That's the hip way to say State of the Union.  president Zero gave a stemwinder of a report last night on his version of reality. There are numerous reports today that slice and dice the 90 minutes that many will never get back.  Me? I did the varnish on the Whaler.  (7 coats and it's looking sweeeet! Thanks for asking)

Here's my take aways....Zero is stumbling from his record of fail.  If he doesn't get it, he is just plain stupid.  If he does get it, he is just being petulant.  Attacking the Supremes as they sit in front of you is not a wise move.  The Supremes are a co-equal branch of government.  Maybe he forgot.  Remember Zero was, or more accurately, touts himself, as a Constitutional law professor.  Your educational dollars at work.  Here is the video of Justice Alito calling out Zero on his lie.

Notice how the only ones not standing are those that actually have to work for a living?  I'm just saying....

6th Graders 

president Zero used a teleprompter to speak to 6th graders....WTH?!!

Freeze This, Not That!

president Zero is flailing about trying to find an issue that will make him, well, relevant. He has latched on to an idea that was promoted by Big John McCain during the campaign.

Under mounting pressure to rein in mammoth budget deficits, President Obama will propose in his State of the Union address a three-year freeze on federal funding that is not related to national security, a concession to public concern about government spending that could dramatically curtail Obama's legislative ambitions. 

Of course Zero, Our Hero, was against any type of freeze during the campaign.  However, that will not stop him from applying one now because, obviously, nobody with Zero's expertise has tried it.  So of course it will work. Like all those other pograms he has launched that have ....worked.

Monday's Pun (s) !!!

If jokes could be owned like land, then no good pun would go undeeded.
A used car salesman started a chain and thus founded the Auto-man Empire.
I took the strange skeleton to be that of a feral onager, but it was only a wild ass guess.


On the week that was:
You know, this is an amazing week. Massachusetts goes Republican, health care dies, and the Supreme Court unshackles the First Amendment. It's the best week I have had since spring break in medical school — and I don't even remember it.

Amen, brother, amen.

The Scott Heard Round the World

52% to 47% 

Brown Wins!

What can Brown do for you?  Smile, he can make you smile.  It's late and the olde Rumbear is having too much fun.  Good on ya Senator Brown.  Stand tall and ride the wave, you have earned it.*

To paraphrase my olde pal Hunter Thompson...

By Gawd, He Stomped on the Terra.

* Mary Jo Kopechne remains unavailable for comment

Barney Gets It

Everybody's favorite summertime snack Barney Frank has weighed in on the Scott Brown election......

“I have two reactions to the election in Massachusetts. One, I am disappointed. Two, I feel strongly that the Democratic majority in Congress must respect the process and make no effort to bypass the electoral results. If Martha Coakley had won, I believe we could have worked out a reasonable compromise between the House and Senate health care bills. But since Scott Brown has won and the Republicans now have 41 votes in the Senate, that approach is no longer appropriate....

Ya think Barney?  Hopey/'s that working for ya?!!


Senator James Webb (D) Lacky, Virginia, found his tonight.  The long neutered Senator from Virginia found his gonads tonight laying idly amongst the ruins of the Democratic juggernaut that had been Hopey/Changey.  Standing up like a man and almost the Marine he once was Big Jim proudly proclaimed..

In many ways the campaign in Massachusetts became a referendum not only on health care reform but also on the openness and integrity of our government process. It is vital that we restore the respect of the American people in our system of government and in our leaders. To that end, I believe it would only be fair and prudent that we suspend further votes on health care legislation until Senator-elect Brown is seated.

Yes indeed, being one of the first to peek out from behind the skirts of those who took on the Obama machine and helped Scott Brown get elected, Jim Webb has found his voice.  You go girl.

Senator Franken Congratulates Martha Coakley....

on her decisive victory....

Not really. But wait for it.  Steyn knows it.

The Scott Heard Round the World   [Mark Steyn]

Well, as a wintry election day dawns in Massachusetts, I'll believe it when I see it. If all but one of those polls are right, Scott Brown now has a lead well beyond the margin of error. But, as that Boston Globe "Dead Heat!" headline suggests, it's not necessarily beyond the margin of Acorn, the margin of lawyer, and the margin of Franken-style recounts.

The raisin wined about how he couldn't achieve grapeness.

There is rarely a sale on beer because the demand is always high so there's no need to create a buzz.

My boyfriend and I started to date after he backed his car into mine. We met by accident.

....a picture says it all.  

Economy is tanking, war on terrorism is an abject failure, Haiti is in ruins while the airport struggles under US control, dogs & cats are sleeping together and where is president Zero?  In Taxachusetts...campaigning for Martha Coakley.

Zero, Our Hero


On so many levels, this is just disgusting. Cruise ships docking while the country is in ruins.  Let's be real, the country was in ruins before the quake, but, people are suffering, many near death or ..dead. is increased so the cruise ships folks can get their moneys' worth?

Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines faced a difficult decision over whether to dock as per itinerary at Labadee Beach, Haiti after last week's tragic quake. Photograph: Daniel Morel/AP

Sixty miles from Haiti's devastated earthquake zone, luxury liners dock at private beaches where passengers enjoy jet ski rides, parasailing and rum cocktails delivered to their hammocks.
The 4,370-berth Independence of the Seas, owned by Royal Caribbean International, disembarked at the heavily guarded resort of Labadee on the north coast on Friday; a second cruise ship, the 3,100-passenger Navigator of the Seas is due to dock.

This is not a difficult decision.  Let me show you.

Kiss my butt RCCL.   Strong letter to follow.

Air Combat...

Lex is on a roll.....

He is also a cheating b@stard in the air.

As am I, and as you would be, if you were a fighter pilot. For as everyone knows, in this gig, if you ain’t cheatin’, you ain’t tryin’. No points for second place. In fact, if there were a sliding scale that measured degrees of sportsmanship, you would find eagle scouts on one end, inveterate cheats in the middle, and fighter pilots on the other end. That’s just the way of it, or it least it was until HUD tapes were invented.

“The trouble with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money”

Well, Hugo Chavez has run out of money.  The solution?  Cut back?  No about double down.  Yes, devalue your countries currency by half and voila!!  You are twice as rich!

Yeah right......this is where we are heading when the USA runs out of what that one lady in Detroit called "Obama Money"

Double Standard!

I could wax philosophical about the hypocrisy of Democrats on the Harry Reid "Negro" comment.  Some have here, here, here, and here.

However, the context gets lost in the argument when the Democratic spin machine starts debating who said what, when, where, what was the tone, was he tired, too much coffee etc, etc, etc.  That was never allowed in the Trent Lott matter.  The debate consisted entirely of "He said it.  He must go"  Debate over.  Still confused?  Let's go to Roger, The Real King of France for clarity. HERE.

Bingo! There's yur double standard.

and he probably still should.... 

Coffee anyone?

[A]s Hillary bungled Caroline, Bill’s handling of Ted was even worse. The day after Iowa, he phoned Kennedy and pressed for an endorsement, making the case for his wife. But Bill then went on, belittling Obama in a manner that deeply offended Kennedy. Recounting the conversation later to a friend, Teddy fumed that Clinton had said, A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.

I have not been a fan of Jon Stewart.  However, he is breaking new ground here.  Why won't any Republican say it?

"Get your island fix on the Internet with KPOA!"


America's failed jet pilot/senator/ex-presidentialcandidate, Maverick John McCain is starting to stir down in Arizona.

Anticipating a Senate primary challenge from his right, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is getting an early start to his reelection campaign, launching a pair of radio ads across his state highlighting his conservative credentials.

McCain is trying to shore up support among conservative voters with the ad kickoff. In one of the spots, he personally attacks President Barack Obama for “leading an extreme left-wing crusade to bankrupt America.”

and who would that "challenge from the right be???  My olde pal JD, of course.

So the Maverick, sensing a challenge, decides it's time to join the rest of us in pointing out the foibles of president Zero.  Normally, I'd say the more the merrier. However when a calculating asshat like the Maverick comes on board, not so fast. Let me be clear..... Go away Maverick.  Your "talents" are no longer needed.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, thanks for all you have done, here's a plaque don't go away mad, just go away.

Senator J.D. Hayworth...kinda has a nice ring to it.

Associated Press
Washington -- The State Department says it has revoked the U.S. visa of the Nigerian man suspected of trying to blow up a Northwest Airlines flight over Detroit on Christmas Day. 

Nothing like a stiff Miranda warning and a visa revocation to send a message to those crafty terrorists.

That will show em ....

 I think it was Mark Steyn that said you have to marvel at the bonecrushing ineptitude of this bunch.  I can't wait to hear the response...."Bush did it too!"

Another Picture...

Tell what you see?  Ed Driscoll has some insight on those who love em and those that do not.  Bear in mind this is from the official White House site, as is the one below, so THEY think it makes president Zero look good.

Go here.

I beg to differ.  Here's a hint for me...

The Bond comparison is interesting; it dovetails somewhat into Karl Rove’s early public take on Obama, from mid-2008:
“Even if you never met him, you know this guy,” Rove said, per Christianne Klein. “He’s the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and a cigarette that stands against the wall and makes snide comments about everyone who passes by.”

You do know this guy.

Does anybody but the housekeeper work around here?  I mean no pens, papers, post it notes, mementos...WTH??

Rush is Okay.  I am Okay.

HONOLULU Conservative talk radio show host Rush Limbaugh said Friday tests showed nothing was wrong with his heart after he was hospitalized with chest pains.
Limbaugh, 58, was released from The Queen's Medical Center two days after he was rushed there during a vacation. Doctors said he did not have a heart attack or heart disease.
"The pain was real, and they don't know what caused it," Limbaugh said, adding his best guess was he had a spasm in an artery.

Sarah Palin, Man of the Year

While each of the finalists was deserving, there can be only one man of the year — Sarah Palin. In the pantheon of people who stood up this year for that which is right, no one else stood taller or looked better.
