Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) Throws The Race Card

I have to hand it to Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV). That Democrats like him use the race card whenever their political campaigns get tough can be expected. But race_cardwho knew that he would find a way to use the race card over efforts to keep the government from taking over a sixth of the private sector economy with his government run health care turned health insurance plan?

The guy is a disgrace for a politician, let alone as the leader of the Senate. And to try comparing opponents of this government takeover to those who opposed the abolition of slavery is preposterous. On the contrary, opponents of this government takeover want to preserve that freedom for all people.

Let me remind Harry Reid of some historical facts. It was Republican Abraham Lincoln that fought for the abolition of slavery and got it. And 100 years later it was Republicans that carried the Civil Rights Act of 1964, where most of the opposition to the Civil Rights Act came from Democrats, including Al Gore Sr.

All of which makes Harry Reid look like a blooming idiot in every one’s mind but the media and others in his party. I hope I’m wrong about this, but you can expect them to circle the wagons around him.

Dec 7, 1941, Japan Raids Pearl Harbor

The attack that brought the United States fully into WWII. As costly as it was, the war did end. The United States and its allies did prevail. The country re-tooled, re-built, the economy recovered and the world became a better place. God bless those who served and died fighting for our country.

And everyone thought that we would never see an attack on U.S. soil again.

The Meeting On Openness Is Closed

In a move befitting candidate Obama’s campaign promises for openness, or not, a workshop on government openness is closed to the public.

Remember how candidate Obama ranted and raved about how the Bush administration claimed ‘separation of powers’ when there was all this great interest in the prosecution of the war on terror, conversations with communication companies over wiretapping,  and the so-called torture of KSM? Clearly, real national security issues were at stake and clearly needed to be preserved under the separation of powers. That was Bush’s position. And, that’s what candidate Obama said needed to change in Washington.

Look at how the Obama administration has changed things in Washington. Oh wait. Scratch that. Seems the President is taking the whole separation of powers thing to include parties and dinners held at The White House.

Fast forward to the two gate crashers that were allowed to get into a State dinner hosted by the President for the Prime Minister of India, His Excellency Dr. Manmohan Singh. How does the President react to calls in Congress for an investigation as to how that security breach happened, including wanting to hear from the person responsible for the evening, White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers? Sorry, she’s not talking to Congress. Separation of powers you know.
