Vice President Biden e-mailed me right before lunch. The subject line got my attention:Read More
The president loves threats.
He threatened the Syrian president not to cross a “red line” by using chemical weapons on his people. He did, and our president caved. We did nothing.
He leveled a similar threat regarding the Ukraine. The Ukraine government was so nonplussed by the threat that they didn’t even bother to answer the phone when our Secretary of Defense put in a call. A defense spokesman with the Obama Government sheepishly admitted this was unprecedented.
Domestically, the president repeatedly threatened Republicans not to mess with Obamacare. Ironically, Mr. Obama didn’t even believe his own threats. In recognition of the abject failure of Obamacare, the president himself has been messing with the Affordable Care Act.

“But I’m not a liberal. And the service stinks on this side. And it’s expensive. And they discriminate on the basis of race.”
Libby wouldn’t take no for an answer and dragged me through a door I swore I’d never walk through. As my eyes grew accustomed to the light, I saw that the menu had changed, and had become, against all odds, even more offensive:
“How could any president put his entire reputation on the line with a program and not be on the phone every day pushing people and making sure it will work? Do you know of any president who wouldn’t do that?””Read More
The Register’s editorial “Insurance’s Forgotten Lesson: We All Help Each Other” [Nov. 17] made the arrogant claim that “One benefit (of Obamacare) is being overlooked: Americans are finally learning how insurance works.” As a self-employed insurance professional and practicing Catholic, I think the aforementioned sentence makes more sense when worded, “Americans are finally learning how socialism works.”Read More
