News for the day
First up, I'd like to say a couple things about the old witch that retired yesterday after she was dropped by her agency as a client. Neither of us are shedding tears that the Anti-Semitic old buzzard is gone. As far as we're concerned, she should have retired a couple decades ago. I remember first seeing Helen Thomas berating President Reagan's press secretary, Larry Speakes, over the Iran-Contra affair. We also will never forget the day that Tony Snow slammed the door on the Anti-Semitic old hag when she was criticizing the US's actions during the Israeli/Lebanon War in 2006. Good riddance to bad rubbish, and by all means Helen, DLTDHYWTGLSY. (I'd be remiss if I didn't note that a few of her colleagues weren't thrilled with her outspoken nature and apparent lack of objectivity. Of course, that's almost a pot and kettle moment, no?)
Second, Barry seems to be getting a tad angry over the criticism he's taking over the Gulf oil spill. (To be fair, he could've done something sooner, but he was too busy playing golf and having his entertainment nights at the White House to really give a rat's @$$ about a massive oil spill.) Last night he was interviewed by Matt Lauer and let this part of the exchange fly:
I was down there a month ago, before most of these talking heads were even paying attention to the gulf. A month ago I was meeting with fishermen down there, standing in the rain talking about what a potential crisis this could be. And I don't sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar. We talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers so I know whose ass to kick.
Sorry Barry, but unlike you, the talking heads were all over this spill from "Day One." Most talking heads, and your looney tree-hugging special interests, were screaming at you to do something. In fact, one Day One, Mark Levin reminded listeners that under the Clean Water Act (passed by Congress, and signed by President Nixon that would've allowed Barry to federalize the spill, and begin clean-up) he was mandated to take action. But he didn't. Instead, he played the blame game, which is often the case in DC politics. He has blamed British Petroleum. He has blamed Governor Bobby Jindal for being a pain in his backside. He has blamed everyone except himself. It must be hard to kick that ass when one's head is so far up it.
Third, It's primary day across the country. Well, at least it's some serious primaries that people have been keeping a close eye on. And there's the run-off in Arkansas where it appears that Lt. Gov. Bill Halter might actually take out Blanch Lincoln. Again, good riddance. In California, the primaries are on who will have the honor of taking on Barbara Boxer and Jerry Brown in November. Good luck to Meg Whitman. She can take out Governor Moonbeam Brown (he was a former governor, for those keeping track of history), and Good luck to either Chuck Devore or Carly Fiorina in their efforts to knock off Boxer. And good luck to Niki Haley in South Carolina. Forget the mudslinging crap coming from her opponents. She's leading her GOP opponents by close to 20 points. Kudos to all of the Nevada candidates, and whoever manages to win the primary -- Sharron Angle, Sue Lowden, or Danny Tarkanian -- Godspeed in removing Harry Reid from the US Senate. All in all, today will be an interesting day in America's political landscape, and hopefully on that has Democrats wetting their pants over who they'll have to face.
Fourth, Nancy Pelosi made an absolute fool of herself yesterday with a speech. See, she not only had to deal with a bunch of hecklers, criticizing her over a host of issues, but she decided to pull out the big guns and blame Republicans for the lack of action on the BP oil spill, and the outrageous deficits being run up by Congress. Um, Nancy, you and your cronies have been in charge of Congress since January of last year. Kind of hard to put the blame at the feet of the MINORITY party, don't you think?
Lastly, The Politico is reporting that Barry is reshaping the federal judiciary with an "unprecedented number" of female and minority nominees. Again, this shows the complete lack of attention the president has to the American electorate. The public doesn't give a rat's @$$ about the number of minority jurists on the federal bench; they want competent jurists that follow the rule of law, the US Constitution, and don't attempt to rewrite the bloody thing to suit social needs. In other words, they want originalist-minded jurists. They don't want judges that see things in the Constitution that aren't there. So, Barry can pat himself on the back for nominating minorities, but the public won't be pleased by his picks. All we need to do is look at his Supreme Court picks to see he clearly is pushing an agenda of judicial activism and social justice. Neither have a damn thing to do with interpreting the highest law in the land.
