George W. Bush

"Green Line" is Fiction. "Red Line" is Real.

While I’ve never heard former U. S. President George W. Bush described as a prophet, those who are able to recall his "State of the Union" address back on January 29, 2002, may believe that he did have a crystal ball at least for that one brief moment. In that address Bush declared three countries as being evil. In fact, he called them the “Axis of Evil.” Here we are fourteen years later and Bush’s words are appearing as the proverbial “handwriting on the wall.” The three countries he named have not been quiescent but rather are thriving hot beds of terrorist activities and networks. 

Republicans, Pass a Permanent Extension of Bush Tax Cuts, Leave Town, and Have a Merry Christmas

Republicans should let Barack Obama jump off the “fiscal cliff” if he wants, but they can also do something productive for the American taxpayers.  That is why the American people gave them huge majorities in the House of Representatives in both the 112th Congress in 2010 and in the 113th Congress in last month’s election.  The Republicans in the House of Representatives should pass a permanent extension of President George W. Bush’s 2001 and 2003 tax cuts, leave town and have a Merry Christmas.

Newt Gingrich was quoted in a “NewsMax.TV” article on Saturday that he is almost afraid that agreement will be reached to avoid the country from going over the so-called “fiscal cliff,” because “the agreement will be ‘a really bad deal.’”  Remembering past deals such as the one President Ronald Reagan said was one of his worst decisions  --  i.e. Reagan said he would deliver $1 dollar in tax increases for every $3 of federal spending cuts offered by then-Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill  --  Speaker Gingrich said, “I don’t see any evidence that the president is prepared to deliver liberal Democrats in the Senate for any kind of spending cuts that matter.” 

Will Speaker Boehner be a Bob Michel or a Newt Gingrich?

This writer recently wrote a commentary entitled “Will GOP Leaders Become Bob Michelized?”  Unfortunately, during the past couple of weeks, the answer seems to be in the affirmative.  The headline referred to the former Republican House Minority Leader, Congressman Bob Michel, R-IL, who was perfectly content to position his party in the minority for his entire 14 years as GOP leader in the House of Representatives.  That is, until an upstart Republican Congressman from Georgia, Newt Gingrich, warned Michel that he would challenge him for Republican leader during the next congressional leader elections.  Michel promptly announced that he would not run for reelection in 1994.

Meanwhile, because House Minority Whip Gingrich organized a massive and historic issues-oriented campaign during the election of 1994, including a “Contract with America,” he not only became leader of the Republicans in the House of Representatives, but Gingrich became Speaker of the House.

GOP President tells Israel P.M. that he’ll “bomb Syria to kingdom come after my last election”

What a media firestorm that would be.

In the spring of 2004, President George W. Bush was unknowingly caught by an open microphone telling the Israeli Prime Minister in a private meeting that if Israel would hold off on bombing Syria’s nuclear weapons facility, the United States would “bomb Syria to Kingdom come right after my last election” that November.  A lengthy firestorm of protest came from the John Kerry presidential campaign and the liberal media supporting Kerry. 

That did not happen.

However, in real life this week at the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul, Korea, Barack Obama was caught conspiring with the Russian president, Dmitry Medvedev  --  not knowing that there was a live microphone recording their each and every word.  President Medvedev agreed to transmit Obama’s message to the newly-elected Russian president, Vladimir Putin. 

Judge Lamberth is right in ruling that destroying embryos is breaking the law

On Monday, federal judge Royce Lamberth of the U.S. District Court in Washington D.C. correctly ruled that the Obama administration is not obeying the 1996 law which outlawed the destruction of human embryonic stem cells. In March 2009, the president issued an executive order expanding federal funding of human embryo research.

Judge Lamberth ruled that the federal funding by the Obama administration for such research violated a 1996 law prohibiting federal money for research in which an embryo was destroyed. Today's "The Wall Street Journal" reported that opponents of Obama's federal funding for human embryonic stem cell destruction research said that such research "leads to the destruction of the embryo" which "is tantmount to taking a life, and have opposed such experiments on ethical grounds."

In the article, David Stevens, executive director of the Christian Medical Association is quoted as saying: "People forget that each one of us was an embryo, and if someone destroyed us for biological parts, we wouldn't be around today." He also was quoted by LifeNews.com saying, "This case highlights the harm that diverting federal funds away from proven effective research poses to those patients who are waiting for cures. We are grateful that the Court also recognizes the clarity of the law and the harm that funding illegal and unethical embryo-destroying research poses to ethical researchers."

Why does Israel matter to the United States?

The Bible states that those who support Israel are blessed and those who do not are cursed.  Could it be that the presidency of George W.

Where has George W. Bush gone wrong

When President Bush was put into office nearly eight years ago conservatives were delighted to see the change that was coming to the White House.  Many believed that President Bush would help drive the conservative movement forward to new heights.  At first President Bush appeared to be the one to fulfill this as he took charge of the War on Terror and signed into law a bill that banned partial birth abortions.  So where did he and the Republician Congress go wrong?
