Here is the video of White House Chief of Staff and lying crapweasel Jack Lew being embarrassed by Chris Wallace on Fox News. Is the Administration really stupid enough to run with this line of "reasoning"?
Heath Shuler has always been a bit of a conundrum in western North Carolina. He was a Democrat, albeit more Conservative than your average one, in a very Conservative area of the state. And like his fellow members of the "Blue Dogs" he was usually fell in line to support Pelosi and Company after much public "Discussion" that helped make him look more Conservative than he is in actuality. Now his time has come and he will be retiring at the end of this Congress. However, this is not the result of a popular uprising in Asheville even though the Tea Party is active in that area. Rather it illustrates the importance of voting and highlights one of the most overlooked results of the 2010 elections; the takeover of several state legislatures by Republicans just in time for re-districting.
In North Carolina, Republicans took control of the legislature in the 2010 elections and this has allowed them to drive Brad Miller and now Shuler from office. The Congressional delegation will be more representative of the state in general as Republicans get their chance to gerrymander. As a resident of NC-4, a district set up to be Democrat district forever, I am a beneficiary of the Republican majority as I will now be in NC-2 represented by Renee Ellmers. This is a great thing as is the retirements of Miller and Shuler. And David Price in NC-4 will be where he belongs, in Chapel Hill and Durham.
The lesson for all of you that are complaining about our potential nominee in the race for POTUS and threatening to stay home (I am looking at you Newt supporters) is to get out and vote no matter who that nominee is in November. Not only can we send Obama back to Chicago, we can extend our control over state houses and local politics which is vital as I am seeing firsthand in North Carolina.
Coming to us from Hot Air, President Obama has once again decided to commit himself to job creation and the economy. Well thank goodness for this resolution as unemployment has only locked itself in at over 9%. Be sure to watch the video of Tim Kaine's lame attempt at spin. According to Kaine, Obama has been too busy with other things to focus on the economy, but they were good things, like ObamaCare. We already knew that he was not focused on the economy and was instead focused on pushing his "Progressive" agenda but it is good to see this admission.
Bonus; Ed Morrissey destroys the "Obama ended the war" argument. Anyone with half a brain knows that the only reason we can withdraw the bulk of our forces from Iraq is that Bush pursued "The Surge" and our troops were victorious.
Rick Santelli drops the hammer on Democrat Paul Kanjorski in this clip. You see, it is just "too complicated" to fix Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae so we will keep dumping money into them...on top of the $145B already spent bailing them out.
