Obama has "Failed the World" and "Lied"
9:29 am est
No, that's not the latest from Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck. It's the subhead of a recent column in Der Spiegel. The columnist compares Obama's promise of hope and change to the administration's non-delivery of climate change legislation
and its impact on the Cophenhagent climate change summit.
Innocents Abroad (and at Home)
Obama bows and the nation cringes
8:08 am est
, writes Wes Prudent with his take on our President's most recent misadventures abroad.
In addition to his bizarre
lapse of protocol, Thomas Sowell writes that the President has also been bowing to world opinion
in his decision to try the 9/11 conspirators in a civilian court in New York, rather than in a military tribunal.
What can account for this combination of bad judgment? When he pitches health care or climate change, one can at least
take account of the domestic constituency this President is trying to please. But apart from handkerchief-wielding college
students at an anti-globalization rally, who is it that this President thinks he is pleasing by bowing to the emperor of Japan
and granting terrorists the right to a civilian trial?
While there is a debate to be had over the method
of dispensing justice to the 9/11 conspirators, the coincidence of the President's horrific bow with the announcement of the
9/11 trial decision makes for an awful picture.

Is ObamaCare Dead on Arrival?
9:18 am est
Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was quoted
as saying the bill was dead on arrival.
"It was bill written by liberals for liberals, and people
like Joe Lieberman
are not going to get anywhere near the House bill . . . It is a nonstarter in the Senate" he said.

A GOP Turnaround?
9:52 am est
Wins in the Virginia and New Jersey gubernatorial races may signal a turnaround for the GOP's prospects. As Dan Balz
writes in the Washington Post: It's not 2008 anymore.
Republicans are now more energized than their Democrat counterparts and the rising tide
of voter unease with the direction of the economy hurts incumbents.
Barring a substantial change in direction and
tone, Republicans should stand to gain seats in both the House and the Senate in 2010, crimping the Democratic majority and
limiting the President's ability to implement legislation in the second half of his first term.
goals the President has set forth himself: Health Care and Climate Change will need to pass Congress before the 2010
elections get underway to have any hope of passing.
