The guy that many people believe will be Barack Obama’s successor, Senator Cory Booker (D–New Jersey), said from the Congressional floor (during a Congressional hearing about climate change, of course) that his first and only driving trip was from New Jersey … to Hawaii.

His first vehicle was apparently the Magic School Bus, or perhaps he can actually drive on water. Or maybe Cory Booker is actually James Bond, and he had just gotten a prototype of an amphibious car from Q. I don’t know.

Right after I turned seventeen and got my New Jersey driver’s license, one of the earliest places I drove was a trip—the only trip I’ve ever taken—to … was to Hawaii, and I found it to be an extraordinary state, except for one…

At which point another Democrat, Martin Heinrich, saved Booker’s bacon, kind of, by stating rather baldly: “You didn’t drive to Hawaii.”

His bit about driving to Hawaii is almost as good as Obama’s bit about being born there. Boom.

Maybe Cuomo is doing the rest of the nation a favor. If he alienates enough pro-lifers, who move elsewhere, the state will continue to see its influence wane — as it further loses more Congressional seats to southern and western states as conservative New Yorkers look for more welcoming places to live.

Moderate Republicans, or those most willing to capitulate to Cuomo’s own extreme agenda, still have the welcome mat rolled out.

I want to thank Top Cop Issa for leaking these docs !

Henry Chao is the Deputy Chief Information Officer (CIO) and the Deputy Director of the Office of Information Services (OIS) in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid .

Hmmm, seems as if Old Henry has disappeared from the website.

On Sept. 27, Mr. Chao and another official sent a memo to the head of the agency recommending that the website go live on Oct. 1, even though security testing was “only partly completed.” At that time, he said, he was not aware of the test findings that indicated possible risks to security.

In the interview, Mr. Chao said that government documents and his recollection suggested “a failure to communicate” within the agency, and that it was “disturbing” that he had not been told of the potential security risks.

“I’m surprised,” he said when he was shown the Sept. 3 memo.

Controversy is brewing around a school district in Denton, Texas, that is said to be using a United States history book that seems to summarize the Second Amendment inaccurately. However, the Denton Independent School District maintains it only uses the book as “supplemental” material and is “disseminating the correct information on the Second Amendment” from other texts.

But there are several other schools that appear to be using the book, too.

“The people have the right to keep and bear arms in a state militia,” the definition in the book, “United States History: Preparing for the ” Advanced Placement Examination”, which acts as a study guide for the Advanced Placement U.S. history test, reads.

The book also compares American Revolution fighters to the “guerrilla bands that fought in such countries as Cuba in the 1950s and Vietnam in the 1960s.”

“While many applauded the Boston Tea Party as a justifiable defense of liberty, others thought the destruction of private property was far too radical,” the book reflects.

Another key question yet to be answered is: If the textbook is indeed a study guide for the “advanced placement exam,” does the exam also reflect the book’s content?

Messages left with the publisher of the textbook have not been returned.

Obama took questions from the press during his trip to Stockholm, Sweden ahead of the G20 economic summit in St. Petersburg Wednesday morning, during which he argued that his “red line” of chemical weapons use in Syria was indicative of a global norm of warfare that had been endorsed by Congress.

“I didn’t set a red line,” Obama said. “The world set a red line. The world set a red line when governments representing 98% of the world’s population said the use of chemical weapons are abhorrent, and passed a treaty forbidding their use even when countries are engaged in war.

Congress set a red line when it ratified that treaty. Congress set a red line when it indicated, in a piece of legislation entitled the Syria Accountability Act, that some of the horrendous things happening on the ground there need to be answered for.”

“So, when I said in a press conference that my calculus about what’s happening in Syria would be altered by the use of chemical weapons, which the overwhelming consensus of humanity says is wrong, that wasn’t something I just kind of made up. I didn’t pluck it out of thin air. There’s a reason for it.”

“My credibility is not on the line,” Obama continued. “The international community’s credibility is on the line, and America’s and Congress’ credibility is on the line, because we give lip service to the notion that these international norms are important.”

Obama reminded everybody he had opposed the Iraq War, and did not want to repeat the mistake of acting based on “faulty intelligence.” But he also maintained that the U.N. inspectors had found evidence of the use of chemical weapons, and that even Iran and Syria itself did not dispute that they had been used.

He also expressed confidence that Congress would grant him authorization to engage militarily in Syria, though he insisted that he reserved the right to act on his own if the U.S.’s national security were threatened..

“I would not have taken this before Congress just as a symbolic gesture,” Obama said. “We will be stronger as a country in our response if the president and Congress does it together.”

In all his lying glory…

The $30,000 being spent on the project apparently does not come from HHS’s Obamacare-promotion budget, but from another fund.
