Congress Is Confused Too

It's not just Obama.  Nobody seems to know what he's doing when it comes to our kinetic involvement in or around or above Libya:


I'm embarrassed for my country.

Glenn Reynolds:

"Libya is a 'dumb war' — because it’s halfhearted, half-assed, and run by committee, and the President can’t even articulate the national interest involved. Obama the candidate said he was smarter than that. Obama the President is proving the candidate wrong."

That's about the size of it.

They'll Never Connect The Dots

And they wonder why the MSM has lost all credibility.

Chicago Bleeds

And the one man most responsible for stopping the rampant crime wave that is destroying it talks about slavery as being the root cause.

For the love of God:
McCarthy: NRA, Palin a part of 'government-sponsored racism'
By Adam Zielinski, WLS

Chicago (WLS) - Chicago's new top cop says the accessibility to firearms in America is an extension "of government-sponsored racism" that goes back to the days of slavery and Jim Crow.

Speaking to parishoners at St. Sabina Church earlier this month, Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy took to the microphone after Father Michael Pfleger spoke about gun control.

McCarthy said the topic of race is a sensitive issue "because everybody's afraid of race" but that he wasn't afraid to broach the subject.

"So here’s what I want to tell you. See, let’s see if we can make a connection here. Slavery. Segregation. Black codes. Jim Crow. What, what did they all have in common? Anybody getting’ scared? Government sponsored racism."

"Now I want you to connect one more dot on that chain of the African American history in this country, and tell me if I’m crazy. Federal gun laws that facilitate the flow of illegal firearms, into our urban centers across this country, that are killing our black and brown children," he said.

"The NRA does not like me, and I’m okay with that. We’ve got to get the gun debate back to center, and it’s got to come with the recognition of who’s paying the price for the gun manufacturers being rich and living in gated communities," McCarthy said.

McCarthy illustrated his point by recalling a crime scene investigation while he was a police official in Newark, New Jersey where five children were shot, two of whom were killed. McCarthy said when he got home, he turned on his television to unwind and found an episode of "Sarah Palin's Alaska" showing.

"She was caribou hunting and talking about the right to bear arms. Why wasn't she at the crime scene with me?" [link]
This man may be the stupidest person I've ever come across.

And he's now in charge of the Chicago police department.

Chicago, where a Republican hasn't been mayor for eighty years.

And where the citizenry seems perfectly happy with its murder rate.

Why else accept a dolt like Garry McCarthy as guardian to their children and grandchildren?

Quote of the Day

On Obama's gift of oratory, James Taranto:
True, Obama was persuasive enough to get elected president--but that was with a hapless opponent, a dour nepotist as his intraparty rival [jf: that would be Hillary], a public fed up with the other party, and a media-driven cult of personality.

Part of that cult of personality is the myth that he is the World's Greatest Orator, a myth the Times evokes with its hazy recollections of times when he was "highly persuasive." When was he highly persuasive? When he sold the public on the so-called stimulus and ObamaCare? When he campaigned for Democrats in 2010? When he rallied public support for his last change in Afghan policy, an increase in the U.S. troop presence?

The truth is, there's an Emperor's New Clothes aspect to Obama's supposed status as the World's Greatest Orator. 
Explains a lot.

The NY Times Is Pathetic

How does one write a report and not include one of the most important details about about the story being reported on?


The New York Times: All the news that's fit to print that they want you to know.

Devious?  Or simply cowardly.  You decide.

Phil Puckett, Fighting For ... What Again?

I received the following email from my state senator, Phil Puckett, a Democrat:
Dear Jerry,

I want to thank those of you [jf: there's only one of me] who signed my coal petition. I've sent these signatures on to our representatives in Washington. It's important that Washington knows how vital the coal industry is in our everyday lives, and that they don't do anything to harm the thousands of Virginians who work every day to keep the lights on across the country.

I want to talk a minute about this year's elections. I will have my first opponent in twelve years, and I'm not taking any chances. That's why I'm hoping you can help me out.

If you can make a contribution of $10, $25, $50, or whatever you can afford to my campaign, it would go a long way toward helping me continue to fight for Southwest Virginia.

You can also help out by telling your friends and family about the work I'm doing, and encouraging them to sign my petition. I'll continue to deliver these signatures to our representatives.

Thanks for your support.

Sincerely,

Phillip Puckett
Virginia Senate, District 38
Let "Washington know how vital the coal industry is in our everyday lives"? That's it? Not Let's clean house? Not Let's stop those in the Obama administration who work tirelessly to do Southwest Virginia grievous harm? Not We need to declare war on the EPA?

Does Puckett honestly think his buddies there (including Mark Warner and James Webb) give two squirts about the many families of the coalfields who are now being thrown into despair by those same buddies' very own machinations?

Please. Just ask for a campaign donation to keep your sorry ass in office and leave it at that. Don't insult us.
