There’s a message in there somewhere.

“”Social Rats for a Social(ist) world
Please call or email about available rats

I want my country back! Tea Party Express II

Rick Sanchez  of CNN had a segment, in August I believe it was, referring to a Town Hall protester who said, “I want my country back.”  Then Ricky asks in ominous tones:  What does that mean?  I want my country back?

What hideous, black heart could be behind a statement like that? Well, Roland Martin explains it.  CNN’s Martin: the “I want my country back” comment means “How is this black guy all of the sudden running the country?”

Now, bear in mind, this was in AUGUST of 2009.  If these paid mouths had any insight or any knowledge of what they were saying, if they did not have a preconceived “perspective” they wanted to promote,  they wold know this comment comes from this little satirical song – copyright 2007.  Take a listen.

At the time, I don’t believe anyone even in their wildest imagination thought that Barack Obama would be elected.  Be honest!

Or it could eeeven harkened  back to some wanting to take the country back–from Bush!

But now suddenly CNN and Mr. Roland says it has some racial connotation against our president.   They are dishonest and corrupt.  And unashamed.

Tea Party Express II

From October 25th to November 11th, 2009, California to Florida.  Tell Congress and the White House: “Enough!”

I just saw a very short flash to a CNN reporter they apparently have covering this tea party express tour.  Very short, indeed.  What kind of perspective will be presented of the tour and those who are a part of it or wish they were?  Guess.

I wonder if the full force and power of the White House will come out with their own perspective?  Axelrod has already declared the movement as “just wrong.”

I also heard a discussion today in which Lanny Davis said that all presidents have had issues with the press, citing the fact that a couple of them cancelled their subscription to a newspaper or two.  I can cancel a newspaper subscription.  That is quite different than the White House coming out in force, even to the point of the president joining in, and declaring a network to be irrelevant and trying to dictact to the other networks whether or not they consider them to be a “real” news network.

This is unprecedented in degree – unprecedented.   If anyone wondered if the charge of socialist lodged against Obama during the campaign was over the top, there should be no doubt at this time.  I think the argument now has moved to something like, “well, is there anything all that wrong with being socialist?”  🙂

I say, “Damn right there is.”

Here’s the CNN clip I was referring to.

Why is Neil Cavuto mad at the White House?

I caught the last part of this today where Neil Cavuto was calling the White House bold-faced liars.

Well, I have been searching, first of all, to find his exact statements (which are excerpted below) and, secondly, to find what in the world did the “White House” say and just who said it.

Neil Cavuto:  “”So I’m told the White House is furious at me. Again. This time, not over something I said. But a guest said.

That the president’s surgeon general pick is too fat. That Dr. Regina Benjamin is a good 40 — maybe 50 — pounds too fat.

He said, bad example. I said, very good example.

I stressed that Dr. Benjamin has ample qualifications and might prove an ample and relatable role model for many people. Many on the left, and clearly all at the White House, refused to hear that. One implying my real intent was to go after the good doctor because she was African-American.


And the White House is flat-out lying to say otherwise.

But I know the real skinny here.

This isn’t about my segment. Like I said, they didn’t say boo about ABC’s segment. Just mine. Just FOX. Just desserts, I guess. My sin is not telling the story and arguing it. But the White House selectively going after me for doing it without even listening to it.

I know. Fat chance they would do otherwise. Fat chance I’m even surprised that they are bold-faced liars and hypocrites for citing it.”” [I always thought it was a bald-faced liars, but I don’t know.]

See Fox News:   for a complete transcript of his statements.

Apparently, it’s all over some controversy about the newly appointed Surgeon General, Dr. Regina Benjamin, being overweight and a bad example of health.

I found that I’m not the only one who doesn’t know what was said to fire Neil up.  See the below link to Inside Cable.

More to come if I ever find out who said what.  🙂

Morning Joe broadcast was at the White House not in the White House

Well, when I heard Morning Joe was to broadcast live this morning from the White House, I was picturing it maybe in the Oval Office or at least inside somewhere.  Instead it was outside, near the White House, in 10 degree cold (considering the chill factor).

Robert Gibbs appeared before daylight.  Looking forward to Obama’s speech tonight, Gibbs said:

“The president will talk tonight about how the legislation has already begun to save jobs throughout the country,” Gibbs said. “We do have a plan that, for the first time, addresses the millions of people who are making their payments but can’t get a refinancing.”

David Axelrod joined the set after the sun was rising and added that:

“Tonight, he has the opportunity to talk to the American people about the steps we need to take to get out of the situation we’re in,” Axelrod said. “I think he’s very confident we can do that, and he’s going to express that as well.”

I don’t why I thought this would include President Obama, but I can’t figure out what was the purpose of the whole thing.  Why did they want to camp out by the White House and broadcast the program?

See WaPo for more detail.

Robert Gibbs gave Mika and Joe a tour of the White House. Was this a part of the show or after? If it was part of the program, I missed it. See video Here.

Chicago Friend Named as White House Social Secretary

desiree-rogers Desiree Rogers, a prominent Chicago businesswoman and Harvard MBA, will be named the first African American White House social secretary, sources in the presidential transition office said yesterday.

Rogers, 49, is a friend of Michelle and President-elect Barack Obama’s, and a leader in Chicago corporate and civic circles; her appointment signals that the first couple consider the job crucial to how they introduce themselves to the country and the globe. She was a major fundraiser for Obama.

Last week, Desiree Rogers hosted Valerie Jarrett’s birthday party that included the president-elect and Michelle Obama. ‘She has extraordinary flair and exquisite taste,’ Jarrett said. ‘My party was perfect — she had my favorite food, my favorite flowers.’

‘The president-elect and Mrs. Obama wanted a social secretary with extraordinary accomplishment who would bring vision and a fresh approach to the White House,’ said Stephanie Cutter, spokeswoman for the presidential transition.

In January, Desiree hosted a $1,000-a-person fundraiser for Obama that attracted 600 people.  “Welcome Back Barry”  See:  http://chicagoist.com/2008/01/09/welcome_back_ba.php
