Plus it was Lettermans world wide pants production company who put up a pic of then candidate for president George W. Bush and ran a "snipers wanted" scroll under it and never fired the person who did it on a now defunct show,so commie Letterman has that going for him in the eyes of leftwingers.

Stick to reviewing movies aimed at the 12-year-old mindset, Roger, it's more your speed.

Ebert has jumped the political shark. Of course, Ebert is the same brilliant commentator who said, after the Aurora, Coloradio Batman theater attack, that concealed carry didn't work because no one pulled out their gun and opened fire on the perp. The movie theater in Colorado had the "no concealed carry signs" displayed. Those of us who have concealed carry do follow the law, and when we see the "no concealed carry signs" displayed on a business, we do not patronize that business. We have no intention of entering any business that advertises itself as a Criminal Protection Zone (CPZ). But Ebert's logic is typical for far-left loonies.

As Obama was thinking of all the zingers he should have said after the debate, I am reminded of George Costanza on Seinfeld. "The jerk store called and they are running out of you".

Hey you know who would make a great moderator? Billy Crystal, if he is not hosting the Oscars. That way he could add a sense of humor to the debates and practice his monolog.

More Sleazy Harry Reid Payments

Breitbart Big Government, by Jonathan Strong    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 3/27/2014 5:29:40 AM     Post Reply
Tuesday, Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid reimbursed his campaign for nearly $17,000 in payments made in late 2013 to his granddaughter for “holiday gifts.” But new payments are surfacing bringing the total to $31,000. One $9,064 payment in December 2012, on page 51 of in Reid´s Jan. 31, 2013 Federal Election Commission filing, was made to “Ryan Elisabeth,” a jewelry brand his granddaughter, Ryan Elisabeth Reid, uses. Reid´s campaign described this payment as being for “gifts for supporters.” Reid told the Las Vegas Sun the 2013 payments went towards “thank-you gifts” for “supporters and staff.”

DARRINGTON, Wash.- As firefighter Jeff McClelland uncovered a body on the moon-like surface that blankets what used to be the community of Oso, he soon realized that the search party had a close connection to the victim: The dead man´s son and brother were among the volunteers scouring the debris field. The relatives sat beside the body as it was zipped into a bag. McClelland found himself overcome with tears. The discovery served as a touching reminder of the deeply emotional work that is playing out in this tight-knit town as rescuers like McClelland search for bodies in the muck

The Baghdad Bob of health insurance

A core competency of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is issuing false assurances that all is well with Obamacare. An administration about-face has left the Cabinet official looking like the Baghdad Bob of American health insurance. When Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas) asked her at a hearing two weeks ago whether the administration would extend the Obamacare enrollment period beyond March 31, she responded with a crisp and direct: “No, sir.” To the uninitiated, that sounded like an unmistakable denial of any intention to delay the enrollment period. The uninitiated were sadly misled. The secretary subsequently referred in her

WASHINGTON — In the days leading up to President Obama’s trip to Europe, the director of the Secret Service, Julia A. Pierson, sat down with the agency’s senior officials to reiterate a message she had focused on during her first year in the job. Although it had been nearly two years since several agents were caught soliciting prostitutes in Cartagena, Colombia, shortly before Mr. Obama arrived there for a summit meeting, Ms. Pierson said the agency remained under scrutiny. Agents should be reminded, she said, to be on their best behavior during the coming trip to Europe, where Mr. Obama

Even with more than two years left in his term, President Obama’s ability to fill many of his administration’s most important jobs is rapidly diminishing. White House officials are scrambling to reassess their confirmation strategy in the wake of two major setbacks this month: the Senate’s rejection of lawyer Debo Adegbile to head the Justice Department’s civil rights division and signs that surgeon general nominee Vivek H. Murthy could go down in defeat as well. On Tuesday, the administration appointed Karl Remón Thompson as acting head of the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel — bypassing the Senate confirmation process

Once again, MSNBC was maintained more of an interest in Clinton in the face of more pressing stories, accounting for considerably more segments and time spent on Clinton — though their numbers last week were still low compared to peak Clinton coverage of last month.

WASHINGTON —Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) plans to reimburse his campaign more than $16,000 for purchasing holiday gifts from his granddaughter´s jewelry business. The Federal Election Commission sent Reid’s campaign a letter last week asking it to provide more information about payments listed as “holiday gifts” on its 2013 year-end campaign finance report. The filing lists two payments in October 2013 to “Ryan Elisabeth” totaling $16,786.93.

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay.

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines.
