Above is a video clip from the hit television series The West Wing where Josh Lyman, the Deputy Chief of Staff to the president, thinks he can easily handle the White House press pool. Notice how he gets stumped at the end of the clip about an “inflation plan”. Instead of admitting that the president doesn’t have a plan to tackle the possibility of inflation, Josh decides to call the press pool stupid and tells that he does have a plan. Entertaining, right?

Now let’s comeback to reality.

Here’s a video clip of President Obama’s White House Press Secretary Jay Carney from earlier today:

Haha… Priceless! It’s crazy how The West Wing can mirror real life at times.

On a serious note, where’s the [real] president’s plan at???

Guy Benson – from Townhall.com – made an interesting point:

Since his unmitigated failure of a budget was unanimously defeated in the Senate, this president has refused to offer a specific plan of his own on virtually anything at all.  Instead, he talks about “visions” and “contours” and “frameworks” — and tries to blame his opponents when his poor leadership is exposed.  Over the last five days, the president has (a) undermined a bargain with John Boehner by introducing an unacceptable eleventh-hour condition, (b) rejected “out of hand” a bipartisan compromise that he found to be politically unpalatable, and (c) delivered a speech that painted his opponents as the intractable extremists.  In light of this behavior, it’s entirely reasonable for Americans to wonder what, precisely, Barack Obama’s proposed solution might be.  Today, the White House dismissively waived off that question as a GOP talking point and condescendingly inquired if the journalist who dared to ask it was capable of taking notes.

Well said.

Have you ever wondered what the “hipsters” at the SXSW Music and Media Conference in Austin, Texas thought about Net Neutrality? 

Answer: Steven Crowder finds out.

As a huge computer and social media geek, I believe Net Neutrality is one of the worst concepts jotted down on paper:

Net Neutrality is a proposed set of regulatory powers that would grant the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) the ability to control how Internet service providers (ISPs) package their services. Proponents argue that such rules are necessary to ensure that ISPs treat all data on the Internet equally and don’t slow or even restrict access to various websites and other parts of the Internet.

However well-intentioned, the practical effect will be to limit consumer choice and grant the federal government unprecedented power over the Internet, all in the name of fixing a problem that doesn’t exist in any meaningful way. Indeed, examples of the behavior that Net Neutrality will combat are few and far between.

As I have mentioned before on my blog,  David Harsanyi says it best: Why would we want a prehistoric bureaucracy overseeing one of the past century’s great improvements?

Wonder what you would find if you frisked US Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) and Obamacare?

Answer: Steven Crowder breaks it down.

Haha.

Although Steven Crowder uses humor to address the serious issues facing our country, the Obamacare waiver problem is bigger than you might think. Explain this to me: Why are the same people (liberals and organized labor unions) that fought for Obamacare now seeking to be exempt from it?

The Heritage Foundation reports:

The answer, of course, is that if everybody could escape from government-designed health insurance, then everybody would. And besides, the HHS Web site explains, “Annual limits waivers are temporary.  In 2014 annual dollar limits will be prohibited and mini-med plans will no longer be necessary.” Viola. Since they’re prohibited, nobody will want them anymore.

The Daily Caller reports:

To date, the Obama administration has issued more than a thousand health care waivers to organizations desiring a year-long exemption from the law’s coverage requirement.

“Democrats continue to tout the benefits of the health care reform, yet some of their biggest political contributors such as labor unions are filing for waivers,” said Ensign. “The more than one thousand waivers that have already been granted should send a strong signal of how economically damaging this law is, and now more than ever we need to work toward full repeal.”

Luckily for you, conservative groups have put together a website where you can fill out a form to ask the Department of Health and Human Services for your own Obamacare wavier. Click here to visit WheresMYWaiver.com.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the George Soros-funded smear site Think Progress?

Answer: A liberal blogger that really sucks at his job.

Fox Nation reports:

Yesterday at CPAC in Washington DC, a liberal blogger from a Soros-funded smear site attempted to “ambush” Fox News’ Jesse Watters, who was covering the conservative conference for FoxNation.com and whose “ambush” interviews are frequently featured on The O’Reilly Factor. It was an embarrassing disaster for the little left-wing blogger. We’re surprised he posted the video because it was such a failure, but thrilled he did.

Haha. “Watch the blazer, bro.”

For the record, this is how you ambush.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked all of the political highlights from 2010?

Answer: Quite a lot happened!

Haha! Props to Jib-Jab for putting together this video.

Although I think 2009’s video was better, this year’s was still pretty good.

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful New Years Eve!

Stop the spending!

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the size of government?

Answer: Too little means very low economic growth, but too much means… well, the same exact thing.

Ladies and gentlemen… Welcome to Econ 101. Today, we bring you the Rahn Curve to show the declining growth of an economy when government grows too big.

There’s no wonder why President Reagan was able to turn around an awful recession so quickly based on the principle of smaller government:

The contrast with President Reagan’s antirecession and pro-growth measures in 1981 is striking. Reagan reduced marginal and corporate tax rates and slowed the growth of nondefense spending. Recovery began about a year later. After 18 months, the economy grew more than 9% and it continued to expand above trend rates.

In the end, larger government and high uncertainty is the enemy of investment and growth. Unfortunately, this is the type of common sense that today’s liberals and the Democratic Party continuously fail to understand. Quite honestly, it is baffling how such a large group of individuals can be so hellbent on their own ideology – that’s strictly based on theory and not reality – that they fail to look at history and the successful solutions of the past. Perhaps one day they will comeback down to Earth, but then again I might be losing touch with reality to hope for such a thing.

Rep. Etheridge (D-NC).

Wonder what you would find if you frisked Congressman Bob Etheridge (D-NC) while he goes for a casual stroll down the street?

Answer: Some built up violent rage towards college students.

This is absolutely shocking…

Mike Flynn from Big Government reports:

Last week, Democrat Congressman Bob Etheridge (D-NC2) attended a fundraiser headlined by Speaker Nancy Pelosi. He was asked by some students on the street whether he supported the “Obama Agenda.” He didn’t take it well.

Expect more of this. The hard, progressive left captured the Democrat majority in Congress and forced them to enact a fantasy grab-bag of legislation that is increasingly unpopular with the American public. We’re on the cusp of a deeper recession, millions of unemployed Americans have no prospect for work, taxes are about to spike higher and we’ve maxed out the national credit card. The Democrats were given a chance to run government and they’ve only succeeded in running it into the ground.

So, yeah, Democrats who are up for reelection this November are a bit testy.

[…]

Let’s recap what we saw on this video. A sitting Congressman–a presumed living extension of James Madison and other founding fathers–was asked on a public street whether he supported the President’s agenda. His response was to hit away a video camera and assault a student. The age of Pericles this ain’t.

Honestly, what part of “you work for us” do these people – especially liberals -not understand? Whatever happened to simply replying with “no comment”? I thought that would be the first lesson learned by members of Congress… Obviously not taught by the Democrats.

Remember all the liberals warning America about the “violent rhetoric” being demonstrated by the Tea Parties and Conservatives? (If you don’t, you can watch here: Video 1Video 2, Video 3, Video 4, Video 5, etc.) Hmm… Isn’t it funny how all the actual violence is coming from liberals? Perhaps the mainstream media should do their job and get on that one.

Let’s remove this pathetic politician from office this November! Donate to his Republican opponent today:

Renee Ellmers for U.S. Congress!

Also, please don’t forget to…
