WHERE\’S WALDOBAMA?

I think I have to change President Obama\’s name to President WaldObama.  Because, like Waldo, you can\’t find him in any of the places a reasonable person would expect him to be. -Our airstrikes having proved worthless, ISIS is poised to massacre the citizens of Kobani, Syria – as Turkish troops, part of the “coalition” President Obama claimed...

Ken Berwitz My congratulations to White House National Security adviser Susan Rice.  Unaccustomed as I am to saying this, we actually agree on something. From Megan R. Wilson\’s article at thehill.com: White House National Security Advisor Susan Rice says other countries “haven\’t done enough” to help stop the deadly disease Ebola from spreading. “We are...

JOHN MCCAIN & BERNIE SANDERS – A CLEAR-CUT CHOICE

But if you want a clear-cut choice between Mr. McCain\’s and Mr. Sanders\’s views of what...

MEXICO: OUR “FRIEND”

How would you feel if the government of your country not only allowed you to illegally cross the border and go to a neighboring country, not only encouraged it (by, among other things, putting out booklets explaining how to deal with the neighboring country\’s border patrols)….and now is paying money to keep the neighboring country from sending you back? In a sane world, you would be...

THE MOST DISGUSTING POLITICAL AD OF THE YEAR

It is always hard to pick a “most disgusting political ad of the year” because, lamentably, there are so many to choose from. But this one has got to win hands-down. Here is an ad for Texas gubernatorial candidate, Democrat Wendy Davis, attacking her opponent, Republican Greg Abbott, who, due to a freak accident in 1984, has been wheelchair-bound since he was...

WAY TO GO, MARCIA…ER, MICHELLE

Michelle Obama was sent out to Iowa last night, where she made a campaign speech extolling the military career of Democrat Senate candidate Bruce Bailey. Except the candidate\’s name is Bruce Braley…and he never served in the military. If Ms. Obama had said “Bailey” once, we could chalk it up to inadvertent error.  We all make them. But the 7th time she called him...
