Breakfast Scramble; Another Gun Free Safety Zone Killing?

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Oslo, from Steven Erlanger,  New York Slimes [1]:

OSLO — The Norwegian police on Saturday charged a man they identified as a right-wing fundamentalist Christian in connection with the bombing of a government building in central Oslo and a shooting attack on a nearby island that together killed at least 92 people.

reax, John Hinderaker, Powerline [2]:

Many facts are still unknown, but at this point it appears that a key ingredient in the tragedy was the fact that the killer had the only gun on the island. It is, really, one of the ultimate horror scenarios: hundreds of kids, accompanied by a relative handful of adults, isolated on an island with a crazed killer. The outcome might have been very different if some of those adults had been armed.

Our sympathy to the loved ones of the victims.

Points:

Dumbo dumps on the economy, from Darrell Issa, via Jeff Dunetz Yid with Lid: [3]

“The Obama Administration has systematically blocked domestic energy production in the Gulf of Mexico, and today’s report puts that action in stark terms. It documents a 250 percent increase in the deepwater exploration permit backlog with a decrease of nearly 80 percent for plan approvals and deepwater drilling. That means a loss of $9 billion dollars in capital investment in 2011, along with a projected loss to the government of $25 billion in royalties and tax payments over the next 3 years, to say nothing of the tens of thousands of jobs lost.

“Our domestic energy resources are the largest in the world. Tapping these resources will create more than 500,000 jobs in the next three years, grow the economy and put us on the path to recovery

Brooks dumps on Dumbo, Barack Obama has now even lost David Brooks, at least for the weekend, from Jeff Poor, Daily Caller [4]:

After Friday night’s presidential press conference, even one of the left’s favorite conservatives is scratching his head at President Barack Obama’s demeanor.

New York Times columnist David Brooks, who once praised Obama for the crease in his pants, said he was upset with Obama for being angry in public in an appearance on PBS’s “NewsHour” on Friday night

What Dumbo does not understand and what he will never understand is that if I can make you lose your temper, I have power over you.   When you display your lose of temper, you are admitting that the other party has power over you.   Speaker John Boehner has power over Obama, and Dumbo lust told the whole world.  So just how smart is Dumbo?

Fat Lady sings the blues, from Patrick B. Pexton, Washington Post [5]:

Hat tip: Syllable Soup

So it was last week when Post readers called and wrote to criticize a blog post and a column about first ladies.

The July 11 Post Politics blog entry on Michelle Obama’s 1,700-calorie excursion to Shake Shack in Dupont Circle for a burger, fries, chocolate shake and a Diet Coke elicited howls. Readers saw it as a trivial, News-of-the-World type story and a lowering of The Post’s standards.

Two points, one the Fat Lady of the United State, one Michelle Obama is fat,and two this fat lady set herself up ad the food police for the nation. If Mrs. Obama wants to to the entire nation what to eat,and what not to eat, then expect scrutiny of her diet to be fair game.

Weiner’s weiner and Mrs.  Clinton, from Daily Caller [7]:

In the aftermath of the Weinergate scandal, former Congressman [8] Anthony Weiner is telling his friends he is most concerned about earning back the trust of the woman who means so much to him. Yes, Hillary Clinton.

“My problem is that I have three women I have to convince that I’m cured: Huma, her mother — and Hillary,” Weiner reportedly told a friend.

Color me befuddled.   Mrs. Clinton clearly has never cared where Mr. Clinton put the family weiner.    So why does she care about the Weiner Family weiner?   You tell me
