Plus: “Obama dozed, people froze.”
The blanket with sleeves!
Before we get to tax cheat Tom Daschle, let’s recall the names of the Bend Over Republicans who pooh-poohed Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner’s tax troubles and accused critics of “thinking in small political terms.” On the Senate Finance Committee, B.O. Republicans Mike Crapo, Orrin Hatch, John Cornyn, Olympia Snowe and John Ensign all determined that […]
Playing with fire.
For those of you interested, the balloting is taking place on the Republican National Committee chairmanship. Incumbent Mike Duncan just pulled out. Lots of conservatives breathing a sigh of relief. But who will take over? Hot Air is tracking. Stacy McCain is live at the RNC. And up-to-the-second reports on Twitter. Just search #rnc or […]
Border security you can’t believe in, via the AZ Star: The flurry of fencing erected along the U.S.-Mexico border in the past three years by the Department of Homeland Security has cost more than expected, a government report shows. The 140 miles of pedestrian fencing put up under the Secure Border Initiative prior to Oct. […]
MoveOn.org hasn’t moved on yet from demonizing Rush Limbaugh. He responded to their latest attack ad last night on Mark Levin’s show. Radio Equalizer Brian Maloney’s got the scoop.
Stimulus slush fund for housing entitlement thugs by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2008 From tiny acorns, mighty government debacles grow. House GOP Leader John Boehner on Monday rightly sounded the alarm over billions in stimulus tax dollars that could potentially go to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. But the Republican leadership […]
I don’t call them squishy, bend-over Barack Obama Republicans for nothing. Here’s the roll call vote on the massive S-CHIP expansion, funded with a huge tobacco tax increase that will hit the working poor the hardest in hard times. Nine Republican Senators joined the Democrats to shove the universal health care Trojan Horse through. The […]
“An act of generational theft;” Update: Ugh. Not another Gang of 14! Update Corker’s office clarifies
The Right stuff…and the wrong stuff.
There has been an interesting uptick in the usual volume of hate mail. I sense a disturbance in the Obama Force. The nutroots aren’t happy with how the Generational Theft Act debate is playing out. They’re impatient with the pace of Revolutionary Change. And they really, really don’t like that Fox News hasn’t been shut […]
They’re creative. They’re important. And they’re almost as big as the military, so hand them more money and quit complaining! Here’s the NEA’s plea for a piece of the stimulus pie — a plea paid for, of course, with your tax dollars: There has been much public conversation recently regarding the role of the arts […]
“It ain’t about me.”
Obama’s thermostat setting: “He likes it warm;” Prediction: Mrs. Obama will shop for cardigans today
A bouquet of eco-hypocrisy.
Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti On Monday, I noted GOP House Speaker John Boehner’s warning about the ObamACORN funding provisions in the House version of the Generational Theft Act of 2009. As expected, the slush fund/payback program for the left-wing fraudsters is still in there. Here’s the direct link to the section in H.R. 1. And […]
“New era of responsibility?”
Good morning! My eyes are open, but I’m not quite awake yet. Know what I’m talking about? Brain should catch up with eyeballs soon. In any event, I’m scheduled to appear on Fox & Friends this morning at around 8:15am Eastern. I think we’re talking about this, but that could change.
If you’d like to leave a message for the House Republicans and the 11 Democrats who voted against the Generational Theft Act of 2009 this evening, here’s an open thread! Show them some love. Give them an incentive to keep acting responsibly.
I’ve been doing a lot of B.O. (Barack Obama/Bend Over) Republican-bashing the past few weeks. Watching the Republicans crumble on the Geithner and Holder nominations, swoon over The One’s congeniality, and display indecision over the stimulus hasn’t been easy on the stomach or the head. But credit must be given where it is due. Today […]
Apropos of my discussion with Glenn Beck this evening, Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison introduced a border enforcement bill to help hard-hit communities deal with narco-terrorism. Drop in the bucket. But better than nothing: U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX), today filed The Border Law Enforcement Relief Act of 2009, S. 339, which would create a […]
I’ll be on the Glenn Beck show on FNC in the 5pm Eastern hour to talk about border disorder.
A GOP Hill source e-mails the latest field notes on the House debate over the Generational Theft Act of 2009: –General debate on the Trillion Dollar Spending Bill is wrapping up. House now moves to about 2 hours of debate over the amendments. –To keep track of roll call votes on amendments, go to http://repcloakroom/ […]
