Keystone Legislation ‘Has Earned My Veto’

Keystone Legislation ‘Has Earned My Veto’ Keeping his promise, U.S. President Barack Obama vetoed legislation that would have expedited the approval of the Keystone XL pipeline. This is the third veto issued by Obama since he took office six years ago. Republicans in the House and Senate will now have to decide whether to attempt to override the veto. It appears...

Entitlements and Public Pensions- Still on Rocky Ground

In March of 1988, the cover and an essay in The New Republic depicted selfish “greedy geezers” draining America of resources that might be utilized in a more constructive fashion to provide growth and economic development. Funding of the entitlement programs Medicare and Social Security were leaving less money available to be spent on education and preschool activities, and the maintenance and expansion of the nation’s infrastructure....

The GOP’s self-deception

WASHINGTON — Republicans had better divert some of their campaign cash toward finding a cure for Obama Derangement Syndrome. If they don’t, their nemesis will beat them in a third consecutive presidential contest — without, of course, actually being on the ballot. GOP power brokers and potential candidates surely realize that President Obama is ineligible to run in 2016. Yet they seem unable to get over the fact that...

Government shutdown? Republicans ‘Stick To Their Guns’ On Funding Fight

Republicans ‘Stick To Their Guns’ On Funding Fight WASHINGTON — Congress is hurtling toward another government funding lapse with no sign of anyone hitting the brakes. As of Monday evening, the Department of Homeland Security’s funding was still scheduled to expire on Friday at midnight. To no one’s surprise, the Senate failed for the fourth time on Monday to clear a procedural hurdle...

Report: Bobby Jindal spent half of 2014 outside of Louisiana

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is by all accounts a highly intelligent and once-upon-a-time serious man — but he has turned into one of the most Twlight Zone-ish Republicans (but now looks almost moderate compared to former New York Mayor Rudy You-don’t-love-America-and-are-probably-not-a-Christian Giuliani. Now a report in The Advocate has come out that Jindal has spent half of 2014 outside of Louisiana. Running the state,...

One of the things which makes The Americans one of the top television shows now on is the manner in which several story lines involving different characters are carried out so well. Whether or not the different story lines become intertwined, one storyline often has lessons for another. On Dimebag, while Elizabeth and Phillip fought over whether Paige should become a spy, neither seemed to have thought that if Paige had been trained...

We would miss Obamacare

WASHINGTON — Will it take the repeal of the Affordable Care Act or its evisceration by the Supreme Court for us to appreciate what it’s actually done? Critics of the ACA are so insistent on pointing to the problems it has encountered — erroneous tax information to 800,000 taxpayers is the latest — that it was especially enlightening on Friday to talk with Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the secretary of Health and...

Rudy Giuliani Sort of Backtracks on Ugly Obama Comments

Rudy Giuliani is sort of backtracking after being blasted for saying President Obama doesn’t love America and questioning the way he was raised. He is now saying “I didn’t intend to question” Obama’s heart. Um, you think? Giuliani wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed, “My blunt language suggesting that the president doesn’t love America, nothwithstanding, I didn’t intend to question...

Awaiting Our Next George Washington

Awaiting Our Next George Washington By Tom Purcell “Boy, here’s something we could use more of today: unity among the American people. Americans are so divided.” “Maybe so, but we’ve been divided worse before.” “We were?” “Watch the History Channel series ‘Sons of Liberty.’ It dramatizes the heated arguments that took place among Colonial leaders, who had a lot to lose...

Conservative Blogger Erick Erickson: Obama Not a Christian in “Any Meaningful Way” (UPDATED)

Right wing stupidity heats up for the 2016 presidential election. Right wing blogger Erick Erickson tweeted, “I don’t think Barack Obama is a Christian. He certainly is not one in any meaningful way.” Um, so I guess by his standard Jesus wasn’t a “meaningful” Christian since he was all for helping the poor and the downtrodden. That’s quite the opposite of the Republican Party’s belief. They...

UPDATE: The Upcoming Battle for Mosul: Are We ‘Telegraphing’ Too Much?

UPDATE: Reactions to the Pentagon’s announcement of plans to retake Mosul have ranged from “so what,” to surprise to dismay and anger. Among the latter are the reactions by Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham who, according to the New York Times, sent “an angry letter” to President Obama arguing that the disclosures “not only risk the success of our mission, but could also cost the lives of U.S., Iraqi, and coalition forces.” The...

Jeb’s Bushian speech

WASHINGTON — Jeb Bush’s highly anticipated speech on foreign policy reminded me of the joke in which two senior citizens are complaining about a restaurant. “Terrible food at that place,” says one. “Yes,” says the other, “and such small portions!” Bush’s speech, which he gave Wednesday in Chicago, consisted of empty platitudes doled out in tight rations. Anyone who expected more...

The GOP’s Freudian moment

WASHINGTON — After he won re-election last November, soon-to-be Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made two sets of comments reflecting the dueling impulses of the Republican Mind. Freud fans might refer to the superego, aka the conscience, and the id. The Kentucky Republican got the most attention for gracious words to reporters the day after the election. “When the American people choose divided government, I...

Birther Alert: Rudy Giuliani Says Obama Doesn’t Love America

Rudy Giuliani is using that old, tired and failed line that President Obama doesn’t love America once again. Yes, we see where that got the Republican Party in 2008 and 2012 — Obama beat John McCain and later Mitt Romney by a landslide. Rudy Giuliani went straight for the jugular Wednesday night during a private group dinner here featuring Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker by openly questioning whether President Barack Obama...
