Guess Who Obama’s First Official TV Interview As POTUS Will Be With?


ABC? Nope.

CBS? Sorry.

NBC? No… not even MS-National-Barack-Channel.

PBS? Wrong again.

CNN? Someone tell Larry King he’s not Obama’s first choice.

And the winner is…

Al-Arabiya.

Bump: Since this thread is generating a good discussion, I’m bumping it back to the front page.

Eric Holder Will Be Attorney General – Second Amendment Rights In The Crosshairs


The Obama administration looks to be even more of a threat to the second amendment with the confirmation of Eric Holder as U.S. Attorney General.

If we are to go by Mr. Holder’s past record and past actions, what does it tell you about his stance on the second amendment? What does it tell you about President Obama’s stance? If you want to look at where Obama has stood in regards to the second amendment, please refer to OnTheIssues.org and go to “Barack Obama on Gun Control”.

Oops! Another Obama Cabinet Nominee Has Tax Problems!


Gee, one wonders if Obama’s cabinet vetting team was looking for tax cheats:

During the vetting process to become HHS secretary, Daschle corrected the tax violation, voluntarily paying $101,943 in back taxes plus interest, working with his accountant to amend his tax returns for 2005 through 2007.

(Mr. Daschle reimbursed the IRS $31,462 in taxes and interest for tax year 2005; $35,546 for 2006; and $34,935, a Daschle spokesperson said, adding that Daschle had asked his accountant to look into the tax implications of the car and driver five months before Mr. Obama won the presidency.)

What is it with rich lefties not paying the taxes they want to impose on the rest of us?

Bye-Bye, Blago


Blago got a double whammy today.

First, the Illinois State Senate unanimously ousted him from the Governor’s Office.

Then, they pass–again unanimously–a law that forbids him from ever holding office in that state again.

Next up, the criminal trial. And we will soon see if Blago is gonna start talking to prosecutors, dropping names of those that he feels “betrayed” him by not coming to his rescue. Perhaps names like Rezko and Emanuel.

Should be interesting.

Talking to Iran: More of the Same, Masquerading as Change


More false “Change” from the Obama camp… this time it’s talking to Iran. As this page documents, there were plenty of talks with Iran during the Bush administration.

Sorry, Obamamaniacs (you know who you are)… Obama isn’t really Changing anything except the outer wrapping… the same old same old is inside.

Stimulus or Stimu-less?


Let us see what economists and financial analysts have to say about the Obama administration’s economic stimulus proposal(s): 1.) Krugman and Roberts 2.)Other Economists 3.)Critics – Who do you believe? Is it stimulus or stimu-less? What has the not-so-distant past shown about so-called economic stimulus? I personally doubt that a change in presidential administrations will do much to change the past or ride against history.

My Kind Of Bipartisanship


11 Democrats voted Nay on the so-called “stimulus” package.

Zero (that’s 0) Republicans voted Aye.

In other words, the Nay votes were more bipartisan than the Aye votes.

Guess Obama will have to find another way to blame the GOP when his pork bill fails to resurrect the economy.
