Obama’s Lowlights (3/15/12)

American Terrorists - The Obama administration has outlined how U.S. laws empower the government to kill Americans overseas who engage in terrorism against their home country. But at the same time the administration is against enhanced interrogation techniques – go figure.

Taxes – According to a report from the Treasury Department, illegal aliens will be getting billions in tax refunds off the backs of taxpayers, legally through the tax code.

Bin Laden – A document dump by Wikileaks reveals evidence that Bin Laden may not be buried at sea, but was placed on a plane and sent to the U.S.

Afghanistan – A Karzai investigation revealed that U.S. troops intentionally burned Korans – which is obviously contrary to U.S. military reports.

Green Companies - President Obama's Department of Energy helped finance several green energy companies that later fell into bankruptcy -- but not before the firms doled out six-figure bonuses and payouts to top executives, a Center for Public Integrity and ABC News investigation found. Where is the liberal outrage?

Rush Limbaugh – Yes, Rush was out of line for calling a Georgetown law student (Sandra Fluke) a slut and prostitute after she spoke before Congress in favor of the birth control mandate. But the law student was wrong to ask other Americans to fund contraception for her sexual activity, this is irresponsible behavior (and the real question is why did she get this opportunity to speak in front of Congress). Fluke was also wrong for not accepting Rush’s apology. And let’s not forget the hateful comments and conspiracy theories made by leftist’s against people like Sarah Palin (for example, she was blamed for the Gabriel Giffords shooting) and Joe the Plumber to name a few. What’s worse, on the official White House web site (using taxpayer money), there’s a petition to silence Rush Limbaugh.

Gun Laws - The U.S. District Court in Maryland found the state’s gun registration law unconstitutional. Maryland residents are currently required to show a "good and substantial reason" to maintain a gun permit.

Israel – Netanyahu on Iran: “Unfortunately, Iran’s nuclear program continues to march forward…We’ve waited for diplomacy to work. We’ve waited for sanctions to work. None of us can afford to wait much longer. As prime minister of Israel, I will never let my people live in the shadow of annihilation.”

Chevy Volt - The Geneva Auto Show announced this past week that the Volt, which is sold in Europe as the Opel Ampera, was named its 2012 Car of the Year ahead of its annual car show that opens this week. Too bad Chevy has shut down production of this so called awesome car.

Michelle Obama Vacations - A conservative legal group is suing the U.S. Air Force for access to first lady Michelle Obama's travel records from a 2010 vacation to Spain.

Medicaid – Visits to the emergency room are up 16% the last 2 years for common dental issues since the number of dentists willing to see Medicaid patients is decreasing.

MSNBC – Host, Ed Schultz, insinuated that Southerners are “dumb” because Georgia went for Gingrich on Super Tuesday.

Racism - San Antonio Independent School District officials took the chant (“USA, USA, USA” after an Alamo Heights Basketball victory) as a racial insult to a school with all minority players from a school with mostly white ones.
