Obama's Plunge 

One year ago Barack Obama had just defeated Mitt Romney to win his second presidential term. Basking in the glow of victory, his spirits sky-high, Obama would grab the Washington Post, and see a front page poll that brought him even more cheer. When asked who they trusted to do a better job coping with the problems the nation faced, the American people chose Obama over Republicans in Congress by an astonishing 50 to 35 percent.

Backlash To Ryan Deal Grows 

Is the Ryan-Murray budget deal going to die in the Senate? It’s entirely possible. The budget deal gets $6 billion of its “savings” by implementing cuts in military retirees' pensions. Republican senators are not happy, and more of them are announcing that, because of the cuts, they will vote “No.” Veterans of Foreign Wars has come out strongly against the provision.

The Dog That Didn’t Bark 

It has been 24 hours since the Ryan-Murray deal hit Washington, and, as I feared, conservatives are forming their usual circular firing squad in attacking the deal. House Minority leader John Boehner lashed out at conservative groups with over-the-top rhetoric. Meanwhile, Texas Senator Ted Cruz called the deal “deeply concerning,” and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul called its increased funding “shameful.”

How Low Can He Go? 

Late last month, President Obama quipped about his low approval ratings, “[T]he good thing about when you're down is that usually you got nowhere to go but up.” But Obama’s statement was premature at best. 

A new Quinnipiac University poll finds the president’s approval rating has dipped to 38 percent among registered voters, with barely one in three approving of Obama’s actions on health care and only four in ten approving of his Iran policy.

The Obamacaid Time Bomb 

You might have noticed that the liberal media are peddling a new Obamacare narrative: the Obamacare website, healthcare.gov, is up and working and getting better every day. But the real problem with Obamacare is not that the website didn’t work but rather that the program to which the site is a portal is fundamentally flawed.

Nelson Mandela, RIP 

Nelson Mandela, who passed away yesterday at the age of 95, was an extraordinary man. He led the fight against the odious system of apartheid in South Africa, spent 27 years in prison and emerged from that ordeal to become the first black leader of his country.

Barack Bows To Beijing 

When China recently attempted to assert control over the Senkaku Islands, claimed by Japan, by arbitrarily extending an air defense zone over the islands, America's initial response was the correct one: We sent two B-52s flying through the air space. 

But today Foreign Policy reports that signals from leading officials at the White House and the Pentagon indicate that Obama is once again backing down.

"We Are Less Safe" 

There was a very disturbing discussion on CNN's Sunday talk show "State of the Union." The guests were Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Representative Mike Rogers (R-MI), the respective chairmen of the Senate and House Intelligence Committees. The topic was terrorism, and I suspect most folks (including those in the media) simply tuned it out during the holiday weekend. But what Feinstein and Rogers had to say was alarming.
