Obama’s speech tonight: He’ll blame GOP in Congress for not taking steps on the economy, but the facts don’t lie #tcot


Obama is using his great “oratory” tonight to bring us his introduction to Porkulus II!

So when you hear Obama say tonight that “Congress”, aka “Republicans, need to focus on jobs, please remember the facts of this simple chart.

From HotAir.com:

You know how Obama repeatedly says Congress could take steps “right now” to jumpstart the economy again? Let’s amend that statement for accuracy: The Senate and the president could take steps right now to jumpstart the economy again. That is, they actually have House bills in front of them.

So that pretty much will neuter Obama’s attempts tonight to blame Republicans in Congress for no “jobs plan”.

Remembering 9-11: Just released 9/11 air traffic controller tapes

You can listen to the just released 9-11 air traffic controller tapes.

They bring back a few memories of the day, but always worth remembering the events and people of that day!

From KRMG.com:

1 ** Peter Zalewski, a Boston controller can’t reach American Airlines flight 11.

2 ** Flight attendant Betty Ong is on-board flight 11. She calls AA reservations from a seatback phone on the plane.

3 ** Controllers hear one of the hijackers aboard AA flight 11.

4 ** Controllers realize they have lost AA flight 11.

5 ** Air controllers are watching as the second plane, United 175, hits the tower.

6 ** Controllers are talking to United 93 when there is a commotion in the cockpit.

7 ** Officials now realize United 93 has crashed.

8 ** Permission is given to shoot down commercial aircraft if needed.

Newt rightfully hits back at the moderators and Ron Paul makes a little sense in Reagan GOP debate


Last night at the Republican debate at the Reagan Presidential Library two candidates had the best “sound bite” points of the night.

No, it wasn’t Rick Perry or Mitt Romney.

Oddly enough, it was two of the least likely candidates to win the nomination — Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul.

First, from Newt Gingrich, a forceful and accurate takedown of the media, Brian Williams-MSNBC, John Harris of Politico, and their biased questioning:

While honest debate and questioning is what debates are made of….I thought Newt was spot on in pointing out the methods used by the left-wing moderators in an effort to create the appearance of MAJOR differences between candidates where there may not be any.

From HotAir:

Greg Hengler (Townhall.com) brings us the clip from last night’s debate where Gingrich rips into NBC’s Brian Williams and Politico’s John Harris for their attempts to create rhetorical mountains out of insubstantial molehills of differences in the policy positions between the GOP candidates, declaring himself uninterested in “puffing up” attempts to make Republicans fight each other in order to take the focus off of Barack Obama.

And Ron Paul, as it turns out, had the the last words of last nights debate…and it was one of the best rants he has made.  While discussing welfare, he spoke about the fact that it is wrong to assume that those who love and strive for liberty are not compassionate or caring.  And he made it clear that government is not the only entity that can effectively tackle the issue of the poor and welfare.

On this video, skip over to about the 11:54 mark and to hear the remark I am referring to.

Ron Paul is not the most articulate of the contenders, and often he is flat out wrong, but I give him his due on this one!
