On “Morning Joe” today, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough dared to suggest that Barack Obama and Leon Panetta’s new policy that women can service in frontline combat roles should be carefully implemented to make sure it does not end up putting lives at risk. The way he said it was thought-provoking: “There’s a reason why there are no women in the NFL.”
Scarborough clarified what he was getting at:
“I’m not saying I don’t want women in combat. Women can be in combat, but I’ll be damned, if we find out that the Pentagon is lowering standards for politically correct reasons.”
The Left is already trying to squirm out of reality when it comes to President Obama and his adminstration promising that his “Stimulus” boondoggle would prevent unemployment from going above 8%. The need for the “Stimulus” to prevent unemployment from going higher was one of Obama’s biggest selling points to push it through.
But leftist “journalist” Richard Wolffe tries to make out like Obama’s Administration had nothing to do with that 8% number – which left former RNC Chair Michael Steele groaning and shaking his head. That’s what a lot of us do as we watch the liberal media on TV!
As to Wolffe’s claim – even NBC’s David Gregory doesn’t buy it. Below is video of Gregory telling Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner just a few weeks ago that their “Stimulus” was supposed to keep unemployment below 8%. Geithner never disputed what he said. Whether the Left likes it or not – Obama’s “Stimulus” failed and he said it was the solution.
