Dodd Doesn’t Miss A Beat

February 28, 2009
By

Do you have an ATM card? I do. And whenever I use an off network machine my bank pays any out of network fee. With Connecticut looking at going to debit cards for unemployment Dodd spotted an opportunity and jumped right in. But don't miss the item below this for a...

There’s More To America Than That

February 28, 2009
By

Two quality writers pen mostly obituaries for what it is we conceived of as America just last year.

Mark Steyn and Jonathan Kay – no doubt the work of Allah's hand in selecting headlines at Hot Air.

While it would be foolish to dismiss the impact of what's happening in Washington today, America remains more than what...

Pass The Ammunition

February 28, 2009
By

While there's still some left:

But what is causing our current ammunition shortages here in 2009?

Much of the demand comes from continued high law enforcement demand, the same demand that led to shortages two years ago. Police agencies around the nation have become more militarized in recent years and two trends within...

Saturday Broadcast: Busting The Oba-Myth

February 28, 2009
By

On his website and in his radio broadcast today Barack Obama claims to be ready for a fight and issues what amounts to a defense of his big spending budget. But does his defense really hold up? Let's look at the very few items he chose to highlight. One can reasonably assume...

That’s Not The CPAC I Thought I Knew

February 28, 2009
By

I guess the interview is fine enough. But the pic caption at bottom is kinda freaking me out, too. That isn't the CPAC I thought I knew. And, no, I didn't write it in.

Obama’s New Vetting Problem

February 28, 2009
By

It seems while Obama was giving the nod as vetter-in-chief to Gregory Craig, no one bothered to vet Craig himself. That via this Instapundit link.

White House general counsel Gregory Craig has seized control of Obama's vetting process after a series of nominees with unpaid taxes. But his wife's business may also...

Et Tu, Iowahawk?

February 28, 2009
By

Iowahawk has some uncharacteristically harsh, but typically well lubricated words for the Tea Party crowd.

Thanks to the new housing bailout plan, happy days are here again for America's sub-prime borrowing community — but Iowahawk's Dave Burge warns that national recovery is now threatened by deadbeat tax protesters who failed to...

The Tea Parties And Tech

February 28, 2009
By

The latest write up on the spread of Tea Parties across the Internet and America. h/t Instapundit.

Might it not be helpful to begin directing some of these protests at the field offices of DC...

TPM Beclowns Itself

February 27, 2009
By

Read this "new" scathing indicment of Bobby Jindal via TPM.

Jindal's Office Tries To Spin Katrina Story, Digs Itself In Deeper

It looks like Bobby Jindal's staff has been trying to do some damage limitation on that phony Katrina story — with some help from Politico. But it's blowing up in their faces.

Then...

Kudlow vs Dodd In 2010?

February 27, 2009
By

Well, that could be sweet to see and interesting to watch.

Republicans in Washington think they may have found their man to pick up a Senate seat in Connecticut in 2010….

In an interview yesterday, Mr. Kudlow confirmed to me that he did sit down for dinner with Senate Republican Campaign Committee Chairman...

Why Are Some Folks Afraid Of Tea Parties?

February 27, 2009
By

I remember when Rick pronounced the Iraq War lost and a humiliation for America. So this sort of thing from him doesn't really surprise me. It isn't hard to make the case to support his view on the Tea Party events.

When you get some money, organization, professionalism, and a little more realism, come...

We Told You So!

February 27, 2009
By

Larry Kudlow.

Noteworthy up here on Wall Street, a great many Obama supporters — especially hedge-fund types who voted for “change” — are becoming disillusioned with the performances of Obama and Treasury man Geithner.

There is a growing sense of buyer’s remorse.

Well then, do conservatives dare say: We told you so?

I believe ...

Your Tax Dollars Not At Work

February 27, 2009
By

I'm not against student loans. I used them and paid them back – on time. If anyone says this move is going to save taxpayer money, they're either daft, or simply lying to you. You're talking big dollars for education with more than enough of it being wasted with withdrawals and...

Final Battle?

February 27, 2009
By

The American military helped win WWII in significant part. It's fairly apparent that large portions of the newspaper industry ( including too many of which seem to have taken almost a dislike to our modern troops) are in a life and death business struggle of their own now. Will they win it? I...

Clint: Not Your Average Conservative Blogger

February 27, 2009
By

Pretty sad when it falls to a 79 year old actor and former Mayor to show more guts than many a conservative blogger when it comes to telling people who can't take a joke to stuff it. As if some party comprised of candy-assed conservatives is going to convince America it...

Stop With The CPAC Hand-wringing, Already

February 27, 2009
By

Not to single out Patterico, he's simply the latest and now in Hot Air headlines commenting on some of the humor flowing at CPAC.

Which gets laughter and plenty of clapping. This is great, because this is how we want Republicans portrayed to the country at large. I think it’s all very productive and...

Direct From The Congressional Cafeteria

As currently comprised and given the stimulus package, perhaps it is.

Pork Brains…. Could it be the worst … ever?
