‘It’s sort of touching the way Obama believes in the power of his rhetoric.’
OBAMA: “We’re not going back” to that horrible time when 87% of Americans were happy with their health insurance.
PEGGY NOONAN BEGINNING TO WONDER if Obama’s as smart as he was cracked up to be.
SHOCKER: Despite improvements, Obamacare website would still be a private sector failure.
SURVEY SAYS: Dems Are The Out Of Touch Extremists. If they didn’t have the media flying cover for them, they’d be getting 30% of the vote. Which suggests where people ought to be focusing their resources. .
QUESTION: If Obama Ignores The Law, Why Shouldn’t The Rest Of Us? Because he took an oath to faithfully execute the law — and you didn’t, peons!

ROGER SIMON: The First Hippie President.
We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not in the slightest. That was a masquerade —
pace Bill Ayers, the Chicago Seven, the Weathermen, et al. — “by any means necessary.” “Burn, baby, burn” whether you were white or black. As Jonah Goldberg eloquently pointed out in his brilliant book, hippie culture was part and parcel of “liberal fascism.”
Which accounts for a lot of where we are today. Trust a hippie to negotiate with the mullahs and trust a hippie, yet more incredibly if reports are true, to negotiate with Hezbollah.
Of course, most of us grew out of it. Obama, however, was late to the party and, like many latecomers, didn’t quite see it for what it was.
Sure he did. Like many others, he saw it as an opportunity.
