  • Washington could not tell a lie.
  • Nixon could not tell the truth.
  • It is said that Obama can’t tell the difference.

A four-hour stop in New Orleans, on his way to a $3 million fundraiser.

Snubbing the Dalai Lama.

Signing off on a secret deal with drug makers.

Freezing out a TV network.

Doing more fundraisers than the last president. More golf, too.

President Barack Obama has done all of those things — and more.

What’s remarkable is what hasn’t happened. These episodes haven’t become metaphors for Obama’s personal and political character — or consuming controversies that sidetracked the rest of his agenda. Continue reading

These people who are making big bucks can say any thing they want, but how much of it is hog wash or better known as blowing smoke up your ass, non of this will be over until jobs and businesses come back to this Country.

WASHINGTON – It’s about to become official: The recession is over — but not the pain.

TIME.com By SCOTT HAIG Scott Haig – Mon Oct 26

Do you know how many people are at the table with gloves on, when you have an operation? There’s the surgeon and a scrub nurse, of course. A surgical tech may be there too, suctioning up those queasy fluids, holding the arm or leg we’re working on, cutting sutures and holding retractors. But you have seen enough medical shows to know there’s also always at least one other doctor present. We may not engage in the same kind of dramatic medical banter that fictional surgeons do (like flying a passenger jet, safe surgery should be a little bit boring), but that second doctor – the assistant surgeon – should be in the operating room for all major procedures.

Statisticians reject global cooling

American-Eagle-and-Flag--C10055018 By Bob L : NEWS AS I SEE IT!

Here we go again this sounds like Al Gore and Obama and all who want CAP & TAX to pass so they can rip off the American people for their profits, lets say that ALL this money that will be collected gos into HEALTH insurance and RETIREMENT fund only, NOT to ANY ONE PERSON TO PROFIT FROM IT, it should go back to the people who are having to pay for it, in HEALTH and RETIREMENT, NOT FOR PROFIT, then do you think they would be pushing for it like they are now, I don’t think so.

WASHINGTON – Have you heard that the world is now cooling instead of warming? You may have seen some news reports on the Internet or heard about it from a provocative new book. Only one problem: It’s not true, according to an analysis of the numbers done by several independent statisticians for The Associated Press. Continue reading
