Stat of the Day: Terrible Deterioration of Race Relations Under Obama

In our Liberty Update commentary last week, we noted the many failures of Barack Obama as president over the past eight years.  Today, as the nation celebrates Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, a Washington Post-ABC News survey shows just how disastrously race relations have declined under his watch:

In a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll, 63 percent of Americans think race relations are 'generally bad.' Shortly after Obama took office, that number was 22 percent. In the same time period, those who think race relations are 'generally good' plummeted from 66 percent to 32 percent." Of his failures and disastrous legacy, this may be the most depressing.…[more]

Just wait until about half of those government grunts face losing their houses and their kids’ college funds to pay their legal bills.

Memo To: Rahm Emanuel
From: O

Looks like Panetta may quit before we can fire his ass, so you better get cracking on a replacement. What is it about these guys? You send perfectly normal people to Langley, they get a secret decoder ring, a toy pistol and a poison fingernail, and the next thing you know they’ve gone all Marlon Brando Kurtz on you.

Pelosi is so wee weed up that Hoyer won’t even go near her office. She’s so pissed that publicly Holder’s investigation is excluding Bush and Cheney that she’s threatening to cut off funding for ACORN. Why can’t she understand that politically we need to run this like a Mafia roll-up, scaring the crap out of the CIA underbosses now, and get them to give up the Capos as we get closer to 2012? All she has to do is sing “Love me, Love me, Love me, I’m a Liberal” to get re-elected in San Francisco. Has she ever even been to Ohio?

Just wait until about half of those government grunts face losing their houses and their kids’ college funds to pay their legal bills. Who needs drills? They’ll rat out their grandmothers, and we can run six months of leaks to the Timesbefore even indicting anyone.

Anyway, Powell could get confirmed lickety split, we could call him a “Republican” appointee (hee, hee), but there’s no way he could understand that we really want him to do nothing but come over here every day in the limo, have a cup of coffee in the mess and then leave. He ought to be on the leak list, though, help keep his speaking fees up there.

Sandy Berger would be the perfect choice, if he hadn’t gotten caught stuffing his jock strap with classified stuff. Nobody’s gonna buy a DCI who has to be cavity-searched before going home every night.

We can’t take Dodd out of the Senate now, although you can bet he’s going to be here whining for something when he loses.

It would be good to move Napolitano somewhere where she’d have to shut up, but she doesn’t know the difference between Mexico and Canada, and she’d be in here every day trying to get us to drone conservative churches, not that I wouldn’t like to do that, but we’ve just got to hold off on some stuff for a while.

We’ve got to keep Sibelius where she is so she can take the hit for the swine flu debacle, which is going to make Katrina look like a day at the beach. (By the way, make sure the teleprompter doesn’t get me to say “Good job, Kathleenie” to her anytime soon.)

I’m at a loss. One job, just one job in the entire government where we don’t want anyone to do anything except mess with the Israelis and keep sending over that al Qaeda porn they look at all day, and there’s no one stupid enough to take it. Actually, now that I think about it, why don’t you give Bill Richardson a call. Now that you and Holder got that investigation dead-ended, he’d be okay. God only knows, he’ll take a do-nothing job.

Quote of the Day   
 
"Not since 1980 --” or perhaps 1932 -- has such a political revolution hit the banks of the Potomac River. Donald Trump comes into the White House with a bright, clear mandate to make wholesale changes to every aspect of the federal government. From the darkest corners of the bloated federal bureaucracy to the bright marble columns of the Supreme Court, Mr. Trump's mandate is as broad as it is dramatic…[more]

If ObamaCare repeal and replacement begin immediately, but take 2 to 3 years to fully implement, will you consider the promises of President Trump and the Republican Congress to be met?
