“It seems like a move in the right direction…if we want to re-strengthen our nation, we cannot continue to throw away young talent that can be useful from decades as productive citizens because of actions that were committed during their regrettable days in the fog of youth.” (McAllister on modifying how the criminal justice system deals with some impacted by “mandatory-minimum” sentencing)

Who’s Zoomin’ Who in 2012?

Over the past 4 years, the Obama Administration has been losing court cases, political capital, and economic momentum, only to ask for passionate support from his key voting blocs in 2012.

Who’s fooling who here?

On the brink of a Contempt of Congress vote against Attorney General Eric Holder and the possible striking down of the individual mandate within – or possibly all of – Obamacare, we have to ask ourselves: who’s fooling who here?

Wasn’t the Obama Presidency supposed to be about a heightened advocacy for the plight of urban America? That hasn’t happened, unless you work for Planned Parenthood or for a union somewhere. Wasn’t the Obama Presidency supposed to be about getting America back to work? That hasn’t happened, unless if work on Wall Street or as a corporate executive. Wasn’t the Obama Presidency supposed to be about improving the dysfunction in Washington and the tone in politics overall? That hasn’t happened, until if you think that the heightened name-calling, partisan-fighting, and civic maliciousness fit into your definition of patriotism and decorum. Wasn’t the Obama Presidency supposed to be about putting the wind at your back, instead of a hand in your face? That hasn’t happened, until if a chilling head wind is your idea of a cool breeze.
