May 17: Jobs Done

Rasmussen: -13: 46/53
Today I stayed home all day. The gutter guy came. On Saturday he had food poisoning, though he could have actually used the phone, I think. Anyway, he and his crew did a nice job. Also, my shade guy came and put the fourth bracket in and more screws in the brackets. We think the shade will stay in place now.

More racist, anti-patriotic, links:
China?? Of all people.
It doesn’t make the Obama administration sound “mature” to call Arizona racist for tasking its law enforcement agencies with enforcing the law. It makes them look illiterate, closed-minded, and weak. Maybe Posner should focus on China’s long record of oppression, slave labor, political executions, and heavy-handed censorship — and join Arizona in demanding that the federal government start enforcing the laws that have existed for decades on immigration.
The idea of State voluntarily introducing Arizona’s law into a discussion of human rights abuses with China may well be the single lowest moment on foreign policy that the administration’s had since The One was sworn in.
Holder is profiling!
Has there ever been a more inept and reprehensible administration in our national history? PBHO manages to find the biggest cranks and fools to fill his staff, and these are the people who want to manage our healthcare and protect us from foreign enemies?

Clinton’s AG Janet Reno was dangerous. Holder, in comparison, is merely incompetent. Usually I would say the incompetent one would cause us less damage, but unfortunately the stakes are too high, as evidenced by the recent bombing attempt in NYC. Ugh, you know things are bad when I’m pining for the Clinton administration!

rather than trying to politely explain the virtues of the law, they’d better start thinking about reciprocal boycotts. Take a piece of California’s ass economically and let state officials over there deal with the headaches of their own business leaders. And at some point, some high-profile Arizona pol really should call the bluff of sanctuary cities by offering to release captured illegals into their custody in lieu of deporting them. If Gavin Newsom and Mike Bloomberg and Antonio Villaraigosa are all so hot to welcome the “undocumented,” fantastic: Arizona’s got an endless supply and will be happy to provide however many to San Francisco and New York and L.A. that they’d like.
Well, if I hadn't already been boycotting San Francisco as much as possible because of their anti-military stance, I'd be boycotting them now. Which makes the upcoming Impressionist exhibits, which I would really like to see, a hard decision.
We're so screwed.
Russell, on Survivor, is really as nasty as portrayed, apparently.
Iran Outmaneuvered us.
You'd think they'd pick some of Cardinal Newman's own work.
Middle East Democracy Advocates Fed Up with Obama , JENNIFER RUBIN -
Really, who has better claim to being the president of hope and change in the Middle East — the one who liberated Iraq from tyranny and pledged to do the same for Afghanistan, harped on democracy, and refused the entreaties of dictators to shove human rights under the bus, or the one who can’t manage to utter a syllable of criticism of child brides, honor killings, religious persecution (which an ambassador at large would presumably comment on, if Obama had appointed one), and political repression in the region’s Muslim states — and who declines to consider regime change in Iran?
Elites Hate When the People Speak.
Can we Talk? It seems suddenly the Dems are talking to Republicans and have cut down on their travel expenses. [Too little too late.]
Duh. Still more of Nancy's surprises.
Taliban Respond to Obama’s Peace Invite: “America Will Explode & America Will Burn”
Unfortunately, they might be right.
Video. I wish Chris Christie was MY Governor!
Kagan's Unique Experience.
I just love the hypocrisy….Palin is not qualified to work at 7-11 but Obama and Kagan and any other liberal that has been appointed to various jobs with zero expertise are OK.

Fausta asks "is the Obama administration the most incompetent administration evah? Or do they just strive to appear it?"
Trifecta: Emoticons for 0bama
Ah, that's why he's so mad. Though he certainly was passing the buck, when it was his administration, not that nasty George Bush's.
SHOCKER: The Health Care Reform Already Costs More than We Thought it Would. Or more than we were told it would, anyway. “Olympia Snowe’s demands to slow down the process suddenly seem a lot more reasonable. . . . We haven’t done anything yet, and we’re somehow already at least a hundred billion dollars in the hole.”
Wall Street Skips 0bama's Fund-Raiser
Hard to believe, isn't it? You get trashed on a daily basis, demonized by the socialists, the media and union goons, and there's actual surprise when you don't line up like lemmings to pony up cash for the people who hate you and want to ruin you. But look at the bright side, Democrats. You still have empty heads like Sarah Jessica Parker on your side.
The Obama administration is suffering from Greece Syndrome. The end will not be pretty. It will be local bankruptcies, broken promises to retirees, and social unrest.
Walter Cronkite was on the wrong side.
WE ARE OUT OF MONEY!!!!!
SOMEbody should quit her job, for sure.
Don't mess with my ketchup!
