President Obama may be a lame duck, but the press never tires of celebrating him as the first black president. They ran President Bush’s poll ratings into the ground as his term ended, but here in Black History Month, they are promoting Obama like it’s still 2009. On “NBC Nightly News,” anchor Kate Snow played […]

Posted: February 23, 2016 at 4:53 am   /   Politics

(Scott Johnson) The rise of sea levels is an important article in the creed formerly known as global warming. You may recall that our lord and master Barack Obama promised that we would remember his own rise, not as the harbinger of constitutional destruction and one-man rule, but rather as “as the moment when the […]

Posted: February 22, 2016 at 4:38 am   /   Politics

(Scott Johnson) While it is difficult to date the onset precisely, I think we entered the Esposito phase of the Obama presidency within the past few years. It is the phase in which Barack Obama’s barking leftist mania for rule by decree became manifest. In late 2014, for example, The Hill took a look back […]

(Paul Mirengoff) More than 3,500 days after the fact, President Obama claims he regrets filibustering the nomination of Justice Alito to the Supreme Court. To be more precise, White House press secretary Josh Ernest makes this claim on Obama’s behalf. Obama himself has made no such public statement. Instead, as Scott notes, he has tried […]

Confirmation Bias

Posted: February 17, 2016 at 11:24 am   /   Politics

(Steven Hayward) A lot of people think Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made a mistake in saying that any Obama Supreme Court nominee wouldn’t even get a hearing, let alone a vote, but I think he was perhaps very canny. Knowing Obama’s ideology, he might have been deliberately provoking Obama, as Paul suggested over the […]

Echoing a favorite talking point of Hillary Clinton and the DNC, Obama asserted that Donald Trump merely expresses in “more interesting ways” the views of the GOP field […]
