Breakfast Scramble: Newt Plays Trump

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Questions for Dumbo, here just one from Victor Davis Hanson, Pajamas Media [1]:

We are to believe that future additional drilling in the U.S. will not help lower world oil or gas prices, but calling on the Middle East to pump more, or praising Brazil’s proposed commitment to offshore exploration, will?

VDH has a raft more at the link.

Newt the grenade thrower,  I don’t think Newt Gingrich is emotionally stable enough to be president, but he does know how to lob a political grenade, from Philip Rucker, Washington Post [2]:

MACON, Ga. — Newt Gingrich opened his presidential campaign here Friday night by introducing a jobs plan that would slash taxes and repeal an array of bureaucratic regulations.

Returning to the state where he launched his political career more than three decades ago, the Republican former House speaker presented himself in sharp contrast to President Obama, whom he derided as a “food stamp president.” Gingrich sounded a hopeful tone as he pledged that a Gingrich administration would reaffirm American exceptionalism.

I don’t trust Mr. Gingrich any farther than I can throw him, and I have bum throwing should.  However unlike the present president Mr. Gingrich at least has an education and somewhat about a room temperature IQ.

Matthew Ygelsias racist, Ygelsias can’t seem to get past this liberal stereotyped notion that racsm on an exclusive domain of whites, in reference to the odious Civil Rights Act of 1964 Yeelsias says [3]:

It was also in the 1960s and 1970s an absolutely vital tool in resolving a social and political crisis of gargantuan proportion. And though it has less practical significance today (it’s not like people are chomping at the bit to open segregated hotels), the Civil Rights Act remains an important tool against racism and an important token of America’s strong commitments to non-discriminatory norms.

Racism is hardly the exclusive domain on the white European, witness the Simpson Jury, Al Sharpton, Jeremiah Wright, Pigford and Barack Obama.

What Ygelsias needs to learn that in a free society, a man’s private thoughts and his private property are no concern of the state.

Bill Maher comic, from Jeff Poor Daily Caller [4]:

According to Maher, the cause of the killer tornado is obvious: Global warming [5].

Sure Bill.   Take your meds next time.
