Robert Gibbs, World Class Moron, arguing with a member of the Indian Parliament like he's important or something. Imbecile.

Anthony G. Martin at the Examiner quotes a blogger who has insider information on the coming Obama Administration scandals:

In a previous report Conservative Examiner delved into the claims of a White House insider who is feeding information to a blogger who goes by the name of ‘Ulsterman.’ The report contained revelations of the pending unraveling of the Obama Presidency due to the President’s inability to deal with growing opposition among the citizens and in the halls of Congress–and a scandal simmering under the surface that could explode at any moment.

‘Deep Throat’ also claimed that Obama is so self-absorbed that he actually believes he is adored by throngs of people all over the world.  The observation was also made that the President is exhibiting bizarre behavior that suggests emotional instability.
1.)Indeed, there is a growing movement on the Hill by top Democrats to pressure Pelosi to withdraw from consideration as Minority Leader.

2.) Deep Throat discusses ‘the Hillary issue,’ claiming unequivocally that the former First Lady still desperately wants to be President and that the only thing needed to get her to mount a campaign to oust Obama as the Democratic nominee for President in 2012 is a continued decline in the economy.

3.) The White House insider reluctantly discusses the birth certificate issue after being pressured by Ulsterman, and suggests that the issue is simply too hot to handle.

Deep Throat was quick to assert, however, that the brewing scandal at the White House has absolutely nothing to do with the birth certificate issue.
Questions have been raised as to the veracity of the insider’s information.  But he correctly stated weeks in advance that Summers and Emanuel would be the first to leave the Administation–which turned out to be true.  He now says that Gibbs is next.

I can’t wait to see ol’ Gibbsy pack his bags and un-ass the Briefing Room. His smug obnoxiousness just reeks to high heaven. Another casualty of the Obama Administration unemployment.

So I’m watching this Health Care Horror Show unfold before my very eyes, and I’m getting more and more frustrated with the smirks on the faces of our Idiot President and Joe “Smiley the Drunk” Biden (whose mama apparently never taught him not to say certain words in public).  And I’m watching the Interwebs and seeing that the Republicans – most notably my own Senator and Secretary of the Senate Republican Caucus John Cornyn – have gone all wobbly about whether they actually WANT to repeal the Obamacare Obamanation or not.

And they haven’t bothered to ask US if we want it repealed, have they?

Apparently, the Democraps aren’t the only ones having communication problems with their constituents.

And I keep thinking that both the Dems and the wobbly Republicans need to be shown who the heck is in charge here –meaning We, the People.

Something simple so that a maximum number of people could participate.  The big rallies we had last year were nice, but a LOT of people who wished they had gone now, I’m sure . . . didn’t get to attend.

And that may be a plus for our side. Keep this as simple as possible. Low-tech. Low-Key, but noticeable.  And these are my thoughts:

  • TAKE THE DAY OFF – APRIL 16th, 2010.  It would be great if we shut down the economy completely, but I seriously doubt that would happen. But you can take your kids out of school for a family trip. Take a Personal Day at work. Call in sick. Call in ugly, for that matter. Just make your absence noticeable.
  • Meet somewhere at noon local time to Pray.  If you can get to Washington, get to Washington. Clog the streets. Assemble (peacefully, mind you) outside the centers of power; Congress, Supreme Court, White House.  If you CAN’T get to Washington, go to your local state capitol.  If you can’t get there, meet at the flagpole at your post Office. It’s the “Flash Mob” theory; we appear, we pray, we leave.  No shouting, no violence, no demonstations; just here and gone.
  • Bring A Copy of the Constitution With You to the Flash Mob.  Democrat or Republican or Libertarian; if you’re NOT for the Constitution, you’re not really much of an American, are you?
  • Clog Up The System. Commit acts of Civil Disobedience all day long, and particularly from noon to 1:00 pm local time — i.e., “lunch hour.”  If you’re in town, drive 20 mph during that time. If you’re on the Interstate, drive 55 mph. Slow everything down to a slow crawl. Let the masses FEEL your displeasure.
  • Call Your Congressman and Senators all day long.   Flood their switchboards. Tell them (if they fought Obamacare, the Stimulus, et al.) that you support what they were doing. If they voted FOR obamacare, the Stimulus, etc., let them know how unhappy you are. Remind them they have to come back and LIVE in your district when you vote them out of Congress in November; and make sure you’re clear that you’re doing everything to make that happen.
  • Call Bart Stupak and His Friends and Let Them Know How you Feel. Eagle Scouts, Elks, Knights of Columbus, National Guard, the American Legion, Wildlife Unlimited, and your local parish priests. Tell them how Stupak sold out Unborn Life for a few airports in his district. Ask them if there’s any way he can be removed from those organizations. Excommunication should be a real, viable option here.
  • Money Bomb the Conservative Candidates. It doesn’t have to be much, but give five dollars, ten dollars; whatever you can afford to your local conservative candidate. Five bucks is less than what you’ll probably spend on beer this weekend, right?  If you’re happy with your candidates or don’t have an  election this year, give money to a good out-of-state candidate. Mario Rubio in Florida. Marlin Stutzman in Indiana. There’s a ton of them: find one and donate.

I’m open to suggestions; and any big organization that wants to take this and run with it, be my guest.

Post your suggestions and thoughts in the Comments Section. Let’s get this ball rolling.  This is not Me, per se; it’s WE, THE PEOPLE.

Get a Move on, cowboy.

Thomas Washington on FaceBook sent me this message.

Many attempts have been made to bring charges against Barack Obama to force him to disclose information that proves he is Constitutionally eligible, through documents and records which instead are being kept sealed from the public’s scrutiny.

These are suits brought by attorneys against a presumptive President. Not A SINGLE ONE OF THEM has been allowed to be considered upon its merits, but each and every one has and is being deprived of proper handling by legal tricks called technicalities. This will continue unless WE SAY SOMETHING:   We stake the very future of our country on these legal proceedings, only to be disappointed time & again.

And except for writing a check and offering words of encouragement, there is not much we can do to get involved… or is there??

What if there was another approach, other than going directly against BO and demanding his Birth cert, that would accomplish the same thing, and more?

We are a Republic of powerful states. Think about how the Democratic Party got BO’s name on the ballot. The Dem’s ability to pull such an enormous fraud goes back to a systemic failure in State election protocol.

If we concentrate our efforts on who did the vetting in each of the states, BO’s utter lack of credentials would be exposed. We wouldn’t need to keep playing this game – is he or is he not a Natural Born Citizen, was he or wasn’t he born in the US, and even where’s the Birth Cert.?-

WE THE PEOPLE don’t need to prove or disprove any of this. What we need to do is QUESTION WITH BOLDNESS.

What was the proof used – the documents – that Nancy Pelosi (acting not as speaker, but as Dem. Convention Chair), Howard Dean (Chair of Dem. Party), and all the Democratic Party officials in all States who SWORE and SIGNED TO IT that BO is LEGALLY and CONSTITUTIONALLY eligible to get his name on the ballot in each of the states? They won’t have an answer.

In six lucky states the work has been done for you. Find out if your state REQUIRES certification that the Presidential Candidates are CONSTITUTIONALLY ELIGIBLE for the job. (Did you know that some states actually DON’T HAVE this requirement? Is your state one of them?)

Then find out who signed the forms that were submitted to the state election committee - in some cases Nancy Pelosi herself - and file a complaint with your state Attorney General as to HOW DID the person signing the form, swearing that BO was eligible to have his name put on the ballot in that state – HOW DID they know? WHAT PROOF did they have? Not only does this usurper need to be exposed before he does any more damage than he has already, but legal steps MUST be taken to insure this election Fraud never occurs again.

Note: Nancy Pelosi was alerted in a HAND DELIVERED note that there were questions about BO’s eligibility which she ignored. The DNC Attorney was asked for the proof that was used to vet BO, and the reply was that since they are a “private club” – they are not subject to the FOIA!

It’s a very interesting idea; take the fight from the Federal Government back to the states, where the real power resides after all. If two-thirds of the states were to challenge the election . . . something would have to happen.

Interesting idea. I’m printing mine tonight to mail tomorrow.

Just a snippet of some of the headlines from Drudge and Elsewhere today:


The C-Span President argues that not only didn’t President have the authority to promise that the Health Care Bill negotiation would be on C-SPAN; but that C-SPAN wouldn’t gie him more than an hour’s time anyway. Obviously, he thought C-SPAN would fall in line like General Motors, Chrysler, and Wall Street. (C-SPAN is not funded by the government like PBS; it’s funded by the cable companies themselves.)

Sen. Nelson[D]: We should have waited on health care…

Ben Nelson of Nebraska, who was given assurances that his state would be exempted from Medicare cuts in exchange for his “Yes” vote on the Healthcare Bill, is terrified of his chances for re-election now that public opinion has shifted squarely against him. He wonders if perhaps he was too hasty on Health Care?

Why yes, Ben, you were. You were indeed. Prepare to pay the penalty.

Dem congressman puts blame on leaders for slipping support…

Just stating the obvious. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are either (a) completely out of touch with reality, (b) delusional, or (c) think the American Public are so stupid or jaded that we’ll forget their complete betrayal of us when we go to the polls.

And Rep. Sestak is just now figuring this out. Lovely.

NOONAN: The Risk of Catastrophic Victory…

Peggy outlines the obvious. (See, this is the part I hate — waiting for the slow people to catch up with the reality we conservatives have been seeing for, oh, say THE LAST YEAR OR SO.)

Glut: Truckloads of Unused Swine Flu Vaccines in NY…

The Swine flu debacle is coming back to bite the Obama Administration in the butt. The complete mismanagement of this “epidemic” is a national disgrace. Kathleen Sebelius managed a minor outbreak for political gain and ended up neither managing it well nor gaining politically. Now millions of Americans have had the (admittedly minor) swine flu without the benefit of the vaccine; and the vaccine lies rotting without patients to administer the vaccine to.

These guys are just rank amateurs — and they are in charge of our country. That’s certainly a Great Big Honkin’ Change you can believe in, isn’t it?

How this can NOT have catastrophic consequences for the Democrats is beyond me; unless the American people are as stupid or jaded that they’ll forget their complete betrayal.

But i doubt that.

Under the “Let’s-Stick-Our-Heads-In-The-Sand” Category, Houston Police find a guy with a military rocket launcher and jihadist writings, but don’t bother to arrest him???

I had a State Trooper tell me one time “we do things differently here in Texas,” but I don’t think this is what he meant:

HOUSTON — Police went to a southwest Houston apartment to break up a disturbance but ended up finding something else, KPRC Local 2 reported Wednesday.

A woman called police on Monday and said a man was forcing his way into her apartment in the 5300 block of Elm Street.  When officers went inside, they found something that made them concerned enough to call the bomb squad.

They found an AT-4 shoulder-mounted rocket launcher. It can shoot a missile nearly 1,000 feet through buildings and tanks.

“It gives infantrymen the advantage with an ultra-light weapon that can stop vehicles, armored vehicles as well as main battle tanks and fortifications,” said Oscar Saldivar of Top Brass Military and Tactical on the North Freeway.

That type of rocket launcher has been used in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The renter of the apartment didn’t want to talk to KPRC Local 2.  “This is my house,” the woman said. ” Get away from here. I don’t want to talk to nobody.” (sic)

The woman did tell police that the rocket launcher belonged to Nabilaye I. Yansane, someone whom she allowed to store items at her apartment.

According to court documents, officers also found Jihadist writings that allegedly belonged to Yansane.

Yansane was charged with criminal trespassing and pleaded guilty. He was sentenced to three days in jail, which he has already served. No charges related to the rocket launcher or writings were filed.

And then the lawyers arrived, and the rationalizing away of blame began:

“Other people could have had access to the apartment, so maybe if a rocket launcher was located there, as is stated in the offense report, maybe it belonged to somebody else,” attorney Garl Polland said.

Prosecutors said there are no state charges for having the unarmed launcher or possessing Jihadist writings, unless they contain some type of threat.

The former director of Houston’s FBI office said rocket launchers can be dangerous if they’re in the wrong hands.

“I don’t know any other use for those weapons except in combat,” Don Clark said. “I’ve had them in combat, used them in combat. That’s what they are used for.”

Houston police said they did a thorough investigation and did not find any ties to terrorists or a terrorist network.

Terrorism, perhaps? Anybody think of terrorism? And rocket launchers are highly controlled items; double locked up in weapons bunkers under armed guard.  Anyone want to look into how one of those went missing?

Hat Tip: Bluegrass Pundit here.

And this morning Fox News is reporting on-air (no sign on the website yet) that New York Police detained several men with backpacks attempting to enter Times Square last night during New Year’s celebrations.

Now, besides the fact that backpacks are prohibited items in the area of Times Square during new Year’s celebrations; it appears the men were all euphemistically termed “foreign passport holders.”

Kind of like the London bombings a couple of years ago — just with more people.

Yeah Janet, you’re doing a Hell of a Job there:

Some Democrats have joined in calling for Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to step down following the attempted bombing of a Northwest Airlines flight a week ago.  Not only does her department oversee the Transportation Security Administration, but her initial claim Sunday that “the system worked” was widely ridiculed and interpreted by critics as a sign that she’s in over her head.

Some Republicans, who’ve taken issue with her in the past for calling terrorist acts “man-caused disasters” and other remarks, started calling for her ouster in the spring.

Now Democrats have joined the chorus.

New Jersey State Senate President Richard Codey, a Democrat, wrote a letter to Napolitano this week calling on her to step down. He said Napolitano, an attorney and former Arizona governor, does not have the experience for the post she is in.

Democratic strategist Dan Gerstein also said Napolitano’s response to the incident should be the last straw.

Republican Rep. Dan Burton, R-Ind., said Napolitano does not have the experience for the job, and her remarks only prove that she doesn’t take the terrorist threat as seriously as she should.

Former New York Republican Sen. Alfonse D’Amato also said Napolitano should resign.

Would it matter if I added my voice to the chorus? Maybe only to myself, but I will.

Resign, Janet, before somebody gets killed.

From Rasmussen Reports today:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 25% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-six percent (46%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -21 That’s the lowest Approval Index rating yet recorded for this President (see trends).

Seventy-four percent (74%) of Republicans Strongly Disapprove as do 52% of unaffiliated voters. Forty-seven percent (47%) of Democrats Strongly Approve.

For the second straight day, the update shows the highest level of Strong Disapproval yet recorded for this President. That negative rating had never topped 42% before yesterday. However, it has risen dramatically since the Senate found 60 votes to move forward with the proposed health care reform legislation. Most voters (55%) oppose the health care legislation and senior citizens are even more likely than younger voters to dislike the plan.

One bright spot in the numbers for the President is that 51% of voters still say former President George W. Bush is more to blame for the nation’s economic woes. Just 41% point the finger of blame at the current President.

Did you catch the note about Healthcare being linked with the new record Disapproval Ratings? Notice also how that red line takes a sudden spike starting last Saturday?

Honestly – this Narcissist President is too dumb to see the damned signs. Really!

Joe Conason has an article that’s excerpted at Rasmussen Reports today.

Name not familiar? Here’s some excerpts from his Wikipedia article:

So, just to establish his bona-fides, he’s not only a rabid liberal, he’s also the smear merchant who started the meme about the first President Bush having extramarital affairs.

Oh yeah — really well-sourced “journalist” here. Yeah.  Riiiiiight.

Anyway, here’s the article:

By bowing to Sen. Joseph Lieberman and his obstructive pals in both parties on health care reform, President Obama has confirmed what Republicans always say about Democrats: They simply aren’t strong enough to govern.

Their moment of truth came when Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of staff and self-styled tough guy from Chicago, urged the Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, to strip out the most progressive aspects of the proposed health care reform bill in order to appease Lieberman. Unless the Connecticut senator got his way, he threatened to join a Republican filibuster — conniving with a political minority to kill reforms that a majority of Americans has wanted and needed for decades.

Neither Emanuel nor his boss possesses the courage to call the bluff of the reform opponents and urge a victory for that majority through the legislative process known as “reconciliation,” which allows the Senate leadership to stuff a sock in the mouth of the filibuster.

Not surprisingly, this spectacle of capitulation evokes disgust among many Democrats, surpassed only by the revulsion they feel as they gaze upon Lieberman’s self-satisfied grin.

By now we know that he doesn’t really care what the Democratic Party is all about — especially when the issue is achieving reforms of health care that have been a central objective of Democrats throughout his lifetime. He is said to care much more about avenging his defeat by Democratic voters in the primary three years ago.

But there is no need to speculate on his lowdown motives. Everyone knows he is a servant of the insurance and pharmaceutical industries that have always paid his campaign bills and sometimes maintained his spouse, Hadassah, on their payrolls, either directly or indirectly.

While observing the worst expressions of Lieberman’s character, the public has learned about the president’s defects, as well. Three years ago, Obama supported the Connecticut senator when few liberals would and then defended his senatorial privileges this year, even after he had endorsed and campaigned for John McCain and Sarah Palin in 2008. Now Lieberman has repaid those favors with spite –and that smart, tenacious, cool leader in the White House did nothing but flinch.

Really, it does this conservative Democrat’s heart good to watch the bullies of the Democrap Party begin to turn on each other. Really; I’m just grinning like a madman as I type this. Breeding and culture will tell; and when your bred from hooligans and your culture is corruption and death, it all comes out in the end.  The attack on Lieberman’s wife was a particularly low and obnoxious touch, too.

And just in case you haven’t heard, Mister Conason — Nobody messes with Joe (Lieberman).

In a surge from far, far behind incumbent governor Charlie Crist, Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio has now tied Crist in polling for the 2010 Senate race:

Governor Charlie Crist and former state House Speaker Marco Rubio are now tied in the 2010 race for the Republican Senate nomination in Florida.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely GOP Primary voters finds Crist and Rubio each with 43% of the vote. Five percent (5%) prefer another candidate, and nine percent (9%) are undecided.

Crist’s support has fallen from 53% in August to 49% in October. Rasmussen Reports noted at the time, “The fact that Crist has fallen below 50% in a primary against a lesser known opponent suggests potential vulnerability.”

Rubio’s name recognition has grown in recent months and he is now viewed Very Favorably by 34% of Likely Primary Voters. That’s up from 18% in August. As his name recognition increased, Rubio’s support in the polls has jumped from 31% in August to 43% today.

While ot mentioned directly, President Screw-Up seems to be somewhat directly responsible for Charlie Crist’s woes in the polls:

Crist, well known throughout the state, has seen his ratings go in the opposite direction. Just 19% now have a Very Favorable opinion of him, a figure that represents a double digit decline since August. Crist angered many conservatives in the state when he embraced President Obama’s $787-billion economic stimulus plan. While the Republican establishment has endorsed Crist, many prominent GOP conservatives including Mike Huckabee, South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint and former Bush adviser Karl Rove are backing Rubio.

An interesting note to all the Tea Partiers at the end of the article:

However, if a Tea Party candidate is in the race, the picture changes dramatically. A separate, three-way Generic Ballot test finds that Democrats attract 36% of the vote, while the Tea Party candidate picks up 23% and Republicans finish third at 18%.

This suggests — strongly suggests — that Rubio has massive Tea Party support; and given Crist’s strong RINO inclinations, the Cubano-Americano Rubio looks better and better to real Conservatives.

Watch for Crist to get ugly after the first of the year.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Obamacare is hopelessly foundering in the Senate, and former DNC Chair and Presidential aspirant Howard Dean is giving up hope:

“The Senate version is not worth passing,” former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean told POLITICO, referring to plans to strip the latest compromise from the bill, a Medicare buy-in. “I think in this particular iteration, this is the end of the road for reform.”

Dean said there are some good elements in the bill, but lawmakers should pull the plug and revisit the issue in Obama’s second term, unless Democrats are willing to shortcut a GOP filibuster. “No one will think this is health care reform. This is not even insurance reform,” he said.

And the Democraps are not going softly into that good night:

Congressional Democrats are starting to voice their anger at President Obama over the way health care legislation has been compromised, blaming him for not fighting harder.

“The president keeps listening to Rahm Emanuel,” said Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.). “No public option, no extending Medicare to 55, no nothing, an excise tax, God!” he exclaimed about the Senate health care bill to Roll Call. “The insurance lobby is taking over.”  Rep. Dave Obey (D-Wis.), told Politico of Senate delays, “It’s ridiculous, and the Obama administration is sitting on the sidelines. That’s nonsense.”*

While many House Democrats have expressed anger with the Senate for the watered-down bill, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) argued that it was really Obama who let centrists take control. “Snowe? Stupak? Lieberman? Who left these people in charge?” he said. “It’s time for the president to get his hands dirty. Some of us have compromised our compromised compromise. We need the president to stand up for the values our party shares. We must stop letting the tail wag the dog of this debate.”

Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wisc.) similarly suggested that blaming Lieberman was ignoring the real culprit – Obama.

“This bill appears to be legislation that the president wanted in the first place, so I don’t think focusing it on Lieberman really hits the truth.”

Suckers. Welcome to my world; the world of Presidential Buyer’s Remorse.

And between the arm twisting of the Democrap Leadership and the rumblings of discontent from the Tea Parties back home, some Dems are seriously thinking of getting out while the getting’s good:

Several Democratic members of the House are scrambling for the exits on what is starting to look like a sinking ship.

Dennis Moore (Kansas 3), John Tanner (Tennessee 8), Brian Baird (Washington 3) and Bart Gordon (Tennessee 6) are competent House members who among them have won election to Congress 36 times. Gordon is chairman of the House Science Committee; Tanner was offered an appointment to succeed Al Gore in the Senate in 1992; Baird was lead sponsor of measures to ensure the continuity of Congress in time of national disaster. All have claims to significant legislative accomplishments.

The question now is whether more Democrats of this ilk will choose to retire – something House Democratic leaders have been working to prevent. They’re very much aware that Republicans in 1994 won some 21 open seats in which Democratic incumbents did not seek re-election, nearly half the 52 seats the Republicans gained when they won control of the House that year.

The odds are still against Republicans picking up the 41 seats they need for a House majority. But it’s interesting that when Massachusetts Democrat Michael Capuano, fresh from a second-place finish in the primary for Edward Kennedy’s Senate seat, was asked to tell the Democratic caucus what he had learned on the campaign trail, he replied in two words: “You’re screwed.”

Een the Blue Dog Democraps are refusing to return calls from Barack Obama:

You get the picture.

Celebration begins in 11 months and counting. Don’t forget to register to vote; in Texas you have to be regisered by January 4th.

As the Leftists push harder and harder to get the Socialish Nightmare of Government Healthcare rammed down our backsides by Christmas, the fragile Leftist coalition of fragile extremists and one-note Johnny’s becomes more and more unhinged at the prospects of having to sacrifice some of their goals to the overall acheivement of Healthcare fo all.

Or just some.

Heck, not that many, really.

Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman, once the object of scorn in the Democratic Party, is now sitting in the catbird seat in his opposition to Healthcare:

The White House is encouraging Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to cut a deal with Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), which would mean eliminating the proposed Medicare expansion in the health reform bill, according to an official close to the negotiations.

“There is a weariness and a lot of frustration that one person is holding up the will of 59 others,” the official said. “There is still too much anger and confusion at one particular senator’s reversal.”

Hey, Harry? Nobody screws with Joe. Get used to it. It’s the price you pay for endorsing his opponent two years ago, jerk.

And what’s really panicking Harry Reid is that it’ more and more likely that this will be the last chance they get to pass a Healthcare bill:

Cook report: Number of “likely” Democratic House seats down to … 218. A bare majority. Actually, there are only 39 seats listed in the “lean Democratic” and “Democratic toss-up” columns, but as Taegan Goddard points out, if you toss in Bart Gordon’s retirement today in a very winnable GOP district you’re down to the magic number. But never mind that. Follow the first link to Cook and skim the column of “likely Democratic” seats, which are considered safe-ish, to see how many come from districts with a Republican-leaning PVI. If you see multiple retirements in that column — and the NRCC thinks you very well might then suddenly a bunch of seats are in play on top of the 40 that are already shaky.

And then throw in a wild card — say, noted liberal loudmouth Al Franken, who doesn’t care who he offends — and suddenly Democrat camaraderie goes out the window entirely:

Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) and Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) sparred sharply on the Senate floor Monday evening, a departure from the usually dormant speeches in the august chamber.

Franken said he was struck by a speech in which he said Thune had refused to highlight when benefits to the health care bill would kick in and instead emphasized the negative parts of the bill.

Thune, No. 4 in GOP leadership, asked the freshman Democrat to yield for a question, and asked: “Did the senator from Minnesota, when I was pointing out the chart, understand the point I was making – that the tax increases start 18 days from now, and that the benefits, the spending benefits under the bill which are the premium tax credits and the exchanges that are designed to provide the benefit that’s delivered under this bill don’t start until 2014?”

Franken responded sharply: “Does the senator understand that spending benefits start right away?”

To which, Thune said tersely: “If the senator missed the point, I can get the chart out again.”

Franken said: “I asked a question, senator. I yield to you for a question. I’m asking a question.”

Oh yeah, Al – you’re sure making friends and influencing people up there on Capitol HillTHAT’s for sure.

Meanshile, one of the most respected Dems on the hill — seeing his seat in jeapardy at him in very red Indiana – is getting cold feet over the whole “spend until we’re out of money” idea:

Sen. Evan Bayh (D-Ind.) called on President Barack Obama Monday to veto the $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill that just passed through Congress.

Bayh was one of three Democrats who joined most Senate Republicans in voting against the bill, which combines six of the 12 annual appropriations bills for 2010. He echoed GOP criticism that the bill led to unsustainable spending levels.

“I would hope the president would veto this bill,” Bayh said. “It’s bad for our country’s finances. It’s bad for our children because we are going deeper into debt to China. It sets a terrible example by showing that politicians are totally out of touch with the sacrifices middle class Americans are making.”

The bill passed Sunday by a 57-35 vote.

Starting to ger REeeeeally interesting out there.

Oh, this is truly funny. As President Obama continues his historic slide in the polls, guess who’s gaining ground?

Perhaps the greatest measure of Obama’s declining support is that just 50% of voters now say they prefer having him as President to George W. Bush, with 44% saying they’d rather have his predecessor. Given the horrendous approval ratings Bush showed during his final term that’s somewhat of a surprise and an indication that voters are increasingly placing the blame on Obama for the country’s difficulties instead of giving him space because of the tough situation he inherited. The closeness in the Obama/Bush numbers also has implications for the 2010 elections. Using the Bush card may not be particularly effective for Democrats anymore, which is good news generally for Republicans and especially ones like Rob Portman who are running for office and have close ties to the former President.

As the Rasmussen Reports Polls showed during President Bush’s last week in office,

In the final full month of his Presidency, just 13% of American adults said they Strongly Approved of the way that George W. Bush performed his job as president. Forty-three percent (43%) Strongly Disapproved. Overall, 35% say that they at least somewhat approve of way the President has handled his job. That’s unchanged from November and among the lowest monthly ratings ever earned by the President.

So President Bush has gone from a 35% approval to a 44% approval, while Obam has gone from a 78% approval to a 47% approal in the same period.

Should the same trends continue, former President Bush’s popularity should surpass Obama’s decline sometime in the January-February timeframe.

More good news! The readers of the Daily Kos, one of the most activist and leftist online sites, are heartily discouraged with th state of the party, and aren’t planning to vote in 2010:

Kos percentagesAs we head into the 2010 election cycle, take another look at the the massive enthusiasm gap between Democrats and Republicans revealed in our weekly tracking poll:

As Steve wrote in a detailed look at the poll’s demographic breakdowns, if these numbers don’t change, we’re going to be on the unpleasant end of an electoral disaster in November 2010.

They GOP may be as nuts as it has ever been, but unless we get our electoral act together and change these numbers, we’re going to get our clocks cleaned and those crazy Republicans are going to get elected.

An what the writer refuses to acknowledge is the fact that the titular head of the Party, President Narcissist, has completely and almost totaly de-energized and de-motivated one of the most energized bases in the history of American Politics. How in the world Kos expects to undo THAT screw-up is beyond me.

President Narcissist, the Do-Nothing President of the 21st Century, will give a speech that’s a week late about a subject everyone already knows about to promise an inadequate amount of troops for a mission he doesn’t actually understand and doesn’t fully support. He will give this speech while standing in front of thousands of West point Cadets in hopes that we’ll forget Obama has never served his country in the military and also in hopes that we won’t think he’s the wimp of the new millenium.

And to give this speech he’s going to bump one of the best-loved Christmas specials of the last 50 years for his amazing neo-marxist sleight of hand:

A Charlie Brown Christmas.

If that’s not a cogent metaphor for the entire Obama Presidency to date I don’t know what is.

President Barack Obama …

… is slated to deliver a prime-time address on Tuesday night in which he’ll lay out his plans for the American war in Afghanistan.The address before the United States Military Academy at West Point on Tuesday night will not only be used to announce the immediate order to deploy roughly 30,000 more troops, but the administration will also use the occasion to convey how it intends to turn the fight over to the Kabul government, the New York Times reported.

But the administration may also face an unforeseen enemy as it lays out its long-awaited plans. And they are loud and they are legion: We’re talking about preschoolers and their parents.

That’s because ABC-TV was scheduled to present its annual screening of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” at 8 p.m. tomorrow night. And we don’t know about you, but that show is pretty sacrosanct around our house and not to be trifled with lightly.

Honestly, this may be the signal greatest mistake of the Obama Presidency. People will be talking about how “Obama Bumped “A Charlie Brown Christmas for years and tens of years.

I certainly will. Heartless Bastard.

I want you to think about this.  Th Narcissist President is going to bump the last regularly scheduled network television program that not only openly discusses religion, but quotes the Bible in it’s program.

The Book of Luke, specifically.

The Left can argue George W. Bush may have been stupid, but even Bush wasn’t THIS stupid and blithely contemptuous of tradition.

Part of the problem with holding together a fragile coalition is that — well, it’s fragile. Breaks easily. Cracks appear at the least signs of stress.

And as Brian Malonnee points out at the Radio Equalizer, there’s a whole lot of stressin’ goin’ on over Unemployment:

Occasionally, lefty pundits make unusually candid admissions during liberal talk radio interviews that would never occur elsewhere.

The latest example comes from MSNBC’s David Shuster, a committed Obamist, but in this case sounding the alarm over what he sees as Barack’s odd indifference to rising unemployment. Could it become “Obama’s Katrina“?

SHUSTER (32:47): The longer the health care drags on there’s this perception that jobs is not a main priority for the Obama Administration and I do think I mean I think you’re right. At a certain point somebody described it as a tsunami that is building.

One of the columns this morning (The column Shuster cited was written by Arianna Huffington in the Huffington Post) saying this is like another Katrina that building off our coast and the perception of the Obama Administration is either been asleep at the switch, or hasn’t done enough or hasn’t recognized the gravity of the problem. I think it gonna be a huge problem in 2010.

It’s the Economy, Stupid (to paraphrase Bill Clinton and James Carville.)

Meanwhile, former DNC Chairman and Presidential candidate Howard Dean (who is also a medical doctor, to boot) has come out strongly AGAINST Obamacare — yes, you read that right:

The former presidential candidate and governor of Vermont appeared on Air America’s Bill Press radio show and blasted the ObamaCare bill — in both its House and Senate forms. During the interview, Dean insisted that the current efforts did nothing to control costs, and amounted to nothing more than a bailout for the insurance companies. He urged progressives in Congress to oppose the bill, especially if the public option gets stripped out. And he said, “Republicans are right about the rhetoric of this bill” (via Instapundit):

The cracks have begun to appear. Standing by for party cannibalism in three, two, one . . .

And you know, that’s NOTHING like good news to be compaed to the most incompetent, bumbling, bungling, naive President in history.

And we’re not talking bomb-throwing right-wing radicals here! No, no, no — it’s Mister Chris “Leg-tingle” Matthews talking here:

In the Carter presidency, the optics were not exactly robust, and Ronald Reagan rode that to a big victory in 1980. Is the Obama White House sending some Carteresque signals these days?

Eeeewww — I feel so dirty quoting Chris Matthews for anything.

And when Chris Matthews agrees with Newt Gingrich, that’s GOTTA be some kind of trouble:

There are many indications that the man in charge at the White House will take a tougher stance in the future. Obama’s advisors fear a comparison with former Democratic President Jimmy Carter, even more than with Bush.  “Carter tried weakness and the world got tougher and tougher because the predators, the aggressors, the anti-Americans, the dictators, when they sense weakness, they all start pushing ahead,” Newt Gingrich, the former Republican speaker in the House of Representatives, recently said. And then he added: “This does look a lot like Jimmy Carter.”

Emphasis on “One-Term.”

Usually I like to try to balance the Good news With the Bad News; but for the Democraps it’s just Bad News with Worse News. The Bad news is that public support for the Healthcare Bill has plummetted from 47% to 38% over the weekend:

Just 38% of voters now favor the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s the lowest level of support measured for the plan in nearly two dozen tracking polls conducted since June.

Laurel & Hardy

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% now oppose the plan.

Prior to this, support for the plan had never fallen below 41%. Last week, support for the plan was at 47%.

Half the survey was conducted before the Senate voted late Saturday to begin debate on its version of the legislation. Support for the plan was slightly lower in the half of the survey conducted after the Senate vote.

And that’s the kicker — that last sentence there. Very likely had the survey been conducted completely after the Senate vote the results would have been significantly lower than they were. So when i say that roughly 2 out of every 3 Americans now oppose the current Obamacare bill, I have no problems in believing that’s correct — if not an understatement.

Now the worse news — guess whose doorstep the public is laying this foundling on?

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that only 28% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -13 (see trends).

For the first time in the Obama Administration, the Approval Index has been in negative double digits for nine straight days. Among men, the President’s Approval Index rating is -20. Among women, it is -7 (see other recent demographic highlights from the tracking poll).

Among men Obama’s rating is -20 — That’s MINUS TWENTY. That has to be something of a record.

Preparing for Implosion in 2010 and 2012 in three, two, one . . .

Well, I suppose it had to happen . . . and actually, I’m glad Conservative American blog is doing it; keeping track of all the Obama Administation Scandals.

As of this writing, they’re up to 813 Scandals.

I’m fairly certain that beats even the Harding Administration, and most assuredly the Clinton Administration, too.

Well, that’s what happens when you elect inexperienced amateurs and thugs.

And understandably, the Swedish are highly peed off at the U.S. right now.

What was all that campaign rhetoric about ‘building new international coalitions based on trust and respect” again?

The Swedish government said on Wednesday it would not intervene to take over Saab. Enterprise Minister Maud Olofsson slammed Saab’s US owner General Motors for “abandoning” the struggling Swedish car maker.


General Motors has warned that the unit would go under without official help.

Her comment came after GM late Tuesday presented a massive restructuring plan to the US Treasury and said its troubled Saab unit could file for bankruptcy protection “as early as this month” without support from the Swedish government.

The company said last year it planned to try to find a buyer for the brand.

So, they lied about that; alternately, they were too incompetent to find such a buyer. Take your pick.

SwedishChefSmall“They’re basically saying they think the Swedish government should take over Saab, but if we do that we’re talking about an incredible amount of money,” Olofsson said

The hilarious part of this is that Sweden already has Nationalized Health Care; and THEY think it’s “too much money” ??? Heh.

“I’m disappointed in General Motors, because they’re abandoning Saab and are pushing the responsibility over to Swedish tax payers, and I think that is irresponsible,” she said.

While Sweden’s centre-right government has refused to take over Saab it has nonetheless said it will act as a guarantor for a European Investment Bank (EIB) loan of five billion kronor (450 million euros, 566 million dollars) to help keep car maker afloat.

According to the unions, some 15,000 jobs in Sweden would be at risk if the unit were to disappear, since its suppliers would also be hard-hit.

And that last line is misleading. I’s not that 15,000 jobs in Sweden would be at risk; It’s that 15,000 jobs in Sweden ARE at risk, and will probably soon disappear. For Sweden’s economy that would be catastrophic.

And what do you think the EU will do if one of their economic partner’s economies is hit hard by Saab’s collapse?

Watching closely.

Obama looks back over shoulderThe Gallup Organization finally wakes up and notices the obvious: President Narcissist’s Poll Drops since inauguration are the steepest for any President in recorded history.

The decline in Barack Obama’s popularity since July has been the steepest of any president at the same stage of his first term for more than 50 years.

Gallup recorded an average daily approval rating of 53 per cent for Mr Obama for the third quarter of the year, a sharp drop from the 62 per cent he recorded from April.

His current approval rating – hovering just above the level that would make re-election an uphill struggle – is close to the bottom for newly-elected president. Mr Obama entered the White House with a soaring 78 per cent approval rating.

Never before has any One President struggled so long for so little to have such a public relations disaster, for such a reviled public works program.  Bravo, Barry, Bravo.

whiny obama big eyesFollowers of The #TCOT Report will know that we’ve been highlighting the NY-23 race, where RINO Dede Scozzafava is getting the daylights trounced out of her by actual Conservative Doug Hoffman. Scozzafava has lost at least 7 points to her Conservative rival, and

Redstate reports today her campaign is completely imploding even as we speak.

Why? In no small part due to the reporting of Robert Stacy McCain HERE.

McCain’s recent posts, funded in no small part by you the readers, are destroying Scozzafava’s dreams of being the next RINO Representative from New York.  This is is important, of course, in no small part because it’s  a direct referendum on President Narcissist’s policies during his first year.

And he’s relying on us to fund his investigations.  As McCain says, “Grassroots: Stop Asking What You Can Do and Start Doing What You Can.”

You really should be rading his blog. ACORN vote fraud; Cops called on reporters; prominent Republicans making asses of themselves; and more grassroots action than you can shake a stick at.

Get a move on.

Patrick Courrielche at Breibart’s Big Hollywood has a very, very disturbing account of a conference call designed to marshal the Artsy-Fartsy crowd into supporting the President through propaganda:

Another conference call has materialized, revealing a concerted effort by government to use the arts to address political issues.

obama-superman-rossLee Rosenbaum, a blogger for Artsjournal.com, posted her experience with a meeting that occurred on August 27th and confessed that she also felt “uneasy” about the government’s arts effort. The meeting invitation went out to all “member local, state, and regional arts agencies, community-based arts organizations, and national partners of Americans for Arts.” Americans for Arts is a non-profit arts organization that has received substantial grants from the National Endowment for the Arts.


As with my conference call, the art group was invited to the meeting to work together to “tackle some of the nation’s toughest issues: education; health; energy and the environment; community renewal; and safety and security.” Also like my call, it included a private citizen moderating the phone call with key White House representatives participating. Rosenbaum mentions that there was much talk of “leveraging federal dollars” to get artists and cultural organizations involved in social-service projects.

obama-the-light-workerLeveraging federal dollars? This is the problem with marrying issue specific topics, like health care and energy, with a group that is funded by tax dollars; it increases the potential of taxpayer-funded propaganda.

obama_victory_unicornWhat appears to be emerging is a concerted and deliberate effort by the White House and the NEA to encourage the art community to create issue specific art. With the building evidence of bad behavior by the NEA, you’d think this federal agency would have issued a statement explaining their position on this “brand new” direction for the arts. But as the cliché goes, the silence has been deafening. This taxpayer funded agency and their civil servants haven’t even returned phone calls from legitimate press outlets.

Even more deafening is the silence on the part of the mainstream media. Documented dishonesty by White House appointed officials should easily draw the ire of our media watchdogs. But the liberal media, historically a protector of the arts, has turned its back on the community of which it adores

The NEA needs to address this issue.

And I would add — right - effing -NOW. Seems we’ve already had enough propaganda artwork on the President’s behalf; funding it with Tax dollars is a whole ‘nuther thing.

You may remember my previous post where i told you how Rep. Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX-11) Was Hiding From the Tea Parties? Well, here’s the video of his opponent, Canyon Clowdus, addressing the assembled:

This one is my favorite. The speaker, Elena Chitta, was born in Poland in 1939 at the beginning of WWII. She later survived 30 years in Communist Romania under the dictator Nicolae Ceauşescu.

“I know a communist when I see him.”

Seen around San Antonio this week, Example One:


These T-shirts were being worn by everyone, and I do mean EVERYONE in my local Wells-Fargo branch Friday.  (Wells-Fargo is one of the few major banks to not accept TARP funds.  Even thoug the Feds granted a few billion to Wells-Fargo, the funds were not requested, not used, and returned promptly. despite the Feds insistence that Wlls had to keep the TARP funds anyway.)

The unspoken tag line would be, “Not for the Federal Government!”

Example Two:


Ford Motor Company is the only major American carmaker to not accept bailout money.   This sign has been up almost a month now.

And I’m seeing more and more of these on the road lately:


The backlash against Obama is coming.  It will be truly awesome to behold when the wave breaks in a few months, or even weeks.
