Frank Luntz Vegas Focus Group – “Worst evah!”

You have to watch to believe my little hostage takers. The politically correct left stands up to defend Obama’s hostage taker comment and … well all heck breaks lose. It’s as entertaining as it is revealing. Apparently political correctness gets tossed right out the window when it comes to the One. “It was just a metaphor.” Heh. Read more

Game on. Obama pushes health care plan, tells audience to “Brush your teeth.”

Here we go again … but then did you expect anything else? Nanny and the Professor are determined to push their health care plan through, and guide every part of our lives. True!

President Obama, in Vegas today, to hand out a billion dollars plus to help Harry Reid get elected, spent most of his speech touting his health care plan.

At the end of the”Republicans would eat your children if you let them” speech they opened the floor to questions, and one of the very first came from a man who asked … as long as we are doing health care, and I’m not paying, can we have dental too? I’m not kidding. But Obama’s answer was priceless. Viewers note … the man who told the world you can’t go to Vegas, sure makes a big deal about going to Vegas right out of the gate.


Unfortunately the man let it slip at the end that he’s in the dental care field, so what this boils down to is another what’s in it for me. If you are wondering why no matter what bill the President offers, it will surely be more expansive and cost more than anything a Democrat will tell you, this guy is the poster child.

I never thought I would call Mary Katherine Ham a prophet, but well, that’s what makes her humor so … funny. It’s so true.


Guess who’s coming to Vegas?

Remember the President’s call for fiscal responsibility?  Remember how he said we couldn’t keep living the life of a high roller any more?  Nevermind

“At the height of Americans’ anger over corporate executives’ huge bonuses and travel on private planes, Mr. Obama made what seemed to be an innocuous statement during a town-hall meeting in Elkhart, Ind., where he had traveled to urge support for economic-stimulus legislation.

“You can’t get corporate jets. You can’t go take a trip to Las Vegas, or go down to the Super Bowl on the taxpayers’ dime,” Mr. Obama said. “There has got to be some accountability and some responsibility, and that’s something that I intend to impose as president of the United States.””

Skipping over the President’s power or right to impose choices on private citizens, I’d like a simple explanation that, how in light of the above, he can explain the following:

On Tuesday, the president heads to Las Vegas to attend a star-studded fundraiser for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. While some hope Mr. Obama will try to set things right – even apologize – top officials there aren’t holding their breath.

Gov. Jim Gibbons, a Republican, said he has been denied a meeting with Mr. Obama while he is in Las Vegas. The fundraiser, at the Caesars Palace Colosseum, is set to feature actress/singer Bette Midler and singer Sheryl Crow.

Once again, we have a bad case of “good for me, but not for thee” out of the young President.  Corporations going to Vegas for conventions *bad*.  Political fund-raisers to rack up beaucoup donations for embattled Senate Majority leaders — that’s a horse of a different color.
