Obama Need For Teleprompters, Global Warming Lies, and Deficit Spending

Does anyone want to see what an "empty suit" looks like? If so, take a gander at the following website. It shows our President speaking to a group of 6th grade students. His suit is so empty that even in this venue, he must use teleprompters! And he is consistently described as an eloquent speaker!
Here is an example of how the White House is cutting expenses because we are in a recession. In addition to spending $447 for lunch while staying in a hotel, here is another way Michelle is dealing with unemployment: hiring more government workers....

Washington - A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday indicates that 7o% of Americans believe that the Democrats' loss of their 60 seat supermajority in the Senate is a positive move for the country.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Politics: During last year's presidential campaign, Democrats blasted "sweetheart deals" for companies like Halliburton and vowed to end no-bid contracts. Now the Democrats' political donors are reaping them. Monday, Fox News found that Checchi & Company Consulting was awarded a $24,673,427 no-bid contract for "rule of law stabilization services" inside Afghanistan. And by coincidence, its president, Vincent Checchi, donated $8,350 to Obama's campaign, according to
Are you still wondering if mankind is the cause of global warming? Are you questioning whether the "scientists" are giving us valid information regarding the warming? An Investors' Business Daily Editorial notes: With so much of the science behind climate change coming under attack, especially among scientists, it's been a harsh winter for the global warming crowd. In the last week, it was revealed that U.S. researchers working for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are excluding temperature data from cold regions for a database used by the U.N. in its global warming scare campaign.

The NASA agency uses data from "sites in relatively warmer places, including more southerly locations, or sites closer to airports, cities or the sea — which has a warming effect on winter weather."

In a paper published on the Science and Public Policy Institute Web site, D'Aleo and Smith say the "NOAA ... systematically eliminated 75% of the world's stations with a clear bias toward removing higher-latitude, high-altitude and rural locations, all of which had a tendency to be cooler.

Then, just last weekend, we find that same 2007 IPCC report included another phony claim: that "the rapidly rising costs" of natural disasters since the 1970s is linked to global warming.

British newspapers reported Sunday that that assertion was neither peer-reviewed nor published in a scientific paper when the IPCC report was issued. When the paper that the claim was based on was published in 2008, its authors said:

"We find insufficient evidence to claim a statistical relationship between global temperature increase and catastrophe losses."

Now the IPCC says it is "reassessing the evidence."


Jim Garaghty of National Review Online opines about the Ohio speechmaking of Obama: I thought he was defensive, prickly, almost indignant that he's found himself in the tough spot that he's in.

He began by talking about how much he didn't like being in Washington, and apparently said something about the job being stifling. Sir, you spent two years trying to get this job.

One of his rallying cries is, "This is not about me!" Yes, Mr. President, but it's about the decisions you make and the policies you're trying to enact. I realize he's using it to justify a new tax on banks, but I think "we want our money back" is a dangerous chant for a man who so steadily expands government spending. [I will add that if it isn't about "him", then maybe he should stop referring to himself over one hundred times in one speech, as has been his habit]


This from the Washington Examiner: Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke's confirmation vote by the Senate for a second four-year term has been delayed, pending receipt by the committee of documents concerning the Fed's role in the massive bailouts of the U.S. financial industry in 2008 during the economic meltdown. Three Republican senators - all members of the Senate Banking Committee - are pushing for release of all documents concerning the Fed's role in the bailouts. [Thank you, voters of Massachusetts, for giving the Republicans more courage!]


Commenting on Obama's proposed freeze on spending on a very small part of the budget, CBO Directory Douglas Elmendorf had this to say: ''U.S. fiscal policy is on an unsustainable path to an extent that cannot be solved by minor tinkering,''


From the NYT: Advocates of more aggressive steps to address the national debt failed Tuesday in their effort to create a bipartisan commission to press for tax increases and spending cuts, but President Obama now plans to establish a similar panel by executive order in his State of the Union address on Wednesday. The proposal for a commission died when its supporters could not muster enough votes in the Senate. [The panel Obama will now form will not be accountable to the Congress....]
