All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

Why the Donkey is a Jackass

Whether it’s the General Services Administration, the Secret Service, the pursuits of individual Departments or the actions of a Democratic Congress, the common thread is President Obama’s inability to provide leadership and accountability. The behavior of those in the Obama Presidency is easily summed up by the words “out of control.” You have dozens and dozens of bureaucrats pursuing their own objectives as if they were put in place to pursue whatever goals they choose. They do so without considering the potential impact on the President, his office, his election, his status among the American people. It’s like an MTV government where anything goes as long as you can get away with it. It’s like Jackass, only they are using your money and destroying your economy. Consider the following: EPA Secretary Lisa Jackson and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar are pursuing policies likely to cost Obama the election, yet they continue as if his election doesn’t even matter. Energy Secretary Steven Chu continues to throw good money after bad green energy ideas as if Solyndra and the other bankruptcies didn’t occur. Eric Holder decides to ignore the activity of the New Black Panthers, but sues states trying to enforce immigration and election laws. Not a single Democrat in the Hose of Representatives provides a vote for Obama’s budget, which lost 414-0. The Democratic Senate has not offered a Budget in three years. These are just a few of many things that have occurred without a whimper from the President. With the kind of friends Obama has, he doesn't need any enemies.
