In a speech on Wall Street the other day, Obama compared himself to Gandhi. Well, that makes a lot of sense. He's created a lot of jobs in India.---Leno
- In my report on Limbaugh yesterday, I wrote what he said about Sandra Fluke was inappropriate. In addition, it hands the opposition another diversion from what the real problems are with the Obama administration. But let's take a look at how the liberal elite media's been treating Conservative women for many years, especially since Palin came on the scene. For example, The Washington Post referred to Bachmann as a "barbie with fangs in addition to attacking her on her religious beliefs and heated rhetoric. Bill Maher called Palin the "C" word, and "dumb twat." (I'd like to see this little piece of garbage say that to Palin's face or even her husband Todd's face behind some closed doors. Let's see who comes out of that room on their feet). He joked about Santorum's wife using a vibrator (try saying that about Michelle Obama you putz). Ed Shultz of MSNBC called Laura Ingraham a "talk slut" on his national radio show (I believe he did apologize for his comments). However, Babara WaWa laughed it off at the time. Herr Keith Olberman, when he was on MSNBC, referred to Michelle Malkin as "A mashed up bag of meat with lipstick on it." Montel Williams, on Air America, rooted for Bachmann to slit her own throat. There are tons of these examples showing how the media attacks conservative women and gets away with it. In fact, no one asked any of these nitwits to apologize (The National Organization of Women did criticize Maher for some of his language, but advertisers have not abandoned him) . As for all of the other shows and publications, no one asked advertisers to divorce themselves from either.
- So why is Rush the target? Two very simple reasons in my opinion: He's now become the issue; therefore, it's a diversion from more important issues. Just as important for the Left, they believe they now have the opportunity to take Rush out (it's the Left that has no respect for the 1st Amendment when it comes to conservatives). They've been trying for years and have failed. Hard to predict, but I think Rush can handle this one.
- Super Tuesday has finally arrived. This is like Christmas for these political observers. And it should be. Ten states are involved with 419 delegates as the top prize. Santorum and Romney still appear to be deadlocked in Ohio and Tenn. Yet, as big a day as this is in the primary campaign, most observers agree that this day will not decide who wins the race for the Republican nomination.
- As you might imagine all the usual left and progressive groups have been coming out in the last several weeks regarding the NYPD's aggressive counter-terrorism tactics. So it was refreshing to see that some Muslim groups rallied in support of the NYPD yesterday at NYPD headquarters. The leaders of the group said the NYPD helps keep their communities safe. "The police. They come to us and say, 'Is everything OK? How can we help you?'" said Imam Qayyoom. USA TODAY
- In case you might not know. The masterminds of the first World Trade Center attack in 1993 were headquartered in Jersey City, NJ. They had safe houses throughout NJ and NY. They were also planning on blowing up bridges and tunnels. I'd say the NYPD is doing one hell-of-a-job keeping us all safe, especially those living in Northern NJ and NY City. Oh, yes, one more thing. The NYPD lost 23 officers on 9/11 and the Port Authority Police lost 37. I'd venture to say: they have skin in this game.
- It didn't take long for Putin to start using thug tactics as soon as he won the presidency of Russia. Yesterday, his thugs attacked peaceful demonstrators in Moscow. He's already sending a clear message that he won't tolerate the stuff going on in the Middle East. USA TODAY
- In the same paper today, it reports that history shows sanctions---like those imposed on Iran---do not work and do not change regimes.
- Does Israel realize if Pres. Obama is re-elected, he will return to his old ways of hammering Israel? He no longer will need to be concerned about the Jewish vote (mind you: American Jews will still vote for him. He got 78% of the Jewish vote in 2008. I betcha you that number will not decrease significantly.
- "Not since Herbert Hoover has a party out of power had such an opportunity to run against everything that troubles the American family---prices, interest rates, unemployment, taxes or the fear of the future of their old age or the future of their children---that is now presented to the Republican Party..." That was said by said in a column by James Reston in the NY Times in 1980. In other words, Reagan was considered a sure loser. And what happened in 1980? Ronald Reagan smoked Jimmy Carter. So much for pundit insight. WSJ
