Love Pats == State Sanctioned Molestation

[CBS] Senators and TSA Defend “Love Pats” at Airports

Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri said prior to Pistole’s testimony that she believed TSA was in a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” situation, because people would be hopping mad at TSA if Christmas bomber Umar Farouk Adbulmutallab had succeeded. She went on to say the new advanced imaging technology–which has caused uproar because of its leave-no-secrets imaging and potential health risks–is more of a blessing than a curse.

“I’m wildly excited that I can walk through a machine instead of getting my dose of love pats,” Sen. McCaskill said.

Both senators and Pistole acknowledged the public concern that has made mini-celebrities out of some passengers who have opposed the new imaging scans and enhanced pat-downs. Pistole, a former FBI agent, went so far as to say he submitted himself to the pat-downs and found them to be “more invasive than what I was used to.”

Senator George LeMieux of Florida agreed they were invasive, saying they had gone too far and that he “wouldn’t want (his) wife to go through these pat-downs.” He even suggested looking more at the Israeli model of behavioral profiling in airport screenings, which has been largely successful but also criticized as racist.

So, illegally touching everyone is better than legally profiling terrorists.

[CNN] Obama looking for ‘whose ass to kick’

“I don’t sit around talking to experts because this is a college seminar,” Obama continued. “We talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers, so I know whose ass to kick.”

The Bribe of Barackenstein

The Monster Entitlement

[Michelle Malkin] The Obama way: Bluster, bully, bribe

The White House took great offense this week when conservatives suggested President Obama might be trading a judicial appointment for a wavering Democrat’s vote on his health care reform plan. “Absurd,” a miffed administration official told Politico.com. Wherever could the American people get such an impression? Let us count the ways.

On Wednesday, the very day President Obama hosted ten swing Democrats who had opposed the expansive health care takeover bill in November, the White House issued a press release trumpeting the nomination of Scott M. Matheson, Jr., to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. Matheson just happens to be the brother of Democrat Rep. Jim Matheson of Utah – one of the 10 invitees invited to sip wine and nosh on calorically-correct appetizers with the arm-twister-in-chief.

It just won’t stay dead, and now it brings corruption to the world.

Debtocrats: Surely drowning America in a way a "man-made" global warming can't.

Impressively Breaking Yet Another Record of Debt

Michelle Malkin: Debt deluge: Here comes the $1.6 trillion flood of red ink

Peter Orszag blogs this morning about the newly unveiled, $3.8 trillion White House budget: “The Budget lays out a plan to put the country back on a sustainable fiscal path.”

Via the House Republicans, this is what the Obama administration’s idea of a “sustainable fiscal path” looks like:


The WSJ breaks the debt deluge down further:

President Barack Obama will propose on Monday a $3.8 trillion budget for fiscal 2011 that projects the deficit will shoot up to a record $1.6 trillion this year, but would push the red ink down to about $700 billion, or 4% of the gross domestic product, by 2013, according to congressional aides.

The U.S. won’t drown from the “man-made” global warming. It’ll drown from the red ink courtesy of Mr. Barack “Spending Freezer” Obama.

Hope and Change = Hoping for some spare change.

Schemer, Tea-bagged

FOXNews.com: Schumer Pulls ‘Tea-Bagger’ Card on GOP Candidate Brown

New York Sen. Charles Schumer, who famously hammered then-Sen. Alfonse D’Amato for calling him a “putz-head” in their hot 1998 campaign, was accused Thursday of stepping into the gutter himself after he sent out a fundraising e-mail in which he called Massachusetts Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown a “far-right tea-bagger.”

New York Sen. Charles Schumer, who famously hammered then-Sen. Alfonse D’Amato for calling him a “putz-head” in their hot 1998 campaign, was accused Thursday of stepping into the gutter himself after he sent out a fundraising e-mail in which he called Massachusetts Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown a “far-right tea-bagger.”

The two-term Democrat, in accusing Brown of being aligned with the conservative “tea party” movement, used a term that every tea party critic knows refers to a sexual act.

Hypocrite much, Mr. Chuck “Tea-baggee” Schumer?

License to Slur (a.k.a The Democratic Party membership card)

What, No Beer Summit?

AP: Reid apologizes for ‘no Negro dialect’ comment

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada described in private then-Sen. Barack Obama as “light skinned” and “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.” Obama is the nation’s first African-American president.

The Masters of Political Correctness are never political nor correct in private, the Champions of Tolerance are intolerant away from the public eyes and the Liberal Left is not liberal nor respects no liberty.

Politico: Sharpton backs Reid

Another unsolicited statement, as Reid’s camp works frantically to put out the fire:

I have learned of certain unfortunate comments made by Senator Reid regarding President Barack Obama and have spoken with Senator Reid about those comments. While there is no question that Senator Reid did not select the best word choice in this instance, these comments should not distract America from its continued focus on securing healthcare or creating jobs for its people. Nor should they detract from the unquestionable leadership role Senator Reid has played on these issues or in the area of civil rights. Senator Reid’s door has always been open on hearing from the civil rights community on these issues and I look forward to continue to work with Senator Reid wherever possible to improve the lives of Americans everywhere.

Having a [D] next to your name really does give you a license to be bigots. Imagine the outrage if it were Harry Reid [R]


CBSNews.com: Harry Reid Gets Support from Eric Holder

Eric Holder, the nation’s first black attorney general, defended Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Monday over racial remarks the senator made about Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign.

Holder told The Associated Press that Reid is a good man, and as Holder put it: “I don’t think that there is a prejudiced bone in his body.”

Holder didn’t dare calling out Reid. What a coward! The Democratic Party is the party of cowards.

It’s all Boooosh’s fault (or Expired Statement Part 937)

National Review Online: The Obama/C-SPAN Lie

A reporter reminded the San Francisco Democrat that in 2008, then-candidate Obama opined that all such negotiations be open to C-SPAN cameras

There are a number of things he was for on the campaign trail,” quipped Pelosi, who has no intention of making the deliberations public.

In other words: HE LIED

Obama's SurrenderSmart Diplomacy: Epic Fail part XXVIII

Obama killed European missile defense for a promise that has already been denied. Quid pro quo non

Hot Air: Democrats to Obama: Um, what exactly are we getting for selling out Poland to Russia?

What are you getting? You’re getting the same thing you got when he sold out Honduras to Chavez over that non-coup “coup” they staged: The warm fuzzy glow of knowing that George Bush would heartily disapprove.

But some members of Obama’s own party, however, had a simple question for the administration: if this was a return to realism, and a concession to Russia’s long and vocal opposition to the missile program, what, exactly, was the U.S. getting in return for fundamentally changing it?

And almost certainly, the answer leads back to Iran…

But Russia has given no ground on those questions, with Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov bluntly opposing tougher sanctions. And Medvedev suggested Thursday that any new American political capital would be more likely go toward the longer-term Obama Administration goal of deep cuts to the two countries’ nuclear weapons stocks…

Paraphrasing Yoda: Bad America leads to apologies. Apologies lead to Reset. Reset leads to unilateral concessions.

AP: Eastern Europe grumbles about downgrade in US ties

PRAGUE – Scuttling a missile defense shield in the Czech Republic and Poland helps smooth relations between the U.S. and Russia. But at what price?

Some of America’s staunchest allies are the East Europeans — and on Thursday, they expressed dismay at what many see as a slight after decades of their support for the U.S.

Among them were some famous names, including Lech Walesa, the former Solidarity leader and Polish ex-president. “I can see what kind of policy the Obama administration is pursuing toward this part of Europe,” he said ruefully, adding: “The way we are being approached needs to change.”

But that is the standard operating procedure for Obama. Abandoning and insulting America’s greatest allies while bowing and surrendering to the demands of autocrats and dictators (especially the socialist and Islamic kinds).

Gibbs's CelebrationBrought to You by the D’oh-bama Administration: A Catastrophe to Celebrate

Gibbs should quote Homer Simpson on that: Whoo-hoo!!

fromthepen.com: Robert Gibbs Celebrates U.S. Financial Collapse (Video)

Okay. I’m not sure why anybody would “celebrate” the collapse of our financial system unless they were very eager to take control of it.

Personally, I would have “mourned” the collapse.

You know who “mourns” these types of collapses Mr. Gibbs? Tea Party protesters that showed up in Washington this weekend, that’s who.

Isn’t it neat how the words people choose to use say a whole hell of a lot about their ideology?

Never. Waste. A. Good. Crisis. [Rahm’s words of wisdom]
