It was with great disappointment that I listened a few days ago to Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Donald Trump. I was similarly disappointed the next day when I heard Rush Limbaugh proffer simply that “Nationalism and populism have overtaken conservatism in terms of appeal.” It’s tough when you find that your heroes are less than… Read more »

Neal Boortz will be calling it quits this week after 42 years in the radio business. He timed his exit to ensure that if Barack Obama was reelected he (Obama) would not have another dollar of his (Boortz’s) income tax dollars to spend. As he rides off into the sunset to play golf, drive around… Read more »
The coming Democrat National Convention ought to be one to remember. Democrats are going to highlight the things that matter to them the most.
Rush Limbaugh noted during his Thursday broadcast that the Democratic Party has planned an agenda filled with female speakers for its upcoming national convention, and explained that it appears the party will turn the event into “a celebration of abortion” and contraception.
Back in March Soledad O’Brien attempted to rewrite history to protect Barack Obama and was roundly criticized for it. As noted back then, O’Brien is very obviously an Obama/liberal sycophant yet she insists otherwise.
Nancy Pelosi: “He’s (Bush) saying something to the effect of we’re so glad to welcome you here, congratulations and I know you’ll probably have some different things to say about what is going on-which is correct. But, as he was saying this, he was fading and this other thing was happening to me. My chair was getting crowded in,” said Pelosi. “I swear this happened, never happened before, it never happened since. My chair was getting crowded in and I couldn’t figure out what it was, it was like this. And then I realized Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Alice Paul, Sojourner Truth, you name it, they were all in that chair, they were. More than I named and I could hear them say: `At last we have a seat at the table.’ And then they were gone.”
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.: “I don’t think the burden should be on me. The burden should be on him. He’s the one I’ve alleged has not paid any taxes. Why didn’t he release his tax returns?” Harry Reid, incidentally, has not released any tax returns.
Sen. Chuck Schumer: “Every day Mitt Romney has to talk about tax returns is a bad day for him and a good day for the Democrats.” Chuck’s right on this.
Bill Moyers, PBS host: “The killer in Colorado waited only for an opportunity. And there you have it. The arsenal of democracy transformed into the arsenal of death. And the NRA — the NRA is the enabler of death. Paranoid, delusional, and as venomous as a scorpion.”
Bill O’Reilly: “Moyers has no clue, no clue at all. He apparently believes that federal and state governments can actually control gun crimes. That’s so dumb it hurts. Chicago has banned handguns in public. How is that working out, Bill? So far this year… 1,136 shootings. How about your state, Bill? New York? Well, it has a fourth toughest gun law in the country, it sounds good doesn’t it? Ready 2011, nearly 4,000 guns were confiscated by New York City cops. Just in the city… 4,000 guns. Yes, those tough gun laws, they’re working great, aren’t they? …You’re a genius, Bill. PBS is very lucky to have you.”
Mark Steyn: “The definition of a ‘nano-second, is the time between a mass shooting and some guy from the left blaming it on talk radio, or Sarah Palin, or Fox News.’ “
President Obama: “If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own…If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business – you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka: “Let’s call this right-wing ‘freedom’ catch phrase what it really is: a grossly political strategy to dupe the public, which holds the word ‘freedom’ as something sacred.” He further warned that people might opt out of social security, out of a union or out of paying union dues.
