Thank You Ken Cuccinelli! Virginia AG Filing Emergency Legislation To Address Presidential Primary Ballot

It's great to live in a state with an excellent attorney general like Ken Cuccinelli (Fox News).

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is intervening in his state's presidential primary dispute and plans to file emergency legislation to address the inability of most Republican presidential candidates to get their name on the ballot, Fox News has learned.

Meanwhile, four GOP candidates on Saturday joined fellow candidate Rick Perry's lawsuit against the state, urging the Board of Elections to either allow them on the ballot or at least refrain from taking any action until a Jan. 13 court hearing.

Only Mitt Romney and Ron Paul qualified for the Virginia primary, a contest with 49 delegates up for grabs. Perry and the four candidates joining the lawsuit -- Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum and Jon Huntsman -- did not.

The failure of other candidates to qualify led to complaints that the 10,000-signature requirement is too stringent.

Cuccinelli, who is a Republican, shared the concerns and plans to take them to the legislature while the candidates work through the courts.

"Recent events have underscored that our system is deficient," he said in a statement Saturday. "Virginia owes her citizens a better process. We can do it in time for the March primary if we resolve to do so quickly."

Cuccinelli's proposal is expected to state that if the Virginia Board of Elections certifies that a candidate is receiving federal matching funds, or has qualified to receive them, that candidate will upon request be automatically added to the ballot.

Two former Democratic attorneys general are backing the move, along with a former Democratic state party chairman and a former Republican state party chairman.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I've never seen a Presidential election (exception being the 2008 Democrat primary) where the GOP has tried to kick as many people off the ballot in favor of the "establishment candidate."

Now, in Tennesse, Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum failed to qualify delegates on that state's primary ballot. What is going on here?

If you ask me, this also points to a failure of leadership in the RNC. Reince Preibus is doing an awful job as head of the RNC and is no where to be found on this. He should resign and someone who has the gonads to want to actually win an election should be in charge.

Occupy Wall Street In New York -- Five Protesters Strong!

Linked by Marathon Pundit...thanks!

Mrs. MIM went up to New York City this week with her parents for a brief trip. On Wednesday, she and my father-in-law, a working journalist and radio host, went down to visit the Occupy Wall Street squatters to interview them.

They were there, five protesters strong! (photos from Mrs. MIM)

Notice the hippie guy with the Occupy DC sign? I told Mrs. MIM it kind of resembled this clown who became a YouTube sensation with the video below back in October.

Then it came out that the hippie who want ranting about rich people was (drumroll) a trust fund kid! (Neal Boortz).

By now you’ve seen the rant from Conan the Occupier in New York City. If you haven’t seen it as yet, click here and be sitting down. His name is Edward T. Hall III, and he’s a grad student at Columbia in NYC. If you have trouble understanding this useful idiot as he cries and screams, let me help you with a partial translation. The theme: He doesn’t seem to like rich people. He’s referring to the people in the business high-rises surrounding Zuccotti Park …

Now bear in mind that through this entire rant this kid is crying and screaming at the top of his lungs. Also bear in mind that this kid is a trust fund baby. He has wealthy parents and has neither had, nor will he have for some time to come the necessity of working to sustain himself. He’s a professional student … now with some actual teaching responsibilities at Columbia.

So where are the rest of them? Did the Soro$ money funding these people dry up?

The remnants of the squatters are getting in trouble in other parts of the country though. In Charlotte, NC, four of them were arrested for burning an American flag (WCNC, via Sister Toldjah).

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrested four men for arson after they allegedly burned two American flags near an Occupy camp in uptown on Friday.

Police said Jason Bargert, 28, Michael Behrle, 23, Stephen Morris, 20, and Alex Tyler, 19, were charged with arson and setting fire to woods.

The four men burned the flags while in the area of tents for Occupy Charlotte, which is located on the lawn area of City Hall on East Trade Street, according to the police report.

Occupy Charlotte released a statement to NewsChannel 36 saying that the flag burning incident does reflect the people or message of their group.

The statement goes on to stay that Occupy Charlotte is no longer affiliated with the camp at East Trade Street, where the flag burning incident took place.


The squatters are also planning to squat at the Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena, CA. I mean, really, do you people have any class? You're taking an opportunity that people who build floats, march in bands, work hard to be a part of. I marched with my high school band in the parade on New Years 1987 and am aware of the hard work in filling out the application, rehearsing, fundraising, etc, all to march five miles down Colorado Ave. and be seen by viewers across the nation. And these squatters want to ruin this moment for those participating in it.

It's going to be an interesting and eventful 2012.

Tell Tim Kaine To Keep His Damn Dishonest Ads Off Conservative Blogs

Just as that uncivil monster known as Alan Grayson has had his ads pop up on conservative blogs, so has Tim Kaine, the former part-time governor of Virginia / DNC chair who is running for the retiring Jim Webb's US Senate seat.

Kaine's ads are attacks on the Tea Party and Citizens United (who won the lawsuit that showed McLame/Feingold as unconstitutional because it restricted free political speech. (See examples of screenshots I've taken over the last couple of months that blog ad services have placed at random on conservative blogs).

Liberals like Kaine don't want to run on their record of failure, or of supporting Obama's failures. Instead, their strategy has been to attack private citizens for holding dissenting opinions from the liberal groupthink.

Since Tim Kaine wants to attack Karl Rove (who I'm admittedly not a fan of), private citizens who make up the Tea Party, and others for "false messages," let me tell you about the Tim Kaine I've been watching over the last four years in Virginia.

As many areas of Virginia made tougher laws against those in the country illegally, Kaine, as Governor, wanted to offer state programs that would act as magnets for illegals to come to the Commonwealth.

Instead of resigning, Kaine became a part-time governor in his last year in office, while becoming head of the DNC.  This included being head of Obama's astroturf organization being run through the DNC, and travelling to events like the ESPY Awards with the DNC was reimbursing his expenses to the Commonwealth.  Kaine also spent $500,000 in Virginia funds for buses to the Obama Immaculation.

Kaine pardoned three men who were imprisoned for life sentences on murder and rape, as their case was being championed by Kaine contributor, novelist John Grisham.  In his last few months as governor, he tried to disenfranchise military voters through his appointed State Board of Election chairwoman.  As he was heading out the doors of his part-time job as Governor, Kaine's parting gift to the Commonwealth was a proposed tax increase that was shot down by current Governor Bob McDonnell.

While representing the DNC, Kaine sided with radicals who wanted to build a mosque near the sacred ground that once housed the World Trade Center in New York under "religious freedom," but as Governor of Virginia, he fired Virginia Police chaplains who ended prayers with "In Jesus Name." Kaine as DNC chir also oversaw not only the failed Obama stimulus, but also Obamacare and the cutting of $500 billion to Medicare to pay for this risky scheme. Kaine called it a great achievement, but it has turned out to be a disaster for working people, as their premiums have shot through the roof (unless of course, you're one of Obama's liberal allies or union supporters who received a waiver). (Video below found at Virginia Right).

So Timmy boy, tell these ad services to keep your damn dishonest ads off of conservative blogs and stick them on Daily Kooks or some other lib website. You're not a moderate, you're not a "Blue Dog." You are just a party hack who would be another vote for more socialism, more taxes, and less freedom.

Just do Virginia and America a favor and go away!

Hamas-Linked CAIR Silences WordPress Blogger Bare Naked Islam

What happened to freedom of speech in America?

First saw this on Gateway Pundit, Zilla of the Resistance has the background:

Bare Naked Islam is a popular and edgy counter-jihad blog that recently found itself in CAIR's cross-hairs because BNI supported the right of home improvement store Lowe's to not be forced to advertise (and pay for said advertising) on a low-rated TV show that tries to whitewash islamic supremacism. CAIR does not like that BNI uses language which does not bow to the cultural marxism of 'political correctness' and tells the truth about the brutal and atrocious crimes against humanity that are committed every single day all over the world by islamic supremacists for islam. So CAIR has been pushing to get the blog Bare Naked Islam shut down, because CAIR hates free speech. I wrote about this a few weeks ago, HERE, and CAIR did manage to get BNI shut down by its host WordPress for about a day, but BNI was back up after removing some comments that visitors had made to the blog that were deemed "offensive". That wasn't good enough for the islamic supremacists who hate free speech though, CAIR (who the federal government has banned the FBI from interacting with due to CAIR's ties to terrorism) has been howling that they want the FBI to investigate BNI and that they want the blog shut down completely.

Today WordPress removed the blog Bare Naked Islam. (h/t iOwnTheWorld and Blazing Cat Fur). It is a sad day in the Dextrosphere and for freedom loving people everywhere. Via Ironic Surrealism:

It is/was a highly successful anti-Islam blog with 15,332,181 hits and counting.
BNI tweets that Hamas/Muslim Brother Hood front group CAIR is the Islamic culprit behind the suspension. Color me not shocked.

BARE NAKED ISLAM has been taken down by WordPress thanks to CAIR terrorists. Looking for a new host now.

Donations can be sent via PayPal here.

I spoke to the owner of BNI via email and she says she'll get the blog back up as soon as she finds a host who is less likely to cave to free speech hating islamobullying; for now you can view a cached page showing the last few BNI posts HERE. The terror-linked, sharia pushing, islamic supremacists at CAIR are quite pleased with themselves about their success in shutting down a blog that told the truth about islamotyranny.

More at American Power. Astute Bloggers writes: TIME TO BOYCOTT SHARIA COMPLIANT WORDPRESS


According to Investigative Project on Terrorism, a federal judge agreed that CAIR has ties to Hamas. CAIR's founder said in 1998 that "The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth."

Will keep watching this for more developments.

Virginia GOP Defiant On Presidential Primary Ballot; Even Requiring a Loyalty Oath To Vote

Not only is the Republican Party of Virginia sticking by their misguided decision to have only Flip Romney and RuPaul on the March Primary Ballot (Washington Examiner).

The conservative Citizens for the Republic and former Democratic Party of Virginia Chairman Paul Goldman said Wednesday that Virginia failed to follow its own laws in determining which candidates should make the ballot. The state delegated its duties to the political parties without double-checking their work, Goldman said.

Virginia requires candidates to submit signatures from 10,000 registered voters, including 400 from each of the state's 11 congressional districts. The rules came under scrutiny after two presidential contenders trying to get on the March 6 ballot -- Gingrich and Texas Gov. Rick Perry -- were rejected because they didn't have enough valid signatures. Only former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas made the Virginia ballot.

....In a statement defending its actions, Virginia Republicans said they also informed candidates in October to get 15,000 signatures and noted that none of the campaigns "offered any complaints until after the Dec. 23 validation process had concluded." Gingrich and Perry "did not come close to the 10,000 valid signature threshold" and were properly disqualified, the party said.

Those challenging the ballot process say it's unlawful because each political party uses a different standard for certifying petitions, and neither party verifies whether a person actually signed the petition. Instead, parties cross-check names and addresses against a database of registered voters.

...but the Commonwealth GOP will require a loyalty oath to vote in the primary (Richmond Times-Dispatch).

The state Republican Party will require voters to sign a loyalty oath in order to participate in the March 6 presidential primary.

Anyone who wants to vote must sign a form at the polling place pledging to support the eventual Republican nominee for president. Anyone who refuses to sign the pledge will be barred from voting.

During a brief meeting Wednesday at the state Capitol, the State Board of Elections voted 3-0 to approve three forms developed by the election board’s staff to implement the loyalty pledge requested by the state GOP.

First they disenfranchise us, then they want our loyalty.

If the RPV is this far in the tank for Mitt Romney, then I say you can take your loyalty oath and stick it! Maybe no one should show up to vote in the primary, since it's rigged anyway.

Newt Ad: Don't Let Liberal GOP Establishment Pick Our Candidate

Newt may not be my first choice for the primary, but I'm in total agreement with him in the following ad: ‘Don’t let the liberal Republican establishment pick our candidate’

And the liberal GOP establishment includes Ann Coulter, who remains stuck on stupid.

Six Days Until Iowa Caucus: A Last Look At The Candidates & My Endorsement For GOP Nominee

Well folks, we're down to the homestretch. In six days, the selection will officially begin, in Iowa, for who will run on the Republican side to face and defeat Richard Milhous Obama, who is, in my mind, the worst President in American history.

In doing our selection, I think it is imperative that we are able to select a candidate who will, as Ronald Reagan told CPAC in 1975, raise "a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people."

There is no perfect candidate, nor will there ever be. This is just one blogger's take on all the candidates, and the person whom I have decided I would choose based on who closely represents the principles I believe in. I will say that though I have made a selection of who I would like to support (but may not get to vote for, thank you Virginia GOP), I will do my best to be fair to covering other candidates here during the Primary.

Starting with the front-runners:

MITT ROMNEY: As I have said here previously, I cannot in good conscience support Mitt Romney either in the primary or if (God forbid) he becomes the GOP nominee. He would be the candidate Obama would easily defeat. On almost every issue important to conservatives, Romney has taken both sides. His socialized medicine program in Massachusetts was the basis of Obamacare, the biggest hindrance to job creation in America today. Romney is unrepentant of this government takeover of health care under his watch as governor. This will take the public opposition of Obamacare off the table, and the Obama Attack Machine will use Romney's ties with Bain Captial as a way attack him as part of eeeevillll Wall Street, pandering to the Occupy squatters. Romney is similar to Obama in many ways. He is secretive--he said he will not release his tax returns, nor make public his donors, and also destroyed e-mails, etc, that record his time as Massachusetts governor. He's incredibly ambitious too. Where many of the other candidates have been legislating, governing, or running businesses, Romney has been running for President since 2007. He has a mean streak. His surrogates were attacking Sarah Palin even before the 2008 election, and witness his mean attacks against Newt Gingrich. However, he is unwilling to call Obama a socialist. Romney is not an agent for right change, nor is he a conservative. If he were President, his term would be simply marking time until the next liberal Democrat is elected in four years.

NEWT GINGRICH: I could support Newt if he were the nominee, but he is not my choice in the primary. Don't get me wrong. Newt is the most experienced politician in the race, and someone who has had a number of good ideas. His Contract with America was what brought about the 1994 Republican Revolution, and the first GOP majority Congress in a generation. From that, welfare was reformed, taxes cut, and the budget was balanced. But that was also Newt's downfall. After the government shutdown of 1995 was blamed on him, Newt began to, in my eyes, try to appear more "moderate" and "reasonable" after being looked at as a meanie by the lib media. There's the rubbing elbows with Al Sharpton, Hillary, and Nancy Pelosi, as well as endorsement of Dede Scazafava, and standing by Colin Powell in 2009 after Powell attacked former VP Dick Cheney and Rush Limbaugh for their cricisms of Obama. This is part of the problem some have with Newt, they're not sure what they're going to get with him.

RON PAUL: No way, no how, not ever. The fact that this loon was even let into the debating process was a disgrace. Twenty years ago, Pat Buchanan ran that bigot David Duke out of the party when he tried to run for President as a Republican, why couldn't anyone run this anti-Israel, anti-Semitic, 9/11 troofer, blame-America-firster out of the party? Paul is a cult leader and the antihesis of anything a Republican stands for. The only difference between him and the Rev. Jim Jones is the vats of Kool Aid.

So that leaves Rick Santorum, who I like and he is great on social issues, but that's about all he's known for. Jon Huntsman, who is too much of a 1940s isolationist mixed in with Romney liberalism, and Michele Bachmann. Now, I originally was drawn to Bachmann. I love her, and she's been a great voice for conservatism in Congress, taking the banner of the Tea Party and fighting the increase in the debt limit and leading the repeal on Obamacare. But she's hurt herself tremendously in the process of her candidacy for President. Having Ed Rollins run her campaign and attacking Sarah Palin, and yet she stood by him when people were speaking out about him didn't help. Then there were the attacks with untrue information on Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich. It seems as if Bachmann has tried to kneecap every frontrunner, but for some mysterious reason, she has not gone after Mitt Romney. Why is that Michelle? Is a possible VP run in the making?

So that brings me to the candidate I've decided to endorse (click below for next page).

Perry Sues Virginia Over Ballot Exclusion

And from all I've posted the last couple of days, he probably has a pretty good case to stand on (Fox News, via Doug Powers at MM).

Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s campaign announced Tuesday it will file a lawsuit in an attempt to get on the ballot for Virginia’s Republican presidential primary.

Perry failed to qualify for the ballot after the Republican Party of Virginia said his campaign had not filed the required 10,000 signatures.

“Virginia ballot access rules are among the most onerous and are particularly problematic in a multi-candidate election,” Perry campaign communications director Ray Sullivan said in a statement published by National Journal.

In the statement announcing the legal challenge, Perry’s campaign said only 119,034 Virginians voted in the 2008 Republican primary, making the requirement of 10,000 signatures “unrealistic and onerous.”

Not to mention that no verification was done in previous elections, and the Virginia GOP made the change last month.  No write ins are allowed, either.

Oh Great! Newt Said Romneycare Had "Potential" In 2006

Well this is really going to gum up the works, as found by the Wall Street Journal (Hot Air).

So how does Newt Gingrich square this circle? If you’ve been following the Ron Paul newsletter controversy, this is going to sound dreadfully familiar:

R.C. Hammond, a spokesman for Mr. Gingrich, said the April 2006 essay shouldn’t be read as an endorsement of Mr. Romney’s health plan. He noted that it raised several questions about the Massachusetts effort, including whether the plan would work in the state. “Being critical…isn’t endorsing it,” he said.

Mr. Hammond said the Newt Notes essay wasn’t written by Mr. Gingrich himself. The Journal was able to view a copy using a web search engine that archives old and even deleted versions of Web pages.

Well, let’s be fair. Newt published that newsletter, and it’s almost certain that he profited from it. That makes him responsible for what got published under his byline, does it not? In fact, let’s recall that Gingrich attacked Paul last week for claiming not to know what Paul himself had published and sold (at a significant level of revenue). Gingrich was right in that criticism, but it applies here as well. For the last several months, Gingrich has attacked Romney for this plan, but now we’re supposed to ignore the fact that Gingrich’s newsletter offered significant, if somewhat qualified, praise for RomneyCare?

Nor was that the only entry in the newsletter series:

A follow-up August 2006 newsletter from the center called Mr. Romney’s plan “the most interesting effort to solve the uninsured problem in America today.” It praised “a Republican governor working with a Democratic state legislature to find a bipartisan reform that is based on market-oriented principles.”

The 2006 essays aren’t signed, but the Center for Health Transformation’s inaugural newsletter said the updates would be “periodically sent to members of the [center] from Newt, providing an insider’s view of key events and opportunities for transformation.” A sign-up page for Newt Notes now appears on the candidate’s campaign website.

These days, Gingrich attacks the plan for not hewing to free-market principles, a position with which I agree. Perhaps Gingrich believes this honestly now, too, but it seems that his view on RomneyCare has at best evolved since 2006.

That's what he would use as a response, just as he has the support he had in the 1990s for an individual mandate. It certainly is better than Romney being unapologetic for Romneycare. But in a debate against Obama, I fear it might be cancel out the issue.

Here's the entire response to Romneycare on the newsletter.

ACTION ALERT: Contact Virginia GOP To Include Perry & Gingrich On Primary Ballot

Doug Ross, via Legal Insurrection, has sent out an Action Alert with the contact information for the Virginia Republican Party, to ask them to include Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich on the March Presidential Primary ballot.
Action Alert: I urge you to contact the Virginia GOP and demand that they include Gingrich and Perry on the ballot. Be polite, but firm. There’s no excuse for issuing new rules at the last minute that just happen to exclude the leading candidates. In fact, it’s an outrage.
• Email: Contact Form
• Phone: 804-780-0111
• Fax: 804-343-1060
• Facebook:
• Twitter: @va_gop

As reported before, the requirements were changed in November, after a lawsuit.

To further illustrate how dysfunctional this is, keep in mind that an Obama-tied, union led recall against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker will allow Adolf Hitler or Mickey Mouse on the petition as a valid signature.

The Other McCain has more.

Obama Honors Kwanzaa: A Phony Leftist Holiday For Torturers and Terrorists

Richard Milhous Obama celebrated Hanukkah ten days early, and lit all the candles on the Menorah, but he found time to send a "greeting" just in time for the first day of Kwanzaa.

Michelle and I send our warmest wishes to all those celebrating Kwanzaa this holiday season.

Today marks the beginning of the week-long celebration honoring African American heritage and culture through the seven principles of Kwanzaa -- unity, self determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith.

We celebrate Kwanzaa at a time when many African Americans and all Americans reflect on our many blessings and memories over the past year and our aspirations for the year to come.

And even as there is much to be thankful for, we know that there are still too many Americans going through enormous challenges and trying to make ends meet. But we also know that in the spirit of unity, or Umoja, we can overcome those challenges together.

As families across America and around the world light the red, black, and green candles of the Kinara this week, our family sends our well wishes and blessings for a happy and healthy new year.

Parades were held for this "holiday down in Los Angeles (CBS). Even postage stamps and gift cards at various department stores are sold celebrating this "holiday."

So what's the big deal?

Kwanzaa is not an "African" holiday, but a made-up holiday started in Los Angeles in 1966 by some black nationalist who is now a college professor named Ron Karenga. Here's Karenga in a video below telling more about this "holiday."

"I created Kwanzaa for three basic reasons...the first being to reaffirm our rootedness in African culture. Because even though we are African people, due to the holocaust of enslavement, we were lifted out of our own history, and made a footnote and forgotten casualty in European (read "Whitey") history."

Karenga also told the Washington ComPost (Discover the Networks):

"People think it's African, but it's not...I came up with Kwanzaa because black people in this country wouldn't celebrate it if they knew it was American. Also, I put it around Christmas because I knew that's when a lot of bloods would be partying."

What you won't probably hear about Karenga was that he was a member of a terrorist group called US (United Slaves) that was involved in a shooting with rival Black Panthers in which two of the panthers were killed. In 1971, Karenga was sentenced to one to ten years in prison for felonious assault. According to an LA Times article from 1971, quoted in Wikipedia.

"Deborah Jones, who once was given the Swahili title of an African queen, said she and Gail Davis were whipped with an electrical cord and beaten with a karate baton after being ordered to remove their clothes. She testified that a hot soldering iron was placed in Miss Davis' mouth and placed against Miss Davis' face and that one of her own big toes was tightened in a vise. Karenga, head of US, also put detergent and running hoses in their mouths, she said. They also were hit on the heads with toasters."

Three years later, the seven principles of Kwanzaa became the seven principles of the Bay Area leftist terrorist group called the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA). Who were they?

The SLA killed a black Oakland, CA school superintendent, kidnapped newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst, converted her by brainwashing, robbed banks, were involved in bombings and one killing during a Sacramento bank robbery.

In 2004, Les Kinsolving wrote of a debate he had with Karenga back in the 1960s.

While I was an Episcopal parish priest in Northern California in the 1960s, I was challenged to debate Malcolm X – which I accepted.

When I arrived at an all-black audience in West Oakland (home of the Black Panthers), I discovered that a substitute had been made for Malcolm.

Mr. Karenga was the most foul-smelling person I had ever sat next to – which, I strongly suspect, was part of his debating technique.

Karenga's argumentation was equally foul – an exceptionally hostile recitation of extremist black-power claims, which I found to be utterly preposterous. And I said so, and explained why.

That led to ominous sounds from this all-black audience – that Karenga began to manipulate.

Suddenly, there came a strong vocal intervention – by the Rev. Booker T. Anderson, pastor of the Easter Hill United Methodist Church, in nearby Richmond, Calif.

Booker was my fellow participant in the California delegation on the final day of the Selma March into Montgomery, Ala. And he told this angry crowd that I had "not only talked-the-talk, but walked-the-walk" with him.

That very probably saved me from either serious or fatal injury.

Discover the Networks also notes that Karenga made excuses for the terrorist attacks of 9/11, and claimed capitalism was the cause of the attacks.

So there you have it, a holiday by a terrorist and a torturer who is also anti-American and Marxist, whose principles were used by another terrorist group.  No wonder Lefties love this holiday.

VA GOP Changed Rules On Ballot Access Last Month After Lawsuit

There's more to the controversy in Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry being disqualified from the Virginia Presidential Primary ballot (Big Government).

But what has not been reported is that in the only other presidential primaries in which Virginia required 10,000 signatures (2000, 2004, and 2008) the signatures were not checked. Any candidate who submitted at least 10,000 raw signatures was put on the ballot. In 2000, five Republicans qualified: George Bush, John McCain, Alan Keyes, Gary Bauer, and Steve Forbes. In 2004 there was no Republican primary in Virginia. In 2008, seven Republicans qualified: John McCain, Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Rudy Giuliani, Fred Thompson, and Alan Keyes.

The only reason the Virginia Republican Party checked the signatures for validity for the current primary is that in October 2011, an independent candidate for the legislature, Michael Osborne, sued the Virginia Republican Party because it did not check petitions for its own members, when they submitted primary petitions. Osborne had no trouble getting the needed 125 valid signatures for his own independent candidacy, but he charged that his Republican opponent’s primary petition had never been checked, and that if it had been, that opponent would not have qualified. The lawsuit, Osborne v Boyles, cl 11-520-00, was filed in Bristol County Circuit Court. It was filed too late to be heard before the election, but is still pending. The effect of the lawsuit was to persuade the Republican Party to start checking petitions. If the Republican Party had not changed that policy, Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry would be on the 2012 ballot.

More here.

Let me remind you too, that a big northeastern snob GOP bundler named Georgette Mosbacher (who looks like an Australian's nightmare) told reporters back in October, “We do not consider Perry a factor… We know who will be our nominee.”

The establishment is trying to shove Romney down our throat.

Signatures For Virginia Primary Gathered By Perry, Gingrich May Have Been Unfairly Excluded

This is an interesting development (VA Right, via Doug Ross).

I’m no attorney but I do know how to find and read the laws of Virginia.

Various reports have stated that the signatures turned in by Newt Gingrich included at least 2,000 that were invalidated because there was no address given with the signature.

If this were a Virginia Statewide office, that would be correct. But this is a Presidential Primary. And while the rules are similar, they are actually addressed in two separate sections of the Virginia Code.

There is a requirement in a Statewide General Election that the address be included, but there is no such requirement for a presidential primary. The number of signatures are the same, 10,000 and 400 per Congressional District. But the address requirements are different.

VA Right also includes the two sections of Virginia Election Code at question:

I know from Friday that Perry's campaign was going to contest the ruling, I'm guessing Newt's will as well.  I'm hoping their lawyers are aware of this.

This has been a real heated topic among a lot of conservatives and Republican voters in the state. Though I really want to stay away from conspiracy theories, and especially when there is no proof, you can't help but wonder if Romney has been greasing the skids in various areas in his favor, as he's essentially been running for President for the last five years. Just the fact that he and the loon Ron Paul would be our only choices raises suspicions, especially since Gov. Bob McDonnell has appeared with Romney at a lot of events, including one last month at Fairfax County GOP headquarters.

Newt & Perry Disqualified By Virginia GOP For Primary Ballot...Our Choices For President? Romney Or Paul

Well, we're so screwed!

The Virginia Republican Party has certified the petitions for the Presidential Primary in March and there will only be two choices for Republicans / conservatives to vote for to nominate for President: Flip Romney or the loon Ron Paul.

No write-in candidates are allowed in the primary, just in the general election.

Rick Perry had submitted 11,911 signatures, while Gingrich delivered 11,050. VA-GOP rules say 10,000 signatures must be gathered to put a candidate's name on the ballot, including 400 from each of the Commonwealth's 11 congressional districts.

Perry's campaign is going to contest the ruling, according to RedState. No word from Newt's campaign.

Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum and Jon Huntsman did not submit signatures.

Enthused about voting in 2012? Yeah, me too. So far, the only reason I will be voting is to select Jamie Radtke to be the Republican candidate for US Senate.

Obama Jets Off To His $4 Million Christmas Vacation, Contrast That With Reagan & G.W. Bush Staying In DC

Now that the petulant child got his way (thanks to the spineless GOP leadership in Congress) on the payroll tax holiday, Richard Milhous Obama has jetted off to Hawaii for his $4 million Christmas vacation, which you and I are paying for.

But there is an interesting tidbit to how two President's whom liberals detest spent their Christmas.

LA Slimes, from today in 1988.

Twenty-eight days before they will make it their permanent address, President and Mrs. Reagan moved into their $2.5-million Bel-Air home Friday.

They are spending their first Christmas out of the White House since they moved into it on Jan. 20, 1981.

Similarly, George W. Bush spent Christmas Day in DC, and then went to his Crawford, TX ranch afterwards. Both Reagan and Bush did this so that Secret Service agents could spend Christmas with their families.

Not so with the Obamas, who think they come first.

Racist Bastard Eric Holder (Who Dropped NBPP Voter Intimdation Case) Says South Carolina Voter ID Law Discriminates Against Minorities

This is breaking news on a Friday before Chirstmas. The InJustice Department is making sure all the vote fraud that needs to occur next year to re-elect the Obama Regime will go as planned (Washington ComPost, via Weasel Zippers).

The Justice Department on Friday entered the divisive national debate over new state voting laws, rejecting South Carolina’s measure requiring photo-identification at the polls as discriminatory against minority voters.

The decision by Justice’s Civil Rights Division could heighten political tensions over the new laws, which critics say could depress turnout among minorities and others who helped elect President Obama in 2008. A dozen states this year passed laws requiring voters to present state-issued photo identification, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

Although Democratic governors vetoed four of the measures, liberal and civil rights groups have raised alarms about the remaining laws. Opponents of the laws say they would discriminate against minorities and others, such as low-income voters, because some don’t have the necessary photo identification and lack the means to easily obtain ID cards.

Under the 1965 Voting Rights Act, several of the states that enacted voter-identification laws are required to receive federal “pre-clearance” to ensure that the changes don’t affect minority political power.

In its first decision on one of those new measures, the Justice Department said Friday that South Carolina’s law will discriminate against minority voters, though the department declined to take a position on whether the alleged discrimination was intentional. The law, passed in May and signed by Gov. Nikki Haley (R), requires voters to show a driver’s license or one of several other forms of photo identification.

Almost 70 percent of Americans believe voter ID laws are NOT discriminatory.   You need an ID to get on an airplane, and ID is required to vote in union elections.  So why not require ID to vote and prove you are who you say you are?

Because all the voter fraud needed to keep Obama in the White House, and get Democrats in control is needed.  Look at what the Democrats are doing in Northern California.  They manipulated an independent commission and were able to squeeze more Democrat-friendly districts in the new redistricting plans in California.

Remember Mexico's PRI Party?  That's what the Democrat Party is becoming.

But racist Eric Holder thinks having voter ID is voter intimidation.  The same Attorney General who didn't care when white people are intimidated from voting by New Black Panthers in Philadelphia in 2008.  So much so that he dropped the case against them.

Holder dropped the case and said the focus on it demeaned "his people."

Eric Holder's people...

It's time to impeach this racist S.O.B. who has abused his office and used law enforcement as a political weapon.

Ridiculous: GOP Congressman To Apologize For Saying (In A Private Conversation) Moochelle Obama Has A Big Butt

If you're talking bad about Moochelle Obama, you might beware if there's spies or "bugs" around that might report your ill comments, as happened to a great Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (NY Daily News).

A Wisconsin lawmaker who made a bid deal of Michelle Obama’s “large posterior” plans to apologize the First Lady.

Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wisc.) was overheard by a Democratic operative at Reagan National Airport on Tuesday talking about a woman who approached him at a church auction to praise President Obama’s wife, Fishbowl DC reported.

After trashing the auction, the cantankerous representative reportedly said he told the woman the First Lady should pay more attention to her diet before lecturing others on theirs.

"She lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself," he reportedly said.

A spokeswoman for Sensenbrenner said he was referring to the First Lady's healthy food initiative.

"He doesn't think the government should be telling Americans what to eat. While he may not agree with all of her initiatives, he plans to contact the First Lady's office to apologize for his comments," the spokeswoman told the Daily News.

And liberals don't want our law enforcement to eavesdrop on suspected al-Queda, but they'll listen to private conversations of Republican congressmen.

Limbaugh On Jeb Bush Write In Candidacy: Palin Is Only Five Letters P-A-L-I-N

Rush Limbaugh, the other day, referenced a column in the Wall Street Journal and that a writer said Jeb Bush could easily win in a write-in candidacy, because he has only four letters that would be easy to write in.

Rush responded that it would be easy to write in Palin, as in Sarah, because it was only five letters, P-A-L-I-N.

Federal Judge Appointed By Obama Blocks South Carolina Immigration Law

One more strike at the rule of law, via a judge appointed by the Obama Regime (Police

A federal judge on Thursday blocked several provisions of South Carolina's tough new immigration law from taking effect New Year's Day, including a requirement for law officers to check the immigration status of people they pull over if officers suspect they are in the country illegally.

U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel's ruling also blocked sections making it a state crime not to carry immigration paperwork or for illegal immigrants to transport or house themselves.

"While the Court does not doubt the good faith of the South Carolina General Assembly in attempting to address the immigration issue, the Constitution of the United States and the (Immigration and Nationality Act) have placed the policy-making role regarding immigration in the hands of the national government," the judge wrote. "It is clear to the Court that Congress did not intend to allow the state any further role beyond arresting persons allegedly harboring or transporting unlawfully present persons."

The federal government sued South Carolina earlier this year over, challenging the constitutionality of the law set to take effect Jan. 1.

Both the federal government and civil rights groups including the American Civil Liberties Union wanted to block the measure on checking the status of suspects pulled over by police. The questioning must follow a stop or arrest for something else, and the measure bars officers from holding someone solely on that suspicion. Opponents said it would encourage racial profiling.

Gergel was nominated by Richard Milhous Obama two years ago, December 22, 2009, to this seat on the Federal Court.

Eric Holder, the racist Attorney General at the InJustice Department, sued South Carolina, as well as Arizona and other states who are trying to do the jobs the federal government refuses to do...enforce our immigration laws. Because registering illegals as new Democrat voters for the Regime is more important than stinking laws!

$40 Doesn't Even Buy A Muffler -- Spineless GOP Caves On 2-Month Payroll Tax Holiday

Someone needs to give Reince Preibus and the GOP leadership a book on messaging and how to lead, because they blew an opportunity to stand on principle and were made to look like fools (ABC News via Michelle Malkin).

House GOP leaders appeared to be adopting a compromise suggested by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to pass the two-month extension in exchange for the Senate appointing members to a conference committee, which will negotiate a longer-term solution. The proposal won a nod of approval from President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

But Boehner was visibly unhappy with the deal.

“Kicking a can down the road for a couple of months does cause problems,” he said at a news conference today.

Perhaps for Christmas, someone can find Mitch McConnell's balls, since he's been missing them for a long time.

With a willing media, Obama played this like a fiddle, which is why he accepted the two-month compromise instead of the year extension he'd originally asked for. And he trotted out a few of his liberal supporters to talk about how pizza night was going to be cut by those mean Republicans who took $40 away from them.

Forty dollars? Don't get me wrong, I know every little bit helps. But I can't get over the imagery of ten years ago, when tax cheat Tom Daschle (then Senate Majority Leader) and little Dick Gephardt demagogued Bush's tax cuts as millionaires getting a Lexus, while the low-income families would only be able to buy a muffler.

A muffler, for what was a $600 check to every American taxpayer under Bush!  Yet Obama thinks he can buy the American voter like a cheap trick for $40. Excuse me, Mr. President but $40 doesn't even buy a muffler.

$40 doesn't make up for the years my parents and others receiving Socialist Security didn't get a cost of living increase.

$40 doesn't pay for the cost of increases in health insurance that occurred, thanks to Obamacare.

$40 doesn't come close to paying for the higher cost of food, gas for our cars, air travel, and other items.

Meanwhile, more of our tax money was used for you to fly your dog back from Hawaii for your photo op in Alexandria on Tuesday at Pet Smart. $40 doesn't pay for some families to go on an overnight visit in the neighboring town or state.

Sure, we could all use an extra $40, even more if you and Dingy Harry would have negotiated for the year long extension. But thanks to you, Mr. President, $40 doesn't pay for a lot these days.

ICE Refuses To Take Illegal Aliens Detained In Maricopa County, AZ

The political witch hunt against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio continues.

Last week, the InJustice Department accused the sheriff of mistreating illegal aliens, after a three year investigation into his department. Anyone with half a brain knows this report was politically motivated, as it was released on the one year anniversary of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry's murder via guns from the DOJ's Fast & Furious program.

Now, word comes that ICE is refusing to take illegals being detained in Maricopa County (KPHO, via FreeRepublic).

Sheriff Joe Arpaio had his first run-in with a group of suspected illegal immigrants since things heated up with the Department of Justice.

The Department of Justice recently revoked his deputies' ability to check immigration status inside Maricopa County jails.

Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Lt. Justin Griffin says they pulled over a vehicle and have eight people in their custody for human smuggling at 35th Avenue and Durango.

Griffin says they attempted to give four of the detainees to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, but MCSO says ICE is refusing to take them.

Griffin says, "We asked ICE, 'If we were DPS, would you take them from us?' And we were told specifically, 'Yes.'"

Stay with and CBS 5 for more on this developing story.

First, the State of Arizona gets sued because the racist Eric Holder won't enforce the laws, then he abuses his power to attack a law enforcement officer for upholding federal immigration law. I haven't even mentioned how Holder is so on the wrong that he has to resort to playing the race card against critics. That's why Holder is a racist...everything is viewed by him in the prism of race, and getting even.

This is one more reason Eric Holder should be impeached, maybe he should even put in one of Sheriff Joe's tent city camps, complete with bologna sandwiches, Fox News and pink underwear.

New Tone: Newt Called "F**kin' Asshole" In Store By A Democrat

Video at American Power:

The guy who did this is a Democrat too.  Gateway Pundit tells us about Tom Sorensen, who also called Iowa Rep. Steve King the same profanity he called Newt.

Well Mr. Sorensen, thanks for illustrating another example of Democrat Incivility, especially after the lecture we received from your President in Tucson almost a year ago.

As a preview of coming attractions, I'm going to have fun over Christmas break, adding this video and other examples of the Democrats' "new tone" in a compilation of Democrat "civility" in 2011.

Why Republicans Are Willing To Lose Battles They Should Be Able To Win

Simple...there is never any willingness to fight liberals. As soon as the Democrats start to demogauge, the GOP gets spooked (Yahoo News).

While Boehner showed no immediate signs of backing down on his demand that Congress tackle the long-term deal to extend a payroll tax cut before it expires at year's end, calls for compromise in his own party grew. With 2012 elections looming, some Republicans fear they will be blamed for letting the tax bill rise on January 1 for 160 million Americans. (M.I.M. Note: That 160 million number is incorrect, h/t Jim Hoft)

Obama telephoned Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, to stress his willingness to work with Congress to get an agreement on the expiring payroll tax cut, White House spokesman Jay Carney said.

Obama asked Boehner and House Republicans to drop their opposition to a short-term measure that the Senate passed overwhelmingly at the weekend and signaled an unwillingness to reopen negotiations now, as Republicans are demanding.

...While Obama is not reopening talks, his gesture on Wednesday might be seen as a nod to Republican demands. It came just hours after Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor called for the president to get directly involved to resolve the dispute.

Meanwhile, House Republicans have been coming under heavy fire from fellow Senate Republicans and conservatives over their refusal to consider the two-month deal eked out by the Senate leadership on Friday night. Senate negotiators had been unable to agree on how to pay for a longer-term extension.

"The smartest thing for (House Republicans) to do would be to pass this (bipartisan Senate bill), live to fight another day and then push for a full-year extension," a senior Senate Republican aide said.

"If and when paychecks get smaller, people are going to ask, 'Why?'" the aide said. "We (Republicans) get the blame, Washington gets the blame and it won't be great for Senate Democrats either," the aide said.

This is the problem with Republicans...messaging. If I were the head of the RNC, I would get out in front of the cameras and show this photo (Gateway Pundit)

and this video...

as an illustration of a President who has time to shop (as well as golf or go on vacation) but never has time to lead on cutting the budget or extending a tax deal. Obama and the Democrats clearly want an issue to bash Republicans with.

Newt Gingrich isn't helping matters either, weighing in and telling the House to accept the two-month deal (WSJ).

“Incumbent presidents have enormous advantages. And I think what Republicans ought to do is what’s right for America. They ought to do it calmly and pleasantly and happily,” Mr. Gingrich said when asked about the clash between President Barack Obama and House Republicans over extension of the payroll tax cut.

Mr. Gingrich made it clear he favored a one-year extension of the two-percentage point payroll tax cut, which expires Jan. 1, not the two-month extension that passed the Senate with bipartisan support. He called the Senate bill “an absurd dereliction of duty.”

“Obama is so inept as a president, and the Congress is so dysfunctional as an institution, that we are lurching from failure to failure to failure,” Mr. Gingrich said.

He offered sympathy to House Speaker John Boehner for having to negotiate with “a Senate majority leader who is totally disruptive and a president who is basically campaigner-in-chief, who has no interest in solving the problems of the American people.”

But he said resistance was doomed.

“It’s very hard for the legislative branch to outperform the president in communications,” he said. “He has all the advantages of being one person. He has all the advantages of the White House as a backdrop, and my experience is presidents routinely win.”

In 1995 and 1996, President Clinton successfully used the bully pulpit to paint his budget fight with then-Speaker Gingrich as a battle over Medicare and environmental protection, not a fight over runaway government spending. The two government shut-downs badly hurt the Republican Party and helped Mr. Clinton get off the mat and cruise to re-election.

This was also the beginning of when Newt became neutered as House Speaker. What got Newt in trouble? Flashback from 1995...

The speaker said Wednesday that tough terms in the government spending bill President Clinton vetoed Monday night were included partly as the result of pique he and Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole felt on Air Force One during flights with the president to and from Israel for the funeral.

Gingrich and Dole had complained earlier about their lack of discussions with Clinton during the 25 hours of flying time. But Gingrich went a step further Wednesday by saying the incident contributed to the government shutdown.

"This is petty," said Gingrich, indicating his displeasure at the way the two were treated. "You've been on the plane for 25 hours and nobody has talked to you and they ask you to get off the plane by the back ramp. ... You just wonder, where is their sense of manners? Where is their sense of courtesy?"

That "snub," the Georgia Republican said, was "part of why you ended up with us sending down a tougher continuing resolution" -- the stopgap spending bill that Clinton vetoed Monday. That veto led to the partial shutdown of the federal government, now in its third day.

Then a photo was released of Clinton, Dole and Newt talking on that flight, and Newt was not only checkmated by the White House, but dubbed by the media as a crybaby.

This is the problem with the Republican leadership, no messaging, and no party discipline, from the Congressional leadership down to the missing-in-action Reince Priebus. So any attempt by the GOP to stand on right principles collaspes like a house of cards when the eunuchs get rubbery in the knees and don't want or care to fight.

FLIP-FLOP ALERT! Romney 2008: Going Into Iraq "Right Decision;" Today: "A Bad Idea"

Give Flip Romney some time, and he'll probably "evolve" (read: flip flop) on an issue.

Like he did today on Iraq (New York Magazine):
In an interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd today, Mitt Romney asserts that “of course” invading Iraq was a bad idea now that we know Saddam Hussein had no weapons of mass destruction. (“If we knew at the time of our entry into Iraq that there were no weapons of mass destruction, if somehow we had been given that information, obviously we would not have gone in.”) Four years ago, Romney said just the opposite. (“It was the right decision to go into Iraq. I supported it at the time; I support it now.”)

The writer of this piece, Jonathan Chait, illustrates why no conservative in their right mind should consider Romney to lead the party against Richard Milhous Obama.

The thing I’ve always found endearing and (to some degree) comforting about Mitt Romney is that his flip-flops betray pure contempt for the Republican base. He treats them like angry children, and their pet issues as emotionally driven symbols of cultural division rather than as serious positions.

Romney reminds me of another Presidential candidate from Massachusetts.

Kinda looks like him too!

But he's "electable." That's the lemon that the Ditzy Chick Ann Coulter, Michael Weiner Savage, National Review (William F. Buckley is spinning in his grave), Nikki Haley, Fatboy Chris Christie, Christine O'Dumbell, and the Obama Lapdog Media are trying to sell us.

Don't buy it!

OUTRAGEOUS! US Capitol Christmas Tree Has No Mention Of Jesus...Except The Chicago Jesus (Obama)

The US Capitol Christmas Tree has become so pagan that one cannot find a mention of the "Reason for the Season," that being the birth of Jesus Christ.

But you will find an ornament expressing love for the liberal's false Messiah, Richard Milhous Obama (CNSNews).
The 63-foot Sierra White Fir lighted at the U.S. Capitol Grounds on Dec. 6 as the official 2011 Capitol Christmas Tree includes a prominently displayed ornament paying homage to President Barack Obama, but includes no ornament readily visible to a person standing near the tree's base that uses the word “Christmas,” or includes an image of the Nativity, or bears the name or image of Jesus Christ.

On the north side of the tree--at a height of about 4 feet and easily visible to people standing near it---there is an ornament that says: “I ♥ President Obama.”

 When asked whether the tree included any ornaments that mention or depict Christmas or the birth of Jesus, the office of the Architect of the Capitol, which is responsible for the tree, told that it “does not have a policy nor any restrictions concerning the themes for the ornaments” that go on the tree. The office could not say, however, whether or not this year’s Christmas tree does in fact include even a single ornament that directly references or depicts Christmas or Christ.

The office of the Architect of the Capitol also did not directly respond to the question of whether any other elected official—in addition to President Obama—is mentioned on any ornament hung on the tree.

“There may be ornaments like those you describe near the top of the tree, or they could have been obscured or moved due to wind or weather,” the architect’s office said in a written statement to

Although the Capitol Christmas Tree, as it stood on the morning of Dec. 19, included no readily visible ornament that mentioned or depicted Christmas or Jesus, it did include one ornament that pointed to the Bible and Psalm 19. This ornament, made from an aluminum pie tin, shows a miner panning for gold with a Bible behind him. There is a gold cross on the cover of the Bible. Around the interior wall of the pie tin, these words are written with what appears to be a blue marker: “More precious than Gold” and “Psalm 19.”

Psalm 19 says in part: “The decrees of the Lord are firm, and all of them are righteous. They are more precious than gold.”

The tree also includes an ornament that from a distance looks like it could be a cross--but closer up turns out to be a road sign, pointing the direction not to California—but 4837 miles to Hawaii.

Other prominent ornaments on the tree tout Disneyland, Hollywood, the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The tree also includes a number of ornaments representing Christmas gift packages. The ribbons on these packages are arranged in a cross pattern--but all of them have "Happy Holidays" ensribed on them.

"Happy Holidays" yeah, I'm sure because the Capitol Office doesn't want to off-eeeeeend anyone.

As a contrast, Jim Hoft, who runs the Gateway Pundit blog just returned from a week long vacation and saw much more public displays saying "Merry Christmas" Communist China, of all places!

Obama, Democrats Play Election Year Politics With Payroll Tax Holiday, Then Have The Audacity To Blame GOP

So who are the real "Do Nothings" in our government?

Richard Milhous Obama and the Democrat leadership--Nancy Bella-Pelosi, Stingy Hoyer and "Dingy" Harry Reid.

The House GOP, as well as some Democrats, voted a week ago to give Obama what he was demogauging his opposition over...another one year extension of the payroll tax holiday.  But then, Obama and his liberal allies decided to move the goal posts, because a crisis must never go to waste. Dingy Harry got through a Senate version that only gave a two month extension, while he told the House "take it or leave it," leaving the issue for Obama to politicize as his re-election comes near.

So who's playing politics?

Brian Preston at PJ Tattler has more:

There really is no end to the cynicism of Barack Obama. Earlier today he slammed the House Republicans for rejecting the Senate’s version of the payroll tax cut extension, accusing the Republicans of “playing politics.” The president called for a year-long extension of the cut on Saturday, saying that it would be “inexcusable” for the cut not to be extended for a full year. Well, apparently now it’s excusable after the House Republicans passed a year-long extension but the Senate Democrats only passed a two-month extension. The House has rejected that and is calling for a conference committee to sort the bill out, but Harry Reid has adjourned the Senate for the holidays, and Nancy Pelosi says she will not appoint any Democrats to the conference committee. A two-month extension does nothing to help businesses or families plan for the long term, but it helps the Senate Democrats avoid the image of selling out their base over the XL Pipeline, a decision on which is included in both versions of the bill. Moments after the president’s remarks, Speaker John Boehner went on the air to call on the president to do something he is apparently utterly incapable of doing — put politics aside for once in his life and lead.

The House Republicans and President Obama are on the same side on the length of the tax cut extension. But Obama is siding with the Senate Democrats for purely political reasons.

Obama tabled the XL Pipeline decision itself for purely political reasons, to appease his green Luddite base, despite the fact that 60% support it and 78% expect it to be approved.

Even in his conduct of the war, this president place politics above all else, including national security.

What else is being delayed? The sustainable growth index for doctors who see patients with Medicare.

Why? So Obama, "Dingy" Harry, Bella-Pelosi and Stingy Hoyer can blame average citizens known as the Tea Party for saying enough of the overspending. All while they pander to a bunch of deadbeats and trust fund kids who crap on police cars, riot, rape and pillage in their temper tantrum against the "One Percent."

This is John Boehner on the floor of the House today.

While Obama wants to lecture him and the GOP about playing games. Well, who is the one playing games asshole? I know where we can cut a little over $4 million and that's taking away the damn keys to Air Force One. Why should you and Moochelle jet off to Hawaii at taxpayer expense and let the rest of us eat cake, while so many Americans can even take an overnight trip say 50 or 100 miles away because of your rotten economy?

You hate the one-percent so much, well quit acting like you're one of them while you're on our dime. In fact, I have a novel idea, spend Christmas at Camp David. Maybe if it's too cold for golf, you'll get some work done.

Why Mitt Romney Will Easily Lose Against Obama....

He's too much of a coward to call Obama a "socialist."

Sure, we won't call Obama names, but we will go all out against Newt Gingrich, bringing up his three marriages, call him "zany" and imply he's not a real conservative.

That's the "kid gloves" strategy the stupid party wants to employ in 2012, and worked so well for John McLame in 2008.

Don't say I didn't tell you so, when you wake up on November 7, 2012 and hear Obama was re-elected...Ann Coulter.

Actress Confronts Moonbat Sean Penn: "You're A Communist A$$hole!"

Appearing on WMAL's Chris Plante show this morning was actress Maria Conchita Alonso, who was born in Cuba and raised in Venezuela. She's been vocal about that former resident of Ross, CA, Sean Penn, and his support for dictator Hugo Chavez.

Well, the actress recently bumped into the moonbat Penn at LAX (Video via The Blaze).

“So I’m like, ‘You are in favor of Hugo Chavez and [Iranian President Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad.’ Because I also saw a picture of footage from TV where Chavez and Ahmadinejad are together and Sean Penn is next to them. And, you know, he‘s like ’I’ve never said that about Ahmadinejad. You’re a pig.’ And I go to him, ‘And you are a communist, Sean Penn!’”

The second time I called him a communist I said ‘You’re a communist a**hole,” Alonso elaborated. She claims that while she regrets using profanity she is not sorry for calling Penn a communist.

“I’m not apologizing for calling him a communist because that is what he is.”

Ann Coulter Continues Newt-Bashing On WMAL: He's The Sharron Angle / O'Donnell Of National GOP

Ann Coulter continued her stealth campaign to re-elect Obama today, appearing over the DC airwaves this morning on WMAL's Morning Majority to bash Newt Gingrich some more.
In an interview with the WMAL Morning Majority, Coulter compared Gingrich to two popular Tea Party luminaries who managed to excite their conservative bases and win GOP nominations for US Senate in Nevada and Delaware, only to see their momentum fade quickly at general election time.

"They ended up losing, and they should have been easy wins for Republicans. I see Newt Gingrich as the Sharron Angle or Christine O'Donnell of the national party," said Coulter, who maintained that Gingrich "does not have a prayer of a chance in a general election, and I think this is the most important election of our lifetimes."

Coulter told WMAL her pessimism is borne from the beginning of the Republican revolution in 1994, when the GOP took over the House of Representatives with Gingrich as the Speaker of the House. Coulter recalled that not long after, Gingrich suggested opening orphanages and creating janitorial jobs for poor children on welfare.

"It wasn't the way to put it, not right after Republicans take Congress," said Coulter. "It made us sound like some sort of Dickensian brutes who wanted to put children to work."

Well look who's calling the kettle black! Ann Coulter has made a career of saying really pointed, controversial statements, and yet she's saying she doesn't want Newt Gingrich to be the GOP nominee in 2012 because he said something controversial? Jeez Louise!

Oh, and let me educate Ms. Coulter, since you've proven once again that being a satirist doesn't make you a deep thinker. Sharon Angle's defeat can be attributed in great deal to the last minute "get out the vote" efforts by casino union bosses in Nevada. Let's not forget that Christine O'Donnell lost in large part because right after she won the primary, the army of establishment GOP long knives, led by Karl Rove, came out after her. Even polling after the 2010 general election showed the liberal GOP establishment candidate would have lost to Democrat Chris Coons, despite the projections of Tokyo Rove and other GOP country clubbers.

Now, two years later, the GOP establishment and many in the professional conservative punditry, want the party to commit electoral hari-kari by pushing a guy of questionable core values who couldn't even beat John McCain in 2008 as our nominee. Someone has been running for President for the last five years. Coulter, O'Donnell, Haley and now the 1996 loser Bob Dole are still pursuing this zany delusion that Flip Romney is the most electable candidate in the 2012 race. That's playing right into the hands of Obama and the slimy Axlerod, who can't wait to use stuff like this article on Romney's Bain Capital and the photo below to distract from Obama's disaster as President.

Never mind how Romneycare will cancel out any criticism of Obamacare, taking that issue off the table.

They told me Sarah Palin shouldn't run because she was too divisive, and boy they were right!

With Flip Romney, Compliments On Newt, Rick Perry Have An Expiration Date

It appears that with Flip Romney, there's always another side of the coin with not just his stands on issues, how he looks at and compliments those who become his opponents.

Prof. William Jacobson has this clip of how Romney called Newt Gingrich “brilliant, a wonderful ideas generator.”

Romney now calls Newt "zany" and an "unreliable conservative."

Now, one could write that off as a "that was then, this is now" scenario. The problem is, this has happened before with Mitt Romney.

In October, Romney released ads attacking Texas Governor Rick Perry's record of job creation in Texas, saying the Lone Star State had the highest unemployment in 20 years.

But listen to what Flip Romney said about Rick Perry in May 2011!

"Here I am in Texas I couldn't be here without complimenting your great governor. He is doing a heck of a job! (applause) The nation could learn a lot from a governor who says you know if you want to attract new jobs you've got to keep taxes down, you've got to keep bureaucracy down, you've got to get education to work for the kids, not for the teacher's union. ....The rest of the nation could learn a lot of lessons from Governor Rick Perry.
