Bobby Jindal Mocks Obama's Security Strategy

Julian Assange and Wikileaks

Of course yesterday's news was dominated by this assclown Assange.

Here's an excellent post from my friends at Missourah.com: "Julian Assange 2, USA 0."

Then there's this today from HotAir: "Suddenly Obama Administration Looking into Criminal Charges for Wikileaks." Seriously, what's their damned hurry?

Then there's this from American Thinker: "Cablegate: Obama's Katrina Times Ten."

Here's something from NewsBusters: "Krauthammer Urges Prosecution of WikiLeaks’ Journalistic Collaborators."

Obama Economic Kabuki Theater

Jim Heft at Gateway Pundit has this today about Obama "saving" the economy money by freezing the salaries of government workers (salaries that are right now at an all-time high). So instead of a reduction in force of government workers, Odimbulb is going to enact a two-year pay freeze on salaries of people who already make twice as much as people doing similar jobs in the private sector. Sweet.

Rush Limbaugh today called the scheme "bogus." I guess that's because he can't say "bullshit" on the air.

"Don't Touch My Junk"

There's a meltdown happening with airport TSA security. Here's a YouTube video, found on Drudge, of the massive lines at O'Hare. Wait until Wednesday.

One passenger chose to strip rather than undergo a TSA "patdown." He was arrested.

Gloria Allred says she enjoyed having her private parts touched; Hillary Clinton, not so much.

Here's Bobby Jindal, asking a simple question: "Why is it that the Obama administration is more preoccupied with protecting the rights of terrorists, while subjecting law-abiding citizens to these intrusive body searches?" Why, indeed?

The TSA horror stories that are out there are legion. Here's one: "Please Remove Your Prosthetic Breast."

Charles Krauthammer has written one of the best pieces out there, as usual, about this issue: "Don't touch my junk," Washington Post.

Here's a YouTube video, "Heightened Airport Security"--h/t to one of my favorite followers.

Epic Failure at the Justice Department

"It's time for Eric Holder to go." Yesterday Ahmed Ghailani was acquitted in civilian court in the 1998 embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania on all but one of 281 counts: his conviction was on conspiracy to destroy U.S. buildings; he was acquitted of killing 224 people, including 12 Americans.

And what did the DOJ have to say about it? "We respect the jury's verdict and are pleased that Ahmed Ghailani now faces a minimum of 20 years in prison. . . ." Really? The DOJ is pleased? Even though this is a man who confessed to the murder of over 200 people--they're pleased. Well, I'll be go to hell, as a man I know used to say. Ed Morrisey has the story over at HotAir this morning.

Epic Failure in Asia

This is what happens when you go around the world trashing your own country for two years--people decide to agree with your assessment, and they don't respect you. Nice going, Champ.

The WSJ is calling Obama's performance at the G-20 meeting in Seoul an "embarrassment": "Has there ever been a major economic summit where a U.S. President and his Treasury Secretary were as thoroughly rebuffed as they were at this week's G-20 meeting in Seoul? We can't think of one. President Obama failed to achieve any of his main goals while getting pounded (or, in O's word--"shellacked") by other world leaders for failing U.S. policies and lagging growth."

Here's the headline from HotAir: "Left, Right agree: Obama's G-20 performance worst ever": "In 2008, we warned about the dangers of putting a man in the White House with no executive, military, diplomatic, or private-sector experience. It should shock no one to find that American leadership has utterly vanished on the international stage when we elect someone incapable of providing that leadership."

As HotAir points out, even the San Francisco Chronicle isn't happy with The Won: "Obama can't get G-20 nations to follow his lead": "Sheallacked at home, shellacked abroad. President Obama's Asia trip is extending a losing streak with the latest setback--a refusal by other major financial powers to follow his lead to revive the global economy." What a smart, smart thing on our part to elect someone to the Executive Office who has never led anything. What intellectually honest person can possibly be surprised by any of this?

This one is from the Heritage Foundation: "Obama Hits the Trifecta of Failure in Seoul": "Obama's decision to allow the talks to collapse--and make no mistake, the decision was made at the presidential level--was a colossal blunder. It reflects serious shortcomings in his strategic thinking since it will have dramatic repercussions for U.S. foreign policy."

One wag is calling Obama "America's first half-term president." It would be funny if it weren't such a disaster.

And then there's Michelle Obama's Mirror's Blog, who, thank God, is always good for a laugh: "Honey, I Shrunk the Presidency!" Thank you, MOMB, for keeping the laughs going in this most dreadful of times.

From a MOMB commenter: "Is BOzo playing some sort of Japanese game in that first picture--say, 'Capture the black tile square?'"

Obama's Failure: Vanity?

Jonathan V. Last at The Weekly Standard has written a must-read article: "American Narcissus: The vanity of Barack Obama." Why has Barack Obama failed so spectacularly? Is he too dogmatically liberal or too pragmatic? Is he a socialist, or an anticolonialist, or a philosopher-president? Or is it possible that Obama’s failures stem from something simpler: vanity. Politicians as a class are particularly susceptible to mirror-gazing. But Obama’s vanity is overwhelming. It defines him, his politics, and his presidency.

The article is priceless.

"Are we having fun yet?" Here's a photo I found today posted on my favorite blog: Michelle Obama's Mirror's Blog. Holy Cow, does Zero look like a little bag of crap here, or what? Jeeze, this full-time job thing is hard.

Report on the overseas trip for Big Zero from our friends at MOMB:

10 days, 4 countries, zero trade agreements, zero agreement on trade imbalance, zero commitment from China to re-value the yuan, zero support from the other G-20 leaders, zero nuclear agreements. . . .BIG ZERO! Way to go, Champ. Seems that the world doesn't love you so much anymore.

If there's anyone out there who is positive this clown is going to run for re-election in 2012, I would recommend that they take a close look at that picture. Good Lord, we know that people age faster in the Office of the President, but this guy is looking like he's not going to make it to tomorrow.

The O's Are a Pure Mess

What is wrong with this woman? Michelle Obama has 27 minions to cover her every move: makeup artists, dressers, pressers--you name it. And she goes out in public looking like this? Good Lord. What First Lady ever looked like such a mess--ever? Thanks for doing such a great job of representing your country overseas, Michelle.

Update. A great blog about FLOTUS "fashion" from  a self-proclaimed "fashionista who is sick of the sycophantic suck-up media and mindless MO-bots healping false praise on our flabulous FLOTUS for her fashion faux pas"--Worst.Dressed.FLOTUS. . .EVER.

There's an article at American Thinker by Geoffrey P. Hunt: "A Broken President." It's seriously worth the read. Hunt suggests that we are a nation without a president: when we consider the modern version of the president as the inspirational leader of a free people, as the advocate and defender of America's greatness around the globe, as the champion of the oppressed and dispossessed while exhorting the self-confidence of individual achievement, the presidency under Obama has shriveled up, been rendered virtually irrelevant.

And of course, where was the commander-in-chief today on Veterans' Day? He was AWOL, naturally.

You think '10 was tough? Check out '12

That title comes from an article at THE HILL, no less.

In two years, Democrats will have 21 seats up for grabs, compared to only 10 for Republicans. Also, the two "independents" who caucus with the Democrats will be up for reelection (Lieberman and avowed Socialist, Bernie Sanders from Vermont). Of course, says the article, it depends on the mood of the public.

Mood? I'll give them MOOD, where here in Missouri a House seat was stolen by Russ Carnahan (Dem--do I even have to say it) from challenger Ed Martin. Here's the freakin' MOOD of the public: "We're Still Advancing," written by Bill Hennessy at the St. Louis Tea Party Coalition. Go here to read about Russ Carnahan's "Mathematically Impossible Midnight Surge of Votes." The election between Carnahan and Martin is being contested. Stay tuned.

Oh, and here's a special little "Valentine" from Jim Hoft at gatewaypundit for Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) who is up for reelection in 2012.

Postings re: The Election around the blogosphere

My favorite so far comes from Michelle Malkin: "Take Your Olive Branch and Shove It, Democrats": "Here is an ironclad certainty: It's too little too late for the antagonist-in-chief to paper over two years of relentless Democratic incivility and hate toward his domestic 'enemies.'"

Here's one from Michelle Obama's Mirror's Blog: Post Election Blues (and Reds)--"we'll just have to get used to the Republican shift from the Party of 'No' to the party of 'Stop it!'"

From The Foundry, the blog at The Heritage Foundation: "Morning Bell: Get to Work." "The American people have a collective wisdom, and they expressed it yesterday. They took a stand and decided on a new direction because continuing down the path we're currently on would mean the end of the American Dream."

An interesting article from the NYT's opinion pages: Ross Douthat, "Was It Worth It?" "Was the 111th Congress's flurry of legislative activity worth the backlash it helped to create? Were the health care bill and the stimulus worth handing John Boehner the gavel in the House of Representatives? Did it make sense to push and push and then keep on pushing, even after the polls and town halls and special-election outcomes made it clear the voters were going to push back?" This guy ends the article by telling Republicans that they "need to keep a lid on their euphoria." Maybe he ought to see to his own house before he tells someone else what they "ought" to be doing. Just sayin.'

Here's a very nice exegesis of yesterday's Obama Presser from Ed Morrissey at HotAir. As he points out, the press actually played a little hardball with their questions yesterday, and no one asked what Obama found the most enchanting about the midterm elections. Heh.
House Wins . . . and so does the American public

Buh-bye, Nancy. Republicans picked up 66 seats in the House last night, a historic win.

And don't forget the governorships--a pickup of 9 last night for Republicans vs. one for the Dims. Fox interactive map here.

I'll let Allen West speak
for everyone who won last night

Representative Allen West, newly minted congressman from Florida. "A nation goes to war against an ideology. We are against something that is a totalitarian, theocratic, political ideology, and it is called Islam." This guy has no confusion about who the enemy is.

"The president said, not too long ago, that this was about punishing his enemies. He also talked about how this will be about going into hand-to-hand combat. Well I've gotta tell you something. If you want to pick a fight with a U.S. Army paratrooper, bring it on."

Voter Tuesday Images

Ed Morrissey over at HotAir: "Welcome to Accountability Day, where the American electorate passes judgment on their governing class."

We remember in November. Today it's our turn, Nancy.

In my very, very, very Leftist town (in Missouri, no less), where my Gadsden flag is the only one flying for miles around, there is NO WAITING this morning at my polling place. In 2008, the line at 7:00 a.m. went all the way back to the end of the church parking lot where the mood was like a tailgating party. Today? Not so much. Heh.

If you vote today, thank a Service Person that the polls are open for business in the U.S. of A.
