I wonder if Morning Joe that promotes the cover of Time regularly

will decide to push this tidbit? Rush Limbaugh has been a rare voice arguing that the spill — he calls it "the leak" — is anything less than an ecological calamity, scoffing at the avalanche of end-is-nigh eco-hype. Well, Rush has a point. The Deepwater explosion was an awful tragedy for the 11 workers who … Continue reading I wonder if Morning Joe that promotes the cover of Time regularly

Yeah it’s a real story

But it sure looks silly on its face: No really? I thought they would open it up on special occasions, birthdays, national holidays, drunken parties for billionares etc. The actual story is here and it does have substance: Suttles' announcement seemed to alter the strategy that Coast Guard Admiral Thad W. Allen (ret.), the federal … Continue reading Yeah it’s a real story

This is why I love Rudy

He calls out Morning Joe over covering for Obama and isn't shy about it. You have 3-4 to one going after him, Joe is sitting back, but Mika, Barnicle, Ratigan, and Cramer are all going after him and they aren't laying a glove on him. In fact Ratigan seems to be conceding points! Money quote … Continue reading This is why I love Rudy

Watching Donny Deutsch on Morning Joe

was amusing. Deutsch was going on about how problems are not fast fix problems and it's the country's fault that we aren't patient enough to let President Obama to solve them. Joe Scarborough correctly pointed out that the media (or as he put it the "refs") gave him every call for the longest time and … Continue reading Watching Donny Deutsch on Morning Joe

Another example of the “if you start from the idea…

...that they are all Marxists it makes perfect sense." meme in play. In fact three of them: Item: Apparently environmental groups have decided that their love for the environment doesn't trump their loyalty to the dear leader president. Actress Q’orianka Kilcher chained herself to the White House fence while her mother slathered the “Pocahontas” star … Continue reading Another example of the “if you start from the idea…

This is what happens when you don’t talk to BP et/al

You end up ignorant of things that reporters and bloggers have known for days: TAPPER: I talked to a guy who runs a company in Maine that offers boom, and he has – he says – the ability to make 90,000 feet of boom a day. High quality. BP came there 2 weeks ago, looked … Continue reading This is what happens when you don’t talk to BP et/al

Charlie Crist getting some free publicity…

...as Morning Joe broadcasts from Pensacola. Now Joe is from Pensacola so it makes sense but no tough question has headed Crist's way from these guys. Like for example is he buying any of those booms from Maine, they've known about them for a little while now, has Crist purchased any to protest the beach? … Continue reading Charlie Crist getting some free publicity…

Interesting contrast “Government” vs “Taxpayers”

Apparently it all depends on what is being paid for. When it is welfare and other social programs that the left likes it is "Government" paying for it. But if it is something unpopular like say the oil spill, then it becomes the taxpayer money. This is not a comment on how it should be … Continue reading Interesting contrast “Government” vs “Taxpayers”

I was trying to remember…

...what the story of that boom company in Maine reminded me of: He’s already had a representative from BP visit his factory and inspect his product. The governor of Maine, John Baldacci, visited the facility and made a video plea to no one in particular to close the deal. Maine Senators Olympia Snowe and Susan … Continue reading I was trying to remember…

That streaming oil video is turning out to be very expensive…

...for the administration. Every single day you have pictures of that oil spill, the media thought it was a great tool to hit the right with. The right which is so much in favor of drilling for oil. It was a great way to show up that Sarah Palin know it all. Hasn't really turned … Continue reading That streaming oil video is turning out to be very expensive…

Morning Joe: Cafe Cafe Cafe

Before I had to run my youngest to school after missing his bus the gang talked about Cafe standard and using the Oil spill to reduce them again. Let me point out that the way cafe standards are reduced is not by redesigning the engine they are reduced by decreasing weight and removing steel, which … Continue reading Morning Joe: Cafe Cafe Cafe

Chris Matthews just nailed it!

One of the mistakes of the Obama administration was the "I'm in charge" mode on this, taking ownership on the BP stuff early. Now he owns a mess. Matthews just compared it to the Iranian Hostage Crisis in terms of political cost. That is exactly right and depending on the long term effects of this … Continue reading Chris Matthews just nailed it!

On Morning Joe: Lets go get BP!

On Morning Joe today they are going the whole "Bring them to justice" mode. Everybody seems to be acting as if BP was just dying to release oil into the Gulf, but what really annoys me is the suggestion that BP isn't trying to fix this. Does anyone seriously doubt that from Day 1 BP … Continue reading On Morning Joe: Lets go get BP!

Little Miss Attila comes upon a truth…

That has been ignored: Folks, what the hell is so much less delicate about the Gulf of Mexico than ANWR, where we could drill much more safely than in the Gulf? Nothing—that’s what. The ecosystems in the Gulf are far more vulnerable than those in ANWR—as are the local economies that depend on them. And … Continue reading Little Miss Attila comes upon a truth…
