Liberals PANIC!

Oh yeah... the liberals are in full on panic in an attempt to save super liberal Senator Russ Feingold:

New polls showing Wisconsin Sen. Russ Feingold trailing his tea-party opponent are setting off alarm bells in the country’s liberal movement.

A number of top activist groups sent frantic fund-raising pleas this week to their members to send money to Feingold’s outgunned campaign, raising a total of about $600,000 over a 48-hour period.

continued...

Okay, in what alternate universe is a 18 year incumbent's campaign "outgunned"? That is total garbage! Stop playing Feingold's game! Senator Feingold likes to play the victim and act like the underdog.

Sorry if a 18 year incumbent is the underdog, then the 18 year incumbent is a seriously flawed candidate and does not deserve to be re-elected!

Where are you, Senator Feingold?

Hat Tip Charlie Sykes

It appears that we have lost Senator Feingold again. Every time President Obama comes to the state of Wisconsin, Senator Feingold gets lost.

This time, the President is appearing on behalf of the senator and Feingold still cannot bother to show up. Hopefully Mayor Barrett will be there to soften the blow for the President.

My Way News
Democratic Party Chairman Timothy Kaine says he sees no slight in Wisconsin Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold skipping a campaign rally tonight where President Barack Obama is appearing on his behalf.

Kaine tells CBS's "The Early Show" that candidates "make their own decisions about these things." And Kaine, a former Virginia governor, says Feingold understands that Obama can energize the party's base.


Well, Mr. President, Senator Feingold stood against the people of Wisconsin, and supported your massive failure of a stimulus boondoggle and the job killing government takeover of our very lives in health care "reform". It appears that it will cost the Senator his job.

Thanks for admitting it, Senator Feingold

It sure helps an opponent's campaign a ton when a candidate actually admits to voting for the most unpopular legislation in years.

Senator Feingold, thanks for admitting that you voted for the highly unpopular and complete waste of almost a trillion dollars known as the stimulus bill.

Just as unpopular, maybe more...thanks for admitting that you voted for the health care boondoggle.

MJS:



Speaking in front of state AFL-CIO unionists meeting here at their state convention, U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) defended his votes for extending unemployment compensation, approving the health-care and economic stimulus bills, and opposing trade agreements.

Red Carpet needed!

Looking for a swath of red carpet to roll out for President Obama, welcoming him back to Wisconsin.

I mean, come on...Senator Feingold and Mayor Barrett really need your help right now Mr. President.

Mr. President, just ignore the lowest approval ratings of your presidency and the idea that most Americans are less likely to support a candidate that you support.

See CNN poll:

A solid majority of all Americans -- 56 percent -- say that Obama has fallen short of their expectations. As a result, the president is not in a position to help struggling Democratic candidates; only 37 percent of likely voters say they are more likely to vote for a congressional candidate backed by Obama.

Come to Wisconsin anyway, Mr. President! I am certain we can rustle up some red carpet from somewhere!

...or better yet...perhaps you can give us some more of the useless stimulus money and we can buy you a new red carpet!

Signs of strong economy?


Found this nifty little chart on AOL.

Here is what all of the letters mean:

A) Obama budget predicts that the unemployment rate for 2009 will be 8.1 percent (actual rate is 9.3 percent), and says it will be 7.9 percent in 2010 (average so far: 9.7 percent). -- Feb. 26, 2009
B) Fed Chairman Bernanke says he sees "green shoots" of U.S. recovery, which, he said, would "pick up steam" next year. -- March 15, 2009
C) Obama says, "We are beginning to see glimmers of hope." -- April 14, 2009
D) CNN reports that "Job Recovery May Be on the Way." -- May 18, 2009
E) Jeffrey Kling of the Brookings Institution says, "It seems clear the U.S. economy has turned a corner." -- June 5, 2009
F) Bernanke says recovery is under way and "prospects for a return to growth in the near term appear good." -- Sept. 16, 2009
G) Obama says, "We are seeing the corner turn on the economy growing again." -- Feb. 7, 2010
H) Obama says, "The worst of the storm is over. ... We are beginning to turn the corner." -- April 3, 2010
I) Obama says, "The economy is getting stronger by the day." -- June 4, 2010
I) Vice President Joe Biden dubs the months ahead "Recovery Summer," and David Axelrod adds that "this summer will be the most active Recovery Act season yet." -- June 17, 2010
I) Obama declares the economic recovery is "well under way." -- June 29, 2010
J) White House press secretary Robert Gibbs says, "The economy is getting stronger." -- July 8, 2010

Attention President Obama...

Bush is not president anymore.

I thought I would just throw that out there, since our current President seems to have forgotten that the election is over and he won.

Reuters headline:

Obama attacks Bush policies in Bush's home state


You are in charge now, President Obama. There are no more Bush policies, only your policies. Notice our economic situation, Mr. President. Your policies are a failure.

Friday, August 06, 2010

How can the media get away with such spin?

The overall economy lost 131,000 jobs in July, but you would not know that based on how the media is choosing to portray the economic numbers.

Headline after headline is portraying the economy as gaining 71,000 private sector jobs. For example, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is portraying this headline:

Private employers added 71,000 jobs in July; unemployment rate unchanged at 9.5 percent


The reality is the economy lost 131,000. There was no overall job growth whatsoever.

I understand that the media is carrying President Obama's and the Democrats' water for them.

But seriously, do they really think they are fooling anybody with half a brain?

Congressman Sensenbrenner and Ryan endorse Scott Walker

Wow- this is huge.

Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker secured the endorsements Wednesday of two congressmen in his bid for the Republican nomination for governor.

U.S. Reps. Paul Ryan of Janesville and F. James Sensenbrenner Jr. of Menomonee Falls said they were backing Walker in a statement released by Walker's campaign.

Walker faces former U.S. Rep. Mark Neumann in the Sept. 14 Republican primary. The major Democrat in the race is Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.

Mongrel people?

Oh my! Can you imagine if Rush Limbaugh said this about African Americans?

"We are sort of a mongrel people."


Instead, our President said this about African Americans.

Typical media reaction. They defend the President:

The president did not appear to be making an inflammatory remark with his statement. The definition of mongrel as an adjective is defined as "of mixed breed, nature, or origin," according to dictionary.com.


Of course, the media did not bother to give the entire dictionary.com definition:

of mixed breed, nature, or origin; of or like a mongrel.


Like a mongrel?

Let's define mongrel, shall we?

Princeton

bastard: derogatory term for a variation that is not genuine; something irregular or inferior or of dubious origin; "the architecture was a kind of bastard suggesting Gothic but not true Gothic"

The Obama administration tells us that whether we want it or not, whether we need it or not, whether we can afford it or not... Wisconsin is getting high speed rail!

Well, why not? This is not the first thing rammed down our throats by the Obama and Doyle administrations.(see ObamaCare)

U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and Gov. Jim Doyle on Thursday portrayed a planned Milwaukee-to-Madison high-speed rail line as an unstoppable train that Republican gubernatorial candidates can't derail.

"High-speed rail is coming to Wisconsin," LaHood said. "There's no stopping it."


Oh really???

Hmmm!

BTW... Isn't Mayor Barrett just Governor Doyle Jr. with hair?

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, the leading Democrat in the governor's race, backs high-speed rail.


Good grief, Mayor Barrett, grow a spine and stand on your own two feet!

Congressman Paul Ryan, President?

Great article about Congressman Paul Ryan. This article really gives some personal insight into the issues and events that shaped the Congressman into the man we know and love today.


Sample snips:


And yet there is Paul Ryan, on a CNBC panel out-nerding all the high-paid TV financial analysts. And there is Paul Ryan on the Sunday network talk shows explaining how America is in the midst of a slow-motion federal entitlement catastrophe. And there is Paul Ryan dismantling the health care bill at President Obama’s sham “summit,” while the president glares at him as if Ryan just told the Obama kids there’s no tooth fairy.


So when cameras turned to Ryan, he began systematically dismantling the Democrats’ rosy cost estimates. He pointed out that much of the cost was hidden, as it raised taxes for ten years to pay for six years’ worth of spending. He exposed the fact that the $371 billion “doc fix” (a plan to reimburse doctors more through Medicare) had been separated from the bill and considered as standalone legislation to keep the price tag down. “Hiding spending does not reduce spending,” he said.

As Ryan spoke, the cameras would occasionally make their way back to President Obama, who was glaring icily at Ryan.

Mr. President...You lie!

Mr. President, you said that the insurance mandate demanding Americans buy insurance was not a tax.

In fact, Mr. President, you had this to say exactly:

When Mr. Stephanopoulos said the penalty appeared to fit the dictionary definition of a tax, Mr. Obama replied, “I absolutely reject that notion.”


Now that ObamaCare is being challenged in court, suddenly the insurance mandate is a tax.

When the NYT is reacting and calling the President out on this, you know that the liberals have a problem.

The Weekly Standard/Congressman Paul Ryan

Nice article from Fred Barnes at the Weekly Standard on Congressman Ryan's roadmap for America:

For Republicans, the Road Map authored by congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin is the most important proposal in domestic policy since Ronald Reagan embraced supply side economics in the 1980 presidential campaign. It’s not only the freshest, boldest, and most comprehensive Republican thinking, it’s also the most relevant. If Republicans adopt the Road Map as their basic ideological blueprint, it offers them the prospect of a landslide in the midterm election this year, followed by victory in the presidential election in 2012.

More polling numbers on Governor's race

According to PPP, Scott Walker's popularity has gone up as Tom Barrett's has gone down:

Walker 45%
Barrett 38%

Recent advertising in the race has had a clear impact on voter perceptions of the candidates, with Walker seeing an increase in his favorability while Barrett's negatives have climbed. When we polled the state in March 31% of voters had a favorable opinion of Walker while 27% viewed him unfavorably. His positive number has increased five points to 36% since then while his negative has gone up only a point to 28% for a +8 overall spread. Barrett's numbers have gone in the other direction. The number of voters seeing him in a positive light is basically unchanged, going from 29% to 28%. But his negatives have risen eight points from 22% to 30%, and his favorability is now a -2 spread.

Lt. Governor Candidates races

Just in case you have missed it. Lt. Gov. candidate Ben Collins has suspended his campaign for Lt. Gov.

Also, candidate for Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch has turned in her signatures to get her name on the ballot. First candidate to get this done early.

Attention Walker campaign: You are not supposed to do that!

In the world of politics, politicians and their campaigns are supposed to be slimy and unethical, not truthful.

It seems the Walker campaign has been just a little too honest when it comes to politics these days.

Instead of lying, covering up, hiding, or spinning the truth, the Walker campaign chose to turn themselves and their campaign into the Government Accountability Board.

It appears that some knothead decided that he would illegally donate to the Walker campaign and dragged a few of his friends into donating to the Walker campaign also.

As soon as the Walker campaign found out about it, they took the unusual step of turning themselves in:

Keith Gilkes, Walker's campaign manager, said one of Gardner's attorneys alerted the campaign Tuesday about the reimbursements and informed Walker's staff that Gardner would report himself to state regulators.

Walker's campaign separately alerted the board to the situation and reimbursed Gardner and seven other railroad company employees a combined $43,800.


Walker's campaign alerted the GAB??? You are not supposed to do that! In our political slimy world; campaigns normally hide these transgressions!

Speaking of political slimy world, what is up with returning the illegal campaign donations????

As we have learned from our illustrious governor, "Diamond" Jim Doyle, there is no need to return illegal campaign contributions.

Once again, Walker campaign... You are not supposed to do that!

The situation prompted Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker to return $43,800 in donations on Wednesday.


Attention Walker campaign: You are really really not supposed to do this!

Gilkes disclosed the matter to the Journal Sentinel, saying the campaign wanted to be forthright about what happened.


What?!!!! The Walker campaign contacted the media and told them about this and gave them the headline????!!! Holy cow!

Here in Wisconsin we have become used to slimy unethical politicians, giving all politicians a bad name. Now this?

Careful now Scott Walker....You are right on the verge of giving politicians a good name with your honesty and integrity!

Scott Walker on Arizona Immigration Law

Friends of Scott Walker – Post Office Box 100828 – Wauwatosa, WI 53210
Paid for by Friends of Scott Walker, John Hiller, Treasurer

Below please find a statement by Scott Walker provided by the campaign:
“I sympathize with the people of Arizona who are victimized by violence, crime and property damage as a result of illegal immigration. After speaking this morning with the sponsor of the new law in Arizona, State Senator Russell Pearce, I’m satisfied that the amended bill provides adequate protections against racial profiling and discrimination. A police officer may only inquire about the immigration status of persons they have stopped, detained, or arrested for other
reasons.

In addition, earlier decisions by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals satisfy my concern about any conflicts with the 10th Amendment. If I were Governor of Arizona, I too would sign the Arizona immigration bill.

As Governor of Wisconsin, I will sign legislation that strengthens our protection against illegal immigration and ensures that taxpayer funded benefits like Badger Care and drivers licenses are not available to those who are here illegally.”

Great speech, Mr. President

This past weekend, our President gave a speech to some graduates:

The… way to keep our democracy healthy is to maintain a basic level of civility in our public debate…. we cannot expect to solve our problems if all we do is tear each other down. You can disagree with a certain policy without demonizing the person who espouses it. You can question someone’s views and their judgment without questioning their motives or their patriotism. Throwing around phrases like “socialist” and “Soviet-style takeover;” “fascist” and “right-wing nut” may grab headlines, but it also has the effect of comparing our government, or our political opponents, to authoritarian, and even murderous regimes.

Great speech, Mr. President. Too bad is was all a farce. This comes from a man who just called us all "teabaggers" today.

Okay, now it is time to say something

I have kept pretty silent for well over a week now about the Obama administration's response to the oil spill. I know there were several conservatives that began trashing on the administration about a week after the incident. (For example, Rush Limbaugh)

But after seeing the media disgraceful reaction after Katrina and the immediate blaming of President Bush, I did not want to get caught up in jumping to conclusions and pointing fingers. Simply, I wanted to be fair to the Obama administration.

Well, it is now obvious, the federal government did indeed drop the ball on this.

There was a plan in place by the federal government since 1994 that could have contained a great deal of the oil coming out of the pipes. The plan was not only not implemented, but the equipment required for the cleanup was not in place, and their access to the equipment in very limited.

If U.S. officials had followed up on a 1994 response plan for a major Gulf oil spill, it is possible that the spill could have been kept under control and far from land.

The problem: The federal government did not have a single fire boom on hand.

The "In-Situ Burn" plan produced by federal agencies in 1994 calls for responding to a major oil spill in the Gulf with the immediate use of fire booms.

But in order to conduct a successful test burn eight days after the Deepwater Horizon well began releasing massive amounts of oil into the Gulf, officials had to purchase one from a company in Illinois.

When federal officials called, Elastec/American Marine, shipped the only boom it had in stock, Jeff Bohleber, chief financial officer for Elastec, said today.
What is even more disgusting is the lack of attention the media has given to the federal response. I understand they are Obama lovers, but when does the fawnfest stop and real journalism begin?

I also understand that the Obama administration wants to abdicate their responsibilities and point the finger straight at BP. The Obama lovin' media is playing right along. However, the information is finally leaking its way to the surface. Unlike the oil that is gushing to the surface, the media's response to this incident is even slower than the Obama administration's response.

95%?

Gouguet speculated that burning could have captured 95 percent of the oil as it spilled from the well.
Now we are in a position to scramble to borrow equipment from other countries.

Aw shucks! Illegal immigrants so angry about AZ law, they plan on leaving?

Seriously, some of the dumbest headlines have come out since the illegal immigration debate has fired up.

Check this one out:

Illegal Immigrants plan to leave over Ariz. law


PHOENIX – Many of the cars that once stopped in the Home Depot parking lot to pick up day laborers to hang drywall or do landscaping now just drive on by.

Arizona's sweeping immigration bill allows police to arrest illegal immigrant day laborers seeking work on the street or anyone trying to hire them. It won't take effect until summer but it is already having an effect on the state's underground economy.

Oops! The new law is affecting "the state's underground economy"?

You mean the illegal "underground economy?

I am pretty certain that many Americans would be happy to hang some drywall for a paycheck. I have my tool belt ready...will travel!


If this were President Bush, just imagine...

I swear it is time to start a series called "If this were President Bush, just imagine..."

It is a series that will focus on the decisions President Obama makes and the reaction from the media compared to the reaction to President Bush making the same sort of decision.

Just imagine for a moment the explosion from the MSM if Bush had decided to do this:

President Barack Obama has denied aid to individuals affected by March’s massive storms and Gov. M. Jodi Rell said she plans to file a formal appeal.


Denying care to individuals?

Hmmm. Imagine the explosion from main stream media if this were President Bush????

Kinda interesting that President Obama has no problem standing up for illegal immigrants, but won't stand up for Connecticut residents.

Does he need the GOP?

I found it rather amazing that Dick Leinenkugel managed to find his way to Kenosha yesterday, and managed to contact the media and let them know he was coming. Amazingly, he never contacted anyone in the local county party. Even the state party chairman, who lives in Kenosha County, was unaware he was coming. This would have been a great opportunity for Mr. Leinenkugel to plant some seeds in the Kenosha County GOP.

I will be honest here. Many local GOP folks get a little resentful when you show up in our county; talk about Republican politics and you never bother to actually contact any actual Republicans in the area.

I guess Mr. Leinenkugel plans on running and winning without any help or support from the local GOP groups.

Best of luck with that, Mr. Leinenkugel.

We must stop these bills

There were three bills that must be stopped at the state level before they can cause major damage to our state.

The RTA bill

The Clean Energy Bill (Global Warming Job killing bill)

The Voter Registration bill


I do not want to get too excited yet, but it appears that all three bills are dead.

According to Senator Russ Decker, none of the three bill have made in on the schedule to be voted on and most likely will not be on the schedule before midnight.

None of the bills is on the Senate agenda for Thursday, the last day of the legislative session.

"I would say that any Senate bill that's not scheduled . . . is not going to have a chance to get through both houses," Decker said Wednesday.

Goldman Sachs: President Obama's Enron

Remember Enron?

Of course you do. Lefties railed for years about President Bush's connections to the ethically challenged Enron.

Amazingly, we are not hearing the lefties rail against President Obama and his deep and close ties to ethically challenged Goldman Sachs.

So far, I have only found one major news outlet willing to even discuss the issue:

Politico

The Washington Examiner points out that the Goldman Sachs boon is Enron on steroids. The money donated to President Bush by Enron is a pittance compared to the millions of dollars donated to President Obama and the Democrats.

Michelle Malkin shows the deep connections between current Obama employees and former Goldman Sachs employees.

The ties between Goldman Sachs and President Obama run very deep.

It should be interesting to see if our media will openly and honestly report the ties between President Obama/Democrats and Goldman Sachs.

Do they need his vote that bad?

You would think this was a no brainer. You have a three time convicted OWI state assemblyman, with more charges pending, you should remove him from office. Not our democrat controlled state legislature!

On Monday, Rep. Jeff Wood, was convicted of his third OWI offense and sentenced to 45 days in jail and charged a $1600 fine.

On Tuesday, the state assembly, decided not to remove him from office.

I understand that voting is tight for some of the extreme bills that the democrats want to pass, but is it that close?

Hello, Democrats! You control everything in this state! Do you really need his vote this bad?

How pathetic!

Goldman Sachs political ties

As Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is busy grilling Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on a meeting he had with big wig Wall Street folks, more and more questions have been asked on exactly how deep and incestuous the relationship is between Wall Street and Washington.

I do not believe there is any doubt that the ties between Wall Street and Washington run deep. It has been this way for years.

What may come as a surprise to many is that it is not necessarily Republicans that have benefited most from Wall Street, Democrats ties run deep with their connections to Wall Street. Democrats have been selling the theory for years that they stand for the little guy in middle America; the evil Republicans stand for big business, big oil and big banks.

This is just not true.

Check out this:

President Obama rolls out a big new bill that will come down hard on Wall Street.

The following day, the SEC announces that they are going after Goldman Sachs.

(Amazing timing, don't you think?)

Since then, many have dug deep into Goldman Sachs ties to Washington.

Who is the #1 financial beneficiary from Goldman Sachs employee contributions?

You guessed right...President Barack Obama. In fact, no other candidate benefited as greatly as Obama did from Goldman Sachs employees in 2008. As Americans are busy bailing out the credit markets in 2008, candidate Obama raked in almost a million dollars from Goldman Sachs employees. $996,595!

No other candidate in American history has received more money from Wall Street folks than President Barack Obama.

Check out the chart on this page. Notice all of these bailout recipients... Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, JP Morgan, and Morgan Stanley.

Don't get me wrong, there is nothing illegal about this practice. However, the continuous lie pushed by the Democrats is that Republicans are in the hip pockets of Wall Street.

This is all crap!

In fact, Goldman Sachs employees have spent millions more dollars over the years to get Democrats elected than Republicans. See the chart for yourself.

Thank you, Mr. President?

I cannot believe Tea Party participants are so ungrateful. You see, we should be thanking the President.

IBD

Rather than protesting the greatest expansion of government in U.S. history, Tea Party attendees should be thanking Big Government for all it's done. At least, that's what President Obama thinks.

As the Associated Press reported Thursday, the president said he was "amused" by the Tea Party faithful gathering in cities across America to protest soaring government spending, ballooning debt and the explosion in taxes that will be needed to pay for it all.

"You would think they'd be saying thank you," he said.

And why should they be thankful? As the president himself said on his weekly radio address a week ago, "one thing we have not done is raise income taxes on families making less than $250,000; that's another promise we kept."

In fact, that wasn't his promise at all.

Here's what candidate Obama really said in September of 2008: "Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes."

Got that? "Not any of your taxes." The claim of no tax hikes on those below $250,000 as a result of the current administration's policies is completely and utterly false.

A report from the House Ways & Means Committee's GOP members notes that, since January 2009, Congress and the president have enacted $670 billion in tax increases. That's $2,100 for each person in America. At least 14 of those tax hikes, the report says, break Obama's pledge not to raise taxes on those earning less than $250,000. Roughly $316 billion of the tax hikes — 14 increases in all — hit middle-class families, the report says.

Support Michael Gableman

Anyone else sick of it?

For about two years, the liberals in this state have been in complete hysterics trying to get Justice Michael Gableman removed from office. For two years, everyone has been trying to get the liberals to move on. Now it appears again that the liberals have failed and will continue to fail to get Gableman removed.

The theory the liberals are pushing is that Gableman lied when he was running for office:

Gableman's ad ran in March 2008, as he conducted his campaign to defeat then-Justice Louis Butler Jr. It discussed the case of Reuben Lee Mitchell, a child sex offender whose case Butler worked on when he was a public defender.

"Butler found a loophole. Mitchell went on to molest another child. Can Wisconsin families feel safe with Louis Butler on the Supreme Court?" the ad said.

But it did not tell viewers Butler was unsuccessful in getting Mitchell out of prison and that Mitchell served his sentence before committing the subsequent crime.


A couple of points...

1. Justice Butler has been called "Loophole Louie" long before Justice Gableman ran for office. This election was about a lot more than one single ad.

2. Justice Gableman was duly elected to office, whether the liberals like it or not. To have him removed from office will infuriate the electorate.

Time for the liberals to grow up and move on.

Romney vs. ObamaCare

I was reading an article today about the next choice conservatives will have to make. Either Republicans continue to support Mitt Romney and support ObamaCare or Republicans will have to dump Mitt Romney and work to repeal ObamaCare.

Uhhh...

That is a no brainer- dump Mitt Romney. I have said for months that if ObamaCare passes, Mitt Romney was done. Well, Mitt is done.

But win or lose, Romney would not be able to credibly campaign against the national health care law. And as a result, were he the Republican nominee, it would kill the movement to repeal ObamaCare.

A simple explanation of Obama's nuclear policy

Americans are smart. President Obama's nuclear policy is a complete joke and the American people have already figured it out.

You do not have to be a genius to figure out that President Obama is negotiating a nuclear deal with himself and himself only. No other nations involved.

The whole point of the "deal" signed by President Obama was for Iran, North Korea and others to give up their pursuit of nuclear arms. Normally during negotiations, one side gives up something, and the other side gives up something. That has not happened here.

President Obama has promised that America will not retaliate for a biological or chemical weapons attack against the US with a nuclear warhead. Iran, North Korea and the others gave up nothing. They still plan on pursuing whatever it is they feel like pursuing.

In fact, Iran's leader is opening mocking the President.

Just to add insult to President Obama's injury, Russia gladly signed an agreement yesterday, stating that they may or may not decide to help us with sanctions on Iran to force the Iranians to give up nuclear weapons.

Simply put...I own a car that you want to buy. You give me money for the car, but I do not give you the car. So you go to your friend and ask him to help you get the car from me. Your friends says "uh, maybe I will help". You then go to collect the car you just purchased from me and I still refuse to give it to you. You turn around for your friend's help to collect and amazingly, he is not there.

This is where we currently stand right now with this pathetically stupid deal just signed by the President.

In order to stop Iran's weapons pursuit, President Obama gave up part of America's safety with no concession from our enemies and Russia may or may not back us up.

Sarah Palin is right. President Obama is standing on the playground with all of his enemies surrounding him asking them to punch him and he promises not to retaliate. This is a good foreign policy decision?

Where are the rest of the Democrats on this? Amazingly, most of them are silent. Where is Reid, Pelosi, Schumer, Rockefeller, etc...? Where are these guys to back the President up?

Drill, baby, drill?

Drill, baby, drill?

Um, huh?

The president, joined by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, also was set to announce that proposed leases in Alaska's Bristol Bay would be canceled. The Interior Department also planned to reverse last year's decision to open up parts of the Chukchi and Beaufort seas. Instead, scientists would study the sites to see if they're suitable to future leases.


It appears to me, that the President is shutting down drilling where we know there is oil.

Oh I get it, Obama is going to ask for more exploration, not really drilling.

The Obama administration will propose allowing offshore oil and natural-gas exploration and development in a large swath of the eastern Gulf of Mexico, after months of criticism from Republicans who have made expanded offshore drilling a political rallying cry.

In addition, the administration plans to announce new steps to determine how much oil and natural gas is buried off the coasts of Middle and Southern Atlantic states, where oil-reserve estimates are decades out of date.


Okay, here is the truth.

Obama was set to announce the new drilling policy Wednesday at Andrews air base in Maryland. White House officials pitched the changes as ways to reduce U.S. reliance on foreign oil and create jobs - both politically popular ideas - but the president's decisions also could help secure support for a climate change bill languishing in Congress.

Remember when Doyle raided the Physicians' Fund? Guess what?

In order to balance his 2007 budget, Governor Doyle raided $200 million out of the Physicians' Fund. This fund was managed by the state, but not one dime of that money belonged to the state. Governor Doyle took the money anyway.

This was not a state fund. Doctors take money out of their own pockets and place money into this fund just in case their medical malpractice insurance does not cover the balance of the medical malpractice law suits. The money in the fund actually belongs to the doctors who deposited it. Doyle took $200 million.

As a result of the raid, the fund balance is -$109 million. The fund is not only dry but is now running a negative balance.

Just to add insult to the already injured doctors, Doyle's latest budget pads the paychecks of his buddies, the trial lawyers. Governor Doyle's latest budget removed the caps for medical malpractice lawsuit.

Now which Republicans voted for that 2007 budget, when we controlled the Assembly???

Found it:

Republicans voting yes (23): Ballweg; Davis; J. Fitzgerald; Friske; Hahn; Hines; Huebsch; Meyer; Moulton; Mursau; Murtha; Musser; Nerison; Ott, A.; Petersen; Petrowski; Rhoades; Suder; Tauchen; Townsend; Van Roy; Williams, M.; Wood


Both of the Republicans in Kenosha County voted no in 2007: Kerkman and Lothian

Hum? I actually agree with the President on this one

It is not too often these days I agree with anything President Obama says. Today I found something.

In another fawning interview on NBC, the President said "I mean, a lot of commentators have said, you know, this is sort of similar to the bill that Mitt Romney passed in Massachusetts."

Indeed, Mr. President, RomneyCare and ObamaCare are very much alike. Government mandates, massive price tag, increasing price tags, rationing and such.

Mitt Romney has been given a pass for years on his RomneyCare bill from Republicans. Now, suddenly, Republicans are forced to face the fact that large portions of ObamaCare that they do not like was actually implemented several years ago in RomneyCare.

Mitt Romney was called out by the DNC in 2008, now the Republicans are calling him out. It is about time!

Who let 5 year olds be Congressmen?

I don't care if you are a Republican, Democrat or an Independent...Nobody can look at this video and think this Congressman is being honest or up front on the issue.



Most Americans, who have been following the health care debate, can tell you exactly who will be the ObamaCare enforcers.

The behavior of this Congressman is no different than the behavior of a petulant 5 year old.

For a hero...

Tomorrow, Kenosha will have its first chance to pay its respects to Army Specialist Robert Rieckhoff, killed in Iraq last week.

Specialist Rieckhoff will be laid to rest in Kenosha. He is returning home tomorrow at about 1pm.

Feel free to line up on the travel route with flags or signs of respect, as his body travels to Piasecki's on 39th Ave. The route is east down Hwy 158 (52nd Street) to Green Bay road. North on Green Bay Road to Washington Road. East on Washington Road to 39th Ave. North on 39th.

ObamaCare: Bad for business

Not just bad for business in a few years, but bad for business this year. I wonder how many jobs will be lost because of this?

Caterpillar has announced that ObamaCare will cost them an extra $100 million this year alone. Who will actually get ObamaCare health care coverage? Nobody.

Now Deere is announcing that they will cost them $125 milion:

(Reuters) - Farm equipment maker Deere & Co (DE.N) expects after-tax expenses to rise by $150 million this year as a result of the healthcare reform law President Barack Obama signed this week.

Democrats: it will take 4 years to "control the people"

Perhaps now the Democrats need to stop talking about health care. They continue to say obnoxious things that will come back to haunt them.

Representative Dingell : "The harsh fact of the matter is when you're going to pass legislation that will cover 300 [million] American people in different ways it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people."

I guess Nancy Pelosi was right?

I guess Pelosi was right, they did have to pass the bill to find out what was in it. Turns out, because no one bothered to read the bill before they passed it, they screwed up big time. Of course, this screwup makes President Obama look like a liar.

Here is a thought, perhaps we should read bills before voting on them.

AP

Hours after President Barack Obama signed historic health care legislation, a potential problem emerged. Administration officials are now scrambling to fix a gap in highly touted benefits for children.

Obama made better coverage for children a centerpiece of his health care remake, but it turns out the letter of the law provided a less-than-complete guarantee that kids with health problems would not be shut out of coverage.

Under the new law, insurance companies still would be able to refuse new coverage to children because of a pre-existing medical problem, said Karen Lightfoot, spokeswoman for the House Energy and Commerce Committee, one of the main congressional panels that wrote the bill Obama signed into law Tuesday.

Al Sharpton: "Americans Overwhelmingly Voted for Socialism when they elected President Obama"

I have spent the last several weeks arguing with some local Democrats about this health care overhaul. I would ask "why are you doing this in face of massive public opposition?" and "Why are doing this in complete defiance of the "consent of the governed?".

I would get the same answer over and over again. "The governed gave their consent in November 2008". "Obama and the Democrats had a mandate".

Now we have Al Sharpton declaring that "Americans overwhelmingly voted for socialism when they elected President Obama".



Seriously, Americans voted to become a socialist nation when they voted for Obama?

That is not how I remember it. When anyone would accuse candidate Obama of being a socialist, the media and Obama campaign would fly into hysteria defending candidate Obama.

The attempt to personally destroy the life of Joe the Plumber was perfect proof of this. Hysterical Democrats and the media launched into his personal life and set out to destroy his career.

Americans did not vote for socialism, they want health care reform. Americans still want health care reform that will drive down the cost of health care. ObamaCare will increase the cost of premiums that Americans are currently paying, not lower them.

This video is quite interesting. These idiots are flailing. Three of them were ganging up on Congressman Ryan and they still could not get their facts straight.

The Chairwoman insisted on talking about a different Republican bill and refused to speak of their own bill they are trying to pass. The Chairwoman finally started babbling about vouchers and that mentally ill seniors will be forced to decide what kind of health care they want. Note to the Chairwoman: not every single senior turns senile the day they turn 65. That is offensive. In fact, the Chairwoman herself is in her late 70's and she currently is given a taxpayer funded voucher to go out and purchase the best health care plan for herself and her family. Why is okay of her to do but not the rest of America?

The Chairwoman went so far as to call on another Congressman sitting right next Paul Ryan to describe what was in the Paul Ryan plan. She said "Tell us what they are".

I find it truly amazing that of the 4 House Reps speaking, 2 of them are over the age of 65 and are not living off of Medicare. Instead these two Reps are living off of taxpayer funded plan where they get to chose their own coverage. Congressman Ryan is proposing that every single American should be afforded the same opportunity these members of Congress(over the age of 65) are currently getting. The Dems do not like it.



To hear this debate at a Rules Committee meeting goes to show one thing only...The Democrats do not want to talk about their own plan. The whole point to the committee meeting was to discuss the rules for the Dems to vote on their own plan.

Oh look a new CBO estimate is out today. Dems healthcare will create a deficit

At the request of Congressman Paul Ryan, the CBO has a new (more honest) evaluation of the Dems health care bill. For months, the Democrats have avoided adding the "doc fix" into their bill. The reason the Dems continue to avoid adding the doc fix to the health care bill is because the costs are very high. If the Democrats do not pass the doc fix almost immediately, doctors performing Medicare services will get a 20% pay cut. That pay cut would cause doctors nationwide to dump Medicare patients. Obviously this cannot be allowed to happen. It would devastate the Medicare system sending many seniors into a panic.

The temporary doc fix bill expires in a couple of weeks. Even if the Dems manage to pass the legislation this weekend without the doc fix included, they will immediately have to deal with the doc fix or send Medicare into a tail spin.

That being said, adding the doc fix to the CBO where it should be and will probably end up in the next few weeks, changes everything. The health care bill actually loses money.

When even the San Francisco Chronicle, Speaker Pelosi's hometown newspaper, recognizes this budget gimmick, there is a problem.

Beyond these disputes, several budget gimmicks are used to hold down costs during the 10-year window: The bill starts revenue increases immediately but postpones major spending for four years; a $370 billion "doc fix" to increase Medicare payments to doctors was removed from the bill.


Today, the new CBO estimate, which includes the doc fix shows that in the first 10 years alone, the bill loses $59 billion.

You asked about the total budgetary impact of enacting the reconciliation
proposal (the amendment to H.R. 4872), the Senate-passed health bill
(H.R. 3590), and the Medicare Physicians Payment Reform Act of 2009
(H.R. 3961). CBO estimates that enacting all three pieces of legislation would add
$59 billion to budget deficits over the 2010–2019 period.
Under current law, Medicare’s payment rates for physicians’ services will be
reduced by about 21 percent in April 2010 and by an average of about 2 percent
per year for the rest of the decade.2


Of course, this is all information that the liberals will ignore on Sunday when they cast there vote.

Unfortunately, this means that every single liberal voting for this will have to spend the time between now and the election in November explaining to the American people why they purposefully mislead them.

If this passes, even President Obama will be running his next election on health care reform. He too will be stuck trying to explain why it is he defied the will of the people, slapped the American people in the face and chose to do what he wanted to anyway.

On Monday morning, if this passes on Sunday, the American people start taking their government to task and start figuring out ways to repeal this government control of our lives.

Right now, Washington is being inundated with over 100,000 phone calls an hour. That only gets worse on Monday.

The New New CBO Math

Okay, now this is confusing.

In 2009, the Senate healthcare bill CBO cost estimate was $871 billion and supposedly cut the deficit by $132 billion.

Today, the Senate bill combined with Pelosi's "fixes" costs even more, $940 billion and supposedly reduces the deficit by $138 billion.

???? We are spending billions more and also saving more at the same time?

How is that possible unless there are a mess of tax increases in the "fix" bill?

Apparently this is the new new math that we are teaching our children. Spend billions more and reduce the deficit!!!!

Health Care reform is secondary to Obama's legacy

Finally the Democrats are admitting it. The American people be damned, legislators are not really voting for health care reform, they are voting for President Obama again.

There are some Democrats that are finally admitting that they are voting for the health care bill in order to save Obama's presidency. The will of the people be damned, the Democrats must save President Obama.

Politico

One caucus member told POLITICO that Obama won him over by “essentially [saying] that the fate of his presidency” hinged on this week’s health reform vote in the House. The member, who requested anonymity, likened Obama’s remarks to an earlier meeting with progressives when the president said a victory was necessary to keep him “strong” for the next three years of his term.

Another caucus member, Rep. Jose Serrano (D-N.Y.), said, “We went in there already knowing his presidency would be weakened if this thing went down, but the president clearly reinforced the impression the presidency would be damaged by a loss.”

Added Serrano: “He was subtle, but that was the underlying theme of the meeting — the importance of passing this for the health of the presidency.”


Democrats were very excited yesterday over Rep. Dennis Kucinich flip flop to a "yes" vote. The Congressman made it pretty clear why he switched his vote, he did it to save the Obama presidency.

"You do have to be very careful that the potential of President Obama's presidency not be destroyed by this debate. Even though I have many differences with him on policy, there's something much bigger at stake here for America."


Passing a piece of legislation that the American people are defiantly against is going to "save" Obama's Presidency?

Seriously liberals, please explain the logic in that.

Democrats must think the American people are stupid

Honestly Democrats, do you think that the American people will not hold them responsible for this health care debacle if they pass it by the "deem and pass" rule?

Do the Democrats really believe that this garbage will actually provide them cover from angry constituents?

Do the Democrats really believe that this process of "deeming" a bill law without actually voting on it is okay with the American people?

These folks must think the American people are stupid. The American people are engaged in this debate. They know what is happening.

I was sitting in a restaurant yesterday afternoon. I was working on campaign stuff. Another couple were sitting there eating, but basically the rest of the place was empty. A new couple walked in and knew the first couple and the talk immediately turned to health care. The waitress jumped into the conversation also. From what I could tell, they were all disgusted with this health care mess. I could not tell if they were for or against the health care legislation but they sure were ticked about this voting mess.

Americans are not stupid. They are fully engaged. They do not want this garbage coming out of Congress. When do the Democrats decide to start listening to us?

"Lifting America's spirit"

Yesterday, as I am reading an article by Peggy Noonan, my mind traveled to the palm of Governor Sarah Palin's hand.

Peggy Noonan
writes:

And now here are two growing problems for Mr. Obama.

The first hasn’t become apparent yet, but I suspect will be presenting itself, and soon. In order to sharpen the air of crisis he seems to think he needed to get his health-care legislation passed, in order to continue the air of crisis that might justify expanding government and sustaining its costs, and in order, always, to remind voters of George W. Bush, Mr. Obama has harped on what a horror the economy is. How great our challenges, how wicked our businessmen, how dim our future.

This is a delicate business. You can’t be all rosy glow, you have to be candid. But attitude and mood matter. America has reached the point, a year and a half into the crisis, when frankly it needs some cheerleading. It can’t always be mourning in America. We need some inspiration from the top, need someone who can speak with authority of what is working and can be made to work, of what is good and cause for pride. We are still employing 130 million people, and America is still competitive in the world, with innovative business leaders and practices.

The president can’t be a hope purveyor while he’s a doom merchant, and he appears to believe he has to be a doom merchant to justify ramming through his legislation. This particular legislation is not worth that particular price.


Peggy Noonan is right, our country is depressed right now. Basically, Americans do not see a bright future and it is really beginning to show.

Ms. Noonan, no fan of Governor Palin, may not admit it, but clearly Governor Palin has recognized this as a problem.

Obviously, much has been written about the highlights written on Governor Palin's hand during her Tea Party Convention speech. As mentioned in Governor Palin's speech last night, at the Ohio RTL event, no one wants to talk about the substance that was written on her hand, just the fact that she wrote on her hand.

One of those highlights was "lift America spirits".

Our nation is in serious trouble right now. Americans cannot see a path forward out of this economic mess.

The truth is, not a single politician, not even the President of the United States can lift this country out of its fiscal crisis. No political party or protests can move this country forward either.

Regular ol' everyday Americans will be the ones to lift this country up. We need to see the "shining city on a hill". We may not be on top of that hill, but we need to be able to see the hill and start marching up the hillside.

Governor Palin was right about lifting America's spirit. As a nation, we have been here before and dug our way out. Our parents, grandparents and great great grandparents have all faced the same obstacles we are facing today.

America's spirit, determination, dignity, innovation and ingenuity dug us out of the hole and we can do it again. This is what Governor Palin spoke about that night at the convention and why it was highlighted on her hand. Americans need to hear that they can dig their way out and they need their leaders to simply point them in that direction and encourage them to keep moving.

America needs leadership. America needs hope.

I am not talking about false hope and cheerleading like we saw from Harry Reid and the President yesterday. 36,000 Americans losing their jobs is nothing to cheer about. Americans did not need this from its top leaders. We are not stupid, for heaven's sake.

What Americans did not need was the leader of the free world, traveling from country to country apologizing for Americans. We did not need our President running around the country claiming the best health care system in the world is broken. We did not need our President slamming corporate America, the very folks we need to create jobs. We have enough problems just trying to pay our bills from month to month, Americans do not need one more crisis.

Americans need a better environment and politicians can help create a good business environment. Politicians can encourage tax cuts for those Americans driving innovation and new technologies. American ingenuity is being squelched because it is massively over regulated. Get off our backs!

Politicians can create a positive environment for our businesses to grow and succeed. Americans need to know that their businesses will not be hammered by local, state and federal regulations and taxation. Success should not be punished and regulated into failure.

Governor Palin is right that it is time to lift America's spirit. Americans can dig their way out if they can simply get the government back on their side. No more tax increases. No more government strangling regulations on our businesses. No more apologizing to this nation's enemies.

Our President is worried about the success of his presidency and is so busy trying to prove that his stimulus worked, he has ignored the American people. The President needs to worry less about his own success and start worrying about the success of the American people. Presidents only succeed when the American people succeed.

I am proud to be an American. Americans should never apologize for being Americans. Even more, we should never apologize or be punished for being successful Americans.

Thank you Governor Palin for seeing the "shining city on a hill" and pointing Americans in that direction. We need a little more of this from the rest of America's politicians.

We can do this America. We can dig our way out, but we need to get this nation's leaders to back off and let us do it.

Okay, Democrats...Are you willing to give up your jobs?

There is a false assumption out in the media right now that the President plans on scaling back the Health Care bill and use Republican ideas.

It is all garbage. The only bill the President is backing is the Senate bill. That has not changed. There is no new bill.

All the President is doing is suggesting to Democrats that they accept some Republican ideas. Also, the idea that the backroom deals are gone, is also a crock. Unless Congress removes them, they are not gone.

President Obama has not written a new bill, nor will he write a bill. This would start the entire health care process over again.

Don't be fooled by the media or the Democrats.

Nothing has changed, they just want to give the impression that something has changed.

Tuesday, March 02, 2010

Vote already!

Nancy Pelosi continues to state that she has the votes necessary to pass the health care bill.

The White House stated on Sunday that they have the votes to pass the massive health care bill.

So why then, is the White House now sending out another proposal that is supposed to be half the costs of the current bills?

If the Democrats have the votes, then vote already!

How much is President Obama is drinking?

I had not really thought of it before, but apparently, President Obama's doctors are recommending:

The doctors also recommended "moderation of alcohol intake".


Hat tip:Drudge

Why would the doctors even make that recommendation, unless they thought there was a problem?

Will he or won't he run?

Am I the only person sick of the Tommy Thompson dance?

Like many others, I am sick of Tommy's ego dance. This hurts fundraising and such for the other two candidates that have their lives on hold as they run for office.

Former Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson, who served four terms as Wisconsin governor, is securing financial pledges and ramping up his outreach to longtime political aides in preparation for a possible campaign against Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold.

Thompson has alerted his Washington-based law firm of his moves and is contacting key clients about the prospect of challenging Feingold, the most tangible signals yet that he’s seriously exploring a 2010 campaign.

“The governor has taken additional steps in the past week and will continue to do so over the next several weeks. If the meetings go well, you can expect to see an exploratory committee set up near the end of March,” former state commerce secretary and Thompson campaign manager Bill McCoshen told POLITICO.

Another longtime Thompson ally said the governor already has $200,000 in potential donations for a campaign that doesn’t yet exist.

“If you talked to me two weeks ago, I would have put it at a 50-50 shot. Now it’s at 70,” said the Thompson aide, who requested anonymity to avoid offending his friend. “He’s asking serious questions like, ‘Who would run the campaign? Who would do the fundraising? When would we announce? How much could we raise?’”

Despite Thompson’s steps, political insiders in both parties in Washington and Wisconsin remain skeptical of Thompson’s commitment to challenging Feingold, a three-term incumbent.

Atta boy, Congressman!



Simple, straightforward and on point...Answers don't lie in Washington.

From everything I am hearing and everything I have seen, the Republicans are standing tall, proud and finally are fighting back.

Even some in the media are grudgingly acknowledging this fact:

CNN’s DAVID GERGEN: “The folks in the White House just must be kicking themselves right now. They thought that coming out of Baltimore when the President went in and was mesmerizing and commanding in front of the House Republicans that he could do that again here today. That would revive health care and would change the public opinion about their health care bill and they can go on to victory. Just the opposite has happened.” (CNN’s “Live,” 2/25/10)

You don't say...Democrats

He is Jimmy Carter II

Price controls?

This is the Obama healthcare plan?

Jimmy Carter tried this in the 1970's which created a massive shortage in oil and natural gas. Things got so bad that only weeks before his re-election bid, he immediately began deregulating the gas and oil industry trying to drive the price of gas down. There were fist fights at the gas pumps with people who had waited hours just to get a few gallons of gasoline.

Do we want fist fights with people desperately waiting to see a doctor?

This is the new path Obama plans on taking us down?

Do we really want to create a massive shortage in health care?

I swear, this new president looks more and more like Jimmy Carter ever day.

Congressman Paul Ryan in Newsweek

Nice article from Congressman Paul Ryan.

Imagine your family's finances if you spent and borrowed like Washington: you'd owe $60 in credit-card loans for every $100 of income. Every month you'd pay back a little but borrow even more. In 10 years, you'd owe $87 for every $100 you made. At some point you'd hand off the debt to your kids. If they worked until 2035, they'd owe more than $180 for every $100 they earned. In 2050, your grandkids would owe more than $320. By 2080 they'd owe seven times their earnings. Of course, lenders would cut them off well before then, and your family would be ruined. But this is the path your government is on right now.

Today, our country faces a fiscal meltdown—and Washington's continued cowardice is a big part of the problem. The social-insurance strategies of the 20th century—Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security—are driving our federal government and economy to collapse. It's long been obvious that we're ill prepared for the retirement of the baby boomers. Now, the recession and Washington's recent spending spree have accelerated the day of reckoning.

Who cares about Tiger?

Does anyone in the public really believe that Tiger owes them an apology?

I don't care who he sleeps with.

Bummer, Doyle's global warming bill is in trouble

My heart is almost breaking.

How come when a conservative makes the following statement, they are accused of being idiots and science deniers, but when a liberal makes the statement like this, it makes the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel?

Later, Senate Majority Leader Russ Decker (D-Weston) said, "I think the bill is going to need some retooling.

"I think the bill, as it is, obviously has got some problems, and I'm concerned about the impact that it would increase utility rates."

Hey, Obama tax increases are coming

Politico

President Barack Obama doubled-down this year on his campaign pledge to roll back the Bush-era tax cuts for the richest Americans while keeping them in place for the middle class.


What? President Bush gave tax cuts to middle class Americans?

But I thought evil Bush only gave tax cuts to the wealthy?

President Bush would have been pillared

President Bush would have been pillared if his administration was caught defending this practice...

Two years ago, when the FBI was stymied by a band of armed robbers known as the "Scarecrow Bandits" that had robbed more than 20 Texas banks, it came up with a novel method of locating the thieves.

FBI agents obtained logs from mobile phone companies corresponding to what their cellular towers had recorded at the time of a dozen different bank robberies in the Dallas area. The voluminous records showed that two phones had made calls around the time of all 12 heists, and that those phones belonged to men named Tony Hewitt and Corey Duffey. A jury eventually convicted the duo of multiple bank robbery and weapons charges.

Even though police are tapping into the locations of mobile phones thousands of times a year, the legal ground rules remain unclear, and federal privacy laws written a generation ago are ambiguous at best. On Friday, the first federal appeals court to consider the topic will hear oral arguments (PDF) in a case that could establish new standards for locating wireless devices.

In that case, the Obama administration has argued that warrantless tracking is permitted because Americans enjoy no "reasonable expectation of privacy" in their--or at least their cell phones'--whereabouts. U.S. Department of Justice lawyers say that "a customer's Fourth Amendment rights are not violated when the phone company reveals to the government its own records" that show where a mobile device placed and received calls.


Screeching and wailing would be heard on Capital Hill against President Bush from the left. Can you imagine the Bush administration stating "Americans enjoy no "reasonable expectation of privacy"?

Oh boy!

Where are you Senator Russ Feingold?

Congressman Paul Ryan rules out Presidential run in 2012

Anyone who knows the congressman pretty much knew this already. However, the Congressman also is looking towards 2012 and taking on Senator Herb Kohl.

Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan (R) said over the weekend that he will not run for president in 2012.

However, while Ryan has ruled out a national bid, he is still considering running for statewide office in two years. In an interview with RealClearPolitics last week, Ryan said he may run for Senate in 2012, when Sen. Herb Kohl (D-Wisc.) -- who just turned 75 -- will be up for re-election.

Do they realize how foolish they look?

Seriously, This is the ad that NOW was in complete hysterics over?



Pro abortion groups were coming unhinged for weeks, demanding that the ad be yanked. It was an attack on a woman's right to have an abortion they screeched! Literally millions of Americans were demanding the ad be removed.

How ridiculous do these people look today?

Good grief!

How many jobs lost or not created because of stimulus?

Billions upon billions of dollars have been pulled out of today's current private market place and tomorrow's private market place and has been placed into the government's wasteful hands. Exactly how many private jobs have not been created because of government largess?

Steve Chapman from the Chicago Tribune wants to know:

Last week's official report that the effort created 600,000 jobs certainly didn't prove anything. All the government did was count how many jobs were paid for with stimulus funds.

That ignores the obvious problem. Money the government uses to create jobs is money that can't be used by the private sector to create jobs. But no one in the White House is trying to count jobs that didn't get created as a result of this mass diversion of funds.


Since the Obama administration makes up their own numbers, I say we should be able to make up our own also. So what do you think?

Has the private sector not been able to create or save 2,000,000 jobs because the debt mounted by the Obama administration?

Did anyone notice? $787 billion stimulus

The media has been rather silent on this issue. Remember that $787 Billion stimulus bill? Yeah, it is now $862 Billion.

Another $75 Billion. You would think the media would be rejoicing at the "extra" money to create jobs. After all, the original stimulus was to create jobs.

Was the SOTU a game changer?

Obviously, last night's speech was really big as far as the future of the President's agenda.

The President needed to settle down wobbly Democrats and get them back on his agenda. The Republicans needed to stop being bashed so they can climb on board at least with the ideas they have in common. But probably more important is that the President had to reach the Independents again and get them back on board with his agenda.

So do you think that the President got Independents back on board?

Clearly the Independents have been calling the shots in elections.

Do you think that those people in Massachusetts last week are back on board with the President?

I think if people are honest they would say that the President did not get the independents back. The President made it very clear that he is forging ahead with his same agenda. Yes, he is putting jobs first, but he did that last year also. Remember the stimulus, that was first. This year, another stimulus. Will it work?

Do you think anyone in the state of Massachusetts last week would change their vote today?

Of course they would not. Don't tell that to the liberals, they are too busy being inspired.

Got your shovels ready?

You know the garbage that will be shoveled out of Washington will be thick and deep tonight, so I am just checking to make sure your shovels are ready so you can try to dig your way out.

Just call us the Dodo nation

The Tea Party Nation have been called a number of things over the last year. We have been called an angry mob, nazis, teabaggers, racists, and hate mongers. There have been more names, but it would take too long to list them all.

Well, there is a new one out there. Ever the intellectual, Joe Klein, from Time Magazine has called us dodos.

It is very difficult to thrive in an increasingly competitive world if you're a nation of dodos.


Joe Klein even calls us "too dumb to thrive". The reason Joe Klein believes you are so stupid is because of this poll that came out by CNN. 74% of Americans believe that at least half of the stimulus money has been wasted.

You see, according to Joe Klein, you are a dodo because you just do not realize how good you have got it and what President Obama has done for you:

Absolutely amazing poll results from CNN today about the $787 stimulus package: nearly three out of four Americans think the money has been wasted. On second thought, they may be right: it's been wasted on them. Indeed, the largest single item in the package--$288 billion--is tax relief for 95% of the American public. This money is that magical $60 to $80 per month you've been finding in your paycheck since last spring. Not a life changing amount, but helpful in paying the bills.


Magically millions of Americans have lost the magical paychecks because they have been laid off. Of course, millions more of Americans may not have lost the magical paycheck, but their hours have been cut at work and the magic money does not come close to touching what they have lost since the recession has started.

But hey, you are a dodo because you really do not appreciate what President Obama has done for you. How can Americans be so ungrateful for their $7 a paycheck?

Call me cynical...

The President is getting very serious about dealing with the deficit,

After the Election and after his budget is passed by the end of September


How can anyone with half a brain not recognize this as nothing more than political gamesmanship? President Obama really has to believe that you are a blithering idiot.

Trying to win the votes of fiscal moderates, President Barack Obama formally endorsed legislation Saturday creating an independent commission with the power to force Congress to vote on major deficit reduction steps this year, after the November elections.
