Obama’s approval index is now minus 22.
This is a record low.

“Just 27% believe Congress knows what it’s doing when it comes to the economy and 41% say that a group of people randomly selected from the phone book would do a better job than the current Congress.”Hell, a group of homeless drunks randomly selected from any given skid row shelter would do a FAR better job than the utterly worthless Dims purporting to be running Congress these days.
“What if we could just be China for a day… where we could actually authorize the right solutions… on everything from the economy to [the] environment?”
“It began last November in statewide races in Virginia and New Jersey. Then it swept through Massachusetts in a stunning U.S. Senate special election this January. Most recently, it has spilled over into primary battles in Utah, Kentucky and Pennsylvania – growing more potent as the calendar year advances toward a climactic November 2010 showdown.
‘It’ is the ongoing, unequivocal public repudiation of the agenda of President Barack Obama – a seismic shift in the thinking of the American electorate regarding the sort of ‘change’ they want for their country…
And while the mainstream media continues to portray the Tea Party as part of the ‘fringe’ of America’s political spectrum (while relying on a generic ‘anti-incumbency’ foil to insulate Obama from the dramatic electoral defeats), the truth is the roots of this new limited government movement are deeper and stronger than anyone previously imagined. Also, reversing Obama’s harmful policies not only remains the movement’s raison d’etre – but its source of popular support.”
“In the following interview, Dr. Willie Soon, a solar and climate scientist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, questions the prevailing dogma of man-made global warming and challenges his peers to ‘take back climate science.’ His remarks are his personal opinion based upon 19 years of scientific research.”

“President Barack Obama on Monday nominated former U.S. solicitor general Elena Kagan to the United States Supreme Court…
In naming the 50-year-old former Harvard Law School dean, Mr. Obama also broke with decades of tradition by choosing a candidate who has never been a judge.”
“before becoming solicitor general in March 2009, Ms Kagan had never argued a case in court”I suppose in the rarefied world of those who embrace Cultural Marxism, her rumored lesbian orientation (see the prior BBC link) would be enough to make her “eminently qualified”.

“one of the main reasons why there are not more female science professors or chief executives or Cabinet ministers is that, on average, men are more intelligent than women…
not only is the average man more intelligent than the average woman but also a clear and rather startling imbalance emerges between the sexes at the high levels of intelligence that the most demanding jobs require.
For instance, at the near-genius level (an IQ of 145), brilliant men outnumber brilliant women by 8 to one…
In recent years, the forces of political correctness have made the reporting of this sort of statistic virtually impossible.”
“we can see that the difficult and at times unpopular steps that we’ve taken over the past year are making a difference”That’s Obama -- on 5/7/10 -- trying his best to spin an INCREASE in the unemployment rate from 9.7% to 9.9%.
“Federal agents and police detectives arrested a Connecticut man, a naturalized United States citizen from Pakistan, early Tuesday in connection with the failed Times Square car bombing, according to people briefed on the investigation.”
“The National Academy of Sciences reported in 2003 [actually, it was released in 2002] that more than 60% — roughly 47 million gallons — of crude released in North American waters each year comes from natural seepage from the sea floor. Only 1% comes from offshore oil and gas development.
In fact, offshore drilling can reduce this natural seepage by extracting crude and relieving geological pressure from below.
Meanwhile, other forms of energy get an environmental pass…
[snipped is a litany of documented eco-damage from so-called “Green Energy” such as Ethanol and Wind Mills]
The irony is that the nonfatal accident at Three Mile Island in 1979 and the 1986 Soviet disaster at Chernobyl conspired to deprive the U.S. of a nonpolluting form of power generation — nuclear power.
A danger exists that similar overblown fears of offshore oil production will doom the U.S. to being the Bangladesh of domestic energy production.
We need the energy, the jobs and the economic growth. Can we produce enough domestic energy from all sources safely and in sufficient quantities to achieve genuine energy independence?
Yes we can.”
“a reasonable seep rate for the entire Gulf [of Mexico] is… about 140,000 tonnes per year”The Exxon Valdez spilled less than 40,000 tonnes.
