Barack Obama's Scandals Confirm that He's Not a CEO

Every CEO is a politician. Not every politician is a CEO. The current set of messes that President Obama faces makes the point. They are as much management failures as they are political/legal nightmares. There is a price for having no market-facing executive experience. Indeed, Mr. Obama’s first cabinet had almost no private sector management experience. Most of our better presidents have had business or military leadership experience. This is of tremendous value when running the world’s largest organization. Those who haven’t, like Bill Clinton, himself tested by failure as a politician and familiar with the executive role governors play, knew that private sector executives have a different view of what successful management is and kept a few close at hand.

Ghost of Columbia Part II: Legendary Columbia Professor Never Heard of Obama

Something about "the Obama at Columbia story" has always bothered me. Earlier in the week right here at The Blaze I wrote about having just returned from New York, where I attended my 30th Columbia University reunion. I celebrated with my esteemed classmates - everyone except Barack Obama. As usual, he wasn't there. Not a trace. Not a video greeting. Not a letter. I could not find any classmates who knew him. I called Obama "the Ghost of Columbia University." I pointed out (as I've said in the media for many years now) that Obama may have been registered at Columbia, may have graduated from Columbia, but he was rarely (if ever) seen for the two years in-between. It's a strange and mysterious story. [more...]

Today's Politics Getting Too Personal

Who can recall when three different stories or scandals were breaking all at the same time, any one of which could cost the President his job? Hence, for those who speak and write about these issues, it is the absolute best of times. But sadly, the disrespect and vindictive personal smears emanating from both sides of the political spectrum appear to have hit a new all-time low. To illustrate, almost all of the advertising during the previous presidential election entailed trashing the other candidate rather than promoting anybody’s own position. The level of mean-spiritedness was positively vulgar. [more...]

Why You Should Stop Renting and Buy a Home Now

Are you currently renting the home that you live in? We recently analyzed data on historical pricing for existing home sales of single family homes in the U.S. We looked at historical price data for single family homes from the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) going back to 1970. We applied historical real estate data to today’s real estate market in order to compare and analyze how a typical first time home buyer today could benefit by purchasing a home similar to the one that they are currently renting. Based on historical data, along with current home prices and mortgage rates we believe that if you are currently renting and you have decent credit then you should really think about buying a home right now.

Are All the Scandals Creating a New Politics?

This week the POLITICAL INSIDERS explored the underlying result of the NSA, PRISM, IRS, AP and Benghazi scandals: a deepening alienation by the American people from the self-elected, elitist political class which may alter our politics in upcoming election years. Sunday: Part 1 - Part 2 - Monday [more...]
