WASHINGTON -- House Speaker John A. Boehner has vividly stepped up his attacks on President Obama, calling the president's visits to college campuses a blatant campaign pitch for reelection -- and "pathetic. " "This is beneath the dignity of the White House," Boehner said Thursday, calling on the administration to reimburse the president for taxpayer-funded travel this week. "It doesn't even pass the straight test, are you kidding me?" Congress is preparing for a new fight against Obama over keeping student loan interest rates low. Rates are set to double to 6.8% on July 1 unless Congress acts.

House Speaker John A.

Reporting from Sacramento -- John R. Bolton, the former ambassador to the United Nations who is weighing a presidential run in 2012, accused President Obama on Friday of failing to address threats to U.S. national security and called the administration's approach to the crisis in Libya "pathetic. " Hours after the president warned that the United Nations was ready to launch a military strike to defend the Libyan people if their leader Moammar Kadafi did not halt his attacks on civilians and pull back from the rebel stronghold of Benghazi and three other cities, Bolton cast the president as indecisive, inconsistent and uninterested in foreign policy.

It was hard to argue with the accountant, John Shaw , recommending to Georgia Frontiere she move her Rams to St. Louis, where she would collect more than $25 million a year. A woman has to shop after all. The blunder of all blunders, though, belongs to Al Davis , who has become a blithering idiot with the passage of time and so many losing years, the Rams handing the Los Angeles market to him in 1994, and Davis fumbling the opportunity. A brand new stadium at Hollywood Park was waiting on his signature, luxury boxes and oodles of money to be made.

I understand the Aston Martin DBS Volante is not for everybody. Not everyone will care for a $300,000, 12-cylinder, open-top super car that looks like love feels and sounds like whiskey tastes. But if you are one of these people -- these nugatory finger-waggers, these buzz-killing harpies of righteous socialism -- please, sit next to someone else at dinner. I will stick a fork in your eye. Yes, of course it's a car for rich jackasses, preening showoffs and enviro-criminals.
