The Right Scoop

Levin points out many things about Trump that show he is no conservative, but a few of the glaring ones are the fact that he support Charlie Crist over Marco Rubio twice, as well as calling for the impeachment of George W. Bush, accusing him of lying to get us in the war. Oh yeah, and he supported Universal Health Care in America, the Canadian style.

And there’s more. To Listen

His main point is put forth in a question he asks:

[The 2008 financial] crisis caught us by surprise. It was unpredictable – we didn’t see it coming.

Let me ask you this.

What if your President and your member of Congress saw it coming? What if they knew why it was happening, when it was going to happen, and more importantly they knew what to do to stop it and they had time to stop it but they didn’t, because of politics?

What would you think of that person?

Mr. Chairman that is where we are right now. This is the most predictable economic crisis we’ve ever had in the history of this country. And yet, we have a President who is unwilling to lead. We have too many politicians worried about the next election and not worried about the next generation.

AZ ‘Birther’ Bill Passes Senate

Requires Presidential Candidates to Show Proof of Citizenship

If Barack Obama wants to be included on the ballot in Arizona in 2012 he will have to show proof of citizenship. The Arizona senate passed their “birther” bill last night. The bill will now be sent to Republican Governor Jan Brewer who will sign it into law.

AZ Central reported:

The Arizona Legislature has become the first in the nation to pass a measure requiring presidential candidates to provide proof of citizenship in order to get on the state’s ballot.

House Bill 2177 got final approval Thursday night from the House. It will be transmitted to Gov. Jan Brewer, who will then have five days to sign it, veto it or do nothing and allow it to become law.

If Brewer chooses to veto the bill, Republican lawmakers could attempt an override vote. The bill would become law if two-thirds of legislators supported the override.

“It’s essential that we bring back the integrity to the office,” Rep. Judy Burges, R-Skull Valley, said during a recent debate on one of the so-called “birther” measures.

HB 2177, sponsored by Rep. Carl Seel, R-Phoenix, would require presidential and vice presidential candidates to provide the Arizona secretary of state with documents proving they are natural-born citizens. Read More

Hawaii gas prices set record on Maui; near all-time high

Hawaii's average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline hit a nation-leading $4.46 on Thursday, 28 cents higher than second-place California.

The state's average on Thursday was 12 cents higher than a week ago, 44 cents more than a month ago and 91 cents more than last year, according to AAA data.

It is just 5 cents below the all-time record of $4.51 set on July 31, 2008.

The most expensive gas in Hawaii was on the island of Maui, where the average price was $4.77, down a penny after hitting a record of $4.78 on Wednesday. The previous Wailuku record was $4.75 in August 2008.

The average price for a gallon of regular in Honolulu was $4.36, just five cents below the record high for Honolulu of $4.39 set on July 29, 2008

As most states brace for gas to climb to $4, Hawaii was the first to reach that mark a month ago. Now three other states share that distinction: Alaska, California and Illinois.

The national average reached $3.81 Thursday. Wyoming was the cheapest in the country at $3.53.

"There's no doubt that across the country the pain is being felt, but more acutely in Hawaii," said Marie Montgomery, spokeswoman for Automobile Club of Southern California, which covers Hawaii.  Read More
