In the immediate aftermath of the 2014 midterm elections, President Obama controversially commented that his party’s overwhelming loss was due to “two thirds” of voters not turning out at the polls. National turnout, at 37% eligible voter participation, was the lowest it had been in any federal general election since 1942. The United States routinely [...]
Barack is back. The president turned the clock back to 2008 during his State of the Union address Tuesday night, returning to an era of hope, change, sizzling delivery, and above all, progressive ideology. While he didn’t ignore current issues – directly addressing ISIL, cybersecurity, free trade, Russian aggression, and infrastructure and alluding to the [...]
I’m working at the board of elections this summer and today we got a list of the hours we worked to make sure they were right. Another student and I were sitting there trying to figure out how much money we were going to make for all the time we put in tediously checking Senate [...]
“One of the great strengths of the United States is . . . we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.” With all due respect, Mr. President, you are dead wrong. And with all due respect, Mr. President, please stop your assault on our country and our faith.
After this year’s historic midterm elections, the Democrats have lost their virtually-unchecked power in Washington. While this comes as a relief for many Americans, do the Democrats really deserve to lose the gavels after just two years of power? Disclaimer #1: Now, I know my friends on the left would be quick to counter-argue that [...]
Murray St. is a sexy pick. I know this. Exactly the kind of sexy pick that would fool President Obama: I would say this was the straw that broke the camel’s back but that camel has looked like Ali Larter at the end of Obsessed since last February. You can catch a great pre-game for [...]
Just in case anyone sensed an ebb in the tide of government intrusion into private markets, the House of Representatives recently voted to keep Americans under water. Amid the hysteria surrounding health care reform, the passage of H.R. 3221, an education bill marked by a government takeover of the student lending industry, went largely unnoticed.
When Barack Obama was elected president, many (rightly) wondered how. His extreme lack of experience, his undeniably questionable associations, and his principle-devoid rhetoric would seem like more than enough to turn public sentiment the other way. The election was certainly not a landslide, yet election night wasn’t exactly a thriller either.
Eric Spiegelman took all the photos from the Obamas’ reception at the Met the other night, and well, like an Obama mannequin or the unmitigated horror of It’s a Small World, the President’s smile never changes. IT NEVER CHANGES. You either have to admire the consistency (…of the robot) or brustle at the fakery (…of [...]
Well, it looks like we need more Change, and not for the better. President Obama made some progress in his quest to save the world by having his climate change bill (also called the POS bill) pass the House of Representatives. Did the Democrats forget that we’re in a recession? This isn’t exactly the best [...]
