facebook: Don’t use UPS because they hire Teamsters. Use FedEx which doesn’t use union workers.
I guess zero job growth and a 9 point whatever-it-is-today unemployment rate is considered recovery at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. I and most people I know would consider that hovering somewhere between anemic and oh-my-god-we’re-all-going-to-die status.
At this point, for all its mistakes and errors — common to all wars — the United States has achieved its primary mission. There have been no more concerted terrorist attacks against the United States. Now it is time to resume history.
If my staunch Democratic family, friends, and leaders of bygone days were alive to see how their party has been hijacked by Barack Obama, Maxine Waters, James Hoffa, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, they would be truly appalled.
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney joined me in Las Vegas yesterday to discuss his new jobs and economic plan. He also shared some thoughts on his new Republican rival, Texas Governor Rick Perry.
