Technically speaking, Republicans do talk, but talking is definitely not their strong suit. Nor do they seem to have put a lot of thought into what they say or how they say it. The net result is that articulate Democrats can get away with the biggest lies, without any serious rebuttal from most Republicans.

In campaign speeches September 17 in the swing state of Ohio, President Obama railed against imported automotive components that are illegally subsidized by the Chinese government. 

Constitutionalists should find fault with Obama’s crusade du jour. His case against China is hypocritical, because his administration is guilty of the very thing he accuses China of (but on an even greater scale). He is after all, the president who claims he saved General Motors. Under his watch, the federal government contributed $76 billion to GM and Chrysler. Doubtless those are government subsidies, and the original total was 76 times greater than the amount Obama claims China kicked in to their automotive industry. 

Obama’s subsidization of the American auto industry — immoral, illogical, and illegal — is just one piece of the gigantic puzzle that shows his non-Americanist ways. He has Chinese-like tendencies, founded upon the preachings of the Communist Manifesto.

 

 

 

 

There was a time when Democrats and Republicans alike could talk sense about tax rates, in terms of what is best for the economy, without demagoguery about "tax cuts for the rich."

They say the economy is moving in the right direction, that we should stay the course, be patient, that it takes time to pull out of the recession that began in late 2007.

In fact, things are getting worse.

After a full day of discussions about public education among a select group of establishment educators and allied think-tank types, the best recommendation they could all come up with is the need for more “effective teachers.” Not to be outdone by the Council on Foreign Relations Task Force on Education, the New York Times, in its second annual conference held on September 13, decided to put its three cents in the ongoing discussions on public education which seem to have attracted the attention of the establishment cognitive elite.
