Hump Day Insanity: ‘The Kind of Madness We Haven’t Seen in a Long Time…’

spending

They say it's not the fall that kills you ... It's the sudden stop at the end. Take some Dramamine because I believe we are about to hit Barack bottom.

What the democrats and the liberal/leftist MSM in this country has not been able to do to destroy the GOP, the GOP has been able to self-inflict...

HotAir: "Ron Johnson: If Boehner agrees to tax hikes as part of a sequester deal, he’s finished"

Politico: "Senate GOP ponders ceding power to President Obama"

Weasel Zippers: "Leadership In Action: Obama Says He Doesn’t Want Power To Implement Sequester Cuts As He Sees Fit"

C.O.W.A.R.D.

And yet, the growing evidence of the unhinged democrats mounts right in front of the eyes of the blinking American people...

Ahead of the much hyped 'sequestration' the Obama administration has opened the doors and released several hundred illegal aliens from deportation centers. However, in true Obama Lead From Behind form, Obama agrees to meet with the GOP a day after the scheduled sequestration goes into effect. As usual the MSM is carrying Obama's water in this impression that police and firefighters and teachers (all locally funded, not federally) will be cut. The fact is, Obama is in full control of what federal programs/agencies can (and should) be cut under sequester. However, he choses the political path of stabbing our military in the back instead of defunding dumb-assed research programs (see: shrimp on treadmills, etc.) and redundancies of redundancies within the federal government.

Yeah, it pisses me off too that when I open my mailbox and there are bills in there. But let's NOT look at the fact the democrats in the US Senate have FAILED to pass a budget in over 1,400 days. The democrats have completely left behind all reality, and are now fighting to force the rest of us to join them in their rancid bubble-headedness...

The DC: "House Democrats propose Department of Peacebuilding"

THIS, just as the administration, under the new leadership of Secretary of State John Kerry, is considering direct aid to the Syrian rebels.

McCarthy says under the cover of something else the Obama admin. will release the “Blind Sheikh” (to Morsi in Egypt), there will be roughly 3 days of outrage, and then attention will move on to something else.

Bonus:

As usual, NONE of this crap would be getting past the bulk of the at least semi-intelligent American people if it were not for their own laziness, and their willingness to be manipulated by the American MSM.

Not to be outdone by the creative editing staff of MSNBC/NBC, ABC edits a Michelle Obama interview, and then lamely defends it. The network claims the edit was made solely for time ... It was less than 2 seconds. Instead, what was edited out was a gaffe no republican First Lady would have gotten away with, or would have a network editing out, but highlighting.

First Lady Michelle Obama during a Tuesday broadcast of ABC’s “Good Morning America” claimed that 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton, who had just returned from performing in the president’s second inauguration, was tragically shot and killed in Chicago by an “automatic weapon.”

“She was standing out in a park with her friends in a neighborhood blocks away from where my kids…grew up, where our house is. She had just taken a chemistry test,” the First Lady said, according to ABC News’ website. “And she was caught in the line of fire because some kids had some automatic weapons they didn’t need [emphasis added].”

“I just don’t want to keep disappointing our kids in this country. I want them to know that we put them first,” she added.

However, contrary to the First Lady’s claim, authorities believe Pendleton’s accused attacked used a semi-automatic handgun and say he shot into the crowd “at least six times” before “fleeing in a waiting car,” the Associated Press reports.

“It is extremely unlikely that the murder weapon was an automatic handgun, an extremely rare occurrence, even in the streets of Chicago,” the Washington Examiner notes. “An overwhelming majority of handguns bought and sold in America are semi-automatic.”

Perhaps Mrs. Obama simply misspoke. Perhaps she confused the two (not a damnable offense if you’re unfamiliar with firearms).

Something that came across my Facebook news feed that puts this selective editing control of the MSM into proper perspective (you can substitute any sort of news photo in this display ... NBC/MSNBC does as show below):

A few years ago at a townhall TEA Party event against Obamacare, this man arrived with his legally carried firearm. But MSNBC chose to crop the picture in order to bolster their "racist" narrative of the TEA Party...
