Obama’s kinder, gentler “Death Panels”

Truth is in short supply in Washington.

That is why recent statements made by Donald Berwick, President Obama’s Nominee to head the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, are both refreshing and chilling.

Here’s what Dr. Berwick had to say in a 2009 interview with Biotechnology Healthcare:

“The decision is not whether or not we will ration care – the decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open.” Continue reading “Obama’s kinder, gentler “Death Panels””

Why the GOP Elite Despises Sarah Palin

The GOP was the Grand Old Party.  Now it’s the Gray Old Party and no about of Grecian Formula can hide the obvious.

Somewhere along the way, the GOP adopted an unofficial rule that says you run for office, bring home expensive pork barrel projects to your state, have a few roads and bridges named after you,  campaign for others, and when you are old and gray and have enough political chits to call in, it becomes your turn to be the party’s nominee for president of the United State.

Sarah Palin: Dumb like a Fox

She didn’t have time to do Meet the Press or This Week or any of the other big name political shows that are considered a “must” by political insiders. So where was Sarah Palin?

Any bobble, no matter how slight, will be in bold headlines tomorrow.

While the mainstream media is willing to overlook major gaffs from Joe Biden, the slightest hesitation from Palin is seen as proof positive that she is the empty-headed, backwoods bimbo from Wasilla it has tried to make her out to be. Continue reading “Hey, Sarah: Time to go for the Kill!”

Palin: It’s all about the “O”s

I will not lose a night’s sleep worrying about the fact that the bright, articulate,
winsome Sarah Palin could be a heartbeat away from the presidency.

Sarah Palin is the only one on either ticket who has any executive “real world” experience – the only one of the four who has ever met a payroll or had bottom line responsibility.

There are those who belittle the responsibility she had as mayor of Wasilla, or as the governor of Alaska.    They shouldn’t.  Continue reading “Palin: It’s all about the “O”s”
