Lobbyists Can't Approach, Unless it is for a Job.

Barack Obama has stated that no lobbyists will be allowed to approach his staff and other members of his administration. An admiral, yet unconstitutional, stab at keeping up appearances of purity and change. There is a hitch in this giddy-up though. Obama took money from lobbyists like a junkie at a methadone clinic during his campaign. Now he has resorted to hiring them. But don't you dare question him about it. You will get the "Obamastare." That is exactly what happened to a Politico reporter yesterday that tried to question POTUS about a former defense lobbyist that worked for Raytheon named William Lynn. Oh, the love affair may be over. The media has rolled over and taken a peek at what Barry looks like in the morning after a long night of celebrating and some bad choices. It's not a pretty sight. What was reporter Johnathon Martin thinking anyway? Trying to ask the Prez about something so serious as a defense department appointment? Just keep in mind that he is above questioning and everything will be alright. He is the chosen one, so whatever he decides is best for us is what we questions asked.

Help Wanted : Lobbyists Apply Within.

Big Government Versus Big Business

This surprising and sad statistic came my way today. America now has more people employed by the government than by the manufacturing sector.

Change? Responsibility? Anyone?

"A New Era of Responsibility"...Yeah, Right

While the world awakens from its all night Obamasm, I have to ponder the change that is upon us. The President campaigned on it and yesterday talked about a new era of responsibility. Not yet 24 hours into his administration, the change is drastic and the responsibility falls once again on the tax paying citizens of America.

Here are some headlines in the morning papers and on news sites.

"Obama White House Calls for repealing defense of marriage act."

"Obama moves to halt terror trials."

From Plans to repeal the Tiahrt Amendment and make guns "Child Proof."

"U.S. Stocks Slide in Dow Average’s Worst Inauguration Day Drop"

"Stimulus not enough, Soros warns U.S."

So, let me get all of this straight. We will be more responsible if we print another trillion dollars and hand it out like Pez to little kids. George Soros has set the stage for even more by lobbing the first "more money missile" from the liberal bunker. We will be more responsible if we close down Gitmo and tell the terrorists they are free to strike us again. We will definitely see change if the Defense of Marriage act is repealed. No doubt we will see change in crime rates. They will climb as law abiding citizens have their constitutional right to own, carry and use a firearm is stripped away by Obama and Holder.

I see change for sure. I see the government becoming responsible for the majority of our lives. I see the writing on the wall and I don't like it. Shouldn't a new era of responsibility include people being more responsible for themselves personally and not just for the tax burden they represent? Obama mania is runnig wild, but the hangover is coming.

Free At Last !


At 1:15 pm today, the White House announced that President Bush would indeed commute the sentences of border patrol agents Ramos and Compean.

This from Mike Gallagher:

What thrilling news: the White House just announced that the President will, indeed, commute the prison sentences of border patrol agents Ramos and Compean. Last week, I shared the fact that during my meeting in the Oval Office with President Bush, a meeting I had the privilege of sharing with a few of my talk radio friends and colleagues, I asked the President to consider commuting their sentences. His answer was off-the-record and I have respected that caveat. I will continue to respect it and not reveal what he told me. However, the ultimate vindication is the wonderful news that he heard me, and millions of Americans like me, who believe that their incarceration is a travesty of justice. Just a few minutes ago, my producer and I called Monica Ramos, Ignacio's wife, to congratulate her. Amazingly, she hadn't yet heard the news. And so I had the honor of being able to be the first to tell her the joyful news that her husband and father of their children would be coming home. As expected, she cried and screamed and laughed and shouted for joy. I have to confess, I did, too. Thank you, President Bush. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Finally a real life happy ending. I would like to add my thank you to Mr. Bush for doing the right thing.
