Just the Facts Ma'am

Let’s see if I get this straight. One of Obama’s ‘bundlers’ and major contributors is up to his ‘hamhockers’ in the Solyndra Energy startup.

He and his other co-harts visit the White House about 20 times in under 2 months and come away with a loan guarantee of half a billion bucks, which takes second place to investments by venture capitalists, even though the WH budget office did not like the investment, which had already been denied by the Bush administration.

Then in a little over a year, Solyndra has waded through all but a few million of the loan, files bankruptcy and will surrender the rest and maybe more to pay bankruptcy attorneys.

The initial investors walk away mostly whole (and maybe more) to take the Fifth Amendment before Congress and breath easier knowing that Congress may discover criminal wrongdoing, but it will be up to the Eric Holder/Obama justice dept. to pursue criminal prosecution, like they did with the Black Panthers.

Yeah, good luck with that one.

Any questions?

Raining Ethics

The Hill: “A liberal advocacy group is filing an ethics complaint against Rep. Darrell Issa, alleging that the California Republican has repeatedly used his public office for personal gain.”

Looks like Palin’s ‘buddies’ have moved to the lower 48. It’s what you do when things get slow in Wasilla.

Foxes in the Hen House

CNN is going to host a Tea Party debate and folks wonder why Sarah Palin hasn’t jumped into the race.

Here’s a clue: The foxes are going to hold a chicken coup inspection.

Need I say more.


Picking Winners

So, Mitt (Mittens) Romney is ecstatic over his endorsement from Tim Pawlenty.

Memo to Mitt: It’s one thing to be endorsed by a winner. It’s another to be endorsed by the first loser.

Talk about Irony

Obama blames Bush for the “hole” that he “inherited”.

(I’ll let the intellectuals detail, with unending citations, links and footnotes, the trillions of dollars added to our debt, the tens of trillions accumulated to our unfunded liabilities, the tens of thousands of regulations heaped upon our already overburdened businesses and the explosion of Big Government.)

Even if it is true, pity the poor schmuck that comes after Obama.

Things Change

Time was, I had done so much without anything for so long, that I believed I could do anything with nothing.

On the other hand, Obama has done nothing for so long with so much, that he now can do nothing with everything.

Running Mouths

Seems that Jimmy Hoffa Jr. has declared war on Conservatives and the Tea Party. Guess that’s what you do when you can’t do anything else. Memo to Jr.: Don’t look now but you’re part of the problem, not the answer.

Hey Jr., when you say something worth listening to, let me know. Meanwhile, if you think 12% of working America is going to take over the other well armed 88%, then you’re more nuts than you sound. Go ahead, you get the first shot, but remember to never write a check your ass can't cover.

Saying Dick

When asked what he thought about Sarah Palin’s presidential possibilities, I couldn’t help but notice that Dick Cheney mentioned that he was, “troubled by Palin’s resigning from the Alaska governorship before her term ended“.

Well, ain’t that special. I guess that you ,Dick, didn’t get the memo about it being a completely fruitless endeavor to remain in office, in Alaska, while paying millions out of your own pocket fighting frivolous lawsuits. Lawsuits, by the way that have ALL been dismissed. Or stated another way, an exercise in futility. You know, kind of like your explaining going back to Halliburton for about 15 minutes to receive your $40 million dollar pension.

Moreover, it seems to me, sir Richard, that you were vice president when Bush Jr. decided it was a good idea to give free medicine to about 40 million people. You were also vice-president when ‘43’ waffled on the notion that people who couldn’t qualify for a line of credit at Sears could miraculously buy a $300, 000 dollar home.

Nevermind that Saddam had threatened his dad, Bush Jr. kept the Iraq war going long after the new government stretched Saddam’s neck. And it continues to this day. In fact, there is no piece of real estate that we have invaded in the last 50 years that we don’t maintain a presence.

And while you, sir Richard, were writing your book, thousands of Americans have died in places that we didn’t belong long after we claimed our job was done there. So while you were condemning Sarah Palin for leaving her post, you had long ago abdicated your responsibility for occupying lands abandoned by the U.S. in the name of freedom, lands that to this day are threatened by America’s enemies.

No Mr. Cheney, until you clean up the explanations to your own messes, you might refrain from commenting on those who have yet to be accused of nation building, expanding government or destroying an economy.

Therefore, you shouldn’t say Dick.

Doing Nothing

Has anyone else noticed the Federal Government suing so many folks for trying to do something….stop illegal immigration, build a border fence, explore for energy, build airplanes in a right to work state, etc.

Meanwhile no one is suing the Federal Government for doing nothing….oh yeah, right, you have to get permission to do that. But is anybody asking for it?
