  1. Obama hasn’t learned to govern . . . Maureen Dowd

    Thanks for finally noticing what the REST of us already KNEW – and TOLD you about – in 2008…

    I know, Maureen, it’s just those butthead Republicans don’t get the Obama ruling style because they are so un-hip, but at least you’re – finally – demonstrating some acknowledgement of realpolitik yourself, so I suppose we should be grateful Your guy only wants to dictate. He is NOT a leader. Never was. Never WILL be.

    That is a skill that can NOT be picked up in “OJT”. Thanks for finally noticing.

  2. WHAT??? The terrorists did not have licenses to carry guns??? That would mean they obtained them illegally (or they were provided them by foreign agents) and the strict Mass. gun laws had no impact on their ability to kill a police officer.

    Duh.

    • Rick,
      The innuendo is that a legally licensed CCW holder can commit such a heinous act.
      Just like it was ” reported ” that the Sandy Hook shooter was a NRA member, another attempt to smear law abiding citizens.

  3. “George Bush says Jeb’s the best man for the WH . . . Fox News”

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    Aside from the rather RINO stances of the Bushes, there is NO chance of ANYONE named BUSH getting the PRESIDENCY! The whole BUSH thing is SO Pavloved into the low-information-voter that you will get ANY Bush defeated in a landslide, even were he a demonstrable Thatcher wrapped in a Reagan in a fine Churchill sauce!

    As daddy Bush would say,

    “Na Ganna Happen”!

    Nominate Bush – any Bush – = Democrat victory.

    Don’t EVEN bring it up.

    PLEASE!

        • “Keith, Mister Bill has hacked into both cincy and Julie’s IDs!!!!!” – RickW

          And Mr. Sluggo has hacked into The White House itself, at least if results are anything to go by…

          To continue,

          NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

          (deep breath)

          NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • After the huge conservative victory in 2010, I thought we had left the Bushes failed vision of big government “compassionate conservatism” in the dustbin of history. At that time, if anyone suggested that another squishy Republican would be our presidential nominee in 2012, I would have laughed in their face. Here we are again, on the precipice of economic and societal collapse, and the feckless Republican party wants to install another member of the Bush family. I say not only NO, but HELL NO!!! No more political dynasties!!!

        • Rick – only “some” elements? There’s a herd of RINOtsoris roaming Washington.

          RINOtsoris: Republicans who cause problems for conservatives.

        • Liberalism wasn’t always a dirty word, Rick. It’s such a shame how the left has sullied classic liberalism. RINOs are statists hiding behind the cover of conservative values and principles. They are satisfied with playing second fiddle to the Democrat party as long as they get to participate in the plundering of our wealth and theft of our liberty. RINOs must be feeling more emboldened now and are starting to show their true colors. I’m just glad Rubio came out before I donated any more of my hard earned money and time to his campaign.

  4. Am enjoying the articles this AM, it’s like all the LSM waited all weekend to post some new and entertaining reading.

    Reuters and another site are spinning the two terrorist did not have gun permits or state FID cards. Well DUH.. they were criminals, had criminal intent, and were terrorists. Is there a rule book somewhere that says criminals and terrorists need permits for weapons?? for WMD’s?? Comment left by readers hit upon the same lines that we have known for some time, that the Gun Bill would not prevent this kind of activity. Why is it the left can not grasp this??

    Another issue is counter-terrorism efforts. What was put in place after 9-11 to prevent file and forget information gathering has shown to be a failure. Definitely a breakdown somewhere, but not only with the FBI. Dir. of National Intelligence has some work ahead of him.

    • Otis, I think its a Liberal mindset. “Hey, you’re not following my rules. That’s not fair!” People that deviate from the carefully crafted plan (pun intended) cannot be fathomed.

    • He will fly over West TX on way to Dallas in WH Air, wave, and make comment to the media which will be fawn’d over as “Good Job!”
