A Delusional San Fran Nan Pelosi Denies Federal Deficit Is Due To Spending Problem … “It is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem”
More genius from the LEFT …
This morning on FOX News Sunday, former Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told Chris Wallace “it was almost a false argument to say the US has a spending problem.” That is correct, San Fran Nan actually said that the US did not have a spending problem. She not only said it once, she said it twice. Yea, no spending problem, that’s why the federal deficit has been over a trillion dollars every year since Obama has been in office. Could some one explain to me how these people are elected?
From The Hill:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday called sequestration “a bad idea all around” and urged a balance of spending cuts and closed tax loopholes to avoid it.
Pelosi rebuffed GOP calls for the sequester replacement to focus exclusively on targeting more spending cuts and entitlement reforms.
“It is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem. We have a budget deficit problem that we have to address,” she told Fox News’s Chris Wallace on Sunday.
Pelosi added that the deficit and debt are at “immoral levels” and “must be reduced.”
“It isn’t as much a spending problem as much as it is priorities,” she said, arguing that tax subsidies were a better target than additional cuts that could hit programs such as education.
A recent FOX News poll indicated that 83% of Americans think that the federal government has a spending problem. Um, how did Obama win reelection again? How does Pelosi come up with such an idiotic statement and actually keep a straight face? Could the Botox have finally got to her brain, the Lonely Conservative seems to think so and with all that plastic surgery, it’s rather easy to keep a straight face. BTW House Minority Leader Pelosi, with all the money that we have spent on education, it has failed our children.

President Obama Scolds FOX News for Not Giving Him A Media Pass Like the Rest of the MSM … Trying to Silence Those Who Dare Question Him
THE IMPERIAL PRESIDENT WHO THINKS ALL MUST AGREE WITH HIM OR ELSE …
America, want to know why “We the People” have a First Amendment and there is “Freedom of the Press”? Our Founding Fathers provided us with these liberties to prevent exactly what Barack Obama is attempting to do in bullying the media not to question his policies and agenda. Greta Van Susteren references this very notion as she stated, ”apparently President Obama wants his usual media pass and Fox challenges his policies – which happens to be the media’s job.” Believe it or not America, it is American to question your leaders.
The ultimate bully
This was in response to President Barack Obama’s interview with The New Republic where he called out FOX News and Rush Limbaugh for being the problem with the dysfunction in Washington, DC and the gridlock due to GOP obstruction. Obama claimed that it if FOX News would not punish and bully Republicans when they do compromise, that things would be different. Does some one need to inform Obama that it is the media’s role to always question our government, not agree with them? But for Obama, the Imperial president, who seems more comfortable acting as a dictator than he does working under the confines of the US Constitution and our Republic.
President Obama in response to a question about working with Republicans: “One of the biggest factors is going to be how the media shapes debates. If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you’ll see more of them doing it. I think John Boehner genuinely wanted to get a deal done, but it was hard to do in part because his caucus is more conservative probably than most Republican leaders are, and partly because he is vulnerable to attack for compromising Republican principles and working with Obama.
The same dynamic happens on the Democratic side. I think the difference is just that the more left-leaning media outlets recognize that compromise is not a dirty word. And I think at least leaders like myself—and I include Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi in this—are willing to buck the more absolutist-wing elements in our party to try to get stuff done.
Greta Van Susteren went on to call out Obama and Democrats for the bullies that they really are. Which plays into the age old adage that we have known all along that if you are accusing some one else of doing something, you yourself are probably the guilty one. Who does not believe that Democrat leadership pressure and intimidate their members not to go on Fox News and if they do are provided pro-Obama talking points?
And do you know what else? Brace yourself for this one! Some Democrats have told me that they want to come on Fox to discuss issues but they get heat from their Leadership for appearing on Fox. Does President Obama know that? So which Party is intimidating its members? And to say Senator Harry Reid is willing to compromise is just wrong. He has not allowed a budget to get to the Senate Floor for years to even begin a discussion. The budget process is where all compromise begins and ends and ended it before it even got started.
This is not the first time that Obama has done this. From the outset that have tried to marginalize and prevent Fox News from having the same access as the rest of the complicit, corrupt media complex. Otherwise known as the Obama propaganda machine.
FOX News Nation Only 3 Days Behind Scared Monkeys Post on More People Killed With Fists, Hammers, Clubs and Knives than Rifles
File this one under the category of it’s better late than never … Hammers more deadly than rifles.
While the MSM, even FOX News, these days is more concerned with news pregnancy stories of Kim Kardashian, Lindsey Lohans’s never ending drunken episodes and other irrelevant celebrities like Honey Boo Boo … Fox News Nation has finally got around to publishing a story via Breitbart – Big Government that Scared Monkeys had posted on 12/31/12 regarding how more people are killed by fists/hands/feet, bats, hammers and knives than those evil assault rifles. With Democrats trying to exploit the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that sadly saw 26 individuals, including 20 children, murdered at the hands of a crazed gunman, it would appear that the Dems refuse to look at the statistical facts. We were only three days ahead of the news cycle of a link that was on the Drudge Report. Because far be it that a web site that covers high, medium and lw profile crimes against children be ahead of the game. According to FBI statistics more people are hammers, clubs, hands and fists than rifles. So does this mean that Democrats will attempt to ban Louisville Sluggers, hammers and individuals own hands? Q and O opines, should DiFi ban assault hammers? Are we going to have to register hammers, especially the scary looking dark colored ones?
According to the FBI annual crime statistics, the number of murders committed annually with hammers and clubs far outnumbers the number of murders committed with a rifle.
This is an interesting fact, particularly amid the Democrats’ feverish push to ban many different rifles, ostensibly to keep us safe of course.
However, it appears the zeal of Sens. like Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) is misdirected. For in looking at the FBI numbers from 2005 to 2011, the number of murders by hammers and clubs consistently exceeds the number of murders committed with a rifle.
Think about it: In 2005, the number of murders committed with a rifle was 445, while the number of murders committed with hammers and clubs was 605. In 2006, the number of murders committed with a rifle was 438, while the number of murders committed with hammers and clubs was 618.
And so the list goes, with the actual numbers changing somewhat from year to year, yet the fact that more people are killed with blunt objects each year remains constant.
Also, what SM found out during the review of murders is that more people were killed by DUI illegal immigrants than were killed by rifles. Imagine that, so will Democrats ban illegals immigrants for the safety of our children? NOT A CHANCE. Are Democrats really sincere about their protection of children, or is this gun grab just another example of Democrats not letting an opportunity go to waste?
UPDATE I: Just in case you thought this was misinformation, check out the FBI stats for yourself. BTW, check out the trend of total fire arm deaths, they are actually going down, not up.
Fox News Chris Wallace on VP Joe Biden’s Reprehensible Behavior : “I’ve Never Seen a Debate Where one Candidate Was So Disrespectful” … Huckabee refered to him as Obnoxious Drunk
Biden’s behavior is a microcosm of what has been in the White House for the last four years …
Following the Vice Presidential debate after VP Joe Biden acted in one of the most inappropriate and condescending manner, Fox News Cris Wallace commented of Biden’s actions … “I’ve Never Seen a Debate Where one Candidate Was So Disrespectful”. To interrupt some one this many times makes the Bush-Gore debate of the famed Gore sighing make Al look down right respectful. What Biden did was shameful. Is it no wonder that the Obama-Biden Administration has failed so miserably and failed to have and bipartisan legislation?
UPDATE I: Former Governor Mike Huckabee Compares him to an obnoxious drunk.
Patches O’ Hoolihan Would be Proud, Obama’s Senior Adviser David Axelrod Dodges Whether Americans Better Off Than Years Ago … Axelrod Masters the 5 D’s of Dodgeball, Dodge, Duck, Dip, Dive & Dodge (So Does Plouffe)
We have finally found the theme of the Barack Obama reelection campaign. It’s not “Forward” … ITS DODGE!!!
This morning on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, President Barack Obama’s chief adviser David Axelrod refused to answer the question that all incumbent reelection campaigns have to, is America better off than they were four years ago? Instead, Axelrod did his best dodge that only Patches O’ Hoolihan of the movie ‘Dodgeball’ could have been proud of. For Axelrod and Team Obama, “if you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a political question about the failed Obama economic policies”. Axelrod actually said, “that we are in a better position today than we were four years ago.” This is what they are going to tell the American people? Seriously, how does an incumbent President not going to answer questions on his record? Axelrod and Obama actually think they are going to run the campaign based on the 5 D’s of Dodgeball … “dodge, dip, duck, dive and, um dodge”.
As stated at Hot Air, how pathetic and telling is it that the head of Obama’s reelection team suddenly goes mute and tries to run away from the question by talking about the tough environment Barack Obama inherited. Wallace used the following stats, Unemployment: 7.8% then, 8.3% now – Median income: $54,983 then, $50,964 now – Gas prices: $1.85 per gallon then, $3.78 now – National debt: $10.6 trillion then, $15.9 trillion now and expected to go over $16 trillion during the Democrat National Convention.
Also on ABC’s ‘This Week’ George Stephanopoulosasked Obama’s senior White House adviser David Plouffe whether Americans are better off today than they were four years ago. Plouffe also dodged the question as he was taught as opined by the Lonely Conservative, if you can’t answer the question, just avoid it. In other words … “if you can dodge a car, you can dodge an economic question of the failed Obama presidency.
Asked the same question repeatedly host George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week,” President Barack Obama’s senior White House adviser, David Plouffe, reverted to talking points about job creation and the failings of the Bush administration.
“We were this close to a Great Depression,” Plouffe said at one point, pinching his thumb to his index finger.
Stephanopoulos cut him short.
“You still can’t say yes,” he told Plouffe.
As Doug Ross stated, look for the Obama minions to only appear on the complicit, corrupt media complex and away from Fox News where they might actually be asked and expected to answer a question. Now the question is will the liberal, in the tank media and the moderators ask the question to Obama during the debates?
Mandatory Viewing for All Obama reelection mouthpieces … The 5 D’s of political dodgeball” Dodge, Duck, Dip, Dive and Dodge!
Fox News Sean Hannity Gets George Zimmerman’s Exclusive Interview … Discusses Night He Shot Trayvone Martin, “I Looked up and He Punched Me and Broke my Nose.” … He Prays for Trayvon’s Family Daily (VIDEO)
Tonight Fox News Sean Hannity scored the exclusive interview with George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch man in Sanford, FL who shot and killed Trayvon Martin. Did you think that Al Sharpton and MSNBC would get the interview? The case has become a polarizing news story of racism, media bias and anti-gun law agenda. Sadly, once the bias liberal media attached themselves to the case, the facts became irrelevant.
However, as the prosecution has released information in the case under Florida Sunshine laws, some of which should never have been released and was only done so to sway public opinion and inflame prejudice against Zimmerman. Tonight George Zimmerman flanked by his attorney Mark O’ Mara went on their own PR offensive. Amazingly Zimmerman went through the events of the evening where he followed Trayvon Martin, got into a scuffle with Martin while getting his nose broken and eventually shooting Martin dead. Some will call it a crazy legal move for a man facing second degree murder charges, others will say that the case is being tried in the court of public opinion, why not present your side to the public. During the interview George Zimmerman said, “I am sorry that they buried their child. I can’t imagine what it must feel like. I pray for them daily.”
Martin soon turned to confront Zimmerman and “asked me what my problem was” before the exchange escalated into violence, Zimmerman told Hannity in his first TV interview, conducted in an undisclosed location in Florida. The 28-year-old, with his attorney sitting by his side, said he reached into his pocket to find his phone to call 911 for a second time, and “I looked up and he punched me and broke my nose.” At one point Zimmerman said he heard Martin “telling me he’s going to kill me.”
The case drew intense national attention as speculation grew about the motives for the shooting, especially given that Martin was black. Zimmerman has white and Hispanic heritage. He dismissed suggestions by some that he acted out of racism. “I don’t think it’s fair that they rushed to judgment to assume that,” he told Fox News.
“I do want to tell everyone, my wife, my family, my parents, my grandmother, the Martins, the city of Sanford and America that I’m sorry that this happened,” he said. “I hate to think that because of this incident, because my actions, it’s polarized and divided American. And I’m truly sorry.”

Charles Krauthammer Rips Obama’s Business Speech: “Spoken By A Man Who Never Created Or Ran So Much As A Candy Store”
On Fox News Special Reports Charles Krauthammer pretty much summed up President Barack Obama’s entire “epic fail” of handling the US economy and the misguided and dangerous views of a president hell bent on destroying what little is left. Krauthammer responded to Obama’s idiotic comments made in Roanoke, VA where Obama stated, “If you’ve got a business … you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” Charles says … “Spoken By A Man Who Never Created Or Ran So Much As A Candy Store”

Does America really want 4 more years of this? Can America afford 4 more years of Obama?
MORE TSA INCOMPETENCE … and their war on toddlers and Geraldo.
On Friday’s Fox News ‘Fox & Friends,’ Geraldo Rivera was supposed to comment on the story of an 8 month old little girl was removed from a Jet Blue plane because she was on the terror fly list. They claimed it was a computer glitch. NO SH*T SHERLOCK!!! However, instead Geraldo recounted his own personal experience with the TSA, emphasis on personal. Geraldo said, “I got manually raped by a guy,” said Rivera. “This guy, it seemed to me, was getting off on it.”
Geraldo further discussed his efforts to get off of the no fly list and the egregious incompetence of the TSA. Geraldo went on to discuss his last experience with the TSA flying to Afghanistan and getting off the no fly list … YIKES!!!
Geraldo Rivera appeared on Fox & Friends on Friday where he described an intrusive inspection he had received from a Transportation Security Administration officer on a recent trip to Afghanistan. “I got manually raped by a guy,” said Rivera. “This guy, it seemed to me, was getting off on it.”
I finally – I guess, Gretchen – after enough kicking and screaming and embarrassing, embarrassment to the TSA of their utter incompetence in terms of managing this program – they talked about glitches in the computer program – at some point, they finally got it together. But it was quite a while. And, you know, there’s a lot of dysfunction in the TSA. I think there is a lot of merit in people who say it should be re-privatized. I don’t necessarily endorse that, but I tell you the last time I flew to Afghanistan I got manually raped by a guy who – the scanner wasn’t working…
Geraldo Rivera transcript from The Blaze:
But Rivera‘s TSA woes weren’t over: “I tell you the last time I flew to Afghanistan I got manually raped by a guy who – the scanner wasn’t working.”
“He wanted to make sure…” host Steve Doocy offered.
“But making sure is one thing,” Rivera said. “This guy, it seemed to me, was getting off on it, I — ”
“Oh my gosh,” host Gretchen Carlson laughed.
“ — and the more and the tighter I got and the angrier I got,” said Rivera. “He just wanted to be a little more intimate.”
Has the LEFT no Shame … Bob does it again …
Lefty Bob Beckel lost his mind last night on the ‘Hannity’ show as he dropped the “F” bomb live on TV. Making matters worse, he refused to apologize. After coming back from a commercial, Beckel screamed at Jennifer Stefano of AFP Pennsylvania, “You don’t know what the f*ck you’re talking about!”
From Mediaite …
Bob Beckel didn’t realize when the commercial break ended during tonight’s final segment of Hannity, caught in a heated off-camera argument with fellow panelist Jennifer Stefano. Off-air debates, we thus learned, are granted a much more colorful range of vocabulary than on-air debates, and as the cameras started rolling, the first words on national television were, “You don’t know what the f*ck you’re talking about.”
UPDATE I: The Other McCain has an interesting follow up and take on the apologies not for what Beckel said, but for Beckel. It would seem that the “establishment” boys club are circling of the wagons. I would agree, interesting how the so-called seasoned pro Democrat consultant could not take the prodding during the commercial break from a little girl. Really Bob? My apologies to my favorite “Rabid Shrew” … Jennifer Stefano for the little girl comment, done for effect to show what an oaf Beckel truly is. Follow Jennifer on Twitter, HERE.
Hmmmm. Is there some kind of “boys club” thing going on here? Grant that going after an antagonist during the commercial break is probably considered “unprofessional” among TV commentators. But the protective circle-the-wagons defense of Beckel would seem to be rather — what’s that fancy word the feminists use? — gendered.
We’ll let the feminists decide whether the token Democrat on Fox News is guilty of being a MISOGYNISTIC PATRIARCHAL OPPRESSOR, and just give props to our favorite “rabid shrew.”
BTW, sorry but the excuses for Beckel don’t cut it. This is not the first time by any stretch that he has had a potty mouth on Fox. Beckel refused to say he was sorry last night. Take a good look at the VIDEO below of other Beckel apology moments for ignorant comments. Its all fun and games until you use the “F” word.
Just curious … who is tired of Beckel’s BS … this act is old and lame. Watch Bob swear, see Bob apologize, watch Bob swear again. LAME!
