Cruising the Web

So what's up with having to count the unborn child of a pregnant woman visiting the White House as a visitor who must be registered? How peculiar is that? Even beyond the irony of the White House of a president who voted against protection of a fetus who survived an abortion requiring the registration of an unborn child, I just can't figure out why they'd even have this peculiar requirement. What are they thinking?

Read back to what Barack Obama said in 2004 in response to questions about why he was against gay marriage. No wonder gay rights activists don't think it's enough to get a wink and a nod from the White House on gay marriage while Obama remains silent.

That experienced expert on foreign affairs, Joe Biden, is now lying about and politicizing the history of our policy on Iran. Contrary to all the evidence, he's stating that there "was virtually no international pressure on Iran. We were the problem. We were diplomatically isolated in the world, in the region, in Europe." That's just a lie as Elliot Abrams ably demonstrates.

Does Obama have any other policy besides verbal chastisement on Syria?

How sweet of Occupy Cleveland members to show in the courthouse to support the five people charged with plotting to blow up a Cleveland bridge. And then they try to pretend that the Occupy movement is not about violence. And how does it help the 99% to blow up a bridge that they might be traveling across? As Rich Lowry writes, this is just a step up from their formerly preferred type of violence - breaking store windows and all of a piece with their desire to simply mess things up.
he romance of confrontation with the police is more central to Occupy than any specific agenda item. The movement welcomes a “diversity of tactics,” which means accepting the masked anarchists who are delighted so long as stuff gets, in the charming words of Wright contemplating his bridge, “f---ed up.”

If the Cleveland Five had been right-wing haters of the government, everyone in America would know their names by now. Instead, they’re a neglected sign of what nastiness lurks in Occupy’s fetid ideological stew.

Obama reverses JFK's principle
of "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country."

David Harsanyi explains why Obama's "to-do" list is so ridiculous.

James Carville is worried. Very worried.
