R.I.P. Obama OAFs

Barack Obama is finding out that Diana, Princess of Wales was right – “Being a princess isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.”

The embarrassment-in-chief is the subject of the Washington Post‘s polite form of political obituary for the still breathing – “The Post asked political experts what he could do to regain the initiative.” Even the brain-stem deprived Donna Brazile is mustered into the effort to save Princess Obama.

As Jennifer Rubin at Commentary Magazine put it: Well, it’s never a good sign when mainstream papers are running symposiums to examine what, if anything, can be done to save the remainder of the president’s term.”

Left Liberals like Amy Goodman at Truthdig seem to suggest that as a first step Obama cease some of the more obvious corruptions, which he used to campaign against:

It looked like it was business as usual for President Barack Obama on the first day of his Martha’s Vineyard vacation, as he spent five hours golfing with Robert Wolf, president of UBS Investment Bank and chairman and CEO of UBS Group Americas. Wolf, an early financial backer of Obama’s presidential campaign, raised $250,000 for him back in 2006, and in February was appointed by the president to the White House’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board. Economic recovery for whom?

Amy is miffed that Obama is seen in flagrante delicto with Wolf – a creature heavy laden with so many tax, um, issues. It’s bad form, Barack.

As heartbreaking as Amy’s complaints are, they do not begin to compare with the whiney howls of the Hopium addled coming from the west coast. Grab your hankies, pry open the tissue boxes, and try not to laugh at this sad skull in search for a brain:

People, get ready, you said; there’s a train a ‘coming. And we did get ready. We hit the streets. We roared, whispered, cried, whooped and went door to door, convinced that even if Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had not specifically dreamed of you, his dream of justice and equality and pride might come into being through your vision, your greatness, through the hope that your words gave us, through the change you promised.

He dreamed of a leader like you. Just like you. And something in the deepest part of this country’s soul heard.

After eight years of Bush, and then the Palin nomination, we were battered and anguished and punch-drunk. But in rallying behind you, we came back to life, like in Ezekiel when the prophet breathes the spirit of bearing witness and caring onto the dry bones, and those bones come back to life, become living people again, cherished and tended to.

Can you believe such foolishness? Is this an actual grown-up? What insult is sufficient to describe the level of stupidity evidenced in this letter from “author” Anne Lamott to her majesty Barack Obama?

More from the comic ignorance of Lamott:

I hate to sound like a betrayed 7-year-old, but you said. And we believed you. Now you seem to have abandoned the dream. That is why moderates and liberals and progressives like myself all seem a little tense this summer. It is time to call your spirit back. We will be here to help when you get back from vacation.

Lamott ends her letter with “Trusting you, Mr. Obama.” This is a truly stupid woman.

But Lamott is not alone in her stupidities.

Lamott has plenty of company amongst the Hopium addled. Lamott has a whole lot of company in that astroturf mess called “Organizing For America”. “Organizing For America” which we choose to abbreviate as the more appropriate “OAF” is the former Obama campaign goons. The OAFs are not very bright. And guess who warned the OAFs? That’s right, good ol’ Big Pink warned the OAFs.

In Pocket Change, we warned the OAFs when they first began to notice that something was odd about their Mess-iah:

“Sad little Hopium addicts – they know they have been abandoned as the flim-flam “Music Man” wanders off in search of new victims to bamboozle and canoodle.

Over where the orange sulfur burns, the Hopium addicts walked into walls knowing daddy isn’t coming back.

Tuesday night I was on a conference call with Organizing For America, what the Obama campaign structure has morphed into since the campaign. I, along with thousands of other former Obama campaign volunteers, expected to get our marching orders, told who we should telephone, e-mail, visit, blog about – whatever it took to get the best possible stimulus legislation out of Congress.

But that didn’t happen. Instead, we heard about house parties for the weekend and future conference calls. Building blocks for the future – yes. But action for the here and now? No.

Sad little creatures, they are under the bus, still saluting. They try to understand why the man at the wheel of the bus so resembles their Mess-iah. Still, they salute, and hope. The miserable have no other medicine But only hope.

There is no way Obama will allow his minions to actually grab political power and give direction to him. True, Obama set up a corral for his prancing ponies. But the organization Obama Anonymous Organizing for America is a slaughter house. OA is not a place for political wannabees to set themselves up to challenge Obama when the Hopium wears off and they discover the Doctor wants to kill the monster.

We do excuse the Hopium addled, they don’t know better. But some should know better yet still making excuses for Obama instead of accepting the obvious: Obama can’t be trusted.”

In Pocket Change we took David Corn to the woodshed for acting stupid and asking “Will Obama mobilize his millions?” and “Why hasn’t the Obama White House already directly engaged its supporters in this fight?” We wrote:

Obama does not want a rival power center to emerge when his supporters wake up and realize they have been scammed.

Get that Anne Lamott? Let’s repeat yet again what we wrote in February for fools like Lamott:

There is no way Obama will allow his minions to actually grab political power and give direction to him. True, Obama set up a corral for his prancing ponies. But the organization Obama Anonymous Organizing for America is a slaughter house. OA is not a place for political wannabees to set themselves up to challenge Obama when the Hopium wears off and they discover the Doctor wants to kill the monster.

Obama wants a free hand to work his deals with lobbyists, hospitals, insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies without those pesky idiots who believed a Corrupt Circus Clown From Chicago.

The OAFs can also read our November 5, 2008 article Big Media Elects Its Stooge:

Last night Obama kool-aid drinkers think they won, but they did not. It was a win for Big Media and the Obama strategy, as betrayed by his history, of picking an unsavory actor and doing his (in this case, its) bidding in order for Obama to advance himself.

Obama kool-aid drinkers will swagger in confidence and proclaim themselves winners. But they will soon learn they are not part of the “we” in “we won”. Americans who, battered by years of Bush and his myriad disasters, cast aside their doubts about Obama in desperate hope for “change” will also discover they are not part of the “we” of “we won”. [snip]

Obama kool-aid drinkers will soon be presented with the small fine print of Obama’s promises. They will soon read Obama’s legal escape clause. It may take some time, but not long before Obama “desperation” supporters and even eventually some of the kool-aid drinkers, will realize that Obama will not keep his promises. Like with FISA, Obama will soon forget all those campaign promises and crib drown them in a sea of flowery words and say “it can’t be done now”.

Ninnies like Anne Lamott will think we wrote those articles today, not last year and early this year.

The OAFs know we are right but they can’t let go of their OAFish ways. A few days ago, on drive over the bridge Friday, we laughed as OAFs scratched their heads:

Since January, most advocacy groups committed to Obama’s reform objectives (labor unions, community organizations, environmentalists and netroots groups such as MoveOn) have pushed the pause button. Organizing for America, for example, encouraged Obama’s supporters to work on local community service projects, such as helping homeless shelters and tutoring children. That’s fine, but it’s not the way to pass reform legislation.

One Obama campaign volunteer from Delaware County, Pa., put it this way soon after the election: “We’re all fired up now, and twiddling our thumbs! . . . Here, ALL the leader volunteers are getting bombarded by calls from volunteers essentially asking ‘Nowwhatnowwhatnowwhat?’

Poor OAF, asking “Now what?” instead of determining “what” now. Single-payer? Universal health care? Ban the lobbyists? Poor OAF, follows orders in robotic fashion then calls Republicans robotic.

Poor OAF, follows orders over the cliff and demands Hillary supporters jump too.

You go ahead OAF. Jump off the cliff OAF.

Hillary supporters will sit back laughing as you jump for your Mess-iah.

Rest In Peace OAFs.

New Dance Craze Sweeps Nation

As summer ends, that fashion maverick, icon to the clueless, Michelle Obama has done it again.

Michelle is now a music trendsetter too!

Michelle Obama has started a new dance craze which is sure to sweep the young ‘uns and the befuddled.

The new dance craze – it’s called “The Scowl”.

Women can do “The Scowl” best when sleeveless or near sleeveless. Wear a huge bow which twirls for takeoffs – attach lights to the bow for extra attention.

Throw yourself on the floor; do a push-up. Keep those biceps threatening. Do “The Scowl”.

Put your hands above your eyes to scan what everyone else is wearing. When you spot someone who is classy, like Hillary Clinton, do “The Scowl”.

Men can do “The Scowl” too. Men – just jut your jaw and brush your shoulders. You’re doing “The Scowl”.

Be as arrogant and selfish and cold and ungrateful and careerist and self-centered as can be. You’re doing “The Scowl”.

The bow-tie, the music, the glamour! Just like Soupy!

(chorus) Hey, do “The Scowl”, yeah.
Hey, you can do it in your house, yeah.

(break) Jut your jaw like Mussolini,
Here comes Barack in a Lamborghini.

(chorus)Hey, do “The Scowl”, yeah.
Hey, you can “Scowl” in a funeral house, yeah.

The Day Universal Health Care Died

Like Ismael, ship sunk by the white whale, Obama hopes now to survive by clinging to the floating casket of Ted Kennedy. It is not the first time.

We began to pick apart the curtains hiding what really happened in 2008 in Caroline Goes Plouffe:

The Obama nomination was gift-wrapped in Massachusetts [The real story of the Obama nomination gift is yet to be told. The Godfather fans will remember Godfather telling Tom Hagen Obama’s Tattaglia’s a pimp…. But I didn’t know until this day that it was Ted Kennedy Barzini all along].

It was Ted Kennedy all along. It was Kennedy who sought to preserve the memory of a false Camelot at the expense of a real America.

It was Kennedy, the Fredo of the Kennedy clan, with all his brackish history of death and sex, who sought redemption for himself and the family by keeping alive the flickering light of history as it turned to others such as the Clintons.

Like the hapless Fredo of Godfather fame, Teddy was the dimmest of three brothers:

Three days after that funeral, the Kennedys gathered at Hyannis Port for what was expected to be a somber Thanksgiving. Over that weekend, Teddy stayed up with friends one night, drinking and swapping bawdy tales about the party times with Jack. The next morning, his children’s governess quit, confiding to Rita Dallas, Joe Kennedy’s nurse, that she was appalled by Teddy’s behavior. Dallas tried unsuccessfully to convince her that it was all part of a traditional Irish wake and that she should stay.

Of course, it was more than just grieving for Jack. The ninth of nine children, Teddy’s role in the family had been that of the court jester, the jokester who entertained friends and acquaintances with stories and jokes. The man who had spent much of his life getting laughs for his role as the baby brother must have known intrinsically that Jack’s death permanently changed his standing and role in the family.

For all the good he did, Ted Kennedy’s role increasingly degenerated to preservation of the family and its legends and myths.

To those ends, the mummification of what was once flesh and blood, Ted Kennedy was the force behind Obama all along. With the Axelrod dress rehearsal during the Deval Patrick gubernatorial campaign the Obama campaign was indeed hatched and gift-wrapped in the Kennedy compound in Massachusetts.

It was Kennedy all along. John Kerry (and Christopher Dodd), would not make a move without explicit orders from Ted Kennedy. And for all the obfuscation, John Kerry privately endorsed Barack Obama well before the Iowa caucuses.

That’s right. John Kerry, with Ted Kennedy’s approval, endorsed Barack Obama before the Iowa caucuses. The public announcement however was withheld until after the New Hampshire primary because that is when the death blow was supposed to be dealt to Hillary Clinton. The Obama campaign knew it would win Iowa. Kerry, would endorse after another Obama victory in New Hampshire – and he would do it in crucial South Carolina. Big Media would know Kerry was moving on orders from Ted. This, it was presumed, would destroy Hillary.

The endorsement was weeks in the making. In the final days before the Iowa caucuses, Mr. Kerry was on the verge of announcing his support for Mr. Obama, aides said, but a final decision wasn’t made because it was not clear how it would affect the campaign. So Mr. Kerry decided to hold off on the endorsement until after New Hampshire primary.

But Hillary won New Hampshire. Hillary could not so easily be killed. So Kennedy played the race card for Barack Obama. Richardson, Dodd, Biden, all dropped out by then too on orders from Ted, but they kept lying to Bill Clinton.

Ted Kennedy pretended he was offended by Bill Clinton statements in South Carolina. Ted Kennedy pretended Hillary had insulted the Kennedy’s by saying it took Lyndon Johnson, not JFK, to pass the 1964 Civil Rights Act. But it was all pretend. Kennedy was on board with Obama well before John Kerry was on board – before the Iowa caucuses – well before.

* * * * *

By Thursday, August 28, 2008, the Democratic Party of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and John Kennedy was gutted – to be replaced with fake Grecian columns and a death coalition in Denver.

Ted Kennedy, the master misogynist as recalled by Joan and Mary Jo, dealt the sexism, misogyny and race cards to the major players in what once was a glorious party.

Now, Obama Dimocrats along with Obama hope to slap health care reform legislation labels to the Kennedy casket as if it is to be in competition in NASCAR.

The Kennedy NASCAR casket holds a decomposing body so it is appropriate that the decomposing corpse Obama calls health insurance reform share the Ted Kennedy name.

Now we hear that 46 years experience in the Senate is valuable. Only now, from the Kennedy die nasty clan and friends do we hear odes to experience.

One year and one day ago, universal health care reform died. Ted Kennedy drove it over the bridge.

The Death Of Ted Kennedy

Yesterday we would have mourned, perhaps wept.

If yesterday was before the foisting of the inexperienced, unqualified Obama on the nation, if yesterday was before helping George W. with No Child Left Behind, if yesterday was before the dynastic promotion of the inexperienced, unqualified Caroline, we would have mourned, perhaps wept.

This morning we woke to the sound of a bagpipe. The lament came from a construction worker, at the top floor of a construction site. In military poise and workingman clothes the construction worker paid solemn tribute with the pained tones of the pipes. There was no need to explain why the pipes moaned. We knew if was for the last brother.

We thought of the Arthurian novel The Once And Future King. King Arthur, on the eve of a battle in which he knows he will lose his life speaks to thirteen year old Thomas Mallory. The great king of legend and Camelot and Avelon reveals what animated his work and gives a mission to young Tom.

King Arthur tells Tom to flee from the battlefield that very night, to go home without hesitation and without disobedience and without illusions. “Don’t get these legendary people muddled up” Arthur tell the boy. “It is I who tell you about my idea.”

Asks Arthur of the young Tom, “Will you promise to be careful of yourself afterward? Will you try to remember that you are a kind of vessel to carry on the idea, when things go wrong, and that the whole hope depends on you alive?

Then Arthur, the great soon-to-be-slain King of legend, confides the great mission to the brokenhearted slender boy on a dark night before a great battle:

Thomas, my idea of those knights was a sort of candle, like these ones here. I have carried it for many years with a hand to shield it from the wind. It has flickered often. I am giving you the candle now–you won’t let it out?”

Mallory lived to carry out his mission and never let the fires of Camelot burn out in the hearts of men, and women. But, one yesterday in 2008, Ted Kennedy snuffed out the fire he was entrusted with.

We do not mourn, we do not weep today. We can however remember our own innocent days when we defended Ted in Palm Springs. We can remember happier days before he drove the party of FDR over the bridge.

We can remember the “Teddy” before he blocked Hillary from having any meaningful leadership role in the Senate on health care because he wanted to lead the charge. Instead of leading the charge, he took with himself a crucial vote. What he wanted to cradle, he strangled.

We will remember the young Ted, voice breaking for his slaughtered brother and for his other slaughtered brother. We will remember the young Ted, smooth-skinned, black haired, and slender.

But too many of us have been driven over the bridge to weep today. We can remember. We can carry our own candles now.

The Mephisto Waltz

Update: 1:28 a.m. August 26, 2009, International Women’s Day – Ted Kennedy Is Dead. Special election for his Senate seat will be held in 5 months. Senate Dimocrats now have 59 Senate seats. The Obama vacation continues. The Mephisto Waltz continues.

————————————————————————————————-

Exactly one year ago today the Mephisto Waltz began to play in Denver, signaling the death of the Democratic Party, and the death of Universal Health Care and health care reform along with any fight for core Democratic values.

On August 25, 20008 we wrote:

Obama supporters email us ever day with pleas to “unite” and support the unqualifed Obama. [snip]

The problem with all these emails are that they do not accept what we know to be true: Obama is not qualified to be president. Obama is a divider. Obama race-baited, and gay-bashed, and woman hated, throughout the primary. That is how Barack Obama would govern.

Spare us your emails, We Do Not Trust Obama. Obama cannot be trusted by either “friend” or foe. We do not believe anything Obama says. We will not be “red flagged” like bulls into supporting the unqualified, race-baiting, and gay-bashing, and woman hating, Barack Obama. Hope that Obama is telling the truth this time about abortion, the Supreme Court, the Iraq War, the economy, or uniting the country is not enough. We don’t believe or trust Barack Obama because we have seen him close up and examined his “present” voting record and been burned by his race-baiting.

One year later, the full horror of the Third Bush Term confronts Americans.

Pretend Progressives, or Progressives In Name Only (PINOs), eggheads, now say what we have been saying:

During most of the last 40 years, the Democratic Party has defined itself primarily through opposition to the ascendant Republican Party. Never was this clearer, or more necessary, than during the eight years of the Bush presidency. Public anger at the Republicans by the end of the Bush administration was almost certainly the major contributing factor to major Democratic victories in 2006 and 2008. Being the party of opposition relieved the Democratic Party of having to initiate or agree upon any vision or policies. This worked fine, until the Democrats won control of both houses of Congress and the White House in 2008.

The failed policies of the Bush administration and the extraordinary desire for change during the last few years masked the reality that once again the Democratic Party was not unified around, and to some extent did not really stand for, anything. This was not a problem during the campaign or even the last two years of the Bush administration, because the Democratic Party could effectively define itself almost entirely relative to the Republican Party. However, it has become a big problem now.

There once was a Democratic Party, but not the current obomination. Hillary Clinton is a leader and a fighter for core Democratic values, but Dimocrats like Dean/Pelosi/Brazile/Kerry/Kennedy gifted the Democratic nomination to an unqualified, inexperienced, man – who was at best just like the inexperienced George W. Bush. The Republicans during the eight Bush years surrendered their purported values in defense of George W. Bush. The Democratic Party set itself ablaze, in Denver, in August 2008, in order to worship at the false prophet, golden calf, Barack Obama.

Pretend Progressive, PINO, Richard Cohen of the Washington Post writes one year after August 25, 2008:

In the end, the success of the health care reform effort comes down to trust. A lesson of the raucous town-hall meetings is the sense of panic, the fear that this man in the White House does not appreciate the anxiety that middle-class Americans fear about health care — whether they will keep what they have, whether they will have enough or whether their last years will be spent in painful, degrading poverty.

Trust? Trust?? Trust???

Obama simply cannot be trusted. Obama cannot be trusted on any issue. Obama cannot be trusted by his friends. Obama cannot be trusted by his enemies. Obama cannot be trusted.

Fouad Ajami, one year after August 25, 2008:

We were led to this summer of discontent by the very nature of the coalition that brought Mr. Obama, and the political class around him, to power, and by the circumstances of his victory. The man was elected amid economic distress. Faith in the country’s institutions, perhaps in the free-enterprise system itself, had given way. Mr. Obama had ridden that distress. His politics of charisma was reminiscent of the Third World. A leader steps forth, better yet someone with no discernible trail, someone hard to pin down to a specific political program, and the crowd could read into him what it wished, what it needed.

The leader would be different things to different people. The Obama coalition was the coming together of disparate groups: the white professional liberals seeking absolution for the country in the election of an African-American man, the opponents of the Iraq war who grew more strident as the project in Iraq was taking root, the African-American community that had been invested in the Clintons and then came around out of an understandable pride in one of its own.

Hillary represents the successful FDR coalition that led with courage and fight for core Democratic values where justice was more than a literary quote from an historic figure in the land of E Pluribus Unum. Obama represents a collection of vapors, mouthing words from well educated callow misogynists scribbling on TelePrompters.

One year after August 25, 2008, Universal Health Care has no champion – she is busy saving the world. Obama is the enemy of universal health care and health care reform.

Liberal icon Russ Feingold, in a moment of unstudied truthtelling:

U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold told a large crowd gathered for a listening session in Iron County last week there would likely be no health care bill before the end of the year – and perhaps not at all.

It was an assessment Feingold said he didn’t like, but the prospect of no health care legislation brought a burst of applause from a packed house of nearly 150 citizens at the Mercer Community Center.

Nobody is going to bring a bill before Christmas, and maybe not even then, if this ever happens,” Feingold said. “The divisions are so deep. I never seen anything like that.”

Feingold reiterated his appraisal a bit later.

We’re headed in the direction of doing absolutely nothing, and I think that’s unfortunate,” he said when asked about the plight of uninsured Americans.

Feingold added: “This thing right now is not going in the right direction. We might be in a situation where there won’t be a bill worth passing.”

There won’t be a bill worth passing because there is no president to trust. George W. Bush and Obama both promised to be “uniters” but one year later Feingold says “The divisions are so deep. I never seen anything like that.”

If there is any unity to be seen it is seniors and young people (one of the noodles in the new Obama stew of vapors) increasingly coming together in disgust:

First off, note Obama’s drop-off among young people. Young people were supposed to be a critical component of the new Democratic majority. Granted their approval is still slightly higher than the other groups, but it has far and away been the most volatile, dropping more than any other. This should not come as a huge surprise. Baby Boomers were partial to McGovern in 1972, but swung around to Reagan in the 80s. Young people’s political dispositions are still being formed.

Yet, Obama’s worst poll number here is actually his share among seniors. I’m guessing it relates to the health care debate. The White House should be very concerned, and for one simple reason: seniors vote.

Obama is busy termite-ing the American economy too. The Congressional Budget Office numbers outline the Obama economic disasters:

The U.S. national debt will nearly double over the next 10 years, government forecasts showed on Tuesday, challenging President Barack Obama’s economic and healthcare overhaul agenda. [snip]

The spending blitz could push the national debt, now more than $11 trillion, to close to $20 trillion. The debt is the total sum the government owes, while the deficit is the yearly gap between revenues and spending.

“If anyone had any doubts that this burden on future generations is unsustainable, they’re gone,” said Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, adding that economic stimulus funds should be diverted to pay down U.S. debt.

As we have repeatedly warned, the Obama “stimulus” scam along with the other economic scams threaten destruction. We warned of the dangers of hyper inflation.

Liberal icon Feingold now agrees with us, too late, of the dangers of hyperinflation:

“And I have told the administration not to count on me for another stimulus package. You can’t just keep doing this because it creates hyperinflation.”

Feingold also said he has not been a supporter of so-called cap-and-trade proposals, and he compared the issue to global warming, at least with respect to gaining cooperation from other nations.

“You know, the other countries won’t play ball,” he said of his attempts to get the international community to work together on global warming. “Maybe we should impose tariffs. We should put some pressure on them. They cannot be given a free pass, and we cannot do cap-and-trade alone.”

It’s not just health care nor cap and trade, not Afghanistan, nor Iraq, not renditions, not ACORN – it the totality of Obama’s rootlessness, deceptions and corruptions that stink in the nostrils of American history.

Americans could have had a leader with the courage to fight for core Democratic values. Instead of tooth rotting softdrinks we could have had a V8. Instead of soul crushing, inexperienced, unqualified, gay-bashing, woman-hating, flim-flam man Obama – we could have had Hillary!

Instead, the first of the four Mephisto Waltzes began to play one year ago today.

Racist Senator Chuck Schumer

Barack Obama is furious with black and blind New York Governor David Paterson.

You see, David Paterson is playing the “racist” card in order to get elected for the first time to the Governorship he inherited due to resigned Governor Eliot Spitzer’s problems.

Barack Obama wants to hold the “racist” card in reserve as his trump card to save his near death “health” scam.

Senator Chuck Schumer… well, let’s start at the beginning.

* * * * *

In January, the luscious Big Pink was under attack by the Hopium addled because of our unbridled opposition to Caroline Kennedy as successor to the great and wonderful Senator Hillary Clinton. The Nutroots did not like us blocking Uncle Ted Kennedy’s attempt to impose Caroline on New Yorkers.

At the time we wrote several articles on Caroline’s doomed hopes to be appointed Senator by intimidating Governor David Paterson with Uncle Teddy’s mighty girth. We also noted (mind you this was in January when everyone else was writing about how indestructible Barack Obama was) that there was an “emerging NObama coalition”. This is what we wrote in Kirsten Gillibrand And The Emerging NObama Coalition, Part I (before we were proven right):

Later we began a series (as of yet no Part II, but perhaps it is still timely to publish and there is still interest) about our privately heard information, again before the curve, that Senator Chuck Schumer is A, if not THE, secret hand against the Caroline power grab and why Hillary Supporters and Upstate New Yorkers would prevent Caroline Kennedy becoming the appointed U.S. Senator. The Schumer rumors have now been confirmed, after the beheading, by Big Media outlets.

In the above quote we cited our December 2008 report (Caroline Goes Plouffe). In December we wrote: “(1) The Caroline Kennedy power grab is running out of air due to the resistance from Hillary supporters and because of the stench fouling out from Chicago.” At the time we also wrote “Caroline will not replace the irreplaceable Hillary Clinton.”

Yup, we were right. We also quoted Steve Clemons at The Washington Note with this ludicrous bit of news which we include here for the comic value:

Obama started with the Daley franchise in Chicago and then built into that the Daschle franchise, followed by the Kennedy franchise, and is now working very hard to absorb the Clinton political machine which is larger and more potentially dangerous to Obama than any of the others. [snip]

There is a saying that “those who supported Obama got a President and those who supported Hillary got a job” — as many of her loyal followers are popping up with key positions throughout the government while many of those who helped Obama from the beginning of his candidacy are still in the cold. And then there is Kennedy — and that big family brand that connects with so many in the country, particularly in labor union America. Ted Kennedy will soon die – and Obama (and many other of the Kennedys) want to see Caroline in the political game in a high profile way to provide leadership for the tens of thousands of capable political hands that Kennedy’s machine has produced to be loyal both to her stewardship of the family operation and then loyal to Obama.

Enjoy this laugh too from Clemons:

But the plan Ted “may have had”, they say, had little to do with the New York Senate seat. It had to do with succeeding Obama in 2016.

The game plan — whether real or fantasy – is intriguing. It goes something like this. Caroline Kennedy would be appointed now to the Senate. She would perform well above the very low expectations many had for her and win handily the seat in the 2010 mid-term race in which that Senate seat needs to be contested again. She would then be in place until 2016. Ted Kennedy’s view “may be” that Caroline would instantly out-shine Hillary Clinton in the eyes of New York voters and in the American political scene and that in 2016, Caroline Kennedy would be 59 while Hillary Clinton would be 69.

I have no idea whether Ted Kennedy owned this narrative. All I know is that his friends and many key pillars of Kennedy Land believed that something along these lines is what animated Ted’s highly strategic approach to Caroline’s political future.

Enter Senator Chuck Schumer to stomp on the grandiose hopes and dreams.

Why did Chuck do such a mean ol’ thing to Barack Obama and Uncle Teddy and Caroline? Senator Chuck Schumer is running for reelection in 2010. Chuck Schumer did not want to have to babysit a novice Caroline Kennedy running for office alongside him in 2010. Chuck Schumer also did not want to run alongside a potentially 100% New York City Democratic ticket (Assembly leader, Senate leader, Caroline, Chuck, Governor Patterson all live in New York City) in 2010 – not with the upstate vs. downstate dynamics in New York State politics.

So Chuck Schumer stepped on the Caroline/Obama dynastic ambitions.

Chuck Schumer intends to get reelected easily and with big majorities and no one will stand in his way if he can help it. Chuck sees the problems Dimocrats face in 2010 and he will take no chances. Chuck will not go the way of Boxer or Reid or Dodd with tough reelection campaigns – not if he can help it.

And so Chuck Schumer, the U.S. Senator from New York is now working with labor unions and Dimocrats to get rid of African-American David Paterson.

Chuck Schumer hates Andrew Cuomo, the likely David Paterson replacement, but Chuck knows reelection will be easier with Cuomo at the top of the ticket than with barely double digits Paterson.

And remember, Andrew Cuomo cannot be the one to force Paterson out. Let’s quote ourselves quoting others:

Andrew Cuomo knows he cannot run against a black man in a Democratic primary. Andrew knows this, not because of Obama’s race-baiting during the 2008 primary, but because Andrew has been there, done that.

But as we’ve mentioned here before, that line of analysis seems to ignore the impact of Cuomo’s disastrous 2002 challenge to Carl McCall for the Democratic nomination. Aside from running an immature campaign, Cuomo’s decision to try to take the nomination away from a longer-serving official striving to become the first African-American elected governor in NY was badly received from the start.

Challenging an incumbent in a primary involves the same kind of too-much-in-a-hurry chutzpah. Challenging an African-American appointed incumbent who is trying, again, to become the first black man elected governor would arouse the same resentments.

A Paterson vs. Cuomo primary would devastate Cuomo. First of all there is no love between the Kennedy Dynasty and the Cuomo Dynasty, what with that messy divorce business. Second, Paterson will most likely have the African-American community united behind him. More importantly Paterson would have Cuomo’s former vanquisher, Carl McCall, doing whatever “work” needs to be done. McCall is on board with Paterson and has recently defended him.

H. Carl McCall, the former state comptroller and a Democratic candidate for governor in 2002, defended Mr. Paterson’s handling of the appointment, pointing out that Ms. Kennedy’s own uneven performance and the intense worldwide scrutiny of her bid were factors beyond the governor’s control.

“I think that to look at his governorship in the light of this situation would be terribly unfair,” said Mr. McCall.

With the above history in mind, let’s look at recent developments. But first one more trip down memory lane a very important quote from Big Pink:

Because of Obama’s race-baiting during the 2008 primaries, African-American politicians know they now can have friends and allies shout “racism” when in trouble and thereby defeat their white opponents. These fake shouts of “racism” in the age of fake demean the long and well documented history of racial bigotry. But like Obama and Burris the “racism” shouters (some like Bill The Bomber Ayres shout “racism” to scare off scrutiny and they are not even African-Americans) know they will not be punished for their bogus, politically motivated, claims of racism.

Recent developments

Obama wants to play the “racist” card to resuscitate the corpse of his health insurance scam. Obama is angry that Patterson is playing the race card, like a desperate riverboat gambler. Obama wants to play the “racist” card later, not now. Barack Obama thugs try to shush the black and blind Governor of New York:

President Obama’s aides were so furious that Gov. Paterson dragged him into a rant about racism that they sent a message sharply criticizing the governor’s comments just hours after he made them, The Post has learned.

Aides to Obama were angered by Paterson’s tirade on liberal talk-radio station WWRL on Friday, sources said.

Paterson blamed his political woes on racially slanted coverage and predicted the president would be the next “victim” of biased media.

Paterson might be legally blind but he is not politically blind. He knows the unnameable are out to get him:

Paterson is facing growing calls from union leaders and others to reconsider his chances of winning election in 2010.

Paterson, New York’s first black governor, is suffering historically low popularity. He blamed his and Obama’s problems on a white-dominated media that he said had embarked on an attack campaign.

“My feeling is it’s being orchestrated, it’s a game, and people who pay attention know that,” he said.

He compared his troubles to Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, the nation’s only other black governor, then brought in the president.

“The next victim on the list — and you see it coming — is President Barack Obama,” he said, citing his efforts to change health care.

Paterson said the health-care debate was an example of how the nation is “not a postracial” society, a phrase often proudly used to describe the United States in the wake of Obama’s election.

Paterson linking “racism” to the health-care debate is what really irks the Obama thugs. That “racist” card was supposed to be held in reserve. Paterson let the cat out of the bag.

Paterson is blind and his blindness is a problem which has and will continue to hurt Paterson (even Democrats acknowledge this). Paterson does not understand Braille and he must memorize all his speeches, no matter how complex the topic. But Paterson’s problems are not due to blindness nor blackness. Paterson has a host of other problems which we will not discuss here because they are not relevant to our discussion.

Paterson knows he has a big target on his back and he is responding from the “racist” race-baiting book written by Barack Obama:

Gov. David A. Paterson lashed out on Friday at critics who say he should not run for election, and he suggested that he was being undermined by an orchestrated, racially biased effort by the media to force him to step aside. [snip]

The governor, on a morning radio talk show, said that Gov. Deval Patrick of Massachusetts, the only other African-American governor, was suffering similar treatment, and he predicted that President Obama would, too.

“We’re not in the postracial period,” he told Errol Louis, a columnist for The Daily News and the host of the radio program, on WWRL-AM. “My feeling is it’s being orchestrated, it’s a game, and people who pay attention know that,” he added.

Obama supporters are running from the Governor for letting the cat out of the bag. How dare Paterson play the card Barack Obama owns!

Paterson’s poll numbers are “perilously low”, according to the New York Times. The numbers are so low, that as African-American Hillary supporters (who suffered and continue to suffer greatly for their apostasy), even African-Americans are “racists”.

Mr. Paterson suggested that Mr. Carter, who is black, was playing to white critics of African-American politicians by bringing up the subject. He also said that media outlets had mischaracterized what happened there. He said that he had not been out past midnight, as had been reported.

The governor suggested that it was part of a pattern of negative media coverage about him.

“We don’t have the kind of forces in the community that we had before,” he said. “In other words, our black media outlets, save your program and a few others, are the only ways we have access, and even our own reporters from our own community buy the public line, which is, ‘We’re going to get rid of David Paterson.’ ”

“The reality is that the next victim on the list is President Barack Obama, who did nothing more than try to reform a health care system” that, he said, constitutes 10 percent of the gross domestic product. It is “only because he’s trying to make change,” Mr. Paterson said.

Stop letting the cat out of the bag, David!

By the way, “Mr. Carter” refers to Domic Carter, not Jimmy. Dominic Carter knows how African-American Hillary supporters feel and felt (note from Big Pink to African-American Hillary supporters – thanks for your courage and integrity):

On NY1 Friday night, Mr. Carter addressed the governor’s suggestion that he was trying to curry favor with those who criticize African-American politicians. The governor had said Mr. Carter “likes to ingratiate himself with the folks trying to beat up on elected officials from our community.”

“I almost don’t know what to say,” Mr. Carter said. “The governor of the state of New York was calling me a modern-day Uncle Tom.”

“Anybody that knows my background — me, an Uncle Tom?” he said. “At the end of the day, I am a journalist, and we call them as we see them.”

Say “Uncle” Dominic.

The New York Daily News also wrote about the cat coming out of the bag:

Gov. Paterson said Friday he knows the reason behind the “crescendo” of calls for him not to seek re-election next year: it’s because he’s black.

Speaking on a morning radio show hosted by Daily News columnist Errol Louis, an angry Paterson blamed the white-dominated media for pushing him to step aside next year.

The whole idea is to get me not to run in the primary,” he said. Paterson complained there are not enough “black” media outlets to counteract the push.

And he suggested that Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, the country’s only other African-American governor, also is under fire because of his race.

“We’re not in the post-racial period,” Paterson said.

“The reality is the next victim on the list, and you can see it coming, is President Barack Obama, who did nothing more than trying to reform a health care system.”

“My feeling is it’s being orchestrated, it’s a game, and people who pay attention know that,” he said.

“We have a media that doesn’t report the news. We have a media that wants to make the news.

Stop letting the cat out of the bag, David. And “a media that wants to make the news” sounds like something we have heard before.

Oh David, what are we going to do with you?

Despite enjoying high approval ratings in his first several months in office last year, his popularity plummeted to as low as 18% after a series of mishaps in the late spring.

The latest polls show about 30% approving of the job Paterson is doing.

He also seemed to take a shot at Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, a possible primary competitor, Polls show Cuomo would trounce the governor in a match-up.

“If I run in the primary, the same people who are sitting in beach chairs while I’m in the oceans with the sharks will have to come in to the ocean – and they will be eaten alive.

They will be eaten alive by shouts of “racism”.

Which brings us back to Senator Charles “Chuck” Schumer.

How long will it be before Chuck Schumer gets called a “racist”?

Andrew Cuomo has already seen the sharks circling and yelling “racist”?

If Cuomo is called a “racist” can Chuck be far behind?

Orchestra conductor Senator Charles Schumer better watch out. The next “racist” he sees, might be in the mirror.

Obama’s Wee Wee

Obama simply cannot be trusted. Obama cannot be trusted on any issue. Obama cannot be trusted by his friends. Obama cannot be trusted by his enemies. Obama cannot be trusted.

We don’t know, we suspect Joe Biden or Michelle Obama had something to do with it, but on Thursday Barack Obama had this to say: “There is something about August going into September where everybody in Washington gets all wee weed up!”

We thought at the time that maybe getting “wee weed up” has something to do with Michelle Obama’s alleged “garden”, or perhaps this was a flashback to memories of his days smoking devil weed (pot, marijuana, doobies). Perhaps, we surmised, the “weed” in “wee weed” has nothing to do with organic weed but instead is a grammatical, past tense variation of “wee”. This possibility made us think of Pee Wee Herman for some reason.



Obama of course has neither the grace, intelligence, wit, cleverness, sense of style, communication skills, experience, qualifications, decent friends, persistence, honesty, nor dancing ability of the hapless, comic, Pee Wee.

* * * * *

Whatever it is, Obama is the one with the wee wee problem. Obama is shrinking to political impotence.

Obama this weekend faces flaccid polls to match his flaccid policies.

So flaccid is Obama that the master of all matters wee, George Stepanoupoulos, believes the best Obama can do is get lost (“the best short term antidote is a solid 2 week vacation“.)

We recommend, as a short term antidote, a solid 3 year vacation.

Wee George on Good Morning America also stated that the message from Americans to Obama is: “we’re worried you’re getting in over your head.” George know about being in over your head in more ways than one.

We knew two and a half years ago (actually we knew back in 2004 in the Four Seasons Hotel in Boston when we got our first good close up look at B.O.) that even if Obama was 20 feet tall he was in over his head.

But being a hapless flailing doofus is only a wee wee problem for Obama. The big problem for Obama is that Americans of all stripes, races, creeds, parties, ages, religions, regions, climates, geographies, sexes, orientations, colors, tastes, styles, and education levels are quoting good ol’ Big Pink:

Obama simply cannot be trusted. Obama cannot be trusted on any issue. Obama cannot be trusted by his friends. Obama cannot be trusted by his enemies. Obama cannot be trusted.

Americans are right to trust Big Pink and not believe Barack Obama – the Joker Clown from Chicago and his Circus of Crime and Corruption.

Nearly 70% of all Americans surveyed by Gallup say they expect higher taxes by the end of Obama’s term. That could explain the difficulty selling a healthcare overhaul.

Despite President Obama’s promise that only taxpayers earning more than $250,000 a year will pay higher taxes to support the healthcare initiative that he is proposing, the vast majority of Americans surveyed believe that they will pay higher income taxes by the final year of Obama’s term in 2012.

The apparently pervasive fear of higher taxes with 68 percent of all Americans surveyed by the Gallup Poll saying they expect higher taxes by the end of Obama’s term could help explain widespread uncertainty about the president’s plans for overhauling the delivery of health care and insurance.

Americans know a great reckoning is coming. Obama and the Dimocrats know a great reckoning is coming not only to America for electing Obama but also for Dimocrats for taking the nomination from Hillary to hand it over to an inexperienced, unqualified clown who loves to dump his dirty laundry on Friday nights when Americans are paying least attention:

The Obama administration expects the federal deficit over the next decade to be $2 trillion bigger than previously estimated, White House officials said Friday, a setback for a president already facing a Congress and public wary over spending.

A $2 trillion “oops” on a late Friday is not a wee problem. Obama is trying, to borrow from Howard Dean, to “hide the salami”. In this particular instance, $2 trillion is not a wee amount.

A $2 trillion “oops” and expectations of higher taxes. We have been right to warn Americans not to trust Obama and Americans are listening:

They simply don’t trust a thing this administration and the Congress is putting out there. The irony, of course, is that the Democrats and Obama thought that circumstance had handed them the perfect political storm with which to pass huge social programs liberals had dreamed of for decades. They had a crisis and, as Rahm Emanuel said, they weren’t going to let it go to waste.

A $2 trillion increase in the 10-year budget deficit projection is dumped on a Friday and then Obama goes off on a wee vacation to wealthy Martha’s Vineyard.

Record-breaking deficits have raised concerns about America’s ability to finance its debt and whether the United States can maintain its top-tier AAA credit rating.

Politically, the deficit has been an albatross for Obama, a Democrat who is pushing forward with plans to overhaul the U.S. healthcare industry — an initiative that could cost up to $1 trillion over 10 years — and other promises, including reforming education and how the country handles energy.

To Obama paying the bills is a wee problem.

What’s even more humiliating and frustrating for Barack Obama than the mess he creates is that the fan club is losing members. Americans, like lovers who used to love their partner’s aroma, now can’t stand the stink:

That said, the difficulties do appear daunting — so much so that he scaled back his time on television this week because Democratic focus groups and polls suggested that some Americans were growing tired of seeing so much of him.

Poor Obama, all he has to give is talk and a Joker grin, and now Americans don’t want to see him. Why watch or listen to someone you don’t believe or trust? Even senior citizens in Florida, dyed in the wool Democrats who were fooled by Dimocrats into voting for B.O. don’t trust Obama:

“I voted for President Obama, and I’m not ashamed to say that I’m sorry now because I don’t trust what he’s saying,” said Elaine Carl, 71, president of recreation at the development’s Phase 4. “I think they’re going to take away from Medicare, I really do.”

Paul Krugman, after attacking those that disagreed with the inexperienced, unqualified Obama as “racists” now seems to be a “racist” himself. Krugman says “progressives” don’t trust Obama:

So progressives are now in revolt. Mr. Obama took their trust for granted, and in the process lost it.

Big Obama shill Bob Herbert is beginning to realize that Americans don’t trust Obama. Still in worship mode, still bowing before the Obama he hardly knew, Hapless Herbert weeps: It’s still early, but people are starting to lose faith in the president. I hear almost daily from men and women who voted enthusiastically for Mr. Obama but are feeling disappointed. Bob Herbert must be a racist.

Glenn Greenwald must be a “racist” too. Greenwald repeats Big Pink on trust:

“On most fronts that matter — civil liberties, national security, economic policy, servitude to corporate interests, even rising opposition to Obama’s long-promised escalation of the war in Afghanistan — that defines rather clearly what the Obama/Emanuel approach has been thus far. Stopping it somewhere — anywhere — is vital, and for many reasons, the health care fight provides an excellent opportunity (at least as good as any) for doing so. Clearly — as first became conclusively clear when Obama so shamelessly reversed himself on FISA and telecom immunity — the Obama White House will not, on its own, cease following the dictates of Blue Dogs, “centrists” and the corporate interests which own them. That will only happen if they realize that their political power is threatened by building their power in service of corporate interests and by continuing to ignore the interests of those who elected them. The signs which Krugman identifies to show that Obama has lost the trust of many progressives is one important step, but preventing a health care bill that is nothing but an ill-gotten gift to the insurance and drug industries is a far more important step still. Whatever else one might want to say, changing who wins in Washington is the most important goal there is.”

Stop bothering Obama with details Greenwald, he’s off to the Vineyard for a wee bit.

* * * * *

Just before dumping the $2 trillion horror and heading off for a wee vacation to Camp David, on route to a wee wee vacation on Martha’s Vineyard, Barack Obama had his alter ego, the thug Robert Gibbs explain the “wee weed” remark. As we had suspected it had to do with the male ding-a-ling.

So what did the president mean when he said this week that everyone’s getting all “wee-weed up” in Washington?

“It’s a phrase I use,” White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said today, hesitating at his press briefing to offer a physical demonstration of the phraseology.

“Let’s do this in a way that’s family friendly,” Gibbs said. “I think ‘wee-weed up’ is when people get all nervous for no particular reason…. [snip]

“Bedwetting would probably be the more consumer-friendly term for it,” the press secretary said.

For Americans, an urine soaked White House mattress aptly describes the Obama stink. It’s not a wee problem.

Lift The Rock, Find Obama

August is traditionally the month for re-runs on television. We’re seeing a lot of re-runs of many earlier Big Pink articles this August – some from more than 2 years ago – before the voting even began in the then Democratic (pre Dimocratic) Primaries.

Some of the biggest and most respected “liberal” hornblowers for Obama are only now discovering the full ugliness which is Barack Obama and his Chicago Circus of Crime and Corruption.

Jane Hamsher at the ballyhooed Firedoglake is beginning to discover the treacheries of Obama:

You can see the fingerprints n the deals that they made: the $150 million PhRMA was spending on ads for health care reform, the $2.5 million they spent helping vulnerable freshmen, and the total fury that Boehner has unleashed on PhRMA and other stakeholders for making deals with the White House.

People make a mistake when they think the battle for health care reform is about ideology, because it’s not. It’s about who controls K Street and the cash that flows from it, which could fund a 2010 GOP resurgenece — or not.

Yup, it’s another Obama scam Jane, and those who elected him bear responsibility.

The GOP needs the money of PhRMA and other disgruntled businesses to fund its 2010 war chest. Just as it was during the bank bailout, the goal of the White House was clear: more important than saving the financial system was keeping the financial institutions happy and stop them from financing Republicans.

Who would think that way? Whose primary objective would be to keep anyone from funding a GOP ascendancy, to sell out health care reform worth billions for a hundred fifty million in pro-reform advertising? Who would think to ask PhRMA to run ads in the districts of vulnerable freshmen, as well as Blue Dog Mike Ross, who is anything BUT vulnerable? Certainly not some policy wonk.

But ask yourself — would consider it a victory to use the “public plan” as little more than a political pawn with which to threaten stakeholders and force them to stay at the table, with no thought as to the emotional and moral consequences suffered by the people who had pinned their hope on having one?

Jane blames the Jew, in this case Rahm Emanuel, instead of the real bête noire in the drama.

The White House never cared about getting Republican votes — it cared about keeping the Republicans from peeling off the dollars of stakeholders like PhRMA. Giving in to “Republican” demands was cover for writing shitty things into the bill that would keep the stakeholders happy. They didn’t need Republican votes, they never did, and they never truly cared. As long as the money stayed out of their campaign coffers, it was all good.

Blame the Jew Jane, but the corruption comes from Obama.

Glenn Greenwald, a generally good guy, is regurgitating earlier Big Pink articles too disguised as “news”.

Over the past decade, the Democratic Party has specialized in offering up one excuse after the next for its collective failures. During the early Bush years, the excuse was that they endorsed Bush policies because his popularity and post-9/11 hysteria made it politically unwise to oppose him. In later Bush years when his popularity plummeted, the excuse was that Democrats were in the minority and could do nothing. After 2006 when they won a Congressional majority, the excuse was that Bush still controlled the White House and had veto power. After 2008 when a Democrat won the White House, the excuse was that Republicans could filibuster.

Now that they have a filibuster-proof majority, a huge margin in the House and the White House, the excuses continue unabated, as Democrats are now on the verge of jettisoning one of the most significant attractions for progressives to the Obama campaign — active government involvement in the health insurance market. The excuses for “compromising” are cascading more rapidly than ever: We need Republican support to ensure it’s bipartisan. The Blue Dogs won’t go along with what we want. Centrist Senators will filibuster. There are similar excuses being made to defend Obama from accusations that he deserves some of the blame for the failure of the “public option.” Matt Yglesias makes the typical case for shielding Obama from any responsibility:

I think there’s something perverse in the very strong desire I see among liberals to make problems in congress be about anything other than congress. It’s just not in the power of Barack Obama to make the senate anything other than what it is.

I’m really surprised that there’s anyone, especially Matt, who actually believes this — that the Obama White House is merely an impotent, passive observer of what the Democrats in Congress do and can’t be expected to do anything to secure votes for approval of the health care bill it favors.

Greenwald finally gets to the crux of the hall of mirrors treacheries by Obama:

The attempt to attract GOP support was the pretext which Democrats used to compromise continuously and water down the bill. But — given the impossibility of achieving that goal — isn’t it fairly obvious that a desire for GOP support wasn’t really the reason the Democrats were constantly watering down their own bill? Given the White House’s central role in negotiating a secret deal with the pharmaceutical industry, its betrayal of Obama’s clear promise to conduct negotiations out in the open (on C-SPAN no less), Rahm’s protection of Blue Dogs and accompanying attacks on progressives, and the complete lack of any pressure exerted on allegedly obstructionists “centrists,” it seems rather clear that the bill has been watered down, and the “public option” jettisoned, because that’s the bill they want — this was the plan all along.

The Obama White House isn’t sitting impotently by while Democratic Senators shove a bad bill down its throat. This is the bill because this is the bill which Democratic leaders are happy to have. It’s the bill they believe in. As important, by giving the insurance and pharmaceutical industries most everything they want, it ensures that the GOP doesn’t become the repository for the largesse of those industries (and, converesly, that the Democratic Party retains that status).

These trumpeted epiphanies by the Greenwalds and the Hamshers and the rest of the Obama enablers are a pretext too. What’s left of the Dimocratic Left is trying to wash the responsibility for Obama from their hands. The hypocritical Dimocratic Left is busy in a Stalinist rewrite of history.

All those that thought we here at Big Pink were too harsh or too focused on “the negative” are now busy rewriting old Big Pink articles. Remember when we wrote about the fools who buy penis extension products? Remember our longest title ever? [Grand Unified Theory: The Obama Scams And The Dimocrat Scams Exposed (And Why You Can Ignore The Side Stories Like – Nancy Pelosi, Notre Dame, Torture, Gay Rights, The CIA, Wall Street, GM, Chrysler, Guantanamo, Cheney, Military Tribunals, FISA, Renditions, Abortion Rights, Universal Health Care, Swine Flu, Immigration, The Environment, Foreign Policy, The Economy, Inflation, Deflation, Unemployment, TARP, Credit Cards, Israel, Russia, China, Pakistan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Debt, Deficits, and The Supreme Court)] Excerpts from that earlier article which only now the “brains” of the Dimocratic Left are discovering:

The Extenz boys are not alone in their embarrassment. As we have written repeatedly, after the nomination was gifted to Obama by Dean/Pelosi/Brazile/Kennedy/Kerry, and the big electoral choices for most Americans became Obama and McCain, we wanted the Dimocrats to have uncontrolled power over the national government.

We wanted that because Americans need to see how nakedly corrupt the Obama Dimocratic Party is and how they only care about themselves. We understood that for Americans to see the thorough corruption that the once great Democratic Party has decayed into there could be no excuses – the Dimocrats needed to have undisputed, uncontrolled power. Like those Extenz users, the voters had to experience the ineffective flaccid crew they had just elected.

Supermajorities? We laughed at the transparent fakeness of it all:

After decades of saying they needed undisputed control of the government before they could do what they promised now they are saying even the super-majority is not enough.

Recall after the 2006 elections when many thought that election meant no funding of the Iraq war? Didn’t happen. The reason given was “not enough votes”. Fair enough, there were not sufficient votes with George W. Bush in the White House. Now the Dimocrats have all the votes they ever wanted and still that is not enough.

We still think, as we wrote then that This Obama Dimocratic Party appears only willing to fight for themselves and the big offices and spoils which go to the majority

On May Day we wrote:

Why don’t the Dimocrats pass now what they have been promising for years? [snip]

We’ll ponder all the promises Democrats have made over the years – and how the Dimocrats in the White House and in Congress can, but won’t [hint: they rather have the issues still alive so they can continue to fundraise off controversy] fulfill all those long promised promises – on another day.

It was always about the money and career advancement for Barack Obama.

Why won’t the Dimocrats do what they have been saying they would do for decades? Because the fundraising must go on. The money must flow. The promises must be broken. [snip]

Money might then flow to opponents.

Dimocrats also understand that they didn’t really mean all that stuff they said – that was only meant for the gullible.

We’re very sorry to inform the Dimocratic Left that universal health care died in Denver close to a year ago. Jane and Glenn must have missed it when we wrote:

Hillary supporters who fought for Hillary as the best vehicle to get universal health care now oppose health care – who’da thunk it? How can it be explained? What’s going on here? How can this be?

Think of it this way: A hungry person gets two invitations for dinner. The first invitation is from Julia Child. The second invitation is from Jeffrey Dahmer.

With the first invitation from Julia Child (a.k.a. Hillary Clinton) the hungry person is sure to get a delicious nutritious dinner from an experienced and knowledgeable and trustworthy cook who knows the pitfalls of the kitchen. With the second invitation from Jeffrey Dahmer (a.k.a. Barack Obama) the hungry person will be on the table as the dinner.

Health care was/is issue #1 for Hillary supporters but we know, for all the publicity stunts and all the hoopla and bamboozlement, real health care reform died when Hillary was denied the Democratic nomination. Now the Dimocratic Left is republishing as new what was known to Hillary supporters long ago.

The response from the Dimocratic Left has been to denigrate those who were not sticking themselves with syringes loaded with death-dealing Hopium.

The valiant Gene Lyons is still making excuses for Obama but he has one bit of good advice for the Hopium addled:

For every dogmatic tough guy who’s channeling some talk-radio blowhard, there are many citizens who give every outward indication of being scared witless.

Video of a town hall meeting with Democratic House members at Arkansas Children’s Hospital showed protesters trembling with emotion. Writing in the Washington Post, historian Rick Perlstein (“Nixonland”) noticed the same thing: “The quiver on the lips of the man pushing the wheelchair, the crazed risk of carrying a pistol around a president – too heartfelt to be an act.” [snip]

Too often, the Democratic response goes something like this: “The claims can be debunked a million times and it would make not one bit of difference to them. They hate President Obama, most of them are racists, and they are out to destroy him. They are irrational (barely) human beings with no conscience.”

Persuasive, don’t you think? [snip]

What’s needed, however, is a strong counter-narrative informing voters that they’re being had: conned, tricked and manipulated by, yes, New York, Washington and Hollywood “media elites” who lie for money. Vulgar? You bet. It’s called “populism,” and it once dominated the very states where talk-radio bombast now holds sway.

No, the argument can’t be won overnight. On the other hand, it can’t be won at all by calling people stupid racists.

Someday Gene will realize that Americans are “conned, tricked and manipulated by, yes, New York, Washington and Hollywood “media elites” who lie for money” and that the master flim-flam con man who manipulates with the assistance of Big Media elites is Barack Obama and his Dimocratic Party.

No doubt Gene, and Jane and Glenn will attack the old liberal Nat Hentoff for writing that indeed there are “death panels” and in Hentoff’s words “I am finally scared of a White House administration.”

Writes old liberal Hentoff:

I was not intimidated during J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI hunt for reporters like me who criticized him. I railed against the Bush-Cheney war on the Bill of Rights without blinking. But now I am finally scared of a White House administration. President Obama’s desired health care reform intends that a federal board (similar to the British model) — as in the Center for Health Outcomes Research and Evaluation in a current Democratic bill — decides whether your quality of life, regardless of your political party, merits government-controlled funds to keep you alive. Watch for that life-decider in the final bill. It’s already in the stimulus bill signed into law. [snip]

No matter what Congress does when it returns from its recess, rationing is a basic part of Obama’s eventual master health care plan. Here is what Obama said in an April 28 New York Times interview (quoted in Washington Times July 9 editorial) in which he describes a government end-of-life services guide for the citizenry as we get to a certain age, or are in a certain grave condition. Our government will undertake, he says, a “very difficult democratic conversation” about how “the chronically ill and those toward the end of their lives are accounting for potentially 80 percent of the total health care” costs.

This end-of-life consultation has been stripped from the Senate Finance Committee bill because of democracy-in-action town-hall outcries but remains in three House bills.[snip]

Condemning the furor at town-hall meetings around the country as “un-American,” Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are blind to truly participatory democracy — as many individual Americans believe they are fighting, quite literally, for their lives.

Liberal hero Greg Palast comes in too late to the fight. Air America, whose “liberal” hosts attacked and slashed at Hillary with obscenities now are uncomfortable with Barack Obama and his Chicago Circus of Crime and Corruption. RedDragon62 got the video:



“It makes me puke that we have just been Cheneyed by a guy named Barack Obama!”

We started writing about the Barack Obama Chicago Circus of Crime and Corruption more than two years ago, alone and criticized for not being “nice”. For the Janes, and Glenns, and Gregs, and Hentoff’s to catch on to reality this late in the fight is more than a shame.

It’s not about who wrote what first however. What matters is that Americans must find out that when you lift the rock, you find Obama.

The Barack Obama Death Certificate

Instead of health care, Obama is courting a political death for his inexperienced, unqualified, self and for the Obama Dimocratic Party.

As Obama courts political death, Bill Clinton celebrates his birthday. Today we celebrate along side good ol’ Bill. Happy Birthday Bill.

As Bill celebrates alongside Hillary, with big smiles and some giggles, followed by several hearty laughs; Barack Obama sees the approach of the high priests of the Obama church, laden with incense, accompanied by medical practioners – ready to administer last rites and sign the political death certificate for the Chicago incompetent who race-baited his way to the White House.

* * * * *

Political death approaches. Today not only has Obama slipped to 51% approval, the Dimocrats see Death’s scyth too.

Americans are in an increasingly sour mood about Washington. Barack Obama’s approval ratings continue to inch downward… [snip]

In the same vein, the new poll finds favorable ratings of the Democratic Party have declined sharply since spring. Just 49% now say they have a favorable view of the Democratic Party. [snip]

Public opinion about the national economy also is stuck, and on balance remains negative. Fully 90% rate economic conditions negatively – 52% say they are poor and 38% only fair. [snip]

However, the public’s personal financial assessments have become more bearish in the new poll than they were two months ago; currently, 55% say they expect their financial situation to improve over the next year, down from 63% in June. Since June, the decline in personal financial optimism has been particularly pronounced among middle-income and affluent Americans, as well as among Republicans and independents. [snip]

51% now approve of Obama’s job performance while 37% disapprove.

The most recent Gallup daily tracking poll also shows Obama at 51%.

As Obama loses even some of those that were foolish enough to vote for him the situation in Iraq is deadly.

A series of blasts in Baghdad killed 95 people and wounded 536 in Iraq’s bloodiest day this year, prompting a rare admission of culpability from Iraqi security forces struggling to cope without U.S. help.

At least six blasts struck near government ministries and other targets at the heart of Iraq’s Shi’ite-led administration, weeks after U.S. combat troops withdrew from urban centres in June, thrusting Iraq’s security forces into the lead role.

Death stalks Americans fighting in Afghanistan too:

As of Tuesday, Aug. 18, 2009, at least 708 members of the U.S. military had died in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Uzbekistan as a result of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan in late 2001, according to the Defense Department.

On the health care front Obama Big Media Thugs began to call Republicans “terrorists”. “They’ve become political terrorists” writes Steven Pearlstein in the Washington Post. Pearlstein apparently has not heard that Dimocrats have a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate and absolute control in the House of Representatives.

Perhaps “terrorist” is in the eye of the beholder. We do recall the howls from the Hopium addled when Obama the Obama besotted New Yorker published a certain cartoon.

Today, tired of abusing the word “terrorist”, Pearlstein attacks Dimocrats who want a public option.

Enough already with the public option!

It is not the be-all and end-all of health-care reform. It is not the long-awaited safety net for the uninsured. And if, as many liberals hope, it turns out to be nothing more than Medicare for All, it won’t do anything to hold down long-term growth in health spending.

The public option is nothing more than a political litmus test imposed on the debate by left-wing politicians and pundits who don’t want to be bothered with the real-life dynamics of the health-care market. It is the Maginot Line of health-care policy, and just like those stubborn French generals, liberal Democrats have vowed to defend it even if it means losing the war.

The White House is busy attacking the PINO dupes who actually attacked Hillary to support The Joker from Chicago.

“I don’t understand why the left of the left has decided that this is their Waterloo,” said a senior White House adviser, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “We’ve gotten to this point where health care on the left is determined by the breadth of the public option. I don’t understand how that has become the measure of whether what we achieve is health-care reform.” “It’s a mystifying thing,” he added. “We’re forgetting why we are in this.”

Obama was the one who pretended he thought the public option was a must-have. But that was when Obama PINO dupes believed everything he said, or that he actually cared about those suffering due to the health care system.

* * * * *

Pearlstein of course is right that the public option is dead. We of course have been saying all along that health care reform died in Denver amidst a temple erected by Dimocrats to worship at their golden calf.

By the way, the co-op idea is dead too.

Our Unified Theory of Dimocrats and all things Obama still holds.

Why won’t the Dimocrats do what they have been saying they would do for decades? Because the fundraising must go on. The money must flow. The promises must be broken.

Dimocrats also understand that accomplishments must meet expectations and that trying sometimes means failure – which could cost them at the ballot box.

Dimocrats also understand that fulfilling a promise to a constituency means that constituency might become satisfied and walk away to other pursuits and other fundraisers.

Dimocrats also understand that fulfilling a promise to one constituency often means angering another constituency. Money might then flow to opponents.

Dimocrats also understand that they didn’t really mean all that stuff they said – that was only meant for the gullible.

Republicans know the game, and they are rolling on the floor – laughing:

“We were forced into this by Republicans,” one official said. [snip]

Ken Spain, a spokesman for the National Republican Campaign Committee, said blaming the GOP is “laughable.”

“Apparently having a filibuster-proof majority, a 40-seat advantage in the House, and a president who was once really popular isn’t enough,” Spain said in a statement. “Maybe if people actually liked the bill, Democrats’ wouldn’t have such a tough time whipping up bipartisan votes, much less vulnerable Democrats within their own party.” [snip]

A Senate Republican leadership aide said Democrats are trying to blame the opposition for their own problems.

“It’s nice spin to try and pin their problems on the GOP,” the GOP aide said. “But they have such big majorities in Congress that they don’t need a single Republican vote to move their agenda. We could all stay home and they would still have 60 votes in the Senate. This is about getting around the reasonable wing of the Democrat party, and the clearest indication yet that their own party is divided on government health care, cuts to Medicare and taxes on small business.”

Republicans plan to accuse Democrats of strong-arm tactics if they try to pass health care with simple-majority reconciliation procedure. White House aides say this is an option but not the desired one, because of potential blowback in next year’s midterms.

And guess which birthday boy Obama wants to infect with unpopularity? Why it’s that mean old racist, relic from the forgettable past – Bill:

In a report sure to cause a stir online and on talk shows, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos reported on “Good Morning America”: “White House officials have talked privately about whether to use the Clintons more on health care.

Former President Bill Clinton spoke in Pittsburgh this weekend to Netroots Nation, a huge progressive bloggers’ convention.

“There have also been discussions about whether to deploy Secretary of State Clinton,” Stephanopoulos said. “No final decision on that yet.”

We have a better idea which we wrote about a while back: have Michelle, and the dog (if it has not already made a successful getaway) along with Barack, go back to Chicago – let Hillary run American foreign policy and Bill can take over the domestic portfolio.

We do know who is signing the Obama Death Certificate. It’s Warren Buffet. Buffet was a big Obama supporter who was trotted out during the election to made the distasteful Obama palatable. Warren Buffet is now filling his Montblanc fountain pen ready to sign the Death Certificate. Today Buffet writes this smorgasbord:

To understand this threat, we need to look at where we stand historically. If we leave aside the war-impacted years of 1942 to 1946, the largest annual deficit the United States has incurred since 1920 was 6 percent of gross domestic product. This fiscal year, though, the deficit will rise to about 13 percent of G.D.P., more than twice the non-wartime record. In dollars, that equates to a staggering $1.8 trillion. Fiscally, we are in uncharted territory.

Because of this gigantic deficit, our country’s “net debt” (that is, the amount held publicly) is mushrooming. During this fiscal year, it will increase more than one percentage point per month, climbing to about 56 percent of G.D.P. from 41 percent. Admittedly, other countries, like Japan and Italy, have far higher ratios and no one can know the precise level of net debt to G.D.P. at which the United States will lose its reputation for financial integrity. But a few more years like this one and we will find out.

Buffet notes that their are three ways to finance federal debt. The first two ways are to borrow money either from foreign governments/entities/individuals, or from Americans. The third way is to print money.

Buffet states that this year America will “force-feed” approximately $400 billion in debt purchases to the world. Buffet, assumes Americans will provide $500 billion to buy Treasuries. (Buffet puts aside the questions of whether other countries will continue to buy our debt as well as how much Americans save.)

Even with these heroic assumptions, the Treasury will be obliged to find another $900 billion to finance the remainder of the $1.8 trillion of debt it is issuing. Washington’s printing presses will need to work overtime.

Slowing them down will require extraordinary political will. With government expenditures now running 185 percent of receipts, truly major changes in both taxes and outlays will be required. A revived economy can’t come close to bridging that sort of gap.

We know Buffet shamed himself by bamboozling Americans that Obama was in any way qualified to lead this nation. But what Buffet writes is accurate. Here is the ominous portion of the Buffet warning:

Legislators will correctly perceive that either raising taxes or cutting expenditures will threaten their re-election. To avoid this fate, they can opt for high rates of inflation, which never require a recorded vote and cannot be attributed to a specific action that any elected official takes. In fact, John Maynard Keynes long ago laid out a road map for political survival amid an economic disaster of just this sort: “By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens…. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.

The Obama Death Certificate is being written for his political death.

Obama unchecked, Obama unstopped, threatens to sign the American Death Certificate.

The Joker, The Racist, The Gun

The Joker is back at it, fooling Americans. Silly “progressive” blog boys and girls are repeating what we have been saying for years now, via Paul Krugman:

If progressives had real trust in Obama’s commitment to doing the right thing, the administration would have broad leeway to do deals. But the president doesn’t command that kind of trust.

These fools sicken us. They let Obama get away with his FISA lies, before the Denver convention, almost a year ago, and now they are upset. All the lies, all the misogyny, all the sexism, all the race-baiting – and now they’re upset. Our vocabulary is too limited to describe the contempt we have for these fools and Left Talkers. We’ll repeat what we know about Obama The Joker – burn this into your “minds” those that dare call yourselves “progressives”:

Obama simply cannot be trusted. Obama cannot be trusted on any issue. Obama cannot be trusted by his friends. Obama cannot be trusted by his enemies. Obama cannot be trusted.

It took these “progressive” boys and girls this long to begin to understand Obama can’t be trusted. How long will it take these Joker’s fools to realize that expecting “progressive” Dimocrats in Congress to oppose their darling Obama is truly a fools errand? Already these “progressive” Dimocrats have signaled they will give their lives to The Joker and his Corrupt Chicago Circus. [

Get a clue you PINO fools – read why “reconciliation rules” will not work to revive this health care corpse and how congressional “progressives” crumbled already – after they signed that famous letter.

Obama Congressional Dimocrats are as reliable as Obama’s cologne.]

Chicago Clown

* * * * *

It turns out the “racist” who created the Obama The Joker poster is not a white man nor a white woman. Because the “racist” is not white, Big Media will ignore the story. We won’t.

Big Media was hysterical with shouts of “racism”. Long, tedious, non-imaginative articles were written trying to detect “racism” and code messages in what was clearly a very effective bit of artistry. The Washington Post led the hysteria with an article called Obama As The Joker: Racial Fear’s Ugly Face.

Obama, like the Joker and like the racial stereotype of the black man, carries within him an unknowable, volatile and dangerous marker of urban violence, which could erupt at any time. The charge of socialism is secondary to the basic message that Obama can’t be trusted, not because he is a politician, but because he’s black.

The lesson from the article is that no matter what Obama does he cannot be attacked because any and all attacks are racist. Let us be the first to damn those “progressives” and Paul Krugman who do not trust Obama as “racists, racists, racists”.

Who is the “racist” that created the Obama The Joker image. It turns out the “racist” is a 20 year old Palestinian socialist.

When cryptic posters portraying President Obama as the Joker from “Batman” began popping up around Los Angeles and other cities, the question many asked was, Who is behind the image?

Was it an ultra-conservative grassroots group or a disgruntled street artist going against the grain?

Nope, it turns out, just a 20-year-old college student from Chicago.

Bored during his winter school break, Firas Alkhateeb, a senior history major at the University of Illinois, crafted the picture of Obama with the recognizable clown makeup using Adobe’s Photoshop software. [snip]

Then the counter exploded after a still-anonymous rogue famously found his image, digitally removed the references to Time Magazine, captioned the picture with the word “socialism” and hung printed copies around L.A., making headlines.

Alkhateeb is not a fan of Barack Obama nor of Rahm Emanuel. Alkhateeb should be frightened. Alkhateeb is dealing with thugs who are sure to get at him.

Alkhateeb says he wasn’t actively trying to cover his tracks, but he did want to lay low. He initially had concerns about connecting his name with anything critical of the president — especially living in Chicago, where people are “very, very liberal,” he said.

After Obama was elected, you had all of these people who basically saw him as the second coming of Christ,” Alkhateeb said. “From my perspective, there wasn’t much substance to him.”

He’s not white, therefore no story for Big Media.

“I abstained from voting in November,” he wrote in an e-mail. “Living in Illinois, my vote means close to nothing as there was no chance Obama would not win the state.” If he had to choose a politician to support, Alkhateeb said, it would be Ohio Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich. [snip]

Although Alkhateeb claims he was making no political statement with the artwork, he’s plugged into the Washington debate. Though born in the United States, his Palestinian family closely follows Middle Eastern politics.

“I think he’s definitely doing better than Bush was,” Alkhateeb said of Obama. Alkhateeb’s views on foreign relations align with the Democrats, he said, while he prefers Republican ideals on domestic issues.

Alkhateeb’s assessment of Obama: “In terms of domestic policy, I don’t think he’s really doing much good for the country right now,” he said. “We don’t have to ‘hero worship’ the guy.”

Alkhateeb it is reported is a socialist and is offended by the description of Obama as a socialist. Even the socialists don’t want anything to do with Obama anymore.

He’s honored by Shepard Fairey’s assessment of his Joker picture, but disagrees with some of Fairey’s comments criticizing the message of the Socialism poster.

“He made a picture of Bush as a vampire,” Alkhateeb said about Fairey. “That’s kind of speaking with two faces.”

Regardless, Alkhateeb does agree with the Obama “Hope” artist about “socialism” being the wrong caption for the Joker image. “It really doesn’t make any sense to me at all,” he said. “To accuse him of being a socialist is really … immature. First of all, who said being a socialist is evil?”

Another story which will be downplayed by Big Media because of race is The Gun story. Recall the attack on a protester at a town hall event. The attack featured racial epithets of the “n” word variety. But the man attacked was black and he was protesting against Obama – so no Big Media story for you.

The Gun story is another instance of guns taken to Obama events. In earlier events the gun packing papa was interviewed by the leg tingler on MSNBC and much noise was made about potential attacks on Obama.

In Phoenix, Arizona there was a man outside an Obama publicity stunt with an ominous rifle clearly visible. The man does not like Obama’s health care scam nor gun control. Unfortunately for Big Media, the man is not white. The gun-toting papa is African-American – so no Big Media story for you.

We could be comical and accuse Big Media of racism for refusing to interview black men while providing much publicity to white men.

Outside the Phoenix Convention Center, protesters held signs against Obama’s health care proposals while others are calling for a withdrawal of troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.

One protester who didn’t want to give his name was walking around with a rifle in full view.

“I’m exercising my right as an American in Arizona,” he said. “I’m actually totally against healthcare in this way, in this manner, stealing it from people. I don’t think that’s appropriate.”

The man also carried a hand gun on his hip and a round of ammunition in his back pocket, all completely legal.

He said he’s fighting both health care and his right to carry a firearm in public.

“I come from another state where open carry is legal, but no one does it, so police don’t really know about it, and they harass people and arrest people falsely,” he said. “In America, people have the ability to fight back and resist.”

Black men who do not like Obama will be shunted aside as a non-story by Big Media. “People of color” (an odious phrase) are generally exempt from Big Media scrutiny too if they don’t like Obama. White people who don’t support Obama will be featured racists on the evening news.
