Speakers of note…

Sen.  Jeff Sessions did  a nice job  in the Senate this weekend,  and Rep. Marco Rubio did an  even better  one in the House.

Lest you forget the point,  this video  reminds you.

Wall St. hypocrites…

Charles Gasparino  reminds us  that the same people pretending to be such wise men now were running around with their hair on fire three years ago,  claiming that the world would end if they didn’t get bail-outs.   They also donated heavily to His Oneness,  purchasing a seat at the big table which has been very lucrative for them.

Debt debate upscaled…

leave a comment »

Charles Krauthammer is correct to point out that the debate is really about  the size and cost  of government.  I also can’t disagree with Joseph Lawler’s observation that we will get  a debt ceiling  increase of some sort and it won’t suit anyone who wants to cut spending and have an issue to upset the re-election campaign of His Oneness.   Yet a “clean” agreement would be  even worse  than what we’re likely to get.

Before the Senate took only  two hours  to kill the Boehner bill passed by the house Friday morning,  Sen. Mitch McConnell made a first-rate speech on  the Senate floor.

He wants more of this…

We have yet  another study  showing that government welfare doesn’t help the disadvantaged improve their situation.    Of course,  it has provided plenty of jobs for public union employees,  who show up secure in the knowledge that  their bosses don’t expect them to get a single family off welfare,  only to add more to it.  By that standard,  His Oneness is doing a hell of a job,  isn’t he?

That’s what Thomas Sowell  says about  the Boehner plan,  and when Sowell talks,  I listen.

Peter Kirsanow has  another question   for His Oneness.   I’d like it answered,  too.
