The news that is not White House approved...
Now that health care reform seems to have fallen by the wayside, Democrats are doing what they do best: pointing the finger. Many are pointing it straight at Rahm "Rahmbo Dead Fish" Emanuel, blaming his lack of Senate experience for his failure to orchestra a government health care takeover.
Iowa Senator Tom Harkin put his finger on the problem, saying the president's advisers lacked "a feeling for what's going on around the country, the populist sentiment."
Maybe the next time around Rahmbo "Dead Fish" will make sure that he has the support of the American people before he tries to ram something down your throat.
Blast From the Past
A mystery billboard in Minnesota is turning heads along I-35 just outside the city of Wyoming. The massive sign shows the 43rd President of the United States George W. Bush waving at drivers as they pass by asking, "Miss Me Yet?"
But the real question on the minds of a lot of Minnesotans is: Who's behind this ad campaign and, frankly, whose side is that person on?
The general manager of the ad agency that leased the billboard told Minnesota Public Radio that it was "paid for by a group of small business owners who feel like Washington is against them. They wish to remain anonymous."
I think a lot of Americans all across the country have the answer to the question on that billboard: Yes, President Bush, we miss you. Come home.
Warning the West
Our Great Moment in Liberal Foreign Policy is brought to you by President Obama and the nation of Iran.
Obama spent a lot of time this past year extending the olive branch to the leaders of Iran:

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, MAR. 20, 2009: I would like to speak directly to the people and leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Nowruz is just one part of your great and celebrated culture. Over many centuries your art, your music, literature and innovation have made the world a better and more beautiful place.
Here in the United States, our own communities have been enhanced by the contributions of Iranian Americans. We know that you are a great civilization and your accomplishments have earned the respect of the United States and the world.

So have these efforts paid off? Judging from a recent speech given by Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Khomeini, it doesn't look like it.
The anniversary of the Iranian Revolution is Thursday and in preparation for the celebrations, Khomeini made this cryptic statement: "The Iranian nation with its unity and God's grace will punch the Western powers on February 11th in a way that will leave them stunned."
Iran also declared it would begin enriching uranium to 20 percent purity, which can only be interpreted as another slap in the face.
At this point I think we're going to see start seeing a lot more of those "I Miss Bush" billboards all around the country.
They're calling it "Snowmageddon" in the nation's capital and Round Two is already under way. Up to 20 more inches of snow are expected in Washington in the next 24 hours and it appears that the blizzard of 2010 is causing an outbreak of cabin fever in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Take a look at this report from AccuWeather.com's Jim Kosek:

JIM KOSEK, ACCUWEATHER.COM: Another paralyzing, crippling, record-breaking storm comes today!
That's only one problem. Problem number two: 14 to 22 inches of snow! Winding down Saturday afternoon! Tertiary problem? Yes, I've been reading the dictionary. Blowing and drifting! Three, four, five feet drifts!

Talk about a meltdown. By the way, rumor has it that another storm could be headed this way next week!
Global warming where are you? We want you back.
