TexasSparkle sheds a little light on MSM and James O'Keefe

MSM incorrectly jumped on the story as an attempt to bug a Senator's phone - WaPo had to publish a correction - when what they were doing was trying to expose a Senator who refuses to respond to her constituents! Seems a noble attempt at exposing wrongdoing to me!

Read the real story here.

Anyone reading WaPo or NYT - or any of hundreds of big city MSM Dem stooge news organizations - is not getting the facts. When will they see this?

Amazing how Harry Reid losing his job causes the hard left to focus on trying to save theirs!

"POLITICO Breaking News:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says any federal spending freeze should apply to defense spending as well as to domestic spending – pushing back against one of President Barack Obama’s State of the Union proposals. In an interview with POLITICO, Pelosi also floats the idea of a two-track approach to health care reform, with easier-to-pass incremental changes possibly coming before a comprehensive reform bill."

This is the first rational statement from Ms. Pelosi in a year and 6 days!



Oregon raises their tax rate on the wealthy and businesses. Problem is, this will LOWER income to the state, as has been proven over and over and over and over...! Why? Because the wealthy and the businesses will LEAVE! It is really not hard to understand, except for a concentrated population of lefties - OREGON!

Read about it here.

James Taranto in the WSJ Best of the Web Today writes the following today:

"What's more, there is a particular type of stupidity to which intelligent people are uniquely prone: intellectual snobbery, or the tendency to cultivate an attitude of contempt toward those who are not as bright. This may appeal to New York Times readers or voters in, say, Hyde Park--that is, to people who think they're better than everyone else too. But it may prove Barack Obama's undoing as a national politician."

This will be BHO's and his minions undoing!

"Feeling the Heat, Obama Pours Kool-Aid"

Jonah Goldberg analyzes the reaction of BHO and his White House to the Brown win confirming the total lack of intellect and preponderance of ideology that is great news for the Republicans.

Wake up, Kool-Aid drinkers!



Peggy Noonan writes a wonderful column with her view on what is happening in our wonderful, adaptable country.

Read it all. Here is a taste:

"Speaking broadly: In the 2006 and 2008 elections, and at some point during the past decade, the ancestral war between Democrats and the Republicans began to take on a new look. If you were a normal human sitting at home having a beer and watching national politics peripherally, as normal people do until they focus on an election, chances are pretty good you came to see the two major parties not as the Dems versus the Reps, or the blue versus the red, but as the Nuts versus the Creeps. The Nuts were for high spending and taxing and the expansion of government no matter what. The Creeps were hypocrites who talked one thing and did another, who went along on the spending spree while lecturing on fiscal solvency."

I'll personally continue to support the Creeps, but they better change their ways or I will change mine!

"POLITICO Breaking News:
Sen. Harry Reid said the Senate will wait for Sen.-elect Scott Brown to be sworn in “before we do anything new on health care.”"


VDH: Clarity on Scott Brown's Win!

Victor Davis Hanson in "Why the Great and Growing Backlash? What Scott brown's election portends for the Obama agenda." explains the mess Obama and his lackey Dem's have created for themselves with Mr. Hanson's usual clear insight and historical perspective.

The opening is quite on point:

"Dream up a gargantuan backlash against Barack Obama’s left-wing gospel, and you still could not invent the notion of a relatively unknown, conservative Scott Brown knocking off an Obama-endorsed, liberal, female attorney in liberal Massachusetts — in a race to fill the seat once held by Ted Kennedy.

If a liberal senatorial candidate can be defeated in Massachusetts, eleven months after the Obama hope-and-change blitzkrieg, it is hard to believe that any liberal seat is necessarily safe anywhere.

So the real story is not a populist backlash, but a growing populist backlash, whose ultimate nature and magnitude are as yet unknown. What’s going on?"

All my lefty friends can spin it as they choose, but the above sentence is their problem: they will again be a minority party after November, 2010.

Read the whole column - an excellent summary of the situation.

Mark Steyn On Point!

Mark Steyn in "Can Obama hold Teddy's seat?" summarizes as well as can be done the miscalculation of BHO and the "educated class."

All of my lefty friends should read this summary and take to heart it's facts!

The heart of BHO/Dem's problem:

"...Once upon a time, Barack Obama, in the words of Newsweek editor Evan Thomas, was "standing above the country, above the world, he's sort of God." Seeking to explain why the God of Hope had fallen farther faster than any modern president, David Brooks of the New York Times argued that the tea-party movement had declared war on "the educated class." He seemed to think this was some sort of inverted snobbery: If "the educated class" is for it – "health" "care" "reform," cap-and-trade, Miranda rights for terrorists – Joe Six-Pack and his fellow knuckledragging morons are reflexively opposed to it.

This almost exactly inverts what really happened over this past year.
"The educated class" turned out to be not that educated – if, by "educated," you mean knowing stuff.
They were dazzled by Obama: My former National Review colleague Christopher Buckley wrote cooing paeans to his “first-class intellect” and “temperament.” I used to joke that “temperament” was for the Obammysoxers of “the educated class” what hair was to Tiger Beat reporters. But you don't really need analogies. As David Brooks noted after his first meeting with Obama, "I was looking at his pant leg and his perfectly creased pant, and I'm thinking, a) he's going to be president and b) he'll be a very good president." And once you raised your eyes above pant level it only got better: "Our national oratorical superhero," gushed New York magazine, "a honey-tongued Frankenfusion of Lincoln, Gandhi, Cicero, Jesus, and all our most cherished national acronyms (MLK, JFK, RFK, FDR)."

Where'd that guy go? "People once thought Obama could sound eloquent reading the phone book," wrote Michael Gerson in The Washington Post last week. "Now, whatever the topic, it often sounds as though he is.""

Read the column and enjoy the quality of writing, intellect and humor!

Spin this!

Politico reports on Vic Snyder's retirement:

"Snyder is the 11th House Democrat to announce his retirement. -- and Republicans are aggressively contesting nine of those open seats."

The logic of voting for Obamacare and giving up your career when the majority of the country does not want it escapes me, but as I have said earlier it will be nice to control the House and the Senate for the last two years of BHO's and get the White House back in 2012.


A Couple of Honest Dem Pollsters

Patrick Caddell and Doug Schoen, pollsters for Carter and Clinton respectively, explain this administrations and the Democratic Parties attacks on Fox News and Rasmussen as the dishonest and anti-democratic efforts they are. This will not gain power for the Dem's, but will cost them power again for a couple of decades.

When will you Dem supporters wake up!

Their key paragraph:

"As pollsters for two Democratic presidents who served before Barack Obama, we view this unprecedented attempt to silence the media and to attack the credibility of unpopular polling as chilling to the free exercise of democracy."

Keep it up until November, 2010, and we can reverse this two years of undisciplined power grabbing.


Thursday, January 14, 2010


From the Heritage Foundations "Morning Bell" on the "openness" of the BHO administration. Those who put him in power should be ashamed:

"Yesterday, President Barack Obama, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and nine other lawmakers met face-to-face for seven hours to resolve differences between the House and Senate health care bills. At the same time these talks were going on, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, Service Employees International Union President Andy Stern and United Auto Workers President Ron Gettelfinger met with other Obama administration officials in a separate room in the White House. This all comes after these same labor leaders met personally with Speaker Pelosi yesterday, and after they met face-to-face with President Obama in the White House on Monday. Despite then-candidate Barack Obama's explicit promises to the American people, absolutely none of these meetings were open to the public or televised on C-SPAN. In fact, Politico reports: "Those involved in the talks sought to keep details of their progress under wraps.""

Government is not in place for Unions! Or is it?

BHO, Guantanamo and Intellect

I have questioned BHO's intellect since he first came on the scene. He always appeared as an accomplished speaker but an "empty suit." And I was certainly not alone in this analysis leading up to his election.

His first confirming action of this in my mind was his commitment to close Guantanamo the day after he became President. How could he have known he was able to do this? He wasn't! He was all feeling and no intellect!! Multitudes of examples have followed! His "followers" - those who voted for him - are of course of the same ilk and he remains popular with them.

James Taranto in the WSJ's Best of the Web Today summarizes the corner he is now in due to the commitment Guantanamo commitment.

I only hope he has learned something in the process.

HEALTHFARE Food for Thought

"Let me get this straight. Obama's health care plan was written by a committee whose Chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress which didn't read it, signed by a President who smokes, funded by a Treasury Chief who did not pay his taxes, overseen by a Surgeon General who is obese, and financed by a country that is nearly broke.

What could possibly go wrong?"

(From an email I received this AM)


Silliness on the Left: NPR

On my way to work this morning I hear 0ur "unbiased" government supported radio network spin the story of Senators Dorgan and Dodd's decision not to run for office in 2010 as a positive for the Democratic Party!!!

Oh no, their not biased! Two of your senior Senators see that 2010 is a disaster for the Dems and want to save face - and probably some of their money - for their future lobbying jobs, and this is great for the Dems. Only NPR could spin that!
