Blind. Deaf. Dumb.

The Roanoke Times editorial page this morning:

"Presidential and congressional candidates have scarcely mentioned climate change this year. In one rare exception, Republican Mitt Romney, once an advocate for smarter energy policies, mocked President Obama for promising to 'slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet.'

"But Hurricane Sandy rudely interrupted the bipartisan silence this week. While it is impossible to say that any single weather event was caused by climate change, Sandy has been just the sort of storm climate models forecast and serves as a terrible reminder of global warming's ever-growing threat."

Finally - after seven long years since Katrina wrecked New Orleans - with a veritable absence of major hurricanes in the intervening years - Times editorialists were able to trot out their global-warming-is-causing-major-weather-to-happen screed.

Let me set the record straight for you guys.  That "While it is impossible to say that any single weather event was caused by climate change ..."?  The fact that there has been only one - ONE - "single weather event" in nearly a decade disallows - at least to rational human beings - any notion that "climate change" is causing anything other than breathless, panicky liberal newspaper editorials.

"Climate change" is nonsense.  And always has been.

So stuff it.

Despite What You Read In The Papers ...

Roanoke College Poll: Late deciders push Romney to narrow lead over Obama in Va.; Allen overtakes Kaine in Va. Senate race

The poll says Romney has a "very narrow" lead of five points over the President.  49% to 44%.  (Among likely voters.)  Which isn't narrow at all.  That's landslide material in a two-way presidential race.

As it stands now, according to the poll, George Allen has amassed a "very narrow" margin over Tim Kaine as well.  47% to 42%.

The real shocker?

"Employing a more stringent screen for likely voters ... increases Romney's lead to 54 percent to 41 percent and Allen's lead to 51 percent to 39 percent."

Don't get cocky though.  We need all of you to get out and vote Tuesday.  At least once.



America's future depends on you.

Ah, To Be Young & Stupid

There's a band of college-age kids living in trees in Texas.

In protest.

A protest "blockade" of the XL pipeline.

The pipeline that won't even receive government approval for years.

Years of sitting in trees and doing nothing.

Somehow I'm okay with that.

They'll do this struggling nation no harm as long as they're there hanging from tree limbs.

You go, girls.


Why We're Destined To Win The War On Terror

Despite the efforts of Barack Obama.

A Ten Billion Dollar Check Will Turn Anyone

Can you blame him?

"President Barack Obama and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie cemented their new-found mutual admiration society on Wednesday, as the men gushed with praise for one another while touring damage from Hurricane Sandy on the devastated Jersey Shore."

If Christie were doing this for personal gain - like a cabinet post in Obama's second term - (?) - selling his soul would be one thing.

But the Jersey shore has been destroyed.

And he's sucking up for his constituents' sake.

It's actually admirable.

It is ... really ... it .. is ...

Tell It To Ambassador Stevens

Obama Tells Americans, 'We Leave Nobody Behind'

Bullshit.


That's the body of Chris Stevens being displayed on the streets of Benghazi by Muslim murderers on 9/12/12.  An American left behind by Obama and his gang.

The President has been referred to by some as the coward-in-chief.

At no time in the last four years has that been more fitting.

Question

Who died in the Valerie Plame saga?

You know.  The non-story that had every news person in America riveted to it for months?

You know.  The non-issue that led Scooter Libby to be imprisoned for lying about involvement, even though it was proven that he was not involved?

Answer: No one died.  No one.

So what's up with this?

The mysterious media Benghazi bugout

Four Americans were murdered.

And the media have no interest.

Odd.

Or maybe not.

Obama's Hiding Something

He and Hillary quickly set up a firewall - a "review board" - that would "investigate" the circumstances that led to the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi on 9/11.  A standard dodge when a highly placed politician wants to avoid answering for his or her actions.

A dodge that was intended to block all relevant information to get out before the upcoming election.

But some questions can't wait.

And some need no "review board."

What went on in this meeting?
Obama Met With Panetta and Biden at WH As Benghazi Terror Attack Unfolded
By Terence P. Jeffrey, CNS News

(CNSNews.com) - President Barack Obama met with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Vice President Joe Biden at the White House on Sept. 11, 2012 at 5:00 PM—just 55 minutes after the State Department notified the White House and the Pentagon that the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi was under attack.

The meeting between Obama, Panetta and Biden had been scheduled before the attack took place, and the Department of Defense is not commenting now on whether the three men were aware when they met that day of the ongoing attack or whether Obama used that meeting to discuss with his defense secretary what should be done to defend the U.S. personnel who at that very moment were fighting for their lives in Benghazi.

“Secretary Panetta met with President Obama, as the White House-provided scheduled indicates,” Lt. Col. Todd Breasseale, a Defense Department spokesman, told CNSNews.com on Tuesday. “However, neither the content nor the subject of discussions between the President and his advisors are [sic] appropriate for disclosure.” [link]
Actually, that portion of the meeting - if in that meeting there was any discussion relating to the Benghazi debacle - is absolutely appropriate for disclosure. These people work for us.

And four Americans were being murdered at the very time that their commander-in-chief, his immediate subordinate, and the Secretary of Defense were meeting to discuss national security issues.

What did Obama do in response to the ongoing attack on American sovereignty?

At this point, the answers he's given - and not given - indicate he did nothing.

Which explains the "review board" and the general obfuscation.

Which are tantamount to an admission of guilt.

Which explains how four Americans were left to die at the hands of Muslim terrorists.

They deserved better than the bunch of cowards and incompetents who led them to their doom.

You Can't Make This Stuff Up

From the Monroe County Reporter we learn that the man who offered prayer at Barack Obama's 2009 inauguration - Joseph Lowery - regrets all the hatred and bitterness that the current election is bringing out in people.

And so he decides to haul out his own:

"Lowery said that when he was a young militant, he used to say all white folks were going to hell. Then he mellowed and just said most of them were. Now, he said, he is back to where he was.

"'I'm frightened by the level of hatred and bitterness coming out in this election," said Lowery."

Hatred and bitterness.  He knows of that which he speaks.

I hate you for your hatred!

Lowery, so you know, is 91 years old.  So I choose to blame his vile bigotry on senility.

But I could be wrong.

In Your Face

So you know, Michael Mann - the poster child of global warming theory - or what was global warming theory before the globe stopped warming - now the poster child of climate change theory - until that too becomes totally discredited - has sued National Review for defamation.  (Good luck with that.)

National Review's response?

Bite me.

I love those guys.

My God.
