Friday Bits and Pieces
We all know MO was given the “best dressed woman in the world” title by the Daily Sunday Fashion Rag…er, um, mag. But, in honor of that title they have issued a new ‘stamp’. How gauche is that? http://www.politico.com/blogs/click/2013/03/a-stamp-of-approval-for-michelle-obama-159959.html?hp=r11
Finally, MO is being recognized for what she truly feels she is, Queenie. Wonder how Queen Elizabeth is taking the news that she has been displaced by an erstwhile self proclaimed queen? As Beyonce’ sings in her new lyrical melody, “Bow down B******s”……..you know that’s what MO feels she deserves. You really can’t ‘make this stuff up’.
Watching Bob Beckel on “The Five” yesterday was absolutely a hoot. As Andrea said “Whoa…didn’t see that coming”. Beckel was so upset at CBS “The Amazing Race” he was spluttering and sounding off about the ‘optics’. Funny thing, I agreed with him completely. It was beyond tasteless to use a downed B-52 as backdrop prop and listen to a ‘boy band’ extoll the virtues of a Communist regime. 57,000 Americans gave their lives in Viet Nam, scores more were left with debilitating injuries. CBS deserved all the scorn and disdain Beckel came up with to describe them. Kudos to him!
Arlene from Israel has her own take on BO’s most excellent adventure to Israel.
Let me quote what Ruby Rivlin, former speaker of the Knesset, said about the president’s decision — which he called “worrying” — to speak at the Convention Center rather than the Knesset:
“Three American presidents [Carter, Clinton and Bush] have spoken on the Knesset stage, as well [Egyptian President Anwar] Sadat and leaders from Europe. President Obama should speak to the people of Israel through its elected representatives.”……….snip
…President Obama decided not to visit the Knesset, a decision which is in bad taste….The Knesset is a symbol of Israeli sovereignty, and with all due respect to the president, it cannot be ignored.”
We all know the ‘bad taste’ and ignorance when BO or MO are traveling to foreign countries to represent us. Arlene from Israel is just getting a taste of it now. For some strange reason she thinks BO was being “manipulative” when insisting to speak to only young Israelite university students. We already know that ploy and how well it worked in the last election. It’s one of his trade mark political ploys, to “charm” and make promises to the idealistic youth.
“Today, as we face the twilight of Israel’s founding generation, you – the young people of Israel – must now claim the future. It falls to you to write the next chapter in the story of this great nation.”
Manipulative is not even a strong enough word for how Obama conducted himself here. Take a lesson. Under no circumstances is this a man to be trusted.
Arlene from Israel, we know he can’t be trusted. Everything he says or does has an extremely short shelf life. He also bypasses our Congress to push his own special agenda.
More embarrassment from the West Bank. Arafat, the father of terrorism and suicide bombings was proudly on display as the ‘Leader of the Free World’ gave his speech to the Palestinians.
It is simply astonishing that the leader of the free world would agree to speak against a backdrop of a murderous terrorist with American and Israeli blood on his hands. What kind of message does this send to America’s enemies when the president of the United States gives a press conference standing in front of a banner celebrating one of the most brutal terrorists in history? It projects a clear signal that Washington is weak in the face of terrorism, and it is an insult to the memory of those who died at the hands of Arafat’s terror network.
BO and his staff of advisors, including the State Dept, are the most inept bunch of amateurs and foreign policy bunglers to ever have graced the White House. Libya was such a major fiasco that BO doesn’t have the courage to stand for anything, such a wimp on the world stage should not be representing us.
More on BO’s pick for Commerce Secretary……can you say “tax increment funding”? Michelle Malkin has the rest @ http://michellemalkin.com/
To protect her family’s multibillion-dollar fortune, Pritzker’s enterprises park their money in the very same kind of offshore trusts Obama attacked GOP rival Mitt Romney over. But Obama lapped up nearly $800 million in campaign and inaugural funding raised by Pritzker. A former Pritzker tax lawyer pioneered tax-avoidance strategies for the family, which allowed them to pay $9 million in taxes instead of $150 million in estate taxes after patriarch A.N. Pritzker died. As Forbes notes: “There are now 11 Pritzkers on the Forbes list of the 400 richest Americans.” Nice lawyering if you can get it.
Exempted from Obama’s poisonous class-warfare demagoguery, Pritzker also chaired Chicago’s failed Olympic Village Subcommittee while serving as president of Pritzker Realty Group, a top Illinois mega-developer that would have reaped untold millions in project work if then Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley and the White House had secured the 2016 Olympic bid.
Keeps those piles of money coming in for the DNCC. After all BO owes Pritzker big time as she raises funding for his ‘legacy library’ and his home in HA. Capitalism isn’t what’s wrong with America, cronyism is when used to enrich the pols and their politically connected friends.
