This Is So Not Nice

But the truth sometimes hurts.

Rooskies Screw Up Obama Foreign Policy

One thing's for sure.  Our president isn't going to take John McCain's advice and invade Syria.  Not now.  Not unless he plans on taking on the Russians with the 82nd Airborne:

Russian Anti-Terror Troops Arrive in Syria

Those Russian troops are there to support the regime Obama opposes.

Is The Prince of (Nobel) Peace ready to take on the Suhoputnye voyska Rossiyskoy Federatsii?

Expect Hillary to announce a round of sanctions to be imposed.  That's the strategy laid out to defeat Iran.  The strategy that has been in place for decades ...

The War On Women Continues

I think Rush Limbaugh is behind this:

Oprah Winfrey's OWN Lays Off 30 in Network Restructuring

What if her network folds?  What will Oprah's thirty regular (female) viewers do?

Obama Nation

"If you're complaining about the price of gas and you're only getting 8 miles a gallon, you know, you might want to think about a trade-in."
-- Barack Obama, one year ago --

Complaining ain't the word, there, Marie Antoinette:

And a Chevy Volt ain't the answer.

Obama needs to free up the oil industry.  And now.

But ... But ... But ...

Bristol Palin Asks Obama 'When Should I Expect Your Call' Concerning Maher's Remarks About Me?

She's Right About That

The president's spouse hit this one on the head:

First Lady: 2012 ‘Will Determine Nothing Less Than What Kind of World We’ll be Leaving for Our Children’

Without doubt.

If her husband wins reelection, our children are destined to be paupers in adult life.  See the debt - so far - that her husband is leaving the young 'uns to pay.

And, lest we forget, ObamaCare kicks in fully in 2014.  Expect catastrophe on that front too.  Our children will grow up not knowing what the greatest health care delivery system had been.

A lot depends on 2012.  We can fix the mess this woman and her man made or we can hand our children certain doom.

Can Tim Kaine Be Believed?

I'd ask the man for an explanation, but I'm not sure that would be believable either.

From the RPV:
More Empty Rhetoric: Tim Kaine on the Gas Tax

We've seen it before from Chairman Tim Kaine - saying one thing during a campaign, then doing another when he's in office.

As gas prices surged when he was Governor, Tim Kaine - who recently told an audience, "that aspects of the gas price thing that makes (him) scratch [his] head" - considered raising the gas tax on the Virginia families and business already suffering. (Tim Kaine at Italian Delight Restaurant, South Boston, 3/3/2012)

And with gas prices already above $4 in some parts of Virginia, Kaine's squishy record on gas taxes has him desperately trying to convince Virginians that when he says he won't raise taxes this time, he really, really means it. Honest.

* "Kaine thought that increasing the gas tax was the wrong way to go since cars are becoming more fuel-efficient." (Roanoke Free Press, 2/28/12)

Sound familiar? In 2006 Kaine was spouting an eerily similar tune:

* "'I think the right way to solve this problem is without a gas tax' Kaine said of Virginia's need to improve its transportation infrastructure."(WTOP, 4/25/06)

Yet in 2008 Kaine changed his tune, and apparently saw a gas tax increase as a potential problem solver to "consider":

* "Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D) said Tuesday that he would consider backing an increase in Virginia's 17.5 cent-a-gallon gasoline tax, despite the record price of fuel at the pump." (The Washington Post, 4/30/08)

* "'All issues are on the table,' Kaine said. 'We are talking about a gas tax.'" (The Washington Post, 4/30/08)

* "Kaine says he will not rule out the idea of a statewide gas tax to help fund transportation in the Commonwealth." (NBC29, 5/1/08)

"Tim Kaine will tell us one thing then do another. Unfortunately we saw it all before when he was willing to consider raising the gas tax as Governor, even after saying it wasn't 'the right way to solve [the] problem,'" said RPV Chairman Pat Mullins.

"Gas prices are surging, some Virginia families are paying $30 more to fill up their cars today since President Obama and Chairman Kaine went to Washington three years ago. Virginia needs a Senator who won't "consider" a tax hike that will hurt Virginia families and their budgets," he said.
I wonder what Kaine is going to say tomorrow ...
