Watch the 2010 Senior Bowl here.
Enjoy. It’s a long time till September.
The first hour of Pres Obama’s first State of The Union Address was the most divisive, partisan, and bitter SOTU that I have ever heard, in my entire adult lifetime.
And, I’m no spring chicken.
The last half hour wasn’t any better.
He didn’t pivot to the center, as some expected, but rather gave a head fake toward the center, then restated his radical progressive nightmare vision for America, persuading no one not already on board with him. Amidst the phony calls for bi-partisanship, the one truth that was spoken tonight was the fact that the Democrats control historically large majorities in both houses, and they’re not about to quit trying to impose their will against the majority of citizens. For Obama and the dems, bipartisanship is defined as picking up one Republican vote in the Senate (by any means necessary) in order to resume their program of “fundamental change.”
I do wonder if the Republic will survive this charlatan. My fear is a complete collapse of the economy.
If I’m right, there will be much to do to prepare for life in this post-American, Obama world.
It won’t be pleasant.
Take care of your families.
Take care of yourself.
Update: Here’s an interesting video from the jellytoast blog. Two years ago, Obama gave the dem response to Pres Bush’s final SOTU. This is the first time I’e seen it, because at the time, I had no interest in seeing it.
It is remarkable in that it is basically the same speech he gave tonight, with one notable exception: Obama claimed that the surge failed. If we had followed Obama’s plan to immediately begin withdrawing from Iraq two years ago, then he would not have been able to stand up tonight and shamelessly claim credit for ending the war in Iraq. Iraq would be a complete basket case. Obama was wrong then, and he hasn’t changed a bit.
Update 2: Nile Gardiner (Telegraph) grades the speech an F on international leadership.
Democrat Underground, however, thinks Obama is God himself. And if you can’t see that, well, you’re just blind.
President Obama’s 0-fer streak continues.
What began as a thank-you call for Haitian relief efforts to the top-ranked Kentucky Wildcats became the latest example of the Obama Kiss of Death.
Obama and the Wildcats participated on the phone call Tuesday afternoon in Columbia, S.C., where Kentucky was to play South Carolina on Tuesday night. link
Final Score, South Carolina 68 Kentucky 62.
I received an email today, and wanted to post it for for your consideration:

“The president is entitled to have whatever policy advisers he wants. But when you have someone whose job it is to enforce the law you must have someone who is not only qualified but someone determined to enforce the law.”
That standard is sadly lacking in the Holder Justice Department.
While some conservatives doubted that the man who helped facilitate the Marc Rich pardon and overrode the recommendation of career attorneys to give Bill Clinton a favorable recommendation on the pardon of 16 Puerto Rican terrorists in 1999… was up to the job, he was confirmed by a vote of 75-21 with the support of many Republican senators.

Here’s Howard Dean, telling the BBC that the election of Scott Brown in Massachusetts was not a revolt from the right….
So there you have it folks. According to weird uncle Howie, The Democrats lost because they weren’t progressive enough.
Thanks for clearing that up for us Howard.
I guess I see this as some sort of validation from the mainstream press …

Lots going on today. Here are a few headlines for your consideration …

Obama Cuts Deal that Will Reduce Social Security, Medicare and all Entitlements
“While the Massachusetts voters were casting their ballots to install the upstart Republican Scott Brown to Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat, President Obama was hammering out an agreement with Democratic leaders to support a plan to issue an executive order to cut entitlements, including Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.”
SCOTUS rolls back McCain-Feingold
Writing for the court’s five conservatives, Justice Anthony Kennedy ruled that a central provision of the 2002 McCain-Feingold campaign finance act violated the First Amendment by restricting corporations from funding political messages in the run-up to elections.
Pelosi: House lacks votes to pass the Senate version of Obamacare
Pelosi threw cold water on the idea that the House could muster enough support to pass the Senate’s health bill, which includes a number of provisions liberals in the House find distasteful.
Obama looks to limit bank size, seeks new regulation
President Barack Obama, eager to harness and redirect voter anger over bank bailouts, is ramping up his war on Wall Street Thursday by pushing tougher regulation of big banks.
Is the market on the brink of a major correction?
Analysis from CNBC
And, finishing up with a nice opinion piece, “Rethinking Bush”
Why Didn’t the President Fight Back Against the MSM?
The loss by the once-favored Coakley for the seat that the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy held for nearly half a century signaled big political problems for the president’s party this fall when House, Senate and gubernatorial candidates are on the ballot nationwide.
It was just a little over a week ago that a Rasmussen Poll showed Scott Brown had closed to within single digits of the heavily favored Coakley. By the time the Democrats realized the momentum had shifted, it was too late. Even a last-minute campaign swing by President Obama himself did nothing to stem the tide.
Best headline so far … “A Blue State Turns BROWN”

The USDA has released the annual crop production estimates for 2009.
The numbers show “record” production.
I call B.S.
I hope I’m wrong, but here’s one reason I’m skeptical.
ETA: Here’s another. The official government reporting is 180 degrees opposite of real-time reports on the ground.
Somebody is lying. I’ve got a bad feeling about this.
Update: USDA releases report.
“Heavy snow in parts of the Midwest could cause as much as 100 million bushels of the 2009 corn crop to be lost. According to analysts in several Corn Belt states, a significant number of acres were yet to be harvested when snow came in December. Now, with the storm that struck the first week of January adding more snow, a lot of the corn still in the field will be there for the rest of the winter. It likely won’t be harvested until spring and significant yield loss will occur.” (source)

Thank goodness our Homeland Security people are on the job after the EunuchBomber botched attack on Christmas Day. We certainly don’t want to have independent war correspondents passing through our airports without revealing their annual income:
Got arrested at the Seattle airport for refusing to say how much money I make. (The uniformed ones say I was not “arrested”, but they definitely handcuffed me.) Their videos and audios should show that I was polite, but simply refused questions that had nothing to do with national security. Port authority police eventually came — they were professionals — and rescued me from the border bullies.
When they handcuffed me, I said that no country has ever treated me so badly. Not China. Not Vietnam. Not Afghanistan. Definitely not Singapore or India or Nepal or Germany, not Brunei, not Indonesia, or Malaysia, or Kuwait or Qatar or United Arab Emirates. No county has treated me with the disrespect can that can be expected from our border bullies.
