Pot Meet Kettle

Largest Donor to Obama Super PAC Calls Mormonism a ‘Cult’ | The Weekly Standard.

Okay, so Bill Maher gave $1 million to the Obama Super PAC. It takes cult power to get anyone to donate that kind of money to anything, and Maher appears to be a charter member of the cult of Obama. And refusing to accept that donations to the Mormon church are charity is an indictment of charity in general. Most charities are based on or affiliated with religious groups. Why single out Mormons? Why not attack Catholics or any other religious group that has a charitable program? And how would Maher know that Obama is well-endowed or is that just his fantasy? I sense some longing there.

Steve Jobs and the Can’t Do President

Steve Jobs: Obama’s focus on excuses “infuriated” him – Political Hotsheet – CBS News

Jobs told Isaacson he was not impressed with the president after their meeting, in part because of Mr. Obama’s focus on what is not possible, rather than what is possible.

“The president is very smart. But he kept explaining to us reasons why things can’t get done,” Jobs told Isaacson. “It infuriates me.”

Teleprompter for the President’s Hand

Obama’s signature: Is it real or is it autopenned? – Yahoo! News

For decades, presidents of both parties have let an autopen do some of the heavy lifting when it comes to scrawling their signatures. The machine was recently put to use signing a bill into law, apparently a first.

Israeli Quicksand

Lawmakers: Obama speech silent on Iran, Syria while criticizing U.S. allies Israel, Bahrain

Both Democrats and Republicans said they were stunned by President Barack Obama’s refusal to call for regime change in either Iran or Syria. Instead, they cited Obama’s severe criticism of Israel, including questioning whether the Jewish state was a democracy.

Hamas said it wouldn’t recognize the Israeli “occupation” and that it, too, rejected Mr. Obama’s reference to the 1967 borders. “It is a mistake to consider the U.S. as an honest sponsor for the so—called peace process,” spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said.
