Our Recruiter in Chief – I’ll get your husband a job with one of our green energy boondoggles!!

During a Google+ townhall, Barry promised a woman he’d help find her husband a job.

The guy is a semiconductor engineer. The president said the fact he couldn’t find work was “interesting.”

During the back and forth between Obama and the wife of an unemployed engineer, Obama asked for his resume.

“Can I ask you what kind of engineer your husband is?,” Obama said to the wife of the unemployed engineer.

“He’s a semiconductor engineer,” she responded.

“It is interesting to me — and I meant what I said if your send me your husband’s resume, I’d be interested in finding out exactly what’s happening right there because the word that we’re getting is that somebody in that type of high-tech field, that kind of engineer, should be able to find something right away.

Solyndra is hiring! Isn’t it?

I think everyone should sent Barry their resume – President@whitehouse.gov – and let’s see if our Recruiter In Chief can put America back to work, one unemployed engineer at a time.

Remember New Jersey, only Trained Professionals are permitted to carry guns around here

Who trains these Keystone Kops?

The Jersey City police officer who accidentally shot himself during a fugitive apprehension in Elizabeth Thursday night was released from the hospital a few hours after the incident, a Jersey City police spokesman said this morning.

Officer Jesse Soto, 38, is assigned to a Hudson County task force unit that in turn forms part of the federal agency’s Regional Fugitive Task Force, comprised of federal, state, county and local police personnel.

He was assisting in the arrest of a female fugitive inside a North Broad Street residential building when his service weapon accidentally discharged shortly after 10 p.m., said Deputy U.S. Marshal Michael Schroeder.

A single bullet “came in and out of his abdomen,” Martinez said. “It didn’t hit any vital organs.”

Yeah, it takes Extra Special training to be able to shoot yourself in the belly. No wonder it isn’t available to us mere mortals.

That’s some mighty fine police work there Lou.

Justice Scalia: If you don’t like corporate-funded political ads, turn off the TV

Well, yeah:

U.S. Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia has a simple solution for people who don’t like all the political advertisements unleashed by the court’s decision two years ago that ended limits on corporate contributions in political campaigns — change the channel or turn off the TV.

“I don’t care who is doing the speech — the more the merrier,” Scalia said. “People are not stupid. If they don’t like it, they’ll shut it off.”

The correct response to something you don’t like is to articulate a coherent argument in opposition. Not to censor the guy who said it.

Warren Buffett, still trying to be a big shot with other people’s money

Warren Buffett still wants the government to raise his taxes. And he’s finally acknowledging our calls for him to “write a check.” His response?

You first.

Buffett has pledged to match 1 for 1 all such voluntary contributions made by Republican members of Congress. “And I’ll even go 3 for 1 for McConnell,” he says.

Don’t break your arm patting youself on the back there Warren.

It’s your idea to pay more taxes. So please, with all due respect, you go first.

What’s that? You don’t want to lead the way? Of course not, you’re just another limousine liberal worried the country will run out of other people’s money.

TSA Blogger Bob: Yes we confiscate your cupcakes, and thanks, because they’re delicious

Billions of dollars for high-tech bomb detecting equipment and TSA is confounded by a jar.

I wanted to make it clear that this wasn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill cupcake. If you’re not familiar with it, we have a policy directly related to the UK liquid bomb plot of 2006 called 3-1-1 that  limits the amount of liquids, gels and aerosols you can bring in your carry-on luggage. Icing falls under the “gel” category.  As you can see from the picture, unlike a thin layer of icing that resides on the top of most cupcakes, this cupcake had a thick layer of icing inside a jar.

It’s a dessert topping! It’s plastic explosive! You’re both right!

C’mon TSA, the security theater farce is getting long in the tooth.

Hollywood’s “Re-elect Obama” movie tramples National Security, divulges way too many secrets

Obama’s re-election comes first, and if Loose Lips Sink Ships? So what!

New Yorkers celebrated the death of Osama bin Laden when the terrorist mastermind behind 9/11 was killed in an operation led by the United States last May.

But now, investigators are probing whether the Obama administration divulged too many details of the secret raid on to Hollywood filmmakers.

Rep. Peter King, who heads the House Homeland Security Committee, has questioned how much information was shared about the U.S. special operations mission in Pakistan that killed the al-Qaeda leader.

King has expressed worries about the administration’s cooperation with Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc. and Kathryn Bigelow, director of the Oscar-winning picture “The Hurt Locker,” who is working on a movie about the hunt for bin Laden.

In August King wrote the inspectors general of the Pentagon and CIA noting a New York Times column saying that Sony and Bigelow had been given “top-level access to the most classified mission in history.”

In his letter, King said that leaks of classified information related to the bin Laden raid had already resulted in the arrests of Pakistanis believed by Pakistan authorities to have assisted the CIA.

Dead Pakistanis can’t vote (well, except in Chicago..) so who cares, right?
