BIG news today! Check out the story on John Brennan as the mastermind of the journalist Witch Hunt!
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON!!!
ALOHA, ALL!! Not only is it not over, as I wrote in my previous post, it’s getting worse. As more comes out concerning the Boston Islamic terrorist attacks, we’re hearing disturbing reports of other planned attacks – the Canadian train, the Madrid Marathon and more. This is the new “normal” folks. And just like peeling an onion, it stinks. Yet denial in the Obama administration that this truly is Islamic terrorism is pervasive. The most senior Arab-American woman appointee in the Obama administration refuses to link Muslims to terror: Terrorism Highlights Threat from Al Jazeera in America And while Juliette Kayyam is no longer Assistant Secretary for Intergovernmental Affairs at the Department of Homeland Security, she is now CNN’s “terror analyst.” Obama refuses to say WAR ON TERROR and instead says OVERSEAS CONTINGENCY OPERATION. He recognizes and gives aid to the Muslim Brotherhood. He bows to Arab leaders. And we have so-called “terror analysts” who refuse to recognize the genesis of the terror threat. Sorry folks, but we’re screwed. Great article (Shaka to Biz): The Price of Obama’s Islamophilia “Short of a bombing or shooting, it is hard for Islamic warriors to get the attention of an administration that insists it is not at “war with Islam,” and even then no lessons are learned. The horror just becomes an occasion for more “diversity” and “understanding.”
Hillary lied, people died: Hillary’s Benghazi Story Unraveling ”Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., was “surprised” by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s sworn testimony in a Senate hearing in which she claimed that she did not know whether the U.S. mission in Libya was procuring or transferring weapons to Turkey and other Arab countries…If Clinton knew about the arms transfers, she may have committed perjury during her Benghazi testimony.”
Huh?? Michelle Obama Visited Saudi National in Hospital ”The well-known Saudi Arabian news site Okaz.com released a report claiming first lady Michelle Obama visited two young Saudi Arabian nationals — including one once considered a person of interest and who sources tell TheBlaze was being considered for deportation — in the hospital Thursday following the Boston attacks and reassured them of their health status.” And who exactly is this Saudi National? Beck Breaks Exclusive Information on Saudi National Once Thought to be ‘Person of Interest’ in Boston Bombings
Duh. President Obama to Deliver Keynote Address at Planned Parenthood Annual Gala ”The event will honor prominent sex therapist Dr. Ruth K. Westheimer, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (D), and actress Lena Dunham, creator of the HBO series “Girls.” Dunham raised the ire of conservative groups ahead of the election by endorsing Obama in a video that compared voting to “your first time” having sex.”
So what else is new? Obama Counts on Media to Shift Blame for Flight Delays “We know that the FAA has the flexibility to reduce costs elsewhere, such as contracts, travel, supplies, and consultants, or to apply furloughs in a manner that better protects the most critical air traffic control facilities,” asserted Republican Rep. Bill Shuster (R-PA). “Yet rather than take this approach, the Administration has made choices that appear designed to have the greatest possible impact on the traveling public.”
Background checks? The Boston bombers would still have had guns. Suspects Not Licensed to Own Guns And this: ”I never arrested a criminal in 15+ years who had a gun legally.” Dan Bongino, former Secret Service agent.

ALOHA, ALL!! Interesting. Obama came out swinging (like a doomed, desperate, has-been clinging to a life-line.) Against debate rules, he even had his own cheering section, thanks to Michelle and Candy. Obama, who promised a more “feisty” performance, seemed over-the-top most of the time. It didn’t go well. I could re-invent the wheel and write my own text, but my blogging buddy NEO said it all perfectly:
“OK, we had the second debate last night. They mostly covered domestic stuff, it’s important and you can find the breakdown all over the place this morning, if you’re interested. Here’s the thing, for the most part, it doesn’t matter. Obama‘s been President for nearly four years, we know what to expect. Romney/Ryan have good sensible plans which are unlikely to survive intact contact with Congress. Mostly what we are electing here is the man we think will be the better leader. It more about philosophy than anything else. Both men are known quantities.” Read more HERE
LOVE this reaction from Frank Luntz’s focus group in Las Vegas!!!
More debate re-cap:
Candy Crowley’s Moderator Role Under Scrutiny Before Tuesday Town Hall ”According to the debate-format language in the agreement, after each audience question and two-minute responses from the candidates, Obama and Romney are expected to have an additional discussion facilitated by Crowley. Yet her participation is meant to be limited…Crowley seems unfazed by the behind-the-scenes maneuvering. Even after concerns were raised in the wake of the Malveaux interview, Crowley made additional comments that make clear she does not feel bound by any agreement between the commission and the Obama and Romney camps.”
Candy’s Not Dandy ”…She interrupted Obama nine times, but she squelched Mitt Romney fully 28 times…But the most blatant evidence of bias was her instant “fact checking” of Romney’s quite correct insistence that Obama took weeks to call the Benghazi debacle a terrorist attack. She jumped to Obama’s defense, saying “he did call it an act of terror. But she was flat-out wrong.”
Michelle Obama Leads Applause For Candy Crowley ”…it has emerged that the applause was not just started by impartial observers, as First Lady Michelle Obama was one of those who led the ovation for Crowley.” Of course! The rules for ordinary people don’t apply to Queen Michelle. Yep – there’s a picture to prove it:
Obama Begs Crowley For A Bailout On Pension Question ”President Obama was clearly not happy with being questioned about his pension account. But instead of coming up with an answer, the President of the United States actually begged Candy Crowley to come to his rescue. It was quite a sad spectacle but Crowley did not bail him out. His answer was awkward and evasive. Glenn reacts in the clip above.”
Romney’s Secret Blowout ”It was a disastrous debate for President Obama. He may have achieved firing up the base, but the base had already been fired up by Vice President Joe Biden’s bizarre performance in the vice presidential debate. He may have achieved not looking comatose, but instead he looked angry and puerile.”
Dick Morris’ take:
More good news from the mother of all swing states (Shaka to Scott). Tracking Ohio’s Absentee Ballot Requests “…what we know of early/absentee ballot requests in Ohio does not support the current narrative that Ohioan Democratic voters are as enthusiastic about voting in 2012 as they were in 2008. This in turn does not support the current narrative that the Democrats will do better in Ohio in 2012 than they did in 2008.”
Final Thought: “I am a hard-news journalist. That is what I do.” And: “Usually you kind of give the President a pass on leaking confidential stuff.” Candy Crowley
Rather contradictory statements, aren’t they Candy??????

ALOHA, ALL!! If you got an ‘incomplete’ grade in a class, would you pass? If you got an ‘incomplete’ score on any type of work assignment, would you move up to the next level? Yet Barack Obama claims his grade on the economy is ‘incomplete’ and he wants more time, he wants to pass…he wants to move on to the next level with another 4 years in office. It’s time to get rid of this ‘incomplete’ president and elect one who will focus on fixing our problems. Ryan: ’Four Years Into A Presidency And It’s Incomplete?’
The lies just keep on coming. Here’s a little video that the lamestream media somehow couldn’t find. But VOILA! It vindicates Paul Ryan, accused of lying about that closed GM plant in Janesville, WI. OOPS – caught with your pants down again, Dems.
No need to watch Obama’s speech Thursday night – here’s what he’ll say:
He may repeat some of these: Ten Worst Lies Of Barack Obama ”Attempting to select THE ten worst lies told by a pathological liar like Barack Obama is a difficult task. There are so many lies that it is hard to know where to start – a good case can be made for so many of his lies as top ten material.”
And this is Joe Biden(opoulos’) speech – we got an exclusive! Joe Biden’s Leaked Convention Speech? Sneak peek: ”Friends, Romans, countrymen — lend me your ears. I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him. [Suddenly pounding his shoe on the dais.] We will bury you!” LOL!!
Looks like plagiarism runs in the DNC family. San Antonio Mayor ‘Borrows’ Marco Rubio RNC Speech “My mother fought hard for civil rights so instead of a mop, I could hold this microphone,” said San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro in his DNC Convention speech.” Hmmmm……
Change they can believe in….because it won’t look like Obama is speaking in an empty stadium. Obama’s Convention Speech Moved From 73,000 Seat Outdoor Stadium To 20,000 Seat Indoor Arena Of course, they claim it’s the weather. Too hot for Joe Biden? ”Tomorrow night’s forecast for Charlotte calls for isolated thunderstorms and a 30 percent chance of rain. But it’s more likely that a separate but more important forecast found there to be a 100 percent chance of thousands of empty seats in the outdoor stadium.”
Another milestone for Obama. Debt Clock Hits $16 Trillion As DNC Celebrates Hope and Chair ”The theme of the convention is “building the economy from the middle out.” But Obama will be relying heavily on the Clinton legacy, not his own, to convince voters he’s the best path to the future. Let’s build a bridge to the 21st Century again! It’s shovel-ready!” The debt is now $136,260 per household - up 50%under Obama.
Check out the ‘hood just four miles from the DNC freakfest. Forward? Charlotte Community In Despair ”Entire strip malls are abandoned, auto dealers closed, gas stations shut down, restaurants foreclosed and empty. It is so bad, billboards are blank without advertising.”
Here’s what Charles Krauthammer had to say about Michelle Obama’s speech – perfect!
God & Jerusalem – who needs ‘em? (Shaka to Scott for the link) Democratic Platform: ’God,’ Jerusalem Language Dropped ”Since the platform was released, the lack of the word “God” has become a rallying cry among some conservatives, especially those who believe that the Obama administration is unfriendly to religion. The Republican platform, released last week, made at least a dozen references to God and included a section on religious liberty.”
Food For Thought: Does anyone else see the hypocrisy in putting a man who killed a woman (Ted Kennedy) and another man who was accused of rape and assault (Bill Clinton) front and center at a convention that supposedly celebrates women? Just sayin’….
Final Thought: ”She told the story of Gandhi.” Charles Krauthammer, describing Michelle Obama’s speech about her husband at the DNC

ALOHA, ALL!! It’s interesting how we never hear about any division within the leaders of the Democrat party. It seems they are all in lock-step with The Great Obama, supporting him in every decision and pledging undying fealty to their god/king. But not so fast…..things may not be so rosy in ObamaLand. At least one very prominent Democrat – from THE family of Democrats – might not be very happy with Obama. It didn’t hit me until I read this blog post from The Stuttering Messiah that Caroline Kennedy has been oddly silent in her support of Obama this time around. In 2008, she chose Barry over Hillary, even though the Kennedys and Clintons had a long history of alliances. But Barry/Barack Soetoro/Obama was the next coming of her father, John F Kennedy, so she just HAD to drink the KoolAde and fall in line with other adoring minions. Looks like the bloom has gone off the rose. Welcome to the real world, Caroline.
Ah yes….reality has struck a lot of the Obamabots who voted for him in 2008.
Cancer-gate continues, and Obama’s deputy campaign manager, Stephanie Cutter is proven to be a liar. Maybe she’s a felon, too? ”Doesn’t Know The Facts” ”CUTTER: “You do know that we don’t have anything to do with Priorities USA. By law, we’re not allowed to coordinate with them, and by law, we don’t have anything to do with their ads….But Cutter hosted an Obama campaign conference call in May in which Soptic told reporters the very story featured in the Priorities spot.” OOPS!!!!
Which leads us to: ALERT THE MEDIA! ROMNEY KILLED JONBENET!!!! “Personally, if I killed JonBenét Ramsey, I would have come clean and told the American people that on day one,” Obama’s communication director David Axelrod said on Sunday’s installment of Meet The Press.” LOL!! (Yes, it’s a parody, but does it seem so far-fetched that Sleazy Preezy would result to such tactics?)
Say what???? First Lady: ’Bring That Little Lazy Friend’ To Campaign For Obama ”Speaking at the University of Sciences in Philadelphia on Thursday, First Lady Michelle Obama encouraged attendees to recruit their “little lazy friend” to campaign for President Barack Obama’s reelection.” Nice!
We’re doing just fine! Where Obama Ranks For Jobs With Other Presidents ”It’s pimple-butt bad. Obama’s job numbers, as de Rugy points out, are far worse than Kennedy (3.6 million), Ford (2.1 million) and Carter (10.3 million) who, as Presidents, served for similar or shorter terms than our venerable supreme ruler. In fact, he ranks dead last in jobs, the bottom of the barrel, for all presidents since 1945.”
Final Thought: “He’s a liar and worse. I can’t stand to hear his voice.” Caroline Kennedy on Barack Obama, from Ed Klein’s book, “Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House”

ALOHA, ALL!! The Olympics are in full swing. A time when athletes from around the world compete in numerous sports against the best competitors in existence. It’s a time to cheer for your home country and to put politics aside. What’s that you say? Politics? It turns out this year the powers-that-be who are in charge of the London games decided to take advantage of the huge audience watching the opening ceremonies. And they put in a plug for their wonderful, marvelous National Health Service. Frankly, it was bizarre: Americans Left Baffled By Tribute To NHS But thinking about it now, it was interesting how the kids all snug in their tidy little hospital beds were plagued with dreams of demons. And it took a private enterprising figure (Mary Poppins) to rescue them. Those demons are headed to our shores: ObamaCare’s 7 Tax Hikes On Under $250,000-A-Year Earners and 83% Of Doctors Have Considered Quitting Over Obamacare But I don’t think Mary Poppins can help us. We need Mitt Romney and we need GOP control of both Houses of Congress!
And this ;-) (Shaka to Cindy): The International Olympic Committee announced today that it has taken back the gold medal previously awarded to American skier Lindsey Vonn and given it to U.S. President Barack Obama. Olympic officials said Obama deserved the medal more than Vonn because no one has ever gone downhill faster than he has.
Looks like Queen Michelle wasn’t going to be outdone by real royals. Michelle Obama Sports $6800 Jacket To London Soiree “The jacket cost more than the average American family makes in a month ($4,284). And, she does this as Americans continue to suffer through a deep recession and record unemployment. Michelle feels your pain.”
Romney broo-ha-ha overblown. It’s No ‘Gaffe’ – Romney Knows How To Fix A Ruined Olympics “He deferred his own salary, froze everyone else’s and cut free lunches for board members, making them buy their own pizza. And he forced International Olympic Committee members, who’d been lavished with bribes earlier, to stay in modest hotels.” Ah….no wonder they went after him!
And maybe Romney was right. Empty Seats Have Organizers Scrambling, Giving Away Tickets ”Following the embarrassing images of unfilled seats, a resale system was introduced over the weekend whereby people leaving an event early can return tickets that can later be sold to people already in the Olympic Park. On Saturday, nearly 300 tickets for handball were recycled this way.” Hmmm….I don’t remember having this problem at the Salt Lake City games – that Romney ran – right after 9/11. Just sayin’.
Meanwhile, in Israel…..
In Other News:
Alert the media! Pelosi: Obama Has Been To Israel ‘Over and Over Again’ ”Contrary to Pelosi’s apparent claim, President Obama hasn’t been to Israel over and over again. He’s never been as president, which is certainly what Pelosi implied.” This woman is a laughing stock!
Knock me over with a feather. Colorado Shooter ID’d As Part Of Occupy New York ”A photo from October 2011 has now surfaced of an Occupy New York protester being carried away by police that appears to be James Holmes. A private investigator from Kellerman Investigations has named the protester in this photo as being Holmes, and a website called Godlike Productions has a post where facial recognition software was used, comparing the photo from 2011 with Holmes’ “Joker” photo posted days before the massacre on his “Adult Friend” profile.”
GOOD news! Obama Blamed For Failure Of International Arms Trade Treaty ”The United Nations indefinitely suspended action on an international arms trade treaty Friday after the United States and several other countries asked for more time.” Good news on two count: 1) the treaty is suspended (for now) and 2) Barry gets blamed.
ICYMI (and I know you did since it was never reported until now). Obama Cancelled bin Laden Kill Raid 3 Times At Jarrett’s Urging ”In ”Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him,“ Richard Miniter writes that Obama canceled the “kill” mission in January 2011, again in February, and a third time in March. Obama’s close adviser Valerie Jarrett persuaded him to hold off each time, according to the book.”
Final Thought: ”I was going to Utah to run the Olympics. Ann and I felt it was the right thing to do. We felt it brought greater meaning to what we had already done. I wanted to serve the community, not run for office.” Source: Turnaround, by Mitt Romney, p. 19-20 Aug 25, 2004

ALOHA, ALL!! Wow. What could possibly make Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, David Axelrod, Jim Messina, Joe Biden and numerous other “defenders of women” come out on the same day and throw a woman under the bus? That woman letting the cat out of the bag. Here’s the thing: the left has always had a disdain for stay-at-home moms. Remember Hillary Clinton’s famous remark about how she’s not staying home baking cookies? After all, that would mean she’s doing menial things like preparing meals for a family and tending to basic household needs. People like Hillary have nannies for those unimportant tasks!!!! So now another Hilary (hmmm…odd coincidence), Hilary Rosen (with one l – apparently she wasn’t named after a famous mountain climber like Clinton was) has a moment of complete candor and the Democrat spin machine goes into full tizzy mode. LOVE. IT!
Too little too late. Democratic strategist Rosen apologizes for attack on Ann Romney | Fox News “Guess what, (Romney’s) wife has actually never worked a day in her life,” said Rosen, who has twins with ex-partner Elizabeth Birch.” (Sidenote: Birch is a former Chair of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. She runs Rosie O’Donnell’s production company. Oh…I see she also graduated from the University of Hawaii.)
No worries – Rosen has NOTHING to do with Obama’s campaign. Democrats declare war on women? Update: Frequent White House visitor? « Hot Air ”White House visitor logs indicate that “Hilary Rosen” visited the White House thirty-five times. Gen. David Petraeus, head of our efforts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the current CIA director, nine times.”
Obama Press Secretary Jay Carney tried to explain all those visits – LOL!
And who does Rosen currently work for? Hilary Rosen | SKDKnickerbocker Note the names on the masthead. Does “Anita Dunn” sound familiar? But no worries – I repeat….Rosen has NOTHING to do with Obama’s campaign. But wait….didn’t The One himself raise the “not working” theme just days before? Video: Obama Lays Groundwork for Rosen’s Attack on Ann Romney Coincidence that both he and Rosen are beating the same drum? RIIIIIGHT!
Ann Romney ROCKS!! Ann Romney | Hilary Rosen | Fires back | The Daily Caller “Look, I know what it’s like to struggle,” she said. “And if maybe I haven’t struggled as much financially as some people have, I can tell you and promise you that I’ve had struggles in my life. And I would love to have people understand that Mitt and I have compassion for people that are struggling, and that’s why we’re running.”
Ha Ha Ha!! Oh my: Obama White House paying women employees less than men? « Hot Air ”According to the 2011 annual report on White House staff, female employees earned a median annual salary of $60,000, which was about 18 percent less than the median salary for male employees ($71,000).”
There IS a war on women, and here are the details. The Democrats’ War on Women | FrontPage Magazine ”And make no mistake: when 41 percent of women are having children out of wedlock, Democrats are not just waging a war against women. It’s a war against children as well.” Excellent article!!

Check out his blog. Striking.

So why isn’t it? ”The letter outlined grave concerns over a recent disturbing pattern by the Department of Defense (DOD) to procure military weaponry and aircraft from corrupt foreign countries hostile to U.S. national security interests, and from foreign companies supplying these corrupt nations (including Syria) with weapons used to commit mass atrocities against their own people.”

The Chamber of Commerce says that nearly 30% of the registered voters in the city don’t actually live there.”
Hoopster In Chief Has Own Image on Ball* – ABC News Seriously??? ”Using a special basketball festooned with his own image, President Obama shot some hoop today with former NBA players, Harlem Globetrotters and kids attending the White House Easter Egg Hunt….He then moved on to tennis with Chris Evert. The tennis balls did not have his image on them.” Well thank heaven for little favors.
Final Thought: ”Thanks for making me a fighter.” Christina Aguilera. This is dedicated to Hilary Rosen and her ilk, most notably Barack Obama. Oh…and the guy who called me a racist. You thought I would forget, but I’ll definitely remember – in November.
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER!!
ALOHA, ALL!! This election should be a piece of chocolate cake with strawberries on top. But it won’t be. The media are in the tank for Obama, so scratch any semblance of balanced journalism from them. Big labor is in the tank for Obama, so they will use whatever thug tactics they can to get him re-elected. Big name celebrities are in the tank for Obama, so they will use their visibility to bring in big bucks. It seems Barry has the female vote in key swing states, because they’ve bought into the whole war on women crap (see this HDR: Dumbing Down the Women’s Vote.) But here’s the big reason Obama could win: voter fraud. James O’Keefe (Remember him? He did the videos exposing ACORN) has an explosive video showing how easy it is to get a ballot – someone else’s ballot – by simply walking in to a polling place. But the biggest shocker of all….he even pretend to be the Attorney General of the United States, Eric Holder, and pulled off this scam. (Um…doesn’t say much for the poll workers knowledge of government officials, does it? But that’s another problem.) Check this out:
That’s right, folks…he walked right into Eric Holder’s voting precinct, claimed to be Holder and was welcomed with open arms. We don’t need no stinkin’ ID!
And look who’s counting the votes: Bias in new vote-counting system? National security concerns also raised « Klein Online ”The Drudge Report yesterday ran a feature entitled, “Foreign company buys U.S. election results reporting firm.” The article documented that SCYTL, based in Barcelona, acquired 100% of SOE Software, the leading software provider of election management solutions in the United States.”
Obama’s team has already been working on his re-election for a year . The Guardian on Facebook ”For the past nine months a crack team of some of America’s top data wonks has occupied an entire floor of the Prudential building in Chicago devising a digital campaign from the bottom up. The team draws much of its style and inspiration from the corporate sector, with its driving ambition to create a vote-garnering machine that is smooth, unobtrusive and ruthlessly efficient.” (Sidenote: It’s no secret that the Facebook founder is in the tank for Obama, too.)
There was fraud in 2008, they’ll do it again (Shaka to Terri for the link.) Wikileaks reveals Democrat 2008 election crimes ”The latest activity by Wikileaks dumped some 5 million emails and documents hacked from the database of Stratfor Intelligence.

Egyptian Cleric: It’s an ‘Obligation to Cheat at Elections’ | FrontPage Magazine ”Over and over, evidence emerges from Islamic nations that democracy and voting are instrumental means to an intrinsic end: the establishment of a decidedly undemocratic but draconian form of law—Islamic law, or Sharia.” In the case of the United States, it’s ObamaLaw.
They stuffed ballot boxes….paid off Jesse Jackson….took Russian money. This year will make all these actions seem like kid’s stuff! Putin agrees.

ALOHA, ALL!! I always got along better with men than women. And a new poll released by USA Today gives me one more explanation why. It appears that women have given Obama a lead over Romney in several of the key swing states. What the heck is wrong with you?????? Are you so gullible that this fake “War on Women” drummed up by the Democrats has swayed you? Do you not see how the left uses you as pawns? Obama has given us record debt and deficits. The “Constitutional Scholar” has rammed an unconstitutional law down our throats. Unemployment stays above 8%. Our stature around the world has been demeaned. Billions of dollars have been wasted on failed stimulus programs and ridiculous energy schemes. Our own natural resources that could make us energy independent lie fallow. The Keystone pipeline – a project that could provide both energy and jobs – is nixed. And women prefer Obama? Frankly, I’m disgusted. American women need to wake up to the true issues facing our country. And free birth control for law students isn’t one of them. Or maybe this explains it better: if we become a permanent debtor nation, that glass ceiling will turn into concrete one. For good. Got your attention now?

ALOHA, ALL!!! So with all the news this week, here’s a blockbuster story you never heard: Malia Obama took a Spring Break vacation to Mexico. I know….why such a big deal? Well, it MUST be a big deal because all the news outlets have either hidden or scrapped the story! Why would they do that, you say? Think about it: the country is suffering through a bad economy. Gas prices are ridiculously high. Unemployment and under-employment remain troubling. The deficit is at all-time high. Yet Barry is out promoting himself as one of the people …the best hope to get us out of our slump. Can you imagine if after reporting one of his fundraiser, er, energy speeches the next news story showed Malia tanning on a Mexican beach? (Oh, by the way, you’re paying for Malia to frolic in the sun with her friends and 25 Secret Service agents.) What’s troubling is that this story was initially reported and then scrubbed from numerous sites (so much for the most transparent administration in history.) OK…kids are off-limits? Then why does Barry trot them out when it’s to his political advantage (like the smiling family on the cover of a magazine) but squashes a story that might make he and his family look out-of-touch? Oh yeah….Mexico????? Would you let your teenaged daughter go there for Spring break? I guess if a couple dozen armed agents went along for the ride….

Barry’s younger years. A story surfaced last week about how a young Barack Obama was supported by Bill Ayers parents to attend Harvard. Sound outrageous? NOTHING sounds outrageous to me anymore! Postman: Ayers family put ‘foreigner’ Obama through school ”A retired U.S. Postal Service carrier who delivered mail to Tom and Mary Ayers in a Chicago suburb in the late 1980s and early 1990s and claims to have met Obama in front of the Ayers home emphatically says yes to all three questions.”
He was OWS before it was cool! Note the language Obama uses in this 1995 interview. The Vetting: Obama 1995: ‘Scapegoat’ the ‘Top 5%’ ”In an environment of scarcity, where the cost of living is rising, folks begin to get angry and bitter and look for scapegoats. Historically, instead of looking at the top 5% of this country that controls all the wealth, we turn towards each other, and the Republicans have added to the fire.”
Ya Gotta Have Friends! Biden, Wasserman Schultz, Holder and Axelrod are way up there with Barry and it’s easy to see why:
White House Backs Biden’s Claim That Killing Bin Laden Was Boldest Mission in ‘500 Years’ | CNSNews.com ”The White House asserted that Vice President Joe Biden did not misspeak when he said, “you can go back 500 years. You cannot find a more audacious plan,” referring to President Barack Obama’s decision to kill Osama bin Laden.”
DNC Debbie’s Islamist Lie | FrontPage Magazine ”According to announcements which were placed on the website of EMERGE USA last month, Debbie Wasserman Schultz had been scheduled to give the Keynote Address at the group’s annual fundraising banquet, which was to be held in Downtown Fort Lauderdale, at the Marriott Fort Lauderdale North, on April 21st.”
Holder Concealed Evidence Of Gunrunner’s Release | Dickmorris.com ”The fast and furious story gained momentum in Washington after it has emerged that Attorney General Eric Holder failed to turn over to Congressional investigators evidence that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco,and Firearms has released Manuel Acosta – a kingpin in the illegal weapons trade of the drug cartels – from custody in return for a vague promise of” cooperation” which he failed to keep.”
Last but not least – Axelrod. He’s about as slimy as they come. I actually watched this without the sound (I saw it live when Brett Baier interviewed him.) Note the body language…what a liar! ”The theater of politics” indeed!
Final Thought: ”So I just …Sit right here and have another beer in Mexico; Do my best to waste another day; Sit right here and have another beer in Mexico; Let the warm air melt these blues away.” Kenny Chesney
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER!!
