I Will Not Talk About Rape
Uncle Joe is at it again. He is, once again, using the tried and true Democrat tactic of trying to scare people into letting the government spend more money. It is time to pass yet another failed stimulus bill, and if you don’t pass it, oh, you don’t even want to know the horrors the country will face.
The Solyndra Green Recovery That Wasn’t
With news this past week of Solyndra’s bankruptcy, firing of 1,100 employees and federal agents now raiding the homes of the executives, I thought it would be instructive for all to go back to where this began. Two years ago on September 4th of 2009, Vice President Biden was live via satellite to praise a little known solar company that was going to help America | Read More »
From civility to ‘barbarians’ and ‘SOBs’ and the Reverend Wright ‘I didn’t hear it’ defense
President Obama, on yet another taxpayer-funded reelection campaign junket — this one billed as a preview of his upcoming big jobs speech, called for a bipartisan response to his latest plan amidst extreme partisan rhetoric. Before Obama took to the podium, Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa set the tone with profane, violent and partisan rhetoric: We got to keep an eye on the battle that we | Read More »
Ron Johnson’s Blue-Slipping of Joe Biden’s Victoria Nourse.
Let me tell you a tale of the incompetence of Vice President Joe Biden. Trust me, this one is even better than usual. Once upon a time, back in the days when Joe Biden was a bad Senator instead of a bad Vice President, he had a staffer named Victoria Nourse. Ms. Nourse’s major claim to fame was ‘helping’ to write the (later deemed partially-unconstitutional) | Read More »
Mike Doyle (D, PA-14) backtracks on ‘terrorist’ comments.
Alternate title: Politically flabby Democrat (in comfortably Democratic seat) suddenly remembers that home state is losing a Congressional District; and that the redistricting process is fully in the hands of the other party*. Which is probably too long a title, at that. Anyway, Mikey Doyle is very, very sorry that the Tea Party thought that he was talking about them when he started spouting off | Read More »
QotD, Joe Biden Opens His Mouth edition.
Episode 34,872. Our illustrious Vice President, reminding the Teamsters that democracy must always give way to naked political partisanship: “And don’t any of you, by the way, any of you guys vote Republican,” Biden said. “I’m not supposed to say, this isn’t political. …don’t come to me if you do! You’re on your own, Jack!” Now, is that the official position of the United States | Read More »
Eric Cantor Pulls Out. So does Jon Kyl. It Distracts From the Big Story.
Eric Cantor (R-VA) decided to pull out of talks with Joe Biden on what to do about the debt. He placed the problem in President Obama’s and Speaker’s Boehner’s laps saying there were issues relating to taxes that only they could resolve. Senator Jon Kyl (R-AZ), a man well known on Capitol Hill to negotiate defeat from the jaws of victory, decided he would pull | Read More »
I am *done* with President Obama.
UPDATE: Paul Ryan’s done, too. Jake Tapper titled the post where he compares President’s Obama rhetoric in 2010 (semantic translation: “I don’t have the testicles to be rude to Republicans at their own retreat.”) to his rhetoric today (I can’t improve on Tapper’s title) “Throw Grandma From the Train.” Apparently, being forced to abandon his happy-shiny 2011 budget has made the President… well, Obama was | Read More »
Joe Biden Wants Male Reporters To Stay In The Closet
At a political fundraiser in Florida, Vice President Joe Biden and/or his staff issued their own Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy against reporter Scott Powers. To ensure that he literally could not ask, nor tell, they locked him in a closet. Can’t have the riff-raff fraternizing amongst the fancy pants guests, now can we? An aide to Vice President Joe Biden has apologised to a reporter | Read More »
Orlando Sentinel reporter Scott Powers stuffed in closet at Bill Nelson shindig.
This is all very symbolic: Orlando Sentinel reporter Scott Powers was assigned to cover a fundraiser for Senator Bill Nelson (D, FL) that was being thrown by local real estate bigwig Alan Ginsburg. The fundraiser featured Vice President Joe Biden (D), whose staff promptly tossed Powers into a closet and refused to let him out except for the actual speeches [themselves]. This… is problematical, particularly | Read More »
State Of The Union Prom Dates
At this week’s State of the Union address, those cards in the House and Senate are going to be a little more shuffled than usual. It seems in the interest of newing up the tone and de-rhetoricizing, the boys and girls have decided to find themselves speech buddies from across the aisle. Yes, in a move certain to send shivers of intimidation down the spines | Read More »

Let’s Take Barack Obama’s Advice on the Debt Limit
Back in 2006, as the vote on the debt limit came up, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and Harry Reid all voted against it. Here is what I am calling on all Republicans to do. They should go to the floor of their respective house in the congress and, before pledging to vote against the debt limit just like Barack Obama did when he was there, | Read More »
Read Biden’s Lips: new taxes in 2013!
Vice President Joe Biden, bless his heart, is promising that there’s going to be a tax hike (including one on small businesses) in 2013. This, despite the fact that that the Republicans used their 58/42 minority in the Senate and 256/179 minority in the House to somehow prevent the current ruling party from moving ahead on the promised tax hikes: no doubt the President will | Read More »
For Democrats, Math Is Hard. So Is The Truth.
The two latest examples of Democrat ineptitude, incompetence and total math fail come to us from none other than Nancy Pelosi (the best speaker of the house EVAH) and Joe “doll hair” Biden. First up is Nancy Pelosi with both bad math and shameless lies. As Ben Domenech points out at RedState, Pelosi claimed that Obamacare would create (or save!) 4 million jobs with 400,000 | Read More »
What’s the cost to taxpayers for Patty Murray’s 911 call to Obama and Biden?
Democrats are hitting the panic button in Washington State as the race between Democratic Senator Patty Murray and Republican challenger Dino Rossi narrows down to the nail-biter many of us knew it would be. How much is Murray’s eleventh-hour 911 call to Pres. Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama and Vice Pres. Joe Biden costing taxpayers? After already receiving two visits from the executive branch’s | Read More »
