Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi questions Obama’s Honesty

      I really dislike the labels of conservative and liberal as the implication is that these are mutually exclusive political positions.  I just happen to think that most people are rarely one or the other exclusively, yet these labels tend to reduce everyone’s political philosophy into either camp.  Once forced into a camp, many of us tend to get somewhat defensive and lose the ability to critically analyze our own positions... Read More

West vs. Obama

I’ve been on a bit of hiatus from my blog, in part due to work and in part to just taking a bit of a break.  I rarely run out of things to say, but sometimes one has to do more listening and reading than “saying” and I find that’s good to do exclusively on occasion to gain some perspective. It looks like we’ve got a fight brewing between the president and  Princeton professor Cornell West over Obama’s credentials as a black... Read More

House Republicans Vow “No Compromise”

He agrees with the narrative that says the United States... Read More

Pat Buchanan: Is the War Coming Home?

I have very mixed feelings about Pat Buchanan bordering occasionally on intense dislike, but one can’t deny when someone speaks the truth and I’m in total agreement with his take below on the recent attempt to blow up Times Square.  He’s right, they’re over here because we’re over there and the question is what purpose is being served for us to be “over there”.  It surely has nothing to do with promoting and protecting our freedom.

Obama Meets With House Republicans

President Obama in a frank Q&A session with house republicans.  This is a bit of olive branch extending due to the recent reversal of fortune for the democrats in the Senate.  The video is lengthy but substantive. You’ll need about an hour to view. Effectively here, Obama is going into the lion’s den to take on the republicans and does a masterful job making his point in the back and forth with them.  There’s some campaign type rhetoric... Read More
