Cruising the Web

Buzzfeed has pulled some pictures off of the blog of one of Mitt Romney's daughters-in-law. They title their display as "25 Photos of Mitt Romney Looking Perfectly Normal." A better title would be Mitt Romney relaxing with his family. He does look more relaxed and appealing surrounded by grandchildren though I suppose it is somewhat to his credit that he hasn't been using his grandchildren for photo ops during the campaign.

Larry Elder wonders
what if white celebrities said that they were voting for a candidate because of his race. Yet that is what Samuel L. Jackson said. Jackson seems to think that we all vote for the candidate who looks like we do. If that were true, Obama would not now be president.

Here are "five whoppers in Obama's energy speech."

Where is the outrage
that Egypt is putting 16 Americans on trial for promoting democracy in Egypt? And one of those Americans is the son of a member of Obama's cabinet. Is America so weak that we can't protect citizens abroad in a country that we've given so much aid to? Why isn't this a story on the news every day?

It's been six months and still no charges in the raid on Gibson Guitar.

What can we learn from Cardinal Richelieu?

Obama's 2012 campaign is quite sloppy in comparison to the sleek operation he had in 2008.

Dorothy Rabinowitz explains why the Democrats are drooling at the chance that Santorum would be the GOP nominee.

This is cute if you're a Pride and Prejudice fan.

"Where is the Outrage"?

The outrage is that the MSM could care less about the 16 Americans held unjustly in Egypt. To give them the reporting they deserve would be to inform the American public. To inform the American public would be to underscore that Obama's time in office has been nothing more or less than Jimmy Carter's second term.

Just five "whoppers"?

I can think of many more to add to the list but we can start with the idea that his speech was a necessary function of government that could only be done in Florida. Obama burned up over $675,000 to fly to that important election state to deliver a campaign speech and then conduct three fund raisers. The overall cost of this campaign junket was over $2,000,000. He could have made that speech from the front seat of a Volt parked in the Rose Garden but this was about campaign mileage, not about helping America through better energy policy.

I don't recall that the campaign that gave us "bitter clingers", attacked Joe the plumber, and threw grandma under to bus over involvement with the nutball preacher was so smooth.

Obama had the benefit of an MSM united in the desire to get him elected. They covered for him at every opportunity.
