ALOHA, ALL!! Did you hear that? It’s the awful sucking sound of Obama’s campaign sinking like the Titanic. He needed to be Presidential in the final debate and was anything but. He was a petty, petulant, pissed prevaricator. Here’s a great overview of some of the lies: Fact Checking Obama – Ten Lies And Counting As always, The Heritage Foundation gave an excellent analysis: Final Presidential Debate 2012: Experts’ Analyses And Reactions. But I gotta say, I like my friend NEO’s description the best: ”Obama looked like a first time candidate for city-council, Romney looked and sounded like the President of the United States of America, in the line of Washington, Lincoln, Roosevelt, Kennedy, and Reagan.” Yep. Send in the clowns.
Speaking of clowns…The Ties That Biden ”How was it that HillStone, a newcomer in the business of home building, landed a massive and potentially lucrative contract to build 100,000 homes in war-torn Iraq? Richter didn’t mince words. It really helps, he said, to have “the brother of the vice president as a partner,” according to a person who was present. The “brother” Richter was referring to during the meeting is James Biden, the younger brother of Vice President Joe Biden.” And one Ohio voter didn’t mince words with Jovial Joe: Voter Tells Bide He’s A ‘Good Guy’ But Bad VP Frankly, I don’t even think he’s a good guy.
Joe’s fans probably think “JOBS” is a three letter word. Check this out: Spelling Is Hard
And isn’t this special! Dump: Administration Delivers Subpoenaed Benghazi Docs Hours Before Debate ”According to Rep. Rogers, files and documents that his committee had been waiting for were finally delivered yesterday at 5:00 PM, just hours before the final Presidential Debate that focused on foreign policy. “It certainly appears to me at at first blush that there was a a political interpretation and that’s always a dangerous thing. I think they put November 6th ahead of our national security.”
BOMBSHELL – Why the dump. New Emails Reveal That The White House Knew Far More About Benghazi Than They Admit ”These emails now cast more doubt on the Administration then ever before. They reveal that the White House knew that a terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attack even though they spent more than two weeks claiming that the attack was the result of a spontaneous protest over a YouTube video that was placed online back in July. This now makes it hard for anyone not to be suspicious of what else the White House and the President knew.”
Go ahead – make his day.
Bayonets can’t save Obama. Sorry Mr President, But The Troops DO Need Horses And Bayonets! “For most soldiers, a bayonet or other type of blade is the second most important weapon, behind only the rifle. As well as being a combat weapon, bayonets are used as multipurpose knives while troops are being deployed overseas. Horses are less important to modern methods of fighting, but they have not yet been entirely phased out. In 2001, the first U.S. troops to enter Afghanistan did so by riding into the country alongside America’s allies in the Northern Alliance.” And we also need ships: Republicans Try To Sink The President On His Comment Over Battleship ”Republicans believe the comments could become a political liability for the president, particularly in the critical battleground states of Florida and Virginia, which are home to major shipyards…GOP vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.) also shot back against the president’s verbal jab during a Tuesday interview on CBS’s “This Morning.” “The ocean hasn’t shrunk,” Ryan said. “You still have to have enough ships to have the footprint that you need … to keep our strength abroad where it needs to be.”
Gee – why don’t we hear about the crowds at the candidates’ rallies this time? It couldn’t possibly be because Obama is drawing fewer than Romney, could it? (Yes, I’m being snarky) Romney Packs Red Rocks “Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan held a rally at a packed Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater in Morrison, Colo., tonight. It was a sight to behold.”
Remember where you heard the “L” word first (Shaka to Cindy for the link). Romney Landslide Possibilities Emerge “When Americans get tired of lies, chaos creation, condescending tones and crisis makeup-with corresponding management, voter step in to put an end to the mess! That is what is happening ….The polls are quite likely far beyond the reported 5 points and out of reach for denial by Obama, and he and supporters grasp at straws in desperation.” BUT WE CAN’T GET COMPLACENT! BE SURE TO VOTE!! AND KEEP UP THE PRESSURE ON FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
These people – who are the future of America – are counting on us.

ALOHA, ALL!! Wow. Seriously, Joe Biden? What a ridiculous display of arrogance and idiocy. As someone who speaks in front of groups on a regular basis, I know the visual overrules the verbal every time. And friend (a nod to your reference of Ryan several times), your visual was crappy. It’s said that television adds 10 pounds to someone’s weight. In this case, TV added at least that much to Biden’s over-inflated ego and fat head. Outrageous. (Shaka to Randy for the photo caption)
The best analysis I’ve seen is from Charles Krauthammer (no surprise – see the video in the link): Biden’s Disrespectful Condescending Behavior Undid Possible Debate Win “If you read the transcript, I think it’s dead even,” Krauthammer said. ”If you heard it on radio, Biden won. If you watched on television, he lost.” Estimates are that 50 million watched it on TV. He lost.
How the Brits reported it – much more fairly than our press. Joe Biden Attacks Paul Ryan During Debate ”With a flash of his teeth – and a lot of finger-jabbing – the Vice President won plaudits from his fans during the debate last night, but his performance ran a very high risk of being seen as bullying and condescending, alienating swing and female voters. Veteran columnist Peggy Noonan described Biden as ‘weirdly aggressive’ and said his bullishness ‘looked mean and second-rate’ as Republicans claimed that Biden interrupted Ryan 82 times during the 90-minute debate.” BTW, whoever made Joe’s “flashy” teeth should have his or her dental license revoked. Horrible!
The GOP quickly had a web ad up about an hour after the debate:
And how about those “facts” Biden quoted? Top Ten Worst Lies By Joe Biden In Debate “This is a bunch of stuff.” You can say that again! Here’s the biggest lie that will surely come back to haunt him and Barry: ”Well, we weren’t told they wanted more security again.” Biden lied through his teeth about the fact that the administration–specifically, the State Department–had been told again and again that security on the ground in Libya, and in Benghazi in particular, was inadequate. The day before, in Congressional hearings on the Libya attacks, former regional security director Eric Nordstrom described his frustration with having those requests turned down by the government bureaucracy: “For me the Taliban is on the inside of the building.”

ALOHA, ALL!! I think we’ve heard enough about Big Bird. The fact that Team Obama thinks cutting funding for PBS is a big issue shows their desperation. Time to move on, Organizing for America…you picked another loser. Tonight, we are in for a treat….a real smack down between the VP candidates. One is full of hot air and a monumental gaffe machine. The other, even though he’s much younger, is an adult with solutions to our problems. Get the popcorn out – it’s gonna be a good one!!

Make Our Day, Paul Ryan….Please Go There! Missing In Action – Stimulus ‘Sheriff’ Joe Biden ”Remember when President Obama bragged about Joe Biden’s fiscal discipline cred in 2009? “To you, he’s Mr. Vice President, but around the White House, we call him the Sheriff,” Obama warned government employees. “Because if you’re misusing taxpayer money, you’ll have to answer to him.”
Shock!!! Not. Transparency Fail: Obama A Guest At VP Moderator’s Wedding ”…ABC News’ senior foreign correspondent, Martha Raddatz, is not only moderating tomorrow night’s debate between Paul Ryan and Joe Biden, but no less than Barack Obama was a guest at her 1991 wedding.”
Shock!! Not. Part II. Obama’s Ring: ’There Is No God But Allah’“…according to Arabic-language and Islamic experts, the ring Obama has been wearing for more than 30 years is adorned with the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith, the Shahada: “There is no God except Allah.”
No Media Bias. None at All. AP Releases Unflattering Pic Of Mitt Note my comment: ”Or…they could have cropped out the girl. If she was my daughter I’d sue the AP.”
Meanwhile, How They Report on Romney in the UK. Like Father, Like Son A Young Mitt Romney Takes Advice From Dad in Intimate Unpublished Photos ”The images show a statesman-like figure, clearly loved and respected by his close-knit family. The dynamic patriarch at the center of the 50-year-old pictures is George Romney, but they provide an interesting parallel with the life of Mitt Romney today.” (Shaka to Biz for the link)
When Will This Blow Up In Obama’s Face? State Department Did Not Reply To Libya Officer Who Requested More Security ”When security officer Eric Nordstrom asked for more security in Libya in light of more than 200 security breaches from July 2011 to July 2012, he received no answer. Forty-eight of these recorded breaches took place in Benghazi.” And: WaPo Asks – Where Is Hillary These Days?
When Will This Blow Up In Obama’s Face? Part II. Obama Fundraising Scandal: Follow The Money, If You Can ”…the Obama campaign has apparently been working hard behind the scenes to ensure the story never sees the light of day. Sources report that a taxpayer watchdog group has recently concluded a nine month investigation into both presidential and congressional campaign fundraising practices and uncovered alarming patterns in Obama’s reliance upon smaller, and therefore less transparent donations.” And: That Obama Donations Story Just Got A Lot More Serious

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!! When you’re in a group of people, do you talk about Obama’s miserable record? I know – the response might be eye-rolling, push-back or worse. So what? I most often hear “no politics!” These are usually Obama supporters who don’t want to admit what a horrible job he’s doing. Try saying, “I know – it’s really depressing what’s happened to our country in the past 4 years – let’s eat!” and leave it at that. If it prompts more discussion, you’re in. If not, you’ve gotten your message across anyhow. Remember, though, that between now and November 6 we need to speak up. I’ve given you tons of resources to use…facts that Obamabots will be hard pressed to deny (they’ll try anyhow and start personal attacks or get all emotional. They always do.) If you’re reticent to speak up, here are a couple of stories that will inspire you:
No Fear! Awesome: Caterer For Obama Event Wears Romney Shirt “No one from the government was there when we were sweating it, when we were building this business,” Murty said. Before him was a bank of chafing dishes filled with smoked beef brisket, pulled pork, vegetable parmesan bake and cheesy hash brown casserole provided to the White House press corps covering the president’s three-day swing across Iowa this week.”
No Fear! Virginia Bakery Refuses To Serve Biden ”The owner of Crumb and Get It in Roanoke says he doesn’t agree with the Obama administration’s policies.” And what does this say? Secret Service Bought Cupcakes To Thank Baker For Turning Down Biden
No Fear! Former Obama voters are speaking out:
No Fear! Ryan in Ohio Mocks Joe Biden ”Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s running mate, mocked Vice President Joe Biden Thursday while campaigning in Ohio, by saying “as Joe Biden might say, it’s great to be here in Nevada.”
No Fear! GOP Convention To Feature Former Obama Co-Chair Artur Davis ”Former congressman Artur Davis from Alabama, who officially seconded President Obama’s nomination at the 2008 Democratic convention, said on Wednesday that he will cap off a remarkable political metamorphosis by addressing the Republican convention this year — calling for Obama’s defeat.” Here’s Davis reacting to Slow Joe Biden’s “chains” comment:
No Fear! Arizona Makes Another Stand For Rule Of Law On Immigration ”On Thursday, Governor Jan Brewer enraged the White House, the ACLU and open-borders activists by issuing Executive Order 2012-06, stating that her state reaffirmed the intent of Arizona law on state benefits — from driver’s licenses to in-state college tuition — to illegals, which is a big fat “no” to all of the above.”
In Other News:
Gunman Opens Fire At Conservative Family Research Council Building ”The shooting happened in Washington, D.C., which is the center of the political media universe. There is more evidence in this case that the shooter had political motivations than in other recent cases (Gabby Giffords, Aurora, to name a few) in which the mainstream media jumped to conclusions about the shooter’s motives, falsely implicating conservatives and the Tea Party.” You think Andrea Mitchell will report that he’s a LGBT activist? Virginia Man Charged In Shooting at Family Research Council
Obama/Biden gaffe machine keeps rolling. Biden Forgets What Century He’s Living In
Is Joe history? Exchanging Biden’s Gaffes For Hillary’s Incompetence ”Those who think replacing Biden with Clinton would be trading a buffoon for a hyper-competent global leader are fooling themselves. Rarely in our history have we faced so many challenges abroad with so little success — or so little respect.” Of course, Barry denies all claims that he’s throwing Joe under the bus: White House Says Obama Will Stick With Biden But then there’s this (Shaka to Carl): Biden Sent Home To Delaware To Start Weekend Early (BTW, hubby thinks Sarah Palin & John McCain saying that Biden needs to be replaced is brilliant strategy – if he’s replaced now, it will look like Obama is taking advice from them!!) What say you?
Ryan has energized the ticket. Wisconsin: Romney 48%, Obama 47% And: After Picking Ryan, Romney Leads In Ohio, Virginia And: Romney/Ryan Making Huge Gains Among Young Voters ”For the first time since he began running for president, Republican Mitt Romney has the support of over 40 percent of America’s youth vote…”

- Doug Wilder criticizes Biden, ‘chains’ comment (wtvr.com) Wilder was the first black governor in the country (Virginia). Listen to his perspective. But he still supports Obama.
ALOHA, ALL!! Even though the Democrats are in full spin mode trying to destroy Paul Ryan, Republicans and conservatives are ecstatic over his pick for Romney’s VP. Let’s face it – Ryan has already been demonized by the Dems over his budget plan. And while the old attacks about how Ryan’s plan will “end Medicare as we know it” (never mind that Obama already did that) or throw grandma off a cliff, that’s old news. Deja vu. Heard that before. It won’t have the same impact now because it’s simply not a new attack. Don’t get me wrong, the Romney/Ryan team need to come out strong right NOW and define themselves. It’s important to do this while they have the lamestream media’s attention….before they get distracted by some shiny object. Voters need to understand the stark contrast between Romney/Ryan and Obama/Biden and why we need to fire the last two. A friend of mine who voted for Obama in 2008 claims she supported Reagan in the past. When discussing Romney, she flippantly quipped, “Romney is no Reagan.” I immediately replied, “How do you know? At this point in his first presidential campaign Reagan wasn’t Reagan.” *Cricket Sounds* ;-)
Lots of misinformation is going around about Ryan’s plan for Medicare. Here’s a simple explanation from Dick Morris that highlights the differences between the Romney/Ryan plan and Obama’s plan (one of them has zero plan – guess who?)
Of course, Ryan tried to explain all this to Debbie Dimwit (Wasserman Schultz) in 2012. I don’t know how he kept from smacking her!
Oh yeah…you probably missed the fact that Ryan’s mother lives in Florida – and is on Medicare. CBS Doesn’t Want You To Know Ryan’s Mother Is On Medicare ”For some reason ’60 Minutes’ sent out a transcript of the Romney-Ryan interview but decided not to air the portion where Paul Ryan tells Bob Schieffer his mother is a “Medicare senior in Florida.” I’m sure it was just an oversight.
Is it just me, or are there lots of dofusses among the Dems? Joe Biden Says Romney ‘Going To Put You Back In Chains,’ Thinks Virginia Rally Goers Are North Carolinians Yep. Crazy Uncle Joe is at it again! Be sure to click on the link for the videos.
In contrast, the GOP has people like this: Allen West Cruises To Victory In Florida GOP Primary But West is a primary target for the Dems in November – they would love to unseat him! Support him if you can.
Be sure to see this movie!!!! 2016 – Obama’s America It’s based on two books by Dinesh D’Souza and produced by the Academy-Award winning producer of Schindler’s List. Hubby and I have tickets for Friday, thanks to Hawaii Republicans For Life!!
Final Thought: “You’re right to say we’re not coming before you today to say we have a definitive solution to that long-term problem. What we do know is we don’t like yours.” Timothy Geithner to Paul Ryan, during a House Budget Committee meeting on the debt and deficit in early 2012
And: “We don’t have a trillion-dollar debt because we haven’t taxed enough; we have a trillion-dollar debt because we spend too much.” Ronald Reagan. Kinda sounds like Paul Ryan, doesn’t it????

ALOHA, ALL!! President ROMNEY/Vice President RYAN – HAS A NICE RING TO IT!! A few resources about the next Vice President of the United States (Shaka to Carl):
Who Is This Paul Ryan? “We lost our brand as the party of fiscal responsibility, and we’ve got to get it back,” said Ryan, a close ally of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. “It’s important that we give voters a very clear choice on fiscal policy.” Last year Republicans chose him to give the well-received party response to Obama’s State of the Union address.”
Ryan has Ohio ties – he went to Miami University in Oxford, Ohio
IT’S ROMNEY-RYAN 2012. “Ryan puts the national debt front and center in the election, on par with or maybe even ahead of jobs. This is a winner of an issue, it’s what motivated people in 2010, and it will cause huge turnout.”
Byron York: Romney Goes Bold. ”By instead choosing Rep. Paul Ryan, Romney is sending a clear signal that he intends to run a more daring and more ideologically vigorous campaign than he has run up to this point.”
And on the day Ryan was picked, it’s worth pointing out that we’ve gone 1200 days now without a budget.
Roger Kimball writes: The comeback team (or why Romney will win by a landslide). “The man who has added more than $5 trillion to the federal debt, who is running an annual deficit of some $1.4 trillion, who has burdened American business with a nightmare of stifling regulations, who has squandered hundreds of billions of dollars on failed “green” energy initiatives and non-stimulating “stimulus” packages, who has insinuated government into the private sector in blundering unproductive and fiscally ruinous ways and foisted on an unwilling public the horror of ObamaCare—that chap is going down and going down in a landslide.”
But this is my favorite line: ”Unlike Joe Biden, he does not regularly give the impression of having suffered a lobotomy.”
Lest we forget? Look how Ryan goes after Obama and Obamacare. Preezy must be thinking, “Gee this guy’s a lot smarter than me!” Mr. HopeAndChange apparently stormed out of the room afterward:
And here’s how the Dem machine is planning to attack Ryan. He Isn’t Stupid so He Must Be Evil ”Paul Ryan murders puppies and kittens. The lifelong Green Bay Packers fan then uses the dead animal carcasses for field goal practice. Harry Reid has an anonymous source named Fareed Zakaria who stole from somebody a column proving that Paul Ryan then sold the dead animal skins and never declared the income on his taxes for the past ten years.” Good stuff!!!!

ALOHA, ALL!! Let’s go there. Let’s open Pandora’s Box on who may or may not have committed a felony. Preezy himself opened that box (well technically his staffer did but Obama says he won’t apologize for the outlandish slander against Romney made by his deputy campaign manager.) Shall we outline the ways Barry/Barack Soetoro/Obama may have committed a felony during his lifetime? (What is his legal name anyway? That’s not a facetious question – does anyone really know?) You can start here: If Anyone Is A Criminal, It’s Obama And then check out this one: Who’s The Real Felon, Mr. Obama?

AND THE BIGGEST CRIME OBAMA HAS PERPETRATED ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE? Arpaio’s Obama Probe Finds National Security Threat ”Under Hawaii Revised Statute 338-17.8, a person only has to be an established resident of Hawaii, not necessarily a U.S. citizen, and pay taxes there for one year to be able to register an out-of-state or foreign-born person with an official Hawaii birth certificate.” His grandma “Toots” knew all this. She’s likely the one who got Barry’s “papers” for him. Isn’t it odd how she died two days before the election in 2008? Just sayin’…
Bet you didn’t know this one. Obama Took Cash From Bain Execs ”Apparently, it’s fine to outsource so long as the name on the contribution check reads “Barack Obama.” UPDATE: Other Dems took money from Bain as well, including Nancy Nitwit: If Bain Is So Evil Why Do All These Democrats Take Their Donations?
We don’t need no stinkin’ deadlines! Obama Misses New Budget Deadline ”The Obama administration has missed another annual budget deadline, failing to send Congress a mid-session budget review before July 16….House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) pointed out that the mid-session review has never been delivered on time by Obama.”
Give. Me. A. Break! Obamas Get Booed For Dissing The Kiss Cam But here’s the best part: ”Turns out the president and his wife got a second chance, and delivered. They also made sure the press was present for it. As Zeke Miller of Buzzfeed caught in the press pool report, the press was sitting outside the Verizon Center in vans during much of the game, but were brought back in and given a clear view of the Obamas for their second shot at the Kiss Cam. Because nothing’s sexier than a second try at spontaneity. I wonder which moment will get more coverage.” Oh yeah….and they missed the women’s game but showed up for the men’s game. Can you imagine if Romney had done that?
He’s ready for all 57 states! Obama Switches Off His Teleprompter ”The difference is dramatic. Instead of turning in his characteristic manner from right to left and back again, reading from the two sloping, clear-plastic planes of his teleprompter, Obama has glanced down at pages in a binder on his podium.”
BTW….I saw a live stream of Romney speaking in Pennsylvania yesterday. FANTASTIC!!!! And no teleprompter. I tried to find it on YouTube and found this version. Or go HERE to see video and audio

Final Thought: “Do we believe in an America that is great because of government or do we believe in an America that’s great because of free people allowed to pursue their dreams and their futures?” Mitt Romney, Irwin, PA. July 17, 2012

ALOHA, ALL!! Remember the Democrat’s ads showing Paul Ryan throwing Granny over a cliff? The implication was that Ryan and Republicans don’t care about old people or those who are vulnerable. They’d rather throw them off a cliff than promote policies that “help” them. They want to “end” Medicare so that seniors won’t have the care they have now. In contrast, the Democrats claim they are all sweetness and light and only have the best interests of the elderly in mind. Bull feathers. Check out Obama’s latest slight-of-hand trick to get the senior vote in November: Obama’s $8.3 Billion Re-Election Slush Fund ”Not wanting to confront angry voters who’ve seen their health care choice (Medicare Advantage) eliminated by ObamaCare, the administration apparently decided instead to paper over these spending cuts, pumping $8.3 billion back into the program through “bonuses” to Medicare Advantage plans.” Got that? Seniors were going to realize just weeks before the election that they didn’t have the option of Medicare Advantage anymore. So what does Obama do? He infuses the program with $8.3 billion to tide the program over until after the election. This guy is despicable. #WECANTWAIT
UPDATE: GAO Calls on Obama To Cancel Medicare Bonuses ”In a blow to the Obama administration on Medicare, government auditors Monday called for the cancellation of a costly bonus program for private health plans that congressional Republicans have criticized as a wasteful political ploy…The bonuses are the costliest demonstration program in Medicare history. They’ll be paid from the Medicare trust fund.”
2024 and 2033 aren’t that far off. Medicare, Social Security Funds Going, Going, Gone ”…the trustees from both programs have come out with new numbers, and the state of Social Security and Medicare is even worse than previously reported.”
In Other News:
ICYMI: The War on Terror Is Over ”The article itself describes the Obama administration’s new vision of foreign policy, which admits no enemies. Everyone, in this view, is a friend. Islamism, says the Obama administration, is just fine, so long as it does not openly support terrorism.” Ah yes…a world filled with unicorns and pixie dust,
Does he know something we don’t know? Marco Rubio Schedules Major Speech on Foreign Policy ”Rubio, considered to be a top vice presidential pick for likely GOP nominee Mitt Romney, is set to speak Wednesday at The Brookings Institution, a left-leaning think tank in Washington, D.C.”
This is one of the dumbest stories I’ve ever seen. Does Martin Bashir really think he’s a serious journalist? Hey Martin – your prejudice is showing.
This poll has been touted as showing that Republicans are more knowledgeable than Democrats on political issues: What the Public Knows About the Political Parties But when I look at it, I’m shocked at how stupid young people are!
Justice for Trayvon? Mob of Black Adults Beats White Man ”Owens’ sister, Ashley Parker, saw the attack. “It was the scariest thing I have ever witnessed.” Parker says 20 people, all African American, attacked her brother on the front porch of his home, using “brass buckles, paint cans and anything they could get their hands on.” Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson are mute and hiding in their respective cesspools.
Now THIS is clever! “Fore” More Years? ”By donating $18, you can help us put President Obama on a permanent vacation. We cannot afford another round of President Obama’s failed leadership. It’s time to have a president whose idea of being “hands on” doesn’t mean getting a better grip on the golf club.”
Final Thought: ”But here’s what I would tell people of my generation. I turn 40 this year. There isn’t going to be a Social Security. There isn’t going to be a Medicare when you retire. Forget about what your benefit is going to look like. There isn’t going to be one if we don’t make some reforms to save that program now.” Marco Rubio
