Scarborough Rips Sens.
John McCain, Ted Cruz For
‘Embarrassing’ Handling Of
Hagel’s Confirmation Hearing

Mediaite, by Meenal Vamburkar

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/1/2013 10:02:25 AM

Chuck Hagel‘s confirmation hearing to become Secretary of Defense took place yesterday — and today the Morning Joe crew discussed Hagel’s less-than-stellar performance. As well as the tense exchanges that took place between Hagel and several Republicans, which Joe Scarborough deemed “embarrassing.” “It was very painful to watch,” Andrea Mitchell said, remarking on Sen. John McCain‘s “hostile” attitude and Hagel being more accustomed asking questions than answering them. “I’m sorry, out of that exchange, it was not Chuck Hagel who looked bad,” Scarborough responded. Yes, in many ways Hagel was inadequately prepared, but:

WHy does Scarborough continue to demonstrate his lack of intellect? Is he trying to become a replacement of Olbermann?

former Private Hagel would have been better served had he remembered how to say "Yes Sir" and "No Sir." Alas too long in Hundren Person House of Jokers can dim anybody´s inttelect, and Chuck never had any to spare.

When Nixon´s Supreme Court appointee G. Harrold Carswell went down in flames there was no call for the Senate to rubber stamp whomever the President wanted. Carswell was as unqualified as Hagel, but at least his testimony was literate. Hagel as Secretary of Defense would be a bigger disaster because there are not eight others who could over rule him.

But, of course, there is no problem with the personal attacks and insults the Democrats hurl at every Republican appointment hearing.

Always two standards. Just go have a look at the Robert Bork hearings or any other hearing when a Republican president is putting forth a nomination.

7M enrolled doesn´t guarantee
health law´s success
Associated Press, by Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar    Original Article

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal. "They have demonstrated the law can work, but we are a ways off from being able to judge its success," said Larry Levitt, an expert on health insurance markets

Democrats: The Real Party Of The Rich

Free Speech: Right after the Supreme Court´s decision to lift limits on campaign contributions, Democrats and their left-wing supporters assaulted the decision as a boon to Republicans, "the party of the rich." This of course is part of a far-wider narrative — slavishly repeated by largely unquestioning liberal media — that the GOP outspends Democrats on campaigns thanks to big-buck donors like the billionaire Koch brothers. But, as it turns out, that´s a lie — as big a lie, in fact, as "you can keep your insurance," "you can keep your doctor" and "ObamaCare will bend the cost curve down."

A package of tax breaks passed this week by the Senate Finance Committee includes one by New York Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer that will benefit taxpayers but also likely help the financially struggling bike-share program in Gotham City that is sponsored by Citibank. The plan passed Thursday is part of a larger bill that includes two-year tax extensions on more than 50 provisions worth $85.3 billion. The Schumer amendment would allow commuters who use Citi Bike in New York and other, similar bike-share programs to pay their memberships with pre-tax dollars, as much a $20 a month.

Friends, fans and veteran politicos congregated in College Station on Friday to kick off a celebration of George H.W. Bush´s presidency. The event, hosted at the George Bush Presidential Library Center, commemorated the 25th anniversary of his presidency, featured panels on key legislation and culminated with the unveiling of a statue of the 41st president. Neither Bush nor his wife spoke during the event but they did attend some of the panels, much to the delight of the crowd.

TOKYO — On his fourth trip to Asia as secretary of defense, Chuck Hagel is attempting to reassure allies in a region brimming with territorial disputes amid concerns about Russia’s takeover of Crimea. Spooked by the speed and ease with which Russia annexed the peninsula last month, close U.S. partners in the region are suddenly questioning the strength of security cooperation agreements with Washington.Addressing U.S. and Japanese troops at Yokota Air Base after landing here Saturday afternoon, Hagel said the United States remains committed to its “partnership, our friendship and our treaty obligations” with Tokyo. “We’re serious about that.” That’s a

President Obama on Saturday continued his election-year assault on the House GOP’s latest budget proposal, telling Americans the plan would “raise taxes on middle-class families with kids” and cut crucial programs while giving more handouts to the rich. In his weekly address, Mr. Obama made his case — without explicitly saying so — why voters should elect more Democrats in this November’s midterm elections and contrasted the GOP plan with his party’s priorities. “This week, the Republicans in Congress put forward a very different budget … it shrinks opportunity and makes it harder for Americans who work hard to get

A federal proposal requiring more efficiency from wood-burning stoves has ignited a debate between the Obama administration and lawmakers who oppose the new regulations, arguing the rules impose an unfair burden on people in remote areas. The Environmental Protection Agency proposed a rule changes in January that would dramatically tighten emissions requirements on new wood-powered heaters, though does not impact ones already in homes. The EPA estimates that as much as 13 percent of all soot pollution in the U.S. is a result of inefficient wood-fired stoves and boilers.

Top Obama aide Valerie Jarrett recently granted an interview to a celebrity-gossip website called Popsugar and revealed why she had come to Hollywood. “I´m meeting with writers of various TV shows and movies to try to get it into the scripts.” The “it” is Obamacare. Conservatives are no match for liberals in this arena. The White House people know the immense cultural power the Left has in the popular culture. Liberals rightly credit TV and movies and pop songs for America’s growing support for gay “marriage.” So why not use that power for Obamacare? Jarrett told the Popsugar crew that

In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing.
