Obama: “[I know Democrats lied to me when they said] voting for ObamaCare was ‘the right thing to do.’”
Words. Just words. At this afternoon’s press conference, President Obama, sans teleprompter, all but admitted his ousted Democrat colleagues who voted for ObamaCare have no scruples. Following a question from Jake Tapper, Obama responded: “And what they’ve told me is, you know, ‘We don’t have regrets because [we] feel like we were doing the right thing.’ And they may be just saying that to make | Read More »
Look inward, Congressman Clyburn. Look inward.
As long as Congressman Clyburn is casting aspersions, making baseless accusations, and touting conspiracy theories, maybe what really happened was that Democrat operatives tried to wreck havoc with the Republican primary and it backfired? Thus, with Democrat votes being frittered away in the Republican primary, what’s his name who came in 2nd in the Democrat primary did not receive the votes he would have received | Read More »
In which Nick Clegg impersonates/reincarnates Barack Obama
Nick Clegg’s rise to prominence is eerily similar that of the empty suit Obama, with Clegg copying Obama literally in deed and in word. All talk, no substance. But the U.K. is swooning. Like our Dear Leader, Clegg’s dossier-version of the teleprompter tells him exactly what do. Except I bet he wishes his aide put it in his pocket and walked to the hotel, thus | Read More »
Cash for Flunkers?: Tax credits for hiring the unemployed and the law of “unanticipated” consequences.
*Disclaimer: Almost all people who are out of work are unemployed through no fault of their own. I have great sympathy for you and understand the worries you have for the well-being of your families and wish you God’s blessings. H/T to Haystack for his excellent diary on free markets. This post started out as a comment to your diary, but (I believe) addresses a | Read More »
*Still* a liar and a thief
After describing some challenging times in America’s history, Obama completely misrepresented the unemployment rate under Bush when he stated: But the devastation remains. One in 10 Americans still cannot find work. (emphasis added) Lie #1 came right off the bat during BO’s SOTU — and his transparent lie made me furious. The unemployment rate is not still 10%. Dec. 2008 unemployment was 7.2% (released beginning of | Read More »
KosKids Continue to use WTC Stock Photo
UPDATE: The original DailyKos video link had the WTC stock photo. The updated video link replaced the WTC photo. I went to see what the KosKids’ latest complaints were and found this diary by a front pager regarding Scott Brown’s connections to the evillll Wall Street, which also included a link to the latest DSCC video. The kosiacs don’t realize it, but the video used | Read More »
Obama’s e-mail supporting Coakley implies Brown’s swearing-in cannot be delayed
Obama e-mailed it in. In his e-mail message of support for Coakely, he (or maybe it was TOTUS) wrote this: The outcome of this race couldn’t be more important. To help Americans get back to work, jump-start a clean-energy economy, and put a stop to abuses on Wall Street that place us at risk, I need every ally possible in the Senate. You’ve worked so | Read More »
Obama doesn’t believe in C-SPAN…and then wonders why C-SPAN and the public don’t believe in him
On November 28, 2007, the official BarackObama.com website (not the my.barackobama.com version) touted Obama’s promise to have the health care negotiations televised on C-SPAN. At that time, his promise had not yet reached its expiration date. Although Obama made his C-SPAN promise at least eight times on the pre-presidency campaign trail, I couldn’t find any of his seven other C-SPAN promises on his website that | Read More »
To quote a certain Teleprompter: “Words. Just words.”
Thank you for your historic and unprecedented transparency, Mr. President. Will you please calibrate and make perfectly clear for us lowly Joes what we should do with our dictionaries? And yes, you did say that during your interview with Chuck Todd about trying KSM in a civilian court. The only difference between you, Eric Holder, and Robert Gibbs is that you use a teleprompter every chance you | Read More »
America’s Truth Detector vs. the poll watchers
The NFL has put on a fine display of New Age leadership in the era of Obama. Truth is irrelevant; the new great moral standard is whether facts are “divisive.” Rush offered a compelling analysis of human relations and motives. Rather than addressing the issues he presented, the NFL dropped out of the debate. Nations, businesses, religions, and individuals that willingly choose to ignore problems because doing | Read More »
Obama makes himself perfectly clear: Words matter. Actions don’t.
The former community organizer continues to vote present rather than lead. During the campaign Obama and his liberal friends (minus Cindy Sheehan) proclaimed Afghanistan as the “good war.” A full year after Senator Obama was named chairman of the subcommittee on Europe, then-Senator and now-Secretary of State Clinton saw right through Obama’s opaqueness. Minus his binky, Obama proceeded to stumble into an explicit admission he was guilty as | Read More »
Liberals don’t realize they are actually agreeing with Palin by disagreeing with Palin
To enraged Obama supporters and liberal politicians who respond to Sarah Palin and other fishy e-mailers by screaming: “But that’s not in the bill! That’s not in the bill!” let me grant your argument for the time being. Your disgust with Sarah Palin’s comments indicates that you actually agree with her. Like many (such as Bob Beckle) who blow a gasket when defending Obama against | Read More »
Kostituency: What’s in a name? (h/t to Caleb)
H/T to Caleb’s most recent post, in which he coined a new word — literally! No doubt out of fear of being seen as a “sell-out” by his kostituency, Olbermann… In honor of Caleb, we need to further define what a “kostituency” consists of. The stupid dictionary seems to be the ideal vehicle for doing so. http://stupidictionary.com/kostituency
“The report, I believe, will be concluded at some point this week. We’ll release its findings and release a photo,” White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said during his daily press briefing. So the generous one will now let us see “a” (i.e., one) photo of the New York City flyover? I wonder what it will show? Meanwhile, more Abu Ghraib photos will be released, along with | Read More »
Taliban: US “Honorable Reconciliation” Offer “Lunatic”
When I saw this headline I thought it was an Onion-type April Fool’s Day story. Unfortunately, after clicking on the link I learned it’s not. The “one” is a joke.
Tale of the Tape: Uh-bama vs. Gibbs
Tale of the Tape Obama Gibbs Race Black White Hair Graying Brown Eyes Unknown: Always looking up with nose in air, putting on aires. (Our Dear Leader won’t deign to look at you, especially if you’re one of those bitter Pennsylvanians who cling to their guns or religion. Blue: Makes eye contact. (Seems to be a decent fellow, ala Tito-the-Builder | Read More »
Obama Double Talk
Historic? Absolutely! For the first time in our Republic’s history, the American people have elected a president who is not just a fetus killer, but a live baby killer as well. (And a Marxist on top of that.) I can tolerate inept tax policies and even wanting to pull out of Iraq, but Obama’s disrespect for life is beyond the pale. That audio Erick posted | Read More »
