Clinton offers Bribe to Sestak

Posted by madjillmom on May 28, 2010

Ok, something doesn’t pass the smell test here. Rahm Emanuel sends Bill Clinton to Joe Sestak to try to talk him out of running against old fool, Arlen Specter. Bill Clinton offers a position on an unpaid advisory board to the President. If that is what was offered, they must think Sestak is an idiot. Maybe they could have offered him one of the janitorial jobs around the oval office. Something doesn’t seem even remotely plausible here. What prestige is there being on an advisory board compared to possibly becoming a US Senator? Particularly since Obama has about a thousand advisers and committee groups supposedly advising him.

Next time, offer him a bag of old Halloween candy.

So much for changing the tone and ways of Washington.

Going Galt

The article by Dan Kennedy is really good . Cuff links as protest. Do not contribute. Read Atlas Shrugged.

Will Obama denouce SEIU protest?

Posted by madjillmom on May 27, 2010

While the MSM went to the nth degree describing the Tea Parties as racist, angry mobs, they can’t seem to even cover the recent angry SEIU mob of protesters screaming on the Maryland lawn of a B of A executive. The SEIU sent 14 buses to the home filled with angry signs and yelling people to the front porch of the man. The crowd scared the neighbors and the son of the man. Now the family is afraid. Apparently, the police couldn’t or wouldn’t do anything about it, probably due to the size of the mob. The protest was not permitted.

Will President Obama denounce the protest tactic used by his favorite union and close ally? I won’t hold my breath.

Cereal Shortage?

Posted by madjillmom on May 26, 2010

Ok, I guess I am getting paranoid. For the last several grocery store visits, I have noticed a shortage of cereal. The aisle never looks stocked. Is something up with that?

Afghan War Casualties

Posted by madjillmom on May 25, 2010

At the height of the Iraq war, there was frequent notice of KIAs from West Point. This seems to be happening again as there have been three KIAs in the last 6 weeks or so. I have a strong feeling that the casualties are up in Afghanistan. I am not hearing about this in the press. Not like we heard monthly during the darkest part of the Iraq War. This is to be expected due to the increase in troops. It is also to be expected because this is Obama’s war and the MSM won’t make a big deal of the casualties because it doesn’t matter now that Bush isn’t responsible.

Mexican Divorce

Posted by madjillmom on May 25, 2010

The french kiss that was last week between Mexican Pres. Calderone and Pres. Obama has turned into a quickie Mexican Divorce with the intention to introduce of 1200 National Guard troops on the southern border. So sad. Poll numbers are at fault, I’m sure. When Arizona does something, its racist. When Obama does it, its a security concern. Fix the damn border.

Obama and the Oil Spill

Posted by madjillmom on May 25, 2010

Pres. Obama is taking heat for his administrations response to the oil spill. He has visited Louisiana once. He will be going again just as soon as he makes another visit to California to raise money for Senator Barbara Boxer. He has his priorities straight. Another at risk Democrat or the biggest ecological disaster in the world/universe.

Union Members are Chumps

Posted by madjillmom on May 24, 2010

While union members have paid their dues, said unions have politically funded democrats (by about 99 to 1 republican). This money should have gone to woefully underfunded pension funds. This is going to bite union members in the bum soon.

West Point Commencement Speech

Posted by madjillmom on May 23, 2010

We were thrilled to be in Michie Stadium as Pres. Obama gave the commencement address at West Point yesterday. I have looked for the transcript to refresh my memory, but can’t yet find it. It is being talked about and was broadcast widely. We were tired. We had been up and going since 4 am and the speech dragged a bit as we were trying to get our second wind. We were in our seats in the stadium by about 6 am for the speech that started about 10:45 am.

First, let me note that it is a privilege to have any sitting President speak at a commencement. It is customary for the sitting President to speak at a military academy each year.

I did think the speech a bit long and a bit meandering. His speechwriters did a good job of personalizing the speech to West Point. He spoke of the cadets patriotism. Good choice. It was a bit too political for me. I know that sounds ridiculous, but I felt he got into the weeds regarding America’s new place in the world. There was some silly women’s rights and diversity stuff that is basically boilerplate. There was too much gratuitous talk about the religion of peace. Why is religion even an issue at a military academy speech?

The worst part by far for me was when he was talking about Eisenhower not being able to forsee the fall of the Berlin Wall at the conclusion of WWII. Obama and his speechwriter’s have no modern history knowledge. Eisenhower couldn’t have forseen the fall of the Berlin Wall at that time because there was no Berlin Wall at that time.

I am going to print off a copy of the speech when it becomes available on the whitehouse.gov website. I need to read it over and see what else I can see about it. I also need to put a copy in a memory book for our son, the lieutenant. I can’t actually put in the the memory book for my son, because such a book does not yet exist.

Obama Shows Real Anger to Campaign Contributors

Posted by madjillmom on May 14, 2010

Real anger at British Petroleum, Haliburton, TransOcean and Goldman Sachs. BP and Goldman were big Obama contributors.

No real anger at Times Square Bomber, Ft. Hood Bomber, or a nearly nuclear Iran.

Sustained venom at Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Fox News. Wow.
