Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Oh, the humanity.

I sincerely hope this story gets out … perhaps via the mainstream media itself? Is it too much to hope for? That Gwen Ifill feels she was disrespected in her journalistic greatness?

Because what little else we know about John Q. Public, we can be certain that John Q. will wholeheartedly relish the notion that Sarah Barracuda made the PBS “journalist” feel put out.

Testify, Gwen, shout it from the rooftops.

Thanks, Sarah.

“Some of his comments that he has made about the war that I think may — in my world– disqualifies someone from consideration as the next commander in chief.”

Your turn to speak up, how about on this topic, John.

I don’t agree with all the choices, and neither does the Rifleman, but it’s a cool slide show.

Here, straight from the mouth of Товарщ Биден, we have one of the basic fallacies of modern socialism:

We’re going to focus on the middle class, because it’s — when the middle class is growing, the economy grows and everybody does well….

And later, repeating himself:

 The economic engine of America is middle class. It’s the people listening to this broadcast. When you do well, America does well. Even the wealthy do well.

Finally, this nugget:

The middle class is the economic engine.

As on most everything else, Товарщ Иосиф is wrong here, too.  In fact, he has it completely backward.  When the economy grows, the middle class grows, not the other way around.  It is not the people who are struggling who create jobs, but those who have money to spare.

Today, the House is expected to vote on the $700B bailout.  Where will the money come from.  Read the bill.  The fed will sell bonds to raise the money.  Who’s going to buy the bonds — the middle class?  No.  The rich are.

And that brings us to the dirty little secret — the real reason the leftists don’t want to lower taxes on the wealthy.  If the marginal rates on the wealthy are reduced, the value of the fed’s tax-exempt bonds are reduced, and the fed has to pay a higher interest rate on them to attract buyers.

Here is Senator Иосиф Биден making excuses for not convicting President Билл Клинтон:

Our job is not to dissect the motives or even the tactics of Ken Starr, the trial lawyers, Linda Tripp, and others. Our only job is to determine whether the President of the United States by his conduct committed the specific acts alleged in the two Articles of Impeachment. Not generally, but specifically: Did he do what is alleged? And if he did, do these actions rise to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors necessary to justify the most obviously anti-democratic act the Senate can engage in–overturning an election by convicting the President.

Wrong, Товарищ Биден, your job consisted only of determining “Did he do what is alleged?”  It is the job of the House of Representatives to answer the question, “do these actions rise to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors?”

No wonder so many unconstitutional programs are foisted on us by the Democrat Party.  They neither know nor care what the Constitution says.

Here is Иосиф Биден on the role of the Vice President:

Vice President Cheney has been the most dangerous vice president we’ve had probably in American history. The idea he doesn’t realize that Article I of the Constitution defines the role of the vice president of the United States, that’s the Executive Branch. He works in the Executive Branch. He should understand that. Everyone should understand that.

Here is what Article I actually says:

 The Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no Vote, unless they be equally divided.

Notice that this is in Article I, “The Legislative Branch,” Section 3, “The Senate.”  The role of the Vice President is defined in the section entitled “The Legislative Branch.”  The only reference to the Vice President in Article II, “The Executive Branch,” is to say when he shall act as or become President, and to say that he can be impeached.

How can he possibly be qualified to be VP, when he doesn’t even know what the job entails?

(And someone should have said that the job is not worth a bucket of warm spit.)

Terry McAuliffe, the former Democratic National Committee chairman and Clinton family confidant, plans to run for Virginia governor, FOX News has learned.

Democratic sources say McAuliffe will formally announce his bid in mid-November.
