Finally. Actually, I can not take sole credit for pointing out Boston mayor’s Tom Menino (D) hypocrisy as he targeted Chick-fil-A business owner Dan Cathy’s personal view on gay marriage, compared to his complete silence on radical Islam’s extreme view on homosexuality; death to them…
Have you ever wondered why, despite the claims of knowing what is best for our children and the millions of dollars thrown at the public education system, schools in cities and states exclusively controlled by Democrats aren’t the most wonderful and perfect schools in existence? Where is the liberal utopia that is promised every election cycle? Read more
This is not new, and it’s been happening since the White House announced Fox News would be banned from the press pool since they are not a real news outlet in Oct. 2009. Back then, the press pool stood up for Fox, but is the White House-approved media in Boston keeping their collective mouth’s shut concerning the Herald being shut-out yesterday?
Calibrated those words differently? Who the heck uses language like that when they are trying to clear up an issue? Oh, President Obama does.
Is he kidding? If I was Sgt. James Crowley, – the white policeman who arrested Gates – I may have been tempted to hang up on the president.
The president said he had telephoned the white policeman who arrested Gates, and he said the conversation confirmed his belief that the officer was a good man and an outstanding officer.
“This has been ratcheting up, and I [Obama] obviously helped to contribute ratcheting it up,” he said. “I want to make clear that in my choice of words, I think I unfortunately gave an impression that I was maligning the Cambridge police department and Sgt. Crowley specifically. And I could’ve calibrated those words differently.”
OK, that’s it. This is a perfect description of a distraction, and my guess is the Obama administration is quietly willing to let this news story simmer right through the Sunday morning talk shows while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) rams the health care legislation through the House of Representatives, and bypassing a House Committee with Democrats on the panel who are not bending over, grabbing ankles and taking it from the administration health care cronies as ordered from on-high.
Contact your elected officials right now. Keep them and their staffers from leaving the office early on a Friday afternoon and ask them to ensure this is not rushed through. Then politely remind them of the 10th Amendment and let them know if the states want universal health care coverage, we’ll do it on our own thank you very much.
President Obama – in my opinion – should have kept his mouth shut concerning the arrest of Professor Henry Gates Jr. up in Boston. By claiming the police acted stupidly (his word) he’s ticked off every police officer in the country. All of that said, I’ve uploaded a copy of the police report if you’re interested.
