Romney Declines To Disarm: Romney Demurs in Campaign Heckling War With Obama

June 19, 2012

Not “your McCain’s” campaign eh … Not taking the bait.

Mitt Romney declined to commit to telling his campaign to stop heckling President Obama’s campaign, just days after the president’s strategist condemned those who had heckled the GOP candidate during his bus tour this weekend.

“I know America has a long history of heckling,” said Romney during an interview with “Kilmeade and Friends” on Fox. “Free speech, but it would be very nice if we could reach that kind of conclusion. I’m not sure it’s possible, but that would certainly be a nice setting to reach.”

After groups of protesters came close to drowning out two of Romney’s campaign events in Ohio on Sunday, Obama’s senior campaign strategist David Axelrod condemned the behavior, remarking on Twitter that the tactics exhibited by the protesters were more attune to something the Romney campaign would do.

In May, Axelrod was heckled by members of the Romney campaign its supporters during a press conference he held in Boston meant to highlight Romney’s record as governor.

But Romney appeared more reluctant to condemn the behavior, and when asked if he will “urge” his staff to stop heckling, Romney responded, “I can assure you that we do not believe in unilateral disarmament.”

“Hey, hey, bilateral disarmament, that’s a different matter, but unilateral, no way,” added Romney.

Funny how the lamestream does Obama’s bidding. Team Obama, good player, supports Obama reelection every way they can.

Gunwalker: Media Takes a Pass …

October 16, 2011

Perhaps the biggest story in the political world since the U.S. House of Representatives voted to impeach Bill Clinton in the 1990s, although the Senate refused to remove him from office, is the fact that this week a subpoena from the House was issued to the entire top tier of the Obama Administration. Yet as of today the big media outlets–ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, the New York Times, and the Washington Post–have ignored the story entirely. And if they did mention it in passing, it was buried on a back page or relegated to an inconspicuous web page while never seeing the light of day on the air. Only Fox gave the story top billing.

Regarding the news blackout of the subpoena, one astute observer had this to say:

As evidence, ladies and gentlemen of the jury of history, I present the undisputed fact that on the evening news shows of NBC, ABC and CBS this week not one — NOT ONE — mentioned the unprecedented subpoena by a Congressional committee of information regarding the entire top echelon of the Justice Department in the Gunwalker Scandal.

Had this scandal involved John Ashcroft and the Bush Administration, does anyone doubt that the story would have led the nightly half-hour “puppet theater”? Or, that it wouldn’t have been covered like a blanket by all news departments from the moment the blood of Brian Terry dried in the desert sands of Rio Rico?

Big media complicity in the news blackout is a heavy indictment against modern journalism in America today.

In a stunningly insightful piece at Sipsy Street Irregulars today, citizen investigative journalist Mike Vanderboegh writes that when history records the dreadful events leading to the Project Gunwalker scandal, and its subsequent cover-up, the mainstream media will not be treated kindly. In fact, they will be the subject of ridicule and scorn for their complicity in the scandal, giving aid to the Administration’s attempt to hide its illegal activity and cover-ups by either refusing to report it or by slanting its reporting to imply that the key players at the top did no wrong.

WaterGate II? …. ‘Solyndra for Dummies’

September 12, 2011

Solar panel firm Solyndra was in the news a lot this week after the company announced it would declare bankruptcy just months after receiving millions of dollars in government grants. And as if that weren’t news enough, the FBI also got involved this week, raiding Solyndra’s offices looking for… well, no one’s quite sure at this point.

The plot continues to thicken and as the larger story develops, but it’s important to remember that aside from the legal implications behind any wrongdoing, there’s also a political backstory playing out here.  Thankfully, to spell it all out for us, blogger Zombie has compiled a helpful “Solyndra for Dummies” guide.



Cliff Ahead: Obama’s Worst Nightmare; The Slow Economy Slows Some More

June 2, 2011

Obama’s chickens are coming home to roost.

PROF. STEPHEN L. CARTER: Economic Stagnation Explained At 30,000 Feet.

The man in the aisle seat is trying to tell me why he refuses to hire anybody. His business is successful, he says, as the 737 cruises smoothly eastward. Demand for his product is up. But he still won’t hire.

“Why not?”

“Because I don’t know how much it will cost,” he explains. “How can I hire new workers today, when I don’t know how much they will cost me tomorrow?”

He’s referring not to wages, but to regulation: He has no way of telling what new rules will go into effect when. His business, although it covers several states, operates on low margins. He can’t afford to take the chance of losing what little profit there is to the next round of regulatory changes. And so he’s hiring nobody until he has some certainty about cost.

One more time, Keynesian Economics do not work.

Obama Gun Control: Under The Radar?

May 27, 2011

According to gun control advocate Sarah Brady, you told her, “I just want you to know that we are working on it (gun control). We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”

Why are you going through gun control processes “under the radar?”

Is there a problem with working on gun control in the open?

Since any gun control legislation would eventually have to be debated and passed in the open, are the “processes” to which you referred regulations or agency guidances/opinions that wouldn’t attract as much public attention?

Don’t worry, Gun Walker is already out in the open. Open challenge to new White House propaganda czar: Let’s talk ‘Gunwalker’

Gov. Sarah Palin on Pelosi district’s Obamacare waivers: ‘Seriously, this is corrupt’

May 17, 2011

Daily Caller reports:

In response to the revelation that about 20 percent of the latest slew of Obamacare waivers went to luxurious restaurants, nightclubs and hotels in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s district, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told The Daily Caller the waiver process is “corrupt.”

“Unflippingbelievable! No, wait, it is believable,” Palin said in an email to TheDC. “Seriously, this is corrupt. And anyone who still supports the Pelosi-Reid-Obama agenda of centralized government takeovers of the free market and the corresponding crony capitalism is, in my book, complicit.”

Yes it is unflippingbelievable, but that is how Democrats do things.
