Video: New Drug Spenditol All The Rage In Washington

Especially among Democrats, I hear:

“Spenditol is Washington’s answer to all the painful problems Americans face. How to borrow $800 Billion for a Stimulus that didn’t create jobs or fix the Economy? Spenditol!”

Side effects include (government) bloating, amnesia, enlarged debt, nausea, anxiety, heart palpitations,  loose rules, and (national) suicide.

Video: Allen West Digs In – Apology To Wasserman-Schultz “Not Happening”

Good for him. He didn’t say anything in his email that wasn’t absolutely true. And the fact of the matter is, she’s the one who made it public, not him.

Fox News reported

Rep. Allen West dug in his heels after congressional Democrats called on him to apologize for a heated email he sent to the Democratic Party chairwoman, adamantly denying reports that he had already done so.

West claims he was in his right to send fellow Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz an email Tuesday calling her “vile” and “not a lady,” in response to her criticism of him on the House floor.

“Don’t poke me in the chest, that’s the bottom line,” he told Fox Business Network on Thursday, adding that an apology is “not happening.”

Democrats, of course, are trying to make political hay over the letter, hoping to paint West as some sort of anti-woman bigot because of his less than flattering words towards Wasserman-Schultz.

Weasel Zippers reports, House Dem Congresswomen Demand GOP Leadership Condemn Allen West, Accuse Him Of Sexual Harassment…

(Politico) — Several House Democratic women on Wednesday called on Rep. Allen West to apologize to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz for his e-mail that called her “vile,” “despicable” and “not a Lady.”

The lawmakers said they were sending a letter to House GOP leadership, asking them to condemn the e-mail from the freshman Florida Republican. The group of five House Democrats said West’s e-mail was indicative of a larger problem — both inside Congress and out — of gender discrimination in the workplace.

“For his own good, they ought to take him into the woodshed and say, ‘if you want to survive in this work environment, you’ve got to keep your word, you’ve got to be cordial and congenial and civil even when you’re disagreeing,” said Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.) “It makes for a very hard career otherwise.”

“Sticks and stones will not break Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz’s bones, and neither will Congressman West’s Blackberry,” added Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) who charged that in other workplaces, West would be hit with a sexual harassment claim.

There was nothing in that letter that could be construed as “sexual harassment”. He called her “vile,” “despicable” and “not a lady”. He could have just s easily called  a male colleague, “vile,” “despicable” and “not a gentleman”.  This is straight out of the Dem victim-mentality playbook.

Video: Fox News Locates Operation Fast And Furious Straw Buyers

Next Tuesday, July 26th, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform will hold a hearing entitled: Operation Fast and Furious: The Other Side of the Border.

This Tuesday’s hearing, Operation Fast and Furious: The Other Side of the Border, will feature the testimony of U.S. law enforcement officials who witnessed a different side of the controversial operation. These officials saw the steady stream of Operation Fast and Furious guns recovered at crime scenes in Mexico and were given orders from superiors not to alert Mexican authorities. Members of the Committee will also have their first opportunity to question ATF supervisors who have defended Operation Fast and Furious and the Justice Department’s decisions to committee investigators.
“The Acting Director of the ATF has told congressional investigators that the Justice Department is attempting to shift blame in Operation Fast and Furious away from its political appointees,” said Chairman Darrell Issa. “Examining the accounts of witnesses who did not participate in Operation Fast and Furious, but were nonetheless disturbed as they watched it unfold is critical to understanding the scope of this flawed program. This testimony is especially important in light of the Justice Department’s willful efforts to withhold key evidence from investigators about what occurred, who knew and who authorized this reckless operation.”

Reportedly, while publicly claiming F &F took down a major drug running operation, agents privately called it “a joke” as 19 out of 20 suspects ended up back on the streets:
