Thanks for all of the prayers and wishes of good luck for my job search. The Crawfish will once again be employed next month. There is a downside to it, though. I’m gonna have to join a union. (insert retching sounds here)
The White House is touting their “Health Care Summit” later this week, but in the meantime they have put forth their own proposal and are saying that if the GOP objects to it, they will pass it through a 51-vote majority via “reconciliation” anyway. In other words, the summit is completely meaningless. They have absolutely no desire to consider any GOP proposal, and they really don’t give a damn about what the vast majority of the American people want (only 35% of voters want any health care reform passed this year). They know better, so sit down, shut up, and take it. Welcome to the Union of Soviet Socialist States of Amerika.
Minority Leader Boehner says that these actions will cause the summit to be nothing more than a “Democratic infomercial”.
One of the keys to lowering health care costs is tort reform. Too bad the trial lawyers, who own the Democratic Party, have informed Obama that there will be no tort reform allowed.
Is it therefore any surprise that President Obama’s approval index is now sitting at a NEGATIVE 19%, with an all-time record low “strongly approve” of 22%?
This is rich. The White House, the liberal media, and the Democrats keep saying that the Republicans have put forth no health care proposals of their own. Not only is that completely false, but the GOP health care proposals are even linked on the White House website!
When columnists in Than Franthithco are complaining about how Obama’s trying to run the nation, you know he’s in trouble. The message is that the United States isn’t Chicago.
The Affirmative Action Attorney General now admits that nine Justice Department appointees, not counting himself, worked for or represented Gitmo detainees. Remember that Holder was a partner in the law firm Covington and Burling, which represented the Gitmo detainees, when The Anointed One appointed him to his current job. Once again, the question must be asked…which side is the Obama Administration on?
Why are the Democrats soooooo anti-business and sooooooo anti-capitalism? Dan Calabrese of North Star National has figured out the answer and has a fine column about it.
Susan Combs, the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, has a site to track all “stimulus” money in the Great State of Texas. Does your state have one of these? I haven’t perused the reports, yet.
As if there aren’t enough reasons to want RINO Michael Steele fired from his job as RNC Chairman, check out this story.
Colin Powell has proven once again that he is not and has never been a Republican. He has absolutely no regrets about voting for Barack Obama and says. “I think it was the right choice when the nation voted for him. He has done some things that have helped the nation a great deal.” Powell also decried the partisanship in DC, and blamed it all on the GOP, despite the actual facts, such as the Dems crafting all of their legislation without accepting a single bit of input from the GOP. Why would anybody ever consider him to be a Republican?
Compare Powell’s liberalism and his openly voting for someone on the basis of skin color with Glenn Beck’s 58 minute address to the Conservative Political Action Conference. One of these two men actually believes in upholding the Constitution. The other one took an oath to do so, but obviously never meant a word of it.
Why did thirteen Americans die at Fort Hood on November 5th, when he had repeatedly exhibited extremist views and loyalty to Islam over the United States? All together now…DIVERSITY and POLITICAL CORRECTNESS! It is beyond time to end the insanity.
I know it’s gonna be hard for y’all to wrap your heads around this new bit of shocking news, but please give it a try. The Man-made Glo-Bull Warming “scientists” have had to withdraw their report that said the oceans would rise by a half meter or more in this century. It seems some of their findings were, shall we say, false.
This really has been a bad year for the Warmers and their Prophet Algoracle. Not only is his scam/religion falling apart, but now Senator Inhofe is asking for a full-blown Justice Department (I know, I know…Holder would blackwash it) investigation into it and is demanding that Fat Al be called before the Senate to testify about all of his lies.
His Eminence Sultan Bu’raq al Obama started a new federal agency to study Glo-Bull Warming and provide ideas to combat it. It’s too bad that the first appointee to run the thing has now been accused of suppressing the scientific data that proves man-made Glo-Bull Warming to by mythical. Their religion is collapsing rapidly.
PMSNBC’s pre-eminent moron Keith Olbermann is at it again, but the organizers of the Dallas Tea Party have given him a put-up or shut-up opportunity. Does he have the squirrel food to take them up on their offer, or is he a eunuch? The Crawfish is betting on the latter.
If y’all come across any weird/stoooopid/strange news stories that might be fodder for The Weekly Claw or The Weekend Claw, e-mail them to me at CrawfishsClaw@yahoo.com and I’ll consider ‘em. Yes, I will give you newshounds credit.
