Peace in our time: Obama to address Congress on jobs the day after GOP debate

Update: A good catch by New Yorker correspondent Ryan Lizza. Note in Carney’s statement that they’re now saying they merely “consulted” with Boehner’s office beforehand. Says Lizza, “‘Cleared’ officially downgraded to ‘consulted.’ So someone at WH anonymously passed along inaccurate information to several journos. Nice.” Continue reading

Status of Sarah Palin’s Tea Party appearance in Iowa unconfirmed, then reconfirmed

Very nice of Crow to call himself naive and reassure supporters that Palin is “a lady of her word and impeccably honest” (as he also did). But it’s also possible the “sources close to the former Alaska governor” who suggested to both the WSJ and RealClearPolitics that Palin was reconsidering her appearance knew a flap like this would generate additional media coverage. It’s also possible Palin really is a little nervous that appearing alongside O’Donnell will tarnish her brand. (O’Donnell, for her part, is doing her best to turn this to her advantage, tweeting that she accepted her re-invitation to speak because she believes in “rising above it,” whatever “it” is.)

Obama and Boehner Square Off on Government Regulation

In his earlier letter, the speaker requested the specific information from the White House be available to Congress when they return from recess in September, so that “as the House considers legislation requiring a congressional review and approval of any proposed federal government regulation that will have a significant impact on the economy as we continue our efforts to remove impediments to job creation and economic growth for the American people.” Continue reading

Glenn Beck: Rick Perry’s “God moment” leads me to believe he’s the real deal

Glenn Beck and his beloved sidekick Pat Gray, who used to live in Texas, recently had a conversation with some people very close to Rick Perry with regard to their concerns about him as a candidate. These are people who Beck, without divulging their identities, says that he trusts and that if he could tell you who they were it would only add credibility to their words. What they told him was that in the last four years Rick Perry has had a God-moment: Continue reading

Obama’s HUD Violated ACORN Funding Ban

And unfortunately, here we have yet another instance of the Obama administration stubbornly refusing to respect the Freedom of Information Act and the rule of law. It seems these days that the Obama administration has opened up yet another war – a war on transparency. Continue reading

Airlifts Take Food, Water to Vermont Towns Cut-Off by Irene Floods

In a deluge that caught many communities off guard, Irene dumped up to 11 inches of rain in some places in Vermont, turning placid mountain streams into roaring brown torrents that smashed buildings and ripped homes from their foundations. At least three people died in Vermont. Continue reading

Irene Throws Obama Another Curveball Amid Push to Refocus on Economy

At the same time, the effects of hurricanes tend to be localized and not big enough to choke the national economy. Any drop-off from the immediate damage can also be offset later by the burst of spending on construction and relief efforts. Plus Irene has been downgraded to a Category 2 and is tracking a bit east of New York City — a good sign. Continue reading

The Pink Slip President

Barack Obama’s chichi vacation may have sealed the deal and his temporary employment contract is not likely to be renewed. Obama may be enjoying family time on Martha’s Vineyard right now, but when the President returns to Washington he may be astounded to find out that the mail bin that was just sitting outside the Oval Office door last week has been placed inside and awaits him filling it with the contents of his desk. Continue reading

Feds Raid Guitar Maker…Looking for Illegal Wood

Certainly, the dedication of federal resources for the harassment of a private musical instrument producer reinforces already negative perceptions about the Obama administration’s hyper-regulatory environment.

Given the current economic climate, and the recent Obama administration decision to de-prioritize deportation of illegal immigrants in a way that appears to many as backdoor amnesty, the case against Gibson is raising many eyebrows. Continue reading

Zuckerman: America has a competency crisis in the White House

The president appears to consider himself immune from error and asserts the fault always lies elsewhere—be it in the opposition in Congress or the Japanese tsunami or in the failure of his audience to fully understand the wisdom and benefits of his proposals. But in politics, the failure of communication is invariably the fault of the communicator. Continue reading
