I wonder if they slept together after the disgusting dinner with obama.
The president is working the phones…..
Through my rage this morning, I hear some Obama representative, when asked where Obama’s plan is, say this: He is working so very hard behind the scenes — ON THE TELEPHONE. I thought I must have misunderstood her, but she repeated it, “he is working behind the scenes on the telephone.”
Not working on a budget, not working on a plan, but working the phone.
In the Obama administration, the national debt has increased 5 Trillion dollars, at least. At least. It was already at 8 Trillion, but just in two years it is now approaching 16 Trillion.
During the entire Obama administration there has been NO federal budget.
The republicans have put forth a budget. DIED in the democrat Senate.
This will be the 4th time the debt ceiling has been raised since Obama took office. All three times were under the democrat controlled Washington, almost in secret thanks to the corrupt media. I wonder how many times they were planning to raise it and just how high they were willing to go? 16 trillion? 20 trillion? 24 trillion? There is just no telling.
The republican House has already passed a plan to the Senate in the form of Cut, Cap, and Balance, bipartisan, by the way. Harry Reid and the democrats TABLED it without debate and without a vote. The media just glosses over that one.
The republicans have put out about three plans on the debt ceiling. And for what are they working so hard? All I hear is Harry Reid saying they will not pass any of them. He repeats the Boehner plan will not pass, will not pass, will not pass. He says the Boehner plan is written for the tea party not the American people? Who the hell does he think the tea party is? His insults are intolerable. He almost got his senile butt defeated by the tea party in October. The saddest thing about the entire election was he was returned to the Senate.
On top of that, Obama threatens to veto it if by chance it does pass the democrat Senate.
The democrats had it all for two years – complete control – and they ran up 5 trillion dollars in debt. They are fighting now to continue spending.
Reid does not have a bill, it’s a sham. Obama does not have a plan. There’s no Reid bill. There’s no Obama bill. They have NOTHING.
So what the are they doing? Republicans, sit down. Leave it to them to figure out. I hope the republican bill gets voted down in the House.
And if we allow the democrats and the democrat controlled media to somehow blame the republicans for a government shutdown. we are the dumbest people on the face of the earth.
Now to the republicans: The republican establishment is in power right now why? Because of the tea party. And yet we have to be called Hobbits by some jackass at the Weekly Standard, sorry, I believe it’s the Wall Street Journal. I’ll tell you who will go to the center of the earth soon and it’s not the tea party. And John McCain is a disgrace. An absolute disgrace.

The race card has run out. It has been overused, it’s worn out and frayed and has lost its power. We simply don’t care any more.
If Barack Obama and the media want to keep beating the race drum about his birth certificate, the old stand-by, as Whoopi did on the View, “no white man ever was questioned about his birth certificate” they just need to check out the history on the matter. I knew John McCain was questioned and took the matter before the Senate as to his place of birth, but there are others I did not know abou – all white, by the way.
Legal Insurraction has a good post and some of the men who were questioned about their place of birth and thus their qualifications to serve as president.
All I know is nobody spends millions of dollars to keep something hidden unless there’s something to hide.
In symbol of unity Sen. Mark Udall (D) is calling on members of Congress to all sit together for the State of the Union Address, set for January 25th.
Sit together? SIT TOGETHER?
I am going to post a video of Ed Schultz, MSNBC, with the usual “vitriol” in his voice blasting and slamming republican congressmen for statements they made on gun control laws. In another video, he is interviewing the HERO, Joe Zamudio, who took down the shooter in what in my opinion is a condescending manner. In another video he is interviewing Dennis Kucinich. trying to demean and criticize republicans in general and in specific, House Speaker Boehner. Mr. Kucinich, a democrat, even challenged him on it.
MSNBC is biased beyond belief, I don’t see that it has changed in tone or vitriol since the shooting.
But SIT TOGETHER? Should they hold hands, too? Sing little songs and play pat-a-cake together?
We’re talking about running a government here, not trying to create a situation where it is not obvious just how FEW democrats there are in the House after the shallacking in November. It is so easy to see what their motivation is.
So, I hear there are some republicans who are going along with this ridiculous suggestion. I’m going to try to find out who they are and make a list.
Well, here’s two: .Kevin McCarthy, Republican, California, and Lisa Murkowski, Republican, Alaska (no surprise there). Aaaaw, and McCarthy wants to sit next to Steny Hoyer. 1,2,3 sing: Like a bridge over troubled waters…..
More: Susan Collins, R, and Olympia Snowe, R. (What a surprise that is! sarc)
And: Kelly Ayotte, R and I believe she was endorsed by Sarah Palin.
These are all senators. There are none so far in the House to sign on.
Another one: John McCain, Republican, Arizona. (no surprise there either).
Have they gone mad? NOW the democrats and the president want us all to be civil and everybody to “get along.” They have not in any way set up an atmosphere to get along.
One thing is for sure, if you want everybody to be happy and nice and get along, you can start the conversation by saying you republicans, you tea party people, all you out there who disagree with us, you all had something to do with this murder in Tucson. That’ll promote civility and dialogue every single time. It would be funny if it were not so serious.
This is Ed Schultz on Thursday, January 13th, demeaning Mr. Zamudio, a Hero who helped hold the shooter and likely prevented more deaths:
This is the full interview below. This interview was on January 10th. So you can see what they did was cut the desired pieces to do the above video where Schultz dumped on the hero to make his point, knowing full well what he was doing. Go to about 5:20 to hear the end of the interview – the part that was CUT OFF because Mr. Zamudio gave his opinion on gun control and it did not fit Mr. Schultz’ narrative and agenda. This is a really good illustration of media malpractice and why they have no credibility whatsoever.
Here he is again “setting a good tone” blasting Palin and republicans. Even Dennis Kucinich (D) about 5:23 takes Schultz to task for his comments.
All this MSNBC stuff is long and hard to listen to, but it shows exactly what they do. It’s worth a listen for anyone who wants proof of the media bias and glaring hypocrisy.
UPDATE: Omnibus is Dead!!
With congress at a low of 13 percent, the democrats have introduced another bill with massive amount of earmarks and wasteful spending. Yesterday, John McCain speaks out against it. He says, “You vote for this, you put your political future in great peril.”
It’s always interesting to review what has been said in the past, what has been promised. When is a lie not a lie?
Below a discussion back in 2009 on Chris Matthews Hardball about the same subject, earmarks, . Nothing has changed. Notice the excuses that were made back then. What are the excuses this year??
I’ll bet you if John McCain were president today, he would not sign a bill filled with all this pork.
The only thing I can see that has changed since 2009 is an election took place in November, and the republicans took the House taking 63 seats. So let’s put a hold on this and let’s see what the new congress will do.
Posted: 12.16.10 Update: 12.16.10 @ 9:00 p.m.
Update at bottom.
I’ve been researching a little bit on the author of the Rolling Stones article on General McChrystal,
He’s clearly a left-leaning, progressive, probably democrat, person who does not care much for republicans, almost to the point of revulsion. He was assigned to several campaigns during this past election, Mike Huckabee, Rudy Giuliani, who he has a particular distaste for, John McCain, and most importantly, Hillary Clinton.
This is his own account of the campaigns he covered.
I’ll bet you anything he was feeding the Obama campaign every little tidbit he could come up with. And if you have wondered how Obama knew so much about the inside of the Clinton campaign, here’s the answer.
McChrystal had a civilian communications specialist assigned to him named Duncan Boothby. He’d been there about a year, well within a time span to have been hand-picked himself. Boothby resigned immediately after this story broke, I believe on Tuesday, even before McChrystal suffered his fate.
My thoughts are that it was Boothby who cleared Hastings and probably Boothby who was the source of most of the comments attributed to a “close aide or adviser.”
It just all stinks to high heaven. It’s not as if McChrystal called a news conference and disrespected civilian leaders. No, this little reporter ingratiated himself to the group and followed them around, hoping they would get drunk and “loosen up.” Maybe all reporters do this sort of thing, which is why I would not trust one EVER. But he seems extra slimy to me.
So Duncan Boothby authorized Hastings, but who contacted Boothby about it? Just say, if the administration wanted for some reason to get McChrystal out, what better person than someone like Mr. Hastings who had proved himself in the past (as during the campaign).
So they get him in there, he picks up any dirt he can find or dig up, write up the story as if it were McCrystal who said all the things himself, and publish it in Rolling Stone magazine.
But, and here’s the important part, before it comes out, coordinate with the “state” media as to how to pick out certain phrases and play them up, ruin the man even before the story is in print. Get it done and imbedded in everybody’s mind before they can read the article themselves and find out that most of the statements were actually said by someone else. Somebody tells you what somebody else said, this is called hear-say.
It just fits together so perfectly. But why did they want Patraeus in that spot? Maybe to set him up for failure, seeing as how he was Bush’s guy?
Then, on the other hand, some believe the General set it up himself in order to get out of his assignment.
Either way, somebody set it up. This was not just the normal course of events.
But the way the media isolates words, using them to smear a person the way they are experts at doing just has to stop. They should not have this power. I mean, who hasn’t said something about their boss or someone they don’t care for, or who they are disappointed with in an unguarded moment, and especially if drinking in a social, casual setting.
Just be sure there’s no reporter with a tape recorder and a pad anywhere within hearing distance, one with a plan and an agenda.
Never trust a reporter.
UPDATE: A few hours ago I read a story by Washington Post and I should have taken a screen shot of it, but I didn’t. I wanted to go back to it just now and it is almost impossible to find it in any search machine. Finally did locate it but the headline has been changed, and I don’t know how much of the story line. There was a woman reporter the first time. Now her name is there and another name is added. So obviously somebody got to them and they changed it.
It said basically that the reporter violated their off the record conversations. The new headline waters it down to say that there is a disagreement between the McChrystal sources and the editor of the Rolling Stone.
They “fact-checked” by sending a list of questions. Here’s a take away example.
In the last question, the fact-checker asked: “Did Gen. McChrystal vote for President Obama? (The reporter tells me that this info originates from McChrystal himself.)”
Boothby replied in all capitals. “IMPORTANT — PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE THIS — THIS IS PERSONAL AND PRIVATE INFORMATION AND UNRELATED TO HIS JOB. IT WOULD BE INAPPROPRIATE TO SHARE.” He went on to describe the “strict rules” under which military personnel keep their political views to themselves.
In the article, Hastings reported that the general “had voted for Obama.”
Bates said that the remark was “absolutely” not off the record, and he noted that Boothby’s appeal “isn’t on accuracy or even that it was off the record,” but that it was irrelevant. He said the magazine, like other news organizations, had no obligation to warn sources that they had made unwise remarks.
Boothby absolutely begged them not to print who McChrystal voted for and they did it anyway. Low down.
I guess they won’t talk to a slimy reporter again, huh.

McCain’s office highlighted a number of earmarks in the omnibus that he considered wasteful, including $600,000 for a water storage tower construction in Ada, Okla., which has about 16,000 residents $30,000 for the Woodstock Film Festival Youth Initiative; and $750,000 for the design and fabrication of exhibits in the World Food Prize Hall of Laureates in Des Moines, Iowa.
