Now some on the right think Obama says ‘I’ too much. In fact, he doesn’t. But what does it mean that they can’t stand to hear him say it?
He’s all into himself instead of the country he’s supposed to be running. “Count the number of times he uses ‘I’ in any speech, and compare that to any other president,” limns Doctor Krauthammer. “Remember when he announced the killing of Bin Laden?
That speech I believe had 29 references to ‘I’—on my command, I ordered, as Commander-in-Chief I was then told, I this.”But as linguist Mark Liberman notes at Language Log, the president used the word “I” exactly 10 times in that speech. Meanwhile, when Ronald Reagan made a speech in an analogous situation about Lebanon and Grenada, he used “I” exactly, um, 29 times.
Who is Rand Paul?

Paul was not named by his libertarian not Objectivist father Ron Paul. Reportedly, growing up he was called Randy … until his wife shortened the diminutive to Rand.Washington, ordinarily, is committed to maintaining the status quo or making, at best, incremental…
Yet, it seems he has changed his position and has chosen to re-write history.Despite all the evidence pointing to the fact that he has been behind the effort to withdraw all U.S. troops from Iraq,
Obama has now stated multiple times that he had nothing do to with it.
“You know what I just find interesting is the degree to which this issue keeps coming up, as if this was my decision.”

Chuck Baldwin — The Man Who Should Be President…..

Today, I am going to do something that I have never done: I am going to devote virtually my entire column to posting another man’s words. That man is the man who should be President of the United States: Congressman Ron Paul of Texas. The following is a written transcript of a speech Dr. Paul gave on the floor of the US House of Representatives back in 2007. Had Congressman Paul been elected President in 2008, the country would be four years into the greatest economic, political, and, yes, spiritual recovery in the history of America.
As it is, the US is on the brink of totalitarianism and economic ruin. And you can mark it down, four years from now it won’t matter to a tinker’s dam whether Barack Obama or Mitt Romney was elected President this November. Neither man has the remotest understanding of America’s real problems nor the courage and backbone to do anything about it if they did understand.Read the following. This is a man who understands the Constitution.

Curiously sandwiched between Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Black History Month, and with his approval rating diving like the mercury in thermometers, Barack Obama remarked, “There’s no doubt that there’s [sic] some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president.”
A too-early look at the 2016 presidential race: Bet on a dark horse

Of course it’s too early to talk about 2016. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way …
The most interesting dynamic about the presidential race so far is that the Democrats are behaving like Republicans — and vice versa.
Since 1940, with the arguable exception of Barry Goldwater, Republicans have nominated the guy next in line. Thomas Dewey almost beat Wendell Willkie for the nomination in 1940, so in 1944 — and 1948 — it was his turn.
Dwight Eisenhower, whom both parties wanted as their nominee, was a special case, given that whole invading-Europe-and-defeating-Hitler thing.
