...who's the stupidest Democrat of them all?
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday that every child born in the United States should get a $5,000 "baby bond" from the government to help pay for future costs of college or buying a home.
The New York senator did not offer any estimate of the total cost of such a program or how she would pay for it. Approximately 4 million babies are born each year in the United States...
...Earlier this month, Time magazine proposed a $5,000 baby bond program
So Hillary takes her talking points from the mainstream media? No wonder the editorial boards kvell over him...
And in this Corner, we present John Edwards:
Democratic candidate John Edwards offered an apocalyptic prediction for young black males:
“We cannot build enough prisons to solve this problem. And the idea that we can keep incarcerating and keep incarcerating — pretty soon we’re not going to have a young African-American male population in America. They’re all going to be in prison or dead. One of the two.”
Hyperbole much? Despite popular misperception and those who find it a convenient talking point to illustrate inescapable racism, there are more young African-American men in college than in prison.
I don't know how often we will see Nancy Pelosi asked to help out on the campaign trail:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called a plan to build fencing along parts of the Mexico border a "terrible idea" that overlooks local communities.
"I have been against the fence, I thought it's a bad idea even when it was just a matter of discussion," said Pelosi, D-Calif....
...Pelosi also touted legislation known as the DREAM Act that would make it easier for some illegal immigrants to receive higher education benefits.
And finally, even I cannot argue that Obama Barak is truly a man with big dreams...or are they hallucinations?
Barack Obama's campaign manager David Plouffe released a memo last weekend making the case that Obama's lag in national polls is due to the exclusion of a "hidden vote" - namely, the ever-elusive youth vote.
The Chicago Sun-Times' Lynne Sweet called these voters “hidden souls in the Obama Army,” and wondered whether "the campaign team for Obama can deliver them."
So Obama takes his talking points from the mainstream media? Gee, no wonder editorial boards kvell over him. Methinks Barak should ask Kerry how easy it is to pry those college kids from the bong on a off-Tuesday....
Finally, Bill Richardson's military spending plan sounds like something he worked out with al-Qaeda:
The plan lists more than a dozen specific programs that can be cut, reduced, or delayed, which he claims “will give the United States $57.14 billion per year to reinvest in urgent domestic priorities.”
Among other things, the list includes:
$8 billion from scaling back the National Missile Defense program.
$3 billion from eliminating the Pentagon's ‘Space-Based Offensive Weapons'.
$5 billion from eliminating the Reliable Replacement Warhead and Complex 2030 programs to develop new nuclear weapons.
$8 billion from reducing the U.S. nuclear posture to 600 deployed warheads, with 400 in reserve and eliminating all "tactical" nuclear weapons.
$540 million from canceling the Airborne Laser Program.
Gee, Bob, which one do I choose? They're all so damn stupid...
