    First Lady on Fire! 

    Not the dress. Just a quote from the “reporter”. FLOTUS says it was a date night after all:

    Barack and Michelle Obama wrapped up two days of New York fundraising tonight with a gala eventat Gotham Hall, where the First Couple got a little flirty.

    “It is great to be in New York,” Michelle Obama said, according to White House pool reports. “And it is great to be here with my husband because the truth in, we rarely get to travel anymore. They separate us. It’s like our date night.”

    Some commenters are less than impressed. This about sums it up, I’d say:

    youarestupiderthaniam on Sep 21, 12:44 AM said:

    Well, well, did O’bummer and Muchelle give the truly rich a lecture on how they are going to be paying a whole lot more if he has his way while fleecing them of up to $38k – the median income of the average American worker?

    Of course, I am sure these big buck donors are aware of where O’bozo has spent our tax payer money.

    For example, Solyndra – .5 billion down the drain

    Fast and Furious – arms to drug dealers that then turn around and kill federal agents

    Not two wars, but at least four and depending on how you count them six wars.

    Billions to the PLO that has vowed to wipe Israel off the map and has vowed the same to the “great satan.”

    Zero employed in the month of August

    Inflation at 4% and 10 year treasury bill at less than 2%

    In the Congressional Black Caucus wants to dump them.

    On fire.

      I feel her pain. A few weeks ago, when the family and I were treated to a free-for-us vacation at a $50,000 a week private resort on Martha’s Vineyard, it was all we could do to use the same beach.

    Michelle’s not so private hell 

    Well, we may have wondered if Carla Bruni’s scoop were true but I think we can wonder no more.

    Michelle Obama may like the perks of the presidency but she’s taken advantage of them–with a vengeance.

    You’ll note she didn’t get any shopping in at the Vineyard, after the president publicly made a lame joke about it, prior to the trip.

    And who in the White House is leaking this stuff about her travel expenses? I suppose the campaign wants to rein in her reign.

    Cuz Barack sure has trouble doing that, he’s too busy demonizing the country.

    “So would I support Rick Perry for President? Hell, yes!” 

    So exclaims Kinky Friedman, who ran against him in 2006.

    As the last nail that hasn’t been hammered down in this country, I agree with Rick that there are already too damn many laws, taxes, regulations, panels, committees, and bureaucrats. While Obama is busy putting the hyphen between “anal” and “retentive” Rick will be rolling up his sleeves and getting to work.

    More (and a coffee alert if you’re holding one):

    These days, of course, I would support Charlie Sheen over Obama. Obama has done for the economy what pantyhose did for foreplay. Obama has been perpetually behind the curve. If the issue of the day is jobs and the economy, Rick Perry is certainly the nuts-and-bolts kind of guy you want in there. Even though my pal and fellow Texan Paul Begala has pointed out that no self-respecting Mexican would sneak across the border for one of Rick Perry’s low-level jobs, the stats don’t entirely lie. Compared with the rest of the country, Texas is kicking major ass in terms of jobs and the economy, and Rick should get credit for that, just as Obama should get credit for saying “No comment” to the young people of the Iranian revolution.

    More to the point, could Rick Perry fix the economy? Hell, yes! Texas is exhibit A; Rick’s fingerprints are all over it. He’s been governor since Christ was a cowboy. The Lone Star State is booming. The last time I checked, Texas is kicking in a hell of a lot of the U.S. GDP. Unemployment is lower than the vast majority of the other states. Hell, we could probably even find a job for Paul Begala.

    Heh. Read the rest.

    More threats from the feminist left 

    Joan Walsh: “A Lot Is Not Known” About Bachmann’s Foster Children It’s predictable, but still shocking and sick when you see it.

    So was Michelle Bachmann somehow a slut for caring for children not her own?

    Top comment:

    My God!  This filthy extreme left Obamamaniac is really going to go after the foster children of Rep Bachman? I had to listen to this clip 3x to believe she actually said that. Obama’s children are off limits, but the extreme left is already planning to go after Rep Bachman’s children, and openly saying it publicly? I have never seen or heard anything as filthy or sleazy, and I’ve heard and seen a lot. Ms Walsh has hit a new low for the extreme left. I don’t know how you get dirtier than this. Obama should publicly reprimand her and tell the extreme left that people’s children are off limits, that is unless this started out of the White House?

      Bachmann’s closing on Romney even in New Hampshire, so she’s getting the Palin treatment. Good luck with that. Obama poll numbers lately. And those other inconvenient numbers.

    Can we have school choice already? 

    My kids are out, thank God, but every time I see a story like this I get so steamed.

    Most parents are too cowed by the possibility there will be reprisals by teachers against their child so they stay silent–unless they can afford private school.

    I thought W’s No Child Left Behind might be the best we could do to break the unions at the national level, but states circumvented it.

    We are at the point now I think where the only thing is to follow the Walker lead, stop the collective bargaining, push for school choice, and vote REPUBLICAN whenever you can.

    We can’t afford our kids to be so ill-served as to think Big Gov is the way the truth and the life, especially when it won’t be there for them. They’ll be there for it.

    Michelle O meets with Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma, one of President Jacob Zuma’s three wives 

    …at his official residence. Zuma was scheduled to be out of the country. That’s South Africa. Three wives. According to Wiki he’s been married quite a lot, including a “fiancee” by another name he was supposedly to marry last December.

    Charges of 3 rapes

    A sex scandal:

    South Africa has an unemployment rate upwards of 30 percent. In some communities the percentage is even higher. The idea that a president would spend more time dealing with sex scandals instead of fixing the country’s economic woes does not sit well with many people, says Spio-Garbrah.

    “Zuma has always presented himself as the common man. The problem for many South Africans is ‘if half of us are unemployed and the rest are barely surviving, how come you can afford to have 19 children, three wives and one girlfriend?'” he says. “For someone who doesn’t have job, who can’t even afford to feed his family, for Zuma to be going around and fathering children left, right and center would irk such a person.”

    Former member of the communist party. Living large.

    Then there are the corruption charges, but that’s nothing out of the ordinary in most countries, not to mention Chicago.

    No wonder he’s out of the country, the State Dept. probably insisted on it.

    But why go there in the first place and give recognition in any way to this disgusting president? Before they had apartheid, now polygamy is honored in their leading family. (I guess cuz it’s “anti-colonial” it’s OK) The official line:

    “She’s coming on this trip to talk about women’s development and youth development, and South Africa’s a leader in that, not only on the continent but globally,” said Elizabeth Trudeau, spokesman for the US embassy in Pretoria.

    Quite the role model.

    Is Michelle Barack’s Secret Weapon? 

    You decide, I’m only partly joking, but already we are bracing for the full-blown campaign. She’s still more popular than he is so why wouldn’t they put her in play. And the press around here will cover for her.

    We know it’s going to be nasty because Barack has nothing good to run on. The generic GOP candidate narrowly edges the Barackstar this time round but will competence be enough to cut it?

    Will Michelle cultivate the Jackie O look again or will the gloves come off.

    Our no more thin mints culture war 

    This has come up on Potluck before. The battle intensifies, given the ObamaCare forced funding of abortion, and the more we know about Planned Parenthood. They are part of the PC in-crowd. Kathryn Jean Lopez, NRO, on Girl Scouts going rogue from their leftist-run organization:

    Sydney tells me: “Many Girl Scouts are good, wholesome girls. The problem lies within the national organization’s leadership and its lack of adherence to its promise of neutrality.” She adds that girls often need and “should get help, but Planned Parenthood and abortion — what GSUSA is directing them to — are not help. Abortion has serious risks for women, including breast cancer, infertility, post-traumatic stress disorder, and suicide. Does this sound like help?”

    “If we had a say,” Sydney continues, “we would make it so they were truly neutral about a girl’s health and sexuality, abortion and birth control, and political affiliations, as they promise to be. We would put the focus where it should be, on character-building and leadership activities.”

    Character building for girls. What a concept.

    Thankfully, there’s an alternative now. The American Heritage Girls. Faith Service Fun

    Steyn’s 2012 picks, et cetera 

    Cross-posted at the WP version of P&P

    I had a busy day yesterday and didn’t even notice that Blogger was down and my morning post had vanished. (Re-cap of that: Chinese commies bad, Obama bad, Mark Steyn great, cheating and plagiarism bad, etc. I guess you didn’t miss much.)

    A few items as I play catch-up:

    Mark Steyn talked with Hugh Hewitt last night, and I’m very pleased to hear that Mark admires Dick Van Dyke and his excellent performances in Bye Bye Birdie and Mary Poppins, two of my all-time favorite movies. How about some Ann-Margret fabulousness:

    Wrenching our attention back to politics, Steyn tells Hewitt he’s “happy for us to be the moat with alligators party.” Lauri B. Regan at American Thinker agrees:

    Well Mr. President, I am proud to say that I do want alligators in a moat that protects our country. And I hope to God that you have one or more decision-makers in your administration that understand that it will take a lot more than killing Osama bin Laden and occasional drone strikes in Afghanistan to protect the citizens who hired you for that job. For while you traverse the country spiking the football and fundraising for the 2012 election, there are way too many terrorists who want to see each and every U.S. citizen dead and who are not taking time out of their planning stages to play golf; party with hateful, racist rappers; and hobnob with the rich and famous at $35,000 a plate dinners.

    Yeah. I hear you.

    More Steyn: He assesses the 2012 GOP field with Sean Hannity — video here. Excerpts:

    Tim Pawlenty:

    I’ve got a soft spot for Tim Pawlenty. I think the last time I saw him was when he and I were on your show together a couple of weeks ago and I think this is a guy who is more likely to wind up with the nomination. He hasn’t got an albatross like Obamacare and he hasn’t got the personal baggage that Newt Gingrich has. He’s got a good record that is flawed. But everybody is flawed. But I think he’s closer to someone who is at ease with himself, is authentic and conservative enough. And, I think someone like Tim Pawlenty could be the last guy standing.

    Michele Bachmann:

    I do like Michele Bachmann. And I think her instincts are good. Whether you can go from a short congressional career to the presidency, I don’t know. But Michele Bachmann is a terrific campaigner and just adorable to watch in that sense.

    The field overall:

    I don’t — all I ask is I don’t want a candidate we have to drag across the finishing line. I want one we can get behind and cheer all the way.

    No, I’m happy to go with the Pawlenty-Bachmann ticket if it comes to that, Sean.

    Adorable! I love it. Read the rest. He has something to say about Gingrich, Trump, Palin, Huckabee, Paul, Daniels, and Romney.

    Michelle’s Glistening Biceps Score One for the Team 

    Action figure.

    When we got OBL I was inclined to be kind to the Prez, but no more. Too much inconsistency at home and abroad. The Muslim Brotherhood and his old Chicago neighborhood loom largeThreats continue and are dealt with despite Obama’s sometime presidency.

    All he knows how to do is campaign in the most shallow and cynical way. And he’s not alone.

    Major hypocrisy and brain crampery on the left.

    Oh, and Michelle is soooo cool.

    P.S. ABC. Barack Obama’s Grandmother Threatened By Al Qaeda:

    Al Shabaab, which has been involved in fierce fighting in Somalia for years against the Western-backed government, counts among its members Alabama-raised Omar Hammami, also known as Abu Mansur al-Amriki or The American. Hammami, who is known to produce pro-jihadist hip hop songs, was thought to have been killed in fighting earlier this year, but reappeared by releasing a new rap song in April.

    Perhaps the White House poetry showcase will inspire…a new jihadist.

    What Kills A Skunk, Part Two 

    We heard the president’s speech. One of the most dismaying things about it, that makes most people recoil–aside from the pure demagoguery on the debt and spending tsunami we face–was that he invited Paul Ryan to come hear it. Paul Ryan, the GOP Budget Committee Chairman, and author of a brave and substantive plan to tackle our fiscal nightmare and wrestle it to the ground.

    Why would President Obama do this? Is he clueless of civil behavior?
    I think this comment has hit on it, in part:
    Why on earth would The One invite him to attend a speech that was designed to demagogue Ryan for electoral purposes?


    Because he’s a petty, thin-skinned girlie man who thinks he’s tough. He was trying to intimidate Ryan into backing off. Epic FAIL.

    Was that some sort of “if I’m going to kneecap this guy, I ought to at least look him in the eye” concession on Obama’s part?

    It’s what kills a skunk:

    Part Two.
    More to come.

    Chicago Breaking News, with mitigating greenie and mass transit plugs for The One. Of course much of the country can’t get to work using mass transit and greenie cars are expensive, impractical in the cold and over distance, not to mention having to charge up with electricity probably powered by coal plants.

    • just a conservative girl 1:39 PM on 04/11/2011 Permalink | Reply

      I have never fully understood why we blame the President for gas prices. I didn’t blame Bush several years ago. We do need to do more of our drilling, but it seems that neither party is willing to do this.

    • backyardconservative 2:51 PM on 04/11/2011 Permalink | Reply

      Yeah, it’s Carter all over again.

      Well, yes, JACS, I understand–Bush wasn’t really aggressive on this because he was sensitive to being accused by the left of being an oil man with conflicts of interest, etc. very silly. But he did push for ANWR and some more drilling approval which is bearing fruit now. Obama gets blame because he is actively ANTI-drilling and especially his atrocious handling of the BP oil spill. BP execs were his buddies and they are a sloppy oil company–they contracted everything out. As I understand it the major oil companies are much more careful with life, fewer accidents, and with their engineering methods–they own the whole process and are responsible.

    Walker Calls Out The One in the WaPo 

    Doesn’t this hugely amuse you too?

    Our reform plan calls for a 5.8 percent pension contribution from government workers, including myself, and a 12.6 percent health insurance premium payment. Both are well below what middle-class, private-sector workers pay. Federal workers, however, pay an average of 28 percent of health insurance costs.

    It’s enough to make you wonder why there are no protesters circling the White House.

    Meanwhile, back in Obama’s home stomping grounds of Cook County, IL, there are actual calls for the public unions to back off.

    Other states are exercising long latent citizen muscle to confront the public union excess driving us to the poorhouse.

    Come on America, let’s move! Our way:)

    Politico‘s Andy Barr tries to stir up some drama on the right, accusing Rick Santorum of attacking Sarah Palin in the interview below. Santorum responded with an unambiguous, and accurate,  “This article is garbage.”  But Barr stands by his distorted reading, hoping, I guess, that no one will actually watch the video:

    The “Perfect” GOP Presidential Candidate for 2012 

    I recently told one of my fabulous co-Potluck bloggers that I wasn’t looking for the “perfect” 2012 GOP presidential candidate, but I thought it would be fun to imagine what such a creature would like.  Here’s what I came up with (while responding to a post over at Big Government):

    We need someone with the mind and manner of Paul Ryan, the fierce patriotism and pride in American exceptionalism of Colonel West (our military certainly deserves a CIC they can be proud of), the principled and no-nonsense leadership of Governor Christie, and the foreign policy knowledge, skills, and experience of Condi Rice.

    No problem, right?

      I’ve got West fever, as you know, he is THE ONE for me for POTUS. I have a feeling that people are going to find this aspect of me quite annoying in the next two years. LOL
      Allen West has a charming manner, he is an excellent speaker, he is no-nonsense, fearless and also a supporter of small government in addition to the obvious things that make him awesome, like the fact that he has a clear eyed understanding of the islamist threat and the importance of presenting a STRONG America on the world stage (unlike the weak and castrated America that Obama favors). He is a combat veteran who is not afraid to lead by example, you won’t see President West frolicking on our dime while the rest of us are suffering and struggling, unlike Barry. Also,I have a feeling that, much like Chris Christie, Allen West would not tolerate union bullying, he would not be in their pocket the way Barry is.
      I believe he’d decimate Obama in debates and as a bonus, we’d neuter the race-baiting left who says it’s RAAAAACIST to not support Obama.
      Heh.
      Allen West has everything I want in a president, and everything that the leftists and islamic supremacists would fear. He is the strongest man I have seen in American politics since Ronald Reagan.

      • fuzislippers 10:44 AM on 01/08/2011 Permalink | Reply

        I like West a lot, too. He’s still getting used to reporters and the way the left spins, but he’s got a year or so to work that out. I wouldn’t mind seeing him run; after all, he can always appoint Paul Ryan to something economic and beg Condi to come back as Secretary of State (she might do it, right?). Then Christie can finish mopping up that horrible mess in NJ and prepare to run in 2020 (after President West’s second term, of course). :)

        Zilla:
        The country already took a chance on someone with a slim resume. Why would they do it again? While I agree that the military gives many experiences, the reality remains that the general public will not see it that way. They will see a man who has held office for a brief period of time, with little less to back it up. He isn’t ready. Neither is Rubio. They both need more seasoning.

        Also, I would like to see West take some hard votes first. I don’t think he will go back on his words, but I don’t think the idea of trust but verify is bad thing here.

        • zillaoftheresistance 5:43 PM on 01/08/2011 Permalink | Reply

          No, the public elected a guy with NO resume, no past, no school records and no birth certificate. Congressman West is easily vetted and already well documented.
          People think Sarah Palin is a good choice (I don’t) but she only served half her term as governor.
          Honestly, I’ve had all I can stand from career politicians and ivy league lawyers and MUCH prefer REAL WORLD experience.

    • Jill 10:54 AM on 01/08/2011 Permalink | Reply

      I would add two more requirements:

      • a genuine commitment to the sanctity of life
      • executive experience — even beyond Obama’s running his big ’08 campaign!
      • zillaoftheresistance 11:47 AM on 01/08/2011 Permalink | Reply

        Would West’s command experience in the military count as “executive”? If not, maybe he can get a good VP to fit the bill. :)

        • Jill 12:00 PM on 01/08/2011 Permalink | Reply

          Yes, for sure.

          I love Mike Pence but I think he’s missing the exec. exp. But he’s certainly pro-life. Same for Marco Rubio.

          Jim DeMint, so loathed by the left for his social conservatism, has both. So does John Boehner.

    • Carol 11:29 AM on 01/08/2011 Permalink | Reply

      Ryan, West and Rice-oh, my! That would be a team, wouldn’t it! I see a lot of potential on the Republican side. I would echo Jill’s comment that we need someone who will stand up for the sanctity of life. I would like to see more executive experience but I am willing to look beyond just the various governors. Obama’s problem isn’t just that he’s never done much of anything but he has also surrounded himself with people who are more “teachers rather than doers”.

      I would add Marco Rubio to the above list. He wears his love and pride for country right on his sleeve where all can see. I could easily vote for a Ryan/West or Ryan/Rubio ticket.

    Daniels Keeps the Door Open for 2012 

    The Republican governor of Indiana took a break from shoveling snow to talk with WLS Don and Roma this morning (Audio). He blasted the $1.2 TRILLION omnibus spending bill Dems want to cram through, and while noting earmarks are only a small portion of the federal budget, pointed out he had objected to them early on when he had served as W’s budget director nearly 10 years ago. They were just picking up steam then and we’ve seen the abuse, attaching them to PIGS of bills as sweeteners to push bad legislation through.

    Daniels went on to say he thinks many people may not realize how close this country is to Niagara with all the spending and debt we’re piling on. Asked about the TEA party, he was positive–a grassroots group that raises a little hell on behalf of freedom and the tax payers is all to the good.

    Indiana has seen new private sector job growth during this recession–Governor Daniels spoke of creating a great business climate with low taxes and trimming job-killing regulation.

    Asked about 2012–the answer is if people are still interested check back in 4 months or so.

      I think he would make a very effective president, what I am not sure about is what type of candidate he will make. He comes across as a little milquetoast.
