While the world is on fire: Obama Fills out His NCAA March Madness Bracket

This boy-king is clueless…

Okay, that’s not all he’s doing. “Obama will tape interviews from the Map Room with KOAT Albuquerque, KDKA Pittsburgh and WVEC Hampton Roads on education reform and the need to fix No Child Left Behind.” More at National Review

Wow:

Dangerous levels of radiation leaking from a crippled nuclear plant forced Japan to order 140,000 people to seal themselves indoors Tuesday after an explosion and a fire dramatically escalated the crisis spawned by a deadly tsunami.

In a nationally televised statement, Prime Minister Naoto Kan said radiation had spread from the four stricken reactors of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant along Japan’s northeastern coast. The region was shattered by Friday’s 9.0-magnitude earthquake and the ensuing tsunami that is believed to have killed more than 10,000 people, plunged millions into misery and pummeled the world’s third-largest economy.

Via Mike Allen’s newsletter, we see in the first line how the leader of the free world will spend his day during this awful crisis:

President Obama is taping his NCAA picks today, and they’ll be revealed tomorrow on ESPN.

Japan faces an almost unparalleled crisis, Libya is in civil war, and we’re having another budget showdown after running up a $222.5 billion deficit in the 28 days of February. And after last week’s bullying summit, Obama is spending this week talking education reform.

Maddow Uncovers Republican Conspiracy to Only Let Voters Vote

I just love it when Rach takes a step out on the ledge that reveals the smug little twit is just that. I really don’t have the stomach to watch her pompous little arrogant face. But hey, News Real did it for me. Go to their blog if you can’t take more than a couple of minutes of her. A fun read. We need to have a smile now and then! Here tis:

Rachel Maddow’s Conspiracy of the Night on Thursday revealed a sinister play by Republicans to suppress Democrat voters.  Horrors!  Was it to stand outside the polls with weapons like this guy and yell at people?  Maybe it was to employ German shepherds like this prominent Democrat did?

Nope, it’s worse.  In order for Republicans to allow you to vote you must:

  1. Prove who you are.
  2. Register in time so election officials can prove that’s really who you are.
  3. Not be a convicted felon.

Pass the smelling salts!  It’s practically a return to the days of the poll tax!  So why are Democrats so dead set on having people without identification vote?  Hmmmm

Cantor: CR Will Permit Funding of Obamacare

In case you have missed the low-level energy response that Reps Steve King and Michelle Bachmann have received regarding defunding Obamacare, CNS picks up the pathetic response of Cantor. I wonder why we worked so hard to give these wimpy no-gonad Republicans a chance at leadership. Leadership? What a joke. Call you Representative today and tell them no money now or ever for Obamacare. This is our last-ditch effort and now is the time. Vote no to the latest CR.

“We have to write my language into the CR and take a stand,” King told CNSNews.com in an interview last week. “Stare the president in the eye and say: Mr. President, we are going to make sure that this government has the resources to function, but we’re also are going to make sure that there are no resources to implement or carry out the provisions of Obamacare, and if you should choose to shutdown the government in order to preserve socialized medicine that has your name on it, that is your choice not ours, but we are not going to allow that unconstitutional bill to be enacted on deceptive funding on our watch.”

 House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said on Monday that the new continuing resolution (CR) the House will consider this week to keep the federal government-funded will permit the Obama administration to spend money on the implementation of Obamacare.

At his Capitol Hill press briefing today, CNSNews.com asked Majority Leader Cantor: “Are you or are you not going to use this CR to cut off that $105.5 billion in Obamacare funding? Representatives Steve King and Michele Bachmann have said that they want you to do that, sent a letter saying please use the CR as an opportunity to cut off that funding. Are you going to do that?”

Cantor said: “What we’ve said earlier is that we are operating consistent with House rules, which in this CR means [limiting the bill to] discretionary funding for this year. What I’ve also said here is that we are in another temporary stop-gap mode and the intention is for this year–and going forward to next year–we intend to starve the agencies of the funding to implement the full force and effect of the Obamacare bill.”
