Exceptionalism

Ouch. Painful, but apparently true. From Ace of Spades HQ:


Obama’s creed always held that America wasn’t an exceptional nation. To their great discredit, the country proved him ultimately right.

Lobbyism

Dave Blount over at Moonbattery has a great quote:


There would be no need for lobbyists if the government hadn’t bloated into an oppressive obscenity. When this was a free country, it made much more sense for companies to devote their resources to developing more competitive products rather than to bribing the thugs in Washington to break the other guy’s legs instead of theirs. Lobbyists are only a symptom; the disease is authoritarian statism.

Ain’t that the truth?

Unequal Pandering

The Jawa Report lands a torpedo under the stacks regarding President Obama weighing in on the Zimmerman/Martin incident in Florida:


Obama said he supported the investigations, noting: “If I had son, he’d look like Trayvon.”

[A White House Mouthpiece] said Obama “was speaking powerfully about this as a parent.” [He] added that “no matter gender or race, this is a tragedy.”


That does make sense. It was very similar to comments President Obama made about Allen Coon, the white 13-year-old who was set on fire by two black classmates [On Feb 28, 2012 -- Strat]. Obama said then, “If I had a son, he’d look like Allen.”

Oh wait, Obama didn’t say anything about Allen. My bad.
