Obama’s Lowlights (5/7/12)

Fast and Furious – Assistant attorney general, Robert Weich, is leaving his post for a position at the University of Baltimore Law School. Weich was the DOJ point man for communications about the Fast and Furious program.

Wasserman-Schultz – In a Fox News interview the DNC head had this to say about the federal budget: that Americans aren't "interested in" these types of "process" questions.

Sudan - Sudanese warplanes on Monday bombed a market and an oil field in newly independent South Sudan, an action that South Sudan’s president says amounts to a declaration of war on his country.

Native Americans - The United Nations is investigating the living conditions of the 2.7 million Native American living in the United States.

Afghanistan - Under a new agreement, the United States will help defend Afghanistan for at least ten years after Afghans formally take control of their security and U.S. forces are drawn down.

Immigration Law - From the tenor of the oral argument (Supreme Court on Arizona SB1070), it’s possible a ruling in the case may not fall strictly along ideological lines. Some of the court’s liberal justices, though expressing concerns about the Arizona law, wondered whether the state could be prohibited from checking the immigration status of individuals within its borders.

Regulations - The Midnight Rule Relief Act, H.R. 4607, follows an April letter from House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) that urged President Obama not to pass any "midnight regulations."

Student Loans – House Republicans have agreed to a proposal to keep student loan interest rates at 3.4% by paying for difference using 6 billion dollars from ObamaCare funding for chronic illnesses. Obama intends to veto this compromise.

War on Women – The wage gap between men and women has been outlined by liberals, but reports indicate that a lot more women work part time and therefore, fewer hours than men, which explains the gap.

Yemen – Obama has expanded drone strikes in Yemen against suspected terrorists.

Economy - More Americans than forecasted filed applications for unemployment benefits last week, a sign that the labor market has yet to strengthen. And what’s worse first quarter GDP growth was only 2.2% down from 3% the last quarter of 2011.

Random Drug Testing – A federal judge ruled that Florida governor, Rick Scott’s, law to randomly drug test government employees as unconstitutional.

Green Jobs – According to reports President Obama’s green agenda is responsible for sending both jobs and billions of taxpayer dollars overseas to fund “green energy” companies.

Romney Donors – The Obama campaign is maintaining a website which is being used exclusively to smear any high paying donors to the Romney campaign.

Bin Laden – A new Obama campaign ad suggests Romney would not have made the “gutsy” call to kill Bin Laden. This is a desperate campaign ad because it contains no facts and is merely hypothetical.

Education - In front of thousands of service members, Obama signed an executive order aimed at protecting veterans from for-profit educational institutions.


  1. “War on Women”

    Ha! This has been one of the phoniest of all leftwing campaigns, and there’s a lot of competition for that honor.

    I think the Republicans should adopt their own campaign slogan to describe the tactics of the Left: “The war on America.”

    That’s what ultimately comes from their war on unity, reason and tolerance.

  2. Hi CW, good to hear from you. Yes, I posted this past week about the liberal hypocrisy over the War on Women called the Liberal War Machine. It is Phony!
