Limited Modified Hangout (source: Watergate) – A limited hangout is a means of propaganda by exposing some minor details in order to prevent the full exposure of greater secrets:
Drudge: DID PRESS MAKE OBAMA CRY? ”People have got to know whether or not their President is a crook. Well, I’m not a crook. I’ve earned everything I’ve got.”
Groucho Marx: “I once shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I’ll never know” Maybe he has blamed his opponents one time too many? Maybe he has spouted gibberish his last time without scrutiny? Serious people now see a possible end to our national nightmare. (GILIA SAYS: I HOPE SO, CARL!!!!)

ALOHA, ALL!! You’ve no doubt heard about or seen the Newsweek cover claiming Romney has a “wimp factor” problem. Well, I think it’s fair to call someone a wimp on the cover of a national rag OOPS! publication. In fact, here are some future covers that Newsweek may want to consider
So what gives Newsweek the basis for calling Romney a wimp? I guess just…well…because. But if you want to see a champion, gold-medal-worthy wimp, look no further than Dirty Harry Reid. This guy is in a different league! He now claims to have an anonymous source telling him that Mitt Romney hasn’t paid taxes for 10 years: Romney Is Guilty Of My Evidence-Free Accusations Until He Proves Himself Innocent Bravo, wimp extraordinaire!!!!! What’s next, calling Romney a felon? Oh yeah, that already happened. Anyhow, Harry, we’ll always remember this classic speech from you:
Gee – I wonder what Harry Reid’s Senate will do? House Extends All Bush-Era Tax Rates ”With lawmakers about to leave Washington for a five-week recess, the House action amounts to little more than a campaign message. Both parties have jumped headfirst into the tax debate, a confidence reflected in the political votes the Democratic-controlled Senate and GOP-led House have taken in consecutive weeks.”
Meanwhile: Has Any Administration Policy NOT Killed Jobs Lately? ”Reid is a major driver of these tax increases and job-killing policies. He has abused his authority as majority leader to block the minority party from the opportunity to offer amendments more than 60 times, more than all of his predecessors combined.” TODAY’S JOBS REPORT: The unemployment rate ticked up to 8.3 percent, 12.8 million Americans are out of work, and 5.2 million have been out of work for at least a half a year. NOTE: the real unemployment rate – including unemployed and underemployed – is now 15%.
Definitely not a wimp! America’s Jewish Gymnastics Star Clinches Gold To The Tune Of ‘Hava Nagila’ ”Watching a strong, beautiful Jewish woman finish her last tumbling pass, triumphant, as the whole stadium clapped along to a Hebrew folk song of celebration was a great moment— a moving, joyous contrast to Munich and an example of the kind of cultural tribute that’s unstoppable in free people, no matter what the IOC says.” Take that, IOC! BTW…Aly was the one who was actually singing the National Anthem as the Stars and Stripes were raised! And how about that Gabby Douglas???? USA! USA!
Of course, the IRS will get its share of those Olympic medals (Shaka to George for the link). Win A Medal, Pay The Price “That prize money is taxed at a rate of as much as 35 percent, Americans for Tax Reform calculated. On top of that, the medals themselves are taxed: You only have to fork over $2 to the IRS for the privilege of keeping your bronze medal, but carve off $236 worth from that gold medal.” Marco Rubio thinks this is wrong: Rubio Introduces Bill To Eliminate Olympic Medal Tax ”Rubio’s Olympic Tax Elimination Act would amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to strike taxes on American athletes’ Olympic medals and prize money. The law would retroactively apply to Olympic winnings after December 31, 2011.”
We Ate Mor Chikin!! Chick-fil-A Americans Give Big Government The Bird ”Millions of Americans across the country lined up for hours to buy chicken sandwiches — and take a stand for free speech. That’s a de facto demonstration, from a public fed up with overweening big government.” I got emails from many of you across the country about how the crowds were phenomenal! I especially like this story from HDR reader Steve: Ted Cruz Serves Chick-fil-A At Victory party Read more about Ted Cruz here: Tea Party Staying Power – The Ted Cruz Victory He’s a rising star! I saw him speak in Hawaii once – great guy!

ALOHA, ALL!! Another one bites the dust. So how many of these “Green” companies have gone bust? I can’t keep count anymore. There was Solyndra and recently Dirty Harry Reid’s pet project near Las Vegas, Amonix. Now this one – Abound Solar. Here’s a list as of April 2 – add at least two more: Solargate: Solar Companies That Have Gone Bankrupt BTW, I think Darrell Issa is the hardest working person in Washington!
Your Friday LOL moment: ”I would wake up every single day, every single day and spend every waking hour thinking about you. Fighting as hard as I knew how for you. Because I see myself in you.” Yeah – he’s “focused like a laser beam” on jobs. HA HA HA!!
ICYMI: TSA Let 25 Illegal Aliens Attend Flight School Owned By Illegal Alien ”We have cancer patients, Iraq War veterans and Nobel Prize winners all forced to undergo rigorous security checks before getting on an airplane,” said Rogers, “and at the same time, ten years after 9/11, there are foreign nationals in the United States trained to fly just like Mohammed Atta and the other 9/11 hijackers did, and not all of them are necessarily getting a security background check.”
I used to like Megyn Kelly. But I’ve had it with her. The other day she said she wasn’t “sure” about how the 71-year-old guy had fended off attackers at an internet cafe with his gun. Now, she’s condoned racist Jehmu Greene by continuing to have her appear on her show, even after Greene made a blatant racist comment about Tucker Carlson being a “bow tyin’ white boy.” Great overview by Mychal Massie: Is Jehmu Greene Worth It To Megyn Kelly And Fox News?
BLOCKBUSTER New Romney ad! Interesting how Barry *hearts* all these dead-end green businesses but slaps the REAL job creators in the face. I just saw the business owner in this ad, Jack Gilchrist, interviewed by Neil Cavuto. Great guy! I think the owner of Pro Deck in Columbus, Ohio needs to do one of these ads
This is just plain weird. Obama Photo Forgery ”The Black male hand under Obama’s right armpit does not match Dunham’s right arm and there are many other photo anomalies.” I went to the Barack Obama Facebook page myself and sure enough, there was the photo. I wonder how much longer it will be there??

ALOHA, ALL!! Faithful HDR readers know I’m a staunch Buckeye – I bleed scarlet & gray! But today I gotta give shakas to people from two rival territories: Scott Walker from Wisconsin and Tim Tebow from Florida. YOU GUYS ROCK!! Net Gain of 33,000 jobs in Wisconsin in Scott Walker’s First Year ”Barrett’s campaign is accusing Walker of cherry-picking data and playing politics by accelerating the publication of the CEW results. However, the accusation of cherry-picking is nonsense. The CEW is an actual census of employers in the state, not a survey based on a sample of households.” But some people are very unhappy with Walker – his opponents: Pro Scott Walker Signs Burned On Private Property Nice. If you can’t beat ‘em, torch ‘em! Here’s why they’re not happy, poor babies: Walker, Kleefisch Lead In Recall June 5 – GO WALKER!! Ten Tips for Tim Tebow ”A good, God fearing man, born to Christian missionaries, comes to New York to help the team win. How will he handle the Big City, and will the media give him a chance?” GO TEBOW! In Other News: Team Romney WILL beat Team Obama. Here’s why: Romney’s team is smart – they are staying positive and focused. They refuse to get pulled into the mire of what Super PACs might do (the PACs will do whatever they want anyhow.) Then there’s this. Obama in Tight Primary Race in Arkansas Yep….right in Clinton Country he’s only 7 points ahead of an unknown! And here’s how Team Romney is using this: ”Seeking to attract Democrats and independents who supported the last Democratic president, Romney has taken to lavishing praise at every turn on Clinton’s boom-era ’90s policies while contrasting them unfavorably with President Barack Obama’s old-school, Big Government ways.” I repeat….Team Romney WILL beat Team Obama. Obama budget voted down. Again. 99-0. A Glimmer of Hope for the American Dream ”Compare the President’s proposal — and Reid’s total lack of a proposal — with the four plans offered by conservatives in Congress, chief among them being Senator Mike Lee’s (R-UT) budget, which mirrors the bold and thorough reforms The Heritage Foundation first proposed in its Saving the American Dream plan. That includes limiting the size of the federal government, reforming entitlement programs, and simplifying the federal tax code in an effort to restore our nation’s economic prosperity and ensure that future generations are not saddled with today’s debt.” Harry Reid – epic FAIL! Senate Rejects Five Budget Plans “Democrats can’t even put a plan on a piece of paper,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican. “As far as I can tell, their only plan is to take shots at our plans and hope nobody notices that they don’t have one of their own.” The votes, he said, will show the public “who’s got a plan to fix the mess we’re in and who doesn’t.” WHY ARE WE STILL BUYING OIL FROM VENEZUELA?? Dick Morris explains in this video how Iran is shipping missiles to Chavez – missiles that can easily strike the US. The story that just won’t go away. I wonder why? Proof Obama Born in Kenya? Obama Literary Agent Says So ”Breitbart News has obtained a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama’s then-literary agency, Acton & Dystel, which touts Obama as “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.” UPDATE: Literary Agent Now Claims “Fact-Checking Error.” OK…so why did Obama say ”I am so proud to come back home”? While speaking in Kenya in 2006???? Is this also a “fact-checking error?” GREAT video from Susan B Anthony List! Final Thought: “Any time you give a man something he doesn’t earn, you cheapen him.

ALOHA, ALL!! Have you noticed how the Democrats are suddenly and mysteriously silent about gun control lately? While there was some chatter after Gabriel Giffords was shot, they haven’t said a word especially in light of the school shooting in Ohio. What gives? Have they suddenly realized that the Second Amendment gives us a constitutional right to bear arms? Don’t hold your breath – it’s merely a political move. It seems that more and stricter gun control measures are less popular than ever. Has Fast & Furious turned around and bitten them in their despicable okoles? Some stats:
- Support for an outright ban on handguns is at an all time low of just 26%
- More Americans oppose (53%) rather than support (43%) a ban on semi-automatics (or so-called “assault riffles”), a flip from the peak of Democrat led gun hysteria in the 1990’s
- Fewer Americans than ever – just 43% – say gun laws should be “more strict”, while 44% say “less strict” and 11% say “kept the same”
- And 60% say that we should better enforce current laws, with only 35% supporting passage of more laws
So the Democrats realize that pushing for gun control is a LOSER issue for them heading into November. Which is exactly why the Republicans should seize upon it. Here’s a great, no-nonsense commentary: The campaign dog that hasn’t barked – yet | Conservative Outpost Summed up in a couple of sentences: ”Remember, issues win campaigns. And the fact that Democrats aren’t talking about guns means that they don’t want to. Make them.”
Where has all the ammo gone? This notice appears on the site Georgia Arms It seems Obama and the Democrats have been good for business. In fact, sales of guns and ammo have been at high levels for the past three years. Have you bought yours yet? Gun Sales In America Soar … AGAIN (Shaka to Lee for the links)
In Other News:
Mark Levin: I will donate $50,000 to Obama if he will debate me for one hour « Hot Air I would LOVE to see this one!!!!!! ”I’ll tell you what — I will give, are you ready for this Mr. Producer? I will give $50,000 to Obama’s Super PAC if he will debate me for one hour.” Since Obama has been traveling the country in search of smaller donations, Levin asked, why not take him up on his bigger offer?”
One of the best ads I’ve seen in a LONG time! (Shaka to Dick for the link)
Harry Reid Reverses Course on Judges; Political Stunt Backfires Ha Ha!!! Harry needs to go back to Nevada and his pomegranate trees. ”Reid, hoping to paint Republicans as obstructionists on judges, held up passage of the House-approved JOBS Act. Reid charged that the minority had “refused to allow us to even vote” on nominees and “prevented the Senate from doing its constitutional duty.” But those bombastic claims were easily dismissed by a quick review of history.”

ALOHA, ALL!! I know you’ll enjoy this illustration. It’s another great depiction from Antonio Branco and needs no explanation.

Antonio’s cartoon shows why they’re attracted to him.
We don’t need no stinkin’ jobs! This is priceless – Accuracy in Media went down to the OWS utopia in D.C. as “headhunters,” telling people that they were hiring.

ALOHA, ALL!! You’ll be asking the same question when you hear the latest about Solyndra. It turns out internal documents relating to Solyndra show signs of being altered by the Department of Energy. This comes in the midst of the White House refusing to turn over the Solyndra documents. (Sidenote: the documents that have shared are so heavily redacted that they pretty much look like sheets of paper full of black marks.) HUH??? Why aren’t heads rolling over this entire fiasco?? And check it – the source for this story is not Fox News or some “right-wing” media outlet, but CNBC of all places: Energy Department Altered Loan-Related Releases – US Business News – CNBC But it looks like the DoE realized the gig was up and returned the documents to their original content as a result of CNBC’s inquiry about the changes. What…so that makes it all go away???? These criminals in this administration need to pay for their abuses. In the Solyndra case, that’s means Energy Secretary Steven Chu is at the top of the list (he’s standing next to “Big Sis” Janet Napolitano in the picture above.) This is a guy who wants gas to be $9 a gallon. He wants everyone to move to cities, get rid of their cars and only use public transportation. He doesn’t care that many of America’s goods are delivered by trucks, and that rising gas prices mean rising prices for…well…lots of other things, too. He’s so far from reality he lives in his own little universe. Just like his boss. Then again, he lives in DC.

Car Company Gets U.S. Loan, Builds Cars In Finland – Common American Journal ”With the approval of the Obama administration, an electric car company that received a $529 million federal government loan guarantee is assembling its first line of cars in Finland, saying it could not find a facility in the United States capable of doing the work. Vice President Joseph Biden heralded the Energy Department’s $529 million loan to the start-up electric car company called Fisker as a bright new path to thousands of American manufacturing jobs..”
More stonewalling and corruption exposed. Rep. Issa: NLRB Withheld Emails Showing ‘Lack of Impartiality’ in Boeing Case ”House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa accused the National Labor Relations Board of another misstep in the agency’s complaint against Boeing Co., this time alleging it deliberately withheld documents from the committee to hide potentially damaging email exchanges between NLRB staffers.”

Beltway Salaries Make Political Capital of U.S. Richer Than Silicon Valley – Bloomberg ”Federal employees whose compensation averages more than $126,000 and the nation’s greatest concentration of lawyers helped Washington edge out San Jose as the wealthiest U.S. metropolitan area, government data show.” (Thanks to Carl for the story.)
But don’t be a REAL job creator. AmericanJobCreators.com Dispatches from the Road: Deardorff Family Farms Story ”I always thought my Dad went to work in a free-market economy. If you make the right decisions, you’re profitable. And if you make the wrong decisions, you’re not,” said Mr. Deardorff. “Now that I sit in his chair, I am amazed at how much I have to weave my way through government, government regulation and how that plays into our decision-making process.” Be sure to read this story….and the importance of fish ladders (not kidding.)
And what planet does he inhabit? Reid Says Private-Sector Employment Is ‘Just Fine’ ”Debating the Senate’s proposed $35 billion bailout for state and local governments, Reid argued, “It’s very clear that private sector jobs have been doing just fine.

Another one bites the dust. The End of Qadhafi ”Former Libyan dictator Muammar Qadhafi is dead from wounds he suffered during his capture near his hometown of Sirte, according to Reuters reports.” Barry/Barack will take credit.

ALOHA, ALL!!! Today’s HDR is a milestone – number 200! It seems like just yesterday that I started penning my thoughts, first in an email blast and now a blog. Hmm…I wonder how many times I’ve been turned into 0bama’s AttackWatch goons? Yet y’all keep on reading!!! Thanks to all of you for your continued support. We have a common goal: to turn this country around so we’re facing in the right direction again.
Not surprising, I’m traveling (again) today so this edition will be a series of “Quick Links” starting off with one of my faves…Dirty Harry Reid.
How Harry Reid Manufactured a Crisis Over Disaster Aid ”Listening to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) or reading The New York Times yesterday gave the impression that disaster relief victims were suffering from a lack of government aid. “Without additional funding,” Reid warned, “thousands of people who have lost literally everything they owned will be forced to go without food and shelter….So the agenda of the tax-and-spend crowd is now clear. President Obama created the problem by overusing FEMA on disasters a record 222 times so far this year where federal aid was not essential. Then liberals manufactured a crisis and exploited disaster relief victims in order to keep expanding the size of government. What’s worse is that the some members of the media played along with it.”
Why the DOJ Gave Up Its Delaying Tactics in the Obamacare Litigation ”It’s certainly possible that the Administration really believes its troubling legal theory that Congress can regulate practically anything, as long as some chaos-theory connection can be found between the desired government regulation and something in commerce—which means everything. But there are several other factors that made further government delay untenable.”
GOP lawmaker demands independent probe into Solyndra – The Hill’s E2-Wire ”A Republican on the House Energy and Commerce Committee is calling on the White House to appoint an independent investigator to examine the administration’s decision to approve a $535 million loan guarantee for a now-bankrupt solar company. Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Texas) said the Obama administration should have quickly appointed a special investigator to look into Solyndra, the failed California-based solar-panel manufacturer, after the company announced late last month it would file for bankruptcy and lay off 1,100 workers.”
‘Obama money’: Thought it couldn’t get any worse than Solyndra? – Common American Journal ”President Obama’s nominee for Commerce secretary served as chairman of the board of a solar energy company that recently received a $1.37 billion federal loan guarantee – the largest the Department of Energy has ever given for a solar power project. Now that company, BrightSource Energy, is to build the world’s largest solar power plant amid concerns such ventures may be too risky an investment for the federal government. In June, BrightSource Chairman John Bryson was nominated by Obama to head the Commerce Department.”
Solyndra’s Creditors Include California Democratic Party | Fox News ”Among the roughly 5,000 creditors named by Solyndra, a bankrupt solar energy company that is under investigation for losing a half billion dollars in federal loans, is the California Democratic Party, which says it doesn’t know why.”
Congress to Investigate Planned Parenthood Abortion Business | LifeNews.com ”A Congressional committee has taken the first steps in investigating the Planned Parenthood abortion business over abuses ranging from financial disparities to its compliance with federal regulations on taxpayer funding to concerns that it is covering up cases of sex trafficking.”
How About A Little Humor? (From The Patriot Post):
Obama at the Bank
Barack Obama walks into the bank to cash a check. “Good morning, Ma’am,” he greets the cashier, “could you please cash this check for me?”
“It would be my pleasure, sir. Could you please show me your ID?”
“Truthfully, I did not bring my ID with me as I didn’t think there was any need to. I am President Barack Obama, the president of the United States of America!”
“Yes, sir, I know who you are, but with all the regulations, monitoring of the banks because of impostors and forgers, etc, I must insist on seeing ID.”
“Just ask anyone here at the bank who I am and they will tell you. Everybody knows who I am.”
“I am sorry Mr. President but these are the bank rules and I must follow them.”
“I am urging you please to cash this check.”
“Ok, this is what we can do Mr. President: One day Tiger Woods came into the bank without ID. To prove he was Tiger Woods he pulled out his putting iron and made a beautiful shot across the bank into a cup. With that shot we knew him to be Tiger Woods and cashed his check. Another time, Andre Agassi came in without ID. He pulled out his tennis racquet and made a fabulous shot, making the tennis ball land in my cup. With that spectacular shot we cashed his check. So, Mr. President, what can you do to prove that it is you, and only you, as the president of the United States?”
Obama stands there thinking and finally says, “Honestly, there is nothing that comes to my mind. I can’t think of a single thing I’m good at.”
“Will that be large or small bills, Mr. President?”
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN 2012!!!
ALOHA, ALL! Michele Bachmann gets migraines. Big Whoop. She has also raised 5 kids and 23 foster kids. But she gets migraines. She has served in Congress, worked as a tax attorney, and owned a small business. But she gets migraines. The lamestream media made such a big deal out of Bachmann’s headaches and the fact that an “unnamed source” claimed she was incapacitated by them. So I’m wondering: have we ever seen Barack Obama’s full medical record? (It’s a rhetorical question – we have not.) We do know that he smokes….holy Marlboro Man! Shouldn’t we be concerned about that??? Give me a break – the sexist media machine is at work once again, showing their disdain toward strong, conservative women. I STILL say the election of Barack 0bama showed that Americans are indeed post-racial (or even too willing to give a person the benefit of the doubt because he’s non-white.) Of course, some might validly argue that 0bama has set race relations back 20 years. But sexism still abounds. So I couldn’t care less about Bachmann’s migraines – I’m more concerned about the guy in the White House who’s causing us all to have a big, fat headache on a daily basis!
0bama thinks he has all the answers. Narcissist-in-Chief Isn’t Happy: Would be Easier If I Could Do This Debt Thing by Executive Order and By-Pass Those SOBs Boehner and Cantor – Common American Journal “I’m sympathetic to your view that this would be easier if I could do this entirely on my own. It would mean all these conversations I’ve had over the last three weeks, I could have been spending time with Malia and Sasha instead,” President Obama said at a town hall. TIME WITH MALIA AND SASHA????? Give me a break – you’d be out on the golf course!
Speaking of headaches. I actually saw this on Fox News the other day – it’s great!
Here’s a solution: Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the best quotes I’ve heard in all this drama about the debt ceiling: “I could end the deficit in 5 minutes,” he told CNBC. “You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election.” (Hat-tip to Marvin for that one!)
Is the Tea Party movement relevant? Ask George Will: Time Is on the Side of Tea Party Reforms – Common American Journal ”Thanks largely to the tea party, today, more than at any time since Reagan’s arrival 30 years ago, Washington debate is conducted in conservatism’s vocabulary of government retrenchment. The debt-ceiling vote, an action-forcing mechanism of limited utility, has at least demonstrated that Obama is, strictly speaking, unbelievable.”
ICYMI – Here’s what Dirty Harry Reid had to say about Cut Cap and Balance on Friday: “If they [Senate Republicans] want to debate it tomorrow for a period of time, they can do that, but I’m going to — I think this piece of legislation is about as weak and senseless as anything that has ever come on this Senate floor … The American people should understand that this is a bad piece of legislation. Perhaps some of the worst legislation in the history of this country.” Meanwhile, here’s what he said in 2006 – HE THOUGHT IT WAS OUTRAGEOUS THAT WE MIGHT INCREASE THE DEBT LIMIT TO $9 TRILLION: HEY HARRY – YOUR DUPLICITY IS SHOWING!!!!!!!
And what is the other hand doing? End of the Line | FreedomWorks ”Behind the scenes, while Washington and the United States focus on the debt crisis, President Obama’s EPA has been quietly implementing one of the most radical and costly policies of his administration. Ever since the failure of cap-and-trade, the administration has turned to the EPA to carry out its radical environmental agenda.”
Meanwhile, back in the Heartland. Wisconsin Accounts For More Than Half of New Jobs in June and Kasich Touts Ohio’s Improvement in CNBC Business Survey Well, well, well……how do you like them apples, 0bama and union thugs?????
Survey Says….Trust on Issues – Rasmussen Reports™ ”The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows that 45% trust Republicans more when it comes to handling economic issues, while 35% put more trust in Democrats.”
The growing concern over Kagan. Letter_to_Judiciary_Committee_re_Kagan_Recusal.pdf “Contradictory to her 2010 confirmation testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, recently released Department of Justice (DOJ) documents indicate that Justice Kagan actively participated with her Obama Administration colleagues in formulating a defense of PPACA.” PPACA = 0bamacare. Kagan = 0bamacare lackey.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people affected by the attacks in Norway.
Final Thought: ”Government’s first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.” Ronald Reagan

One of the best reads yet: A Scorecard Of Negatives, A Menace To Our Future – Investors.com Here’s a teaser:
“President Nixon was driven from office for lying about a two-bit burglary and other dirty tricks on Democrats. President Clinton was impeached by the House and almost convicted by the Senate for lying about Monica Lewinsky. President Carter was sent packing after only one term for being weak-kneed abroad and economically destructive at home. Obama traduces the truth daily and has already done more damage to the U.S. than Nixon, Carter and Clinton combined — and the worst may be yet to come. The man is a public menace who should be kept under political quarantine.”

Ah yes…The gift that keeps on giving: Rev. Jeremiah Wright–who had nothing to do with shaping Obama’s views for more than 20 years: Capitalism is a Demon, Tea Party is racist (And other stuff you should hear) – Common American Journal But he’s not one bit racist.
Wake up, Conservatives! Why Do Some Conservatives Still Assume Obama and the Left Are Acting in Good Faith? | NewsReal Blog I heard Medved speak recently and I must say that while he is an intelligent, thoughtful individual, I was taken aback at his disdain for people who question 0bama’s eligibility (not just from a “birther” standpoint but even to question it at all.) He thinks that 0bama needs to be beat on the issues and not personal matters (such as eligibility.) I say, why not both? (See previous story about Jeremiah Wright.)
YES!!! Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) and Rep. Steve King (R-IA) separately introduced the English Language Unity Act in the Senate and House.
