Lies, Damn Lies And The State Of The Union Address

February 4, 2015 by

1

By Herbert London ~ The pundits have spoken. Most believe that the State of The Union Address is a combination of self-congratulation over what was done in the last year and a laundry list of what should be done in the year ahead. In reality it represents fanfare without substance; there is scarcely a difference […]

By Lt. Colonel James G. Zumwalt, USMC (RET) ~ If “men are from Mars, women from Venus,” on what planet does President Obama reside? Listening to his January 20th State of the Union (SOTU) address makes one wonder. The planet Obama described was one of stability as his leadership has succeeded in degrading ISIS and […]

By Melissa Quinn ~ President Obama delivered his sixth State of the Union address tonight, outlining a number of domestic policy proposals and warning Republicans he would strike down any legislation that repeals Obamacare and rolls back his immigration policies.

One Speech Too Many

January 30, 2014 by

1

By Alan Caruba ~ I didn’t take notes while President Obama gave his State of the Union speech. There was no need to. There was a time when the SOTU was a just a letter sent to Congress, but in the era of radio and television, Presidents took advantage of the opportunity to be seen […]

President Obama, The Media’s Favorite Autocrat

January 30, 2014 by

2

By Brent Bozell ~ Everyone proposes drinking games for the State of the Union speech. But it’s not just the president that can drive you to drink. It’s the opportunistic media elites deciding which branches of government have too much power, depending on which branches the Democrats presently control. After a lot of stalemate in […]

The President Won’t Be Needing You

January 30, 2014 by

By Amy Payne ~ President Obama says this is a “year of action”—and last night he made it very clear whose action he was talking about. After noting recently that he has a pen and a phone and can use those to make changes without the help of Congress, Obama charged forward with promises of […]

Obama’s State Of The Union Speech Will Be All Lies

January 22, 2014 by

By Alan Caruba ~ On January 28, the President of the United States will stand before a joint session of Congress and lie to them and to all Americans. The mainstream media will treat it as a serious presentation and make no mention of the lies. Following the State of the Union speech (SOTU) there […]

What Is Coming

December 27, 2013 by

1

By Herbert London ~ The State of the Union address by President Obama is a month away, but the content and orientation of that speech can be limned from White House briefings. Rather than discuss failures such as a healthcare website that still rejects applicants or ellipses such as the unrecorded conversations about the U.S. […]

Governor Perry Undercuts Barack Obama’s SOTU Ruse

February 17, 2013 by

0

By Christopher Adamo ~ Despite all of the leftist hype and contrived anticipation preceding Barack Obama’s 2013 “State of the Union” spectacle, the entire event was monotonously predictable and absolutely nothing of substance came out of it. From his standard litany of disingenuous platitudes to the shameless media fawning that inevitably followed, every aspect of […]

From SOTU To SNAFU

February 15, 2013 by

0

By Alan Caruba ~ Despite the rosy scenario provided by the President’s State of the Union (SOTU) Speech on February 12, a far more realistic presentation was made on February 13 by Douglas W. Elmendorf, the Director of the Congressional Budget Office. The CBO is apolitical and non-partisan, relying solely on the cold hard facts […]

Obama Has NOT Doubled the Nation’s Fuel Economy

February 14, 2013 by

0

By Derrick Morgan ~ President Obama’s State of the Union speech last night was full of good intentions, bad policy, and suspect claims. He said, for example, that “We have doubled the distance our cars will go on a gallon of gas.” Obama has imposed a mandate that aims to basically double fuel economy by […]

Obama Sees Climate Disasters That Scientists Can’t

February 14, 2013 by

0

By Andrew Bolt ~ Barack Obama in his State of the Union address yesterday ignored the 16-year warming pause and beat up the global warming scare, using weather to argue the climate had changed for the worse: “Now, it’s true that no single event makes a trend. But the fact is, the 12 hottest years […]

Obama: Repeating The Same Mistakes (And Lies)

January 29, 2010 by

0

By Alan Caruba It is the duty of being a “pundit” to have an opinion on the events of the day and, of course, everyone has an opinion about President Obama’s State of the Union speech. My most distinct impression while listening to it was that I had heard it all before. It was a […]

Obama’s Attempt To Revive Cap And Trade

January 29, 2010 by

0

By Nick Loris President Obama gave his first State of the Union speech last night and while his delivery reminded many Americans of the man they saw on the campaign trail, his rhetoric was much of the same. Although the president did call for offshore drilling and an expansion of nuclear, his focus was clean […]

State Of The Union: Obama v. Constitution

By Mark Alexander “The duty imposed upon him to take care, that the laws be faithfully executed, follows out the strong injunctions of his oath of office, that he will ‘preserve, protect, and defend the constitution.’ The great object of the executive department is to accomplish this purpose; and without it, be the form of […]

President Obama’s Clean Energy Renewable Power Turkey

January 28, 2010 by

1

Last night in the President’s State Of The Union Address, he mentioned ‘Clean Energy’ ten times, also hyping up Renewable power. I want you to picture this. You buy a brand new car straight off the showroom floor. Each day of the week you drive that car to work. Out of the five days in […]

And, Now, For Some Good News!

By Alan Caruba After the State of the Union speech and the instant analyses on television and the punditry that follows on newspaper’s editorial pages and, of course, on news/opinion websites and countless blogs and forums, the tendency is likely to dwell on how it portends more of the same bad policies. It is obvious […]

Fineman: Obama Should Be On Mt. Rushmore For That Speech

January 28, 2010 by

By Noel Sheppard “If presidential leadership were only about giving speeches, the jackhammers would already be at work on Mt. Rushmore.” So amazingly said Newsweek’s Howard Fineman shortly after President Obama finished his State of the Union Address, but that wasn’t the only absurd thing he told MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann on Wednesday’s “Countdown.” “In many, […]
