Help Hillary Help. You were right! Obama’s not ready on Day 1. Obama’s not ready on Day 2. He’s not ready on Day 3. Day 4, Day 5, Day 6, Day 7….
It’s already February and Obama is not ready on month 2.
Save Us, Hillary. Save Us.

We’re doing our best girlfriend. Big Pink is on the job. We’re keeping up the fight, but it’s getting scare-rey! out there. You’ve been busy getting actual work done to Save The World Hillary so maybe you haven’t seen – or averted your eyes, laughing or crying, from the boobery of the BOob. Here’s what’s been happening, here’s our latest report:
Those that backstabbed you in the primaries, those that cooperated with Ted Kennedy and Big Media to put this dupe/boob in the White House are now exposed as hypocrites. In many instances the backstabbers have lost jobs. Those that keep the jobs expose the corruption at the heart of the Chicago B.O. administration.
The latest job mess in the Toilet Bowl is major backstabber Tom Daschle. Remember when Joe Biden said payment of higher taxes is patriotic? Remember the old Republican attack line against Democrats – Limousine Liberals? With real Democrats that tag does not apply. But Tom Daschle and the Obama Dimocrats are Limousine Liberals:
President Obama’s choice for health secretary, Tom Daschle, was aware as early as last June that he might have to pay back taxes for the use of a car and driver provided by a private equity firm, but did not inform the Obama transition team until weeks after Mr. Obama named him to the health secretary’s post, senior administration officials said Saturday.
As Senate Democrats rushed to save the nomination of Mr. Daschle, their former leader, the White House spent the day trying to explain how he survived its vetting process despite his failure to pay $128,000 in taxes. [snip]
“The president believes that nobody is perfect, but that nobody is trying to hide anything,” Robert Gibbs, the president’s press secretary, said in an interview, adding, “I think Senator Daschle rightly is going to have to answer questions, but I think members will be satisfied with the answers that he gives and will understand that he’s the right man for the job.” [snip]
“It’s totally shocking,” an aide to a Democratic senator said Saturday. “Why do we have to continue to have the same story over and over again with these nominees?”
Mr. Daschle, who has paid the back taxes with interest, is the latest of Mr. Obama’s cabinet choices who have run into trouble, and the revelations about his finances — which include more than $300,000 in income from health-related companies that he might regulate as secretary — raise questions about the presidential vetting process, as well as Mr. Obama’s ability to keep his pledge to run an administration free of outside influence.
“One of the problems here is what they set up as expectations,” said Martha Joynt Kumar, an expert in presidential transitions at Towson University. “If you have talked about the importance of ethics and set up the kind of rules they did on lobbying, then I think it sets expectations that yours is going to be an administration that is not going to have problems that others might have had.” [snip]
A spokeswoman for Mr. Daschle, Jenny Backus, said Mr. Daschle became concerned last June that he might owe taxes on the car and driver, and instructed his accountant to investigate. Mr. Obama named Mr. Daschle to the health secretary’s post on Dec. 11. But it was not until late December or early January, after the accountant came back to Mr. Daschle with a report on the back taxes owed, that the former senator informed the White House transition team. Ms. Backus said Mr. Daschle did not think to mention it earlier, in part because “he thought his accountant was taking care of it,” and in part because he had no idea the amount owed would be so high.
It appears that with the Obama vetting process corruption is rewarded. The article above quoted the latest joke by Republicans – “It is easy for the other side to advocate for higher taxes because — you know what? — they don’t pay them.”
Can you imagine the scandal that would erupt if you Hillary, or Bill, were caught taking so much money from an industry you were going to regulate and then did not even pay taxes? Limousine Liberal is a label that Daschle deserves:
As a politician, Mr. Daschle often struck a populist note, but his financial disclosure report shows that in the last two years, he received $2.1 million from a law firm, Alston & Bird; $2 million in consulting fees from a private equity firm run by a major Democratic fundraiser, Leo Hindery Jr. (which provided him with the car and driver); and at least $220,000 for speeches to health care, pharmaceutical and insurance companies. He also received nearly $100,000 from health-related companies affected by federal regulation.
Limousine Liberal Tom Daschle has a lot of problems with American tax payers but apparently none with the Toilet Bowl in Washington:
Tom Daschle, tapped to be President Obama’s health czar, was paid more than $200,000 by the health-care industry in the past two years, according to documents obtained by Politico.[snip]
Daschle made nearly $5.3 million in the last two years, records released Friday show, including $220,000 he received for giving speeches, many of them to outfits that stand to gain or lose millions of dollars from the work he would do once confirmed as secretary of Health and Human Services.
For instance, the Health Industry Distributors Association plunked down $14,000 to land the former Senate Democratic leader in March 2008. The association, which represents medical products distributors, boasts on its website that Daschle met with it after he was nominated to discuss “the impact an Obama administration will have on the industry.”
This week, the group began openly lobbying him, sending him a letter urging him to rescind a rule requiring competitive bidding of Medicare contracts.
Another organization, America’s Health Insurance Plans, paid $20,000 for a Daschle speaking appearance in February 2007. It represents health insurance companies, which under Obama’s plan would be barred from denying coverage on the basis of health or age.
There was a $12,000 talk to GE Healthcare in August, a $20,000 lecture in January to Premier, Inc., a health care consulting firm, and a pair of $18,000 speeches this year to different hospital systems, among other paid appearances before health care groups.
Limousine Liberal Tom Daschle fits right in with the Obama Chicago crime lords. Limousine Liberal Tom Daschle is protected by Obama because Obama understands when Rezko type friends get you houses and money. Obama and Daschle are two peas in a pod, two pigs in a trough.
If Republicans take up the cudgel, Obama, who’s spent much of the week railing at Wall Street greed, would have to explain why he’s backing a rich political insider who didn’t pay taxes on his limousine.
Daschle’s tax troubles came to light on Friday, closely on the heels of the nomination fight over Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, who failed to pay $34,000 in taxes while working for the International Monetary Fund in the early 2000s. President Obama and Democratic leaders leaned heavily on senators to back the nomination, and he was approved by a 60-34 margin.
Other Democats have also had high profile problems of late that play into this line of attack. New York Rep. Charlie Rangel is under investigation for failing to report rental income on a villa in the Dominican Republic. New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardon withdrew his bid for commerce secretary amidst a federal investigation into how political donors landed a lucrative contract.
“If a Bush appointee got rich off of Wall Street in this climate, had a chauffeur from one of his fat cat cronies, had unpaid taxes that amounted to more than what most people make in a year, and then the administration tried to fix it behind closed doors. Democrats would call for his head and would demand ‘accountability,’” said a top Senate GOP aide.
It would be much worse if the problems were in any way Clinton related and hypocrite Republicans would join in. Limousine Liberal Tom Daschle is a made member of the Obama Chicago crime lords:
The ties between Obama and Daschle run deep. The former senator is not just another pol in line for an administration post.
Daschle was an early and ardent support of Obama. Daschle’s former chief of staff Pete Rouse later went to work as Obama’s chief of staff in the Senate—and now works as deputy chief of staff in the White House.
In addition, the Democratic fundraiser who provided the free car and driver to Daschle is Leo Hindery, who founded InterMedia Advisors, where he paid Daschle at a rate of $1 million a year to be an consultant. Hindery was an economic consultant to Obama during the campaign and was believed at one point to have been under consideration for the Commerce secretary post. [snip]
This source added that “It wasn’t like Daschle was taking bags of money or doing anything bad,” noting that for Daschle and his wife, Linda, a top Democratic lobbyist, “another $100,000 in taxes in not a serious problem.”
One hundred thousand dollars in taxes from hundreds of thousands of dollars income might not be a problem in the Toilet Bowl, but in real America people are hurting.
Not a Limousine Liberal Marcy Kaptur has some understanding of the problems real Americans. Americans without an Antoin “Tony” Rezko, have problems.

Hillary, we know that your hubby, President Bill Clinton, is the only President beginning with Truman until now who left office with a higher favorability rating than when he went in.” We know It’s not where you start it’s where you wind up.
The Hopium addled addicts and Big Media (same thing) chortle at Obama’s high beginning poll numbers – just like Jimmy Carter. Remember what happened to the country and to one term Jimmy?
The Gallup Poll on Saturday released the first job-approval rating for President Obama, based on interviews during his first three full days in office: 68 percent.
Now that he’s in office, Obama’s approval ratings are starting to normalize, as partisan back-and-forth picks up. Just a week ago, Gallup found an astonishing 83 percent approval of how he has handled his transition, showing he had even won over most Republicans.
The new job-approval figure puts him at the upper end of opening poll numbers for presidents, but doesn’t set a record.
Gallup’s initial job approval ratings were President John F. Kennedy, 72 percent; Dwight Eisenhower, 68 percent; Jimmy Carter, 66 percent; Richard Nixon, 59 percent; George W. Bush, 57 percent; and Ronald Regan and George H.W. Bush, 51 percent.
Big Media will continue to prop up their tool, but reality has a way of intruding. Americans will listen to Big Media but at some point they look around and they notice the reality of their lives does not match the Big Media Obama protection racket.
LESS than two weeks into his administration, President Barack Obama is being portrayed by opponents as a new Jimmy Carter – weak at home and naive abroad – in an attempt to dim his post-election glow and ensure that he serves only one term.
The charge has stung because it was made privately by Hillary Clinton supporters during a hard-fought primary campaign and plays to fears about Obama’s inexperience.
He is engaged in early trials of strength with Republicans in Washington and critics of the United States around the world – not least Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian president. Obama faces battles to talk Wall Street into giving up its addiction to large bonuses and US banks to start lending again.
“Barack Obama thinks he can charm his adversaries into changing their ways but his personality can’t change the dynamics,” said Tom Edmonds, a Republican consultant.
“Carter [president from 1977 to 1981] had the same belief in naive symbolism. Their styles are very different but the political similarities are there.”
The Republicans are in fighting mood after Obama failed to secure a single vote on their side for his $819 billion financial stimulus package in the House of Representatives, despite intensive wooing.
The bill came laden with spending on Democratic pet projects, including $50m for the arts and $400m for global warming research that critics said had little to do with boosting the economy. It also contains “buy American” protectionist provisions that have alarmed trading partners, including Britain. [snip]
“This is the Republicans’ way back. They have to return to their core values of cutting spending and taxes,” said Edmonds. “If the stimulus package doesn’t work, it is Obama’s failure. It’s got his name on it.”
The Sarah Baxter article also discusses the opportunity for Iranian leaders to grandstand because of Obama’s hopey-dopey. Iran President Ahmadinejad is taking the opportunity to grandstand and wants an apology from the United States. Hopefully,
Jimmy Carter Barack Obama will not humiliate the United States and apologize.
Naive Obama must learn that America is hated not because of personalities but because of our national interests and beliefs. It’s why Republicans fight Democrats – issues. Issues matter.
In the very first big vote in the House of Representatives the hopey dopey Obama was ropey dopey-ed.
Recall Hillary, during the primary campaign when Barack Obama acted all superior to you because he would talk without preconditions to leaders of countries such as Iran. Obama’s hopey dopey Hopium addled addicts cheered boob Obama and booed sharp and ready on Day 1 Hillary Clinton. Obama foolishly promised that YES he would (”I would.”) meet 1) separately; 2) without precondition; 3) during the first year; 4) in Washington or anywhere else; 5) with leaders of Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea.
“Yes, and I think actually Senator Clinton’s right though. Before that meeting takes place, we need to do the work, the diplomacy, to make sure that that meeting’s not going to be used for propaganda purposes, will not be used to just beat down the United States of America in the world community.”
Obama foolishly insisted he was correct and laughingly stated he was smarter than all of you on foreign policy because he lived in Indonesia when he was 6 years old.
Hillary, you knew better and did not give in to the hopey dopey crowd who ignore reality and live not in reality based communities but in their own fantasy world of Hopium and “cool” posters of maximum leader.
Obama said he would talk to opposition leaders without preconditions. Republicans showed him in the House of Representatives the danger of that stupidity.
Oh, and now that she is up for re-election and afraid of Hillary supporters mobilizing against her, Claire McCaskill is pretending to care about Americans and opposing the bum Obama flim-flam “stimulus” bill and the Dimocrats in the House of Representatives. Claire McCaskill will face a tough reelection campaign and Hillary supporters will be there to make her campaign even tougher.
The celestial choirs have disappeared Hillary. They were never there.
There are no celestial choirs in a Toilet Bowl.
