Is it surprising as to why Deeds wouldn't want o interview on National Television? Uhh probably not considering that he has done horrible in both debates thus far and as my previous post shows, he cant even figure out his own tax plan (because he doesnt have one)!
(Ill post the video clip or transcript as I get it)

Some Republican lawmakers and the insurance lobby are crying foul over Medicare’s investigation of Humana Inc.’s effort
to enlist beneficiaries to fight proposed cuts to Medicare Advantage.
“It looks likes CMS is engaged in government intimidation, pure and simple,” said Rep. Dave Camp of Michigan, the top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee. He wrote to CMS (the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services)today, requesting it to “immediately suspend the virtual gag order.”
House Minority Leader John Boehner of Ohio also said CMS imposed a “gag order.” “It is outrageous that the Obama Administration is trying to keep seniors in the dark about the consequences of congressional Democrats’ costly government-run health care bills,” Boehner said in a statement. “Would the Administration impose this sort of gag order if seniors were being given information promoting the Obama health care plan?” Medicare Advantage plans, the private insurance plans offered under Medicare, the government program for the elderly and disabled, are targets for cuts in heath care overhaul legislation because they cost more, per beneficiary, than traditional Medicare.
On Friday, CMS said it was examining whether Humana violated Medicare marketing rules or other federal laws, and asked the company to shut down a Website that helped beneficiaries generate letters to lawmakers opposing the cuts, and to stop sending letters to beneficiaries enlisting their support in the fight.
The agency sent a letter on Monday to all plans, warning them not to send letters about the proposed cuts and called the effort misleading to beneficiaries.
The action came at the urging of Democratic Sen. Max Baucus of Montana, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, who has proposed Medicare Advantage cuts that are estimated at $123 billion over 10 years as part of his health overhaul legislation.
A spokesman said Humana has complied with CMS’s requests and is cooperating with the investigation, but it still believes beneficiaries “deserve to know the impact” of the proposed funding cuts. A spokesman for America’s Health Insurance Plans, the industry trade group, also said “seniors have a right to know.”
Hows hope and change going for you? What happened to our first amendment rights? What now, shutting down speech of anyone who opposes Obama or any of his policies? I guess the whole country is part of the MOB!

During the Democratic primaries in Virginia, Creigh Deeds virtually came out of nowhere. After winning the Washington Post endorsement and voila, he became the Dem nominee (for those who do not live in the DC/VA/MD area, the Washington post can play a heavy hand during elections which is most unfortunate).
Deeds’ campaign lacks substantive information on specific plans and how he is going to go about implementing the promises made in campaign speeches and debates. While the Deeds campaign seems to have the support of the lib media (mainstream media), I don’t think they can continue to prop him up. He needs to step it up! The problem is, I just don’t know if that’s possible for him to do.
Hmm…I wonder, has Wash Po called Deeds out for responding to the reporter, “young lady”, which was said in a condescending way? Highly doubt it. They had their victory last time by smearing George Allen with his “Macaca” moment and now they’re trying to go for 2-0.
This very well may be the Chicago thuggery political way but we don’t want any of that in DC!

1. Democrats know best
2. If you don’t like what you hear, walk away
3. Ignore constituent criticism
4. The best defense is being offensive
5. Speak with conviction
6. Say it, don’t spray it
I’m sorry, I didn’t realize that we live in the Soviet States of America where we imprison those whom disagree with the views of the powers at be. Disagreement and debate have always been a healthy part of American discourse.
Let’s be honest, Carter is certifiably nuts. What more is there to say? After what this man did to Iran and the United States during his four years of presidency, the worst 4 years ever, he should be hiding under a rock in shame!
I’m glad McCain was blunt and was not afraid to address Carter! Im sick of politicians on the right who all seem to be wimps when it comes to responding to the big bad ol' Dems.

I’m fighting tears too…tears of joy at the very thought of you and your cronies someday ousted out of my wonderful, historical city. More importantly, one can only hope that you’ll stay out of politics for good.
You are a fraud and there’s one more thing that I was going to write but it just slipped my mind…Oh yeah…YOU LIE!
BTW...She meant left-wing violence (thats what she remembers from the 70s)!

VMA Awards | Taylor Swift Disrespected (update) VIDEO added & Picture of Jackass (update) Beyonce Reacts; (update) Apology From K 'Jackass' W
The first award was handed out to Taylor Swift for the ‘Best Female Video’. Naturally she gets on stage and begins speaking, saying something along the lines of I can’t believe I won, I always wanted one of these…Before you know it, Kanye 'Jackass' West runs up on stage out of NOWHERE and grabs the mic from her to say that Beyonce had the best video (Beyonce was one of the nominees). The crowd booed him, Beyonce looked a bit shocked, and Taylor Swift was stunned and unable to finish speaking. MTV then cut to a Tracy Morgan monologue and directed her off stage.
How much more of an ass could you be? The world already knows that Kanye 'Jackass' West is a arrogant fool but it is now apparent that he has some kind of inability to filter himself.
Though I do enjoy the Jackass' music, he is an ass and needs to really reevaluate his actions…that was unacceptable and hurtful to Taylor Swift who has worked hard for that moment which you took away and can’t give back.
If I were able to, Id ban Kanye 'Jackass' West from further award shows as he has exhibited the inability to conduct himself in a respectable manner, not only for tonight’s action but his actions on previous award shows and live shows.
Update - (VIDEO added)
I love it, everytime Kanye 'Jackass' West is mentioned, the audience BOOS! P-Diddy got booed for mentioning his name and the crowd started chanting "TAYLOR...TAYLOR...TAYLOR"! It was great! P-Diddy pretended that he was unaware of the debacle before and asked the crowd "What'd I do?" as he tried to conceal his laughter.
Maybe this is why the Jackass ran on stage? Perhaps he should put that Hennessy bottle down and lay off the alchy for a while...a longg while!
It has also been reported that he left the VMA's after that moment so unfortunetly, he didnt get to hear the crowd boo him several times! Its fine, Im sure he's going to hear about it!
Beyonce, in an amazing gesture of kindness, wins a VMA but instead of giving an acceptance speech, she calls out for Taylor Swift and hands her the mic allowing her to finish from earlier. Beyonce said that she could remember being 17 and winning her first MTV award. She recalled it being “one of the most exciting moments of my life” so she wanted Taylor Swift to be able to have that full experience. Taylor swift then came on stage, hugged Beyonce and said “maybe we could try this again?”…
I thought that this was incredibly gracious and not only allowed Taylor to have her moment but because of Beyonce’s act of compassion, she has earned herself great publicity and even more fans. To be honest, I was never a fan of her music and really felt whatever about her. After tonight, how can I help but not like her?She is definitely a lady and others should take note!
(Last Update...I hope) Here's the Video of Beyonce giving Taylor an opportunity to re-accept her award)
Update 5 (The Apology)
To make matters worse, unnamed sources said that Taylor Swift came off the stage in tears and was crying backstage...nice one Kanye, nice! Making little girls cry now, are we? What happened to keeping your ego in check?
via K 'Jackass' W blog, his apology/non-apology;
“I’m sooooo sorry to taylor swift and her fans and her mom. I spoke to her mother right after and she said the same thing my mother would’ve said. She is very talented! I like the lyrics about being a cheerleader and she’s in the bleachers! …………………… i’m in the wrong for going on stage and taking away from her moment!……………. beyonce’s video was the best of this decade! I’m sorry to my fans if I let you guys down! I’m sorry to my friends at mtv. I will apologize to taylor 2mrw. welcome to the real world! everybody wanna booooo me but i’m a fan of real pop culture! No disrespect but we watchin’ the show at the crib right now cause well you know! i’m still happy for taylor! Boooyaaawwww! you are very very talented! I gave my awards to outkast when they deserved it over me…that’s what it is!! i’m not crazy yall, i’m just real. Sorry for that! I really feel bad for taylor and i’m sincerely sorry! Much respect!!”
Okay so is this really an apology? Dont you hate when people say "sorry...but"! It takes away from the apology and your back to where you started from. Is he mocking her for her lyrics because then he goes on to say that Beyonce had to the best video of the decade. He has every right to his opinion but it goes to show how arrogant he is that he thinks his opinion should be the last word, enough so that he thinks he is allowed to attack the stage and yank the mic from her hand. How many times is he going to do something ridiculous and offensive? When appearing on Live TV trying to raise money for Katrina, he blurted out that "George Bush does not like Black people". Though this may be his opinion and he may share it with as little or many people as he feels necessary, was that really the place to do it? Was it responsible? (I personally think his statement was incorrect and irresponsible to make an allegation of such magnitude, specifically during a fundraiser of all places. It was stupid, just like all of his other shannanigans)
Also, last year at the awards show, like a 2 yr throwing a temper tantrum, paraded on stage crying about not winning an award! This jerk had the nerve to say, "If I dont win, this award show loses credibility"
Oh and how could I forget his meltdown caught on camera backstage. Apparently he wasnt pleased with performing in a suite instead of on the main stage during the award show...
I would just like to know who he thinks he is? Puhlease! Get help and not from that Hennessy bottle!
What are your thoughts? Let me know if you agree or disagree!

Initially I found the outburst by Rep. Joe Wilson to be slightly disrespectful but upon further consideration, while it may not have been the most appropriate course of action, I don’t think it’s this grand hoopla that the democrats have created for themselves. The more that they complain and cry about it, I find my opinion strengthening in the opposite direction.
During this crisis that this Congress and administration has put us through, you expect me to really feel bad that someone is bold enough to come out and tell the truth during a hour long promo for the President? He is a freshman congressman, someone please tell me how he was supposed to get his point across and get attention, more importantly, attention from a media who works for the administration?
Additionally, the Democrats behaved far worse on numerous occasions during the Bush presidency. So what the Dems are essentially saying is that it was okay for respect to go out the door for about 8 years during Bush’s term but rule change for Obama?
You know what…Sometimes you just have to scream to get people to listen, particularly when the cause is important enough, you get a free pass!
GO JOE! The only elected official who was bold enough to speak up!
Contribute to his campaign…like NOW!

Let me ask you a question, the President, on this forum took a shot at Sarah Palin. He called her a liar. Tell me what the difference is? I don’t think a President should stoop that low to hit someone who disagrees with his plan, who by the way is correct in her assertion…Read the bill if you don’t believe me (that goes for you to Mr. President). He’s a bully. Out of all the pundits that have disagreed with him, he went after her…So really, it may have been “rude” for Wilson to scream out the truth and insult the President but what’s the difference between what he did and what the President himself did. The President contradicts himself all the time. He talks about civility and discussion but he then proceeds to bash the Republicans, present false information about their positions, and leaves them out of the discussion. He has the gull to say that the Republicans don’t have a plan which once again (surprise, surprise) is a big fat fib! Too bad their bill was in their hand, if the President would take a minute to stop campaigning and pay attention to anyone but himself he would take notice. Also, why is he continuing to turn his back on the American people in order to pass a bill he says is urgent yet won’t go in effect until 2013…Suspicious? Chyeah!

I just want to know because I missed the first couple minutes...Is it just me or did First Lady Michelle Obama look angry tonight? Maybe she had other plans that she had to give up in order to attend her husbands speech? Who knows...maybe I'm wrong? Maybe she has a bad migraine as I do, afterall we are both in D.C and I think the weather is effecting mine...
(Because I cannot resist...Regarding his address to congress, I can point out at least 1 wrong fact, lie, or incorrect statistic in every sentence!)

I’ve always questioned the rationale of Liberal policies. It just doesn’t make sense! I’ve never understood how they knock down the real victim to stick up for the aggressor. They don’t believe in a “right” or “wrong”. Libs are the supposed compassionate ones but their policies directly contradict that.
The video below is from Pajamas Media and features Alfonzo Rachel on “Zonation”. Its absolutely great!
It truly exhibits the difficulty in debating with liberals or having a logical discussion on their policies because their arguments lacks logic! I don’t mean to offend anyone but it’s like dealing with young children who do not think of the results of their actions. You need someone to be the big bad mean parents who don't mind making tough calls even if it means that they are going to be disliked.
As he says, “Don’t be scurred now left wingers, open your mind and see what I’m talking about”!
Overall the number who Strongly Approve has fallen from 43% in January to 30% in August. During that same time frame, the number who Strongly Disapprove has grown from 20% to 39%. Those numbers translate to a Presidential Approval Index that has declined from +23 in January to -9 in August.Of course the healthcrap bill and the manner in which Obama handled this situation encouraged the decline in his approval numbers but the cause of the drop is not entirely limited to just that. Overall the American public is unquestionably angry and even more so, frustrated with this administration and Congress. They are calling on their representatives, many of whom they voted for, to pay attention to their views on a wide variety of issues, the most pressing at this present time being the proposed healthcrap bill which would overhaul the whole health care system for the worse. Instead of having these representatives, supposed public servants, treat their constituents with respect and listen to their legitimate concerns (or in the very least, they could pretend to listen), they treat them like barbarians and proceed to name calling as if they are 2 year olds having a temper tantrum.
Also in August, the President’s total approval fell below 50% for the first time.
Its not too difficult to imagine a politican...say Barney Frank for example...jumping up and down, screaming “wahhh I want my healthcare bill to go through but they are being mean to me and wont let me have it…It's all mine! Wahh, they wont give me all their money…its MY money. I know how to spend it better than they do. They don't even know what's good for them. They're stupid and meaniess”.
These concerned citizens are now the enemy and they’ll stop at nothing to tear them down. For the first time this administration and politicians on the left are running a smear campaign, not against any organized group or corporation but against the American people. Apparently, they think we are stupid enough to believe that these stay at home moms who are worried about their families future and health are mob members. CHyeah ohhkay!
At any rate, its not difficult to understand why Obama’s numbers have been dwindling away and whats more, the Republicans have a pretty good opportunity to grab seats in the midterm election…that is if they don’t screw it up!

Van Jones, special adviser for green jobs at the White House Council on Environmental Quality, resigned Saturday, following weeks of pressure from the right and a flurry of revelations about his past statements. "I am resigning my post at the Council on Environmental Quality, effective today," Jones said in a statement dated Sept 5 released around midnight on Sept 6."On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me.They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide," he continued. "I have been inundated with calls -- from across the political spectrum -- urging me to 'stay and fight.' But I came here to fight for others, not for myself. I cannot in good conscience ask my colleagues to expend precious time and energy defending or explaining my past. We need all hands on deck, fighting for the future."
Wait did he really just say that people are spreading lies and trying to smear him? Did he not do that for himself? When in doubt, play the victim card!
You got to love how they release this statement on a Saturday night around midnight! People are busy during the weekends, they watch less news, not to mention this is a holiday weekend so everyone is on vacation!
Okay so this is one down, how many more of these radical advisers are left? Oh about 35 more!
Here's the full resignation letter from Van Jones:
"I am resigning my post at the Council on Environmental Quality, effective today.
On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me. They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide.
I have been inundated with calls - from across the political spectrum - urging me to "stay and fight."
But I came here to fight for others, not for myself. I cannot in good conscience ask my colleagues to expend precious time and energy defending or explaining my past. We need all hands on deck, fighting for the future.
It has been a great honor to serve my country and my President in this capacity. I thank everyone who has offered support and encouragement. I am proud to have been able to make a contribution to the clean energy future. I will continue to do so, in the months and years ahead."
If you discuss the current situation with someone who has immigrated to the United States from a country where freedom was only a dream and/or socialism, they’ll tell you how they are familiar with this format of stacking the chips in the governments favor. The truth is not relevant, what is important is the truth they want us to believe (i.e busloads of supporters brought into the town halls from around the state).
These people are experts at deception. After all, these people belong to the same party that somehow fools millions of minorities into believing that they actually stand for them when all evidence points to the contrary.
Who's really the angry mob?
