Volume 27 -- August 18, 2011

Welcome to this week's Victory Insider, your weekly round-up of news, views, and information for staying up to speed on recent developments in Washington, the unfolding 2011-2012 election cycle, and GOP efforts to stop the Obama Agenda and return commonsense and responsibility to American government.

In this week's installment:

Obama's Debt-End Bus Tour
As Barack Obama toured the Midwestern states hit so hard by his disastrous handling of the economy, the RNC was there to make sure he didn't get away with shirking the blame.  (Amanda Carey, "RNC Dubs Obama's Midwest Trip the 'Debt-End Bus Tour' in New Campaign," The Daily Caller, 8/14/2011)

Wisconsin Win
Chairman Reince Priebus comments on Wisconsin voters' rejection of Big Labor's effort to undo Republican reforms in Madison.  (Michael Short, "RNC Chairman Priebus Statement on the Wisconsin Recall Elections,", 8/10/2011)

ObamaCare Mandate Strikes Out
"A federal appeals court has ruled that the national health care law's individual mandate is unconstitutional, calling it 'an unprecedented exercise of congressional power.'"  (Philip Klein, "Appeals Court Strikes Down Obamacare Mandate," Washington Examiner, 8/12/2011)

It's Obama's Economy
"It is an understatement to say that President Obama now owns the bad economy. He and his minions are actually creating and perpetuating it, policy by policy, decision by decision."  (Henry I. Miller, "It's Now Obama's Economy,", 8/11/2011)

Sinking Fast
"New data posted Sunday shows that 39% of Americans approve of Obama's job performance, while 54% disapprove. Both are the worst numbers of his presidency."  (Michael A. Memoli, "Gallup: Obama Job Rating Sinks Below 40% For First Time," Los Angeles Times, 8/14/2011)

Fellow Travelers
Mainstream media allies of leftist Illinois Senator Dick Durbin sweep journalist's effort to challenge ludicrous attack on Tea Party under the rug.  (Bill Kelly, "Did Media Cover Up Sen. Durbin's Confrontation With Reporter? (VIDEO)," Washington Times, 8/11/2011)

Department of Propaganda
Tinsel Town leftists' movie about bin Laden raid set to debut just before 2012 presidential election  (Editorial, "Hollywood's Gift to O," New York Post, 8/13/2011)

Liberals Pine For "Benevolent" Dictator
"The sight of a crumbling Cult of Obama -- and with it the end of the progressive presidency -- has many on the left so frustrated that they simply dismiss the very idea of ideological debate."  (David Harsanyi, "Sorry, Guys, There Are No More Kings," Real Clear Politics , 8/10/2011)

Energy Idiocy
"President Barack Obama is ignoring heated concerns from within his own administration that new Environmental Protection Agency coal industry regulations will be economically devastating." (Matthew Boyle, "White House, EPA Ignore Small Business Admin's Report That New Coal Regulations Will Kill Jobs, Economy," The Daily Caller, 8/11/2011)

Taxed and Spent to Death
"The evidence strongly suggests that cutting spending alone may be the only way to really balance the budget.  Indeed, by including tax hikes, we slow economic growth, thereby making it harder to balance the budget."  (Michael Tanner, "Unbalanced: Obama Wants More Taxes for More Spending, Not for Debt Reduction," National Review, 8/10/2011)

Get a Clue
Have reports of President Obama's intelligence been greatly exaggerated?  (Bret Stephens, "Is Obama Smart? A Case Study in Stupid Is as Stupid Does," Wall Street Journal, 8/9/2011)

Falling Down
The sanctimonious arrogance of liberal elites cannot save them from the grand failures of their own making.  (Victor Davis Hanson, "A Tottering Technocracy: Here and in Europe, the Financial Meltdown Exposes the Hollowness of our Elites," National Review, 8/9/2011)

ObamaCare Delusion
Barack Obama's cousin, Dr. Milton Wolf, explains how ObamaCare is an impossible, harmful fantasy.  (Dr. Milton R. Wolf, "Obamacare or America? Liberals' Cruel, Empty Promises Hurt Rich and Poor Alike," Washington Times, 8/11/2011)
