Sean Trende: Does Obama's Order Set a Precedent for GOP Presidents?

Heather MacDonald, City Journal: The Microaggression Farce

TheLastRefuge: The Motives Behind The November Rogers/Ruppersberger “House Intelligence Panel” Report On Benghazi…
"This is not a House Intelligence 'Committee' report on Benghazi. This is only two committee members writing a report based on prior information.... The Rogers/Ruppersberger Report is specifically designed, by wording, to provide political cover to both parties – Republicans and Democrats within the Gang of Eight particularly included, and protected.... In short: Mike Rogers is trying to hide his willful blindness." [rdbrewer]

Report: Bill Cosby’s Fixer at NBC Comes Forward [rdbrewer]

Jonah Goldberg: Obama to Congress: It’s My Way or My Way
"Like a cannibal in a coma ward, I have no idea where to begin. It is always remarkable to me — which is why I am remarking upon it — how the only way this president can be rescued from a bad news cycle is if an even worse one comes along....If I ask you to hold a bowling ball and then, five minutes later, I surprise you by throwing a second bowling ball at you and shouting 'Catch!' it’s sort of unfair for me to expect you not to drop the ball."

Sam Vaknin videos help to understand what drives Obama
"[A]ttention of any kind – positive or negative – constitutes Primary Narcissistic Supply. Infamy is as sought after as fame, being notorious is as good as being renowned." I've linked this before, but it's a good reminder. He's addicted to narcissistic supply; it's all about him, and there is very little he won't do to keep himself at the top of the headlines. He doesn't care about harm to individuals or our system of government.

Peggy Noonan: The Nihilist in the White House
"The assumption of history’s inevitable vindication is sharper in the current White House, due to general conceit—they really do think they possess a higher wisdom and play a deeper game—and the expectation that liberal historians will write the history. The illusion becomes a form of license." [rdbrewer]

Robert Tracinski: President Palpatine: Obama Dissolves the Old Republic
"[M]edia and Hollywood types have always convinced themselves, as George Lucas did, that their villains were metaphors for George W. Bush or a cautionary tale about the evils of the right. But here we are, the Old Republic is being dissolved, and it’s their hero who is doing it. They find themselves on the side of the Empire." [rdbrewer]

David Gergen, CNN: Obama's dangerous move on immigration
"Sadly, we instead have an action from the White House that will cast a dark shadow over prospects for legislative cooperation, falls short of what the immigrant population had hoped and steers us into deep, unknown waters in our governance." [rdbrewer]
