Obama tries to sell Gulf (snake) oil

For today's reading, may I suggest my article for Human Events about President Obama's prime time speech last night regarding the Gulf oil spill. Clearly, the man has adopted Rahm Emanuel's exhortation not to let a crisis go to waste. See "Obama Sells Economic Snake Oil", Ross Kaminsky, HumanEvents.com, 6/16/10http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=37519

Here's what we think of your financial "reform"

The stock market made an attempt to stabilize at lower levels during the middle of this afternoon but was crushed, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average falling about 180 points in the last hour for a total fall of about 375 points on the day following news that disappointment-in-chief Senator Scott Brown changed his cloture vote on the Democrats' financial regulation bill, giving Harry Reid the 60th vote he needed to bring the measure up for a final vote, most likely in the next couple of days.

BP! BP! BP! (boot on neck of...) BP!

In his statement following his weather-thwarted attempt to view the enormous oil slick growing in the Gulf of Mexico, President Obama repeated his leading theme about the potential disaster: It's BP's fault and BP will pay the cost of the cleanup. Repeating: It's BP's fault. Did you hear me?  It's BP's fault! In case you're still unclear what the point is: It's not the federal government's fault. Whose fault is it, you ask?  It's BP's fault!  How many times do I have to say it?

Obama's Campaign Finance Rhetoric is Misleading

Actions will always speak louder than words. For instance, President Barack Obama preaching a minimal role for corporations in funding campaigns isn’t ethical when in fact he himself was a major recipient of corporate funds leading up to his presidential election in 2008.

State of the Union: President Obama’s Chance to Explain

President Barack Obama will deliver his State of the Union Address tonight at 9 o’clock. Given the state of the economy, it will be interesting to hear how much of his speech includes proposals that could actually stimulate job growth, shrink the fiscal deficit, and encourage private investment.

When even the AP suggests the stimulus isn't working...

When even the liberal Associated Press suggests the stimulus isn't working as we're told, you know the bloom is coming off the Obama rose, and Americans are slowly but surely learning the destructive fiscal folly of his economic policies. In an article reprinted in the Denver Post yesterday entitled "Stimulus jobs overcounted nationwide", two AP reporters lay out details of companies that substantially overstated the number of jobs they claimed to have "saved or created" with stimulus money.

Generation Why?

To the surprise of absolutely no one, the Wall Street Journal noted last week that members of so-called "Generation Y" are heavily in favor of President Obama's proposed health care reform, despite the fact that they will be the ones left to deal with the fallout from long-term cost overruns and degraded quality of care.

Everyday 14,000 Americans Lose Their Coverage, Really?

On September 9, 2009 Barack Obama gave a speech on health care before a Joint Session of Congress in which he said that “every day, 14,000 Americans lose their coverage.”  In an email to its members on August 27, 2009 promoting vigils for those who can’t afford health insurance, MoveOn cited the same statistic of 14,000 people losing their coverage every day.  From where did this figure come and is it accurate?  MoveOn cites a study done by the Center for American Progress (CAP), a liberal think tank, in February of 2009 as the source of the statistic.
