Biden got one thing right

Besides the secret location of the Vice-Presidential safe room, which he told members of the press about over dinner.

Back in October 2008, Joey Biden told reporters the following about our Dear Leader:

“Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”
“I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate,”

We can add to the existing list of Iranian saber rattling against Israel and an ever more aggressive Communist Chinese navy, North Korea reasserting itself as a nuclear power.

The insane, show tune singing dictator of Communist North Korea apparently feels that the world’s remaining superpower is no long much a threat to him. He’s betting that Barry is more concerned with spending billions on his buddies at ACORN, millions on hookers, and spending the USA into the poor house to worry about little old Kim Il Jong. Sadly, he may be right.

Gun Crime drops in D.C. post Heller

That violent crimes committed by criminals with illegally obtained firearms has dropped since Washington, D.C.’s draconian anti-Civil Rights handgun ban was overturned should not be a surprise to anyone who actually studied the subject.
From the Washington Post Article:

The D.C. police department’s aggressive gun recovery efforts and the office of the attorney general’s coordinated emphasis on prosecuting gun-related crimes are showing strong results: In the past year, robberies with guns have decreased 12 percent; assaults with guns have decreased 14 percent; and overall violent crime has decreased by 5 percent in the District.

Hmmm…punishing the criminals and not the law abiding citizens seems to have a positive effect on society. Funny how the far left just can’t seem to grok that concept.

HT to Say Uncle and Mr. Reynolds.

Barry gets it wrong again

In his reaction speech to former VP Cheney yesterday, our Dear Leader said,

‘We are not going to release anyone if it would endanger our national security, nor will we release detainees within the United States who endanger the American people. As we make these decisions, bear in mind the following fact; nobody has ever escaped from one of our federal “supermax” prisons, which hold hundreds of convicted terrorists.”

This statement is a wonderful example of Clintonian word selection. It is a prime example of doubleplus good duckspeak. The Harvard Law School should be proud.

While nobody has ever escaped from a federal Supermax prison, our Dear Leader leaves out the very important fact that they are full to capacity.

Whoops! There I go again, injecting a dose of reality into a feel good BHO speech again!

By way of Ms. Malkin is this article from the Denver Post

Supermax’s approximately 480 concrete cells already are jammed with the likes of Oklahoma City bombing co-conspirator Terry Nichols, Atlanta Olympics bomber Eric Rudolph and other notorious domestic criminals. There also are 33 international terrorists, including Sept. 11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui, 1993 World Trade Center bombing mastermind Ramzi Yousef and failed airline shoe bomber Richard Reid.
Only one bed was not filled Thursday at Supermax, U.S. Bureau of Prisons spokeswoman Tracy Billingsley said.

Details like this are important, and one would hope that the President was aware of it. Which leads us the conclusion that the didn’t want the American people to know that he’s trying to pull another fast one.

Our Dear Leader is under pressure from his far left extremist base to close Camp Delta at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base. Unlike his far left extremist supporters, BHO has to deal with the actual reality of the situation, however distasteful that may be to him.

I blame George Bush

Here is yet another thing we can blame George W. Bush, 43rd President of the United States of American for.

Air Quality Improved During Bush Administration.

Among the findings: Carbon monoxide decreased by 39 percent, ozone by 6 percent, and sulfur dioxide by 32 percent.

“Pick any category you want and pollution levels are generally lower than they were seven years ago,” said Steven Hayward, the policy analyst who authored the report, titled “Index of Leading Environmental Indicators,” for the conservative think tank.

“(Environmental groups) said air pollution was out of control, but this was always more about politics than it was fact,” Hayward said.

…in looking over the data on air quality from the Bush years, Hayward notes that levels of most air pollutants decreased at a faster rate than they did during the Clinton administration.

That’s right kids, the Watermelons were playing politics rather than focusing on the environment.
