Take the red pill, Mr. President

From David Freddoso at the Washington Examiner:

"If there's a blue pill and a red pill, and the blue pill is half the price of the red pill and works just as well, why not pay half price for the thing that's going to make you well?" -- President Obama

In last night's press conference, President Obama seemed to be reliving that famous scene from The Matrix. The main character is offered a choice between a red pill that makes him see reality for what it is, and a blue pill that allows him to continue living in a pleasant world of illusions.

Last night, President Obama appeared to have taken the blue pill before his press conference.

Obama Hits Bottom, Digs

The Cop-Basher-in-Chief thinks he can lie his way out of the "stupid-acting Cambridge Police" debacle he created at his press conference Wednesday night. He thinks he can say a few words and make it all go away.

Too late, Mr. President!

At an impromptu appearance at the daily White House briefing, Obama said "This has been ratcheting up, and I obviously helped to contribute ratcheting it up," he said. "I want to make clear that in my choice of words, I think I unfortunately gave an impression that I was maligning the Cambridge police department and Sgt. Crowley specifically. And I could've calibrated those words differently."

Sorry, Mr. President, but that's just a lie. You didn't "give the impression" that you maligned the Cambridge police. You maligned
the Cambridge police, plain and simple. But I guess it will be a cold day in hell before you actually face up to your own actions.

And I'm sorry but what does "I could've calibrated those words differently" mean, anyway? I suspect you are attempting to hide behind big words in an attempt to sound sophisticated, and remove yourself from the situation.


And Obama stubbornly clung to his assertion that the Cambridge police officer overreacted:
"I continue to believe based on what I've heard that there was an overreaction in pulling Professor Gates out of his home."

(Yes, that's the sound of shovels hitting dirt!)

And once again Obama resorted to his rhetorical chicanery. At the 2-minute mark in the video below, he tries to turn this into yet another race-relations lecture to the American people.

Just a suggestion, Mr. President: please keep your fraudulent non-apology apologies to yourself, 'cause you're the only one you're fooling!

India Rejects U.S. Proposal of Carbon Limits

Back in June we met with Congressman Leonard Lance regarding his "Yes" vote on the Cap and Trade bill. One of the reasons he gave for voting for it was his belief that it would give the United States greater leverage in convincing countries like China & India to go along with the idea.

Well, as it happens, India rejects cap & trade out-of-hand. As reported in this WSJ story, Indian Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh "delivered a strong rebuke to overtures from U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the two countries to work together to combat climate change."

China has alredy stated it won't ruin its economy with this foolish pursuit, and now India has clearly shown likewise. Why are our elected representatives so hell-bent on wrecking the US economy?
