Obama´s abusive slurs
get a pass while Boehner
faces media inquisition
over ´ass´ comment

The media double standard is flying high, as John Boehner is suffering criticism for language used by both President Obama and the Speaker of the House, while the Commander in chief was largely above reproach in the media for similar language. (snip) While Boehner is criticized for using a word deemed inappropriate for the Speaker of the House, Barack Obama used the exact same word regarding responsibility for the Gulf Oil spill. Barack Obama in response to the Gulf Oil Spill wants to know "whose ass to kick"

Two wrongs do not make a right - and hypocrisy is the tribute vice pays to virtue.

The Speaker of the House diminishes himself and the office when he uses crude, vulgar speech in public. It does not make him sound strong and determined. It makes him sound impotent and frustrated. I was very disappointed to hear this sort of talk from a Republican. It only lowers the already low bar further. There is no need for it. It was a mistake.

We have long come to expect such bad language and coarse manners from Democrats and their supporters. It should not be expected or accepted from Republicans.

This episode does not allay my doubts about Boehner in general. Foul language and cursing will not defeat Obama and the radical Lefists he represents.

Soory #3, use of the word "ass" is neither crude or vulgar. You want to hear crude and vulgar? You should have heard my wife when she saw the additional taxes taken out of my check after the first of the year...

I´m willing to give Boehner a pass on this.
The frustrations of trying to work with Obama and the ever moving goalpost and Harry Reid the mummy who can not do his job would frustrate the heck out of me.

And not one word from the mainstream press expressing outrage over a Dem rep´s recent invitation to a 17-yr old girl to see the snake in his pants. The media is so predictable they make me yawn just thinking about them.

The issue is not the word itself but context in which is was used, plus the contemptuous (impotent) imperative mode of speech. Only losers tell people they have no control over to get off their ass. My respect for Boehner, not terribly high to begin with, has fallen. I am sure he can live with that - but I hope he will refrain from such juvenile language in the future, now that he sees what anybody could have predicted, that the double-standard Left-wing media will pounce on it to use against him. One wonders what kind of politician would not have known this, nor that such language only makes him sound weak and ineffective.

It´s only a guess, of course, but I suspect that your wife probably does not go around in public telling people to get off their ass if she doesn´t like their behavior. Even most sailors do not swear like sailors in public. Career USMC NCOs do not talk that way in public, at least while in uniform. There is probably a USMCJ regulation prohibiting such language. It is vulgar, disrespectful and ignorant. No public official should talk that way in public, least of all a Republican. We already know Democrats have bad manners, low tastes, and double standards. Permitting Republicans to join them and then complaining about the widely known Left wing media bias is not the answer.

If I am mistaken and your wife does make a habit of telling strangers and people in public to get off their ass when she is displeased, you have my sympathies. It must be rough eating out, going to church, or attending most social functions with her. (It could be one reason the invitations have stopped coming in.)

If you live in flyover country, lay in a supply of popcorn and get ready to watch a continuing comedy drama being staged for your amusement by the progressives of San Francisco. The driving force is the classic dirty little secret of progressivism, greed and envy, and these deadly sins are amply on display in Baghdad-by-the-Bay these days.(snip)Yesterday, hundreds of SEIU members rallied in front of Twitter HQ to denounce the greed of the company that provides jobs and plenty of other tax revenue to assorted governments that employ SEIU members. John Coté reports for the SF Chronicle: City nurses [who

Last week we witnessed repeated efforts by Democrats to polarize the country along racial lines. Eric Holder, speaking at Al Sharpton´s conference, implied that he and the President are being treated harshly because they are black. (snip) The Republican base that Steve Israel says is animated by racism, nominated me -- an American of African descent and a great grandson of slaves -- for Lt. Governor of Virginia. They embraced me warmly, treated me respectfully and supported me enthusiastically. The liberal media on the other hand set out to destroy me.

Harry Reid’s jihad against the Koch Brothers has already yielded a hilarious video compilation of his 134 mentions of their name. But now with new information, his Koch addiction can become a potent tool in the hands of Republicans. Call it karma, if you like, but the former boxer now leading the Senate majority has left himself wide open. It turns out that Koch Industries employees and PACs have donated to quite a large number of Congressional Democrats.(snip) The ads practically write themselves: Mary Landrieu’s Majority Leader says the Koch Brothers are un-American. [video clip]. So why did Mary accept

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

The internal contradictions of the progressive alliance that dominates San Francisco have erupted into violence, and there is every sign it will continue. Conservatives have an opportunity if we are clever. (snip)I had not set foot on Hayes Street for at least a couple of decades when I went there last week. I was utterly shocked by the transformation, and more than that, by the hostility of some of the people I was with toward the newcomers. Twitter’s headquarters is nearby, as are other high tech firms, and around lunch time the sidewalks were crowded with brusque, expensively-dressed people hurrying

The Beat Goes On:
Opposing Obama Is Racist

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism. For the first time in U.S. history, are Americans required to submit to their president's agenda or suffer the mainstream media and Democratic party branding an R on

Justice Stevens thinks he knows
how to ´fix´ the Second Amendment
American Thinker, by Rick Moran    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 4/13/2014 9:13:10 AM     Post Reply
Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens penned a putrid op-ed in the Washington Post claiming he knew how to fix the Second Amendment to end controversy over its true meaning. The first 10 amendments to the Constitution placed limits on the powers of the new federal government. (Snip) As Second Amendment expert and activist Clayton Cramer says, Stevens is pushing a bunch of hornswaggle. I wish that I could say that Justice Stevens was engaged in an accurate although misleading statement. But it is not even that. It is both inaccurate and misleading – and not even in a very clever way.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
