Poll Question

Do you prefer your news:

A) Unvarnished

B) Unfiltered

C) Unvarnished and Unfiltered

Update: Looks like "C" wins. That's what I thought would be the result.

My Weapon of Choice

Beretta 9mm. This semi-automatic model, characterized by a solid locked breech system, with a rotating barrel, takes advantage of the maximum energy received during firing to produce a very low recoil. This pistol is particularly suitable for personal defense.

Chat away!

The Worst Part About Being Jeff Gannon (even though I'm not really Jeff Gannon)

The Lefties. Definitely the Lefties.

The Lefties don't understand that it's okay to liberally quote the verbiage of the party in power and present it as journalism. Duh. That's why it's so important to become the party in power.

Repeating the minorty party's talking points is just pathetic.

You Lefties are Going Bonkers

Just for the record, all material in these articles come from White House PRESS RELEASES, (you know, those things that a PRESS OFFICE puts out for use by the PRESS) and speech transcripts that are attributed to and accurately reflect the position of the President. In many cases I have liberally used the verbiage provided on key aspects of the issue because it is the precise expression of where the White House stands -- free or any "spin." Its the ultimate in journalistic honesty -- unvarnished and unfiltered. If only others would be as forthcoming.

A great question

Anyone see President Bush's press conference the other day? I thought this was the best journalistic question of the day:

"Q: Senate Democratic leaders have painted a very bleak picture of the U.S. economy. Harry Reid was talking about soup lines, and Hillary Clinton was talking about the economy being on the verge of collapse. Yet, in the same breath, they say that Social Security is rock-solid and there's no crisis there. How are you going to work -- you said you're going to reach out to these people -- how are you going to work with people who seem to have divorced themselves from reality?"

President Discusses Health Care Information Technology Benefits

I did some investigative journalism today and found this little nugget of unvarnished and unfiltered news. What I like the most about this unvarnished quote from President Bush is his willingness to frame his ideas in "other words." In other words, President Bush makes his position crystal clear. I present to you a short excerpt from a speech made in Cleveland, OH, on January 27th, 2005. Enjoy!

"Let me give you an interesting idea that I think small business owners need to look at, and those are called health savings accounts -- or individuals need to look at it, or families need to look a health savings accounts. A health savings account is basically a plan that says you buy a high deductible, catastrophic plan -- in other words, you cover your first $2,000 of medical expenses, and then the insurance kicks in after that -- and that to cover the medical -- routine medical expenses up to $2,000 your business contributes tax-free into the plan, which is -- and if you don't spend the $2,000, in other words, if you make right choices about how you live and what you put into your body, in other words, if you prevent disease by exercising on a daily basis, and there's money not spent in the account, you can roll it over from one year to the next tax-free. And as you withdraw the money, you can do so tax-free."

How I operate

Welcome to my blog.

I am a journalist. And in order to achieve the ultimate in journalistic honesty, I vow to liberally use the verbiage of the Bush Administration in order to give you - - - my readers who I respect so much - - - a precise expression of where the White House stands. I will also pass along any facts and figures they offer. Enjoy.
