Saturday Night News Roundup
So, what happened with Benghazi? Hillary Clinton went in front of the Senate and the House and Republicans had nothing. Basically, they rehash the same old arguments and the same old allegations. The bottom line, as I see it, is that our embassy in Benghazi was attacked. Neither President Barack Obama nor Hillary Clinton attacked our embassy. Instead, our embassy was attacked by a group that was some sort of offshoot of Al Qaeda. I do not think that the American people learned anything.
I have no idea what’s going on in Mali.
Sometimes I wonder what they are thinking in the White House. How did they decide releasing a photo of the president shooting skeet at Camp David was going to quell the clamor from gun advocates? This is just like the birth certificate debate. Now they’re going to say he didn’t shoot enough. Now they’re going to say that the picture was Photoshopped. Now they’re going to ask for a picture of him shooting a gun when he was a boy because you can’t love guns unless you actually shoot them as a child. Will the nonsense never cease?
Cardinal Roger Mahony stated that he did not know how to deal with the child sex abuse cases. I guess this is supposed to be an excuse.
Last year, I tried to keep up with some financial data. I tried to keep up with the bank problem list. These are institutions that the Federal Reserve worried about. The unofficial list declines to 822 institutions.
I guess I should’ve started this post with Friday’s news that the economy added 157,000 jobs in January. As I’ve stated on a number of occasions, the economy needs to do better. We truly need for the economy to take off. We need more stimulus.
Hey, it is Saturday night. Are you looking for a good scandal? How about the Nebraska lieutenant-governor resigning abruptly after it was found out that he called four different women on his government issued cell phone?
