Cut, Cap and Balance passed in the House, last night, so the ball should be in the Dems’ court, but a “gang” in the Senate (which includes Republicans) is currently negotiating a grand “compromise” which cuts some spending, someday, maybe, and includes massive tax hikes. Some compromise.
@#$% – you very much, Senate Republicans.
Chris Christie comments on the budget talks:
“I think it’s incumbent upon the President to put a plan out there”…
“The executive has an obligation to lead.”
Boston Herald: Prez’s vacation makes little $ense right now:
…a new Marist Poll says that for the first time ever a majority of American adults — 55 percent — will not be booking a summer vacation this year. They’re too worried about jobs and money. The “Staycation” of 2009 has morphed into the “Naycation” of 2011.
But Obama, who’s got us panicked over this debt-ceiling stalemate, will soon be off — again — to Blue Heron Farm, Martha’s Vineyard. Check out the pictures of this “farm” online. You practically drool. It looks like the centerfold of “Town & Country,” the magazine for aspiring zillionaires.
But unless Obama fixes this fiscal disaster — now — he can’t go. He should have a staycay like the rest of us.
Instead, he’ll be looking at 28 acres on the water from a pristine white Victorian farm house handsomely appointed with Restoration Hardware-style chairs and tables on an elegant patio. There’s also a reconstructed Pennsylvania hay barn dating back to the 1800s and a boat house for the Boston Whalers and catamarans to cruise Tisbury Great Pond. Plus a golf green and pool and flower gardens, vegetable gardens and apple orchard — not a droopy leaf in site. And don’t forget the basketball court.
Let’s call it a Barack-acation.

Bizzy Blog: Couldn’t Have Said It Better Myself:
So I’ll let the person who sent the following to the NewsBusters email box do the talking (bolds are mine):
With Fast and Furious the Obama Administration is effectively a state sponsor of terrorism. This is a scandal of epic proportions. It includes coverups to the highest levels of government and involves the death of federal employees. In short this is Watergate on a steroids/crack cocktail. We continue to be told the media is out for controversy. What could be more controversial?
Meanwhile, a media mogul has some of his employees in one country performing some potentially illegal acts. But THIS guy owns Fox News.
So which is getting more stories and minutes devoted to it in American news, the President or Attorney General giving guns to drug cartels to kill Americans so as to attack a Constitutional Amendment, or some phone hacking and bribes by a media branch in England?
Few things are a better sign of undeniable bias.

Last week, I published The Ever-Expanding Catalogue of Obamacare Fables.
This week, MRCTV and BreitbartTV bring you an excellent and handy video of Obama’s favorite health care takeover tall tales in his own words.
All it needs is an “Unhappily Ever After” end page.

Hard and fast rule — whenever Obama says, “true story”, understand that he is about to lie to your face. Corollary to that rule: Whenever Obama opens his mouth, understand that he is about to lie to your face.
Another hard and fast rule: “Never trust a source as cited by Rachel Maddow.”

Right after the Fourth of July, I broke the story of Natalie Nichols, a newly elected county clerk in Texas, who questioned a rogue court that actually voted to remove the Pledge of Allegiance and an opening prayer from the court’s official records. She refused to do it, and made it her official stance. She now faces charges.
Natalie’s husband told me, “Is this what we are to now expect when we dare take a stand? A public official, no doubt? Retribution for some trumpted-up mess? Prayers, please! Right now, she is alone in this here.”
Time for Texans to rally around this brave woman.
