From the Secret Service to the Kardashians, everything was fair game at the annual White House Correspondents' dinner. But the featured item on the menu was dog ... jokes -- which figured, since Barack Obama's old admission to eating dog as a child was just recently revived as a campaign sideshow. "Last week we learned that the president's two favorite steaks are rib eye and seeing eye," cracked comedian Jimmy Kimmel, the evening's host. But even Kimmel got a taste that it's tough to work a room better than the Obama himself. The president touched on Sarah Palin's recent hosting of "Today" to segue into the night's toughest line: "What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? A pit bull is delicious."
A Choice, Not an Echo - There are big differences between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney
Mr. Obama's beliefs, as we have seen over the past three years, produce a permanent and growing federal deficit, permanent and growing federal spending, higher taxes for wealthier Americans, and permanent and growing government interference in how individuals, families, and businesses can handle their affairs. The deficits in his administration have come to $4 trillion in his first three years in office.
Mr. Romney's thinking is very different, stressing more innovation, more individual choices and lower government spending. He proposes to get federal spending to less than 20% of GDP in his first term in office. So perhaps more so than in most elections, which candidate becomes the next president make a large difference in the way our citizens see the course of America's future.
If Our President Were Muslim He Would ‘Get Something Done’: Farrakhan Encourages Obama to Convert to Islam!
According to the Hon. Minister Louis Farrakhan:
- President Obama has had to endure hardships that no other white president has
- Obama has been called a “racist, an anti-Semite, a socialist, a communist, a foreigner, an alien and they’ve even called him a terrorist”
- The president might as well “join” Islam, given the ridicule
- If the President became a Muslim he “really would get something done”
- No one care’s about the experience of Republican presidential hopefuls because “they’re white”
- “To Hell with you” if you are a Republican — “If we want to vote for a brother because he is black, that’s our business”
- It is an honor to vote for “one of our own kind”
‘Fucking Bullshit’: Actor Jon Lovitz Doubles Down on His Anti-Obama Diatribe — ‘He’s President, Not King!’
Actor and comedian Jon Lovitz caught international attention after he unleashed an expletive-driven commentary about President Barack Obama and taxation. In the wake of the media coverage of his controversial words on the matter, Lovitz has responded with surprise over the fact that his comments gained such intense media traction.

The Chicago Jesus did not make the decision to get Bin Laden after all - Flopping Aces
AlsoIt’s been almost a year since President Obama’s leadership and foreign policy bona fides were allegedly established by the operation that killed Osama bin Laden. A campaign film narrated by Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks tells of the president’s alleged solitary, agonizing decision.
With apologies to Vice President Biden, maybe President Obama doesn’t carry quite as big a stick as Joe would lead us to believe.As reported by Big Peace, Time magazine has obtained a memo written by Leon Panetta, then-director of the Central Intelligence Agency and now-Secretary of Defense, that says “operational decision-making and control” was really in the hands of William McRaven, a three-star admiral and former Navy SEAL.“The timing, operational decision-making and control are in Adm. McRaven’s hands,” the memo says. “The approval is provided on the risk profile presented to the president. Any additional risks are to be brought back to the president for his consideration. The direction is to go in and get bin Laden and, if he is not there, to get out.”
In other words, it was McRaven’s call to pull the trigger or not on the raid.
But he got Bin Laden! - Boortz
"The truth – as we’ve revealed on the show many times – is that all Barack Obama did was to get out of the way and let these men do their job."********
HHS Sebelius Forced to Admit Total Constitutional Ignorance of Health Mandate Legal Issues
Democrats have avoided passing a budget for three straight years. What's more, they are surprisingly open in admitting they won't pass one this year, either, in order to avoid an embarrassing vote before this fall's election.
In the three years since the Senate last passed a budget, the federal government has spent $10.4 trillion and accumulated $4.5 trillion in debt, an amount that equals $13,000 in new debt for every individual American and $34,000 per family.

Obama Losing Rock-star Status Among Young Voters
Last week, Barack Obama delivered speeches at universities in Chapel Hill, N.C., Iowa City, Iowa, and Boulder, Colo. The trip was, press secretary Jay Carney assured us, official government business, not political campaigning.
It’s part of a pattern. Neil Munro of the Daily Caller has counted 130 appearances by the president, vice president, their spouses, White House officials, and Cabinet secretaries at colleges and universities since spring 2011.
Obviously, the Obama campaign strategists are worried that he cannot duplicate his 66 to 32 percent margin among young voters back in 2008.
Recent surveys of young people show inconsistent results. Gallup’s tracking shows Obama leading Mitt Romney 64 to 29 percent, and a Harvard Institute of Politics poll shows him leading Romney 43 to 26 percent among those who said they had an opinion.
But a March survey of 18- to 24 year olds by the Public Religion Research Institute showed Obama ahead of “a Republican” by only 48 to 41 percent. Only 52 percent had favorable opinions of Obama, and 43 percent had unfavorable opinions.
Where the surveys seem to be in accord is that young voters are less engaged, less likely to vote and less enthusiastic about Obama than in the days when he was proclaiming, “We are the change we are seeking.”

DRT --- and for those of you who don’t know, that means Dead Right There - From Boortz
"Our pretty perps decided it would be a good idea to burglarize a home while the occupants were away. The perps may have been pretty --- but they weren’t all that smart. Seems the house they chose was home to two Marines – and the Marines came home with another male while the perps were still trying to figure out how to get the flat screen disconnected. Well, as you might suspect, a certain amount of mayhem ensued in the home – and when the smoke cleared the Braided Boys were both DRT --- and for those of you who don’t know, that means Dead Right There. The Marines?The Criminalization of Bad Mothers
“Treated and released,” as they say.I know it’s not nice, but I just LOVE it when things turn out this way. The taxpayers are saved the cost of a trial and incarceration, and the Marines get some additional training under their belts. Plus … Maurice and Diego will never bother another law-abiding person again. Stick ‘em in a glad bag and set them on a curb somewhere."
*********As family members came in and out of the room and one daytime show slid into another — “The People’s Court,” “Intervention,” “Jerry Springer,” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” — Kimbrough talked about her arrest following the death of her third child, Timmy Jr. Born premature at 25 weeks on April 29, 2008, Timmy Jr. weighed 2 pounds 1 ounce, and lived only 19 minutes. When Kimbrough tested positive for methamphetamine, her two daughters were swiftly removed from her custody, and for 90 days, she was allowed only supervised visits. Social services mandated parenting classes and drug treatment.That would have been a typical response in most places, but Alabama is different.
