For some reason, the ObamaMedia seems intent on asking Rick Perry questions about Barack Obama’s birth certificate. Unfortunately for Perry, he has stumbled over different ways on how to answer, or not answer, the question. One of those ways is by joking around about the issue … even though, in all seriousness, he says that there is no doubt that Obama’s birth certificate is real and he is a citizen. But this is not the good enough for the ObamaMedia who took offense to Perry’s joking about the birth certificate. Naturally, they made it an issue of race. MSNBC contributor Toure says …
"It's absolutely racist, without question. It suggests that he is other. It indexes white as truly American. And he is not one of us. And it just takes coded language for everybody to get the message that he is not one of us. The whole Muslim flirtation that other people engaged in is the same thing. He is not one of us. He is not a normative American. Why are we saying this about him? We didn't have these questions about Clinton, Bush, Bush, Reagan, etc. We just wonder suddenly about Obama. "Is he really an American? Mmm, I don't know." It's because he's black. "It's a coded way of saying he's black, don't vote for him."Just add this one to the list of ways that criticism of Obama can be construed as raaacist.

Another Obama-Backed Green Energy Company Goes Bust - Gateway Pundit
Another green energy company that was awarded stimulus cash for its survival went belly up this past week. The Obama Administration awarded $43 million in conditional loan guarantees from the Department of Energy to Beacon Power in June 2009. Now it’s bankrupt.
Yahoo Finance reported, via Free Republic:Beacon Power Corp filed for bankruptcy on Sunday, just a year after the energy storage company received a $43 million loan guarantee from a controversial Department of Energy program.The bankruptcy comes about two months after Solyndra — a solar panel maker with a $535 million loan guarantee — also filed for Chapter 11, creating a political embarrassment for the administration of President Barack Obama, which has championed the loans as a way to create “green energy” jobs.Beacon Power drew down $39 million of its government-guaranteed loan to fund a portion of a $69 million, 20-megawatt flywheel energy storage plant in Stephentown, New York.
There are several key differences between the two loans, an Energy Department spokesman said on Sunday, noting the Beacon plant continues to operate, unlike Solyndra, which shut down shortly before filing for bankruptcy.The Energy Department also had agreed to restructure Solyndra’s debt in a last-ditch effort to keep the company alive, a deal which put taxpayers behind $75 million in private investment. But for the Beacon project, the government loan is the first debt the company must pay, the spokesman said.

The GOP Jobs Plan Vs. Obama's.
President Obama put on his game face Saturday night when he praised former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and told the audience that she will be back in her old job come January 2013.
Obama was speaking at the National Italian American Foundation gala and was introduced by Pelosi, at which time he showered his praise on the former Speaker.
“I am biased, but I think Nancy was one of the best Speakers of the House this country ever had.” “She was no doubt the best Italian American Speaker of the House we ever had. And I believe that she will be the best Speaker of the House again in 2013.”

The latest liberal campaign to discredit the most conservative Supreme Court justice...
The Supreme Court could decide how it will handle the health care reform lawsuits as early as November 10. Supporters of the law are busy filing amicus briefs, making legal arguments -- and trying to disqualify justices likely to find President Obama's signature legislation unconstitutional.
Liberals have disliked the idea of Clarence Thomas voting on the Supreme Court for 20 years now. The current drumbeat began in February when 73 House Democrats demanded the justice recuse himself from any case involving the health care law because of his wife's work as a lobbyist and conservative activist. The ringleader of this effort was that ethical giant, then Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY).
"As members of Congress, we were surprised by recent revelations of your financial ties to leading organizations dedicated to lobbying against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act," the Democrats wrote in a letter. "We write today to respectfully ask that you maintain the integrity of this court and recuse yourself from any deliberations on the constitutionality of this act."
Evidently untroubled by Justice Elena Kagan's work as solicitor general for the Obama administration, Weiner's warriors continued, "Given these facts, there is a strong conflict between the Thomas household's financial gain through your spouse's activities and your role as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court."
Weiner is gone, but apparently not forgotten. This fall a group of 20 House Democrats excoriated Thomas for filing disclosure forms that failed to mention his wife's tenure as a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation. Wags might be tempted to joke that this could actually bias Thomas in favor of the individual mandate, but the Democrats weren't in a joking mood.
