The Incredible Shrinking President

***This is a great piece by Mark Steyn. Read it. Really.

We also learned that, in those first moments of the attack, a request for military back-up was made by U.S. staff on the ground but was denied by Washington. It had planes and special forces less than 500 miles away in southern Italy — or about the same distance as Washington to Boston. They could have been there in less than two hours. Yet the commander-in-chief declined to give the order. So Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods fought all night against overwhelming odds, and died on a rooftop in a benighted jihadist hellhole while Obama retired early to rest up before his big Vegas campaign stop. “Within minutes of the first bullet being fired the White House knew these heroes would be slaughtered if immediate air support was denied,” said Ty Woods’s father, Charles. “In less than an hour, the perimeters could have been secured and American lives could have been saved. After seven hours fighting numerically superior forces, my son’s life was sacrificed because of the White House’s decision.”

This is sickening, and it makes me even madder at the clueless followers who still support Obama. I'll say it again - if he's re-elected and you voted for him, the blood of the soldiers this happens to in the future is also on YOUR hands. If you can't see that Barack Obama is unfit to command our soldiers after this, I really can't understand what's wrong with you.

***The iPad of 1935:




***Obama tells MTV he won't push for gay marriage in second term. Oh...really? You mean...that was just a fundraising gimmick? Nooooo, say it isn't so...

From the comments:

“Let me be clear” at this point any voter who believes anything this man promises is either an idiot or trying to be victimized.

***Absentee ballots going to military in Afghanistan may have been burned in plane crash. Nothing to see here, move along. It's just a coincidence, really!

***Okay, I support Romney and everything, but I think this is going a bit far...



***You gotta watch this - bird poops on TV anchor live!

***Gallup poll predicts "wave election" for GOP. Oh, I hope I hope I hope...

 In 2008, 54% of likely voters identified as Democrat or lean Democrat. 42% of likely voters identified as GOP or lean GOP. In other words, the electorate, including independents who lean towards a particular party, was D+12. This year, however, the Democrat advantage has disappeared. 49% of likely voters today identify as GOP or lean GOP. Just 46% of likely voters are or lean towards the Democrats. This is a 15-point swing towards the GOP from 2008 to an outright +3 advantage for the GOP. By comparison, in 2004, when Bush won reelection, the electorate was evenly split, with each party getting support from 48% of likely voters.

If these numbers are within even a few points of what this survey suggests, then Romney will win decisively and the GOP will pick up the Senate. We are likely standing on the edge of another GOP wave election.

As Glenn Reynolds always says, though, don't get cocky! VOTE!

Sometimes we wonder, "What did I do to deserve this?" or "Why did God have to do this to me?"  Here is a wonderful explanation!
A daughter is telling her Mother how everything is going wrong, she's failing algebra, her boyfriend broke up with her and her best friend is moving away.
Meanwhile, her Mother is baking a cake and asks her daughter if she would like a snack, and the daughter says, "Absolutely Mom, I love your cake."
"Here, have some cooking oil," her Mother offers.
"Yuck" says her daughter.
"How about a couple raw eggs?"
"Gross, Mom!"
"Would you like some flour then?  Or maybe baking soda?"
"Mom, those are all yucky!"
To which the mother replies, "Yes, all those things seem bad all by themselves. But when they are put together in the right way, they make a wonderfully delicious cake!
God works the same way.  Many times we wonder why He would let us go through such bad and difficult times.  But God knows that when He puts these things all in His order, they always work for good!  We just have to trust Him and, eventually, they will all make something wonderful!

***Okay, gonna be hard to beat this costume...



***Have you ever heard of the reality show "Duck Dynasty?" I haven't, but then I never watch TV, that might have something to do with it. Seems the family's Christianity makes the producers a little nervous. What a surprise.

A&E’s hit reality series “Duck Dynasty” has made celebrities out of Duck Commander Phil Robertson, his wife Kay and their bearded, camo-clad sons Willie, Jase and Jeptha, not to mention “Uncle Si,” Phil’s younger brother.DuckDynasty1.jpg

As the network portrays it, the series — whose Season 1 finale drew 2.6 million viewers — follows a Louisiana bayou family living the American dream as they operate a thriving duck call and decoy business while staying true to their family values.

For the Robertsons, those values relate to the grace and salvation found in Jesus.

But for the show’s producers, the family’s strong Christian faith seems to be an uncomfortable storyline — one frequently chopped in the editing room.
