Quote of the Day

Filed under: Obama — DRJ @ 6:47 pm

[Guest post by DRJ]

Guess who isn’t interested in words?

The president also defended not having spoken to [BP CEO Tony] Hayward.

“I have not spoken to him directly,” he told Lauer. “Here’s the reason. Because my experience is, when you talk to a guy like a BP CEO, he’s gonna say all the right things to me. I’m not interested in words. I’m interested in actions.”

I feel the same way about Obama’s words.

Obama also said he would have fired BP’s CEO by now if he were in charge of the company.

I feel the same way about America’s CEO.

El Paso Border Patrol Agent Kills Attacker

Filed under: Immigration — DRJ @ 5:12 pm

[Guest post by DRJ]

A 15-year-old Mexican boy was shot and killed yesterday by a U.S. Border Patrol agent near the Paseo del Norte bridge in El Paso, Texas. Reports say several agents had been attacked by illegal immigrants throwing rocks.

Mexican authorities have objected to the use of guns in response to a rock attack as a “disproportionate use of force.”


Vote for Mickey Kaus

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:36 am

You can vote for him if you are a “decline to state” or a Democrat.

Mickey Kaus: He’s not Barbara Boxer!

And he is strong on immigration and unions. A vote for him is a vote for the importance of those issues.

Primary Tuesday

[Guest post by DRJ]

Politico says there are 9 races to watch in today’s elections:

  • Arkansas Senate. Union favorite Lt. Gov. Bill Halter is a 5 point favorite over incumbent Sen. Blanche Lincoln.
  • South Carolina Governor. Making TV wrestling drama look tame, the SC Governor’s race shows Nikki Haley with a commanding lead.
  • South Carolina 4th District. Incumbent Representative Bob Inglis has reportedly opposed the Iraq surge and other conservative positions, leading him to run 2nd in his primary race.
  • Nevada Senate. In the saga of Harry “the Comeback Kid” Reid vs the Republicans, who will the GOP pick to take on the Kid?
  • Nevada Governor. Will Nevada Republicans turn out sitting Governor Jim Gibbons, who polls dismally against likely Democratic candidate Rory Reid (son of Harry)? Gibbons’ GOP opponent Brian Sandoval thinks he can do it.
  • California Governor. We’ll soon know whether Meg Whitman or Steve Poizner will face Jerry Brown next November.
  • California Senate. Admit it, these are the races of the day for fans. Will Fiorino beat Campbell and DeVore? Can Boxer hold out against Kaus?
  • Iowa Governor. Former Iowa GOP Gov. Terry Branstad returns. If he wins, he could give first-term Gov. Chet Culver a run for his money.
  • Virginia 5th District. Vulnerable freshman Democratic Rep. Thomas Perriello finds out today who his GOP opponent will be in November. Politico says this race will say a lot about the Tea Party.
  • Personally I’m watching Arkansas, California and Nevada.
