An irritable Barack Obama took questions from the adoring White House press corps for nearly an hour this afternoon, angrily beating back even the most gentle criticisms of the way he’s handled the turmoil in Iran and his plans to socialize the American health care system.
It appears that, when faced with anything less than complete and universal adoration, President Pantywaist feels the need to lash out.
A Rasmussen Reports poll of New Jersey voters released last week shows Republican Chris Christie with a double-digit lead over Democrat Governor Jon Corzine in the state’s upcoming gubernatorial election.
The Presidential Approval Index, created by Rasmussen Reports to measure those with strong opinions about the President’s job performance, has hit 0% for the first time in the Presidency of Barack Obama.
President Barack Obama, not content with finding pervasive loving tributes to him only in our time, has begun searching the ancient hieroglyphs of Egypt for signs that past civilizations predicted his future greatness.
Now this is strange. It seems the “ineffective,” “detrimental” Rush Limbaugh, who “only hurts the Republican cause” and “drives voters away from the big tent” because he’s “just an entertainer” and a “blowhard” has struck a nerve in the White House of the failed Obama administration.
California’s Supreme Court upheld the Proposition 8 Amendment to the state’s Constitution, which banned gay marriage, while holding that same-sex faux marriages mistakenly performed before the Proposition passed can stand.
Statistics indicate that, of the 18,000 faux marriages performed involving same sex couples, about 9,000 will be null and void in a few years anyway due to divorce.
Late last week the RNC produced a James Bond themed video mocking Nancy Pelosi and her bizarre assertion during her disjointed press conference that the CIA had lied to her and not told her that waterboarding had been used as a means of interrogating terror suspects like 9/11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed.
I watched the video and thought nothing more of it. It was a cute way to wrap the CIA / Spy angle around a particularly humiliating appearance by the lying Speaker of the House. I thought the actual video of the press conference, where Stretch Pelosi is fumbling with her papers and quivering as she makes up tall tales about the CIA was more damaging, but I’m no advertising guru. Themed web ads are where it’s at apparently, and as themed web ads go it was themed and it was a web ad. Enough said.
Apparently, the lefties got themselves all in a snit over a two second shot of Grandma Nancy next to Honor Blackman, who played the character Pussy Galore in the Bond film Goldfinger. Somehow, of all the Bond images in the ad, we were supposed to associate that one image with Nancy Pelosi and then get offended that the RNC had called Nancy Pelosi a pussy.
Elizabeth Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, is kicking ass and taking names in an assault against the weak foreign policy of failed President Barack Obama and his defenders in the liberal media.
And conservatives, desperate for an articulate leader who can forcefully defend and portray our values and ideals on the national stage, are starting to pay attention.
Bill Clinton, the UN’s new Special Envoy to Haiti, did what he does best this past weekend when he met up with actress Fran Drescher at the Life Ball in Vienna. What he does best: A little grab ass.
Ben Jakes-Johnson, who until this weekend was listed on the web site of the New York State Young Democrats as their Executive Vice President, has been sentenced to 57-months in federal prison for posessing child pornography.
According to the North County Gazette, Jakes-Johnson held this post and was also President Albany County Young Democrats despite having admitted in October 2005 to viewing and distributing Internet child pornography, some of which depicted toddlers.
Jakes-Johnson was listed as the NYSYD’s Executive Vice President when the Gazette published their article. The site now lists the position as “Vacant.”
