House Speaker John Boehner, the most powerful Republican in the country, tells Jay Leno hat he has no interest in wanting to be the President of the United States. The reasons given is that he smokes cigarettes, drinks red wine and plays golf. Presidents Bush and Obama have proved that you don’t have to give up golf in order to be President. President Obama also spent at least the first year of his Presidency smoking cigarettes. And after President Obama’s well-touted “beer summit”, we are certain that Boehner wouldn’t have to give up his alcoholic beverages. Perhaps the House Speaker is deflecting anticipation that the Republican Party will ask him to run as a candidate for President of the USA.

House Minority Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a huge 49ers fan. So much so that she says she’s wearing a bracelet with Joe Montana’s jersey #14. Interesting. He wore #16. She also likes the current 49er quarterback with his “big arms and tattoos”. We are not sure if she knows his name. She says the 49ers will be playing the Washingtonian.. uhh.. Red.. Seahawks. She talks about having a chocolate bet with the “members from Washington state” and looks forward to enjoying chicken chakalaka from North Carolina during the game. She informs us that whoever has the most numbers at the end of the game is the winner. She says sports is fun because “it knows that it is not political”. Then she says the game is sad because “our stadium down is being shut down” and talks about the new stadiums for the SF Giants and the 49ers.

In 2010, Republican Congressman Tom McClintock warned that Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Meg Whitman would simply be the “third term of Arnold Schwarzenegger”.
Numerous conservatives throughout California were questioning just how moderate or liberal Meg Whitman was. Her answers were constantly elusive on nearly every subject and many “tea party” Republicans had had enough with her non-answers.
Finally at a tightly controlled Whitman rally, which was attended by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a conservative attendee was able to directly question Meg.
“What are you hiding?” shouted Ed Buck, in the front row of the 400-person event. “You’re looking like Arnold in a dress”.
Before Whitman could respond, Christie stepped down from the stage and got in Buck’s face.
“Hey, listen. You know what. You want to yell, yell at me,” Christie said, shutting down Buck as Christie’s bodyguards calmly but quickly approached the two men. “It’s people who raise their voices and yell and scream like you who are dividing this country. We’re here to bring this country together.”
The establishment Republicans in the audience cheered and applauded Christie’s ability to shut this concerned conservative up.

On a video that we showed you last week, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry seemed aghast that there is an adopted African-American baby in Mitt Romney’s family. Scroll down a few stories to find the original video.
“Everybody loves a baby picture,” Harris-Perry said, “and this was one that really, a lot of people had emotions about. There on Governor Romney’s knee is his adopted grandson, who is an African-American, Kieran Romney.”
As Harris-Perry asked for captions, panelist Pia Glenn sang “One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same”.
“And that little baby, front and center, would be the one,” she added.
This made Harris-Perry and her guests laugh.
Harris-Perry introduced the photo so that her guests could mock and ridicule the little baby. At the time, Harris-Perry seemed appalled that the Romney family would adopt an African-American baby.
However, this last weekend Harris-Perry decided to take time to apologize, saying that she crossed the line in attacking a member of Romney’s family. Then as she was apologizing to other families in general, who have chosen to adopt babies of other races, she appeared to start crying. Was this authentic or acting?
Regardless, last Sunday morning Romney said that he accepts Harris-Perry’s apology.

News 10 Sacramento had this report on New Year’s Day last week.
According to the report, people reported seeing mysterious lights in the sky on New Year’s Eve, from Placer County to the Hollywood Hills.
Terry and Hans Mauth of Auburn said they watched a large egg-shaped object with a bright light shining upward drift over their neighborhood, then suddenly accelerate.
“There was no sound, that’s the funny thing,” Terry said. “Just this big illuminated form.”
Steven Brown of Sacramento reported a similar sighting above Belle Cooledge Park.
“Whatever it was moved up and to the left,” he explained. “It hovered there for probably about 60 seconds, then it took off at a high rate of speed.”
Kaye Pinlac of Stockton reported seeing multiple glowing objects that appeared in a formation.
“They were almost in a diamond or triangle shape,” he said. “Then they just started separating.”
Pinlac provided a link to a YouTube video posted Wednesday that he says showed a very similar pattern over the Hollywood Hills just after midnight, about the same time he watched the lights over Stockton.
Some News10 viewers said the lights might have been floating luminaria light bags, a suggestion dismissed by Terry Mauth.
“It was too huge to be a birthday balloon or something like that,” she said. “And it moved too quickly.”
The lights in the sky were apparently not seen by any pilots or air traffic controllers. FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said there was no unusual flight activity reported Tuesday night.
