This Week in Washington – June 7, 2010
Rahm Emanuel on November 19, 2008 in a Wall Street Journal video product 2008 Shaping the New Agenda uttered the now famous words: “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. What I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” Evidently, the left will not allow the Gulf of Mexico oil spill “crisis to go to | Read More »

The Chicago Way on Trial: Blago, Obama & the SEIU
If you ever catch on fire, try to avoid seeing yourself in the mirror, because I bet that’s what really throws you into a panic. Jack Handey Summers are generally known as a time for forest fires and where there’s smoke, there’s usually a fire burning. Right now, as waves of oil splash along the coastlines of the southeastern United States, there are large plumes | Read More »
Did Bill Clinton Pwn Barack Obama?
“Why did the White House let this whole Sestak affair become such a large scandal?” That is the million dollar question that I’ve heard on the lips of every major pundit on Fox News–from Charles Krauthammer, to Megyn Kelly, to Juan Williams (not to mention, Redstate’s Moe Lane as well–see his comment in the diary that I linked to). In other words, why didn’t the | Read More »
Obama, What Did He Know And When Did He Know It?
It’s tempting to venture into calling what may be happening to President Obama and the Democrats poetic justice, as more is revealed about the White House, Sestak, Clinton connection. Clinton and Sestak Republicans are calling for a special prosecutor to dig into the offering to Sestak of ‘an unpaid job’ as the head of a Presidential commission, if he’d drop his Senate bid in favor | Read More »
Eric Massa Trashes Dem Leadership on His Way Out the Door
Lady Libertas has popcorn popping and will be sitting back and watching the Eric Massa saga unfold today. Eric Massa is the US House of Rep Congressman from NY-29 who announced his resignation last week due to a House Ethics Probe about misbehavior during a wedding and inappropriate comments. Massa apparently has decided to take out the Democratic Leadership on his way out the door. | Read More »
Rahm Emanuel Is Dead. He Just Hasn’t Been Told Yet.
Streiff noted earlier David Broder beating down Dana Milbank over Milbank’s Rahm Emanuel stories.Broder believes that Emanuel is not the source for Milbank, but it is abundantly clear Rahm Emanuel either directly or indirectly is trying to cover his bottom as the Obama administration crumbles.It started mid-February with a hagiographic tale of woe in the Obama administration and how Rahm Emanuel is the hero and | Read More »
Obama to Reward Favorgate Figure with Top Campaign Post
Politico has a piece today on preparations President Obama and his inner circle are making for his reelection campaign, which the article states is set to launch early next year. Mike Allen reports that the campaign is likely to be run out of Chicago and staffed by a cadre of veterans from Obama’s 2008 campaign. Of particular interest given the news of the week is | Read More »
We take a break from the hyperventilating over the latest moves in the slow-motion kabuki dance that is the Obama Administration’s efforts to ram its federal takeover of the health care system down the throats of the overwhelming majority of Americans who oppose the various bills to take a look at what should be a much, much bigger story. Last week, Democratic Senate Candidate Joe | Read More »
Obama’s Scorched Earth Policy.
With his entire legislative agenda frozen in Congress and not likely to go anywhere soon, our President is dusting off his best Hugo Chavez imitation and is preparing to govern by decree. Everything the American people have told him in none too uncertain terms they want NO PART OF, the White House is preparing to end-run by utilizing executive orders. The ever-unsavory White House Chief | Read More »
If Wishes Were Fishes… Obama’s Pond Would Overflow.
But they (wishes) are not (fishes) and those nasty and hateful TEABAGGERS pulled the plug on the pond. Shucks, seems like a feller just can’t have any fun any more. Well, President Obama, it hasn’t been any fun out here for Americans for a very long time. Now, you can keep going back to the well and dredging up the specter of the Bush administration | Read More »
Obama, Emanuel Compete for Most Insensitive Remark
Aides to President Barack Obama acknowledged Tuesday White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel apologized to leaders of the special needs community after a recent screed involving the mentally disabled. At a White House meeting, Emanuel reportedly scolded a group of liberal strategists for attacking wayward Democrats over health care, dismissing the suggestion the White House alienate moderate Blue Dogs as “f–ing retarded.” Sarah Palin, | Read More »
Chris Matthews is a Moron Wrapped in an Idiot
He’s ticked me off big-time, this time. In a discussion on tonight’s episode of Hardball of what the Democrats’ options would be in the event of a Scott Brown victory, Chris Matthews said this: You have GOT. To be kidding me. Audie Murphy served twenty-seven months in the European Theater of World War II. At least a year of that time, it appears he was | Read More »
Demarxists Fear For Obamacare? Opposition Grows.
As if in sync with the cautionary statements coming from various quarters of the leftists’ Clown College, His Anointedness, Madame Pelosi and Dingy Harry emerged from another secretive closeted meeting at the once White House, to proclaim ’significant’ progress towards melding the House and Senate versions of the bill. This three pony carnival doesn’t ring true with what we’re hearing and the herrings being trailed | Read More »
Israel’s Last Piece To The Puzzle.
RAHM EMANUEL has been running off with his Chicago tough guy mouth again. This time making Israel and the Palestinians quiver with trepidation over his threats on behalf of his boss, Ineptitude the First. I’m sure that a properly chastened Israel will immediately drop all concerns over security and little items like survival and accede to the Anointed One’s command, “Peace now at any cost”. | Read More »
