"I think that he's setting a horrible example. He preached family values and this and that. And not only did he go against everything that he preached and everything he believed in, he broke the law. And, apparently, there's a lot of people in Louisiana and across the nation, actually, that are not happy with that because, if they think that I'm a better choice, what does that say?"
One of the few positives to come out of Barry O's election: getting to step up and takes whacks at his idiot of a vice-president:
Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki took issue with the new U.S. administration on Tuesday, calling Vice President Joe Biden's criticism of the slow pace of reform in Iraq "out of date."Yeah, just what the Iraqi government needs right now: criticism. Right after a peaceful election that saw hundreds of thousands of Iraqi's vote against sectarian parties while showing major support for Prime Minister Maliki's administration. Granted, we Americans are used to the idiocy that often comes out of Joe Biden's mouth, but that was when he was a Senator from Delaware, which made it all-too-easy to put him on 'Ignore'. Now that Biden's the VP, people have no choice but to pay attention and listen, proving once again that Barry O's penchant for making bad choices actually started pretty early on.
Before leaving Washington last week to deliver a major foreign policy speech in Germany, Biden chided Baghdad for failing to settle disputes over the city of Kirkuk and to enact a law dividing oil revenue, among other issues.
"I think our administration is going to have to be very deeply involved. We are going to have to get in there and be much more aggressive in forcing them to deal with these issues," Biden said.
Asked about Biden's remarks on Tuesday, Maliki, an increasingly assertive leader whose followers won surprise victories in provincial elections last month, fired back.
"I believe talk about applying pressure on the Iraqi government or taking hard measures against it no longer works," he said at a news conference in Baghdad with visiting French President Nicolas Sarkozy."Such speech is out of date, because the government of Iraq knows its responsibilities and acts accordingly in a strong way."

NPR has asked Fox News not to identify its news analyst, Juan Williams, with NPR branding when he appears on Fox News because of outrage among its largely liberal listener-base. And Fox News has happily agreed to do so.
NPR Ombudsman Alicia Shepard wrote Wednesday that in 2008 she received 378 "complaints and frustrations about things Williams said on Fox," including claims that Williams "dishonors NPR" and is an "embarrassment to NPR" and that "NPR should severe [sic] their relationship with him."
Recent listener complaints have centered around Williams' comment that Michelle Obama could be a liability to her husband, seen below.
"Williams tends to speak one way on NPR and another on Fox," Shepard wrote. "As a result of this latest flap, NPR's Vice President of News, Ellen Weiss, has asked Williams to ask that Fox remove his NPR identification whenever he is on O'Reilly."
A Fox News spokesperson told Politico's Michael Calderone, "We were actually doing NPR a favor by even plugging them but we have no problem dropping the mention on the chyron along with their exposure to millions of O'Reilly Factor viewers."
Bashing Juan Williams has pretty become the norm on the Left ever since he dared to call out the black community for their lack of accepting self-responsibility in his recent "Enough" book. I mean, we all know that the white liberal capo's on the Left don't take too kindly to folks telling anyone within the "victim" crowd to take on any personal accountability for their actions. Too bad Williams' refusal to forever toe the line of the liberal plantation is now coming back to haunt him.

Ok, so let's be clear here: if you don't support illegal immigration in this country and aren't ok with them getting benefits, jobs and what-have-you just like say, naturally-born American citizens, you're on par with a member of an underground racist, white, paramilitary group and an all-around bad person. But if you do support the "rights" of illegal immigrants, you're a good person. Aye, the tolerance of the so-called "tolerant" crowd. Any wonder the NYTimes has been such an abysmal failure of late?
Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly launched a blistering attack on The New York Times over an editorial suggesting the talk show host has “white supremacist views” regarding immigration.
“I’m taking on this New York Times,” O’Reilly said on “The O’Reilly Factor” on Monday night. “I mean, it’s war. Absolute war.”
The Times’ editorial on Sunday, Jan. 30 stated: “It’s easy to mock white-supremacist views as pathetic and to assume that nativism in the age of Obama is on the way out . . . But racism has a nasty habit of never going away, no matter how much we may want it to, and thus the perpetual need for vigilance.
“It is all around us . . . Google the words ‘Bill O’Reilly’ and ‘white, Christian male power structure’ for another YouTube taste of the Fox News host assailing the immigration view of the ‘far left’ (including The Times) as racially traitorous.”
The Times ran a follow-up editorial Monday saying that O’Reilly “presents himself as a defender of the ‘white, Christian male power structure.’”
That night, O’Reilly told viewers that Times editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal was “dishonest and intentionally misleading Times readers.” He called the editorial “more lies by The New York Times over the illegal immigration issue,” and said the paper favored blanket amnesty for illegal immigrants.
She's being hailed as the "face of the economic crisis," and now Henrietta Hughes has become something of a media star after reaching out to President Obama in an emotional plea for help.Amen! Praise Him! Hallelujah! The Messiah is soooooo good to us! This homeless woman appears at an Obama rally (what a coincidence!), blubbers on about her trials and tribulations and the Messiah leans down, kisses her on the cheek and tells her that everything's gonna be alright. And now, just like Jesus when he cured the blind, Henrietta Hughes is no longer homeless! Ol' Henrietta now has her own rent-free house, kitchen and website (no word on whether or not Henrietta accepts Paypal) with jobs offers and money from around the world pouring in! Praise Jesus! No, Praise The Almighty Messiah! Forget pursuing hard work, get your ass down to the next Obama town hall meeting and tell your sob story!
Her message: My son and I are homeless, and we need immediate help.
"I have an urgent need, unemployment and homelessness, a very small vehicle for my family and I to live in," Hughes told Obama Tuesday at a town hall rally in Fort Myers, Florida, as he pushed for passage of his stimulus plan in the Senate. "The housing authority has two years waiting lists, and we need something more than the vehicle and the parks to go to. We need our own kitchen and our own bathroom. Please help."
Hughes said she had been homeless after her son lost his job and, subsequently, their home. Although her son has been looking for work, Hughes says, so far, no luck.
The Fort Myers-Cape Coral area -- in heavily Republican Lee County, which went for GOP presidential nominee John McCain in the 2008 election -- has seen record housing foreclosure rates.
According to the White House, the area had the highest foreclosure rate in the nation last year, with 12 percent of housing units receiving a foreclosure-related notice.
Median housing prices in the Fort Myers metropolitan area have plummeted from $322,000 in December 2005 to less than $107,000 in December 2008, the Obama administration notes.
And nearly 12,000 jobs have been lost in Fort Myers in the past year.The president offered Hughes a kiss on the cheek and a promise: "We're going to do everything we can to help you, but there are a lot of people like you."

Another leftwing journalist scribe goes out of their way to protect and serve the liberal agenda, no matter what the law says:
Is this woman that dense? MySpace is one of the most popular online social network's in the world. By declaring her depravity for women on MySpace, Amy Brian was clearly putting her business out there for the world to see. Whether you agree or disagree with "Don't ask. Don't Tell" or not, it is still the law. Funny too that the alternative lifestyle supporters in the media never ask what our troops think about gays serving openly there, much less acknowledge the dangerous acts of sexual proclivity that white gays, in particular, engage in. Bottom line, the military should not be used for social engineering.
Does having a MySpace page on which you don't hide the fact that you're a lesbian constitute "telling" the military about your sexual orientation? What about kissing your girlfriend in the checkout line in Wal-Mart? It does if you serve in the Kansas Army National Guard, which recently discharged an Iraq war vet for being a lesbian.
Since "don't ask, don't tell" went into effect in 1993, nearly 12,500 service members have been discharged for being gay, lesbian or bisexual. Three-quarters of Americans think gay members of the military should be able to serve openly. Tell us again why ending the policy has to wait?

You know what? He's probably right. As long as they get their share of the fat, does the average American really care about all the pork in this stimulus bill? Have they even bothered to read any of it? Probably not. Meanwhile we'll probably just continue to go broke.
, urgently pressuring lawmakers to approve a massive economic recovery bill, turned his first news conference Monday night into a determined defense of his emergency plan and an offensive against Republicans who try to "play the usual political games."BO just doesn't have the look or aura of a man who happens to be the leader of the free world. It was thing one about President Bush, no he never a great speaker, but when you saw him you knew who was the man in charge. Bush had the poise and he knew how to control the crowd and manage the room. Obama looks down way too much, like he's nervous or better yet still searching for the words to one of his old campaign speeches. Notice too that he left the room as soon as his time was up, like he couldn't wait to get out of there. In three weeks we've seen that look too many times--one of a man on the job who can't wait to punch his ticket in so he and run home to the wife and kids. But this isn't AnyDude USA with a 9 to 5 job, this is supposed to this President.
He said the recession has left the nation so weak that only the federal government can "jolt our economy back to life." And he declared that failure to act swiftly and boldly "could turn a crisis into a catastrophe."
"The party now is over," he said.
Speedy passage of legislation to pump federal money into the crippled economy, once seemingly assured with bipartisan support, has become a much heavier lift and a major test of Obama's young presidency. With more than 11 million Americans now out of work, Obama defended his program against Republican criticism that it is too big, loaded with pork-barrel spending and won't create jobs.

Alex Rodriguez admitted Monday that he used performance-enhancing drugs from 2001-03, saying he did so because of the pressures of being baseball's highest-paid player.I'm biased because I'm no Yankee fan (instead I root for the Mets, blame my mother), but should anyone really be shocked by this news? Especially after Jose Canseco recently outed the Steroid Era (with the Mitchell Report nailing it later on) in that "Juiced" book. For years Alex Rodriguez has proven himself to be nothing but a phony--a ballplayer more concerned about his own greatness than that of his team. Is it any wonder why the Yankees haven't even made a World Series since A-Fraud put on the famous pinstripes?
"When I arrived in Texas in 2001, I felt an enormous amount of pressure. I felt like I had all the weight of the world on top of me and I needed to perform, and perform at a high level every day," the New York Yankees star said in an interview with ESPN that was broadcast Monday shortly after it was recorded.
His admission came two days after Sports Illustrated reported he tested positive for steroids in 2003, one of 104 players who tested positive during baseball's survey testing, which wasn't subject to discipline and was supposed to remain anonymous.
"And I did take a banned substance and, you know, for that I'm very sorry and deeply regretful. And although it was the culture back then and Major League Baseball overall was very -- I just feel that -- You know, I'm just sorry. I'm sorry for that time. I'm sorry to fans. I'm sorry for my fans in Texas. It wasn't until then that I ever thought about substance of any kind, and since then I've proved to myself and to everyone that I don't need any of that."
The 33-year-old All-Star third baseman was regarded by many in baseball as the most likely to break Bonds' record of 762. He's already 12th on the career list with 553 homers, 209 behind Bonds.
People will naively congratulate A-Fraud for telling the truth, but this is the same guy who lied to Katie Couric's face (and the American public) about ever taking steroids just a couple of years ago. In other words A-Fraud is only coming out as a cheater now because he got caught. From his dismal postseason numbers to cheating openly on his wife to former manager Joe Torre calling him out for being "selfish" in his new book, Alex Rodriguez has been nothing but a disappointment and a failure as a Yankee. I'd say get rid of him, but considering that the Yankees are about nothing but making money these days, they deserve 9 more years of A-Fraud.

Resident Hollywood liberal Sean Penn is angry at Blacks for overwhelmingly supporting Proposition 8. After all, according to the backwards logic of white liberals if anyone should understand the "plight" of gays it's us Blacks:
Last night's L.A. Times Gold Derby blog presented a video clip of a somber Sean Penn at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards, where his portrayal of gay icon Harvey Milk had won the Best Actor Award. Penn did not look to be in the mood for a political discussion, but when asked by Tom O'Neil and Scott Feinberg about the passage of Proposition 8, the anti-gay marriage initiative, Penn didn't hold back.I'll be the first to admit that Sean Penn is a great actor, but besides his thespian skills he's proven to be nothing but a jerk. Gay people and their advocates on the Left can't argue for gay marriage on its own merit so they need to hijack the civil rights movement, a movement born from 400 years of cattle slavery, racist Jim Crow laws and a struggle to be treated as first-class citizens. Continuing to equate a deviant behavior with race is not only offensive, but condescending--so typical of white liberals who continue to use blacks for their deviant social culture. Funny too that Penn, who was raised by a Catholic mother and a Jewish father, hasn't mention his parents religious sects' role in Prop 8 getting passed.
"The Proposition 8 thing was a fiasco in California. Mormon movement should be ashamed of itself, the black constituency that supported Prop 8 should be ashamed of itself." Penn was less certain of whether or not a pre-election day release of Milk would have helped beat Prop 8.
Grammy award-winning singer and Academy award-winning actress Cher told CNSNews.com that living under Republican rule almost “killed" her, and she does not understand why anyone would want to be a Republican.Really now, derangement like this doesn't even deserve a response. I mean does anyone under 30 even know who Cher is?
She also said that President Barack Obama’s “intelligence” and “spirit” are “so great” he will be able to do “more than anyone could possibly do.”
“His intelligence is so great and his spirit is so great, I believe he will be able to do as much if not more than anyone could possibly do,” Cher told CNSNews.com at the RIAA/Feeding America inaugural ball. “I just think he’s totally the right person at this time in our history," she said.
"He brings something more in his spirit than maybe another president could be even with the same intelligence. There’s something about him that brings more with his spirit, and that’s what Americans need right now. Republicans almost killed me.”
When asked to explain how Republicans somehow “killed” her, Cher was not specific. “You know what? I have so – I try to be charitable and there are some really good Republicans, but I just don’t understand how anyone would want to be a Republican. I just can’t figure it. I don’t understand,” she said. “If you’re poor, if you’re any kind of minority – gay, black, Latino, anything. If you’re not a rich – I don’t know. If you’re not a rich born-again-Christian, I don’t get it.”
