White House to Renege on Senate Deal?
he Wall Street Journal says that Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, and Arlen Specter may have been snookered. Now that the Senate has passed a slimmed-down porked up version of the Obama-Reid-Pelosi debt spending plan, the White House is pushing to add back many of the items that it cut out to get their support:
Geithner Is The Only Guy For This Job?
During his less-than-stellar press conference last night, President Barack Obama touched on the announcement of Tax-Evader-In-Chief Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner’s plans to get the American financial and credit systems back on track: And so tomorrow my Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner, will be announcing some very clear and specific plans for how we are going to start loosening up credit once again. And that means having | Read More »

Bush made famous his phrase “You’re either with us or against us in the fight against terror.” He was making those remarks towards foreign governments who were known to have had assisted Islamist terrorists, most notably Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Libya. Bush was helping to rally the country for the long fight ahead, trying to ratchet up the | Read More »
Senator Collins on her Defection to the Dark Side
“Well I hope my colleagues will remember we cut over 150 billion…” Yeah Senator Collins, how about the rest? The House Stimulus bill was analyzed by the Congressional Budget Office, who said it would be too slow to stimulate. The Senate added to the cost, does that make it a better bill? Lords86 asks two questions of Collins, but primary is this; Would someone please | Read More »
BOHICA – Bend over, here it comes again. As everyone knows, the Senate worked late last night to line up a "deal" on the Porkulus bill between three Republicans (Collins and Snowe of Maine, and Specter of Pennsylvania) and representatives of the remaining 56 Democrats and 2 Independents (Lieberman of Connecticut and Sanders of Vermont). Based on what I saw, the other 38 Republicans don’t | Read More »

Obama, Soros and Bill Ayers versus Rush Limbaugh. Economic Teach-ins and Hollywood style campaigns headed toward a house near you.
Army of Obama: People of America – do not listen to Limbaugh! Step aside and accept our rule.
Limbaugh: America – stand firm and do not allow this Porkulus plan to pass.
Army of Obama: Step aside Rushites. For Soros, the god of the left, has so much money that he can block out the sun with an advertising campaign against you!
Leonidis Limbaugh: Then we shall fight in the shade.
