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!! Eric Holder’s Department of (In)Justice is a festering cesspool of cronyism and corruption. Two new stories have just emerged to prove the point. Have you wondered why Jon Corzine hasn’t been prosecuted for losing $1.6 billion in funds? Ah…look no further than this: Corzine’s MF Global Was Client of Eric Holder’s Law Firm Well isn’t that special? But it goes beyond Holder – Associate Attorney General Tony West also has ties to MF Global. So does former FBI Director Louis Freeh. This stinks to high heaven!
More DOJ incest. Nepotism Prevalent at Justice Department, Says IG Report “The Justice Department’s inspector general found at least seven instances of federal employees engaging in illegal attempts to hire family members at the agency, according to a report issued Thursday.”
FIRE ERIC HOLDER! FIRE HIS BOSS, TOO!
In Other News:
Senate Votes To Raise Taxes On Small Businesses “Yesterday, the Senate narrowly voted (51-48) to raise taxes on 1.2 million small businesses, which will likely kill more than 700,000 jobs at a time when nearly 13 million Americans are out of work. Senators Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Jim Webb (D-VA) joined all Republicans in bipartisan opposition to the tax hike.”
Thank you, Ron Paul! House Passes Audit The Fed Bill “…Paul’s audit the Fed bill passed the House by 327 to 98. There’s a good chance the measure will be endorsed in the Republican platform and advocated by Mitt Romney during the fall campaign.” NOTE: I don’t support Ron Paul for President, but appreciate his efforts regarding the Fed. He has been tireless and deserves kudos for this. In many other ways, he’s a dingbat.
Be sure to “Eat Mor Chikn” at Chick-fil-A on August 1! Hey Boston, Leave Chick-fil-A Alone! Boston’s mayor has said they are not welcome. Roseanne Barr wants people who eat there to get cancer. But here’s the best: Rahmbo says they offend “Chicago values.” What values are those – murder, corruption, sleazy campaigning? LOL!!!!! “Anti-Christian organizers have been staging boycotts and smear campaigns against “anti-gay” Chick-fil-A for the past year. An activist lesbian reporter for The New York Times poured fuel on the fire.” Lots of good Chick-fil-A images going around on Facebook and Twitter. Here are a few. The first one has to do with Facebook shutting down a page (started by Mike Huckabee) that supports Chick-fil-A.
TOTUS (Teleprompter of the United States) must be yelling: “Put me in, Coach!!!” First, Barry claimed the private sector was “doing fine.” Then, he said “you didn’t build that.” Now this. All off-teleprompter.
It worked? Really? Consumer Confidence Hits 2012 Low “At 78.5, confidence is down three points from a week ago, down three points from a month ago and down 11 points from three months ago. Confidence is down 19 points from the highest levels of 2012.” And White House Projects $1.2T Deficit, Lower Economic Growth Also GDP Growth Slows To 1.5% In June So tell us, Barry: what “worked”???????
UPDATE: Huma Abedin Has DIRECT Ties To Muslim Brotherhood “…It turns out that national security expert Ryan Mauro has unveiled tangible evidence that Abedin has direct ties herself – not just through her brother, mother and late father (as if they weren’t enough) — to violent radicals…”
Buyer’s remorse. This is a great parody video of an Obama supporter from 2008 looking back on how stupid she was then.
