Insane Anglo Warlord
Wall Street Jounal, by James Taranto

Mitt Romney missed a golden opportunity during last night's debate. "The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back," Barack Obama said. The perfect comeback would have been: "Oh yeah? Well, the ocean called, and they're running outta ships!" True, Romney delivered a version of this zinger, but much later. His timing was all wrong. Oh well, maybe Romney can arrange another meeting with the president and get it right this time. We understand Obama will be in Ohio.

FTA:"Today Reagan is generally credited with having won the Cold War while firing nary a shot. But to the left at the time, his byword of "peace through strength" just didn't compute. A more submissive America, they imagined, would placate prospective adversaries. It never dawned on them that a confident attitude can be disarming. Romney seems to have figured that out."

That about sums it up.

Most of the conservative talking heads seem to agree that Romney's presidential conversation was much better than The Won's snarky remarks.

Yes, Romney could have cut him to shred on the death of our Ambassador; but it would probably not have swayed any I's to come to our side.

We Conservatives would have loved it; but the deal here is to Win, first and foremost.

A real warmonger would have used large Idaho potatoes :-)

I agree with Rush Limbaugh, Romney did not have to go negative, his positive stance won the debate and the presidency.

LOL #1.

Sorry Romney couldn't have said that, of course followed by a fulsome apology.

It must have infuriated Obama to no end last night that Romney had the temerity to actually use the word ''peace'' a couple times, when Obama was hoping to make him a warmonger. Watching Obama on the split screen, I think one more debate and we'd see his head explode. Romney has got to him, roiling his narcissism.
Bravo, Governor!

Romney achieved his goal of looking presidential while Obama was a street thug. I saw the hilarious tiny booklet named "Obama's 2nd Term Plan" that he waved at rallies today... what a joke!

Reading the New Republic piece by Tom Donnelly of the Constitutional Accountability Center (a self-described organization of "constitutional progressives"), you´d think you´d gone back in time two years. "It´s the blockbuster case of the term," Donnelly says, referring to a dispute over ObamaCare now before the Supreme Court. "It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts´s leadership. . . . The stakes for his reputation--and that of his Court--couldn´t be higher." "Chief Justice Roberts has often spoken about how important it is for the justices to maintain the legitimacy of the Court--by limiting divisive rulings, moving the law

The story in today´s Philadelphia Inquirer begins reassuringly: "Nearly six months after the disastrous launch of Healthcare.gov, with the website running smoothly and more than five million people signed up as open enrollment heads to a close . . ." But it turns out that´s just disclamatory throat-clearing. Here´s the rest of the paragraph: ". . . a new glitch has come to light: Incorrect poverty-level guidelines are automatically telling what could be tens of thousands of eligible people they do not qualify for subsidized insurance."

Obama using powers of persuasion
to advance agenda

WASHINGTON — Ronald Reagan used to say the nine most terrifying words in the English language were: "I´m from the government and I´m here to help." Barack Obama is offering Americans his own twist on that message: He´s from the government and he needs your help. Frustrated by the inability of Congress and the White House to reach agreement on much of anything, the president is increasingly relying on his powers of persuasion to cajole people and organizations to help tackle some of the country´s big problems —voluntarily. Lots of presidents promote volunteerism, of course. This is something different. The president this year

With just 250 shopping days until Election Day, a New York Times/CBS News has good news for Republicans. Asked how they plan to vote for the House, "42 percent say they will back Republicans in November, and 39 percent indicate that they will back Democrats." Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Megan Thee-Brenan note that´s "a difference within the poll´s margin of sampling error." More pertinent, however, is that this "generic ballot" question tends to overstate Democratic support. In October 2010, just before the Republicans picked up 63 seats and a majority, the Democrats had a one-point edge, 43% to 42%, in

Sometimes it´s wise to resist the temptation to form an opinion on every event related to culture and politics. The guys at MediaMutters.org note one such case under the headline "Fox Freaks Out Over CVS Ending Sales of Tobacco": On February 5, CVS Caremark announced that it would stop selling cigarettes and other tobacco products at its pharmacy stores by the beginning of October. . . . On Fox´s The Real Story, host Gretchen Carlson approached the CVS decision with suspicion and a remarkably uninformed premise, asking, "Is it OK legally . . . to restrict tobacco availability in a private store

Whether or not legalizing marijuana is a good idea, as a purely descriptive matter it is an idea whose time has come. In 1996 California voters approved Proposition 215, a ballot measure immunizing from prosecution those who use marijuana under a physician´s recommendation. A 2003 state law, drolly titled Senate Bill 420, established a regulatory regime designed to "facilitate the prompt identification of qualified patients . . . in order to avoid unnecessary arrest"--i.e., to make medical marijuana easier to obtain. Since 1996, 19 more states and the District of Columbia have enacted laws to permit medical marijuana, according to ProCon.org.

Ezra Klein is back in line. The Journolist founder, who now runs Wonkblog for the Washington Post, took some flak from other left-liberal journalists last year when he acknowledged that the ObamaCare exchanges had serious technical flaws. But now, as we move into Phase 3 of the ObamaCare failure--the unraveling of its economic assumptions--Klein and his wonkblogger staff are full denial. One result has been an entertaining and informative set of rebuttals from the heterodox liberal blogger Mickey Kaus. It began with a Dec. 17 post by Wonkblog´s Sarah Kliff with the less-reassuring-than-intended title "Why Obamacare Won´t Spiral Into Fiery, Actuarial

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

   

 



 
Harry Reid calls dissident Nevada ranchers

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
