Rush is 100% right about this one...
Health care reform legislation being pushed through Congress represents the "biggest snatch of freedom and liberty" in U.S. history, Rush Limbaugh tells "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace in an exclusive interview to air this Sunday.
The conservative radio talk show host blasted the Democrats' health care bills as a front that would steal money from American businesses and effect the partial takeover of the private sector.
"This is not about insuring the uninsured -- this is not about health care," Limbaugh told Fox News. "This is about stealing one-sixth of the U.S. private sector and putting it under the control of the federal government." READ MORE...
You might remember this time last year Michele Bachmann SUGGESTED that SOME members of congress are acting 'Un-American.' Well she was attacked by the left and smeared by the sissy media. It turns out she was dead on! We proved it- Click here.
They are trying to do a 'Palin' on Bachmann because she's a threat to exposing their lies, corruption and radical agenda. She is a conservative with a spine and she's one of the few republicans in congress who are trying to warn and help the American people, not the elitist radicals. Why would you want to help liberals? We hope those progressive scumbags FAIL..The Bachman haters are weak-minded, brainwashed 'sheep' who are too stupid to realize Michele Bachman is good for America.
Valerie Jarrett announced the other day that "we're going to speak truth to power."
Who's Valerie Jarrett? She's "Senior Adviser" to the president of the United States – i.e., the leader of the most powerful nation on the face of the Earth. You would think the most powerful man in the most powerful nation would find a hard job finding anyone on the planet to "speak truth to power" to. But I suppose if you're as eager to do so as his Senior Adviser, there's always somebody out there: The Supreme Leader of Iran. The Prime Minister of Belgium. The Deputy Tourism Minister of the Solomon Islands. But no. The Senior Adviser has selected targets closer to home: "I think that what the administration has said very clearly is that we're going to speak truth to power. When we saw all of the distortions in the course of the summer, when people were coming down to town hall meetings and putting up signs that were scaring seniors to death."
Ah, right. People "putting up signs." Can't have that, can we? The most powerful woman in the inner circle of the most powerful man on Earth has decided to speak truth to powerful people standing in the street with handwritten placards saying "THIS GRAN'MA ISN'T SHOVEL READY." Was it only a week ago that I wrote about this administration's peculiar need for domestic enemies?
The Senior Adviser seems to have forgotten that sheis the power. Admittedly, this is a recurring lapse on the part of the administration. There was Barack Obama only the other day, blaming everything on the president – no, no, silly, not him, the other fellow, the Designated Fall Guy who stepped down as head of state in January to accept the new constitutional position of Blame Czar. Musing on problems in Afghanistan, Obama blamed the "long years of drift" under his predecessor. The new president – OK, newish president – has been Drifter-in-Chief for almost a year but he's too busy speaking truth to the former power to get on top of the situation. It could be a while yet. In his more self-regarding moments, such as his speech to the United Nations, he gives the strong impression that the "long years of drift" began in 1776 READ MORE...
The recent election of Danielle Smith as leader of the Wildrose Alliance reminded me that among the many things I love about the libertarian/right wing are the women.
Could be our slogan: Come for the culture war ... stay for the chicks.
Right-wing women rock.
Not for us the sturdy, honest calves of the New Democrat/Green Party female, honed on eco-tourist rainforest hikes.
Those legs are often on unfortunate display, extending from a knee-length tweed skirt as hairy as the legs themselves, and end in a pair of Birkenstocks.
I have yet to see a pair of Birkenstock women's shoes that didn't look like part of the required uniform for police SWAT teams. Sensible shoes are one thing ... quite another to don a pair that look like they're meant for rappelling down the sides of buildings with a Heckler & Koch sniper rifle slung over your shoulder.
The primary reason our womenfolk are at war with the looming spectre of the nanny state is because you can't buy Jimmy Choos in a socialist paradise.
The only sensible footwear you'll find in a right-wing woman's closet are the Nike cross-trainers that go with her gym membership.
Everything else has a three-inch heel. Minimum.
Left-wing drabs recycle. Right-wing women shop -- and the government measures how much they shop every month to find out whether we're still in a recession. Basically, the world economy depends on right-wing women buying shoes.
You never hear a right-wing woman break out statistics pointing out that only 25% of elected offices in Canada are held by women, and then whining about it.
No. A right-wing woman wants to get elected, she runs for office.
If she wins, great. If she loses ... well, there's always more shoe shopping.
Left-wing women burn enormous quantities of fossil fuels to drive across the city to a farmer's market to purchase virtually the same carrot you can get at the neighbourhood Sobey's a couple of blocks from your house for half the price, all in the name of making the environment happy.
A right-wing woman hits the gym, swings past Sobey's and has dinner on the table by the time you get home ... while her left-wing counterpart is still stuck in traffic listening to Sarah McLachlan on her iPod and feeling morally superior about her carrot choices.
And when that plate of food is put in front of you by the right-wing hottie you had the good sense to marry, it will be 100% tofu-free. If you're lucky, she just remembered to buy steak and forgot about the carrot entirely. READ MORE...
Yuck. No wonder they're so miserable, angry and stupid.
WHAT ARE THE DEMOCRATS AND BARNEY FRANK HIDING? We Know He Is GAY, But Why Is He Stopping The Audit Of The Fed?
The Federal Reserve Board came into existence in 1913. Since the inception of the Fed (Federal Reserve Board), the agency has been shrouded in secrecy. Rumors abound about the Fed, who runs it, and what really goes on in the Fed. Rumors about the Fed do not bother me. The secrecy behind the Fed is of concern to me and should be to all Americans. William Greider, a writer for Rolling Stone, wrote the definitive book on the Fed, called Secrets of the Temple, How the Federal Reserve Runs The Country.
The Federal Reserve Banking System has been around almost one hundred years. It has never been audited. The Fed answers to no one. The Fed has loaned over twelve trillion dollars of taxpayer money, our money. To whom? Only the Fed knows. Recently the chairman of the Fed, Ben Bernanke, was called before Congress and when asked who received loans and bailout money, he told Congress it was none of their business. Keep in mind, it is our money and he does not have to disclose where it went. Why?
Consider the fact that America is twelve trillion dollars in debt. Combine that thought with the twelve trillion dollars in loans and bailouts, so now we are on the hook for twenty four trillion dollars. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have that kind of cash laying around if things go bad. It is time to audit the Fed. Since 1913 the US dollar has lost 95% of its purchasing power, all of which is due to monetary policy, as dictated by the Fed.
The Fed can enter into agreements and do business with foreign banks and governments, lending them money. It is our money, but we never know who they are or how much was loaned to them. For all we know, we could be supporting terrorism through our monetary policy. Audit the Fed.
The US Treasury has accounts with the Fed that allow for the Treasury to funnel money to Wall Street, and other entities without congressional approval or oversight. Remember, Chairman Bernanke told Congress to go pound sand and didn’t answer their questions. The General Accounting Office (GAO) should be able to audit the Fed. If any other agency were to use taxpayer funds in this manner, they would be considered a rogue agency and be held accountable for their actions. Audit the Fed. READ MORE...

Obama names 110 White House visitors. Most guests still hidden; list includes Bill Gates, Oprah, Newt Gingrich
Steve Elmendorf made the list. He's on our list too. Our 'biggest sissy' list. He fits right in with Obama and the democrats.
The White House on Friday released a small list of visitors to the White House since President Barack Obama took office in January, including lobbyists, business executives, activists and celebrities.
No previous administration has released such a list, though the information out so far is incomplete. Only about 110 names —and 481 visits —out of the tens of thousands who have visited the Obama White House were made public. Like the Bush administration before it, Obama is arguing that any release is voluntary, not required by law, depsite two federal court rulings to the contrary.
Under the Obama White House's policy, most names of visitors from Inauguration Day in January through the end of September will never be released. The White House says it plans to release most of the names of visitors from October on, and that release is due near the end of the year. There are limitations there as well, including potential Supreme Court nominees, personal guests of the First Family, and certain security officials. READ MORE...

Heresy, thy name is Christina Romer.
Last week, the chairman of President Barack Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers -- a position that carried the title “chief economist” until Larry Summers took up residence in the White House -- testified to the Joint Economic Committee on the economic crisis and the efficacy of the policy response.
Here’s the executive summary in case you missed it:
The crisis: “Inherited.”
The economy: “In terrible shape” (the inherited one).
The shocks to the system: “Larger than those that precipitated the Great Depression.”
The policy response: “Strong and timely.”
The efficacy of the policy response: a 2 to 3 percentage point addition to second-quarter growth; 3 to 4 percentage points in the third; and 160,000 to 1.5 million “jobs saved or created,” a made-up metric if there ever was one. (More on that later.)
What was most puzzling about Romer’s Oct. 22 testimony was her comment on the waning effect of fiscal stimulus.
“Most analysts predict that the fiscal stimulus will have its greatest impact on growth in the second and third quarters of 2009,” Romer said. “By mid-2010, fiscal stimulus will likely be contributing little to growth.” READ MORE...
We LOVE Pat Buchanan's advice...Levi's turning into a pu**y...and it's 100% FACT that anyone who believes a word out of this tools mouth is an idiot. (liberals)
If Sarah Palin had been a Democrat, no show more credible than Jerry Springer’s would be giving Levi Johnston a chance to spread scurrilous gossip about her.
Why would they? Levi Johnston is a 19-year-old high school dropout whose mother is in jail for selling Oxycontin. Johnston’s sister Mercede? She got her pockets filled by the trashy Star magazine to talk about the Palin family. Read that description of the Johnston family and you tell me if you’d trust any of them to so much as mind the till at your child’s lemonade stand for five minutes.
Setting that aside, Levi Johnston isn’t Sarah Palin’s friend, her husband, her business partner, her adviser, or even a staffer. To the contrary, he’s a 19-year-old kid who got to spend a little time around the family and their daughter. Do you really think Sarah Palin is spilling her deepest, darkest secrets in front of Levi? Do you think she’d talk about divorcing her husband in front of him? Do you think she’d call her son a “retard” in his presence? Common sense says “no.”
Of course, anything’s possible and common sense isn’t always common. But if someone’s lying, who do you think it’s more likely to be? The woman who knowingly chose to have and raise a child with Down syndrome or the kid who parlayed being the source of malicious gossip about Sarah Palin into a pistachio commercial? Who’s lying? A woman who made a reputation for herself fighting corruption in politics or a kid who now refers to himself as Ricky Hollywood? READ MORE...
Update- Levi Johnston 'to take Sarah Palin to court' over child custody. Maybe if he wasn't so busy trying to be a C- movie star, visiting the talk show circuit and lying to Tyra Banks, he could of been visiting and helping to raise his infant kid. What a scumbag. Liberals will side with him because they're also scumbags. In fact, I bet they're behind this lawsuit. It's just how nasty and crude progressive liberals are..
MAKE MY DAY! 'Dirty' Granny Packing Heat Blasts Ex Con Trying To Rob Her With Her 357 Magnum....Awesome! Totally Awesome!
A man shot to death this week when he tried to rob a family in their Ohio motel room was a parolee wanted in St. Louis County, the Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch reported Friday.
An arrest warrant had been issued for Wayne Winston, 25, of Florissant in August because he moved out of state without permission while on probation, Jacqueline Lapine, a spokeswoman for the Missouri Department of Corrections, told the newspaper.
Authorities in Ohio say Winston was shot and killed Wednesday after he barged into a hotel room with a gun demanding money. There were six people in the room and they’d left the door open to the first-floor room so the adults in the room could stay within earshot of two girls in the room next door.
One of the people in the room, a 70-year-old great-grandmother, reached into her purse on the floor, pulled out a .357-caliber Magnum pistol and shot Winston once in the chest, the newspaper reported.
Winston stumbled to the parking lot, where he was later pronounced dead. READ MORE...
'AWESOME! TOTALLY AWESOME! ALL RIGHT HAMILTON!'
NOTE- This happens OFTEN in America and is rarely reported. Liberals want to take guns away from everyone BUT people like Mr. Winston (RIP).
Maybe these idiot liberals need to become a victim of a violent crime so they can get that 'helpless' painful feeling and they might change their mind.
Just imagine how wrong this COULD of went if Winston wasn't satisfied with the amount of money he got or if he didn't want to leave witnesses behind. What about the two girls next door? The thing is, you don't know and all too often, these robberies turn out to be violent murders.
Who cares what kind of upbringing Winston had, he knew it was wrong what he was doing it and he pulled his gun out. One more scumbag off the street; great job Grandma! If this happened in Mass-a-sissy, New Jersey or New York, they would try to put the grandmother in prison.
While NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was calling conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh too "divisive" to own a professional football team, rapper Snoop Dogg was appearing in television ads for ESPN's "Sunday NFL Countdown."
I guess Goodell and other higher-ups within the league weren't concerned with having a man possessing multiple felony charges against him including murder do commercials for the highly-watched Sunday pre-game show on the nation's leading sports cable network.
Maybe Goodell should have looked at Snoop's rap sheet before he derided Limbaugh right out of an ownership position with the St. Louis Rams (ESPN commercial embedded below the fold along with Wikipedia highlights of the rapper's legal issues, h/t NB reader Shekhar Jain):
While recording Doggystyle in August 1993, Snoop Dogg was arrested in connection with the death of Phillip Woldemariam, a member of a rival gang who was shot and killed by Snoop's bodyguard, McKinley Lee; Snoop was charged with murder along with Lee as he was driving the vehicle from which the shooting had commenced. Snoop was defended by Johnnie Cochran, with his bodyguard McKinley Lee. Both Snoop and Lee were acquitted; Lee was acquitted on grounds of self-defense, but Snoop Dogg remained entangled in the legal battles around the case for three years. In July 1993, Snoop was stopped for a traffic violation and a firearm was found by police while conducting a search of his car. In February 1997, he pled guilty to one count of being an ex-felon in possession of a handgun and was ordered to record three public service announcements, pay a $1,000 fine, and serve three years' probation. Twice, in May 1998 and October 2001, Snoop Dogg was fined and arrested for misdemeanor marijuana possession. READ MORE...
White Coward Syndrome- No pride, no spine, no guts. Just ignorant and scared. A coward. Self loathing. An appeaser for acceptance from non-whites, even if you have to sell out. Afraid to speak up against hypocrisy, real racism and double standards. A suck-up. A brown noser. A wimp.
Who's Pulling Obama's Strings? Is David Axelrod beginning to emerge as Geppetto to President Obama’s Pinocchio?
Obama fans are in a tight spot. As the White House turns ever harsher and more divisive, supporters are scrambling to explain why President Obama sounds so very different from Campaigner Obama. There are two possible explanations, neither of which is flattering. The first is that Obama was insincere on the campaign trail. The second is that his advisors – David Axelrod and Rahm Emanuel -- are in control. The latter view is bound to take hold and it will not boost the president’s flagging popularity ratings.
Many who voted for President Obama feel deceived. When he said in Florida last year “we cannot afford the same political games and tactics that are being used to pit us against one another,” people believed him. When he extolled “rejecting fear and division for unity of purpose,” people believed him. When he said on election night “I will listen to you, especially when we disagree,” people believed him.
Why has the president left those admirable promises behind? Why is his administration going after Fox News, the Chamber of Commerce, insurance executives, AIG management, the drug industry, the Chrysler bondholders and any and all who oppose his policies?
Many believe that Obama is being manipulated by his political adviser David Axelrod and his Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. The aura of Chicago politics drifts over the capital like a smog. Ironically, the nasty assaults may be calculated to offset a growing view that the president is not tough enough to stand up to his detractors. He already looks weak as he “dithers” on Afghanistan, repeatedly blames George Bush for his problems and kow-tows to foreign leaders while apologizing for our nation’s past. Surely, though, it will not help Obama if the country begins to suspect the president is not his own man. Being seen as a follower in his own White House will surely magnify an unhealthy aura of inconsequence. READ MORE...
WILL VOTER FRAUD HELP CORZINE IN NJ? Democrats Ask New Jersey Secretary of State to Ignore Mismatched Signatures on Absentee-Ballot Requests; SCUMBAGS
This year, New Jersey’s registered voters can request a mail-in ballot for any reason. (Before 2005, voters needed to provide a reason for why they needed an absentee ballot.) The state received about 150,000 absentee-ballot applications this year.
On about 2,300 of those applications so far, the signature on the request form does not match the signature on the voter’s registration forms with the state.
In a development that is depressingly predictable, the New Jersey Democratic party is asking the state to provide provisional ballots for all these voters. Those ballots could, presumably, be used to overcome any narrow lead by Republican Chris Christie over Democrat Jon Corzine on Election Day.
A mass distribution of provisional ballots, at the request of a political party, would represent a significant change from established law. Currently, when a county clerk rejects an absentee-ballot request, the clerk tries to contact the voter — through mail, by phone, and in some cases, by attempting to contact the voter in person. And a person who has spoken to some of New Jersey’s county clerks says they’re granting wide latitude on signature styles; for them to reject a ballot request because of the signature, it has to be dramatically different from the one on file.

A badly-secured file from the House Ethics Committee shows dozens of lawmakers under scrutiny for potential corruption charges — and one in particular who may face a less-friendly inquiry from the Justice Department. Federal investigators asked the committee to suspend a years-long probe into the activities of Rep. Alan Mollohan (D-WV), indicating that criminal charges may result. The Washington Post reports the memo in two stories today:
House ethics investigators have been scrutinizing the activities of more than 30 lawmakers and several aides in inquiries about issues including defense lobbying and corporate influence peddling, according to a confidential House ethics committee report prepared in July.
The report appears to have been inadvertently placed on a publicly accessible computer network, and it was provided to The Washington Post by a source not connected to the congressional investigations. The committee said Thursday night that the document was released by a low-level staffer.
The ethics committee is one of the most secretive panels in Congress, and its members and staff members sign oaths not to disclose any activities related to its past or present investigations. Watchdog groups have accused the committee of not actively pursuing inquiries; the newly disclosed document indicates the panel is conducting far more investigations than it had revealed.

A Muslim congressman says there is no need to investigate interns who may be placed with members of strategic security committees by the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., who took his oath of office holding his hand on a Quran instead of a Bible and had CAIR staff members working on his campaign, read a statement in Congress criticizing the call for an investigation.
Lawmakers John Shadegg, R-Ariz.; Sue Myrick, R-N.C.; Paul Broun, R-Ga.; and Trent Franks, R-Ariz., earlier asked the House sergeant at arms to investigate whether the D.C.-based Muslim group carried out its plan, revealed in the book "Muslim Mafia" by Dave Gaubatz and Paul Sperry.
In another letter, this one to Attorney General Eric Holder, the House members asked the Justice Department to reveal to Congress members why CAIR was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror-finance case in U.S. history. READ MORE...
'Now we have proof' jihadis infiltrating D.C.
One of the more controversial pieces of Mayor Daley’s 2010 budget is the requirement for all city workers to take 24 unpaid furlough days.
The only city workers who have been spared from what amounts to an entire month off without pay are the city’s police and firefighters. But that could change.
A representative for the city budget office says the city is in negotiations with police and fire unions to accept furlough days.

CAIR linked to FBI shootout. Gave thousands to cop-killing leader of violent sect intent on Islamizing U.S.
Already under increased scrutiny after revelations in a new book, the Council on American-Islamic Relations now is defending itself against documented links to a federal case that drew national attention this week when an indicted Detroit imam was killed in an FBI raid.
Internal documents from an undercover investigation by the authors of "Muslim Mafia" show CAIR helped finance the legal appeal of Muslim cop-killer Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, who is named in the Detroit criminal complaint as the spiritual leader of a radical group that calls for violent action to establish a sovereign Islamic state within the U.S.
The federal complaint also states one of the 11 indicted followers of the imam who was killed in an exchange of gunfire with the FBI Wednesday, Luqman Ameen Abdullah, attended a mosque "affiliated with CAIR" in Windsor, Ontario, just across the Canadian border from Detroit.
Get "Muslim Mafia," autographed, from WND's Superstore
The criminal complaint suggests CAIR literature supporting Al-Amin incited Abdullah to violence.
"CAIR and everybody send me all of this stuff. I get sick," he was recorded as saying. "I got some soldiers with me. ... Brothers that I know would, you know, if I say 'Let's go, we going to go and do something.'"
Abdullah and his "soldiers" trained with weapons and explosives to carry out a plot to "take down" the U.S. government in violent jihad, according to the complaint. Al-Amin, the complaint adds, has been designated by the "nationwide radical fundamentalist Sunni group" led by Abdullah to be the ruler of the future Islamic state.
Formerly a leader of the Black Panther Party known as H. Rap Brown, Al-Amin is serving a life sentence at the Florence, Colo., supermax prison for shooting two police officers in Georgia and murdering one of them. READ MORE...
PELOSI-CARE? House ObamaCare bill: Here comes the taxes! (Why is this NUT writing the bill?!?) UPDATE- Boehner: '1,990 Pages of Bureaucracy'
Americans for Tax Reform has culled the 1990-page Pelosi health-care overhaul bill to find the taxes that will supposedly collect over $540 billion in revenue over 10 years. It’s quite an impressive list of new burdens on Americans and their health-care providers and producers — but that’s redundant. After all, who do you think will end up paying for the medical-device taxes? It won’t be insurers or doctors:
•Employer Mandate Excise Tax (Page 275): If an employer does not pay 72.5 percent of a single employee’s health premium (65 percent of a family employee), the employer must pay an excise tax equal to 8 percent of average wages. Small employers (measured by payroll size) have smaller payroll tax rates of 0 percent (<$500,000), 2 percent ($500,000-$585,000), 4 percent ($585,000-$670,000), and 6 percent ($670,000-$750,000).
•Individual Mandate Surtax (Page 296): If an individual fails to obtain qualifying coverage, he must pay an income surtax equal to the lesser of 2.5 percent of modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) or the average premium. MAGI adds back in the foreign earned income exclusion and municipal bond interest.
•Medicine Cabinet Tax (Page 324)
•Cap on FSAs (Page 325)
•Increased Additional Tax on Non-Qualified HSA Distributions (Page 326)
•Denial of Tax Deduction for Employer Health Plans Coordinating with Medicare Part D (Page 327)
•Surtax on Individuals and Small Businesses (Page 336)
•Excise Tax on Medical Devices (Page 339)
•Corporate 1099-MISC Information Reporting (Page 344)
•Delay in Worldwide Allocation of Interest (Page 345)
•Limitation on Tax Treaty Benefits for Certain Payments (Page 346)
•Codification of the “Economic Substance Doctrine” (Page 349)
•Application of “More Likely Than Not” Rule (Page 357)
NOTE- So we have a mentally retarded house speaker with a 34% approval rating in liberal California, who is the most despised political figure in America, who has a 9% all-time low approval rating in her congress, who is incompetent, a compulsive liar and one of the sneakiest, out of touch witches the hill has ever seen, writing the health care bill with Harry Reid in a locked office in the middle of the night. Hmmmm....What could possibly go wrong?!? It's why we call 'them' idiots..
UPDATE- Boehner on House Health Bill: '1,990 Pages of Bureaucracy'
Video: Noted News “Organization” Blasts White House Stimulus Numbers. WH Also Overstated Stimulus Jobs By Thousands (They Lied To You)
AP IMPACT: Stimulus jobs overstated by thousands (You keep voting democrat, this is what you get!)
WASHINGTON (AP) - A Colorado company said it created 4,231 jobs with the help of President Barack Obama's economic recovery plan. The real number: fewer than 1,000.
A child care center in Florida said it saved 129 jobs with the help of stimulus money. Instead, it gave pay raises to its existing employees.
Elsewhere in the U.S., some jobs credited to the stimulus program were counted two, three, four or even more times.
The government has overstated by thousands the number of jobs it has created or saved with federal contracts under the president's $787 billion recovery program, according to an Associated Press review of data released in the program's first progress report.
The discrepancy raises questions about the reliability of a key benchmark the administration uses to gauge the success of the stimulus. The errors could be magnified Friday when a much larger round of reports is released. It is expected to show hundreds of thousands of jobs repairing public housing, building schools, repaving highways and keeping teachers on local payrolls. READ MORE...
Imus on Obama; Imus Rants About His Fox Critics; Calls Obama 'A Whiny Little Titty Baby and a Girly Man'
Ever since long-time radio talker Don Imus inked a deal with the Fox Business Network to simulcast his morning radio program, he said he has been getting pushback from several acquaintances.
CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO OF IMUS GOING OFF AT HIS FOX CRITICS AND OBAMA.
And as he explained and showed on his Oct. 28 program, he's not particularly pleased with the reaction about his deal with Fox News.
"I get this email and the e-mail says, ‘Sorry to see you've sold out to Fox Business, or whatever. But I am not surprised you sold out to Fox Business, disappointed.' Could you explain to me exactly what does that mean? When you walk in the door here, Roger Ailes or Neil Cavuto or what's the other fat guy's name? Kevin McGee? Not the other fat guy, that was unfortunate." READ MORE...
Related- Imus calls Obama a pu***..
Recently a lot of hubbub had been made about the possibility that the peaceful tea party protests and some conservative voices would stir up emotions that could lead to violence. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was even one of those sounding that alarm.
But what has gone unsaid by those same voices has been the possibility of violence against those who might take a position antithetical to that of the left.
Case and point: CNN's Lou Dobbs. Dobbs, who has been the target of a smear campaign by the left-wing noise machine, told his radio audience on Oct. 26 that his home had been shot at three weeks earlier READ MORE...
NOTE- Maybe the liberals are swole that 72% of Americans agree Lou Dobbs about illegal immigration. The liberals can't win an argument over the immigration issue, so they just call you a racist if you disagree. Lou Dobbs has a hispanic wife, he must be so anti-hispanic right? The mind of a sick liberal...
Look what illegal immigration and entitlement programs have done to California, it's not broke because of 'middle class white men,' the liberals favorite target for assault. If liberals love illegal aliens so much, they should invite them into their homes for reasons other than cleaning it, and stop burdening the rest of working class Americans who have to support them with their tax dollars.
A better idea, all liberals should be sent to California where they can live in a gated community forever, not allowed to leave (so they can't continue to destroy the rest of the country) and lets see where they are in a few years. By gated, we mean an electric fence about 60 ft high...

The Cash for Clunkers program provided federal subsidies of up to $4500 for those car owners willing to buy a more fuel-efficient vehicle in exchange for certain classes of gas guzzlers. In all, the C4C program generated over 690,000 sales in the few weeks that it ran, with an average subsidy of $4,348 per sale. How many of these, though, would have bought a new car in the near future anyway? According to a new study by Edmonds, an industry analyst, only 125,000 of these sales would have not been made without C4C — which brings the subsidy to about $24,000 per actual successful incentive (via Snapped Shot):READ MORE...
DOMESTIC TERRORIST PELOSI: $1.4 Trillion Dollar Tax Increase On Middle Class And Small Business ISN'T Really A Tax Increase? WTF?!?
Watch this video of Pelosi's linguistic contortions as she argues that a $1.4 trillion dollar tax increase -- one of the largest in America history -- on middle class families and small businesses isn't one at all.
Any way you put it, the fact of the matter is the Obama and Pelosi Democrats don't believe you should be able to keep more of your hard earned income.
They support confiscating more of your money through higher taxes to fund their reckless spending and debt, expand the size and scope of government and redistribute your wealth to their liberal allies.
But Pelosi will not stop at $1.4 trillion in new taxes. Under her leadership, the Democrat controlled U.S. House has already passed a national energy Cap and Trade tax that could cost American businesses and families nearly $2 trillion and cause massive job losses.
There is only one way to stop Pelosi and Obama from raiding your pocketbook to pay for their liberal schemes: Electing Republican CONSERVATIVE majorities to the U.S. House and Senate in 2010.
If Pelosi is around in 2011, God help us..

You gotta love this pic of the ACORN 'con artist' Barack Obama writing his strategy for bank intimidation and voter fraud while his drooling zombies were just too blind or stupid to see it...

Chief Political Correspondent
When both houses of Congress voted to defund ACORN several weeks ago, what they actually did was bar lawmakers and federal agencies from giving any money to the community organizing group for the duration of the temporary budget agreement, or continuing resolution, that was in effect at the time. Continuing resolutions are used to extend federal spending, and keep the government running, when Congress can't agree on appropriations bills for the fiscal year. When the congressional defunding of ACORN went into effect on October 1, there was a continuing resolution in place that would last until October 31 -- this Saturday. The ACORN ban was in that resolution, so it will also expire on Saturday.
There are still no appropriations bills in place, so this week Congress will have to pass another continuing resolution to keep the federal government going. The word on the Hill is that the new resolution will probably be written to last until sometime in December.
The question is: will the ACORN defunding language be in the new resolution? The answer appears to be yes, at least for now. "We will do a CR this week that will basically extend the expiration date of the old CR, so the old language will stay," says one House Republican aide. The aide is "99.9 percent sure" that the ACORN prohibition will be in the new resolution; if Democrats tried to remove it, the aide says, "we would have a big fight this week."
Provided the ACORN ban stays for now, the real issue will be what happens when the new continuing resolution expires and actual appropriations bills are passed in December. Will there be a provision that says no funds from fiscal year 2010 will go to ACORN? Republicans are cautiously confident. "Democrats have a minority in their caucus that believes we should not have cut off ACORN," the aide says. "But I can't believe that there's a majority in their caucus that wants to fund ACORN."
Or at least wants to fight about it. Nevertheless, Republicans say they will be watching the new appropriations bills very closely. The appropriations process is sure to be chaotic, as lawmakers rush to finish spending bills before Christmas and New Year's. All it would take for ACORN funding to resume is the absence of any specific defunding language. If that language is not there, then federal agencies would again have the discretion of sending taxpayer dollars to ACORN. What happens in December could be the key to ACORN's future.
EAST ST. LOUIS — City officials seeking a new police chief passed up the former director of the Florida Highway Patrol, who formerly was a top commander of the Illinois State Police, because he is white, two former members of a city board claim.
Wyatt Frazer and Della Murphy allege in a federal lawsuit that they were forced off the Police, Fire and Civil Service Board for their advocacy of a white candidate when the chief's job was open in 2007.
Their lawyer said Tuesday the spurned candidate was Ronald Grimming, a Metro East resident who rose to be deputy superintendent of the State Police before taking the top spot in Florida in 1993. Grimming could not be reached for comment.
The suit against Mayor Alvin Parks, City Manager Robert Betts and the city itself does not identify Grimming by name or qualifications.
But the plaintiffs' lawyer, Thomas E. Kennedy III, said it was Grimming, and that Parks told his clients "the city wasn't ready to hire a white police chief." READ MORE...
NOTE- Remember that it's the spineless white liberals that 'cave' and make racism like this possible. They are self-loathing and assist black liberals in the assault on the white male in todays America...
When does a President stop blaming his predecessor and start taking responsibility for his own actions? To be fair, that has been an eternal question in the American context, but it does seem as though Barack Obama has a crutch that he refuses to put aside. Economy? Blame Bush! Media? Blame Bush! Afghanistan? Especially there, Charles Krauthammer argues, Obama has been “disgusting” in his blameshifting, especially since it has been six months since Obama rolled out his own strategy on the war READ MORE...
That's what happens when you put a radical community organizer in charge of the United States of America.

ONE FRENCH FRY SHORT OF A HAPPY MEAL: FOX News Confronts 'Dirtbag' Democrat Alan Grayson: Who Does This Guy Think He Is?
Alan Grayson is a pompous jackass. Doesn't he work for us, the people? We need an appointment to ask him a simple question? We will never understand why people continue to vote democrat...
Click here to see clips of Alan Grayson's nasty, vulgar, insane and stupid comments and the REAL reason he hates FOX news.
OBAMA CALLS ALAN GRAYSON 'OUTSTANDING' Grayson Calls Woman 'K-St-Whore.' The REAL Reason 'Dirtbag' Alan Grayson Hates FOX News: Cavuto Schooled Him..
FLASHBACK! This debate several months ago is the real reason Grayson hates FOX news. Congressman Alan Grayson discusses legislation the Democrats are moving which is yet another cover vote for Democrats who worked to ensure the AIG bonuses would be paid. Alan Grayson is a total scumbag. Even some democrats despise him.
See video below to see what a nutcase Alan Grayson is. This is what represents the democratic party...Great debate on O'Reilly with DEMOCRATS Sestak and SOCIALIST MORON Anthony Weiner.
Well, it looks like O'Reilly wins this debate easily. Do you see the mindset of these democrats? They're so far out of touch with real Americans, common sense and are a perfect example of why Washington is so broken. Weiner must play 'field hockey.'
NEW JERSEY NOW OFFICIALLY HOLDS THE NEW TITLE OF DUMBEST VOTERS. Even Fireman and Teachers Unions are Selling Out...Corzine Ahead in Polls!
Is this sign supposed to be HELPING John Corzine?!? This billboard would sink Corzine IF people were smart and somewhat informed about Obama. Corzine can't win on his record because it's so pathetic. He's as corrupt as they come, and so is Obama.
So how does this 'Soprano state' governor and the 'Chicago way' President on display in billboards all over New Jersey (some not even in English) help the democrats? It's called 'dumb voters.' Will New Jersey ever learn? Even the FMBA fire union is supporting Corzine!?! Aren't fire unions supposed to have pride, morals, principles, patriotism and a spine? Do fireman, cops and teachers really support abortion, gay marriage, high taxes, ACORN, government health care, more entitlement programs, anti-gun laws, corruption, wasteful spending, affirmative action, green scams, 'cap and con' and more regulation to kill businesses, while keeping property taxes so high, people are leaving the state faster then people are losing their job?
Some fireman, teachers and cops will NOT sellout and thank god for that. The unions encouraging their members to vote for a man who has bankrupted and destroyed the state of New Jersey and a man who is as corrupt and incompetent as they come, is shameful!
Will the union members sell their soul down the river for a new contract or a 2% raise? If they do, it's disgraceful and a vote for any democrat is a vote to incentivize more corruption involving the unions. Unbelievable...
Even if Christie wins, and he's no Reagan, but still 20 times better than Corzine and his 'plant,' the other liberal Chris Daggett, the fact that it was so close still gives New Jersey the title of 'dumbest voters.' Move over California.....at least Cali is waking up. Pennsylvania isn't too far behind...
New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine leads Republican challenger Christopher Christie for the first time in their five-month slugfest, on top 43 - 38 percent among likely voters, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Independent candidate Christopher Daggett has 13 percent, with 5 percent undecided.
This compares to a 41 - 40 percent Christie lead, with 14 percent for Daggett, in an October 14 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University.
Among Daggett supporters, 38 percent say they might change their mind: 43 percent say Christie is their second choice, while 27 percent say Gov. Corzine is number two.
Only 12 percent of Christie voters and 19 percent of Corzine backers say they might change their mind.
Corzine leads 79 - 8 percent among Democratic likely voters, with 10 percent for Daggett. Christie leads 79 - 7 percent among Republicans, with 9 percent for Daggett, and 45 - 30 percent among independent voters, with 20 percent for Daggett. READ MORE...
This is a perfect example of why Obama supporters ARE idiots.

During his anti-Tea Party rant, Keith Olbermann showed a Facebook event page with only 192 confirmed attendees. But he was pulling a fast one on his viewers. What he didn't tell you is that we had just put the page up - only a few hours before! But he tried to make it look like our effort was dead. And he couldn't be further from the truth as thousands are now signing up.
So now help us prove Keith Olbermann wrong. One of the central elements of success for our Tea Party Express has been to generate large crowds. But with limited time before our launch we have to get the word out to large numbers, fast. One way we are doing that is by ramping up our TV and radio advertising campaign to get the word out to millions of Americans to come join our Tea Party Express rallies.
Stop the "Obamacare" Union Power Grab

I AM OUTRAGED THAT CONGRESS IS ATTEMPTING TO USE HEALTHCARE “REFORM” AS AN EXCUSE TO GRANT BIG LABOR MASSIVE NEW POWERS OVER MORE AMERICAN WORKERS.
THE TRUTH IS, NOT ONLY WOULD OBAMACARE HEAVILY TAX SMALL BUSINESSES’ HEALTH CARE PLANS, WHILE EXEMPTING BIG LABOR FROM THESE SAME TAXES, CORRALING EVEN MORE WORKERS INTO FORCED UNIONISM, BUT IT WOULD VIRTUALLY HAND BIG LABOR DIRECT ACCESS TO TAXPAYER DOLLARS AS THE MEDICAL BOARDS THAT DIRECT GOVERNMENT FUNDING WILL BE STACKED WITH UNELECTED BUREACRATS.
I URGE YOU, THEREFORE, TO VOTE AGAINST “OBAMACARE” -- OR ANY SIMILAR HEALTHCARE BILL THAT WOULD FORCE MORE WORKERS UNDERS UNION BOSS CONTROL!
Democrat Barney Frank: 'We Are Trying on Every Front to Increase the Role of Government' (3 Kooks on 1 Show)
Give Ed Schultz credit for something: on his MSNBC show this evening, he hosted an amusing smackdown between Barney Frank and Ralph Nader, perhaps the two most morose public men in America. For once, Barney was attacked from the left. The gist of Ralph's rebuke was that Frank hasn't gone far enough in regulating the financial industry.
Frank was finally so provoked that he claimed/admitted that when it comes to regulation, Democrats are "trying on every front to increase the role of government."
Along the way, Barney resorted to his tried-and-true technique of hitting his host for having the temerity to cut short one of his long-winded harangues.
Watch and enjoy as Messrs. Sweetness and Light go after each other.
PS: don't miss the video of Barney blasting Nader with this choice insult: "Ralph gets to luxuriate in the purity of his irrelevance." Ouch.
Republicans: What if Bush had done that? Secret deals, public snubs, rounds of golf — where Bush got skewered, Obama gets a pass.
The 'stuttering bullshitter' making his 'rounds.' Obama is your typical white elitist radical. A 'hope and change' con artist..

Snubbing the Dalai Lama.
Signing off on a secret deal with drug makers.
Freezing out a TV network.
Doing more fundraisers than the last president. More golf, too.
President Barack Obama has done all of those things — and more.
What’s remarkable is what hasn’t happened. These episodes haven’t become metaphors for Obama’s personal and political character — or consuming controversies that sidetracked the rest of his agenda.
It’s a sign that the media’s echo chamber can be a funny thing, prone to the vagaries of news judgment, and an illustration that, in politics, context is everything.
Conservatives look on with a mix of indignation and amazement and ask: Imagine the fuss if George W. Bush had done these things?
And quickly add, with a hint of jealousy: How does Obama get away with it?
“We have a joke about it. We’re going to start a website: IfBushHadDoneThat.com,” former Bush counselor Ed Gillespie said. “The watchdogs are curled up around his feet, sleeping soundly. ... There are countless examples: some silly, some serious.”
CNN Anchors Aren't That Smart. Anchors Sink On 'Jeopardy' CNN Drops to Last Place Among Cable News Networks; Disgraceful Journalism By MSNBC
It sucks to be biased doesn't it? It sucks to be a liberal too. Being dishonest, living in denial and ignoring facts can make one frustrated and angry, a typical liberals M.O. (Being unattractive is just random)
CNN, formerly known as the 'Clinton News Network,' is now known as the 'Communist News Network' for it's fawning coverage and protection of a Marxist Presidential candidate named Barack Hussein Obama. That coverage helped Obama get elected. CNN ignored the culture of corruption in the democratic party including Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Charlie Rangel, Chuck Schumer, Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, John Murtha, Valerie Jarrett, Michele Obama, Rahm Emanuel, the 'Ultimate Scumbag' David Axelrod, ACORN, Obama's radical associations, the Chicago style politics we are NOW seeing in the 'O' adminstration and the Czars. People are now saying, 'hey, FOX was right,' and they're turning the channel.
Other biased networks like MSNBC (run by GE, in the pocket of Obama and 'healthymaginations') even went so far as to alter a photo and video of a black libertarian at a town hall holding a rifle, trying to make it look like a white conservative man! More 'white male bashing' at MSNBC and a pathetic display of journalism by CNN's Susan Roesgen at a Tea Party in Chicago, that didn't help her (former) network in the ratings. See videos below...
What a disgrace this reporter is. It shows not only what a bitch she is, but how out of touch elitist liberals are with mainstream America. This incident turned a lot of people away from CNN and a website was launched to get Susan Roesgen fired. She eventually was as CNN didn't renew her contract.
Busted! MSNBC Caught Dishonestly Editing Town Hall Gun Footage (below)
What the hell are they talking about? Notice how MSNBC shows the man with a rifle (who hap pend to be black) but keep the video low so you can't identify his skin color. They then pan to a white guy getting interviewed with no weapon, and point the camera at his empty hip, as if this was the 'white' guy with the gun. Unbelievable!
Contessa Brewer is more 'self-loathing' and spineless than Bill Maher. That's pretty bad. Bill Wilson, president of Americans for Limited Government, is now calling on the network to fire those responsible for producing the broadcast, in what he describes as a "nefarious assault on decency."
"On behalf of the nearly half million members of Americans for Limited Government — and tens of millions of other equally appalled Americans of all races nationwide — I hereby demand the immediate termination of Contessa Brewer, Toure, Dylan Ratigan and any and all others involved in any way with the fraudulent news that ran in the 10:45AM segment of your August 18 broadcast."
Wilson sent the letters to NBC News President Steve Capus and GE / MSNBC president Jeffrey Immelt.
It's no wonder.....

Get ready, America: Great Depression 2.0. Author who predicted current crisis shows why it's 'only the beginning'
Drawing striking comparisons between the Japanese economy in 1988 and the American economy today, a new book by an author who predicted the current crisis warns it's going to get much worse before it gets better.
Vox Day, a WND columnist, asserts in "The Return of the Great Depression," by WND Books, the U.S. is only now entering the early stages of the Second Great Depression.
Day presents a fact-rich case, rooted in economic history and time-tested theory, in which he concludes that an economic contraction of very large proportions is developing.
But he contends that "due to a reactive wave of positive social mood, statistical obfuscation and understandable denial, it will take about a year for the consensus opinion to cycle through the various scenarios in descending order of optimism before the grim reality finally becomes apparent to even the casual observer."
Though the message is stark, Day believes the book is a much-needed antidote to the self-interested optimism of the financial media.
Get "The Return of the Great Depression," autographed, at WND's Superstore
Published on the 80th anniversary of the 1929 stock market crash, the book offers a detailed analysis of recent economic and monetary policies to show why pundits on both the left and the right didn't foresee the current calamity.
Day's credibility is bolstered by his prediction seven years ago of the collapse of the housing market and the destruction of the financial services industry, in addition to some remarkably precise market forcasts.
In a Sept.23, 2002, WND column, he wrote:
There can be little doubt that the implosion of the equity markets will soon be followed by the pricking of the credit and real estate bubbles. As great financial houses such as Citigroup and JP Morgan Chase teeter on the edge of bankruptcy, it is well within the realm of possibility that the triple whammy of the equity, credit and real estate implosions will lead to the collapse of the entire global financial system.

Is the indoctrination by radical flea bag professors like Bill Ayers working?
DURHAM — A worldwide event promoting climate change awareness was carried out locally Saturday by a coalition of young adults who organized the painting of a 40-foot mural in the downtown.
The University of New Hampshire Student Environmental Action Coalition (SEAC) and the Durham Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) co-sponsored the painting of the mural, which is on the side of the Out Back Gift Shop on Main Street. Organizers unveiled the mural at a ceremony Saturday morning as part of an international campaign coordinated by 350.org.
According to Alex Fried, one of the organizers, there are scientific studies that have shown 350 parts per million is the most carbon dioxide that can safely be in Earth’s atmosphere. He said the current CO2 concentration is around 390 ppm, so the campaign aims to urge world leaders to act on climate change. READ MORE...

People will need to turn vegetarian if the world is to conquer climate change, according to a leading authority on global warming.
In an interview with The Times, Lord Stern of Brentford said: “Meat is a wasteful use of water and creates a lot of greenhouse gases. It puts enormous pressure on the world’s resources. A vegetarian diet is better.”
Direct emissions of methane from cows and pigs is a significant source of greenhouse gases. Methane is 23 times more powerful than carbon dioxide as a global warming gas.
Lord Stern, the author of the influential 2006 Stern Review on the cost of tackling global warming, said that a successful deal at the Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in December would lead to soaring costs for meat and other foods that generate large quantities of greenhouse gases.

Read it and weep libbs. Conservatives are more charitable, happy, attractive and smart...that's why when liberals run for office (Obama) they have to lie and appear more 'center' to win an election. The only place a liberal can run on being a liberal is San Fran Weirdo, Taxachusetts and New Pork City..
PRINCETON, NJ -- Conservatives continue to outnumber moderates and liberals in the American populace in 2009, confirming a finding that Gallup first noted in June. Forty percent of Americans describe their political views as conservative, 36% as moderate, and 20% as liberal. This marks a shift from 2005 through 2008, when moderates were tied with conservatives as the most prevalent group.
The 2009 data are based on 16 separate Gallup surveys conducted from January through September, encompassing more than 5,000 national adults per quarter. Conservatives have been the dominant ideological group each quarter, with between 39% and 41% of Americans identifying themselves as either "very conservative" or "conservative." Between 35% and 37% of Americans call themselves "moderate," while the percentage calling themselves "very liberal" or "liberal" has consistently registered between 20% and 21% -- making liberals the smallest of the three groups.

THE CHICAGO WAY: How Did Rahm Emanuel Make $16 Million in Three Years As an Investment Banker? (Obama aide had stint at Freddie)
We call Obama supporters idiots for a reason. Rahm is one of them..
Reporting from Chicago — Before its portfolio of bad loans helped trigger the housing crisis, mortgage giant Freddie Mac was the focus of a major accounting scandal that led to a management shake-up, huge fines and scalding condemnation of passive directors.
One of those board members was Rahm Emanuel, now chief of staff to President Obama. Emanuel earned at least $320,000 for his 14-month stint at Freddie Mac.
Emanuel plays a critical role in addressing the nation's mortgage woes and fulfilling the administration's pledge to impose responsibility on the financial world -- the type of responsibility that appeared to be absent at Freddie Mac.
Emanuel, 49, is a veteran Democratic strategist and fundraiser who served three terms in the U.S. House after helping elect President Clinton and serving as his White House political director. The Freddie Mac money was part of $16 million that Emanuel earned in three years as an investment banker a decade ago.
Clinton appointed him to the Freddie Mac board in February 2000.
The board met no more than six times a year. Unlike most directors, Emanuel was not assigned to any of the board's working committees, according to company proxy statements. A spokeswoman for Emanuel disputed that.
Emanuel and other new directors qualified for more than $300,000 in stock and options plus a $20,000 annual fee, records indicate.
During Emanuel's stint on the board, Freddie Mac executives told the board of a plan to use accounting techniques to maximize profits that the government-chartered firm was reaping from risky investments, a 2003 investigative report found.
The report by Armando Falcon Jr., director of the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight, found that the goal was to shift earnings into the future, ensuring that Freddie Mac would appear profitable for years. Falcon noted that this action boosted executives' subsequent annual bonuses.
Falcon criticized the board for its acquiescence, saying it "became complacent" and "failed to make adequate inquiries of management and obtain sufficient information upon which to make decisions." His criticism was little noticed at the time.
The ensuing scandal forced Freddie Mac to restate $5 billion in earnings and pay $585 million in fines and legal settlements.
Because every member of congress in the democratic party is poor right? Like MILLIONAIRES Charlie Rangel, Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, John Kerry, Maxine Waters, Chris Dodd, Barney Frank, Chuck Schumer, the Kennedy, Clinton, Gore families and others are just so broke!

'ObamaCare' Cannot Wait But General McChrystal Can? Barack Obama must stop campaigning and start governing...
Can you believe people are still falling for the 'can't waits' and the 'if we don't act now' scare tactics right out of the Saul Alinsky playbook? Idiots...
Perhaps we should not be surprised that the land of the permanent campaign has produced a president like Barack Obama. During his White House bid, Mr Obama's staff argued that his masterful oversight of the machinery that ultimately got him elected was his highest achievement.
In many respects this was true, though Mr Obama was more chairman than CEO. Even Republican political operatives acknowledge that the Obama '08 campaign was a thing of beauty.
Essentially, however, Mr Obama won because of his persona – post-racial, healing, cool, articulate and inspirational. In a sense, therefore, his greatest achievement in life is being Barack Obama. Or the campaign version, at least.
Therein lies the problem. While campaigning could centre around soaring rhetoric, governing is altogether messier. It involves tough, unpopular choices and cutting deals with opponents. It requires doing things rather than talking about them, let alone READ MORE...
Via the boss, who sees Laura Ingraham’s blast at ABC’s retiring anchor as the highlight of this lengthy exchange yesterday on ABC’s This Week. It’s classic Ingraham — contentious, iconoclastic, and dead-on accurate, which is why she’s probably right that ABC will be reluctant to put her on another panel in the future. However, George Will perfectly captured the Obama administration’s foolishness on the Fox War just before Ingraham blasted Gibson:
No president in the history of the Republic has less reason to complain about his treatment in the press than Barack Obama. Liberals have Academia, they have the mainstream media, they have Hollywood. They’re all for diversity in everything but thought.
And out here is this one channel, Fox, and they’re all up in arms because, in the words of Ms. Anita Dunn of the White House, it is “opinion journalism masquerading as news,” which some of us would say describes the New York Times and certainly MS-NBC. READ MORE...
FORE!!!! Obama plays more golf in 9 months than Bush did in nearly three years. (Unemployment soars like the deficit)
President Barack Obama has only been in office for just over nine months, but he's already hit the links as much as President Bush did in over two years.
CBS' Mark Knoller — an unofficial documentarian and statistician of all things White House-related — wrote on his Twitter feed that, "Today - Obama ties Pres. Bush in the number of rounds of golf played in office: 24.
Took Bush 2 yrs & 10 months." POLITICO
This news comes on the heels of today's news that Obama played golf with a woman — chief domestic policy adviser Melody Barnes — for the first time since taking office.
Obama plays golf, basketball and appears on late night talk shows because he doesn't know how to lead or manage a nation. He just knows how to hustle and it's starting to show for the 'late ones.'
Another double standard for democrats. The hypocrisy of liberals is astounding; it's why we call them 'idiots.'

Isn't MIT supposed to be a school for really smart people? If so, then why are the students clapping? Maybe they're just intelligent, naive idiots.. Is there such a thing?
We could understand if Obama 'kind of lied' and stuttered without his teleprompter from time to time, but he does it constantly! It's almost pathetic to watch it, if it wasn't so funny..
If MIT, Berkeley and Columbia students are supposed to have far superior intelligence than other college students, then why do they let Obama insult it every time he opens his mouth?

Pelosi: Constitutionality of individual mandates not “serious” question. How did this retard become Speaker of the House?!?
First Patrick Leahy scoffed at questions over whether the federal government has the authority to order Americans to buy a particular product, even though that has never happened in our 233-year history, and now the Speaker of the House claims that the question is “not serious.” CNS News has the audio of Nancy Pelosi providing the Democratic dodge on the constitutionality question:
CNSNews.com: “Madam Speaker, where specifically does the Constitution grant Congress the authority to enact an individual health insurance mandate?”
Pelosi: “Are you serious? Are you serious?”
CNSNews.com: “Yes, yes I am.”
