Funny And Not

Don’t spend too much time dwelling on just how much over his head President Obama is, nor on how his motivations are purely political. Laughing at his incompetence won’t bring down the debt one cent.

Jared Monti, was the first person who I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually came back and wasn’t receiving it posthumously.”

Actually Jared Monti was killed in action in Afghanistan, on June 21, 2006.

Obama Votes ‘Present’ On Weinergate

Missing yet another chance to raise the moral bar, White House press secretary Jay Carney said, “We have no comment” on congressman Weiner’s latest indiscretions. Weiner has admitted to exchanging explicit photos and messages through Twitter, Facebook, email and occasionally on the phone with roughly six women in recent years.

To be honest, there was no vote. No comment. Present. What’s the difference? What’s worse, the Obama administration is showing zero leadership in expecting higher standards. Where you expecting something else from our president?

Civilians Killed In Pakistan

At least six civilians have been killed in a bomb blast outside the north-western Pakistani city of Peshawar. This time it is not from a drone strike on a Taliban hideout. This is Muslim on Muslim terrorism.

No word on whether any Korans were also blown up. There would be hell to pay for that.

So far there are no fatwas ordered on the perpetrators. And why is that you ask? Probably because Islam is the religion of peace and Allah is all-knowing.

Recovery Summer 2.0

Fewest jobs in eight months added. Unemployment goes back up to 9.1 percent.

With a little over a year to go until the next national election cycle is complete, it has become apparent that from an economic standpoint, the SS Liberal has officially run out of steam. Hull weighted down with the barnacles of false promises and rudder crippled by the reckless mismanagement of a spendthrift captain from Chicago, she sits there floundering in a sea of unemployment and malaise not experienced since Jimmy Carter was at the helm.

President Obama is having great success in his mission to fundamentally change America. Change you can step in.

Chris Matthews Wins M.R.I.O.T.D. Award

Mitt Romney announced he is running for president in 2012 today. He did it in Stratham, New Hampshire, at the Bittersweet Farm. The same place that Bush ’41 and Bush ’43 made their announcement. Not missing a beat, Chris Matthews, host of Hardball on MSNBC plays the race card.

While watching the clip of Romney’s announcement, Mathews says “look at the diversity in that crowd. They are Lilly white.”

Chris wins the M.R.I.O.T.D. (Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day) award hands down on a twofer. First for even injecting a racial element, and second for the locale of the event. They were in New Hampshire, where blacks represent 1.4 percent of the population.
