A Day Of News
The news came at us from all angles today….so let’s get to it:
Senate Approves ‘Border Surge’ Plan In 69-29 Immigration Vote
Supreme Court Clears Path for Same-Sex Marriage in California
Supreme Court Boosts Gay Marriage; Strikes Down DOMA
Section 4 of Voting Rights Act Found Unconstitutional
CNN’s ‘Crossfire’ to return with Stephanie Cutter, Van Jones, S.E. Cupp and Newt Gingrich
How many of us remember warnings from the 1950’s and 60’s that if we were not vigilant, communists could become as common as members of the Chamber of Commerce (HELOOO….Van Jones). And how many can forget Stephanie Cutter and her lies about Romney (and his IRS records)? Gingrich is perhaps in his best job, where leadership and follow-through isn’t needed. SE Cupp is a rising star and will do a phenomenal job.
I recall telling my sons just after Obama had finished his first year, “can you live in this kind of economy and culture for another three years like the last one? Could you do it for six years?” Don’t want to say it, but can you endure another 11 years?

One More Thing: Obama left on his family vacation to Africa today. That’s OK….we didn’t need that $100 million, did we??
Hump Day Report: Media Making Amends?
ALOHA, ALL!! Something odd is happening. Did you ever think Oprah’s BFF, Gayle King, would say amazing, complimentary things about Mitt Romney? On TV? And it wasn’t just her, Charlie Rose did too! What the heck is going on? They were interviewing author Jeff Benedict who wrote the book, “The Mormon Way,” and is a friend of Mitt Romney’s. Check this out (shaka to Susie for the link): Doing Business The Mormon Way Coming on the heels of the Newsweek cover screaming “Hit the Road, Barack,” it makes one wonder if journalists and TV commentators have grown spines. Are they finally searching for truth? Nah – they’re just covering their okoles because they know Obama is toast. Then there’s Chris Matthews (see below.)
Do you think this story will get out? Romney Charitable Giving Has Outpaced Obama Key point: “[D]uring a comparable period before Obama and Romney were running for president, Romney’s giving probably was at least ten times Obama’s as a percentage of their incomes, and possibly much more.”
How about this one? Romney Closes Bain To Look For Daughter of Missing Colleague “And so I said,” Romney recalled when asked about the incident during a town hall meeting in March 2012, “‘Let’s close the firm, let’s close the company. Let’s all of us fly down to New York and try to find her….Gay, Romney, and team literally fanned out on the streets of Manhattan in suits and ties, distributing 300,000 fliers and asking passersby point-blank if they had seen the missing girl.” Hopefully, we’ll be seeing this ad a lot more from now until November 6:
RIP Neil Armstrong. Of course, Obama managed to use the death of an American hero to promote himself: To Honor Neil Armstrong, Obama Posts Photo of Himself Yes, he did. “Obama’s greatest achievement, though, is creating his own personal narrative. He is his own personal touchstone. Even when honoring a great American hero, Obama can’t help but thrust himself into the event.” Frankly, I don’t think Armstrong was an Obamabot: Armstrong “In one of his last public appearances, Armstrong testified before a congressional committee against the Obama administration’s plan to redirect NASA’s efforts away from human exploration of space and toward more basic long-term science research, a plan he called “devastating.” We’ve lost another great one.
Not much to say here: Obama Rejects Pro-Life Catholic Cardinal’s Benediction At DNC Of course, Muslims get a full day of activities. And Dems say the GOP is extreme?????
LOL!!!!! Still love Newt. Chris Matthews should know better that mess with someone with a superior intellect, which means just about anyone. Doofus. Gingrich is in another league!

GOP Uses Convention Debt Clock To Play Up Obama’s Red Ink
And…..new ad to be unveiled at the GOP convention Tuesday! ‘Bow To Nobody’ is from the Special Operations For America Super PAC. Yep – the SEALs. You know….the guys that Barry said he wasn’t taking “too seriously.” Take this, Barry!
BTW, did you see 2016 yet???? Apparently the press is perplexed about why it’s so popular: Why Is The Press Ignoring The Success of ‘2016’?
Final Thought: “Truth is more of a stranger than fiction.” Mark Twain
