Dear Jorge Ramos: I’m not impressed with your tweets of outrage

(My new American Thinker post) President Obama said that he will act on immigration reform after the elections.  I guess that he finally got the memo that a lot of Democrats in red states do not want any more Obama burdens to carry around or reasons to stay away when the President is in town. Some are […]

No “hope and change” for blacks in the Obama years

Let's look at the US for a second. I mean let's take a look at the "sorry" state of black America under our first black president: "For black Americans, age 16 and older, seasonally adjusted, the unemployment rate between July and August stayed the same at 11.4%, and that is up from the 10.7% rate […]

Dear President Obama: “Tu nuevo embajador a la Argentina nunca ha visitado Argentina”

(This is my American Thinker post about our new ambassador to Argentina.) Let's be fair and admit that ambassadorships are often handed out to friends of the president.   So I will cut President Obama some slack if he chooses a political friend to fill an ambassador's post. But not Argentina. Not today's Argentina. Senator […]

“No me digas”: The Obama Care website “habla Spanglish”!

Why is anyone surprised?   The Spanish Obama Care website is a mess! The Obama Care website is frustrating Spanish speakers: "The site, CuidadoDeSalud.gov, launched more than two months late. A Web page with Spanish instructions linked users to an English form. And the translations were so clunky and full of grammatical mistakes that critics […]

“Barbara y su falso mesías”

Barbara Walters admitted the obvious, i.e. too many people got caught up in Obama the Messiah: "Barbara Walters said the difficulties engulfing President Barack Obama are a reflection of the let-down people are feeling from the high expectations they had during his earliest days in office when she and others thought he was going to […]

“El que tiene palanca”: ObamaCare is so great that some of Obama’s friends get waivers

There are many reasons to dislike ObamaCare, such as the whole issue of federal overreach and impact on the private insurance market. However, the #1 reason is that the law does not apply equally to all.    President Obama has unilaterally changed the law to give groups special favors or treatment. The Wall Street Journal […]

“Yo no fui” Obama throws the NSA under the bus

The NSA people are furious that they are getting thrown under the bus for carrying out orders, according to Max Boot: "The intel community isn’t happy about being blamed for conducting what Obama implies is a rogue operation: “People are furious,” said a senior intelligence official. “This is officially the White House cutting off the […]

“Las monjas se van a enojar con Obama” for spying on Pope Francis

I hope that they didn't tell President Obama about this one: "The National Security Agency spied on the future Pope Francis before and during the Vatican conclave at which he was chosen to succeed Benedict XVI, it was claimed on Wednesday. The American spy agency monitored telephone calls made to and from the residence in […]

The problem is that Obama “se ahoga en un vaso de agua”

"Obama the manager" is suddenly a topic for discussion.  Put me down as one who thinks that President Obama does not like "the managerial duties" of the presidency.  He loves Air Force One, the ceremonial tasks and White House Chef but not the often hard work of governing and dealing with difficult problems. He is […]

Why ObamaCare is NOT a Failure…

If you take the time to read just one thing this weekend seriously consider this article... Wayne Allyn Root outlines why ObamaCare is going as planned, and is not a "trainwreck", but the red train charging down the tracks headed for the destruction of our nation's political, societal and cultural structure ... and if the […]

President “Nadie me dice nada” Obama

According to The Washington Post, nobody told President Obama: "The problem here isn't just technological. It's managerial. The White House's senior staff -- up to and including the president -- was blindsided. Staffers deep in the process knew that HealthCare.gov wasn't ready for primetime. But those frustrations were hidden from top-level managers. Somewhere along the […]

Why didn’t we hire “the best and the brightest” in the first place?

Has anybody seen Secretary Sebelius?  She is apparently up in Massachusetts and avoiding any serious questions about this disaster known as the ObamaCare roll out. She did say that the search is on for "the best and the brightest", i.e. the top tech people in the country to fix the Affordable Health Care Act website. […]

Pres Obama: “Se te cayo el tabaco”

From time to time, we have to go to that philosopher of philosophers, the inimitable Beny More of Santa Isabel de la Lajas., a town near Cienfuegos and the likely inspiration for "El Santo de Tia Juliana". I think that Beny would be singing this about the collapsing political fortunes of President Obama:  "Se te […]

The State of Denial: ObamaCare and the Transformation of America

What is left to say? We are now stating the obvious. As the democrat-run Senate and the GOP-lead House play a tug-of-war over shutting down the U.S. government over the funding of the unwanted ObamaCare law, Obama and the White House continue to dismiss the facts and deny ObamaCare's already damage to jobs and the […]

Are You Feeling All That Promised “Hope and Change” Yet?

How great were the first four years under Obama? Let's just say Hugo Chavez is grinning up from Hell... During the four years that marked President Barack Obama’s first term in office, the real median income of American households dropped by $2,627 and the number of people in poverty increased by approximately 6,667,000, according to […]
