obama

Two ways

One way to do it:

President Obama has not been able to prepare a budget--despite having an entire Office of Management and Budget devoted to the task, and despite knowing the annual deadline.

Another way:

My women

Where, oh, where are the rugged women of yore who stood toe-to-toe with men and demanded respect and equal treatment? Today,we have the likes of Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown law student who demanded that we all pay her $10 a month for birth control pills and now in the running for Time magazine's person of the year:

Numbers

Nooooo kidding!

President Obama dropped by “The Tonight Show” to chat up Jay Leno on Wednesday as part of his two-day “campaign extravaganza.” Perhaps it’s just two days because counting higher is a bit of a challenge?

Undecided

I agree with just about everybody else in the free world that Mitt Romney won the first debate against President Obama, but I don't think it was quite the beatdown some think it was. Yes, Romney was good, but sometimes the other team helps you win, and Obama was just awful. Republicans in danger of becoming overconfident should remember that the next debate is a town hall format in which the questions will be asked by "undecided voters selected by the Gallup Organization."

From worse to bad

Yes, there is a libertarian case to be made for Mitt Romney:

Obama sees it as his job to add every day to the Rube Goldberg device that Washington has grown into, while simultaneously throwing sand into its gears. If that seems like a contradictory notion, or even a sick notion — it is. But we’ve watched Obama do just that for four years now. How much more can it, can we, take?

A period of transition

This is choice

What do you know? President Obama and I are in complete agreement:

CBS News) CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- President Obama formally accepted the Democratic party's presidential nomination on Thursday night, calling the 2012 election "the clearest choice of any time in a generation."

Gag order

First, we had the news about the Obama team dictating the subjects to be covered by interviews with the "local media." Now he find out Mitt Romney wants to play the same game:

No vets in the running

I guess this isn't a huge deal, but it bothers me a little:

With the now official selection of Paul Ryan as the running mate to Mitt Romney . . . we have the final pairings of the four men running for the highest offices in the land. And for the first time since 1944, not one of them has ever served in the uniform of our country.

. . . and one for all

President Obama -- when he's right, he's right:

How do you respond to criticism that your administration hasn’t done enough to support black businesses?
