Obamacare is only a symptom.

Whether articulated in these terms or not, what we are seeing is what happens when a small number of elites presume to impose upon us their priorities at the expense of those of the majority.

Why do the Dems get a pass on the “shutdown?”

If journalism were functioning in America, the reporting would go beyond the ‘gotcha’ politics of the moment and would drill down into the actual substance of what separates the parties.

Boehner digs in.

One might forgive the president for standing firm on Obamacare, his signature legislative achievement. But there can be no forgiving his intransigence with respect to the rest of the federal budget.

Jabba vs. Mt. Rushmore.

That the vast majority of federal spending proceeds apace during what is laughingly called a shutdown is testament to the fact that federalism as envisioned by the founders has long slipped its constitutional moorings.

You will not hear anyone in the mainstream media say that making a policy demand as government funding is about to run out is a perfectly legitimate prerogative of elected legislators.

Senate Democrats refused to continue funding the government because they do not want to be subject to Obamacare – a law that they imposed upon the rest of us.

Sen. Cruz has reminded us that there is not a single Republican fingerprint on the abomination that is Obamacare. Not one. On a measure of such scope, it’s unprecedented.

Obamacare is so poorly conceived that it cannot ever actually function. The process of recognizing that fact and correcting it is now underway.

It’s not going to just “work out.”

Among those that still support Obamacare, the talking point has become, “What if it all just works out?” And thus we arrive at the pass at which the entire rationale for annexing one-sixth of the U.S. economy is reduced to wishful thinking.

For the first time in a lifetime, a liberal president will bear clear and undeniable responsibility for the results of his own liberal policies.

The president’s objective on Tuesday was to make the case for using military force in response to those chemical weapon attacks and toward that goal, he accomplished nothing.

On the wane.

Forces for good in the world – the United States, Britain, France, NATO – are losing power and influence. The forces for evil – al-Qaeda, Russia, Iran – are gaining power and influence.

For the first time since Lord North in 1782, the British House of Commons has denied a prime minister the authority to enter a war. That it is a "war" proposed by Barack Obama of the United States is testament to how far the U.S. has fallen.

If you had to point to a single moment in which it began to become possible for a black man to be elected President of the United States, you would have to say it was in the afternoon of August 28, 1963.

It goes almost without saying that if three white adolescents killed a young black man and cited “boredom” and “the fun of it” as justification, the outcry from the media, left-leaning pundits and the professional race industry would be deafening.
