“I think that over the last two and a half years there’s been an effort to go at me in a way that is politically expedient in the short-term for Republicans. But [it] creates, I think a problem for them when they want to actually run in a general election where most people feel pretty confident the President was born where he says he was, in Hawaii. He– he doesn’t have horns…we’re not really worrying about conspiracy theories or– or birth certificates,” President Obama told me.
Yet more Obama straw men, as for as I know, nobody is accusing Duumbo of either having horns or being the Devil. Dumbo’s problem is not extra body parts, rather it is missing or defective ones, such a functioning brain or any gonads. If Dumbo wants voters to believe he was born in Hawaii all he has to do is to show copy of his birth certificate. As the Gipper would say, trust but verify.
Does Dumbo even know where he was born? He certainly can’t remember and unless he has seen an actual copy of his birth certificate, he does not know. In the spirit of transparency, Obama should be open about the basis of his purported belief of to have been born in Hawaii.
Dumbo dithers, Alana Goodman notices Barack Obama’s inability to get serious with any of our nation’s problems, from Commentary :
Obama’s lack of dedication has become as depressing as it is reliable. “We’ll probably be talking in another in six months before another ‘great speech’ from the president who is in love with the sound of his own voice,” Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus said yesterday afternoon on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. “He’s in love with giving speeches . . . but he’s not really in love with following through with his promises and his rhetoric.”
Or maybe Dumbo is just dumb, from Roger L. Simon, Pajamas Media :
But what is it about Obama that makes him so boring? I submit it is something quite simple â€” he has nothing to say. He is a boring person, the quintessential “hollow man” in the T.S. Eliot sense. He is kind of a socialist, kind of a liberal, kind of a multi-culturalist, kind of an environmentalist, kind of globalist, kind of a budget cutter â€” but none of them with any real commitment. Basically, he’s a vague and uncommitted person pretending to be otherwise. He is the man that voted “present,” now in the presidency. The fact that he never specified the targets of “hope” and “change” during his election was far from a campaign ploy and more typical than we ever dreamed. There never was a there there. And now, I strongly suspect, there never will be.?
Dumbo seem to think all he needs to do to solve any problem is to give a campaign speech. That is certainly all that he does, of what his is capable. Alas the old adage: When the only tool you have a a hammer, all problems look like nails.

I spoke of Newburgh, NY, earlier. The big tragedy there just now involves a mother and three kids, in a murder-suicide. Domestic trouble. Mom drives her mini-van off a boat ramp into the Hudson River, killing herself and two of her three kids. The third, a ten year old, climbed out a window. Sadly, I do understand the things that motivate people to do such things, in a way. Acts of passion are the hardest ones to put any logic to, and I expect this is that. But how long will it be, I wonder, before we see calls to ban the Mom-van, which was used in this act? How many times will we see domestic disputes turn into mass murder-suicides with these weapons? Now, no, I’m not serious. But what if Mom had used a gun? Why the difference?
That figuring out the world stuff is above my pay grade. I don’t know why a mother goes off the deep end and does a Senator Oldsmobile. There as a lot of human beings out there, and some times some of the do strange things. However I am less a afraid of the occasional loose screw than I am of an all protective government.
Crystal Mangum to face possible murder charge, from Herald-Sun 
DURHAM — The man Crystal Mangum is accused of stabbing has died, Durham Police Department Chief Jose Lopez Sr. said Wednesday.
Mangum already was in jail under a $300,000 secured bond charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.
“More than likely, we will be upgrading the charge to murder,” Lopez said.
It time to get, and keep, Ms off the street. Ms Mangum is a thread to public safety. Put her away and keep her away from the public.

The woman who falsely accused three Duke University lacrosse players of raping and beating her  in a small bathroom of a house off campus stabbed a “boyfriend” earlier this month. Before that, she’d fought with a different “boyfriend” and burned his clothes in a bathtub. I was going to blog about the stabbing but changed my mind. The woman is a menace to society, and I didn’t want to waste bandwidth. Well, her latest antics have cost a man his life. News sources report that the stabbing victim has died .
The woman’s got much bigger problems now. What a life, eh? Pray for her children.
