Cruising the Web

The National Republican Senate Committee has put out a pointed ad in answer to all the Democrats who criticize the Republicans for being extreme. Just which party is on the majority in many of the heated issues of our day?

After all these years and billions lost, Barney Frank is starting to make some sense on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Patrick Fitzgerald does not have an admirable record
in his pursuit of prominent cases. And he has an unfortunate habit of giving press conferences that go beyond what he can actually prove.

Enough already with President Obama's supposed "teachable moments."

Even Margaret Carlson seems a bit tired of Obama's dismissive attitude of superiority to those lesser mortals who don't see things as he does while Aaron Goldstein finds Obama downright petulant.

Here's a typical story about the Obama administration claiming credit and expecting applause for something for which it did nothing.

Victor Davis Hanson explains the "cynical brilliance" of Feisal Abdul Rauf to have initiated this controversy over his Muslim Center near Ground Zero in just the perfect way so that liberals in the U.S. would all jump to attention to defend him while his Muslim allies in the rest of the world would perceive something totally different. He's got westerners convinced that he's all about tolerance and understanding while radical Islamists will see a "message of Islamic triumphalism." It's all quite a masterstroke playing into westerners' self-deception about radical Islam and President Obama's desire to wade into this controversy to dispense his professorial wisdom.
