Tiring of the Blamer-in-Chief

The “most transparent Administration in history” strikes again:

(The Washington Times) – The Obama administration said Thursday it had rearrested and brought back four of the most dangerous immigrants it released from detention last month in the run-up to the Budget Sequestration.

Obama-Corrupt

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton testified to Congress that his agency released 10 “level one” offenders, and has gone out and apprehended four of them. He said the other six are nonviolent.

Great Moments in Failed Predictions

And you’ll notice NONE of these folks ever says “We were wrong”!? They just go on to their next, & equally wrong, prediction…

Watts Up With That?

UPDATE: New table added below.

While searching for something else, I came across this entertaining collection of grand predictive failures related to resources and climate change, along with some of the biggest predictive failures of Paul Ehrlich. I thought it worth sharing.

Exhaustion of Resources

“Indeed it is certain, it is clear to see, that the earth itself is currently more cultivated and developed than in earlier times. Now all places are accessible, all are documented, all are full of business.  The most charming farms obliterate empty places, ploughed fields vanquish forests, herds drive out wild beasts, sandy places are planted with crops, stones are fixed, swamps drained, and there are such great cities where formerly hardly a hut… everywhere there is a dwelling, everywhere a multitude, everywhere a government, everywhere there is life. The greatest evidence of the large number of people: we are burdensome to the world, the…

‘Credit’ for Deadbeat Nation

It’s no secret that I’m pretty critical of President Obama.

But in the spirit of being fair-minded, I sincerely try to give him kudos for anything he does which is positive. For instance, I certainly commend him for keeping ‘Gitmo‘ open (against his will, of course, but still...), and bombing the heck out of terrorists with our drones overseas, and ….hmmm, actually, that may be it.

Regardless, I still look every day to see if there is some new way, some how, where I can give Obama some credit, and yesterday I FOUND one!!!

Let me tell you about it…

Obama Deadbeat Nation

Like most of us, I was at work when the President spoke on Monday, so I didn’t get a chance to listen to his remarks or even read the transcript until late last night. I needn’t have bothered: I could have guessed at 85% of it in advance. It was deplorable in its entirety: a smug, supercilious man, repeatedly and brazenly lying to his audience (us) as he cast blame & aspersions onto everyone …but himself, of course.

Democrats’ Negotiating style: “Heads I WIN, Tails you LOSE”

I’ve linked to Guy Benson’s blog a number of times, and enjoy it when he fills in for Hugh Hewitt occasionally. Smart, quick, and rather self-deprecating, Benson covers the political scene in DC as well as anyone, and easily better than most.

This post came out yesterday at Townhall.com, where he serves as the political editor. 

If you don’t normally read his column, or do so only occasionally, I’d politely suggest you make it a habit. You’ll be far better informed as a result, I promise…

“Negotiating,” …Democrat-Style

Guy Benson   –by Guy Benson; Political Editor, Townhall.com

The White House has been hyping its #My2K Twitter hashtag in an attempt to galvanize supporters to contact their Congressional representatives to demand action to avert the fiscal cliff.  The administration estimates that unless Congress moves, the average family’s tax bill will jump by more than $2,000, starting on the first of January.

The implication, of course, is that Republicans are once again standing in the way of resolving this problem.  Show of hands — as the media breathlessly follows every minor twist and turn of these negotiations, how many of you have seen this fact reported?
