Exxon Effoff

  Republicans Full of Gas

     By now we all know that the United States consumes approx. 20% of the world’s oil while our domestic production capacity sits at 2%.  We could not drill enough oil here in America to supply our own addicted demand, much less influence world oil prices.  Yet Republican presidential hopefuls continue to blame President Obama for the spike in prices at the tank.  Newt Gingrich even goes so far as to say,  if he’s elected President, gas prices will be $2.50/gallon.  Remember when John McCain said he knew where Osama Bin Laden was?  All we had to do was elect him President and he would tell us.  Well we all know where Osama is now don’t we?

     Interesting interview yesterday.  Matt Lauer of the Today Show asked about the increase in gasoline prices.  Rex Tillerson, Chairman and CEO of Exxon (the world’s largest oil company) stated: “What drove these prices up is entirely the crude oil price.  Supply and demand is fine.  So what’s led to this most recent run-up?  Obviously concerns about the rhetoric over the closing of the Strait of Hormuz and the conflicts with Iran.”  What?  Did he just say that?  Yes, yes he did.  The 1%er confirmed that Wall  St. speculators are responsible for the drastic and sudden increases in gas prices.  Not President Obama.  So sorry Republicans, I guess it’s back to the drawing board!

Orlistat! Gingrich Loses Weight

Breaking NewsNewt denies Oily Taint

      Having easy access to laughing gas is not a good thing.  With renewed urgency, California attorney Orly Taitz continued to beat her dead horse.  At a Gingrich campaign event in Pasadena California, the leader of the birther movement appealed to fading Presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich to adopt her flailing cause.  “Somebody who wouldn’t be good enough, who wouldn’t be certified to pick tomatoes or clean bathrooms is sitting in the White House.” she emphatically stated.  Not willing to take on the added weight of the birther fantasy, Gingrich said, “That’s a project you should pursue.  I have enough issues to debate Obama about.”

     Oh Newt.  Such the politician.  He once again skillfully played both sides of the fence.  He of course recognizes the futility of the birther movement and the damage it might do if he were to openly embrace it.  Be assured, he also knows there is a following for the nonsensical movement, so, as he has done from the beginning, he disrespectfully refers to the President as “Obama”, subliminally confirming and reinforcing the talking point that the President is not “the President” and he too questions his legitimacy.   Oh Newt.

The Norquist Quest Continues…

Operation: Usurp

President Grover Glenn Norquist. The man, the myth, the fact, the fiction.  Instead of striving to achieve the perfection of the vision of our forefathers – a life espoused by the the Constitution, Grover Norquist appears intent upon morphing it, changing the country into a mutated version of his own creation.   Like a dog with a bone, he won’t let go.  His apparent contempt for the Constitution fuels his end run around it.  Why run for office when through lies, manipulation, bribery, blackmail, race-baiting, intimidation and cleverly planted puppets, you can force your personal agenda upon an entire country?

Can we get this man his own country?  On the moon perhaps?  Newt Gingrich will never be President of the United States but,  hmmm…

The Maine Event

and the Winner is…

     In this corner, Newt Gingrich – Gingrich… in this corner Rick Santorum – Santorum in the corner everybody – somebody get a mop… and in this corner, racist Ron Paul – Racist Ron everybody…  and in this corner… the $57,000/hour man Mitt Romney.  Yes, the cage match continues…

“Tired of the Obama extreme agenda” and “excited to cast the first vote against it”, Maine caucus goers helped “severe conservative” Mitt Romney deliver a knockout punch today.  The golden-gloved one delivered the 1-2 to his opponents with a 39% victory topping Ron Paul’s 36%, Rick Santorum’s 18% and Newt Gingrich’s 6%.

One step closer to being chin-checked by Barack Obama.

Rom-kneed in the Newts

WHUT ?!!

Is Newt Moot? -or- Super Pacs Pack Powerful Punch

  In case you haven’t heard, Mitt Romney won the Republican primary in Florida today. Romney-47%/ Gingrich-31%/ Santorum-13%/ Paul-7%. “Carpet-bombing” is what Newt Gingrich called it.  92% of the ads run in Florida were negative.  $30 million worth. Democrats are loving it!  Next stop Nevada.  I wonder if the candidates will play fair in Las Vegas?  What are the odds?

Iowa Decides on the Decider

  In Iowa its Willie Geist

     Still way too early to call, Iowa Republicans are currently voting on who is to represent them in the 2012 Presidential election.  Each uniquely flawed, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, and Rick Santorum (google it), seem to be the favorites – with Newt Gingrich hanging on.

       Whoever wins this contest may be a hard pill to swallow for the Republican Party.  Kool-aide anyone?

Newt Gingrich wants Clarence Thomas Arrested

                                                    Lynch Arrest Him!

      Newt Gingrich’s poll numbers have plummeted in Iowa.  Due to the constant barrage of negative ads from racist Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, and his Super Pac: Restore Our Future, the professor finds himself in third place behind Paul and Romney (1st and 2nd respectively).  In an angry statement Gingrich exacerbated, “They ought to be ashamed of themselves!  Take this junk off the air! Don’t hide behind some baloney about not having control over them!”  Newt also mentioned that the Super Pac Restore Our Future is run by 5 of Mitt Romney’s friends.

Now, let’s get this straight.  Newt Gingrich doesn’t like Super Pacs being used against him.  Therefore he doesn’t agree with the Supreme Court decision Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission; making corporations people, where money equals speech.  Just recently he said, “Activist judges should be thrown out.  They should be called before Congress to explain their decisions.”  And like a good Republican, he took it one step further.  He stated that any judge who was uncooperative should be arrested by the Federal Marshals  and forced to appear.  In this country, what are the odds Uncle Thomas would be the first to go?  One down, four to go Newt?  … Newt?

Sir Isaac Newt on…

    Activist Judges

     Professor Newt Gingrich thinks “Judges who have ruled in favor of gay marriages or against prayer in schools are ‘activists’ who should be thrown out.  They should be called before Congress to explain their decisions” (a process Newt himself is familiar with).  He spoke of the precedent set by Thomas Jefferson in 1802 when he abolished 3 Federal courts.

     That may be true, but in Newt’s world, in an effort to keep their jobs, wouldn’t  judges end up making decisions based on what they believe a particular Congress and/or  President’s ideologies are, instead of based on the judges’ own interpretation of the law?    Funny, the Newtster never mentions the activist majority on the Supreme Court; reversing 100 years of precedent and decreeing corporations people.

Over Before it Began?

Old Dog, Old Tricks

Here we go again.  Newt Gingrich received $1.6 million from Freddie Mac (the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp.) for services as, per Newt, historian.  He denies ever lobbying for the group.  Per Freddie Mac, he was to “build Republican support in the House of Representatives”.  Sounds like lobbying to me.

In New Hampshire last month, Newt said, “Democrats with ties to Freddie Mac should be thrown in jail!” – lucky for Newt he’s a Republican.

Once again, what Republicans seem to conveniently forget is that they were in charge; responsible for Freddie and Fannie at the time of the collapse. Yet somehow, magically, it was the Democrats’ fault.
