The Mortgage Crisis

Ann Coulter's take...

Barack's "Experience"

You couldn't be a new lawyer with 143 days of experience and become a partner in my law firm.

You couldn't get a job at McDonalds and become district manager after 143 days of experience.

You couldn't become chief of surgery after 143 days of experience of being a surgeon.

You couldn't get a job as a teacher and be the superintendent after 143 days of experience.

You couldn't join the military and become a colonel after 143 days of experience.

You couldn't get a job as a reporter and become the nightly news anchor after 143 days of experience.

BUT.... From the time Barack Obama was sworn in as a United State Senator, to the time he announced he was forming a Presidental exploratory committee, he logged 143 days of "experience" in the Senate.That's how many days the Senate was actually in session and working. After 143 days of work "experience," Obama believed he was ready to be Commander In Chief, Leader of the Free World ....143 days.

We all have to start somewhere. The Senate is a good start, but after 143 days, that's all it is - a start. AND, strangely, a large sector of the American public is okay with this and campaigning for him.

We wouldn't accept this in our own line of work, yet some are okay with this for the President of the United States of America?

Come on folks, we are not voting for the next American Idol !!

More Sarah Humor

This is funny...

Rush on Sarah Palin

RUSH: By the way, do you know why Bill Clinton said that we shouldn't underestimate Palin, is out there complimenting her? He wants a date. He wants a date. He's setting the stage for a date. Sarah Palin yesterday, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, pouncing on Biden's comment that it's patriotic to pay more taxes.

PALIN: Our opponents, they have some strange ideas about raising taxes. To them, raising taxes, and Joe Biden said it again today, raising taxes is about patriotism. To the rest of America, that's not patriotism. Raising taxes is about killing jobs and hurting small businesses and making things worse. This isn't about anyone's patriotism. It's about Barack Obama's poor judgment.

RUSH: All right, hubba hubba hubba. She's always on message. You know what, brevity is the soul of wit. You know what she does? She just simplifies everything. She brings it down to the basic so everybody knows, understands what he's talking about. It's an amazing thing. Politicians want us to think that they have these highly complex jobs, require convoluted answers to straightforward questions.

And even when we're given these answers we are to unsophisticated and ignorant of their important jobs to understand exactly what all they have to do. This, of course, is why we couldn't have term limits. Sarah Palin's straightforward answers about her management style, about her view of why elected officials serve, who they serve, that's a threat. Her simplicity, her ability to make the complex understandable is what makes her a threat to the Washington establishment.

I mean, she sounds a little naive only because she's straightforward! She doesn't have all the gobbledygook political-speak that these other guys run around with, as I often note, brevity is the soul of wit. And it's also the essence of effective communication. She doesn't have a convoluted answer as to why she sought elected office.

Ask your average politician, "Why do you want to be president? Why did you want to represent your district?" Well, I've seen so much suffering and I wanted to give my time, my country has been so wonderful to me, and I wanted to pay something back, I wanted to give something back, I wanted to go up there and I wanted to make a difference because I care about the people and I care about the country," and on and on and on, flowery lingo.

She said, "Because the PTA was screwed up, my kids' schools was a mess and I needed to fix it." And then she kept climbing the ladder. Palin then went through -- this is Cedar Rapids yesterday -- went throughout list of Obama-Biden proposed tax increases.

Palin's Spunk

Climate change this week: Palin on warming

The Leftmedia and their accomplices in political circles... er, maybe that’s the other way around. We get confused. Regardless, liberals have been gleefully criticizing Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin for “changing” her stance on global warming to sync with her running mate, John McCain, in her interview with ABC’s Charlie Gibson. On the subject, Gibson asked, “Do you still believe that global warming is not man made?” Palin responded, “I believe that man’s activities certainly can be contributing to the issue of global warming, climate change,” but it could also be natural planetary “warming and cooling trends.”

The exchange quickly became more intense. Gibson replied, “Yes, but isn’t it critical as to whether or not it’s man-made because what you do about it depends on whether it’s man-made.” After he added, “Color me a cynic, but I hear a little bit of change in your policy there... It sounds to me like you’re adapting your position to Sen. McCain’s,” Palin shot back, “I think you are a cynic because show me where I have ever said that there’s absolute proof that nothing that man has ever conducted or engaged in has had any affect, or no affect, on climate change.”

Indeed, Palin’s position has not changed and it is essentially the position we in our humble shop have espoused for some time. The climate may be getting warmer and man may have something to do with it (though we doubt that part), but there is little that we consider conclusive proof of either assertion—assertions usually made by Leftists who are simply aiming for more government regulation.

The Right Way to Success

“Bloom where you’re planted. If you bloom where you are planted, beautiful, unexpected things can happen. This is the story of Gov. Sarah Palin. What makes her absolutely appealing to ordinary citizens across the country—both young and old—is that she didn’t go looking for greatness somewhere ‘out there.’ Instead, she sought to make a difference in the lives of the people along her path—and in so doing, greatness found her. May Sarah Palin’s story remind all of us that God honors those who love and serve others. May her success inspire us to look first in our own neighborhoods for opportunities to change the world.” —Rebecca Hagelin

Interesting Names

She is an independent ALASKAN woman with ALASKAN class. If you must know, I will do my best to explain the names. Track and Trig are family names from the Palin side of the family. Bristol is named for a famous fishing region of Alaska, Bristol Bay. Her father is a commercial fisherman. Willow is not named after the tree but for a tiny community a few miles from Wasilla. My favorite, Piper, is assumably named after the Piper Cub, the most popular aircraft in Alaska. So there. Classic Alaskan names.

Rush on Palin

“[The media] want this Hurricane to illustrate the incompetence of Republicans again; that’s going to backfire on them with Governor [Bobby] Jindal down there running things... If you put a conservative Republican in charge of a state rather than a couple liberal Democrats like Nagin and Blanco, you’re going to see the difference if this happens. But while Drive-Bys and the Democrats are keeping a sharp eye out on Hurricane Gustav, category three; Hurricane Sarah struck the Democrats and made landfall [Friday] as a category 10 and global warming had nothing to do with it!” —Rush Limbaugh
