Matt Drudge Predicts Nancy Pelosi Will Become Speaker After 2014 Elections

Matt Drudge, who runs right-leaning Drudge Report, seems to be suggesting that Nancy Pelosi will become the next Speaker of the House after the Democrats win back control of the House of Representatives in the 2014 elections. The photo mocking current House Speaker John Boehner seems to confirm his views:

Matt Drudge Predicts Nancy Pelosi Will Become Speaker After 2014 Elections

One thing I can say with confidence, Nancy Pelosi would have had more control over the Democratic members of the House than John Boehner has over his caucus. He’s a weakling and a disgrace.

Matt Drudge tweeted this on Wednesday:

Talking Points Memo:  President Barack Obama said Tuesday that Boehner “can’t control his caucus.” Pelosi has said previously that Boehner would be dubbed “the weakest speaker in history” if he were a woman. An influential figure on the right, Drudge has turned a critical eye on Republicans as of late. In a pair of tweets last month, he asked why any voters would support the GOP.

Drudge Report Goes After Michelle Obama Using Hip-Hop to Fight Obesity

The Drudge Report goes after First Lady Michelle Obama for using hip-hop to fight obesity. Mrs. Obama appeared in a hip-hop music video that featured rapper Doug E. Fresh, American Idol winner Jordin Sparks and TV medical personality Dr. Oz.

The catchy song urged kids to “work hard/eat right” and “tell somebody/it’s your body/c’mon.” The song was just the first of a 19-track album, the majority of which are hip-hop, to be released by the Partnership for a Healthier America, the anti-obesity nonprofit that launched in conjunction with Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! anti-obesity campaign, and a New York-based group called Hip Hop Public Health.

The full album, which includes songs with names like “Veggie Luv,” by Monifah and J Rome, “Hip Hop LEAN,” by Artie Green, and “Give Myself a Try,” by Ryan Beatty, will be released on Sept. 30.

Let’s Move! Executive Director and White House assistant chef Sam Kass says the White House is fully behind the initiative to use hip-hop – and other genres of music – as a tool to get kids to live healthier lives.

“Cultural leaders and visionaries in our country can give these messages to kids in a way that’s not preachy. Kids are going to be dancing and listening to the music,” he says. “I think hip-hop in particular – so many kids love hip-hop. It’s such a core part of our culture …and particularly in the African-American community and the Latino community which is being disproportionately affected by those health issues.” Source:  US News

Rush Limbaugh Attacks Rachel Jeantel Saying She Called Zimmerman a ‘Homosexual Predator’

Rush Limbaugh attacks Trayvon Martin’s friend Rachel Jeantel over comments she made on the Piers Morgan show, saying she called George Zimmerman a ‘homosexual predator,’ and warned ‘gay men go after children. I didn’t realize Rush Limbaugh was an advocate for the gay community. We may have another Sandra Fluke moment from Rush Limbaugh!  Of course, the Drudge Report freak-out continues as Matt Drudge also goes after Maya Angelou for voicing her opinion, as though he could somehow walk in her shoes…..

Rush Limbaugh Attacks Rachel Jeantel Saying She Called Zimmerman a ‘Homosexual Predator’

Here’s an excerpt of Rush Limbaugh interpretation of Rachel Jeantel’s comments:

I thought, when I heard this last night, that that’s all anybody’d be talking about today, because this throws this thing 180 degrees out of phase.  So now Trayvon Martin, who is the recipient of full-fledged, 100% victim status? It turns out could well be a gay basher, and the left has been defending him.  So what do they do?  They have two interest groups here that they represent and champion: African-Americans and homosexuals, and in this incident, the object of their affection (in this case, Trayvon Martin), might have thought he was being pursued by a gay guy and beat him up, or tried to.

I figured they’d be very conflicted today.

But that hasn’t come up anywhere.

Now I think I understand why.  It’s precisely because nobody wants to get near it.  Nobody wants to get anywhere near this.  Those words of Rachel’s are gone, into the ether, never to be remembered until the EIB Network kicked off at noon.  Now, one sound bite here before we go to the obscene profit break.  This morning on CNN’s Newsroom, the anchorette, Carol Costello, is speaking with criminal defense attorney Mark NeJame about Martin’s friend Rachel Jeantel’s appearance on Piers Morgan Live.
Rush Limbaugh says Trayvon Martin could be a gay basher. Unbelievable.

Right Wing Freak-Out: Michelle Obama Says Living In White House Like Living In ‘Really Nice Prison’

Right Wing Freak-Out: Michelle Obama Compares White House to Living in a ‘Really Nice Prison’

The usual chorus of right wing haters are singing today, loudly, over First Lady Michelle Obama’s comments that living in the White House is like living in a ‘really nice prison.’ The Drudge Report is even leading with that story, linking to the Washington Examiner. Of course, they never consider the full context of what Mrs. Obama was trying to say, just sprinting off with just a snippet.

In Tanzania, Michelle Obama joked about the “prison-like elements” of being first lady. “[B]ut it’s a really nice prison,” she said. “You can’t complain.”

Seat with Laura Bush, Michelle Obama said that wives of presidents “have probably the best job in the world, because while our husbands … have to react and respond to crises on a minute-to-minute basis, we got to work on what we’re passionate about. … I have just found it a very freeing and liberating opportunity. … [Laughing] There are prison-like elements, but it’s a really nice prison. You can’t complain. There are confining elements … While people are sorting through our shoes and our hair … whether we cut it or not … We take our bangs and we stand in front of important things the world needs to see. And eventually people stop looking at the bangs, and start looking at the things we’re standing in front of. That’s the power of our role,” according to quotations provided by Mike Allen.

Drudge Report Compares President Obama to Richard Nixon in Fast and Furious Executive Privilege Flap

Drudge Report Compares President Obama to Richard Nixon in Fast and Furious Executive Privilege Flap

The Drudge Report President Obama to former president Richard Nixon in the “Fast and Furious” scandal after the White House assertsxecutive privilege in refusing to release documents to Rep. Darrell Issa. This is as the  House continues with contempt hearing against Attorney General Eric Holder. It’s hilarious that Matt Drudge and the right wing is foaming at the mouths, when they didn’t seem to care with former president George W. Bush invoked executive privilege many times during his administration. Is “Fast and Furious” similar to Watergate?

Rasmussen Poll Shows Obama Trailing Mitt Romney by 7 Points, Backlash from Supporting Gay Marriage?

BACKLASH? A new Rasmussen poll finds President Obama trailing Mitt Romney by 7 percentage points. Could this be the beginning of a backlash against his endorsement of gay marriage? Of course, the Drudge Report is running with this. Not surprised. It’s safe to say that most blacks don’t support the president on this endorsement. While I believe marriage is between one man and one woman, I don’t have a bone in this dogfight, so it’s not my place to tell a gay man that he can’t love another gay man unconditionally and get married. He has a right to happiness as I am.

What I find most displeasing is the fact that President Obama continues to take the black community for granted. If he had done half as much for the black community as he has done for the gay community then I wouldn’t be willing to throw him under a bus for endorsing gay marriage. It seems to me that he did because he was cornered by the right wing after Joe Biden, either misspoke or was sent on “Meet the Press” to lay the groundwork for his endorsement during ABC News interview. Obama just slapped the black community in its face once again using “calculated courage” to the benefit of the gay community. Are you willing to stand with him? I suspect many will because they have been trained to do so.

Well, let me publicly state today, I won’t be one of those people supporting him in November, unless the president devotes some attention to the needs of the black and Latino communities.  To all my black readers, are you going to just roll over and let the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party continue to ignore you or are you going to fight like the gay community does for its rights? Hey Mr. President, since Sasha and Malia Obama are so up on what’s going on in the gay community where same-sex marriage is concerned, what have they been telling you about helping the black community?

This poll comes as Bill Clinton reportedly called President Obama an “amateur.” Um, well, that’s according to Edward Klein’s new biography of President Obama, entitled “The Amateur” (title taken from Bill Clinton’s comment). He claims Bill Clinton thought so little of  Obama, mocking him as an amateur, that he last summer, he pressed his wife to quit her job as secretary of state and challenge him in the primaries. Er, didn’t Bill Clinton campaign with Obama recently?

Here’s the reaction on Twitter about Rasmussen poll:


First Lady Michelle Obama: “Fantasy is to Walk Out of the White House and Keep Walking”

First Lady Michelle Obama: “It is hard to sneak around and do what you want,” Michelle Obama said today. “I have done it a couple of times. But you know one fantasy I have, and the Secret Service they keep looking at me because they think I might actually do it, is to walk right out the front door and just keep walking.”

With that said, the right will twist her words to mean she doesn’t want her husband to win reelection and she’s that angry black woman who hates to be in the White House because she isn’t so proud of her country. Yeah, you know what I mean. In actuality, I think she means she is very confined in what she does and has no freedom to just go for a walk alone, for example. Of course, added to this is the fact that her Spain vacation cost taxpayers over $460,000, so yeah, the right wing would love to see her go away, since Laura Bush, Barbara Bush and Nancy Reagan spent considerably less on their vacations. Of course, I’m being sarcastic.

Drudge Report Goes After President Obama for Eating Dog Meat as a Boy in Indonesia

DRUDGE REPORT GOES AFTER PRESIDENT OBAMA FOR EATING DOG MEAT:  The Drudge Report is leading this morning with a caption that as a boy, President Obama ate dog meat. Why is this so newsworthy? It wasn’t a secret because he wrote it in his best-selling memoir, “Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance,” in which he recalls being fed dog meat as a young boy in Indonesia by his stepfather Lolo Soetoro. Um, if I’m not mistaken, there are some cultures that also feast on cats, so what’s the point? Oh, wait, I guess they are trying to shut down any attacks from the Obama camp against Mitt Romney transporting his dog in a crate on top of his car.

Here’s an excerpt from the Daily Caller:

“With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy),” the president wrote. “Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share.” After his mother married Soetoro, Obama lived in Indonesia from 1967 until 1971, from roughly the age of 6 through 10.

I guess it’s lost on the right wing that our “friends” in China regularly feast on dog meat. SMH. It’s pretty repulsive to me, but he didn’t just go into a butcher shop and pick some up himself. It was given to him as a child.

Drudge Report Goes After Obama for Saying “If I Had a Son, He’d Look Like Trayvon Martin?”

The Drudge Report goes after President Obama for saying if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon Martin. Um, really Matt Drudge? Are you saying Trayvon Martin is a hoodlum for wearing a hoodie? The last person Matt Drudge needs to set his sights on is Trayvon Martin. We are ready to stand up and fight for justice.

Rick Santorum Endorsed Mitt Romney in 2008 Saying He Was Best Conservative Choice for GOP

The Drudge Report goes after Rick Santorum for endorsing Mitt Romney in 2008. Yeah, his words are coming back to bite him in the butt. Approximately 1,504 days ago, Rick Santorum strongly endorsed Mitt Romney for the presidential nomination instead of John McCain saying, that if you wanted a conservative as the nominee of the Republican Party, “you must vote for Mitt Romney.” Well, nobody should be surprised. We all know Rick Santorum literally talks out of his ass.
