"Barack Obama of 2007 would be right down here with me arguing against this drone strike program if he were in the Senate," Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., declared in the course of his 13-hour Senate "talking filibuster," which delayed a confirmation vote for now-CIA chief John Brennan.
Poor, poor John McCain and Lindsey Graham. Here they were discussing new tax hikes and amnesty with Barack Obama over a sumptuous dinner and that rakish scamp Rand Paul made it impossible for them to enjoy the fine cuisine.
Not since the eminently forgettable and now justly forgotten Louis A. Johnson was chosen to dismantle the country's military budget after the Second World War -- just in time to leave this country woefully unprepared for the Korean one -- has a nominee for secretary of defense represented so clear and present a danger to the national security.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., says he doesn't think the nominations of Chuck Hagel to Defense Secretary and John Brennan to CIA Director should move forward until the White House answers some pressing questions on the consulate attack in Benghazi, Libya.
In case you were not sure how Chuck Hagel felt about Israel after his "Jewish lobby" comment.
It is neither "racist" nor "sexist"to question U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice's role in the Benghazi scandal. It is, however, almost entirely beside the point.
The only thing worse than losing in politics is quitting after a loss since the vast and great American sport of politics never stops, and increasingly doesn't even pause for the holidays.
"No pledge taker has voted for a tax increase."
Sen. Lindsey Graham criticizes Obama for incompetent handling of Benghazi on This Week with George Stephanopoulous.
Yikes, we're headed toward a fiscal cliff! It will crush the economy! Or so the media and politicians tell us. The "cliff" is a series of tax increases and budget cuts that automatically go into effect Jan. 1 unless Congress acts.
One of President Obama's national security boasts in the 2012 presidential election was that al Qaeda's ranks have been "decimated," they're "on the run," and "on the path to defeat." So when the evil, terrorist network built by Osama bin Laden destroyed the U.S. consulate in Libya and killed our ambassador and three other officials on Sept. 11, it sent a chilling message that, contrary to Obama's preposterous claim, al Qaeda's very much alive and capable of killing Americans with impunity on U.S. soil.
At his news conference Wednesday, President Barack Obama postured as the young Galahad striding out onto the schoolyard to stop a pair of bullies from beating up a girl.
