Words Can't Express ... 

how disappointed I am in Barack Obama as President.

I only caught a smidgen of his press conference today, but I have to say, based on what I did see, that I have never seen such a shameless whine of "it's not my fault" from anyone who purports to be a chief executive. It sounded like a teenager rationalizing a bad test grade to a parent. Pathetic.

The man is not up to the job, but his minions did us all a favor by coining the phrase "leading from behind," because that's what Obama's been doing since Inauguration Day. If he gets reelected, the United States is in grave danger.

Interesting Political Endorsements 

Well, I think that's pretty much the kiss of death for Ron Huntsman.

[This is the first of what I expect will be a series of posts with this title.]

Gestapo Tactics 

Pleading guilty to breaking Godwin's Law, I am concerned about the increasing frequency of stories like those described here.

This sort of thing is right out of a WWII-era movie about the Nazis.

I agree with Glenn Reynolds that police should be strictly liable for damage and injuries they cause in the course of these raids. There are only a few kinds of cases in which these tactics are justified. The rest of the time I think it's just macho cops trying to imitate TV, and the police action violates the Fourth Amendment proscription against unreasonable searches and seizures. I say this as a guy who generally sides with law enforcement.

Hope and Change 

I've repeatedly said in the past that I think Obama wants to turn the United States into pre-Thatcher UK, and once I even agreed that he wants to turn the US into Haiti. But hopenchange continues unabated, and I am coming around to the opinion that he wants to turn the whole country into Detroit, by doing stuff like this.
