Just Wondering


Is Stuttaford watching Smallville, the president’s main competition.

That Riff About Iran...


Will fly around Iran via internet a million times tonight.


The Debate Joined


“[T]he course of this nation does not depend on the decisions of others.” Maybe the most important line he’s uttered so far. The line about different threats requiring different strategies effectively answers 1,000 op-eds from the last two months.

Web Briefing: July 29, 2014



…words to the Iranian people. (I can just hear Michael Ledeen yelling “Faster, please.” at his tv right now…)




As he did last year, Bush links the Iraqi Ba’athists to totalitarianisms past–and reminds us that their evil ambitions are limitless.

Abc Has Been Calling This Shin-Dig...


…”State of the Union /Democratic Response.” As if at least half the viewers are just pacing until the main event from that Locke guy.

Missile Defense


I’m guessing that plenty of viewers don’t quite understand why so few Democrats applaud when the president says we are beginning to defend Americans from ballistic missiles.

Cowboy Time!


Love the, “Let’s put it this way: They’re no longer a threat to America or her allies.”

“One by one the terrorists are learning the meaning of the word justice.”

Great stuff.

Also, it’s about frickin’ time he said we’re winning the war on terror. We are you know. If Iraq has distracted from the war on terror, how come we’ve not had a single terrorist attack since 9/11 and or anthrax?

Nice Phrase


Bush says “we have arrested or otherwise dealt with” many terrorists. A point he underscores a few sentences later. Rumsfeld would have just said “killed.”



…if he keeps this up, he may go down as the Western leader with the most foresight and real leadership on AIDS and Africa. Having that Ugandan doctor there is the perfect touch, even if the likes of Nelson Mandela won’t approve.

Good For Him....


…talking about Africa and AIDS. Not only that, but it seems like the first passion he’s mustered.

Head Count Should Be Taken


On who on the Dem side couldn’t bear stand in opposition to infanticide (partial-birth abortion).



What’s wrong with keeping your hydrogen-powered car clean? A shiny car — no matter the source of its locomotion — is a nice thing.

President For Life


“By caring for children who need mentors, and for addicted men and women who need treatment, we are building a more welcoming society–a culture that values every life. And in this work we must not overlook the weakest among us. I ask you to protect infants at the very hour of birth, and end the practice of partial-birth abortion. And because no human life should be started or ended as the object of an experiment, I ask you to set a high standard for humanity and pass a law against all human cloning.”

No Mention of Anwr


Is he backing away?

Clean Hydrogen Powered Automobiles


I imagine we wouldn’t have been all that impressed if President Gore had come out for this.

He Looks Bad....


According to my bride. She thinks his eyes look puffy and he looks very tired. I’m not sure I see it. But she’s convinced. It has been a rough year for him.

Nancy Pelosi


The concept of Americans keeping their own money evidently makes the Dems’ Leader laugh. That’s what she was doing during that part of the speech.

Tax Cuts


You’d think the Democrats could have stood up for the general idea of them, if not Bush’s specific cuts. They didn’t.

“Murmur, Murmur, Murmur”


I heard Congress say it before the president came into the room. What that means I don’t know. I report, you decide.
