So What Did That Senate Intelligence Report Actually Say?

First, let’s summarize the six conclusions that are unfavorable to the administration:
- Two are complaints about the scarcity of footnotes and caveats,
- Two are objections to single statements (both with substantial extenuating circumstances),
- One largely deals with subjective “implications” and things not actually said,
- And one is problematic.

Be sure to remember that, for the first time since it was established the Democrats stated in a memo that they intended to use the Intelligence Committee as a political tool, possibly in violation of Senate ethics. In the past this was considered dangerous to the nation as the committee was far to important to national security. But that doesn't really seem to matter to Democrats anymore.

Check out the story, the Democrats seem to have followed through with their plan!

Obama's A 'Lightworker' -- Really, That's Not Racist!

Here’s where it gets gooey. Many spiritually advanced people I know (not coweringly religious, mind you, but deeply spiritual) identify Obama as a Lightworker, that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of relating and connecting and engaging with this bizarre earthly experiment. These kinds of people actually help us evolve. They are philosophers and peacemakers of a very high order, and they speak not just to reason or emotion, but to the soul.

Never forget, the guy who wrote these words is precisely the type who, in the same breath, can deride conservatives as being soft-headed and overly inclined to hero-worship in contrast to his own bad-ass, irreverent, liberal self, and then turn around and call Barack Obama a “Lightworker” who’s going to change human consciousness.
Yea, yea, yea, Carter did those things too and left America and the Dems in the dark.

Democrats To Blame For Gas Prices!

For several decades, the Democratic Party has pursued policies designed to drive up the cost of petroleum, and therefore gas at the pump. Remarkably, the Democrats don't seem to have taken much of a political hit from the current spike in gas prices. Probably that's because most people don't realize how different the two parties' energy policies have been.

Congressman Roy Blunt put together these data to highlight the differences between House Republicans and House Democrats on energy policy:

ANWR Exploration House Republicans: 91% Supported House Democrats: 86% Opposed

House Republicans: 97% Supported
House Democrats: 78% Opposed

Oil Shale Exploration
House Republicans: 90% Supported
House Democrats: 86% Opposed

Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Exploration
House Republicans: 81% Supported
House Democrats: 83% Opposed

Refinery Increased Capacity
House Republicans: 97% Supported
House Democrats: 96% Opposed


91% of House Republicans have historically voted to increase the production of American-made oil and gas.

86% of House Democrats have historically voted against increasing the production of American-made oil and gas.
