Breakfast Scramble (Tuesday)

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Dumbo’s delusions, Barack Obama is, at best, a very ordinary man, with a very extraordinary ego, from Ralph R. Reiland, Pittsburgh Tribune [1]:

That might be the problem at the White House.

U.S. Rep. Marion Berry, D-Ark., made public President Obama’s answer to conservative Democrats, worried about the unpopularity of ObamaCare in their districts, when they asked in a White House meeting why 2010 might resemble the negative backlash that greeted Bill Clinton’s flawed 1994 attempt at health care reform: “Well, the big difference here and in ’94 was you’ve got me.” That’s what Sonny said to Cher, 1965.

The actual “big difference” turned out to be Obama losing even more seats than Clinton. “The Democratic Party under Barack Obama in 2010 suffered the greatest defeat for a newly elected president in a midterm since the Republican Party under Warren Gamaliel Harding in 1922,”

The trouble with artificial self esteem, such as Obama’s, is that is never survives contact with the real world.

Dazed Dumbo, the magic is gone and Barack Obama can’t get other nations to follow his lead, from San Francisco Chronicle [2]

Shellacked at home, shellacked abroad. President Obama’s Asia trip is extending a losing streak with the latest setback – a refusal by other major financial powers to follow his lead to revive the global economy.

Few people still believe in Keynesian economics, even few who sober.

Janet Naplitano lies her Behar off, Useless Toady [3]:

Nearly a year after a thwarted terrorist attack on a Detroit-bound airliner last Christmas Day, the recent attempt by terrorists to conceal and ship explosive devices aboard aircraft bound for the United States reminds us that al-Qaeda and those inspired by its ideology are determined to strike our global aviation system and are constantly adapting their tactics for doing so.

Our best defense against such threats remains a risk-based, layered security approach that utilizes a range of measures, both seen and unseen, including law enforcement, advanced technology, intelligence, watch-list checks and international collaboration.

Discrete my Behar.  There is no threat based profile on three year old girds.   Transportation Security Perverts frisk children to get their rocks off, video:

If TSA grope downs are so discrete, I ask that Ms Napolitano submit to a grope down by a yet to be selected Bitsblog volunteer.   Count me out, I don’t grope old Behars.
