Nominations for most Unreported story

Posted by Sal on November 18, 2005

For my first nomination, I nominate the economy. The health of the economy is one of the most underreported stories. With GDP Growth of anywhere between 3.8% and 4.2% in the last quarter, and the stock market hitting a 4 1/2 year high, our economy is booming. The reasons for this are:

  1. The resourcefulness and ingenuity of the American People
  2. The tax cuts of the last 4 years.

Yet you hardly hear a word of this in the MSM. Why? Because it would make George W. Bush look good. For this reason alone, his poll numbers should be in the mid 50’s.

Senator Spitballs Is Cornered (Interesting Pic Regarding Salinger’s Post)

Posted by Mike on November 18, 2005

Looks like Senator Spitballs is going to have to make a decision. Will he be for surrendering before he’s against it? Or is it the other way around? It’s amazing how this loser can keep looking like loser even after the loser lost the election.

Politically speaking this is 2002 all over again. Remember when the Democrats kept squawking “make the case make the case” and then whined about the decision to vote on the most important issue of the day prior to an election?

Tonight the libs either show their true colors by voting to surrender or offend the girlie men who frequent Fahrenheit 9-11 screenings, attend war protests and listen to Bette Midler. They’re damned if they do and damned if they don’t.

As the makers of my favorite beer would say—BRILLIANT!

House Republicans returning to the fold

Posted by Sal on November 18, 2005

House Republicans are slowly starting to return to the fold and act like Republicans again. Yesterday, they passed a budget resolution that aimed to reduce the deficit — albeit not by too much, but at least it’s a start.

Today, they are debating the Iraq war and plan to defeat a resolution to withdraw troops from Iraq that was introduced yesterday.

Welcome back. We missed you.

You’re Welcome Sir. You May Have Another

Mona Charen at Town Hall is once again telling it as it is. Below is an excerpt from her column which succinctly describes the differences between the two parties on matters of national security.

“Liberals acknowledge the Clinton position but hasten to remind us that “Clinton didn’t go to war.” No. Because the Democrats are the party of talk, endless negotiations and U.N. resolutions. Even when faced with potentially catastrophic threats, they will not act militarily.
And now, in the midst of a grave conflict, they stoop to any lie to discredit a president who did not lack the courage to act. ”

Tax,Tax, Tax

Posted by Mike on November 18, 2005

Well just when it appeared that the Democrats were beginning to come out of the electoral wilderness, they give us an early Christmas present by allowing us to see them for who they really are. Yesterday they were calling for surrender in Iraq. But lost in yesterday’s Chamberlain-like hysteria was the Democrats reminding the country their party has never seen a tax increase they didn’t like.

Do the liberals really believe that oil companies wouldn’t pass on the costs of any tax increases to the consumer? Thankfully the adults are in charge.
