At a press conference of female House Democrats pushing back against Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) criticism of Ambassador Susan Rice’s false explanation of the Benghazi terror attack, Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wisc.) mocked McCain’s choice of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) as his running mate in 2008. “It’s very difficult to recruit qualified women, and Sen. McCain should know that,” Moore said at a Capitol Hill press conference Friday, prompting laughter from the other women members on the stage. Headline resplit by staff.
Sadly, these leading women show that excess estrogen in a room can cause emanations every bit as snide and vicious as one full of excess testosterone.
And I like Greg Gutfeld´s take on folks like these women Dems and racialist Senator Clayburn, that whenever the Dems start playing the race and woman cards that is the sign that they are losing the argument.
Democrats prove every time they open their mouths that they are totally classless. My guess is that Obama and his cronies said who can we send out to make our case -- oh yea, lets get a black woman who if attacked we can claim racism and sexism. Hey, Susan Rice fills the bill (plus she is stupid-my comment). No doubt in my mind that that is what happened.
#8, According to this source Patton was 46 out of a class of 103. While the article indicates that he had to spend an extra year at West Point, he actually spent the normal fours years - the authorities not giving him sufficient credit for prior education at VMI.
Part of McCain´s low ranking was his vast accumulation of demerits. Apparently he did (does) not play well with others. Supposedly he has (had?) a pretty high IQ - his Dad and Granddad being high ranking admirals and all.
I hate to say, "I told you so", but, Senator, that´s what you get for always ´reaching across the aisle to your Democrat friends´. They are not your friends. Never have been. Never will be as long as (R) is beside your name.
Moore´s son, Sowande Ajumoke Omokunde, aged 26, was arrested in connection with the November 2, 2004, (election day), tire-slashing of Republican party vehicles in Milwaukee; he was charged with a felony in connection with the event on January 24, 2005, but agreed, on January 20, 2006, to plead no contest in exchange for a sentencing recommendation of restitution and probation. On April 26, 2006, Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Michael Brennan sentenced Omokunde to serve four months in prison and to pay $2,305 in fines and restitution. In response, Moore said, "I love my son very much. I´m very proud of him. He´s accepted responsibility."
Moore was born in Racine, Wisconsin, but has spent most of her life in Milwaukee. She is the eighth of nine children; her father was a factory worker and her mother a public school teacher. Moore attended North Division High School and served as student council president. She later attended Marquette University and became a single mother and was for a while a welfare recipient. Nonetheless, she was able to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science, graduating in 1973.
There is an obvious matter of degree here. The idiot house women who mocked McCain are scum. McCain is not scum. He served his country with valor. These women have absolutely no credibility, no integrity. They are liars. They are pigs. McCain may be a pain, but he´s our pain in the neck.
#20..demerits play a very small role in class rank at USNA..been there..done that..got the T-shirt..If Susan Rice was a Rhodes..then she was an affirmative action Rhodes..she has been a failure as ambassador to the UN..but that is kind of the norm with this administration..so being a failure is pretty much a grade A performance.
General George S. Patton, Jr. graduated 45th out of 102 graduates in the USMA Class of 1909. He held the Corps of Cadets rank of Adjutant at graduation, was an outstanding athlete and participated in the 1912 Summer Olympics in Stockholm, Sweden.
Glad to see people waking up to the facts that Rhodes scholars are ultra liberal anti American nutjobs.Google the list and see for yourself.From the 1950´s to today,you will recognise the names.Cecil Rhodes was a rich diamond mine owner in Africa.Rhodesia was named after him.He left his diamond fortune (Debeers )to educate like minded folks(Oxford)that America is and was eveil.This was early 1800´s,not long after our independence was won from his mother country,England.He wanted America to belong to the British empire once more.
Ooooh. Marquette. That´s a bastion intellectual enlightenment! /s Seriously, why would a woman who graduated from Marquette ever want to make fun of a man who graduated from one of the service academies? What´s wrong with her? Also, where are the statesmen in Washington? Have they all been buried?
These beatches should be made to apologize to McCain. He survived years in a NV prison. Was tortured, and never gave in to the gooks. He was asked if he wanted to get out of the prison and just voice anti war ideas, and he didn´t. He stayed to the end instead of betraying his country and comrades. These people are sick, hateful, scum of the earth. This is what Obama is all about.
They are shooting themselves in the foot, making fools of themselves, and providing ammunition for those who say that women have no place in politics and should not, with a small number of obvious exceptions, even be voting. It is worth remembering that the machinery of American representative democracy was not designed to operate on the basis of anything like universal enfranchisement, and that many of our problems today result directly from the fact that people are eligible to vote who were not even dreamed of as voters when the system was designed. Observations such as this, factual though they are, infuriate many people, who blame the Founders for not having extended the franchise to everyone. Such fulminations and righteous indignation miss the point. The point is that the machine was never designed nor intended to run on the fuel it is now consuming. The results were predictable. The acronym GIGO sums it up. This is the classic history of all vulgar democracies and was well known to the ancient Greeks 2500 years ago.
Not a good idea to bring up McCain´s grades at Annapolis. First, it draws attention to some prominently missing grades in the national political life, those of Stinky. Why haven´t we seen those transcripts? Second, it draws attention to the rest of McCain´s Navy career, which includes years as a guest in the Hanoi Hilton. Could these stupid congressional twits take even one night of the treatment McCain got there? (Sheesh, I never thought I would be defending McCain, but he is a bona fide war hero.)
A country that stands by while people like this openly steal elections year after year, deserves their mocking abuse. When a political party allows it´s poll watchers to be ´ejected´ from every Philadelphia polling place, as the Republicans did this election, there is NO choice, NO chance for responsible leadership. I´d ask someone to get the network news to report on voter fraud, etc., but it seems NO one other than actual American communists know how to manipulate the media.
The fact that a milktoast tool like Rance Pants expects to ´lead´ the RNC again, says it all. When asked by Laura Ingram why Republicans didn´t press for a conservative moderator for at least one debate, he said, ´well that´s up to the Presidential Debating Committee.´ End of story for that dope. Apparently you can take his lunch money any time of day.
Why do democrat women put other women down? Why do democrat women think they are better than any other woman? Why do women allow women to do this to other women? Just like my question about that Broadwell hag, why would she do that to Holly Petraeus? Women still need to stand by each other.
Demoncratic House Women now that is a misnomer...picking on poor Johnny, don´t they have some of the people´s business to attend to...so why pratell are they involve in an insult fest...how immature!!! And as far as Sarah Palin goes, they are always so obsessively jealous of Conservative woman, will they ever learn???
Sarah Palin is keeping up the infomercial peddler charge against President Barack Obama, criticizing his “ShamWow” speech in Boston and accusing him of lying to the American people. (Snip) “For starters we anticipated a presidential apology for lying to Americans repeatedly when he promised things like, ‘If you like your current health care plan, you can keep it.’ Make no mistake, he knew he was lying when he said that,” Palin wrote. “Was remorse and sympathy shown for Americans who now can’t afford health insurance thanks to Obamacare? Nope. … Obama didn’t lie to you when he said, ‘if you
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said she would be "disappointed" in the American electorate if Hillary Clinton becomes a serious candidate for president in 2016. The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee argued Clinton would not be right for the role as commander in chief after four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, died last year in a terrorist attack against a U.S. consulate in Benghazi. (Snip) She said "anyone who would just throw away 200 years of military ethos and leave our men behind to be murdered" should "never be considered as a commander in chief."
Americans who are fed up with Obamacare won a victory yesterday. The House voted to defund Obamacare while still funding the federal government to avoid a “devastating” shutdown. (I shall not digress, but it’s beyond distressing to hear liberals try to convince Americans that any government slowdown is comparable to “terrorism.”) (Snip) I want no pity. I need no empathy. But use me as a barometer. Over the years, the leftwing media has falsely and irrationally accused me of everything from faking a pregnancy to abetting murder. They lie. Deal with it.
Now we can say it without a doubt: Seattle has the loudest fans in the world. During the Seahawks-49ers game Sunday, the 12th Man broke the Guinness World Record for loudest crowd roar, the record attempt’s organizer said. We have yet to officially confirm the report from former Seahawks player Joe Tafoya, but he tweeted from the field that the record had been broken. Seahawks fans hit 131.9 decibels, according to The Seattle Times, after the Seahawks and 49ers returned to the field from a weather delay. The previous record was 131.76 decibels, set during a 2011 soccer match at
It was an overcast, albeit relatively mild August day by Washington D.C. standards, fifty years ago today, as I joined the thousands walking along Constitution Avenue toward the Lincoln Memorial. Many of those in the crowd who had traveled vast distances by busses and cars from all over the nation, but in particular the deep South, had a look of apprehension bordering on fear, not knowing what to expect from the police and those vehemently opposed to unfettered civil rights. Despite the trepidation and regardless of skin color, nationality or faith all were determined to compel the nation to listen
Sarah Palin joined Eric Bolling on Fox News this morning to take a mini-victory lap over some Democrats suddenly embracing the idea she put forth years ago over health care “death panels.” Palin felt somewhat vindicated, but didn’t want to “condone them… for trying to jump off the Obama train wreck.” She told Bolling that rationing was in the health care law from the beginning, and the Democrats who didn’t notice it until now did not want to look like “buffoons.” (Snip) Palin proudly declared her allegiance to Team Rand, hitting Christie for his “schtick” of “set-up situations”
Back in September of 2008, Sarah Palin spoke at a Colorado Springs rally. During her address, she lamented the all-encompassing power of government sponsored mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. (Snip) She was, of course, pilloried for this. Virtually every mainstream media outlet pounced, accused her of ignorance, and reminded the American people that these were not taxpayer funded entities. Taxpayers simply weren’t a factor.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
