Does Dan Rather Fact Check Hardball?

The other night, Chris Matthews had a feeling about President Obama’s birth certificate. He did not indicate which body part was affected this time, but the feeling apparently resolved itself into a sense of certainty with regard to Mr. Obama’s birthplace. Not surprisingly, President Obama’s explanation was air tight for Mr. Matthews. More objective analysis would suggest that even though the proffered evidence is not air tight, Mr. Matthews may not be getting enough oxygen.

It would hardly be unusual for a baby to born outside of a hospital in Hawaii in 1961. Given that Hawaii is an island chain, births outside of hospitals are probably not unusual even today and issuing birth certificates for those children is most likely a routine matter. It is not hard to imagine how one could obtain a Hawaiian birth certificate for a baby born outside the state.

 The recently issued Certificate of Live Birth and the published birth announcements, while offering irrefutable proof to Mr. Matthews, are not conclusive evidence of where Mr. Obama was born.


Why Can’t President Obama Apologize?

President Obama, let me be clear, incorrectly claimed that Henry Louis Gates, Jr. was arrested on suspicion of burglary. Unfortunately, President Obama lacks the integrity to apologize for his own misdeeds, preferring to limit his apologies to the service of slandering others.

Obama, Gates: Clueless

Professor Gates thought he won lottery –  a police officer, a WHITE police officer, sought to discern if Harvard University Professor Gates was a burglary suspect in Gates own home!

President Obama, always confident and sure, convicted the police officer of misdeeds despite the facts.

Blinded by self regard, both men have embarrassed themselves over this incident.

President Obama Speaks the Truth

Freudian slip? Teleprompter malfunction? Who knows, but President Obama manages to get the truth out on Health Care Reform in this link.

That 70’s Show

In case there wasn’t enough overwhelming evidence of the Obama Administration’s complete lack of new ideas, the AP, through Breibart, reports that President Obama is seeking price controls for medical costs.

Ooh! Ooh! Mr. Kotter! I know how this one turns out!

Are the Studios at NPR Too Close to the Transmitters?

On Fox News Sunday today, Mara Liasson of NPR put forth the  idea that all income that is not taxed, is subsidized. The context was a discussion of health insurance benefits provided by employers.

I’d recommend reading the transcripts for some gems of eqaul quality from Juan Williams. I’d list some here, but Mr. Williams was overwhelming with his performance today.

Are the recording studios at NPR too close to the powerful electromagnetic fields of the transmitters? Just wondering.

The Post Sells Access, Part 2 of 2 – The Publisher Stonewalls

Katherine Weymouth Publisher of The Wahington Post, wrote a letter to the readers blaming the  author of a “flyer” with mistating the context of the events. No mention of why money was involved.
