Slavish Conservative Bootlicking: Let Government Do Anything to Keep 1 Person Safe

James Delingpole sarcastically takes the New York Times to task for telling the world about Bush’s secret, illegal and unconstitutional warrantless wiretapping program that spied on innocent people. His 296th Way to Drive a Liberal Crazy is:

el·e·vat·ed adj. the lowest terrorist threat level during the years of 2001-2010

94th Way to Exasperate a Liberal: Keep Bush’s Surveillance-War Team and Call it Change

As Jake Tapper of ABC News points out, 3 out of 4 of President Barack Obama’s “new” 2011 team in charge of worldwide spying and war were leaders in President George W. Bush’s team conducting worldwide spying and war: David Petraeus, Ryan Crocker and John Allen.

Oil Is Not My Addiction Of Choice

As addictions go, our addiction to oil isn’t even very satisfying. It’s nasty, vile, and polluting. We would do better to be addicted to chocolate, or to alcohol, or to old movies. […]

Obama Legal Team Protects Bush, Kicks Gays When They’re Down

Barack Obama doesn’t really have any consistent philosophy of following his legal responsibilities, even when they’re politically convenient. Obama and his partisan allies are just using that argument as an excuse to justify his broken promise to end discrimination against homosexual Americans. […]

Barack Obama is Braver in his Presidency than George W. Bush ever was

Read our articles on President Barack Obama and you’ll know that we don’t hold back in our criticisms. But there’s one aspect of his presidency that I admire. As Obama has appeared across the country over the past few weeks, he’s faced Americans who ask him difficult and critical questions. These questions aren’t scripted, and […]

I am a Charter Member of the George W. Bush Presidential Center

I am so excited.

I got a letter in the mail today, a letter containing a very special card and a very special message just for me:

The other protesters who I met outside the speech, part of a small grassroots Tea Party presence, didn’t care so much about Barack Obama’s big brother spying powers; they’d supported George W. Bush after all. […]
