Barack Obama said in 2004, when he ran for the U.S. Senate that there was no difference between him and President Bush on the war in Iraq and the war on terror. This was a complete change from his record as a state senator from Illinois, when he was opposed to the Iraq war. When he ran for the U.S. Senate he took the opposition to the war message off his website to cover his tracks. Now he claims to have been consistently opposed to the war. Only his inconsistency is consistent. What's next for the empty suit?

"Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them."

         - Columnist Charley Reese

Charley is a Georgia native, born in Washington, Georgia in 1937. Apparently he was too conservative for the Orlando Sentinel (Slantinel?) which dumped him about five years ago. He's still better than anything they have. It sort of reminds me of Bill Buckley at National Review years back canning Joe Sobran (sobran.com), maybe the best of the national columnists.

" Federal judges have a lifetime appointment which means this is like the blind date from Hell - it has no end in sight."

         -  Bryanna Bevens on VDare.com

Always remember - Federal judges are life-tenured. Jimmy Carter didn't make any Supreme Court appointments but he loaded the federal courts with lifetime liberals. They're still there. He never appointed a conservative to anything, but was hyped by big media as a "Southern conservative" when he ran for president.

Good question posed by columnist William Rusher, writing on the global warming scare. He wants to know: whatever became of the ozone hole and acid rain? Remember those?

"Every few years, some group of scientists, egged on by the media, is persuaded to warn mankind of some new danger facing the human race. The excitement dies down in due course, but there is always some new peril being discovered."
