The onerous burden of Obamacare doesn't apply to Obama's pals

Obamacare: A Uniquely Vicious Form of Corruption

If you haven't already seen it, don't miss Karl Rove's column in today's Wall Street Journal. Rove explains the vicious strategy at the heart of Obamacare: pass terrible legislation, and then collect a toll by exempting your friends--those who pay you lots of money--from that legislation, while your enemies have to live with it. We have had various forms of corruption over the years, but I don't believe we have had, within memory, anything quite this disgusting. The worst malefactor here, besides President Obama himself, is AARP...

Everyone expects the union goons to get payoffs from Obama, but it's nice to see the AARP revealed for the sleazy hustlers they actually are. The AARP is really an insurance marketing operation disguised as an old folks lobby and since they supported Obamacare, their marketing machine got exempted from a whole variety of Obamacare restrictions. Think of it as a protection racket organized by Obama and the Democrats.

GOP kills House Global Warming committee

That's change we can believe in!  One piece of foolishness down and a whole lot more to go. Someone toss Kate Sheppard of Mother Jones a crying towel and no one tell her about the tooth fairy.

Obama comes out against raising the national debt limit

Barack Obama is uncharacteristically clear:

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can't pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.

Er, hold on a sec. That was back in 2006 when luxury vacations at taxpayer expense and vast socialist programs were just a gleam in his eye.

Today's Hoot: Obama sending DHS agents to secure the Afghan border

Obama and Napolitano can't manage to secure our border, but they are sending some DHS agents to secure the Afghanistan-Pakistan border? Hey, isn't that violating the civil rights of the "undocumented migrants"? Well, if the agents actually get out in the field I only hope that they are armed with more than beanbag guns like they are back here.
