Capitalist Bill Clinton Speaks Out

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, September 22, 2011

Who would have ever thought Bill Clinton would make Robert Ringer look good?  But, coming on the heels of my article this week about the possibility that Hillary could conceivably challenge Obama (see “The Revenge of the HillBillies”), Bill Clinton’s interview with Christopher Ruddy, CEO and founder of Newsmax, did just [...]

President Pinocchio at It Again

By Robert Ringer - Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Listening to Obama tell yet another whopper — that “the rich” pay lower tax rates than the serf class — I am reminded of Ronald Reagan’s oft-used line in debating Jimmy Carter in 1980 and Walter Mondale in 1984:  “There you go again.” BHO keeps insisting that “Warren Buffett’s secretary shouldn’t [...]

George Washington and the Babblemeister on Taxes

By Robert Ringer - Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Babblebama was at it again Monday, stumbling around the Rose Garden (Or was it that make-believe organic garden that Michelle Obama probably never quite got around to working in?) and invoking the words of … Rev. Jeremiah Wright?  Nope.  Louis Farrakhan?  Nope.  George Soros?  Nope, not him, either — but close. [...]

What would we do without FEMA?

By Robert Ringer - Sunday, September 18, 2011

Last Friday, I happened to catch my favorite socialist, Ralph Nader, on Neil Cavuto’s show.  Although I disagree with Nader on 90 percent of the issues, I’ve always liked him because he’s consistent in his beliefs.  He’s sort of a left-wing version of Ron Paul — never wavering, never backing off [...]

On Loving Truth

By Robert Ringer - Friday, September 16, 2011

As execution day … oops, I mean “election day” … draws ever closer, never-say-die Democrats are digging deep into their spin chests to come up with sound bites and talking points in an effort to convince voters that things are rosier than ever in Leftland. There’s a tendency for some to [...]

Obama Not “In Over His Head”

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, September 15, 2011

It both annoys and amazes me that a majority of Americans — including many so-called conservative commentators — still take Barack Obama to be a serious, well-meaning individual who is simply “in over his head.”  I might actually agree with that assessment if he were just another liberal politician.  But he’s [...]

Republican Debates Keep Getting Uglier

By Robert Ringer - Wednesday, September 14, 2011

A barn burner of a debate Monday night on CNN — some vicious attacks, booing from the crowd, and experts differing on who won. Personally, I thought Mitt Romney looked small when he once again refused to give Rick Perry any credit for being governor of the number-one job-creating state in [...]

And the Beat Goes On

By Robert Ringer - Tuesday, September 13, 2011

There’s something about Tim Pawlenty that never rang true with me — and apparently with a large number of tea-party Republicans as well.  First, he attacked Mitt Romney for his Massachusetts healthcare plan, christening it “Obamneycare.”  But when he had the opportunity to confront Romney on it at the first Republican [...]

The Royalty Club USA on Display

By Robert Ringer - Saturday, September 10, 2011

When that innocuous old bloke suddenly appeared out of nowhere Thursday evening to boldly announce to the Congress, “Mr. Speaker, the president of the United States,” followed by thunderous cheering and applause, laughter, hugging, ad nauseam, it reminded me that I was watching the royalty of this country in yet another [...]

Ron Paul Wins NBC Debate Poll

By Robert Ringer - Friday, September 9, 2011

According to a poll conducted by NBC News Political Unit Poll, the guy whom Bill O’Reilly referred to prior to Wednesday’s Republican debate as “a loon” and Dick Morris dismissed as the only candidate who had no chance of winning, 174,354 Americans not only believed Ron Paul won the debate at [...]

Making Nice to BHO, Romney Style

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, September 8, 2011

I’m concerned about talk that the theme of choice for GOP candidates is going to be that “Obama doesn’t have a clue.”  It’s a blatantly false statement, and it only aids the media in its relentless attempt to gloss over the things about Obama’s past and present that the really clueless [...]

Is it time to put America above politics?

By Robert Ringer - Saturday, September 3, 2011

It’s pretty bad when a president’s speeches have become so predictable that people are bored in advance and sponsors of the Packers-Saints game already know that winning the ratings game on September 8 is a slam dunk.  But with his gray matter still hopelessly entangled in an ideology that has failed [...]

Will Hillary Take the Plunge?

By Robert Ringer - Friday, September 2, 2011

As the polls are increasingly catching up to where the tea party already was at least two years ago, “The Clinton Question” is back again:  Will Hillary challenge the arrogant kid from the south side of Chicago who stole the Democratic nomination from her in 2008 and snuck into the White [...]

How about a Black Self-Responsibility Caucus?

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, September 1, 2011

There is increasing evidence that the far left is becoming ever more panicked by the thought of tea-party motivated Republicans taking control of the executive branch and both houses of Congress in 2012.  That would be just four years after the nation celebrated the anointment of the Manger Baby from the [...]

Setting a Trap for Weak Republicans

By Robert Ringer - Tuesday, August 30, 2011

Establishment Beltway types are all atwitter at the news that Barack Obama has appointed Princeton University professor Alan Krueger to head up the Council of Economic Advisers.  In an article about the appointment, the Bloomberg “editorial staff” referred to Obama’s decision as “an inspired one.”  You know, the kind of inspiration [...]

Mike Wallace Takes on Ayn Rand

By Robert Ringer - Monday, August 29, 2011

Voice of Sanity reader Chris Anderson recently gave me a heads up on a link to Mike Wallace’s 1959 television interview with Ayn Rand — her first ever interview on the tube.  To put the time period in perspective, Wallace was smoking a cigarette during the entire interview, an offense that [...]

Irresponsible and Unpatriotic x 13

By Robert Ringer - Saturday, August 27, 2011

Now that the Department of Health and Human Services has admitted that the immigration status of migrant farm workers will not be checked before they are given free health care at sixty-seven community health centers throughout the country, it would be refreshing if Barack Obama would come right out and admit [...]

Could This Be Chris Christie’s Last Chance?

By Robert Ringer - Friday, August 26, 2011

Dick Morris made an excellent point about Chris Christie in his video lunch chat on Friday.  It’s Morris’ belief that no matter how insistent Chris Christie has been in the past about not running for president, he really needs to give it serious consideration. The reason for this is that so [...]

Preparing for More BHO BS

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, August 25, 2011

In my 1982 book How You Can Find Happiness During the Collapse of Western Civilization, I cheered up readers with the following assurances: As day follows night, there are predictable consequences and sociopolitical actions that spring from a desires-are-rights society. In reality, the doom-and-gloom books have done little more than point [...]

Who, exactly, is Sarah Palin?

By Robert Ringer - Tuesday, August 23, 2011

It will be interesting to see if Sarah Palin gets in the race in the next week or so.  For months I’ve been skeptical about her running, but her talk and actions of late lead me to believe it’s possible that she’ll take a leap into the Putrid & Polluted Political [...]

Demanding an Inconsequential Government

By Robert Ringer - Monday, August 22, 2011

At a recent rally in New Hampshire, Mitt Romney said (in referring to Barack Obama), “That, in my view, is a president who has not succeeded in doing the number-one job a president has to do, which is to get this economy going again.”  Sorry, Mitt, but you got that wrong. [...]

Janeane Garofalo, Bull Connor, and the Klan

By Robert Ringer - Saturday, August 20, 2011

Okay, I give up.  Will someone please tell me who in the hell Janeane Garofalo is?  Alright, I won’t deny that I just looked her up on Wikipedia, but I’m still puzzled by why the media became so fixated with her after Barack Obama smooth-talked his way into the White House.  [...]

The Phenomenon of “Underemployment”

By Robert Ringer - Friday, August 19, 2011

I never cease to be amazed at the meaningless terms the media and the government manage to come up with.  One that has gotten a lot of attention since BHO began implementing his strategy to destroy the U.S. economy is “underemployment.” We keep hearing estimates in the range of 10 percent, [...]

Warren, please: Shut up!

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, August 18, 2011

As much as I dislike being harsh to my elders, sometimes you just can’t control yourself.  That said, though I mean no disrespect to the man, I have to get something off my chest that I’ve wanted to say to Warren Buffett for at least two decades:  Warren, will you please [...]

The Mistake of Selling Obama Short

By Robert Ringer - Tuesday, August 16, 2011

When the media installed Barack Obama as president of the United States, not just by refusing to vet him, but by actually repressing damning information about his past that was well known to informed voters, Obama knew he would have to move fast to carry out the dreams from his father. [...]

Reading the Iowa Straw Poll Results

By Robert Ringer - Monday, August 15, 2011

I was happy to see Michele Bachmann win the Iowa Straw Poll Saturday.  Like every other candidate (and, for that matter, every other human being), she’s not perfect, but she’s smart, tough, principled, and genuine. The win definitely adds momentum to Bachmann’s campaign, but how important it will be six months [...]

Buffet versus Rogers

By Robert Ringer - Sunday, August 14, 2011

Warren Buffett recently told Bloomberg television that Standard & Poor’s was wrong to downgrade the United States from AAA to AA +.  He opined that, if anything, the country merits a “quadruple A” rating. Cheerleader Buffett went on to say that he doesn’t believe we are headed for a “new recession.”  [...]

The War Wisdom of Ron Paul

By Robert Ringer - Saturday, August 13, 2011

Ron Paul took a lot of heat in Thursday’s Republican presidential debate when he called for bringing American troops home from our endless foreign adventures, and even said that Iran’s developing a nuclear bomb is none of our business.  I’m not 100 percent in alignment with Ron when it comes to [...]

Why the Left Never Learns

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, August 11, 2011

One of my favorite quotes is from Richard Bach’s The Bridge Across Forever. In writing about how each new learning experience makes the next bump in the road that much easier, Bach wrote, “That’s what learning is, after all:  not whether we lose the game, but how we lose and how [...]

The real S&P message: Congress and the president can’t be trusted.

By Robert Ringer - Tuesday, August 9, 2011

Now that S&P’s inevitable downgrade has finally arrived, Democrats have already begun the projection game.  The game is pretty simple.  You just take whatever you’ve done wrong and blame it on the other side.  The left has been doing this since at least the days of Lenin.  It’s corny; it’s childish; [...]

In Search of a Barry Goldwater

By Robert Ringer - Sunday, August 7, 2011

Barry Goldwater said so many great things that reading his books is like being treated to a buffet of classic quotes.  I just happened to be thumbing through his 1976 work, The Coming Break-Point, and it’s almost eerie in light of what is happening today to our country. Said Goldwater: “To [...]

Agreeing with John Kerry on Censorship

By Robert Ringer - Saturday, August 6, 2011

Yesterday, Massachusetts Senator John Kerry (D) appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, once again outdoing himself when it comes to making preposterous statements.  Kerry opined that too much of the national discussion about politics is guided by the media’s giving equal air time to all, even if the ideas being discussed are [...]
