Quote Them: Obama is short on cash, too

"(Michelle and I are) not that far removed from what most Americans are going through. It was just a few years ago that we had high credit card balances, we had two kids, thinking about college. We had our own retirement accounts, wondering if we were going to be able to get enough assets in there."

President Obama,
who could only spend $70,000 on date night last year instead of the $75,000 planned

PS Of course, that doesn't include the "private, mother-daughter trip" to Spain next week for Michelle and Sasha where 30 rooms have been reserved in a five-star hotel in Benhavis near Marbella for their getaway. Or the 10 vacation days for the entire family at an "upscale northeastern resort island of Martha's Vineyard."

The Obamas really do get it. Just last week, my mom wanted to come visit me but couldn't afford the $10 lunch eating out. So we had to cancel our private, mother-daughter trip to Qdoba.

Good to know we have a President who understands the financial plight he's putting us all in.

Conservative red meat Gov. Chris Christie

Every week, before burdened down and drooping with the verbose and non-directional speech of current politicians, we should get a New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie soundbite to remind us there is a way to be in government, to speak, and to actually say something.

Jake Tapper talks to him about tax cuts, teachers unions, immigration, stimulus, and even Jersey Shore. It's ten minutes of clear thinking. Call it your weekly political B-12 shot.

Howard Dean trips over his forked tongue

Liberal rules of engagement: When you don't have anything of substance to say, repeat these words in various sequences, "FoxNews", "racist", "fringe", "right-wing".

It seems to work. The left love it. Not that it makes sense or that facts appear to matter, but those words are like a lullaby. Howard Dean gave it a try and Chris Wallace handed the man's dragging chin back to him on a platter.

Do facts matter Mr. Dean?

The issue with Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod isn't that fact she made a racist statement before she made an unracist statement, or some such nonsense. The issue is that Obama forced her resignation. He made a move that didn't bode well for his minions and they need to blame it on someone.

Breitbart has said the significance about Sherrod's speech at the NAACP was the applause she received after her racist statements. A similar speech and move on the opposite side of the aisle, like at a Tea Party event, would have gone viral. Heck, the fact there are white people at a Tea Party automatically, in the minds of the liberal media, makes it racist.

Which, by the way, is actually racist.

Breitbart almost always focuses on media bias. That was his objective. But here is a video of the speech for you to decide for yourself.

Nevertheless, if you think, per chance, her statement was only racist for a moment before she wasn't racist again and thus isn't racist at all, let's hear from her husband, Charles Sherrod. Oh, what a civil rights leader and hero. He's not racist. No way.

Hmmm...Maybe the lesson to learn here is that this couple needs something else to talk about other than race.
