Huma-nizing Weiner (Also not a Natural Born Citizen)

huma-anthony-nyt

I don’t disagree with my friend Thomas Lifson, publisher of The American Thinker, about Huma Abedin’s performance yesterday, after the cringe-inducing revelations about her husband Anthony Weiner aka “Carlos Danger,” at least not about the positive PR she gained by standing by her man, and speaking up Hillary-style (Seriously.) Thomas wrote:

Money can’t buy the kind of political boost Huma Abedin is receiving. Like her mentor Hillary Clinton, the stand-by-your-man strategy will be her gateway to widespread popularity and respect.Don’t feel sorry for the Democrats over losing a former rising star politician like Anthony Weiner, whose future is so hopeless that even the New York Times says it’s time to go. They have gained an even more promising candidate for high office. Huma Abedin is better-looking, better spoken, and more appealing than her role model. Yesterday’s performance (“whole lotta therapy”) was superb, establishing Ms. Abedin as dignified, strong, and starting to look as American as apple pie.

It’s great to be a liberal woman, and not only get a pass for enabling your sociopathic, sexual reprobate husband in treating other women like disposable toys, but getting praise for your “dignity,” and automatically being vaulted into the lead for high office.

Thomas is also right about her ability to do some serious fund raising, although one has to wonder how revelations about her family’s Muslim Brotherhood ties might cut into contributions from the Jewish community.

Here’s where I disagree with Thomas. Huma’s parents weren’t American citizens at the time of her birth, and therefore, like Ted Cruz, Bobby Jindahl, and, yes, Barack Obama, she is not an Article II “natural born citizen.”

Although raised in Saudi Arabia, Ms. Abedin was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, a natural born American.

In any case, it’s hilarious to watch New York liberals scrambling to pretend that they are offended by Weiner’s behavior, including the Liberal Death Star aka the New York Times, now whining that he should withdraw from the race. It was just last year that they wrote a slobbering profile of Huma and Anthony, all about how repetent the former congressman is, and how he and Huma repaired their marriage.

Some things never change.

Stick a Fork in It. Obamacare, Not Your Half Brother. Show Notes, 11/25/12

Caller Shirley Husar, columnist for the Washington Times communities, weighs in on the need for the GOP to reach out to black and Latino voters, and stressed the need for direct, personal contact in local communities.

My unfortunate encounter with the officious intermeddling know it all know nothing at a big box retailer on Black Friday. I wanted to say “Dude, you can’t carry my jock when it comes to computers, so please put a sock in it,” which is probably why I remembered Woody Allen’s longing for a sock full of horse manure while in a movie line listening to some pontificating, insufferable gasbag.

Speaking of insufferable gasbags, Barack Obama’s lifelong dream of federal government takeover of health care, thereby giving the power of life and death over every American may not be a done deal after all. The genius of the Founders strikes again. Sec. of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius generously extends the deadline for states to set up health insurance exchanges, which may not really be as generous as it looks, since even though the deadline for setting them up was supposed to be 11/16/12, but the regulations telling the states what constitutes a plan with “essential health benefits” weren’t released until 11/20/12. Gee, Obama and his band of merry Marxists rammed this scheme through Congress over two years ago. Why would they wait so long to issue regulations?

But that makes life difficult for states and industries that need to prepare for the coming changes.”)

Unintentionally hilarious story from the Stanford University paper in which professor proves with a poll done in conjunction with the AP that if Americans really knew what was in Obamacare, approval of it would go from 32% to 70%. Unfortunately that’s only if what’s really in it is misrepresented.

What does Obamacare actually do, you ask? You’re not alone, says Stanford pollster.

Useful idiot of the week, documentarian/taxpayer mooching Ken Burns, praises the joys of government and once again demonstrates his obsession with race on “Meet the Press.” I guess I can’t blame him for being enthusiastic about government, since he’s gotten rich taking money from it.

MS-NBC Screamer Chris Matthews waxes about freedom in a moronic promo filmed at Mt. Rushmore, giving me an opportunity to straighten out another confused liberal, who thinks that the administration of the death penalty and the decisions that will be made by the Obamacare rationing board, the IPAB, are morally equivalent. My work is never done.

As we well know, the Left cannot debate issues, which is why they rely on the Cult of the Personality and character assassination, hence the demonization of Marco Rubio, which has already begun.

The Critiquelator takes on deranged, race-obsessed professor who asks “What if Barack Obama were a white man?” Wait-isn’t he?

Thanksgiving was always my favorite holiday, which is why i HATE the media obsession with showing people acting like crazed maniacs on Black Friday (and now even on Thanksgiving Day) over great deals on smartphones and flat screen TVs. Is this really necessary in life? Meanwhile, a Maryland woman stabs her half brother with a serving fork on Thanksgiving. The story didn’t say what the fight was about. Did he take the last piece of pumpkin pie?

Benghazi Rice-a-Roni: Will the GOP Have The Spine to Expose the Coverup? Today on the Teri O’Brien Show

Democrats, both elected and unelected, the latter sometimes called “journalists,” are spinning a modern day version of the fairy tale “The Emperor’s New Clothes.” Unfortunately, unlike the cautionary children’s story, in this case, 4 Americans were murdered, and our “leaders,” and I use the word “leader,” loosely, are trying to convince adults with functioning eyes and brains that the obvious did not happen; specifically, that the White House did not deliberately send out its politically compliant U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice out to lie to the American public from a posture of willful ignorance. Will the GOP have the spine to expose this coverup or will Barack Obama roll them again?

In what is a perfect metaphor for the destruction of the America we grew up in, Hostess Brands announces its liquidation, thanks to the demands of union thugs. Bye bye 18,000 jobs. Whose side do you think Obama was on? Not only is his repellant wife no doubt delighted by the demise of Hostess, so is he, since these laid off workers are natural members of one of his voting contingencies.

Mitt Romney’s post-election comments have the Left apoplectic. Their reaction is over the top, but they are right that his remarks were LAME. If Bobby Jindahl doesn’t want to be part of the “stupid party,” why doesn’t he try offering a principled conservative rebuttal?

Tune in today for the rest of the story.
