Liberals are always re-writing history, so why not geography?

Liberals and progressives have been re-writing major portions of American history for decades. If the facts don’t line up with your agenda, change them so they do. Want to win the black vote? Re-write history to erase Republican successes on civil rights while white-washing—did that sound racist?—your party’s connections to the Klu Klux Klan. Want to raise taxes? Re-write history and tell Americans that Bill Clinton’s 1993 increase of personal income taxes on the top bracket—which had a very negative effect on the economy—resulted in 23 million jobs being created. You also rewrite the part that shows that this job growth didn’t occur until Clinton…

A Look At Economic/Energy Solutions From Both Sides

December 10, 2012
By

The stalemate going on in Washington about the fiscal cliff highlights the two very different economic viewpoints held, not just in Washington, but across America: more government, more taxes; less spending, lower taxes. But there is a third prong that is largely absent from the discussion: growth and creating new wealth—and energy can play a big role, but it, too, has two divergent sides. To have success, both sides need to feel that they are getting what they want. Energy should be part of the current fiscal cliff discussions because all recessions since 1973 have been preceded by a spike…

Obama Keeps Moving His Pivot Foot On The Economy

When the golfer-in-chief isn’t out on the links adding to his record number of golf games played, he can often be found on the basketball court. Considering the amount of time this takes up, it’s amazing how he finds the time to campaign (no wonder he was too busy to support Wisconsin Democrats in the recall battle against Scott Walker). As a basketball player, the President is undoubtably familiar with the rules, particularly the rules regarding “traveling” and the use of his “pivot foot.” The pivot is a key concept in basketball. A player pivots when he keeps one foot still and turns…

Now Obama’s Poor Economic Performance Makes Sense

It’s no mystery that the economy under the anointed one has been dismal. Many people, myself included, thought that this was probably due to his inexperience at anything other than community organizing. After all, there’s not really a lot of Business 101 involved in organizing people to fight job-creating capitalism in the name of social justice, is there? Nope, it turns out that he simply “forgot” the magnitude of the recession. Of course, to be fair, it’s hard to focus on your job when you’re on the road all of the time in order to hold a record number of fundraisers. That is, when you’re…

New Political Ad Documents Obama’s Energy Successes

March 30, 2012
By

In a new ad released by the American Energy Alliance, we are given a glimpse into the energy successes of the Obama Administration. Successes such as: Opposition to oil exploration in Alaska Wasting millions of taxpayer dollars on bankrupt alternative energy companies – can you say Solyndra? Killing the Keystone Pipeline Unfortunately, these policy “successes” are “failures” when it comes to providing for America’s energy needs. Check out the ad that will air in Florida, Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, Ohio and Virginia. It has a strong message.   And from the “truth hurts, doesn’t it” department, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz shifts the focus to the messenger…
