He was elected on a promise to turn away from the austerity policies that killed Europe’s brief, inadequate economic recovery. Since the intellectual justification for these policies was weak and would soon collapse, he could have led a bloc of nations demanding a change of course. But it was not to be. Once in office, Mr. Hollande

Comments:
For the "Really?" file. So French government has a problem because they don´t spend enough? You have to hand it to the Times... with morons like Gail Collins (token female) and Charles Blow (token black) and Frank Bruni (token homo) even the white males on staff are idiots.

France´s Hollande demonstrates that Socialism is, yet again, a failure in the real world, (even if not in Krugman´s world).

Krugman demonstrates that the Nobel Committee, yet again, is clueless.

Next stop for France is communism or fascism. More likely ISIS will take control.

Michelle Obama: ´Being Married

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper    Original Article

First Lady Michelle Obama visited sick children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, where she complained about living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and being married to the president of the United States. She made the comments in response to being asked about her "favorite part about being in the White House." "About being in the -- about being First Lady is being able to do stuff like this, really. And it is so special for me to get to meet kids like you guys," Michelle Obama started. "Because sometimes living in the White House and being married to the

Remember When ESPN Was About Sports?
Washington Free Beacon, by Larry O´Conner    Original Article

September should be a great time of year for sports fans. Baseball pennant races getting dramatic. College football already in top form. NFL finally on every channel every other day of the week. And, of course, Fantasy Football in full swing. It should be a time when Xs and Os are over analyzed and team passions are on full display. Instead, this weekend was all about substance abuse, spanking, and domestic abuse. And ESPN is loving it. Because addressing these weighty topics makes them feel so very important. NFL analyst (and former NFL wide receiver) Cris Carter was nearly in tears giving us a

Rosie O’Donnell Returns to ‘The

The last person who thought Rosie O’Donnell would ever return to “The View” was Rosie O’Donnell. In the spring of 2007, the talk show host opted not to renew her contract with the gabfest created by Barbara Walters, even though her controversial opinions gave the program a ratings boost. Then, shortly before her departure, she got caught in a spectacular fight on live TV with conservative co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck that started over the Iraq War, but quickly turned personal — and went viral.

Adrian Peterson turned himself in early Saturday morning, FOX NFL Insider Jay Glazer reported , after authorities in Texas issued an arrest warrant for the star Minnesota Vikings running back on a charge of child abuse for using a branch to spank his son. Peterson surrendered to authorities in Montgomery County and was released on a $21,000 bond, according to Glazer. However, Peterson has been benched for Sunday’s game against New England. Peterson’s attorney, Rusty Hardin, said that the charge accuses Peterson of using a branch, or switch, to spank one of his sons, whose age was not disclosed but was widely

Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions singled out Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg on Wednesday for taking jobs away from American workers and giving them to immigrants to drive down his company´s costs. Sessions, a Republican who is known for his fierce opposition to amnesty for illegal immigrants, railed on the Senate floor against Zuckerberg and other Democrats backing executive action by the president and legislation authored by the Gang of Eight that would increase the number of guest worker permits. ´The “masters of the universe” are very fond of open borders as long as these open borders don’t extend to their gated compounds and

No, it’s not the Onion, it is Bill Maher on the Charlie Rose show pointing out the difference between Islam and Christianity. He is responding to President Obama’s assertion that there is no relationship between Islam and Islamism: Maher: There are illiberal beliefs that are held by vast numbers of Muslim people – Rose: A vast number of Christians too. Maher: No, that’s not true. Not true. Vast numbers of Christians do not believe that if you leave the Christian religion you should be killed for it. Vast numbers of Christians do not treat women as second class citizens. Vast numbers of Christians

Former Republican Florida governor Jeb Bush will hit Illinois, Florida and Michigan in a tour of GOP campaign events over the next several weeks. As the Washington Examiner detailed, Bush will make three high-profile appearances this month and next: a campaign stop with Illinois gubernatorial hopeful Bruce Rauner in Chicago on September 18; a September 23 fundraiser in Florida for five competitive Republican Senate candidates including hawkish Arkansas prospect Tom Cotton; and an up to $5,000 per head fundraising gala for Michigan governor Tom Snyder in October.

It’s a tough time to be a concerned citizen. The truth of the matter is, the job has always been messy. But it’s way worse when the subject is foreign policy. We gathered around our TVs and computers and peered at our smartphones Wednesday night to hear President Obama explain his plan for combating ISIS, even though we have pretty much lost faith in plans when it comes to the United States involvement in the Middle East. He sounded very strong. And, really, that’s something. We’d have been happy to come away just saying something like “he appeared to believe he’s on the

Baltimore Ravens Owner Acknowledges

Baltimore Ravens owner Stephen Bisciotti wrote a letter to the team´s fans and sponsors Tuesday, addressing the team´s handling of the Ray Rice situation and stating that the Ravens could have handled things differently. "First, let us say that we did not do all we should have done and no amount of explanation can remedy that," Bisciotti wrote in the letter, which was posted on the team´s website. Rice and his then-fiancee, Janay Rice, were involved in a Feb. 15 altercation in an Atlantic City hotel elevator. The Ravens initially supported Rice following the incident, but terminated the running back´s

As he mulls a presidential run in 2016, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush´s friends and associates are urging top Republican fundraisers and strategists to avoid throwing their lot in with another candidate until Bush makes a decision. "Before you do anything, let us know," was how one GOP insider described the message from Bush´s team to the Wall Street Journal. Bush´s associates aren´t actively contacting potential supporters, the Journal reports, but they are answering inquiries from fundraisers and strategists

Oversight chairman Rep. Darrell Issa pledged Thursday evening that the Obama administration’s top Obamacare official must testify to Congress about a July security breach at HealthCare.gov. The federal Obamacare website was hacked into in July, The Wall Street Journal first reported Thursday. No personal consumer information was extracted from HealthCare.gov, but the “malicious attack” inserted malware into a weak part of the website that will help the hackers to attack other websites. Now, Republican Rep. Darrell Issa wants Marilyn Tavenner, head of the Obamacare agency the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, to finally testify before Congress

Reaction to NBC’s Luke Russert being added as a regular face to “Meet the Press” is getting the reaction one might expect: People are "angry." “Morning Joe’s” Joe Scarborough will also have a regular role on the panel. The show is reportedly trying to add a conservative view. New York Post‘s Page Six popped the news late Wednesday night. Gawker‘s Hamilton Nolan wasted no time trashing him, calling him ”basically just a dim 29-year-old dude.” He predicted MTP will now be a “landfill full of the most useless NBC personalities.” A sampling from the Twitter masses: “I don’t think I’ve

First Lady Michelle Obama proudly defended her husband’s record at a Washington, D.C. fundraiser, reminding the attendants how far the country had come since the Obamas entered the White House. “Just think about how different our country looks to children growing up today,” she said. “Think about how our kids take for granted that a black person or a woman can be President of the United States.” She also praised President Obama for changing history on gay marriage and the Supreme Court. “They take it for granted that for the first time in history, there are three brilliant women serving

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, one of the masterminds behind Obamacare, has now explained that he wishes to die at age 75. In an article in The Atlantic, Emanuel writes, “Seventy-five. That’s how long I want to live: 75 years.” He explains that his daughters disagree; so do his brothers and his friends. But, he says, “I am sure of my position…here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss. It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

Congress is living in an "evidence-free zone" as it debates issues of equal pay and family-friendly work policies, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday. "Unfortunately, reality is not always the context in which these decisions are made. The Congress increasingly -- despite the best efforts of my friends and others -- is living in an evidence-free zone," she said during a roundtable discussion at the Center for American Progress focused on women´s issues. "What the reality is, in the lives of Americans is so far from the minds of too many who don´t place the highest priority" on

The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground. However, Obama just discovered his pre-midterm election method of wagging the dog -- distracting from his incompetent and dangerous response (or lack thereof) to the real threats to America’s national security

The U.S Senate passed a bill Thursday evening that will give President Barack Obama the authority to arm moderate Syrian rebels, which is a key part of his plan to fight the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL). Shortly after the Senate passed the bill, which was passed by the House on Wednesday, Obama spoke from the White House. "I´m pleased that Congress, a majority of Democrats and a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate, have now voted to support a key element of our strategy," Obama said.

On Thursday In a session with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) whether America was at war in Iraq and Syria. (Video) Kerry responded: “If you’re more comfortable calling it a war against this enemy of Islam then please do so. We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam. However, strange bedfellows arise if the Obama administration so chooses to uphold Kerry’s claim that we are at war with the enemy(s) of Islam. The following displays that Secretary

A man who’s a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better political director than his political directors, and who knows more about policy than his policy advisors must surely also be a better general than his generals, no? The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. The requirements for strikes in Syria against the extremist group Islamic State will be far more stringent than those targeting

What was the Islamic State thinking? We know it is sophisticated in its use of modern media. But what was the logic of propagating to the world videos of its beheadings of two Americans (and subsequently a Briton) — sure to inflame public opinion? There are two possible explanations. One is that these terrorists are more depraved and less savvy than we think. They so glory in blood that they could not resist making an international spectacle of their savagery — after all, they proudly broadcast their massacre of Shiite prisoners — and did not quite fathom how such a

The failed Scottish vote to pull out from the United Kingdom stirred secessionist hopes for some in the United States, where almost a quarter of people are open to their states leaving the union, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll found. Some 23.9 percent of Americans polled from Aug. 23 through Sept. 16 said they strongly supported or tended to support the idea of their state breaking away, while 53.3 percent of the 8,952 respondents strongly opposed or tended to oppose the notion.The urge to sever ties with Washington cuts across party lines and regions, though Republicans and residents of rural Western
