In this episode:
Barack Obama tells an astonished Bob Schieffer that he does like the give and take of politics, citing passing his health care scheme, which ironically was possible only because the democrats controlled both houses of Congress. He also took the opportunity to whine again about his being an outsider with a funny name.
Even denizens of 24/7 televised insane asylum know that Harry Reid is a disaster. It’s ridiculous for Reid’s chief of staff to talk to smack about the One after the election, which granted was a referendum on him, but Reid can’t escape blame for being an evil man who has destroyed the Senate. He also has a history of shady deals done to benefit his four sons and his son-in-law going back decades.
After Cpl. Nick Cirillo was murdered by an Islamic maniac, brave Marine steps up to guard the Canadian War Memorial.
Questions for Obama’s choice to replace Eric Holder as Attorney General, Loretta Lynch; specifically, what about Lois Lerner? She’s been held in contempt of Congress. Doesn’t 2 U.S.C. § 194 require the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia to present the contempt citation to a grand jury? Does she share Eric Holder’s belief that requiring a photo ID to vote is an attempt to suppress voting by minorities? What about her role in shaking down Citibank, and blaming financial institutions for the disastrous housing bubble, when in fact they were forced to reduce lending standards by people who share the view of Eric Holder and Barack Obama that America must be held to account for its irredeemable racism?
Last Wednesday, in a court filing in the case brought by Judicial Watch, the IRS admits that it actually didn’t look everywhere for those missing Lois Lerner emails.
The day before the election, Eric Holder’s Department of (In)Justice dumps 64,000 pages of information about Fast and Furious, including some very interesting emails. In one, Holder refers to Rep. Darryl Issa (R-CA), who has doggedly pursued the case, and “his idiot cronies,” and in another, he says some people can “kiss my ass.”
U.S. Supreme Court agrees to hear a case from the 4th Circuit, raising the issue of whether people who purchase health insurance from an exchange run by the federal government, and not one of the states, can receive a federal subsidy, something that is clearly at war with the language of the Obamacare statute. Liberals attempting damage control are characterizing the clear wording of the law as a “typo,” which is patently ridiculous. The legislative history makes clear that the writes of the Obamacare scheme were trying to use these subsidies as carrots to get the states to set up exchanges.
How many times did Ronald Reagan put the line “Tear down this wall!” back in his 1987 Berlin speech, after East-Coast brain rot afflicted advisors kept scratching it out, fearful that it was too “confrontational?”
What are the most popular political insults that people like to hurl at conservatives? At liberal? You will be very surprised.
