Our Congressman, Steve Cohen, appeared on Neil Cavuto’s “Your World” on Fox News Friday. As always, he reliably delivered all his party’s talking points and insults while avoiding answering the questions Cavuto put to him. An amused, bemused and finally frustrated Cavuto asked him “Are we seeing the same earth?” Continue reading “Steve Cohen’s Attitude Never Disappoints (Video)”
Election Day, November 2. It will either be a great victory for the country or a step back into an abyss of government control spreading to all aspects of our lives.
We have one month to make sure we don’t wake up on November 3 and ask “Why didn’t I just do more?”
“Why didn’t I work to take back my country?” Continue reading “One Month from Today”
Lawyer William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection blog highlights the odd nature of Gloria Allred’s mudslinging at Meg Whitman at the cost to her client, the illegal immigrant maid:
“The other interesting aspect quite apart from politics, is Allred’s willingness to expose her client to legal harm even though the client does not have any meaningful legal claim. This is not a case where Allred’s client is a crime victim who came forward to the police. There does not appear to be a violation of any law by Whitman, but there does appear to be both immigration and possibly criminal violations by Allred’s client, who filed false documents with the government. By going public as she has, Allred has exposed her client to significant legal jeopardy in order to score publicity and political points for Allred.”
Talk show host Mark Levin skewered her on his radio show, clip available at Breitbart.tv.
Last night “On the Record” host Greta Van Susteren similarly zinged Allred.
“What’s going on here?” I asked. Suddenly, a tall, thin man turned away from the hubbub to face me. “Barack Obama? What in God’s name are you doing in my backyard?”
“First off, enough of the God stuff. You Southern rubes just can’t leave it alone,” Obama said. “You’re in luck! I picked Memphis for my next backyard campa- er, policy discussion spot. Des Moines and Albuquerque were duds. At least I might get some barbecue here.”
“Well, yes, I have a pork butt on the smoker right now, but I never invited you! This is a home invasion,” I said.
“What’s a home invasion to you is eminent domain to the Fed,” the president said.
“Wait, a minute, I thought you weren’t supposed to eat barbecue. I thought Michelle had you on a strict diet and that the family never lets anything but tofu, broccoli and fish cross your lips.”
“Er, it’s a campa- er, regional thing. I wouldn’t want to insult Memphians.”
As his crew assembled some chairs and tables they unloaded from their truck, one of them yelled, “Uh oh. There’s a problem with the dog.”
“Problem, what problem? He’s friendly and only a puppy and …,” I started.
“No, no, no! This doesn’t fit the profile of a house the president would visit. Who messed up here? We only associate with rescued dogs, and he isn’t one. He’s not politically correct! Get him out of here!”
“But, but, but Bo’s not a rescue dog and you told the public that was the kind you were getting,” I said to the president.
“If you don’t think coming from Senator Ted Kennedy’s compound wasn’t a rescue, you’re dreaming,” he replied.
“What’s with this backyard stuff,” I asked one of the men. “Carter did it in 1980, but that didn’t work out so well.”
“Between you and me and the media, this isn’t working out too well either,” said the aide.
People began to assemble in my backyard. People I didn’t recognize as neighbors but a politically correct cross section of America. I was surprised to find a Hawaiian Jewish transvestite here, but you never know.
“Why don’t you go back to the beer summits? Didn’t that work out?” I asked.
“Not really. All anyone really cared about was what kind of beer they were drinking.”
“Well why did you choose Midtown Memphis?” I asked.
“Isn’t everyone here a Democrat?” the aide asked.
“Well, no.” I said. “I’m a Republican.”
“God! Doesn’t anyone ever vet these people?”
“About as well as you vetted Timothy Geithner?” I offered. “Listen, have you thought about a Fireside Chat? Obama would like to be the new FDR, wouldn’t he?”
“In a Blackberry/Twitter world? Why not use a word processor while you’re listening to your 8-track tapes,” he scoffed.
Suddenly, it began to rain and all heck broke loose.
“It’s just a pop up storm,” I said. “It will pass.”
“Well, no one really had any questions, anyhow, did they?” the aide said. “And the teleprompter is getting wet.”
“I have a few; more than a few,” I said.
“Later,” Obama said. “If it stops soon, I could still get a round of golf in. Anyone know of a good course?”
One Democrat vote kept the House from a vote before recess on extending the Bush tax cuts.
“The Hill” reports that today the Dems won in a 210-209 tally to adjourn this afternoon or tomorrow morning.
Minority Leader John Boehner took to the floor in an attempt to get some Democrats to allow the tax issue to be addressed. “Members are putting your elections above the needs of your constituents,” he said.
Boehner succeeded in getting 39 Democrats to vote with the Republicans. Among them was Travis Childers, who is running against Allen Nunnelee in the nearby District 1 Mississippi race.
The move to adjourn evidently surprised some members who were not informed of Nancy Pelosi’s decision until this morning.
Now economic uncertainty will continue to plague businesses, with the possibility that the lame duck session could allow big taxes to hit Americans in January.
Boehner’s move seems like a very shrewd move because the election now becomes a referendum on extending the tax cuts. Democrats in swing districts or heavily Republican districts, such as Childers, will be left in an uncomfortable position.
Here is the much talked about “Mourning in America” video, a take-off on Reagan’s “Morning in America” ad.
