The “Milli Vanilli President” LOL - that’s classic!
Soooo perfect: Obama, the Milli Vanilli of politics.
Mr. Steyn is so good with words.
Whatever you do...
Don’t put the blame on you...
Yeah, that fits!
Can’t wait to see the photoshop graphics!
HH: Let me ask you about Republicans now, and lets dish out some criticism. Today, Joe Barton, ranking Republican on House Energy, said an obvious thing, which is due process ought not to be suspended, even when the bad guys an oil company. And a lot of Republicans have round heels, and they are assaulting him for being indifferent, which he isnt, to the devastation on the Gulf. What hes saying is we have laws here, and we dont let presidents berate and destroy companies, Mark Steyn. But Im concerned Republicans are unwilling to fight on this idea that the rule of law is the rule of law, even for oil companies.
MS: No, this isnt difficult, by the way. I mean, if there are legitimate claims against British Petroleum, theres a mechanism for that, and its called the justice system.
MS: And I trust the courts. I dont trust a government escrow fund, because I think its highly likely that what will happen is what happened with the stimulus money, which was supposed to go and help stimulate the economy, and instead went into a lot of various seedy rackets benefiting Democrat client groups. So the idea that this money is safer for the so-called victims of BP by being in the Obama-SEIU-ACORN escrow account, or whatever it is, than if it was being, than if it was being adjudicated under the courts, I think this is terrible. The United States, when I left that great land a few weeks ago to start my travels, at that point, it was not technically a banana republic. The fact that it can simply, that Obamas enforcers can simply lean on BP and demand they stick $20 billion dollars in an Obama-controlled bank account, I think it is pretty close to banana republic status.
HH: I think were going to find out that much to my surprise, Chicagos been deeply injured by the Gulf spill. Somehow, that moneys coming up to Illinois.
MS: Yeah, its going to be (laughing), its going to be washing up on Michigan Avenue, I think, or whatever.
HH: Yeah, theyre going to find it there. Well, what about Great Britain? Thats where we find you tonight in London. They are, you know, there are a lot of pensioners sitting in the park there along Hyde Park who depend upon their BP checks, which arent going to be coming this quarter, Mark Steyn.
MS: Yeah, no, and clearly, its not the idea that somehow, BP did this deliberately to Obama, that as British newspapers are beginning to complain, this pathetic president sees this as some sort of oil slick version of the War of 1812-II, just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water
MS: I mean, this is beginning to exasperate people here. BP has paid an enormous price with, in effect, the government of the worlds superpower talking down its share price. The idea that BP did this deliberately, and is not trying to fix it as quickly as possible, is absurd. But what Obama is doing now is basically confiscating British pensions. And at some point, you know, at some point, theres not much left of the so-called special relationship as it is. Obama is rapidly becoming the most loathed man in the United Kingdom. But that situation is going to deteriorate beyond repair if he carries on like this.
HH: A minute left, Mark Steyn. Do we get you back stateside fairly soon? Or are you afraid theyre going to revoke your status in the United States as a legal resident and would-be citizen, whatever, I dont know.
MS: No, no. I think after my recent remarks, actually, my house in New Hampshire has just been added to the Obama-BP escrow account.
I just love that Steyn, seemingly more so than other conservative pundits, does not mince words when it comes to the Pretender-in-Chief.
Steyn is by far, my favorite fill in for Rush and my favorite columinst. He’s absolutely fantastic. His peircing choice of words and his accent deliver every time.
Hmm, I think MV had a hit called “Blame it on the Rain”, so Milli 0bama’s one hit would be “Blame it on George Bush”.
LOL - Milli Vanilli ! Fake, artificial, B.S. to the audience ! I remember how awful Milli Vanilli was at the time ! This is before they were caught lip syncing !
I won’t use the words Obama and president in the same sentence — except in this case — the perfect monicker.
HH - “...Or are you afraid theyre going to revoke your status in the United States as a legal resident and would-be citizen...”
MS - (Should’a said) “No problem Hugh, I hear there are some reliably porous routes along the Southern boarder.”
Barack Milli Vanilli Obama.
That’s great!!! Of course, that should be a given with Mr. Steyn!
Barrak Milli vanilli Obama, fit’s him to a T.
Mark Steyn knows the difference between ‘rein’ and ‘reign’; headline writer doesn’t.
“I spoke, incidentally, to a couple of serious Obama critics over here who claim that mysterious things have begun to happen to them since they criticized Obama, so you do never know.”
