Obama sets off on scorched-earth rampage

President Obama, fresh off a shellacking in the 2014 midterm elections — in which he made himself a centerpiece, much to the chagrin of embattled Democrats — is about to embark on a scorched-earth rampage that will change the face of America forever.

MSM says GOP tsunami means voters are choosing 'none of the above'

To America's mainstream media, the midterm elections are a choice between bad and worse. Here's why, by their reasoning: No one — repeat no one — in their right mind could ever vote for Republicans, so clearly the country's voters are so disengaged and dissatisfied that they couldn't care less about who wins.

Two weeks before election day, the nation’s likely voters have started seeing eye-to-eye with the election prognosticators. Most now expect the Republican Party to take control of the U.S. Senate, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. And by a growing margin, more say that’s the outcome they’d like to see.

Mainstream media shocked latest polls show GOP pulling away

The mainstream media made a hearty go of it, attempting for the last few weeks to portray the Nov. 4 election as a toss-up. But poll after poll is now showing those reports to be nothing more than a barrel of red herrings: Republicans are solidly in the lead with just more than a week to go.

Trick or treat: Dems running scared from Obama

There's "keeping your distance," and then there's crossing to the other side of the street, pulling your hat down over your eyes and pretending you don't see that annoying neighbor you'd rather not chat with at the moment.

Obama's spectacular incompetence turns deadly

It was only a matter of time. President Obama, a short-term college professor and failed community organizer who became a mostly absentee state senator and then an all-but-invisible U.S. senator, has Petered out. Per the Peter Principle, he has risen to his level of incompetence — some would argue far beyond it.

Obama now phoning it in — literally

On Sunday, President Obama suited up for work. He put on his pants (most likely one leg at a time, but perhaps not), then slipped on his black windbreaker, the one with the presidential seal on one side, his name on the other (in case he forgets who he is). He put on some comfy sports socks, laced up his shoes real tight — it would be a long, hard day.

Obama's breathtaking naivete at the United Nations

President Obama on Wednesday delivered a speech at the United Nations filled with his usual soaring rhetoric of global collectivism and the importance of "international norms." But the president also displayed a shocking naivete about global affairs, religion, Islam — a Pollyannaish interpretation on the state of the world and America's role in it.
