  1. The real reason Tax-Cheat-Geithner is leaving: he will go back to making $$$ on Wall Street like the rest of Obama’s cabinet.

    ****

    I am suprised that Marilyn Buck was not invited to the WH. Marxism is politisuance dujour, and part and parcel of the Obama Administration. Buck was one of the people Obama wrote that he was in search of…

    ****

    It was right for MSNBC to suspend Halperin (idiot #1), but they should have also suspended Mika and Joe (idiots #2 and #3) for egging on Halperin and telling him, he was covered by a 7-second delay. MSNBC will eventually *implode* in the next several years and close.

    ****

    Gates received a Medal of Freedom? WTF? What about the 18-year old Marine Private in Khandahar province who fought off 20 Taliban at the cost of 2 Marines? What about the other 40,000 U.S. service personnel who are in harm’s way? Sheesh …

  2. Should we be surprised that Eric Holder is releasing Marxist domestic terrorists when we know his history? Marc Rich and the FALN pardons comes to mind. I’m sure we will be seeing Marilyn Buck working in the Obama administration in no time flat.

  3. Another stunning revelation on MSNBC’s morning show; MsMika asked the guests if they support the President and the answer was “yes, we support the President, but not necessarily Obama”. MrJoe then said that the “WhiteHouse” was complaining that they don’t have enough guests on the show that support the President, even though the historic ratio of Dems to Repub guests is about 10/1.
    The “WhiteHouse” obviously believes that the MorningJoe show on MSNBC is an arm, not of the Dem party, but of the re-election campaign of MrO. Their immediate response to the editor of TimeMag’s assessment of MrO’s behaviour at the presser by MrCarney and the bended-knee apology by the managment of MSNBC shows a news outlet under the thumb and direction of the “WhiteHouse”.

    • Joe Scarborough is the token quasi-conservative on MesSNBC. Now they want to remove all appearances of fairness for the title of official state-run media. I can’t understand how anyone with a shred of self-respect could work for that network when they know Chairman Obama can and will fire them if they don’t dance to his music.

      • Yeah, young Jay went boohooing after Halperin committed truth. Halperin is usually a toady–I bet it did shock them. He probably should not have been so honest. That never ends well.

  4. People have to understand that cutting the government budget simply means laying off government employees. Assuming that the average government job costs $100,000, this means that $1-Trillion Dollars in cuts means 10,000,000 people laid off. That’s 10,000,000 new jobless competing with the current jobless for the few existing positions. Isn’t that a brilliant way to boost employment ?
