Oops. “CBS News poll finds more Americans than ever want Obamacare repealed.”
Ugh. “Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) on Tuesday defended remarks he made about most illegal immigrants being drug runners, saying the ‘physical characteristics’ of many in the country illegally was evidence that they’d been hauling drugs across the border.” A total disgrace.
Ouch. “The psychological dimensions of this case are too complicated for most of us to untangle. But it’s obvious even to people without a degree in psychiatry that Mr. Weiner has a compulsive need for public adoration that finds its expression in running for and serving in public office. His vanity seems to demand it, to the point that he’s convinced himself that the Empire City cannot function unless he’s mayor. This is, of course, ludicrous. But Weiner (and apparently his long-suffering wife) have convinced themselves that he is New York City’s Indispensible Man.”
Yikes. “Meet President Obama’s new economic message. Same as his old economic message.” I’ve yet to see someone who doesn’t work for him praise the speech.
Egad. “I’d like to think a good wife would have urged Weiner to call it quits. What was clear, at least to this observer, however, is that Abedin had a mission beyond common decency: the preservation of a power couple’s political viability. . . . If Abedin wants to forgive her husband, that’s fine by me, though next time — and there will be a next time — I beg her to do it in private. She has given standing by your man a bad name.”
Wow. Who knew? “A panel of experts told an audience at the Heritage Foundation Wednesday afternoon that the United States can expect more of the same rhetoric from incoming Iranian President Hassan Rowhani and that Iran is much closer to getting ‘the bomb’ than many people believe. Senior research fellow for Middle Eastern Affairs of the Heritage Foundation James Phillips explained that the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei ‘calls the shots’ and there is only a façade of democracy in Iran.”
Phooey. “New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner wrote an 11-paragraph, 543-word email to supporters Wednesday explaining why he isn’t dropping out of the race, despite new allegations he was involved in sexual chats with a woman after he resigned from his U.S. House seat for similar reasons.” Because he is one disturbed individual?
