Pink Shoes For Bush

  • 1:43 pm Tuesday, December 16th, 2008 by Jamie Dupree

Give it up for the ladies at Code Pink, the women’s anti-Iraq war group.  They have a good imagination, and today they’ll put it to use again in Washington, D.C. A couple of days after that Iraqi journalist threw his shoes at President Bush, the Code Pinkies will be outside …

The Obama Conspiracy Rolls On, Part 2

  • 1:34 pm Tuesday, December 16th, 2008 by Jamie Dupree

It was so much fun to read all the comments on my blog from yesterday about the Obama Citizenship Conspiracy.  So I thought I’d take another shot at it today to see what we can stir up. For many, the conspiracy obviously starts with Obama, but lets think of how …

Change In The Senate

  • 10:01 am Tuesday, December 16th, 2008 by Jamie Dupree

With reports that Sen. Ken Salazar of Colorado is heading into the Obama Cabinet, we get to chalk up the departure of yet another lawmaker from the Congress.  I mean, who needs term limits? Two years ago in the 2006 elections, there were 10 new Senators elected.  Since then, we …

Auto Bailout Still Moving Forward

  • 7:21 pm Monday, December 15th, 2008 by Jamie Dupree

The White House made clear on Monday that while the deal isn’t finished, the Bush Administration is going to offer emergency aid to General Motors and Chrysler, to keep those two companies from going belly up. The talk is that GM would get $8 billion in emergency loans, while Chrysler …

The Need For Leadership

  • 5:07 pm Monday, December 15th, 2008 by Jamie Dupree

Nothing demonstrates the need for better leadership in both political parties than the current state of the federal budget, as both parties barely nibble around the edges of the problem. On Monday, the Bush Administration released another report on the federal budget which contained one dynamite sentence: “Medicare, Medicaid, and …

The Obama Conspiracy Rolls On

  • 1:15 pm Monday, December 15th, 2008 by Jamie Dupree

For the third time this month, the U.S. Supreme Court has rejected a lawsuit that sought to stay the results of the November elections because of concerns over Barack Obama’s citizenship. The latest case was brought by a Connecticut man who claims that Obama was a British subject when born …

From the White House Pool

  • 9:28 pm Sunday, December 14th, 2008 by Jamie Dupree

To me, the most interesting part of a secret overseas trip by a President is not what happens when he gets to the destination, but how the press keeps it secret in the interim. President Bush has taken several trips to Iraq that were kept secret because of security concerns.  …

The Battle of the Capitol Tours

  • 9:01 pm Sunday, December 14th, 2008 by Jamie Dupree

Back in the 1990’s, Sen. Bob Graham of Florida proposed that Disney be hired to revamp the way that tours of the U.S. Capitol were given to the public.  That went nowhere, but we’re still fighting over how best to do it. The fight is escalating again now that the …

No Auto Bailout – Yet

  • 6:39 pm Sunday, December 14th, 2008 by Jamie Dupree

If General Motors and Chrysler were “banking” on quick action by the White House to give them money to stay afloat that hasn’t happened – yet. “Size, timing of auto bailout uncertain,” read the headline on the Detroit Free Press web site, which may soon be the only place to …

“Audience Interruption”

  • 6:36 pm Sunday, December 14th, 2008 by Jamie Dupree

At first, I was going to write a blog entry about the usual deception that the White House goes through when President Bush secretly flies to visit Iraq.  But then it morphed into something else. That ‘something else’ was an Iraqi journalist who decided to throw each of his shoes …
