Woodward Isn’t Alone

"Bob Woodward isn’t the only liberal to receive threats from an increasingly hysterical White House recently. Some are even going public.
Democrat hack Lanny Davis, best known for defending Bill Clinton’s inexcusable behavior night after night during the Lewinsky debacle, evidently needs to be kept in line:
"A day after Woodward’s claim that a senior White House official had told him he would “regret” writing a column criticizing President Obama’s stance on the sequester, Lanny Davis, a longtime close advisor to President Bill Clinton, told WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall Thursday he had received similar threats for newspaper columns he had written about Obama in the Washington Times.
Davis told WMAL that his editor, John Solomon, “received a phone call from a senior Obama White House official who didn’t like some of my columns, even though I’m a supporter of Obama. I couldn’t imagine why this call was made.” Davis says the Obama aide told Solomon, “that if he continued to run my columns, he would lose, or his reporters would lose their White House credentials.”

White House Threatens Bob Woodward

Talk Straight

Legendary liberal reporter Bob Woodward (of Watergate fame) ruffled a few feathers at the White House this week as he continued to point out the fact that the sequester was President Obama’s own proposal that originated in the White House, even as Obama as spent the week blaming Republicans.
Today, the White House actually threatened Woodward for opposing the President.
from Business Insider :
Bob Woodward said this evening on CNN that a “very senior person” at the White House warned him in an email that he would “regret doing this,” the same day he has continued to slam President Barack Obama over the looming forced cuts known as the sequester.
CNN host Wolf Blitzer said that the network invited a White House official to debate Woodward on-air, but the White House declined.
“I think they’re confused,” Woodward said of the White House’s pushback on his reporting.
Early yesterday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Woodward ripped into Obama in what has become an ongoing feud between the veteran Washington Post journalist and the White House. Woodward said Obama was showing a “kind of madness I haven’t seen in a long time” for a decision not to deploy an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf because of budget concerns.
Read the Rest
Woodward is enough of a real reporter not to back down to White House Pressure. He faced Nixon’s White House machine and now he’s facing the same pressure from the Obama administration.
Woodward is actually sympathetic to Obama’s policies, but he’s not been afraid to point out that the White House has been lying about the sequester from the start.

Analyst Befuddled why her health insurance premium just went up.

Poor Richard's News

Liberal political analyst for ABC and CNN Donna Brazile tweeted with much frustration this morning that her health insurance premium went up....Naturally, it didn’t take conservatives long to explain it to her: 

I can’t help but find it hilarious that liberals got exactly what they asked for and are now mystified by the results.

"I’m the President of the United States. I’m not the Emperor."

Political Clown Parade

"Everyone knows how comedically droll Mark Steyn is. He’s one of my favorite writers on the Intertoobs. In his piece entitled, “Achieve Ye This Goal”, Steyn eviscerates the current occupant of the Oval Office.
It started off as a response to Peter Kirsanow’s two-paragraph post at National Review in which Kirsanow wrote:
“As if to dispel recent assertions that his ego has grown even larger since the November election, during yesterday’s Google fireside chat the president answered a question about his administration’s deportation of illegal immigrants as follows: ‘This is something I’ve struggled with throughout my presidency. I’m the president of the United States. I’m not the emperor of the United States.’”
“Jay Carney denies that at the time the president made that statement someone was standing just behind his left shoulder, holding a crown and whispering, ‘All glory is fleeting…’”
Is it just me or was that a Grade A Prime Zinger? Yes. It. Was.
Of course, when I heard that our bat-eared, abysmal, perfumed potentate had made that ridiculous statement I laughed my ass off and got to work creating a banner for this blog that was in keeping with the Black Narcissus’ impression of himself.
This guy just doesn’t grasp the roles and responsibilities of the office of the presidency......"

Happy Presidents Day, Mr. President

February 18th, 2013

Dear Mr. President,

On this Presidents Day, a day we give honor to the special men elected to lead our country down the path to greatness, I was thinking about a few things;of the state of the world around us and about you, Mr.Obama.

First, with the entire Middle East looking likely to explode into more chaos and possibly creating a vacuum to which radical Islam could very easily slip, dragging a quarter of the world back to the 12th century and the possibility of our oil supply being threatened, don't you think it might be about time we start sinking some drill holes in the ground there Big Guy? 

The clock is ticking. Or do you plan on the same stupid course of non-action dictated by a few big buck environmental special interest groups with virtually no real power save a battery of litigious wild haired lawyers and the large megaphone of their parrot propagandist in the media. 

It’s time to grow a pair and tell the windmill fanboys and the tree hugger crowd to stand down for awhile and work on getting their Green Technologies to a point of affordability to business and the public. In short, tell them to sit down and STFU till we get through the present problems and they get their act together. We'll get back to them. Putt a few golf balls around the Oval Office and think about it, Sir.

But my main concern, and the real reason for this letter, is the pictures I continue to see of you with your feet on the White House Furniture.

I know you have very little respect for the American people, and as has been made clear to us over the last four years, no respect for the constitution. And obviously you have forgotten that house you temporarily occupy and the furniture contained within belong to the American people; you hold no respect for our stuff either. Somewhere along the way, didn't someone explain the historic desk at which you now sit as you read this letter?  It's a valued gift of appreciation from a British Queen, not something to rest your skinny little ass on! 

That very desk has witnessed great speeches written on and given from it, national tragedy and personal triumph, the course of western history changed. Many tough  decisions made and sometimes painfully grieved over, the discussions of sending men into war and of  planning for peace. Beneath it, President's children played as their daddy worked. 

So, show some respect for America for a change, Mr. President, 

Have a Happy Presidents Day, Mr. President
Un-Sentimentally Yours,

Diogenes Sarcastica 

At  least we know one piece of furniture won't be abused!


I'm Sure This Comes as No Surprise

Leading Geneticist: Human Intelligence is Slowly Declining

Would you be surprised to hear that the human race is slowly becoming dumber, and dumber? Despite our advancements over the last tens or even hundreds of years, some ‘experts’ believe that humans are losing cognitive capabilities and becoming more emotionally unstable. One Stanford University researcher and geneticist, Dr. Gerald Crabtree, believes that our intellectual decline as a race has much to do with adverse genetic mutations. But there is more to it than that.
According to Crabtree, our cognitive and emotional capabilities are fueled and determined by the combined effort of thousands of genes. If a mutation occurred in any of of these genes, which is quite likely, then intelligence or emotional stability can be negatively impacted.
“I would wager that if an average citizen from Athens of 1000 BC were to appear suddenly among us, he or she would be among the brightest and most intellectually alive of our colleagues and companions, with a good memory, a broad range of ideas, and a clear-sighted view of important issues. Furthermore, I would guess that he or she would be among the most emotionally stable of our friends and colleagues,”
Darwin’s theory of ‘survival of the fittest’ is less applicable in today’s society, therefore those with better genes will not necessarily dominate in society as they would have in the past.......Read More

To anyone not blind or deaf,  and breathing normally for the last 10 years or so, this should come as no surprise..... 

Good Monday Morning
