Obama caotures bin Laden with help from Seak Team 6

Seal Team 6 - World Police


But Vice President Joe Biden made an effort to share the credit Tuesday as he was offering the
 Y'know, Dubya's "Mission Accomplished" stroll across the deck of CVN-72 in his nomex poopie suit may have made for an easy target for pundits to mock, but at least he flew the plane a little bit on the way there. -Tam

crowd a list of the administration's accomplishments. 

    "The man here pointed out, 'we also got bin Laden,'" Biden said. "Let me correct that. The president of the United States and the special forces got bin Laden."

More [View from the Porch] - this cracked me up, obviouisly.  Gawd I'm glad Obama's not dumping Biden; this is going to be so much fun  (knock on wood).

Romney's Horse

Res Ipsa Loquitor

So the Romneys are selfish for keeping a horse?

And employing a groom with a family to support.

And paying for feed that’s sold by someone with a family to support

And  transported in trucks by someone with a family to support

And manufactured in a factory by people with families to support

And made from stuff that’s grown by farmers with families to support.

And having a barn built by construction workers with families to support with  materials trucked by drivers with families to support

And made with materials from factories with workers with families to support.

Sounds to me like Mitt Romney's one horse has already done more to
put Americans to work, than that horse’s ass in the White House.

Chicago Mafia v Arkansas Mafia

I lay 12 to 5 odds that by tonight Hillary will be Obummer's running mate.  Unless she calculates that Obummer is so deeply damaged that she could only destroy her 2016 chance.  If she does run, and should the ticket win ... I wonder what Clinton enforcer Buddy Young is up to there days? Bill would know.

An Apt Metaphor

Oh Bummer!?!

Pro-Mitt Argument of the Day (REDUX)

I’d just ask you to keep four things in mind:
  1. Justice Scalia just turned 78,
  2. Justice Kennedy will turn 78 later this year,
  3. Justice Breyer will be 76 in August,
  4. and Justice Ginsburg turned 81 about a week ago.
Justice Eric HolderIn addition, Justice Ginsburg has Pancreatic Cancer. Justice Stephens has already said he would retire and is just waiting for Obama to be reelected. The next president could appoint as many as 4 new Justices over next 8 years. This election is about more than ObamaCare Tax.
We wish them all well, of course, but the brute fact is that whoever we elect as president in November is almost certainly going to choose at least one and maybe more new members of the Supreme Court — in addition to hundreds of other life-tenured federal judges, all of whom will be making momentous decisions about our lives for decades to come. If you don’t think it matters whether the guy making those calls is Mitt Romney or Barack Obama, I think you’re smokin’ something funky.

Which brings us back to Colonel Travis’s point. The Supremes are about to hear the huge health-care case. How worried would you be about it if we had a Supreme Court whose last two justices, instead of being Sotomayor and Kagan, had been chosen by a guy getting advice from Bob Bork — by a guy beholden to the same conservatives whose near-mutiny forced President Bush to appoint Justice Sam Alito?

That, from a March 23 NRO column, resonates more now than ever. BTW, cuzzin ricky added a fifth reason to keep in mind— Justice Eric Holder. But, even if Romney is elected with landslide numbers, and Republicans take the Senate, there's still reason to worry.  Ginsburg has already survived pancreatic cancer longer than any human in history, and Stephens could very likely resign Wednesday, November 7, giving Obummer  the opprtunity to remake the court in his image.  Oh, bummer.

Shades of Mad Man Muntz - without the Savvy

Back in the late ‘90s, when tech stocks were flying high, JDS Uniphase capped out at $1,227 a share, giving it a bigger market cap than both Cisco Systems and Intel  have today. But then the bubble burst, taking JDSU down 99.8% and changing its name on Wall Street from “Just Don’t Sell Us” to “Just Don’t Sue Us.” [The Curious Case of JDS Uniphase]

I picked this JDSU item because, for me, it defines CNBC's Jim Cramer. He   appeared regularly on Fox & Friends back then.  I can still hear him touting "Just Don’t Sell Us" like he was getting a commission on it (ahem).  Then—

Jim Cramer endorsed,  and proudly voted for Obummer in 2008. Then—

 In 2009 he appeared on the Daily Show,  groveling before smarmy host Jon Stewart— then on a rant about CNBC's Rick Santelli's Teaparty founding rant (about Obama's carelessness with taxpayer money).  Kramer wagged his tail and agreed that Santelli acted foolishly, and he thought it scandalous..

It's fair then to say that Jim Kramer would be welcome at any Obama White House dinner, Oui?  So, shades of  Erskine Bowles: segue 2007

"[W]hile he hasn’t talked a lot about his thoughts on this year’s presidential election, [Cramer did lay out the case for Romney during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Hardball” on June 1, 2007. 'Can I just tell you something right now — I interviewed with Romney,' Cramer said. 'He tried to hire me in 1984. Why do people now say well, ‘I don’t want to have a Mormon as president?’ I never even thought of him as a Mormon. He is like the best businessman in North America. And that is how you should think of him.'"  [DC]
