Bill Smith, Editor, ARRA News: It used to be many people but now it is “most people” who are wondering where the President Obama’s head and heart is these days. It doesn’t appear to the majority of Americans that he values “down to earth” good old America – our country. Yesterday, we note another example of Obama’s lack of focus on what really matters:
ABC News‘ Matthew Jaffe reported: In the wake of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, President Obama today summoned a bipartisan group of over 20 senators to the White House to push for energy and climate change legislation.
But one thing the President did not want to talk about at the meeting was the BP disaster, a Republican source told ABC News. And that, the source said, led to a pointed exchange with GOP senator Lamar Alexander from Tennessee.
“The priority should be fixing the oil spill,” Alexander told the President, according to the source. “That’s what any meeting about energy should be about.”
But when Alexander tried to interject the BP leak into the meeting, the source said, the President told the senator, “That’s just your talking point.” Retorted Alexander, “No, it’s my opinion.” . . . [Full Story]
Arrogance abounds in the White House. American is suffering while President Obama “Fiddles Around” in the White House, on the golf course, or jetting around the globe trying to impress global dignitaries, and constantly campaigning. Wonder when he will ever visit the US Border with Mexico! We are under armed attack. People are being murdered and raped by invaders on American soil. I never thought I would find my self saying anything good about disgraced former president Jimmy Carter. But here goes: At least Carter showed some good old Southern grace while screwing over America.

By Michael Steele:: What did the Democrat Senate primary teach voters in Arkansas? You can’t trust Blanche Lincoln. Senator Lincoln lost any kind of credibility with Arkansans when she proudly embraced the agenda of the liberal left in her primary run-off. Now facing a strong conservative opponent in the general election, Rep. John Boozman, Senator Lincoln is trying to do an about face while hoping that Arkansas voters don’t see through her acts of political desperation.
Throughout the contentious intra-party civil war that played out in the primary, Senator Lincoln was forced to show her true colors; she has served as a loyal foot soldier for the big-government policies of the Obama-Reid-Pelosi agenda, and she has a voting record to prove it. Blanche Lincoln has voted with President Obama 95% of the time. On the campaign trail, she proudly championed her votes in support of the government takeover of health care and the big-spending failed stimulus. Her critical votes that cemented these legislative proposals into law did nothing but vastly expand our federal government, launch the national debt past $13 trillion, and maintain the national unemployment rate at nearly 10 percent. And now Lincoln wants Arkansas taxpayers to foot the bill.
ARKANSAS VOTERS BEWARE: Now that Senator Lincoln has made it past her primary, she is frantically trying to backtrack from her far-left voting history. Don’t be fooled by the carefully crafted rhetoric that is spoken on the campaign trail. The facts speak for themselves, and Senator Lincoln’s loyalties lie first and foremost with President Obama and Harry Reid, not the people of Arkansas.
Arkansas deserves a better Senator, someone who will consistently fight for the people of Arkansas and will defend their interests in Washington. Congressman Boozman is the right man for the job. Arkansas voters can trust him to stand up to the Obama Agenda. His opposition to ObamaCare and the stimulus demonstrates his commitment to limited government, fiscal restraint, and low taxes. With a positive, conservative message that puts him in line with the majority of people in the state, Rep. Boozman is the best candidate to represent Arkansas in the United States Senate.
