Note to Obama: Silence is Golden

The New York Times that wouldn’t let the Bush Administration keep classified information secret, now wants to give cover to an Obama Administration that can’t keep its mouths shut.

It starts at the top, of course. Obama put his foot in it when he stupidly said the Cambridge, Massachusetts cops “stupidly” arrested Gates. He not only put his foot in it, he then shot himself in the foot because he let all the air out he was trying to pump into creating socialized healthcare.

Just when he had everyone’s attention focused on healthcare, he made himself his own distraction.

Now a video just surfaced via the Drudge Report of Obama complaining to Randi Rhodes on “Air America” that the Bush Administration rushed legislation through before anyone had a chance to even read it, let alone debate it.

Talk about the “pot calling the kettle black.”

This clichĂ© means that Obama is a hypocrite, and has nothing to do with race, quite unlike Obama’s remark about the Cambridge police officer.

The number one loose tongue, however, is and remains “Folksy” Joe Biden. Who can forget his “The government has to spend to keep from going bankrupt”? Liberal pundits were quick to come to his defense: “You know, it sounds funny, but the Vice President is right.”

Then California is in great shape because the California Legislature has spent like a New Jersey politician for the past decade. As California tax revenues went down, California public employment went up. Medi-Cal went up. Anything and all things Californians said they needed – except tax cuts – were funded and immediately became sacrosanct, never to be cut, let alone eliminated.

After being ridiculed for his remarks about our economy, Folksy Joe then brought ridicule on the economy that serves as a model for Democrats, Russian socialism.

“They have a shrinking population base, they have a withering economy, they have a banking sector and structure that is not likely to be able to withstand the next 15 years, they're in a situation where the world is changing before them and they're clinging to something in the past that is not sustainable," Biden said in the interview.

"I think we vastly underestimate the hand that we hold," he said in an interview to The Wall Street Journal published Saturday.

Biden said Russia's economic difficulties are likely to make the Kremlin more willing to cooperate with the United States on a range of national security issues.

Not any more, Folksy Joe.
