First, let me just say: Drill, baby, Drill. Drill, Drill, Drill…..
From the New York Times:
There are a few places, Mr. Obama noted with a smile, where he has not authorized drilling: the National Mall; the middle of Chesapeake Bay; or underneath the houses of the people in his audience. When politicians tell you, “Drill, Baby, Drill,” the president said to the crowd, answer, “We’re doing that. Tell me something new.”
The youthful audience responded with chants of “Yes, we can” and “Four more years,” though two people collapsed during Mr. Obama’s remarks. The president reminded people to eat, if they knew they were going to be standing for a long time.
From what I could tell, in Maryland yesterday, the president was largely incoherent and barely covering up his anger with what I suppose he thought was humor. And as the NYT noted: “The youthful audience responded with” cheers. He is going to younger and younger audiences I guess because they are easily led and chant appropriately, not being old enough to have a job, support a family, or probably not even to buy their own gas.
He has a script going on for these faintings. He says the same thing every time. I think he uses the faintings to detract from any sign of displeasure from the crowd. I have seen him do this before, not that I think there was any dissent among the child audience yesterday.

Obama administration wages a WAR ON CATHOLICS
But he gives permission to an Indian tribe to kill bald eagles for their religious ceremonies.
I don’t think he likes American symbols any more than he likes Christian symbols. Remember when he had Christian signs and symbols covered at Georgetown University?
Georgetown honored the White House staff’s request to cover all of the Georgetown University signage and symbols behind Gaston Hall stage,” Julie Green Bataille, associate vice president for communications at Georgetown, told CNSNews.com
And back to the War on Catholics:
Barack Obama’s controversial regulation of the health care policies offered by religious organizations, one day after Catholic leaders repeated their offer to hash out an agreement.
“The solution that was reached here … has been reached, and we firmly believe that it achieves the goals that the president set,” Carney said at Thursday’s White House press conference.
On Feb. 10 Obama announced a new regulation that forces religious groups to financially support activities they abhor, but that the government supports. In particular, the president directed religious organizations to provide insurance policies that offer free contraceptives.
But “government has no place defining religion and religious ministry,” said the Mar. 14 statement by the top-level administrative committee of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
