The Government slow-down: A case study in bad faith politics and failed leadership »

by George Landrith The Obama administration continues to play politics and operate in perpetual campaign mode, rather than lead or govern. Obama has shutdown portions of the government and even private property owned by American citizens not because the law requires it, but because he sees a political advantage in doing it and then blaming […]

Federal Spending is the Problem: Defense is Not! »

by George Landrith With a long history of federal overspending and the recent explosion of more federal debt, it is obvious that the federal budget must be cut back to a reasonable size. We need an intervention. But the Budget Control Act — which would force an “automatic sequester” of $500 billion in across-the-board defense […]

The Real Fiscal Cliff »

“After the phony cliff, we face the terrifying one.” by Conrad Black Last week, Fareed Zakaria and Charles Krauthammer appeared in Toronto (where I live much of the time), and while I did not go to their main debate, I went to a tasting of it at a luncheon. There was, I regret to write, […]

Clinton Era Taxes and Clinton Era Spending »

by George Landrith With the budget and fiscal crisis facing the United States and difficult economic times surely ahead for the foreseeable future, President Barack Obama has vociferously argued that Republicans must agree to tax increases. He argues for what he terms are modest tax increases on the wealthiest Americans that are equal to the […]

Fiscal Crisis: Failing the Details, Math and Leadership Tests »

by George Landrith President Barack Obama repeatedly chided Mitt Romney’s budget plan during the presidential campaign on at least two grounds: (1) it lacked detail, and (2) the math didn’t add up.

by George Landrith Barack Obama is nearing the fourth year of his presidency and the economy continues to languish as evidenced by the fact that the unemployment rate “unexpectedly” shot back up and has been above 8 percent for his entire presidency.  The truth is there is nothing “unexpected” about our current economic woes.  In […]

Budget Failures Lead to Economic Woes »

by George Landrith America’s national debt is dangerously close to $16 trillion. This is a staggering figure. It is impossible to comprehend in concrete terms.

Another Day, Another Obama Plan »

Op-Ed from Boston Herald 9/20/11 President Obama is ignoring the first rule of holes — when you’re in one, stop digging.

The Art of Killing Young Life »
