Obama: ´You Can´t Do
Things By Yourself´
Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 2/26/2013 4:54:30 PM     Post Reply
"You know, the one thing about being president is, after four years, you get pretty humble. You´d think maybe you wouldn´t but actually you become more humble--you realize what you don´t know," Obama said. "You realize all the mistakes you made. But you also realize you can´t do things by yourself. That´s not how our system works. You´ve got to have the help and the goodwill of Congress, and what that means is you´ve got to make sure that constituents of members of Congress are putting some pressure on them, making sure they´re doing the right thing."

RUSH: There´s an interesting cover story at TIME Magazine. "TIME´s long investigation of American health care prices missed one thing: We pay our doctors way too much." In the current issue of TIME there´s a huge cover story by Steve Brill. It´s 24,000 words, and do you know what he concludes? He concludes that health care is very expensive, the prices are very high, and hospitals charge those high prices for the same reason that any other business would. It´s because they can, and Brill concludes in 24,000 words that Obamacare is not only gonna not help,

A new video from the House Republican Conference calls into question President Obama’s recent long distance travel to discuss the sequester instead of staying in Washington to find a solution. “President Obama created the sequester,” the video begins. “Instead of urging Senate Democrats to pass a solution, he’s traveling everywhere but to Harry Reid’s office.” The video maps out the president’s travels to five different destinations in February alone, ending in his trip to Hampton Roads, VA today. During his speech at Newport News shipyard the president promised that he is “not interested in spin or playing the blame game.

I was just sittin’ here in the office listenin’ to the president givin’ a speech when, ya know, it occured to me, that there’s nothin’ more condescending than pretendin’ that, since everyone in America who is not an upper middle-class liberal drops the “g” in “ing” and, in all circumstances, says “ya” insead of “you,” the President of the United States should talk like this. Whadaya think? I’m thinkin’ it’s pretty silly, is what I’m thinkin’.

RUSH: Sequesteria. We are in the midst of sequesteria. We´re counting down the days to the disaster, zero hour. It is this Friday. Everybody is trying to think of ways to put the amount of money we´re talking about here into some sort of understandable context. Even if you say that we have $3,700 billion every year that we spend, i.e., $3.7 trillion, okay, we got $3,700 billion, and we´re gonna cut $25 billion. It´s like, okay, I got $3,700 and I´m not gonna spend a quarter.

Ashley Judd’s biggest problem:
Her history of bizarre comments

She has spoken out against having kids, saying it is “unconscionable to breed” while there are so many starving children in the world. She has criticized the tradition of fathers “giving away” their daughters at weddings, calling that practice “a common vestige of male dominion over a woman’s reproductive status.” She has even compared mountaintop removal mining to the Rwandan genocide, and has criticized Christianity as a religion that “legitimizes and seals male power.” Yet actress Ashley Judd is seriously contemplating a Senate run in Kentucky, a conservative-leaning state where such liberal comments

  


  

Why a Duck?
Wall Street Journal, by James Taranto    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 2/26/2013 4:29:42 PM     Post Reply
What´s a duck worth? We last contemplated that question last summer, in connection with the election for Illinois´s Eighth Congressional District. Our answer at the time, "about $20," is what we pay for a whole Long Island duckling, at $3.99 a pound. But it turns out that a lame duck is more expensive than a dead one, and by several orders of magnitude. The New York Times reported Saturday that Barack Obama has converted his campaign--originally known as Obama for America, then (in its incarnation as the 2012 campaign) as Organizing for America--into "a tax-exempt ´social welfare group,´ "

Who should pay to defend
Larry Craig’s bathroom antics?

WASHINGTON — A federal judge this week will confront the surprisingly important fallout from former Idaho Republican Sen. Larry Craig’s 2007 bathroom arrest. Craig’s own money may be on the line Wednesday, but that’s not all. Other politicians, too, could have a future stake in what U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson says about how campaign dollars can be spent. The Federal Election Commission says Craig improperly used more than $216,000 in campaign funds to pay attorneys after being charged with disorderly conduct for his behavior in a Minneapolis airport men’s room. Craig’s attorneys insist he was on official business

As you no doubt have heard, the Germans have banned the Nazi party. It wasn’t a decision grounded in some academic principle or an over-abundance of political correctness about hate speech and the like. It’s because the country succumbed to a madness that plunged the world into war and made the German people the authors of staggering genocide. With an abundance of soul-searching, self-awareness, and well-earned shame they opted to ban organizations that profess a desire to return to such horrors. It’s part of their effort to ensure the phrase “never again” has meaning.

VATICAN CITY — Pope Benedict XVI will keep the name Benedict XVI and become the Roman pontiff emeritus or pope emeritus, the Vatican announced on Tuesday, putting an end to days of speculation on how the pope will be addressed once he ceases to be the leader of the world’s 1.1 billion Roman Catholics on Thursday. Benedict, the first pope to resign voluntarily in six centuries, will dress in a simple white cassock, forgoing the mozzetta, the elbow-length cape worn by some Catholic clergymen, the Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, told reporters at a news briefing.

The president of the United States should close down his new lobbying, advocacy and fund-raising organization, says a left-wing group that has long sought to reduce the role of donations in politics. “If President Obama is serious about his often-expressed desire to rein in big money in politics, he should shut down Organizing for Action and disavow any plan to schedule regular meetings with its major donors,” said Bob Edgar, president of Common Cause, which helped pass the 2002 campaign finance law. “With its reported promise of quarterly presidential meetings for donors and ‘bundlers’ who raise $500,000,

The leader of Staten Island’s powerful Republican Party abruptly announced his resignation today – a surprise move that could hurt the GOP’s chances to win the mayoralty, sources said. GOP chairman Bob Scamardella cited disagreements with some of the borough’s Republican elected officials – particularly Councilman James Oddo – as reason for his decision to step down. “My resignation occurs because I have been hamstrung in my ability to function and I want to put an end to recent public displays of party discord,” Scamardella said in a letter to GOP County Committee members. “I became chairman to insure

Paterson resident Aswad Ayinde proclaimed he was Christ reincarnated when he deliberately impregnated his underage daughter multiple times in a plan to keep the family’s bloodlines pure, a prosecutor told jurors in state court Tuesday. The defense, meanwhile, said the jury must not convict Ayinde over a "lifestyle choice" of incest – no matter how offensive it might seem – especially if those who engaged in it did so willingly. “To be 15-years-old and pregnant is a difficult situation. To be 15-years-old and pregnant with your father’s child is just sad,” said Passaic County Senior Assistant Prosecutor Lisa Squitieri

After focusing on 20 Of The Most Embarrassing Moments In The History Of The Democrat Party last week, it seems appropriate to point out some of the greatest moments of the Republican Party. 1) Emancipation Proclamation (1863): The first Republican President, Abraham Lincoln, issued an order freeing all slaves in the confederacy. 2) End of the Civil War (1865): Abe Lincoln guides the north to victory in the Civil War and reunites the nation. 3) Women's right to vote (1872): Republicans Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton write the text of the 19th Amendment, which is introduced by Republican Senator Aaron A. Sargent of California. The Amendment was finally ratified in 1920. 4) Victory in the Spanish American War (1898): Republican William McKinley achieves victory in the Spanish American War and forces Spain to give up its claim on Cuba.

Today, a three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals voted unanimously to bar the state of Florida from forcing welfare applicants to undergo drug testing. As the judges found: “… the State failed to offer any factual support or to present any empirical evidence of a “concrete danger” of illegal drug use within Florida’s TANF population. The evidence in this record does not suggest that the population of TANF recipients engages in illegal drug use or that they misappropriate government funds for drugs at the expense of their own and their children’s basic subsistence.

A salty Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Tuesday told members of the Senate to “get off their ass” and pass a bill to replace the $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts that will kick in on March 1. “We have moved a bill in the House twice. We should not have to move a third bill before the Senate gets off their ass and begins to do something,” Boehner told reporters in a press conference, repeating a message he had just delivered in a closed-door meeting of the House Republican conference.The House in 2012 approved measures twice

WASHINGTON- The U.S.-led military coalition in Afghanistan incorrectly reported a decline in Taliban attacks last year, and officials said Tuesday that there was actually no change in the number of attacks on international troops from 2011 to 2012. The corrected numbers - from the original reports of a 7 percent decline to one of no change - could undercut the narrative promoted by the international coalition and the Obama administration of an insurgency in steep decline. A coalition spokesman, Jamie Graybeal, attributed the miscounting to clerical errors and said the problem does not change

Mexicali, Mexico — Police in the border city of Mexicali say they have recovered a powerful improvised cannon used to hurl packets of marijuana across a border fence into California. Police told the Televisa network that the device was made up of a plastic pipe and a crude metal tank that used compressed air from the engine of an old car. The apparatus fired cylinders packed with drugs that weighed as much as 30 pounds, police. It was confiscated last week after U.S. officers told Mexican police that they had been confiscating a large number of drug packages that appeared to

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security no longer uses control of the actual border as a measure of how well the Border Patrol is doing its job, according to written testimony released today by the Government Accountability Office. The GAO said that by the end of fiscal 2010, the Border Patrol had been able secure “operational control” of only 44 percent of the U.S.-Mexico border. Then, with 56 percent of the border not under “operation control,” DHS simply stopped using “operational control” as a measure of the Border Patrol’s performance.

The Senate voted Tuesday to end debate and move to a final vote on former Sen. Chuck Hagel’s confirmation as Defense secretary. The 71-27 vote paves the way for a final up-or-down vote on Hagel later Tuesday, and comes after the first-ever filibuster of a Defense Department nominee earlier this month. Eighteen Republicans voted with Democrats to break the filibuster and end debate, and at least a few of them are expected to support Hagel in a final vote. Sixty votes were needed to end debate. All but four Republicans blocked Hagel’s nomination two weeks ago.
