There’s just so much going on it’s hard to pick a topic. Federal Judge Bolton blocked key portions of the Arizona Immigration bill and AZ has already submitted an appeal to the 9th Circuit. On the other side of the country, Charlie Rangel’s attempt to negotiate a settlement of his 13 ethics charges failed and it’s on to the trial. Maxine Waters is next going before the ethics panel.
GOP Rep Tom Price (R-GA) has submitted a resolution to the House that would block any Lame Duck sessions after the November elections. The purpose would be to block the “passing hugely unpopular legislation like a national energy tax, enormous deficit spending bills, and the kickback to Big Labor known as “Card Check.”“
Obama goes on the liberal talk show “The View” and calls African-Americans “a mongrel people” and then “blames the media for creating a “phony controversy” over racial remarks by a black Agriculture Department official that were posted on the Internet. His administration ousted the employee, but then apologized and offered to rehire her.”
In the meantime, Michelle and daughter Sasha plan on a “vacation” to Spain, missing Obama’s birthday in the process. Just what does that foretell? How many loving wives would take off on a vacation accompanied only a daughter and miss their husband’s birthday? There is nothing planned in Spain that couldn’t be postponed a week. Oh, they’ll be vacationing in Maine after they return. Just who will be there is yet open.
Perhaps Michelle is taking off because they didn’t get invited to Chelsea Clinton’s wedding. Surely that is a snub. Obama’s Secretary of State’s daughter is getting married and Michelle and the POTUS aren’t invited. That’s a slap in the face and it’s not subtle either.
The post-Heller and McDonald lawsuits continue. The Second Amendment Foundation is suing the state of Maryland over their “may issue” policies.
All in all, it has been an eventful week. I could do without another like it.
