Gotcha Moment

Part of the transcript …..

Jessica Yellin. Congratulations, your first question here.

Q Thank you, Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT: No pressure. You’re going to do great. (Laughter.)

Q Thank you. Your administration has laid out four different dates by which you’ve said that the debt ceiling must be raised or the U.S. would face potential dire consequences. Three of those dates have come and gone and we haven’t faced financial calamity. Some of your critics have argued that these are then scare tactics to force a deal. So why should the American people believe that the August 2nd deadline is the final deadline by which a deal must be raised? And would you also spell out for us what you believe will happen if the debt ceiling is not raised by that date?

THE PRESIDENT: Jessica, let’s be clear. We haven’t given out four different dates. We have given out dates that are markers for us getting into trouble. It’s the equivalent of you’re driving down the street and the yellow light starts flashing. The yellow light is flashing. Now, it hasn’t been a red light yet. So what Tim Geithner has said is, technically speaking, we’re in a position now where we’re having to do a whole bunch of things to make sure that our bills are paid.

He’s not even on the road to salvation.
Great job, Jessica.

Opposite Day

Trouble is, the POTUS without his TOTUS likely wishes it was Groundhog Day so he could at least have a shot at trying not to say what he did last Thursday at Fort Drum.

“… he said that SFC Jared Monti was “the first person who I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually came back and wasn’t receiving it posthumously.” Alas, he was mistaken. He awarded the Medal of Honor to Jared Monti posthumously in 2009 and awarded the Medal of Honor in person to SSG Sal Giunta in person in 2011.”

When is he going to actually prepare for an extemperaneous speech?

Sheesh, way to go POTUS. Get a speech writer, will ya?

Hot And Bothered

The POTUS. Apparently, he went ballistic after Israel PM Netanyahu’s anti-suicide response to Barak’s plan for Bebe’s homeland.

You know, if our President loses his temper like this over an ally (still? Goodness, Bibi, please know that more Americans are on your side than not), why would we expect him to look out for our own best interests?

Remember November 2012.

Maybe, just maybe, this story is merely a story.

And yet, this morning The Jerusalem Post reports that Israel received an “ultimatum” from the US that negotiations with the Palestinians should resume.

To add a little fuel to the fire, BO appears to be losing a majority of the youth vote. Hhhmmm.

FB No Like TP

Censorship, sounds like. Doesn’t matter how incremental it is accomplished.

If FaceBook chooses to implement policies that eventually restrict politics from their (his) site, then when does it stop being a social platform?

And isn’t the Tea Party exactly a social body? Yes? Bueller?

Another Lawsuit Against AZ

By the NLRB, the National Labor Relations Board.

If you believe in a secret ballot, then you should know that the NLRB is not on your side.

Surprise.

LEAKED: Obama Executive Order Intends to Implement Portions of DISCLOSE Act

It really is amazing — they lost in the Supreme Court, they lost in Congress, they lost at the FEC, so now the president is just going to do it by edict.

Read the whole thing. Now.

Executive Orders should be abolished and past orders negated. This is no way to run a (high speed) railroad.

Losing Control and Freedom on the Internet

Sure sounds that way from this article.

So, when and how strong will we tell the Obama Administration to leave it as it is?

And we thought our identities and accounts and security were under attack before …….

Please Leave A Message

In an exclusive interview with The Brody File, Sarah Palin criticized President Obama for his handling of the situation in Egypt saying that this was his, “3am White House phone call” and, “that call went right to the answering machine.”

Heh.

Conclusively, An Idiot

You know who. That Mostly Stupid Nitwit Broadcasting Crap – Chris “Tingle” Matthews.
Apparently, he’s equating the unrest in Egypt with the Iraq War.

Must be Alzheimer’s kicking in.
