According To The Left's Rhetoric, President Obama Faces Security Risk During Jobs Speech Tomorrow Night

Just listening to Rush Limbaugh. As usual, he has it nailed with precision insight and delicious humor. According to Rush, shouldn't President Obama be afraid to enter the House of Representatives tomorrow night to give his jobs campaign speech, which he could've (and should've) given months ago (which we have learned now won't even detail all of his proposals — surprise!) After all, by his own recent admission and that of Vice President Biden and members of the administration, "civil rights" leaders, radical union leaders and leftist Congressional allies, there will be close to 300 terrorists, barbarians, outlaws, hostage takers, racists and sons-of-bitches — all of whom should be condemned to hell — in the House chamber tonight. The president is one brave man to enter a hall filled with ne'er-do-wells like that! We hope the Secret Service is especially careful tonight in its security sweep and monitoring of those hooligans who enter the hall. By the logic of the Left's extreme, over-the-top recent rhetoric, there should be several arrests tonight.

Speaking Of Arrogance, Cue John Kerry

Speaking of the arrogance of trying to elevate all problems to a "crisis" and thinking a big, powerful, central government can solve those problems, Senator Arrogant himself spoke recently, blaming the average American voter for not knowing enough. What John Kerry means, of course, is that Americans are fools for not believing in the failed social and collective experiment of the last two years; that we need to wake up and realize how good we have it with nationalized health care, auto companies, financial services, student loans and insurance companies. He thinks not only are we too stupid to understand excessively high unemployment and third-world-like debt, he's bewildered at the thought that people who lose their own jobs or who must close down their own businesses are concerned for their future and the policies that created the uncertainty.    Then there's the irony of his claim that the popular conservative uprising going on is based on snappy phrases. This from the man who represents the side whose entire platform is based on bumper sticker slogans and philosophy ("Corporate Greed Kills More Americans Than Terrorists Do," "Health Insurance Companies are Death Panels," and "When The Rich Exploit the Poor, a Little Socialism Helps").

Senator Arrogant at his best, blaming Americans who aren't smart enough to believe as he does.

Virginia News Stand: May 8, 2010

Annotations & Elucidations Weekend Edition

Wow! It looks like there was public prayer in Fredericksburg and the city is still standing. Amazing! Who would've thought? In other news sure to frighten liberals, the feds asked for and received more time to respond to Virginia's defense of its Health Care Freedom Act. Hmmm. Haven't all the experts said Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli doesn't have a chance? So, then, why do the G-men need more time? 

On the other hand, U.Va. snapped in line quickly, promising to turn over all documents the AG has requested in the case of former university professor Michael Mann, one of the main characters in the "Climate-gate" scandal, in which "global warming" scientists admitted they made up facts and concealed others to manipulate date and public perception — and, more importantly — public policy (i.e., job-killing taxes and cumbersome regulations). Meanwhile, Governor Bob McDonnell announced that transportation meetings now will be streamed online as well as members of a commission to recommend streamlining government. That should be news only when the recommendations, if any, are put into effect, as we've seen governor after governor put commissions in place. Nothing much ever results from them.

Nationally, Dems are worried stiff over two long-held House seats in which there are special elections this month. Many think they could be bellwethers for November.
