Breakfast Scramble: An Obama Easter

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Dumbo in over his trunk, from By Jennifer Rubin, Washington Post [1]:

Obama out of depth in troubled times

President Obama’s approval ratings are languishing in the mid-40s again. Conservatives argue that Obama lacks executive acumen. They say that he’s a prisoner of leftist ideology, immune to facts and experience. There’s a lot to all of that.

But what we’ve learned over the past couple of years is that Obama, in no small part due, one can surmise, to years of fawning by rapt liberal academics and pols anxious to praise every utterance, is thin on knowledge and nearly entirely bereft of strategic thinking.

Dumbo, b/k/a Barack Obama, may be the most poorly  educated president in history.   The man has a bevy of credentials, but no evidence of  ever having received an education.

Dumbo the un-Christian, from Jordan Fabian, Hill [2]:

The White House slammed influential evangelical leader the Rev. Franklin Graham on Monday for questioning President Obama’s birthplace.

Graham, a son of the Rev. Billy Graham who has served as a spiritual adviser to several presidents with his father, said on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday that Obama “has some issues to deal with” when it comes to his birth certificate.

“It’s unfortunate that a religious leader would use Easter Sunday to make preposterous” statements, White House press secretary Jay Carney responded Monday.

Sure Mr.  Carney, pretends Easter is some big deal to the Obama White House, from Fox News [3]:

President Obama failed to release a statement or a proclamation recognizing the national observance of Easter Sunday, Christianity’s most sacred holiday.

By comparison, the White House has released statements recognizing the observance of major Muslim holidays and released statements in 2010 on Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha.

The White House also failed to release a statement marking Good Friday. However, they did release an eight-paragraph statement heralding Earth Day. Likewise, the president’s weekend address mentioned neither Good Friday or Easter

So what every view the Obama White House has of Easter, it is even more trivial that the pagan holiday, Earth Day.

Dumbo’s war on energy, and you wonder why the price of gasoline continue to soar, from Fox News [4]:

Shell Oil Company has announced it must scrap efforts to drill for oil this summer in the Arctic Ocean off the northern coast of Alaska. The decision comes following a ruling by the EPA’s Environmental Appeals Board to withhold critical air permits. The move has angered some in Congress and triggered a flurry of legislation aimed at stripping the EPA of its oil drilling oversight.


The closest village to where Shell proposed to drill is Kaktovik, Alaska. It is one of the most remote places in the United States. According to the latest census, the population is 245 and nearly all of the residents are Alaska natives. The village, which is 1 square mile, sits right along the shores of the Beaufort Sea, 70 miles away from the proposed off-shore drill site.

Good-bye Katie, from Laura Donovan, Daily Caller: [5]

CBS News anchor Katie Couric is expected to confirm later this week that she’s ending her five-year run with “CBS Evening News”, reports the New York Times.

I actually like Katie. She is sweet.  Alas reading the news is not her nitch in life.  However, will remind Katie that I am still available.
