State of the Union 2011

I'm just half way through this morose monotone speech. Obama had a moment to really leap forward here - and he has landed with a thud. Seriously - did this guy look presidential? He has a tin ear to what happened in November. What a hollow shell he is.

High speed rail? Sheesh!!!

Tucson Blame Game

The liberal media blame game that immediately commenced after Saturday's shootings of up to 20 people in a Tucson Safeway parking lot that centered around Democratic Representative Gabrielle Giffords has taken such a strataspheric tangent to reality that it has fueled a counter argument that has generated even more heat. The tragic gunning down of six lives at a politcal meeting in a shopping center by a 22-year old leftist communist nut-job has now spurred calls for a reduction in the "heat of rhetoric" that has apparently just "recently permeated our politics". Democrats and the mainstream media have blamed the Tea Party, Republicans, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck and others in creating an atmosphere which somehow spawned these attacks.

This, of course, is just pure rubbish. But it also goes to the intellectual honesty of the left - find the quickest knee-jerk explanation and that is the cause. It is laughable - but also sad. While many criticized Sarah Palin for having certain Democratic legislators in her "sites" for the mid-terms (over a year ago) they neglect that the very left wing "Daily Kos" website did the same thing.

What is even worse is the mainstream media jumping to conclusions - or let's just call it like it is - MAKING conclusions based on non-fact and their ideological view. This Newsbusters article sums it up very nicely. But shame on the media and their absolutely disgusting display of bias. In the end the shooter was a head case, pure and simple.

A Man for All Seasons

Isn't amazing how the press has already turned on Stanford Coach Jim Harbaugh? Read this trash. The guy has only been tough as nails in both his college and pro career ("Captain Comeback" when he was with the Colts as QB) to now a successful college football coach at less than a football factory like Stanford (that comes with excessive admission hurdles as well). What he has done at in Palo Alto is phenomenal. Now he has both the pros and his alma mater Michigan calling.

So what does he do? He talks to them, of course. All in individual meetings. He keeps this Monday's victorious post-Orange Bowl press conference on point about the game and dodges other questions (as does his QB Andrew Luck) . So what's a guy-in-play to do? And here we have internet reporters searching for a story making stuff up.

It appears that Harbaugh doesn't want to go "back" to Michigan (too much headache and problems there). He entertained the Dolphins because the owner is a major Michigan benefactor (and he was on the sideline at the Orange Bowl) - and he had an extensive five-hour talk with San Francisco - well because its the 49'ers, and its right up the street from Palo Alto.

What is clear to me is that Jim is now a California guy - once it gets in your blood its hard to get out. He can now stay at Stanford (now that his 2010 draft rated number 1 QB is coming back for his junior year) and make a run for a national championship - or have a great year, nonetheless (and get a handsome raise). Or go to the 49'ers - but now that Luck is staying at QB, and he's tired of all of the blah blah pro pitches, I bet he stays.

But anyway you look at it I don't think he's leaving Cali.

Read the Constitution? Bah! Humbug. Happy New Year!

As the uber liberal MSNBC cable news program channel gets ready for the new year they are discussing the ramifications of the new Republican majority in the House and how they are going to start off reiterating the benefits of the U. S. Constitution - a document that was critical to the governance and development of this nation. In this video, Washington Post writer Ezra Klein claims this founding document hard to understand "because it was written over 100 years ago". Of course that would be 1910 - not 1787 - but what's a century or two?

This is what passes as political discourse on MSNBC - note the contempt in the anchor's voice as she describes that the House may actually read the Consititution (an act that may take less time then Charley Rangel's elongated pleas for leniency in his censure hearings) aloud at the start of its first session. Read the Constitution!?? Hrmmph!

Meanwhile, enjoy this post from our friends at the much more interactive Red Eye. Happy New Year!!!
