1. Barack Obama’s Attempted Character Assassination of Koch Industries

When the President of the United States, in prepared remarks, launches a broadside against any organization, it is no accident. In the case of Barack Obama and left, we have a new target for this White House — yet another company whose owners take issue with Barack Obama destroying the country.On August 9th, speaking in Austin, TX, Barack Obama said, “Right now all around this country there are groups with harmless-sounding names like Americans for Prosperity, who are running millions of dollars of ads against Democratic candidates all across the country. And they don’t have to say who exactly the Americans for Prosperity are. You don’t know if it’s a foreign-controlled corporation. You don’t know if it’s a big oil company, or a big bank. You don’t know if it’s a insurance company that wants to see some of the provisions in health reform repealed because it’s good for their bottom line, even if it’s not good for the American people.”It was the planned launch of what appears to be a well coordinated and long term assault on Koch Industries, the owners of which fund Americans for Prosperity.Please click here for the rest of the post.

2. Obama owning the economy… any time now.

There are two passages that you need to consider from this Hill article about how the current administration continues to blame the previous administration for everything in creation, but particularly our current rotten economic situation – a year after the current administration promised to stop doing precisely that. Here is the first passage…”During a July 14, 2009, address in Warren, Mich., Obama said, “Now, my administration has a job to do, as well, and that job is to get this economy back on its feet. That’s my job. And it’s a job I gladly accept. I love these folks who helped get us in this mess and then suddenly say, ‘Well, this is Obama’s economy.’ That’s fine. Give it to me. My job is to solve problems, not to stand on the sidelines and carp and gripe.””…and here is the second:”The White House did not comment for this article.”Please click here for the rest of the post.

3. By Faith: I Am Proud of Franklin Graham

Much has been made this week of Franklin Graham’s comments both about the Ground Zero Mosque and Barack Obama’s religion. It has been more than hilarious to watch all the news networks, newspapers, and pundits try to explain Graham’s comments.All of those who have been talking about his comments have talked about them from a political point of view.Franklin Graham couldn’t care less. I couldn’t care less. What Franklin Graham said is dead on.Please click here for the rest of the post.

4. Ms. Magazine Says It’s Not The Economy, Stupid. It’s Your Girly Bits

Last year, the Left floated the idea that unemployment is really super fun and tried to pass it off as FUNemployment. That spin eventually failed, because people not living in their parents’ basements and fiddling with their iPods realized it really isn’t all that enjoyable not being able to, you know, pay their bills. So, they are now left with inventing new reasons for why people aren’t getting hired. Specifically, we women-folk. Guess what, ladies? It’s not the fact that President Obama has spent more time creating or saving his own golf handicap than he has spent on the economic situation, that is preventing you from getting a job. It’s your girly parts! According to that bastion of enlightenment, Ms. Magazine, at least. In an article entitled “It Wasn’t Your Resume, It Was Your Vagina”, they attempt to make that case. And fail. Miserably, as always.Please click here for the rest of the post.

5. Actually it looks like the Democrats will be the ones destroying social security

A headline at CNN back on August 13th proclaimed “Democrats to use Social Security against GOP this fall”.There is just one problem.The Wall Street Journal is reporting that it is Barack Obama’s own debt commission that intends to destroy social security as we know it.Please click here for the rest of the post.
