Issa to headline Pennsylvania GOP gathering
A Pennsylvania GOP confab would be a curious place for most out-of-state Congressmen. But not California Rep. Darrell Issa. Issa, whose rhetoric has been a clarion call of sorts for fellow Congressional Republicans over allegations the White House offered federal posts to two Democratic primary challengers, will address Friday the Pennsylvania Republican Party at the group’s summer meeting. Other speakers include Rick Santorum, Rob Gleason, | Read More »
This is Leadership?
“We talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers, so I know whose ass to kick.” – President Obama “He [BP CEO] wouldn’t be working for me.” – President Obama “Bring those responsible to justice on behalf of the victims of this catastrophe.” – President Obama I could go on, but instead, I ask: how are these comments by the President helping | Read More »
Pride, the Fall, and Barack Obama
The Houston Chronicle is reporting the Netherlands, a experienced oil producing nation, offered the United States help in dealing with the British Petroleum spill very quickly after it started, but the Obama Administration turned them down, opting instead to coordinate with BP to stop the spill and contain the damage. Made worse, with the Obama administration threatening criminal and civil prosecution of British Petroleum as | Read More »
Wait a minute. Wait just one minute on this.
We’re heard the quote from the President. Now read it. “I don’t sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar. We talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers so I know whose ass to kick.” No seriously. Read it again. “I don’t sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar. We talk to | Read More »
Talk Is Cheap
Last night, Barack Obama tried to play Mr. Tough Guy, but talk is cheap. When George Bush stood on the rubble of the World Trade Center and said, “I can hear you! I can hear you! The rest of the world hears you! And the people — and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!” people knew he meant | Read More »
His ego wrote checks his skills* can’t cash, Froma.
Froma Harrop is very, very upset that mean people are picking on President Obama: Gulf Coast residents are supposedly mad at President Obama for not keeping the oil from threatening their beaches and marshes. We hear this in stereo — from political opposition on the right and liberal pundits bored by the president’s cerebral approach to problem-solving. Stopping the waves is a job for Neptune, | Read More »
Snooki Laments McCain Not Winning Election, Blasts Obama
When you’ve lose Snooki, you’ve lost the nation (Via MsUnderestimated): This was hilarious… was from the pre-MTV Movie Awards show “Jersey Shore.” Snookie’s boyfriend was giving her a 3rd layer of a spray tan, and Snookie said she’s sworn off “tanning-tanning” because of Obama’s 10% tax on it. She goes on to opine that McCain wouldn’t have done it because he needs a tan.

I just got a phone call from (617) 898-9898, in Milton, MA. The call was an automated call asking me if I was behind on my mortgage. Due to Barack Obama’s stimulus plan and financial reform package, now my mortgage company is forced to renegotiate with me because of potential predatory lending — at least that’s what they said. I’m on the do not call | Read More »
No Act of Moderation: Why Barack Obama cannot fix the economy
Updated to reflect Obama’s NBC interview “Tie Barack Obama’s handling of the economy together with his handing of the British Petroleum accident and we have the definitive reason Barack Obama cannot fix the economy.” This past week, the Gulf States who hoped Barack Obama would actually do something to help them were stunned when he imposed a ban on deep water offshore drilling. It is | Read More »
White House breaks campaign promise on commercial whaling ban.
Now he’s just messing with us: The Obama administration is leading an effort within the International Whaling Commission to lift a 24-year international ban on commercial whaling for Japan, Norway and Iceland, the remaining three countries in the 88-member commission that still hunt whales. [snip] [Environmental] groups have run ads in major newspapers highlighting Obama’s campaign promise in 2008 to “strengthen the moratorium on commercial | Read More »
Rangel equates Obama with Cheney.
Guess he’s not counting on the President to campaign for him, then. Rep. Charles Rangel compared President Obama to former Vice President Dick Cheney Saturday for their shared commitment to the Iraq War, one the Harlem Democrat argues is based on the country’s hunger for oil. “I challenge anyone to tell me we aren’t there because of the oil,” said Rangel, who kicks off his | Read More »
NBC anchor to Obama: ‘That ain’t the way this is going to play out.’
Via Ed Morrissey: I got a kick out of President Obama saying that even when the cameras go away we’ll still be there for you. That ain’t the way this is going to play out. If anything, the cameras being here have compelled outside interests – government, BP – to kick this into another gear. With all due respect, the President might have had his | Read More »
White House Memo Makes Offer-gate into a Scandal
“There is a cancer on the presidency. It has been growing daily for the past three months. It’s compounding, it grows geometrically now because it compounds itself. And there is no assurance that it won’t bust.” Former White House Counsel John Dean spoke those words to President Richard Nixon almost 40 years ago as the Nixon White House was desperately trying to cover its role | Read More »
Romanoff, White House aide admit jobs talk
A senior aide to President Barack Obama approached former Colorado House Speaker Andrew Romanoff with the possibility of three federal posts as an alternative to his primary challenge to Beltway-supported Senator Michael Bennet.
