Hannity’s Ridiculous Attempt To Credit Bush For Qaddafi’s Overthrow

It’s so frustrating to see how people over at Fox News and their pet candidates relay information to their gullible audiences…

News Hounds

Apparently desperate to make sure President Obama didn’t gain politically from the imminent fall of Qaddafi, Hannity came up with a ridiculous talking point: That in his Libya policy, Obama had adopted President Bush’s doctrine of preemption.

During a discussion last night with Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain (more about this segment in another post), Hannity brought up the subject of Libya at about 5:20.

“Does the president now agree with the preemption policy of George W. Bush or does he agree with Colin Powell, who said, ‘If you break it, you buy it?’ Does that now apply to Libya and President Obama in your view?” Hannity asked.

Say what?

What does Bush’s preemption policy have to do with Libya? Does Hannity think Libya was a threat? Was he likening NATO’s actions in Libya to the invasion of Iraq?

Cain didn’t offer any enlightenment on that score. He gave “hats off” to British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy but spent the rest of the Libya discussion attacking Obama.

Hannity seemed perfectly happy with that response.

Earthquake Does Less Damage to Washington than Eric Cantor (Humor)

The Borowitz Report

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) – Seismologists said today that a 5.8 magnitude earthquake centered in Virginia did less damage to Washington, D.C. than House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, also centered in Virginia.

“The earthquake and Eric Cantor originate from almost the identical point,” said Dr. Davis Logsdon of the University of Minnesota’s Seismology Institute.  “But while the earthquake caused some minor shaking, there’s only one word for Eric Cantor’s impact: devastation.”

As residents of Washington picked through the rubble left behind by Rep. Cantor, some questioned whether it made sense to rebuild.

“What’s the point?  Congress will be back from recess in a few days and then he’ll just knock everything down again,” one resident said.

While rumbling from the quake extended to states as far-flung as New York and Ohio, Rep. Cantor’s path of destruction has wreaked damage on almost every state in the country, Dr. Logsdon said.

“The only state he hasn’t destroyed is Wisconsin,” he said. “That’s because there was nothing left of it after it was hit by Scott Walker.”

Tea Party Patriots Responds To Maxine Waters ‘Go To Hell’ Comment

A couple of days ago, Rep. Maxine Waters told a crowd of supporters that “…the tea party can go straight to hell”.  

HuffPo puts it all into context and reports the Tea Party Patriots response…

Huffington Post

The leaders of the Tea Party Patriots group are out with a response to contentious remarks made by Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) over the weekend regarding the coalition of conservative activists.

“We’ve had Democrats calling American citizens ‘terrorists’ and ‘hostage takers,’ and now an elected Democratic representative says that we can ‘go straight to hell,’” Mark Meckler and Jenny Beth Martin said in a statement. “The president and all leaders of the Democratic Party, who have called for civility in the past, are neglecting to censure their own. Is civility only required from their opponents? Perhaps it’s time for a new-NEW era of civility.”

They added, “The president’s silence on these latest violations of civility has been deafening, but not surprising.”

Waters made the comments in question while speaking at a forum in her home state on Saturday.

With California’s jobless rate now 12 percent, the second-highest rate of unemployment in the nation after Nevada, talk about jobs, the economy and the partisan squabbling in Congress dominated the “Kitchen Table Summit.””I’m not afraid of anybody,” Waters told the crowd. “This is a tough game. You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. And as far as I’m concerned, the Tea Party can go straight to hell.”

Last week, Waters made headlines with critical remarks she made about the route taken by President Barack Obama on his Midwest bus tour.

“We don’t know why on this trip that he’s in the United States now, he’s not in any black community,” she said. “We want to give him every opportunity, but our people are hurting. The unemployment is unconscionable.”

During an appearance on CNN on Sunday, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) explained, “We are totally frustrated, and people need to know that the president feels their pain.” He added, “Almost every African American person I spoke to said he needs to fight, and fight harder.”
