Breakfast Scramble

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble

Chicago Way is a two way street, from John Kass, Chicago Tribune [1]:

It’s no secret that some in journalism get offended when anyone dares mention that the president was involved in Chicago politics. But the filing is not only a legal document, it’s a political message from Blagojevich to Obama. So allow me to translate the Chicago Way

File under ratricide.

Obama Care,  is a one way street to pay more, neutral analysis of Dim Won’s medical turd, Ricardo Alonzo-Zaldivar, Associated Press [2]:

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul law is getting a mixed verdict in the first comprehensive look by neutral experts: More Americans will be covered, but costs are also going up.

Economic experts at the Health and Human Services Department concluded in a report issued Thursday that the health care remake will achieve Obama’s aim of expanding health insurance — adding 34 million to the coverage rolls.

But the analysis also found that the law falls short of the president’s twin goal of controlling runaway costs, raising projected spending by about 1 percent over 10 years. That increase could get bigger, since Medicare cuts in the law may be unrealistic and unsustainable, the report warned.

Obama Care comes crashing down on vulnerable House democrats. Jim Geraghty, National Review [3], notes the number of House democrats who publicly bet that Obama Care would bring down the cost of health care,  and lost.   Now the only thing Obama care is likely to bring down, is Mrs. Pelosi’s regime as Speaker.

Oh by the way, Allah Pundit, Hot Air [4],  links that Jon Stewart thinks the very term Obama Care is derogatory.   Sobeit.  So how long before the MSM deems the term racist as well?   Should I feel slighted that Stewart didn’t mention my term Dumbo as well?

Professor Jacobson is shocked Legal Insurrection [5]:

The Numbers Were A Lie All Along

The gloss is off the Obamacare rose, if it ever were there. The Office of the Actuary of Medicare has released a report which finds that Obamacare will increase, not decrease, health care costs, and … (wait for it because you never would have guessed) … the financial assumptions were unrealistic!

Shocked, shocked.

Circus Wars, Chuckles bites Dumbo, Dim Won’s b/k/a Barack Obama, Middle East peace policy is insane, and now even Chuckles the Clown, b/k/a Senator Charles Schumer, says so, via Allah Pundit Hot Air [6]:

I told the President, I told Rahm Emanuel and others in the administration that I thought the policy they took to try to bring about negotiations is counter-productive, because when you give the Palestinians hope that the United States will do its negotiating for them, they are not going to sit down and talk. Palestinians don’t really believe in a state of Israel, they, unlike a majority of Israelis, who have come to the conclusion that they can live with a 2-state solution to be determined by the parties, the majority of Palestinians are still very reluctant, and they need to be pushed to get there. If the U.S. says certain things and takes certain stands the Palestinians say, “Why should we negotiate?”…

Chuckles finally remembers that in the Empire State, Jews still vote.
