OBAMA AND NOTHING BUT

Vomit Alert:  Obama State dinner.  I already have.

Obama’s ‘scorched earth’ policy on Iran, by Dick Morris.  As he says, “Terrifying.”  Based on Obama’s ‘demand’ of Netanyahu postponing any attack on Iran until after the election.  Treasonous? Questionable, but grounds for hanging?  You betcha, sweet rider.

Bracketology  Today Matt Drudge ridiculed the ineptitude and irrelevance of our president:

Hey, he may not know a damn thing about the economy, or business, or foreign policy, or science, or history–but he can copy the experts’ basketball predictions!

 

 

 

 

POLITICS

A tribute to a ‘Lady’ on her 100th birthday.

All the while, the beautiful people, the pretty people in New York and Hollywood and Washington, were calling Mrs. [N] names and making fun of her for being square and a loyal wife. In their world, “working” is a joke and so is loyalty to your husband. Not in Mrs. [N’s] world.

This graph is about her 50 years ago.  She hasn’t changed.  Neither have the Liberals.  Yes, I know; the author may be too gentle on the takedown of Mr. N.  But, clearly, that’s not the point of this tribute.

ENERGY

 Seaweed in Your Gas Tank The President’s energy policies prefer fantasy to reality.  He hates carbon fuel, oil and coal the most, but his rhetoric is designed to disguise this loathing.  He can’t; it’s obvious to all but the blind and deaf.  Keystone’s veto gave it away, if he hadn’t already, “because the case for Keystone is so obvious and overwhelming. Vetoing it gratuitously prolongs our dependence on outside powers, kills thousands of shovel-ready jobs, forfeits a major strategic resource to China, damages relations with our closest ally, and sends billions of oil dollars to Hugo Chávez, Vladimir Putin, and already obscenely wealthy sheiks.”  Calling it un-American is probably short of what it was.

BUDGET

 Why is Paul Ryan the Lone Ranger?  OK.  A little late for him to be the GOP Nominee, but whoever is and wins, Ryan better have a major role in addressing our biggest problem, the debt and deficit.
