"They're my nukes…" Let's eat cake.

Remember the Irishman in Braveheart who declared that Ireland, "is my island!"Seems President Obama thinks our nuclear arsenal is his weaponry.Thank Ace for the boldface:Obama has rejected the Pentagon's first draft of the "nuclear posture review" as being too timid, and has called for a range of more far-reaching options consistent with his goal of eventually abolishing nuclear weapons altogether, according to European officials. ... The review is due to be completed by the end of this … [Read more...]

Wilson Wrong, Obama did not lie!

"Even though I do not believe we can extend coverage to those who are here illegally, I also don't simply believe we can simply ignore the fact that our immigration system is broken," Mr. Obama said Wednesday evening in a speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute. "That's why I strongly support making sure folks who are here legally have access to affordable, quality health insurance under this plan, just like everybody else.Mr. Obama added, "If anything, this debate underscores … [Read more...]

I believe Obama rejects Carter's charge – UPDATED

In a post below, I noted a tweet from CBS' Mark Knoller:Rejecting Jimmy Carter analysis, WH spksmn Gibbs says Pres. Obama does not blv that criticism of him comes based on the color of his skin.I twittered back: I believe this constant cry of racism is probably disheartening and distasteful to Obama. Perhaps he should say something.To which Knoller replied: i'm sure he would if asked since a former US pres made the comment.Whether a president who sees his country coming to a full rolling … [Read more...]

Hey, whatever happened to Hillary, anyway? -UPDATED

“I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic, and we should stand up and say, ‘WE ARE AMERICANS AND WE HAVE A RIGHT TO DEBATE AND DISAGREE WITH ANY ADMINISTRATION!’”Do you think we could get Hillary to re-record that, and just change the words "not patriotic" to "a racist"?Meanwhile, here is Rep. Maxine Waters, who earlier this year got herself all worked up about the evil people with access to private jets, … [Read more...]

The ACORN Grows into a Mighty Mess

Regular readers know I don't ordinarily cover the big, sensationalist stories that go viral through the blogosphere, unless I feel I have something to contribute, so I haven't said much of anything about these shocking videos of ACORN workers advising an undercover "pimp" and "ho" as to how they can get housing, evade taxes and -most repellent- traffic in underage prostitutes brought in from Latin America.I had incorrectly and naively assumed that given the nature of the relationship between … [Read more...]

No, I did not watch Obama's speech

Derek Jeter started the game needing three hits to tie Lou Gehrig's record of hits-as-a-Yankee.He got the three hits during the game (and he was a class act as he did it), plus he got his 300th stolen base, and then Jorge Posada hit a splendid three-run homer to top it all off.I have my priorities. It mattered much more to see all that than to hear Obama say what I've heard him say before.Tepid political theater is no match for a good ballgame. And if I have a choice between looking at … [Read more...]

Clearing out the tab

I've got some deadlines to meet and a project I'd like to get started, so I need to stop futzing around, reading news and blogs and get to it. Here is what's been cluttering up my tab-bar for the last day or so - it's a bit of a jumble, sorry:Malta, shamelessly cribbed from CrescatBeautiful Malta! Where Doug Kmiec is the new US Ambassador after what Dan Gilgoff describes as a "strange religious/political" swearing in. Kmiec is the Catholic former Reagan WH Legal Counsel who campaigned … [Read more...]

The Pinnacle: slim, sharp & lonely

Catching up on all the stories since I have been away and I must have missed this one when it broke - the header: Democrat: Republicans hate ObamaCare because they’re racists. Also, Castro’s a genius.The Democrat is Rep. Diane Watson (D-California). Watson is both African-American and female, so she is speaking from the fake ledge of "absolute moral authority" which was once the province of Cindy Sheehan until she stopped being a useful bat for to beat around the Bush, with. From Watson's led … [Read more...]

The word of the week is "crazy" – UPDATED

UPDATE: Please note, I had a copy of the projected deficit chart which you can see here included with this piece, but it apparently violated my photohost's terms of use.So the Journolist or whoever it is who co-ordinates the narratives for the Mainstream Media, seem to have settled on the word "crazy," and "insane," to describe people who are not "moderates," like them.If you do not like this chart and think something should be done about it, you are "crazy"From the LA Times: … [Read more...]

Obama & Co Theater: Chaos & Cajolery UPDATED

Okay, so...60 days into this new presidency, it looks to me like we're going to spend the next four years watching a non-stop play of infinite acts. With none of the wit or wisdom of Pride & Prejudice, Obama and Company are going to treat us to Chaos & Cajolery.Basically, the theater production is 137 acts (presented without intermission) of Barack Obama and/or any one of his supporting players (from the veep, the speaker, the secstate, the sectreas and on down to the lowly press … [Read more...]
