Two Busts … Only One Lie

British correspondent Nile Gardiner wrote eloquently about the Churchill bust debacle, referring to the Obama White House’s attitude as “amateurish.” (First URL below.)

Show me the money

The June 2012 campaign finance reports reveal an unsurprising pattern:

Obama spent more than he took in (received $46 million, spent $58 million), while Romney spent less (received $33 million, spent $27.5 million).

July totals are due at the Federal Elections Commission by Aug. 15.

Meanwhile, Obama and his team are sending out more frequent and increasingly desperate-sounding pleas for money, howling that Romney has an unfair financial advantage.

The advantage may or may not be real when you figure in PAC and political party spending. Regardless, I think it’s a bit rich of the Obama machine to complain!

In 2008, Obama reneged on his promise to stay within the public campaign financing limits that McCain agreed to, has been fund-raising the entire time Obama’s been in the White House and did not have to spend anything on a 50 State primary fight.

A recent fund-raising email from VP Biden had the subject line: “Romney defeats Obama?” The text warned that such a headline might be possible on the day after the election if supporters don’t dig deep into their pockets now.

“Don’t let anyone convince you that this is a sure thing — our opponents have almost unlimited resources at their disposal, and we already know they’ll outspend us by a good amount,” Mr. Biden warned. “What we do now decides the headlines on November 7th.”

Romney’s campaign manager forwarded Mr. Biden’s e-mail to Romney’s list of supporters and suggested the recipient donate “to make sure the headlines read correctly in 100 days.” LOL

Traditional Christian values AND today’s news

    In 2008, Macomb County, Mich., ordered John Satawa to remove a seasonal Nativity display that his family had maintained since 1945.
    From 1945 until 2008, nobody minded. What a shocker … the government tried to stop it only after a protest was received from the Freedom From Religion Foundation.
    A federal judge upheld the county’s decision to ban the display, but 6th Circuit appellate judges just reversed that decision, saying it violated both free-speech and equal protection.

    Barack Obama has done more to advance the cause of alternative sexual lifestyles in the United States than any other president.
    His Department of Justice has decided not to defend the Defense of Marriage Act, which currently is the law of the land.
    Obama has declared special days and events to recognize alternative sexual lifestyles.
    He’s appointed probably more individuals choosing those lifestyles to public office than any other president.
    He’s allowed homosexuals to serve openly in the U.S. military.
    But at today’s daily news briefing at the White House, Obama PR spokesman Carney refused to answer repeated questions from multiple reporters about where Obama stands on polygamy.
    The questions were sparked by a long article in Time magazine about polygamy, titled “I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do” and featuring the story of Alina, Valeria and Vicki, the “three wives of Joe Darger” in Utah. The article portrays polygamy as having a “rising cultural profile” and says that “once-secretive plural families” are beginning to fight for recognition, much as homosexuals have done over the past decades.

    Mike Huckabee wrote on Facebook. “Let’s affirm a business that operates on Christian principles and whose executives are willing to take a stand for the godly values we espouse by simply showing up and eating at Chick fil-A on Wednesday, August 1.”
    Some 600,000 people signed up to celebrate Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day and reports are the restaurants were packed.
    In Staurt, Florida, the parking lot was overflowing and cars were wrapped around the building waiting to reach the drive-up window. There were extra attendants outside on foot taking people’s orders before they even got near the window.
    In Des Moines, Iowa, there were 300 customers in line at noon. One family said they drove nearly 2 hours to come for lunch.
    In Mesa, Arizona, the lines reportedly were so long, it was taking 30 minutes to get a meal. Another Arizona franchise needed police help with traffic control.
    In Oklahoma, people patiently stood in line for an hour despite 100 plus degree temperatures.
    Chick-fil-A itself did not affiliate itself with the buycott and is refusing to release customer and sales figures for Aug 1.

New Mascot Announcement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The newly redeployeds called to tell us they are PREGNANT!!!! WOOHOOOOOOOOOO!!

When they were deployed, I dressed two little stuffed monkeys in tropical gear, photographed them with the surfboard frig magnet they got us on their Hawaiian honeymoon and photoshopped the graphic above. Then we sent a print and the opposite gender monkey to each of them. (We kept the magnet.)

I asked the new mama about a mascot nickname for PN and she said, “Baby Monkey, of course!” Duh me! Of course! LOL Which makes them Mama and Daddy Monkey. 🙂
