  • Wow, just wow

    The next secret Air Force One photo op that was scheduled? Buzzing DC and the Pentagon. Good grief.

  • Onocchio: deficit “wasn’t me”

    The now-famous chart says otherwise. And even the AP says he’s flat-out lying.

  • Hysteria

    Hardcore leftists assumed that electing Obama meant they’d finally brainwashed everyone. Au contraire, as the President would like us to say.

  • Also makes it illegal to notice someone might be gay, or something like that. (Barney Frank’s of course behind it. Heh, I said “behind it” while I still can).

  • A very good point. I don’t think TOTUS will wait around to see how those work out before continuing onwards to Marx though.

  • Obama’s good for some business

    Not only are guns still selling briskly, but Mark Levin’s book is already up to 18 printings and 1 million copies in print. Plus it’s beating the tar out of the new Dan Brown drek on Amazon’s top 10.

  • Here’s the suffix: “Planegate”

    Many good points and questions. As one points out: throw in a few more planes, call it a mini air-show, maybe charge admission for the best spots, and it’s a whole different thing. Also, this is probably the most Photoshop-ready gaffe in the history of politics.

    The tone deafness of the Administration is incredible. Yes, it would be a great idea to buzz lower Manhattan, Jersey City, and the Statue of Liberty in a 747 unannounced. Can’t they hire Aaron Sorkin as the “Don’t Do That” Czar?

    Murtha passed new rules in 1997 that make it harder to investigate him now. Very handy.

  • Yeah, there’s a shock

    The government’s essentially taking over GM and giving it to the UAW. Maybe they’ll be able to negotiate a competitive contract with themselves.

  • Naturally this has enraged Robert Fisk and some of the other usual suspects. A previous BBC internal audit believed to have come to the same conclusions was (and remains) suppressed.
