Andrew Sullivan Just Jumped The Sharks… ALL OF THEM!

Two names that should NEVER be compared as being anywhere similar in leadership abilities – Thatcher and Pelosi!   Oh sure, the “rhetorical style could easily have come out of Maggie’s mouth” as Andrew says. But style is easily copied; I do it here all the time. And lets face it, Pelosi is not exactly known for being a very competent “rhetorical stylist” when it comes to verbal skills. Either she got lucky here, or she got a better speech writer. Either way, one thing is for sure – Thatcher was a competent and dynamic leader. Pelosi has demonstrated herself to be anything but. If this WAS Thatcher, health care reform would have passed a month before the original deadline. Pelosi is definitely no Thatcher!

Seeking to quell the controversy over his Wednesday comments on the recent Supreme Court decision, President Barack Obama made a surprise visit to the White House briefing room this afternoon.

“I unfortunately gave an impression that I was maligning the Supreme Court or Justice Kennedy specifically, and I could have calibrated those words differently,” Obama told reporters.

At his primetime State Of The Union address Wednesday, Obama said the Supreme Court acted stupidly regarding the Citizen United vs the FEC,  and the decision will “open the floodgates” of spending for corporations and foreign companies and other special interests in reversing a century. One Supreme Court justice, Samual Alito, shook his head as if to say the court acted appropriately.

UPDATE 4:06 p.m.: In a statement, the White House said Obama spoke with Justice Kennedy this afternoon at 3:15 p.m. “They had a positive discussion during which the president told Kennedy about his call with Judge Alito and statement to the media,” reads the statement. Obama has invited Kennedy, Alito and the other Supreme Court justices  to a meeting at the White House for a beer summit “in the near future.”

Tea Party Convention…. FAIL! / UPDATE

For a movement that is supposed to be based on the idea of being  fiscally frugal, I’m not sure that charging double what the other political conventions charge, and filing as a for-profit corporation, and barring news organizations that are not in your pocket ideologically, sends the right message. I’m not accusing anyone of doing anything wrong, it just doesn’t  look good. Sooner or later, this Tea Party movement is going to develop into a true political party, and these actions will come back to bite them.

UPDATE:   Well, that didn’t take long.

President VS The Supreme Court

Yes He Did!.  Your big government policies weren’t a bad start, but dude, if this is the way you really feel; if you really don’t like the make-up of the Supreme Court and want to further emulate FDR, you gotta try and expand it by a few seats. That’ll fix this right up!

PS. If the floodgates to the Sacramento Delta were as closed as the floodgates of special interest money in Washington, the West Side farmers would be complaining about the flooding last year instead of the government created drought.
