The jerk hit a girl scout (in a wheelchair!)

From NY Times here:
A man heckling First Lady Laura Bush and daughter Jenna outside the 92nd Street Y was arrested after he punched a wheelchair-bound girl whose parents has told him to shut up, authorities said yesterday. German Talis, 22, was shouting obscenities at the Bushes, who were leaving the building Tuesday, when he crossed paths with Wendy and John Lovetro and their daughter Maureen, 18, who has cerebral palsy.

They had been in the audience to hear the Bushes talk about their children's book, "Read All About It."

"He began yelling about Iraq and Iran at Jenna Bush. She was waving at the crowd. I told the guy, 'What are you doing? Shut up. This is about a child and books,' " said John Lovetro. "He was unperturbed. I said, 'Get out of here! You're being a moron!' "

The next thing he knew, Talis was allegedly punching Maureen - a fan of the first lady since meeting her in 2004.

"I heard my daughter hysterical yelling, 'He's hitting me!' " said Wendy Lovetro.

Both my daughters have learning disabilities and are girl scouts. Maureen, who has cerebral palsy and is also a girl scout. What a jerk to hit a person who can't defend her self.
Update:
The jerk who punched the girl in the wheel chair is a 9/11 Truther German Talis, 22. The witnesses who said that John Lovetro started hitting Mr. Talis and blocking him with the wheel chair are Truther's themselfs. (Dianne Lipson of NY911TRUTH). Maureen is a Girl Scout and she's been one since a Brownie. She's now a Senior Scout and follows the Girl Scout law. She was on Sean Hannity's last week telling us that Talis was hitting her first. A Girl Scout doesn't lie and one that has been a Girl Scout a long time I trust over a Truther who is spouting lies. There's your answer. (I'll defend a Girl Scout every time! And I don't think any Girl Scout would become a Truther!)

Radical Days of Bill Ayers

From NY Times article 9/11/2001 here:
"I don't regret setting bombs,'' Bill Ayers said. ''I feel we didn't do enough.'' Mr. Ayers, who spent the 1970's as a fugitive in the Weather Underground, was sitting in the kitchen of his big turn-of-the-19th-century stone house in the Hyde Park district of Chicago. The long curly locks in his Wanted poster are shorn, though he wears earrings. He still has tattooed on his neck the rainbow-and-lightning Weathermen logo that appeared on letters taking responsibility for bombings. And he still has the ebullient, ingratiating manner, the apparently intense interest in other people, that made him a charismatic figure in the radical student movement.

(HT to Hugh Hewitt)

From the New Nixon, it was Deep Throat who stopped Bill Ayers from being prosecuted. Mark Felt who was passed over for FBI director (L. Patrick Gray became the FBI director) by President Nixon. Felt had a grudge against Nixon. Thanks to you Mr. Felt, Obama has a great friend in Bill Ayers!

Thank you Holy Father


The following is a transcript of Pope Benedict XVI's remarks at ground zero:

O God of love, compassion, and healing,
look on us, people of many different faiths and traditions,
who gather today at this site,
the scene of incredible violence and pain.

We ask you in your goodness
to give eternal light and peace
to all who died here --
the heroic first-responders:
our fire fighters, police officers,
emergency service workers, and Port Authority personnel,
along with all the innocent men and women
who were victims of this tragedy
simply because their work or service
brought them here on September 11, 2001.


We ask you, in your compassion
to bring healing to those
who, because of their presence here that day,
suffer from injuries and illness.
Heal, too, the pain of still-grieving families
and all who lost loved ones in this tragedy.
Give them strength to continue their lives with courage and hope.

We are mindful as well
of those who suffered death, injury, and loss
on the same day at the Pentagon and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
Our hearts are one with theirs
as our prayer embraces their pain and suffering.


God of peace, bring your peace to our violent world:
peace in the hearts of all men and women
and peace among the nations of the earth.
Turn to your way of love
those whose hearts and minds
are consumed with hatred.


God of understanding,
overwhelmed by the magnitude of this tragedy,
we seek your light and guidance
as we confront such terrible events.
Grant that those whose lives were spared
may live so that the lives lost here
may not have been lost in vain.
Comfort and console us,
strengthen us in hope,
and give us the wisdom and courage
to work tirelessly for a world
where true peace and love reign
among nations and in the hearts of all.

Marx and Obama on Religion

From Bill Kristol's article here:

Marx said this:

“Religious suffering is at the same time an expression of real suffering and a protest against real suffering. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the sentiment of a heartless world, and the soul of a soulless condition. It is the opium of the people.”


Obama said this:
"And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations".

Stick to your Guns!

To Obama (Losing my Religon)


Life is bigger It's bigger than you
And you are not me
The lengths that I will go to
The distance in your eyes
Oh no I've said too much
I set it up

That's me in the corner
That's me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don't know if I can do it
Oh no I've said too much
I haven't said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

Every whisper
Of every waking hour I'm
Choosing my confessions
Trying to keep an eye on you
Like a hurt lost and blinded fool
Oh no I've said too much
I set it up

Consider this, consider this
The hint of the century
Consider this
The slip that brought me
To my knees failed
What if all these fantasies
Come flailing around
Now I've said too much


I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

But that was just a dream
That was just a dream

From R.E.M. site here.
Shinny, Happy Obamakins!

Michael Yon's WSJ article

We know now that we can pull off a successful counterinsurgency in Iraq. We know that we are working with an increasingly willing citizenry. But counterinsurgency, like community policing, requires lots of boots on the ground. You can't do it from inside a jet or a tank.

Over the past 15 months, we have proved that we can win this war. We stand now at the moment of truth. Victory – and a democracy in the Arab world – is within our grasp. But it could yet slip away if our leaders remain transfixed by the war we almost lost, rather than focusing on the war we are winning today.

Michael Yon's book is out here.

Us Typicals get it again!

You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them…And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not.

And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

I hate the way Obama uses 'gonna'. I hate it when people don't say it right! (its 'going to') Obama is trying to back peddle hard on this statement. I know McCain's campaign is doing the right thing on this.


From WaPo on McCain's strategy:

McCain sees working-class voters -- many of them once and possibly still "Reagan Democrats" -- as a critical constituency for his hopes of winning the White House. His advisers say Obama will have trouble locking down that support in the general election because his message has been focused more on changing the system than on delivering results.


"It's a remarkable statement and extremely revealing," McCain adviser Steve Schmidt said in a statement. "It shows an elitism and condescension towards hardworking Americans that is nothing short of breathtaking, it is hard to imagine someone running for president who is more out of touch with average Americans."


By Obama's use of race, class, religion and gun rights, (etc) he has alienated many voters. He has distain for what America stands for: Our American Flag, our plegde to Alegence, and to the troops who are fighting for our freedoms. Obama is out of touch with America and shows it every time he opens his mouth.

Absolutely Absurd!

Please Pelosi demean the troops again!


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) warned Army Gen. David Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker on Thursday not to "put a shine on recent events” in Iraq when they testify before Congress next week.

“I hope we don’t hear any glorification of what happened in Basra,” said Pelosi, referring to a recent military offensive against Shiite militants in the city led by the Iraqi government and supported by U.S. forces.

Although powerful Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr agreed to a ceasefire after six days of fighting, Pelosi wondered why the U.S. was caught off guard by the offensive and questioned how the ceasefire was achieved, saying the terms were "probably dictated from Iran.”

“We have to know the real ground truths of what is happening there, not put a shine on events because of a resolution that looks less violent when in fact it has been dictated by al-Sadr, who can grant or withhold that call for violence,” Pelosi said.

Iraqis are defending Basra

Again the MSM is not covering this news. Iraqis are defending their country from the criminals who are disrupting the peace. They could not do it a year ago. Kudos to our military guys for training the Iraqi forces.


From Victory Caucus here:

Iraq’s security ultimately requires Iraqi solutions, and during the past 10 days the government of Iraq asserted the legitimate authority of the state against criminal gangs that threaten the peace and stability of the people of Basra.

Prime Minister Maliki stressed again yesterday that operations to strengthen the rule of law targeted criminals who threatened the security of lives and property. Operations in Basra over the past week were Iraqi-conceived, Iraqi-planned, and Iraqi-led. They were personally initiated and directed by the Prime Minister of Iraq and his National Security ministers, including the Ministers of Defense and Interior.

They involved an Iraqi deployment of forces that would not have been possible one year ago, that was nevertheless challenged by the distance involved and capabilities required.

McCain Understands, Obama doesn't

With the '100 years' in Iraq quote from McCain and the Dem's using it, John McCain's response here.
From Embeds here:
“It displays a fundamental misunderstanding of history and how we’ve maintained national security, and what we need to do in the future to maintain our security in the face of the transcendent challenge of radical Islamic extremism. And I understand that because he has no experience or background in any of it,” McCain said. “(He) either hasn’t read or (doesn’t) understand…the history of this country in warfare, and the way that we secure alliances and secure the peace–and that’s through military government to government agreements that call for United States presence and mutual defense. Not only in that country itself, but also in the region. Our troops in Japan maintain a military presence in Asia. Our troops in Japan and South Korea maintain stability in Asia. The same thing was true after World War II about our troops in Germany.”

April Fool's!

April Fools From The campaign that's never going to let you down! Red State here.


And Not April Fools here:

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton says she has something in common with legendary film boxer Rocky Balboa—she's not a quitter.

Recalling a famous scene on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art from the 1976 Oscar-winning film "Rocky," Clinton said that ending her presidential campaign now would be as if "Rocky Balboa had gotten halfway up those art museum steps and said, 'Well, I guess that's about far enough.'"

"Let me tell you something, when it comes to finishing a fight, Rocky and I have a lot in common. I never quit. I never give up. And neither do the American people," Clinton said in excerpts of prepared remarks to be given Tuesday to a meeting of the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO.
