The Morning Links (5/6)

These are the morning links for May 6, 2011:

Obama changed his mind and didn’t do a speech at Ground Zero. One might hypothesize he realized what poor taste the entire trip was, or just maybe a poor turn out to see him. I think the latter. Given the way he was treating those he did speak to, I can’t blame people for not showing. It was a big photo-op. Related: More proof of the egomania. Also, this doesn’t fit in the ‘Obama decisiveness’ narrative – CIA agent lived next door to Bin Laden for months.

Obama got a bounce in the polls – independent vote actually dropped. Related: Maybe that is because people believe Obama is a Socialist, or it could be they aren’t stupid and know this – “During Bush’s term, gas prices went down 9 percent, adjusted for inflation. Yet, preposterously, he was excoriated for allegedly colluding with “big oil” to drive up prices. When prices spiked later in his term, he took proactive steps to increase our supply and reduce prices, and they worked. But Obama has taken action to impede conventional energy sources and shove us into alternative ones. Even so, liberals ignore any possible causal links.”

If  it’s proven that Jarrett and Obama actively tried to stop raid on OBL as it is starting to look like, Obama can wave goodbye to 2012.

Tax funded NPR hires lobby outfit to defend its taxpayer funding. What is it with progressives & the Left using our money against us?

Legal Eagles:

Kathleen Sebelius “Blah blah seniors die sooner with GOP plan blah blah blah”.

This exists: Flash mob bandits. They apparently stole A LOT.

Earthquakes, tornadoes, fires and floods – Oh My! It would seem Ming the Merciless is playing with his weather machine a bit much these days. Parts of Memphis now being evacuated.

The ROPAT mayhem and murder roundup:

Herman Cain kicked butt at the South Carolina Debate.

Conde Rice is not to be trifled with.

RedState Morning Brief for 5/6/11.

He’s nudging again. Wake up people – watch him try an Amnesty end run. Related: Obama’s gangster politics.

“U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton warned Friday that global shortages of food and spiraling prices threaten widespread destabilization and is urging immediate action to forestall a repeat of the 2007 and 2008 crisis that led to riots in dozens of countries around the developing world.” 1. Blame your boss 2. The rest of us knew this would happen months ago and you’re supposed to be one of the ‘in the know’ people? Jeez. Related: Top groceries then and now

Jobless claims hit 8 month high. Your bounce is over, Mr. President. We have come full circle – where are the jobs?

Outrageous. 11 Republican Senators Permit Former Planned Parenthood Director to Become Federal Judge. I’m disgusted and the Republicans don’t seem to understand, November 2010 could have easily been about them and with a stunt like this, 2012 will be.

“To put this in even more basic terms: it costs me 60% more to fill up my tank and get ‘cheap’ fast food today than it did before the Democrats took control of Congress.”

Question to the Lefties dog piling on each other to defend Judy Ancel: Exactly how was she taken out of context?

Dennis Miller on the Middle East from 2003 (some NSFW language) – Funny, it’s as valid today as it was then:
