“You don’t like a particular policy or a particular president? Then argue for your position. Go out there and win an election.” -President Obama a year ago. President Obama’s failing presidency just found salvation: A GOP controlled Congress for his last two years in office. They will salvage some of his legacy. Just a few… Read more »

US veterans are dying at the hands of left wing bureaucrats and democrats have made clear they do not regard the issue as serious. There are many things that are more important than the health of veterans. Among them: – Health care of Gitmo terrorists Here’s another secret the White House doesn’t want you to… Read more »

Facing an inevitable Liberal blood bath in 2012, mainly because of the ineptness and incompetence of the Obama Administration, Liberals have been quick to rally behind the next best option, a New England Rino. They are willing to admit that perhaps the Socialism and cronyism of Obama wasn’t what the country needed these nearly three years of an ever worsening financial situation.
However, secretly they wonder whether the Liberal brand can survive the catastrophic repercussions resulting from the imposition of an ideological Socialism during these lean economic times.
Chief Napoleon Bear Killer wasn’t really a Chief, but he looked the part and he scared most White men. He was tall with a face that was the color and texture of weathered leather in need of oil. A mustache drooping from the corners of the mouth gave him a sinister look, his facial expression never changed, and he stared right through you; these particular characteristics made people from the city a little uncomfortable. The long knife he carried on his hip didn’t help his appearance; especially, when he sharpened it every night after dinner while telling one of his tales of murder and mayhem. He was actually a kind hearted man with a gift for story telling. Unfortunately, a favorite story of his was about one of his ancestors, a homicidal maniac named Olivia Muskrat. He loved to tell this story to hunters late at night around the campfire, when there were strange noises in the darkness or the wolves were serenading us after a few shots of sipping whiskey.
Today I asked for a joint session of Congress where I will lay out a clear plan to get Americans back to work.
Next week, I will deliver the details of the plan and call on lawmakers to pass it. Whether they will do the job they were elected to do is ultimately up to them.
But both you and I can pressure them to do the right thing. We can send the message that the American people are playing by the rules and meeting their responsibilities—and it’s time for our leaders in Congress to meet theirs. And we must hold them accountable if they don’t.
So I’m asking you to stand with me in calling on Congress to step up and take action on jobs:
Democrats are pulling out all the rhetorical stops in attacking Republicans regarding the debt ceiling debate:
The irrepressible Van Jones
Any faction in America that would put a gun to the head of 310 million people and say ‘If you don’t do it our way, we will blow your dreams away, we will blow a hole in the American economy’, that is un-American. That is not how we do business, and we refuse to bow down to those tactics.”
The president told Eric Cantor “Don’t Call My Bluff”. Well, why wouldn’t you call someone’s bluff; especially, after they just told you they were bluffing.
The president has once again made a mockery of the IQ that is supposed to be off the charts, during the negotiations over raising the $14.3 trillion debt limit. His tough guy line that sounds more like a Pee Wee Herman character than line Gary Cooper; he obviously was off teleprompter.
The perviously unknown term “off teleprompter” has become the legendary period of time, when the real wit and wisdom of Obama shines through.
It is interesting that so many congressional members disagree. Kagan was sworn in to the Supreme Court on August 7, 2010. Because of her role as Solicitor General, she has recused herself from 25 of 51 cases the court accepted through December. Ms Kagan maintained that she would recuse herself on any cases brought to the Supreme Court on a case by case basis. She also maintained in written responses that she had no involvement in developing the government’s legal responses to to the health care law and was never asked her views; however, if as the documents portray that she lied, the American public will rightly assume she was lying concerning her own integrity in judging whether it is suitable for her to hear the challenges to the president’s health care Constitutionality.
The president maintains that Democrats have compromised their principles by agreeing to billions worth of budget cuts that will hurt the Democrat voters. Yet Republicans are refusing to yield by not agreeing to eliminate tax breaks for owners of rich oil companies and corporate jets. Thus if Republicans get their way, there will be a one-sided or unbalanced deal that will the raise the debt ceiling but will force the government to make devastating cuts that aren’t necessary.
“If we do not have revenues, that means there are a bunch of kids out there who do not have college scholarships,” Obama said. “[It] might compromise the National Weather Services. It means we might not be funding critical medical research. It means food inspection might be compromised. I’ve said to Republican leaders, ‘You go talk to your constituents and ask them, “Are you willing to compromise your kids’ safety so some corporate-jet owner can get a tax break?”
