Alas, impressionable youngsters like Monica Lewinsky will no longer have a presidential knee pad career path to internship, though I’m astonished that Minority Leader Pelosi agreed with Speaker Boehner that the congressional page program should be killed.
Hey, you save $5 million here and there, and pretty soon it might add up to real money.
Speaker Pelosi has now granted her party in the House blanket authority to circumvent the standard rules process and expedite floor votes through December 18th.
A dying rattlesnake is still very dangerous…
And speaking of changing the rules, read about how corrupt labor unions and a corrupt Obama Administration, having rigged the rules, are now changing them to benefit the labor unions with regard to the Delta/Northwest merger.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi has just announced that she will be running for House Minority Leader. John Boehner is probably on the floor laughing at the extraordinary help he’s receiving from the Democrats. The only thing better would be if she actually wins.
The NRCC has a prompt and amusing response.
Does anyone with half a dozen functioning gray cells still believe the Democrats got the message the voters sent?
Now the question is what kind of fight we’ll see over the position.
Pretty bad, if Karen Tumulty, often found flogging progressive causes in Time magazine, is asking this very thing in the WaPo. Add to that the Democratic gubernatorial candidate for Rhode Island says His Oneness can shove his endorsement, and November 2nd ain’t looking pretty for the progressives.
The report from the office of Neil Barofsky, special inspector general of the TARP bailout slams Treasury and the administration for manipulating data depending on their audience. I don’t see how Geithner the Incompetent survives this, but stranger things have happened.
To make matters worse, CBS has shown a “60 Minutes” investigative report which finds that when you take into account the underemployed as well as the unemployed, the national rate hits 17% and California a staggering 22%. 20% of the unemployed have college degrees, and a third of the unemployed have been out of work for over a year. This hasn’t happened since the Great Depression.
Sage Michael Barone explains in the Telegraph why Americans have turned against His Oneness and big government. The Daily Beast has a piece up on the “Five Signs Your Party Is Doomed” and someone let CNBC report that the dollar is in danger of becoming toxic waste.
The American Spectator points out that views normally considered mainstream are now being reviled by Democrats as extremist and bigoted. No one is surprised that Hugh Hewitt calls for radical Democrats to be booted out next week, or that Deroy Murdock writes of the stimulus as an $814 billion flop, but even the bookies are now coming out with odds that Republicans will regain the House, and the new poll by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press features a chart which should make Democrats suicidal, despite Tim Kaine’s claims that Democrats will hold the House, and Nancy Pelosi whining that her party hasn’t gotten credit for what it’s done. Of course, voters are giving them full credit for what they don’t like…
The G-20 summit has ended in failure for the administration’s proposal to set a cap for each country’s deficit or surplus. Even the India trip so carefully planned by Obama for immediately after the mid-term elections, is generating no buzz, while gathering some criticism for his use of teleprompters and failure to provide an itinerary.
Nutty Nancy called a press conference to pat herself on the back for blowing $140,000 of your tax dollars on new lighting so efficient it will take barely 10 years to pay for itself, by adjusting lighting against the amount coming in the windows.
Pelosi said that the new lights in the cafeteria would make the Capitol a “shining example of sustainability” and green technology.
Doesn’t this prove that Democrats are too lazy and too stupid to use light switches and to adjust window shades themselves?
If the Attorney General of your state isn’t filing suit against the federal government over the health care snatch, shouldn’t you ask why?
Greg Mankiw offers an interesting post, while Sen. Chuck Grassley suggests His Oneness, The Mouth, cabinet members, and top White House staff be put under the new health care system so they’ll be knowledgeable about it (h/t Daniel Foster at The Corner).
If you’re curious as to why His Oneness is now going on a tour to amp up support for the bill which he’s signing Tuesday, it’s because the White House and progressives knew We the People hated it, yet passed it anyway. I think this proves how wide and deep the antagonism is.
More cases like this one showing the benevolence and sweet reason of Medicare, won’t be drowned out by, to borrow a phrase from Jonah Goldberg, more cowbells. More cartoons such as this won’t help either.
