State Senators and Others Try To Stop Tech Pac’s Endorsement of Cuccinelli!

The reasoning behind the NVTC TechPAC’s nod — Cuccinelli had detailed responses to questions in candidate interviews, three board members said, while McAuliffe was uninformed and superficial — bolsters the view that the Democrat’s breezy style doesn’t sit well with some Virginians. Two of the people said they were leaning toward Cuccinelli before the interviews; one disliked both candidates.

Cuccinelli impressed the board’s majority as a serious, detail-oriented candidate while McAuliffe seemed to wing it, according to three board members present for the interviews who spoke on the condition of anonymity to speak frankly.

“Terry was his normal, flamboyant self,” said a board member present for both interviews. “He didn’t want to get pinned down to any details. He didn’t give any details. He was all about jobs, jobs, jobs — ‘I’m just going to take care of the situation when the time comes. I’m just going to do it.’ It was all [expletive].”

Cuccinelli, by contrast, the person said, “was precise. He was thoughtful. He thought through all the issues. He had a clear position on all those issues, and he didn’t agree with the council on all the issues.”

Two people present said that in response to a question about how he’d accomplish his goals as governor, McAuliffe told the PAC board that as an Irish Catholic he’d be adept at taking people out for drinks and doing whatever it takes to get things done. McAuliffe is well known as a schmoozer, but he seemed to badly misread his methodical audience with that answer, several of those present said.

On a question about whether Virginia should stay in something called the “open-trade-secrets pact,” Cuccinelli gave a thoroughly researched response, the person said.

But McAuliffe answered, according to the source: “ ‘I don’t know what that is. I’ll have to look it up later.’ And then he turns back to the guy [who asked] and said ‘Well, what do you think we should do?’ And the guy says, ‘We want Virginia to stay in it.’ And then Terry says, ‘Okay, we will.’ ” (source)

So after McAuliffe bombed his interview with the Northern Virginia Technology Council, a few State Senators, and even our out-going Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling made calls on behalf of Terry McAuliffe.

“The pressure is hot and heavy,” Dendy Young, TechPAC chairman and chief executive of McLean Capital, wrote in an e-mail to TechPAC members Sunday morning. Young wrote that he received calls Saturday from Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-Va.), Lt. Governor Bill Bolling (R) and Aneesh Chopra, the former U.S. chief technology officer and Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor. Young also said that, on the other side of the issue, Cuccinelli called him, too.

“I urge you to stop any endorsement of Cuccinelli,” state Sen. Janet D. Howell (D-Fairfax), told PAC leaders Friday in an e-mail. “The ramifications of his being endorsed will be huge within the Senate Democratic caucus. . . . The response [from legislators] will be frigid and doors will be closed [when the council seeks help with its legislative agenda]. Achieving the goals of NVTC will be difficult to impossible.”

Senate Minority Leader Richard L. Saslaw (D-Fairfax) and Sen. Barbara Favola (D-Arlington) seconded those sentiments in their e-mails. In interviews, the senators said the messages should not be perceived as threats but as expressions of their frustration, given Cuccinelli’s opposition this year to the council’s top legislative priority: passage of a transportation funding overhaul. McAuliffe publicly supported the $1.4 billion-a-year plan; Cuccinelli opposed it as a “massive tax increase” but has said on the campaign trail that he would not seek its repeal as governor.

At least 3 State Senators effectively tried to threaten NVTC Tech-PAC into not endorsing Cuccinelli. Fun times.

Boenher needs to go!

 

Cry-Baby Boehner has got to go. Not only does he “absolutely” trust Obama, He doesn’t think the debt crisis is an “immediate threat” & says that he is part of Obama’s “common-sense caucus.”  Somebody in the conservative movement needs to primary his butt.

FLOTUS Goes After Obese Parents

I swear this woman has an eating disorder & is forcing her psychosis on the the rest of us.

“But in the end, we also know that it’s not enough to simply change the way our children eat — we have to

change our own habits and behaviors as well. And this is final point I want to make today. We as parents are our children’s first and best role models and this is particularly true when it comes to their health. Research shows that kids who have at least one obese parent or more are then twice as likely to be obese as adults. So, as much as we might plead with our kids to “do as I say and not as I do,” we know that we can’t lie around on the couch eating French fries and candy bars and expect our kids to eat carrots and run around the block. But too often that’s exactly what we’re doing.”  FLOTUS Goes After Obese Parents.

What about those of us who have medical issues that cause us to gain weight? I’ve got a thyroid problem that went undiagnosed for several years, and has resulted in weight gain.

Or the fact that childbirth widens your hips and changes your bone structure?  I was a skinny size 12 when I got married.  I had my first baby, and my hips got so wide I can’t wear anything under a 20 just because of my hips.

I dare this woman to come talk to me.

Karl Rove = Liar!

Blame anyone but me! *pout pout*

Blame anyone but me! *pout pout*

Karl Rove, the GOP Operative who has joined together with several rich GOP donors & declared war on the Tea Party, is busted lying about his involvement in Reagan’s campaign. He was actually actively working against Ronald Reagan in 1980.

This comes on the heels of his gaffe – repeatedly calling Sarah Steelman “Deb Steelman”, and his spouting off about the MO Senate race with little inside knowledge of said race. Read Dana Loesch’s blog for some inside insight to the MO race – essentially, the party in MO had crowned it’s favorite, and when the people did NOT agree, the GOP took it’s money and went home, refusing to help Akin at all, despite the fact that he was heavily favored to win prior to opening his mouth and inserting his foot all the way to his kneecap – something that could have been avoided if the GOP had helped him prep for some of the stupidity headed his way.

Personally, I think Rove is a pathetic little man who is upset that he can’t control the Tea Party. He’s mad that his man lost, again, and instead of looking to see what he did wrong, he’s going to pin the blame on the media’s favorite goat, the Tea Party.

Because the Obama Administration sees women as nothing but their “bits”

This was on the official Obama campaign Tumblr account:

 

Because, as a woman nothing else matters, right?  Certainly not:

Fast & Furious.
16 Trillion in debt. (That’s $16,000,000,000,000.00!!!)
8+% Unemployment that is really 16% unemployment.
The Obama Administration lying to the American People about the Benghazi Terrorist attack.
Obama’s Attorney General having ties to the Black Panthers & possibly terrorism.

I could go on, and on, and on, and on. But I don’t have enough time right now.

Code Pink, dressed as Giant Lady Parts.

But according to our President’s campaign – the same campaign that has made a 30-something activist law student the star of their campaign because she wants the government to pay for her birth control – according to the President’s campaign, women are nothing more than their “lady parts” and the only issue that matters is Birth Control (read: Abortion).

So, the democrats see me as nothing but a giant walking vay-jay-jay, but it’s the Republicans who don’t respect women and are waging a War on Women?

After blaming GOP for leaving him with the theoretical dinner bill, Obama forgets to pay his dinner tab.

Tuesday afternoon President Obama mixed his metaphors a bit at a fundraiser in Baltimore. (emphasis mine)

“If they start trying to give you a bunch of facts and figures suggesting that it’s true, what they’re not telling you is they baked all this stuff into the cake,” he said.

“I love listening to these guys give us lectures about debt and deficits. I inherited a trillion-dollar deficit. We had a surplus, they turned it into a deficit, built it into a structural deficit that lasts for decades, and — isn’t that something?” President Obama said at a fundraiser today.

“This notion that somehow we caused the deficits is just wrong. It’s just not true. Anybody who looks at the math will tell you it’s not true. If they start trying to give you a bunch of facts and figures suggesting that it’s true, what they’re not telling you is they baked all this stuff into the cake with those tax cuts and a prescription drug plan that they didn’t pay for and the wars,” he said.

“So all of this stuff is baked in, with all the interest payments for it, it’s like somebody goes to the restaurant, orders a big steak dinner, martini, all that stuff and then just as you’re sitting down, they leave and accuse you of running up the tab. That’s what they do,” he said.  (Via RealClearPolitics H/T Salon.com)

The following day, after basically accusing the GOP of skipping out on the bill for a steak dinner & martinis, our Illustrious Leader went out for some BBQ with a few guys, and proceeded to skip out on the bill.  Not.  Kidding.

Amid the bustle of President Obama’s surprise stop for barbecue Wednesday the White House apparently overlooked one key detail: the bill.

Celebrating Father’s Day early, the president had lunch with two service members and two local barbers at Kenny’s BBQ on Capitol Hill.

As the group chatted about fatherhood, the president enjoyed a steaming plate of pork ribs with hot sauce, collard greens, red beans and rice and cornbread.

The bill for the president and his four guests was $55.58, but was left unpaid at the point of sale, according to pool reports.

The White House corrected the oversight and settled up the tab by the end of the business day.  (Via ABCNews, h/t WeaselZippers)

You can’t make this stuff up.

 

UPDATE:  Gateway Pundit gave me a hat tip in his story here.

Because nothing says “Respect for the Presidency” like pounding the President’s face into the ground over & over again.

At yesterday’s Easter Egg Roll at the White House, President Obama’s staff had a very special treat for the kids: a basketball clinic featuring NBA players. And there was a second special treat for the children: the basketball itself featured the stern mug of one Barack Obama, as tweeted by ABC News’ Jake Tapper. As Keith Koffler points out at White House Dossier, “Apparently, the basketball lesson doesn’t include instruction in humility.”

Seriously?? So much did we the tax payer shell out?  Not just for the custom printed basketballs, but also for the NBA Players’ appearances?

 

Update:  Jake Tapper reports on Twitter that the Obama-Balls were NOT bought using Taxpayer money:

 

Has Senator Dick Durbin ever even read the Constitution?

Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (Ill.) said in a congressional hearing Tuesday that a young person who is an illegal alien in the United States today may someday become president.

“When I look around this room, I see America’s future, our doctors, our teachers, our nurses, our engineers, our scientists, our soldiers, our congressmen, our senators, and maybe our president,” Durbin said immediately after having asked all young persons in the room to stand if they were currently undocumented aliens who would be eligible to become citizens if the DREAM Act were passed.

Dude.  I’m pretty sure no one in that group is going to be our future President.  Senators & Representatives, maybe – IF, and that’s a big IF, they get legal. But President… Um… No Dude.  The Constitution, in Article 2, Section 1, says that a person must be 35, and a natural born citizen (read ’em and weep Durbin) – and really, that is heart of the whole Birther thing — what defines natural born citizen.  Whatever that definition…  I’m pretty sure none of those DREAM ACTer’s will qualify.

Is Steele really this dumb?

Dude is trying to say that because he was elected RNC chair, and the steps he & the GOP took this past election, Tea Party folks did not form a third party.

Steele is trying to spin the situation and make it seem as if his efforts and that of the national party corralled the Tea Party movement and led the Tea Partiers to an electoral victory. Nothing could be further from the truth.

In fact, it was the ‘tuther way ’round, Mr. Steele. It was the Tea Partiers that forced the GOP to take notice, to heed policy ideas, and to glom onto Tea Party support to win in 2010.

via » RNC Chair Steele Tries to Take Credit for 2010 Tea Party Success – Big Government.

Dude, seriously?  Tea Party folks dragged your dumbass up out of the mud and saved this election for you.  Need proof? Look at how many party favorites went the way of Dede Scozzafava.  Heck, the fact that there even was a Scozzafava in the first place proved the GOP just didn’t get it.   Dude needs to go.

I want Sarah Palin for RNC chair.  I know alot of conservatives are hoping she’ll run for President, but I think Palin would do ALOT more good as party chair.  There she could clean out the RINO trash and bring the whole party back in line with true conservatism.  Plus, she has ALOT of influence in elections – which is what your party chair should be able to do – and she kicks rear end at fundraising.
