PRESIDENT OBAMA\’S PRIORITIES

The Middle East is exploding. Next month, Benjamin Netanyahu – Prime Minister of Israel, which is an epicenter of the Middle East – will visit the United States.  During that visit, he has been asked, by Speaker of the House John Boehner, to address a joint session of congress. But Mr. Netanyahu has not been invited to the White House.  And President Obama – in...

IS THIS THE REAL REASON OBAMA WILL NOT MEET WITH NETANYAHU?

As you may be aware, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been invited by Speaker of the House John Boehner to address a joint session of congress in March. As you may also be aware, President Obama has declined to meet with Mr. Netanyahu.  The ostensible reasons are that Speaker Boehner breached protocol when he bypassed the President and did the inviting on his own…and that...

THE STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH

What do you do when you, and your ideas, get massacred in a national election? Well, if you\’re Barack Obama, you just ignore what the people told you and make a speech promising more and more of the same things that generated the massacre. Excerpted from an editorial at Investors Business Daily: TheState of the Union speech supposedly was chock full of big, brassynew ideas to help the...

OBAMA AND ERNST

Lucky for Republicans most people don\’t watch the State Of The Union message/rebuttal, and most who do forget about them soon afterwards. Barack Obama, whatever you thought of the words themselves, was dynamic and compelling. Joni Ernst, by contrast, was robotic and monotonal, with a painted smile that made her look like a Barbie doll wannabe.  It is hard to connect last...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ), a man I have written disparagingly of in the past, based on his ethical issues. But not today. Click here to see/hear Senator Menendez dismantle a hapless Obama windbag, Antony J. Blinken, regarding the administration\’s unfailingly inept, incompetent and truly dangerous position (if you can call it one) on...

BALL-BUSTED

New England Patriots coach bill belichick has cheated before.  And, while I can\’t prove it in a court of law, it appears clear that he has cheated again. See, an underinflated football is easier to grip than a fully inflated on.  And that is of great benefit in a game played in rainy weather – like, for example, the League Championship game between belichick\’s...

REAL RACISM?

This, I have to admit, is a tough one. On Martin Luther King Jr. day, Atlantic City\’s Borgata Hotel had a special menu for their Metropolitan Restaurant, which included fried chicken and collard greens. On its face, that looks like an obvious stereotype (all that was missing was some barbeque, and watermelon for dessert).  But it may not be that simple.  According to a...

THE LUDICROUS MAYOR OF PARIS

Take heart, New Yorkers.  You may not have the most ludicrous Mayor of a major city in the world. Yeah, I know bill de blasio has made it clear that he prefers left wing protesters over cops.  And that he didn\’t have a word of condemnation they chanted their demand for dead cops.  And he has made a point of consorting with the execrable...

WHY I DID NOT WATCH THE STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH

Hmmm….sitting on my couch and watching a speech by Barack Obama, or heading into Manhattan with my wife and seeing Alan Cumming and Emma Stone in Cabaret. It was a tough decision.  But, somehow, Alan Cumming and Emma Stone won out.  (That, and the fact that, if I made the wrong decision, my wife would have killed me.) Cabaret was absolutely great.  And Cumming...

BLACK TOUGH LOVE

Following is a segment of an essay written by wmd.com\’s Mychal Massie, regarding al sharpton\’s complaining that no Black actors or actresses were nominated for academy awards this year. I don\’t agree with everything Mr. Massie says.  But a) I agree with a lot of it and b) in any event, it is an instance of what, for lack of a better term, I will call “Black...
