Weekly Wrap-Up

President Obama is still touting solar energy, but shouldn't he be touting his (and the late Ted Kennedy's) signature legislation? I surmise the reason he isn't is because Obamacare is heading to the US Supreme Court on Monday. Charles Krauthammer' column spells explains Obamacare as only he can. The Heritage Foundation does a good job in spelling out the ways Obamacare kills jobs. Do you think the Supreme Court will strike the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act? We will not know until June, but you can cast you vote in this week's poll.

President Obama on his Energy/Campaign trip blames Congress for Solyndra's failure and at some point, rest assured, he will find a way to blame George W. Bush for his own support of solar energy. President Obama is trying his hardest to manipulate the facts on energy, but too many sources say his rhetoric is just that, rhetoric. Solyndra is not the only problem, one-third of clean energy loans are raising the flag of caution.

President Obama anticipated the spike in gas prices; according to him the payroll tax cut was meant to off-set the spike. With that kind of logic, can we anticipate a corporate tax cut? Are we heading towards a gasoline shortage during peak driving season? What will President Obama's response be as refineries close due to the requirement to have different grade (summer and winter) gasoline? President Obama may be trying to fix the gasoline spike by "speeding up" the Keystone Pipeline XL, but we won't forget his making calls to Democratic Senators to vote against the pipeline.

Planned Parenthood continually crosses the moral line, but Dr. Amy T. Schalet's audacity to suggest what a "good parent" should allow their teens to do at home is outrageous. What is even more disturbing is that Dr. Schalet is an assistant sociology professor at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and most likely brings this view to class. On the bright side, 282 corporations have stopped funding Planned Parenthood.

AG Eric Holder has a lot of explaining to do regarding the latest findings on Fast and Furious.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, Eric Holder should resign immediately.

We should all be concerned that government has steadily increased its consumer lending. Governments growth is out of control and will eventually destroy the greatest nation ever, if we do not take the steps needed to curtail it now. Edward J. Pinto explains the problems in a way even an ultra liberal can understand.

Enjoy the weekend!
