Everything Obama Said At That Terrorist Mosque Was a Lie

For example:

Obama: “Jefferson and John Adams had their own copies of the Koran.”

The primary, if not only, reason Jefferson had a copy of the Koran was to try to understand the Koran and Islam in light of what the Muslim ambassador from Tripoli had told him and John Adams. When asked why Tripoli pirates were attacking American ships and enslaving Americans, the Muslim ambassador explained that Muslims are commanded to do so by the Koran. Jefferson wrote that the Tripoli ambassador told him that “it was written in their Koran that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every mussulman [Muslim] who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to Paradise.”

That’s why Jefferson and Adams had Korans.

Hmmm…

Ask:

I Hope the Super Bowl Isn’t Close. That way, people will still be talking about the Rubiobot glitch on Monday.

And ye shall receive:

Sunday’s game felt quite simply, like a stinker. The Denver Broncos grinded out an interminable-feeling 24–10 win over the Carolina Panthers in a night full of turnovers, miscues, and bizarre ads about bowel movements. Justin Peters, who recently watched and ranked every single Super Bowl for Slate, rated the golden anniversary edition as the 11th worst Super Bowl of all time, describing it as “a grim, joyless, maddeningly ugly football game.”

Ted Cruz, on whether women should be required to register for the draft:

Let me say something about the debate last night. You know, it was striking that three different people on that stage came out in support of drafting women into combat in the military. I didn’t have an opportunity to respond to that particular question. But I have to admit, as I was sitting there listening to that conversation, my reaction was: “Are you guys nuts?” Listen, we have had enough with political correctness, especially in the military. Political correctness is dangerous. And the idea that we would draft our daughters to forcibly bring them into the military and put them in close combat, I think, is wrong. It is immoral.

I disagree with Cruz. If women can be president and serve in combat, then they should surely be forced to sign up for the draft like men are. That’s the logical consequence of demanding equality with men.

But still, it’s a shrewd political move (and honest!) for Cruz to oppose drafting women.

Tied with Rubio.

Since the institution of the primary system as we know it, both parties’ eventual nominees have been first or second in New Hampshire.

When Donald Trump talks, he doesn’t seem to complete his sentences or have a particularly scintillating vocabulary. To a yuppie like me, he comes off as… dumb.

But the man is worth billions of dollars! How can someone who sounds so dumb be so successful?

As I pondered, I could feel my brain about to blue-screen like Marco Rubio’s. So I thought posting this might help.

What Would Rubio’s Gang of Eight Amnesty Have Done?

A lot of damage:

Rubio’s repeatedly stated reason for joining the Gang was to get the most conservative bill out of the Senate; the reality, however, was that Rubio sold Republican lawmakers on a bill radically to the left of McCain-Kennedy: a bill that granted instant legalization, doubled annual foreign worker admissions (a much larger increase than McCain-Kennedy), issued 30 million green cards, provided mass amnesty, expedited citizenship for DREAMers without an age cap, removed the limits on family-based migration, etc., etc. Rubio’s bill was supported by every single Senate Democrat, every single liberal house lawmaker, every progressive politician and group in the country, Nancy Pelosi, Luis Gutierrez, Harry Reid, La Raza, Center for American Progress, George Soros, and on and on. Of course the White House was the biggest champion.

The reason New Hampshire polls tend to be wrong is:

Polls that stop days before the primary miss important shifts in voter preference that occur right up until Election Day.

Bush’s love for amnesty may have cost him the presidency (like so. many. others) , but he’s still gotta wonder how he’s losing to a guy like Trump: It must be more than a decade ago when I got a glimpse of the man often referred to as “George W. Bush’s smarter, younger brother.”...
