Enough is enough, they say. Via Fox News: Dozens of government watchdogs are sounding the alarm that the Obama administration is stonewalling them, in what is being described as an unprecedented challenge to the agencies they’re supposed to oversee. Forty-seven of the government’s 73 independent watchdogs known as inspectors general voiced their complaints in a letter […]

**Posted by Phineas That’s the unavoidable conclusion of a survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation, which, if I recall correctly, has been friendly towards the ACA. Byron York reports: According to new polling by the Kaiser Family Foundation, which has closely tracked Obamacare for years, 37 percent of those surveyed have a favorable view of […]

A fantastic column from Ron Christie in today’s Daily Beast regarding the disgusting racist attacks being waged by Democrats in Kentucky against former Secretary of Labor (and wife of KY Senator/Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell) Elaine Cho (hat tip): But Democrats who imagine racist slights and “dog whistles” at every turn would be wise to […]

 

QOTD: Obama “never had reporters eating out of his hand” sez former WH spox

It is to laugh, my dear readers. It is to laugh: So you think that President Obama’s rise stemmed in part from media favoritism?

I’ll be chuckling over this one for a while: Black Democrats in Congress are sharply criticizing their party’s leadership for supporting efforts to overturn the GOP-drawn congressional map in Florida and cut into Republicans’ House majority. Last week, Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) sent a sharply worded letter to Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman […]

It’s amazing how no longer being an elected official can free up people to tell the truth about their own side for a change: Former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) slammed the administration’s ObamaCare rollout, calling President Obama’s claim that people could keep their insurance plans under the law a “lie.” “The rollout was so bad, […]

 

Thanks to progressivism, we’ve lost the “War on Poverty”

Posted by: Phineas on August 1, 2014 at 7:10 pm » 3 Comments

**Posted by Phineas The War on Poverty was launched in 1964 under Lyndon Johnson with the best of intentions: through massive spending and extensive welfare programs, the government would eradicate poverty in America and make people self-sufficient. Like I said, a worthy goal. It has also been an utter failure. In 1964 we declared war on […]

I know 2016 Senate races are way off but this, my dear readers, is tantalizing for those of us whose top five Senate priorities include either politically neutralizing Reid or ousting him from office completely via the ballot box: Gov. Brian Sandoval leads Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid by 10 percentage points in a hypothetical […]
