The news that is not White House approved...

State of Distrust

We've been hearing for years from Barack Obama that he would be the one to restore confidence in government. Well, the results are in and things are not exactly going as planned.

A new Pew Research Center poll shows that only 22 percent of Americans say they trust the government; an overwhelming 76 percent say they trust the government only sometimes or not at all.

Now by comparison the average level of confidence in the government during the Bush administration, well, that was 37 percent — which was the most trusted administration since the Reagan years when 42 percent sided with their government.

By the way, only 33 percent of Democrats say they trust the government. So looks like the Anointed One and his party have some work to do before the November elections.

Desperate Times

California Senator Barbara Boxer is in a tough reelection fight. And from the looks of it she is getting desperate. Take a look at what she told her supporters over the weekend:

SEN. BARBARA BOXER, D-CALIF.: I need you to be excited. As excited as the Tea Party people are. Will you help me? Will you get excited?

(END OF VIDEO CLIP)

Get excited! Get excited!

Who knew the Democrats thought so highly of the Tea Party movement? Even Senator Boxer's views appear to have changed because she didn't seem to think too much of the Tea Party movement last year. This is what she told, I have a thrill up my leg, Chris Matthews:

BOXER: I saw some of the clips of people storming these town hall meetings. So last time I saw well-dressed people doing this was when Al Gore asked me to go down to Florida, when they were recounting the ballots.

This is just all organized, just go up on the Web site, Chris. You in the media have to take a look at what's going on here. This is all planned.

How quickly things change. And we can only hope this is one of the last things we hear from Senator Boxer before she's probably defeated in November.

Confusion Abounds

The Democrats' health care bill may not take full effect for a few years, but it is clear right now that it is a disaster in the making. According to The New York Times, not even medical professionals have a clue of what is in the 2,400-page bill.

The president of the American Academy of Family Physicians told The Times: "Not only is the public confused but so are our members." Not only that but these doctors are now wasting a whole lot of time thanks to the Democrats' disastrous bill.

One doctor said: "We've had to add an hour or two to our day because patients want to talk about the bill. Now I see 30 to 50 patients in a day and it is a subject of conversation more than half the time."

Thank you, Democrats. I can already tell just how much the quality of our health care will be improving in the coming years.

Gone Golfin'

The president may not be setting any records for restoring trust in government any time soon. But he has been able to put his name in the history books, well, for other reasons.

This weekend marked the 32nd time the Anointed One has stepped on to the golf course as president. And get this, after just a year in office he's already played eight more rounds of golf than George W. Bush played during his entire eight years.

The president was scheduled to travel to Poland for the funeral of that nation's president who was killed in a plane crash last week, but because of the volcanic eruption in Iceland, he had to scrap his plans.

I'm glad he was able to find something constructive to do with all that free time. What about maybe creating jobs?
