Fifth Column RINO’s

Just a few months ago, this guy was in consideration as Mitt Romney’s VP. How does this happen?

By accepting the provision included in President Barack Obama’s health care law expanding federal Medicaid funding, Ohio Gov. John Kasich joined four fellow Republican governors in welcoming part of a program their party has campaigned vehemently against.

Kasich isn’t the first Republican to sign on to the Obamacare provision – he joins Jan Brewer of Arizona, Brian Sandoval of Nevada, Susana Martinez of New Mexico, and Jack Dalrymple of North Dakota in endorsing the Medicaid expansion. In total, 19 states and the District of Columbia will accept the expanded federal funds.

It’s good to see the Peter Principle alive and well.

On a related front, I listened to Hannity, that annoyingly self-aggrandizing simp, bleat on about Karl Rove and how he leaked to the New York Slimes his plan to end-run the TEA Party. Then a commercial played for Rove’s group. Now, I don’t know if it was a local or a national spot but it certainly played. And no, I won’t link to it.

It looks as though the Grand Plan is to give Obama everything he wants and then blame him for the collapse of society.

Good luck with that.

Sound Familiar, Governor Brewer?

This morning, the media is abuzz over  Barack Obama’s tarmac kerfuffle with Gov. Jan Brewer yesterday. Apparently, the One is not amused with something in the governor’s book, Breakfast with Scorpions. From Politico:

“I said to him that I have all the respect in the world for the office of the president. The book is what the book is. I asked him if he read the book. He said he read the excerpt,” she said, according to a pool report. “He didn’t feel that I had treated him cordially. I said I was sorry he felt that way but I didn’t get my sentence finished. Anyway, we’re glad he’s here. I’ll regroup.” …

The pool reporter, POLITICO’s Carrie Budoff Brown, said the scene was far from the norm. Aside from the pointing, they appeared to talk over each other and he appeared to walk away from her while they were still talking.

Brewer said the president brought up the book.

I couldn’t help but remember our interview last year with Prof. John Lott, author of More Guns, Less Crime.

Prof. Lott is currently at Yale, but for a time he was at University of Chicago, at the same time that Barack Obama was an adjunct lecturer. He told us that the one thing that impressed him about Obama was “his unwillingness to talk to people he disagreed with.” He goes on to describe two encounters with the former Illinois State Senator, both of which ended with Obama rudely turning his back on Prof. Lott and walking away.

Sound familiar, Governor Brewer?
