Pence hits the right notes…

leave a comment »

The lede in  this piece  sums it all up so well.   I can’t claim to actually be happy about voting for Donald Trump,  but his selection of Pence as his VP makes me feel a bit better.

Public apology game…

leave a comment »

I could not agree more with Karol Markowicz  regarding  the pathetic  —  and veering towards dangerous  —  overuse of the calls for public apology.  I’m sick of politicians employing it to score points,  of Hollywood elites trying to gain public sympathy with it,  and a host of others trotting it out to avoid answering or asking tough questions.

If you have something for which you need to apologize,  say you’re sorry,  sincerely,  right the wrong,  then shut up about it.   Most people demanding an apology are themselves guilty of doing many things for which they should apologize.   Hillary Clinton springs to mind here.   Others,  like Barack Obama,  are guilty of apologizing without cause.   Of course,  His Oneness was apologizing to the world for America, instead of apologizing to Americans and the world for having failed utterly as a president on every front.   All irritate me equally at this point.   Grow up,  people!

Santa Bush, Scrooge Obama…

leave a comment »

For the eight years of his presidency,  the family of George W. Bush never went further than Camp David during the Christmas season,  until the day AFTER Christmas,  thereby allowing Secret Service,  White House staff,  journalists,  and others to spend Christmas Day with their families.

Every year the Obama family jets off to Hawaii well before Christmas,  so Christmas with family and friends is out for many of those people.  The Obamas feel so entitled that they need not be considerate of others,  which is why they are so often late for events.   The Bush family was rarely late for anything at all,  and this is but one example of the consideration  they showed for the people whose lives were affected by their travels.

Class does indeed tell,  and if historians are truthful,  the Obama Administration will be known as one of power and cunning and ruthlessness and corruption,  but utterly bereft of class.

Carter beats cancer…

leave a comment »

I suppose I should be glad that Pres. Jimmy Carter  appears to  have beaten his brain cancer,  but the truth is that I care very little.    He was a horrible president,  and a rather miserable excuse for a man,  very intelligent,  but full of petty insecurities and spitefulness.    Yes,  he has done a lot of good work for Habitat for Humanity,  but he had a great deal to make up for because of his failed presidency.

The current occupant of the Oval Office can not live long enough to atone for the damage he causes daily,  nor will he find a charitable cause he considers worthy enough of his time and effort.   I imagine he is busy studying how Bill and Hillary set up the Clinton Foundation so that he can create a similar slush fund for his own family.   With that in mind,  the United Nations should prove a fertile hunting ground for him,  since it is already a bastion of corruption and cronyism.

Remember when…

Deval Patrick was going to be the new Barack Obama?   Well,  he became Governor of Massachusetts,  and it turns out he  is just  like His Oneness,  secretive, obstructionist,  and corrupt.

W now more popular…

leave a comment »

The  approval numbers  of His Oneness  have fallen  drastically.   He’s even less popular than George W. Bush,  an event I’m sure he never considered even a remote possibility.   Mr. Obama is now officially the least popular living president,  which must please Jimmy Carter.

Romney beats Obama…

leave a comment »

Mitt Romney  has beaten  His Oneness in the NCAA basketball bracket this year,  and by a huge margin.   I doubt I’m the only one finding this quite satisfying,  especially since Obama holds himself out to be such a basketball expert.   I only wish I could have run this headline after the last presidential election.   Our nation — and the world —  would be so much better off.
