In an interview with The Associated Press, Pahlavi equated the climate of the unrest in his homeland with the "revolutionary atmosphere" that preceded the fall of his father from the Peacock Throne 30 years ago, when the monarchy was replaced by an Islamic republic.
In the letter Pahlavi urged the U.N. chief to press Iran to release those arrested and act to "halt the intolerable and increasingly dangerous march of events." The letter was given to the AP Thursday.
Pahlavi said that recalling ambassadors would be a "minimal but clear indication" by U.N. member states of their support for the rights of Iranian citizens and objections to violations of these rights by Iranian authorities.
"This is not about me. I'm not here to advocate anything but ... freedom and democracy for the Iranian people at first and I've determined this as my unique mission in life."
Still, he acknowledged that "I carry on my shoulders the historic weight of an institution that I may potentially represent."

(video report via FoxNews below)
HONOLULU — Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh was taken to a hospital after suffering chest pains and was resting comfortably Wednesday, his radio program said in a statement. "Rush was admitted to and is resting comfortably in a Honolulu hospital today after suffering chest pains," the statement said. "Rush appreciates your prayers and well wishes and will keep you updated via rushlimbaugh.com and on his radio program."I hope Rush gets better, we need him to fight the good fight!
Kit Carson, Limbaugh's chief of staff, said he had no further information on Limbaugh's condition.
As I was browsing different articles trying to obtain as much information as I could about Rush’s condition, I was disgusted by the lib-tard medias reports and bias. Without fail, almost every article includes garbage relating to his past which has no significance to this story. Even more disturbing were the comments posted by obvious left-wing-nutties. Twitter has also been full of activity as the crazy’s use this opportunity to bash him. Whatever your views on Rush or for that matter ANYONE with whom you disagree, HAVE RESPECT.
When it comes down to it, it exhibits a level of classlessness. Conservatives, for the most part, do not use their disagreements to attack their opponents in the same personal manner as liberals (not all liberals but as a generality), its not even close. Most conservatives would wish the other person well by stating something along the lines of…Though I don’t agree with so-and-so and we've been political foes in the past, we wish him well.

Obama needs to come out stronger than ever in denouncing the current regime in Iran, preferably using the same ferocity and passion he uses to scold his political opponents. What will it take? How many times does the regime have to reject Obama before he understands that negotiations are impossible when dealing with impossible people. The United States has always stood for freedom in the past, its pretty pathetic that it has taken this long for him to come out but like Krauthammer, I refuse to clap and thank him for his statement. Its long overdue and was lacking. Get it together.

Watch the video below as Michelle Malkin discusses the appalling information regarding School Czar, an Obama appointee, Kevin Jennings. Recognize that she has to be restrained regarding the amount of detail she can discuss as television has certain regulations in which she must abide. On the other hand, it’s nice to know that television has such regulations but apparently children don’t, 14 year olds are supposedly old enough to be introduced to sexually explicit lectures and instructions on methods to insert certain…(ah can’t even go further than that, it’s that bad!). Let’s just say that they are calling this scandal “fistgate”. Kevin Jennings needs to get…and quickly! As more information surfaces on his past endeavors, affiliations with organizations, or statements made referencing his ideology, it is non-negotiable; he needs to get to steppin!
The Washington Times had an editorial piece on Kevin Jennings appropriately titled 'Obama's risky-sex czar'. They had to place a warning before the article to caution its readers about the contents. Come on, when the Washington times has to place a disclaimer…ITS THAT FREAKIN BAD. Here's the disclaimer and portions of the article...
WARNING: This editorial includes discussion of topics that are sexually graphic.
Under usual circumstances, we would never entertain these subjects or the rancid language involved. In this case, however, a very unusual exception must be made because the issues are central to the background of a senior presidential appointee at the U.S. Department of Education who is in a position to influence how and what our children are taught in our nation's schools. Thus far, out of fear or squeamishness, there has been public hesitance to examine closely the beliefs of this individual because many are afraid even to touch the risky content. Our scruples cannot be used against us when traditional moral precepts need to be defended. Simply, the deep level of depravity involved in this subject cannot be portrayed without providing a couple of examples to illustrate the inappropriate content. Please do not read any further if you will be offended by sexually graphic language.
They go on to reveal some disturbing information;
The Obama administration is stonewalling serious inquiries about sexual filth propagated by a senior presidential appointee who is responsible for promoting and implementing federal education policy. Democrats clearly are terrified of ruffling the feathers of their activist homosexual supporters, who are an influential part of the Democratic party's base. This scandal, however, is not merely about homosexual behavior; it is about promoting sex between children and adults - and it's time for President Obama to make clear that abetting such illegal perversion has no place in his administration.
The conference discussions were very graphic and cannot be relayed in full detail in a family newspaper. A few examples are sufficient to describe the depravity of the subject matter. During one session about oral sex, a presenter asked the 14-year-old students: "Spit or swallow? Is it rude?" In another session, the 14-year-olds are taught about a gross practice called "fisting," in which "the man leading the discussion position[ed] his hand and show[ed] 14-year-olds how to insert their entire hand into the rectum of their sex partner."
As the article points out in the conclusion, neither the administration nor Obama himself has come out answer questions. Concerned parents and citizens have a right to know what the heck is going on and why this administration would appoint a man with this background to this position.
Are we being Punked?!

McCain's wondering (as we all are) where the transparency is and why C-SPAN is not present as promised...
Saturday, December 5, 2009
This is not the first time that this has happened and beyond it being something amusing to observe, from what I remember about body language, this gesture is not uncommon. I’m not directly referring to flicking off people, though I’m sure that is quite popular as well. I was referencing the whole head itching flicking off movement, which has now occurred on numerous occasions. Each time, the act came upon hearing the name of a rival or a fren-enemy.
For most people, this is a subconscious gesture signifying the hatred/dislike/anger of the person doing it and the person whose name they are mentioning. This makes absolute sense considering the first time Obama did this it was upon hearing Hillary’s name, then McCain’s, and now mayor John Callahan who by the way was a supporter of his opponent Hillary Clinton. Each of us has our own expressions that we exhibit unintentionally and can really provide insight as to how we truly feel. Obama's rhetoric is obviously pleasant because it has to be but body language says it all.
Whether Obama is conscious of his little flip scratch thing, I can’t really say but I can tell you that his head was not itching. Take that to the bank…jk
(Okay I just rewatched it and I'm so right! Pay close attention, not to words but to expressions, they’ll show everything, no matter how hard someone tries to hide it. He def. is holding grudges! That is too funny!)
I posted the videos of Obama flicking off McCain and Hillary below...
Notice how the crowd cheers after he flicks off Hillary...I'm beginning to think that it may be intentional. What do you think?

Btw...He did it on MSNBC no less, he aint scurredd! Go ahead Senator!
The President excluded, the White House Press Secretary is the 2nd most visible person within an administration. Obama's Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, has been probably one of the worst in recent years. He is delusional, confused, clueless (or portrays as such), even worse, he tends to be very confrontational. He speaks as if he is above everyone. You may ask a totally reasonable question, instead of answering or declining to answer, he thinks he's on a comedy stage and it’s 'The Gibbs Show'.
APRIL RYAN: Did she invite herself to the state dinner or was she a guest of, did the President invite her, or did she put her name on, no, that's a real question, do not fan at all.
ROBERT GIBBS: I, I, Jonathan?
RYAN: I'm serious. No, seriously? Did she invite herself or did the President ask her. Her name was on that list and social secretaries are the ones who put the names on the list.
RYAN: Did she invite herself, or did the president--
GIBBS: Right, was she at the dinner? April, April, calm down. Just take a deep breath for one second. See,this happens with my son. He does the same thing.
[reporters in the briefing room: Oooooh!]
RYAN: Don't play with me!
GIBBS: I'm not.
RYAN: I'm being serious. Do not blow at all.
GIBBS: And I'm giving you a serious answer. Was she at the dinner? Yes.
RYAN: Was she an invited guest?
GIBBS: She's the social secretary. She had the primary responsibility--
RYAN: No, social secretaries are not guests of the dinner.

Though he is the topic of conversation and attacked brutally by the media relentlessly, he manages to be quite successful. Beck is doing it big with two bestsellers on the NY Times List, his show on Fox News is num. 2, he is successful in his radio program, his ‘Bold Fresh Tour’ is sold out, and his stage show, “The Christmas Sweater – A Return To Redemption..LIVE!” which is playing in selective theaters around the country. Not to mention, he is the man responsible for outing Van Jones and other WH commie lovers like Anita Dunn.
Whatever your thoughts are on Glenn Beck, he is indeed intriguing. His personality is unlike any other. What I enjoy most about him is that he doesn’t seek the approval of others which allows him to be forward and real. He will tell you what he thinks without reservation and you may or may not like his opinions but you should respect that rare quality. My only issue with Beck is his continuous bashing of the Republicans as if they are equivalent to the Democrats, I understand what he is inferring but when you have to choose between mediocre and awful (awful referring to Dems of course), you definitely want mediocre. The Republicans are not supporting the Crap & Tax bill or the devastating Health Crap Bill. That’s an enormous difference in my book and one to praise!
Btw…Sarah Palin is also included in Wednesdays Barbara Walters Special.
(Walters is a total lefty but she sure knows how to pull in viewers for her special! A very smart move on her part as it guarantees her ratings to double if not more)

Three months ago, I joined a number of Americans in urging President Obama to provide the resources necessary to achieve our goals in Afghanistan. Tonight, I am glad he mostly heeded that advice.
At long last, President Obama decided to give his military commanders much of what they need to accomplish their mission in Afghanistan. In the end, he decided to endorse a “surge” for Afghanistan, applying the counterinsurgency principles of “clear, hold and build” that worked so well in Iraq. Given that he opposed the surge in Iraq, it is even more welcome that he now supports a surge in Afghanistan.
This approach means, as Senator John McCain has noted, that “We now have an opportunity to build a bipartisan consensus in support of a vital national security priority: defeating Al-Qaeda and its violent extremist allies in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and ensuring that these countries never again serve as bases for terrorist attacks against America and our allies.”
We should be clear, however, that fewer troops mean assuming more risk. Talk of an exit date also risks sending the wrong message. We should be in Afghanistan to win, not to set a timetable for withdrawal that signals a lack of resolve to our friends, and lets our enemies believe they can wait us out. As long as we’re in to win, and as long as troop level decisions are based on conditions on the ground and the advice of our military commanders, I support President Obama’s decision.
What was the point of the speech...as always Obama contradicts Obama.
- Stop blaming the previous administration for everything. Your the President. YOU CANNOT PICK AND CHOOSE...YOU CANNOT TAKE CREDIT FOR ALL THE VICTORIES BUT BLAME OTHERS FOR THE LOSSES.
- He was asked for 60,000 troops but at the minimum 40,000...how did he come up with his 30,000 number? Why are going half-way? Why are you micro-managing the war when you have a competent general?
- How do you announce a surge but then set a date for withdrawal? That gives our enemy some assistance. Why is he playing politics with the lives of our brave men and women in the military?
- You don't insult and undermine their President in public at a time like this, you do it behind the scenes but you don't bash them when the whole world is listening. Why would you delibertly undermine is authority. Reprimand when the doors are closed.
- Why did he infer that we are "occupying" their country? Is that what he really thinks?

Michael Graham questioned Laura Flanders, "Are you literate?"
Did she really quote Alan Grayson?
On numerous occasions (well just about every day since I seem to be surrounded by libs) Ive found it quite difficult to hold a genuine debate or engage in a back and forth because our arguments are defended on different levels. While I seem to be defending my stance with facts, the other side throws some crap at me about emotional nonsense. It’s not that I don’t care about feelings or I’m a cold person, its quite the opposite. The point is, you cannot base arguments on emotions, it’s utterly ridiculous and beyond that, passing laws or creating policies based on such emotions guarantee the formation of additional difficulty rather than solving the problem. Decisions based on emotions fail to consider the outcomes. Everything is a trade-off, solutions are essentially non-existent. It's a Fallacy.
Michael Graham was clearly frustrated as she was trying to make an emotional plea, confusing the truth for her version of it. Whatever makes her feel good...because remember, for the left, that's the most important thing.

Obama has managed to spend more than any President before him...double!
Via Fox News;
President Obama has shattered the budget record for first-year presidents --spending nearly double what his predecessor did when he came into office and far exceeding the first-year tabs for any other U.S. president in history.
...compared with other presidents' first years in office, Obama is running circles around them.
It’s obvious that Obama does not care for history as he is repeating the devastating years of the Carter administration’s policies to the tenth degree.
Unless things change (quickly), continuing on this current trend only prolongs the recession. Even more worrisome, their compulsive habit of printing money is doing nothing more than securing one thing…not confidence which our markets need, instead, it secures the probability of inflation occurring. Add this to the list of the “change” we were promised.
(I tried to warn people that change is an empty word as it fails to imply anything more than something different. Repeatedly, I urged people to understand that change can be good but change can also be very bad. Is it worth the risk? Monday morning quarterbacking, was it worth the risk?)
Here’s what I find odd. As a President, you are written about daily, is he not over himself by now? Have there not been a countless number of features and articles written by their fans, oops I mean friends in the media fawning over him and Michelle.
Humility is one of the most important characteristics a leader/President needs to have and yet this President has not exhibited an ounce of it thus far.
What if Sarah Palin were holding a magazine about herself? The press would have a field day!
This is just embarrassing and speaks volumes. It’s not this one incident, it’s after analyzing a series of behaviors and actions that has caused me to draw this conclusion (so don’t even try)!

Recently Newsom dropped out of the gubernatorial race and hasnt been happy since. The usually media-hungry Mayor has been acting really shy, avoiding the very people he used to run to when he needed his exposure.

So, SNL opened with a C-SPAN press conference with Obama (played by Fred Armisen) and Chinese President Hu Jintao (played by Will Forte). The Chinese President grills Obama on his reckless policies about spending, he questions Obama and says (sarcastically of course), “To save money involve spending even more money”…
Like I said, jokes are funny when they touch on a piece of reality. This one was based on the fact that during Obama’s trip to China he was basically ignored. Instead the Chinese (imagine that) lectured us (really Obama) on economic policy. They’re even worried about the size of his healthcare plan especially disconcerting in such a bad economy and double digit unemployment numbers. This skit touches on two key points (among many others). The first being that Obama has driven up our debt, continues to do so, and doesn’t really seem concerned which has caused uncertainty and fear. Secondly, Obama seems to have adopted this policy of weakness and this false sense that a weak, obedient, bowing President somehow is a plausible strategy. When has this ever worked? Why isn’t it working now? The Chinese didn’t seem to care and in fact, were even less receptive to Obama. The town hall which was supposed to be an unfiltered group of college students turned out to be filled with communist youth leaders. Additionally, China continuously refuses to get tough on Iran.
BTW, because I don’t really watch CNN, does anyone know if they have started fact-checking this skit as they did with the last one (ha who fact checks a skit…what a joke. Like that’s a really loserish thing to do). Maybe AP has put 10 reporters on this as they did with Palin’s book?
Seems like SNL is stepping in the right direction which is about a third of the way to reaching the frustration of the American people.
This skit might just be an indication to the end of Obama’s honeymoon with his fans in the Press.
As a final point, I would like to add that I found the whole bending over parts of the skit to be distasteful. Whatever my issues with is policies, he is our President and that was crude.

Description...a response to Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize for having accomplished absolutely nothing, oh except double-digit unemployment numbers. (If anyone tries to argue that the recession would have been so much worse, that he is working on it, or the most asinine BS argument where they deflect their own issues on to George W. Bush, I might just scream. Here's the thing, I’m sorry, I didn’t ask to be President...I’m assuming that he knew it would be a very difficult job before he began campaigning. If this was the first month of Obama’s presidency then fine, but almost a year in...It’s the Obama Recession now)
( I think its quite honest and very revealing)

According to Plouffe, former Presidential nominee John Edwards, made an attempt to cut a hush-hush sneaky deal with both his opponents. Edwards tried to offer his endorsement (as he was coming out of the race) in exchange for the Vice Presidential spot on the ticket. The book proclaims that the Edwards campaign presented their offer right before the South Carolina primary. In other words, his support was for sale as he would have gladly marched behind either Hillary or Barack, so long as they had given him the number 2 spot on the ticket. It goes on to say that Obama chose not to take any deals and received Edwards’ support anyway.
“This was the pitch: ‘Listen. It's clear unless the race is shaken up, Hillary is going to win. You guys might not even win South Carolina. What would shake the race up is John ending his campaign, but not simply to endorse another candidate. All things being equal, John prefers Barack. They should announce they are joining forces and will run as a ticket. Edwards can vouch for Obama with blue-collar and Southern whites and is running on a change message.’”
Plouffes account of his conversation with Obama regarding the Edwards offer;
"Obama's answer was quick and firm: he would cut no deals."
This is why I also take issue with his staff as they displayed a severe lack in judgment. (I often have to remind myself that we are not all alike and just because I may not crave power and control; there are many others who do and work continuously towards this goal)
& another one...
This time in China to President Hu Jintao.
Why would you not bow to royalty, say the Queen of England but go around in a bowing frenzy when etiquette does not require you to and certainly not if your President. As former VP Cheney said, a President is not required, nor is he expected to bow. As I mentioned in the previous post, not only is it humiliating but the perception is more detrimental than anything else. His toe touches give the impression of weakness.
Tuesday, November 17, 2009
The photograph of the President bowing down to the Japanese emperor was indeed embarrassing. The fact is, if embarressment was the only issue then we’d still be humiliated, perplexed, and slightly worried as to why protocol has unexpectedly changed but it would not be a focal point of discussion (among all the other changes, not for the better). If the implications didn’t exceed past embarrassment, the issue would not garner as much attention as it has. Problem is, in international relations every gesture, movement, word becomes significant. Supplement this with the fact that the world is paying attention and that a foolish act, such as bowing, suggests weakness and it becomes a greater issue than just humiliation. Not to mention that proper etiquette in Japan suggests the bow itself to be improper and even perceived as "mean".

I’m confused, is he President of the U.S. or China?
Also, why must he go around apologizing for the U.S. all the time!? The apology tour began at 12:18 am eastern this time, not long before his speech began! He brought up the civil war, women’s suffrage, issues with immigrants being embraced, and “separate but not equal” treatment of African Americans.
He also brought up himself as he always does! He made it clear that” someone like me” 50 years ago would have trouble even voting.
Let me make this incredibly clear, I don’t want to pretend that our history never occurred…our history, the good and bad are real parts of the American story. I’m proud that we work hard to right the wrongs of our past and never do I want to forget our mistakes. We are doomed to repeat it otherwise. Moving on, we don’t have to have our President be the one to point out our biggest flaws, specifically while speaking in another country! It’s absolutely absurd. This is not the first time and I expect it will not be the last!
Interesting that he did not bring up human rights! Well it was not surprising but it sure as heck is sad that we aren’t that beacon of light anymore for freedom seekers.
…He shunned the Dalai Lama during his visit to D.C. and now he is once again bowing down, this time to China!

And the protests in Iran still go on…
The people in Iran seem to have boycotted the Iranian soccer game in Tehran's Azadi Stadium. It has been estimated that only 100 people showed up even though the regime attempted to draw in more fans. Iranians love their soccer, so the fact that the stadium is virtually empty speaks highly of the dissatisfaction with the regime! So take that you evil dictators!If this is not evident of the resiliency of the Iranian people…I don’t know what is! If you’ll remember this past summer, droves of people in Iran came out in protest against the fraudulent election results. They are still going strong.
Following the events in Iran, I'm blown away by the courageous Iranians that have been protesting the regime since June. The people’s protests against the mullah-cracy have been non-violent while the hard-line regime has responded by brutalizing, imprisoning, abusing, and torturing their own people. It’s truly sick and what makes the situation worse is the fact that Pres. Obama seems unconcerned even while the Iranian people have begged for him to speak up or fail to recognize the regime as they are not representative of the people. Instead, Obama has seemed eager to work with the brutal regime. Obama’s actions since the election amount to spitting in the face of the people of Iran who are begging for a taste of freedom. I am truly ashamed of the behavior of our government. We are supposed to be freedom supporters. He doesn't have to meddle if he doesn't feel that its an appropriate course of action, whatever , at this point I don't really care but I do care that you are meddling by supporting a brutal regime knowing that they appointed themselves without the approval of the people. Recently, during a protest, the people told Obama, you're either with us or with them...Obama must decide, what side does he want to align with...liberty or tyranny?

John Edwards’ campaign started shriveling away after his public hair embarrassment incident. Having already been dubbed the 'pretty boy', though I have no idea why but I guess you can’t figure out other peoples bizarre attractions, when this tidbit was leaked to Ben Smith at Politico, the story stuck as it validated the perception that already existed. Another reason the story hit his campaign pretty hard was because of his rhetoric and the foundation in which he chose to run on. His whole thing was the division between the rich and the poor as if it were a boxing match and he was cheering on the poor. Well when you're getting $400 haircuts and you claim to be such an advocate of the poor, it kind of looks suspect. No, it really is suspect! At that point, you don't seem as if you're cheering the poor, instead it looks very much like you're using the poor...which the left does all the time but that's a lesson for a different day!
Who tipped the media? Obama's campaign. David Plouffe, Obama's campaign manager, revealed in his new book that they were behind the leak. Surprising...not so much? Obama has always been the king of opposition research...after all he wouldn't have been elected to the Senate if he hadn't dug up dirt on his opponents.
You know...I don't agree with Dobbs on everything but his show was actually one of the more tolerable ones on CNN!

Let’s be honest, her answer at the pageant was not the most articulate. In a previous post made on this subject, I wrote that I understood why her answer would come out a little awkward as she very well could have been nervous knowing that her answer would be controversial, specifically while responding to an openly gay judge. Again, I thought the question itself was inappropriate and the judges’ reaction was inexcusable. So she went on to make appearances and then made more appearances…blah blah. It was way too much. I also found her to be speaking off talking points as if this is the message her publicist gave her so she would repeat the same lines over and over without being able to offer real substance. On the other hand, I did think that she made a good role model for those young girls, especially conservative girls who are afraid to go against their friends views and stand up for what they believe in or what they believe to be right. I’m around Carries age and even now it’s hard for me to be completely blunt about my positions or how I feel about Bush or Cheney because I know what lies ahead of me if I dare express my views. For me, it’s not that I’m scared because I can speak up and I can go at it with the best of them if necessary, it’s just that I don’t feel like dealing with the hostility all the time. In that sense, I am glad that Carrie went around speaking up and letting everyone know that it’s okay to speak up and though the left was beating her up, she was still okay.
That being said, when the topless photos came out…it changed things slightly. I’m not trying to be a hypocrite because we all have some kind of stupid stories from our teens and twenties (hopefully not naked pictures); I just think that her role model status becomes a bit tarnished. She came out and apologized, said that she didn’t know the photographer snapped these in between the real photo shoot where she was covered. Do I take her story as truth? I don’t really care…We’re all allowed a few stupid mistakes so long as it doesn’t harm anyone else. So we moved on.
Today we found out that TMZ has uncovered a sex tape of Carrie Prejean from a few years back. Apparently Carrie sent a video of…umm…herself with herself to her ex-boyfriend. I acknowledge that this must be difficult for her; I can’t really say that I have empathy for her situation. Can you feel sorry for someone who sends a sex tape to a boyfriend or do you think they should’ve known better? On the same day she’s releasing a book about the pageant incident and how she is still standing after or something like that…who knows?
Okay, so if you knew that a video like this exists and people were out to get dirt on you, wouldn’t you hold off writing a book? I’m kind of torn on this as I don’t think that her past has anything to do with her treatment and questioning during the pageant or afterwards but on the same note, whether you admit it or not, we all judge each other and this sheds a different light on her or speaks about her values. She came on Hannity tonight taking full responsibility…yadda yadda yadda but once again, I know talking points when I hear them and it definitely seemed like she was given advice on how to handle and approach this topic when interviewed. She is hoping to get in front of the story. It’s obvious that her lawyer or publicist (whoever she has advising her on media relations) told her that Americans like when people apologize as they are forgiving people so long as someone admits to the mistake.
I’m sorry but I don’t find her to be genuine and I can’t pinpoint the exact reason…
So maybe I should change the title of this post because I am on the fence about this…I’m not sure anymore! What do you think? Should she just go away or are you glad that she is speaking up?

We also need to applaud conservative pundits and politicians who have stepped it up and endorsed Hoffman. He has a very good chance to win and the polls are actually closing in as people are paying more attention.
Now I’m hoping that Dede drops out but because I don’t think that I can count on that, I’m glad that Sarah Palin, Michelle Malkin, Sean Hannity, Fred & Geri Thompson, and many other have stood up and spoken out.
To the republican establishment that thought they could get away with this..ha ha! (Yes, I realize that’s a bit childish but deserved)
Here’s Fred Thompson’s ad supporting Hoffman! Go Fred!

Ken Cuccinelli (R), candidate for Virginia attorney general, came out on top after a recent debate against opponent Steve Shannon (D). During this particular debate format, candidates are given an opportunity to ask a question of their opponent. Ken Cuccinelli went first and asked Shannon to name each division of the AG’s office and explain what each does. If you are running for a specific position and asking your constituents to trust you, the least you could do is to research your would-be responsibilities and duties in that job. It would be one thing if you attempted to answer the question but the fact that Democratic candidate, Steve Shannon, avoided the topic all together shows his inability to properly prepare for such a position. Shannon always regurgitates the same message to the media having to do with Ken needing on the job training (which is absolutely ridiculous since Ken has experience as an attorney, small business owner, and on the legislature). Seems like Shannon doesn’t even know what the job entails! What’s that about on the job training Mr. Shannon? Yeah, try again.
I’ve met Ken Cuccinelli and I can personally tell you that he is a genuinely good guy who really cares about Virginia. If you add that to his record of standing up for the constitution and being fearless in his pursuit of doing what’s right, Cucinelli takes the cake!

The same company that created the Barack Obama action figure, Jailbreak Toys, designed the Michelle Obama action figure. The company believes that Michelle will do even better than the Barack action figure which sold about 200,000. Like I said before, I don't understand why anyone would want this but then again, Obama-mania is an illness and being obsessed with all things Obama is one of the prevalent symptoms.

As you can imagine, CNN is on the WH ‘nice list’ unlike Fox News who is on the ‘naughty list’, who would of thought the President and Santa have something in common (bad joke...in case you didn’t get it, they have the lists in common…ha ha). After all, they are the network that fact checked the SNL spoof on Obama! Take note, how to get on the good side of this administration…display your willingness to promote the President and administration, even though you may be risking credibility and public embarrassment. Example… a major network fact checking a comedy routine. In their defense, maybe they didn’t know it was a parody?
Anyway, do they think that crying about unfavorable coverage will cause the public to sympathize with them? Someone should advise them to halt any future whining sessions. I pity anyone who has to hear this lady daily, talk about irritating! I don’t mean to be unkind but I want my 9 minutes back.
Question...were any of these people present or paying attention to the news in the past few years? Compare Bush's treatment to Obama’s and you will notice the incredible difference in coverage. Most of the media is in love with Obama while the coverage of Bush was hostile and disrespectful. The things that were said and done to him were an absolute embarrassment to the journalistic profession. It’s interesting that the same people who are crying foul now are those very same people who not only did not support Bush during the war, they were vicious and nasty. In some respects, I am happy that it happened because anytime these people want to whine to CNN or some other left-leaning news organization, I just think back to the treatment of the previous administration. Since the word ‘fair’ is thrown around by the left constantly, let’s be ‘fair’ and give Obama as much respect as was given to Bush. Though that would be fair, thankfully, we are not as disrespectful as the left. That being said, I don’t care if the President is a Republican or Democrat, I have every right to disagree with his policies and can choose not to support his plans! Furthermore, doing so does not make me racist so don’t pull that bullshit with me!
In the clip she admits to punishing Chris Wallace by skipping his show on the Presidents healthcare tour. On a totally different note, Britney Spears is trying to catch up to the President number of tours! Seriously, this guy is played out and it hasn’t even been a year yet.
The grab for state-run media is in full swing. Get ready folks…it begins with this, first they punish any dissent, then net neutrality which is socialism for the internet (which by the way has also begun), and last but not least…talk radio with the unfairness doctrine. We elected someone from Chicago, the city with one of the worst records of political corruption and now we are experiencing the methods in which they use to defeat their opponents. They use their powers, influence, money, or whatever to take them out of the game. Got to love the Chicago way!

I may be wrong because I don’t have the same access CNN has to worldwide information but I’m pretty sure that there are important things happening around the world that need some light shed on. If they were that hungry to fill their news slot then I’m sure they could have covered something news-worthy, say the protests and fraud still going on in Iran…maybe?
So CNN was already losing credibility but I’m afraid it’s declining at a faster rate than once thought! Last I checked, CNN was trailing behind Fox News (as always) but surprisingly, CNN was even behind MSNBC!

Sounding a bit temperamental Harris repeatedly questioned the decision,
"Chicago is out?”…“Chicago is out?”…“Wait a minute. Chicago is out?”
How dare they turn him down!
“Some of my best memories are sitting on my dad’s lap, cheering on Olga and Nadia, Carl Lewis, and others for their brilliance and perfection.”
Carl Lewis' first Olympic try was in 1984 which would make First Lady Michelle Obama 20 years old at that time. Unless she was still sitting on her fathers lap at 20 years old watching the games, which is doubtful, I think its safe to assume that the story is false. (insert Joe Wilson outburst here..."You Lie").
It seems like the Obama’s have no problem with lying as long as it is useful at that given moment to serve their purpose. Obama himself has also recalled stories in the past, on the campaign trail specifically, that didn’t quite match up on the timeline. I’m not trying to pick on the Obama’s and its def not for any other reason that a lie is a lie and it has now been pointed out. That’s all.
(the fib takes place from 1:10 - 1:20, just in case you wanted to fast forward to it)

"Settle down. If you came here tonight for sex with a talk show host, you've got the wrong studio."
"I'm happy to say that I've never had a sexual relationship with any of my staff members." (As a band member throws down his drumsticks and storms off stage).

During the CNBC interview with Reich discussing the large unemployment numbers, he actually claimed that;
"the stimulus package is the thing that is actually keeping the economy up, keeping people employed."
Sure the Vice President made the same outrageous claim but that’s good ol' Joe...we know he is not a rational person. It’s understood that all his comments be ignored. Unfortunately, as an advisor to the POTUS, you’re supposed to have some credibility or at least pretend to if you’re going to be defending the administration on the news. Maybe next time, he could start with a lighter joke…one that’s not so funny seeing as how Americans are losing their jobs. Unemployment numbers came out today showing that unemployment is at a 26 year high…Still think the stimulus is working?
You know, when the VP or even worse, the Presidents own economic advisor, make statements like this, it’s awfully offensive. This is the advisor of economic policy to the POTUS and if they think the country is in good shape and the stimulus worked then this administration and President are more off than I could have ever conceived. Is it stupidity or is it plain arrogance or maybe they just don’t care? It’s the era of “hope and change” folks. Half the country took the bait and now the whole country is paying for their naivety!
This administration and democrats in congress need to forget about healthcare and fix the economy! I mean this is infuriating! Then again, how dare we bore the administration with real issues like this when he’s got better things to do…like make a plea on behalf of his corrupt cronies in Chicago to the Olympic committee! Which I may add…failed at that too!
What is it going to take for them to pay attention…or is it just maybe exactly what they want? Rahm Emmanuel, chief of staff, proudly exclaimed that a good crisis should never go to waste! I hope this is not true but every day I’m moving closer to that conclusion until I’m given a reason not to…like a plan to fix the economy. This time, if they do present a plan, we hope they will take it seriously! We want a real proposal, one that has the ability to work! Instead of creating a so-called ‘stimulus’ bill and throwing money at your political allies as payback, lets present real ideas like lifting the burden on small businesses in order for them to hire more workers. Small businesses provide 2 out of every 3 jobs in our country. Why are the unions more important to the President than small businesses who should have been the focus of the original bill? I’m sure you can answer that question yourself.
Additionally, we could suspend federal income taxes for 3-months so that the money goes directly into everyone’s pocket in order to “stimulate” the economy since that’s what a stimulus is supposed to do.
It is clear that this President has all his priorities screwed up!
Is this how the Obama-loving media are going to report today's terrible economic news: it would be worse without the stimulus package, and it will only get better if we pass healthcare reform?
