Code Pink Heckles Pelosi

And you all claimed the Tea Partiers were disruptive?

The woman screeching is saying, “We supported Obama, we supported you, now 21 states are begging for money to help us save the community.”

I guess some are waking up to the fact that all of the promises of something for nothing aren’t going to happen.

The Alien in the White House

From today’s Wall Street Journal, By DOROTHY RABINOWITZ;

“The deepening notes of disenchantment with Barack Obama now issuing from commentators across the political spectrum were predictable. So, too, were the charges from some of the president’s earliest enthusiasts about his failure to reflect a powerful sense of urgency about the oil spill.”

=======================

“A great part of America now understands that this president’s sense of identification lies elsewhere, and is in profound ways unlike theirs. He is hard put to sound convincingly like the leader of the nation, because he is, at heart and by instinct, the voice mainly of his ideological class. He is the alien in the White House, a matter having nothing to do with delusions about his birthplace cherished by the demented fringe.”

Sarah Palin: "Less Talkin,’ More Kickin’"

The former Governor of Alaska knows a thing or two about energy and calls Obama on his handling of the oil spill in the gulf (you know the one Chris Matthews called CHENEY’S fault?? Here)

50 days in, and we’ve just learned another shocking revelation concerning the Obama administration’s response to the Gulf oil spill. In an interview aired this morning, President Obama admitted that he hasn’t met with or spoken directly to BP’s CEO Tony Hayward. His reasoning: “Because my experience is, when you talk to a guy like a BP CEO, he’s gonna say all the right things to me. I’m not interested in words. I’m interested in actions.”

First, to the “informed and enlightened” mainstream media: in all the discussions you’ve had with the White House about the spill, did it not occur to you before today to ask how the CEO-to-CEO level discussions were progressing to remedy this tragedy? You never cease to amaze. (Kind of reminds us of the months on end when you never bothered to ask if the President was meeting with General McChrystal to talk about our strategy in Afghanistan.)

Lew,
Thank you again for posting this. Please believe me, I am not bragging, I want to encourage those who figured I end up in trouble for this tribute – our latest headline in Colonial Heights newspaper is, “Tribute Earns Souders a special place in CH hearts – Teacher of the Year”. Yes – the youtube video is now well over 1 million views, and I was just names our school district’s Teacher of the Year. This is GOOD NEWS for all those who are discouraged about public education! Amazing what a little sincere appreciation can do!”

A most deserving award I think.

Thank you, Michael, for such a touching tribute.

*The Red and Black has put out a missive to ‘friends’ to come out for a fund raiser. They told their followers proceeds would go to THIS group. Look at the part where they tell people to impersonate a police officer.
