    What it doesn't say is that BO wants to use these camps to round up Tea Party folks and anyone else who disagrees with his policies.

    I was being sarcastic...if we thought nuclear weapons in the hands of Iran or North Korea was scary, imagine if ISIS gets some nukes...

    You should write a letter to Hitlery and ask her why she voted for it.

    Columnist Larry Elder: "Roll Call, the publication that covers Congress, writes: 'In its latest report on [ObamaCare], the Congressional Budget Office said it is no longer possible to assess the overall fiscal impact of the law.' ... What?! Again, how important was the 2010 CBO 'score,' delivered on the eve of the Obamacare vote? Vital. Critical. Indispensible. Roll Call reminds us, 'For Democratic lawmakers who were hesitant to sign onto the sweeping 2010 healthcare law, one of the most powerful selling points (emphasis added) was that the Affordable Care Act would actually reduce the federal budget deficit, despite the additional costs of extending health insurance coverage to the uninsured.' To the pile of broken Obamacare promises, we now add another."

    As recently as 2009, then-CIA Director Michael Hayden said, "Al-Qaida is on the verge of a strategic defeat in Iraq." Yet in just a few short years, we have watched the entire Middle East melt down in the "Arab Spring" after Barack Obama sounded the retreat from Iraq and Afghanistan, falsely claiming that al-Qaida and Islamic terrorism were "on the run" after Osama bin Laden's termination.

    Indeed, jihadis with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) have now seized the key Iraqi cities of Mosul and Tikrit -- after retaking Fallujah in January. Baghdad is next. According to an American counterterrorism official, "The group looks at Syria and Iraq as one interchangeable battlefield, and its ability to shift resources and personnel across the border has measurably strengthened its position in both theaters." If the U.S. still had a sizable troop presence in Iraq, it's possible -- if not likely -- that Iraq would be stable today. Perhaps even Syria would be. Instead, the region has paid a high price for BO's Hope 'n' Change, as al-Qaida didn't die just because Obama said it had.

    Seems to me that BO's policies are widening the gap between both sides of the aisle. Not that Bush's decisions didn't do the same thing of course. I would hope that congress would eventually pay attention to the Constitution when creating and amending legislation. Not likely to happen anytime soon.

    Columnist Michelle Malkin: "[I]llegal alien amnesties guarantee two things: more illegal immigration and more Democratic voters. Now we have a White House forcing U.S. military bases to provide interminable benefits and services to illegal aliens for political gain, while said White House evades responsibility for allowing military veterans to die waiting for the most basic of medical services. And where's the GOP 'leadership' in this country? Doing the bidding of the amnesty-loving U.S. Chamber of Commerce and demonizing Republican candidates at every level who are sick and tired of giving away the store and the country. God save us from bipartisanship."

    Columnist Burt Prelutsky: "[W]hile nine million American vets have to make do with 267,000 VA employees -- not nearly all of whom are medical professionals -- 150 Muslim terrorists at Gitmo have 100 doctors and nurses at their beck and call. It begs the question: What sort of people are we that we treat the creeps trying to kill us better than we treat the men and women who risked their lives and lost their limbs trying to defend us?"

    Comedian Conan O'Brien: "In a new interview, Hillary Clinton said that she and her husband were dead broke when they left the White House. Hillary said things were so bad the two of them had to share a bedroom."

    The judge for Los Angeles Superior Court, Rolf Treu, found California's laws governing the hiring, firing and awarding tenure to teachers unconstitutional under California's constitution. Here's to hoping this ruling may lead to more lawsuits in other states.

    "The evidence is compelling," Treu wrote. "Indeed, it shocks the conscience." The decision said between 1% and 3%, or 2,750 to 8,250, of California teachers are "grossly ineffective" and the laws keep them in school, affecting their students for a long time. Of course, the leaders of the teachers unions are whining. Dennis Van Roekel, president of the National Education Association, said the decision will "make it harder to attract and retain quality teachers and ignores all research that shows experience is a key factor in effective teaching." Respect is earned, not given. A young, hardworking teacher will do more to help his or her students than an old burnout. I'm still not in any hurry to take my daughter out of private school...

    Remember when BO said "[T]he American combat mission in Iraq has ended. Operation Iraqi Freedom is over, and the Iraqi people now have lead responsibility for the security of their country"?

    How's BO's cut-and-run strategy working out? "Insurgents seized control early Tuesday of most of the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, including the provincial government headquarters, offering a powerful demonstration of the mounting threat posed by extremists to Iraq's teetering stability," reports The Washington Post. American-trained Iraqi security forces reportedly dropped the weapons and fled, and al-Qaida now controls virtually the entire northern province of Ninevah.

    According to Robert Ford, Obama's former ambassador to Syria, the resurgence of al-Qaida in Iraq is fueled by cells out of Syria: "These al-Qaida offshoots ... now pose a potential threat to our security," he said. "These extremists enjoy a sanctuary from which they may mount attacks against Europe or the United States." Obama really has worked to ensure that America's incredible sacrifice in Iraq was for nothing.

    In 2016, the Congressional Budget Office expects four million people will pay the ObamaCare tax for not buying health insurance. A quarter of those people are poor -- 200,000 people below the poverty line and 800,000 low-income earners. This is exactly the kind of situation a fresh-faced Barack Obama said he wanted to avoid in 2008. "You can have a situation, which we are seeing right now in the state of Massachusetts, where people are being fined for not having purchased health care, but choose to accept the fine because they still can't afford it even with the subsidies," Obama said in a debate with Hillary Clinton. "They are then worse off -- they then have no health care and are paying a fine above and beyond that." Obama went on to say the insurance companies would be happy for ObamaCare because it forced people to buy from them. Funny that ObamaCare embodies everything he opposed then...

  • Marie Harf, a deputy State Department spokesperson, isn't helping BO's case. In fact, her performance is eerily reminiscent of a "Saturday Night Live" spoof of the administration. She told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell yesterday that the Taliban Five released for Bowe Bergdahl are "gentlemen" who wouldn't return to the fight against America. "Under this administration," she explained, "we've put in very stringent processes to determine that we can sufficiently mitigate the risk that the terrorists, the possibility that these gentlemen will go back to the battlefield." In other remarks at a press conference, Harf dismissed the idea again: "Let's say the worst case scenario -- these five guys do return [to the battlefield]. In no way would that substantially change the Taliban's order of battle on the ground. That's just not, um, even logical." What's not logical is to think five dangerous jihadis were a good trade for an alleged Army deserter.

    Columnist Burt Prelutsky: "(1) A liberal is someone who thinks Republicans are waging a war on women, but that the Muslim world isn't. (2) A liberal is someone who says to a pregnant woman: 'Don't smoke, it'll hurt your baby,' but tells her it's quite okay to abort that same baby. (3) A liberal is someone who thinks Fox News lies, but Obama doesn't. (4) A liberal is someone who lives in a gated community or behind a high wall, but says that a border fence won't work. (5) A liberal is someone who wails about 'corporate welfare,' but thinks it's great that Obama bailed out General Motors to save union contracts and blew a billion tax dollars on certain-to-fail green energy companies in exchange for campaign contributions. (6) A liberal is someone who protested the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and proclaimed the Patriot Act fascistic, until Barack Obama took office."

    Comedian Argus Hamilton: "Susan Rice went on the Sunday talk shows to defend the administration for trading five Taliban leaders for a soldier who went AWOL. This time she covered her tracks. Susan Rice declared that Bergdahl served with honor and distinction, but she didn't say for which side."
