Obama Observes 30 Days of Silence on Egypt

No matter the disaster we know we can count on President Obama to be AWOL on leadership. As the images of a meltdown pour in from Cairo and all over Egypt, Obama plays the Nero card and fiddles around, hoping someone else will do something.

Obama Doubles Down On Auto Bailouts, Like He Did With Health Care, Stimulus, Drilling Moratorium

Recently, President Obama’s political strategy on policies that are problematic or controversial has been to double down instead of reevaluating or changing course.

Scott Brown, who campaigned […]

Should We Halt All Offshore Drilling Until Republicans Take Over Again?

Barack Obama has been in office 504 days and oil has been spewing into the Gulf with no end in sight. Now a second oil platform has begun to leak. This is what we call Trickle Down Incompetence.
