A quick trip around Hannity's America...

Cleaning House

Remember how outraged Democrats were when President Bush replaced a handful of his own U.S. attorneys? Liberals claimed the prosecutors were unjustly removed for political reasons and argued that President Bush had no right to replace his own appointees.

Well, get this: According to the Associated Press, on the very same day that Karl Rove is reportedly meeting with a prosecutor to discuss President Bush's decision, President Obama is one step closer to ousting a group of U.S. attorneys:


U.S. ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER: We are working as quickly as we can to put new U.S. attorneys in place. I expect that we'll have an announcement in the next couple of weeks with regard to our first batch of U.S. attorneys.


I bet that's really going to get the Democrats' blood boiling! Hey Mr. Attorney General, what's the reason for these firings?


HOLDER: Elections matter. It is our intention to have the U.S. attorneys that are selected by President Obama in place as quickly as we can.


Elections matter? That's your reason? Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that considered politically motivated?

Worst Presser Ever

Our Liberal Translation is dedicated to the San Francisco Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who Thursday delivered what may have been the worst press conference in congressional history.

Here are just a few highlights:


SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE NANCY PELOSI, D-CALIF.: My statement is clear and let me read it again. Let me read it again. I'm sorry. I have to find the page.


PELOSI: When — um — when my staff person — I'm sorry, the page is out of order.

LIBERAL TRANSLATION: Just like my entire life right now.

PELOSI: Five months later my staff person told me that there had been a briefing — informed me there had been a briefing and that a letter had been sent. I was not briefed on what was in that briefing. I was just informed that the briefing had taken place.

LIBERAL TRANSLATION: Ask me one more question and I'll have a nervous breakdown.

PELOSI: No, he did say that. He said that — the committee chair — and ranking member — and appropriate staff had been briefed, that these techniques were now being used. They — that's all I was informed.

LIBERAL TRANSLATION: I knew about waterboarding. Absolutely nothing more. Is this over yet?


Now Madame Speaker, maybe when you resign you can take over for my pal Robert Gibbs.

Budget Blues

The president has repeatedly boasted that the $787 billion stimulus bill will save or create — I don't know what that means — 3.5 million jobs. That remains to be seen though. What is certain, however, is that the president's drastic cuts in the defense budget will cost the city of St. Louis approximately 30,000 jobs.

A St. Louis news channel reports that the budget cuts will slow the production of planes at the aerospace company Boeing — St. Louis' second largest employer. Boeing has long manufactured C-17 cargo planes for the U.S. military. The company is currently trying to get the planes back into the budget, but if it fails, Boeing executive John Van Gels said, "We're going to have to start reacting to the news. And that means start laying people off by the end of the year."

Not to mention those two wars we're fighting abroad.

Mister President, maybe this isn't the best time to slash the defense budget.

I Pay Dead People

You're not going to believe this one. Here's a crystal clear example of just how efficiently the government is spending your hard-earned tax dollars: This week thousands of stimulus checks are being sent out — you know, these are the $250 checks that President Obama said will jumpstart the economy. Well, don't hold your breath, because FOX 5 in New York is reporting that an estimated 8,000-10,000 of those checks were mailed to dead people.

Here is Antonetta Santopadre's reaction when her son told her that her father received a check:


ANTONETTA SANTOPADRE: "Grandpa got a check." I said, "Grandpa got a check?" He said, "Oh, yes, Grandpa got a check." And of course we opened the check, and there it was, but my father is dead 35 years.

What are they doing with our money? I mean are they just giving it away? This is our money.


I can't wait for Obama to take over our health care system.
