was amusing. Deutsch was going on about how problems are not fast fix problems and it’s the country’s fault that we aren’t patient enough to let President Obama to solve them.

Joe Scarborough correctly pointed out that the media (or as he put it the “refs”) gave him every call for the longest time and now he can’t catch one.

I can’t see holding a pity party for the most powerful man in the world because he is expected to do the job that he begged the American People to give him.

…that they are all Marxists it makes perfect sense.” meme in play. In fact three of them:

Item: Apparently environmental groups have decided that their love for the environment doesn’t trump their loyalty to the dear leader president.

Actress Q’orianka Kilcher chained herself to the White House fence while her mother slathered the “Pocahontas” star in black paint meant to look like oozing crude.

Kilcher’s cause? Not the Gulf spill at all but oil-related abuses of indigenous people in Peru, whose president was visiting Obama that day.

As the greatest environmental catastrophe in U.S. history has played out on Obama’s watch, the environmental movement has essentially given him a pass — all but refusing to unleash any vocal criticism against the president even as the public has grown more frustrated by Obama’s performance.

About a dozen environmental groups took out a full page ad in the Washington Post Tuesday – not to fault Obama over the ecological catastrophe but to thank him for putting on hold an Alaska drilling project.

After all its one thing to protect the environment it’s quite another to protect the higher cause of Obama, and if the environment has to suffer well so be it. After all once oil drilling is allowed in Alaska, you can’t fund raise based on stopping it can you?

Item: Speaking of oil drilling apparently.

The seven experts who advised President Obama on how to deal with offshore drilling safety after the Deepwater Horizon explosion are accusing his administration of misrepresenting their views to make it appear that they supported a six-month drilling moratorium — something they actually oppose.

You mean that the administration is actually misrepresenting the facts from their own reports? Why would one do such a thing? Why because the ends justify the means of course.

Item: Mosab Yousef is the son of a founder of Hamas founder who eventually decided what was being done was wrong, converted to Christianity and used his position to give Israel information that saved lives. He is intimately familiar with the mind set of terror and has written a book on the subject called Son of Hamas. You would think that this is exactly the type of person we want to encourage and to protect. You would apparently think wrong:

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano believes Mosab Yousef is a national security threat, and wants to send him back to Palestine. According to Yousef writing on his publisher’s blog, he is now Homeland Security File# A 088 271 051. He is scheduled to appear before Immigration Judge Rico J. Bartolomei at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Court in San Diego on June 30th at 8 a.m.

As you can guess people of sense are up in arms over this nonsense. The only people he is a threat to is our enemies.

Forgetting the fact for the moment that letting him stay is the right thing to do, letting him stay is also the SMART thing to do. How are we going to encourage people to be warn us on terror attacks if we throw people who help stop them under the bus? Not a wise recruitment tool.

I would encourage you to contact your representatives on this matter.

Why on earth would this administration act this way? The question answers itself.

You end up ignorant of things that reporters and bloggers have known for days:

TAPPER: I talked to a guy who runs a company in Maine that offers boom, and he has – he says – the ability to make 90,000 feet of boom a day. High quality. BP came there 2 weeks ago, looked at it, they are doing another audit today. He is very frustrated, he says he has a lot of high quality boom to go and it is taking a long time for BP to get its act together. Don’t you need this boom right now?

ALLEN: Oh we need all the boom wherever we can get it. If you give me the information off camera I’ll be glad to follow up.

Captain Ed asks the questionof the day:

Er, isn’t this the very information that the White House and Interior are supposed to know before we do? Yet three days ago, Allahpundit featured not one but two videos showing the frustation of Packgen’s management that their decision to produce high-quality boom to meet the expected demand has left them with a lot of unpurchased inventory, while the oil continues its way to Gulf coastlines.

Given this administration the old rule concerning not attributing to malice what can be attributed to stupidity is pretty strong.

…as Morning Joe broadcasts from Pensacola.

Now Joe is from Pensacola so it makes sense but no tough question has headed Crist’s way from these guys. Like for example is he buying any of those booms from Maine, they’ve known about them for a little while now, has Crist purchased any to protest the beach?

Just askin’

Update: In fairness they had Marco Rubio on for a segment or two as well. No sign of Kendrick Meek.
