Well, wouldn’t you know it that Barack Obama’s transition team report on whether or not he or his transition team had any contact with Gov. Rod Blagojevich about Obama’s senate seat clears Obama and Rahm Emanuel of any untoward behavior.
Would an “investigation” by the Bush White House into whether anyone in his administration leaked Valerie Plame’s name have been taken seriously by the press or anyone else?
I’m sure the mainstream media will be all over this one.
The United Auto Workers Union owns a world-class country club with a PGA-caliber golf course, swimming pools and condos for its members (and, space permitting, the public). Yes, this is the same UAW that has helped break the backs of American automakers with inflated wage and benefits demands for its members and then, while stonewalling on givebacks, comes to the taxpayer for a bailout.
Of course, the media made sure that everyone knew how much those slimy, jet-setting Big 3 CEOs made when they came to Washington for a handout. And they made sure everyone knew the obscene salaries of other companies’ CEOs and slammed AIG for holding lavish parties after that company was bailed out.
So will there be outrage at the UAW for its shameless extravagance? That’s about as likely as the public getting the member discount at the resort as a reward for bailing out the union.
Barney Frank thinks BHO is too confident in his ability to unify.
“Oh, I believe that he overestimates his ability to get people to put aside fundamental differences,” Rep. Frank said, blasting Obama for inviting pro-heterosexuality pastor Rick Warren to speak at the coronation of Good King Barack.
For once, Frank is right about something. Clearly, Obama’s invitation to Warren has done nothing to get rabid anti-religion homosexual zealots to lay down their vitriol and rage, if even for one day while their savior is sworn in.
Obama’s selection of pastor Rick Warren to invocate on Inauguration Day is whipping the messiah’s gay faithful into a frenzy, but don’t be fooled into thinking it really means anything — and certainly not an olive branch to conservatives.
Asking Warren to pray at the ceremony is a gesture that will itself have no tangible policy result, so one must look for deeper meanings behind the militant gay lobby’s foaming at the mouth. After successfully portraying itself as marginalized by Obama’s move, the homosexual jihad will be expecting compensation from a president sympathetic to their crusade. The leftist media are fully on board in of support the gays and will no doubt make sure that on Inauguration Day, no one forgets the Warren affront. Homosexuals will then hound Obamessiah to enact a pro-gay policy of some sort — possibly endorsement of open military service.
Whether by design or fortuity, Obama’s invitation of Warren may ultimately result in a trophy for the homosexual lobby.
If terrorism won’t convince the leftist appeaser states of the world to stand up to radical Islam in the Arab world, maybe opposition to homosexuality will.
