Bush Deficits. . .

. . . look pretty paltry after Obama's first year deficit. Well, it's only $1.42 TRILLION. Worst since WWII as a percentage of GDP.

Ol' BC tends to think we ain't seen nothin' yet.

Just a thought.

Fighting The War. . .Let's Get Our Guys Killed

A marine has a son. He too is a marine. The proud. The few. But now the son is dead. The dad, still a marine, had a problem with the way the Obama administration has chosen to proceed with the war in Afghanistan before it cost him his son.

Bernard's criticism is aimed at new rules of engagement imposed by Gen. Stanley
McChrystal, the senior American commander in Afghanistan, five weeks before
Joshua Bernard was killed. They limit the use of airstrikes and require troops
to break off combat when civilians are present, even if it means letting the
enemy escape. They also call for greater cooperation with the Afghan National
Under those rules, John Bernard said, Marines and soldiers are being
denied artillery and air support for fear of killing civilians, and the Taliban
is using that to its tactical advantage. In a letter to his congressman and
Maine's U.S. senators, Bernard condemned "the insanity of the current situation
and the suicidal position this administration has placed these warriors in."

Ol' BC isn't a big fan of what's going on in Afghanistan, but if we are going to send our soldiers into the mess at least let them play to win. When the enemy is using women and children on the front lines they have identified their values when it comes to human life. The Muslim extremists are essentially animals. They don't mind killing their own for "the cause."

We need to fight to win or get out of Dodge. This pussy-footing around is getting people killed.

Here's the MSNBC article.

Just an observation.

Global Warming?

As Ol' BC sits and ponders the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize and realizes that the Nobel committee has just defined itself as a political entity, along comes this little nugget.

If the snow sticks, it would be the earliest recorded measurable snowfall in
Chicago. The record was set just three years ago when it snowed on Oct. 12.

The record was a mere three (3) years ago? Wow! This must really irritate the algorians. Al Gore and his band of followers want you to believe that we are warming at a most alarming rate when the earth has actually been cooling for somewhere in the neighborhood of a decade.

Just an observation.

Losing Olympics Is Bush's Fault

That's what Illinois Senator Rowland Burris is saying. Everything that doesn't go Obama's way is Bush's fault. A losing presentation for the 2016 Olympics seems to be no exception. I guess that's one way to direct attention away from Obama's failures. This administration falls back on that trite summation every time something goes awry.

Did it ever occur to them that perhaps, just perhaps, the voters remember Atlanta? Could the fact that no country in South America has ever hosted an Olympics have weighed positively with the voters. Ol' BC had the vote figured out last week just watching reports on television.

At any rate, this administration might want to figure out some other alibi for their failures as this one is starting to lose it punch. Maybe they "inherited" a less than adequate presentation from Bush's two terms. One thought however - they could always blame a few of their future failures on Nixon.

Just a thought.
