“You know what my biggest fear is?” our host asked. “It’s not really Obama, for what he’s done is to accelerate what the liberals have been slowly doing for decades – so quickly that their socialism is obvious to everyone. Which means the solution is obvious to everyone. My biggest fear is that voters will give Republicans the power to repair America on November 2nd – and the Republicans won’t have the courage to do it.”

“All he knows how to do is keep on talking.”

An administration lacking focus.

U.S. Rep. Charles Djou is calling on President Barack Obama to waive a 90-year-old law so foreign ships can help respond to the huge oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The logical question: why wasn’t this done two months ago?

D.C. SCOTUS Examiner Hans Bader has the answer:

Crucial offers to help clean up BP’s oil spill came “from Belgian, Dutch, and Norwegian firms that . . . possess some of the world’s most advanced oil skimming ships.” But the Obama administration didn’t accept their help, because doing so would require it to do something past presidents have routinely done: waive rules imposed by the Jones Act, a law backed by unions.

Few would fault anyone for an accident.  The spill—for all of BP’s shortcuts—was an accident.  Casting overt blame is unreasonable.

However, failure to do everything possible to stop the leak and clean up the mess is entirely the fault of this Administration.   Even the crowned princes of the Left at MSNBC admit, after the President’s remarks last night, this Administration is thoroughly incompetent.


ObamaCare: add senior citizens to endangered species list

Excerpt

“But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.”

                 House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

Well, it passed and we are starting to see what’s in it, and what it means for the country, especially for American senior citizens.

ObamaCare is only the acknowledged first step in nationalizing the entire healthcare industry but already financial experts don’t see a way to stop the bleeding.

Costs will soar.  Quality care will diminish.  Access will shrink.

The $940 Billion patchwork plan supposedly designed to cover about 8 million people without health insurance will probably drive that many seniors out of the system according to one analysis.   And the $940 Billion figure is only the beginning.

In the first decade, try on $3 Trillion for size.

Excerpt

No doubt Obama Administration officials were hoping their ‘clarifying’ disclosures just before the three-day weekend would make the Sestak scandal go away.

But like the President’s Memorial Day speech, that game was rained out as well.

Today, there are renewed calls for answers and investigations, and there are new revelations the Administration offered a federal job to Colorado Speaker of the House Andrew Romanoff if he, like Sestak, would step out of a campaign in deference to a candidate preferred by the President.

From the AP report on the Romanoff matter:

The new revelation of a possible political trade again called into question President Barack Obama’s repeated promises to run an open government that was above back room deals.


American Dream has become a nightmare

Those with Ears to Hear
Anywhere, USA

Dear Mr. President, Executives at Bank of America and Citibank, past and present Executives at Fannie Mae, Members of Congress, past Executives of Countrywide, and all those involved in the subprime swindle:

Greetings from the land of foreclosure and bankruptcy.

Ten years ago my wife and I were living the American dream. Working for a corporation I was making six figures. We bought a house. We were raising our kids to be good citizens. And then I decided to pursue the dream even further by starting my own business. It was quite successful for a number of years, providing our family with an income in the lower six figure range, sufficient to cover our obligations and allowing us to contribute 15% to charity, after taxes.

Fish were jumpin’ and the cotton was high.

Today, the picture is quite different.


Obama’s Katrina, Obama’s Watergate: Is impeachment forthcoming?

Excerpt


Keith Jones testifies in Washington. His son Gordon died on the Deepwater rig.

Incompetence gushing out all over

Decades of media-generated hatred directed at traditional American values found a focal point in Barack Obama, Son of Saul, keeper of the socialist flame.

And now, to invoke a Jeremiah Wrightism, “Dem chickens is comin’ home to roost.”

The champion of radic chic is being shown a paper tiger.  Consequently, his stalwart supporters are running for the hills like so many illegal alien farm workers.

Voters were warned: the man has no executive experience.   How can you even consider placing him in the most powerful, consequential executive role on the planet?  It is lunacy.


Obama administration committed felony says Dem congressman

Excerpt


  Rep. Joe Sestak, D-Penn.

Sestak has acknowledged many times the Obama Administration offerred him a federal job if he would agree to back out of the Pennsylvania primary. If Sestak, a former naval officer, is telling the truth, it means someone in the Administration, perhaps the President, committed a felony by making such an offer, an impeachable offense.
