  • Boehner Responds to Reid: 'Go F— Yourself'

    "Go f— yourself," Boehner repeated. Politico reports on the exchange: House Speaker John Boehner couldn’t hold back when he spotted Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the White House lobby last Friday. It was only a few days before the nation would go over the fiscal cliff, no bipartisan agreement was in sight, and Reid had just publicly accused Boehner of running a “dictatorship” in the House and caring more about holding onto his gavel than striking a deal. “Go f— yourself,” Boehner sniped as he pointed his finger at Reid, according to multiple sources present. Reid, a bit startled,...

    Jeb Bush: “I mean, good God, man, read a book...Go watch ESPN!” Doesn't Jeb realize that Obama spends half his time as President golfing, partying and playing basketball? Interesting article in the NY Times profiling Jeb Bush and suggesting how he may be stepping forward to defend the Bush family name in light of Obama's continuing fingerpointing at his older brother who feels bound by the "ex President's code" and won't fire back. It's also an article that subtly speculates on whether Jeb might emerge to run for President himself. Here's an excerpt: For Jeb Bush, Life Defending the Family...

    Now that Obama managed to interrupt his golf game long enough to deliver an emotional high profile speech in the Oval Office with a stealth push for Carbon Credits, a crisis is once again on the way to being co-opted as an opportunity. Not that it's much of an opportunity for Obama who is polling worse than ever. The left is growing to resent him almost as much as the right, for not being the liberal messiah they expected him to be. The irony is that no matter how immature Obama may be, and out of touch with political realities...

Judd Gregg's withdrawal as Commerce Secretary, Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel said it is not "amateur hour" and that the Obama administration is still doing better than President Clinton was at this point. "Some may call it amateur hour. Having been in two separate White Houses, I'm more than — and within our third week given this set of accomplishments — measure them up," said Mr. Emanuel, who served as a senior adviser in the Clinton White House from 1993 to 1998....

    Predator drones flown from base in Pakistan, U.S. lawmaker says Sen. Feinstein's surprise disclosure likely to complicate joint campaign against Taliban militants Greg Miller | Washington Bureau 7:06 PM CST, February 12, 2009 WASHINGTON, D.C. - A senior U.S. lawmaker said Thursday that unmanned CIA Predator aircraft operating in Pakistan are flown from an airbase inside that country, a revelation likely to embarrass the Pakistani government and complicate its counterterrorism collaboration with the United States. The disclosure by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, marked the first time a U.S. official had publicly commented on...

    Rep. Tom Tancredo (Colo.) said at the Republican presidential debate Tuesday night that he would tell President Bush to not “darken the doorstep of the White House” if he were to win the presidency.Tancredo said top White House adviser Karl Rove once told him the same thing when he was at odds with Bush. Asked whether the current president would play a role in his own administration, Tancredo said, “I would have to tell George Bush exactly the same thing Karl Rove told me.” The lawmaker noted that he disagreed with Bush on many things, not just his signature issue...

I drove a car when I should not have, and was stopped by the L.A. County Sheriffs. The arresting officer was just doing his job and I feel fortunate that I was apprehended before I caused injury to any other person. I acted like a person completely out of control when I was arrested, and said things that I do not believe to be true and which are despicable. I am...

    Silvia Johnson, who became known as the "Cool mom" for partying with her children and their teenage friends, pleaded guilty this morning to a charge of violating bond conditions. Johnson, 41, is serving a 30-year sentence for plying high school boys with liquor, drugs and sex. She was charged with violating bond conditions and a protective order that barred her from contact with some of her children, while she was free awaiting sentencing. Johnson was arrested on the new charges after a Sept. 25 car crash in which a 14-year-old girl was driving. Johnson and a carload of teens, including...

    Rhode Island Governor Donald L. Carcieri has vetoed a "medical marijuana" bill, saying it would encourage marijuana use and criminal activity. His veto comes as an anti-drug group has released dramatic video footage of a marijuana activist declaring that he uses dope for a health problem that he doesn't really have. The bottom line for this activist, Ed Rosenthal, is that "I like to get high. Marijuana is fun." The video has the potential of dealing a major blow to the "medical marijuana" movement, largely funded by billionaire George Soros. The video footage, posted at the website http://www.sorosmonitor.com, gives the...

    GREEN BAY, Wis. - Randy Moss broke such new ground with a disgusting gesture after his game-clinching touchdown catch Sunday that Fox television refused to replay it - until the postgame show. The star receiver shot a fake moon at the Lambeau Field crowd, pretending to drop his pants, then rubbed himself on the padded goal post. It made previous controversial celebrations by NFL receivers Terrell Owens and Joe Horn look like harmless child's play.

    San Mateo Daily Journal ^ | August 27, 2003 | Daily Journal wire report
    California Democratic Party leaders yesterday blasted the Taco Bell restaurant chain for a sales promotion that counts sales of different menu items as votes in a mock California recall election. Last week the Mexican-style fast food chain launched the campaign, urging Californians to “put their vote where their mouth is.” Taco Bell restaurants statewide are tallying each purchase of a crunchy beef taco as a “vote” for Republican challenger Arnold Schwarzenegger and each purchase of a chicken soft taco as a “vote” for not recalling Gov. Gray Davis. In the first week of the unofficial poll, “votes” for any of...

    FR Columnists Corner "The Pro-Life Movement's Problem With Morality" Commentary by Cathryn CrawfordMaking claim to being pro-life in America is like shouting, “I’m a conservative Christian Republican!” from your rooftop. This is partly due to the fact that a considerable number of conservative Christian Republicans are pro-life. It’s hardly true, however, to say that they are the only pro-life people in America. Surprisingly enough to some, there are many different divisions within the pro-life movement, including Democrats, gays, lesbians, feminists, and environmentalists. It is not a one-party or one-group or one-religion issue. The pro-life movement doesn’t act like it, though....

    TEMPE, Ariz. -- We can now say it without much qualification: Maurice Clarett is a strange one. Humble freshmen don't get in the face of their position coach on national television. Teen-agers who haven't made their bones don't chase the head coach down the sidelines like Keyshawn Johnson yelling, "Give me the damn ball!" Normal 19-year-olds don't upstage a program for their own needs, as the Ohio State running back has done throughout the season. It's not unusual to find Maurice Clarett offering Jim Tressel coaching advice.(AP) The latest episode came Monday morning when Ohio State's talented first-year running back...
