Is she smarter than a fifth grader? I think not.

You may remember that in a hearing of the House Armed Services Committee in March, Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) expressed his fear that if the United States were to station an additional 5,000 Marines and their families on the island of Guam, the island might capsize.  If you didn't see that one, you can watch it here.

Now, we have this bit of brilliance from Milwaukee.  The Milwaukee County Board recently considered a measure to boycott Arizona because of Arizona's new immigration legislation.  During the boycott debate, 12th District Supervisor Peggy West, who also serves on the Executive Committee of the Milwaukee Democratic Party, expressed the opinion that she would look more favorably upon the Arizona law if Arizona were on the Mexican border, you know, like Texas.

According to the Milwaukee County website, West, who was elected in 2004 and re-elected in 2008, represents 50,000 people on Milwaukee's south side.  Is it any wonder we're in the mess we're in?

Steny Hoyer: Dems won't pass a budget, but may raise taxes.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said this week that, because of deficit concerns, House Democrats will not pass a budget this year. 

“It isn’t possible to debate and pass a realistic, long-term budget until we’ve considered the bipartisan commission’s deficit-reduction plan, which is expected in December.”

This announcement comes from the same man who, in 2006, when Republicans were working to pass a difficult budget, said this:

“House Republicans are now on the cusp of failing to meet the most basic responsibility of governing – enacting a budget.”

So Democrats will fail this year to “meet the most basic responsibility of governing – enacting a budget,” but don’t worry.  Hoyer has an idea for lowering the national debt.  What is his idea?  You guessed it: raise taxes.

On the same day that he announced that House Democrats will not approve a budget this year, Hoyer also said that the extension of the Bush middle class tax cuts due to expire at the end of the year may need to be only temporary.

"As the House and Senate debate what to do with the expiring Bush tax cuts in the coming weeks, we need to have a serious discussion about their implications for our fiscal outlook, including whether we can afford to permanently extend them before we have a real plan for long-term deficit reduction."

It's good to know that Democrats always have a plan.

Secretary of Labor: "Every worker in America has a right to be paid fairly, whether documented or not."

The Obama administration's Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis says that illegal immigrants have a right to be paid fairly.  Of course, she didn't use the word illegal, choosing instead to be politically correct, but the meaning is the same.

The Marxist-in-Chief and his little Marxist friends are doing everything they can to destroy our country as we know it.  I only hope we can vote them out of power before it's too late.

Is Obama Losing His Magic?

I never thought I'd hear this: MSNBC's Chris Matthews, the guy who once confessed to getting a thrill up his leg when he listened to Barack Obama speak, has now actually been critical of the President.

In commenting on Obama's Tuesday evening speech from the Oval Office, Matthews had this to say:

"Why does he continue to say that the Secretary of Energy has a Nobel Prize? I mean, it's almost gotten ludicrous...I'm not sure whether these degrees are going to help, or these awards from overseas. I think it's interesting we have a blue ribbon panel, now, that's going to look into what went wrong. Can't we move a little quicker than that, than to name a commission, uh, that's what they've done here, another commission and another guy mentioned, they mention for having a Nobel Prize...I don't sense executive command."
If Matthews is being critical of Barack Obama, The Great One must be losing his magic.

Tea Party and Establishment Republicans Must Come Together in November

The political Left has long attempted to dismiss the Tea Party movement as irrelevant or to denigrate it as consisting of nothing more than violent, racist, right wing extremists, so far outside the mainstream that the movement would have no real affect on the political landscape.

With several Tea Party backed candidates recently winning Republican primaries, no serious political analyst can any longer deny that the Tea Party movement is having, and most likely will continue to have, a significant effect on the political landscape. The only question is what, exactly, will the effect be?

There has been debate within the Tea Party movement concerning the direction the movement should take. Much of this debate has centered around the question of whether the Tea Party should run third party candidates or whether the movement should just focus on bringing the Republican party back to its conservative roots.

My contention has always been that if the Tea Party attempts to field third party candidates in the general election, that will do nothing more than split the Republican vote and virtually guarantee the election of Democrats. If the Tea Party wants to field candidates in Republican primaries, that’s fine. However, when the primary is over, supporters of the Tea Party candidates and supporters of the so-called Republican establishment candidates had better come together. If a Republican establishment candidate wins the primary, Tea Party supporters need to support that candidate in November. Likewise, if a Tea Party candidate is successful in the primary, establishment Republicans need to support the Tea Party candidate. If we don’t come together in November, we allow the Left to strengthen their control over the direction of our country.
