  • Harry Reid: Auto Bailout Probably Saved Ford (Imbecile Alert! Ford Didn't Receive Bailout $$)

    07/22/2010 10:47:29 AM PDT · by MissesBush · 60 replies · 1+ views
    The video is available at the link above. Of course the media will remain silent on this latest Reid gaffe/lie while they keep an obsessive watch on every syllable Sharron Angle utters to try to nail her on something. Reid also laughably claims that if the GOP had its way, GM and Chrysler would no longer exist. Someone ought to inform Dumbo Reid that without the illegal conversion of TARP funds into an auto bailout done by the Obama cabal they'd have been reorganized under Chapter 11 like the 3 major airlines were in the early 2000s and would have...

    Democratic Congressman Hank Johnson is now trying to claim that he was speaking metaphorically when he said he feared Guam would "tip over and capsize" due to additional troops placed there. Sure you were! It sure did not look or sound like it!
  • Congressman Hank Johnson (D): If Guam gets too overpopulated, it might tip over!! (Video)

    And this is the mentality of our lawmakers representing us? No wonder this country is in shambles. These are the brilliant people regulating our industry folks. This is a must see video of what our politicians are lacking in Washington, and that's common sense and education. I am at a loss for words for this fine displacement of intellect. Watch the video, especially at the 1:20 mark:

    As for the point about Arabic translators needed for Afghanistan, the Obama campaign points to the well-documented presence of foreign fighters there, many of whom do speak Arabic. However, these folks are mostly shooting at NATO troops, not talking to them. No doubt there are a handful of Arabic speakers employed at Bagram and Kandahar and other detention centers to interrogate foreign fighters captured on the battlefield. But I have not seen any reports that there is a shortage of such personnel, or that the need for such translators in Iraq has hamstrung the interrogators in Afghanistan. Foreign fighters captured...
  • Those Aren't Short Shorts. They're Mommy Shorts. (Michelle Obama's Mommy Bloomers)

    The first lady with a right to bear arms is now exercising her right to bear her legs. That's what the chatty-o-sphere's saying about Michelle Obama's so-called "short shorts", which she was wearing when she strolled around the Grand Canyon on a family trip yesterday. But those aren't short shorts. They're shorts, period. What wizened, saggy chinned, fanny pack-wearing news anchor called them short shorts to begin with? What jealous, Dockers-clad, khaki-panted right wing zealot believed them? Who out there's really scandalized? For serious. Those aren't short shorts. They're mommy bloomers. Even webby bastion of liberalism The Huffington Post asked...

    CNN ^ | 6/16/09 | staff
    President Obama is so busy these days dealing with pressing foreign policy issues like Iran and North Korea, that he can't seem to tell his right from his left. After holding a bilateral meeting in the Oval office with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak, the two leaders walked out to the Rose Garden podiums. That's when the left-right two-step happened. Mr. Obama took his place behind the right podium, leaving President Lee a bit confused. He smiled as Obama realized the mistake and switched to the left podium. That oops moment alone wouldn't have deserved a write-up, but for the...

    The Politico ^ | Wed Apr 8, 2009 | Amie Parnes
    President Barack Obama can’t stand to be without his “Entourage.” Call it a guilty pleasure, or maybe it just rings familiar to him. The HBO series about an aspiring actor features a fast-talking agent named Ari, based on the real-life brother of Obama’s chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel. For less R-rated fare, he tunes into “Hannah Montana” or “SpongeBob SquarePants” in the White House with his daughters. Aides said he would have watched Monday night’s NCAA championship on TiVo on his way home from Iraq Tuesday night. Jon Stewart’s smackdown of CNBC’s Jim Cramer? Obama was eager to see it....

I asked Cookie to put together a little montage here of all the stuttering around that Obama did in his press conference today and I want you to hear this because -- and we didn't repeat anything here. It goes 46 seconds, and we're doing this because we hear constantly, "What a great orator and a great communicator! Ohhhh, this man is smooth!" Just listen.

    Last night Obama had to field an off-the-cuff question from ABC News: "If you had it to do over again, knowing what you know now, would you support the surge?" Well .. there was a small problem. This was not a question that Barack's handlers had prepared him for. He had no script. He had to ad lib, and for Obama that's not good. Sit down folks. Here is Barack's answer. See if you can make any sense at all out of this. Remember, this is the man who wants to be our Commander in Chief responding to a...

    In his interview with CBS News, Obama says: Logan: Because you do have a situation seven years on into this war where Osama bin Laden and all his lieutenants and all the leaders of the Taliban, they’re still there. And they’re inside Pakistan. Obama: Right. It’s a huge problem. And first of all, if we hadn’t taken our eye off the ball, we might have caught them before they got into Pakistan and were able to reconstitute themselves. Several times in recent interviews, Obama has referred to "taken our eye off the ball" in terms of the invasion of Iraq,...

    Obama Ignorance Watch: What Do the Joint Chiefs Really Do? Before the long weekend began, Barack Obama made a semi-flip-flop regarding the situation in Iraq, even allowing that the surge had achieved some stability and that the next president would be foolish to fritter away those gains. Predictably, this acknowledgement of the obvious triggered howls of outrage on the left. Obama firmly stuck to his new position for almost two full hours before assembling the press once more to reaffirm his long-expressed intention to abandon Iraq. “I am absolutely committed to ending the war,” the longtime community organizer declared. “I...

Two reporters, however, took it upon themselves to alter the text of Obama’s speech in articles they published...
