I mean, really.

So what if a former FBI agent misled Congress about inappropriately using his authority as an FBI agent.

You people act all surprised about someone abusing Federal authority in this administration like it's something new.

At least it's a different aspect this time, from all appearances, he's not a tax cheat.

But it does follow a pattern. Put tax cheats in charge of tax policy and put someone who's abused his power as a Federal officer in charge of the TSA. Makes sense to me.

The science is settled

Isn't that what Algore has told us ad nauseum??

Well apparently, as we've been saying all along.... the science is NOT settled.
No Rise of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Fraction in Past 160 Years, New Research
Hopefully, the recent climategate email fiasco will move this debate back into the realm of science uncorrupted by politics and money.... I'm not entirely hopeful, but at least for the time being, that looks like at least a possibility.

Boo Freakin' Hoo

After a sleepless, overnight flight to Oslo to accept the Nobel Peace Prize earlier this month, President Barack Obama made a not altogether surprising admission. He was tired.

Who could blame him? The president was on his ninth foreign trip to his 21st country; he added a 10th trip the following week. The year had been bookended by the two most intense periods of his young presidency — the early decisions to bail out the nation’s banks and automobile industry, steps the president deemed unpopular but necessary, and his December orders to deploy 30,000 additional U.S. troops to fight the war in Afghanistan.

Throw in an unemployment rate in the double-digits, a health care bill still stuck on Capitol Hill, and last-minute negotiations on a global climate change agreement, and aides say it’s no secret that the president is tired, and looking forward to recharging during his year-end family vacation in Hawaii.

Not that the commander in chief really thinks he can escape his duties, even on an island. Amid golf, tennis, gym workouts and dinner, Obama has been called on to monitor the airliner attack in Detroit last Friday and what appeared to be another attack on Sunday — that incident turned out to be a false alarm. On Monday, Obama worked out in the morning and played tennis before making his first public remarks on airline security, then hit the golf course.

So much for putting aside the stress of work. Obama himself has been candid about the pressures of being president during what he has called an “extraordinary year.”

“You have a convergence of factors that have made this a difficult year not so much for me but for the American people,” he said in an interview with CBS News last month. “Absolutely that weighs on me.”

The first 20 or so seconds of this video about sum it up!

Dude, you volunteered for the job. Stop whining!

It's an easy solution

Instead of punishing normal folks who aren't interested in getting to paradise and their 72 virgins, the solution to the seemingly endless stream of muslims willing to blow themselves up is an easy one.

Muslims don't fly on American flagged airplanes. If you don't have the stones to take the step necessary to protect the American flying public, then just drop the charade of the TSA searching granny and her walker.

If you want to be PC about it, you could say that muslim males aged 18-50 can't fly on American flagged aircraft and let muslim women, children, and old timers fly. At least up to the point that they also start blowing themselves up. But the sad fact of the matter is that muslim males in that demographic constitute nearly 100% of all suicide bombers or wanna be suicide bombers around the world.

Keep them isolated from the rest of the population and by and large, your problem is solved.
