Making Heads Explode

He acts like he is America. But America didn’t like Dick Cheney. - Maureen Dowd


“I didn’t change. The world changed”
- Henninger interview of Dick Cheney

Ready to promote the release of his new autobiography, former Vice President Darth Cheney is deeply unapologetic over his time spent in serving in the Bush White House and can still give a rat’s ass about popularity over making the hard, adult decisions and doing the right thing:

Say What? August 31, 2011 Edition [Reader Post]

Al Gore: “We need to have an American spring, you know, the Arab spring. The non-violent part of it isn’t finished yet, but we need to have an American spring. A kind of an American Tahrir Square. Non-violent change where people from the grassroots get involved again. Not the, you know, not in the Tea Party style.” Just not real grass roots; just not grass roots movements that disagree with him.

The Keystone XL Pipeline and Canadian Oil Sands or Politics Make Strange Bedfellows [Reader Post]

Despite environmentalist protests, President Obama is about ready to approve the “jobs creating” Keystone XL pipeline. TransCanada Corporation, the project owner, estimates that 20,000 jobs can be created from the pipeline itself over the two-year project development period.

When Obama Doesn’t Get His Way via Congress…He Does It Anyway

Not a whole lot to add to this Krauthammer interview in which he talks about the fact that when Obama is turned down via Congress he governs instead by fiat and issues regulations instead, bypassing all that silly checks and balances malarkey. Who needs that kind of stuff right?

Google’s Taxpayer Funded Propaganda [Reader Post]

With throngs of K-Street lobbyists, special interest groups and even local governments pushing for more spending, it is hard enough to limit the size and scope of government without taxpayer resources being used to push trillion dollar-spending schemes.

The Affirmative Action President [Reader Post]

Enough.

I have had enough. The knuckles are bared. Yesterday Politico ran an article

Is Rick Perry dumb?

We have witnessed the media assault Republican candidates viciously and repeatedly. Politico has declared war on Sarah Palin. Politico, the journolistas who would never question Barack Obama’s brain creds have no qualms about opening speculating about Rick Perry’s intelligence.

Weekly Open Thread – ‘Obama’s “Dukakis Tank” Moment’ Edition
