Palin Defends Killing of Wolves in Alaska
Wonder why this story didn’t make the front page?
Crosses used in an antiabortion demonstration at George Washington University were defaced last week, and the school’s College Democrats organization has apologized for the vandalism.
The crosses had been stored in a locked office shared by College Republicans and College Democrats. The Democrats issued a statement saying one of their members had admitted responsibility and had been expelled from the group but did not name the alleged offender.
GWU’s chapter of the Young America’s Foundation, a conservative group, had planted 1,100 small white crosses on university grounds on the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.
Student Republicans later found drawings and writing in black ink on some of the crosses. One depicted a stick figure of a crucified Jesus. Another, hung upside down, had a condom stretched over it. One had the name of a College Democrats leader.
Could it be because the perpetrator was a member of the College Democrats?
One wonders if a similar action by the College Republicans would have been buried in section B, or trumpeted on the front page.
Actually, I take that back. I don’t wonder… the answer, given the current media, is obvious.
Watch this and listen closely to the number of Americans that Nancy Pelosi says will lose their job every day:
She says 500 million Americans will lose their job every day that we don’t pass the so-called stimulus bill.
Only one catch… according to the US Census Bureau, the current US population is only about 300 million.
Therefore, according to Pelosi, not only will every single American alive today be jobless tomorrow (even those too young or old to work), but so will nearly 200 million more!
Sometimes the truth comes out when one least expects it:
Officials said yesterday that myriad tax questions had been posed to Daschle, Killefer and Geithner. But the problems were largely dismissed as less important than the nominees’ qualifications for the major tasks they were expected to confront in office, the officials said.
One person familiar with the appointment process said Obama and his top advisers were concerned about the possibility of political “combustion” occurring over the tax issues. “People were not unaware that might happen,” the official said. But they believed that Geithner and Daschle were uniquely qualified.
“We knew he’d get punched around on this, and that he had made a painful mistake,” John D. Podesta, who co-chaired Obama’s transition team, said of Daschle. “But we believed he could be confirmed and that he was — and I still believe this — the right guy for the job of leading the department and finally getting health-care reform across the finish line.”
Okay, so, let’s review… the Obama team knew about these three nominee’s tax problems but nominated them anyway, figuring that they could somehow sneak or force them through.
That right there says a lot about the governing philosophy of the Obama Administration.
According to The Cato Institute, quoting the Washington Post (hardly a bastion of conservatism or libertarianism), zero.
People like Robert Reich, who try to back up the claims of President Obama and Vice President Biden that “economic advisers across the political spectrum support Obama’s plan,” have managed to come up with two names of economists who support the stimulus plan and would not be regarded as left of center: Martin Feldstein of Harvard, a former top economic adviser to President Reagan, and Mark Zandi of Moody’s, who was an adviser to John McCain last fall. And now the Washington Post has blown both of those names out of the water. Leaving — by my count — exactly zero libertarian or conservative economists on that much-touted spectrum.
I expect that talking-points lefties will still try to use the “across the spectrum” claim, but now it’s easily debunked, and by one of the left’s own favorite sources.
Gotta love it.
