Hump Day Report: The Audacity of Hypocrisy
ALOHA, ALL!!! Hypocrisy is the state of pretending to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that one does not actually have. Hypocrisy involves the deception of others and is thus a kind of lie. Not to be confused with Hippocrates or Hypocorism. (Wikipedia) The Obama administration is the epitome of hypocrisy. OK…yes I know most politicians are hypocritical. But Obama and his administration make all others look like saints. And here’s a recent example. Obama said this in 1996 about how the average American feels about political donors getting access to politicians: ”They can’t attend a $10,000 breakfast and they know that those who can are going to get the kind of access they can’t imagine.” Well Barry sure has changed in 16 years: Hypocrisy and White House Opens Doors to Big Donors ”Although Mr. Obama has made a point of not accepting contributions from registered lobbyists, a review of campaign donations and White House visitor logs shows that special interests have had little trouble making themselves heard. Many of the president’s biggest donors, while not lobbyists, took lobbyists with them to the White House, while others performed essentially the same function on their visits.” So step right up, folks! A mere $35,800 will get you “the kind of access you can’t imagine.”
Why am I not surprised?? Democrats Punt on Senate Budget Bill for Third Year ”In a stunning backtrack that virtually guarantees Congress for the third year will be unable to produce a budget, Senate Democrats’ top budget writer Tuesday canceled this week’s expected votes on a 2013 fiscal blueprint.”
Say it ain’t so! Did Big Sis lie????? Napolitano Perjured Herself in “Fast and Furious” Testimony ”In her explosive new book Fast and Furious, Katie Pavlich makes the case that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano not only failed to stop an operation that led to the death of one of her own, Border Agent Brian A. Terry, but she may have also lied to Congress in sworn testimony at a hearing held to find out what really happened.”
THIS IS TOO GOOD TO NOT POST: Rush tells us who his daughter would look like And it’s not Hilary Rosen
Too Funny! I think David is a little stressed:
“The choice in this election is between an economy that produces a growing middle class and that gives people a chance to get ahead, and their kids a chance to get ahead, and an economy that continues down the road we’re on.” Ha Ha!! All Romney has to do is run this clip as a campaign ad about 500 times.
OORAH!!! US Marines Give President Obama Lowest Rating Ever ”The Marine Corps Times published the results of a Military Times survey that indicated that Obama only received a 25% approval rating amongst actively serving Marines and 44% said they disapproved of Obama’s performance as Commander-in-Chief.” TRIVIA QUESTION: Who wore a HOOAH pin recently on several TV appearances? Click HERE to find out. Hint – Jon Stewart couldn’t resist mocking it. (And yes…I know that “Hooah” is an Army battle cry. It’s the equivalent of the Marine’s “OORAH.”)
Voter Fraud, Continued. This time it’s Ben Jealous, Bill Maher and David Brock:
Hey Eric Holder – listen to the people! 73% Think Voter ID Does Not Discriminate ”Most voters consider voter fraud a problem in America today and continue to overwhelmingly support laws requiring people to show photo identification before being allowed to vote.”
BREAKING NEWS! Issa Says He Is Moving Forward With Contempt Charges Against Holder ”According to Issa and Senator Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, who is investigating the (Fast and Furious) scandal in the Senate, Holder has turned over only ten percent of the subpoenaed documents necessary for Congressional staffers to conduct their investigation.”
Finally, the icing on the cake is a report from the New York Times that I just came across, which details how the EPA is fining businesses for failing to use a type of biofuel that is not commercially available: When the companies that supply motor fuel close the books on 2011, they will pay about $6.8 million in penalties to the Treasury because they failed to mix a special type of biofuel into their gasoline and diesel as required by law. But there was none to be had. Outside a handful of laboratories and workshops, the ingredient, cellulosic biofuel, does not exist: “A Fine for Not Using A Biofuel That Doesn’t Exist,” New York Times, 9-Jan-2012.
