The LuLac Edition #2167, August 21st, 2012

The vets attacking Obama on Osama have links to the GOP. 


The GOP interest groups as well as the national party have launched a really stupid ad that takes President Obama to task for using the Pronoun “I” in describing the killing of Osama Bin Laden. The new “Swift boat” generation ad says that President Obama had nothing to do with getting Bin Laden. Notwithstanding is the fact that during the ’08 campaign, Obama said that he would hunt down Bin Laden and kill him. But as usual, the GOP does not want to be confused with the facts. But if you take this ad seriously and apply them to some of the most significant events in the history of the nation, you’d have to change the narrative about our more than 230 year heritage. For example: 

George Washington could never be credited for winning the Revolutionary War.

Thomas Jefferson never bought the land that now makes up the middle south. 

Woodrow Wilson never won World War I. 

Franklin Delano Roosevelt never won the war from two fronts during the 1940s. 

Dwight Eisenhower never gets credit for the U.S Interstate Highway system. 

Lyndon Johnson doesn’t get any credit for having the Civil Rights bill passed that gave blacks the opportunity to live where they want, eat in a restaurant with white people or vote. 

Richard Nixon would never get any credit for recognizing China as a trading partner. 

The GOP right’s Sainted Ronald Reagan would never get credit for ending Communism.

George H.W. Bush would never be recognized for negotiating a peaceful end to the Cold War. Stop the presses, change the history books if this ad can be taken to its logical conclusion. 

Any person know that Presidents have visions. Good ones put that vision into action with good staffs. Lincoln went through a series of failed Generals before he came upon U.S. Grant. Normal thinking people know the President gives the order. That gives him the luxury of saying “I did” when it works and “I’m sorry” when it doesn’t. The Buck always stops at the White House Desk, not in some Navy Seal’s backpack! The latest ad is just another attempt to diminish the legitimacy of the Bin Laden killing (something the Bush/Cheney administration did not do) and to diminish the President (Obama) who had the stones to pull the trigger. More nonsense from a bunch of people constantly distorting the truth.

10th Congressional candidate Phil Scollo. 


Politico reports that U.S. Representative Tom Marino was on that junket to Israel last summer.  It provided much needed fodder for the Democratic campaign of Phil Scollo. Here’s the story:  
POLITICO: FBI Probed Marino Trip to Israel Dingman, PA - 
Last August, U.S. Rep. Tom Marino went on a 9-day trip to Israel with all expenses paid by the special interest group the American Israel Education Foundation, according to a recently filed U.S. House ethics disclosure form. These revelations come on the heels of Marino and his staff being caught with conflicting stories about an appropriations vote that would "eviscerate funding" to the region largest employer and cost the area hundreds of jobs. According to a POLITICO report, the FBI probed events on the trip that involved drinking, numerous freshmen lawmakers, congressional staffers and even several intoxicated members and staffer (plus a nude member of Congress) swimming in the Sea of Galilee. "This sounds more like a frat party than a respectable congressional delegation," said Will Sharry, Phil Scollo's campaign manager. "The people who Rep. Tom Marino represents deserve to have questions answered about this trip, starting with: why were dozens of members of Congress partying it up at a $1000/night resort in August 2011 when the U.S. unemployment rate was at 9.1% and Pennsylvania families and seniors were struggling to make ends meet?" Other questions for Marino: Was Marino or staff contacted during the FBI investigation? Did they ever received persons of interest letters? Was Marino and his staff at the dinner event in question? Were they drinking excessively at it? Did Marino or staff swim in the Sea of Galilee? How much per night were rooms they were staying in at this resort (reports were that rooms were up to $1,000/night)? Both, local and national media outlets are beginning to question the competence, seriousness and sincerity of many freshman lawmakers, including Marino, given the recent spate of bad behavior, economically crippling votes and conflicting explanations. "Tom Marino and his freshman buddies are clearly out of control and not up to the job of representing their constituents. They are looking more like college kids drunk with power and out of the house for the first time every day," continued Scollo campaign manager Will Sharry. "The people of northeast and central Pennsylvania deserve someone who is focused on what matters to them - not someone who goes off globetrotting with special interest money while cutting the jobs that are the very lifeline of our area." The whole POLITICO story on the FBI probe is available here: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0812/79865.html Rep. Marino's most recent financial disclosure is here: http://scollocongress.com/home/wp-content/uploads/Marino-2012-Disclosure.pdf 
Phil Scollo left Wall Street to start a small business in Northeastern Pennsylvania. He learned hard work and public service early from a New York City Fire Fighter, his father. His business, a management-consulting firm, has served all types of organizations from global corporations to small businesses and government agencies. Phil has lived in Dingman Township, Pennsylvania since 1998 with his wife, Karen. He is the proud father of three children. A summa cum laude graduate of St. John’s University, Phil holds a B.S. in Government and Politics

I saw the ad and I thought it was ridiculous.

I shudder to think what kind of display the Mission Accomplished team would have come up with had BinLaden been offed during the Bush/Cheney regime.

Good morning Students,
As you are all aware (unless you live under a rock—excuse me—I assume so of you actually do—you may laugh) the high topic of conversation this week is the situation involving Missouri Senate candidate Todd Aken’s remarks pertaining to rape and abortion. Personally, I find the act of abortion abhorrent to every instinct in my body. An innocent unborn life thrown aside as if it were last night’s pizza tray.

We must ask ourselves an important question this morning. What was truly controversial about what Congressman Aken said?????? And why is the GOP abandoning him like an orphan??????
President Obama came out from hiding for several months and finally addressed the press stating “rape is rape”. The President should be ashamed to take such a sensitive issue and use it for political advantage as should the entire Democratic party.

I will inform the little ladies (?) in this class of some little known traits such as self-respect, class and dignity. I would suggest that if you employed some of these traits (particularly in your state of dress) that this entire debate would not even have occurred. When I began my teaching career, women wore dresses down to their knees and never exposed the upper body parts. Nowadays, some of you modern day Jezebels come into my classroom with miniskirts and low cut tops, or tight faded jeans w/ low cut tops, “shakin your booty” as your generation likes to put it; and then when a young male ingrate makes a move towards you, you complain?????? !!! Seriously?????????

If we are ever to return to a moral footing we must begin with ourselves. So, ladies, high cut tops, long cut skirts. Normal lipstick and less makeup (applies to some of you males also). I can assure you if you follow this prescription you will not have to worry about “forcible rape”. Yet remember, if a male takes you to dinner; buys you lobster and steak with all the trimmings; feeds you alcohol; bear in mind that he’s not doing so because he wants to hear what you have to say about the latest stock options.

Something to think about this morning……..

Class Dismissed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My sister was raped several years ago. It changed her life. I wonder if a woman is raped and has the child is it legimate if the rape was legimate? We are trying to determine if her rape was legimate or not. Fortunately she did not become pregnant. Just depressed and pretty much destroyed! I wouldnt even wish it on Akins daughter if he has one. Wouldnt mind seeing him raped though! Hope he stays in the race. Hes the best thing to happen to the Dems in awhile, but what a sad ass human being!

I guess it isn't common knowledge that the former Navy SEAL is an admitted "BIRTHER". How could such an asshole be a Navy SEAL? Ops, forgot .... he is a FORMER Navy SEAL so now I guess we know why. Funy how he doesn't mention that obama wwent gainst the advise of his military advisors and ordered the mission to go forward. I'm just waiting for them to bring up the Navy SEAL action against the pirates in which they took out two of the pireates on the open sea while the little boat bobbed like a corke. Naw, that wasn't real, it was probably a Disney production.

John Kerry's mistake in response to the asshole Swift Boat Vets was to not respond for nearly a month. Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American voter. He thought the charge so ludicrous that no one could possibly believe it.

Obama is not Kerry. Despite what Aggie feels, any guy who can bring himself from a State Senate seat to the Presidency in less than six years has balls----huge ones.

Funny how suddenly the far right is in love with the Clintons. Hmmmmm. Seems like Aggie gets all her talking points from Rush. Which is the case with all Republicans.

God Bless.

The "Professor" just suggested that rape is the fault of women, and that they should be forced by law to carry and have their rape babies.

Anyone with one functioning brain cell can tell you that's false. I've been a victim of rape before, so I can speak from personal, first hand experience. His commentary is disgusting and disturbing and is no longer merely sexist, but misogynistic.

Yonki, I think this is enough. I suggest that the Professor be banned from posting any further; sure it was funny at first, and he certainly makes his preferred presidential candidate Mitt Romney look bad, which I'm all for, but now, lines have been crossed.
