Government Trips to Las Vegas

Posted by madjillmom on April 3, 2012

Remember when it wasn’t good to squander government funds on junkets to Las Vegas.  PresBO cautioned us all to not spend the kids college money going to Vegas.  Now, that no one is looking, Michele and the girls take a trip to Las Vegas mostly at the governments expense.  This week, we are informed that the GSA had a big conference in Vegas and hired a fortune-teller or psychic to entertain.  Now the head of that agency has stepped down.  Nothing to see here. (Remember when Sheriff Joe was gonna make sure there wasn’t any government waste?  Neither do they.)

I think Michele must be in a jam.  If it looks like PresBO might not be getting another term, she will need to plan a lot of expensive trips over the next 9 months.  Will this be an indicator of what they think there chances are?

As an aside, Michele wore an outfit while on the trip attending a Kid’s Choice Award that was really interesting.  Wonder how much that cost at Target? It a little Star Trek like, not unattractive but not usual for a First Lady.  Check it out here. Scroll down to 2nd and 3rd photographs. The third feature the lovely daughters, Sasha and Malia. They are getting the best of their attractive parents. Great for them.

Sandra Fluke, Entitlement Queen

Posted by madjillmom on March 12, 2012

Sandra Fluke started out as a game changer.  The Dems wanted to point out that the Republicans want all women to be barefoot and pregnant.  What a great spin on a trumped up story.  Poor law student, age 23, suffering to put pills in the nightstand.  Bad Catholics, bad Republicans, and most especially, Bad RUSH!!!

Then the news on the new heroine starts to trickle out.  She is a 30-year-old, women’s health activist. She is being handled/pimped out to the lefty press by a public relations group headed by Anita Dunn, one of Obama’s Mao loving White House appointees who had to resign when Glenn Beck brought her words to our attention.

During the same week this starts to come out, a young woman in Michigan is found to be collecting food stamps after receiving a lottery win of over $500,000.  Another welfare queen comes to the forefront.  The more we learn of both of these women, the more it stinks.

Then comes a phone call from PresBO, because he doesn’t want Sasha and Malia to get the idea that speaking out on something important to you is a bad thing.  He would much rather teach Sasha and Malia that they are owed contraception if they attend a prestigious law school.  Now, the Dems are sending robo-calls out lambasting Rush.

Sandra, contraception is readily available.  It has been for some time.  Maybe you don’t want to spend time at Planned Parenthood with the dregs of the neighborhood because you are special.  You are a grad student headed into a lucrative profession.  Buy your own contraceptives.

This story is destined to fade soon.  The facts do not play well to a public that just wants the government to stop  spending.  The President , the Dems and the MSM have misread this dog and pony show.  It will go away, because it is now hurting the Dems.

Iraq War Troop Withdrawal

Posted by madjillmom on September 7, 2011

Yesterday there was speculation about the withdrawal of all but 3000 American troops in Iraq.  Word was that the Generals wanted 25,000 to 30,000 left in, but might settle for 15,000.  Word is that new SecDef Leon Panetta is caving to the number that suits Pres. Obama – 3000.  That seems to me to be 3000 sitting ducks unable to do much on the ground.  Further there is a “training the Iraqis” meme that makes me wonder if there is any hope for the last 3000.

Remember when there was questioning from liberals and anti-war folks about why the Bush twins weren’t fighting in this war Dad was responsible for?  So, now I wish to ask the same question of Pres. Obama.  Would you feel good about this 3000 troops if Sasha or Malia were there in uniform?  I doubt he would want them to be there in such small numbers.

It seems to me that this serves Obama’s goals, but not much else.  There will be problems if there are only 3000 troops in Iraq.  Seems that since we have Obama as President, there isn’t that much news on deaths or our troops.  So this way, soldiers will die but there won’t be much press on it.
