Via The New York Post:
The physicians, all invited guests, were told to bring their white lab coats to make sure that TV cameras captured the image.
But some docs apparently forgot, failing to meet the White House dress code by showing up in business suits or dresses.
So the White House rustled up white coats for them and handed them to the suited physicians who had taken seats in the sun-splashed lawn area.
All this to provide a visual counter to complaints from other doctors that pending legislation is bad news for the medical profession.
Of course what they don’t tell you is that these 150 doctors are the only doctors they could find that would support this plan – it took them weeks – and probably million of our dollars in grants ;o)
Yes, I rooted for Chicago to lose the Olympic bid. I was rooting for the Chicago majority that didn’t want the Olympics in their town – rooting for the citizens that need money spent on their protection – not a photo op for Obama in 2016.
Does this mean I was rooting against America? Of course not.
It seems the Democrats don’t agree. Via Politico:
But the joyous reaction in some GOP quarters to the International Olympics Committee’s snub of Chicago — coupled with the party’s rapid-fire reaction to bad economic data – has some Democrats turning the tables and asking if Republicans are the ones cheering against America now.
Many Democrats saw the outbursts following the IOC decision – the merry Tweets, videos of cheering conservatives and chest-thumping by party leaders like Newt Gingrich — as part of larger pattern that includes the flirtation of right-wing Texans like Gov. Rick Perry with secession and the caustic tone of right-wing talk radio, embodied by Rush Limbaugh’s “I want him to fail” comment about Obama in January.
Wake up Democrats. It is NEVER un-American to back the will of the majority of American citizens. My questions:
- Why were you supporting the Olympics if Chicagoans didn’t want it?
- Why are you not supporting the will of the people?
- Were you supporting Chicago or Obama?
It seems to me that the Chicagoans that did not support the Olympics in their city should be thanking the Republicans – for supporting them.
Politico is reporting:
According to sources close to the administration, Gen McChrystal shocked and angered presidential advisers with the bluntness of a speech given in London last week.
The next day he was summoned to an awkward 25-minute face-to-face meeting on board Air Force One on the tarmac in Copenhagen, where the president had arrived to tout Chicago’s unsuccessful Olympic bid.
An adviser to the administration said: “People aren’t sure whether McChrystal is being naïve or an upstart. To my mind he doesn’t seem ready for this Washington hard-ball and is just speaking his mind too plainly.”
Speaking his mind too plainly…………….code for – how dare he tell the truth!
This administration really has no clue about military code or morals. When they put General McChrystal in charge of the troops in his mind they put the lives of those troops in his hands. No military commander worth his salt would sit by quietly – doing the political thing – while his soldiers die.
Rather than blame General McChrystal, maybe Obama should be asking where his administration broke down in communicating the needs of our troops. Why was this ignored until the media reported?
Thank you General McChrystal for standing up for our troops.

I had to look twice – but yes, this was ABC…………
“There is no problem that will not melt before the sunshine of his charm.”
Nail meet head.
You have to give Bay Buchanan credit for trying – but there’s just no discussing Obama with Joy or Garofalo – it’s racist – reality doesn’t matter.
As usual Joy Behar doesn’t bother reading the news before she tries to report it as she discuss the “Obama assassination poll”;
“We’ve never seen that for any other President.”
Yes, we have Joy. Via Washington Examiner:
It’s clear that the Secret Service’s job is to take threats to the president seriously but what should be the standards for Facebook?
Several groups on Facebook are dedicated to the demise of George W. Bush. Most of the dozen or so groups dedicated to killing him however, have only a few followers, but some of them have become quite popular.
For example there is a group named “We all Want To Kill George Bush” with 429 members, and LETS KILL BUSH WITH SHOES has 484 members.
The optimistic leader of the group “I bet that I can find 1000000 people who wanted to kill Bush” has fallen short with 518 members.
A quick search for any threatening groups towards Bill Clinton suggests that he got off the hook, but his wife Hillary has earned a few threatening fans such as the members of the group “Kill Hillary” and “If Hillary Clinton is Elected, I’m shooting her.”
Fortunately only 7 members joined the group “If 20 people join we’re going to pay the Russians to kill Hillary Clinton.”
Silly me – I forgot – we’re talking about CNN. Accuracy is not one of their strong points……………..

I’m not sure how they let this slip through the censorship – but it’s hilarious……………..Quite frankly this is the most accurate look at the Obama Presidency that’s been shown on the ‘mainstream media’. Sad state of affairs – Saturday Night Live – accurate – Mainstream News Media – not so much.
Seeing this made me wonder how Obama stacked up against President Bush and President Clintons records from January 20th to October 2nd of their first terms as it relates to legislation signed by each President.
Obama = 64 pieces of legislation signed into law*
Bush = 199 pieces of legislation signed into law
Clinton = 264 pieces of legislation signed into law
*of these 64 – 16 were legislation to designate names of federal buildings
President Obama – maybe you should consider lightening your travel and speaking tours and focus on running the country. It seems that you may not be able to multi-task.
This is actually a report card on our leadership and Congress – the President can’t sign legislation if the Congress cannot get it done – Congress cannot get it done without leadership.
I opened the Drudge Report this morning and just sat back……………………..Obama thinks this is a fairy tale – our soldiers think this is a war.
