WH marks chief of staff’s birthday with pic of President Ego [photo]

http://twitter.com/#!/exjon/status/407684563171692544 Is there any occasion the White House won’t turn into an ego stroke for the narcissist in chief? Whether it’s honoring Rosa Parks, Neil Armstrong, JFK or his own chief of staff, it’s all about Obama. Always: http://twitter.com/#!/FitzFox5DC/status/407711996919177216 White House photographer Pete Souza notes that Denis McDonough’s daughter is also pictured in that photo. http://twitter.com/#!/petesouza/status/407660932714622976 The official White House feed neglected to mention her. Funny that. http://twitter.com/#!/acceou/status/407762412482203648 Related: ‘Smugness nirvana attained’: @BarackObama’s Rosa Parks anniversary tribute […]

‘Never seen anything like this’: Are Holder, DOJ openly defying Utah on same-sex marriage?

http://twitter.com/#!/Diddley_Squat/status/421695453655093248 Editor’s note: The title of this post originally read “‘Never seen anything like this’: Are Holder, DOJ openly defying Utah same-sex marriage ruling?”. The title and text have been amended for clarification. While the governor’s office said it would not recognize the marriages, the issue of recognition was not part of the SCOTUS decision. If there was any remaining doubt that the Obama administration considers itself above the law, this might take care of it: http://twitter.com/#!/PeteWilliamsNBC/status/421687765164511232 This past […]

http://twitter.com/#!/jpodhoretz/status/415200217731194880 Remember when Valerie Jarrett promised that President Obama would be signing up for Obamacare today? Shockah! That promise came with an important disclaimer: “To be taken with a squillion grains of salt.” You see, it was just a “symbolic” gesture: http://twitter.com/#!/RBPundit/status/415199917519302657 Via Politico: In what an official acknowledged is a “symbolic” move since the president gets his medical care from the military, Obama selected a low-cost bronze plan through the District of Columbia exchange.
