Well its been 96 hours since a bungled video was released by BigGovernment.com that in the swiftest fashion possible led to her firing by the Dept of Ag Secretary Vilsack.

Not to mention swift condemnation by the NAACP. And odd happenstance given Sherrod’s speech was at an NAACP function. One would think the “brain-trust” would have fired off a query to Sherrod or those that arranged the meeting to get the entire story.

Just as swifty was the organization’s backtracking as the full video was… ahem found, or something.

First let me say Sherrod was unduly fired, period.

But what’s happened since is nothing short of raising Sherrod to the level of Sainthood by the media.

Thursday morning she was on no less than 5 different TV networks, and one had two interviews of her within a couple hours. Again nothing wrong with that, she’s “the story” of the moment.

My complaint is the unquestioning adoration she has recieved.

What should she have been questioned on you ask… glad you did.

How about asking to provide evidence that Fox News, and or the Tea Parties, propagate a racist agenda?

She’s in so many words accused both or doing so. And do I really need to note how loony she sounds with her tripe about Breitbart saying he would “like to get us stuck in the time of slavery.”

The lies contuine to mount as the story has progressed.

Here’s one from some nitwit at what used to be my home town newspaper, the Detriot Free Press.

Rochelle Riley claims “Sherrod was fired after Fox Entertainment (it’s not news) posted an edited video clip of Sherrod from a conservative activist.”

Nice job covering for a “Sister,” as Riley is black, but it’s a lie no one at Fox airred anything on the story until the 8 o’clock (PM) hour on the Bill O’Reilly show. Sherod was fired, at the WH’s request hours earlier.

Would you be surprised to learn the editorial board of the NY Times are also pushing similar BS?

By the time the conservative commentator took up the issue, the full transcript of the speech was out and Mr. Beck was citing Ms. Sherrod — but as a victim of administration recklessness. This time, he was right.

Perhaps the board should review Tuesday’s Glenn Beck show they would learn, 1, he called the firing of Sherood uncalled for and 2. also requested the full transcript be released because it wasn’t available when his show arried at 5 pm Tuesday.

Oh… and they note, “this time he was right.”

Yeah well if the editoril board and many other under the paper’s emply paid more attention to his show, rather than Obama’s coattails, they might learn he’s right FAR more often than the so-call “paper of record.”

At the time of the government takeover of GM and Chrysler much, if not all of the criticism was centered on the debate over jobs.

Everyone in support on injecting billions into the two companies were doing their best Chicken Little impressions saying without taxpayer money the entire auto industry would fail at the cost of millions of home-grown jobs.

That was then, this is now and an inspector general report

Treasury Department’s Special Inspector General for the Toxic Asset Relief Program (SIGTARP) contends that President Obama’s push for General Motors and Chrysler to close thousands of dealerships across the country as part of their government bailouts “may have substantially contributed to the shuttering of thousands of small businesses and thereby potentially adding tens of thousands of workers to the already lengthy unemployment rolls, all based on a theory and without sufficient consideration of the decisions’ broader economic impacts.”

The SIGTARP report will further contend, according to Rep. Darrell Issa, the ranking minority member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that it is questionable whether the closings were “either necessary for the sake of the companies’ economic survival or prudent for the nation’s economic recovery.”

Issa, who has been a vocal critic of the Obama administration’s handling of the GM and Chrysler government takeovers, said the SIGTARP report should “serve as a wake-up call as to the implications of politically-orchestrated bailouts and how putting decisions about private enterprise in the hands of political appointees and bureaucrats can lead to costly and unintended consequences.”

The California Republican also said the fothcoming report will say “GM did not consistently follow its stated criteria and that there was little or no documentation of the decision-making process to terminate or retain dealerships with similar profiles, or of the appeals process” and that “making termination decisions with little or no transparency and making a review of many of these decisions impossible…”

So, thousands of additional people are collecting unemployment due to ill-advised political meddeling in privates business.

Who’d a thunk it?

Accept those of us that saw it comming.

Wasn’t it Pres. Obama who claimed to be in charge of the Gulf oil spill from “day one?”

As a reminder, that seems to be the case:

“From the beginning, the effort has been bedeviled by a lack of preparation, organization, urgency and clear lines of authority among federal, state and local officials, as well as BP. As a result, officials and experts say, the damage to the coastline and wildlife has been worse than it might have been if the response had been faster and orchestrated more effectively.”

Not to put too fine a point on it but, Obama also made the claim that BP was doing what the government told it to do as it pertains to clean up, containment, even “plug[ging] the damn hole”.

Nearly 60 days into this and one of Obama’s staunch allies, the New York Times, describes his leadership and effectiveness on the issue as an unmitigated disaster you know the few allowed into the “Oval “Office are pissing their panties about now

Well so much for Obama’s Green Jobs canard.

You know the one, it’s where bazillions of dollars will be spent to make America “ecco-friendly,” produce enough energy to power not only the good ole US of A but every known planet in the universe and create more jobs than has ever been produced in the history of mankind.

At least that’s the bullshit Obama spews out on a regular basis.

Obama also cites the country of Spain as a model to follow.

NEWSFLASH courtesy the Spanish newspaper La Gaceta

As predicted was inevitable, today the Spanish newspaper La Gaceta runs with a full-page article fessing up to the truth about Spain’s “green jobs” boondoggle, which happens to be the one naively cited by President Obama no less than eight times as his model for the United States. It is now out there as a bust, a costly disaster that has come undone in Spain to the point that even the Socialists admit it, with the media now in full pursuit.

[…]

La Gaceta boldly exposes the failure of the Spanish renewable policy and how Obama has been following it. The headline screams: “Spain admits that the green economy as sold to Obama is a disaster.”

What no jobs, and electricity prices have sky rocketed?

Who’d a thunk it!

The internal report of the Spanish administration admits that the price of electricity has gone up, as well as the debt, due to the extra costs of solar and wind energy. Even the government numbers indicate that each green job created costs more than 2.2 traditional jobs, as was shown in the report of the Juan de Mariana Institute. Besides that, the official document is almost a copy point by point of the one that led to Calzada being denounced [lit. “vetoed”] by the Spanish Embassy in an act in the U.S. Congress.

The presentation recognizes explicitly that “the increase of the electric bill is principally due to the cost of renewable energies.” In fact, the increase in the extra costs of this industry explains more than 120% of the variation in the bill and has prevented the reduction in the costs of conventional electricity production to be reflected on the bills of the citizens.

What you mean Obama lied?

Well yeah, so what else is new!

Remind me again who it was that said, “under my plan electricity prices will necessarily sky-rocket.”

If you don’t know it was Obama.
