“Only in politics do people root for bad news, do they greet bad news so enthusiastically,” Obama said before a crowd of students.
“You pay more and they’re licking their chops. And you can bet since it’s an election year, they’re already dusting off their three-point plans for $2 gas,” Obama said. “I’ll save you the suspense: step one is drill, step two is drill, and then step three is keep drilling.
“We heard the same line in 2007 when I was running for president,” Obama said. “We hear the same thing every year. We’ve heard the same thing for 30 years.”
And it continues that nothing, inclusive of gas prices, is his fault.
Things were different four years ago when Bush was President. Back then everything was Bush’s fault.
Conservative talk radio host Mark Levin took to the airwaves Friday to defend Rush Limbaugh from all the media attacks he’s receiving over his comments regarding Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke.
“You’re not going to succeed in driving Rush Limbaugh from the airwaves…In fact, I think I speak for tens of millions of Americans when I say you can go to hell” (video available here, partial transcript follows):
I want the leftists at MSNBC, CNN, and the other so-called news outlets who are dressed up as journalists but are nothing of the sort, I want you to understand something. You don’t get to decide who the rest of us listen to. You don’t get to decide who the rest of us admire. You’re not going to succeed in driving Rush Limbaugh from the airwaves. I don’t care how many cowardly Republicans you speak to. I don’t care how many inside-the-beltway pseudo-conservatives you speak to and so forth.
Our nation is teetering. Everything we believe in is being undermined. The future for our children and grandchildren is perilous. And you in the media do the bidding of the very politicians who have brought us to this dire state. You don’t get to dictate to us. You don’t even get to influence us, try as you might.
Rush isn’t going anywhere because there’s tens of millions of us standing by his side. And we’re not going anywhere either.

A 2-year-old baby girl found alive but critically injured in an Indiana corn field following yesterday’s devastating tornado outbreak is the sole surviving member of her immediate family.
The child was found in a corn field near her home in New Pekin. She was taken to a hospital in Salem before being transferred to a hospital in Louisville, Kentucky, where she is currently listed in critical condition.
A spokeswoman for Kosair Children’s Hospital said the girl’s parents and two young siblings perished during the storm. Her extended family is currently with her at the hospital.
Officials provided no further details, but neighbors said the girl’s family was last seen holding hands and praying on the floor in the hallway of their mobile home.
Resident Jason Miller reportedly attempted to move the family to his larger mobile home, but it was too late.
Miller’s girlfriend Beverly Lanham told the Louisville Courier-Journal her boyfriend was picked up by the tornado along with his neighbors, and tossed across a nearby road.
The 31-year-old survived — the family, save for one member, did not.
Yesterday’s tornado outbreak — potentially the worst March outbreak in recorded US history — has claimed the lives of at least 38 people across five states, and injured hundreds of others.
KABUL (Reuters) — Afghans will never accept US justice for five American soldiers involved in burning copies of the Koran, and could rise up in a “storm of fury” if there is no public trial, a senior cleric said on Saturday.
The burning of Korans at a NATO air base has incensed the Muslim nation and sparked protests, complicating efforts by the United States to forge a long-term security pact with Afghanistan ahead of an end-2014 foreign combat troop pullout.
“The military leaders who ordered the burning and the offenders should both be tried and punished. . . This evil crime has been done inside Afghanistan so the punishment must be according to the country’s law [Sharia is Afghanistan's sole source of law],” Qazi Nazir Ahmad Hanafi, head of an Afghan group comprising clerics and parliamentarians investigating the incident, told Reuters.
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — At least five American military personnel could face a disciplinary review over the burning of Qurans at a U.S. base in Afghanistan as conflicting accounts of what happened emerged Saturday, fueling more confusion over the incident that sparked six days of deadly riots across the nation.
A Western official told The Associated Press that a joint investigation by senior Afghan and U.S. military officials has convinced them that although mistakes were made, there was no intent to desecrate the Qurans and other Islamic religious texts.
The official, who has knowledge of the investigation, said it could lead to a disciplinary review of at least five U.S. military personnel involved. The official did not elaborate and spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the case. It is unclear what such a review could recommend.
President Barack Obama and other U.S. officials have apologized and said the Feb. 20 burning at a burn pit at Bagram Air Field outside Kabul was an accident. But the apologies failed to quell the anger, although protests over the burnings have now ebbed.
(bet bottom line, their names will be outed by someone in the obama regime, they will be sacrificed by obama to save what little face he has in the islamic world)
A Statement from Rush
March 03, 2012
For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week. In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke.
I think it is absolutely absurd that during these very serious political times, we are discussing personal sexual recreational activities before members of Congress. I personally do not agree that American citizens should pay for these social activities. What happened to personal responsibility and accountability? Where do we draw the line? If this is accepted as the norm, what will follow? Will we be debating if taxpayers should pay for new sneakers for all students that are interested in running to keep fit? In my monologue, I posited that it is not our business whatsoever to know what is going on in anyone’s bedroom nor do I think it is a topic that should reach a Presidential level.
My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices.
Sandra Fluke is not a “slut.” She’s a femme-agogue tool; DCCC, Emily’s list fund-raise off of Rush
Hey, so much for keeping a laser-beam focus on jobs, jobs, jobs, eh?
My two cents: Yes, we’re seeing the usual left-wing double standards when it comes to defending women against sexist putdowns. The language Rush used is completely unacceptable…except when it’s used against the likes of Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, myself, and every other prominent female conservative in public life, of course.
I’ll tell you why Rush was wrong. Young Sandra Fluke of Georgetown Law is not a “slut.” She’s a moocher and a tool of the Nanny State. She’s a poster girl for the rabid Planned Parenthood lobby and its eugenics-inspired foremothers.
There’s a lot more HERE. It’s worth the read.
This is the first in a series of “liberal pickup line” graphics.
To give fair warning, the language isn’t going to be x-rated, but it’s not for kids either.
Valarie Jarrett Controls the Puppet’s Strings
Watch your back – one of the most dangerous persons in our Government is watching you. Obama’s Senior Adviser in the White House Valerie Jarrett is the “Head Honcho” in Washington DC – she’s the one who controls the puppet strings. In fact without being in error, you could say we have a Communist running our Country.
