Obambi – Pertinent Information Supplied

Is Obama actually going to get some real questions?  Looks like handling the press that is not kneeling down in fawning supplication isn’t as much fun:

An exasperated Barack Obama scurried away Monday from the toughest news conference of his campaign, telling reporters who kept shouting questions that he’d spent enough time on the grill.

“Come on! I just answered, like, eight questions,” Obama, looking surprised, told shouting reporters as he fled the room. “We’re running late.”

The first question was about a private talk an Obama economic adviser had with a Canadian official – reportedly saying that the harshness of Obama’s criticisms of the North American Free Trade Agreement was for political show.

Last week, Obama denied an initial media report about the conversation. But after a Canadian government memo surfaced, he acknowledged yesterday there was a conversation.

“When I gave you that information, that was the information that I had at the time,” he said. His camp still disputes the memo’s account of the discussion.

That was the information I had at the time?  Oh come on Bambi – nobody lets a Republican get away with that answer.

The questioning then turned to Obama’s links to ex-fund-raiser Tony Rezko, who went on trial in Chicago Monday on corruption charges. A reporter asserted Obama hadn’t fully answered journalists’ questions on Rezko.

Obama insisted he had – during a past news conference with Chicago media. But another persisted that questions remain unanswered, such as ones about fund-raisers Rezko held for him.

Obama replied, “These requests, I think, can just go on forever. …” He said the “pertinent” information had been provided.

When Obama declared the press conference over, one reporter yelled that he was dodging questions just minutes after claiming he wasn’t.

Oh yes – its all the fault of Hillary Clinton, those questions on Rezko, isn’t it Barry?

Abiding By Kyoto – Not!

World and U.S. opinion seems to revolve around who signed Kyoto rather than actual carbon dioxide emissions. Once again, stated intent trumps actual results. Can even the global warming believers possibly believe this treaty has anything to do with it?

One would think that countries that committed to the Kyoto treaty are doing a better job of curtailing carbon emissions. One would also think that the United States, the only country that does not even intend to ratify, keeps on emitting carbon dioxide at growth levels much higher than those who signed.
And one would be wrong.

  • Emissions worldwide increased 18.0%.
  • Emissions from countries that signed the treaty increased 21.1%.
  • Emissions from non-signers increased 10.0%.
  • Emissions from the U.S. increased 6.6%.
  • In fact, emissions from the U.S. grew slower than those of over 75% of the countries that signed Kyoto.  Below are the growth rates of carbon dioxide emissions, from 1997 to 2004, for a few selected countries, all Kyoto signers. (Remember, the comparative number for the U.S. is 6.6%.)
    • Maldives, 252%.
    • Sudan, 142%.
    • China, 55%.
    • Luxembourg, 43%
    • Iran, 39%.
    • Iceland, 29%.
    • Norway, 24%.
    • Russia, 16%.
    • Italy, 16%.
    • Finland, 15%.
    • Mexico, 11%.
    • Japan, 11%.
    • Canada, 8.8%.

    Free Speech – Not in Canada

    Nor in Europe, Africa, Asia, or South America. And all those with Bush Derangement Syndrome who blather on prove the point. You can freely speak and write in America – including the most base and egregious slurs against the very President of the country.

    One of the critical differences between America and the rest of the west is that America has a First Amendment and the rest don’t. And a lot of them are far too comfortable with the notion that in free societies it is right and proper for the state to regulate speech.
    These “human rights” censors started with small fry – obscure websites, “homophobes” who made the mistake of writing letters to local newspapers or quoting the more robust chunks of Leviticus – and, because they got away with it, it now seems entirely reasonable for a Canadian pseudo-court to�sit in judgment on�the content of a mainstream magazine and put a big old “libel chill” over critical areas of public debate. The�”progressive” left has grown accustomed to the regulation of speech, thinking it just a useful way of sticking it to Christian fundamentalists, right-wing columnists, and other despised groups. They don’t know they’re riding a tiger that in the end will devour them, too.

    Hillary for President – of Canada, Britain, or Italy

    Its her turn. She stayed married to that horn dog. Now VOTE FOR HER!

    Reminiscent of John Kerry’s “foreign leaders love me” moment, Bill Clinton is now talking up a poll showing Hillary is favored… in Canada, Britain and Italy.
    “In every country, without question, if you take out the undecided, she had the absolute majority,” Clinton said.
    Then I say, go for it. Send her to one of those countries and let her highness reign. I will fully support her campaign… in Canada, Britain or Italy.
    I’m sure I’d like her more too if she was in another country peddling her socialism.
