By Guy Benson / Town Hall As you may recall, we tend to reserve the “pure gold” descriptor for uniquely egregious instances of Obama hypocrisy.  This one surely qualifies.  American Commitment clips a stump speech snippet from 2008 presidential candidate Barack Obama, scrupulous defender of our constitutional structure, and righteous critic of executive power grabs.  Behold: “I taught constitutional law for […]

“There is no education in the second kick of a mule,” said Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. With some such thought in mind, Speaker John Boehner strode to the floor of the House to offer a “clean” debt ceiling bill and relied on Nancy Pelosi’s Democrats to pass it.

David Grunfeld, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune When Ray Nagin left office in mid-2010 after a disastrous second term as mayor, the focus was mainly on his failure to lead New Orleans’ post-Katrina recovery.
