Breakfast Scramble

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Bring I Won on, Dim Won goes to California to boost Barbara Boxer, Sean J. Miller, Hill [1]:

President Barack Obama returns to Southern California on Monday for his first fundraising swing in nearly a year to lend support to Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.).

The three-term Democrat has seen her reelection prospects diminish as the Golden State’s unemployment rate has climbed above 12 percent and the GOP prepares to field a well-funded challenger

Dumbo certainly has the reverse  Midas touch.

Then send him back home, David Weigel, Washington Post [2]:

Former congressman Tom Tancredo’s speech at the National Tea Party was a misstep that gave organizers their only lasting, negative coverage.  At a Sunday afternoon tea party rally in Greenville, S.C., where he was the keynote speaker, Tancredo stepped in it [3] again.

[Tancredo] said Americans have reached the point where “we’re going to have to pray that we can hold on to this country.”As for Obama, Tancredo said, “If his wife says Kenya is his homeland, why don’t we just send him back?”

The reference is to this speech [4] by Michelle Obama, in which she mentioned her husband’s famous trip to Kenya in 2006 [5] — she called it, in a slip, his “home country,” not “homeland.”  Kenya was one of several African countries [6] visited by the Obamas on the 2006 trip, but the only one to which he had familial ties — hence the word “home,” which she hesitates over just slightly.

Michelle Obama is a Harvard Educated Lawyer.  Don’t we have the right to assume that as a college educated lawyer she has command of the English Language and her words can be taken at face value?   As Obama was educated on the meanings of words, does not a citizen such as Tom Tancredoh have the right to pose a question premised on her words being true?

If Tancredo, A private citizen, is such a minor figure, why is Weigel having such an effing cow over the question Trancredo posed?   Do not citizens in representative republic have the right as ask questions?

Better right late, than never, national republicans to dump Charlies Crist:

Washington (CNN [7]) — The top political strategist for Senate Republicans urged key GOP consultants Monday to persuade Florida Gov. Charlie Crist to forgo an independent bid for Senate if he withdraws from the Republican primary, CNN has learned.

Rob Jesmer, executive director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, sent an e-mail to national political operatives just before noon in which he also predicted that Crist will decide not to compete in the GOP primary against former state House Speaker Marco Rubio.

If true, a belated hat tip to the Senate republicans.

Public Employee labor unions are the problem, I am not anti-union. I recognize the important role that private sector unions played in improving life for working class families.  That said, I have no freeping use for public sector employee unions and would gladly banish them.  If  they ever served a puipose, it has long gone,a and yes I am talking about you Danny Doyle.  From Steve Malanga, City [8]:

The camera focuses on an official of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), California’s largest public-employee union, sitting in a legislative chamber and speaking into a microphone. “We helped to get you into office, and we got a good memory,” she says matter-of-factly to the elected officials outside the shot. “Come November, if you don’t back our program, we’ll get you out of office.’

World’s Second Sexist Man? First I noticed Mrs Wertz’s blog post “Today’s blogging is brought to you by Old Spice. [9]”   That is I noticed the embeds, but did not view.  Then I noticed Mrs. Shaidle’s blog post  “Allan West: the Congressman your Congressman could smell like [10].”    Then I viewed the video:

Get of hold of Ann Coulter’s reax.  Enjoy.
