VERY important comments from Pelosi and Reid today
This is just under 8 minutes long, so if embedding it is a no-no and I can kill it and use this link instead. Pelosi seemed a bit befuddled at times and she was throwing out whoppers faster than Reid could. Some highlights and comments in chronological order. Pelosi: Members are bringing back the benefits of communication they had with their constituents in August. (Riiiight.) | Read More »
Some people “get it” when it comes to raising the debt limit
Some people think raising the debt ceiling is a bad idea. Mr. President, I rise today to talk about America’s debt problem. The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial | Read More »
Meanwhile, back at the AARP
I’m going from the printed bulletin I received just after canceling my membership, but they do have all or most of this info on-line. (example) The largest print on the cover is THE HYPE THE LIES THE FACTS Subhead (emphasis theirs): How to tune out the fear-mongering and misinformation and make sense of the health care reform debate (I thought it was health insurance reform. | Read More »
NHS death panels confirmed
That stupid blithering idiot Sarah Palin apparently called this one right, and the 61 smartest people in the world (i.e. Obama + the 60 Senate Dems (I’ll include whoever takes Teddy’s place)) were wrong. Drudge is highlighting this lovely story from across the pond. Patients with terminal illnesses are being made to die prematurely under an NHS scheme to help end their lives, leading doctors | Read More »
Obama’s revolving door of strategies in Afghanistan (updated)
For the guy who during the campaign knew exactly what needed to be done everywhere, it seems odd that Obama’s so-called “strategy” for Afghanistan has changed faster than the Democratic definition of “public option”. March 27 – Obama announces his Afghanistan strategy. (I believe this is the first one.) April 21 – We’re told before it’s even implemented that the strategy needs to be changed. | Read More »
Toyota sticks a drive shaft in the UAW’s eye (updated with info from another article)
Toyota was the biggest beneficiary of cash for clunkers, and right after it has ended they say they’re pulling out of a California factory – the only one where they have the dubious pleasure of dealing with the UAW. But it’s not quite that simple. The first two paragraphs make it sound like Toyota are the bad guys. Thanks Reuters. You’re the guys who just | Read More »
About that “big tent” the Democrats claim to have
Pete Stark (as in stark-raving mad) calls the Blue Dogs “brain-dead” for the most part and says they are looking to cause trouble and raise money from insurance companies. That should help get the Dems united behind Obamacare Kennedykare.
Sending a terrorist home to the open arms of his country’s leader?
No, I’m not talking about Scotland, but rather The Curious Case of Mohammed Jawad. Does this look like the face of a 19yo kid who was grabbed off the street at random as an innocent 12yo and then tortured and starved for the past 6-1/2 years, or of a 24yo terrorist who survived 6-1/2 years at Gitmo after being nabbed tossing a grenade at US | Read More »
Gaddafi visit upsets New Jersey hypocrites
I may need the asbestos suit for this one, but what the heck planet are these people living on? Some of them are upset that Gaddafi is doing a stayover in New Jersey when he visits the UN next month. Englewood Mayor Michael Wildes said it would be offensive for Gaddafi even to be allowed a U.S. visa after Lockerbie bomber Abdel Basset al-Megrahi was | Read More »
Still more jobs created by Obama!
Politico reports on the astroturfing blitz planned by the lefties. Reform supporters are planning to hold more than 500 events between Wednesday and when lawmakers return to Washington Sept. 8, ranging from neighborhood organized phone banks to professionally staffed rallies with hundreds of people. The Democratic National Committee and its grassroots arm, Organizing for America, are helping to organize the effort along with the Health | Read More »
