Cain at CPAC – not racist or shameless

Thanks to Unedited Politics for posting Herman Cain’s speech today at CPAC.

not racist, not shameless

the fact is, we don’t need a Hoyer

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D, Maryland) says you don’t need a budget. Oh yes, it’s right there in black and white over at

“What does the budget do? The budget does one thing and really only one thing: It sets the parameters of spending and discretionary caps. Other than that, the Appropriations committee are not bound by the Budget committee’s priorities.”

don't wag your finger at me, sir (AP Photo)

“The fact is, you don’t need a budget. We can adopt appropriations bills. We can adopt authorization policies without a budget. We already have an agreed-upon cap on spending.”

Future generations? Hyper-inflation? Hoyer’s honor? Any sense of decency whatsoever? Duty to country? Steny Hoyer has no need for such outdated concerns. (You got something to say about it?  Didn’t think so.)  Brazen impunity is more his style. What a jerk.

dramatic dependency rise, wrong answer

tmsmiffs dug up an infuriating individual liberty nugget: More Proof of the Dependency Agenda.  The opening paragraph of the IBD article he links to is staggering:

“The American public’s dependence on the federal government shot up 23% in just two years under President Obama, with 67 million now relying on some federal program”

not Mitt’s moment

Romney congratulated Rick Santorum on his good day.  He quickly changed the subject to Obama.  Standard fare, to be expected from a politician who wants to put a day’s big losses behind him.  But why did he willingly adopt Obama’s vapid style, and even his 2008 language?

he even dipped from the "hope" well in this speech

“This is a moment in time when our country is crying out for fundamental change and reform.”

C’mon, Mitt! This is our moment … for change? And you’re the slam dunk frontrunner who’s going to lead the GOP to victory over Obama? We didn’t buy this rot from Obama even before we grew mind numbingly sick of listening to it!

I solemnly swear to ignore my oath

According to the Supreme Court website, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg took two oaths on August 10, 1993.  First, the Constitutional Oath:

“I, [Ruth Bader Ginsburg], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter.  So help me God.”

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States

Death by asphyxiation? No thanks.

Jen Kuznicki wrote a great article today challenging Ann Coulter.

“So, if we are just to blame Democrats, and suggest that Republicans are trying with all their hearts to loosen the choke-hold, we will surely still die of asphyxiation.” ~Jen Kuznicki (@jen5309)

I’ve got close friends who’ve convinced me that Krav Maga teaches some excellent choke hold counterattacks. I’d prefer a Krav-styled response to statism over Ann’s chosen approach.

let's borrow a page from Krav Maga

Mitt salts the fields

If Mitt’s so darned electable (I’m not buying it), then why did he need to resort to this in Florida?

“[Mitt] had no reason to ask for folks to vote for him, and thus he did not invest much to do so.  The scorched earth of Florida will in no way, shape or form resemble any other state let alone the General Election.  The carpet bombing of Iowa and Florida would simply cost way too much money to duplicate nationally.” ~C. Edmund Wright, on American Thinker

Congratulations on your win last night in Florida, Mitt.  And please accept my November condolences in advance if we’re fool enough to pick you as our GOP nominee.

(Thanks also to C. Edmund Wright for the idea on the title to this post.)
