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.

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 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:

 

The Debt Deal sux azz. Here’s why.

Speaker John Boehner posted a summary of the debt deal online last night last night after it was announced that a deal had been reached.

via The Boehner Plan – Summary Slides 1-7 | The Gateway Pundit.

Go check out the slides Jim Hoft posted.  Then come back….

That last slide is what does this for me. Did you see the bullet point about how if the Joint commitee can’t come to an agreement then the cuts will be made across the board, with HALF the cuts coming from DEFENSE??

So… We have an aging fleet, that is technologically outdated and needs to be replaced. We ran out of missiles in Libya (WTF!!!) and now…. if 12 dudes who haven’t managed to agree on anything yet don’t agree on 1.2 TRILLION dollars in Cuts, Defense will get 500+ BILLION taken from their budget — that is not allowed to come from Military Pay. WTF!!!

Of course, no one is talking about how just 603 American soldiers died in Afganistan under 8 years of Bush, but Obama’s Afgan death toll is over 1000. No one is talking about how dangerous Iraq has become since the draw-down. No one is talking about how much money is being spent to defend Muslim Brotherhood affiliated rebels who are now killing each other off in Libya.

But Oh… if those 12 Congress folks can’t agree… will take have the cuts out of Defense.

Plus, a commenter at Gateway Pundit pointed out that the Joint Committee would, under the framework they’ve been given, have the power to allow the Bush Tax Cuts to expire, without calling the ensuing increase a “tax hike”.  Seriously? Boehner expects us to believe this is a good deal?  Seriously?

In the words of Whitney Houston — “Oh HALE TO THE NO!!!”

I do not want this to pass. At all.

Oh, the irony. Afgan Muslims burn Korans during protest over Koran burning.

As the dust settles in Afghanistan after sustained protest over a Florida pastor’s Quran burning, many residents in Kandahar are facing an unpleasant truth: More Qurans were burned in the course of their protests than by Terry Jones. The demonstrations, which started peacefully, quickly turned violent, killing at least nine people and injuring scores in Kandahar City alone. And as protesters vandalized a girls’ school and set fire to shops, Qurans also inadvertently went up in flames. “If they burn a shop, there is a Quran in every shop, so this is a big problem,” says Azizullah Aziz, a perfume and soap salesman in Kandahar City. “People don’t know how to protest.”

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.

The TSA can kiss my A-Double Snakes.

This video disturbs me on so many levels.

My vision turned red the first time I saw this little 3 yr old girl kicking at the TSA agents while screaming, “Don’t touch me!”  The Mama Grizzly in me wanted to jump through the screen back in time and stand between that baby girl and that TSA agent.  I wanted to lay some smack down on someone on that child’s behalf.

My next instinct was to scream at the parents.  How could they? How could that father just stand by, running his cell phone cam when his child was in such obvious distress? Yea, there was definitely a story there, but the man should be a father first, reporter second – not the other way around. Arrgghh!!  And the mom…  Maybe my vision is skewed here, being that I’m a mom with a couple of kids on the Autism spectrum, but really?  I can kind of see where she tries to make the best of a bad situation.  She tries to pick up the child and comfort her while the screener keeps grabbing at her. But seriously? I wouldn’t have let them touch my child in the first place.  I would raise holy hell.  They would be dragging my butt to jail, because if some laid a hand on my child, there would be punches thrown.

But my anger and frustration with the parents melted away as I listened to the interview with the TSA Supervisor.  I was absolutely horrified to hear the TSA Supervisor say that they need to “turn it into a game.”  Are you kidding?  TSA is not the best at background checks, even hiring illegals, felons, and kid-touchers.

Indeed, back in March it emerged that TSA worker Sean Shanahan, who was employed at Boston Logan International Airport to pat down passengers, had been charged with multiple child sex crimes targeting an underage girl.” —Prison Planet

So their bright idea is to make these searches – which, by the way, means touching in ways that would get most people sent to prison – into games? WTF? I want to know what this guy is smoking that he thinks it’s ok for anyone to lay hands on a child in such a manner.  Oh, but the alternative is to go through an x-ray machine without the benefit of that lead-lined skirt they give you at the hospital to protect your bits and pieces from radiation.  Oh yea. Lets do that. /facepalm.

My outrage at TSA is only magnified after reading accounts like this – a young mother prevented from making sure her autistic toddler doesn’t wander off – the comments here, and listening to accounts like this one:

After all this testimony, I am more pissed then ever at our ineffective, inept TSA, and the Government, that not only continues to allow this rampant violation of our Constitutional 4th Amendment Rights, but tries to tell us it’s all for our good and we should just go along with the public molestation.  Really, Janet Napolitano, really?  I mean, when the government is in the business of terrorizing children and molesting law abiding citizens who wish to make use of a private enterprise, I think you could almost say that the Terrorists are winning this round. Geez.

D.C. playing racial politics? Meh, what else is new?

Washington DC.  I grew up a few miles outside of D.C.  So it really doesn’t surprise me at all to hear that Mayor Adrian Fenty – whose policies reduced the murder rate and helped to better the school system – is out.  Joe Hicks, of PJTV, has an absolutely brilliant piece on how Racial prejudice played a roll in DC politics.

I expect nothing less from the state of California.

Actually, this does not surprise me one bit:

Anyone seeking low-wage employment as a fry cook or burger flipper at fast food restaurants in Calif. will soon have to pass a state-administered licensing exam to assure they are skilled in their ‘trades.’

Looks like California has found a new method of fundraising.
