Landrieu down and out

Cassidy defeats Landrieu in Louisiana Senate race, bolstering GOP majority in new Senate

MELINDA DESLATTE Dec 6th 2014

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy has defeated Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu, denying her a fourth term and extending the GOP’s domination of the 2014 midterm elections that put Republicans in charge of Capitol Hill for the final two years of President Barack Obama’s tenure.

With Cassidy’s victory, the GOP will hold 54 seats when the Senate convenes in January, nine more than they have now. Republican victories in two Louisiana House districts Saturday – including the seat Cassidy now holds – ensure at least 246 seats, compared to 188 for Democrats, the largest GOP advantage since the Truman administration after World War II. An Arizona recount leaves one race still outstanding.

Nuttier than squirrel food

Having a look around tells you there is lots to leave you scratching your head, even giving you a chuckle.

The big production on Keystone that was Landrieu’s Hail Mary went bust. She was shutdown by her own offense. The defense on the other side couldn’t save her from her own linemen.

A befuddled Obama overseas said ‘I am just now hearing about this” to the montage of Johnathon Gruber quotes. Makes you think Gruber must have been the life of the party at those secret Obamcare meetings. I bet he was a hoot.

Harry Reid allowed the Keystone vote while his henchmen organized the vote to prevent its passage. However, Harry still manages to pass gas with no trouble.

In Australia, someone actually had the chutzpah to tell Putin to get out of Ukraine, to which he responded ‘Russia is not in Ukraine.’ Seems he is as good at whoppers as Obama is.

A little-known ‘fanged deer’ was found in Afghanistan, thought to have been extinct. Seems it did not cave to the common perceptions.

Obama announced a need for peace talks following Palestinians’ terrorist attack in a synagogue. I’m quite sure lack of peace talks was the cause.

In a presentation, Gruber said “It’s an exploitation of the of the lack of economic understanding of voters.” That translates to ‘an exploitation of the ignorance of voters,’ which boils down to ‘exploitation of voters’. Someone finally admitted it.

The odd part in Grubergate’s truth was that so much of the public had pointed out many of the fallacies and obfuscations with Obamacare only to be dismissed by media as wackos, or conspiracy theorists. Somehow that all sounds more credible from the architect of Obamacare. So it was the economically versed people they tried hardest to conceal the truth from. He also proved the stupidity of government for paying him that much money to help them lie.

We saw the administration finally recognize a 21 day quarantine for Ebola risks. But amnesty for illegals that have been here over ten years just can’t wait a minute longer. I guess the amnesty virus needs no incubation period.

In the midterms, Dems had a communication gap with working class Americans that resulted in a mass firing of Democrat pols. From the unemployment line, they still claim to represent the working class.

Lois Lerner is glad Gruber came along.

The VA is taking immediate actions on the scandal. “We’re acting aggressively, expeditiously and consistent with the law,” McDonald said. The VA secretary says it will take some time. I guess government employees have more rights to stand on than those Vets.

IBT: Disciplinary action was taken against 5,600 VA employees this year, he said, including some who are still with the federal agency. “We’re acting aggressively, expeditiously and consistent with the law,” McDonald said.

A NYT article on Ferguson found a new way to describe the violent protest efforts as “less passive” than older generations’.

Barack Obama officially declares himself an Emperor by issuing an Executive Order of amnesty. He said he could not do it before because he was not an emperor

Obama surprised everyone with his gift of telepathy, reading the minds of non-voters and telling leaders of Ferguson protests that he knew what it was they were advocating. Then he said the majority of Palestinians want peace. His mind reading hasn’t been so helpful on the Islamic State, who he says are not Islamic.

Judging by how nutty fall has been, it is going to be a heck of a winter.

2 faces of Landrieu – evolution in action

Is it a bird, or plane, or just Mary Landrieu on Keystone XL? — the pipeline to politics.
(The Hill)

“After she requested the vote Wednesday, both parties were able to agree on holding a vote Tuesday on bipartisan legislation that would force the Obama administration to allow the construction of the pipeline that would transport oil from Canadian tar sands to refineries along the Gulf Coast. The House is expected to pass the bill this week.”

Wednesday:

“If they want to take my name off, put somebody’s else name on it and pass it, so be it,” Landrieu said on the floor Wednesday. “I didn’t come here to see my name in lights.” — [humble, little ol’ Mary]

Thursday:

“When they call press conferences later today and declare victory, remember who actually brought this to the floor,” Landrieu said Thursday. “I’m the senator who came to this floor.”– [Proud Mary]
