  • Liberal defenders of the poor still fascinated with Scott Walker’s credit card debt

    I suppose Scott Walker is still polling a little too well for the comfort level of liberal commentators. If that weren’t the case, one wonders if they would still be so obsessed with the financial situation of one of the least wealthy candidates for the presidency. But since this tired story is being whipped up for another lap around the campaign track, let’s check in on the latest financial burdens being discussed around the kitchen table in the Walker household. (National Journal) Gov. Scott Walker has two credit-card debts of more than $10,000 apiece on separate cards and is...

    House Democrats have unveiled a $3.7 trillion budget plan for next year. It mirrors President Barack Obama’s call for $1.8 trillion in tax increases on wealthier people and corporations over the coming decade but would add almost $6 trillion to the national debt over that time. […] The plan calls for a wave of new spending for infrastructure like roads and bridges and additional funding for education and medical research. It would make modest curbs on the rapid growth of the popular Medicare program. …

    Two weeks ago former NYC Mayor Rudy Guiliani took a lot of heat from the media when he said President Obama doesn't love America during a fundraiser for Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. It turns out, many Americans agree with Guiliani's assessment. According to a new Fox News poll, the vast majority of Americans believe the United States is the greatest country in the world, but a smaller majority believe President Obama feels the same way. The new poll also finds the numbers saying Obama is patriotic, honest or a strong leader have all declined in the past few years. More...

    The federal debt this year will be double what it was before the financial crisis, Congress’ official budget scorekeeper projected Wednesday morning. The debt is on pace to reach 74 percent of the country’s economic output by the end of the year, double what it was in 2007 and the highest percentage since 1950, according to the Congressional Budget Office. In its update to its projections for the budget and economy, the agency slightly upped its estimate for the 2014 deficit, which it now expects to total $506 billion, a $170 billion decline from 2013. The federal debt this year...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Jim Gilchrist — one of the founders of the Minutemen Project — said he’s reaching out across America to recruit at least 3,500 volunteers who will go to the border to patrol and cover the “porous areas” between San Diego and Brownsville, Texas. The campaign is called “Operation Normandy,” and it’s set for May 1, 2015, Raw Story reported. “If you are familiar with the Normandy invasion of France in 1944, then you have an idea how large and logistically complicated this event will be,” Mr. Gilchrist said, Raw Story reported. “However, there is one difference. We are not going...

    How’s this for a State of the Union primer: Valerie Jarrett, President Obama’s closest adviser, attributed the gridlock and struggles of the last four years to a lack of patriotism among congressional Republicans. “The president has always reached out, he’s always looked for balanced solutions,” Jarrett said today on Morning Joe. “I think part of our frustration in the first four years is oftentimes seeing Republicans put their short term political interests ahead of what’s in the best interest of the country.” National Journal’s Ron Fournier reported that the White House was “stung by the coverage of the inaugural address”...

    Talk show host, Bill Press, doesn’t like the Star-Spangled Banner. Imagine: a liberal talk show that’s not on NPR! His radio show is simulcast on Current TV. Bill Press likes provoking conservatives, but I’m not sure we should be provoked by his outburst against the National Anthem. Bill Press seems to be testing the old philosopher’s question: If a tree falls in the forest and there’s no one there to hear it, does it make a noise? If you say something on Current TV, does anyone hear it? Press adds: “It is a major crusade of mine to get...

    Chris Hayes’ recent discomfort with the word hero reminded me of an anonymous quote from the civil war:If you are ashamed to stand by your colors, you had better seek another flag.

    ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- Sean May has been wearing an American flag pin to work every day for the last two years. "In this day, I kind of feel like it has a little bit more of a powerful meaning than just a pin on somebody's jacket, and I wear it with pride because I like where I live and I love this country," May said. The 26-year-old front desk supervisor at Casa Monica Hotel in the heart of downtown St. Augustine was told to take the pin off Thursday because it violates company policy. "I've actually gotten probably more...

    London: Sarah Palin has branded US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle `unpatriotic' and `racist'. In leaked extracts of her new book, Palin delves into the minefield of racial politics, arguing that Mr Obama is among those who regarded the conservative tea party movement as racially prejudiced and who thinks, "America is a fundamentally unjust and unequal country," reports the Telegraph. To back it up with evidence, she dredged up a quote from a 2008 campaign speech in which Mrs Obama said, "For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country". Palin went...

    One guaranteed way to set off individuals on the left is to say liberals do not love their country. This is a sure bet that fireworks will be produced from the plain anger that will erupt from them. As a Democratic Senator for New York in 2003, now Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton denounced angrily those who accuse liberals of being unpatriotic saying: "I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you're not patriotic. We should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right...

    I’m confused, the left always says we can’t question their patriotism, yet Matthew Rothschild, editor of The Progressive magazine, hates America and he’s proud of it. Note: We all know the vast majority of the left feels this way but don’t have the b-lls to admit it publicly… (The Progressive)- It’s July 4th, my least favorite holiday. And I’m not referring to the bugs, or the crowds, or the traffic on the highways. I’m talking about the mindless patriotic bubble bath we’re all supposed to soak in all weekend long. Well, not me.
