By Joe Gruters Sen. Rand Paul’s filibuster Wednesday was more than political theater. Sure, it undoubtedly gave his political ambitions a boost. But that was not the driving factor behind it, nor should be for any Republicans. In those 13 hours of standing on the Senate floor and controlling his bodily needs, Paul represented what […] more

Breitbart has posted a very simple outline that answers whether President Barry could somehow delay the election or change the date: The Constitution gives Congress sole power regarding the date of the presidential election, and that date is binding on the entire country. Article 2 Section 1 Paragraph 4 of the Constitution: “The Congress may determine […] more

There was a great, short post over at The Weekly Standard today that is certainly worth looking at. So much was said in so little space. “The problem is, America’s Founders wrote the following words (penned at Independence Hall) into our Constitution: “The Congress shall have Power…To establish Post Offices and post Roads.” Meanwhile, Obamacare […] more

Just when I thought my Sunday was going to be boring, even after my Dunkin Donuts coffee, Vice President Dick Cheney shows up on Fox News Sunday and drops the hammer, again, on the left and in specific, on Herr Obama.
Wow, what an interview that was.
When asked about his opinion of Obama, Dick Cheney unleashed: “I wasn’t a fan of his when he got elected, and my views haven’t changed any. I have serious doubts about his policies, serious doubts especially about the extent to which he understands and is prepared to do what needs to be done to defend the nation.” Ouch.
Politico has a good recap of the interview.
“The thing I keep coming back to time and time again, Chris, is the fact that we’ve gone for eight years without another attack,” Cheney said. “Now, how do you explain that? The critics don’t have any solution for that. They can criticize our policies, our way of doing business, but the results speak for themselves.”
He added: “It was good policy. It was properly carried out. It worked very, very well.”
Asked if he thinks “Democrats are soft on national security,” Cheney replied: “I do.”
FoxNews.com recaps the interview as well.
RealClearPolitics.com has 4 minutes of the video.
If you’re a serious addict, Real Clear Politics has posted the transcript of the interview here.
Vice President Cheney’s book is not due to be released until 2011, I’m going to have a tough time waiting that long.
