Obama Didn't Make The Call? Gimme-A-Break!!!

The President and his advisors during the Bin Laden capture

As the world 'celebrates' the one year anniversary of the killing of Sheik Osama Bin Laden by U.S. forces, a new, and yes damning, memo has been released that shoots-down President Obama's account of the historic capture. 

According to a recent Time magazine article, the following memo––that was written by Leon Panetta, former head of the CIA––reports thusly:

Memo from CIA Chief Panetta

"The timing, operational decision making and control are in Admiral McRaven’s hands. The approval is provided on the risk profile presented to the President. Any additional risks are to be brought back to the President for his consideration. The direction is to go in and get bin Laden and if he is not there, to get out. Those instructions were conveyed to Admiral McRaven at approximately 10:45 am."

What??? I mean... with all due respect, but a lowly Admiral by the name of McRaven made the most important call of this century to take Bin Laden out?  Not the Commander-in-Chief?  Obama didn't make the call? Gimme A Break!!!  Is this truth?

If it is... well it paints him as not in control. How will other world leaders respect or fear him if (as this memo depicts) he is viewed as a wuss... as a back-bencher who let's others beneath his pay-grade take the risks and make the hard decisions?

We need the president's spokesman, Jay Carney... or better yet... we need to hear from President Obama himself to call a prime time press conference, or summons the media to the Rose Garden. He must speak to the American people and Clear. This. Up.!!! 

Because... if this memo is not challenged or adamantly refuted by the White House post haste, it will negate the President's lone foreign policy bragging right: that He gave the order to kill the #1 terrorist, responsible for the 911 tragedy.  

Gov. Mitt Romney's Super Pacs will eat Obama's lunch with this one.  

As the world awaits an answer....

Badda Bing... Badda Boom!! Romney Test-Drives Rubio

   Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL)                Governor Mitt Romney

Well... it looks as if the presumptive GOP Presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, recently did his first test-drive of a potential Vice Presidential running mate in Pennsylvania. And, from all indications, the feedback on the ground has been overall positive.

Introducir SeƱor Marco Rubio (R-FL).

Badda-bing! Badda Boom!! Bring Rubio out early... see how the American voters will receive yet another minority male in a major leadership position in this country. Put training wheels on Rubio for eight years as Veep, and then let him make history as the first Cuban-American president in 2020.  Smart move on Romney's part. 

Because realistically, adding a regular, standard White man to his ticket is a no-value-add, dead in the water, definite formula for an automatic Romney defeat this Fall.  

The odds are on Rubio, a charismatic Cuban-American, to draw enough Mexican-Cuban-Hispanic-Latino-Spanish-Americans to the Republican tent to offset the Black vote President Obama is banking on securing.  If I were a betting woman, I'd say Rubio––who has the right telegenic look, youthful energy, the proper ethnicity,  and enough excitement and fire-in-his-belly necessary–– just maybe able to pull this off.

Plus... it seems as if even the stars are lining up in Romney/Rubio's favor as well, especially with the current enmity between Blacks and Hispanics over the recent George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin brouhaha. Blacks... along with the main stream media's demonizing of a fellow Hispanic was NOT a winning strategy in a closely contested election year.

So, if Romney plays his cards right... his placement of Rubio on the ticket gives other 'White Hispanics' (as Zimmerman has been dubbed)–– many who are angry over the rush-to-judgment manner in which President Obama, Black leaders, and the Democratic party have handled this situation––an excuse to leave a party that has made too many undelivered promises to them, and vote for a kindred "White Hispanic": Rubio.

And, not to mention the big elephant in the room of course is location, location, location: FLORIDA.  As the newly elected Senator from a coveted Southern state, Rubio will make a very attractive addition to this year's ticket... if he can get past the natural born citizenship argument.  (Oops, President Obama has already made that a sticky issue and a moot argument for any questionable candidate... for years to come, huh?)

Indeed... if Rubio (with the help of Jeb Bush and his Spanish-wife) can deliver those 29 electoral votes from the State of Florida in November, Romney may be able to pull off the biggest upset since the hanging and dimpled chads election of 2000!

RomBama: Both Grew Up With Silver Spoons By My Standards

With America going to hell in a hand basket... what's with all the kerfuffle in the news of late regarding which candidate: Governor Mitt Romney or President Barack Obama grew up the most privileged... or had the longest or shortest silver spoon in their mouths?  

Talk about 'distraction'.  From my vantage point and by anybody's standards, they have both lived... and continue to live better than most Americans. 

Let's do the comparisons.  

Both are pretty boys who have gotten over in life as a result of their good looks.  (check)  [they kinda look alike if you ask me]

Neither one of them have ever lived one day in the 'hood or in poverty: Mitt reared in upper crust Bloomfield Hills, MI; Obama raised in exotic Hawaii.  (check)  [can we say bourgeois lifestyles all of their lives???]

Mitt and Obama were educated at Universities that most kids in America can't get into... can't afford... and that most parents only get to dream about for their kids. (check)  [and neither one of them had to rely on an athletic scholarship to go to those UniversitiesPul-eeze!] 

Both had doors opened to them because of their access to the power people and powerful networks in their respective circles. (check)  [don't even let me start naming names from both of their Who's-who buddy lists... geesh]

Romney and Barack both have (or present) the 'picture-perfect' all-American family model: married to powerful women, without divorces and with no baby-mama drama; beautiful and well-mannered, perfect-acting kids/grandkids; own big house(s); both wrote books and make lots and lots of money; and of course they own a dog! (check)  [c'mon... it don't get much better than that, huh?]

And finally, both of them are used to/accustomed to lackey's catering to them... and being large and in charge, as both have had the privilege (all of their lives) of being groomed for the successes that they now... and have always enjoyed. (check) (check) (check)

Nope. I don't see a nickles-worth of difference in either one of them.  Compared to most lives in regular America, they both have silver spoons hanging out of their lips!

So, Romney and Obama stop bamboozling us Americans with the: "I'm more like you than my opponent is" conversation... You can't fool the electorate with that one. For, everybody knows it's hyperbole

Now if you will... just get real 'fellas, and talk about some real issues that affect us peones out here... like: jobs, gas prices, taxes, Obama/RomneyCare, how to unite this country, etc.

Pack It In, Bruh! David Axelrod Puts Final Nail In Obama's Coffin

"Et tu, Brute?"  I'm sure President Barack Obama woke up this morning and uttered words similar to those made famous by Roman dictator Julius Caesar when his friend Marcus Brutus who, like David Axelrod, STABBED HIM IN THE BACK!

You can call this election of 2012 all but over as of today.... thanks to David Axelrod. Here is the clip from Fox News that is echoing around the world, that nailed Obama's coffin shut.! 

"The choice in this election is between an economy that produces a growing middle class, that gives people a chance to get ahead, gives their kids a chance to get ahead and an economy that continues down the road we're on," Axelrod said on "FOX News Sunday".

Can you imagine the Super Pacs and GOP political ad buyers just merely purchasing television and radio spots all over the nation... in addition to placing this 30 second clip on internet web streaming, from now through November... letting it play everyday/24/7?

BAM!!! This needs no further discussion!

There is no 'spinning' their way out of this one and there is nothing more to be added except to say: President Obama has been "Axelrod-dead"  BIG TIME!

Basketball And Politics: It's Only But A Game UPDATE: GINGRICH SAYS WILL NOT BE ON ROMNEY TEAM


DOVER, Del. – Newt Gingrich said on Thursday he would “probably not” accept a Cabinet position under a Mitt Romney administration but would be happy to advise the former Massachusetts governor on policy.
Asked the question in an interview with local radio station WILM at the Hollywood Diner, Gingrich, one of three contenders left in the race for the GOP presidential nomination, said he wouldn’t be interested in joining likely nominee Romney’s Cabinet, but added—“not because I am opposed to Mitt.”
“Look, if the choice does end up being Romney versus [President] Obama, I can be very, very enthusiastic for Romney; that is a huge choice,” the former House speaker said. “But I had a very good life doing a lot of fun things: I’m a grandfather, I’ve got two grandchildren I want to spend time with, Callista has got me into being a really bad golfer. I would like to move up from bad to mediocre.”
That doesn’t mean Gingrich wants to disappear completely. He said he would be “very happy to be an adviser. I did a lot of that in the Bush administration, both on health care and national security, and I put in thousands of hours just offering strategic advice and looking at specific programs.”    []



Once you have learned the correlation between basketball and politics you will have mastered one of life's complicated mysteries... and will be the better for it.  

Many a die-hard basketball fan believes in playing hard... and playing to win.  This same rule can also be applied to many staunch political supporters who pick their candidates early and are committed to fight to the end for a victory.

That explains why so many voters are disappointed and seething following this past weekend's semi-concession by Newt Gingrich.  

During a recent FoxNews interview, Speaker Newt Gingrich all-but conceded the GOP nomination to Governor Mitt Romney and agreed to forge an alliance with him... to let by-gones be by-gones, and call a truce from the war of words that has inundated the airwaves for the past several months.

Regarded as one of the star players in the GOP field, Gingrich––who is by far the most intellectually superior of all candidates running in this year's primary–– has said to his fans repeatedly that he was in the 'game' all the way through the Convention in Tampa. 

So... needless to say it caught many by surprise when he appeared to concede, and saying he would throw his support behind the front-runner if Romney secured the required delegates for the nomination?  What?!?!? 

As mean, negative and down-right nasty as Mitt has been toward him, and the other candidates this entire primary race... how could Gingrich support Romney should he weasel and cut-throat his way to the nomination?  

Some say Newt's comments reflect him as the patriot he is and has always been. While others say he's vying for 'cool points' that could possibly be leveraged into an appointment in the new administration... or a post in the future White House. 

Whatever!  But this one thing is crystal clear in light of all that has transpired of late: in politics... just like in the game of basketball, the opposing teams are rude to each other... they verbally taunt, trash-talk, throw elbows and knock each other around on the court for the duration of the game and in front of their committed fans/voters––who often take seriously these emotional shenanigans.  

Do the players not understand that it becomes personal to many of the fans/voters who sometime remain, vowing  NEVER to attend another basketball game and even pledging to remain on the sidelines or stay at home and not vote in the Fall because they feel betrayed?

Well...  here is some advice to the zealous fans and the young, newly active GOP stalwarts: know this about basketball and politics... both are just sports, purposely hyped-up by the opposing teams to keep the masses/fans involved. 

When it's all said and done, and at the end of regulation play... the players/the candidates are good pals.  They will   slap each other on the butts, say what a 'good game' each played, get their checks and go to the house. 

Therefore, it would behoove all of us grudge-holding fans/voters to understand the art and the fundamentals of how basketball and politics are played... for our own good and the good of the country. 

But always, always remember:  Basketball and politics: IT'S ONLY BUT A GAME... So let the games begin!

It's in!  And... the final verdict: the White House delivers what amounts to three pages of Skadamarack-- B.S., Cow dung... 

Did anyone really think President Obama's Department of Justice would submit anything that remotely resembled a mea culpa in the aftermath of the President's Tuesday comments regarding the SCOTUS?  I mean... really?

Did anyone expect that the widely anticipated three page, single-spaced DOJ homework assignment––that was  delivered at high noon today––would actually contain verbiage resembling the following:  

"President Obama is very sorry for crossing the line and overstepping his bounds in his flagrant attempt to bully the Supreme Court into not ruling against his signature legislation: Obamacare.  The President is fully aware that he does not... nor ever will have the power or authority to proclaim what legislation is or is not constitutional or unconstitutional. 

Furthermore, President Barack Obama fully acknowledges that the Supreme Court has the Ex.Clu.Sive power to reject/strike down/rip-into-itsy bitsy shreds any and all parts of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) a.k.a. Obamacare... and the President expects they will do precisely that–– more so now after he publicly challenged and tried to humiliate them––so that the American people can still have faith that the Supreme Court is the only "standing" and legitimate law-meting (sp) body of the land.  

And, P.S. The President will never pull that kind of stunt EVAH again... so help him God!"

If anybody was holding their breath awaiting comments to that affect from this White House...  Are you blue yet???

President Obama "Dares" SCOTUS To Mess With ObamaCare Law UPDATE: SMACK DOWN OF OBAMA BY JUDGE!!

Supreme Court of the United States. Back row (left to right): Sonia Sotomayor, Stephen G. Breyer, Samuel A. Alito, and Elena Kagan. Front row (left to right): Clarence Thomas, Antonin Scalia, Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Anthony Kennedy, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg


President Barack Obama recently issued an unmistakable, in-your-face,  "I-double-dog-dare-you" threat to members of the United States Supreme Court regarding his signature legislation: ObamaCare.  

In an unprecedented move––straight from the Godfather Don Corleone mafia-family playbook––Obama told these "unelected" Justices during a recent press avail and in front of the whole nation, mind you...  that they better not even think about overturning his Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act if they know what's good for them.

[…] for years what we’ve heard is the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint — that an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly-constituted and passed law. Well, this is a good example, and I’m pretty confident that this court will recognize that and not take that step.  [President Barack Obama]

Now that is high-noon, OK Corral, Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday trash talkin' if I ever heard any!  As a matter of record... those are definitely street fightin' words where I come from, Mr. President.  

So, here is question on the lips of most Americans living in the heartland of this great country: 

What now.... since the once-constitutional-adjunct-professor-turned-sitting-President has officially put all  those members of the SCOTUS on "front-street" and reduced them to mere court jester-status in front of out-of-town company, i.e.  Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Mexican President Felipe Calderon?

Well... will Judges Scalia, Roberts, Alito, et. al. have the guts to overturn this controversial law and show the citizens of America that they can't be bullied?  Or ... will they too become like the complicit, main-stream media lapdogs and back-down––allowing the 'final nail' to be driven into the coffin of a nation that was once-ruled by the people... of the people... and for the people?

Not to be trite in anyway... but "the jury is out" on this one boys and girls!  We will have to wait and see.
